Coronavirus? Barcelona is open for business!

About a month ago the world was shaken and paralyzed with the discover of a new viral disease called Coronavirus or COVID19, similar to the flu, that was diagnostic to a man in a Chinese city called, Wuhan.

Since then, the fact that people have traveled around the world, has been spreading out the disease quite fast to the point that currently there are 1000.000 cases in 72 countries. If we keep in mind that the population of the Earth is 7. 8 billions, calling it a global epidemic migh sound a bit too much.

The World Health Organization released a document on February 11th regarding the situation and the virus and it stated that “In the majority of cases COVID-19 only causes a mild disease and although it can cause serious diseases in some people, it’s rarely deadly”.

What is the truth?

Media coverage has been a bit exaggerated and alarmist so far. The truth is it’s definitely better if we all take precautions when travel but, shouldn’t we always take them anyway? I mean, who doesn’t wash their hands often, tries to avoid touching things on the street too much or takes vitamins to keep their immune system high?

Scientist and health organizations have said that the symptoms are the same as the regular flu and it could be deadly only to oncologist patients, elder people or people with a weak immune system.

Panic and fear are very contagious, more than the Coronavirus, and media have played an important role on spreading it to the point that airline companies so far have been cancelling flights to critical countries for the tourism industry like Italy or China.

Keeping in mind that citizens of those countries are still living there, alive and doing a normal life, we should do the same. Did you have some holidays planned? take them, go, relax and enjoy.

Let’s follow the example of Barcelona, another critical city for the tourism industry that is open for business and more alive than ever!
