The World Health Organization on Monday said the new coronavirus epidemic had "peaked" in China but warned that a surge in cases elsewhere was "deeply concerning" and that all countries should prepare for a possible pandemic.

The solutions to coronavirus is to take HIV medicines and give it to the patient. This will work because the molecular structure are similar. This worked in India. Share this message to others because it's important.

Most popular drinking game in the world since January: Watching or listening to WHO briefings and: 1.) taking shots every time Tedros says" window of opportunity", "window", "opportunity", makes a meaningless generalization, or 2.) taking a double shot any time anyone in the WHO praises the Chinese government for doing such a great job.... Regrettably, the game never lasts for very long. Everyone quickly gets too drunk to play anymore. :-(

The WHO is bought and owned by the Chinese Community Party. They are so eager to kiss CCP's ass by praising CCP, but neither one of them has any viable plan to contain this outbreak. The Chinese Communist Party is using the same playbook as the former Russian Communist Party on handling the Chernobyl disaster.

First of all why is mortality rate so high in Iran, Are there different strains of this virus. Same for Italy why so many people in serious condition. And the passengers on that Princess ship that was a joke, flown back on a regular flight. And only 35 cases reported in US

53 cases reported on ABC this evening. Way before you wrote your comment. The passengers you were referring to were on a chartered flight and did not fly on any commercial aircraft. There were 380 people, some went to the base in CA and some in TX to be quarantined for 14 days.

Humans are spreading the virus..SO if people stop travelling... only go out when essential..don't meet in gatherings this will seriously limit the spread... If you must go out wear an N95 Mask.. Safety Goggles, with rubber seal all around the inside and Surgical Gloves.. When you get home dispose of the gloves, wash and sanitise your hands and sanitise the Goggles... Stay Safe...

This Virus Was Launched By Aliens! I´ve Asked Them For It! Sorry Guys But The World Needs To Be Clean From Corruption And Overpopulation ! It´s The Only Way To Give Back Some Human Dignity For Those Who Will Remain!!! As Soon As The Summer Comes Back The Virus Will Disappear! Many Will Be Gone By Then And At Last Those Who Will Remain Will Live With Some Dignity! Until Bigger Events Will Also Happen And Reduces Mankind For 1/3 The Perfect Balance Nature Needs To Allow Real Life Quality On Earth! It Is Called The Equilibrium Momentum!

Question is how are the world nations going retaliate for China's negligent release of this biological pathogen accidentally or intentionally?? They have been splicing genetic material to make people immune to HIV what else have they done?

The Director General was a rabid Communist in a corrupt regime before he got the job he now has. Additionally, he said bad things about USA stopping flights from Red China.

Isn't the survival rate of this virus in the 80% range? What is this panic? More people will die from Flu than Corvid-19.

dab bean I actually work within the health system and other than one coronavirus (prior to COVID 19 title) notice about hand washing; there’s been zero proactive reaction. We’ve been persuaded not wear protective masks because it appears disrespectful. I personally have been wearing a mask and stating I have a cold; plus aggressively boosting my immune system with vitamins/ginseng/apple cider vinegar and exercise. Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst. 💫 Do you have any recommendations? Always attempting to absorb more information. 😄 Quote ‘It’s a province of knowledge to speak, it is a privilege of wisdom to listen.’

The flu also doesn't overwhelm your hospitals and shut down your economy. Something Twitter MD's don't mention. And the wu flu is something like 20x-30x more deadly than the flu which is something else they don't tell you. (0.1% mortality vs 3% mortality) Also when you're hospitals go down it gets even worse.
