“...the virus is infectious during incubation, which was not the case with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), a coronavirus that originated in China and killed nearly 800 people globally in 2002 and 2003.”
Yeah, that’s going to be ugly.
Team Romney-Soros brings death again
AND will continue UNTIL they succeed.
Virus prompts temperature checks, extra cleaning at airports (thermal camera monitor & temp guns)
Does anyone not think this was done on purpose? Soros...Clinton... China...Jarrett??? CIA? Dumpster fire...chaos...currency...trade...impeachment not going their way...
Never let a crisis, real or manufactured, go to waste.
Do surgical masks really work?
Officials address CDC confirmation of first case of coronavirus in Chicago area.
Amid the deadly outbreak of coronavirus in China thats killed at least 26 people and sickened hundreds of others, officials in the country are encouraging the public to wear surgical masks to prevent the spread of disease. Demands for the masks have skyrocketed, with many retailers unable to keep up.
But the question remains: Do surgical masks really work?

Surgical masks will not prevent your acquiring diseases, said Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University, and the medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, to Fox News.
Rather, he explained, surgical masks are typically used by surgeons to protect their patients from their mouth-borne germs but those masks don’t work to prevent inhaling diseases, said Schaffner.
The masks, which cover the nose and mouth, are often made from a flimsy material and arent fitted to the face. In other words, spaces and gaps can form around the cheeks and edges of the mouth, making it easy for air to move in and out.

When coughing, you can feel the puffs of air coming out of the mask, he said.
That said, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is currently recommending anyone infected with the novel coronavirus or being tested for it to wear a surgical mask when in public. And one infectious disease physician told The New York Times the masks could block large respiratory droplets from entering your body when an infected person sneezes or coughs. These large droplets are largely behind the spread of coronaviruses, the physician said.
A more protective mask, known as an N-95 respirator, may be more effective, said Schaffner. But, he noted, a non-medical professional using this mask is likely not using it correctly, doing little to prevent the spread of illness or inhaling a disease.
The chance of the average person going into a pharmacy, wearing them correctly and for long periods of time is unlikely, he said.
Before people begin to panic about the Chinky virus, remember that the media over hypes and gets everything wrong, especially regarding science.
