Global pandemic of new coronavirus infectionsWhat is (Shingata Coronavirus Infectious Diseases)?New coronavirus (COVID-2 OfinfectionCaused byAcute respiratory illness (COVID-19 OfPandemic(Pandemic).2019The epidemic started from the end, thisSpread of COVID-XNUMX infectionIn the process of stopping (Shingata coronavirus), the world system was reorganized.[2].


As mentioned above, it is highly latentNew coronavirus (COVID-2Caused byPandemicIs.The whole worldInfectionBeing exposed to the danger ofLockdownAnd immigration restrictions,OlympicWe have fallen into a situation that humankind has not experienced in the past, such as postponement and reduction.PandemicIn various policies such as lockdown implemented to convergeAnti-globalism, AntiDemocracySome of the measures were required, which made a big difference in the world system.In the world after Corona, of social lifeonlineOn the other hand, the freedom of action has retreated significantly compared to the past, and economic activity has shrunk significantly.Eating out,Tourism,leisure,Entertainment,Public transportationAnd so ononlineThere are some commercial activities that cannot be transformed, and the situation of nesting steadily undermines the real economy.COVID-19 vaccineThere is an urgent need to restore freedom of action by inoculation ofNew normal(Human activityAdaptation to the new normal state of[3].


2019March 11Wuhan City, Hubei Province, People's Republic of China"Unknown causeウ イ ル スsexpneumoniaWas confirmed for the first time, and then from Wuhan cityMainland ChinaInfection spread to other than ChinaCountryAnd expanded to the area[4].. The characteristics of the new coronavirus are so farSevere acute respiratory syndrome(SARS)Middle East respiratory syndromeIt was thought to be similar to (MERS), but due to its unprecedented high latency, it rapidly spread the infection by utilizing the economic activities of humankind.2020March 1who (WHO) is the 6th "Public health emergencies of international concern (PHEIC) ”declared[5] did. On February 2, the disease was rated "very high" at the highest level of risk for a global epidemic.[6], March 3,Tedros AdanomWHO Executive Secretary deviates from WHO standardsPandemicEquivalent to (pandemic)Expressed the recognition[7][8].

PandemicSince the outbreak, information has been confused with situations that are too unprecedented, and in the worldRacism,ideologyProblems such as conflicts also became apparent at once.In order to prevent the influx of the new coronavirus, countries around the world have imposed immigration restrictions, but due to the high latency of the new coronavirus, the epidemic has affected more than 180 countries and regions.Chugoku, South Korea,イタリア,スペインStarted withEurope,Japan,米 国There is a large-scale epidemic in[9].. As a result, one after another in major cities around the worldLockdown(City blockade・ Movement restrictions) were implemented, which hindered demand and the supply chain.Corona shockと 呼 ば れ るSocio-economic impactIs also causing. In particular, there was a significant decrease in demand for businesses that could not be digitized (especially sales in the travel, traditional culture, and event industries decreased by 2020% in May 5 compared to the same month of the previous year.[10]) And the turmoil in the supply chain caused serious damage to the real economy.Subsequent responses from countries around the world aimed at achieving both economic activity and prevention of the spread of infection have been difficult, and as a result of the resumption of economic activity by many countries, the number of infected people worldwide has grown exponentially again. I'm starting.In order to distinguish the society before and after the corona shock, terms such as "before corona", "after corona", "post corona", "under corona", and "with corona" are also proposed.[11].

Since SARS-CoV-2 is a virus under research, the situation remains uncertain. As of October 2020, 10, infections have occurred in 2 countries and territories, with 215 infected, 34,205,773 dead and 1,021,576 recovered.[1]..In addition, the number of infected people in the world continues to grow exponentially.WHOBut,1918Occurred inSpanish cold OfPandemicAs you can see from the comparison with[12],Human historyTop worst classPandemicIt can be said.

Characteristics of new coronavirus infection

COVID-2と 呼 ば れ るCoronavirusIt is,Chugoku OfWuhan City, Hubei Province OfWuhan Hua South Seafood Wholesale MarketFirst identified in[13].. SARS-CoV-2 is mainlycough,sneezeCame out withRespiratory dropletsOr through something that touches your hand, such as a doorknobInfluenza virusBy the same route asInfection between humansTo[14][15].Time from infection to onsetIs usually 5 days, but varies from 2 to 14 days depending on the person[15][16].

It is said to be a "warm virus"[17]As such, it exhibits characteristics that make it difficult for the host to detect the infection, and the virus is very easy to spread and also leads to sudden death.In many cases, even if infected, the condition remains asymptomatic, and there is little awareness of infection (becoming a carrier of the virus), but the symptoms areFever,cough,shortness of breath,tasteorSense of smellMay be accompanied by abnormalities, chills or chills, headache, sore throat, muscle pain, etc.[15][16][18].. As a complicationpneumonia,Acute respiratory distress syndromeMay be accompanied by.In the case of death, the patient's blood oxygen level dropped to a dangerous level without being aware of it (unawareness of severity), and even if he rushed to the hospital after the onset of suffocation, he could not wear the oxygen mask in time.Respiratory failureThere are many cases of death in[19]..Since it takes several hours to wear an oxygen mask, it is necessary for the infected person to go to a medical institution when there are no subjective symptoms, but even medical personnel can judge whether or not the condition has become severe if there are no subjective symptoms. It's hard to do.

Has a special effect on SARS-CoV-2Antiviral drugDoes not exist and research is underway. In clinical practice, symptom management andSupportive therapyEfforts are being made with a focus on. The recommended precautions areHand washingKeep a distance from the sick, and 14 days if you suspect an infectionSelf-isolationAnd taking follow-up, etc.[15].

On the other hand,PCR testI was hospitalized with a positive reaction, and after that, I was discharged because my symptoms had subsided. Possible reactivation of CoV-2 or another type of reinfection has been pointed out[20][21].

2020At the end, mutants have appeared all over the world, and it has been confirmed that the infectivity has become stronger than the previous SARS-CoV-2.[22][23].

Corona shock

Economically, the impact is great,International Monetary Fund (IMF)2020world ofGDPAnnounced forecast for growth of -4.4%[24].. This negative growth rate2008 OfLehman shockAt a value far exceeding -0.1% of the time,1929 OfWorld DepressionIt was the Great Depression since (the world GDP growth rate at that time was -15.0%), and in various fields.Corona shockWas also called[25][26][27][28].Financial marketOnly confusedLehman shockRather than destroying the real economy, in private companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprisesBankruptcy, dismissal, suspension of employment, wage cuts, and bonus cuts continueIn that senseCorona shockIs said to be worse in nature, andDue to job loss, outage of society as a whole, and stagnationSuicide due to mental illnessIs also increasing rapidly[Source required]..As the spread of infection continues to accelerate, there is no prospect of economic recovery.Under this circumstance20st centuryIt has been maintained sequentially from the endonlineUsing the environmentShut in economyThe practice of (economy that stays at home) begins, and when you go outSocial distanceThe world economy, such as securingITChanged to make the best use of[29]..The performance of IT companies that provide online services is growing due to the rapid progress of digitalization.New coronavirus (COVID-2Unexpectedly became a game changer in the economy. For example, it is said to be the top company in the IT industry.GAFAMOfMicrosoft The2020In the April-June periodAzureRelated sales increased 47%,XboxRelated sales increased 64%,SurfaceRelated sales increased 28%[30].. In this income and expenditure report, the companyCEO OfSatya NadellaIs "COVID-19Affects every aspect of our work and life, for two years in the last two monthsDigital transformationWas seen. "[31]..In addition, it has been reported that a high load has occurred on the Internet infrastructure, demonstrating the importance of the Internet infrastructure in an emergency.The largest in the worldContent delivery networkIt is said that it controls 15 to 30% of the Internet traffic.Akamai TechnologiesHas confirmed that Web traffic has increased up to twice the previous year, and although it is an inexperienced traffic volume, content can be delivered without delay.[32][Note 1]..This change in economic activity is in the political and business worldNew normalWas recognized as.

Vaccine development and inoculation

In COVID-19vaccineSome development methods are notable in terms of technical breakthroughs.Originally, in order to ensure safety in the human body, vaccines are developed in a development period of several decades or more (100 years or more at the longest), but vaccine development has not been successful yet.HIV,malariaThere are many infectious diseases such as, and vaccine development was abandoned.SARSInfectious diseases such as[34]..Despite such high technical difficulties, it was necessary to develop in a very short period of less than one year in order to avoid the economic collapse and converge the pandemic.

2020,America OfPharmaceuticalCorporatePfizerModernaIt is,mRNA vaccineHe argued that the new technology could overturn the conventional wisdom and significantly shorten the period of vaccine development, but the COVID-19 vaccine was the first to be put into practical use, and there are many unknowns about its safety.However, as of November of the same year, the COVID-11 vaccines of both companies are expected to be put into practical use at the fastest speed, and together with good clinical trial results, they are considered to be the most promising vaccines in the world. On November 19, Moderna announced tentative results that it was 11% effective for the vaccine under development.[35].. On November 11, Pfizer released its final analysis that it is 18% effective for the vaccine under development.[36].. On December 12, public COVID-8 vaccination began in the United Kingdom.At the earliest in Japan2021At the prospect of conclusion whether also approved during the month of February comes out, health care workers the government to prospect the late February anticipation of this, the elderly in the prospect of the end of March, with priority such as the subsequent people with underlying disease We are in a hurry to improve the system so that we can start inoculation.[37].. RNA, which is the main component of the mRNA vaccine, is easily destroyed when it is considered to be preserved, so it is used at ultra-low temperatures.Cold chainTechnology development is also urgent.

Also, of Japanese companiesAngesAlso announced that the second stage clinical trial of the COVID-19 vaccine has started, and the second stage clinical trial is expected to be completed around March 2.[38]..After that, after the final stage of clinical trials, it is expected that the AnGes vaccine will finally be put into practical use around the middle of the same year, so when compared with other countries, Japan will be far behind in the development of the COVID-19 vaccine.

However, it is difficult to identify infected persons with COVID-19, and it has been observed that even the above-mentioned Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, which are considered to be the most promising, cannot be immunized for life, and from around the end of 2020, all over the world. Since mutant types are also appearing, we will continueSocial regulationIt is said that it will be necessary to carry out vaccination and regular vaccination every few months.[39]..Furthermore, medium- to long-term COVID-19 vaccineSide reaction(Side effects) Has not been fully verified and is still in a situation where it cannot be optimistic.

World-wide infections and deaths

The graph below shows the changes in the number of infected people and the number of deaths of the new coronavirus worldwide. On February 2020, 2, the number of infected people exceeded 1, and on February 1, 2, the number of deaths exceeded 11. On March 1,000, the number of infected people exceeded 3, and on March 7, the number of infected people worldwide exceeded 10.And on March 3, the number of infected people worldwide exceeded 19. As of 20:3 on January 23, 30, more than 2021 million infected people and more than 1 million deaths have been confirmed worldwide.[1], Is still increasing.

As of the end of February, mainland China, the country of outbreak, accounted for most of the infections and deaths ("The outbreak situation of 2019 coronavirus infectious disease in mainland ChinaSee also). The number of infected people increased sharply on February 2 because Hubei Province of China changed the certification criteria for new coronavirus infection.[212].

On March 3, the number of people infected outside mainland China exceeded the number of people infected outside mainland China.

on the other hand,China National Sanitation and Health CommissionChanged to a standard on February 2 that even if the test is positive, it will not be announced as an infected person unless there are symptoms such as fever and cough.[213].

Also, on May 3Beijing UniversityIn a paper, the director of the National Development Research Institute pointed out unusually that "local officials have been ordered to'dispose of any new infected person'[213].. No new cases have been identified in Hubei on March 3-18, but it has been pointed out that China is tampering with statistical data to pretend to reach its goal of controlling infectious diseases.[213].

The death toll in the United Kingdom by April 4 does not include those who died in long-term care facilities. From now on, all residents will be inspected if they have any symptoms, and accurate data will be released soon.[214].

According to the announcement of the World Health Organization (WHO)New coronavirusThe case fatality rate of pneumonia due to (SARS-CoV-2) is estimated to be about 3%.[334]. this isSARSLess than 9.6% of case fatality rate[334][335].. In addition,Spanish cold Pandemic worldwideThe case fatality rate is estimated to be 2.5% or more, albeit inaccurately.[336].

Unlike SARS, this new coronavirus is said to be infected even before pneumonia occurs.[337].

Artificial virus hypothesis

An artificial virus hypothesis has been proposed for the new coronavirus, but a scientifically valid theory has not yet been proposed. January 1thIndian Institute of TechnologyScientists say that there are four sequences inserted in the spike area of ​​the new coronavirus.HIVAn analytical paper that states that it is part of or similar to the AIDS virus sequence is published in the scientific journal "BioRxiv"It is very unlikely that a virus will naturally acquire such a unique insertion in a short period of time."[338].. However, immediately after that, many researchers said that even if the analysis method itself did not make a big mistake, the interpretation of the result, for example, such insertion is also seen in other SARS-like viruses, or the expression Uncanny is scientific. The authors themselves withdrew the paper on February 2, after receiving criticisms such as being inappropriate or may be taken as suggesting genetic manipulation to the reader.[339].. As of February, BioRxiv has posted the following alerts (quoted) on all preprinted web pages.[340].

bioRxiv has received a number of new papers on coronavirus 2019-nCoV.

Notes: These are unpeer-reviewed preliminary reports. They should not be considered conclusive, clinical and hygiene code of conduct, and should not be reported as established information in the news media.

One of them further infected one of the locals in Shenzhen. In addition, one of these five infected children did not develop the disease while being infected, so it is highly possible that they unknowingly infected the people around them.[352].

Spaces such as schools, workplaces, events, meetings, etc., where groups are close together on a daily basis, are spaced from each other.
  • Closures
Closure of places where people gather, such as schools, workplaces, events, sports, religious gatherings, festivals and conferences.
