The Covid-19 Virus

Global Pandemic Covid-19

The Covid-19 Virus emerged according to many in late November in Wuhan, Hubei Province China, at a local Wet Market. The Virus jumped species and is in the same category as Viruses such as MERS and SARS. Since then it has become a Global Pandemic the likes of which have not been seen since the 1918 Spanish Flu. Months later there is hardly a nation on this planet not affected by the Virus, and no nation not affected by the economic damage of falling Global Markets, rising unemployment, and complete disruption of trade. Thousands of people have lost their lives and many more are recovering from an infection which on paper appears to have a fatality rate of anywhere between 1–3% but still is not fully accurate as many cases are mild enough to go unnoticed. The infection is far more contagious than earlier believed, and avoidance of getting sick is the best-case scenario for all people. There were earlier advisories that wearing masks was not necessary for the general public; they have been revised in part in many countries.
There is a great deal of information that still is unfolding, and this space is about bringing information forward which may not be easily found. The information will be as credible as possible, and if theoretical discussed as such. So far there is no medical cure other than to allow a patient’s immune system to clear the Virus. Prevention cannot be stressed enough in this Pandemic. Please bring your personal experiences here so we can try to bring as much comfort to the globe as possible during this period.
