    Corona Virus.....Coming to a Town Near You!

    Looks like a China is full bore emergency mode. Shut down cities and travel. Physically blocking roads with piles of dirt and debris to prevent movement. Cases of the shit are popping up all across US. South Carolina and Tulsa this morning, along with others. They are taking this shit serious.

    Incubation period is two weeks so more will follow. Looks like flu symptoms to me, so elderly, young and immune compromised folks at most risk. Mortality rate is about 3%

    Was headed to the Gun show this morning but fukk it.....Aint going around crowds.


    Folks here are stocking up on Gloves, masks, bleach, hand sanitizer, flu meds etc.

    The flu is in full swing too. Sent one home yesterday from work. Texted me this morning he has 102 fever. Hope he didn't get anyone else infected. Next week is my last week to work, sure don't want to spend it in bed with the flu.

    We have a young female engineer at work that went to Hong Kong for a 2 week vacation, she's a week into it now. We tried to talk her out of going because of the protests they were having. She wasn't hearing it. Bet she's wishing she had listened now.

    This current flu has a fatality rate of 4%. The deaths have been the elderly and infirm prior to getting it.

    It's kind of too early to tell. We will know a lot more about transmission rate and mortality rate after the next wave of symptomatic people are tallied in 10-14 days. What is scary about this one is the 2 week incubation period. If it spreads far and wide 4% is no joke.
    EDIT: That being said our public health procedures are much better than China. A good rule of thumb is don't touch your face or eat unless you have just washed your hands, which is harder than it sounds.

    Saw three old Asians with masks on at my sons basketball game this morning. Unclear if that was to protect them from getting sick, or us from catching it from them LOL

    Did you hear that the virus could survive on products imported from China?

    The viruses will never be as scary here, because we have better hygiene and public health practices. No worries on goods shipped from China, however; the virus can live for approximately 24hrs on surfaces like doorknobs, etc. Point being; I'm not as concerned for us, but this could be biblical for China. They'll make more people tho...they seem to be good at that.

    The one we should be pissed about already happened. Enterovirus D68 AKA Acute Flaccid Myelitis is a polio like virus that killed and paralyzed a bunch of American kids and is directly traceable to Latin America/illegal immigration.

    Humidify the buildings and it will help with contamination.

    People think you get sick more in the winter because itís cold and your body wears down. The truth is the lower humidity allows germs and virus to stick better and transfer better.

    I sat in a seminar with a DR that did the studies. She was a oncologist first and got her masters in mechanical engineering. She was getting pissed that her patients kept catching other stuff in hospitals.
