    Default Covid-19 - Self Isolate

    This Self Isolate thing sounds like the biggest load of bulls.

    So imagine a family gets off a flight, after being overseas for 2 weeks. They get told to go home and self isolate.

    OK they say, they get home to a house with no fresh food in it, so suddenly someone has to go shopping, or they return to a house with other residents who continue to go to work, school, shops, malls, cinemas.

    And how do they get home in the first place? Hop in a Taxi / Bus / Train and share their bugs with other unsuspecting people.

    It's like expecting to hold a litre of water in a sieve.

    The entire drama is a load of BS.

    Because there's 2 people in my life who stand about a 15% chance of being killed by it, and just coz people recover and life goes on for them doesn't mean their bodies aren't damaged by the experience... liver damage, kidney damage, lung scarring, overloaded cardio vascular system. For some folk it'll be far worse than any flu they've ever experienced, and if the emergency care facilities are full when you need them... well that's just tough. Go home and fear for your life... and maybe die.

    Well we are all going to die one day anyhow. Maybe we should get Jacinda to hug them better, she is really good at hugs.

    Wouldn't want to mix up "self isolate" with "self immolate"

    COVID-19 and the (regular) Flu

    Both cause fever, cough, body aches, fatigue; sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.
    Can be mild or severe, even fatal in rare cases.
    Can result in pneumonia.

    Both can be spread from person to person through droplets in the air from an infected person coughing, sneezing or talking.
    Flu can be spread by an infected person for several days before their symptoms appear, and COVID-19 is believed to be spread in the same manner, but we don’t yet know for sure.

    Neither virus is treatable with antibiotics, which only work on bacterial infections.
    Both may be treated by addressing symptoms, such as reducing fever. Severe cases may require hospitalization and support such as mechanical ventilation.

    Both may be prevented by frequent, thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected.

    COVID-19: Caused by one virus, the novel 2019 coronavirus, now called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, or SARS-CoV-2.

    Flu: Caused by any of several different types and strains of influenza viruses.


    COVID-19: Approximately 82,555 cases worldwide as of Feb. 27, 2020.
    Flu: Estimated 1 billion cases worldwide.

    COVID-19: Approximately 2,810 deaths reported worldwide as of Feb. 27, 2020.
    Flu: 291,000 to 646,000 deaths worldwide.
