@Well Damn! I lost the

@Well Damn! I lost the great reply on how the two virus were the same. I did a search and discovered...... Well.... same family anyway....

How does COVID-19 differ from SARS?
Interesting fact, SARS (Covid 2) was more deadly. Covid 19 spreads more easily.

JUST STUFF I THOUGHT WAS INTERESTING

It’s estimated that 20 percentTrusted Source of people with COVID-19 will need to be hospitalized for treatment. A smaller percentage of this group will need mechanical ventilation.

SARS cases were more severe, in general. It’s estimated that 20 to 30 percent Trusted Source of people with SARS required mechanical ventilation.

Estimates of the mortality rate of COVID-19 vary greatly depending on factors like location and the characteristics of a population. Generally speaking, mortality rates for COVID-19 have been estimated to range between 0.25 and 3 percent.

SARS is much more deadly than COVID-19. The estimated mortality rate is about 10 percent.

Molecular factors:
A recent studyTrusted Source of the complete genetic information (genome) of SARS-CoV-2 samples found that the virus was more closely related to bat coronaviruses than the SARS virus. The new coronavirus has a 79 percent genetic similarity to the SARS virus.

If the new coronavirus indeed has a higher binding affinity for its host cell receptor, this could also explain why it appears to spread more easily than the SARS virus.

VERY INTERESTING POST - I don't remember who wrote it because I went on a search for information after reading it. Sorry I didn't reference you.

Thanks... I thought this was the most helpful post yet.

I am reposting a response to you in a thread conversation we have been having from earlier in the thread...here it is...

"I just realized, Covid 2 is SARS not Covid 19 Corona virus. The study tests the wrong virus."

Oh great one, did your advisors once work for trump? Either way, fire them, as you are presently pulling a trump.

SARS-CoV-2 is the official name for the pathogen/virus that is causing the present pandemic. COVID-19 is the name of the disease it causes. SARS/MERS/COVID-19 are all diseases for a specific type of pathogen/virus called coronovirus, a zoonotic virus with specific characteristics. The present disease is abbreviated to COVID-19, which means in full, COronoVIrus Disease 20(19).

"Where does it say that what eliminates or sanitizes covit 2 will work on covid 19."

They are the same thing.

Hand sanitizer is an excellent means of making all coronovirus unable to infect human cells...there may be residual virus still on the hands, but not functional. The only real issue, is the thirty seconds that is needed to continually rub the sanitizer into both hands, to effectively reach all possible virus. I have seen frontline staff, applying sanitizer, for mostly about 10 seconds, prior to moving to the next patient. I have had to educate nearly every front line staff that I have seen...period...to modify there sanitizer use to over thirty seconds.

Thanks doG: I had a great

Thanks doG: I had a great read out of your last post. I wrote a reply someplace. Same family and nearly the same thing, you are correct. Some very interesting differences. Did you know SARS, Covid 2, was more deadly? Quite a few very interesting points came up while looking at a comparison between the two virus.

YOU GET THE AWARD: Best comment so far. I read some interesting information because of it. Thanks!

There have been three overly deadly outbreaks of corona virus in somewhat recent history...all originating from a bat virus in china.

The first virus was named the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus, or abbreviated, SARS CoV. This occurred in late 2002. It did not spread,quickly as it put infected people in bed/hospital over night...where they stayed. The mortality rate for this virus was about 15%-17%. More lethal than our present pandenic pathogen. It killed people quickly and made the survivors, sick and bed ridden, which hampered its ability to spread well. It has killed 7K people worldwide thus far.

The second virus was named the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus, or abbreviated, MERS CoV. This occurred in 2012. It did not spread,quickly as it put infected people in bed/hospital over night...where they stayed. The mortality rate for this virus was about 34%. Much more lethal than SARS CoV, and our present pandenic pathogen. It killed people quickly and made the survivors, very sick and hospitalized, which hampered its ability to spread well. It has killed 842 people worldwide, thus far.

The present virus was named the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus 2, or abbreviated, SARS CoV-2. The like name because genetics has shown it to be 96-98% identical to its namesake. This virus started in late 2019. It spread quickly, as its effects are less debilitating than the previous two, with symtomatology resembling the seasonal flu. Infected people remained ambulatory, thus effectively spreading it well across the globe. The mortality rate is a guess for this virus presently but less than the others...however due to its transmissibility, has infected many more people, thus killing more. It kills people who's lungs or respiratory system are compromized by co-morbidities...diabetes, heart disease and lung disease being positively identified. It has killed over 250K people worldwide thus far. It will likely continue to kill 4-5000 people every day for the next six months, as the initial wave increases and then subsides...if we continue the lockdown. If we don't continue the lockdown, the death toll will be much much worse.

Anywho, I digress...
Oh great chimpness, I think you may have been misinformed of the names of these corona viruses. The present virus is called SARS CoV-2. The corona virus in 2012 is called MERS CoV...and the virus back in 2002 was called SARS CoV. Just a heads up, oh great one.

Ahhh.... Covid 19 is a

Ahhh.... Covid 19 is a nickname after the year. It has nothing to do with the name of the virus! NO WONDER I CAN'T FIND ANY FUCKING RESEARCH!!!!!

On the up side, I have read a shitload of articles.

YEA!!!! THE FUCKING WORLD MAKES SENSE AGAIN!!!

"Naming the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the virus that causes it
Official names have been announced for the virus responsible for COVID-19 (previously known as “2019 novel coronavirus”) and the disease it causes. The official names are:

Disease: coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Virus: severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)

FUCK! JUST KNOWING THAT COULD HAVE SAVED ME A WHOLE LOT OF FUCKING WORK: I'M STICKING TO PSYCHOLOGY. THIS MEDICAL SHIT IS CONFUSING AS HELL!

All of this from the WHO! Why? Because I wasn't asking the right fucking question. Fuck me.... I'm going back to my banana tree.

Lol...

Lol...
I love brain burps! I get them all the time when I wade into areas I want to know about. Ahhh, the Corvid-19 name has one lady in Facebook say “of course it’s man made, ask yourself, what happened to 1-18?”

Like Windows, I guess we updated it!

Ahhh, such fun figuring shit out :)
