Still think  my country is over reacting to the situation,one of the benefits of living on an island is to prevent situations like this from occurring,if our government was truly concerned they would have restricted travel as soon as possible, yet here we are. We are neither  an international hub or condensed like NYC so I disagree with the alot of of the initiatives put in place.

From Indonesia here.

 

693 confirmed Covid-19 cases so far, 55 deaths, 30 recoveries.

 

Strict lockdown and physical/social distancing policy by the central govt is being implemented right now.

 

If it means slowing down the pandemic rate and giving the hardworking and life-risking medical workers handling the virus, I'm 120% behind it.

 

.

.

.

 

Downsides so far are social isolation from close ones and difficulty sending things in an emergency cases (a friend from my college needs meds (antibiotics to be precise) for her mom to be delivered from the capital (Jakarta) to Lamongan (approximately 400 kilometers/240 miles in distance), and air delivery has been almost blocked due to airport lockdowns, and she's forced to take the land route for delivery of the meds)


 

*giving breathing space/easing the burden of the hardworking and life-risking medical workers by less elderly and immunocompromised victims of the virus for them to handle

Well, Brazil is facing a tough choice here. We were still recovering from our biggest recession yet, and this shit hit us. The president is facing a lot of backlash for being against a prolonged full lockdown, claiming that most people and small to medium business owners simply cant survive such a prolonged period without revenue. Its a very delicate balance we must achieve, because the death toll caused by this lockdown might eventually surpass the disease`s. 

 

Also theres something to be said about not letting the government set a precedent for measures like lockdowns and curfews. Its only working this time around because people legit believe this is the apocalypse, and the mainstream media is to be blamed for that.

I totally agree on not letting the government abuse the privilege they got simply because this is, factually, an emergency situation.

 

I, however, think that we don't necessarily need MSM to fan the flames regarding this situation.

 

At first, I thought the lockdown and physical/social distancing stuff is something ripped straight out of the Big Brother playbook, but, as time progresses, and many medical workers are down daily (either through overexertion or contracted the virus--or both), and the elderly and those with weak immune systems are proven prone to contract the virus, I believe drastic measure needs to be taken, if only this once.

 

.

Problem is, "only this once" does not seem to be too good a prospect for the powers that be, especially given that they see how the authoritarian and iron-hand approaches taken by China arguably works in handling and containing coronavirus to date (that 10-day done special hospital of theirs is, like it or not, kinda impressive.)

This. Great recession is looming around the corner. I mean, this is essentially WW3 (versus the pandemic) minus industrial production boom (the reverse is true, in fact).

 

Will there be life after coronavirus?

 

There will be hope still for as long as we all stay on our toes for what comes next--that is, as you said in SOT, stay frosty.

RIP "hygiene freak" and "OCD handwashing", you'll both no longer be in dictionaries, but I shall remember you.

I think it's impossible to contain it, the only countries that have succeeded in containing it were China & South Korea (& Taiwan if I'm not mistaken) , through either masive testing or masive lockdowns or a combination of both, however most of the world simply doesn't have the ability to replicate the Korean or Chinese model, such as building a brand new hospital in ten days or mobilizing the entire nation to produce medical goods..not every one has the industrial capacity of China, & China itself cannot satisfy the needs of all other countries.
at this point I would say the only hope is the heat.

I like the conspiracies about it.

Like it was a weapon for cleansing that got out of control and that it was caused by 5G.

 

They are also saying China is lying about their numbers as most countries are getting to 50k cases under a month and china did it in 2 months.

there are all kinds of conspiracy theories, some say it escaped from a bio weapons lab in Wuhan, others (especially at the beginning) said that it was a Bio attack from the US on China for economic reasons, some say the reason why it's spreading like this is because whenever a country is infected it's military assumes that what happened was biowarfare from a rival even if it isn't so say for example if Iran get's infected they would send infected people to KSA/Israel etc...
personaly I believe in non of those theories, I believe what happened was pure coincidance.

regarding the numbers, frankly I trust in China's statistics the most simply because they tested more people than any other country by far (they test one million people per day) , & it's really impossible to hide the numbers, take what happened with Dr. Li Wenliang for example, when they silenced him at the beginning of 2020 for the sake of not harming the image of the rulers the news about the disease still leaked, if they can't even properly silence that single doctor then there is no way they could silence dozens of thousands of doctors who are testing the people.

and that's the point, they couldn't even prevent the information from leaking from that one single dying doctor, that's why I say it's impossible for them to control the information & leaks that comes out of dozens or humdreds of thousands of doctors who are doing the testing.
