Maybe this will get China to stop these dumb ass open markets with raw food next to live ****ing animals in the same place for sale.

We need to work on bringing the entire planet into first world problems, or **** like this will keep happening.

Somebody will still end up ****ing a monkey or a goat though...

Officials Confirm Bay Area’s First Case of Coronavirus in Santa Clara County
Quote:
Santa Clara County health officials on Friday announced that a resident of the county has tested positive for the new coronavirus, marking the first confirmed case in the Bay Area and seventh nationwide.
Quote:
The man was never sick enough to be hospitalized and “self-isolated” by staying home, she said.

The man left home twice to seek outpatient care at a local clinic and a hospital. Public health officials are now trying to reach anyone he may have come into contact with during those times to assess whether they were exposed to the virus.

Those people, along with the few members of his household, will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine.

So the medical journal The Lancet estimated that approximately 75,000 people were infected with this novel corona virus and the most recent estimate I saw on CNN stated that China has attributed 300 deaths to this virus.

Taking 300 deaths divided by 75,000 infected means 0.4% of people infected die. Now there are a lot of factors (i.e., the state/availability of quality health care for those most affected -the Chinese, who are the people who died - young and old or is it across the board, etc.).

However, just taking 0.4% and multiplying it by the estimated 7.53 billion inhabitants (Google's 2017 estimate) of this planet means 30,120,000+ potentially dead if the virus spreads unchecked. Just a thought

don't forget china's been fudging the death numbers. If you die at home, or die before they can do the test on you they mark your death as something else.

Wuhan Coronavirus Looks Increasingly Like a Pandemic, Experts Say

Rapidly rising caseloads alarm researchers, who fear the virus may make its way across the globe. But scientists cannot yet predict how many deaths may result.


Quote:
The Wuhan coronavirus spreading from China is now likely to become a pandemic that circles the globe, according to many of the world’s leading infectious disease experts.

The prospect is daunting. A pandemic — an ongoing epidemic on two or more continents — may well have global consequences, despite the extraordinary travel restrictions and quarantines now imposed by China and other countries, including the United States.

Scientists do not yet know how lethal the new coronavirus is, however, so there is uncertainty about how much damage a pandemic might cause. But there is growing consensus that the pathogen is readily transmitted between humans.

The Wuhan coronavirus is spreading more like influenza, which is highly transmissible, than like its slow-moving viral cousins, SARS and MERS, scientists have found.

They really need a better name than "that coronavirus from Wuhan, China" because everyone else gets cool stuff like MERS or SARS.

Associated Press

· A man in the Philippines has become the first person to die of the Wuhan coronavirus outside of China.

· The victim, a 44-year-old man, died on Saturday in Manila. He had travelled to the Philippines from Wuhan.

· He experienced a "fever, cough & sore throat" before being admitted to hospital, according to the World Health Organization.

· Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

A man in the Philippines has died of the Wuhan coronavirus, the first confirmed fatality outside of China.

The victim was a 44-year-old man, according to the World Health Organization's Philippines branch, who posted the news on Twitter Sunday morning.

"A 44-year-old male is confirmed as the second person with the 2019 novel coronavirus acute respiratory disease (2019-nCoV) in the Philippines. He passed away on 1 February 2020," the WHO said.


"The 44-year-old male experienced fever, cough & sore throat before being admitted at San Lazaro Hospital," the WHO said in a second tweet.

The man, and a 38-year-old Chinese woman travelling with him, were the only two confirmed cases in the country, the Philippines Department of Health said in a press conference on Sunday.

They arrived together from Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, via Hong Kong.

"This is the first reported death outside China. However, we need to take into mind that this is not a locally acquired case. This patient came from the epicenter of this outbreak," Rabindra undefined, WHO representative to the Philippines, said at the press conference.

On Sunday, the country's president, Rodrigo Duterte, banned anyone coming to the country from China who wasn't Filipino.

The total death toll now stands at more than 300, with 14,380 infections across 24 countries.

China's National Health Commission (NHC) issued new regulations Saturday stating that all victims who succumb to the virus in China must be cremated at the nearest facility.

"No farewell ceremonies or other funeral activities involving the corpse shall be held," the NHC announcement reads.

(That puts it at about 2.1% death rate with now) 2 out of ever 100 is not bad odds. Still I would not want to bet my life on those as it is my life)

I wanted to take my daughters out for Chinese food and they wouldn't because of this thing.

Get a grip world!
