New Coronavirus Infects Pneumonia
- Jan 27, 2020-
The Chinese government has been outstanding in dealing with the virus. Unless you are a Santa Claus in myth, you cannot do what the Chinese government has provided so far.
During the 2014 West African Ebola virus epidemic, the CDC rushed to find the virus. It took them 2 months from obtaining the first patient sample to identifying the complete genomic sequence, and then another 6 weeks to publish it. This is an emergency, and the fatality rate of one of these viruses is 90%. Swine flu in the U.S. eventually infected 55 million Americans and killed 11,000 people in 2009. The first case began to appear in late March. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified it on April 17th until 5🈷️ Only diagnostic methods. That's 250 people working more than 100 hours a week! Or CDC, the world's best infectious disease research institution, with an annual budget of $ 11 billion and 11,000 employees! And what about coronavirus in China? It took 1 week from the first patient sample to the completion of virus identification and sequencing. Immediately published / saved in genomic libraries for people around the world. Then, following this sequence, China Biotech jumped in and performed a verification test within a week. This is also unprecedented. Now, scientists in this field are working hard "who are these guys and how do they do it!" The first patient in Wuhan was admitted in mid-December. Subsequent genetic analysis found the only single-source mutation, which means that public health surveillance in China is very good and most likely caught the first patient. It's impressive. We haven't found the first Ebola patient or swine flu yet. In both cases it's just the best guess. So far, the Chinese government has allocated 130 million US dollars to Wuhan. Hundreds of medical teams, thousands of doctors and nurses with first-class infectious disease experts have rushed to Wuhan, and 30 million people have been locked in the city's quarantine. Not to mention they are building a hospital dedicated to treating this single virus. What did you provide? More money, better medical services, or superior scientific expertise? Take a look. People who fall into the river often know the difference between someone who jumps into the water, swims hard at them and tries to pull them up, and those who stay on the shore and want to see them die and verify their point of view ...
