Would there be more money made selling a vaccine to a billion people on this planet that are likely to get this virus,,, or a medicine to cure and give to those that get the virus ?
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

It would depend on the cost of a vaccine and the cost of treatment (Anti-Virals), and probably more importantly who is going to pay for them !!!!!, Gov or private citizens .

The UK gov spent £424 million on stockpiling Tamiflu just in case there was an outbreak and £136 Million on anti-virals (Relenza (zanamivir) to treat flu victims, don't think that would happen here..

Total cases in South Korea have doubled each day for the past 5 days. It doesn't take much more doubling to get to total panic.

Only 28 total reported in Iran to date, but 9 deaths already. That's nearly a 33% death rate. So expect the reported cases numbers there to skyrocket.

And that Simone Gao chick is hot.

This shows that the country's medical facility and the government is the worse in the world, even far behind Cambodia and Philippines. They spent all their focuses on building nuclear bombs and rockets

lol
at least iran can detect it
those morbidity stats are worrying

i'm fairly confident there are cases here already
are there any models showing expected spread without any realistic attempt at containment?
if infectivity holds, i'd say we have a problem by kny

And here are some fully stocked supermarket shelves in North Korea. It's obviously a food paradise for all people there! And see how happy she looks.

Iran is an interesting case insofar as they have very little direct "interaction" with China, compared with many other countries that have much fewer (or zero, LOL) confirmed cases. That does make you wonder.
