COVID-19 - Breaking News [OFFICIAL THREAD]


Message added by Hameedeh

Information changes rapidly and some news reports can be unreliable. We appreciate participation during this pandemic, but some replies can be removed if inaccurate. This thread is ONLY for breaking news.

I'm asking because this is taking place in Asia, where the plague is said to ravage. It's said that the plague will not be taken as seriously as it should, so it will basically demolish Asia. At this point, we aren't really afraid of plagues anymore. After Ebola, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Mad Cow Disease, Zika, we're just not scared anymore. We "know" that this Corona Virus won't reach us, that it will be resolved in a year MAX, that only a couple hundred will perish from it. It's this arrogance that will let the White Death destroy 1/3 of humanity. Though it's possible that Asia will overcome this plague, then in their complacency, fall to the next one. 

Would love to hear your thoughts

I can’t believe no one talked about it, it’s spreading so fast. From China, to France and USA. Please guys take care, that virus is deadly.

From 1 to 41 deaths in three days --as l followed the reports. l wonder what the incubation period is and how the two relate to virulence.

I hope they announce it as soon as possible. And I hope they create a treatment for it as soon as possible.

Salam,

I haven't seen anyone make a thread about this, so I decided to raise its awareness. Recently there has been a coronovirus outbreak that has spread from China, with 41 dead and 2,847 cases. The spread has accelerated even to Australia, with currently 3 cases in NSW and 1 case in Victoria.

May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us from all diseases.

Wikipedia: The Wuhan strain has been identified as a new strain of Betacoronavirus from group 2B with a ~70% genetic similarity to the SARS-CoV.

Now the SARS CoV, or severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, is a type of coronavirus that was first reported in Asia in February, 2003. Over the following months, the illness spread to more than two dozen countries, sickening 8,098 people worldwide, killing 774.

However, 2019-nCoV is a different strain than the SARS CoV, so it is still unknown what the effects will be long term.

1800EST Saturday,25Jan20  PBS News Hour -Weekend

President Xi Jinping announces a "grave situation" of "accelerating spread".

In the PRC, 42 dead, 1200 confirmed infected

Lunar celebrations cancelled

48 Million people in 15 cities on  lock down.

Hong Kong has ordered schools and other facilities closed until mid-February.

Has spread to a known 10 countries.

12 cases inside the US

So  far, outside of China there has been no human-to-human transmission.

Salam, I've read that there was sign of Qiyamah that was believed to have happened  is the death of many which is know as the plague. What if we were mistaken and the  Coronavirus disease is what is the sign. Also I've read that a sign that will happen in the future is that there will be far less men in the world than women. What if this disease will cause this sign to occur. I would like to hear your thoughts on this and if I have insulted or angered anyone my bad.

Well considering the fact that we are here in the end of times and quite a lot has happened since the beginning of 2020, yeah we should be fearful.

if it were a plague then it would have spread rapidly? I mean so far there’s only been a few cases here in Australia

 

Only Allah knows. I never heard of this, but it does sound scary. May Allah protect us all.

So the MERS is "middle eastern respiratory syndrome" It can also be written as MERS-CoV "middle eastern respiratory syndrome coronavirus".

 

MERS CoV and 2019-nCoV belong to a family of viruses called Coronaviruses. 

 

SARS-CoV & 2019-nCoV & MERS-CoV all have a similar taxonomy (MERS-CoV is slightly different however):

For SARS-CoV:

Coronaviridae > Betacoronavirus >  Sarbecovirus > SARS-CoV 

For 2019-nCoV:

Coronaviridae > Betacoronavirus >  Sarbecovirus > 2019-nCoV

For MERS-CoV

Coronaviridae > Betacoronavirus >  Merbecovirus > MERS-CoV 

 

SARS-CoV & 2019-nCoV belong to the sub genus Sarbecovirus however MERS-CoV belongs to the sub genus Merbecovirus. 

So yes they are similar but the SARS-CoV is much more similar...

Well there's been many plauge and many deaths from pandemics in the past 2 decades... 

Remember the ebola virus? Everyone got really panicked and then overtime forgot about it, as if it never existed in the first place...

Salam it's a narration about death by war & plague before reappearance of Imam Mahdi (aj) but I didn't find anything about number of remaining  women & men but there is other narrations that are saying two third of humans will die that one third will be from war & one third from plague or nine from ten of humans will die before reappearance

http://www.shabestan.ir/detail/News/404609

Ali ibn Muhammad oddi from his father and his father from Imam Ali (as): In front of the Qaim, red death and white death will appear and grasshoppers will invade in time and out of time without stop in color red such as  blood , but red death means sword and white death means plague.

بحار الانوار، ج52، ص 113

بین یدی القائم موت احمر و موت ابیض و جراد فی حینه و جراد فی غیر حینه احمر کالوان الدّم فامّا الموت الاحمر فالسّیف و امّا الموت الابیض فالطاعون

نعم، قتل فظیع و موت سریع و طاعون شنیع

The meaning of the narrative is this: Yes, there are signs for the emergence of the Qaim, including the atrocious and global inhumane slaughter and the rapid and sequential deaths and outbreaks of the plague.

Yep, and has anyone else noticed the last "outbreak" of this type [Zika] happened just before the last Olympic games. I agree with above that there is a chance it was created and released by CIA as part of a pressure campaign against China to go along with their current shenanigans in Hong Kong. 

These viruses are hyped up by the media so is that pharmaceutical companies can make billions from selling vaccines and cures.

There were reports last week of the virus originating in an 'illegal' seafood market in Wuhang. Now the interesting part is that it's claimed the virus has 'jumped' between bats and snakes and then onto humans. Images and videos of Bat soup were also circulated in support this theory.

Last night, EST, l read on France24 that a French doctors is saying this 2019-nCoV is not as "bad" as SARS, but the article did not explain why. Offhand, l guess it is too early to say such a thing, lMHO.

Ali express is a very popular online retail service based in China. They ship goods all over the world. Many of the same sellers sell on Amazon too. The normal delivery takes days to weeks but with express delivery the virus could reach the person. Though chances of happening this are few but why take the reason risk, especially when it's a virus which can mutate and change its virulence.

@3wliya_maryam  China is a place plagued by famine and the potential for famine. As l remember, the last thing they will eat is a cat --after treebark and clay.

I wouldnt be surprised if they turned their faeces into a soup

Go easy on faeces:

Why a faecal transplant could save your life

It is pretty much what you are imagining - part of a faecal stool is taken from one person and given to another.

The purpose is to introduce new beneficial microbes to the receiving patient's digestive system.

And it can be life-saving.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-43815369

The transplant does not involved eating it though.

This is unnecessary.

But thinking of disease and famine, my father had this "too many rabbits" model of a modern plague.

lf there are too many rabbits in an area, sooner or later a disease will emerge that will kill-off most rabbits. He didn't see any different potential with humans.

If it weren’t for those vaccines that you’re so anti about, we would’ve all been dead ages ago. As far as I know that some vaccinations may have done some harm to others, it sure has done a lot of good to prevent further outbreaks

it sure has. But time is different now, the agenda different too.
