Comment on the following statement:
|Is Coronavirus (COVID-19) really a problem or just Mass-media noise? |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
I think that COVID-19 is a real danger to society. First of all, COVID-19 works differently compared to previous major viruses. For example, it enters deep into humancells and the immune system notices it too late to fight off successfully. Secondly, the virus has quickly caused a Pandemic, “a world epidemic”, that has not happened with other viruses for overa 100 years. For instance, after only 2 months it is hard to find a country that has not yet been infected with COVID-19.
At the same time, there are people who do not agree with this opinion. They say that the Coronavirus can be cured just like many other previous viral epidemics and Mass Media just creates an unnecessary panic among people.
I do not agree with the statement above. COVID-19 is a much more insidious virus. The number of deaths among elderly people from it, is much higher than for previousmass viral outbreaks.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight Coronavirus seems to be just another virus, but in actual fact it produces a lot more disasters to already sick people thanprevious flu viruses. Thus, I strongly believe that it should be treated much more seriously and people should follow all the few basic rules of general safety.
