Well, from an epidemiological standpoint, it is a nightmare Coronavirus 2020 Radiology Nurse strong shirt. It has a long latency period, survives really well for a virus in the environment and doesn’t kill readily. You heard me. One of the biggest threats posed by this bugger is that it doesn’t kill easily. Viruses that kill easily, like Ebola, hemorrhagic smallpox and Lassa, for example, scare people. They stay home, the victims die, but especially with short lived/fragile viruses it’s over quickly and the living get back to their lives and the dead don’t care. It will probably turn chronic. Not fun to have another vaccine resistant bug around, this one most likely transmissible by air.
Now when you have the opposite Coronavirus 2020 Radiology Nurse strong shirt, people don’t hole up, they pass it around and don’t work as hard. This is why Malaria is such an albatross around the necks of countries where it’s endemic. Not because it kills, but because it makes people just sick enough they don’t get that last few percent in where all the profit lies and not sick enough to stay home and not pass it around. So yes, it could be nothing, but in primitive countries where people have to work no matter what, if this beastie reproduces well.
