Podcast Episode 9

There are currently 142,783 confirmed cases in 136 countries and territories. The fatality rate is still being assessed.

The Truth about the Coronavirus

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses that cause sicknesses like the common cold, as well as more severe diseases, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain – one that hasn’t previously been recognized in humans.
Coronaviruses cause diseases in mammals and birds. A zoonotic virus is one that is transmitted between animals and people. When a virus circulating in animal populations infects people, this is termed a “spillover event”.

Store Shelves have been emptied across the world.
Fights have broken out, carts piled high, and across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, most supermarkets imposed a cap to limit the number of toilet paper rolls a person can buy.
There is no shortage of videos capturing the mass hysteria that has swept up globally as shelves are cleared.
Hand sanitizers, cleaning solutions, canned goods, water bottles and pasta shelves have are also sold out.

When people are told something dangerous is coming, but all you need to do is wash your hands, the action doesn’t seem proportionate to the threat.

People naturally start to panic-buy when they think something is scarce, and photos on social media can easily fuel that panic.
