It seems nowhere is really safe from such an outbreak. Well, perhaps if you have an isolated island somewhere that is restricted or an underground bunker. One man named Marc Lipsitch is a professor of epidemiology. He specializes in the study of infectious diseases and the distribution or outbreak of them.
March stated recently that at least half of the world might become infected with the coronavirus as of this year. He isn’t the only specialist who thinks so either.
This is devastating news to learn for many. Many years ago, the black plague wiped out an estimated 30% to 60% of Europe’s population. Mankind hasn’t seen something like this for ages, yet this might be another pruning of Earth’s population.
The infection rate is alarming to say the least. Ever since mid-January, China has taken drastic measures in an attempt to control the outbreak. Many people cannot even leave their homes or wander the sprayed streets as they are under quarantine. The infection is believed to have started somewhere in Wuhan, China and has slowly spread to other locations around the world.
Nobody is safe and people should be cautious. Continue to practice good hygiene by washing your hands, door knobs and anything else that was publicly exposed. Traversing through highly populated areas is not wise either right now. Some airlines have canceled flights to locations such as China.
As of now, there are about 100 million people who have been isolated. Most of them are from Wuhan, China. People only can wander the streets with specialized passes nowadays. The population of this area is around 11.08 million people.
From what is understood, the virus has spread and been reported about in 24 different countries. At this rate, the virus will continue to spread among various populations even reach more remote locations eventually. A lot of people are now thinking that quarantine is not really working as it should.
With research and hope, a cure can come into play and change the outcome of this doomed scenario. Notably, not everyone will display signs of such a fever. Some patients will seem cured much like they recovered from a flu in a more milder form. Some patients examined displayed no signs of infection yet they might have been initially.
Those wondering whether or not they should attempt to be treated at home, should be wary. New viruses are required to be treated in such a way. Those who suspect they have these symptoms should immediately seek healthcare and be observed by professionals.
