A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with the video. Especially “Our World in Data”, the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.
In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.
What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

    Phew. That might have been the fastest we ever made a video. Literally working day and night. A huge challenge in talking about Corona was that the science is ongoing. So we put in extra special care to have good sources for this video and will update them in the coming weeks and months. Check them out here: sites.google.com/view/sourcescorona We could not have made this video without experts who took time in one of the busiest periods of their own careers. A huge thanks especially to Dr James Gurney and Dr Max Roser of Our World in Data for helping us make sure the video was as accurate as it could be in a situation that is changing daily. Also a big shoutout to ourworldindata.org/ - the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic. Working together with them over the years has been a delight. Ok. We are very tired and are going to take a nap now. Stay healthy!

    PLEASE STOP CREATING CONFUSING INFORMATION! Calling it 'coronavirus' will cause confusion for the general population the next time we have an epidemic of another corona virus, because people will just naturally assume that they've already had it, so they will wonder why they aren't immune to the 'coronavirus' that they are then getting sick from. This virus has a name, SARS-CoV2. Or call it the covid-19 virus, much the same as people understand 'poliovirus' or 'measles virus', called after the name of the disease that they cause. Because right now, we already have some people wondering why this 'novel coronavirus' isn't the same as the last 'novel coronavirus', BECAUSE FOOLISH SCIENTISTS ARE CALLING IT THE SAME NAME! So stop it already, it's a very stupid thing to do, and you should really know better.

    It's safe to say, it became a fast pandemic. NONE OF THE COUNTRIES reacted like they should have, except *China* which is already in fast recovery. The rest of the world really fucked it all up by drinking the virus away by going into bars and infecting thousands, and by acting *ignorant because they don't care if they become sick,* mostly young healthy people who aren't afraid to catch the infection and don't care about infecting and killing tens of thousands. I'm looking at all of you America. You selfish, drunk motherfuckers.

Jokes aside, I'm pretty sure Taiwan reacted and got it under control even faster then China did. Probably because they had prior experience or something. They saw this coming and started re-tooling bunch of factories to make N95 Masks very early on. And now they're mass producing high quality masks like they're trying to out-mask 3m and corner the fuck out of the entire n95 mask market and make away with all our doubloons.

    So now that the virus is slowed, were laying off hospital workers, hospital staff aren't overwhelmed, and the cases are going down, why are we now talking about needing a vaccine? I'd say mission accomplished, but for some reason we're still locked down.

    • PEPSIox
      PEPSIox

      How can you say mission accomplished when thousands of people are still dying and spreading the disease? Numbers of infected going down doesn't mean the virus is going away. People are still getting infected! Juts at a reduced rate because of the lock down.

    • happythankyoumore please
      happythankyoumore please

      @Drew L It wouldn't that it'd be unprepared, it would be overwhelmed. There are still millions of people to be infected.

    • The Derp Llama
      The Derp Llama

      @Drew L For one, vaccines for the virus are not just now being talked about, they have been talked about for a while. The problem was that we needed data and more research to be able to figure out how to create those vaccines. Plus, since cases have a high chance of rising again due to people being naive and rushing out of their homes, why would we stop the production and testing of a vaccine? Just because there are fewer and fewer cases does not mean that it's time to be free again. We already saw how fast the virus can spread, so until we know for sure that cases are extremely low and it is very unlikely to spread again, we need to be careful and stay inside. No your freedoms are not being tampered with, its for everyone's safety and I wish people would figure that out. I would get the point of the economy slowing down, so we need to reopen places and slowly get things back to normal. However, the keyword there is SLOWLY. Where I live, the governor of the state said businesses could reopen to a certain extent. Many people saw that as their chance to be free again. Everything went crazy, people rushed out of there homes, there were car accidents everywhere, etc... This just causes unneeded chaos and helps spread the virus more. Overall, the mission is not accomplished. Where you live it may be fine, but compared to places possibly near you or in America, it is not as good as you might think. Also, how exactly would we tackle it again if there is a second wave, without a vaccine? Just leaving it be will cause more trouble than it needs to.

    • Drew L
      Drew L

      I thought the point was to give hospitals a fighting chance. Yes, there may be multiple waves, but we can tackle that problem if it arrives now. Saying idiot isn't an argument, random internet person number 37,206. What, are you 13 years old?

    I really don't understand why the virus would spread to whole world. Even on the Chinese Internet , a lot of people blame the government and said the western world would solve the problem faster and better than China.they have the best medical system . Their people are more conscious , and their government is more efficient. Well, after two months....... it seems a little different...

      The virus didn't show symptoms and was misdiagnosed in the early days. People didn't care because it wasn't a threat to them. That is until more and more cases popped up and before we knew it it was wide spread.

    Hey, hey, HEY. Let’s not forget our immune system! It was meant to go out and get germs! Over 50K people die from the flu each year and e don’t wear masks for it! Your immune system only is overreacted when it’s damaged in some way. When you stop your immune system from doing it’s job, you weaken it. Then the virus can get in. Just something to think about....

    • happythankyoumore please
      happythankyoumore please

      You do know that if people come back from the coronavirus recovered, their immune system is still damaged. If the flu was to infect them, it'd be more damaging. Let's also not forget the coronavirus has killed 346 thousand people in the span of 6 months. How the virus gets in has nothing to do with the immune system. It's their job to do a response. Even a healthy person could experience a cytokine storm. Unlike the flu, the coronavirus hasn't been a regular visitor to the human body, so it isn't used to a response to it.

    IDK if coronavirus is false alert, but I wont risk my existence (edit) for it and be subject to external decease. You should use bottle of oxygen or n95 electrical respirator along with protection of ears and eyes/gas mask. Its virus not bacteria and surgeon mask won't protect you from it at all but lower the chances of infection instead.
