Current situation during quarantine 😂
The COVID-19 pandemic could have killed 40 million deaths by the end of 2020 in the absence of any preventative measures, according to Imperial College London (UK).
Researchers included a number of scenarios, such as
- What would have happened if the world had not reacted to COVID-19,
- Two scenarios incorporating social distancing, which result in a single-peaked epidemic
- And several scenarios for suppressing the spread of the disease that can have the largest overall impact in terms of reducing disease and deaths.
It is noted that ignoring all security measures would lead to a worse development of the coronavirus epidemic and infection of seven billion people. This number would be halved if the number of contacts had been reduced by 40 percent for children, young people and adults, and 60 percent for older people.
Dr Patrick Walker, an author of the report from Imperial, said: "We estimate that the world faces an unprecedented acute public health emergency in the coming weeks and months. Our findings suggest that all countries face a choice between intensive and costly measures to suppress transmission or risk health systems becoming rapidly overwhelmed. However, our results highlight that rapid, decisive and collective action now will save millions of lives in the next year"
The study shows that poor countries will lose far more people than developed ones. A press release from the British university emphasizes that the problem of COVID-19 is common to all countries on Earth.
The modelling showed that implementing measures early on can have a dramatic impact.
If all countries were to adopt this strategy at 0.2 deaths per 100,000 population per week, 95 per cent of the deaths could be averted, saving 38.7 million lives.
However, if this strategy is adopted later (1.6 deaths per 100,000 population per week), then this figure drops to 30.7 million.
In March, Chinese experts published a study in JAMA Cardiology, which claimed that diseases of the cardiovascular system increases mortality by almost 4.5 times from coronavirus.
As more people are working remotely due to the Coronavirus quarantine, employees are finding creative ways to appear more online than they actually are.
For example, today most companies are using Zoom Meetings for their daily meetings. For those who are not familiar with Zoom, it is an app that allows people to hold video conferences. Here at Bemorepanda we also use Zoom and we love it!
Ok, so far all good. But, for those who does not know, there’s a feature on Zoom that can tell hosts if chat participants have navigated away from the active window for more than 30 seconds. In other words, your computer narcs you out to your boss when you’re paying more attention to funny animal videos than you are to the meeting.This means that during meetings or online classes, if you think you can switch apps while the other person talks, the app will tell on you.
However, it seems that some Zoom users have gotten pretty creative with how they are beating the app’s feature, where some have created looping videos to make it look like they’re paying attention, while others have created a custom background which features their still image.
As far as the host is concerned, they will think you’re still in the meeting, but you in reality, you can do whatever you like, like lying on your bed, playing games, eating or just nothing. Zoom Meetings was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a lead engineer from Cisco Systems and its collaboration business unit WebEx.
The company went public in April, 2019 and at that time, it was valued at $16 billion. In early 2020, usage of Zoom increased sharply as schools and companies adopted the platform for remote work in response to the coronavirus pandemic, rising 67% from the start of the year to mid-March.
According to World Health Organization, as of today, March 26, 2020, the UK reported 8.077 coronavirus cases and 422 deaths while across the globe, the number of confirmed cases tops 458,662 cases with over 20.801 deaths.
Among those people who have been tested positive is Queen Elizabeth II's son and the heir to the British throne – Price Charles.
Prince Charles, who is 71, said to only have mild symptoms and is otherwise in good health, Clearance House said in a statement. At the moment of writing, no one knows how he got the virus or if he was in contact recently with Queen Elizabeth II. The most likely version is that he caught the virus because of this recent busy schedule of public event.
Both Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating at Balmoral.
As the Queen is reported to meet with her son last time on the 12th of March, appropriate actions have been taken to make sure that the Queen is in good health, the Buckingham Palace said. She now appears to be “in good health”.
The coronavirus incubation period is usually around five to seven days, with a maximum number of days close to 12. According to a royal source, Prince Charles started showing symptoms last weekend, which means that potentially, he could have been exposed before he saw the Queen on the 12th of March.
According to a source close to CNN, he was tested on Monday and received the results on Tuesday.
While trying to receive an official statement from Price Charles office, they said: "It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks,"
Following his last public event where he attended along with the Queen, Prince Charles has had a number of private meetings with many individuals, all of whom have been made aware of the situation.
Now, everyone will focus their attention on the Queen – as she is in her mid-90s, it is know that people at that age are more vulnerable against Coronavirus. Until the moment of writing the article, it is not known if she has been tested.
However, as a precaution, the palace said the Queen was canceling public events and was moving from the Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle beyond the Easter period, sources say.
