Covid-19 caused a worldwide panic with many lockdowns but no one really knew how deadly it was initially as a percentage of the population. Statistics from Germany suggest a half a percent of the population die but now it seems that there are some statistics which suggest it is not more deadly than the flu percentage wise. Sanity is slowly returning to the world and more courageous humans in face masks are resuming public activity.
It is not yet clear how many people are asymptomatic carriers of the disease and are contributing to the spread of the epidemic. Similarly, it is not known how long those carriers may be contagious. We may not ever know this because sampling scientific statistics with factual data doesn’t exist and will not exist since you can’t put humans in a laboratory environment and actually test them to get the answers for a real world environment.
Ignorance leads to fear and panic in a pandemic which really only means that the virus is worldwide and highly contagious.
I have come up with about 12 questions about the virus which still don’t have scientific answers publically available:
How long can Covid-19 live on clothing, skin, food, etc.
Where does covid-19 have to land to guarantee infection? On skin, in lungs, on lips, inside nose, inside mouth, or in eyes?
Can it be spread through food and how such as just by eating it?
Can one covid-19 virus infect you or do you need a handful or more?
How effective are a variety of face masks in protecting you?
Does hand washing remove 100% of the viruses or is it only about 99.9%?
If someone and you are wearing a mask is a distance of 1 or 2 feet sufficient rather than 6 feet?
What is most effective in killing the virus? soap, alcohol, ultraviolet light, etc.?
How do I know if I have come down with a mutant or less virulent form of covid-19 but not the original covid-19 without a test for it?
What is the actual percentage of deaths for the population as a whole since existing preconditions are responsible for higher death percentages amongst the elderly and those with immune deficiencies?
What are the preconditions which result in death with a covid-19 infection?
Is a vaccine only a temporary solution since covid-19 can probably eventually mutate into covid-20?
Ignorance abounds but once these and other questions are answered maybe we will be better prepared for the next pandemic.
