Have You Ever Thought About The Survivors Of Coronavirus?

19th March update on coronavirus according to worldometer

I was going through the updates on coronavirus and the number of survivors vs that of deaths hit me. It occurred to me that the number of people surviving this disease way outnumbers the people who die of it. In addition there is drastic reduction in new deaths.

Many people are recovering from the dreaded coronavirus pandemic disease and it seems that very few of us are talking about them.

I keep asking myself this question; why ain’t many of the people who have recovered coming up with their recovery stories so that people who are scared will have it at the back their minds that recovery is possible for this pandemic.

I’m saying this because right now in my neighbourhood, coronavirus is regarded as a disease that gives no hope for survival. We believe that since the cure insnt yet available, that once you have it, your grave should better be dug.

I was opprotuned to see Dr. Jennifer Caudle’s video this morning and I’m convinced about the good news.

The good news is, we can recover from this once our immune is strong enough. Once the symptom is treated, the patient can go on with their normal lives. It’s important to note that as we take preventive measures to avoid this virus, to also keep our immune system strong.

I guess a handful of people already know this – that have a great chance of recovering from coronavirus. That’s why they are seen on the streets when they are supposed to be inside their houses.

In a nutshell

People should hear more about the recovery from coronavirus even as they are trying hard not to get the virus.

They should know that getting the virus doesn’t mean they’re going to die. People have survived and they too can survive if they get infected.

  1. I have heard the message, but I don’t know that it’s really getting through all that well to people. Yes, the vast majority of people who get this virus will do just fine. Some won’t really even know they have been sick, while others will be mildly inconvenienced by fever and a lingering cough. The problem is that it spreads really easily and if people are too relaxed about it, then healthcare systems get overwhelmed because there are enough people that will need advanced care, most of them with other underlying health issues already, that we won’t be able to offer care to all who need it if everyone gets sick at once. That’s when the death rate will increase and when we might be forced to make terrible decisions like, Grandma can’t be put on a ventilator because this otherwise healthy 40-year-old mother of three also needs it and there’s only one. We don’t want to have to make that choice because it is a heartbreaking one. That’s why we stay home. So, I guess if we are a little scared that we all might die, that’s not the worst thing in the world if that’s what it takes for us to approach this seriously. Because some of us will die. Not a very large “some” of us, but the more seriously we take it, the smaller that “some” can be.

    1. Thank you, Sarah. I appreciate your explanation. I understand we need people to be scared enough to be able to stay home and away from the virus because if they don’t, a lot of people are going to get it and as a result, the healthcare system will be overwhelmed leading to more deaths. My fear though is that panic is not good thing. People suffer psychologically and while some can actually die of panic – excessive fear of death. That’s why it’s good to let them know that having the virus doesn’t mean that they are dead already.
