Pandemic, Epidemic & a Glossary of Other Coronavirus Terms A disease cluster or infection cluster is a group of similar health events that have occurred in the same area around the same time. You may have heard some new cases of the current coronavirus described as "outbreak clusters." Community spread is spread of a disease among a certain area, in which there is no direct knowledge of how or when someone contracted the disease. While some cases of coronavirus can be pinpointed to certain trips, associations between people or other events, instances of "community spread" are less specific and harder to trace. The coronavirus is actually not one type of virus; it is a large family of viruses that also includes SARS and other minor to major respiratory illnesses.

Covid-19 Cases of Covid-19 first emerged in late 2019, when a mysterious illness was reported in Wuhan, China. The cause of the disease was soon confirmed as a new kind of coronavirus, and the infection has since spread to many countries around the world and become a pandemic. On 11 February the World Health Organization announced that the official name would be covid-19, a shortened version of coronavirus disease 2019.

Coronavirus Update (Live) How dangerous is the virus? There are three parameters to understand in order to assess the magnitude of the risk posed by this novel coronavirus: Transmission Rate (Ro) - number of newly infected people from a single caseCase Fatality Rate (CFR) - percent of cases that result in death Determine whether asymptomatic transmission is possible Understanding COVID-19: A Primer As a psychologist, I am not well-versed in the technical language of viruses. As such, I took some time to ask my friend, Dr. Waldemar Schmidt, who is an MD/Ph.D. pathologist some questions about the virus. Coronavirus: April 15 day 2271 Americans will die from infection There are dire warnings the United States will face its worst death toll in the second week of April. New modelling predicts 2271 people will die from coronavirus on April 15 alone. The analysis was done by the University of Washington School of Medicine and predicted deaths per day will only drop to under 100 after June 9. “Our estimated trajectory of COVID-19 deaths assumes continued and uninterrupted vigilance by the general public, hospital and health workers, and government agencies,” Dr Christopher Murray said. “The trajectory of the pandemic will change – and dramatically for the worse – if people ease up on social distancing or relax with other precautions. We encourage everyone to adhere to those precautions to help save lives.

The Path to Zero: Key Metrics For COVID Suppression – Pandemics Explained Harvard Global Health Institute, Harvard's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, Rockefeller Foundation, CovidActNow, Covid-Local, CIDRAP and many others join forces, launch new COVID Risk Level map and COVID suppression guidance for policy makers and the public Cambridge, July 1, 2020 -- Uncertainty is the currency of pandemics. As evidence on the new coronavirus, how it spreads and who falls ill from it emerges slowly, policy makers and the public have to base their decisions on the best information available. Experts help interpret the evidence, but they may differ on details that can be confusing for non-experts -- and filtering out what matters from a rising sea of misinformation has become a daunting task.

Take Sambucol-Coronovirus Self-Assistance – Part 1 Published on March 21, 2020 Written by Geraint Hughes As a good starting point, I would suggest Sambucol. This alternative health food product has been around for decades and is available in extract, liquid, tab and pill forms and has been used as an old folk remedy in Europe and Africa going back centuries. It is an extract of Elderberry and its quite drinkable. Many studies have been conducted on it and found it to be beneficial against many different types of flu viruses, none have been conducted on Coronavirus of course, but seeing as Coronavirus is a flu type virus, it seems perfectly reasonable that a cheap, easily available product which assists against one type may also be of benefit against another type.
