Get the facts on coronavirus

Get the facts on coronavirus

So we need to get the facts straight. How
does this virus work, how does it transmit, where does it want to go and
let’s protect ourselves. I’m Dr. Peter Lin. I’m a family physician in Toronto,
Canada. The coronavirus is a family of viruses that can cause as mild things as
just a common cold, all the way up to SARS or MERS. These are these bad
pneumonias that we’re talking about and basically what these viruses are they
look like a tennis ball with all these spikes sticking out of it and depending
on the type of spike, it allows that virus to attach to certain places. So
some viruses they have this spike that attaches to your nose. So basically you just get a common cold. But the SARS virus and this new virus
that we’re talking about has the spike that allows it to attach to the cells in
your lung and when it attaches there it puts in information to make photocopies
of itself. So it uses our equipment to make more viruses.>>I’m declaring a public health emergency of international concern over the global outbreak of novel coronavirus.>>Most of the coronaviruses live in
animals. In this particular case, it was from Wuhan, there was a fish market where they were selling live animals and the thought is that the virus was in a live
animal, then it crossed into a human, but then what we found was that people were
getting sick in terms of healthcare workers, in terms of family members that
were looking after them, which now meant that the virus can pass from human to
another human. Just like all viruses, it needs to reach a target, which is your
lung, and it has to get there with your help. It has no feet and no wings. So
therefore it needs us to move it there. So that’s why we keep saying don’t hang
around sneezy people because you’re gonna breathe it in and don’t touch your
face because that’s how the virus is gonna get in. The masks are helpful, but
they’re not necessary because they’re leaky. The ones that you and I buy
basically have pockets here so therefore the virus can get in. What the masks
really do is they stop us from touching our face. If you’re sick, we tend to mask
you, so therefore you’re not spewing out the viruses to other people sitting
around you. The true people that have the real masks are the N95. Those are sealed. These are for the doctors that may be caring for the patients. So in the beginning the coronavirus will cause kind of like flu-like symptoms or a cold, so people just get the stuffy nose that kind of thing. But you’ll understand that
as soon as that virus starts manufacturing in your lung cells, they’re
producing all these copies of the virus and all of a sudden now you kill the lung
cells. So now you can’t exchange oxygen and that’s why one of the early symptoms
is people get very short of breath and they tend to have a difficult time
breathing and that’s why they end up in hospital. So currently unfortunately we
don’t have a direct treatment for the coronavirus, so we don’t have a
medication that can kill it off and so it’s really supportive. So in other words,
the patient can’t breathe we give them oxygen to help them to breathe, they can’t
drink so therefore we give them fluids to support them. Their kidneys begin to
shut down, we help them with all those things. So it’s a very supportive process. This is a new virus that we’ve never seen before, so our immune system, our
army, are having a hard time figuring out what to do. So usually what we have to do
is we make something called antibodies so these are things that can grab on to
the spikes that we see on the virus and it’ll get rid of the virus for you and
that will actually bring you back to good health. So therefore the elderly may have a worse outcome and of course the young
children, the babies, their immune system is not so good either so they may
not make those antibodies as well. So just remember your hands may be with
virus. Virus cannot hurt you because it can’t get through the skin, but the
moment I do this, now I’ve brought the virus right to where it wants to go. So
let’s remember not to touch our hands to our face. So let’s say you think that you
might have been on a plane or you might have bumped into somebody that has it,
what should you do? So the first thing is to contact a health care worker to tell
them that potentially you have it. If you’re feeling symptoms and you’re gonna
go into a facility, call ahead. OK. So whether you’re calling the paramedics or
whether you’re calling the hospital or your doctor, just mention that you were
on a flight. If you don’t have any symptoms, then what we do is a little bit
of a self-quarantine. In other words we can just keep you away from other people
and so you don’t go in to parties, don’t go with your friends, don’t go into
public transportation. So we can contain it very easily by making sure that you
do a self-confinement so to speak, for the let’s say 7 to 14 days is the
longest incubation time. So after that, if you’re feeling well, then you don’t have
anything to worry about. If we get the facts right, then we don’t
have to be overly worried, but we do the right things so that we don’t get the
virus ourselves, and that we don’t pass it on to others. And if we
look after each other in this way, this virus will have nowhere to go.
It needs us to move it, it needs us to make copies for it, and if we don’t help
it, then the virus will stop. So we have the power to do that, right now.

What does this symbol actually mean? – Adrian Treharne

Some of the world’s most recognizable
symbols exist to sell products, others to steer traffic or advance political causes. But there’s one whose main purpose
is to help people. You may know it as the wheelchair symbol,
or a sign for people with disabilities, but its formal title as maintained
by the ISO is the International Symbol of Access. But despite its familiarity, many people are unclear as to what
the symbol actually means, which has a lot to do with the symbol
itself and the way it came about. In 1968, the International Commission
on Technology and Accessibility held a design contest. They were looking for a symbol that would be readily identifiable
from a reasonable distance, self-descriptive, simple, practical, and couldn’t be confused
with existing signage. The winning design,
which didn’t have a head, was created by a Danish designer
named Susanne Koefed. The addition of a head a year later
gave it a more human form, and within ten years, it was endorsed by both the United Nations
and the ISO. With minimal cost and minimal fuss,
a global icon was born. There have been a few tweaks
over the decades. The Graphic Artists Guild added more
rounded, human-like features, and in 2012, the Accessible Icon Project
produced a more dynamic version. But what does it really represent? What’s its purpose? Put simply, it’s a sign to identify where
there are accessible facilities. The strength of such an internationally
recognized image is that wherever you travel, you don’t need to speak the language
or have in-depth cultural knowledge. If you require an accessible toilet,
the sign shows the way. But the confusion comes
from the term accessibility and what that actually means. Many people assume that because
the symbol depicts a wheelchair, that accessible facilities are meant
only for people who use wheelchairs, or those, at the very least,
who have a visible physical condition. But accessibility is a broad concept that applies to many,
many different conditions. That includes people with autism, visual impairments, and autoimmune diseases, like lupus, which can cause
pain and fatigue, along with many other conditions. In fact, the World Health
Organization estimates that there are approximately
1 billion people who experience some form of disability, which means that this group is very
likely to include yourself, or a family member, a classmate, a friend, or a work colleague. And people who use wheelchairs only
make up about 65 million, or 15% of the total. The vast majority
have non-visible disabilities. Accessible parking spaces, facilities,
and entrances are designed with
that entire group in mind. So it’s easy to see why in recent years
people have begun to raise questions about whether the symbol is really
appropriate for what it’s meant to do. And it’s not just about accuracy. It’s common for people
to become indignant, sometimes abusive, when they see people without visible
disabilities using accessible facilities. The symbol is unfortunately creating
widespread issues for the very people and families
it’s meant to help. The recent redesigns have attempted
with some success to acknowledge concerns
over the current symbol. But some think that a complete redesign
is in order. It’s a difficult task, though. How do you replace a symbol
that’s familiar the world over? And what do you replace it with?
