How Deadly Is The China Coronavirus For Australians
Recent developments surrounding the Coronavirus ever revealed the outbreak is much worse than previously reported. Early reports by the Chinese government said the virus had an incubation of two weeks and said that only a few hundred have died. This resulted in people suspected of being exposed to the Coronavirus being quarantined for a two-week period. The problem is we now know that the incubation. Is actually far longer and people may not show symptoms but carry the virus for up to four to six weeks. That means that people who were previously quarantined for the initial two week period were then let go but little did they know they were still spreading the virus.
How its spreading
Another previously reported fact about the Coronavirus is that it is spread through physical contact, bodily fluids, and orifices. We now know that the newly renamed Corvid-19 virus is Airborne and is spreading through the ocular surface. That means that dozens and dozens of frontline medical workers who have been where around the virus are now exposed. 1 Micron masks were thought to be sufficient previously but now full face masks and pressurized environments are required. China is now facing a new crisis because it’s frontline doctors are now coming down with the Corvid-19 virus themselves. The early safety measures were not actually enough to stop the spread of the virus. Early speculation that the Chinese government was not being completely honest about the virus of now essentially been confirmed.
Shrouded in secrecy
In fact, the actions of the Chinese government shows that it had more information about the virus than it previously let on. The government began building quarantine facilities to hold thousands of people weeks ago when it said the virus was under control. Yet they still told the world that it had a two-week incubation. And was not airborne. It is looking more and more likely that the virus was actually a man made virus and perhaps a biological weapon. Some speculation on the fringe even suggests that China may have deployed the bio weapon on its own people as a form of population control. These are just conspiracy theories at this point and there is no way to prove whether the virus was indeed made in a lab.
Even the Doctor Who was healthy and in his 30’s that reported on the coronavirus earning him the title whistleblower doctor has now passed away from the virus. Eerie video of Chinese government workers going door-to-door in the city of Wuhan and locking residence in their own homes is circulating the internet. As things progressively get worse and even the doctors become ill, resources are becoming stretched then and the people who were locked in their homes may now die in them without enough people to check on their well-being. Other videos show men in hazmat suits with rifles surrounding citizens up in Wuhan and taking them against their will into quarantine facilities.
Many of the people in the video were struggling to get away and did not want to be put in with infected people.
With such a dark disaster looming just over the ocean, Australians may be wondering how this could impact them. For now, I travel ban remains in effect and no cases have been reported in Australia. However, there have been 13 reported cases of Corvid-19 in the United States. There are also over a thousand people currently in quarantine who were traveling in China around the time of the outbreak. There is very little information about the quarantine facilities in the US and what kind of treatment people are receiving there. One thing is certain about Corvid-19, it is progressively getting worse and so is the situation around the world.
Tips to stay safe
Avoid contact with anyone it’s possible, wash your hands frequently, and avoid traveling to any countries currently reporting cases. If you do become sick, be sure to go to your doctor immediately and do not take any chances. There isn’t much for Australians to worry about at the moment as no cases have been reported anywhere in the country. With the proper travel bans in effect and strict quarantine measures employed by China, the United States, and other similar countries, hopefully no cases will appear in Australia.
