Do you know about the Spanish flu from 100 years ago? That came in 3 waves. I dont understand why this flu couldn't do that. Theres already cases of people being infected twice, and it can jump species to species. Apparently a dog recently died from it (not sure how true it is hence the word "apparently"). This isnt just some ordinary virus, theres a lot unknown about the potential it has. It is a strain of SARS but it's not SARS.
I am not claiming to be a scientist and 100% know things. I'm just trying to make people understand the seriousness of the situation and hopefully prevent some people that dont take it seriously from going to beaches, vacations, etc. That nonsense needs to stop.
The self isolation were doing is good but it will only slow the spread, not stop it.
I was at Sobeys today and seen a man touch multiple packages of meat looking at the prices. Just put this into perspective:
1) hes already infected and has now put the virus on not just 1, but 5 or 6 packages that a family is going to take home to eat.
2) he wasn't infected, but someone that was touched it yesterday. Now hes spread it to other packages plus if he touches his face hes infected. The money he hands the cashier infects the cashier. The cashier then infect the customers they handed change too before washing their hands
3) likely but not guaranteed, no infection spread. Felt like I need to say this or the replies will be "oh you forgot to mention this" instead of focusing on the point
So that 1 careless person has past it to multiple people. Those multiple people pass it on to multiple people and the course continues. 14 days later when symptoms start arising the positive testing will be through the roof because none of them had symptoms and felt like they were taking the right precautions. By this time the virus spread so much it's pointless to continue the self isolation as we are now and the government will decide to shut EVERYTHING down and put Martial Law into place.
WHY WAIT UNTIL THAT POINT?
Kill the virus before we lose our loved ones!
We have the hospital capacity to treat the critically I'll now, we wont in 2 weeks, and that's when the death toll will sky rocket. Dont believe me go ask someone from Italy how serious this virus is
