Society Up In Smoke

 A Wuhan Crematorium

Today the WHO raised CoVid19’s risk level however, claim data shows it’s not a global pandemic meanwhile, hoping it’s true otherwise, human society will go up in smoke.

That smoke is from the crematoriums that will be needed to cope with the overwhelming millions of dead from this deadly virus will mercilessly produce

The UN body still believes we have a chance containing CoVid19 if its chain of transmission is somehow interrupted.

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of WHO however, worries that mounting fear coupled with misinformation, most of it on the Internet, poses a grave challenge in fighting the infections rate.

The highly infectious pathogen already spans over 50 countries popping up unexpectedly mostly the result of air travel carrying exposed passengers who infect others when they leave their plane.

According to WHO to achieve proper containment of this corona-virus, all governments and societies need to function together to slow the infection rates, break CoVid19 infection chains helping to relieve the tremendous pressure on strained world healthcare systems.

Everyone needs to carefully follow this public health advise:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Dispose of the used tissue immediately and responsibly.
  • Immediately wash your hands thoroughly and frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated or unclean hands.
  • Avoid contact with the visibly sick.
  • Avoid social gatherings or crowds during this time.
  • Should you develop a fever, feel unwell, and suspect you are infected contact you health authorities for instructions.
  • Self isolate after contacting health authorities to protect others.

Here is a glimpse of what is going on at the epicenter of the corona-virus outbreak in Wuhan city, China.

Workers at the city’s 84 crematoriums are overwhelmed with the number of dead bodies piling up with nowhere to store them before burning to ashes.

The workload is inhuman with little-to-no-time for any meaningful rest or sleep, the dead are constantly being transferred from hospital mortuaries and private homes.

Workers are required to wear protective garments, masks, and goggles as protection from CoVid19 nevertheless, must constantly take off their outfits when needed.

The disposable protective gear must be replaced with new however, because of shortages the workers are constantly being exposed to infection.

Workers are working 24/7 and according to several that were interviewed said “we couldn’t go back home”, fearing the possibility of infecting their loved ones.

There seems no end for these understaffed, overworked, ill equipped, workers, who make do by re-using already contaminated gear or creating make-shift gear from raincoats, swim google, plastic bottles, pieces of cloth etc.

Meanwhile, dead bodies are picked up, stacked, and cremated without notifying the deceased kin, preventing their family members contact and infection.

Statistically, about 60 percent of dead picked up are from private homes, hospitals provide the rest.

Keeping track of the deceased identifications has also been lost in the process due to the unprecedented, overwhelming, stacks of piled up virus victims needing quick disposal.

Some of these deceased had hospital records however, many did not, having died in hot, stuffy, over-packed waiting rooms or halls and never receiving prompt treatment.—because they could not receive prompt medical treatment.

According to witnesses in Wuhan, the city is enveloped in a heavy, smokey, haze caused by the mass incineration of dead bodies, this is also happening all over China.

All this air pollution makes me wonder about how huge a “carbon footprint” this poses in our “climate change” concerned world hmm..ah, it won’t matter soon will it?
