    My sister in law does and there's been a case scare in the hospital she works in. My brother is very undeniably worried. Of course shit is hitting the fan at the hospital with procedures etc. It's all good so far. The Chicago area hospitals are all in full alert, obviously.
    Just go for it!

    Good news is that Thai doctors claim to have come up with a cocktail of flu meds and HIV meds that knocks this out in 48 hours.

    Hope they're right

    yes. This is a "novel" virus..,something not seen before and so there is no experience to know what this is capable of. Strains of the Coronavirus have been the cause of Sars outbreaks and Mers outbreaks. This virus is 80% similar to SARS which had a high mortality rate of 10-12% MERS had a mortality rate of 37%, very dangerous

    As many as 15% of the early presenters ended up not just hospitalized but in intensive care with this thing attacking the lungs. If 15% of people presenting with flu symptoms ended up in intensive care, no nation would be able to treat everyone

    That is why they had to build the hospitals in China. Imagine that world wide

    Another issue is that people exposed to this virus are contagious before they show symptoms. And incubation is 10-15 days, not the 2-3 days of a normal influenza or coronavirus. That is a lot of people exposed before anyone knows they are carriers.

    Other complications, are that this virus can be spread so easily without direct contact and that it can be in the body for a long time with no symptoms . Also this virus seems to linger. It's not like the 4 or 5 day flu. This thing hangs on for weeks, damaging the lungs and liver and weakening the patient

    Understood, and I am gravely concerned for the citizens of Wuhan. But most other cities around the world, including most other cities in China, have very few cases. The reaction and the panic is totally out of proportion to the severity of the disease and how widespread it is. If a country like say Denmark has 1 case, is it reasonable to go into panic mode? Especially since they have other much more pressing issues to tackle. With social media, the fear spreads, with everyone getting emotional, and then even governments make decisions based on it, on the public's mood, disconnected from any serious scientific counsel.

    Over 500 now dead

    But this is tragic.

    A doctor in Wuhan who was punished by China for posting things online waring of the Coronavirus back in DECEMBER, has now contracted the disease himself and died.

    The government hauled him into a meeting and accused him of making false statements and disturbing social order. He was warned to stop talking about it or face criminal charges

    In January the government was claiming that there were no new cases, but this doctor had become exposed to the virus from one of his patients and a few days later was needing hospitalization. At his point he gave interviews from his hospital bed stating that the government should have listened and acted more aggressively sooner. One month later he was dead

    His family is also ill as he had passed the virus to them.

    i agree, except I will put in one caveat. They don't yet know (at least as of an article I read yesterday) how it is transmitted, and that makes pandemic experts nervous.

    But agree, a handful of cases in countries with hundreds of millions of citizens isn't cause for alarm...yet.
