Coronavirus is gaining ground: half the planet is in danger

Color indicates countries where coronavirus is detected

Born in China, the new coronavirus COVID-19 is inexorably spreading across the planet: the number of countries that have detected an infection on its territory is approaching a hundred.

Last night, cases of coronavirus infection were reported in Moldova, Paraguay, Bulgaria and Malta, and in countries where the disease has reached earlier, the number of infected continues to grow.

The figures given by the medical departments of various countries cannot but impress.

According to the State Committee on Hygiene and Health Care of the People's Republic of China, 80,7 thousand people fell ill from the outbreak of the epidemic, of which 3097 died.

In Europe, Italy leads in the number of cases, with 5833 infected and 233 fatalities detected. In France, the number of infected almost reached a thousand, and 11 people died.

The processes of globalization, which are actively going on all over the world, have led to the fact that distances no longer play the role of a barrier in the spread of infections: the new coronavirus reached Africa as soon as possible and affected both Americas - North and South.

Currently, all countries of the world are taking measures to limit the spread of infection, but experts refrain from making any forecasts.

    Well, everything, it started over the bumps, after the New Year, the whole world suffered from diarrhea, and nothing, no pandemic, it's just a seasonal illness, but here it's just hysterical .... This is another flu with some additives, mutations, and we again - " everything is lost". Last year, 70 thousand people died from simple flu in China, and now only 3 thousand, and someone is winding this corona on our ears ... Everything, boys and girls, will be fine!

      1. There is a vaccination against influenza, which allows in the vast majority of cases to transfer the disease without complications. There is no such vaccine from COVID-19.
      2. COVID-19 is 2-2,5 times in advance than normal flu.
      3. The incubation period for influenza is on average about 3 days, for COVID-19 - 10-14 days. This means that it will not be possible to immediately identify and isolate the infected.
      4. Well and the last - mortality. From COVID-19, it is three times higher than that of seasonal flu. This is WHO data.

        Why are you here la-la about all this coronavirus bullshit, did you forget how much hysteria there was in the world because of chicken and swine flu, and how all kinds of corporations profited from all kinds of Teraflu there, and they told us a few months after each that we all will crow or grunt without exception, and where is all this ..... I clearly wrote in my comment that in the homeland of the Chinese coronavirus last year 70 thousand people died of simple flu, and this was only 3 thousand , so think about it ... to your nose, otherwise you are already sick of it with all sorts of sores. Look, there is an epidemic of poverty in the country, and no one can see and do not need anything.

    Obviously, Italians have "national" characteristics that make this country a hotbed of a deadly infection throughout the planet.

    Flu shot. Sounds great. Just how many strains of this flu? And how many are vaccinated? And how, interestingly, did they calculate the degree of infectivity? I'm not kidding, just interesting. Did they take into account the sanitary and hygienic conditions of the people? In general, according to statistics, this sore is more swollen than dangerous. From TBC, flu, common pneumonia they die more and more often, and separately. IHMO.
