A movie that can be seen in one shot that `` how important it is to delay infection spread '' played over 6 million times
As the spread of the new coronavirus continues to stop, efforts around the world to 'delay the spread of the new coronavirus', such as by working at home and taking social distances, are continuing. So, a movie that summarizes how important these efforts are in an easy-to-understand manner is released by the American news media Vox, and as of April 7, 2020, it is being watched more than 6 million times and is attracting interest.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognized the spread of the new coronavirus as a 'pandemic.'
However, the certification was made after the spread of the new coronavirus in China, Korea, Iran and Italy.
`` In the coming days and weeks, the number of countries affected by the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) will increase, and the number of patients and deaths will increase, '' said WHO Executive Director Tedros Adanom at a conference. It is expected. '
In this movie, we will explore 'What can people do if the spread of infection is inevitable anymore?'
First, you need to know about COVID-19. The main symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, fatigue, and cough. It may be accompanied by body pain or headache, but the rate is not high. In addition, there are individual differences in symptoms, and there may be no symptoms at all.
In any case, most symptoms are not life-threatening and 80% of patients are said to be mild. However, 20% become severe.
In severe cases, pneumonia may develop to such a degree that hospitalization requires the use of ventilators and the final mortality rate is estimated to be 1-2%.
However, the fatality rate varies between 0.01 and 0 years for children aged 0 to 9 and 18% for those aged 80 and over. In addition, it is more difficult for people with underlying or chronic illnesses, so-called chronic diseases, to overcome the virus.
It is said that the infectivity of COVID-19 exceeds that of influenza, but the only confirmed method of infection is 'the route through which the virus enters the mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, and nose through coughing and sneezing.'
One of the features of such a new coronavirus is that 'it takes on average 5 to 6 days from infection to appearance of symptoms'. For this reason, infection with the new coronavirus may go unnoticed and spread.
This property has led to a rapid spread of infection so that the WHO must certify a pandemic.
While announcing the pandemic, Tedros Adanom said, 'What I want to say out loud is that many countries can still change the way the pandemic spreads.'
In the face of a new pandemic in humanity, the most concerned is 'many people will be COVID-19 at the same time, and medical institutions will be flooded with patients.'
For example, suppose this yellow circle is a 'healthy and healthy person'. And this person goes to work on public transportation ...
Suppose your company has been infected with COVID-19.
However, it takes time for the symptoms to appear, so you may not know immediately if you are infected and can still act normally.
For that reason, I sometimes go out to watch basketball.
Even if several people are infected on the spot, most of them will be mild, but in the case of elderly people, they will become more severe ...
Hospitalization is required.
However, those who do not need to be hospitalized can take the public transport or go to work to further spread the infection.
Therefore, even if the rate of hospitalization is 20%, patients who exceed the number of hospital beds will come to the hospital.
In that case, those who would have been saved if they were able to receive treatment would not be able to help and 'death that should have been avoided' would occur.
In fact, the number of people infected with COVID-19 in South Korea, Iran and Italy has surged from 100 to 5,000 in two weeks and has rushed to hospitals.
As a result, a life that could have been saved was lost.
The consequences of this were those who had no symptoms when infected and eventually spread the virus unknowingly.
To prevent this, it is important to act as if you have already been infected.
Specifically, avoid small areas as well as public transport, workplaces and crowded places. By doing so, you can reduce both the probability of getting infected and the probability of getting infected.
This is the concept of the “
If the rate of infection spreads slowly, the number of people who will be hospitalized at one time will decrease, and there will be no 'patients who cannot receive treatment.'
Here are two scenarios of pandemic spread.
Experts are complaining about “smooth curves” to stop some people from dying because of the lack of treatment.
To achieve this, many companies have introduced telecommuting ...
Major sports organizations have forgotten the game.
Some say, 'Do you overdo it?' But looking back at history, the conclusion is clear.
St. Louis and Philadelphia responded differently to the
A major parade was held in Philadelphia with the permission of the health authorities ...
St. Louis closed schools, theaters and bars to prepare for the spread of the disease.
Here is a graph of the number of deaths per 100,000 people in such two cities. While Philadelphia has spikes, St. Louis has a nice gentle curve.
This pandemic is the same situation.
'This is a choice for the important person to live or die for you,' concludes the movie.
