COVID-19 pandemic

ongoing pandemic of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).[5][a] The outbreak originated in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was called a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.[6][7][8][9][10] The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses gave the virus its name. As of 14 May, more than 4.4 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories, resulting in nearly 300,000 deaths, but almost 1,660,000 recoveries.[11][12]

The virus is usually spread from one person to another using small drops made when coughing[13][14] or sneezing.[15] It mostly spreads when people are close to each other, but can also spread when people touch a surface with the virus, and then their face.[14][15] Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.[16] Complications may include pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome.[17] There is currently no vaccine or specific antiviral medicine for COVID-19.[18] Right now, doctors usually give patients supportive therapy.[19] Ways people can avoid spreading the virus include hand washing, covering the mouth when coughing, maintaining distance from other people, and monitoring and self-isolation for people who think they are infected.[18]

The outbreak may have came from a coronavirus that usually lives in bats that infected some other animal, possibly pangolins, and then changed inside that other animal until it could infect humans.[20]

SymptomsEdit

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 makes people feel sick in different ways, but it usually affects the lungs. People usually cough and have difficulty breathing. They often also have a fever, chills, headache, pain in their muscles, or trouble tasting or smelling things.[22]

According to an April 2020 study by the American Gastroenterological Association, COVID-19 can make sick people vomit or have diarrhea but this is rare. They said about 7.7% of COVID-19 patients vomited, about 7.8% had diarrhea and about 3.6% had pain in their stomachs.[23]

DataEdit

NameEdit

In February 2020, the WHO announced they had chosen a name for the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2: COVID-19, replacing the temporary name "2019-nCoV."[24] "Covi" is for "coronavirus," "D" for "disease," and "19" for the year 2019. They said they did not want the name to have any person, place, or animal in it, like "Wuhan," because then people might blame the disease on that place, person, or animal. They also wanted the name to be easy to say out loud.[25]

Mortality rate of COVID-19Edit

 
The current death rate of COVID-19

According to an article in Market Watch dated on February 27, 2020, the overall case mortality rate in China was 2.3%. However, there were large differences between different age groups and between men and women. People over the age of seventy experienced a rate of mortality 4-5 times that of the average. Men were more likely to die than women (2.8% versus 1.7% for women). These numbers were the conclusion of a study by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention using 72,314 COVID-19 cases in mainland China as of Feb. 11. At that point this was the largest sample of cases for such a study.[26]

On March 5, 2020, the WHO released the case fatality rate.[27]

Race and racismEdit

COVID-19 did not affect everyone in each country the same way.[28] As of mid-April 2020, black Americans made up 33% of the population of Louisiana but 70% of the people who died from COVID-19 in Louisiana were black. Black Americans made up 26% of the population of Alabama, but 44% of the people who died were black.[29] In Chicago, black Americans made up a third of the population, but half of the people who tested positive were black and 72% of the people who died were black.[30] As of May 2020, APM Research Lab said the death rate among black Americans was 2.4 times as high as for whites and 2.2 times as high as for Latino and Asian Americans.[31]

Camara Jones, an epidemiologist who once worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this was socioeconomic and not because of any natural difference in black and white people's bodies.[32] In the United States, black citizens are more likely to work jobs where they serve the public and to ride on buses and trains rather than take their own cars to work, which makes them more likely to be infected than people who work in private offices or from home. Sharrelle Barber, an epidemiologist and biostatistician from Drexel University, also said black Americans can live in crowded neighborhoods where social distancing is harder to do and healthy food harder to find.[30] Both Barber and Jones blamed the long history of racism in the United States for these things. Three senators, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren said the federal government should start recording the race of COVID-19 patients so scientists could study this problem.[30]

In the United Kingdom, twice as many black COVID-19 patients died as white COVID-19 patients. Other non-white people, like people from India and Bangledesh, were also more likely to die of COVID-19 than whites. Britain's Office of National Statistics said that the differences in money and education explained some of this difference but not all of it. They also said they did not know whether non-white patients caught COVID-19 more often or whether they caught more severe cases. Only female Chinese Britons were less likely to die of COVID-19 than white Britons.[33]

Some experts said the fact that more non-white people became sick and died from COVID-19 may have made the anti-racism George Floyd protests larger and more intense.[34]

Indigenous peoplesEdit

Native Americans in the United States have shown more deaths from COVID-19 than the rest of the U.S.[35] As of May, the Navajo Nation had many 88 deaths and 2,757 cases, and the money they had been promised by the government arrived several weeks late. Only 30% of the people in the Navajo Nation have pipes with running water, which made it difficult for people to wash their hands.[36]

Scientists from Chapman University made a plan to protect the Tsimane people in Bolivia from COVID-19 and said this plan would also work for other indigenous peoples living on their own land. The scientists said that many indigenous peoples have problems that make COVID-19 more dangerous for them, like poverty, less clean water, and other lung diseases. Hospitals may be a long distance away, and racism can affect the way doctors and nurses react. But they also sometimes have things that help, like traditions of making decisions together and the ability to grow food nearby.[35] The scientists found people who spoke the Tsimane language as a first language and made teams to go to Tsimane towns to warn them about COVID-19. They also used radio stations. They said the best strategy was for whole communities to decide to isolate. They found this worked well because the Tsimane already usually made their big decisions together as a community in special meetings and already had a tradition of quarantining new mothers. The Chapman scientists said their plan would also work for other indigenous peoples who also make decisions together, like the Tsimane. [37][35] The Waswanipi Cree in Canada, the Mapoon people in Australia, and many groups in South America already tried plans like these on their own.[35]

Conspiracy theoriesEdit

In early 2020, some people began to think that the SARS-CoV-2 may have been made on purpose in a laboratory and either released by accident or on purpose like a weapon. Some Iranians thought the Americans might have made it.[38] Chinese state media said COVID-19 came from the United States to China and not the other way around.[39] Some Americans thought the Chinese might have made it.[40] Some Britons thought it might have been created by accident by 5G celll phone networks.[41]

On March 17, 2020, scientists from Columbia University and other places published a paper in Nature Medicine showing that SARS-CoV-2 was almost surely not made by humans in a laboratory. They did this by comparing the genomes of different viruses to each other.[20] The scientists saw that SARS-CoV-2 did not match any of the viral backbones that already exist for virologists to use.[42] Within a few weeks, it became one of the most cited scientific papers in history, meaning that other scientists were reading and using it.

CanadaEdit

South AfricaEdit

AustraliaEdit

New ZealandEdit

COVID-19 cases have been reported in most parts of New Zealand. The quick response by New Zealands prime minister meant that they have completely overcome the virus and is soon to go to Level 1 of their plan. There were clusters popping up all over New Zealand including one at a wedding and one at a rest home(which lead to many deaths). Even so not many have died, the numbers are in the teens. School and non-essential workplaces have gone back to work as their are no active cases in the country. (This was written by someone who is from New Zealand)

Cruise shipsEdit

  • 17 February 2020 the BBC reported: "Coronavirus: Japan cruise ship's US passengers home for further quarantine"[379]
  • Nineteen crew members of the cruise ship off the coast of California tested positive [380]
  • Another Crew Member Suspected of Contracting Coronavirus[381]

Food and hungerEdit

The pandemic made it more difficult for millions of people all over the world to get enough food. People lost their jobs, so they did not have money to buy food. Farms were shut down, so there was less food made. Processing plants and food factories were shut down, so less food was made ready for people to eat.[382]

In April, Arif Husain of the United Nations' World Food Program said that 130 million more people could go hungry, in addition to the 135 million who were already hungry before the pandemic began. He said that poorer countries would be more affected than rich countries because the way they move raw food from farms to cities and other places where people live is less organized and relies more on human beings than on automatic systems.[382]

This hunger crisis is different from crises in other years because it happened to the whole world at the same time. That meant that people working in other countries could not help by sending money home.[382][383]

All over the world, children who ate meals at school had less access to food when the schools were shut down.[382]

Scientists from the University of Michigan said the pandemic was making it harder for people to find food. In a study published in May, they said out of of seven Americans over age 50 said they had trouble getting enough food before the pandemic, and it got worse when senior centers that provided meals were closed.[384] Federal and state governments started programs to bring food to older people and children. There were also more food donation drives in towns.[383]

EnvironmentEdit

Because so many governments told people to stay at home, there was less air pollution than usual for that time of year. Pollution in New York fell by 50% and the use of coal in China fell by 40%.[385] The European Space Agency showed pictures taken from a satellite of China's pollution disappearing during quarantine and coming back when everyone went back to work.[386]

The pandemic and shudowns made people use less electricity. In the United States, people got more of their electricity from renewable power like wind and solar power than from coal power. This was because coal plants, which tend to be older, are more expensive to run than solar or wind or natural gas, so power companies used them less.[387]

Pollution from before the pandemic also affected what happened after people became sick. Scientists saw that more people died from COVID-19 in places with large amounts of air pollution. One team of scientists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg looked at air pollution information from satellites and statistics on COVID-19 deaths in Italy, France, Germany and Spain and saw that places with large amounts of nitrogen dioxide pollution had more people die from COVID-19. Nitrogen dioxide can damage the lungs.[388][389]

The shutdowns and social distancing also affected animals. Human beings started staying at home about the same time in the spring when sea turtles like to come on land to lay their eggs. Turtle scientists in the United States and Thailand both reported more nests than usual on seashores in Florida and Phuket. They say it is because people are not coming to the beach or bringing their dogs to the beach and because there are fewer boats in the water nearby. Scientists also say they see more dugong and dolphins and fewer manatees killed by boats.[390][391][392] The pandemic meant there were fewer cars driving down roads, so salamanders, frogs, and other amphibians were able to cross them for their spring migration. According to citizen scientists from Big Night Maine, a group that watches amphibians, four amphibians made it across the roads alive for every one amphibian killed by cars. Most years, it is only two to one.[393]

  51. HNLMS Dolfijn
    1. All 8 cases currently associated with Dolfijn were reported while the submarine was at sea in the waters between Scotland and the Netherlands.[320]
    2. It is unclear whether the Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) is including these cases in their total count, but neither their daily update details nor their daily epidemiological situation reports appear to have mentioned the ship, with a breakdown of cases listing the twelve provinces of the country of the Netherlands (as opposed to the kingdom) accounting for all the cases in the total count.[321][322]
    3. As RIVM does not report recoveries, and militaries are generally less transparent than most government agencies due to operations security concerns, it is assumed that no official report on recoveries is forthcoming.
