  1. As per the article:

    “At a Chinese-run hospital in Zambia, some employees watched as people who recently returned from China showed up with coughs but were not placed in isolation. A doctor tending to those patients has stopped coming to work, and health workers have been ordered not to speak publicly about the new virus that has killed hundreds around the world.”

    That part worries me more ..

  2. This is the biggest worry about the coronavirus. “IF” it starts spreading in some underdeveloped, poor, crowded countries then its game over. If that happens we may not be able to stop it any more which would also mean that it would probably spread to other countries as well.

  3. >Visiting Zambian health officials concluded the patients did not merit special treatment and did not take samples to test for the virus. After the people recovered, they were sent home with antibiotics, employees said.

    Woohoo, go antibiotic resistance!
