Coronavirus outbreak: WHO calls threat of COVID-19 pandemic "very real" | FULL

The World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General said Monday that the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic has become “very real”.

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus added that it would, however, be the first pandemic in history that could be controlled.

“The bottom line is we are not at the mercy of the virus,” Dr Tedros told a WHO news conference in Geneva on Monday.

Around the globe, more and more events were cancelled or hidden behind closed doors, from the pope’s Sunday service to a Formula One car race in Bahrain to a sumo competition in Japan, where wrestlers arrived at the arena in face masks and were required to use hand sanitizer before entering. In Saudi Arabia, all schools and universities were to close starting Monday, following similar moves in central China, Japan and other Gulf countries.

Questions grew about whether to maintain U.S. presidential campaign rallies and other potential “super-spreading” gatherings of people, as the virus entered new U.S. states.

  • Stay Healthy, Godbless and the most important thing Please! "BRUSH YOUR TEETH AND GARGLE 3x A DAY!!". There are so many things happening in your mouth. So many BACTERIA growing inside your mouth with bad breath.. Especially, when someone else's saliva while talking goes to some else's body part. Especially when you are eating garlic, onions, and other spices and it is hard to tell your partner or your friend to say "Brush your teeth!!" because of bad breath that has never been cleaned for a day(s) or so. Let us be honest, not many people in world will share this that you have a bad breath or smells like a dragon's breath because people will take it offensive. But at times of what is happening in the world right now, it is really the best time to tell or inform the people in a proper manner to "Brush Their Teeth and Gargle Mouthwash 3x a day!!".. Even the dentist will tell you that and also to keep us healthy! It is a common hygiene practice. When you eat meals or snacks.. "Brush Your Teeth!!" Especially going to bed is the worst case when you have bad breath and snoring.. especially close to someone while sleeping and snoring. So many bacteria growing in your mouth and gums and cavity and especially inside your throat.. Especially breathing it. It is otherwise the best act to "Brush Your Teeth and Gargle Mouthwash before going to bed!!". Stay Strong!! Stay Healthy! Please share this to the world and let them know!!

  • Go to the Taiwan news-he is closest to China-epidemic prevention-but he did the best-Taiwan's message-1 month longer than WHO-because of WHO's lies. One of the reasons why the virus spread the world. A 15-minute virus check drug. The vaccine will also be completed shortly.

  • Wuhan Virus (CoVID-19). …
      It consists of multiple clusters of pneumonia virus as the main stem. It uses a mixture to turn AiDS and Ebola viruses into tentacles, thereby facilitating the spread and expansion of the virus. Aerosol airborne infection is a biological warfare mixed strain virus developed by the Chinese People's Liberation Army p4 and p3 laboratories. (This is the focus of European and American issues and investigations.) China has denied the crime. The Russian Ministry of Health has reported a virus artificially synthesized by different viruses that barred Chinese from entering Russia.
      There is no complete detox method. Due to the leakage of the virus in China, the current virus infection in China is serious. The virus-infected cities and towns are strictly closed. Roads are forbidden for people to enter and exit to avoid being infected by the virus. Now the preparation of bags for the deceased is accelerated for millions People use. Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This is the worst affected area.
      Currently, the use of anti-AIDS and Ebola virus drugs, how to mix and use anti-pneumovirus drugs remains to be studied. Scientists are working hard. At present, the virus has a vector of a super viral vector (super communicator), and it is impossible to determine whether it is a patient by measuring temperature, and the body has no abnormal appearance. The spread is fast, but the main method to establish a quick screening virus is to establish a virus screening.
      Scientists suspect that artificially implanted mixed strains, non-naturally variable strains will directly invade the internal organs of humans and animals, become the source of host infectious diseases, and are mixed strains of biological warfare viruses. Bats and other wildlife are not the main source of the virus, but most types of human pneumonia virus strains. After rigorous screening of various virus strains, experimentally implanted virus strains in patient specimens were tested and successfully screened for extremely strong toxicity. It is suitable for human parasitism to become a host, which can achieve the ability and purpose of human infection.
      The research direction shows that governments around the world are integrating virus isolation technology from all over the world to find suitable antigens, and first understand the virus variability and the formation of mixed viruses. Can AIDS and Ebola antigens be mixed with pneumonia antigens and used in the body? Whether a vaccine can be made is for further study.
      Currently, anti-AIDS and Ebola virus drugs are being used, and how to mix and use anti-pneumonia virus drugs remains to be studied.
      Prevention methods: 1. Isolate and observe, seal and disinfect to prevent virus transmission. 2. Inject hypochlorous water into the sprayer to spray the virus. The spray device has a good disinfection effect, and hypochlorous acid water is made of water and brine. And no side effects.
      3. Individuals should carry out self-management health education, wash their hands frequently, and people with illness or respiratory diseases should wear masks and isolate them at home. Do not enter or leave public clusters. Pay attention to personal hygiene education. 4. Public agencies and airport terminals, stations, port customs, hospitals, parks and schools must establish temperature monitoring instruments and strengthen the establishment of pressurized spray hypochlorous water disinfection devices to enhance the ability to block and isolate viruses. 5. Buses, planes, ships and yachts should be disinfected daily with disinfectant water. 6. Everyone has a responsibility to prevent epidemics, and you and I must protect the family. 7. Taiwan has rich anti-SARS experience, has strong medical research institutions and medical researchers, has strong ability to develop and produce viral vaccines, has the ability to quickly screen scientific detection agents, and has good medical management and virus Monitoring capabilities. It is a leader of countries the world to prevent the spread of the virus. The World Health Organization should not give up. To have enough energy to regulate the virus globally. This will be a tragedy for all mankind. Taiwan should be allowed to join the World Health Organization. 8. Countries should ban or temporarily suspend various large-scale collective movements, assemblies, cars, religions, political parties and dinners in each country to prevent the spread and spread of the virus. It is recommended that all social activities be postponed at central epidemiological centers in all countries, as epidemics spread rapidly around the world and the spread of the virus in Korean churches has caused a high number of people infected with the virus. Countries should suspend closed space activities, and epidemic prevention operations are no exception. The government will receive the support and cooperation of the entire people and appreciate the hard work of medical personnel across the country.
      If the epidemic situation intensifies and worsens, it is recommended to deploy in advance, and local medical staff is advised to conduct on-site consultation and treatment to avoid consultation and treatment in narrow and confined places to reduce infection and casualties of medical personnel. Local township offices provide outdoor space for medical staff. Actively deployed to reduce medical casualties and maintain combat effectiveness. For severe and highly infectious cases, a mobile capsule negative pressure chamber tube bed can be provided, similar to the experimental diagnosis and treatment bed type of a childcare box, allowing individual treatment of severely diagnosed patients. The device is used for static sterilization, irradiation and sterilization of high temperature and ultraviolet catalysts, and the central government will study emergency treatment. When major infections occur in the community, people throughout the country should wear masks as much as possible to reduce outings and parties.
      In the future, the government is advised to study the vaccine as soon as possible, and to conduct the research before the first transmission of infectious diseases in the community. Preparations for universal virus inspections and rapid virus screening tests can quickly grasp the biggest weapon of the epidemic, and strengthen the protection and inspection of the entire population to ensure national health, the arrival of the government and our support.

  • This is why globalism is a bad Idea. People seem to forget that Viruses and plagues thrive when their hosts are interconnected more, even more so on a global scale. I hate North Korea.. but I'll give them one thing, they've not gotten any Covid 19 cases yet, least not to my knowledge.. I wonder why?.. It's because of their hermit like nationalism.
    I love that the left gets mad at Trump because he's not "Doing enough to stop the spread of the virus" but also gets mad at him for not being for open boarder and allowing immigrants in, further increasing the likelihood that the virus spreads to more parts of the world.

    Nationalism +1

    Globalism -1
