  1. people have always to be clean, wash hands with soap, wash clothes and be exposed to the sun for two hours, drink hot water, use alcohol sterilizer, stay away from ice-cream and eating cold, gargle with warm and saltwater

  2. Can the WHO explain why, despite widespread zoophilia tourism in europe, these zoonotic viral outbreaks always occur outside europe? How is that people having sex with animals are not getting these viral and other zooonoses? Something really stinks here…..smh

  3. What a racist video; why were the cartoon characters at the beginning of the video all non-"white" people? Wow……

  4. "Previously unknown virus" So…admit it, it was man-made virus in a laboratory and on purpose was spread out to test which effective vaccines can cure it at the cost of people's lives and cash in on the vaccine manufacturing, and cash in from people going to expensive checkups for specific cases, because that shit ain't cheap, which it should, but everything in this world works quite opposite of how it should. But nobody will admit it, because it the whole health organization and pharmaceutical companies will be placed in distrust and taken down in time, because that's how community and population will act when the obvious will be stated officially or as an unofficial source with proof. But who needs a proof when this shit is obvious enough as cash in method for corrupted pharmaceutical companies and other places, just like that fuckface Martin Shkreli… one man's sacrifice to maintain the corruption, people like him are everywhere.

    Obviously a virus, in modern age, cannot be a random occurrence that simply just-so-happens to spread all over the world in matter of days and weeks, and for all these years never before head of and remained unknown, that's totally impossible. So who was this genius who created it just to cash in on the vaccine manufacturing at the cost of lives?? Fucking ass health organizations and pharmaceutical corporations.

  5. it's worst when you have sinusitis isn't it?

    Cause the symptoms you described is the same symptoms with sinusitis patients

  6. I love the voice actor. He makes everything so calm and happy. I can just imagine him a year from now….

    "Millions have died from the initial virus"
    "and millions more from starvation in quarantined cities! :)"
    "Survivors in many areas of the world have formed large cannibalistic tribes."
    "If you encounter a cannibal tribe. Remember to stay calm!"

  7. Well that was a very basic quick guide,that never really answered any questions type of video,now I am none the wiser,what else could I have expected to from the WHO,silly of me to have expected more,shame on me for watching !

  8. "Covering my mouth when coughing or sneezing"??
    You mean to protect others??
    But what about me?.. Me myself and I?? What about if i don't wanna cover my mouth because i'm already infected and i worry about MY health. What about me me me?…
