@Lawyerh the situation is dire, out of the 3500 ppl on board of the cruise - Diamond Princess, there is already up to 454ppl are infected.

 

they are quarantine inside the cruise ship that is infected, at the rate they are going, the whole ship will bound to be infected if their own country is not doing anything about it....

 

im glad to be reading news that some of the country are working to evacuate their own citizen.....

@angelangie Situation not too good. Many shipments was delayed too. Aside from than the human lives impact. The economic will be going down as well. I think it might be dragged for around another 5 months? As from previous SARS history which last for around half a year. 

 

Thanks for updating the news @angelangie & @singlebilingual

yes economy will be impacted for sure.....i work as a CS in manufacturing lines....so i can tell of the impact and also this is one of the reason why we are keeping on top of the situation...

 

it will not be a total down...it will depends on which organization and also how fast the company can react to the situation....bigger and larger firm will have a better contingency plan however those local company will face a bigger impact.....as their contingency plan will not be in proper order so for them to get approval to start work will be one big hassle.....

 

however we can only see this far......

 

hopefully with the plasma donation it can really help to speed up the recovery for those affected person....

Some advises that one can follow.....very simple one....

 

Doctor's advice about coronavirus:

1. It is pretty large in size (cell is about 400-500nm diameter), so any normal mask (not just the N95 feature) should be able to filter it out. However, when someone who's infected sneezes in front of you, it will take a great 3 meters (about 10 feet) before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

 

2. When the virus drops on metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours. So remember if you come in contact with any metal surface, wash your hands with soap thoroughly.

 

3. The virus can remain active on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent should kill the virus. For winter clothing that does not require daily washing, you can put it out under the sun to kill the virus.

 

About the symptoms of the pneumonia caused by Coronavirus:

1. It will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling which will last for 3 to 4 days

 

2. Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This process will take 5 to 6 days.

 

3. With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You will feel like you are drowning in water. It's important to go seek immediate medical attention if you feel like this.

 

About prevention:

1. The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public, so you must wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 mins, but a lot can happen in those 5-10 mins (you can rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly).

 

2. Aside from washing your hands frequently, you can gargle with Betadine Sore Throat Gargle to eliminate or minimize the germs while they are still in your throat (before dripping down to your lungs).

 

Take extra care and drink plenty of water.

@Lawyerh this is some of the impact on the economy you can find....the hardest hit so far is the tourism and airlines, below one is for SIA and Cathay Airlines had already asked their staff to go on 3 week unpaid leave too till somewhere end February if I'm not wrong

 

 

 

Firm / company that have factory/ operation is fighting to resume their operations, to the normal status...however it is a struggle for most as they need to ensure contingency plan in first to ensure the safety and also to avoid the spread of the virus

@angelangie yes its difficult to resume per normal, as all need China government approval first. And there's a lot still pending / rejected. 

 

yes bigger firm or international firm that have oversea ppl coming in with contingency plan get better return rate...however smaller firm that do not have international help from oversea counter part will be facing alot of issues.

 

there is another life trackers that i use is thewuhanvirus.com
