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!

Clearly you did not bother to watch the video, where it clearly states that Covid is not the flu. Even so, why bother taking a risk with a disease that can permanently damage you even if you survive it. A mask is another layer of protection- and an effective one at that.

This channels comment section is where nerds come to fulfill their need to feel cheeky and smart. The definition of “cool” here has been adjusted to a scale more conducive to socially awkward ugly automatons. I love how hard they try to fit all the big words they know into one sentence. Or how they write these I said then they said little scripts. Them: Im not an automaton. Me: At least we can agree you are ugly and socially awkward. “The more I learn about people the more I love my dog” -mark twain

China misshandled this to such a degree that nations are calling for reperations and payments for damages. The world health orginazation also led by chinese money damaged the publics trust. The leader of the who has chinese money given to him regularly these are all facts u can look up. The fact that the who said not to wear face masks and news agencyies and the who bragged about how china was the leading example of how to handle corona ( all the while videos of chinese police and military were beating people and welding familys doors shut to keep them in while they starved to death, reports of many doctors speaking out early on who disapeared.) Is disgusting. China has a 1 thousand year plan as they call it to control the world and it is working. They pay us news media and buy land in the us, pay our colleges to give them break throughs before the us. They are winning world war 3 and we dont even know its started.

A fast pandemic will save more livelihoods because it ends quicker and allows people to go back to their normal lives/jobs. A slow pandemic will save more lives. The question is, “Who do you screw over”?

zhi you ho 👍ok it’s fine if u like a country with no democracy where your opinion doesn’t even count, it’s fine, but still China has progress a lot and I respect that. Even though they use the economic system that the u.s.a invented but that doesn’t matter at all, and you can’t deny that the virus came from China.... ‘Cause it did and they weren’t transparent about it, but it’s not only their fault also all countries around the word didn’t take too much measures

what i've learned from corona is to never trust the WHO, they were saying it was not airborne, when they're was plenty of evidence it was, they didn't even call it a pandemic until march, first, a pandemic is not millions of cases, a pandemic i when a virus hits 4 contenents, so it was a pandemic by january, also why are you using the sir model? sirs is more accurate

Hey I have the answer to both questions. The corona virus is just the flu but we don't have any treatments but it's basically the flu and once we come up with a treatment no one will even notice. STAY HOME AND ONLY GO OUT TO GET FOOD but at this time rules are being lifted so you should be good to go outside (depends where you live)
