If we can slow the virus down, it could save hundreds of thousands of lives.

In March 2020, the World Health Organization officially classified Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, as a pandemic. That means the disease no longer constitutes just an outbreak or even an epidemic; the coronavirus has now spread around the world, and will continue to reach into other countries and communities.
That’s in part because of how contagious the virus is. When you’re infected with the flu, it takes about two days before you start to show symptoms. But coronavirus symptoms take an average of five to six days to appear, so it’s easy to spread well before you notice that you’re feeling sick. Many people are spreading it while going about their daily lives as usual.
The risk is that once coronavirus starts to spread in a community, about 20% of cases are severe and may require hospitalization. As those cases multiply, hospitals can fill up quickly. And people with severe cases of COVID-19 who can’t receive proper medical attention are at a much higher risk of dying.
Ideally, we would be able to stop the virus from spreading entirely. We can’t do that right now. What we can do is slow it down, so that the severe cases get spread out over a longer period of time, and hospitals are less likely to be overwhelmed on any given day. And that’s where each one of us comes in. The best way to slow down the spread is for everyone - healthy, sick, young, old - to limit social contact as much as possible, immediately. This is called social distancing, and it only works if enough of us do it. But if we do, it could mean the difference between the life and death of someone you know.

It should also be discussed why our bed limit is so low. Because we are more concerned with spending money on war and less about helping people. And now we have to destroy the economy because we don't have enough beds so we should spread out the infection. Only multinationals survive months closure.

Everyone be sure to wear masks and gloves when you go shopping. Shopping carts and public doors will carry the virus. As viruses can live on surfaces like plastic and steel for 3-5 days, airborne 3 hours, on copper 4 hours. Use hand sanitizer and soap afterwards.

I wonder why it went up in St Louis @5:58 then down? What changed? It had to be more than just the weather because if you look at Philly, their numbers were extremely low during the time it spiked in St Louis. Why? Just a question to all my med nerds and history experts. Thanks for sharing.

All governments including China, US and Australia failed to respond to
Coronavirus epidemic adequately.
We knew four types of Coronaviruses causing common cold in people for
many years. We didn’t learn from SARS Coronavirus in 2002 to 2003 epidemic that
killed about 800 out of 8000 infected people. Again in 2012, MERS Coronavirus
which killed over 900 of about 2500 cases appeared to be more deadly. Finally,
the lack of cooperation between governments in 2019 resulted in a much greater
disaster where the whole world experienced loss of health and life and a huge
loss of jobs and money. So far 26000 death in about 550,000 cases worldwide.
When will these governments start working together to fund a war against Coronavirus
for the benefit of people instead of spending people’s money for political wars?

The hospital in the picture is unrealistic. The reality is that hospitals are already pretty full, even up to 98% during normal routine years in places like Italy. Your average hospital is probably 85% full or more at any normal moment.
