What is your nation doing to combat the Corona Virus?

Postby Legolannd » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:56 am

As many of us know, the Wuhan Corona Virus has ravaged much of China and is spreading fast. As such, I have come here today to ask what your nation is doing to combat the virus?
Are you researching a cure? Locking down Chinese air travel? Or are you just gonna nuke or napalm China?

Legolannd is researching a cure, but we also plan to napalm China as we have locked down all travel with China.

We have established containment protocols, by putting in quarantine every citizen confirmed to be contaminated with the virus, 80 cases so far.
We are also checking the temperature of every passenger arriving on international flights, not only from China.
All citizens that have been in China in the last three months MUST report to the nearest hospital to be tested.
Also, interstate travel in the Empire has been asked to be reduced, the Armed Forces reserves have been called back and are ready to be deployed to institute a Quarantine nationwide.
And of course, the Centers for Disease Control are actively researching a cure.

Vexilia fortunately only had one case from a citizen who returned home from a vacation. We cannot disclose what happened to this citizen upon arrival.
Since then, all travel in or our of the nation has been forbidden, with the exception of foreigners who are trying to leave to their home country.
Due to the unpleasant conditions near the Vexilian/Rebel borders there has been a large medical team dispatched not too far away to help quell things before they get out of hand.
The Rebel Government has yet to make a statement regarding infection rates within their territory.

Thanks to our regulated border and immigration control, we were able to locate 3 cases of the virus and quarantined those who were close contact for monitoring. We have our top researchers working on a cure and vaccine, as well as compensating any un infected individuals who have been quarantined for the waste of their time, via one months salary and complementary foods :p .

first off we're not panicking. second our medical facilities are more than capable of handling any outbreak.
doctors are ensuring that all at risk patients are well up to date on vaccines for other illnesses that could cause complications (such as the flu)
face masks are freely available at all local government facilities such as schools, hospitals, libraries and community centres.

all those in the medical field as well as those involved in the travel industry have been provided with the SARS-CoV vaccine while we work on developing a vaccine for this particular strain of the virus. we know that the SARS-CoV vaccine is not guaranteed against the SARS-CoV-2 (covid-19) but at this point in time it's better than nothing as development of as SARS-CoV-2 vaccine is at best months away.

those with impaired immune systems and cardiovascular problems are being asked to avoid travel to infected areas. at this time there have been no confirmed cases within our borders we are offering medical assistance to other nations. with our nations aero-space force already preparing to deliver needed medical supplies to infected nations and naval hospital ships preparing to move out to infected regions.

When dealing with viruses, the situation can vary however the national government maintains various protocols for decades ever since the establishment of the PRZ. Regarding contagious airborne viruses such as the 2009 swine flu pandemic or the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Health would keep citizens up to date on any potential cases of infected individuals in the country and keep a close observation on the contagious virus. Not only that, MoH would establish guidelines on avoiding getting infected and what to do if infected, as well as providing other information and raising awareness regarding any virus that might pose a threat to public health. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transportation together with the Ministry of Territorial Affairs would keep an eye out on any mass movement of people entering the nation especially through customs & immigration, and if an outbreak in another country is already enough to pose a massive threat, the MoT can suspend travel to Zhouran from that nation. For example, during the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, the MoT suspended any flights from Mainland China to Zhouran, meanwhile the MoTA works together with the MoH in maintaining and securing Zhouran's highly-strict biosecurity, in order to protect the health of the people, fauna and flora of the nation from outside diseases.

If there is a large-scale viral outbreak within Zhouran, the Ministry of Health together with both the Ministry of National Emergency and Ministry of Defense would rapidly mobilize assets to deal with the virus and contain it, thus mobile field hospitals from the MoH, MoNE, and the Zhouranese People's Army would be quickly set up in affected areas.

Ever since The Kangmukeli and political-hardliners took power in 2027, the nation's already-strict biosecurity became even more strict while any viral outbreaks in other nations are treated as potential existential-threats to the Zhouranese People & Nation. There has been rumors both within Zhouran and abroad that political-hardliners send biohazard death-squads to any outbreak hotspots around the world and eliminate individuals with any contagious diseases before incinerating corpses and villages with incendiary weaponry including napalm explosives and thermobaric weapons. While the political-hardline establishment strongly denies these rumors, with Senior Marshal Tanrong Aisun (current Premier of the Central Council since 2027) describing them as "mere political-fiction fantasies created by delusional tinfoil-hat wearers, greasy basement dwellers and low-life armchair-experts", the political-moderates on the other hand claim existence of these rumors using reports from supposed eyewitnesses.

but we also plan to napalm China

careful with that E D G E OP, while at it we might as well nuke muhrica for dem pesky seasonal influenza. epic logic

Socialist Macronesia's government debated for several hours on what to do until one man, who shall remain nameless, said "So why don't we just not let anyone in?" And so it was. SAM missile silos search the sky, blasting away any non-military aircraft. Anti-ship missiles take out any ships attempting to come into the country. Armored vehicles have destroyed several houses of "sick people".Whether or not they were actually ill is under debate.

Andocara has put a travel restriction on people coming from China, as well as other countries, as they have to be tested and quarantined. The medical field is finding a cure for this disease and many people are now wearing cover ups, and taking measures to prevent to prevent infection. Those who are diagnosed are immediately sent to the emergency rooms. So far, there has only been two cases, one in Paramount City, the other in Gialayo.

"Corona-what now?"

[After a moment of confusion followed by fastidious note-checking, she nods to herself in understanding.]

"Aha, right. See, the problem we have in dealing with the coronavirus is that there is no coronavirus. Or at the very least, none that are as threatening as this pandemic everybody else seems to be so hyped up about. Sure, you get a couple of morons who try to take 'going batshit' to a whole new level during their post-raid barbecues, but if they catch anything as funky as this coronavirus from their food, we put them into quarantine. And by 'put them into quarantine', I, of course, mean take them to a hermetically-sealed chamber, lock them into stocks, and rig up a machine that constantly whips their ass with barbed wire for being stupid enough to eat something that's obviously not right for human consumption! Seriously, who came up with the idea to eat bats of all things? They're not even that nutritious, and the wings just get in the way! Anyway, all this talk about coronavirus has gotten me in the mood for beer, so I'll be cutting this interview short. Feel free to join me for drinks, though!"

The Wuhan Pneumonia is not currently present in TurtleShroom. However, that specific Chinese-cultured nation has already been sanctioned by TurtleShroom in the past.

The Wuhan Pneumonia is actively being resisted as follows:
  • All travel to that specific Chinese nation is prohibited. This is fine, because that specific country embargoes TurtleShroom and its citizens.
  • All TurtleShroomers currently present in that specific nation have been recalled and screened before reintroduction to the country. (This isn't an issue because the specific Chinese country in question is already sanctioned by TurtleShroom and vice-versa, as said above.)

As TurtleShroomers are not legally allowed to enter the Chinese-cultured nation from which the Wuhan Pneumonia arose, there is thankfully nothing to quarantine. Yet. Coronaviruses themselves, however, have a much darker reputation and are feared for a reason.

Influenza is a coronavirus. General/classical influenza is still quite lethal in TurtleShroom and there is no cure or vaccine to stop it or prevent its exposure. Every year, ten to twenty percent of TurtleShroomers get the disease (about one hundred million cases annually). Furthermore, normal human influenza has a 0.25% death rate in TurtleShroom. Wuhan Pneumonia would likely be higher. A similar coronavirus, the Spanish Flu, hit remote parts of Nationstates about one hundred years ago, and its death rate was ten percent.

It is believed that Wuhan Pneumonia would have a similar death rate to the Spanish flu. Worse, unlike normal influenza, evidence suggests that the disease could spread to turtles. The biggest fear would involve the Wuhan Pneumonia spreading to turtles while being asymptomatic. This could result in the deaths of many millions of older TurtleShroomers, who are, traditionally, dangerously exposed to pneumonia.

* = This is around the rate of Influenza in RL America during the 1940's AD.

Ministry of Health

Coronavirus in SC

''Thing is, that in SC, the coronavirus plague hasn't broken out yet. There were rumors of a similar disease outbreak in RNGOC (Reorganized National Government of China) in the 2020s. However, it seems to have been contained within their territory, as we got no infected people in SC, at least in parts we know. As of 2052, it seems, that the variant of coronavirus in question is not coming to SC's world government anytime soon - if anything, coronaviruses like common cold and influenza are a bigger threat, considering that their outbreaks are seasonal in pretty much all of the globe.''

''However, if such an outbreak would happen in today's SC, UCN (United Commonwealth Nations) council would try to find a solution as fast as possible, and coordinate efforts to prevent spreading of virus as much as possible. Wealthier regions can afford to enact measures on bigger scale and have some special options, but basic preventive actions like quarantine, burning of the dead bodies, etc, should be a thing which all regions should be able to afford. For citizens, basic safety measures like washing hands, and not coughing in your palms are advised not only during an outbreak, but in everyday life too, even when there is not a pandemic in question. Number of face masks is limited, so let's save them for medics and those in urgent need. And most importantly - don't panic, as our governments do everything to protect and prevent spread of the virus.''

''If the attempts to contain virus to a single or a few regions fail, then most of the international travel and tourism should be shut down, and mass disinfection campaigns should be started. The tourists in the infected regions should be put in quarantine locally, and so should all the ships, planes, trains, or other means of transport which come from the regions with virus epidemic. Shooting the infected should be reserved for very desperate cases. The lifeblood of the Commonwealth like international trade or manufacturing should continue to function, but at slower pace, and undergoing various disinfection procedures. Wealthier Commonwealths should aid the poorer ones with things like free face masks, disinfection soaps, and other means of aid. After finding the animals who carry the virus (zoonosis - a.k.a when a disease spreads from animals to humans), the number of them should be regulated by special hunter teams, wearing the proper protection suit. Protection suit should be worn by medical personnel which work in the hospitals with the infected.''

''Richer regions should also put efforts in developing the cure, and coordinate the curing efforts afterwards with the governors of poorer regions. In regions with poorer, and more fragile healthcare system, controlling the virus will be way harder, and pockets of it could last even after epidemic would have been stopped in most of the regions, so the main task is to limit the virus spread before it gets to those regions. The various institutes, hospitals, and health ministries all should cooperate towards this goal, with as little setbacks from corruption as possible. This is similar to the overall plan X-E14 developed by UCN as an instruction manual in reaction to various pandemics and epidemics. The plan also covers other diseases like plague, HIV, and various rare/not yet known or named diseases (X plans are various instruction manuals developed for global emergencies. Individual regions have the ''X-hour'' plans, which focus on dealing with possible military conflict or famine scenarios.)''

Pretty much the instant it started cropping up in the news, the FDC (Federation Disease Control) recommended a suspension of all surface-orbit shuttle service between China and the Federation. This was swiftly implemented, and Luna took similar measures. You do NOT want a potentially deadly virus in the closed environments of stations, ships, and lunar colonies, which endlessly recycle air. Doubly so because a coronavirus strain was responsible for killing 40% of the Chinese population in the 2030s and throwing them back into warring states for several decades.
