why is everyone thinking it's going to be some extinction level event
@NatalieKeller95 Because the media is capitalizing on people's panic and fear I am scared but they are still blowing this out of proportion.
@Jackpot777s that's true the corona virus is a scary problem but it's not going to wipe out humanity, that being said in order to attract viewers they need to be sensational and fear is very sensational.
jeez what's with all the pessimism, where's the stop button to everyone saying it's going to increase and increase,
@NatalieKeller95 It's not pessimism it's realism. I just cited a specific example of a previous outbreak and at the rate numbers have gone up, it's very likely to do it again. You also have to keep in mind that the publicly acknowledged number are only the confirmed cases, and only between 10-15% of people noticeably experience the symptoms and would even submit themselves for screening, and a lot simply stay home in bed when they are feeling sick. We very well could be past 1 million already (and probably are).
ok what's the hopeful note though,
well if they're staying home why would the numbers keep skyrocketing then?
so how much of the world's population is that?
@NatalieKeller95 a lot
so pretty much the extinction of the human race?
do you really think it's gonna last 5 years?
@NatalieKeller95 I really think its going to be around for ever.
@humanearth Sad, because I don't see it going that way. Some countries, CHINA, especially have seen a major drop off of new cases.Millions? LOL!! Major pandemics like that, that kill millions are EXTREMELY RARE, and the last major one was in the early part of the last century. Medical science has advanced a billion-fold, over what they knew then!!Staying home, and sequestering, and the virus will burn out with nobody to infect!I am more concerned about the suicides because people can't deal with the stress and anxiety that the media is producing, and then the domestic violence and child abuse, from people being forced to stay so close, for so long!
@JackSmy yeah, but I been seeing a lot of dummies out there. I don't know how true this is. But my kids told me that there is group of young people purposely speading the virus.Now thats stupid
@humanearth Purposely spreading the virus? They should be shot, on sight, as we know it can kill, so how is that not premeditated attempted murder with a deadly weapon?
@JackSmy that's weird I was just promoted to admin for some reason
@NatalieKeller95 We all were. I just denied it
@humanearth and @NatalieKeller95 Yeah, popped up for me. Just clicked the X. Don't want to be admin here. Seems with so many of the ones posting hate and crap, not being shut down, that being admin here, would be like trying to make saints of the citizens of Hell.
@JackSmy I like it. If there very little moderation. I mean keep out the kid porn and the kid chasers. Other then that. I kinda like the idea of a almost complete free for all. A place for real freedom of speech
@humanearth Freedom of Speech, yes, 100% support that, but also, having RESPECT, in what you are saying! The Great Founders made Freedom of Speech, the First, for a reason, but they knew respect, and had manners, and properly debated, and discussed! A free-for-all rabble of shit, is not a good thing, in any way at all!!Disagree, but AGREEABLY, and not calling names, or slandering one that has a different opinion.
@JackSmy I know you know what I meant.
@humanearth Of course!
Trouble with Berry Barry, H enever shut off the Borders when it was even Swine Flu. xx
This is why that while I am scared of the virus I also see it as a huge circus when I watch the news. I mean Swine Flu did a lot of damage and it was all over the news in 2009 then disappeared yet in 2010 a lot more people died from it yet the news didn't even cover it anymore. With this it seems people are more concerned with politics and that circus going nonstop. Saying Trump called it a hoax and didn't take it seriously and saying Pelosi fucked up the stimulus package and all of these things that honestly are meaningless if we are going through this crisis right now. Also celebrities saying they got the virus is a complete joke because they are at way less risk than any of us are.
I'm pretty sure I had it a few weeks before it started getting picked up in my country in tests. I had the exact symptoms they say.
