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?

    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: sites.google.com/view/sourcescorona 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 ourworldindata.org/ - 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!

    You are not taking into consideration the amount of people that recover without ventilators, or any type of medication. I think that specifically the USA is Handling it this all wrong. We should quarantine the old and the ones with health problems, and let the healthy people get it, spread it around and let it die. All flattening the curve does is just carry it out longer wrecking the economy. But that’s just my opinion.

    Whatever happens, China must shut down their wet markets and allow for international inspections. The wet markets should be treated the same as bio weapons factories. In the end this will have done as much damage as any biological weapon would have.

    Corona is like putting his hands in a bucket filled with black robe And he entered his home He began to touch the things we all touched at home An hour after he sits at home, you will find that black in his hands smudges a lot of things with this rash So Corona When a person with this virus touches things in the daylight hours, it touches hundreds of things You can also touch it Without counting or feeling the size of the number If you count the things you touch in your day I would like to know that you are in danger without feeling its extent God bless you People are surprised where the infection comes from Take precautions But there is an infection This is my brothers No one can be careful about touching their nose, eyes and mouth, and sitting at home They wash their hands, but then what? After the victim touches a bag of bread, potato bags, baby food, cans, and other things that you use in your home Then I came to take it This is the problem, my friend Corona is only a fingerprint Everywhere The only solution, after sticking to the house, is that the person who brings things from the market to the home should wash the boxes and replace the bags with caution. This is after the father and mother use these precautions before using them at home and when they enter the house for the first time Children are not allowed to come to you before washing your hands, nose, and face, and replacing your clothes She tells me this a lot I tell you how to do it How do you want to take what I say take The important thing is that you work with her and do not throw her behind your back You have adults and children They are just a few things you do well and you will be fine, God willing, and alert all interest in the paper currency (A man came to the Prophet’s Mosque and left his camel without tying it up, and one of the companions told him: “So tie him.” He told him that I trust God and the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace. He said to him and grant him peace. Here in Europe and in Denmark in particular, it was suggested that paper currency be canceled and the card used because the currency was the cause of transmission of the disease, God forbid I seek refuge in Allah from the word I when I go to the market and buy in paper currency. I put the coin in a small bag and wear gloves (gloves). And when I return home, I isolate the bag somewhere Second time purchase (and so on) Even the currency beware Other than that it is not prevention and quarantine Corona should handle it this way Corona fingerprint knows how to deal with it May Allah protect us and you and Muslims from leprosy, madness, leprosy, and etiquette Amen, Lord of the Worlds.

    PROLOGUE: (READ WITH A VOICE OF A NARRATOR IN A MOVIE) FOR MANY YEARS THE BATS HAVE HIDDEN THEIRSELVES IN THE CAVE, HIDING BECAUSE OF FEAR, GOING OUT AT NIGHT WHEN PEOPLE ARE ASLEEP, THEY EVEN HAVE TO SLEEP UPSIDE DOWN AT THE TOP WHERE NO ONE CAN REACH THEM. THEY HAVE DISTANCED THEIR SELVES FROM HUMANS BUT BEING AN IDIOT KNOWS NO BOUNDS. THE HUMANS STILL FOUND A WAY TO CAPTURE THEM. THEY SLAUGHTERED THEM ONE BY ONE, DEFENSELESS THE BATS THOUGHT OF A WAY TO REVOLT AND FIGHT AGAINST HUMANS. SO THEY CREATED A VIRUS AND SACRIFICED THEIRSELVES FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR RACE. SIMILAR TO A SUICIDE BOMBER THIS BAT HARBORED ONE OF THE DEADLIEST VIRUS EVER KNOWN TO MANKIND. THIS BAT FLEW FOR MONTHS ALL THE WAY TO CHINA BECAUSE THE BAT KNOWS CHINESE PEOPLE LOVES THEIR BAT SOUP. IN NO AVAIL THEY IMMEDIATELY SLAUGHTERED THE BAT ON SITE AND MADE IT THEIR CUISINE. WHAT THEY DO KNOW NOW IS THIS BAT IS THEIR SAVIOUR, LIKE JESUS CHRIST WHO GAVE AWAY HIS LIFE TO SAVE ITS PEOPLE. THE BAT BECAME SUCCESSFUL HE SPREAD THE VIRUS NOT ONLY IN CHINA BUT ALMOST ALL OVER THE WORLD. BECAUSE OF THIS HEROIC SACRIFICE OF THE BAT. THE PEOPLE WOULD NO LONGER EAT BATS ANYMORE BECAUSE OF THE FEAR THE VIRUS CAUSED. THIS BAT IS A HERO, HE SAVED COUNTLESS LIVES OF HIS RACE. BUT HOLD YOUR HORSES, CATS AND DOGS BECAUSE LIKE WHAT I SAID BEING AN IDIOT KNOWS NO BOUND. SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE AN IDIOT WOULD STILL EAT BATS FOR DINNER BUT THIS TIME THIS BAT BOUGHT HIS RACE ENOUGH TIME TO BE STRONGER SO THEY CAN DEFEND THEMSELVES ONCE ALL OF THIS IS ALL OVER. HUMANS HAVE BEEN GREEDY, THEY ENJOYED LIVING THEIR FOOLISH LIVES UNTIL THE BAT NATION ATTACKED AND SHATTERED THEIR WAY OF LIVING. YOU MAY BE SAD BECAUSE OF COUNTLESS HUMANS WITH FAMILIES HAVE PERISHED BUT ALL THIS TIME THE BATS WERE EXPERIENCING THE SAME THING. BATS HAVE LIVES AND FAMILIES TOO BUT HUMANS DID NOT CARE. THEY JUST TURNED THE SITUATION AROUND. NOW THE BATS NO LONGER HIDE, THEY FLY AND ENJOY THE WORLD THEMSELVES WHILE THE HUMANS ARE NOW IN HIDING, TREMBLING IN FEAR. THE HERO BAT WHO SACRIFICED HIMSELF TURNED THE SITUATION UPSIDE DOWN. BATS IN THE OPEN, HUMANS IN HIDING. WHAT IS THE LESSON? DO NOT BOTHER PEOPLE AND ANIMALS WHO ARE QUIET AND ARE DISTANCING THEIRSELVES FROM THE WORLD BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW BAD THEIR ANGER COULD GET UNTIL YOU MESS WITH THEM.
