Corona Virus & Diabetes - What you should know!

There are more than 1,00,000 people infected and 3500 dead. Most of the people those who died in corona virus attack were Diabetics and/or had CVD. It is true, the recovery rate is high and fatality rate is low...but look at those people sufferring and fighting for survival for weeks...and at the entire world economy getting affected. People stopped travelling... Factories closed...travel tourism industry badly affected....world stock market crashed fearing worldwide recession due to all business activities coming to a standstill and the uncertainty continues.....

Now it is official that ADA (American diabetic Association) and CDC (Center for disease control) and many such Reputed organisations have issued special precations/ guidelines for Diabetics to counter the Corona attack- few of the links are pasted at the bottom of this post ...

All Diabetics are being made aware that the immunity is low when blood sugar levels are high.... and if the immunity is low, naturally any virus or bacteria could attack easily and then it could lead to complications. In any case, the Diabetes itself is a complex disorder which gradually and simultaneously affects all other organs of the body with out exception....even without virus! πŸ˜€

And so it is not a surprise to have this news and a diabetic should not get scared...Follow the precautions and guidelines issued by ADA/ CDC, and corona will run away from you. Just ensure that your blood is not too sweet to attract the virus and multiply inside the sweet blood .....πŸ˜€

At the same time, ensure that your blood sugar does not become too low such that you don't need a Corona Virus to kill you!πŸ˜€

Jokes apart, please don't feel cursed being a Diabetic. Diabetics are known to live longer up to 80-90 years, as they become wiser and they are well informed during the course of their treatment, they consciously eat healthy food, exercise regularly...and take all precautions to keep themselves fit.

Coming back to our Corona virus which is reported to have attacked 1,00,000 people across the Globe....no country is spared....

Do you feel all Corona virus have come from China....there are several countries reported corona infection without any Chinese connection.... just originated locally and had spread in the community...please read a news article released in USA at the bottom of this message.....

It is logical, Corona is not a new virus...it was already there... It is everywhere..Omnipresent.....every one of us have had seasonal flu, cold, sneezing... All these are viral due to virus attack....the only thing is that the strains may be different......some are mild and some could be lethal....in the past we had Pandemic SARS- CoV and MERS- CoV both belong to Corona class of Virus...

This time this is a different strain of Corona virus with a different shape as seen in the microscope in Path lab...and so we called it Novel Corona virus- nCov (novel means not seen before), thereafter for convenience sake , we named it as Covid19 (means corona virus 2019- since detected in Dec 2019)......we should learn how to live with corona ..... Well, the pharma companies are quite upbeat.... They see a bright prospects for their business.... Pfizer, Abbott and Takeda pharma said they are already having medicines which could cure Covid 19... but they would need clinical trial.... Human trial.....USFDA approval etc etc.... No wonder the world stock market gave a thumbs up and the stock price of these companies went up by 15% only to fall by 15% the next day when people realised that it is a time taking process for final approval and pharma companies making huge profit.... People felt there would be a huge demand for anti-corona virus drugs...

Please have a look at the past history of virus attack on mankind as per WHO ( Please refer the graphical photo at the top of this post ).. so all virus SARS, MERS, H1N1, Nipah, Ebola, Avian Flu, Influenza..... have been originated from Animals & birds.....We don't seem to have learnt anything from the past.... even this time also it is believed to have been originated from similar animals and birds....

Please Refer an article released in USA for poultry farmers.....

Birds and animals are integral part of our society.... We rear animals & birds, we trade live stock- we kill them to eat their meat....as a source of protein and fat ...important Macronutrients.....

Rearing and trading of Livestock contributes to economy & GDP growth......look at what different people have said .... and they claim they all are right in their own perspective!

(1) Birds & Animals live for mankind...

(2) I can not survive even one day without eating some meat ! It gives me protein !

(3) Plant food has all the protein men need. No need to eat meat for protein

(4) Animal birds rearing contributes to Global warming and climate change....so I stopped eating meat....

(5) since the day I stopped eating meat, my incidences of flu attack has gone away....

(6) Poultry/ egg sales are down by 50% and the traders have no money for their living.....

(7)People quote several Studies to show that Meat is bad for health......

(8) Who said meat is bad for health- it is the plant food which is bad for health-.....

(9) Anyway, Virus keeps coming to reduce population of the world by taking away the old, aged and sick.. it is nature's way of wiping out the weed in the lawn .....

Conclusion: From WHO data, Virus is known to come from animals and birds and attack human beings and then spreading from human to human...

Corona virus is here to stay.... It would keep appearing in some form or other.....as long as Birds / animals form an integral part of our life.....yes there would be vaccinations......then there would be another Covid.....and then the search for new vaccinations....not to underestimate science .....and pharma business....

......As we evolve, may be after a decade or so, the factors which perhaps could change pepole' thnking on bird animal rearing for our food is climate change and Global warming.....

Thank you forposting this, namaha. I have created a new Corona Virus Topic and put it under it. Very interesting information. :-)

You have added an extra Zero to the official figures. 100,000 not 1,000,000

"The WHO told all countries to make containment 'their highest priority' as the global death toll reaches 3,000 with more than 100,000 confirmed cases"

Correctly written dear!

The coma looks like a zero 😊

1,00,000

Your post:

** There are more than 1,00,000 people infected and 3500 dead.**

Still looks like a million my dear:-)

Hello seasider18 you are both saying the same thing, namaha said over 100,000 and you are saying it looks like 1,000,000 when it doesnt, so please lets not get personal and focus on protecting each other fromn COVID19

If you want to be pedantic 100,000 in 10 to the power of 5 and 1000,000 is 10 to the power of 6.

If it looks like a million to me it will to others and cause undue concern.

Please always count the number of Zero's.

As Jerry said, 1 million will have Six Zero's or noughts.

I have said 1,00,000 which has 5 Zero's. In words it is called as "one hundred thousands". This is the correct number...the actual data. The coma is given for easy of counting the zeros ...

1 million is ten hundred thousands..written as 10,00,000 which has six zeros's.

it seems that people in different countries use the comma in different places from the UK.

Who write like this?

Ten: 10 (1 zero)

Hundred: 100 (2 zeros)

Thousand: 1000 (3 zeros)

Ten thousand 10,000 (4 zeros)

Hundred thousand 100,000 (5 zeros)

Million 1,000,000 (6 zeros)

Billion 1,000,000,000 (9 zeros)

Trillion 1,000,000,000,000 (12 zeros)

Dear Sandy

πŸ‘Agree. In case of doubt with coma, always count the number of Zero's , you can not go wrong !

We are not only in different continents but in different maths world.

In India, Pakistan and South Asia, one hundred thousand is called a lakh, and is written as 1,00,000. The Thai, Lao, Khmer and Vietnamese languages also have separate words for this number: แΰΈͺΰΈ™, ແΰΊͺΰΊ™, αžŸαŸ‚αž“ [saen] and α»©c respectively. The Malagasy word is hetsy. No other major language has a special word for this number, preferring to refer to it as a multiple of smaller numbers.

In Cyrillic numerals, it is known as the legion (Π»Π΅Π³ΠΈΠΎΠ½): or .

But in Europe and America:

Where are you from ?

When does the (,) start?

"Nearly 4,000 people with the virus are now confirmed to have died and more than 110,000 have been infected"

Latest 111,650 cases and 3,886 death.

Hello,

Have you found answers to you question on Coronavirus?

The question is who is giving the correct information. People in retirement have to be very careful in many ways. If we have any existing health conditions, the best think is to go for protection.

UK, Government is not going to do much in the way of fast track, they can have meeting after meeting, tick the box. News report says there is no check for people coming into the country.

I read researchers are looking for volunteers to get infected for research and there is payment. One of the last drug test in UK ended up very bad, I wonder how many retired people will go for it.

I'm 85 and have T2, an artificial aortic valve, AF and a 4.2cm aortic aneurysm plus neuropathy caused by Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome but I am a survivor

Sir,

Thank you for your response. I have brother very well educated and who is 90+. Please enjoy one life. I learned to count numbers from Railway track stones!!!!

We have a shingle beach for me to practice on. However the tide washes it down the coast and dredgers bring it back for bulldozers to spread back as flood defence.

Sir,

What engineering degree did you do, a charted engineer?

Take care of your health, enjoy the sea air.

1,000,000 (one million), or one thousand thousand, is the natural number following 999,999 and preceding 1,000,001. The word is derived from the early Italian millione (milione in modern Italian), from mille, "thousand", plus the augmentative suffix -one.

I am writing the figure of 1,000,000 in a presentation but finding that my style guide clashes with what looks right.

'Million' must be spelled out.

'Β£' must be used instead of 'pounds'.

Numbers one to ten must be written out and not expressed in numerals.

As such, it appears that I should present 1,000,000 as Β£one million but this looks so odd.

What is more than 1,000,00? Is WHO giving the correct information?

Could you please give the link to the history photo. Thanks
