First real case in Texas.
FYI, that case is a person who was extracted from the Wuhan province by the US State Dept. He is being held at one of the San Antonio Military Bases in quarantine. While it is a 'real' case, he came here under quarantine and was (hopefully) kept fully isolated the whole time. I'll be worried in another 7 days or so, when we can check the spread and infection rates ourselves based on the few that were discovered in the states up north.

First death in Japan. Confirmed as Coronavirus only after her death. Transferred between hospitals.

One would hope they considered her infectious where ever she was.

8 planes locked down at Heathrow.

Boy I bet that’s fun.

Passenger from San Fransisco told someone they felt sick.

Oh joy.

Documented the Coronavirus, now they have vanished.

Disease modelers say 4.4 million will die. I guess probably as accurate as Climate modelers. Its all about the funding.

Harvard guy says 40% to 70% of people on Earth will get it. If he is right, then all this below is unnecessary.

So Imagine for a moment I’m a military strategist in China.

I’m realizing that if this gets bad it may militarily weaken my country badly. It might come to the point that other adventurist countries might take advantage of my weakened situation.

I would fly ununiformed soldiers with lots of cash to spend for a big extended holiday in Mexico and Africa. I would instruct them to visit as many public gatherings as possible. Eat out drink and be merry. I would casually introduce them to infected people before they leave. Tell them if they get sick to come to the embassy.

Mexico and Africa would be ideal as they have poor healthcare and porous borders with my enemies.

Just thinking.

OK it is serious now, Apple will not meet its revenue guidance because of constrained iPhone supply.

My greatest fear on this outbreak is that the global economy stumbles (or worse) and the dems are able to score points off a weaker US economy in November.

It’s dangerous to base your campaign on a great economy alone.

Agreed... I think he's done a good job of touting all of his accomplishments but the one thing that is killing the dems is the economy... and I think it;s the only thing that could derail it all.

Political ramifications aside, I'm praying for containment and a vaccine asap.

Small Sample (January) Coronavirus Hits 15% Fatality Rate, 83% Infection Rate for Those Exposed

Johns Hopkins Live Dashboard shows that as of Feb 19, 15,090 people have recovered and 2,014 have died. With 2,014 deaths divided by 17,104 combined recovered and dead... That gives an estimated fatality rate of 11.8%

One member of what is described as a cult church infected 37 members of her church, amounting to half of South Korea's cases.

the John Hopkins website seems to show the new cases leveling off, as deaths increase. Recovered is also increasing.

Confirmed cases = 75,777
No symptoms cases number = ?
Moderate flu like cases number =?
hospitalized cases number = ?
serious case cases number = ?
Recovered cases number = 16,888
Dead number = 2130

Recovered but still a carrier number?

They keep monkeying with the way they are reporting these cases. Now they are removing cases where the results don't show the virus per se, but still show genetic markers of the virus?
