On December 31st 2019, the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) China office heard the first reports of a previously-unknown virus behind a number of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in Eastern China with a population of over 11 million. Since then it has reached as far as the US, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Canada and South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and Finland causing 2,469 deaths worldwide (by 23rd February 2020).
So far 9 people in the UK have tested positive for the virus. Safety warnings, instructions and negative predictions are constantly translated through the mass media, suggesting people avoiding gatherings and crowds, limiting usage of public transport. London Underground, which serves roughly 1.2 billion passengers annually, is now called ‘’hotspot for the flu outbreaks’’ and ‘’hotbed for Coronavirus’’.
Is the danger real? How do we react in the presence of fear to be infected? Are the isolation, mistrust and suspicion – the best tools to stay alive?
