She gave the example of a man in Zhejiang in eastern China who reported symptoms but said he had not had any contact with anyone from Wuhan. "Then we checked the data and found that he had been in contact with three people from the epidemic area," Li said.

I try to avoid people from Alabama and Mississippi, but surely 3 of them have crossed my path in the last 24 hours.

I heard someone reading a Taiwanese twitter feed from an anti-Chinese celebrity that they had a friend in Wuhan, who told them the anti-vaxxers in the city were the only ones still allowed to roam free, and they are totally immune, somehow.

I guess you have to have your Tetanus shot up to date, or you can't even get the Hong Kong Fluey.

It's a Spanish movie called REC, and it's fantastic. Just don't watch the dubbed version, the English dubbing is terrible and ruins the tension.

GungFu: 'nCoV'? Is that the sexy new name they're trying to make official?

Too late. It's Wuhan Flu for everyone. Like 'Spanish Flu' for the Spaniards*. Suck it up, Wuhan Clan.

HUGE benefit to dealing with people dying of pneumonia:  They don't run very far, and can't put up much of a fight.  If they are doing this to people who are healthy, it might go very differently?

I mean, if we tried to lock down the Ozarks the success rate would be ... what, 30%?  The rest escaped by boat, tunnel, bribes, or got killed in shoot-outs with the military.

Bingo.
This is exactly the type of crisis that could trigger unrest or worse.
Of course, so are the suppression tactics being used.

I work in an industry where we have several Chinese suppliers. All are still closed, but most are scheduled to come back online in the next week or two. If shipments resume, then this will blow over, but if supply chains get heavily disrupted, this may cause a seismic change in the future of China as the world's manufacturing center.

I'm not sure the risk of disease is gone, but it sounds like the Chinese government considers the risk to business worse. Here's hoping that Xi Jinping's roll of the bones doesn't end up making a mountain of bones.

It's spreading around a bit too much to be made up, now.  I'm still not sure how bad it really is, but it seems like it's pretty bad if we're having flare-ups in Japan, Spain, France, England, US, etc.

This could be the zerg rush we weren't prepared for.

Jade Helm conspiracy bullshiat got so popular that the Governor of Texas called out the Texas National Guard to "monitor" the situation. The "caravans" were such a "threat" before the election that Trump deployed the army to the border. Then vanished like a fart in the wind after the election. Ebola was going to end the world back in 2014/2015 to the point were governors were quarantining non-symptomatic aid workers coming back from Africa. Don't discount social media and a compliant media's ability to make a world threatening crisis out of a minor or non-existent threat.

Didn't you know? IF you question the claims that the Chinese government is Cask-of-Amontilladoing people (like that would even *WORK*?), you're clearly just a CCP propaganda shill.

or something.
