Okay, just want to let this major fact fall out of the bag. The flu my friends is still a larger threat than the Coronavirus. As for recent updates it’s been said that in The United States around 14 people have died because of complications associated with the virus, but still this does not pose a life or death threat on most of the population in America. Now, as for Europe and places like Iran these are totally different circumstances. When it comes to the way crisis is handled, and medical expertise the comparison between the U.S and outside of it is apples and oranges.
A lot of cities that have been more so affected by these outbreaks in the U.S. have taken the smart initiative to be more cautious when it comes to prevention. There is a key difference between making moves to stop something from getting worse, versus having the cat already out of the bag and trying to find ways to contain it. Right now, and surely it seems unreasonable to remain calm when all over social media the consensus is we are all going to die if someone ends up sneezing on us, but the best advice at the moment is to remain tranquil and aware.
Interestingly enough in a turn of events that has arised Donald Trump has decided to sign an emergency fund bill in the amount of 8.3 billion dollars to take on what’s been happening with Coronavirus. This is a distinguishing switch from where the President was not too long ago, convinced Coronavirus was nothing more than a “hoax”, and something we shouldn’t be too worried about. This type of outbreak is not something he could have predicted right as he started campaigning for reelection, but it will be something he will be pushed on.
How Coronavirus will play out is a day by day thing. People thought of it initially like this generation’s Ebola, or Swine Flu but it looks as if it’s been more aggressive in the way it spreads by human to human contact. If it does indeed get worse the world will be a lot quieter. Grand festivities like “Coachella” and intense raves won’t be put into motion, and we will all become shut ins. For a lot of people this is already their lives so nothing that life changing is going on.
With great thanks to the Doctors putting their lives on the line daily, along with the nurses people need to realize that assessing situations for what they are, instead of promoting mass panic is a better route. Imagine if during the cuban missile crisis John F. Kennedy was over in a corner crying. Honestly, after the fact he might have been, but from what historians have told us he had a focus unlike no other, and found strategic ways to combat a possible catastrophe. Learn from the past guys it is a great guide.
