Good morning, today I am going to give a speech on something that is hot in the news at the moment and could potentially harm us, that thing is a coronavirus.
There isn’t a huge amount to say about it as it is still being researched Novel Coronavirus a member of the coronavirus family that has never been encountered before. Like other coronaviruses, it has come from animals. Many of those infected either worked or frequently shopped in the Huanan seafood wholesale market in the center of the Chinese city.
What kind of risk does it oppose to us?
The risk to us is not huge, first of all, there is a 2% chance of it being fatal and it is more of a worry if you have it and you’re in the age range of 52-67.
We are also in north wales and the population density here is fairly low, this means that we are less likely to have people near us that have the disease, it is more of a problem in big cities where people are very close and piling on and off trains and busses. And anyway, there are only two cases of it In the UK and them in York.
The symptoms include a cough, runny nose, and a sore throat, this means that it is very similar to the common cold, this does not mean that if you cough or if you nose runs that you have coronavirus, you should only seek medical attention if you suspect that you been in contact with the virus.
I guess you can formulate your own opinion but to me, id say no,
Although there is not a huge amount of risk to us if we all had it think about how many babies, young children, and grandparents you have it. They are all the people that are susceptible to it and could be killed by it, I'm sure all of you will have relatives that either old or young and that could be effected, another bu risk is that the virus could mutate and that may mean that it will be more dangerous and kill many more people. Vaccines are being made but they take months to develop and test, then you have to produce them and get people to take them, by the white time it will have made its way around the world and could have caused a lot of damage.
Right now, not a huge amount. As I said before, vaccines cant be made instantly so the only thing that can be done is to look after people who have the virus and then quarantine people that are suspected to have it, a lot of major airlines are limiting flights out of china but I had a look and there are still flights arriving from Manchester that have come from within. At airports they are screening people using heat sensors, the people with the virus will have a raised body temperature, this method doesn’t always work though, this is because people can have the virus for 2 weeks without any symptoms. The virus is all around the world now but the cases have not yet been diagnosed as the people are showing no symptoms.
How much is true and what is false.
