    In Italy the situation about asian racism is almost out of control: with just 2 cases, people are going crazy! I read on newspapers that many shops run by asian are closing because no one wants to buy from them. The mayor of Milan had to start an initiative to help people who live and work in the most famous "chinatown" of Milan. I even read that some people wanted to throw rocks to whom just came back from Whuan these last days. There's a lot of misinformation because many don't trust what doctors says (a friend of mine was afraid to catch the virus just from a dress she bought from aliexpress)

  • Reply Blazed homosapien February 6, 2020 at 11:20 am

    I got really scared two days ago since I got a cold and a sore throat. When my grandma found out she told me to keep drinking cold medicine and I guess it did it job and Im fine.

    Its quite disheartening that due to the virus xenophobia is starting to rise up. I guess some people stay away for themselves to feel safe, but there are just some who use the virus as a ploy for them to make fun of you. The virus became much scarier not because its dangerous but because of how much the people reacted to it. I wonder if the relationship between races/countries will be the same again…

    Fun fact – Doctors wearing ties can actually pass on more illnesses to patients as ties rarely ever get washed. Some doctors are adopting a "bow tie or no tie" policy to combat the issue.

    Perhaps doing away with some of the additional accessories when dating with patients can help with the spread of infections….even in the office setting?

    Yeah, it'd be great to have people in Bus/Sub, constantly sneezing, wear these masks. We got some at home because we had to take some precautions for our son, since he was a preemi. The box is about 3 years old now and I dunno if they're of any use anymore since the paper is really thin and maybe brittle by now, didn't check.

    It's a bit sad that many people don't get why SICK people in heaviely populated areas wear these, its common sense, its smart and nice of the wearer. In germany you only get weird looks, but the seats next to you are always open for other smart individuals ;D

    Unpopular opinion, but I'm gonna say it anyway… Fact: the flu vaccine is only a suggested, not mandatory, vaccine because it has an unstable record of actually working properly due to the volatile nature of the influenza virus, to the point that it shouldn't even be referred to as a "vaccine" since it only has limited preventative usages, especially when compared to the immunity success of other vaccines like Tdap, MMR, etc.

    Look up the numbers… Over most single-decade gaps, even in controlled environments, the efficiency of the flu vaccine ranges anywhere from 5 to 90% and changes drastically each year… That's a huge margin of error for a vaccine you need to get annually (and is the only general-public vaccine recommended annually, as most others only require a single vaccine or boosters after several years, like for tetanus).

    tl;dr the flu shot is only really beneficial if you frequently work with lowered immunity or immuno-compromised people or are one yourself. If you are a healthy adult working around/interacting with mostly other healthy adults it's not a necessity…
