  1. China’s going nuts. Millions already on lock down. Literally tearing up roads to stop people from travelling to/from infected areas. I predict Shanghai and Beijing will be on lockdown soon. Stock market is going to lose its shit over that.

  2. This appears to be the worst part.

    Hosts can infect thousands before they become symptomatic?

  3. That is the way viruses work.

  4. It’s very contagious. Even if it has a small death rate, it means that it can overcrowd the hospitals and less people would be able to receive adequate medical attention. I’m not talking about possible drugs shortages, medical personnel and masks

  5. It is good to read the history of quarantines. We seem to have forgotten.
