Let me tell you about Coronavirus
- WHO (World Health Organization) announced that there are 79.300 infected with COVID-19. Majority of them, 77.000 are in China, mostly in Wuhan.
Wuhan has 11 millions of people. Let's say that all of 77.000 are infected.
77.000/11.000.000 = 0.007
Or 0.7% infected Wuhan people..
99.3% of people from Wuhana DON'T have the virus. And we are talkin about the origin of this virus.
And what about mortality?
If you're over 80 years old, the chance you will die is 14.8%. Which means 85.2% will be healed.
If you're 50-60, there's 1.3% chance you will die.
For younger than 40, the chance is 0.2%, so 99.8% <40y will get healed.
That's ONLY if you actually get the virus. The chance you will get the virus based on the spreading rate is - 0.7%.
So, there's 99.3% chance you will never be infected.
There is a possibility, YES. But it's nowhere as close as you read on the media.
By the way, China has 1.386.000.000 of people. ONLY 77k is infected.
That's 0.0055% of Chinese people, which means that 99.9945% Chinese people DON'T have the virus.
So, there's no place for panic. Stop giving media the attention because that's what they want from you: to click on their shocking titles. The fact that drugstores are selling masks for ridiculous prices tells you enough if you're smart. The mask CAN PROTECT YOU for 3 hours - nothing more. Stop believing it's a reliable source of protection, because it's not.
Wash your hands often, avoid the crowd, ventilate your rooms, have a distance when you're with people.
Even if it happens that you contract the virus, you will most likely have some mild symptoms and you will be better in a week. :)
