Title: COVID-19

Discussing theories, especially ones considered harmful by the vast majority of users and moderators will not be tolerated in this topic. They have caused most of the fights surrounding this subject. If you want to share theories on COVID-19, do so in the 'Conspiracies' topic.)



General reminders when it comes to the outbreak:

-Wash your hands regularly and just wash up as much as you can. One of the easiest way to contract the virus is through contact with your hands, and then touching any part of your face (Like your eyes, nose, or mouth).

-If you know anyone who has the virus, do not come into direct contact with them. And if you are diagnosed with the disease yourself, please do whatever you can to STAY AT HOME. Even if you don't have the virus yourself, you should abide by the stay at home laws and only go out if it's for a really important reason.

-Just don't be stupid. Stockpiling isn't something you should be doing. All that does is making sure people who very well need the stuff you're buying in mass don't come out with anything. Don't lick door handles or...toilet seats to prove a point, it's not sane or healthy to do that. Don't be racist either, this virus can and will affect anyone, not just a single group. Likewise, there's no single group, country or even person to blame in this.

Coronavirus hasn't been around long enough to know for sure, but the virus as a whole so far is really only worrying for people already in poor health since it brings on pneumonia symptoms, but already, pneumonia is something healthy people can fight so if you got the right immune system you should be okay. If we're gonna be real, we should be worrying about the Flu more right now.

Yeah, the flu is definitely an underrated virus. It's caused a significantly higher number of deaths than the coronavirus, at least in the U.S.

As of right now, 805 people have died due to the virus. I see this only getting worse from here, though doctors are getting closer to developing some sort of treatment.

But think about this: in 1820, there was a plague. In 1920, there was a plague. It's 2020, and there's a coronavirus.

Is this the PLAGUE!?!?!?!?!?!

There are over 300 people in Italy and about 50 in Iran, with 12 fatalities.
A (potentially fake) leaked document from the Health Minister of Iran to the Supreme Leader says that there are actually 9761 confirmed cases and 468 dead (I speak Persian so I can read it and translate it):

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/670673641377103874/681607013834424352/image0.jpg?width=376&height=396)

It may be fake, but it is not surprising if it is true. Iran's culture encourages lying to hide failure in something, I speak with Iranians nearly every day in our native language.

What is guaranteed is that Iran is hiding it. No way a country with only 50 cases has led to travellers returning from it and infecting SEVEN countries: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Canada, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, and Oman.

Wednesday the first case of Corona was confirmed here in Brazil, I saw in the news : some people complained that there was no monitoring at the airports even on flights arriving from countries with confirmed cases of Corona, what also worries me are the Fake News, in the family group in Whatsapp (the place where there is more fake news in the world, believe me), videos have been sent of "hundreds of people suddenly dying in Wuhan in the middle of a shopping mall" and a photo of a "specialist" blaming bat soup for the virus
What was disclosed in the first case was that a 61-year-old man spent 11 days in Italy (02/09 - 02/22) in a region where he had several cases of the disease, he returned to Brazil and, oddly enough, participated in a meeting with family and friends who gathered around 30 people, 2 days later the man felt the symptoms and went to the hospital, the case of the Corona was then confirmed on Wednesday, he is currently quarantined at home with his wife (who willingly decided to stay at the house, but has no direct contact with him); about 46 people who had contact with him (30 from the meeting and 16 passengers on the flight he came to Brazil), health organizations "monitor" people every day by calling and asking if they have a cough, fever or something like

Even with only one case in São Paulo, in Brazil everyone is alert, this may even have a good side, people get more hygiene habits, wash their hands more, use gel alcohol, which makes it difficult to contamination by other types of more common diseases
Even so it is good to be careful, the government said that it will not limit the passage of people across borders or flights due to economic reasons even from countries with cases of Coronavirus, and this worries, at least there should be a more rigorous inspection

First US death in my state.

I’m not concerned about catching it, it’s not very deadly unless you’re young or old or have a compromised immune system, it’s being extremely over dramatized, I’m more concerned about what it’s doing to the stock market

Most are asymptomatic carriers. They do not realise they are sick until they start getting symptoms — and in some cases they never do end up showing symptoms at all despite being able to spread the disease. That is the difficult part with this type of coronavirus and mirrors the H1N1 (swine flu) pandemic in 2009. That ended up infecting somewhere between 15-20% of the world's population and yet the vast majority of those people had absolutely no idea, because either it seemed normal to them and they never got tested or they never actually had any symptoms.

There is unlikely to ever be a "cure" for a respiratory illness like the coronaviruses. This particular strand, COVID-19, is a virus similar to the flu, but more severe in the elderly. It is treated the same way as you would treat a flu though. Some people will have no symptoms at all or very light ones and be fine after a little bit. Others will develop more severe symptoms, especially pneumonia and difficulty breathing, which will lead to them needing oxygen assistance lest they die.

I hate the people who say stuff like "It's only bad if you have an underlying heath condition" because they think them having it is fine but they could literally spread it to people with health conditions and it's scary. Yes, "more people die of flu" but flu hasn't killed off the old people I know, but COVID-19 will if they get it!


Title: Re: Coronavirus
Post by: Phil on March 08, 2020, 02:42:09 AM
The problem is that you really shouldn't worry or freak out if you get it and are pretty much healthy, instead you need to contain it, not spread it around and pretty much treat it like you would a bad sickness. People need to chill because if they don't, we'll just keep having stockpiling issues and then people who very well may need the supplies more won't have anything. Overreacting is one of the top problems, period.

Yes but the point is you can pass it onto someone who can die. All my grandparents could die from it. And, people with asthma despite the age could die. People think because they're safe from it they can run around naked without washing and still survive. They could, but it's so so selfish.

This is just in case there's someone in attendance with traces of it so that other people there plus the players don't get it. If a player is tested and confirmed to have it I'd assume NCAA would straight up ban them from playing in MM. And if all players start to get it then I guess no march madness period.

The one in Calfornia, right?  About time...

I found out through research that American Insurance Companies are only covering testing, NOT treatment.  This means that somebody who's poor or homeless is not even going to bother getting tested.  The last thing they want is to be deemed infected and be unable to go to the job that they depend on for survival.  

They're (the poor) are going to end up becoming the super spreaders, spreading the virus to those who refused to give them health insurance, making everybody get sick at the same time.

Yes, a cure for a disease would be a vaccine that would completely prevent any new symptoms, or easily remove it. Treatment helps take away the disease and ease symptoms, but doesn’t eradicate it

That’s not how it works though. Maybe for things like intelligence or anxiety, where if you say you’re dumb over and over, you will start to feel dumb. Or if you focus only on how anxious you are you will feel worse. Those are INTERNAL though. Coronavirus is EXTERNAL. It doesn’t care what you think, nor does it know. It doesn’t attack those who are afraid, it attacks anyone exposed to it. Saying “I’m safe against the coronavirus, I’m not scared” can help you stay relaxed, but it won’t help you at all on actually staying virus free. It’s on your ACTIONS whether or not you’ll get it. Don’t travel, wash your hands, stay out of crowds. That’s how you prevent the virus. Not with mindset. Though I am a fervent believer in mindset, it will not keep you from getting the virus in this case.

A lot of Muslims will look for others to blame sadly, but of course many won't too. Just remember that the Quran always tells us to wash our hands and be clean anyways, and that a Hadith says if a plague is in a place we live, not to leave where we live to avoid spreading it.

I guess there's people who have it in the Netherlands too, even a close family member of someone at my school, but what worries me more is what's being done against it.

To be honest, personally the countermeasures are starting to annoy me. As of yesterday, anyone in the country who sneezes, coughs or has a runny nose needs to stay at home and nearly all clubs and events are cancelled, including sports clubs. All libraries are also closed, and people are buying out all of the canned food and toilet paper in the supermarkets. Any day now the announcement may come that all schools will close down as well, right as I'm about to go into the test week. Already the school is advising to take everything home with you every day, in case the school gets shut down, and half the classes were cancelled or had substitute teachers because the teachers stayed home over a slight cold. Now I like extra free time as much as anyone, but it's kind of not as fun if you're just sitting in a half-empty classroom with nothing to do.

In about a month, I'll have my final exams... if they don't get cancelled because of the virus. I really hope I still get to make my exams and go to university next year, but I'm not sure now. And there's nothing I can do about it. It drives me up the wall.

There have been multiple cases in my city already. My school district closed down because people from 2 separate high schools(not mine tho) have cases. No online classes, just delaying everything for one month.
My dad's saying that viruses like there only get exponentially worse, and we're only at the tip of the iceberg. Sure, there may be some preliminary vaccines being tested, but that'll take a long time.
This disease won't just be a page in the history book. It'll have a history book.

The government just announced that all the schools in the Netherlands, along with all sports clubs and restaurants and such, will remain closed for at least the next three weeks.

They make an exception for children of parents in 'vital' functions, which is stuff like healthcare and emergency personnel, so that they don't have to stay home to watch their kids. My parents don't fall in that category though.

They've also announced that people in their final year of high school (including me) will get some sort of special consideration, but they haven't said yet what that will be, and mentioned they'll announce it later.

I kept hoping they'd just close the schools and get it over with, so I didn't have that looming over me all the time. Now they've closed them and I STILL have no certainty about what's going to happen!

A high school student in Dunedin caught the virus and that school is closed for 48 hours, hoping no one else was infected there (mind you they are in isolation so they shouldn't have been in contact with anyone)

Though I do agree many are overreacting, if you don't put in extreme measures to control it (because it is far more contagious than influenza) then you will end up like Italy. In Italy, obituaries in Lombardia have gone from being 2 pages to 10 pages long. Or take Iran, where mass graves had to be built in Qom. Or China, where so many bodies were being cremated (cremation is customary for most people in China) in Hubei that it was detectable from space. It's little things like this that show that, though it's not going to kill even close to most of the people it affects, the people it will affect are going to be hurt. So we have to prepare but be cautious.

And as for in the elderly...well, then it's a gigantic issue, which is why that one Washington state retirement home has had nearly a dozen deaths alone! It's an issue for them, but not for me or you.

The USA's government and the CDC could have taken earlier precautions, they could have actually been testing people for weeks now, but no, they are not because they want all tests to be made in the United States and not given to them internationally. Now the USA has reported 100+ deaths and cases are increasing exponentially, or worse (New York state went from 900 to 1700 in one day). And you cannot be tested unless you have symptoms or are a celebrity, so the actual number of cases is likely 40-60% higher because of how those are the amount that are asymptomatic. Good luck Americans. Your entire nation will probably be quarantined soon to avoid becoming like Italy.

Incorrect. His wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, returned from a conference in the United Kingdom and went into self-isolation after showing flu-like symptoms. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has not shown any symptoms but self-isolated just in case.

Sources: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/12/world/canada/trudeau-wife-coronavirus.html, https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/cp-newsalert-trudeau-goes-into-self-isolation-over-covid-19

Despite shortcomings which will hopefully be improved on (the response here isn't as good as South Korea's, for example), the World Health Organisation has said that Canada is one of the top ten performers in the entire world when it comes to COVID-19 testing. (https://nationalpost.com/health/canada-among-top-world-performers-in-testing-for-covid-19-despite-shortcomings) This is despite Canada only being the 20th most affected country in the world.

Canada had tested more than 38K people as of the end of 17 March, whereas in the USA there were only 41K tests done, a marked improvement from the 23K the previous day which does have to be commended because it means Americans are now taking it seriously. However, Canada has 9x less people than the United States and still managed to test ALMOST DOUBLE more in number until yesterday.  (https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus-testing-source-data)

The reason for that is because states like Florida are suppressing new information, forcing sheriffs to have to individually reveal that the number of cases is 5x higher than reported by the state government (https://flaglerlive.com/151469/chitwood-coronavirus/), and because the CDC refused to use tests made by the WHO and wanted to use tests made in the United States only (https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/03/16/cdc-who-coronavirus-tests/).

I calculated it for my own research, but in case anyone is curious, the % of cases that have died in all countries with over 100 cases of COVID-19. In (brackets) is the # of deaths. There were also deaths in a few countries with less than 100 cases, but I didn't include them because they are too changed by just one death (Sudan is at 50.0% because it had 2 cases and 1 was fatal):

Canada has surpassed 1K cases today. A majority of the cases are Canadians returning from travel, because the government officially called all Canadians to return, but we are seeing more and more community spread unfortunately and I really hope that it doesn't spread too much, or if it does, that the precautions we have taken in place will prevent it from getting too bad.

The USA has more than 5K cases today alone, second only to Italy in new cases, and the day is still ongoing though...stay safe Americans. And anyone else affected of course.

Our humanities project (History, RE and Geography) is to make my own country and that's the only exciting thing we got set. But it's long and you have to write about laws and everything, including history from your country and what religion those people follow. Luckily, Miss told us to just do the Geography bit so yay.

Yeah. Sadly the biggest misconception and why they are being bought in mass is because people believe they will have no chance of contracting the virus. I guess I can understand why since some people may very well believe wearing it will prevent infection, but I've seen a bunch of doctors and people on TV say it doesn't do anything so I have no idea with what their mindset is.

The virus doesn't attack infants and toddlers as aggressively like the adults and the elders...

Yes, but every virus is different. Mutated strains of H1N1, such as that in 1918, actually killed people in their 20s and 30s more than anyone else, making it particularly deadly. COVID-19 can be a threat to young people, but without underlying health conditions it usually is not. It is very uncommon for people under 10 to even have symptoms. This is particularly dangerous because these children can pass it on to the elderly without even knowing it.

As long as there's no easy access to a vaccine that also does no harm to the user then yes sadly, we're in for the long haul. Thankfully, it turns out in doing the research for the virus and a future vaccine/treatment, this has been the fastest process in creating a new major vaccine ever.

Without context you're going to make people believe that they blocked it because the benefits aren't deserving. They blocked it because it doesn't help enough towards smaller businesses.

I made this map. You guys may find it informative. The purpose is to calculate the fatality % of all cases in a given country; I only calculate it for countries with over 100 cases, because otherwise it's too small of a size and too variable to make any conclusions from.

(https://i.imgur.com/pntZcRi.png)

The highest five, with the number of deaths in (brackets):

1. San Marino - 11.23% (21)
2. Italy - 9.86% (6820)
3. Iraq - 8.54% (27)
4. Indonesia - 8.02% (55)
5. Iran - 7.79% (1934)

The microstate of San Marino, surrounded entirely by Italy, has been the worst affected country. 0.56% of the country has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and 0.05% have died from it, higher than anywhere else in the world in both cases.

In the spoiler below is the full dataset I calculated for anyone interested. Again, countries with under 100 cases are not calculated.

San Marino - 11.23% (21)
Italy - 9.86% (6820)
Iraq - 8.54% (27)
Indonesia - 8.02% (55)
Iran - 7.79% (1934)
Algeria - 7.20% (19)
Spain - 7.04% (2808)
Philippines - 6.34% (35)
United Kingdom - 5.22% (422)
Egypt - 4.98% (20)
Netherlands - 4.96% (276)
France - 4.93% (1110)
Hungary - 4.81% (9)

Yeah I update once a day, and then I reload the page and find it's already updated and the % are inaccurate for one country or another. This time (around 19:00-20:00 EST or 00:00-01:00 GMT) is the best time to update though if it's once a day because that's when the vast majority of countries have stopped giving updates. Usually a few US states and a few countries in LatAm will give them in the next hour or two, and then nothing for a few hours..before it all starts up again with Japan, China, New Zealand, South Korea, etc.

Brazil is already in chaos

Suspended Classes
Most of the places are closed
It is recommended that no one leaves your home, especially people over 60
We already have about 2000 cases
We have about 35 deaths
No football matches
In my state if I am not mistaken there is a death and a little less than 40 cases
And we can't do Covid-19 tests in everyone, only in more severe cases, because we have no money to buy them
And to finish, the main Tv channel in Brazil, Globo, stopped broadcasting football games and even recording soap operas and even abruptly changed the programming, from early morning until mid afternoon there are only news, where ALL the news that I saw are talking about the Coronavirus or talking badly about the president (or both)

If we look at it from how many people live on earth, which is over 7 billion then yes it's not a lot but for this number to rocket in just what, 3 or so months? It's pretty scary and will definitely climb higher to probably millions upon millions of cases worldwide by the time this epidemic is said and done.

For some good news, apparently scientist have said that this virus is not mutating fast enough at all to have to have it use different vaccines every year, meaning once a vaccine is made that should be the only type/one just like it to have to be produced to fight the sickness, unlike the Flu which usually needs new type of vaccines yearly.

I looked for more videos about him and read the comments in Dr. Phil's video:

"I went to highschool with Larz and he was so rude and disrespectful. We clowned on him for BRAGGING about his “social media following” because he had like... MAYBE 1,000 followers. We weren’t bullying him for being himself, it was because he was cocky and rude."

"tbh Larz deserves to be bullied"

"On behalf of the lgbt community, we don’t claim these clowns."

"he looks like he doesn’t shower and eats cheeto puffs and drinks coke for breakfast"

This guy is very hate-able

The number of cases in Mississippi is increasing drastically. Two weeks ago, there weren't hardly any cases. About a week ago, there were less than 50. Now, there are almost 500!

So I have a pretty good reason to panic.

Well when a country as big as America doesn't do the absolute best fast enough and it causes community spread to happen, the numbers are just bound to skyrocket sadly. :/

You have all the right to panic but saying that this is the end of humanity is sorta overreacting no offence...

This is not the flu. It is killing more people than the flu EVERY DAY now in your country;  I don't understand how you can have 300+ people dying a day and say "people are overreacting!". Not to mention that it is growing EXPONENTIALLY.

Additionally, almost every single one of those 1/5 recovered are in China; two weeks ago, ~60% of all cases had recovered; it has not taken long at all for that to fall drastically to ~20%...

My teacher said Americans could have invented the virus in laboratory to start a war. I find it kinda true due to this fact: Viruses die at temperature of 30 degrees Celsius and above. But how then how come there are cases in Iran and Australia?
The virus is everywhere though, not just those two places, also why would America have something against Australia?? I'd maybe believe it if the virus started IN Iran, but the fact it started in China and it's mainly believed it was because of consumption of random animals from an Asian market there, gives me heavy doubts this is true.

The other thing is that Iran isn't even a hot country, it was snowing in the capital a few days ago. Afghanistan borders Iran and we are similar (tho Afghanistan is even colder). The mountains make all but the southern portions of both countries cold for most of the year.

If you tell others that it's actually created by the United States to kill Chinese and Iranians, then there are many legal issues with that in the United States, where this forum was based. "Freedom of speech" doesn't apply everywhere; and it actually is rendered completely null on this site, because websites do not have to have freedom of speech, as Matt has said in the past.

Please stop pardoning conspiracy theories in this topic. It’s DANGEROUS!!! This virus is very harmful and anyone that says things that are objectively false in the type of statement that sounds like a fact (“I was told”, “Maybe the reason why it spreads”, etc) can mislead someone and put them at serious risk. Saying that the virus originated in American labs is VERY false, and in some cases if this belief is too widespread it could make the person at risk of interference or worse. Thumbs up guy was saying some very dangerous things. In this time, where we are at a serious worldwide crisis, the US government could take statements like that seriously.

To be honest, I don't think the US government would care much at all if he said that. They would probably just think it's a kid talking on a forum.

That doesn’t matter. Any misinformation about the virus can be taken seriously at this point. Do you remember the trend on Twitter where someone said that hand sanitizer doesn’t protect against the virus since it’d anti bacterial? Millions of people believed that person, pitting so many at risk for the virus as they aren’t taking care of themselves. And you don’t know that the government wouldn’t care. This type of misinformation is slander and can be illegal. You shouldn’t underestimate this kind of stuff Jebz. It’s really serious. The government doesn’t know or care if it’s “just a kid talking”. They take this seriously if they know about it. And yes. They are in trouble, because this as I said is very VERY bad.

No, but it is the worst in most of our lifetimes. The last time something happened of this scale was potentially as far back as World War II (1939-1945); maybe the climax of the Cold War too, but that never actually amounted to anything.

My mother and grandparents even said they haven’t experienced anything like this before. My grandparents weren’t born until after world war 2 so they wouldn’t have experienced it then. I highly doubt anything like this will happen again, or has happened before since the war

It really isn't.

I'm not saying the people who died in 9/11 mean nothing. May they return to God.

But how is that in any way comparable to a worldwide pandemic?

Go and ask a Brazilian, Chinese, Italian, or Nigerian if 9/11 affected them. They will say no (the Italian might say that his country sent a few troops to Afghanistan but that's all). Ask them if COVID-19 has. They will say yes.

By the end of today, COVID-19 will have killed more Americans than 9/11. There were 2977 American victims in the attacks in 2011. As of this post, 2854 Americans have died due to COVID-19; over the past few days, the average number of Americans passing due to COVID-19 has surged and on Saturday, 525 Americans died from it in one day (a decline to 363 was reported yesterday, but for a variety of reasons, this isn't going to become a trend for a while unfortunately). So yes, this is much bigger than 9/11, which had no casualties outside of the United States...

Brother E: That's not really true. A lot of people from other countries talk about the USA.


I said the world doesn't revolve around it. 9/11 was bad for the United States, but it affected almost nobody else.

Either way, 9/11 was an absolutely terrible event and has affected the lives of so many Americans. But, in the grand scheme of things it isn’t the worst thing in the world that’s happened, not something that affected many people outside of the US. Comparing this virus to the attack is not a good idea because it didn’t really shut down as many businesses as this right now, and the virus is now in so many countries affecting millions.

Hopefully COVID-19 means we can be more prepared for future coronaviruses as well. SARS and MERS were already bad, but because they ended up being much smaller, nobody ever cared enough into trying to find a vaccine or treatment.

Coronaviruses are notoriously difficult to find treatment for as antibodies do not work, but they are also very unlikely to mutate due to how the RNA works, which means that if the entire world focuses on it we should be able to find treatment eventually.

Nobody here was born at that time period.

Also, this virus will go away quickly. No need to worry, as none of you will get it. Even if someone gets it, recovery takes usually less than a week. The symptoms include coughing, fever, and shortness of breath. We all had these at one point, right?

"Much" is the key word sadly; a lot of young people are using this as an excuse to believe that they're immune, and then get shocked when they hear of the few rare cases that can and do happen of perfectly healthy people aged 18 or 24 dying from complications with this virus.

In some states it is. In the United States and Canada, education is something that the state or provincial governments take care of.

For example, in Canada, the province of Alberta has closed schools for the rest of the year. Mine  (Ontario) just says "indefinitely". New Brunswick is until mid-April, for now, they will definitely extend it.

Since I know there's a few user's on here who, for some reason, say COVID-19 is just the flu, guess what?:

https://www.statnews.com/2018/09/26/cdc-us-flu-deaths-winter/

Those are stats from the 2017/2018 winter, in which 80K people in the U.S died from the Flu. It was apparently, as the article says, the worst flu year in 40 years. 80K deaths is a lot, sure, but the problem here is that, experts in one of the last Coronavirus conferences, said by the time we hit the peak of cases in the U.S (which is in like a couple of WEEKS), the death toll will get up to about 200K deaths!! This many deaths (In the U.S alone) are predicted for a couple of weeks whereas the Flu that season of 2017/2018 killed again 80K and that number was counted over MONTHS, not a couple of weeks, straight up the entire Flu season which is like 5 months long or something, not to mention that that year was just an unusually large death number to occur. In that same article they say  that in some bad Flu seasons, the death toll usually makes just over 50K deaths.

This virus is something to take seriously! Stop complaining about the Government doing a crappy job and sit through the stay at home orders like the rest of us. Remember too that they also predicted that if America didn't do anything period (Like you wish for some stupid bleeping reason) The death toll would be in the millions.

Good luck getting to their heads. The ones who said it was just a flu and were logical have already changed their minds by now; the people still saying it's just a flu, overreaction, etc. are too inept to have the message be heard. COVID-19 is already killing 3x more Americans than the flu does on an average basis. I've seen the stupidest arguments for it too. "Forcing people to stay inside is communism!!" No, it's called COMMON SENSE.

I make a worldwide version for multiple sites, as I've shown here once, but since this forum has tons of Americans and also a sizable amount of Canadians, I'll share this. It's pretty low quality since this is the first day I've done this and I'm still figuring out where to place the label. I'll fix the background next day I do this.

The % is how many have died out of all confirmed cases; the number in brackets is the number of deaths.

That article still states "Researchers noted the death rate for coronavirus is still “substantially higher” than the flu, which leads to death in 0.1% of cases."

0.1% isn't big at all. In fact, it's very small.

As well as "“Even though the fatality rate is low for younger people, it is very clear that any suggestion of COVID-19 being just like influenza is false,” Shigui Ruan, a professor in the department of mathematics at the University of Miami, wrote in an accompanying commentary."

Math has nothing to do with the virus.
Unless you're talking about the percentage of the virus cases, then no. Even that doesn't have much relevance to math whatsoecer.

You could at least try to read your own article and save yourself the embrassement lol

The title is far more important in the article.

As someone who has a math degree, I beg to differ. Here is an article which explains the math used to model epidemics which includes differential equations, graph theory, and probability.
https://towardsdatascience.com/the-mathematics-of-epidemiology-fa0ba15e44a2

Compared to these areas of math percentages are very boring. For further reading, here is an article which shows how to use differential equations to model the spread of diseases.
https://www.public.asu.edu/~hnesse/classes/sir.html

This next article discusses how graph theory is used to model epidemics. Note: the article uses the word network rather than graph, but it's the same thing.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1578276/

Probability theory can also be used in the modeling of pandemics as discussed in this article.
http://ww3.haverford.edu/mathematics/lbutler/glossary/bayes.html

These last two articles use these areas of mathematics to create some interesting simulations which model the spread of viruses, in a way that even a high school student, or in your case a high school dropout, can understand, even without a solid understanding of the areas of math just mentioned. The first article is fairly basic, but the second article has more interesting simulations that are interactive. Both are worth reading, but if you can only read one, read the second.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/world/corona-simulator/
https://meltingasphalt.com/interactive/outbreak/

Here is a Youtube video with further simulations.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxAaO2rsdIs

Lastly, here is a video which shows how viruses spread, at a lower level than the first 4 articles I linked. After watching the video you should have a basic understanding of how pandemics grow, and what phrases like "flatten the curve" mean.

In the UK, an old man with pre existing conditions BEAT it. Elsewhere, a healthy 18 year old died from it. Even a 13 year old died.

The good thing about mathematics is that everything has an objectively correct answer, though there are many correct ways to get that answer.
All of the articles I linked in my post are backed up by scientific evidence. If the models disagreed with the data than the mathematical model would be invalid and would have to be reworked if not discarded.
I will refute your last point in two weeks from now.

Not necessarily. When someone come if contact with someone who has the virus their isn't necessarily.a 50/50 chance that the infected person will pass along the virus. The probability that an infected person passes the virus along to any one healthy person is called the transmission rate. Based on data a good approximation for the transmission rate for this virus is 20% -30%, far less than 50/50. The fatality rate for this virus is also less than 50/50. Data shows that the fatality rate for this virus increases with age. Based on your numbers, we can conclude that 50% * 50% = 25% of the population will die of the coronavirus, which we can conclude isn't reasonable.

Which 10 countries have the highest fatality rates for COVID-19? (# of deaths in brackets)

1. San Marino - 12.75% (32)
2. Italy - 12.25% (14681)
3. Democratic Republic of the Congo - 10.81% (16)
4. France - 10.11% (6507)
5. Netherlands - 9.46% (1487)
6. United Kingdom - 9.45% (3605)
7. Spain - 9.39% (11198)
8. Indonesia - 9.11% (181)
9. Algeria - 8.97% (105)
10. Belgium - 6.82% (1143)

In comparison...

15. Iran - 6.19% (3294)
29. China - 4.07% (3322)
31. Brazil - 3.95% (363)
39. Mexico - 3.31% (50)
50. United States - 2.67% (7371)
57. Japan - 2.41% (63)
74. Canada - 1.49% (187)
78. Germany - 1.40% (1275)
84. Saudi Arabia - 1.23% (25)
89. Norway - 1.10% (59)
104. Russia - 0.82% (34)
113. Israel - 0.54% (40)

The further you go down this list, with few exceptions (such as Israel, which is low due to its high development but also young population, very rare in the world), the countries took more and more precautions to combat against COVID-19.

Stay home and stay safe.

Italy's healthcare system was ranked the 2nd best in the world, but that's meaningless when you run out of hospitals. That can happen anywhere if people aren't careful.

This article talks about the reasons why naming diseases is different now:
“ Laura Spinney: “One of the few certainties we have about the Spanish Flu Pandemic is that it didn’t start in Spain. We actually don’t know where it did start – but we know it didn’t start in Spain. The Spanish felt, and to a very great degree were, stigmatised by this.

In 2015, the World Health Organisation (WHO) put out guidelines for how to name a disease. I think the motivation for that was mainly to avoid this kind of stigmatisation, this kind of kneejerk naming of a disease after the place it appears to first manifest itself, or the sector of the population or the animal it first appears in. Because remember, in 2009, H1N1 flu was initially called “swine flu”.

The swine flu name was unhelpful in many ways. For example, the Egyptian government ordered the slaughter of the country’s swine herd, which was mainly the property of the minority of Coptic Christians in that country, so their local economy was wiped out in one stroke. And in fact, by the time it was in humans, it was a disease that was being transmitted from human to human so it made no difference either. And in fact, to go back a little bit further in history, that swine flu was given to pigs by humans in 1918. So it came back from pigs to humans in 2009, you know, ironic historical reprisal.

In part that is true, not all masks are efficient, most of those who hang around the internet are inefficient. For a mouthpiece to be efficient it must be made of a permeable material and with an exclusively air filter (air enters and leaves, but everything other than air does not), they must also be used correctly, they must cover nose, mouth and chin horizontally and if it is a double tone, usually blue and white, the white goes inwards, some have a rod to direct the up and down, the rod goes in the nose and bends to fit the size and form of this, in addition to other factors that may vary depending on the country or region.

Any mask whose material is different or is used differently will definitely lose effectiveness. Unless it is a change that was proven (by health authorities) to be more effective.

Except so far, the flu is worse than coronavirus in terms of death toll / infection rate
Both are incorrect. COVID-19 is currently killing 3x more people in the United States and 11x more people in Italy than influenza usually does per day. It is also far more infectious. The R0 factor is above 3; influenza's is under 2.

You're wrong. I know it's really difficult, but you have to accept it. Repeat it to yourself. "I'm wrong. I'm wrong. I'm wrong." I can tell you're in denial because you pretended that the linked video didn't compare it to influenza when it did; you have to get out of denial and accept facts and logic, for your own good.

If Trump caught the virus I would wish for a swift recovery of course.

It doesn't matter how bad the leaders of a country are; even if they're a dictator. Political turmoil at this time is terrible. Wishing death upon others is as well of course, but everyone understands that socially, even if many will continue to say it.

Yeah I calculate the CFR (case fatality rate) for all countries with over 100 cases and Mexico has shot up from being at 2.69% three days ago to 5.12% today. But when AMLO is busy holding rallies and states are reporting 8x more cases of "viral pneumonia" than usual (hint: it's actually coronavirus) can you be surprised?

Sorry for reply too late, but I have points who you can't take in count. Is true who the mexican states are reporting many more cases of pneumonia than COVID-19, but the pneumonia cases reported during this season is common and the majority of the states are reporting less cases of pneumonia than the last year. So actually there is no enough evidence who the significally of that cases of pneumonia are really the SARS-CoV-2. Unfortunatelly the people with pneumonia can get sick with the SARS-CoV-2, so is important they like the rest of citizens always stay in home.

With respect of the shot up of the letality rate is mainly because the hospitals takes many time to confirm a case of COVID-19 than the low time taked to confirm a death by COVID-19, since they need at least 2 or 3 days to get the analysis to confirm them, so the cases are more real to death cases than confirmed cases at a day and there are people who unfortunately deaths before get the analysis.

And with respect of we deserve a much better government, this happens with all federal and locals governments, we also want to get finally a better government each legislature, personally I have more disgust with locals ones than with the federal, since on case of my city and state the local goverment makes the federal looks good and I'm not talking about smokescreens, and thanks to wish us that!

If companies didn't limit sick leave to 3 days, if restaurant/fast food/retail employees didn't pay employees minimum wage for less then full-time hours and demand an expensive doctor's not to take time off, if colleges permitted makeup examples,  didn't require attendance, made it easy to be excused for illnesses, then we wouldn't need government regulation.

That's up to the professor, but many professors will allow a student to take an exam late if the student has a legitimate reason for needing to do so.

Most of my professors require notice ahead of time where they take it before everyone else, and my anthropology professor enforces a paper in lieu of the exam.

I have never gone to class sick. If I get sick I email the professor saying I won't be able to make it to class, or if I need to miss class for any other reason.

Additionally, many professors will let you take an exam late or turn in an assignment late if needed. All you have to do is email them and ask, assuming you have a legitimate reason. Most professors  won't explicitly say they do this, because they don't want students taking advantage of it, but that doesn't mean they don't.

Sorry for reply too late, but I have points who you can't take in count. Is true who the mexican states are reporting many more cases of pneumonia than COVID-19, but the pneumonia cases reported during this season is common and the majority of the states are reporting less cases of pneumonia than the last year. So actually there is no enough evidence who the significally of that cases of pneumonia are really the SARS-CoV-2. Unfortunatelly the people with pneumonia can get sick with the SARS-CoV-2, so is important they like the rest of citizens always stay in home.

With respect of the shot up of the letality rate is mainly because the hospitals takes many time to confirm a case of COVID-19 than the low time taked to confirm a death by COVID-19, since they need at least 2 or 3 days to get the analysis to confirm them, so the cases are more real to death cases than confirmed cases at a day and there are people who unfortunately deaths before get the analysis.

And with respect of we deserve a much better government, this happens with all federal and locals governments, we also want to get finally a better government each legislature, personally I have more disgust with locals ones than with the federal, since on case of my city and state the local goverment makes the federal looks good and I'm not talking about smokescreens, and thanks to wish us that!

There are so many misconceptions with this comment I don't know where to start.

1) In the past five years, only one country in Africa has had Ebola.

2) In the past ten years, only six countries in Africa have had Ebola (there are 54).

3) The African countries that had Ebola outbreaks are actually the most prepared, due to the systems for extremely contact tracing being in place.

4) Ebola is not spread through the air like this virus; it is spread by transmission of fluids.

5) Under 0.001% of Africans have ever contracted Ebola.

1. Nobody is suggesting everyone stays inside with no exceptions for 2 months though; at least, no goverments are. The only country that has done that so far was China in Hubei ONLY. No other countries have banned leaving home otherwise, it's just been restricted.

Those people are the exact reasons why stay at home orders are in place. On paper, it may seem easy that young people could go out and do whatever they want without spreading it to people who are vulnerable to succumbing to the disease, but in reality, there are just too many people across the world, and in the United States for that to be how the stay at home orders work. It's so unpredictable, and regardless someone young would undoubtedly manage to spread it to an older person/someone with a condition.

She's a nurse in surgeries, so until nonessential surgeries are allowed again, she won't be as busy unless she has to go to the basement to make more face masks and gowns. However, she still has to constantly wear an N95 mask and eye protection.

-Just don't be stupid. Stockpiling isn't something you should be doing. All that does is making sure people who very well need the stuff you're buying in mass don't come out with anything. Don't lick door handles or...toilet seats to prove a point, it's not sane or healthy to do that. Don't be racist either, this virus can and will affect anyone, not just a single group. Likewise, there's no single group, country or even person to blame in this.

my aunty had just had a baby in hospital a few weeks ago, and the nurses told her someone was caught licking the elevator buttons in the hospital :o its just so terrible. why do people do that for. also that person had been tested positive for coronavirus- they're probably just spiteful or something and wanted someone else to get it as well. >:D

America believes in natural selection, that’s why we have terrible healthcare and very few resources to help the poor or homeless who may need care. The richer you are, the more your life is worth here!

This is satire for those who will hate me, but it’s not entirely a joke either
Canada’s healthcare system is worse. Instead of paying, you have to wait a ridiculously long amount of time to get a surgery that your life may depend on. That’s happened to my cousins who live in Canada multiple times. Nothing in life is free

Well that's the governments fault, it's not like they haven't been trying to support small businesses because they really have. Biggest problem is pretty much the fact we haven't had a pandemic at this big of scale in so long everyone alive has never felt affects caused by outbreaks. Whether they'd like to admit it or not, many people will be losing jobs/businesses, in fact people have already been starting to lose such. They need to accept defeat or else they just look like greedy business owners who only care about their income, and not the well-being of others. It sucks, but there's no way of preventing businesses being lost at this point. It's been proven, A lot of people will be unemployed because of this pandemic.

For those who’ve seen the story before, my mother has told me that my youngest brother also had a near death situation in these awful hospitals. apparently when he was choking, the doctors were like “eh he’ll be fine he’s still talking”. and left him alone. He was choking on a candy and it was in a place in his throat where he could breathe, but it could have easily been dislodged and caused him to suffocate. The medical bill we got for that I don’t remember the price, but I do know that for that crappy treatment it was at least 200$

Your cousins in Canada are liars, or you are making this up. Probably both. The healthcare here is astronomically better than your sordid excuse for a healthcare system. There is a reason Canadians live 4.9 years longer on average than Americans and it isn't diet.

This post is so disgusting and you should be ASHAMED of spreading lies.

When my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer even though it was not life-threatening, but could become that, she received surgery within TWO WEEKS and it was gone. It was FREE. She is now healthy. In the United States she would have to pay tens of thousands of dollars (because we cannot afford health insurance), and actually it would take longer because we do not have the money.

At least do your research before making up disgusting lies. You should be ashamed of yourself for spreading misconceptions like this. The healthcare system here saved my mother's life.

In America, healthcare is seen as a commodity, whereas many other countries see access to healthcare is seen as a human right. As a result, many other countries have affordable, if not free healthcare.

Canada has the following that is better than the United States:

- Stronger democracy, including more faith in democratic institutions in the country
- Lower corruption
- Higher freedom of press
- Freedom of expression, rather than just speech
- Longer life expectancy
- Lower income inequality
- Lower crime rate (including homicide rate)

This applies to most countries in central Europe compared to the United States as well, if not all...

I am on phone but I can back this up with sources (I only gave points that I know are true according to certain quantifiable sources). So if you want to know a specific one let me know.

Also, the healthcare is not free. It is paid for by taxes, which is worth it in the eyes of over 90% of this country.

Communism is an ECONOMIC SYSTEM.

The reason China controls its citizens is because it is AUTHORITARIAN.

The similarly AUTHORITARIAN countries of Russia and Turkmenistan (random examples) are CAPITALIST.

The formerly COMMUNIST countries of Mozambique and Afghanistan had almost no such restrictions.

Please learn the difference.

"And Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican whose state reported over 1,200 new infections and a spike in deaths on Monday, announced that gyms, hair salons, bowling alleys, tattoo parlours and massage parlours could reopen on Friday, followed on Monday by movie theatres and restaurants."

I understand loosening restrictions once the number of cases starts DECREASING, but when you are still not at peak and your cases only continue increasing, seriously???

The South apparently had the most amount of people that weren't in quarantine (mostly going out like they would normally) so it makes sense why Georgia had a lot of new infections. It's still a very questionable move for him to reopen facilities when cases and deaths are increasing relatively rapidly.

Someone I know well, told us that she went to the hospital for a checkup of an illness and the doctor decided to randomly diagnose her with coronavirus just because she had similar symptoms (which were explainable due to her actual condition. as in she doesn't have coronavirus, the "similar" symptoms are just linked to the condition she already had) and then he began to be rude to her and he said that they're going to force her to stay in the ward for patients with coronavirus and then over 3 days, make her reliant on a life-machine and then switch it off on her (in other words - kill her)

And then he said really horribly (and this really offended her) that they can do that because, because of her condition she only has 1 year left anyway (which isn't actually true, he plucked that right out the air randomly).

If she hadn't in the end stood up for her rights, she could have died alone and unjustly and much sooner then she should have. But most patients hadn't stuck up for themselves and they saw their life come to an unfair & lonely end (not to mention the grief of their family). I mean, even if they do have coronavirus, is that a reason to kill them??? I don't know about you, but that sounds like somethings wrong to me.

Now what does that exactly suggest?? Maybe coronavirus doesn't actually exist, or at least it isn't as serious as they make it out to be and they're purposefully killing moderately ill patients on purpose, just so they can say in statistics that "hundreds of people have died of coronavirus" just so they can scaremonger and fill the graves they're digging for us on purpose???

May i add that these are the same people that probably believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Want to know how much of the population this is?
“ Seven percent
Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people.”

Title: Re: COVID-19
Post by: Phil on April 26, 2020, 04:24:57 PM
I don't care if conservatives won't believe this, but I truthfully would still have the same views on Trump that I do now if he was a Democrat. Party lines mean literally nothing to me as far as politicians go. If a Democratic politician did something stupid or out of place and I believe they did, I will call them out on their bullbloop. It just so happens that Trump is a Republican, there's nothing I can do to change that neither can anyone else, and frankly a "If Trump was a Democrat you'd love him" argument feels so much like a last minute resort anyways. If I believe Trump is not fit for president, it's because of his personality and not the party he represents. Besides, both candidates from the 2016 election weren't fit for the presidency, Clinton would have probably just had the "Democratic" version of Trump's presidency. AKA not so good.

And the reason I support the president is because he's the best we had in a while. I don't care if he makes mistakes, and I don't agree with everything he's done, but he's human. He's going to not please everyone. You all may not agree with it, but I have right to support him.
It may seem crazy why I do, but it seems even crazier to me to support some of the Democrats.

You all blast Trump so much for nothing he has done, making me want to support him more. It's getting very old hearing negative about him. Just for once will you guys something positive about him?

(note that the three northern territories of Canada have a combined population of barely over 100K and are very close to uninhabitable in most of the territory, so they'll appear as an exception often, just like Alaska for the United States)

It should be noted that when Trump spoke up on that drug that could possibly (It especially at the time wasn't even known if the drug could do anything) help with fighting COVID-19, called hydroxychloroquine, there was an Arizona couple that believed they had some of their own in their home, literally took some and consumed whatever they thought it was, and one of the people died from it, because as it turned out, it wasn't hydroxychloroquine, but instead fish tank cleaner with a very similar name.

So yes, the President has quite a bit of influence, and anything he says can make someone respond. If someone is seriously dumb enough to down a bottle of aquarium cleaner, then who knows what the bleep idiots will do next.

I heard Trump was trying to help pepole with autism get work.  So that's a positive thing about him.  And it's not him I'm mad about it, it's all the pepole protesting.   protesting and the fact my governor won't limit the amount of pepole allowed in parks.  (narrow not 6 feet apart)  I still don't like hikes that much. 

The Covid-19 pandemic could give us autistic pepole what we've wanted.  Private offices. (since open office plans aren't that conducive to social distancing)

General reminders when it comes to the outbreak:

-Wash your hands regularly and just wash up as much as you can. One of the easiest way to contract the virus is through contact with your hands, and then touching any part of your face (Like your eyes, nose, or mouth).

-If you know anyone who has the virus, do not come into direct contact with them. And if you are diagnosed with the disease yourself, please do whatever you can to STAY AT HOME. Even if you don't have the virus yourself, you should abide by the stay at home laws and only go out if it's for a really important reason.

-Just don't be stupid. Stockpiling isn't something you should be doing. All that does is making sure people who very well need the stuff you're buying in mass don't come out with anything. Don't lick door handles or...toilet seats to prove a point, it's not sane or healthy to do that. Don't be racist either, this virus can and will affect anyone, not just a single group. Likewise, there's no single group, country or even person to blame in this.

Guys, research how the situation is in Brazil, more specifically in the state where I live, Amazonas ... here is a relaxed chaos and worse than a war, bodies are constantly being buried, hospitals are full and without materials, the tests they are not even made, hospitals cannot care for anyone else, people die at home and wait more than 24 hours for the body to be collected, even the coffins are getting scarce .... I don't know what to do ... I'm getting desperate with this situation, I try to stay calm more every day my smile gets sadder ...

I tested positive for this virus slightly over a week ago, and am in the process of recovering (at least I hope so). Here's what I recommend. First, don't worry about being tested, unless you are old or have underlying conditions, otherwise leave testing to people who are at higher risk of severe illness or death. Next make sure you isolate yourself from others to prevent spreading the disease. Since COVID - 19 has no cure, yet, all you can really due to treat the virus is to take medication to treat the symptoms. Bed rest might be needed depending on how severe your symptoms are. If you're concerned call your doctor, and if you have any issues breathing call 911, or in your case 192. If you do have COViD - 19, things will unfortunately get worse, before they get better, and the average recovery time is two weeks.

Brother E: Our sister was informed on her phone from a news app that 53 people died in our city due to the virus. But, our city has no cases and that never happened.
Our pastor met with our mayor and Chief Grady Judd. Someone asked how many cases were in our city. They said no, and that the cases that were reported were in other cities but the news just reported it as ours.
So, we have no cases here but the news said 53 died here. This is why I don't believe the high death rate in America. -_-

Hey guys, this might be strange coming from me but when you’re sanitizing your house, I would recommend starting to use natural cleaners. I am doing research on Lysol for my chemistry class and it’s actually quite toxic. It’d only meant for hard surfaces (DO NOT SPRAY IT IN the AIR), and has to be washed off when it’s used (Which no commercial has ever said). Inhaling it can be very dangerous, and studies have shown it causes asthma, eye irritation, skin irritation, and even central nervous system depression (In other words, it’d like your brain is slower). In worst cases with a lot of exposure, it can cause horrible lung issues like pulmonary edema and cancer. Learning about this from many sources, and specifically looking up the main chemicals in it made me realize how bad the products we are using ti clean are for you. Please be careful and use cleaning products safely. And as I said before, I recommend natural products so you can avoid the toxicity of Lysol, Clorox, bleach, and other products.

This has been a PSA

Sigh...

The coronavirus doesn't mutate NEARLY as fast as the flu.

Remember how vaccines pretty much eradicated diseases such as measles (until dumb Karens had to ruin it)?

It's possible that it can, if in an event where a vaccine/treatment isn't effective enough to eradicate the disease. I believe I saw some article that suggest that COVID-19 may work on a schedule like the flu each year, meaning we'd get it yearly along with the flu, though, since we're so early in working against this new virus, that should be taken with a grain of salt.


Title: Re: COVID-19

I heard there's only a few versions of this virus right now, though it was figured that it can change into about 270 versions. I hope they work on the treatment of the few versions it has now before it gets to 270. :grimace:

As a devil's advocate — why do other people get to decide what I eat? Horses are the most common source of meat where I am from, no issue with that. I would never eat a dog because it's not permissible in my religion, but if Chinese people want to, what is the issue? To most Hindus around the world, the cows we eat are pets, and it is disgusting that we eat them. Different cultures.

The only thing that matters is that the meat we eat is clean, and obtained humanely. Unlike in the wet markets of (south)east Asia, such as the one in Wuhan where the virus originated.

- Cordyceps Brain Infection from The Last of Us is caused by fungi which attacks ants and other insects' brains causing them to become "zombie-slaves". So far it only affects insects... but it might mutate to attack other beings. Everything is possible.
- Green Flu from Left4Dead and Left4Dead 2 is just an extreme version of rabies.

Calm down and actually study the trends.

China has been slowly reopening over the course of the past two months. New hotspots were identified multiple times; all were quickly controlled. Read up on the outbreaks that occurred recently in Heilongjiang, Shaanxi, and Jilin provinces before efficiently being taken care of.

China has not lost control over new cases again.

My dad is a statistician with a PhD and he says there is going to be a second wave. More and more people are dying and you're saying it's fake news? There's no massive conspiracy theory with the government and the coronavirus. There's no "they". It's not fearmongering, it's called informing people about the truth. Have you ever listened to a healthcare worker describe the situation that's going on? It's not getting better. Healthcare workers don't have enough personal protective equipment (PPE) and there aren't enough ventilators.

When a country/state/city re-opens, the amount of cases will boost once again, want it or not. Maybe there won't be as many cases, but there will definitely be more new ones, and this has happened before, in previous pandemics.

Apparently, someone who's recently been in the school I go to tested positive for COVID-19. This is not good because we just had a parade yesterday for the graduating seniors and the seniors got their diplomas afterward. I hope this person wasn't at the parade...

As for mid-June they want to open cinemas, theaters, and indoor gym and indoor pools in Poland...

But for me this is stupid. They should do this in July. I know that the rate of infected people is in the same level but still.

I mean outdoor gyms and outdoor pools are open so why not use them instead? And people can watch films at home.

I think we (At least my state) should be open already for the following reasons:

  • Most of the deaths in my state came from retirement homes
  • This virus has a 0.2% death rate, according to the CDC
  • We are a free country. You should be able to choose if you want to stay home or wear a mask, as you know what’s best for you, at least better than the government
  • Most of the deaths are from people who are over 65 years old

My brother informed me that one of his coworkers tested positive for the virus, and the managers contacted all of the other workers that worked while this person had the virus. Thankfully, my brother wasn't one of them, but he's worried that he may have been in contact with someone that was in contact with the sick person.

I respect your opinion and thought, but I must ask: What if letting people chose to go out causes even more infections to spread in retirement homes? Many loved ones are housed in them (In fact, my great-grandmother is living in a retirement facility right now) and they are all still lives too, lives that are incredibly fragile and most prone to death from this disease. Under these circumstances, it could spread even easier than it already is right now to retirement homes by Someone outside of retirement home > Worker > Resident of the retirement home.

  • So you don't care if people in retirement homes die?
  • 0.2% is a high death rate when you consider how fast the virus spreads. A 0.2% death rate means 1 in 500 people who get sick will die.
  • That doesn't mean we are free to spread a disease which could potentially kill someone. We should all just stay in, and not spread the disease.

You could argue the same about the amount of cases being less than what's been given by the statistics. Some of those deaths could come from other types of viruses/illnesses, not just COVID-19. Terms like possibly, probably, likely, and maybe, aren't objective terms. They don't speak the truth, they define a belief or possibility. The most objective way of looking at the statistics is to check what's been given, not what's possible, probable, or likely. However, those statistics could be made up just to scare the entire world population.

inb4 "lies. i don't believe any of this bullbloop."

Do you believe in those sources? If so, why?

I think we (At least my state) should be open already for the following reasons:

According to society, we aren't a free country. They don't understand the real definition of free, even if they claim to do so.
If we were free about everything, we would be able to do anything we want.

I guess I kinda see what you mean, but by far the main problem right now is that there's no treatment/vaccine for the virus yet. At least, not one that is widely available. Right now is a waiting game, and with that "waiting game" is having to engage in the stay at home orders. Regardless, your dream of all the young people going outside and doing what they want is impossible, as there is no way to trust some random person from not visiting their grandparents or an elderly citizen for example, thus giving them the virus on accident. As well, with so many people under unemployment it's not like every activity center is open for young people to go wild at. This way of handling the virus is plain impossible. I'm sorry, but it's the truth. :/

This is not even mentioning young people can and will die from this virus.

Sure being forced to stay at home all the time sucks, but do you know what sucks even more? You or a loved getting the virus. Losing a close friend and/or family member to COVID - 19. People not staying home, risking spreading the virus to people who are more at risk of death or severe illness. At the time of this post the reported death toll in the US due to COVID - 19 is 104K.

This current death toll in the US is alarming, 1000's of families have lost loved ones due to the virus, and it will only get worse, unless everyone does their part to prevent the spread of the disease. Presently, governors are reopening states, even if their state doesn't have the spread of the virus under control. However, despite states reopening, we can continue to stay at home and prevent the virus from spreading even further, and stop a potential second outbreak. Stay at home, and if you absolutely must go out wear a face mask, and convince others to do the same as well. If you are unwilling to do this to protect the lives of the elderly, at least do it, so that the virus can be controlled more quickly, and people can resume their normal lives quicker.

I’ve noticed that the way that people act about the virus depends on which place they live in, and how bad it is. Ianiant lives in a state where it’s very bad and uncontrolled, so it’s completely understandable that he’s afraid of it.  I live in a state where it never got very bad besides a single isolated county, so it’s reopening fast. I am less afraid of it and have been doing a lot of recreational things lately like going shopping and eating at restaurants. Chances are, ok no lives in a state where it never got that bad and just isn’t seeing the effects of how bad it is. Though that gives absolutely no right to say that the virus is a flu or it’s not that bad, it could explain his attitude towards it. Ok no I really hope that you learn to have more sensitivity towards the situation, people are dying because of this. Even my family, who absolutely hates the lockdown is still being careful not to go near my grandparents whenever we can, and encourage them to wear masks.

Based on what I've seen, the news is not exaggerating. Every day, there are so many new cases in my state to the point where it's getting scary.

2) People literally are trying to shut down someone else's opinions to suit their own agenda as well as trying to indoctrinate others to believe in their opinions because they think it's right, even though it's subjective.
If true, that would be a violation of free speech.

Brother Z: It kinda is real...the news does lie. One time on the news they were talking about a hurricane. They showed a news man in the hurricane talking about it, and the man was almost to fall over. But then, in the background, two people were walking normally. Then the news said that he was in the wet grass and the grass was slippery and he was trying to get traction. Like, really? ::)

Please don't get angry at my post. It's real.

That is a different subject, though. Give me a good example and I will believe you. The news is biased at times and sometimes they do use exaggeration to get more views but not all the time

The word "quarantine" comes from the Italian word "quarantina", meaning " forty days", which refers back to the Black Death in Italy, where people who arrived at the ports on ships had to wait 40 days before being allowed to set foot on the port, so as to make sure the plague couldn't be spread.

I'm afraid that this is not true; it is rather that most countries have not figured out new ways to treat patients, some very innovative ways in fact, and also the hospitals are not swamped anymore so doctors can focus more on individual patients. This and also heat does seem to have a slight effect on weakening the virus. But itself it is not weakening (also the guy they cite, from Italy, is known as a "fake doctor" in Italy, he made headlines before for saying coronavirus in Italy doesn't exist lol)

Allow me to explain some basic biology:

By sheltering in place, we were disallowing the virus to spread. If a virus can't spread, it eventually dies off due to either the immune system disposing of it or the victim dying.

Absolutely correct.

To add on to this, I am tired of the misconception that lockdown was supposed to eliminate the virus. It was supposed to, in layman's terms, prolong the virus and not let it spread exponentially. Countries with successful lockdowns, even if they have many cases such as Russia or South Africa, have now found that their hospitals never reached maximum capacity. They never had to do what doctors in Italy, Spain, or New York did, and force patients to stay in the hallways and die because they ran out of space. THAT is what the lockdown aimed to eliminate.

And now states like Arizona and Texas or countries like Brazil decided "screw it" and their hospitals are about to exceed maximum capacity.

My thoughts on how being religious means you should wear masks and stay at home:

God wants us to look out for others, he definitely wants us to wear masks to protect the elderly. John 13:34 says "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." God loves us more than anything, so we need to protect our elderly, and care for them as God has cared for us. By wearing masks and staying at home, we can stop the spread of the virus and prevent other's deaths.
