    Some simply advice worth repeating: WASH YOUR HANDS and DON'T PANIC
    People always say "sing happy birthday twice" before you stop scrubbing with soap, but what are some other songs around that length you would sing?

    I really enjoyed this. Very education, non-sensationalist, and presented in an easily digestible manner and pace. As a new viewer, I was slightly jarred when the host suddenly changed, though. Maybe a shot with both of you in the scene prior would've lessened this? Looking forward to your next video!

    The WHO WILL NOT declare this virus a "pandemic" (although it IS a pandemic), because the pandemic bonds holders would lose billions of dollars. They are purposefully waiting until after the May, 2020 deadline before doing so. It is all about MONEY, not saving lives or stopping the pandemic.

    It's just kinda strange… I have ablutomania, means the compulsion to wash my hands. I carry around this disorder along with my depression for years and years. I am not all about germs actually, but just the thought of someone scratching his balls and then touching anything in the train, wich I then touch disgusts me. So I am always just touching things with my sleeve in public places, use purell when I uncomfortable and wasch my hands very often during the day. It's so strange to see all people behave the same way at the moment, making a behavior I was always kinda embarrassed about, somewhat normal atm. I am actually not in the least concerned about the virus, although I am working at the hospital grounds that carried one of the first Corona patients in Germany. It's just interesting how the fear can make people behave just like a "mentally sick" person like me. So I have empathy for everyone being afraid. Sometimes fear doesn't add up with the logic facts give us. Sadly.

  • Reply 8trigrammer March 6, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    The governments and media are pushing this "pandemic" angle to cause fear, so that THEY can offer you the solution, which gains them more power and control, which is what they're always after… The truth is that the CV is just another type of flu. It's not anymore lethal than the common cold, which statistically has killed more people. The real danger might be getting blasted by 5G towers, which some research has shown to cause respiratory issues and lack of oxygen uptake, look it up.
    This doesn't mean you shouldn't prepare for the worst, but please, for fuck's sake, start being skeptical about what you see on the "news"! Do your independent research!

But they don't die they simply are hosts.The 2014 ebola outbreak was caused in a rise in African people eating bats. Listen up world,

    Me and my friend have been wanting to go to Korea for a couple of years and we’ve finally saved enough and said that this year would be our year. And then coronavirus happened. We were gonna go in mid to late June. Do you think this is a good idea? Because we were both really excited about going but now I am stressing about things like: what if we go and get quarantined? What if one of us has a slight fever on the day we come home and they don’t let us leave? What if one of us actually gets coronavirus?
    I thought I’d comment in hopes that someone will see it. Just thought I’d ask and see people’s thoughts.

    I think now is the perfect time for something like this to happen. Controversial topics are being brought up often and many people are asking for a change. For example, the climate/environmental crisis. The world needs a change and hopefully this virus will make traditional people realize that a slightly different routine isn’t bad.

    I commend you on this video. Well done and easy to understand. However, there is another pandemic which you could help to curb: the use of the world "actually". I counted 8 instances of the use of this word in this video – none of which were necessary. Five of these were in the first 3 minutes. It is distracting. In addition, by inserting "actually" into a sentence, you are claiming that what you are saying is true, but at the same time – whether you intend to or not – you cast doubt on all of the information in sentences that do not contain the word. "Actually" seems to be a verbal tic among many, and its use is spreading like wildfire. Your point could be made with more clarity without it.
