2008 Report: Electric Outages Due to Coal Supply Chain Problems in Pandemic
"Current levels of pandemic planning are likely insufficient to sustain the coal supply chain during a pandemic; the link between the public health response and reliable access to coal-fueled electricity is neither understood nor addressed in current pandemic plans in the United States." They add that the public health sector would have great difficulty functioning without a stable supply of electricity during a pandemic.
"Without coal, more than half of the nation’s lights go out and computers go off. Without coal miners, there is no coal," said Daniel J. Kane, the UMWA's international secretary-treasurer. "Leaving America’s coal miners out of contingency planning for a potential nationwide influenza pandemic makes no sense and puts America at risk.
Apple saw as much as $27 billion in market value erased on Monday following reports that its Chinese production line is limping to full production after a weeks-long shutdown.
Foxconn recently got permission to reopen its Zhengzhou plant, Reuters reported, but only 10% of its employees have returned to work, and other factories remain closed.

More and more countries have evacuated their citizens from Wuhan, and the standard routine is to place the evacuees under quarantine for 14 days and to monitor their health.
If no symptoms show up within this period of time, they would be identified as uninfected. However, the incubation period of the novel coronavirus can last for more than 14 days, according to the latest study released by Zhong Nanshan, a respiratory expert and head of China’s health commission team investigating the coronavirus outbreak. The study, released on Feb. 9, states that the longest incubation period observed from 1,099 confirmed patients is 24 days.
"Outside of mainland China there have been 461 confirmed cases of #coronavirus. Of these cases only 46 have been resolved. 44 cases recovered, and 2 died. Using these numbers we would arrived at a case fatality rate of: (2 * 46 )/100 = 4.34%

Not really. Again, a cruise ship is not the regular world. It's an artificial, packed in environment. How many of the world's places are that closely packed?
Most US cities are far more sprawled except for the urban cores.
