It’s safe to say that as we head further into the coronavirus outbreak, tension and panic only seems to be on the rise.
This week, a viral video taken on a flight has proven just that. Keep scrolling to watch the heated clip…
The deadly coronavirus, or COVID-19, as medical experts are referring to it, has taken our planet hostage, and is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.
According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a new strain of coronaviruses that had not been previously been identified in humans.
And common symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.
And in patients who are elderly and have existing health issues, the virus can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
202,272, to be precise.
And, devastatingly, a staggering 8,012 more have reportedly died from the illness.
And many have been asking the same thing – Where did this virus actually come from?
On December 31st, 2019, China alerted the World Health Organization of several flu-like cases in Wuhan.
Many different theories have been proposed, but it is now widely believed to have originated from the sale of meat from wild animals, especially bats, where the virus has been discovered in the past.
The virus was alarmingly quick to spread, with cases being reported as far away as Thailand just one week later.
Which was done in an attempt to combat the virus and enable countries to put in strict measures to prevent any further spread.
Because, fast forward 3 months, and nearly every major country in the world has been infected by the virus, with some of the worst affected being Japan, South Korea, Russia, Italy, Iran, and Spain.
And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.
Leaving their streets completely deserted.
Our first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.
Since the first COVID-19 patient in Washington, there have been over 4,000 more confirmed cases across the country, with the death toll having now surpassed one-hundred.
And, on Friday, President Trump declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus pandemic, freeing up $50 billion in federal funding and promising a screening website and drive-by tests.
FYI… A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.
Which prohibits any travel between the United States and any European country, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.
And many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.
And a video that has gone viral on social media this week proves this.
Which was allegedly triggered over rows about elbow room.
And at one point, the passenger slaps a female air hostess in the face.
In the footage, she can be heard claiming that a male flight attendant had punched her spouse first.
But their attempts come to no avail.
The passenger can be heard shouting: “You don’t put your goddamn hands on me! Motherf****r!” he yells.
“I will beat the s**t out of you! … The f**k you want? What you ask b***h?”
But he pulled it down during the heated spat and allegedly “sprayed spit at some of the people he was yelling at,” according to VT.
She can be heard telling the passenger: “Now you listen, and you calm down. You will go with [the] police … Listen, we heard you already, now you’re finished. If you don’t finish, you will get in trouble.”
Who then responds by slapping her in the face.
The video then cuts off.
The chaotic footage was posted to Facebook and quickly went viral.
“This happened on a Brussels airline flight this morning. A black man, his wife and family were traveling back from a vacation. The man is complaining about TWO men who were sitting on the sides of his Mother-in-law and elbowing her as she was sitting in the middle seat,” wrote Carmen Moore, who posted the clip.
“The man complained to the supervisor and was told they didn’t have to help him. The female Supervisor proceeded to defend the men who were elbowing the woman when the man said something to the supervisor. She slapped him. The men who jumped on him broke his ribs and the police drug him down the plane’s steel stairs despite the man asking for medical attention prior.”
