It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.
    In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.
    What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

    1. Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

      Phew. That might have been the fastest we ever made a video. Literally working day and night. A huge challenge in talking about Corona was that the science is ongoing. So we put in extra special care to have good sources for this video and will update them in the coming weeks and months. Check them out here: sites.google.com/view/sourcescorona We could not have made this video without experts who took time in one of the busiest periods of their own careers. A huge thanks especially to Dr James Gurney and Dr Max Roser of Our World in Data for helping us make sure the video was as accurate as it could be in a situation that is changing daily. Also a big shoutout to ourworldindata.org/ - the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic. Working together with them over the years has been a delight. Ok. We are very tired and are going to take a nap now. Stay healthy!

        Way to go to go China!! Lets just eat Bats with tons of diseases, posinus fish, and other exotic animals so we can get sick and give the whole world a virus!

      2. The Tik-Tok Man

    3. james zxc

      PROLOGUE: (READ WITH A VOICE OF A NARRATOR IN A MOVIE) FOR MANY YEARS THE BATS HAVE HIDDEN THEIRSELVES IN THE CAVE, HIDING BECAUSE OF FEAR, GOING OUT AT NIGHT WHEN PEOPLE ARE ASLEEP, THEY EVEN HAVE TO SLEEP UPSIDE DOWN AT THE TOP WHERE NO ONE CAN REACH THEM. THEY HAVE DISTANCED THEIR SELVES FROM HUMANS BUT BEING AN IDIOT KNOWS NO BOUNDS. THE HUMANS STILL FOUND A WAY TO CAPTURE THEM. THEY SLAUGHTERED THEM ONE BY ONE, DEFENSELESS THE BATS THOUGHT OF A WAY TO REVOLT AND FIGHT AGAINST HUMANS. SO THEY CREATED A VIRUS AND SACRIFICED THEIRSELVES FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR RACE. SIMILAR TO A SUICIDE BOMBER THIS BAT HARBORED ONE OF THE DEADLIEST VIRUS EVER KNOWN TO MANKIND. THIS BAT FLEW FOR MONTHS ALL THE WAY TO CHINA BECAUSE THE BAT KNOWS CHINESE PEOPLE LOVES THEIR BAT SOUP. IN NO AVAIL THEY IMMEDIATELY SLAUGHTERED THE BAT ON SITE AND MADE IT THEIR CUISINE. WHAT THEY DO KNOW NOW IS THIS BAT IS THEIR SAVIOUR, LIKE JESUS CHRIST WHO GAVE AWAY HIS LIFE TO SAVE ITS PEOPLE. THE BAT BECAME SUCCESSFUL HE SPREAD THE VIRUS NOT ONLY IN CHINA BUT ALMOST ALL OVER THE WORLD. BECAUSE OF THIS HEROIC SACRIFICE OF THE BAT. THE PEOPLE WOULD NO LONGER EAT BATS ANYMORE BECAUSE OF THE FEAR THE VIRUS CAUSED. THIS BAT IS A HERO, HE SAVED COUNTLESS LIVES OF HIS RACE. BUT HOLD YOUR HORSES, CATS AND DOGS BECAUSE LIKE WHAT I SAID BEING AN IDIOT KNOWS NO BOUND. SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE AN IDIOT WOULD STILL EAT BATS FOR DINNER BUT THIS TIME THIS BAT BOUGHT HIS RACE ENOUGH TIME TO BE STRONGER SO THEY CAN DEFEND THEMSELVES ONCE ALL OF THIS IS ALL OVER. HUMANS HAVE BEEN GREEDY, THEY ENJOYED LIVING THEIR FOOLISH LIVES UNTIL THE BAT NATION ATTACKED AND SHATTERED THEIR WAY OF LIVING. YOU MAY BE SAD BECAUSE OF COUNTLESS HUMANS WITH FAMILIES HAVE PERISHED BUT ALL THIS TIME THE BATS WERE EXPERIENCING THE SAME THING. BATS HAVE LIVES AND FAMILIES TOO BUT HUMANS DID NOT CARE. THEY JUST TURNED THE SITUATION AROUND. NOW THE BATS NO LONGER HIDE, THEY FLY AND ENJOY THE WORLD THEMSELVES WHILE THE HUMANS ARE NOW IN HIDING, TREMBLING IN FEAR. THE HERO BAT WHO SACRIFICED HIMSELF TURNED THE SITUATION UPSIDE DOWN. BATS IN THE OPEN, HUMANS IN HIDING. WHAT IS THE LESSON? DO NOT BOTHER PEOPLE AND ANIMALS WHO ARE QUIET AND ARE DISTANCING THEIRSELVES FROM THE WORLD BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW BAD THEIR ANGER COULD GET UNTIL YOU MESS WITH THEM. FCKING BAT SOUP EATERS

    18. Laiba Fahd

      NGL this is all china's fault. If they hadn't ate Bat soup and other living animals none of this would have happen. The Chinese government are a piece of shit. Edit: Hate me if you want I don't mind 😔

      No one cares how the virus works, they just want to know how to prevent it! Also, this video should not make light of this pandemic by using light hearted wording. An insult to the seriousness of this illness.

    37. Gee Trieste

      We should all question the idea that soap or even alcohol will disrupt viruses. I don't believe viruses are encased in a lipid shell, they have more of a crystalline and hard protein shell. Bacteria and animal cells have lipid exteriors, soap works well on those. Surface skin is made up of inactivated proteins similar to hair and nails, which we know does not dissolve in soap or alcohol. What is effective against viruses are molecular oxidizers, like bleach, ozone, UVC light, peroxide somewhat, and maybe some quaternary ammonium disinfectants.

      1. Lord O' Endless Strife and Fear

        "I don't believe that viruses are encased in a lipid shell". It doesn't matter what you "believe", it's a fact that alchohol, etc. breaks apart their capsid. Also, we have plenty of highly detailed photos of viruses thanks to electromagnetic microscopes and they too show us that they have a lipid shell. All you have is your belief.

      Why do not wear face masks? This virus attacks your Respiratory System, not your skin!!!

      1. Hunter Xu

        ​@llDarkFlowll I know what you mean, but I am just wondering why people do not combine "wear masks" and "wash hands" together. The Chinese government emphasis "wear masks" more than "wash hands", but the western is opposite, it is so weird. Whatever, I hope you guys can take any proven measures to keep yourself and your family safe!

      2. llDarkFlowll

        Masks block the drop infection directly when people talking near each other or coughs but the viruses can cling around your body so wash your hands will kill the virus before you touch your face.

    40. Hearty Meat

      The Chinese have alot to answer for. They covered it up. Now the whole world is going to suffer. This virus is deadly. Stay safe and stay at home.

      1. hello there

        True, but also keep in mind that they handled it pretty well, while the Italians.... well... let's just say they treated it pretty differently

    41. Khojo

      You are wrong, CCP did not notify the world until January 2020 about the covid-19

    42. Vytautas Kunigonis

      But dont u also can use phages to kill the bacteria

    43. 메타몽냠냠

      😷wear a mask 🖐wash hands 😏social distancing😥

    44. Giorgos Gkanidis

      there also are these morons who beleve that covid-19 is a conspiracy and that everyone and everything wants to move against religion and refuses to stay at home and go to church along with others. they must face the law for criminal negligence because they can put in danger themselves and others.

      1. Giorgos Gkanidis

        @BlueToadTheBulbous unfortunately yes. they are either aged people or younger yet they are fanatically religious. many people tries to make them understand that staying at home doesn't make anyone less religious, that no one has the intention to make any harm to religion by any means etc. they cannot see that not only the churches closed and paused for a while, but many enterprises as well and no businessman ever complained about pausing their business until the quarantine ends. only those fanatics complain.

      2. BlueToadTheBulbous

        Wait seriously are they that stupid? Like not the what they believe or relate in, but the fact that they are endangering themselves by going outside?

    45. Lazarus Arguelles

      There will never be a better time in our lifetime to ditch this ridiculous disfuncional money system then right now. We don’t need it anymore to live. Maybe this pandemic will make people realize this fact.

      What do you mean at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="3">0:03</a> using virus instead of Chinese flag?! This is complete discrimination and racism. It’s a shame that you, a FIselsr with more than 10M followers, would make such a disregarding thing. Racism spreading in your video faster than the virus.

      Here's the solution: instead of spending trillions to subsidize every industry and person, subsidize the abbot test system and provide every household in america with one. Next have a tech company create a bracelet or implantable chip with gps tracking that connects to the abbot to know whether you are positive or negative for covid. If negative you are free to go outside, if positive the authorities will be notified and if you leave your house they will arrest you. We already do this with house arrest ankle devices. This is totally feasible and realistic with the tech we have today
