Corona Virus Cape Cod


Corona Virus to Hit Cape Cod - Planned Quarantine


Harvard University epidemiologists are predicting the corona virus "will ultimately not be containable" and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity, Many of those people, whom will reside in New England and specifically Cape Cod due to it’s high humidity and ocean air. 

That's precisely why he doesn't think the virus can be stopped. Viruses like SARS, MERS, and the avian flu were eventually contained in part because they were more intense and had a higher fatality rate. In other words, if you were infected by the virus that caused SARS, chances were you weren't out and about. But because the current coronavirus, known as COVID-19, can be asymptomatic, or at least very mild, there's a better chance people will likely go about their day as normal. The down side, though, is that it becomes harder to trace and prevent. In that sense it's similar to the flu, which can also be deadly, but often passes without the infected person seeking medical care.

The CDC is definitely not alone in his prediction. Cape Cod and New England are at high risk based on climate factors. There's an emerging consensus that there will be a major outbreak in these regions.
