Can you imagine being in “blinding pain” for weeks, constantly gasping for air as you feel like you are being suffocated, and screaming for mercy because you are in so much constant torment? As you will begin to read and , coronavirus survivors are telling about their hellish ordeals, and they are warning us to do everything that we can to avoid this virus. Of course they are the lucky ones. The global death toll has doubled over the past six days, and so far the very high death rate in the United States is extremely alarming as it does not look to let up soon. So those that survive should consider themselves to be very fortunate, but many of those same individuals will be left with permanent lung damage. This virus attacks the respiratory system with a ferocity that is shocking doctors, and those that are still attempting to claim that COVID-19 is “just like the flu” need to stop, because they are just making things worse.
Researchers have found that this virus has an incubation period of up to 24 days, and people can spread it around long before they are showing any symptoms.
And you don’t even have to encounter someone with the virus to catch it. According to Bloomberg, new research has discovered that this virus can remain on surfaces “for as many as 17 days”…
Researchers looked at the rooms of infected passengers aboard the Diamond Princess, both those who showed symptoms and those who didn’t, according to a study in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
When you combine those two factors, it makes COVID-19 nearly impossible to contain.
This is a major emergency, and it makes us angry that there are prominent voices out there that are still trying to downplay this pandemic. Imagine in SA when in gets into the townships and grows at a compounding rate of 43% as it has in Gauteng over the past 9 days. This is resulting with many people not taking proper precautions, and a lot of them are going to end up catching the virus. Have compassion for these people, because many people are, as with HIV/AIDS, burying their hands in the sand. This time is may just be your turn or the urn of a loved one.
If you are reading this and you still don’t think that COVID-19 is a big deal, please take a moment to reconsider because unless we are being hoodwinked by rates of infection, growth rate of the so called virus and the death, whether we are believing old age or other conditions contributed to the high death rates already, best to be prepared. No harm in that while we have the time.
