    What rubbish that lady talking.. Having fear of contracting the virus is BEING ANXIOUS. Not PTSD, PTSD is something/trauma that happened in the past.

    The problem is all these overpaid journalist exaggerating and distorting the news to make the most of it at the publics expense. Worrying people into an early grave. They are the big phycological problem morning, lunchtime, evening and night all in an attempt to justify their £200,000 plus salaries.

    To ease some anxiety…I have had it, im a 32yr old bodybuilder (bodybuilders tend not to be the best with their breathing!) that is in a keyworker role for work so I was tested. Apart from a tight chest, it wasn't that bad. I think if you are frail that is when you should be worried. The numbers of people in a serious state whom are healthy are there but they are incredibly small compared to those who are unwell or old. Just because it kills some healthy people doesn't give me cause for concern. Chickenpox can and does kill adults all the time, for example. An outbreak in a nursing home would wipe them all out, equally.

    Scientists, whilst their models do reasonably well to predict death as a direct impact from the disease, neglect all other indirect impacts.

    My worry is that the net effect of lockdown is worse than the net effect of something milder.

    Whilst we have no treatment capacity for this illness, sadly, lockdown or not, people are going to die. Lockdown has cost jobs, relationships, ways of life, schooling, exams, cancer treatments, weddings and the list goes on for billions of people who will suffer potentially generations down the line due to the economic impact also. Billions of people… which is many orders of magnitude more that the deaths.

    We sometimes have to ask ourselves if we have launched a torpedo to sink a canoe. The full scale of the indirect effects of our harsh lockdown is yet to be seenz but I hazard the truth will come out in the end and it may well be more imoactful to our wealth and wellbeing as a society than the virus has been and its affects may be observed for decades to come.

    I felt that the best and only thing I can do is to let go of all the fear (and keep the news off). Concentrate on taking care of myself first then loved ones if there is anything I can do. There really is no point in worrying about this. I just wake up everyday with gratitude that I'm well and go about my day carefully not to come in contact with any outside surface and avoid people as much as possible until this passes. Fear instills stresses in the body and ultimately weakens the immune system which would be not a good thing. You will need a strong immune system if and when you get this thing in order to have minimal effects and fast recovery. We are all fighting a war within against an invisible; we can win this if we're smart about it.

    As a happy lone wolf, I can now finally feel that I fit in society, or society is fitting in me.

    The virus is not that scary if we are scary of it. It is really scary if we are not scary. Taiwan tells everything. Taiwan knows well how vicious is the ccp. So they were scary when they knew of the virus n got prepared for it. Same for HongKong. Unfortunately, the defense of HK people is always brought down by the vicious government. In the west, people were not scary n even despised people for wearing a mask. It smelt disaster. You cannot overestimate the vice of the ccp!

    I like the self-reflexivity of DW, as well as the positive message they are trying to send amidst all this bad news.

    SARS-CoV-2 has now been seen to be able to infect both cats and dogs from their owners. Though it has not been seen to work the other way around I would assume it can pass from pets to people unless there is proof otherwise.
