Latest counts:
362 dead
+17k cases in China
25 countries with confirmed cases
11 confirmed in US

Yet for the common Flu, there are millions of cases, thousands of hospitalizations and hundreds of deaths each year in the US alone.

China is saying the US is over reacting and causing panic.

Yet, they are the ones standing up 1,000 bed hospitals in 10 days

I'm guessing part of the concern is that being a new virus, people haven't been exposed and don't have antibodies to defend against it. So it could spread wider a quicker than the more common strains. But is it necessarily "deadlier"?

Minor issue...

Name: Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or Wuhan coronavirus... I only bring that up because SARS and MERS are also a coronaviruses.

This is a matter of the evil fake news MSM being lazy.

My apologies for this rant.

I believe some of the argument is the common flus kill yearly and we have vaccines for those that are widely distributed. This new virus has nothing to stop it from spreading fast. Speed sucks, because time matters in medical treatment. The earlier you catch sickness the better the chance at successfully treating it.

Some other arguments really boil down to xenophobia.

The whistle blower Chinese doctor who was punished for trying to warn people about the virus before it became recognized has died of the coronavirus.

Yes.

An interesting fact.

Sort of like >>> coronavirus are typically zoonosis.

And, oddly enough, this particular coronavirus seems to have originated from horseshoe bats.

Others have come from fruit bats.

Quite frankly very ancient stuff... these viruses...

We humans are introducing ourselves to "stuff" we have rarely encountered in our existence.

Oddly...

Here's another story about Dr. Li Wenliang . It is critical of censorship in China. This is an entry on biological warfare . This final one is an article about the effect of the virus in Hong Kong.

So, are you saying that the Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or Wuhan coronavirus...is a biological weapon?

Made by the Chinese?

I'm not saying either is a weaponized virus. I just posted a wiki article about biological weapons.

👍🏻

Just asking.

Oh and the two names I used are the same virus; formal name and informal name. It’s the one that people keep calling “the coronavirus”.

Your seem to be trying to make a connection between protests in Hong Kong and the COVID-19 virus... but after reading your articles I’m not sure what you think the link actually is.

Any chance you could explain the point you are trying to make?

Here's an article about Xia Baolong . He's the guy the Chinese government is putting in charge of Hong Kong.
They are all articles about China. I didn't write any of them, I simply saw them and posted them here to share. No one in here is really saying there's a link except maybe you.
