How the world can keep its smartphones safe from a deadly virus
Posted On July 14, 2021
PHOENIX — In the past few days, the U.S. government has issued warnings to its citizens against cell phone users using a virus-fighting device, a warning that was followed by calls to restrict the use of such devices.
A report released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that the most common types of viruses among American adults are coronavirus and dengue fever.
The report said that about one in five Americans aged 18 to 64 has been infected by either coronaviruses or dengues, and one in 10 has died from a coronaviral disease.
The CDC report said a coronivirus infection in the United States can lead to severe illness, including pneumonia, heart failure, severe shock, convulsions, and death.
It said more than 100,000 Americans have died from denguing in the past decade, and the pandemic has killed more than 11 million people.
The report said the most effective vaccine against coronavirosts is a vaccine against the coronavire, a virus that spreads from an infected person to another.
The CDC report did not give the dose, the type of vaccine, or the vaccine’s effectiveness in preventing the coronovirus.
The virus also has a name, CCRV-19, but that name was changed to CCRVs-16 and CCR-17 in December to distinguish them from CCRVA, which is a type of coronavore.
The U.K. government warned its citizens not to use any device with a built-in microphone, speaker, or camera, or any other electronic device that might collect data from the user.
The government said that this could include cell phones, Bluetooth earbuds, or other devices that collect voice, text, and data.
In the United Kingdom, the government has warned its residents not to take any outdoor trips with a cell phone and that they should avoid using public transportation.
It is urging people not to touch cell phones on public sidewalks or parks.
A similar warning was issued in Australia.
The United States has also banned the sale of all cell phones and other devices to anyone under the age of 18.
It has also imposed a two-year quarantine for the United states, and has banned all foreign travel by U.N. employees.
