Unfortunately I got infected through my roommate who came back from Austria about 1,5 week ago after the town he visited got quarantined due to a Corona outbreak. He and all of his friends he went on

Its getting worse here, despite less cases, today over 630 people dies!   Also my 83yo grandmother is tested positive and is in special hospital for covid patients, I can please for prayers

Sorry if this was posted earlier, I did not check. The perfect sport for the pandemic is fencing. You wear mask and gloves, and if someone comes closer than 1,5 meter to you, you stab them.

I really wish the Chinese government wasn’t so oppressive. There’s so much they actually do right (of course there’s also an insane amount of things they do wrong). I’ve been super impressed with how they’ve handled this outbreak.

I mostly find it curious how something like this gets such huge media attention worldwide, while boatloads of way more dangerous diseases are never even mentioned.

Because China gets more attention in the global media than some forgotten African country like Uganda or Congo nobody cares about? :coffee:

Neither is this, in all reality. But sure, media needs their clicks :p 

 

Well, to be fair, it is something new.


As obnoxious as it may seem, maybe all this media attention is helping limit its spread (just like it seemingly helped with ebola in 2014 and zika in 2016).

That is the reason why at least it is a bit understandable, yes. It's exactly what a Singaporese university professor on these diseases said yesterday: it's not that much more dangerous than the common flu, meaning it's not innocent but definitely not some killing monster. The question is how it'll develop.
