| Health / Re: 5 Reasons Coronavirus Is Way Worse Than You’ve Been Led To Believe by WILLIAMEZEH: 3:14pm On Feb 13, 2020 |
Organizations like WHO have done their best to downplay the impact of coronavirus, but there's reason to believe the epidemic is getting worse.
The conflicting information coming out about coronavirus speaks volumes about how dangerous the novel disease could be.
There’s ample reason to believe the situation is likely much worse than anyone thinks.
Here are five convincing reasons to believe so.
The coronavirus is a whisker away from becoming a pandemic for the World Health Organization (WHO).
In truth, it’s already a worldwide threat
By the time the WHO begins to digest what is going on, things could get much worse.
The press and the authorities have been giving conflicting information, and these five reasons are convincing enough to believe the situation is much worse than we think.
1. Africa Could Already Be Under The Grips Of Coronavirus
There are constant updates about coronavirus cases globally – everywhere except Africa. This is the continent that still battles with mass poverty, malnourishment, civil wars, authoritarian governments, terrorism and diseases.
Most assume it is something about the African weather that has kept coronavirus at bay. But the reality could be entirely different. The virus could already be spreading in Africa, and we might not know how far it has gone till it’s too late. The continent received its first testing kits Feb. 7.

While other countries have been shutting down air travel to and from China, Africa is still taking in travelers. Fifteen hundred people a day still fly into Ethiopia from China.
The carelessness of government officials and the lack of resources could mean that coronavirus can spread rapidly in Africa.
2. Japanese Cruise Ship Showcases How Infectious Coronavirus Is
The ‘Diamond Princess’ ship set sail from China, dropped off an infected person in Hong-Kong, then arrived in Japan before it was quarantined. With 3,600 people aboard, the Japanese authorities saw fit to not let anyone get off.
It turns out they were correct. Out of the 300 people who have been tested, 136 have tested positive for the coronavirus. The high rate of infection encapsulates how quickly the disease can spread.
The closed space and densely-crowded ship served as a perfect environment for mass cross-infection. With conditions similar to what they are in South Asia, the cruise ship is a perfect replica of what has happened in China.
It’s also an indication of what could happen in population-dense countries like India that have worse conditions.
3. China’s Pride Could Sink The World
The dark sides of a one-party rule are well known. The Chinese government has been suppressing information to save face and not appear weak. But it comes at a cost.
To contain a pandemic in its early stages, it’s essential to know the true extent of the crisis. Unfortunately, China has likely been lying about the severity of the situation from the word go.
China lying about coronavirus
The Chinese government is blatantly lying about the numbers now.
Taking into consideration the amount of contrary information that’s coming out, one cannot help but think China is facing a crisis and trying to downplay it.
When the truth eventually surfaces, it might be too late for the world to react.
4. Authorities Saying ‘There’s No Reason To Panic’ Is A Reason To Panic
History has taught us that the people at the top always downplay a crisis – even when they know it is deadly and could kill millions.
Spanish Flu parallels to coronavirus

As evidenced from the image above, officials and media downplayed the Spanish Flu in the early 20th century. A type of coronavirus itself, the Spanish Flu eventually wiped out 3.5% of the world’s population.
It’s understandable why organizations such as WHO would downplay a crisis, though. It’s in their self-interest. If hundreds of millions of people start panicking and preparing for an emergency, the world would cease to function.
That being said, history tells us the downplaying is still a cause for concern.
5. Coronavirus Is Airborne
A Chinese official finally recently confirmed a devastating fact about coronavirus: It is airborne.
Not only does it spread from direct contact and droplets from coughs and sneezes, but it can also bind with oxygen and travel much farther than thought before. Zeng Qun, Deputy Head of the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau, confirmed it in a press briefing.
Aerosol transmission refers to the mixing of the virus with droplets in the air to form aerosols, which causes infection after inhalation, according to medical experts. As such, we have called on the public to raise their awareness of the prevention and control of the disease caused by family gatherings.
This devastating revelation alone indicates the disease could ripple across vast distances in no time. It’s no surprise that there are scores of videos Chinese officials disinfecting the streets and buildings.
The evidence clearly suggests the disease is more dangerous than what the officials want everyone to believe.
this virus is resident evil

I have this ex girlfriend.
She still believes I deflowered her, even though I just agreed to keep the topic off the table, I know she is a big liar.
Before we did it for the 1st time, she told me she never did and also told me she has had an abortion! You are confused right? I am correct.
What she still claims is that the guy who was before me, whose bady she deleted, never fully penetrated but on the trial process, ejaculated on (not in) privates. Effectively, she got pregnant without actual intercourse.
I then came later, the rope is still on my neck that I did it first.
Please am in the office don't do this to me again

That is not good idea, two American citizens having their child outside US, their child is supposed to be qualified automatically as US citizen if all evidence shows that they are the real owner of the child.
For foreigners giving birth in US, their child should wait till 18 years to qualify, that is the standard in EU.
Nigeria own is the most difficult one and need to amended since you cannot be a Nigerian unless if your parents or grandparents is a Nigeria

Olamide always does something immoral to bring attention to his newly released track. This is his way of publicity. It's a no brainer but fetches him money in the long run.
Our Society has degraded to letting immorality sell so Olamide is just taking advantage of that to earn a living, He always sings about the latest sin in town.... That's his selling point. Even lil Kesh didn't understand this about Olamide that's why his career went down the drain when he left YBNL to start his own record label.
One last fact you all don't know is he will always sell using that strategy, Why? 90% of human are naturally dumb because evolution doesn't support intelligence. More dumb people reproduce more that intelligent people in the society.
