    Can WHO stop praising China effort to contain the virus AFTER they allow it to spread beyond control in the first place?

    @What ? They knew there was a problem in mid December. If they had taken steps to confine it immediately then it would have burnt out by now with minimal deaths. Instead they waited until January 23 to lock down Wuhan with 581 confirmed cases.and millions having left the city.

    @What ? They know during the start of December. A doctor had broke the silence and tried to inform the public in China of a new strain of virus and advised people to take precaution but the government sent people to detain him and charged the doctor for spreading panic. Now the doctor is dead due to the virus and every where in the world is screwed because of the idea information control

    The US wants to remain as the superpower of the world but do it in a legal way by introducing the original strain of the virus into several wild animals in wuhan, thereby spreading to other neighbouring asean countries.

    WHO advise no travel restrictions with China. Some countries restrict anyway and halt the spread of the virus in their country. Other countries take WHO advice and now have uncontrolled local transmission of the virus. I have said it all along, WHO wants this virus to spread globally.

    There might be some miniscule amount left over, but your body has already developed defenses for that specific virus and over time the remaining ones will be killed by your immune system.

    No, there are plenty of conditions to be met to even be classified as 'recovered'. Most recovered patients walk out with zero virus count of the COVID strain. There are a handful, who overcome critical condition, recover from their fever, and stabilise and feel all better, YET their saliva still shows presence of COVID. This is then not considered recovered, and such patients will continue to be quarantined and treated, as they are still infectious.

    This sudden increse (70 infected person in 3 days) began when 31th patient called as superinfector went to pseudo religous church (not even a chuch it is known as a "CULT"). Also she DENIED to get tested twice. This is the point that the public are so mad about. Sooooo selfish, thoughtless thing that no one can understand and this action that can kill others. Most of people think she should get punished for deny the test so cause the fatal harms to others. This cult spread virus all over the country since a thousand of people gather for the religion that day and they are from many different region of Korea. And usually they try to hide their religion so this makes more difficult to track down the infection.

    Watch out for South Korea. It has now overtaken Japan and Singapore as number 2 after China but not counting Diamond Princess. The day before, new cases more than doubled from 31 to 82. UPDATE: As of the past 24 hours, it looks it added another 22 cases. South Korea now has staked its claim as number 2 after China and excluding the Diamond Princess in number of infected cases, with 104 and most likely rising. Here's more bad news: Coronavirus patients can have similar "viral load" whether or not they show symptoms. This suggests the transmission potential of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patients. This article was published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

    Do you think a viral infection spreads faster in a highly populated and small city, by per sqkm density? Answer that yourself. And then ask which country has a higher exposure to foreign workers. All that coupled by the fact that SIngapore has been unable to find its patient zero, is also something that can unfortunately happen. What's your point though?? You can do better? If not shut up and pray.

    @Baygee Bob Lol dude, you need to keep up. 1. Masks cannot filter out 0.12 microns, they simply prevent the spread of saliva droplets. 2. You can be asymptomatic and still spread the virus 3. If you wear a mask and are not sick, you're just wasting masks for when you really need it. Supply is not infinite. You need to weigh your options. If you had a 100 bullets and a 100 enemies, are you going to aim each of your shot wisely, or spam it all and hope u kill 100?

    @kosa kata Understood but in context one time Singapore had 455 confirmed Zika cases in a small area while Brazil at the same time had 1,000+ confirmed. We tested sampled a area totally were there was infected extroplated we would have several tens of thousands of zika cases at least possibly so but yet no small head birth babies linked to zika. We tested testing regimes not equivalent apples and pineapples analogy. Applied methodology very different. Not PAP stooge have been detained not jailed by state for long duration in my estimation ultra vires.
