I don't want to alarm anyone, but there is a virus spreading fairly rapidly in China which is potentially fatal. Symptoms include fever, coughing, difficult breathing, sneezing, headaches, and potentially kidney failure.
Several cases of this coronavirus have been identified outside of China, with one case (to my knowledge) so far confirmed in the US.
Please see a doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms.

They thought it wasnt human-to-human initially, but either they were wrong or its mutations made it so... because it is human-to-human.

We got our first confirmed carrier in Australia today as well.

You would think that they would lock down the 'ports as soon as this sort of thing was discovered.

Seems the best way to combat this is ... washing and keeping clean.

Which means it has been passing by ... not washing or doing the basics right.
My hope is it don’t kill to many. Real talk - this Corona virus is real. My heart and time goes to those who have been effected.

CDC on Sat said it wasn't contagious during incubation period, but today China gov has stated it is.

:ohmy: :blink: !!

This is a problem because the incubation period has no symptoms and lasts 14 days. Being contagious during that time means folks won't know they've got it and inadvertently spread it. The SARS virus by comparison was not contagious during its incubation period.

Some of you who are old enough, in internet years (they're like dog years) will remember this wisdom of Dr McNinja -




Sometimes I am briefly concerned about my personal wellbeing with these outbreaks....then I remember I live in a nowhere town with no direct flights to anywhere interesting, and that, lately, it's been more on fire than not.....


so in terms of issues that mostly affect dense population hubs, I can, if you'll excuse the tasteless metaphor - watch the world burn (whilst I am, in a more literal sense, also watching the world burn)



(Obviously my official view is far more compassionate - I am, for the moment, out of expressionable compassion, and into, uhh....fiddling while rome....burns....so to speak....)
