This week there was the first reported case of the 'SARS-like' corona virus in the UK supposedly contracted by a man whilst in the Middle East. Full story here - bbc.co.uk/news/health
Corona viruses are a large family of viruses that includes viruses that may cause a range of illnesses in humans, from the common cold to SARS. Viruses of this family also cause a number of animal diseases.
So there are two things to remember boys and girls. Winter is coming, and we live in the most populated country in the world, with one of the lowest hygiene levels.
This puppy is about a billionth of our size, and uses our cells to replicate itself. Most commonly spread by droplets from coughing or sneezing (been on the bus/street/supermarket, hell, anywhere lately?) and affects the respiratory system. And as we all know, breathing is kind of important so please - put your fucking hand/tissue over your mouth if you feel the need to cough, sneeze or gag! Wear a mask, stop spitting everywhere! Stay indoors at the first sign of any Flu-like symptoms; fever, headache, sneezing, coughing. Take a shower/wash your hands and generally stop being dirty bastards.
It is well known that in the province of GD people value saving money over health FIRST. Until of course they actually get sick. Prevention does not exist here 'cos basically nobody thinks/cares about tomorrow, others, consequences, preventative measures, considerations or social responsibilities. STOP DOING THIS!
THINK! LOGIC! REASON! Start acting responsibly by taking responsibility for yourselves AND others. Namely those who see, must act upon others irresponsibility (kicking them off/out of the bus/street/supermarket, hell, anywhere is one of my favourites.)
Regardless of whatever Beijing says there is no Emergency Action Plan in China (apart from the one they talk about) FEMA or CDC or anything like, as we have seen time and again any action always comes too little, too late. With so many people packed in such close proximity like sardines in Southern China, with the conditions and high levels of apathy/ignorance and zero basic levels of care and hygeine should any viral outbreak occur it would be devastating beyond imagination. Helicopter to 'anywhere but here' on standby me thinks.
Governmental duty/responsibility: Awareness! Simple as, but doesn't exist. Nothing in schools, society, parental guidance, the media and so on that even remotely educates and informs people of their duty as citizens besides F.E. (Fuck Everybody) THIS MUST END! Sorry China, but somebody needs to say it, and you need to do it.
China, educate your people! Please!
