So much for the theory you need human fluid to be communicable.
I'd be nervous having that crap sprayed into my home/windows..
China's never given a damn about its poor people, why so much effort now to help/save them?
China knows what this is, its not just some natural virus that was born in a bat.
I am really starting to believe this is modified to target people of Asian ethnicity..
It could bring China to its knee's..
In the digestive system, besides esophagus upper and stratified epithelial cells, ACE2 was also found in the absorptive enterocytes from ileum and colon, the most vulnerable intestinal epithelial cells. In microbe infections, the intestinal epithelial cells function as a barrier and help to coordinate immune responses. The absorptive enterocytes can be infected by coronavirus, rotavirus and noroviruses, resulting in diarrhea by destructing absorptive enterocytes, malabsorption, unbalanced intestinal secretion and activated enteric nervous system[36-38]. Thus, we suppose that the enteric symptom of diarrhea might be associated with the invaded ACE2-expressing enterocytes. In addition, due to the high expression of cell receptor ACE2 in esophagus upper and stratified epithelial cells and absorptive enterocytes from ileum and colon, we suppose that digestive system can be invaded by 2019-nCov and serve as a route of infection.

One thing I've noticed while travelling in China previously, is that virtually everybody smokes. It reminded me of early 1970's in the Northeastern United States. Id' say at least 80% of adults there are cigarette smokers - maybe lower for those with money and could be higher for the poor.

It probably isnt spreading like wild fire because we are a little more sanitary over here.
Also I am starting not to believe that our (the US) authorities are being completely open about the cases over here.
