A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with the video. Especially “Our World in Data”, the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.
In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.
What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Phew. That might have been the fastest we ever made a video. Literally working day and night. A huge challenge in talking about Corona was that the science is ongoing. So we put in extra special care to have good sources for this video and will update them in the coming weeks and months. Check them out here: sites.google.com/view/sourcescorona We could not have made this video without experts who took time in one of the busiest periods of their own careers. A huge thanks especially to Dr James Gurney and Dr Max Roser of Our World in Data for helping us make sure the video was as accurate as it could be in a situation that is changing daily. Also a big shoutout to ourworldindata.org/ - the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic. Working together with them over the years has been a delight. Ok. We are very tired and are going to take a nap now. Stay healthy!

Linase Před 5 hodinami
Thank you so much for the visual! If possible can you also show the battle if: 1. Someone has asthma, is older, smoker etc. 2. How wearing a mask would help stop from getting infected 3. How it can spread from talking, hugging, etc 4. The response, how you’d cough really hard, not be able to breath through nose or mouth, not be able to talk etc... Thank you so much for all the hard work💕

6:33 - I know this explanation is as simplified as it can be for easier understanding, but the soap doesn't break down viruses' membrane, it essentially rips it apart, destroying the virus. Same goes for bacteria, but in order for soap to do that you need to apply a sufficient amount and rub for some time (at least 10 seconds is what I believe I heard), works way better than any hand sanitizer - just so you know.

After some very serious research regarding coronaviruses I stumbled across research being conducted at Wuhan Institute of Virology and corona virus infection capabilities and the Horseshoe Bat as a carrier plus zoonosis (species cross infection) capabilities of this strain, they had successfully developed a hybrid virus combining Bat coronavirus with SARS obtained from mice. They developed in 2015 a strain of coronavirus that could infect Humans with infection being successful with HeLa test cells. Why? To develop vaccines? Has the natural population of Horseshoe bat expressing zoonotic infections naturally. It has been documented (or was) that a number of animal technicians instead of incinerating the animals sold them as food at markets a particular technician was sentenced. This is not conspiracy theory but extracted from documented evidence that is for the moment still available.

**************************** * 100% of scientists agree * ------> "We DON'T know much about this. **************************** ------> But, THEN they make all kinda DEFINITIVE CONCLUSIONS..like "stay in your home cuz it will spread like wildfire." How do u know you hypocritical morons! Plus, the "scary" data like Italy must be viewed in context ... that's a TIGHTLY packed population where 99% of victims were elderly who were basically dying anyways. Many scientists say it's BEEN HERE. So, quarantining is BS. We are all such sheep. Obeying governments who did NOTHING when Swine Flu had more numbers and was killing HEALTHY people with good immune systems.

(Alessandro Sales-Deus acima de tudo ).Eu entendi como o vírus se comporta em combate se ele ataca primeiro os intestinos é pra sabotar nossas defesas impedindo a absorção de nutrientes bactericidas que irão nos ajudar no combate final contra as bactérias após a infestação do vírus, então devemos sabotar ele antes que ele nos sabote comendo açafrão da terra ( uma poderosa raiz bactericida de origem da ÍNDIA QUE DEVE SER MASTIGADA in natura diariamente, em fatias finas,mastigadas e engolidas junto com raspas de pimenta do reino ,um grão de pimenta por dose,para fortalecer nossas defesas antes mesmo que o vírus corte nossos suprimentos,pois ela é mais absorvida nos intestinos,e a pimenta potencializa a absorção em até 20 X vinte vezes. Ou administrar lá em último caso em forma de supositório .

Does boosting your immune system (with Vit-C, D3, Zink...& other supplements) actually worsens the illness? I am asking this because at some point your immune response against the coronavirus becomes overzealous and causes life-threatening damage to the lungs ...
