I'm not sure what your source is for that stat? There have been multiple news stories over at least the last week, from multiple news sources, citing the exact opposite of what you are saying, here is only one example:This class of pathogen doesn't last that long on surfaces or in the air anyway.
"The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel," according to the NIH.
Scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) -- part of the NIH -- mimicked the virus being transmitted from an infected person onto everyday surfaces in a household or hospital setting by coughing or touching objects, the agency said. Scientists then investigated how long the virus remained infectious on these surfaces.
A device was also used to release the aerosol which duplicated the microscopic droplets created in a cough or a sneeze, according to Reuters.
"The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, and suggests that people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects," the NIH said.
Scientists also observed that the stability of the virus in aerosols and surfaces likely means healthcare settings are vulnerable to the virus.
"Healthcare settings are also vulnerable to the introduction and spread of SARS-CoV-2, and the stability of SARS-CoV-2 in aerosols and on surfaces likely contributes to transmission of the virus in healthcare settings," the study found.
The National Institutes of Health and the CDC.I'm not sure what your source is for that stat? ..
That is patently false at this point. At absolute best case scenario it’s about as bad as the swine flu... at this point it’s pretty clear we are not in the best case.This virus is absolutely nothing compared to swine flu. Due to media coverage and overreaction by the general public, economic consequences will be far worse than the virus itself.
Except we had a vaccine for Swine Flu - enough to ration to high risk people as production ramped up.That is patently false at this point. At absolute best case scenario it’s about as bad as the swine flu... at this point it’s pretty clear we are not in the best case.
Compare deaths from swine flu in the US to this and get back to me. Yes, I realize there's still a lot of damage yet to be done, but it'snot close. Economic fallout from this is far worse.That is patently false at this point. At absolute best case scenario it’s about as bad as the swine flu... at this point it’s pretty clear we are not in the best case.
There is virtually nothing we can do to stop that. All of our efforts revolve around changing the pace at which infections occur.It sucks, but if we dont contain it, it will turn into another endemic (AKA the flu).
Aparently there is a place there that isis the same logo (but blue)..... the conspiracies are starting!Still not worried about it, this is nothing like the incident in Racoon City.
It'll be over soon enough, for now, we just wait, save up $$$$ and get ready to put down a deposit once it's revealed
