The reasons why more men/more elderly people are affected is likely for hygienic and health reasons. Studies show that women are in general better at being hygienic and having healthy lifestyles. Women, for instance, wash their hands significantly more often and also use soap more often than men do. And as we know, washing your hands is a great way to prevent the coronavirus from spreading. Plus, if you live an active and healthy lifestyle, it's more likely that your immune system is in tip top shape. Therefore, elderly people are at risk because of their already deteriorating health, and men are slightly more at risk due to poor hygiene and more unhealthy lifestyles. It's simple biology.
@lumos It might be true that women are more hygienic but the reason stated in the article I saw was women don't smoke in China. At any rate, it does take care of two problems in China. That is not something that should be ignored.
Not washing hands is such a gross habit.
There are actually those types of markets all over the world though but there aren't viruses coming out of those places.
@BlueRosez There are already many types of Coronavirus. Each is associated with a different species of animal. Normally, they are not dangerous for humans. In this case, a Coronavirus found in Pangolins probably mutated into a virus capable of infecting humans.There are some types that originated in other countries, like MERS in Saudi Arabia, believed to have started in camels. It is similar to the many types of flu. Originate in different countries.

Virus develops over time. It's possible that this strand took time to adapt to its host before going into battle-mode with us.
China lied to cover their own asses
Yep, the covering their asses thing is far more likely. They were scared at how fast it was leaping about, afraid their hospitals couldn't keep up, which they couldn't... I mean did you SEE them arresting people and slapping them in isolation when they refused to obey the distrancing and isolation rules? AND the odd thing was the people arrested were BELLIGERENT and angry! In America this social distancing has occurred before. I wasn't cognizant or alive when polio had a giant resurgence in 1955. Kids were pulled out of school and quarantined with their entire families at home. Very few adults appeared to get it, hence the name "infantile paralysis," so families could function. But doors were plastered with giant quarantine labels and the name of the illness POLIO clearly visible from the street. Often every child in the family got the illness. Some were lucky and had no ill affects initially. Others ended up like Franklin Roosevelt, crippled for life. Those who were exposed and had no early effects had ill effects decades later as older adults. Usually mild to severe paralysis. As with Covid, there is later lung scarring in severe cases. And technically, we don't know if there's lung scarring in mild cases or if it will show up later as diminished lung capacity, which is a serious problem. Your lungs oxygenate your fucking HEART which pumps blood to the rest of your body. Compromising that system fucks up a human. Since this has affected every nation, I don't see how there was an advantage to letting this loose.
@Screenwriter There was no advantage. Didn't say they were going to use this for some kind of weapon or hell nor did i even say that it's a weapon. I just said that something accidentally happened like someone was exposed or got sick & it just passed on from their
And i love the people trying to defend China when China has lied their asses off about those reported number of cases & also like i said, covering it up months ago
STOP BEING RACIST !!!
This is mere conjecture and speculation and has no room in science. Show us evidence.
I won't waste my time to give you all the reasons , but u can live with one..The test kits used to verify if a person had Corona was defective as disclosed by Spanish Newspaper. Just moments ago.The test kits were supplied to them by none other than China.Spain has now stopped using those test kits.
There are millions of viruses and bacteria around that don't affect and haven't leapt to humans because of simple accident. They've been around for hundreds of thousands of years. Though Mad Cow Disease is neither bacterial nor viral.. it shows a logical leap from animals to humans with no intent.."When an animal or person eats or is exposed to tissues containing abnormal prions, their own prion proteins are converted into the deadly abnormal form.Prions can also misfold on their own accord and give rise to disease. Occasionally, genetic mutations lead to prion diseases that run in families. Mad cow disease HAS JUMPED SPECIES - from sheep to cows to humans.How do humans contract mad cow disease?It's believed that mad cow disease is spread to people when they EAT INFECTED BEEF PRODUCTS. The human version is known as a new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob (vCJD) disease to distinguish it from a form of CJD that occurs naturally in about one in a million people. Since the first human cases were diagnosed in 1996, more than 80 people have died of vCJD in Britain and three in France."So, these illnesses do not even NEED a lab to cause the havoc they do. They simply stumble into the human population and since there are so many of us living in close quarters, they decimate us. Think of the black plague, the flu, polio. Ebola, SARS, MRSA, H1N1, pneumonia... pneumonia has a viral AND a bacterial form. It's a dirty world. We've got to keep clean in it..
Pick up a history book.
It is not something big. Media makes it big.
The nature of viruses is to mutate over time to become stronger, more contagious and more dangerous. That's the whole point of viruses. They wouldn't exist anymore if they didn't constantly naturally mutate and become stronger/more effective. There's no cure because viruses are not like bacteria that can be killed with some antibiotics. Viruses can only be fought through vaccines and immunity. That's the only way we could get rid of them; by naturally letting them die off. Animals definitely can be the carriers of these viruses, and that's often where the virus mutates and then starts spreading to humans.Instead of spreading misinformation due to your clear ignorance on the subject, please pick up a book on biology and read about how viruses work. This is very basic stuff that you should have already learned in school.
Also, vaccines take time to develop. Since this is a new string of coronavirus, it will take time to develop a safe vaccine. A good and safe vaccine usually takes a year or two to develop.
I guess you think smallpox, measles, and bubonic plague MUST have been made in a lab since they were far more contagious and deadly than covid19.
Hey guys, i dont give a fuck lol
Corana is exegerated by media
@Vivaldi you sure about that? Govm didn't shut down everything cuz media says so, they are not stupid. literally whole world is on shutdown lol. I dont think corona is "nothing" like you says. There could be possible side effects later in life. I don't think people on high positions would overreact for nothing. U all dumb
Corana is exegerated. There may be something else beyond it.
My father is a doctor and he says it is exegerated as well.
@Vivaldi and you really think whole world would be on shutdown cuz of some random flu? And with all this technology that they couldnt find cure? I still think there are some awful side effects later in life with lungs etc...
You are one of the few that gets it.Here is some evidence : English.whiov.cas.cn/.../t20171201_186818.html
@sawno Interesting! Thank you for sharing this
That's exactly what happened and it will only cost a million to find out more about this! Join now.
@BlueRosez y'all are killin me... No, wait... the virus is... hack hack...
Even scientists can't predict the future. This is simply a new string of coronavirus that has mutated over time. Nobody has been "clueless of what this is", it just took doctors and scientists a while to figure out how the virus works (symptoms, how it spreads/how contagious it is, how long it can survive on surfaces etc) - again because of the fact that it's a new kind of virus. Doctors and scientists can't just make shit up, they have to research the available data and study the virus before they can come to any factual conclusions.
I wouldn't go that far since there isn't enough evidemce of bio engineering. But it certainly breached from the Wuhan Virology Institute who was experimenting with the virus. As a bioweapon it makes very little sense given its origin and qualities.If you wanted a good bio weapon you want a short incubation period with high mortality rate so its effective and can be controlled.This is more in line with a population reduction weapon but even there it makes no sense. You would deploy that on a busy international airport so its untracable not near the facility that made it.So all evidence points to a lab experiment that breached quarentine.
who said that and with which proof?
What did the report state specifically?I heard people denying its human engineered with decent evidence, i heard a denial of a weapon lab with reasonable evidence.But nobody so far attempted to or succesfully debunked it breaching from the Wuhan Virology Institutes bat farm.
