He said that they really messed up. Moreover, he said that for some reason, even though the biggest percentage of the WHO is financed by the US, somehow, they are a lot closer to China. At the same time, he pointed out that the borders between China and the US were closed by luck at the beginning of the pandemic. He asked himself why the WHO had such bad advice at the beginning of the pandemic.

On a daily briefing about the global coronavirus pandemic, he said that the US will reconsider the further financing of the WHO. He didn’t say that they are going to stop the financing, but they will reconsider it as least. The United States is the biggest financier to the World Health Organization. Since the beginning of 2020, the US financed that organization with $57,8 million. in the second place, we have China with $28,7 million.

Besides being dangerous for world health, with more than a million people infected, this pandemic also has a huge influence on the global economy, and many experts are warning us how this can be another economic crisis that will hit all world.

The economies of most countries have stopped, and they are trying to figure out what measures would help the economy and society after the pandemic ends. According to some announced measures and active measures, we can see that the best control over this crisis can be seen in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Luxembourg, where they are fighting with a virus, but they also prepared a special set of measures that will save their economies when the quarantine days are over.

The United States also came up with the idea to help their economy, and assign special funds for small businesses, families, and children. They are hoping that a good financial injection into every industrial sector would prevent the fall down of the entire economy.

Another country that seems like it gained control over the crisis is China when this pandemic started in the first place. They were fighting with the COVID-19 for a long time, and there are first clues that the situation is calming down.

Some countries were prepared for the outbreak, like Russia, or Finland, where we can the situation is under control, and there are no too many new people diseased. Also, Singapore is one of the countries with the smallest death rates, with only three victims from a total of around 900 infected.

South Korea is also controlling the situation, especially because of its rapid measures and responsible citizens. Furthermore, since Hong Kong already had experience with some similar outbreaks in recent history, they are dealing well and their medical centers were well prepared since the beginning.

Trump Refuses to Listen to Advice, Keep Shaking Hands and Attending Meetings

According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Donald Trump refuses to listen to his advice. Trump keeps shaking hands with people, going to meetings, and everything has to be repeated four or five times before he gets it.

White Houses’ top epidemiologist has been having a hard time trying to get Trump to understand just how serious the situation is. His reaction during one of the media briefings, when he facepalmed, has become a meme.

‘But I can’t jump in front of the microphone and push him down. OK, he said it. Let’s try and get it corrected for the next time.’

He also mentioned that Trump made some mistakes during his speeches, specifically when he accused China of not informing the world two or three months earlier, saying that it would be September.

‘The way it happened is that after he made that statement suggesting China could have revealed the discovery of a new coronavirus three to four months earlier], I told the appropriate people, it doesn’t comport, because two or three months earlier would have been September,’ Fauci said.

Fauci seems to be developing his own system of how to correct the President. “I don’t want to act like a tough guy, like I stood up to the president,” he said. “I just want to get the facts out. And instead of saying, ‘You’re wrong,’ all you need to do is continually talk about what the data are and what the evidence is.”

According to our source, who was in communication with Chinese doctors who worked on testing and preventing the Coronavirus from spreading, they managed to defeat this serious virus in 29 days. The methodology was pretty simple, the key thing for defeating COVID-19 is strong and strict isolation. Also, our source says that doctors told him that the crucial element in spreading this disease was the communication and touching within the families.

So, they’ve decided to maintain strict isolation even within the families. Naturally, this is not the only element that affected the spreading of this virus. The next big thing they did was the isolation of specialized hospitals for COVID-19 patients only. Last but not least, the third element was obtaining the necessary equipment.

Chinese doctors even gave an example of their successful methodology. In the province of Hainan, which has a population of 9.2 million people, they did exactly that and they prevented the virus from spreading further than it was already done. Probably the most important thing that we’ve heard is that the epidemy begins declining after 60%-70% becomes infected.

The conclusion is that the behavior of this virus is unpredictable. There were cases when some people were tested 6 times in a row, and only the sixth test turned out positive. No doubt, this will give some serious headaches to doctors around the world. Nevertheless, the first step has been made, we have some new knowledge that could turn out to be crucial in the prevention of this dangerous virus.

In The Wake Of Coronavirus Spread Here Are The Safest Countries So Far

155 countries and territories around the world have reported a total of over 150,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 which originated from China. Some nations closed their borders, and travel bans are more and more common. However, there are some coutries which seem to be the safest as the spread of virus continues.

When it comes to Eupore, the spread of coronavirus is quick, which led to the World Health Organization declaring the continent the epicentre of the pandemic.

A risk assessment map on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website shows which countries travellers should avoid, and which are more safe. Four levels of risk include no reported risk level, limited community spread, sustained community spread, and widespread sustained spread.

The last risk level includes all the countries whose flights have been banned to and from US, by President Donald Trump, and those are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican City. Iran and China are also on the list. The World Health Organization declared that China is no longer the epicentre of coronavirus, and the title has been given to Europe.

People around the world have been advised to avoid nonessential travel, especially when to comes to the countries which have been in the widespread sustained spread group. Another country that has been added to that group is South Korea, and even though there are no travel restrictions towards the country, it is recommended that you avoid nonessential travel.

Since COVID-19 can easily and quickly cross borders, there is no country on the map which carries no risk of it. It is expected that more countries will be added to the list. Denmark temporarily close its borders to tourists in order to contain the spread of the virus.

„Right now, Europe and the US are practically in lockdown. Cross-border travel will be minimised. We are currently focusing on staycations, within-country travel, domestic travel will recover from this crisis first,“ Mark Wong, an executive at Small Luxury Hotels of the World, told CNB.

He added: „Road trips – the drive market – will be this summer’s trend. Travellers will be more comfortable hopping into their own cars or rental vehicles than commuting in mass transportation.“

How Russia Avoided The Coronavirus Epidemic

/

The fact that there have been only 59 cases of coronavirus infections reported in Russia so far, makes West’s professional and laic circles wonder how it is possible for such a big country to achieve that.

The data on the almost minor number of people infected with coronavirus in Russia, which borders with China, seems unusual, and many observers have different theories about it.

Source:themoscowtimes.com

By 5th March, Russia had only four confirmed cases, and one of those was in Moscow, Europe’s largest city after Istanbul.

France and Germany have had more than 2,000 infected, and in Italy, the number goes up to 12,000. Until the coronavirus outbreak, similar number of passengers from China was flown to Russia, just like it was to those three European countries.

Russian independent portal Medusa announced that Russia closed its borders fast enough, so that almost no one infected could enter. Beijing-Moscow direct rail lines were cut off, and Russia-China land border was closed for cars and pedestrians. However, at that time, 9,923 cases were registered worldwide, so there was an opportunity for the virus to enter Russia before those measures.

Some believe that the luck had a lot to do with it. At first, Russia was lucky enough, and then the border controls did their job. However, Russia borders with another country which is at the top of the infected list, and that is Iran. Another thing is that Russia hasn’t imposed travel restrictions when it comes to Italy and South Korea.

Russian consumer protection agency, Rospotrebnadzor, stated that since 31st January, 382,155 passengers from China were examined and 130 had symptoms of the common flu and other infections, but none of them was positive for the coronavirus.

On the other hand, there were claims that Russia is not using the best available virus test. There are two types of test that can detect a corona virus: tomography, which provides a description of clinical symptoms such as pneumonia, and a laboratory test to determine if the genetic material of the virus is present in a patient’s sample. The test used in Russia is a diagnostic test manufactured by Vektor, which uses PCR, a polymerase chain reaction. Media reports that that test is valid too.

Another theory is that the number of infected is underestimated.

Russia is rapidly working on building a hospital, like the one in China, where only the coronavirus infected patients will be placed. Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow, said that the hospital will be build 1,287 kilometers southwest of the Kremlin, and it will be located in the Vornovoska area. Sobyanin guaranteeed that the construction of the hospital won’t endanger the local population. He also asked everyone to understand his decision, and explained the reason for choosing that location for the hospital. In that district there aren’t major residential buildings, and the distance between some local houses and the hospital is twice as high as recommended for the sanitary zone. The major also explained that anyone who has had contact with the infected should be hospitalized.

Moscow Directorate for Policy and Urbanism has confirmed the construction of the initiated project, but so far there are no information about the capacity of patients the hospital will be able to receive. It took China seven days to build the hospital which was able to accomodate 1.000 patients.

Looking for Indian employees would also not be a problem as this country boasts of a labor force consisting of over half a billion people, most of which are under 30 years of age, the prime age for employability.
