It’s a major clusterfuck. In Wuhan there are over 18 hospitals, and those are not able to treat 1.000 cases of this infection. That’s 60 people per hospital. I don’t believe any of the official statistics.

Agreed - Epic clusterfuck

There are 13,967 confirmed by the Chinese in quarantine as of yesterday. That's the problem. The suspected cases far outweigh the confirmed.

Trouble is - everyone goes to hospital and if you don't have it you soon will...

Even a doctor treating it passed away.

No need to quarantine people in hospitals, they can use schools, sports halls etc for that.... the hospitals aren’t overloaded with people in quarantine.

Watch the vids - they are packed out with dead bodies on the floor. The twitterverse is good, but people are being arrested for posting.

The virus does not just manifest itself with a cough and difficulty breathing, apparently, some have no fever, joint pains, and diarrhea. If one has no fever then the screening of passengers of incoming Chinese tourists by body temperature is ineffective.


New coronavirus can cause infections with no symptoms and sicken otherwise healthy people, studies show

Well until today it wasn't even mentioned on the People's Daily Commie Mouthpiece.

You know the Great Firewall.

It's a fantastic effort by the Chinese and I think this time they are being truthful, unlike SARS.

Here's the official Chinese link : "截至1月24日24时新型冠状病毒感染的肺炎疫情最新情况". 25 January 2020. http://www.nhc.gov.cn/xcs/yqtb/202001/a ... 29e6.shtml

Here's a nurse from Wuhan.

They are seriously dropping dead in the streets.

There are many videos - streets, car parks, malls, shops.

Mind blowing.

Update - US is evacuating China - citizens also.

U.S. to evacuate its citizens from Wuhan, China - WSJ

(Reuters) - The United States is arranging a charter flight on Sunday to bring its citizens and diplomats back from the Chinese city of Wuhan, epicentre of the outbreak of a new coronavirus, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday.

The plane, with around 230 people, will carry diplomats from the U.S. consulate as well as U.S. citizens and their families, the Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the operation.

Washington was given approval for the operation from China’s Foreign Ministry and other government agencies following negotiations in recent days, the newspaper said.

The decision to move U.S. consulate staff and families was due to the outbreak of the coronavirus “and logistical disruptions stemming from restricted transportation and overwhelmed hospitals in the city of Wuhan,” the spokesperson said in a statement emailed to Reuters.
