But how do they differentiate people with common cold/flu symptoms, to people with the Coronavirus?

I mean imagine the millions of people over there panicking and going to the hospitals when they just have a normal cold/flu 😐

How could they? thats a big worry..

Some people with the flu to go to hospitals and interact with people who have the disease


So many people go to hospitals, some with the disease and some without... but because the number of patients is huge..they're being turned away - which means the infected return to their area's and keep infecting.

If they're so overwhelmed they cant test everyone obviously, so they may ask a specific set of questions.
-Have you been to xyz in the last 14 days
-Has anyone you know been there in the last 14 days
-Could you have interacted with someone who may have been there in the last 14 days

Initially they denied it was human to human - you had to go to Wuhan to get it. So, they ran with that assumption. Then suddenly people started showing up who've never been anywhere near Wuhan.. and had the disease!

Is that at a hospital? There are flashing lights reflecting in the window.

I initially assumed it was a train station, because its got queue lines inside the door.. but thats a total guess. I see the flashing lights you're talking about

there's another clip just coming out apparently showing apc's in the streets, but there's no indication when or where

oh yes, and the APC's have the flashing lights, it's starting to look more like a zombie plague.

Looks like its true

"Central Theater Command assists Wuhan lockdown"
CCP Central Military Commission has ordered Central Command to assist the Wuhan lockdown in response to social instability due to panic emotions.[1/3]

Motorized equipment will be put to use. Dongfeng EQ2050 armoured vehicle, armoured personnel carriers and light tanks were all put to use to defend the roadblocks.

To those who say the chinese government and the world are over doing it with how they are handling, let me say this.
Wuhan Coronavirus
25 people dead
800 infected.
That's an infected to dead ratio of 3.125%.
1.4 Billion people in China.
If all were infected that could be 43,750,000 people dead.
Worldwide pop is like 7.5 billion.
If all were infected that could be 234,375,000‬ people dead.

The flu virus record a standardised death rate of 3.9 per 100,000 persons.

In the US the flu virus in year 2017-2018 infected about 45 million people.
21 million medical visits. 810,000 hospitalizations.
61,000 of them died.

Thats an infection to death ratio of 0.01355% for the flu virus.
That's an infected to dead ratio of 3.125% for the Wuhan Coronavirus.

If the same amount of people were to get the Wuhan Coronavirus compared to the Flu virus,
Instead of there being only 61,000 dead, there would be 1,406,250‬ dead out of 45 million infected.

Get it.

We were lucky with the SARS virus. It has an infected to dead ratio of about 10%. Luckily only 8 thousand people caught it..

Maybe some good news, here's an interview just released of a patient who has recovered and is heading home.

and the doctor who explained his admission and recovery..

Do we feel relieved?

I'm not quite sure what I found here, but it looks like someone has just published the full genome - maybe this is of interest to someone?

and they're matching it against a Bat Sars Genome from 2018.

what stood out is it was submitted by

Submitted (05-JAN-2018) Institute of Military Medicine Nanjing

Now that they've got the genome I guess they're on their way to a vaccine?

Yes the genome will be used to help develop a vaccine but it is going to take a few months, and even longer to get the ok for mass population use. The genome is primarily used as a reference for detecting the virus RNA that is converted into DNA using reverse transcription techniques. The genome has since been used to create an assay for rapid test results. The assay was created on the 14th of Janurary.

The actual genome sequence is further down the page than what you posted, it has the A, T, G, C code.

Here is a link to the WHO guide for Lab testing of 2019-nCoV

Read that WHO estimates the R0 (R Naught) is 1.5 to 2.5 which mean each infected person will spread it to 1.5 to 2.5 people.

WHO states a R0 number greater then 1 means the virus will spread. Sers had a R0 of 2-5.

The swine flu data showed that once infected a person could be contagious a few days before symptoms appear and upon onset of symptoms days 1 thru 7 most contagious with day 3 having the highest level of being contagious.

SO far the Mortality rate is relatively low compared to SERS so that a good thing.

I wish I was good at math as it would be interested to use the above to see given the above what we will be looking at in 30 days?!

I find it really bizarre that when a virus threatens our way of life , we allow people to travel freely

like that one chinese woman who circumvented the border checks to get into france , she could kill millions

, why do we allow public flights at all ?

CHina should restrict their outbound and inbound flights to logistics / trade and emergency aid, medical , military only
all public flights globally are stopped

its only a deadly viral outbreak

and people still want to go on holiday

for some its about getting out...

I don't think its possible to quarantine a country like china.. but you'd atleast try, right?..

Concerns rise as several who died from Wuhan coronavirus did not have fever

SEVERAL people who died from a new virus in China didn’t display symptoms of fever, potentially complicating global efforts to check for infected travellers by temperature screening at airports and other travel hubs.

The youngest victim was a 36-year-old male who was admitted to hospital on Jan 9 suffering from fever and fatigue. He died on Thursday.

Elsewhere in China, Guangdong province in the south on Friday reported 53 confirmed coronavirus cases, including at least one 10-year-old child

airports are screening people for fever... if some victims didnt show any fever that complicates it much more fever? Now I am going down the rabit hole of this 'virus' has been manipulated...

Video from inside Chinese hospital. I don't think the sheets over peoples faces is a good thing. It says that the footage has been removed from China's social media

So as we all know its called CV because it looks like a CROWN/HALO or solar (life giving) corona under a electron microscope.

Chinas aggressive prosecution of Christians especially recently, organ harvesting, social credit regime and its consequences are an abomination and clearly shows the chinese government has no heart for tolerance. Could the corona label be a double edged sword referring to coronary (heart) also.

This CV is the initiation of gods will and judgment of this wicked chinese government and agenda that people are adhering to through fear of the government.(not siding with christ even if it meant laying down their lifes).

Do i really need to spell it out any further.

Yikes Twitter is showing China has issued a lockdown of all info in Wuhan and they are building a huge makeshift treatment center as hospitals are full. With 1000 cases fear this shows things are worse then being reported.

Hoping for the Best ! Latest update upped the death count ...

China shuts transport, temples, part of Great Wall as virus toll hits 26

China ramped up measures to contain a virus that has killed 26 people and infected more than 800, suspending public transport in 10 cities, shutting temples over the Lunar New Year and even closing the Forbidden City and part of the Great Wall.......

13 Cities on Lock Down

China broadened its lockdown to include at least 13 cities Friday as it strives to contain a deadly virus outbreak the World Health Organization has termed a domestic health emergency.

Stay Well and level headed !

Scientists are also doubting the virus came from snakes:

So they're still not sure where exactly the virus came from.

Well, now sadly it looks like we may be having nature working on balance. Hopefully this just turns into hype, but uh locking down metropolises, seems to late, hell its already across the pacific. Looks bad, hopefully warmer humid climate coming will help kill it..
