So a guy got it from his wife in the week before she developed symptoms.

The danger is real, but this isn't a sign of anything.

FTA: The first human-to-human transmission of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus has occurred in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.

I know this is picky, but it should really read: The first confirmed case ofhuman-to-human transmission of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus has occurred in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.

You don't know if it's the first.

Not too worried. If some 60-year-old woman has had it for a few weeks and still isn't dead, we're probably not talking about Plague 2: Wuhan Boogaloo here.

The rest of the world (particularly the US and Canada) has a luxury that China does not: the ability to take the cases in small volumes as they come. We're not packed into huge cities like sardines and don't crowd into markets to buy exotic animals to see them slaughtered in front of us. There are a few hundred people in a nation of three-hundred million being monitored for this.

Wash your hands. Stay at home when you're sick, and get you flu and pneumococcal vaccinations.

The death rate is not a problem yet. The  capability of this virus to incapacitate large metropolitan areas is the problem.

So you have to be fairly intimate with a person who has it. I still think most of the US is relatively safe.

Trump promised to strengthen the US Public Health Care system during his campaign. So it's relevant. And of course he hasn't done shift.

They've been saying it is human-to-human transmissible for a while now.  This is not new news.

Meanwhile, 15 million people in the U.S have gotten the flu this season and almost 9,000 have died from it, but sure, freak out about this.

I reserve the right to freak out if this turns out to be Captain Trips.

Derangement?  Budget cuts of 12% to Dept. of Health and 10% budget cut to the CDC, and note nearly a third of that cut comes from emerging and zoonotic disease response.

that goes on top of 2 previous years of cuts.  In addition to that failure, 50,000 public health jobs unfilled, thanks to the rampant cockshamery.

The NIH budget has ticked up in annual increments of about $2 billion to $3 billion, rising from about $30 billion in fiscal 2015 to $39.3 billion in fiscal 2019. The White House asked Congress to cut NIH funding to $34.4 billion in fiscal 2020.

One of my former coworkers is from Hyderabad. She said she hadn't seen so many people with allergies until she came to the United States. And she's from a caste that has the means to obtain an education and career abroad, and an improved standard of living at home. God only knows what the lower castes have to deal with.
