Wanted to put this here for the naysayers. The most pertinent fact at this point-
The virus is doubling exponentially every 1.71 days.
So unless something changes, ie it mutates into a less virulent form, this will be a pandemic.
Not hype, simple math.
Semi-log plot of confirmed cases and deaths indicates the epidemic is in an exponential phase. Doubling time is 1.71 days (95% Confidence_interval 1.64 to 1.79) for case numbers.
enya and Ethiopia this week received the first cases of the coronavirus in Africa Quartzafrica reports. Kenya’s first suspected case was brought in by a student who flew into Nairobi from China and was quarantined at Kenyata National Hospital whilst 4 suspected cases of the coronavirus have been isolated in Adis Ababa Ethiopia.

Gilead assessing potential use of Ebola drug as China virus treatment. If that drug works with this virus it means virus has receptors which puzzle pieces antagonists that match to those of ebola ? there were also other post about HIV medicine which could work with this disease. There has been targeted medicines for decades like dopamine etc. It is very intresting they are going to try these. Maybe they know something we don´t ?
Here, we show that remdesivir (RDV) and IFNb have superior antiviral activity to LPV and RTV in vitro. In mice, both prophylactic and therapeutic RDV improve pulmonary function and reduce lung viral loads and severe lung pathology.

Yes we're sure not one single person died when it was 1st discovered in China either, what an ignorant thing to say.
