According to Oxford university’s Vaccine Knowledge Project, an average of 600 people in the UK die from the flu per year.

The figures are subject to peaks and troughs, as the project noted deaths increased to 13,000 during 2008-2009.


I'd worry more about the regular flu.

Coronavirus & Face masks = not effective!

Youtube Video

Dr Jake Dunning, head of emerging infections and zoonoses at Public Health England, said:

Quote:
Although there is a perception that the wearing of facemasks may be beneficial, there is in fact very little evidence of widespread benefit from their use outside of these clinical settings.

Dr David Carrington, of St George's, University of London told BBC:

Quote:
…routine surgical masks for the public are not an effective protection against viruses or bacteria carried in the air…

What about Face masks while in Ihram?

Quote:
Over 2 millions people congregate in Mecca every year to perform Hajj. Pilgrims are exposed to air-borne transmitted disease during this overcrowding period. Several measures have been practiced to reduce the spread of disease particularly the respiratory tract related infection. One of the preventive measures is by using face mask. Nevertheless, the use of face mask among pilgrims is shown to be only partially effective. This is attributed to the knowledge on the air borne transmitted disease, attitude towards wearing, technique of application, and to some extent the design of the face mask itself.

Indonesia says lack of coronavirus cases a blessing from God


JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's health minister defended the country's screening process for coronavirus and said the absence of confirmed cases in the world's fourth-most populous nation was a "blessing from the Almighty".

The sprawling Southeast Asian country of more than 260 million people has not recorded any cases though some of its citizens overseas have contracted the virus, including eight crew on the Diamond Princess cruise liner off Japan's Yokohama.

Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto said 134 test samples taken from people suspected of having the coronavirus had turned out negative.

"If until this second all came out negative, then it's a blessing from the Almighty," he told reporters.

Putranto said tests on two patients who died this week after suffering symptoms associated with contracting the virus had been negative.

On Feb. 23, a Singaporean man died after reportedly suffering fever and shortness of breath in the city of Batam, but the head of the local health agency said this was due to another unspecified disease.

The death of a 37-year-old man in Semarang in Central Java who was suffering pneumonia after returning from overseas was not caused by the coronavirus, but by H1N1 flu, he said.

Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in the United States, said in a study this month that Indonesia should strengthen outbreak surveillance and control - especially as it had direct flights from the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak.

The Harvard team said Indonesia's lack of confirmed cases "may suggest the potential for undetected cases" as air travel may contribute to cases being exported from China.

UK schools should do the same

Quote:
Schools across the UK are taking action to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

Multiple schools around the county visited hot-spots for the virus over February half-term, raising fears they could have contracted the rapidly spreading virus.

At the time of writing this introduction, some have closed while others have sent pupils home for fear they may have caught coronavirus from ski trips to northern Italy, where 229 people have tested positive and seven have died.

www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/local-news/live-updates-cor...

Quote:
It’s easy to see why headteachers would think that closing schools would help prevent outbreaks. Schools – after all – are notorious hotbeds for viruses. “It’s been well identified from past respiratory virus outbreaks that schools are potentially an intense breeding ground for amplification of viruses and then, importantly, onward spread to the rest of the community,” says Jonathan Ball, professor of molecular virology at the University of Nottingham.

In addition to the Dua posted by Wifaqul Ulama (the same Dua that was shared during Mad Cow Disease, Bird Flu etc etc)

Make Wudhu regularly and properly!
(This is covering the advise given by the medics and more)

Although face masks may not be helpful, it is a good time for the sisters to don the niqab and gloves :)

Everything the Non Muslims wanted to take away from the sisters can now be brought back!

Scotts worked on a cure since January. They made great progress within 3 hours. They may have something going out in April (I was going to post about this a couple of weeks ago, but since it was linked to Trump, along with other garbage, I had to dismiss it as nonsense)

Quote:
A Scottish scientist at the forefront of developing a coronavirus vaccine has told STV she is 'very excited' about the results so far.


(This twitter account Laura Yang has also posted inside videos of Muslims and their plight in China, has been informative)

Trump's version was nonsense.
He quit listening to what the Doctors were saying and seized on those few words as a proof.
The CDC Doctors said they might have a vaccine to begin testing in a few months, but it would be 1 -1 1/2 years before it would be ready for mass production.
And that's IF it worked.

I read that Indonesia wasn’t effected because of the warm weather. Will have to wait and see if the temp change in uk will make a difference. Although there is nothing to say the virus will not return every winter.

Anyone heard about the dream of coronavirus from a Bengali brother of Italy, or something like that.

Apparently it's doing the rounds and gone viral. Narrated by Mufti Abdur Rahim Limbada.

Allah knows best man!

Let it remain a dream.

Dreams are of three types: rahmaani (those that come from Allaah), nafsaani (psychological, they come from within a person) and shaytaani (those that come from the Shaytaan). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Dreams are of three types: a dream from Allaah, a dream which causes distress and which comes from the Shaytaan, and a dream which comes from what a person thinks about when he is awake, and he sees it when he is asleep.”

(al-Bukhaari, 6499; Muslim, 4200)

Generally I used to find many posts shared on the Shaikh's social media accounts which contained incorrect news/information. It seems the posts weren't verified before sharing. He doesn't post as much these days.

Can't comment on this incident.

Could it really be that this NY Times book predicted #COVIDー19 39 years ago?

The similarities surely are overwhelming but let’s hope it’s only just a panic-inducing coincidence.






I don't wish to post the tweet because she uses various photos on her profile pic - She has posted some info about the Muslims in China and has called for help, hence the alert pop ups, although not following - for the record :(
