    COVID-19 = Disease caused by the novel coronavirus (named by WHO)
    SARS-CoV-2 = Actual NEW name for the virus (named by ICTV)
    Apologies for the confusion and misspeak on my part!

    Thank you very much for this updated information, and all information you’ve presented in the past. It is too easy to believe that COVID-19 is something just out of the blue, completely unknown and threatening to us – especially with the fear mongering coming from US media. It’s the kind of information you’re bringing forwards that reminds us we’ve dealt with other viruses in the past and so we can deal with this one too. This prospect is even greater when one takes into consideration that all of the world is helping find halting or preventative measures.

    Thanks again! Keep up the good work!

    I wonder how long until this guy finally admits that comparing flu and covid 19 is superhumanly stupid because of the crucial differences between the two viruses, like maybe the fact that flu has already basically spread everywhere and covid 19 hasn't been contained is a worse disease objectively speaking

  • Reply Maverick February 22, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Also the updated numbers are not worth paying attention to for a lot of reasons, like a great example is the several other times where the definition of infection was changed but it actually made the numbers look way more mild than they actually were because China is still covering up entire sections with their controlled information state

  • Reply smileandlaughs February 22, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    It's sickening how this person claiming to be a doctor relied heavily on the WHO for lousy information. Anyone that pay attention to current events will notice how the WHO like to praise China as Chinese doctors are being silenced. The reality is the Chinese lied about the numbers so it wouldn't effect their economy. If anyone that is confident that this is no big deal they should take a vacation trip to China because airfare and travel are really cheap right now.

    It’s not the flu… it’s 81% mild cases but just look what is happening . My eyes are telling me China started the most outrageous quarantine in history which has not worked . Hospitals staffs workers anyone near near anyone with this virus has to be in total hazmat gear just to interact with them . But it’s not the flu. I personally hope the warm season kills it or ends it’s spread otherwise I’m just gonna hope for the best .

    35 cases in the United States now confirmed, and with a reported incubation period of now 25 days, it is likely that there are several unreported cases. 10 towns in Italy on lockdown. We saw what happened in China. Let's hope it doesn't happen in the United States, or anywhere else for that matter. China's economy is compromised. Further global economic disturbances would be extremely damaging to the world economy… I'm not anxious, I'm alert…

We consulted a doctor and he said we can cure this but the dose of medicine can cause heart failure due to her weak heart condition. We are not sure what to do. Can you 1) Confirm the side effect?
    2) Is there any other cure which doesn't have side effects?

    Dear people who are afraid of this virus, please don't be. I have been in China since September and I am fine (coworkers who have been here 10+ years). We have a treatment that was used on Malaria and has shown promising results towards this virus according to my companies CEO (who translated the article for us). Today we only got 399 more confirmed cases when it used to be 2,000+ per day. The downside is I can only leave my apartment complex once every three days and we have to wear a mask, which doesn't help at all and makes me die of heat. Today marks the 20th day I have been stuck in my apartment. If anyone has recommendations on games or movies that would be great!

    Please stop Xenophobia if you see it. We are in the 21st century and no human deserves this.

    Im sorry but Dr. Mike, you obviously are not familiar with how China is hiding the truth about how many are REALLY infected in not just Wuhan, but all of China. Not sure if you also know that the director of WHO is obviously getting money from China for him to say things like "China did a great job containing the virus" which is an absolute joke. I, as a dental school graduate from Taiwan can tell you that we are almost 100% certain that China is hiding many truths about this outbreak and is still trying to politically look good globally.

    Doctor Mike – The FBI just spent $40,000 on hand sanitizer and face masks, LOL! That seems like stocking up for a global pandemic! : ) I have an MPH so not paranoid – the CDC is releasing very little meaningful, informative updates. Some online reports (credible source, not newspapers or buzzfeed) from other countries provide better updates on the situation in the US. I agree there is no need to panic. The actual # of deaths can be frightening if it is the only data considered. The # of deaths compared to the # of cases/survivors show the mortality rate is very low.

  • Reply Jonian February 22, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    The best cure is an 10,000 mg a day of Vitamin C taken in even doses throughout the day ( example doses of 200 every 15 min for 12 hours) this is to allow the body to absorbe it and not flush it out. Just try it, vitamin C is water soluble (meaning any excess is taken out of the body with urine) and it has no harmful effects on the organism and it's a very very cheap solution. If dr. Mike can bring any examples of vit. C side/harmful effects please let us know. There are clinical trials that show huge doses of vit. C work on those viruses. Stay safe ppl.

    I’ve just lost my respect in this channel. I understand you are a physician and not an historian but China is notorious for controlling information and downplaying their disasters.

    People within China have passed the information that this disease was known about in China and its dangers well before it became known outside the country. Schools were closed on November 23 due to this virus and not reopened as far away as Suzhou.

    Those people who were able to get information out are no longer communicating. This concerns me deeply as one of them is a dear friend.

    Panic won’t help, it’s true. But neither will naïveté and disregard for what history has proved time and again.
