100 thoughts on “US Travel, Schools And Businesses Scramble To Deal With Coronavirus | TODAY

  1. Buy the face masks!! They are saying its not effective but yet they need them seriously. Buy them while you can people!!!!

  2. I'm so tired of hearing people compare this to the flu and west Nile like that's supposed to make it better

  3. I love it when young reporters dismiss this as low risk except to those 65 and older. Meanwhile, most of your viewers are 65 and older. It’s insensitive to those of us who are legitimately worried about this.

  4. The way the world ends not with a bang but a whimper

  5. 16k dying from flu a year that's only a little over 1k a month but its killed what like 3k in a month? And do we know of anyone who has had it, gotten over it and their body irradiated the virus entirely? I think that is kinda of a big deal I dunno just me I guess

  6. Stop comparing this to the flu. This thing spreads more readily and has a higher mortality rate. China didn’t shut down over the flu!

  7. Young healthy person more likely less infected? Dude put that person in third world country. 5 bites of mosquitoes and he be in ER .. lmao

  8. This is going to sound backwards, but TRUTH?

    REGULAR FLU/pneumonia kills 12%, and THIS thing only kills 3.5-4%!

    Run the math yourself. Of 5 million people that got flu/pneumonia, 650k died worldwide. That's about 12%.

    Meanwhile, the big bad VIRUS, (it is NOT a "plague," morons) kills only 3,000 of the 90k that have it. About 3.5-4%.

    You're BETTER OFF getting corona. By 3x!

  9. Those numbers need to be explained. 10 year mortality rate of flu in the US is 0.1%. So far COVID19 has killed about 2% of those who gotten it. That is 20x more deadly than flu so far. Consider what this number may look like in the next few months. Missing parts of the picture, today.

  10. If the masks aren't effective then why do we need to save them for the doctors? How dumb do you think people are?

  11. all travel to the US shouldve been cut off months ago. If you wanna leave fine, but let nobody in until the world deals with it

  12. The current situation really highlights the need to prioritize Medicare for All. Not tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy and exorbitant, wasteful military spending. Bernie 2020

  13. N95 masks are not effective for the general public because they are the dumbest most ignorant SOBs ever.

    General public can't even follow proper hygiene. Let alone proper use and disposal of N95 masks.

  14. If "it's a matter of math," how come y'all haven't figured the OBVIOUS? It's 3.5-4% death rate.

    Regular flu is TWELVE % death rate??

    They're scaring you ON PURPOSE.

  15. It's funny how they are down playing it. I'm currently living in one of the high risk countries. Most people who caught it will live (with decent treatment) but many will have permanent lung damage even if they are cured. It's more like a pneumonia than flu. Severity do vary from one person to another, we assume it's the virus' mechanism so that the ones that are relatively well off go around and be a spreader. It's better to be over than under prepared. Good luck.

  16. “They are not effective”… one and a half breaths later “the health professionals need them”

  17. It looks like the US is completely screwing this up. …… as usual. No travel bans. Interested more in money

  18. We can pull through Were Awesome stay Strong!!!! Money isn't as important as Life!!!

  19. We can pull through Were Awesome stay Strong!!!! Money isn't as important as Life!!!thanks all Medical Fr risking ur safely!!!!!!!!

  20. I went to 7 different stores over the weekend and they were all out of masks and hand sanitizer … https://youtu.be/QpLx_O0XbtU

  21. Government dropped the ball and is ill prepared for this pandemic…this is why you don’t elect an uneducated president who hires only uneducated sycophants. Get ready for hundred of thousands death in USA due to your uneducated ignorant president 😢

  22. Wtf that last reporter is giving false hopes when comparing to deaths of flu. CoVId-19is just starting and already 6. That reporter should be fired for misinformation

  23. Yo, do you hear yourself? When you are sick, you may not know it or have any symptoms and wearing a mask can stop other people around you from getting sick, so if you don’t have symptoms, but are sick, you need to wear a mask. Basically everyone who goes out, needs to wear a mask because you don’t know who is sick, even yourself. You don’t want to get sick or make others sick or this will not stop growing. How much clearer does it need to be? Is the lightbulb finally coming on? Have none of you been following what’s going on in other countries, this isn’t a different disease.

  24. That is BS… Masks are effective, would health professionals use them if they weren't. You just need to make sure to get n95 rated masks, make sure that both straps are secure and there is a snug fit all the way around the mask, no facial hair except for moustaches . bend the metal strip on the top to conform to your nose, do not touch the front of the mask when taking off a used mask, handle the mask by the straps only and discard. there, you have just been trained in the use of a respirator.

  25. News flash – Obese people are at a much higher risk of becoming severe cases. Guess who has the highest obese population? 'Merca. Buckle up sunshine. You aint seen nuttin yet.

  26. This is going to explode. By the end of the week, every state will have at least one dead from this virus. How do I know this? Super Tuesday. 14 states are about to shove thousands of people into shared, high traffic, voting booths. This will be dumb on steroids. The 1918 flu pandemic killed about 50 million worldwide and there were only a quarter as many people and they did not travel like today. Forget it. This is going to be far worse. Strap yourselves in.

  27. Us in 🇨🇳 we are not going anywhere apart from our homes, go subscribe to my YouTube channel and see how we do our online classes 📚

  28. Why so hard stop travel airport? Scientists find cure work for 24 hour find vaccine!!! Afraid insurance pay bill high! They don't have insurance. government should be free hospital many people has poverty or homeless too safe life they can. …

  29. Symptoms are rather mild? The info I’m reading in chinese does not say so. People can of course have mild symptoms but also at the same time may have crushing chest pains as if their ribs are all breaking. Also, the amount of fluids/phlegm stuck in the lower part of the lung makes it so difficult to breath like as if you are drowning. That’s the description I’m reading, in addition to the usual fever, bodyache, malaise, etc. what’s most concerning that I have seen are videos of people dropping dead like zombies. I read the reasons for that is your hyperactive immune system attacking your own heart, kidney and perhaps other vital organs to cause sudden death. All of that may be because in the epicenter there are so much more viruses floating around. But I don’t think it’s wise to underestimate this one. The true number of death may be much note than what is announced in China. Why else would they move in 40 Mobile incineration ovens…. https://www.newswars.com/china-deploys-40-mobile-incineration-ovens-labeled-for-disposal-of-animal-corpses/

  30. This is great advice my friends…

    The author of this coronavirus precautionary measures is James Robb, MD UC San Diego. It’s a really great read.

    Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic

    Dear Colleagues, as some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

    The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.

    Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

    1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

    2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

    3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

    4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

    5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

    6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home's entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can't immediately wash your hands.

    7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

    What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

    1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

    Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

    2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

    3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

    4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY "cold-like" symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

    I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

    I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! Jim

  31. Masks not effective? Drinking your rich owners Kool-Aid, for sure. These media people should just go get infected, and die with a reality check. Low life sellouts.

  32. So masks are not effective, but they need them for health professionals and the general public is wasting them. Folks – wake up. You are all about to experience the worst years of your life and for most you will wish you were dead.

  33. STOP EATING PIG /PORK and it will not affect you. Pig /Pork is not allowed to eat in any religion if you check the scriptures.

  34. Why did you thumbnail the 2 Asians? Americans picked up the virus from China, they went back to America infecting other Americans, there should be a discrimination against … not Asians

  35. So trump been lying to the American all this time, and the corona virus been in the USA for 6 weeks undetected

  36. They ask you not to wear a mask because your productive capacity can not fulfill your demands. And this going to make US gov look bad. We here in China produce 300 million mask per day and it’s still a shortage. We test it and cue the patient for free, while in the states ppl are ask to pay 3000 for a test. I’m wondering how are those 10% uninsured gonna survive from this virus if they got infected without a mask

  37. I’m happy if America economy go down, rents go down, house market, I can afford things hopefully so far China went down their economic situations and I’m tired America everything is expensive hopefully the cornovirus will help.

  38. Why do you care so much about the stock market? It only lines the pockets of our wealthy elite. Our wages remain stagnate no matter how well the market is doing.

  39. Reporter: "We have 18,000-40,000 people who die from seasonal flu"
    Me: ….. what the heck is the U.S. health care system doing?

  40. Testing is important but control of the spread of Covid-19 is of utmost importance. Maybe schools can be closed temporarily but allow online lessons. Encourage offices to allow staff to work at home when possible. In states affected by this Covid19 , disinfecting public entrances, buses and train stations will be a wise approach to contain the spread of this disease.

  41. Hahaha it’s just election time hahaha stupid people are scared the coronavírus and the flue kills much more every year hahaha so stupid hahaha fake news

  42. If the Mask are uneffective so why do they need them for health care workers !!!!!
    China was fining or arresting thier people for going out in public with out thier mask.
    The united states should have had many mask stock piled for health care workers and all the people of the United States it has been known for along time a epidemic like this could happen
    But they would rather spend tax payer money on lavish vacations. Being flown every where in government paid jets with many members of family and friends with fully stocked Bars alcohol that we pay for just ask PELOSI we paid for many trips all over the world for and her family.
    I soppose she is one of the reasons money wasmt spent for mask for the AMERICAN PEOPLE. CHINA HAS MANY MORE PEOPLE THAN WE DO AND CHINA HANDED OUT MASK TO THE PEOPLE.
    OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO GET ENOUGH MASK FOR THE AMERICAN ASAP !!#

  43. If those masks aren’t effective, why do medical professionals need them so bad?

    I call bs theres is something very wrong with this picture.
    Its like they want us to get the virus and die off.

  44. Since the Coronavirus is nothing but a virus that cause the common cold and the end of cold and flu season is near. A Vaccine has to happen this month because the Coronavirus will start disappearing next month. So if pharmaceutical companies want to cash in on this. They have to make a vaccine and tell us if we want to be saved from the common cold. Oops I'm sorry "epidemic". Our best defense is this Vaccine. Now we have to take a Coronavirus Vaccine and Flu every year. They're gonna cash out big time on the stupidity of the public. Investors will make money on the stock market crash. A lot of people are gonna be filthy rich off this fake common cold epidemic

  45. Them..dont use the masks,there not effective from catching the virous.
    Them again..the health care professionals need the masks.

  46. I think this virus has been around longer than we think. I was sick again with a second "cold" but my symptoms sound a lot like the virus. I was never tested, this happened back at the beginning of February so it wouldn't surprise me that this virus has been around longer than we think or know. My dad who lives in Utah just got over a cold which sounds a lot like this thing. So I'm just saying, there is probably a lot we don't know.

  48. If it’s so mild then why all the panic.. I don’t believe them I think it’s far worse than they are saying

  49. Problem is that the older news about mask that said they don’t prevent corvid-19; also said that N95 mask do help prevent getting the virus.

    So which is it?

    Cause i got a n95 for corvid-19, flu (multiple co workers have it), strep throat (1 co worker has it), and for fire season particles (cause cali likes to burn in the summertime).

  50. Ok a virus has no cure it's a virus…. So until next year soon this will be just a normal virus 😷 but we first need a vaccine bull 💩

  51. “Masks need to be reserved for healthcare providers” because they don’t help prevent infection…got it.

  52. Me: Mom, I got the coronavirus I think I'm dying

    My mom: You're still going to school. You're failing classes.

  53. It wouldn't surprise me if this was bioterrorism and somebody let this loose on purpose!
    That’s why America should do everything here instead having everything come from CHINAAAAAAAA!!!!!
    So you tell me is good year to buy car?

  54. I have already bought masks since January to mid-February. Even during that time, they were not easy to find and not a lot of stocks. I was not even able to buy surgical masks. I was able to get some N95s though. Nowadays, whenever I am in stores, I look for them and zero, nada, zip. Not a single one. Sanitizers are starting to dwindle as well. My local Walmart don't have them anymore, plastered that there are no more stocks to stop people from asking again and again. We don't even have a single confirmed case in my state yet.

  55. Speed and no vaccine make Covid-19 deadlier than flu at the moment. So stop comparing the two. Stop downplaying the risks! Young people got infected and died and they have the greater risk of transmitting it to other people because of their mild symptoms. Plus number of deaths jumping from 2 to 9 so fast is already a concern.

  56. Ayurvedic medicine is highly effective and sure short treatment for preventing outbreak of Corona Virus and other viral infection with the condition that medicines are taken before the Virus infects and grips ones metabolic system.

    I know a senior ayuvedic physician who has 40+ yrs exp and I always visits and take his medicine during Viral typhoid, Dengu and Chikangunia season and these infections have never gripped the people who takes these medicines.

    He said that if Ayurvedic medicine is taken precautionary thrice a week it will 100% immune one's body and the Virus despite its attack will not be able to infect the body of that person.

    The Ayurvedic medicine is no magic it works on simple logic that the herbs builds up your immunity such a way that the Virus is not able to infect your system and hence restrict the Virus to multiply in one's system.

  57. Next thing you know. School and business closes if it is a community spread. Why not tell people to buy N-95 face masks.
