fyi

The rapid increase in reported deaths and illnesses does not necessarily mean the crisis is getting worse. It could instead reflect better monitoring and reporting of the newly discovered virus, which can cause cold- and flu-like symptoms, including cough, fever and shortness of breath, but can worsen to pneumonia.

"It's still too early to draw conclusions about how severe the virus is because at the beginning of any outbreak you would focus more on the severe cases," said Tarik Jasarevic, a spokesman for the World Health Organization in Geneva. "And then maybe we are missing some mild cases because people will just be a little bit sick and will not have it tested. And they will recover."

SARS, which started in China in late 2002 and killed more than 750 people, was a coronavirus.

Just announced the Chinese have sent in the military to Wuhan

As I say - watch the vids that are filtering out. There are the bodies just lying there as stated. I provided good links. There are more coming.

14 Doctors and Nurses became infected from just one patient who they didn't even know had the virus.

Hong Kong Doctors are demanding border closure.

US flying everyone out.

It's hot news and for a good reason.

I don’t know. If the videos are true, the numbers aren’t.

But I question the numbers anyhow.

But much is still unknown about the newly identified virus, including how easily it is transmitted and how often it causes severe disease that can lead to death. Many of those who died in China were elderly individuals with pre-existing chronic conditions that may have made them more vulnerable to the infection.

Health officials around the world are alarmed, but it’s hard to accurately assess the lethality of a new virus. On Thursday, the World Health Organization declined to declare the outbreak a global health emergency.

“When we get a new infectious disease, we learn about the most severe cases first, the top of the pyramid, as it were,” said Dr. William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “As the investigation goes on, we often learn there are less severely infected people, and even people who are infected who don’t get sick at all.”

At least 1,300 people are known to have been infected, and at least 41 have died. Most of those infected lived in Wuhan, a city of 11 million in central China, or had recently traveled there.

Of those who died, many were older men with pre-existing chronic health problems, like diabetes and high blood pressure, that made them susceptible to complications.
At this time, it still seems to me to be yet another apocalyptic scare with very little evidence to back it up. I don't know why the WHO do this. Have they not read Aesop's fable about the boy who cried wolf? One day there really will be a pandemic that threatens the human race and nobody will believe them. Do they need to justify their existence? Are they looking for more funding? What exactly is really going on?

At this time, this new virus seems to be nothing more than a different strain of influenza, a virus which kills many thousands of elderly, very young and those with pre-existing medical conditions every year anyway. It has been a concern among the medical profession for over two hundred years and scientists are still trying to find a cure for it, but it's nothing new.

Someone or something seems to me, to be deliberately creating a mass hysteria over something that, as of yet, is nothing more than an outbreak of an annual illness that occurs naturally anyway.

I'm not buying it. (yet) Especially after the other recent apocalyptic events that the WHO told us we were on the brink of yet came to nothing.

I'm not sure what you wish to accomplish with your silly fear mongering.
