  • https://www.doomandbloom.net/a-new-pneumonia/ >>> Dr Bones is concerned about a new Chinese breakout - you should be also ...

  • Health authorities in China are reporting 60 cases or more of a previously unknown viral pneumonia that has put dozens in the hospital. Officials note that victims exhibit fever up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, difficulty breathing, and abnormal findings on chest X-rays
  • Nothing gets my attention like a mysterious, probably viral, pneumonia showing up in some foreign land. In the last decade or so, killers like Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) have entered the scene. The current infection doesn’t seem to be either of these, and lab studies have already eliminated influenza, avian flu, most bacteria, and other possible culprits. A number of victims were found to have attended a seafood market in the area.

Chinese tourists over here don't seem to get any further than London.
maybe China has an agreement with your muslims to share everything 50-50 >>>> over here they have a jail full arrested for espionage of military facilities - 5 arrested in the last 45 days - this not including the out & out dedicated undercover spies like Sen Warren's long time limo driver ...

Pandemics are tough to prep for. If, or when a deadly one starts spreading in the cities it’s time to stop going out anywhere. That’s where being as self sufficient as possible comes in. Avoiding contact with people is the only way to be certain of not getting it.

CDC confirms first US case of Wuhan coronavirus

The United States has its first confirmed case of a new virus that appeared in Wuhan, China, last month, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday. The virus has already sickened hundreds and killed six people in Asia.
The male patient is in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington. He is a resident of Snohomish County in Washington.

I'm always worried when it spreads,where is patient zero in the new region? what worries me even more is that is has done so,China is pretty good in setting perimeters around things in their country to contaign shit...and it has done so now..

This isn’t a good thing by any means, but luckily the death rate is low. I read 4 with 200 infected. Those aren’t terrible odds. Ebola has a terrible death rate, luckily this isn’t nearly so deadly. I will say though, it is only a matter of time before a really bad new virus does pop up. This virus is bad enough though that you definitely want to practice good hygiene and protocol. Wash hands often, don’t touch your face, mouth or nose, avoid heavily populated places, etc.

Problem is it appears to be air born and does not required touching the infected person or infected fluids, like Ebola. Current death rate is 2 percent, per Brent numbers but wait until it expands to those less immune. Not a good situation. Close the border to all that have visited infected area. There are reports of infected persons in Japan, S. Korea and I think Australia. Better too much prevention, than a global pandemic.

With as interconnected as the world is today I don’t think it’s possible to effectively stop something from spreading anymore. We have created the perfect scenario for a virus. In nature herds get thinned out when needed. I don’t think this virus will be anything like 1917 but agree there will be pain and suffering. Even if this bug doesn’t kill with high rates it could still strain our hospitals to the breaking point,so it’s not a good thing by any means.

Start Googling and make yourself the "specialist" for your own hospital Jontte. Get the info, write a paper and hang it up in the break room for your colleagues to read when they take a eating or smoke break. Know your enemy!!! Inform your friends!!! Too much knowledge is about like too much money...GP

I saw a news article about a potential case in TX from a university student who had studied abroad in China. And they are now thinking it is transmitted between humans more easily than they originally thought. And it might have come from snakes.
