As everyone may be aware, there is a recent outbreak of 2019 nCOV: Wuhan chinese coronavirus. Officials report that it may be similar to the MERS(Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome) or SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). There are now confirmed cases in other asian countries as well as in the United States.
The two things I am concerned about is how contagious and how lethal the virus infection is.
I have cancelled my flight to Shanghai, China in March
Use this map to track the 2019 nCoV. It tells you how far the coronavirus infection has spread, including death tolls.

Please share this video to let others know. All it takes is just a click
It has been approximately a month since the first case was reported in Wuhan city in China. Now it has spread to other asian countries and also the United States.
There is not yet official recommendation about restricting travel and trade – so we need to be on high alert to make sure our decisions are necessary (that the risks and benefits are well thought out)

As a junior doctor, I am somewhat limited in what I can say in a public forum so I rely heavily on official sources for proper information. If I make up false information then I would be doing a disservice to the public.
Sometimes the information presented by official organisations can be difficult to follow or understand – what I can offer is translating these difficult and heavy topics into digestible bits so that you can make use of them.
