Coronavirus is a gigantic problem for the world. Please take care of yourself people.

9 posts in this topic

I don't post stuff like this because these kinds of things usually are not that important, but this time of year in this situation? It is an entirely different story. 

 

Coronavirus has been a gigantic problem right now. Ever since this flu-like virus started in China, the rest of the world has been affected. This is seriously like that board game Pandemic where the world is facing a crisis because of a deadly disease that's slowly spreading to the world. Because of this disease, Italy is in full lockdown, Germany prepares for the worst case scenario, USA has gotten so bad that events like WWE, E3, and even the NBA are affected. I watched the last match of Denver Nuggets vs Dallas Mavericks, and that game went from fun to absolutely depressing as hell because out of nowhere the show was told to shut future matches down after that. I am scared for my family back in Indonesia because that place is a sickzone right now, and here in Australia people are already affected by the thing that my church choir had to be cancelled because the church is closing till 31 March, and even Tom Hanks got affected by it in Goldcoast. It's a complete mess.

 

I am here to tell you guys to stay as healthy as possible. I don't want you people to get affected by this terrible disease, and in times like this, the last thing you want is to get hit by this thing & had to stay in the hospital for God knows how many days & unable to enjoy playing games or watch your favorite movies or whatever you guys do on your spare time. Here's a pointer about this disease & how to protect yourself.

Pre-emptive measure is very important. Stockpile your house with supplies, because it is highly likely that things will be so bad that you can't even go out of your house.

Take care of yourself guys, and may we get through this tough time with good health until it's over.

Short and sweet, part of me thinks everyone is overreacting, but part says you can't be too careful. Which part is stronger depends on if I'm listening to the news or just talking with friends.

All I can really say is don't panic, be smart, be healthy...preferably in that order.

I say that you should be careful and adopt safety precautions. Not forself but for your family. I know there is not much corono do to the young blood but still you have to pace that 15 days period and for importantly i amy cause a huge life threat to your parents and other older citizens in your family. So keep your self safe and must saty at home.

Ok, a couple of weeks later...I still don't know what's going on. Not going to downplay how contagious it is, but after reading multiple news sources it seems nobody can agree on how deadly it actually is. Might be gouache, but I honestly believe the media has inflated this thing way beyond what it really is and a lot of politicians have just lept at the chance to shut things down. But that's all I'm going to say because I couldn't really get into it further without breaking the forum rules about discussing politics. Hope everyone has been staying safe regardless.

Yeah, it's a shitshow that never in my life would I expect ever experiencing something like this. This thing varies upon people, but it's definitely not a common flu. People who had existing conditions or are old are going to get the worst effect, and the normal people will have to struggle with the disease, even confined in a hospital for a long time until they're fine again. I feel bad for you guys in USA because right now your country is the most affected. 1 million people, while second place goes to Spain with only around 217,000 people. Us in Australia had 6,800 people affected & the people here are thankfully very cooperative, except for some assholes. I'm worried for my family back in Indonesia though because it's very likely that there's even more people that got this thing than what's officially claimed right now, but they're thankfully keeping themselves safe & clean. The best countries can do now is just social distancing & keeping themselves healthy + clean, and that is for the best.

 

Stay safe & healthy man.

In my opinion, the pandemic is greatly exaggerated.

Starting to feel that way. There is definitely cause for concern in certain environments and situations, but the "shut-down everything!" mentality that seems popular in the media doesn't match what I'm seeing in my day-to-day. I admit that might just be in my particular area, but I'm starting to hear individual accounts from the so-called "epicenters" that things aren't that bad.

Not that I think you should stop washing your hands or anything. I have started wearing a mask, but it's more to keep from getting harassed than because I actually think it does anything to stop the spread.

And now it's almost October, and if I was to be really honest I think the media is desperately hanging onto this "pandemic" narrative solely because it's an election year. :rolleyes:

The candidate for presidency only need to do 1 thing: don't be a pathetic moron like the current president. By the end of the election his career is finished. And him getting the corona recently is a karma long time coming.

 

7.26 million infected already. Man it's like World War Z over there. Still in first place, India's second with 6.2 million, Brazil's 3rd with 4.8 million & Russia's 4th place with 1.17 million. And I thought USA's the only one that will pass 1 million.
