    Since the virus has already spread through out China, this isn't enough. Screen every flight from China, or alternatively, put a temporary ban on all flights from China to the US.

    Just to be safe and save us all some time, we should probably just go ahead and blame Trump now.

    500 people sick and 17 dead

    I assume that’s the baseline rate of death for infections in China on a normal day

    I like my odds

    I heard on the news this evening that the population of Wuhan is 11 million. That is alot of potential carriers.

    I learned a long time ago to wash my hands several times a day. Every time I leave the house and return the first thing I do is wash my hands with soap and water. It has served me well.

    If I'm in a grocery store and some shopper is hacking and sneezing, I move over a couple aisles.

    Traffic intersections probably killed more Chinese today.

    Interesting. I may have remembered it wrong. Looks like the Science was sound after all.

    She says the shell on the outside of the Coronavirus is to hard to break so it’s hard to replicate.

    The number of cases is nothing to China. It’s the number of new cases that’s getting their attention. With them closing down Wuhan, I’d say this virus really has their attention.

    Avian flu talk and ABC nightly news covered the the quarantine of Wuhan. As far as the numbers and the actual outbreak goes, Avian Flu Talk, FluTrackers, CIDRAP, WHO, CDC, CrofsBlog H5N1, Virology Down Under, and ProMed mail are the sources I’ve been using.

    CIDRAP is run by Dr. Osterholm (Infectious disease Specialist). Avian Flu Talk is a disease forum. Dr. Stack (Epidemiologist) is one of their members. Flutrackers has an assortment of Microbiologists, Virologists, and Epidemiologists. Virology Down Under is Run by Dr. Ian MacKay (Virologist).

    I think that’s all of them. Flutrackers has the most up to date information. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. It’s a lot of reading.

    Exactly. You don't quarantine a city of 11 million unless this is pretty quickly getting out of control.

    I don't even recall them quarantining whole cities during SARS/MERS but maybe they did. Anyone know?

    Well at least we can all die with some money in our pockets instead of being broke and starving to death under the ones who remain clueless.
