    Huh. So it's not just a respiratory bug.

    Should that little voice in my head be going "Hmmmm..."?

    Is China allowing international help on this or are they trying to handle it all internally?

    The Wuhan government has announced it is building a hospital with 1,000 beds in the style of a facility constructed in Beijing during the Sars epidemic.

    The hospital is expected to be completed on 3 February.

    The prefabricated buildings were being erected around a holiday complex originally intended for local workers, set in gardens by a lake on the outskirts of the city.

    Disneyland in Shanghai will be closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Zoe Tidman writes.

    "In response to the prevention and control of the disease outbreak and in order to ensure the health and safety of our guests and Cast, Shanghai Disney Resort is temporarily closing Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown," it said on its website.

    "We will continue to carefully monitor the situation and... announce the reopening date upon confirmation."

    The vast majority of cases have been in and around Wuhan, but people who visited or had personal connections to infected people were among the scattered cases counted beyond the mainland.

    South Korea and Japan both confirmed their second cases on Friday and Singapore confirmed its third.

    Cases have been detected in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, the United States, Thailand and Vietnam.

    Many countries are screening travellers from China and isolating anyone with symptoms.

    Fourteen people in the UK have been tested for the coronavirus, with five confirmed negative and nine still waiting results, Public Health England said on Thursday night.

    The Scottish government had earlier confirmed that five people were being examined after presenting with symptoms of the illness, while it was understood that another patient was being tested at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital.

    While none of the UK cases has been confirmed as the virus so far, two of those being tested in Scotland had been diagnosed with influenza after travelling to Wuhan in China.

    They all travelled to Scotland from Wuhan, where the outbreak is thought to have originated, within the past two weeks, and were showing symptoms of respiratory trouble, a red flag for the virus.

    It is "highly likely" cases of the new coronavirus will be found in the UK, the medical director of Public Health England has said.

    "I think it's highly likely that we will have cases in the UK," Professor Paul Cosford, told the BBC.

    "We do have a whole range of plans ready to go when that is the case and these are being implemented now."

    Anyone watch CBS this morning. They showed video of a Chinese Emergency Room. Wall to wall scared and panicky people.

    And yes, a lot of this will be mass hysteria. But it indicates their health care system is being overwhelmed.

    The Chinese are very good at construction. They did the same thing back in the SARS epidemic.
