Its just tragic that the virus has become so widely spread, the Chinese government knew about the virus and even silenced Dr. Li Wenliang. Death tolls keep increasing and people unable to work leading to them to struggle with living expenses.
I completely agree the Chinese made big mistakes in the early stages and now the whole world is ablaze.Its just tragic that the virus has become so widely spread, the Chinese government knew about the virus and even silenced Dr. Li Wenliang. Death tolls keep increasing and people unable to work leading to them to struggle with living expenses.
To be fair to Boris he has accepted for a while that Coronavirus is the greatest public health emergency to have hit the world for some generations and he is trying after a poor start to protect the welfare of the United Kingdom. In which he differs from Trump whose major concern is the economy and who is quite happy to relax restrictions in the interest of that economy even if it costs many lives.
Boris Johnson is understood to have tested positive for the disease, as the outbreak spreads across the country.www.dailymail.co.uk
Hey Meatpie, keep your spirits up - there are more optimistic scenarios which are perfectly possible.Trump's opinion and health status doesn't matter the world is completely falling apart and there is nothing anyone can do. All research points that even in best case scenario and with restrictions millions will perish from SARS in all countries on all continents. Some estimates say between 50 million and 100 million victims until the end of the year.
Poorer countries in Africa, India, South America will be decimated.
Syria and Iran as well are particularly hard hit. There are many people in my area falling ill as well it's just a matter of time before I get it too it's everywhere.
I’m not sure things will get as bad as you fear. There is a theory that the virus may find it more difficult to replicate in hot climes although it will remain a theory at this stage since there is an absence of reliable data.The world now is completely different from the one in 1919. in 2020 All European countries including the UK import tons of fresh produce from Africa by planes and ships and prices are stable.
However once SARS starts spreading in Africa and the workers are no longer able to send regular supplies food prices will shoot up and many things that we take for granted like orange juice will disappear.
The global food chain will break down the stress and shock is immense.
People are fighting over toilet paper imagine what will happen when we start fighting over food?
Africa will be decimated by the SARS virus.
