I Urge You to Self Quarantine

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In case you are someone who is not following the CDC guidelines and self-quarantining, I hope you read this breakdown of why COVID-19 is so much more dangerous than common flu.

I’m not trying to spread fear. I’m trying to spread common sense and make people aware of what they can do to stop the spread of this highly contagious virus.

It’s not just your health at stake, it’s the other 59,000 people that may become infected because of your refusal to self-quarantine. Yes, 59,000!

This calculation is from a World News Yahoo article.

Calculation for Infections With Common Flu

“An intensive-care specialist has broken down just how infectious the new coronavirus is, illustrating the importance of self-isolating to slow the spread of the COVID-19 disease around the world.

“Professor Hugh Montgomery, director of the Institute for Human Health and Performance at University College London, told Channel 4′s “Dispatches” that the virus is three times more infectious than the flu, and therefore spreads much faster and wider.”

Montgomery said, “Normal flu, if I get that, I’m going to infect on average 1.3, 1.4 people … by the time it’s happened 10 times, I’ve been responsibly for about 14 cases of flu.”

(That figure comes from calculating 1.4 to the power of ten = 13.786, rounded up to 14.)

Calculation for Infections With CoViD-19

“This coronavirus is very, very infectious, so every person passes to it 3, now that doesn’t sound like much of a difference, but if each of those 3 pass it to 3 and that happens in 10 layers, you can be responsible for infecting 59,000 people.”

(This figure is calculated from raising 3 to the power of 10 which yields 59,059!)

More than 50,000 people? What will happen to those people? Will they have a mild case? A severe case? Will they die?

Takeaway Truth

This is time when we all need to focus on selflessness and think of the greater good.

Do your part.

Use your head.

Stop the spread.

Don’t be a fool—follow the CDC rule.

      Death and infection rate is amazingly small for the reaction taken that everyone is beginning to suspect something is amiss here.

      When comparing it to other “death” rates that kill humans should show we should not be concerned at all as it’s WAY down there. :cool:
