Do you agree that we are suffering from a real crisis globally with Corona virus ? In your opinion, how can we face this crisis?
In light of the circumstances in the world today, we see situations of fear, apprehension, and caution filling the continents in light of the spread of this epidemic. Sometimes we ask ourselves about the reason for the spread of this epidemic, and some of us start blaming others about its spread and its invasion of the countries of the world, whether these countries are developed or developing, and we find ourselves powerless in front of this very small creature that does not see under the light microscope but rather under the electron microscope. Then we go back to ask how it spread and how it developed itself to be so strong. Is the reason is food habits and that it has moved from the original host has snakes and bats to humans, in my area as a scientist in the field of bacteria, when bacteria move to a place other than the place of their natural presence it may turn from commensals bacteria to pathogens. Was this the reason, or are we in a real confrontation between the creature that God has honored (human being) with the smallest creature which is the virus? Perhaps the presence of this challenge is a test for us from the Creator to show us that whatever we have reached in science and whatever we have evolved, we are unable to face the smallest creature he has. How much we harmed each other, how much we have forgiven our accomplishments and how much we have suffered from each other's injustice, but today we are powerless in front of this so little creature. So, in your opinion, how can we face this epidemic?
Dear Dr. Manal Hadi Kanaan, this question, though asked a year back, still has relevance and standing the test of time. I endorse the views of Dr Mubashir Ali Rather. Need change in the habits. Warm regards Yoganandan G
Yes, we are suffering from a real crisis at the global level with the Corona virus .. As for how to face this crisis, it is related to the speed of discovering the vaccine for this virus and until its discovery, remains, the home stone the only solution to limit its spread, in addition to the food rich in zinc to raise immunity as well as foods rich in vitamin A,E and C
Dear Dr. Emad Kamil Hussein Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you we should adhere to these health regulations wherever we are to avoid spreading the infection as much as possible. Thanks.
Dear Dr. Ibtisam Sodani Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you, fear of this virus due to the lack of a vaccine against it, it is known that viruses are constantly developing themselves so it is difficult to find vaccines against them. Therefore, we must work to strengthen the immune system as much as possible because effective treatment against viruses is the immune interferon compounds, strengthening immunity not only with foods that support immunity but also our desire to resist the disease because our immune system is weakened if we feel defeated by the disease.
Dear Dr. Vadim S. Gorshkov Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. We must accept God’s judgment, ability, and pray that this scourge is lifted from us, because whatever our work and whatever knowledge and technology we possess, God’s will remains above human beings. And if we are destined to die because of this epidemic, then it is the Judgment of God, and we believe in Him and His Judgment, just as we believe that He who heals the sick is desolate and that the inability of medicine to recover them. واذا مرضت فهو يشفين
Dear Dr. Abdelkader BOUAZIZ Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you. We must accept God’s judgment, ability, and pray that this scourge is lifted from us.
Yes, COVID-19 can be termed as a global crisis. It will prevail for few years with negative impacts on global economy and politics. It will bring a lot of changes across the 🌐. Such as digital currency will become common, international flight will become limited. e-Trade and e-commerce will become common.
Maybe some countries, whose economic fundamentals are not strong, will suffer an economic crisis within their country. But, for a country with a strong economy, it might actually benefit from the outbreak of the Convid-19 virus. I don't know yet how to overcome this economic crisis, because this is a macroeconomic problem, where we personally will not be able to do much.
Dear Dr. Ashok Pundir Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you. In addition to this, we need to pray to the God to pay this scourge from us and to help each other, we are going through a very difficult time there are many poor people who do not have a financial income and they earn their strength daily so we need solidarity among us to cross this crisis safely.
Dear Dr. Nazaruddin Sinaga Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you. So, we should help each other, we are going through a very difficult time there are many poor people who do not have a financial income and they earn their strength daily so we need solidarity among us to cross this crisis safely.
Crises unite people and make us feel each other when I was young in the first stage of the College of Veterinary Medicine. The Gulf War broke out and the study stopped for four months. At that time, we were suffering from a real crisis in Iraq, life stopped and Iraq faced a very difficult period and when the war ended the Intifada began and many people were killed. At that time, we lost hope of returning to life after it was completely disrupted. Then gradually, the life back and we returned to the College, when I felt great joy when I saw my colleagues fine and as if they were my brothers and they are not colleagues only until now I remember how much joy I felt when I saw everyone okay. In our country, we faced a lot, but we have always endured and overcome, and I hope that we will stand today and overcome this crisis not only in Iraq but also in the whole world to pray and invoke the God to help us overcome this crisis and to have mercy on us with his vast mercy that expanded everything.
I tried to sort out what I knew about SARS-CoV-19. The virus is an RNA virus and has an envelope. In particular, spike proteins are incorporated into the human body's ACE2 receptor, invading the cell membranes, especially of the respiratory tract, causing pneumonia, leading to severe disease and death. The most individual benefit is to eliminate the infection route outside the body, and to perform hand washing, gargling, and nasal washing each time when going out and in contact with humans. Secondly, the mask may be effective against external droplet infection. It is also effective not to spread cough and runny nose to others. It is known that the virus can be killed if the lipid part of the envelope can be removed. ( Horowitz, B. et al. : Transfusion, 25: 516-522, 1985.)
First. Stop unnecessary going out, don't get yourself infected, don't infect others. Regarding what to do if infected, there seems to be no effective treatment for this pneumonia at this time. In fact, the lack of a specific treatment is a pandemic that makes people anxious. There seems to be no reliable test for infection. PCR is primarily a research method intended for research purposes, and it is not an early definitive diagnosis, so it is necessary to have a test method that can distinguish between infection and onset. For example, consider that the relationship between AIDS and HIV is similar. In considering the SDGs, we want to create an era where testing and treatment should be one. In my opinion, I would like to collaborate with researchers worldwide on the sugar chains of the envelope, and seek a sugar chain testing method and a sugar chain therapeutic agent. I imagine that RNA viruses are too fast to catch up with vaccines. a new science path without thinking of a crisis. Forcing the convenience, time and amount of activity so far, and rethinking the social environment pushed into a crowded train to return to a basic human life I live with the hope of the times.

The social implications of COVID-19:
It is reminding us that we are all equal, regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are. This disease treats us all equally.
It is reminding us that we are all connected and something that affects one person has an effect on another.
It is reminding us of how precious our health is and how we have moved to neglect it through eating nutrient poor manufactured food and drinking water that is contaminated with chemicals upon chemicals.
It is reminding us of the shortness of life and of what is most important for us to do, which is to help each other, especially those who are old or sick.
It is reminding us of how materialistic our society has become and how, when in times of difficulty, we remember that it’s the essentials that we need (food, water, medicine) as opposed to the luxuries that we sometimes unnecessarily give value to.
It is reminding us of how important our family and home life is and how much we have neglected this.
It is forcing us back into our houses so we can rebuild them into our home and to strengthen our family unit.
I agree that COVID-19 has brought many sorts of crisis such as psychological, economic, health related crisis up to death. So, we should give due care by respecting what health professionals have been advising us.
YOGESH CHANDRA TRIPATHI Thank you for your comment and contribution, really I appreciate that. Thanks a lot. I totally agree with you. Also, I would like to add that these measures are only precautionary and defensive, as for now there is no vaccine or medicine for this virus.
It seems really pathogenic virus which affects nearly all ages and owing to lack of vaccination/eradication strategy we should be profoundly careful until avenues be open towards prevention or treatment

Yes, indeed we are in a global crisis. the pandemic has affected every sector even in the software industry. Microsoft, google have suspended all upgrades. The traditional April major patch of Microsoft is projected to be postponed
Dear RG friends, the pharmacist Roche blocks the release of a liquid needed for testing corona: "one of those materials would be good for laboratories to make themselves," writes Follow the Money. It's the 'lysis buffer', a special liquid that can break open cells to release genetic material. The exact recipe is only known to Roche, but so far the manufacturer has not disclosed it to laboratories. The question of Follow the Money of Roche is prepared to do so because of the coronacrisis, did not receive an answer". Sorry to inform you. Are the Chines able to help? All the best Carl
As there is no cure, only preventive measures are all that could make an end to the pandemic. Staying at home, avoidance of mass gathering, maintaining social distance, balance diet with additional citrus fruits and personal protective measures might help in preventing the spread of SARS-CoV2 virus infection (COVID-19).
Sorry, I failed to understand your message so I answered from a different perspective. I assume after the COVID-19 pandemic, the world will certainly fall into a long-term downturn in economic activity. All of the countries will concentrate on their own national issues, there will be a massive increase of jobless manpower and the flow of funds will be a real problem. What could be the measures only economists know.
in terms of facing a crisis, there is no dispute of this though humanity is praying with the hope that it is to be short-termed one. to face it, abide by a full quarantine, be consent to hygienic practices, and be a big fan of social distance strategy.
First of all, we have to faith in only one Almighty Allah.
At this stage, we have to eat more nutritious and natural fruits containing antioxidants. Like as- different citrus fruits may heal our body. Consumption of this natural fruits may help to produce antibodies in our bodu against the covid 19.
In recent years the scientific community has shown a vivid interest in the network structure and dynamics of real-life organized systems. Many such systems, covering an extremely wide range of applications, have been recently shown to exhibit scale-free character in their connectivity distribution, meaning that they obey a power law.
