As I am on holiday - but even if I was home - I do not watch/follow news...

But one of my friends from Chile who teaches in China posted today some very disturbing post...and I heard about this virus

 

What are your thoughts on this? If you have any?

At the moment ALL world governments are trying to keep a positive view on this matter. They are also colaborating with each other in

hopes to contain as much as possible this new deadly virus.

One thing is for sure, the Chinese government are not telling the whole truth to outsiders, so as to not scare people into a worldwide panic.

But the fact is the death toll is much higher than is being said and ALOT more people have been infected.

 

With todays global traveling by jet airlines more and more people are spreading the virus.  - All it needs is one person on the airplane with the virus

sitting in their seat for more than 3+ hours to infect the rest of the passengers (and crew). Airplanes re-circulate the air inside and are pressurized, which means

if you got one person with a virus,  alot more inside those airplanes will be carrying it too.

 

Some people are more immune than others to these things, but this new virus has so far killed 80+ people and is spreading worldwide. The Death toll is rising and

no cure has been found yet.

This whole thing kind of sounds like that film "World War Z", but do NOT WORRY that people will be turning into zombies.

There are no zombies in this matter.

 

This is a deadly virus which kills by destroying your immune system and respiratory system (Lungs etc.).

 

CHECK often your local news broadcasts and/or radio.

Look at this website - https://www.cdc.gov/...ov/summary.html

If you know of someone infected - contact your local police and hospital as soon as possible. This is serious !

 

 

One good thought to think about is  that we have specialized people that deal with these sorts of virus and they may find the cure - or

at least "something" that will give a little comfort to those which have already been infected.

 

Be safe , and live safe 

and DON´T PANIC ! ( not yet)

I'm finding the spread of the virus really interesting. This isn't going to be the one to wipe out massive populations, like millions, but now we know the one that will, which will have a higher mortality rate, will spread really damn quick and it's quite scary.
I'm not worried but I'm taking precautions, like washing my hands whenever I can. Even though I'm healthy and very unlikely to die if I had it, I'd hate to spread it to someone that does die.
I hope everyone realises this and gets used to being really on point with hygiene.

So what do we think about the virus being a bioweapon and/or leaking from the lab located 20miles from where the outbreak started?
I’ve been reading some wild conspiracies online lol

Paranoia and sinophobia tbh. So much surrounding this is, e.g. that it started because Chinese people eat """crazy""" food. The virus isn't that deadly. Way less deadly than sars. The symptoms are pretty much what you get if you get the flu or a bad cold, and most of the people who have died from it are elderly (and would have a high chance of dying from the flu / a cold). I think the most important things to do are a) use it as a reminder to keep good hygiene, especially around babies / the elderly, and b) use it as an opportunity to educate yourself on sinophobia and how outbreaks like this become racialised (think ebola), and keep your friends and relatives in check if they show those sentiments. There are really horrific stories about how asian people were treated with the outbreak of sars.

yea, i had a moment of being really worried but i'm not too worried now tbh. it seems to act like the common flu, which already kills thousands of people every year but no one talks about that. the only problem is that i work in a very very public-facing job, and i have a very weak immune system so.... yikes hahah

i'd try not to worry too much - lots of people have recovered, it's mainly babies, older people and people with serious pre-existing health conditions that will be badly affected. of course that's awful too, but as many as 61,000 people die from the regular flu each year and nobody worries too much about that. just keep washing your hands as much as you can, take your vitamins and drink plenty of water  :)

thank you for reassuring me, I appreciate :) I'm on anxiety medication and sometimes it just takes over me but I have too many things on my head to be worried about something like that
