  • The first European cases of Coronavirus are confirmed in France. How prepared would we be to deal with a global pandemic? Subscribe to our channel here: goo.gl/31Q53F

    Cases of Coronavirus have now been confirmed in Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, the US and France, after the virus began in China. In a globalised world, how might such an outbreak be contained?
    We’ve had similar scares before, with SARS in 2003, bird flu in 2006, swine flu in 2009, and even Ebola and Zika. What are the plans in place to act against a major threat?
    The World Health Organization has said it's too early to term the outbreak of coronavirus an international public health emergency.
    It also doesn't fulfil the criteria for a pandemic, which is a spread worldwide of a new disease.
    Ben Chu reports, and Katie speaks to Tom Inglesby, Director of the Center for Health Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Sarah Gilbert, Professor of Vaccinology at Oxford University.

    Bad journalism. "Coronavirus" is not a proper noun. The disease is COVID-19 and the virus SARScov2

    FYI coronavirus is not a proper name. It's a media product. It describes a family of viruses that media and public were too ignorant of and didnt realize the SARS and MERS viruses were coronaviruses too. Theres nothing that disguishes this name from related diseases, so call it the COVID-19 virus or by it's disease, COVID-19

    I Believe that in 1960s Some Countries Were Discovered Virus as a Weapon to Defeat Opposition in War and they Already Had AntiVirus to Stop Spreading CoronaVirus But They Wont Give.
    The Reality is !
    So Some One Brought Virus to #Wuhan China, But Currently Whole World is Suffering, Most Probably At The End of April They Will Make AntiVirus (That They Already Had) For CoronaVirus and Claims That We Save The World & Becames World Super Power Nation, Then They Will Sell The AntiVirus For CoronaVirus to All Countires and Ruled All Over The World

    Are you in need of face mask or alcohol based hand sanitizers to keep you constantly protected? Are you having troubles with the long queues at the stores in getting your required items? Do you want to get tested at the comfort of your home with a scientifically designed Russia test kit and get result in 18 hours? Do you also need the chloroquine and Zinc Treatment Combo to keep your immune system strong and fight off the virus? If yes, then I suggest you contact this professional hacker to save you from the present world crisis. Prevention is better than cure so please stay home and quarantine yourself. I’m so happy that I got help from hacker Gavin. He is a professional online carting and medical hacker and I’m glad that I contacted him for my desired needs and necessary pandemic essentials to keep myself safe without leaving the comfort of my home. He also shipped a scientifically designed Russia test kit to my home and I got tested myself without having to go to any hospital. It is a big risk going to the hospital to get tested as lots of positive patients are out there making it easier to contact the Covid-19 virus at the hospital. All I did was share my home address with hacker Gavin and I had all my orders and medical resources shipped to my door step conveniently. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” via Gmail (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later!

    I think they already have the cure but they will not release it, until they reach a massive numbers of infected people and spread worldwide. powerful people think this is the solution for climate change by decreasing the population by means of this virus is a biochemical weapon. this is a biological weapon and a massacre specially to elderly people.

    The said Corona virus outbreak is a potential threat to the survivability of the humans on the planet Earth... It is already an out-of-control situation... So we better be prepared for the Apocalypse! So that it doesn't hit us surprisingly, So that death doesn't greet us unexpectedly! It won't be wrong to say that THE END IS NEAR..
    It can happen to me, it can happen to you, it can happen to anyone.. Hence, we should now stop chasing materialistic things and spend the time you've been blessed with for yourselves, your family, your friends, your loved ones...!
    But don't be disappointed... Because whatever is happening around is exactly what we as humans deserve. It has been centuries since we all have been up to destruction of each and every kind of resource we've got - trees, water, land, animals, air,.....and many more.
    We kept on fighting wars within ourselves, taking lives of millions.
    All we as humans do, is KILL !
    And that's why we deserve this.
    WE MESS THINGS UP, THEY TEND TO MESS BACK..
    And that's all...
    Now it's time for us to pack up for HELL...(Because we are not eligible to go to heaven)..
    Now isn't the time to overthink... Just let nature take over... This is an END only from the HUMAN-perspective... Imagine the Earth without chaos, without mess, without humans.. And of course we're not all that life comprises. And hence, other forms of life would still thrive... They'll take over... And create a better version of the planet... It's like.. Nature needs a restart.
    As it always has been, evolution will still go on.. Maybe one day in future we will rise again as human beings but even better than we currently are!
    And if we do survive anyways, we hopefully be thankful to the nature for sparing our lives and preserve the same, in return of the favors.

    But for now,
    Let's brace ourselves cause... WE'RE IN THE ENDGAME NOW!

      Prajwal Chavan No, Your creating fear that is not needed. Especially in the younger kids who read you comment. Ofcourse you can express your opinion but start of with “I believe” or “in my opinion”. Your talking as if its a fact, The human race has achieved alot of positive things, which you will not mention just to make your point more valid. Your be-littleing your own kind. i personally believe this virus is not beyond human capibitly, we will find a cure just like we have before. Its just a matter time. I believe we are no where near the end, we are still going to thrive for a longtime.

    The Corona virus is a man made virus that was patented in 2015 . The news stories that read there are people dying is a complete lie . DO NOT BELIEVE THE NEWS ABOUT PEOPLE DYING FROM THE CORONA VIRUS . THEY HAVE AN AGENDA TO DEPOPULATE THE WORLD AND IT WILL BE BY PLACING FEAR INTO ALL THE PEOPLE THROUGH THE MEDIA . THEY WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE FAKE NEWS STORIES SAYING THE VIRUS IS SPREADING AND THOUSANDS ARE DYING . THEN THEY WILL DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY WHICH WILL BECOME MARSHAL LAW > AT THAT POINT THE UN MILITARY WILL BE IN EVERY TOWN FORCING YOU TO BE VACCINATED WITH A SAFE VACCINE THAT WILL SAVE YOU FROM THIS DEADLY VIRUS > THIS WILL ALL BE LIES > DO NOT TAKE THE VACCINE SHOT < IT CONTAINS THE VIRUS THAT WILL KILL YOU WITHIN 10 DAYS . FOR THOSE THAT REFUSE THE VACCINE WILL BE ROUNDED UP BY MILITARY AND TAKEN TO FEMA QUARANTINE LOCATIONS . THEY WILL TELL YOU ITS FOR THE SAFETY OF THE POPULATION WHEN IN FACT THEY WILL EXECUTE YOU AT THESE FACILITIES OR TRANSPORT YOU BY FEMA TRAINS TO FEMA DEATH CAMPS > THIS IS NOT A JOKE . THIS IS WHY THEY WANT TO TAKE EVERYONES GUNS BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY TO BE EXECUTED AND THEY WANT EVERYONE DISARMED SO THIS OPERATION WILL GO SMOOTHLY > BEFORE THE MILITARY ROLL INTO TOWN WHICH WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT > THEY WILL SHUT DOWN THE BORDERS AND AIRPORTS AND ALL CELL TOWERS AND LANDLINE COMMUNICATIONS > THERE WILL BE NO WAY FOR ANYONE TO ALERT OTHERS ANY FURTHER THAN YELLING DISTANCE > KEEP YOUR GUNS AND GET READY < THIS WILL NOT BE A DRILL > THEY HAVE BEEN PLANNING THIS FOR DECADES THERE ARE UN VEHICLES IN EVERY STATE READY FOR THE GO AHEAD TO ROUND YOU UP > THEY WILL START WITH AMERICA THEN MEXICO THEN CANADA > DO NOT LET THEM VACCINATE YOU OR TAKE YOU ANYWHERE > IF YOU SEE A UN VEHICLE OR SOLDIERS WITH BLUE HELMETS < SHOOT TO KILL THEY ARE THE ENEMY > PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW >AGENDA 21
