It would be interesting to see the "incubation" time lines of these "viruses"?
The incubation period for the new MERS coronavirus may be longer than has been believed up until now.
French doctors report that a man who caught the virus from an infected patient he shared a hospital room may have gone 12 days before developing symptoms.
Haha! I'm not trying to spread fear porn! Lol!
I'm just trying to keep those who are interested, informed.

I am tired of running it down to people that there isn't any "outbreak" of this "plague" yet.
There have been a few deaths in a few clusters of a new variant of an old virus thats been around forever.
The clusters are "over" (not spreading),
BTW, I used to be a self appointed 'Its already posted' Mod and I don't do that anymore. It rains on newer members parade. Let the mods do their job.
The lowest is, "I already posted it here". JMO

You mean "Swine Flu and Pandemics".
Diseases and Pandemics: This forum is dedicated to the discussion of growing global crisis represented by Avian Flu, Swine Flu, pandemics, and medical industry news, information, government cover-ups or conspiracy speculation connected to wide-spread diseases.
If we are to garner interest we have to make it sound "NEW" and "Unusual" or "threatening the whole world".

Saudi Arabia has reported that three more people have died from a new respiratory virus related to Sars, bringing the total number of deaths globally to 30.
The Ministry of Health said the three deceased, ranging in age from 24 to 60, had chronic diseases, including kidney failure. It says they were hospitalized a month ago.
The World Health Organization said the new virus, a respiratory infection, was first seen in the Middle East and has affected more than 49 people worldwide.
Given that around 16,000 overseas Filipino workers arrived from the Middle East in the first quarter of 2013, the Department of Health is on “heightened alert” against cases of the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).
A report aired on GMA 7's “24 Oras” said that even though the DOH has yet to issue an advisory on the MERS-CoV and no case has yet been reported in the Philippines, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's thermal scanner now operates a full 24 hours. Doctors and nurses are also on hand to assist passengers.
Italy reported its first case of the SARS-like coronavirus on Friday, a 45-year-old man who had been travelling in Jordan, the health ministry said.
The patient was in good condition and was being monitored in isolation, the ministry said in a statement. He was admitted to a hospital in Tuscany with a high fever, a cough and breathing difficulties.
