So the UK got the first case with someone contracting the virus without any contact from anyone overseas or exposed to the virus. He got it homegrown, just like the woman in California.

Just more confirmation that this is out in the wild.

There is also some great reporting from Reuters in Northern Italy. There are towns in that region that have saw 4% of the population contract the disease. According to their estimates, it looks like the RO number is around 2. So two people for every one person infected. Seasonal influenza sticks to around 1.3 people.

When WHO declares it a pandemic next week, the panic will get worse.

My company in MA started putting out memos this afternoon.

I would be so happy to work from home.

Great, and I hope they're not the only ones, but it's definitely not good form to say "we're just weeks away" unless you're in production with a working vaccine.




Hopefully they will pull through with their optimistic estimate and actually have a product in the next month, it would certainly go a long way towards easing tensions if there are still hotspots going then.

My guess is that an infected person, with or without symptoms, touched a counter at a fast food restaurant or coffee shop and dropped off some virus love, which was then picked up by these people. No way to directly connect the carrier to the newly infected person.

When WHO declares it a pandemic next week, the panic will get worse.
And if people panic there's where 10x as many people or more who will get hurt or die than from the virus itself.
