The coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is no longer making headlines but should be because the situation remains severe. Considering the huge number of people in critical condition, expect deaths to climb rapidly over the next week.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: SITUATION WORSENS:
Can you imagine being on that quarantined passenger ship wherein 10 passengers were found infected… and then to be told two days later that the infections have increased to 20. It’s now 41 but rumoured to be 60. One passenger whose been diagnosed posted a video online saying that he feels fine, hopes he’s only a carrier, but is concerned that no one has checked his health status in 4 days! I expect someone’s already writing the script for the movie version.
If you enjoy a thrill with a taste of education, watch the 2011 movie ‘Contagion’. Surprisingly, for Hollywood, it contained truth nuggets. I’ll put the trailer at the bottom of this page.
Next time you’re in a mall, notice how many times people touch their faces, escalator railings etc. It’ll make your skin crawl.
“Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. Symptoms can include:
Shortness of breath
CDC believes at this time that symptoms of 2019-nCoV may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 after exposure.”
