I thought Kenya would be exempted from being invaded by the 2019 novel coronavirus. It appears this virus is determined to reach to almost all countries.
With over 3,000 deaths and over 100,000 people infected, the disease has caused panic to the point people are acting weirdly. This has led to a rise of myths or misinformation related to the disease.
Again, a Chinese official has said the virus was intentionally brought to China by US soldiers for…(what reason? Not yet told).
It is not good to label the 2019-nCoV as a Wuhan coronavirus/disease or Chinese disease. It doesn’t rhyme with scientific facts about diseases.
World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the disease a pandemic. There is some concession that if Chinese government didn’t cover up the outbreak of the disease by silencing doctors who identified it, the disease would have been contained earlier.
Has the coronavirus made its way to your country?
Are you afraid of the COVID-19 disease?

China is very devious in its ways. They should have warned the world at the earliest , now we pay the price.
Yes, this outbreak would have been contained earlier but the Chinese government underplayed it. It has been discovered the virus began wrecking havoc in November. Now, the rest of us are paying the price as you’ve stated.
same here. We ll never pay them back so they’ll confiscate the airport
Sadly, that might be the case. We Africa owe them a lot repaying is almost impossible
It is deliberate. It is a way to gain control over your ports and airport and whatever else they want. It is an invasion without the shooting.
You are right. As you know, the superpowers want to have a big share of economy and indirect rule over countries. It’s a fight for power.
China took a different track. Doesn’t care about politics, human rights, only money. So it comes in, captures an economy, destroys local industries. It does it by the workers who are to build a road bringing in their families who open businesses and sell Chinese good and treat the locals like dirt.
It reminds me of Chinese who own a restaurant here. A local worker was working there. He did a mistake. A video was captured of a Chinese chef whipping the Kenyan man for a mistake he did.
I don’t have a problem with Chinese working in my country, investing or opening small businesses. The problem is how many of them treat the locals like dirt. There was a Chinese who insulted the president and was deported.
The Chinese government is benefitting in making developing countries dependable on them. If humans only acted as humans…
We already have over 100 cases of infection ….. They have taken drastic measures to limit the virus …. I personally am not afraid of it because the mortality rate is not so great and it most of all affects older and more frail people
Yes, it’s mortality rate is not high as SARS. I hope no death was reported in your country.
They just announced that he was also the first death ….. an old man who had a weakened immune system died … so reported
It is so sad. Even though I don’t fear the disease, it’s sad how the disease exhibit our vulnerability to nature.
It is the travellers that bring in the virus. Every traveller should be tested.
That is true. They are required to be quarantined for 14 days to determine whether they have it.
That is terrible. It is here where I live in Florida but I stay mostly home. I thought the country I lived in Latvia would also be immune but they also have the virus.
It appears it has invaded almost every state in America. This disease has spread very wide but it will have a large impact on developing nations.
The first case was discovered in our country in early March. Today, drastic measures are taken (forbidden gathering of people, closed all schools, kindergartens … canceled all events including sports, shows, etc.).
Even here those restrictions have been put in place. It appears a few countries will be spared from this outbreak.
Yes. Spain is much affected. As of today, there are drastic measures in 15 days for now. There may be more.
Same here in the US. Stay safe and well my friend.
Here, the government has banned any mass gatherings or participation and traveling by air in or out.
only problem with the theory about the origination is the US military doesn’t go to China.
He stated when the US soldiers went to Wuhan which was holding international army athletic. This is in opposition to the leader of CDC in China who stated the virus jumped from an animal to human.
that is simply not true. If the released such a toxin they would also have been infected. The US would have been site two, not Italy.
blame is a funny game, be careful when you use it! that is what I would tell the Chinese official!
That is true, blaming is a bad game especially when there are no facts to back it. Scientists worldwide have agreed the virus jumped from a not-yet-known animal.
There are also assumptions that HIV and Ebola were manufactured by USA. Again, it is said it is Chinese government who made the virus. In all of these, no facts have been provided to prove their assertions.
it is a sad reality now. The internet allows for information to spead quickly but there is nobody to verify the information anymore.
That is true. Nowadays it’s easier to believe lies because they spread so fast.
Seems like it is world wide now. It has been in the US for weeks now. Not scared, only concerned.
The world has been late in detecting it earlier. I’m also not worried
Reading your post, it sounds like you are in Jamaica. It is lucky that the first case was due to a local. If it had been a Chinese every lamppost would have a Chinese body hanging.
You are right. If it was a Chinese, things would have turned out soar.
Some Chinese nationals were bullied by some Kenyans and called Chinese coronas. The government warned the citizens against such behavior and anyone who does that will be taken good care by the law.
China ‘invaded’ Jamaica about a decade ago. And the resentment is thick. On building projects, the Chinese get safety gear, the Jamaicans don’t. There’s been issues with a lot of the Chinese Belt and Road projects.
China is stretching its arms far and wide. I wouldn’t be amazed if my country belongs to China because we owe them billions of dollars.
