We enter the 4th month of the 2020 year. With the normal calendar, it’s one special year. In some meanings. For example, the 2020 year has the February month with 29 days. Most of all, the significant event all human being is facing -> it is the virus.
Right now, the virus has the name as COVID 19 in common, SARS CoV 2 in some medical facilities. You have tracked all the information about this virus as it happens in the USA. There has a lot of myths, ideas about this virus. However, it never confirms in the official ways.
Let’s review the facts from our USA government Departments-> and then, some small piece of information, perhaps it considers as the myths.
What is COVID 19?
Do you wonder about the name of this virus? Do you know the history or 🙂 perhaps background? Let’s review facts from some reliable and trusty sources.
Name: (officially) COVID 19 = Coronavirus Disease and 19 is the year 2019. -> this fact, you can easy to find on Wikipedia. Even it’s not official like the USA government, millions of people trust Wikipedia as the online source.
Coronavirus is are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections.Wikipedia
Based on Wiki, this virus has the background.
Background: it happens before in some Asian countries. The virus, at first, happens in the animal (pig, chicken, cow,etc.) with a massive death. Special pig. By contacting with animal, some people get this virus from 2002-> it under control around 2004 -> then, 2012, this virus develops into the new form-> so it has the different name according to the situation-> one more time, it takes nearly 2 years for all involved countries keep in the control. -> now, somehow, this virus transforms one more time and attack our human.
Since USA CDC ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and WHO (World Health Organization) state many times in their official website, you won’t find anything further facts than it (because I am normal civilian 🙂 )
Here is the direct link back to the USA CDC-> at there, you find:
- Symptoms and testing
- Daily life during the outbreak
- What you need and MUST DO if you are sick
- Information for extra caution
- School and other things in community
- Case and update news
When COVID 19 happens?
Unofficial way, it happens somewhere around December of 2019. At that time, nobody believe it would blow out as the serious disease.
And then, January 2020 is the official time China Government and Wuhan officials confirm the virus spread in local people.
Where COVID 19 first start?
In reality, Wuhan is the location where doctors find out about the virus. The victim also the killer brings this virus from the urban of Wuhan city. And now it’s still spreading around the world
Who is the first victim of this COVID 19?
About the first victim in the world aka in China, it’s a man.
And people said: that man is the first victim and also the killer of more 40 thousands people.
Who first find out about this virus?
One doctor in one Wuhan hospital is first person aware about this situation. However, other higher rank people skip the report at that moment and now we have one million people have this virus in the worldwide.
How does it happen? and How it can spread so fast like mice/rats giving birth
It has the story. Some people tell that story as the myth. Some even don’t know how it happens.
The story Chinese population shares:
It was a middle-age man. He was travelling to urban area of Wuhan city for relaxing. During the adventure, he “was excited so much”-> he wanted to discover more in the forest. He did what we want. And get lost.
At the critical moment in his life, he decided to kill some bats in the nearby cave for the hungry stomach.
And then, he was rescued by forest rangers. They transferred him to the hospital nearby as the common case -> at there, one doctor paid attention to his condition because he had some unusual symptoms comparing with malaria.
This doctor took closer supervisor and report the case to the higher rank level in the hospital. He also worried this would be the new kind of virus-> The doctor reported to some city officials
Unfortunately, officials plus others didn’t believe in his words and his “special patient” at the moment -> this happened around December 2019. Around one month later, that special patient plus the doctor, who warned others, are dead! because of the new virus at the moment.
If you am curious how it spreads-> no need to think deeper and further. The COVID 19 virus has been spread like we have known these days: through the breathing close air with the infected patient. -> this is how far we know.
In China and Wuhan city, when the virus hit the crisis, the spread happens less than 3 foots.
Last is about why
About the reason… we don’t know what is the true. It has many rumors and myths.
Many Chinese population is angry and cursing on the man who eat the bat meat in the urban area.
Many Chinese people said that man is so stupid and so ego that he implicated the whole population in the world -> that man name definitely listed in the “Great series killers in the human history”.
At the end, I would like to share the reason this post is written.
To you, this virus brings challenges?
Then, have you ever think about the opportunities this virus brings?
There has the saying:” challenge also is the opportunity”
Below is my thinking about what COVID-19 brings:
|Fear||Delivery and shipping service is boosting -> which brings more job in this kind of service|
|The Risk of Death||Increase the demand and the need for essential production|
|Lost some income||Groceries still open because the human need to eat and drink|
|Lack of necessaries and essential items in the live||The chance for everyone to learn more about technologies -> for telework, study online from home|
|Deeply running out: – Hand sanitizer|
– Face mask
– Paper such as paper toilet, napkins, etc.
|Huge opportunities for all companies for the online business|
|General health (Ex: fly season in the USA from May to August yearly)||New opportunities for individual and small business to open the online business|
|Challenges for extroverts||Great opportunities for all cleaning services and de/anti-virus (resident, commercial services)|
|Think wiser, simpler and more creative|
|Cherish other’s lives because this COVID 19 has killed thousands of people in the worldwide and still counting|
|Temporary “vacation” with “Stay-at-home” order from USA President and from other countries officials/leaders.|
|While “stay-at-home” order, the chance to rest and strength body|
|Freelancer jobs opportunities and other kinds of online jobs|
|Great opportunities for investment in the stock market since this virus brings the crash-> Do you excited to buy the stock at a low price and resell with the higher price after one or 2 years from now? |
( In the past history, we – human – can control similar types virus of COVID 19 after 2 years.
Here is the link-> after clicking on the link, find the table outbreak. You will see the time frame)
As you can see, the opportunities are overwhelm the challenges. I believe the list opportunities are longer than it. I just list some with the short time thinking. I know I still miss some opportunities.
