CORONAVIRUS: MOTHER NATURE THROWS A CURVEBALL AND SOME GLOBAL STATE HEADS, POLITICIANS AND HEALTHCARE MANAGERS CONTINUE STUPID, SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST DR JACOB GEORGE?
Since we last addressed this, there have been more cases emerging as the death toll rises!
The death toll rises to at least 80, and Wuhan may have 1,000 more cases.
The good mayor of epicenter Wuhan, Zhou Xianwang, has gone on record stating there could be about 1,000 more confirmed cases of the mysterious illness in the city!
So basically despite China’s President Xi Jinping moving decisively, to counter the spread of the increasingly deadly coronavirus by strategic actions not words and repeated press conferences, like in some countries administered by idiots, frightened by their own shadows, the death toll rises!
In my last blog upload, I had already gone on record stating that there are already indicators that this threat has gone global!
If you are one of those political and civil servant idiots, waiting for indicators from the World Health Organization (WHO) to give directives, before protecting the rights and interest of your own citizens, you all are bigger idiots and morons than previously thought!
The virus has spread to the United States, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Nepal, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and France at the time of writing.
Unlike others, I am paranoid that Mayor Zhou also said that five million people had left Wuhan, before travel out of the city was restricted, leaving nine million people still living there.
As of today, the official count of confirmed cases across China stood at 2,744.
I pray those who think they have some intelligence; will take note of what the head of China’s National Health Commission, Ma Xiaowei, warned on Sunday, that people who carried the disease but did not show flu symptoms could still infect others.
So to people who go about screaming at press conferences how great they are of surviving SARS, Nipah, H1N1, Ebola, Zika and MERS viruses, there is a major difference between the new virus and others!
Remember the implication, the impact, if an exposed person becomes contagious before they become sick, you can almost think of them as a secret spreader!
How are you going to mitigate this with your outdated SOPs and knowledge gaps, as a medical practitioner, perhaps, after becoming more a politician cum administrator, than a day in day out, medical doctor saving lives?
The current scenario experts say is – we have a situation, where those affected look healthy, nobody suspects they are sick, they are not staying home but on a flight to some distant country!
If that distant country has neither the conviction nor courage to close its borders for the lure of the tourist monies and where the left hand does not know what the right is doing – May the Almighty helps us all!
Not just from this virus, but, political and incompetent dinosaurs masquerading as political leaders, statesmen, health experts and health managers!
Only idiots, morons and the incompetent will wait until the situation reaches a critical stage of huge collateral damage, before acting!
