    COVID-19 can't be contained. It'll just become another winter virus that you'll have to get a shot for. So in the future you'll need to get your annual flu and COVID-19 shots.

    COVID-19 can't be stopped for the simple reason that it's just like the common cold virus. In fact, the common cold virus is a coronavirus. This is especially exemplified by the fact that it's very clear now that COVID-19 has very little impact on children; just like the common cold. Thus no amount of quarantining can contain it.

    Since the COVID-19 virus, like influenza, poses the greatest risk to older person with existing medical conditions, the COVID-19 and flu shots will almost certainly be rolled into a single shot.

    China has, so far, been KIND OF successful in corralling COVID-19 but the virus will come roaring back to China sooner or later. The only thing that can be done is to try to do like China and corral it till late Spring (at least in the northern hemisphere) when the weather will bring it to a halt. And then come next November a vaccine should be available to administer to the elderly who are the most vulnerable due to existing medical and health conditions.

    The Government has announced measures that all workplaces with 10 employees or more are to have paid mandatory leave to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus starting from March 6, 2020.

    All schools are to close for 2 weeks also from March 6th

    Offices will resume after 2 weeks of the mandatory closure.

    A list of all schools and businesses in your area is shown on the list.

    To be fair, it's mostly killing only the very elderly people who are bankrupting our Healthcare system by grinding out a few extra years of life at enormous costs. So it may be a blessing in disguise (that is, if you don't want the country's Healthcare to fail)

  • Reply MrChowhua March 5, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Those people being forced to stay on a infected ship are all going to get infected. 900 hundred years ago during the black death, even people back then knew not to be around infected people.

  • Reply TheRange March 5, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    WASH YOUR HANDS for 20 secs. Use ALCOHOLIC hand rub. Don't go out if you feel sick. Don't shake hands. Avoid crowded situations. I would say wear a well-fitting face mask and eye-wear/goggles/face shield. Zimple!

    I dont see government taking any action even so many ppl infected and die.

  • Reply S Soutache March 5, 2020 at 10:46 pm

    If they force the uninfected to remain on board, they are going to get infected due to re-circulated air. Just like on the Diamond Princess. They need to find a better way / place to quarantine so they don't doom others.

    Saving people should be more important than saving the economy. We need to announce this pandemic and practice wearing mask and social distancing. This would buy us additional time to develop new treatment drug and vaccine. Pray this RNA virus will not mutate too much rendering the vaccine noneffective.

    Compare to SARS, COVID-19 is 20 times more contagious and has higher affinity to the ACE2 receptors of human cell. Unlike flu and SARS, a COVID-19 carrier can spread without any symptoms for up to 27 days. Those who recovered might suffer various organ damages. Many people in Wuhan died at home when the medical system was/is overwhelmed. China had never been crippled like this before by the flu and SARS. COVID-19 is no SARS!

    Various renown epidemiologists had already predicted up to 40 to 70% of world population will be infected as it follows an exponential equation. It’s time to accept Jesus and ask the Lord for forgiveness and mercy. We all are in His hands now.

    Wipe and disinfect everything you bring into your home. Don't forget to switch your shoes and give the bottoms a good spray. When you're done and it's going to take time to do it right, let everything dry and go back and spray your car door handle and steering wheel and any other surfaces you may have touched. Give your keys a wash.
    Good luck to us all.

    San Francisco and the whole Silicon Valley are the strategic area of the United
    States. The Grand Princess ship docking in San Francisco Bay last night might have
    been contaminated with Covid-19 in its central air system and infect people on
    the ship. There are many dots to connect the contamination path. The ship
    belongs to the same Grand Princess company that had another Grand Princess
    cruise ship docking In Japan with Covid-19 infection. One person from the ship
    has passed away in the previous trip from Mexico to SF, but the ship continued
    to operate and take on more people who then mixed with the passengers and the
    cruise members on the previous trip with potential of having being infected
    with Covid-19; and now the ship brought back another 2000 people with high
    potential for being infected with Covid-19 from the same cruise members as well
    as from the ship's central air system and the contaminated environment on the

    Covid-19 can stay deep in the lower respiratory tract. The virus takes time to multiply and show up in
    the saliva and phlegm. The rapid test from throat swab or nose swab samples can
    have a risk of not being sensitive enough to pick up a very small number of the
    virus, given the test is new and haven't have enough data to validate the
    sensitivity and accuracy level of the test. Let's say, for example, the test
    has 10% false negative because of sensitivity and accuracy, meaning that 10% of
    people who have infections but the test shows negative. Chinese tests have
    higher levels of false negative. Chinese research papers stated that many
    people had the symptoms; however, the tests showed negative results while chest
    CT scan already showed infection patches in the lungs.

    Will the government be willing to take the high risk of creating infection crisis in the Silicon
    Valley later if allowing 2000 people on the ship to disembark in San Francisco
    Bay? The Australian government has allowed travelers with potential for
    infection to stay on isolated islands but not in the main land. Should we let
    the ship dock in an uncrowded, economically non-strategic place?

  • Reply A I March 5, 2020 at 11:57 pm

    We need to identify the countries which cause the spread of new virus and ensure that they take adequate steps to stop future spread. Many countries feed on almost anything and everything and bring the virus from those animals or insects to humans. The animals and insects have their immunity adjusted over a long period of time but as humans consume them their population gets a severe jolt. The spread time and again is mainly from a few countries but all other countries have to bear the repercussions. In future any country not adhering to strict standards of prevention of such spread should be severely dealt with. One fine day we suddenly find that we have suddenly reached a stage similar to polio or plague and that too without any medicines. The world doesn't want to come to this hopeless state again and again.
