A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with the video. Especially “Our World in Data”, the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems – and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.

In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.

What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

  1. Phew. That might have been the fastest we ever made a video. Literally working day and night. A huge challenge in talking about Corona was that the science is ongoing. So we put in extra special care to have good sources for this video and will update them in the coming weeks and months. Check them out here:

    We could not have made this video without experts who took time in one of the busiest periods of their own careers. A huge thanks especially to Dr James Gurney and Dr Max Roser of Our World in Data for helping us make sure the video was as accurate as it could be in a situation that is changing daily.

    Also a big shoutout to – the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems – and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic. Working together with them over the years has been a delight.

    Ok. We are very tired and are going to take a nap now. Stay healthy!

  2. What absolutely makes not sense is for the whole Humanity to QUARANTINE FOR 2 YEARS (hopefully) until the vaccine is ready. Governments need to understand that confinement will be somehow successful in preventing the number of spreads, but a huge cost, so high that the economy can´t keep up with it for as much as 2 years. This virus spreads so easily that once the contagion curve slows down (or overcomes the famous "peak" everyone's talking about), the social distancing measures WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO WITHDRAW. 1 infected person is enough for the whole world to be infected again once the quarantine is releived. The solution?

    DIFFERENTIAL CONFINEMENT. This virus is nothing but a flu, except for the elderly (>60 aprox.) and people with previous conditions. They have a much higher fatal risk and the associated need of using the HealthCare systems (which are eventually collapsing worldwide). What if we implemented COMPULSORY confinement ONLY for the elderly, people with previous conditions and the responsibles for taking care of them (let's say, workers in nursing homes and close relatives living with high risk population)?

    First, we will take out of the equation this high risk population, the number of deaths will reduce a 95% (only 5% of the deaths produced by COVID-19 are under 60 and most of them rather because of the saturation of the HealthCare system than the disease itself).

    Second, I repeat, CORONAVIRUS IS NOTHING BUT A FLU FOR THE REST OF THE PEOPLE. Taking out of the equation the high risk population (that need the HealthCare system mostly), if the virus spreads among the rest of the population, it will take nothing but Paracetamol and resting for a week at home to overcome it. Moreover, the low share of people that will need the HealthCare system, will be able to do so without the current saturation (in Spain where I am from, doctors are currently deciding who to save due to capacity constraints). Without the risk population exposed, the people in need for HealthCare line will fall again below the national Sanitary limit, receiving adequate treatment and cutting drastically the number of deaths, even among younger population.

    Finally, it will allow for the economy to resume normally (as most of the active workforce worldwide is below 60) and the threat of massive layoffs will disappear. Unemployment grants will be saved and the budget for clinical research will be much higher. In addition, it will allow for a natural immunization of the whole population. As more and more healthy people overcome the disease, higher shares of the population are immunized and thus, the ways of spread of the virus are cut with the minimal impact to the economy.

    There's no doubt that the only solution to this pandemic is the vaccine. What I propose is a matter of impact reduction, as the aftermath can be monstruous following the current strategy.


  3. What a coincidence, pandemic that spread fear among us until now have same story line in CONTAGION movie that released in year 2011. The way it spread also same,which is by fomites and infected person will dies just in two days because make a contact with the person, object or material that carry the virus. However, the novel virus was nidentified as MEV-1 in that film.

  4. Any anti vaxxers want to chime in now after you see what happens when there is a highly contagious and deadly disease that there is no vaccines for ? ?
