Oh this is going to be fine.

It isn't like its a virus with a long latency and potentially fatal symptoms.

It isn't like it hasn't sprung up in one of the most densely populated countries in the world at a time when almost everyone is on holiday traveling to their hometowns to visit family.

It isn't as though. Ah its fine. Don't worry

That's actually false. We don't know where it came from, but it came from animals and most likely snakes. Though this might change, the genetics doesn't lie.

SARS came from bats it seems, who then infected the cibet cat who infected humans. That's the leading theory, and probably where this myth came from.

Anyways, this is why you don't let a bunch of species meet for the very first time, like in the exotic animal market of Wuhan. Once it jumps once it got the mutation to jump more.

That was the lesson of SARS and the Chinese didn't learn a thing.

Other than that all you can do is to hope for the best.

This isn't a bat related virus, it came originally from snakes IIRC, and who cares when the bats are decently cooked?

But they have to stop with those fucking open food market where meat, veggies and FUCKING LIVESTOCK is being sold at the same overcrowded place.

Modern outbreaks aren't dangerous if you practice basic hygiene and stay physically healthy like the other guy said. Not only that, there are active outbreaks and festering endemic diseases out there way bigger than SARS 2020 will ever be, and you don't hear about them because they aren't in countries that America has an interest in maligning. I won't tell you to wake up, but I really think you should be more critical with what you read and try to put it in context, and not just react.

Its known in both bats and snakes, nobody knows the original carrier that made the jump, it very well could have been bats but the bat memes are cause of some weibo hoax showing a bowl of bat soup and claiming the restaurant that serves it was the source

The actual source was an open air market and if it was because of bat or snake or whatever else meat it was because the people butchering those animals inhaled aerosol blood sprays

You cant get pneumonia from eating anything, its a respiratory virus it doesnt go through your stomach

The bat soup memes have done a very good job of exposing blatant racism though

You similarly should not trust Taiwanese of telling you truth more than PRC sources. Koreans, Japanese, and Taiwanese all will spread bullshit about China. Also, HK protestors. Biases and untruthfulness does from one side does not excuse other to find facts. But, yes China probably already has tens of thousands infected right now. PRC would never lockdown entire cities and harm their economy if it was not serious.

Chinese just take to such extreme level of eating anything that moves it even make Western corpse eaters uncomfortable. If it make you feel any better, you similarly disgust me for eating your bacon and burger. Want not being offended? Have butthurt? Go tell Chinese to stop eating bats and cats and dogs.

Malaysians aren't too keen on foods that aren't halal, you have to either be aware there is some cultural bias going on there or one of those people that picks and chooses what sources are valid when they agree with the narrative they present.

Personally I agree with them but I'm aware it's my own personal preference. Western factory farmed meat processing has brought us things like mad cow disease, so maybe the answer is a happy medium between only eating hooved herbivores and fish that have been killed by an old Somali man and eating any and everything with any kind of protien content.

I sometimes go to butcher shops in America and there is "exotic" meats for purchase, things like gator and opossum are starting to be seen as down home, wholesome, hillbilly chic that the carnivore diet crowd in "real America" seems to be readily embarrassing. Also, the Trump administration has loosened sanitation regulations on US pork processing twice in the last year.

Plus the damage to the land and atmosphere being done by US meat consumption and the rest of the world trying to have the same diet will probably create more problems for human survival than a bunch of weird hill people accidentally getting the plague from eating a prairie dog.

Was it dog or bat that caused this outbreak?

One of the purposes of dog until very recently has been food like all other domesticated animals. It's not ideal and dogs have evolved to counter this by having expressive faces humans find cute, that's why they have bigger eyes and more facial muscles than wild counter parts. In some ways dogs have mastered people, they have traveled wherever we have including space and all they have to do is make noise when someone gets close to our houses.

Do you think this is the only place in the world they eat bats or wild animals for that matter? For the most part they are trying their hardest to produce as much beef and pork per capita as the US which should be just devastating to the global ecology. There's another thread on here about Brazil being more open to foreign investments now, just in time for cattle to be grown on the charred remnants of the Amazon.

Using current events, especially disease outbreaks, to push a greater political agenda fueled by xenophobia is nothing new and it muddies the waters for when an actual scientific consensus on the causes of the disease comes to light. Already you've shifted the goalpost from a wild animal not traditionally used for food to one of the oldest domesticated species on the planet, I feel like you are trying to move everyone along to a conclusion you've already made rather than separate the pepper from the fly shit as they say.

China can build a hospital in ten days to respond to an outbreak. There are outbreaks worse than this all the time. If you don't have a functional health surveillance program (like the US doesn't) you're dead anyway from one of the hundreds of other bugs floating around in your environment.

As of 23:59 Jan 29, there are officially:

7711 confirmed cases in China across 31 provinces
:lime5794 suspected cases in 30 provinces. 81947/88693 are under medical observation
170 deaths and 1370 are severe cases. 162/170 deaths occurred in Hubei province (where Wuhan is). The rest are within various provinces in China

17 deaths range from 48-89 years old. 14/17 deaths are of the elderly above 65 years old. Most have pre-existing conditions that seem to predispose to a more severe disease presentation. People who are already sick prior to infection may be more at risk due to decreased immunity. Some of these people had hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. Death was typically the result of severe respiratory failure but includes others like multi-organ failure. Info on some of the remaining deaths is currently unknown

Healthy people have died
124 people recovered



Of the first 425 patients: 240 (56%) were male. No cases for children under age 15. 84 cases for ages 15-44. 179 cases between ages 45-64. 162 cases for age 65 and over. Incubation period for the first 425 patients was 5.2 days. Nearly half of cases occurred people over age 60. It's possible that children are infected but show milder symptoms. In the coming weeks, once developed, a seroprevalence study (where we test your blood serum) will give us a much better idea.

Is the "lethality" rate the same as the transmission rate? The common cold transfers pretty fast and isn't that lethal. Is it 4 times more people that are infected total or 4 times more that are infected die? I don't have time to read that horribly formatted pdf and follow along with math because I'm stoned and that's honestly a waste of weed. I have a feeling you read it and don't understand it and if a smart guy like you can't get it what chance does a simpleton like I have? It seems to me like 4 is an average family size and if one person in a household gets it everyone will which makes sense.

I'm not going to pretend i read it in its entirety nor fully understood it all. However others are saying it says that and from what I've read, it does indeed say that. For perspective, the average flu is said to spread with a infection rate if 1.5 people per person who has the flu. Ncov is said to infect 4 or more people per person who has it.

Nha man. The chinese government didnt lock down entire cities and compromise a lot of social stability as well as economic growth..... to protect people over something as harmless as the flu. The flu doesnt kill 300 people for every 12000 people it infects. This is like a full blown nightmare, dont shoot the messenger.

There is a virus. It is a very good virus. We live in a biological warfare age.

Maybe somebody made the virus. There would be several ways to find that out. Maybe there was disease research center in wuhan that experiments on diseases.

I think the problem I have with this story is assuming that the chinese are inherently incompetent, untrustworthy and prone to disease due to poor hygiene and dietary practices.

Hygiene in rural china sucks, in cities it is pretty bad. Spitting, not washing hands, basic misunderstandings on the causes of disease. Lack of public education. Those are things that china can and should be criticized for.

Eating dogs not so much, or bats or whatever. Fuck it, you're just a snob who thinks your fancy kosher law, or halal or whatever is the only way to eat.

Treating animals poorly and then eating them, without using much antibiotic, also a thing, internationally, disgusting and a cause of unnecessary suffering and disease.

So china just accidentally their own population? Nah, probably not. Just because you have peasants in your country doesn't mean the peasants are running the country.

Because China is not unique in the factors mentioned, and in fact when it comes to the ability to respond to a health crisis, China is way better equipped than most. Looking at it from the other side, the only reason you'd mention the hygiene of rural people in this context (which is disgusting no matter where you're from) is to specifically malign Chinese people, just piggybacking on nonsense virus hysteria. It means nothing other than to say "eew Chinese people are sooo gross". That's why it's racist.

Nah. SARS was born from the same shit. Wet markeds where they put a bunch of exotic animals together with their exotic viruses for eating in horrible sanitary conditions. Perfect for non-human viruses to mingle and make the jump.

SARS was the wake-up call, and the Chinese kept sleeping. Now we got what we all feared what that virus could be. Sometimes humans just have to learn it the hard way.

So what do you think, will people in places with much less pervasive air pollution fall victim to this pneumonia-causing disease just as easily?

And will those measures imposed by the Chinese government on their no-gunz population like welding shut people's homes, building concentration camps etc. also fly in the US, or will the government be too scared of having their agents get shot by the armed citizenry?

Some say that the Coronavirus originated from wild animals others that it was laboratory made.
I don't really know the answer to that, but it sure picked a perfect spot.
Apart from its high population density, low hygiene standards and multitude of wet markets
Wuhan also contains the only official biosafety level 4 laboratory in China located near the wet market where the virus is thought to have originated.
Make of that what you will.

A handful of people tried to get the warning out in December, but they got stifled quickly.
The government knew about it as early as 3rd January, but they only quarantined the area on the 23rd.
I feel it's pretty telling of the situation or at least what the Chinese government thinks of the situation when they quarantined millions of people.
It took them a while to issue the quarantine, therefore the highly infectious virus
with an incubation phase of 14 days during which it can still spread, has almost a month of head start.

After the quarantine was declared the hospitals tried to deal with the situation as best as they could, but it doesn't take a genius to realize that they were understaffed, unprepared,
short on supplies and lacking proper quarters to handle this. Medical workers slave away all day, with little time to eat, shit or rest. Many of them seem to end up getting infected, quarantined or dead.
Due to the difficulty of securing transportation and a lack of manpower and supplies procuring proper medical treatment is almost impossible, not only for the infected but for most people.
So in many cases they will simply opt to stay at home, unwilling or unable to risk the trip for an almost nonexistent chance of medical assistance.

The PR branch of the government has been hard at work trying to control the flow of information right from the start. The entire thing has been downplayed, likely to prevent panic and save face.
You don't have to look too hard to see they did a decent job at that, at least initially.
However the logistics and procedures that have been put in place in case of such an event seem poorly thought out, partially improvised even.
One would think they'd have a better, more efficient response after what happened with SARS.
In the absence of guidance from the government the local communities had to organize on their own and coordinate the people to keep Wuhan at least somewhat functional.
All these things considered it's no surprise that the general public is left feeling confused, helpless and desperate as a result.
Individuals like Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin have tried taking the matters into their own hands in an attempt to paint a more clear picture of what's going on.
It's them and people like them that we have to thank for what scraps of information we have.

A couple of hospitals were built on a very short notice and a lot of public infrastructure was repurposed into makeshift shelters for the sick.
They are disinfecting the city daily, from the street to the apartment complexes and trying to exercise proper hygiene protocols.
Between these hospitals looking more like prisons and the shelters like quarantines zones for the infected to die in,
government officials welding people shut in their own homes or forcing them into quarantine vehicles in broad daylight
and the bodies left to rot on the streets because there is no one to dispose of them,
I can't help but get the feeling that the Chinese government is more focused on managing the disease rather than treating it.
In that regard the response is eerily similar to the rest of the world - quarantine the sick, lay low and hope this blows over.

That's just Wuhan, soon we are going to see similar developments in other parts of China, perhaps even other countries.
Come and see.

Had to collect my thoughts somewhere after all the information I've absorbed about this in the past few days and this seemed as good a place as any.
tl;dr: I hope it's not as bad as I think it is, but I fear it might be even worse.

No word from NK yet. If it was an official they probably quarantined him and his mother, as well as any that might be connected like anyone the dude texted. But honestly considering their behavior when it comes to hunger they may just let it happen to once more do a purge.
