    Coronavirus?

    What's your opinion of this?

    Blown way out of proportion as was SARS, MERS, H1N1?

    Or is it the next Flu pandemic like 1918?

    News reports are all over the spectrum.

        Just saw an article claiming the Chinese are building hospitals at the rate of 1 per 2 (yes 2) days. Claims over 1,000 new cases reported.

        Saw a video last night supposedly from BBC that allegedly shows people literally collapsing in the streets of some Chinese city from the illness and being taken away in hazmat vehicles.

        OTOH, there were wild reports of SARS etc cases too so....

            CNN)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 coronavirus has already sickened hundreds and killed six people in Asia.

            CDC officials said the United States will be more strict about health screenings of airplane passengers arriving from Wuhan.
            The patient, who is not being named, is in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington. He is in his 30s and lives in Snohomish County, Washington, just north of Seattle. He had recently returned from Wuhan.Coronavirus explained: What you need to know
            He arrived at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on January 15, before any health screenings for the Wuhan coronavirus began at US airports. He sought medical care on January 19. The CDC and Washington state are now tracing the people he was in contact with to see if he might have spread the disease to someone else.
            "We believe the risk to the public is low," said John Wiesman, secretary of health for the state of Washington.
            The patient became ill four days after arriving in the United States and sought care. Based on the patient's symptoms and travel history, doctors suspected the novel Wuhan coronavirus and sent specimens to the CDC in Atlanta, where tests Monday confirmed the virus.
            The patient is faring well but is still being kept in isolation out of an abundance of caution, health officials said. Health screenings at more US airports


            Soon, passengers from Wuhan to the United States, whether on direct or indirect flights, will only be allowed to land at one of the five US airports doing health screenings. Screenings include a temperature check and observation for symptoms such as a cough and trouble breathing.
            China is trying to stop the spread of a deadly new virus at the worst possible time of year
            Last weekend, the CDC started health screenings for Wuhan passengers arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.
            Starting this week, Wuhan passengers will also be screened at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Chicago O'Hare International Airport.
            The CDC raised its travel notice for Wuhan, China, from level 1 to level 2 of three possible levels, according to its website. As of Tuesday afternoon, the agency advised travelers to "practice enhanced precautions." The highest level, "Warning - Level 3," advises travelers to "avoid nonessential travel." Person-to-person transmission of Wuhan virus


            The Wuhan coronavirus is in the same family as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, which killed more than 700 people in 2002 and 2003, and Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS.
            To date, the Wuhan coronavirus has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US.

            It's not known how many of the cases became infected from animals and how many from another person.
            On Tuesday, the CDC activated its emergency response system in response to the Wuhan coronavirus. The CDC activates this system on a temporary basis to centralize how the agency monitors, prepares for and responds to public health threats.
            The outbreak started in late December at an animal market in Wuhan, about 700 miles south of Beijing. The virus can jump from animals to people. While there's much to learn about how easily the virus can be transmitted human-to-human, health officials said it appears that it's not spread as easily as some other viruses.
            "This isn't anywhere near in the same category as measles or the flu," Dr. Martin Cetron, director of CDC's division of global migration and quarantine, told CNN.

            CNN's Michael Nedelman contributed to this report.

              I spoke to a guy I work with who's wife is from Wuhan. She still has her family there.

              He said her family told them the city is on total lock down.
              No trains, buses, planes in/out.
              Medical style masks are sold out.
              Food prices have tripled and supermarkets are starting to have bare shelves.
              The gov is trying to cancel all the Chinese New Year celebrations both in Wuhan and other cities so people don't congregate together and spread the virus.
              However, from what they see the actual infection and illness rate and severity is still very low.
              Not apocalyptic (yet).

                  Coronavirus outbreak: Video shows dead bodies in halls of China hospital

                  Coronavirus outbreak: Video shows dead bodies in halls of China hospital

                  Play Video

                  Disturbing new video shows dead bodies piling up in the hallways of a hospital in China, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spiral out of control.

                  The images from inside Red Cross Hospital in Wuhan, the city at the epicenter of the deadly viral outbreak, show covered bodies lining corridors as staffers and patients walk about with masks on their faces.

                  The video, which has been widely shared on social media, was verified by Storyful on Friday.

                  Officials in Wuhan are scrambling to build a 1,000-bed hospital to address the burgeoning need for treatment of patients sickened by the coronavirus — which has killed at least 26 people and infected hundreds of others.

                  The new 270,000-square-foot facility is expected to be up and running by Feb. 3.

                  Wuhan, a city of over 11 million residents, has been on lockdown amid the outbreak, which has been linked to a seafood market there that sold exotic wildlife for human consumption.

                      SARS is a coronavirus - they are viruses that jump from animals to ppl and can turn into some nasty stuff or be nothing. Either way there is no cure so when it’s bad it can be bad.

                      China’s response is either one of two reasons:

                      - over reaction due to their lying and poor handling of the SARS cases

                      - something to be taken seriously

                      I’m just happy the media is reporting on something else

                        I tell everyone who talks to me about global warming that there is not a person alive today that will catastrophically affected by global warming. A worldwide pandemic, is a much greater risk. I see the planet as self regulated, too many people making too much mess, boom, automatic herd culling.
