    Yes, this virus is not a joke .. the young are dying .. Yesterday I read the article that BCG vaccinations somehow affect mortality .. those who did not do them, die more often .. Italy, USA, these vaccines were not given. In Russia, they did everything to us, especially who was born in the USSR.

      Really curious!

      And about the Americans ... They say they have a whole aircraft carrier on isolation itself.

      And the pilots get sick. Probably transported.

        U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. Only not on self-isolation, but on quarantine.
        And already, it seems, he is not alone.

        Fox News first reported a couple of COVID-19 cases among the Reagan team on March 27, 2020.

        The naval base outside Tokyo, where the Reagan is currently at the dock, is now closed for the weekend.

      BCG I remember! The injection was painful, the injection site didn’t give rest for half a year, then the sore will appear round, then it will disappear, you will accidentally touch a sharp pain.

      The trouble is that this parasite, a virus, mutates. The virus that was in China and Italy, it is different.

      It is believed that BCG makes the human body resistant not only to tuberculosis, but also to other pulmonary infections.

    Why do they report only those who died from coronavirus and forget the usual flu?

    In Europe, the situation is like a black joke - "a man got hit by a train and died of coronavirus ..."

      Yes, it’s not for the malice of the day because it will not raise ratings, sales, comments. Everything in the world has come down to hype and chernukha, humanity is moving straight into the hole surrounded by the strongest muscle, with tenacity worthy of another use, laying its way into Instagrams.

      Because even in Germany, the number of cases of pneumonia (of any etiology) does not exceed the number of those in past years.

    And the virus does not give a damn about the captain of the National Guard, the general, the senator, or just the homeless. Given the fact that the infection was detected in the army and navy, where the personnel are arranged in units (crews) and live in barracks (cockpits), then everything is still ahead.

    In an exclusively country of the world, a military soldier, an assistant to the medical service, died a lot, fought for the lives of others and left himself, that’s where the people are! , doctors, and it was rightly said by one like an Italian doctor, you pay 1800 € a month to doctors and 18000 € to the players, so let them treat you, eternal memory to all the doctors who laid down their lives in the name of saving others!

      a military outcome, a medical assistant, took place, fought for the lives of others and left,

      This military doctor is worthy of all respect ... He did not kill, like most Yankees in khaki. He fought with death ... But "The Lady with the Scythe" was more cunning ...
      I feel sorry for such Yankees, unlike those who sow democracy around the world.
      Even where they were not called.

    I am deeply saddened by the death of Army Captain Douglas Lynn Hickock, an assistant physician and National Guard of New Jersey associated with COVID-19. All of us in the National Guard are grateful for his service to our people as a citizen and as a soldier
    That is, he was a "liquidator" ... It's a pity. And my condolences to his loved ones.
    Against the background of all this, once again I wish our guys in Italy to return home without loss

    All the same, coronavirus (like all sores) affects, first of all, people with weakened immunity.
    Maybe the captain was one of them. Who will give a guarantee that in case of an increased nervous situation in 10 days in the infectious diseases department you will not receive any other "gift".

      So far, something like this:
      Moscow. March 25. INTERFAX.RU - The decision on the possible cancellation of the parade on May 9 this year in connection with the situation with the coronavirus has not yet been made, said spokesman for the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.

      "The issue is undoubtedly being discussed, while no decisions have been made, preparation continues," he told reporters, answering the relevant question.

      "The decision on whether to hold a parade or not, and if it is, in what format, has yet to be made, taking into account how the epidemiological situation will develop," Peskov added.

      Answering the question of whether the parade can pass without spectators, Peskov noted: "The situation forces us to be flexible, so we probably shouldn't talk about what is possible now."

      "It is possible and necessary to do everything in such a way that, on the one hand, we pay tribute to the memory of the heroism of our people, our country, but, on the other hand, do not endanger the health of our people," added the presidential press secretary.

      Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on March 25 that preparations for the Victory Parade were being held as planned. According to the agency, the personnel who will take part in the parade underwent an in-depth medical examination. In preparation for the event, measures have been taken to combat coronavirus. In particular, bactericidal ultraviolet lamps were installed, a stock of disinfectants, medicines and personal protective equipment was created in the places of residence of the parade participants - in military units of the Moscow garrison and educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense.
