CORONAVIRUS HYPE Anonymous 46165

I'm scared ;-;.
I'm already immune-compromised in other respects so I was already frightened of the flu and basic colds, so a spontaneous superbug scares the stuffing out of me. No shit, if it hits where I life I will quit my customer service job to avoid touching hands with people and getting sneezed on.

I’m Chinese and my parents are actually in China for Chinese New Year right now (but far away from Wuhan, the city the virus originated from). I’m much more worried for their sake.

They say that around 70% of the people in the city are wearing masks right now, but for the most part, people don’t go outside anymore, and New Year festivities are canceled which is a big deal in China.

I’m more worried about my grandparents since they’re elderly in their late 80s, so have weaker immune systems.

I've been laughing at how the news took this so seriously to think that this virus was gonna be the end. Now I've just found out that my dad spent a hundred bucks my family doesn't have on soup and crackers just in case every store in the city sells out and he's terrified if anyone so much as coughs.

This disease is on the other side of the world in the unsanitary, crowded, disease-ridden China. Everything will be fine here, things are being blown WAY out of proportion.

Anonymous 46303

The end goal of the news in china is different from the end goal of news over here. If even the totalitarians got freaked out, that says something, because it would disrupt the harmony and compliance that they angle for.

It's probably a virus lying dormant in more people than reported due to a lack of testing. For instance, Thailand relies heavily upon Chinese tourists and Asian backpackers and only has 37 cases. Seems sus. Other countries lack resources to carry out tests, or fear that taking it as seriously as a "potential" pandemic would incentivize mass panic and crash the market. Furthermore, two weeks isn't long enough for self-quarantine. Numbers point towards 30-90 days.

The morality rate is somewhere between 15-20% internationally and excluding Chinese data (since CCP is underreporting numbers for their "China strong" party image). That isn't so bad, but imagine if millions of people get infected. Most of the cases are mild. Patients at high risk would be those with pre-existing medical conditions or in poor health. The problem would be if hospitals become overfilled like in China, and the doctors have trouble giving proper care to the infected, leading to worsened symptoms.

While I do think that most people on this board will be fine, I believe that the media downplays the impact of Corona-chan to quell fear. Once governments acknowledge that this is a threat, it will be too late to control by then. I'm not going to stock up on hundreds of dollars of soup in crackers like >>46302 's dad, but I will make sure I have enough food to last me through two week, given that I'm actually in Asia. Iran and Italy of all places have become infected. A cult-esque religion in South Korea may have spread the virus to 20% of a town close to Seoul. Wash yer hands, Anonettes. There will be more countries impacted in the following months.

But >>47951 is also right. I'd like to believe that the Corona virus will be the apocalypse, but all the signs say that this'll blow over in no time. The best we could hope for is a few million to die? That hardly puts a dent in the sardine can that Earth is becoming.

nta and I don't know if the post is fake / if the date is edited considering the Italy predictions etc., but I have some experience in genetics and the bit about how some Brazilian bat mutation is totally going to up mortality to 15% doesn't make any sense to me.

The best information you could have about something like this would be extremely hypothetical, like some old guy researching a receptor XYZ in the immune cells of some Brazilian bat for 40 years, then reading that the coronavirus binds to a similar receptor in humans, then getting excited that his research is finally relevant and coming up with some vague hypothesis for how if the virus adapts to these bats, it could maybe have worse effects on human lung tissue.

But most hypotheses like this are false because finding the correct theories in genetics/biochemistry is difficult and takes laborious experimental tests, and even if the hypothesis were true, the virus wouldn't just mutate exactly according to this theory right when it meets the correct bats in Brazil. I mean I could be wrong, maybe there's more information about these things available than I know, just seems dumb to me.

You're probably posting ironically, but as a Chinese person who's originally from Beijing, this makes me happy somewhat.

When I grew up in Beijing, I remember the sky being so beautiful. I grew up near Heaven Temple (ancient temple in Beijing) and I remember going there and lying down, looking up at the stars in in the clear night sky. Nowadays you can't see that because there's just so much smog.

There's an old guy I follow on wechat (Chinese social messaging app) who's been making videos of him walking around in empty palaces and hutong (traditional Beijing streets/alleyways) during the coronavirus outbreak. While the coronavirus outbreak is definitely not good news, I can't help but feel like you can really feel the beauty of my home city when the streets aren't filled to the brim with people. It's nice, and my dad says that it's the way things used to be when he was a kid, especially during winter months when they stayed home to keep warm.

The hysteria over the virus is mostly because people can be carriers for it without knowing it, hence the self-quarantining you see people going on about. This is mostly to prevent any transmission to vulnerable demographics like >>49185 described.

He also lives in another country so I’m worried about travel bans being set in place and me not being able to visit him.

Literally fake news. This virus is very stable despite being an RNA virus because it has an error-checking protein. There was recently a story that came out suggesting that the virus had mutated into a new strain, but on further examination of the paper being referred to, the mutation in question was only 3 bps (IIRC the coronavirus is 30Kbps, so that's a difference of 0.01%). This virus has been out spreading for nearly 3 months now, so to have only diverged by 3 bps compared to the "original strain" is good news.

What they're talking about in terms of Brazilian bats is technically true, but highly unlikely. The only real way for this virus to significantly mutate is via recombination (viruses "sharing" DNA/RNA). The "getting to Brazilian bats" thing is a nothingburger too. People in Brazil don't have regular contact with live bats, and likewise we'd have to assume that the bats there are also harboring some compatible viral RNA, and that the virus would not only be able to make the jump to bats again, but that after spreading to bats, that it would spread back to humans. Unless we're talking on a long time scale of ~5 years, this is pretty magical thinking.

Vaccines aren't just, "found." They have to go through clinical trials like all other medications. Current estimates put the ETA of a vaccine at 1-2 years.

You're half right. Certain viruses can go dormant by being neuroinvasive, where they're able to avoid detection by the immune system. But the vast majority are not. Also, viruses don't really cause "permanent changes" in people. Otherwise humanity would be a bunch of cronenberg monsters within a matter of years. The immune system is very good at recognizing compromised cells and destroying them; that's what being sick is: your immune system literally killing all of your infected cells.

I will say, however, that there was one paper I read which found the capability of this virus (as well as SARS-1 and MERS) to be neuroinvasive. That said, to my knowledge, there's been no follow-up studies done on either patients who have recovered from any of these viruses to determine possible sequelae.

this guy mixes up a bunch of truths with distorted info or downright wrong things, be careful with this kind of alarmist posts. What he was saying about the Chinese lying about the causes of death doesn't really work like that. Obviously all the other diseases continue to exist, and many patients have died because they didn't have access to the best medical treatment, because the system was overwhelmed with the infected patients. Those deaths weren't caused by the virus. Also someone who has a terminal heart disease and dies because the virus exacerbates the disease shouldn't really be counted as a victim of the virus directly, because what killed him was the original illness, in rigour.
The number of infected patients is a lot higher than reported, but that is not such a bad thing considering those unidentified cases are mild enough to go undetected, and it means the death rate is lower than we think. Calculated R0 depends on the measures taken to contain the virus so it makes sense that it was higher in China during the initial stages.
be careful but don't panic.

I just wish humankind to get wiped out. I'm too tired of my life anyway, but finally there are more reasons to get up besides going back to bed. Now i monitor the virus spread and feel joy i've never ever felt in my life just by waiting when all of us will become equal in death. Merging with all the people into one hivemind entity would be nicer, though.
And i know it's not that serious and there would no significant damages to human population, but is it bad to feel good at least once in so many years?

Well my boyfriend lost his job due to businesses closing down.
I still have my job of collecting rent. Which is leading to very awkward and difficult calls to make. I really hope they decided to freeze rent.
I have to say this isn't what I would picture of society ending. I definitely didn't think I would be trying to collect during a economic crash. I was in the middle of looking for a better job but I guess I'm stuck in the meantime. I thought it would end more swiftly. I hope society would rebuild for the better and less in control of he rich and less damaging to the environment.

Wow I can't believe someone else feels the same way I do. The moment I wake up I jump out of bed with energy I haven't felt in years and rush over to look up more Corona news and see how bad it's got. I'm constantly reading people talking about it and how they're suffering.

Have been sick for 4 days now. Dry cough, sore throat, stuffed nose, head and muscle ache. Got some temperature too. Highest I have had was 38.2c and right now I'm 36.9c. I called hospital yesterday when I had 38c temperature and they told me to just stay home and take medicine. They don't think I have Corona but I'm so scared. I don't wanna die.

Anonymous 49579

You won't die even if it was covid, most likely you wouldn't even get symptoms worse than that. It can be dangerous to young people but quite rarely, especially until hospital max capacity is reached. We should avoid contact with others because the disease can still suck a lot even if you don't die, and so we don't infect (directly or indirectly) older or sick people, or take up a spot in a hospital.

Also a stuffed nose is rare with this virus, but very typical with the common cold, so most likely you have something else. Just don't take ibuprofen, the research is inconclusive but some have suggested it can make covid worse in young people. Hope you get better soon so you can stop worrying.

Totally. We're also getting all sorts of shitty disinfo because of Facebook. Maybe we're getting even more than US because people are still stuck in Facebook era over here, which is the most efficient cesspool for bullshit. My mother thinks corona was made in a lab so gubernment and Bill Gates can force chips inside our bodies by vax, which can be activated by 5G to turn you into a zombie. She also thinks she's a blue ayylien who came to earth to save people thanks to YT. Trying her best to spread the lies too, tells everyone IRL to follow her facebook.
She even has the audacity to say that her feed is getting censored. Clearly she hasn't seen proper censorship, because all she sees is conspiracy shit. If it were me I'd wipe it so hard no one would see it.
It's an uneducated person thing. My mom also says there's 0 casualties. Her reasoning is that people who die of other complications but have covid get written off as covid deaths. Also, there's no covid deaths because she's seen 0 people in her facebook feed or in her circle who is infected or has passed due to it. She says "back in the day when someone was infected, starving or dead, everyone in the neighborhood knew, we heard from people themselves, now, no one is saying their family is sick, it's only fake people dying." And she says that everyone who gets tested comes out infected for some reason, but if it were like that everyone would be infected. The rates would be much higher.

So she says, "doctors don't actually know what covid is. they just get a protein that all humans have and they're told its what covid looks like. also they get a test kit but they don't know how it works, just how to use it." This bitch thinks doctors don't know what a protein looks like. She went to med school and came out a ""nurse."" is this the power of soviet education?

I am so goddamn tired. If I have to spend another 10 years interacting with this woman in any way I'll kill myself for sure.

Hmm I guess it could be uneducated in terms of how the world works nowadays. She did go to school, but in the last year she also ended up believing in other conspiracy theories.

Oh hi. I wrote that original post you replied to from way back then. You'll be pleased to know that my life is pretty fucking miserable right now.

My dad has had to work from home for the past three months and I have no clue when he'll be going back. The rest of my family is going insane because, honestly, we can barely tolerate him but he makes the money for the house. I used to live nocturnally and have the entire house to myself at night but he's up at that time too now and what used to be my quiet time to relax is now ruined by the sounds of his video game at all hours and the man NEVER GOES TO SLEEP.

Of course the disease itself has had no effect on anyone I know (I don't know anyone who's gotten it) but I haven't been able to have a proper meal in ages because the stores are always sold out of the good stuff. This is Hell and society needs to pick itself back up as soon as possible (these riots aren't helping) because I can't take it anymore!

So yeah, I was wrong. Dead wrong.

Yeah I'm alive. Saw this post way back but wasn't able to post here until now (I wasn't banned as far as I know, but each time I tried to post anything site would complain about captcha).

The symptoms got worse after that post and I was sick for 7 more days. Temperature was 37-37.5c and I had so much phlegm that sometimes when I was coughing it up I'd feel like choking. Like the amount was just insane, I had mountains of paper jsut because I had to be blowing my stuffed nose so much. Had a lot of headaches and pain in general. It got better eventually and I recovered but I had no sense of smell for a week after. Probably wasn't corona but it was definitely the worst flu I have ever had. Luckily I haven't been sick since and I definitely hope I wont catch corona because just normal flu was so terrifying for me.

I'd say don't get vaccinated if you don't have any comorbidities yourself, as no vaccine yet has been proven to be effective at stopping transmission, so there's no reason to think you'd protect anyone else by getting vaccinated.

I don't know where you read that, but although there is no robust data that says it prevents transmission, the limited data we have now does point towards it being able to. Don't forget we know how other coronaviruses and RNA vaccines work, there isn't a very big chance that this one is going to be completely different.
The big doubt is whether it will give herd immunity. We have no idea about that yet.
