Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) ***W.H.O. DECLARES A GLOBAL PANDEMIC***
******CDC DECLARES LEVEL 2 GLOBAL PANDEMIC******

Global COVID-19 Outbreak Notice

Warning - Level 3, Avoid Nonessential Travel

Alert - Level 2, Practice Enhanced Precautions

Watch - Level 1, Practice Usual Precautions

Alert - Level 2, Sustained Community-Level Transmission—Special Precautions for High-Risk Travelers


Key Points

Sustained community spread of respiratory illness caused by the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) is occurring globally. Some countries have widespread sustained spread.

Older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions are at increased risk for severe disease and should consider postponing nonessential travel.

Travelers should avoid contact with sick people and wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Travelers should monitor their health and limit interactions with others for 14 days after returning from travel.

Travelers that are sick with fever, cough, or have trouble breathing should stay home and call ahead before seeking medical care.

What is the current situation?

Sustained community spread of a respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus (COVID-19) has been reported globally. Sustained community spread means that people have been infected with the virus, but how or where they some of them became infected is not known, and virus transmission is ongoing. At this time there is evidence that COVID-19 is spreading in most regions and has been characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization.

Illness from this virus has ranged from mild to severe. Signs and symptoms of infection include fever, cough, and trouble breathing. This new coronavirus has caused severe disease and death in patients who developed pneumonia. Risk factors for severe illness are not yet clear, although older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness.

What can travelers do to protect themselves and others?

Since older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for severe disease, people in these groups should discuss travel with a healthcare provider and consider postponing nonessential travel.

If you travel, take the following steps:

Avoid contact with sick people.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

Avoid traveling if you are sick.

If you have travelled to any destination during the past 14 days:

Monitor your health and practice social distancing. Social distancing means staying out of crowded places, avoiding group gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.

If you get sick with fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing:

Seek medical advice. Call ahead before going to a doctor’s office or emergency room.

Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.

Avoid contact with others.

Do not travel while sick.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.

Dashboard with confirmed & suspected cases and where they are

- Spreading too fast to keep up with each country here. See Tracker link above for info on where new/current cases


------------------------------


***BREAKING***

- CDC Declares Level 2 Pandemic




***US ALERT***

- Average age of death in US is 80. Over 60 are most at risk.

- Flu is more deadly to young than covid-19, but they can carry virus and put elderly at risk.

- The United States faces an accelerating pace of new coronavirus case reports.

CDC COVID-19 - LINK


------------------------------




------------------------------


Misc.:

- Mortality rate is ~1% (far lower than Sars which was 10%)

- R0 (R-naught) may be around 4-5 but other estimates peg it around 2.5. Either number would mean that the virus will continue to spread within a population. NOTE ON THIS CRITICAL POINT: there is a lot of info out there on R0. I'm listing both numbers that are being put out.

- Coronavirus cases surpass 2003 SARS outbreak in less than a month.

- Comparison to 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic: From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1) pdm09 virus.

-18 Dead (following 1st death outside Wuhan)


I mean, those odds aren't awful, especially considering most of the deaths are poor chinese who likely aren't bastions of health or have hygiene items/proper nutrition to sustain them through this.

Like someone said yesterday....if those are the numbers China is reporting, it’s probably 1000 times that amount. Or more.

There's a lot of blood at his head for him to have just fallen due to sickness. That man appears to have been shot or hit by something and the paramedics are just overly cautious by wearing those suits given how easily this shite is spread.

Sounds like coughing up blood is one of the effects

Maybe if China wasn’t a filthy shite hole these things wouldn’t always originate from there. Research showing it started in their open air butcher markets and likely derived from bats like SARS was.

If you want to see how all this is possible, watch Contagion. It will scare the shite out of you

of all the stuff ive read, id say keeping an eye on the Chinese NBA is the biggest canary in the coal mine. Ol boy on Barstool talked to one of the players over there and he said they are talking about canceling the whole season and that he was coming home soon.

If that happens, hoooo boy. Get that forsythia script ready.

No way they've found and diagnosed a new virus based off 634 people being infected. I'm guessing they left 2 zeros off that estimate.

At this point I'd rather open the borders to the entire middle east than to let one person, American or not, in from China until this is dealt with.

This time is slightly different after the government was embarressed from SARS in 2003-2004 and ASF in 2018-2019. The fatalities and cases may not be exact in magnitude but the proportions I'm hearing match.

Fatality rate is low but the spread is very fast. I was in Shanghai and Beijing last week, as I was leaving you could actually see news about it without using a VPN. CCP isn't fricking around this time.

Just keep in perspective what they did by quarantining Wuhan. Since 1949, China, an autocratic country that has a hukou system where people can't get benefits in towns they move to, who have essentially concentration camps for Uigers but still allow them to travel, that was set up by Mao so that every province was self sufficient since he was so paranoid about get invaded... has NEVER completely blocked travel and quarantined an area (Tianenman Square wasn't even blockaded, just sprayed with bullets).

Until now.
