There is no chemical that can kill the Coronavirus-19 at the moment. The CDC only has recommended products that is about it.

Have a lot of the family working in various health systems and at least one is freaking out about this . Damn , like trying to talk someone off a ledge . Sent the article from MarketWatch and that helped some . Hope some cleaners on here Google it and read it . IDK , humans are the most irrational of the mammals on Earth . Seems like every three to five years they have to freak out about something ............ so why not this ??!!
It’s serious, but man , people are getting a little far gone .

I like how John Oliver put it. If you're thinking about drinking bleach to protect yourself from coronavirus, you're probably over reacting, but if you're licking hand rails on a New York subway train, you're not concerned enough. You should be somewhere in the middle.

Well, my wife works at the hospital and strangely she and I both started feeling sick yesterday.

We never get sick, especially at the same time.

If it is Corona so far it's like a very mild flu.

Hubby and I had the same experience. I had a bad respiratory infection two weekends ago, 48 hours of intense ick followed by two weeks of snuffles and drainage. Hubby (who works in health care) just had same thing last week. We figured it was just seasonal flu. Both of us kept to ourselves and muffled our sneezes. And both of us are now just fine. We joked (sorta) to each other last night that maybe, just maybe, that's what we had.

My degrees at NCSU were Microbiology and English. Two things that don't seem to have much in common at first glance... until you realize that both of them are the study of things that seem to exist for the sole purpose of breaking the rules.

Viruses in particular are incredible, glorious, terrifyingly efficient constructs. Science still can't quite determine whether or not to classify them as living things, because they lack several of the qualities that we use to determine whether or not something classifies as a "living thing" or a "life form".

Viruses do not need to metabolise; they require no energy and produce no ATP. They have no "birth", "death", or "growth" stages. They are far more similar to seeds (which are inert until they land in an environment conducive to growth) than they are to any living thing.

And yet, the instant a virus touches a cell, it explodes into being.

Complex interactions begin at lightning speed, and suddenly this inert, seemingly dead mechanism roars into action and turns the cell into a reproductive factory. The viral DNA (or RNA) unfolds like an unzipped zipper, and begins re-writing the genes of the host cell.

And in the process, some of the copies are imperfect - a sequence gets dropped, or exchanged for another sequence out of order - and the viruses mutates... which is a phenomenon that we ONLY see in life forms.

If one looks at the most current maps of the COVID-19 outbreak, one sees a pattern quickly emerging that is breathtaking in its efficiency.

This microscopic organism with no motility (no means of propelling itself; no feet, no wings, not even a flagellum), which is so simple in comparison to us that it has only 30,000 base pairs in its entire gene sequence (humans have over 3 BILLION), is swiftly using our bodies to establish itself in every major port area around the globe.

It has a foothold on the shores of every continent that carries a stable human population. And it didn't need to lift a finger (which it doesn't have anyway) to do so.

I cannot help but be fascinated by these things. I admire them, I respect them, but I am not afraid of them. They are designed flawlessly, they do what Nature has created them to do with ruthless efficiency, and they have no emotions to get in the way of their function. We think of them as a destructive force, but the more we discover about them the more we realize that our relationship with them is symbiotic... in other words, we could not survive without them.

There's frankly a LOT we could learn from them.

Yes, this virus will impact our elderly, our young, and our ill more than it will the healthy and the strong.

As human beings, we are unique in our insistence in caring for those who cannot care for themselves. What we call "natural selection" in animals, we refuse to accept for ourselves because we see ourselves as 'more evolved than that'.

As a result, we have set up hospitals and assisted living facilities - artificial environments FULL of the sick, the wounded, and the compromised - in the hopes of healing those who would otherwise die... and in the process, we have given this virus an ideal playground upon which to unleash its machinery.
Just like " Influence of the stars" virus but we didn't develop enough antibodies to fight it. I don't have a degree in microbiology, but your words resonate in my mind with enormous strength. You've mentioned children, ill and elderly are at highest risk, but there were no fatalities among group 0- 10 years of age, right? Did I misread some articles?
I came with bad case of influenza last year (April) I thought it was a weird timing for virus. I got it exactly 3 day after my wife showed symptoms, heavy cough, nausea, mild fever , almost normal hovering slightly under 100°, but absolutely no appetite ( I dropped 10 lbs on one week) The reason I'm describing this in details is that this was some
" quality" strain of virus. The last time I had virus that bad was 30 years ago and this time wife didn't get sick. She was my guardian angel and nurse at the same time. We've tried to get 104, 105° fever down with cold compresses and home remedies like attaching slices of lemon to the bottom kf the feet and palms. In my mind, all that was helpful.
So next time I'm due to catch any type of virus, I'm gonna be 90.....

People here are finally taking it seriously now... of course after it spread like wildfire because of their negligence

All schools are closed until April 27th. The # of cases is increase drastically per day.

We have tons of test kits now but our medical personnel don't have enough PPE to be able to test.

Lol the big stores bj's Costco's and sams were the worst hit. I went to giant and shelves were empty. But they had pallets in aisles to restock. These people were taking the cases off the pallets. Stock boys just walked away like why bother shelving it. One guy walked into homedepot and bought a skid of water bottles. Lmao like pa is a desert or something. Water is something we will never run out of.
Thankfully they did finally buy all the soap. Thats a good sign. What im pissed about is they took all the bananas and all the meat. All of it.
And there are vinyl gloves and used wipes in all the carts and all over the parking lots now. So much for "saving the planet"
