People are collapsing on Wuhan streets - ***W.H.O. DECLARES A GLOBAL HEALTH EMERGENCY***
This ain't promising.

I'll try not to list any rumors here. Plenty of that going around. Below is confirmed info.


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


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*** 2/12/2020: Epicenter of coronavirus outbreak reports 14,840 new cases, including clinically diagnosed cases, and 242 new deaths



***ALERT***
W.H.O. Declares a Global Health EMERGENCY.

The World Health Organization has declared the epidemic an international public health emergency, acknowledging that the virus represents a risk outside of China.

The declaration — officially called a Public Health Emergency of International Concern — serves notice to all United Nations member states that the world’s top health advisory body rates the situation as serious.

Countries can then decide whether to close their borders, cancel flights, screen people arriving at airports or take other measures.

The decision came as cases have begun to appear in people who had not traveled to China during the outbreak.

***ALERT***
The U.S. reported its first case of human-to-human transmission


***ALERT***
15th U.S. case of coronavirus confirmed in US as of 2/13.

***DEVELOPING*** 2/12: Coronavirus Test Kits Sent to States Are Flawed, C.D.C. Says


***DEVELOPING*** 2/12: Top CDC official says US should prepare for coronavirus 'to take a foothold'





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


2/13 BY THE NUMBERS:

***BREAKING*** 2/13: China announced about 4,800 new cases and 116 new deaths in Hubei province a day after health officials increased the province’s case numbers by 15,000 when they began taking into account cases diagnosed by doctors using clinical methods.


- 63,000+ confirmed cases worldwide

- 1,489fatalities

- 9600+ in serious/critical condition

- 3,750+ recovered

- ~500 cases of the new coronavirus disease outside China, in 25 countries.

- Largest cluster of infections is aboard the Diamond Princess, a cruise ship quarantined in the port of Yokohama, Japan. Around 175 infections (20+ of which are Americans).




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




To summarize where we are at this point:

- Mortality rate is ~2% (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.

- Roughly 56 million people in 18 cities in central China, including Wuhan, at the epicenter of the outbreak first detected last month, were under lock down as public transportation halted.

- Delta, United and American Airlines are suspending all flights between the U.S. and mainland China.

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

- U.S. Temporarily Bars Foreigners Who Visited China

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.

They're what China is admitting to so far.

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.
