WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States stands ready to spend up to $100 million to assist China and other countries impacted by coronavirus, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Friday.

There are videos of people displaying altered mental status and seizure like activity. Some respiratory virus strains have shown potential in causing neurological issues if they cross the BBB. We saw it with SARS and we see it rarely in seasonal infections.
Not sure if the implications with a novel strain is different but CoVs cross via the olfactory bulb. Possible, hopefully not likely, the Chinese don’t have the networks available to test for viral RNA or white blood cells in CSF or other areas so it’s only a theory being passed around on social media.
Although the average period of incubation for the coronavirus originating from central China is believed to be about five days, the researchers found that second patients in more than half of the 26 human-to-human infection cases under study developed pneumonia symptoms within five days.
The team concluded that these second patients were infected with the virus during its incubation period for the first patients.
called for preventive measures as well as reinforcing the medical care system against a potential sharp rise in coronavirus patients, rather than focusing exclusively on isolation as a way to contain the disease.

Well isn't this special! I came across this article about Florida and how they handle suspected infected people and apparently there is a law where they arent able to inform the public of suspected cases. Other states are doing the same thing.
“We are unable to comment on potential coronavirus cases because of a state statute that prohibits us from doing so,” said Alberto Moscoso, communications director for the Florida Department of Health.
But with the Zika Virus they did it differently;
"Florida’s approach to releasing information on coronavirus differs from how health officials handled the 2016-17 Zika virus outbreak. With Zika, the Florida Department of Health reported positive and negative samples and pending results by county. It also put out daily updates that included maps of confirmed cases."
So basically my state's approach is to not tell anyone anything about suspected cases... isnt that just special! I could have 100 cases under investigation down the street and not even freakin know it! Meanwhile I go around as if there isn't anything to worry about.. yet.
