I’m fine everybody. I’m on day 10 of self quarantine. I didn’t go to Wuhan, but I was in China for most of January and got back on the 31st.
This is a lie.

Classic Chinese government manipulation. Check the IP and it will show as being from China.

@TyGuy was definitely taken by the coronavirus. There is more that they aren’t telling us.

Investigate 311.

He was sent back to the US to take us down from the inside.

I talked to my friend who is in Chengdu again last night. He said his company got instructions from the Chinese govt on how they could open. He said they were only allowed 1/3 of the office workers back in to the office, the rest were suppose to remain at home. He said only 11 of the normal 40 were at work. He has no clue when he will go back to the office especially since he is a foreigner.

He also told me that in some districts they are tightening down on the quarantine. He said his friend was given 7 tickets to go outside for the next 20 days so basically he can only go out to resupply once every 3 days.

From what I’ve read, the first American citizen death is of a 60-year-old woman at a hospital in Wuhan.
Combining these two parts it's clear that TyGuy really did succumb to coronavirus. If I ever expected a poster to actually be a 60 year old woman who drinks Coronas while in China it would have been them.

Over 1,000 dead and 42,000 confirmed cases at the time of this post. Another 180,000+ under watch. So far, the virus has a 20% mortality rate among cases in which there was a final outcome (patient recovered or died) and a 2% mortality rate overall when taking into account people that are still sick. Among cases in which the patients are still sick, approximately 19% of them are in serious or critical condition.

Health officials are investigating the possibility that it can be transmitted environmentally (i.e. through drinking water and whatnot) after an elderly woman with a leaky pipe in her apartment contracted the virus. She lived ten floors below another confirmed patient.

In fact, authorities haven't ruled out the possibility of the virus being airborne, either.

On average, an infected patient could infect 3-4 other people.

I played the game Plague on my iPhone. It killed the entire world in about 3 years. I’m worried now.

You're already infected and everyone that lives on your street is, too.

I hope you have a living will.

aren't there a high number of people who have the virus but don't get any symptoms? This makes it harder to contain, but also makes the mortality rate lower, right?

I updated the first post to show the WHO report's death total by day in calendar format so it's easier to see the week to week increase

At what point do they close the borders and ban all international travel?

I am unsure of that, although I do know that one of the challenges of containment is that the incubation period can last for up to eighteen days, during which time an asymptomatic carrier can still transmit the virus to others. That being said, the WHO has come out and said that asymptomatic transmission from person to person likely only makes up a small amount of confirmed cases at this point.

The rate of new infections appears to have leveled off.. about 2-3k new cases a day.. containment is working.. but for how long.. ? Some factories went back to work today.

Seems quite a ways to go until it hits plague like numbers.

During the Plague of Justinian, 10,000 people a day were dying in Constantinople.

I read something earlier that could be potentially alarming: The North Korean government is implementing anti-viral regulations. They have sealed their border with China. No one comes across.

If the virus gets a good stronghold there it could be disastrous considering how malnourished they are, and how primitive their healthcare system is.

Lots of people dying that normally wouldn't if they were in China.

I view the leveling off as a sign the isolation is working.. for a bit infections were growing exponentially..

The Norks implementing anti viral practices would play into the Un narrative of protecting it's citizens from the big bad world..

I think the bigger danger is Thailand, where there are already 20+ cases, and where sex tourism is a thing.. If the virus gets loose in India, well, that would be a bad day..

Up stream there was a 180k under observation claim.. I had not seen that number which would be even more disturbing..

The other thing is that until there is a vaccine, all we can really do is slow it down.. Ten cent delayed going back to work a week.. this can't be sustained long. China essentially has taken an extra two weeks of production hit from this. It has to be killing cash flows.

It is a wake up call.. what would we do as a society if similar hit here, naturally or unnaturally.. I expect that potential exists in South America...
