    Coronavirus map - Some people may be interested in knowing this info

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    I've been looking at this situation. Here is the sitrep.

    This is what I have been gathering in common open source news (Google News / YouTube / Twitter).
    Like other viruses it can stay dormant for up to 14 days with the the person infected not having any symptoms, yet can spread the virus.

    Unverified / uncorroborated (that I am trying to find more on):
    There is one video supposedly from a nurse over in Wuhan China that states there is 90,000 infected. And they are out of supplies. She also states, that if one person has it, they can infect 14 others even though again that main person does not know they have it.

    There is another video that I watched from a younger man in Wuhan China 20 to 30 yrs old, saying that all transportation is shutdown, also gas stations are closed. So even if you are infected many people won't be able to get / drive to any hospitals, and even if you are able to get to a hospital, they are overpacked and you wait hours and then are out of all medical supplies. They give anti-inflammatory (probably ibuprofen) and that's it.

    Sorry folks... I got a bad "gut feeling" about this one. I'm not a doomsday prepper but I think it great to have all the gear you need.. before bad times come around. I hope I wrong, but I think this will be one of those that will bite every country in the ass before they know it. I also think that this worse than what is being released for information from over in China.

    One map that has "some" metrics:

    During the influenza pandemic of 1918 over 50 million people died.

    Anytime a new bug arrives bad things happen to good and bad people alike.

    True, and we didn't have penicillian back then or the subsequent development of antibiotics we had just 40 years later.

    Our breakthroughs in genetic modification make it easier and quicker to produce vaccines.

    The left coast is being the earliest USA target of this virus. Combine this with the lack of sanitation of the homeless, which is bringing back a lot of older diseases like typhus, and the exploding rat infestations, and things are apt to get out of hand very quickly.

    We are in the time of year when I avoid crowds, don't go into bars very often, and turn around and leave as soon as I get there if they are crowded.

    I try to go to the grocerie store early in the day, and if using a cart, sanitize the handle, and use a hand cleaner as soon as I get to my truck.

    My wife works in the Ivory tower at a local hospital and I just asked her if the hospital was seeing that much flu this year, and she said yes. The hospital requires all staff to get vaccinated or wear masks. My wife is 62, never had the flu and sees no reason to interfere with her otherwise perfect immune system. She will wear a mask, but those in the Ivory tower think it looks bad to have a non complient person in the Ivory Tower, so for the past three years, she hasn't had to wear a mask. Most all people she knws personally at the hospital who have had the flu this year, also had the vacinations.

    With this Corona Virus, the two week time a person is contagious before exhibiting any symptoms is the most disconcerting.

    Ebola, a very freightening quick killer, rarely spreads very far as from the time of infection to illness exhibition is only a matter of hours.

    The mos frightening thought about any of these micro terrorist, is terrorist, or rogue states weaponizing and releasing them into populated areas.

    Thanks Happy Tom for all this gloom and doom. Bye the way, how did you get your name???

    14? That's an odd enough statement to make me doubt the veracity of the "quote." If someone told you "someone with a cold can infect 14 others before they know they have it" what would you think? Because I'd think "that's a meaningless number." How many people they can infect depends far more on their lifestyle and habits (are they an OCD recluse, or a compulsive hugger that seeks out crowds?) matter more than anything except whether the virus is airborne transmissible or how long it survives in air/sunlight.

    But antibiotics aren't much help against viral diseases like this one. Bacteriological, sure, but not viruses.

    And Ebola requires bodily fluid contact. It's almost like an STD in how it spreads - body fluids pretty much are it. There's one Ebola mutation, Ebola Reston, that can be transmitted through air like a cold or flu, but that one is very survivable.

    Jake is right that the two week dormancy period is the most disturbing aspect of this; that's a long time to behave normally and possibly be spreading it. But American health habits helped us show up the doomsayers during the last Ebola outbreak. Those habits will probably help this time too. Yes, the covering your mouth when you cough and washing your hands type habits. They really do help.

    One of the things I told my wife that I'd like to do someday before I die is visit one of the places in China where my Dad flew to during WW2 specifically one of the places the Japanese bombed. He was credited for saving a lot of lives that day, at risk to his own life. I guess I'm going to have to put that trip on hold for awhile.

    .
    Viruses weaken the immune system, making it more vulnerable to bacteriological diseases, and leave the body only to fight the viruse, if antibiotics are administered. Tamiflu is an advancement which has helped a lot with more severe types of flu. Curious to see how treatment for this particular virus will advance, and just how big this new virus will get in terms of continuing to expand.
