We have a Pandemic.
On March 11th, the World Health Organization declared that Covid-19 as a pandemic. In the three months since the newest Corona virus infection SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19 (the name of the condition) appeared in Wuhan China about 120,000 people have been diagnosed with it and about 3,500 people have died. SARS stands for severe acute respiratory syndrome. As of this date, (March 12th, 2020), there have been about 1200 cases of Covid-19 with thirty-six people having died from Covid-19 in the U.S. There is growing concern about the pathogenicity of the virus, what risks this virus will have on our health, what implications it would have on our economy and on our way of life if it were to continue to infect mass amounts of people here within our borders.
As with any pandemic, these concerns are justified. Digesting the latest data on infection rates will help us understand the situation and give ourselves, and our society the opportunity to protect ourselves adequately. (click the headline to see the rest - cause and cure)
