Notice it said Beijing and not Wuhan?
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's life, it's worth it.
That it's a new one, not SARS, MERS, or something else that they've seen.
New. In the same sense that a manuscript of a certain longer than normal length was regarded as novel, and that became the name for the type of book that fills our bookshelves today.
For every one of these that are trickling in there are 20 or more in China Town in the major cities
Great. SHE’S quarantined.
What about the 200+ people she may have infected on the plane???
Or are they just trying to put out the fires as they pop up around the country?
Nonsense! The Johns Hopkins web site shows that the cases occurring in the U.S. are NOT spread evenly. They have occurred in cities where one would expect travel from China; e.g. Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago.
The John Hopkins map shows no cases confirmed in the southeast or the midwest. Chicago and Wisconsin are the closest to being in the middle of the country.
There are only 11 cases in the U.S. and fewer than 300 which have been confirmed worldwide outside of China. Containment has been working, so far.
The huge number of cases in China is a puzzle, but probably due to their hygiene and proclivity to mix humans and livestock.
If you could have completely shut the borders three weeks ago it would have been too late. We have probably been getting infected individuals from China since early January or even December. Its here and its going to run it’s course.
Did you notice that it said she was exposed to known cases?
By the way they call this New Crown Pneumonia in China. It’s a pneumonia that is highly communicable which is why the US press doesn’t call it pneumonia.
WHO is demanding we drop travel restrictions
What happened to the "abundance of caution" I keep reading about? They are letting him stay AT HOME?
Until the next new / novel coronavirus shows up in 3...2...1...
Will that be Son of Novel? Novel2? Novelrama?
...and recent arrivals from those countries should be put in isolation wards in hospitals for two weeks, symptoms or no symptoms.
When I got Hep A in Mexico and returned to the states, I was immediately hospitalized in isolation for two weeks. That was back in 1977.
I noticed that, but all the noise from the poo-pooers and pearl clutchers is drowning out any chance at a reasonable discussion.
27,602 confirmed cases worldwide, including 564 fatalities.
...according to the site people use for the Commies' "Party Approved" numbers.
Remember, 2 weeks ago we were at a couple hundred confirmed cases.
And they were quarantining 11 million people over it during Chinese New Year...this was even before all the desperate Tweets, WeChats, and YouTubes escaped into the big wide world.
Only one new coronavirus is allowed per calendar year.
Whew...thanks for setting my mind at ease.
The case is in Madistan, so socialist media will soon be reporting about how libtards of all oppressed demographics will be hardest hit...
