    One of the reasons I never go anywhere. You couldn't pay me to get on one of those ships. What a nightmare.

    You just called that kid a monkey. That's racist.

    There were already plans based on one that had to be built during a previous viral outbreak. These are prefab buildings that are thrown up quickly using multiple construction companies

    They are not meant to be permanent structures.

    From what I have read, they opened one hospital in a vacant building, converted another hospital and are building 3 or 4 of these temporary hospitals

    Scary shit

    Yeah, I figured that. Still they threw them up pretty quick. Would have taken the russians 6 months. Lots of D9 excavators at work in those pics.

    Social media is really fucking things up. Imagine a country of 100 billion people. You get 5, 10 or 1000 ppl infected. That's a tiny percentage of the whole population. It would be mostly insignificant compared to the total population. But social media, focusing on a few cases, and then going round and round with them, makes it seem like you and me could get infected at any time! It's really a case of "be afraid, be very afraid." Even 7000 ppl, for China, that's like a tiny drop of water in the ocean compared to the total population. We're all in global panic mode, even though we have the means to contain this and make it go away.

    Email at work this morning:

    Dear caregivers,

    As many of you are aware, a Novel (new) Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has developed in China causing an outbreak of a respiratory illness. There are currently four states in the U.S. with confirmed cases – Arizona, California, Illinois and Washington.

    The most recent development as of Jan. 30, 2020, is now the first confirmed U.S. case of the virus spreading from person-to-person. What this means is these individuals were in close contact with one another. Close contact is considered to be within 6 feet of someone for an extended period of time who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus infection (2019-nCoV).

    We are all seeing a lot of media stories, social media messages and posts, as well as rumors about this. I want to share with you what xxxxxxxxx xxxxxx is doing. We have a multidisciplinary team in place who is meeting each day to address this in order to keep our caregivers safe and provide the right care for our patients.

    We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Updated Novel Coronavirus resources are now available on the intranet. The site provides extensive details on the virus, signs and symptoms, testing resources and how it’s transmitted, as well as how to detect it and protect our caregivers and patients.

    As part of our preparation, we added a travel screening question for any xxxxxxxxx xxxxxx patient. All patients who come to a xxxxxxxxx xxxxxx location with fever or respiratory symptoms will be asked whether they have traveled internationally within two weeks of their symptoms starting.

    Finally, we want to make you aware that as a precautionary measure to protect our caregivers and their families from the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, xxxxxxxxx xxxxxx is stopping all nonessential business travel to China. We are also requesting all caregivers avoid nonessential personal travel to China. If you recently visited China or need to travel there for personal reasons, contact Occupational Health before you return to work. For xxxxxxxxx xxxxxx Canada caregivers only, contact your supervisor.

    This is an evolving situation and we expect more information from our public health partners to help inform our approach going forward. As it is also cold and flu season, we continue to stress the importance of everyday infection prevention such as hand washing and proper cough etiquette.

    We will continue to share updates as appropriate.

    Sincerely,

    xxxxxx xxxxxx, MD
    Chief of Medical Operations
