2020-03-21 02:10
The numbers of infected for each country isn't the real one! It's soo easy to blame China's politic but our governments do the same. The numbers are from tests and you need to pay for doing those tests. If you're poor, you can't do the test, which means that you're probably infected because you went to the hospital and you carry the virus everywhere.

And people will literally start doing whatever out of desperation just to feed their families, doesnt matter if they die cause its their families they’re going to care about, not themselves. And people that own guns will use them for self-defense if what Im describing happens.

Testing does not cure you, it matters more for knowing if you will be spreading the disease or not ie. not testing and not having people self quarantine is bad - if all people self quarantine then testing matters only when people are put in hospital or are health workers.

What are you on? Hospitals ar close to collapsing already in some countries. You giving a fuck about corona is your contribution to that. People with years left to live will die, thanks to people like you. Even with the spread we have in Norway today, its a big possibility the hospitals will collapse. Also, you dont know how people will respond to corona in the long run.

The crisis as you call it has to do with Covid-19. not corona.. The change was when it became covid-19. The corona virus have been around for 1000 of years.. and by saying the corona virus is to blame for what is going on now. is to say its because of the commen influenza and its not. The commen influenza is called corona. and have since before anything was called covid-19. So it is two different things. so they cant have the same name even if its the same string. But a nissan isnt a ford just because both of them are cars.

No... its not like that. you dont get corona = normal influenza that then change into the covid-19 Not at all. The covid-19 is a virus on its own.. in the corona family of virusses.. But its new. happend first time late last year. where as corona virus have been going around for 1000 of years.. and have caused deaths and so on but its normal. and we havent shut the world down because of corona ever before. and we still havent. its because of covid-19 because it is way more effective in infecting others.

You are mixing things up.. your names are correct.. but the way you mix them up is not. not sure if you misunderstand so lets cut all away from the statement. Fact is. corona virus and covid-19 are not the same virusses.. That is the statement. The same as skin cancer and lung cancer is not the same and so on. but that is the statement.

Im gonna forget what I said again, just sticking to the very point.. You say corona is a virus. You say Covid-19 is not a virus. countries close down and so on, because of the Covid-19 Simple facts.. So if the country close down because of covid-19 And covid-19 is not corona. You are agreeing with me. there is no corona crises.. There is a covid-19 virus. because its because of covid-19 we close things down. And you yourself just stated corona and covid-19 are not the same.

Did your mother drop you on the floor when you were a baby? For a start, it's not because a coronavirus and the covid-19 are different that it means they are not connected. You said "The covid-19 is a virus on its own.. " or "There is a covid-19 virus" but Covid-19 is a DISEASE, and NOT A VIRUS like you keep saying, provoked by a VIRUS called SARS-CoV-2 of the SUBFAMILY OF CORONAVIRUS (MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, HCoV NL63, HKU1 are other known coronaviruses). YOU CAN'T HAVE COVID-19 WITHOUT THE CORONAVIRUS SARS-CoV-2. Saying there is a coronavirus crisis, or a covid-19 crisis, or SARS-CoV-2 crisis make sense because they're all connected. There is no covid-19 without SARS-CoV-2 and there is no SARS-CoV-2 without coronavirus. When you're talking of a covid-19 crisis or SARS-CoV-2 crisis, you're just being more specific. In other words, if you accept there is covid-19 crisis, you must accept there is a coronavirus crisis because the virus SARS-CoV-2 (which is a coronavirus...) provoke the covid-19. I can't be clearer.

It has everything to do with "corona". "Corona" is the short form people started using to refer to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. It is NOT influenza, you're either trolling or horribly misinformed. Educate yourself: who.int/health-topics/coronavirus COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. SARS-CoV-2 is the name of this new strain, it is a type of coronavirus. There isn't "the corona virus", because there are many different types of coronaviruses.

Apologize for having a new account, i've been lurking for 8-10 years and never felt the need to post until now. Economically speaking, the countries on the top end of the GDP scale are going to be most affected, which obviously includes the USA. All countries will be hurt; the countries who have more to lose will feel it the most. Here in America, depending on what sector you work in your experience is wildly different. The food service industry is in shambles right now: Seasonal work which people depend on as things start to warm up temperature wise is non existent. A business owner and friend of my sisters in Charleston SC just had to lay off 67% of his catering business employees heading in to what should be their most busy time of year (Spring through early summer: Wedding season). Conversely, private businesses and those in independent sectors are largely unaffected until the government forces us to stop working. I work for a small business (30-39 employees) that buys and sells collectables. Our online sales are not great but still acceptable, and as an employee i'm still working 40 hours a week in the office. Everyone I know in general business is working remotely from home, and all of my friends in the various tech sectors were mostly working from home before this even started. It depends on what side of the fence you are on but there's no denying that COVID is rupturing our economy and the economy of other countries and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. There's a lot of misinformation about US healthcare being thrown around and how it relates to our current crisis. The reason why i brought my job up is because I get my healthcare through my job. I don't make very much money as an adult and I pay about 170 dollars every month to pay for my healthcare - that includes dental. I'm more than happy with my healthcare experience. Basic healthcare is significantly cheaper through most employers and bigger corporations like Walmart, Home Depot etc. Offer cheaper healthcare with more benefits than I have, and that's to entry level employees. Essentially if you have a job, you have healthcare. I can afford to pay rent, healthcare, other taxes and living expenses (gas, cell phone, insurance) on 15 dollars an hour and still save money every month. As a side note: If you're under 26 and your parents have coverage, you also have coverage through their plan. Pay close attention to the age of Americans complaining about our system while simultaneously not paying a dime for their coverage when they log off the internet. As it relates to COVID: those who don't have health insurance still have access to cheap consultation and cheap generics for prototypical sicknesses (Flu, cold, infection etc). You do not get charged for COVID testing (you still pay for your visit) in the state where i live (GA) and they are inviting at risk people for FREE consultation and testing as we speak. The concept that you can't receive professional and affordable help in the US without healthcare for an illness or virus is a lie. You can go uninsured into a free clinic and pay fifty dollars to see a doctor. If i go see a doctor within my network i pay a 60 dollar copay if it's my first visit. I'm not mad about that, i'm just using it as a reference. If you are uninsured and break your leg, or have cancer or have to take an ambulance to the ER then yes that's when you're looking at a big bill and these instances are where a large number of misconceptions about our healthcare system come from. In many instances i also agree with you. Our system is not perfect. Concerning COVID, however, this is not the case. If you're uninsured in America, yeah it can be pretty fucking shitty. My advice: Have healthcare. I'm in the lowest tax bracket, have no college degree and have been with my current employer less than 3 years but some how my life is good and my health insurance is excellent. Am i a millionaire? Fuck no. But i'm happy and more importantly i'm healthy. That's what it's all about.

I hope for your sake and for all your fellow countrymen that the virus is kept somewhat under control, else health insure or not is only a minor thing since the lack of resources in the healthcare system is gonna be the real issue. The US has fewer hospital beds per capita than Italy and with the mess Trump is making of things, like just that he has a lot of people not taking the crisis serious enough due to his constant positive spin. On top of that there is all the illegals which will not want to go to hospitals for fear of getting deported, the many homeless, the ones that can not afford to miss work so they will stay working while sick... essentially I doubt the US will be able to avoid a quick spread of the virus and thus a health sector which is totally overwhelmed making Italy look like nothing!

Did u guys know that Covid was created by usa military laboratory in 2015? And then at the world army parade, 200 us soldiers were at china just 3 weeks before the virus hit Wuhan.. And also Wuhan has similar laboratory with viruses, that also had the same virus there before it hit Wuhan, so its total lies what they say, im sure the numbers or death and infected are lies too, I do believe this I have a video link, but it is in Latvian language, but the guy has found some real good facts about the virus and corona outbreak... I do believe him, because I dont believe such a virus that spreads so rapidly fast and gets people killed cannot come out from nature..

Italy is not even a part of the least developed countries. imagine the damage it would do in, for instance, India, a country where the infrastructure is terrible and the health care is probably nonexistent.

healthcare is free and available to most people, whoever needs it, gets the healthcare they need. people in Italy live to the age of 83 on average because of their diet and lifestyle, but not because of healthcare. in Italy, it is legit possible to buy the title 'doctor' even if ur not qualified enough. you see they are still a developing country and like I said bad to mediocre at best, but far from the worst. what I'm trying to say is, Italy's healthcare is nor will ever be number 2 in the world, and you'd be delusional if you were to believe it is/will be.

I feel like HLTV is wrong place to talk about this stuff because 95% of this community is still waiting for mom to make them dinner. Its kinda hard to talk with kids about adult life or "real life problems". I know people IRL who lost like 100k euro in a month because They had to close the business and 100k euro in Poland is kinda huge money since most of the people earn like 900 euro a month. I am so happy that I pulled all of my money from stocks in January cuz I was pretty sure back that virus will get to europe and market will go down real quick.
