Corona virus - it's simple

lored02:
unfortunately coronavirus is dangerous now for humanity...
why is it transmitted so easily if doctors said it's less dangerous than avian influenza?

Because it can passed a week or more before showing symptoms.

Seriously, where do you get informed without knowing that? FOX & Fiends?

Johns Hopkins Study: USA More Prepared for Pandemic Than Any Other Country

Such crap is killing people right now and many more in the next weeks.

No nation is prepared for a pandemic by a new virus.

"opposite" fear mongering is as bad as real fear mongering as it lulls people into a false sense of security.

If a politician opens his moth you know they are lying.
Same thing with most one sided organisations as you know they only have a single agenda and it is not the people.

USA now has 100k confimed cases, China has 80k but China has a much larger population and has been testing people like crazy unlike the USA.

The UK is stopping or at least pausing treating cancer patients with chemotherapy. The reasoning seems to be that with a compromised immune system going to hospital for chemo is more dangerous than going untreated. This will be a pretty dark place to be for many cancer sufferers.

News from NYC is depressing. One doctor said they were finding it in lots of unexpected patients e.g. car accident patient comes in and scan revealed they also have Covid-19. The NYC doctors were also clear that people of all ages were being affected, they were saying that fit people between 30-50 with no underlying medical conditions were dying.

Here is a map from John Hopkins showing distribution;

This thought provoking video shows a variety of simulations that is very informative about how actions like personal hygiene, going to a market, quarantining people etc. might affect the spread of an infection. The results are not always what you might expect.

That map is waaaay behind the numbers as it does not show all areas and the cases confirmed.

It is being reported that 21 million Chinese cell phone accounts have been closed in the last three months. china cell phone accounts at DuckDuckGo

It says *more *prepared.

Yes, it is. I don't know the political orientation of JH.

“USA now has 100k confimed cases,”

That cannot be true, it’s democratic fake news.

15 is the number and soon it will be 0 ‘or less’.

The economy is gooder than it has ever been.

And please don’t refer to this as “The Trump Epidemic”.

It is an MSNBC lie that the president was given a briefing on the virus by the pentagon two months ago.
This is the real fact as he never attends those briefings.

All of this was caused by the most expensive Chinese meal ever, ‘Bat’.

That's the point, ranking inability to handle a situation is rather pointless.

Mr Redhead attributed the high CFR to the alleged bad preparedness in Italy and Spain.
Let's see how the preparedness of the mouth compares to the preparedness in the hospitals.

Hic Rhodus, hic salta.

It's just getting started here in Trumpland, not just the spread but actually testing people since after all the whole thing was just going to blow over by next Wednesday if not sooner and really the flu kills more people, it's all fake news by the lugenpresse that dear leader warned us about in 2016.

More prepared for "the pandemic"? REALLY? We don't even know where we're at wrt numbers of infected people (the stats are chasing the reality, they are NOT the reality or even close while the numbers climb so fast and are limited to the numbers of tests given.

My hope is that medicines get developed and distro'd before the flattened curves peak, and maybe just maybe the stupid rich will see investing in medical research actually is in their interest at which point they tell their BOUGHT politicians to quit cutting that budget.

Missus noticed something watching two different news conferences.

Trudope (Canadian Plonker) had his aids at decent distance from him during his (social distancing).
El-Cheeto (Putin puppet) had his aids very close by during his (zero social distance).

Well here is hoping it works out well for Trudope.
And there is zero hope for the other guy.

Who Knows we may get an early reprieve from another 4 years :astonished:
