Why fighting the coronavirus depends on you

    If we can slow the virus down, it could save hundreds of thousands of lives.
    Read more about the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic at vox.com/coronavirus
    In March 2020, the World Health Organization officially classified Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, as a pandemic. That means the disease no longer constitutes just an outbreak or even an epidemic; the coronavirus has now spread around the world, and will continue to reach into other countries and communities.
    That’s in part because of how contagious the virus is. When you’re infected with the flu, it takes about two days before you start to show symptoms. But coronavirus symptoms take an average of five to six days to appear, so it’s easy to spread well before you notice that you’re feeling sick. Many people are spreading it while going about their daily lives as usual.
    The risk is that once coronavirus starts to spread in a community, about 20% of cases are severe and may require hospitalization. As those cases multiply, hospitals can fill up quickly. And people with severe cases of COVID-19 who can’t receive proper medical attention are at a much higher risk of dying.
    Ideally, we would be able to stop the virus from spreading entirely. We can’t do that right now. What we can do is slow it down, so that the severe cases get spread out over a longer period of time, and hospitals are less likely to be overwhelmed on any given day. And that’s where each one of us comes in. The best way to slow down the spread is for everyone - healthy, sick, young, old - to limit social contact as much as possible, immediately. This is called social distancing, and it only works if enough of us do it. But if we do, it could mean the difference between the life and death of someone you know.

All governments including China, US and Australia failed to respond to Coronavirus epidemic adequately. We knew four types of Coronaviruses causing common cold in people for many years. We didn’t learn from SARS Coronavirus in 2002 to 2003 epidemic that killed about 800 out of 8000 infected people. Again in 2012, MERS Coronavirus which killed over 900 of about 2500 cases appeared to be more deadly. Finally, the lack of cooperation between governments in 2019 resulted in a much greater disaster where the whole world experienced loss of health and life and a huge loss of jobs and money. So far 26000 death in about 550,000 cases worldwide. When will these governments start working together to fund a war against Coronavirus for the benefit of people instead of spending people’s money for political wars?

The hospital in the picture is unrealistic. The reality is that hospitals are already pretty full, even up to 98% during normal routine years in places like Italy. Your average hospital is probably 85% full or more at any normal moment.

I never knew social distancing meant being slapped by police because I went out to buy food. I never knew lockdown meant full power for police to govern how and where I move even if I'm a healthy 20yr old who hates human contact anyway.. the gov and media outlets are confused withing themselves.

Wow! I really love that mindset “In order to stop the virus you and everyone else needs to behave like they already have it” it makes the whole concept of “social distancing” understandable. This type of mind set needs to be spread around. Hope news outlets start to express the importance of isolation this way. I totally get it now. Thanks! ...guess I’ll be skipping kicking it with my bf tomorrow...oh well. Its for the best!👍
