Spread through the eyes ... as in you touch something contaminated and rub your eyes?
Chinese expert who came down with Wuhan coronavirus after saying it was controllable thinks he was infected through his eyes
Peking University respiratory specialist Wang Guangfa contracted illness after visiting the city and believes lack of eye protection may have been the cause
He defends his earlier comments that disease can be kept under control, but admits stronger measures may be needed
Wang said he had been trying to work out how he became infected after visiting fever clinics and temporary isolation wards in Wuhan.
“At that time we were highly vigilant and wore N95 masks,” he said. “But then I suddenly realised that we didn’t wear protective glasses.”
He said that after he returned to Beijing, his left eye developed conjunctivitis and two to three hours later he started to come down with a fever
if a controlled society like China cant stop it we will be in the same boat in a few weeks.

Are masks really going to help...unless you are the one who is sick and wearing it...in which case stay the hell at home.

Curious because I don't have a reasonable answer for this, but at what moment would you hunker down and not leave your home should it be clear a very real risk of exposure exists?
What tells would you look for?
