  • Don't you feel ashamed now? You should. September 27th 2020: current studies are correlating the Covid-19 fatality rate at 0.1% 0.1% Sept 18th: Dr. Martin Feely is clinical director for the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group and a former vascular surgeon. He states that Covid-19 is " much less severe than the average annual flu ". Sept 20th: Dr Shiva is a medical doctor, renowned expert in the field of the human immune system, holds multiple degrees from MIT, and a respected inventor. Here he explains how and why the public have been completely misled by covid-19. The Public Health Agency of Sweden (today) : The Covid-19 fatality rate in those younger than 70 years is 0.1%. 0.1% But YOU know better than professionals far more qualified and experienced than you will ever be. FFS Find some integrity, you blinkered freak.

  • Feb 3, 11 cases. Boy how things have changed since then, eh doc? Science and medicine has learned so much more, and even how to reduce transmission. Trump on the other hand mobilized a scared population that can no longer tell truth from lie to pressure states to open. And the Trump administration did not make it economically viable to remain home for the rest who did understand the danger. Americans are in danger of losing everything cause they are on their last dime. But Trump sure did take care of his donors. They gave millions and got billions in return. Hell of an investment, no? America, my heart aches for you. We in Canada frankly should be the ones building a wall at our borders.

  • *The current Director-General of the WHO is Tedros Adhanom, former Health Minister and Foreign Minister of Ethiopia, who began his five-year term on 1 July 2017.* He previously served in the Government of Ethiopia as Minister of Health from 2005 to 2012 and as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2012 to 2016. *Criticism and scandal* _In May 2017, just prior to the WHO election, stories surfaced about an _*_alleged cover-up of three possible cholera epidemics in Ethiopia in 2006, 2009 and 2011._*_ The outbreaks were allegedly wrongly labelled as "acute watery diarrhea" (AWD)-a symptom of cholera-in the absence of laboratory confirmation of Vibrio cholerae in an attempt to play down the significance of the epidemics._ *His election was historic, as he became the first African to lead the WHO and becoming the first director-general who is not a medical doctor.* *__* *During the COVID-19 outbreak his strategy has been to coax China to co-operate in global efforts against the disease rather than criticizing the Chinese government.* *_While long calling on countries to take greater action._* He has also faced criticism for the WHO's handling of the outbreak, including *a late declaration of the disease as a pandemic.* During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tedros was widely criticized by the public as he was perceived to have acted slowly in his efforts to stem the epidemic. *In the first week of February 2020, he stated that there was no need for the world to take measures that "unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade" such as worldwide travel restrictions.* *_This was interpreted to have contributed to the spread of the virus._* A petition on demanding the resignation of Tedros for his perceived capitulation to Chinese authorities received over 628,000 signatures. .

  • Now it’s recommended to wear face masks to protect yourself, YOU spreading misinformation probably caused more ppl to become susceptible to the virus. And for that I think your disgusting.

    Ami AliAmi Ali6 kuukautta sitten
    • I don't think he spread any misinformation. The masks can't protect you from the virus. It's basically just practicing proper hygiene, not touching your face and social distancing. People bought a lot of surgical masks since the beginning, which made them go completely out of stock in many places and the prices went up; which might have led to the ones who were affected and the healthcare professionals without any! On WHO's website it asks people to only wear masks when they're coughing, sneezing or have covid-19.

  • how is a Rnaught of 3 anything like that of the 1.3 that influenza has.. one is an almost linear spread the other is massively exponential

    Thenas88Thenas887 kuukautta sitten
  • I do hope CDC can encourage people to make their own masks (if they are concerning about running out of supplies). This can protect others and reduce the spread (at least as a barrier)! Because now no one knows who has the virus. It would be too late when you notice the symptoms. There are several videos about how to make your own mask (which is better than none, and not impacting the supplies for hospitals): Most asian countries (Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, etc.) use face masks, while western countries don't, and suffered much more!

  • 8:15 19 mil infected, 180k hospitalizations, 10k deaths in US this flu season. Ive seen italian flu deaths between 15k and 40k but only 240 officially recorded. Want to remember these numbers and compare them to covid-19 when the true numbers come out. Remember, how are these statistics made? Most with flu just stay home and don’t say anything unless very very sick. Same with covid-19 probably.

I do remember you said that the source was possibly from bats or snakes in the last COVID video you did. I know you aren’t a vet, but I’m not sure if the source you got your information from included exotic pets- like reptiles and other uncommon animals. I’m especially worried about my mouse as I know they are able to get infected with a lot of human viruses like influenza.

  • At the hospital I work at, our phrase is "to prepare for the worse but hope for the best" so we made a ton of early precautions when we only had 2 cases in my state of Michigan. Now we're at a point where breweries are gonna be making hand sanitizers, the auto industry will be making more ventilators, and tailors/people who like to sew will be making face masks at home. This isn't the best circumstances but any help is better than nothing.

  • I think coronavirus is a scam to mess with the world economy if what (WHO) the world health organization says is true about the common flu. According to them last year 650,000 people worldwide died of the common flu. That is an average of more than 54,000 people per month every month. So far in the past 2 months about 10,000 people died worldwide of coronavirus. So why is the coronavirus causing panic worldwide? Isn't it coincidence that China started this virus and their economy is barely crippled while the rest of the world's economy, especially the US are screwed big time? Have you guys noticed the chaos this is causing in the stock market? I think Trump is being played by China.

  • How long till someone who has the virus is no longer contagious? A girl at work has tested positive, she has been out of work since last Wednesday. A girl in the same office took off for 3 days because she was sick and came back to work today because she "feels fine." She was not required to get tested by the owners. I have no proof that she actually has the virus, I'm assuming since she shares a office with girl who has tested positive, but I'm worried she's still contagious because she came back to work so quickly.
