There is a Corona Virus spreading out of China and a few hundred folks are infected and several have now died. China has locked down two cities to try to prevent spread. There is NO TREATMENT for Corona Virus. So the problem for people who get it, is that there is very little that can be done for them. We have just one case in the states. So it's not a big deal here. It's a problem in China though. Don't get too freaked out by this stuff though as it's probably going to stay mostly in China. I'm starting to see crazy videos on youtube where people are really blowing it out of all proportion. It's not as deadly as SARS so it's sorta like a bad flu virus that reguiar meds won't work on.

So
Wash your hands a lotStay away from people who seem sickstay home if you get sick.

Same things you always do in Flu Season smile.gif

It's over here now as well. It's just one or two folks so far over here. I was a bit shocked to hear China had cancelled Chinese New Year festivities in Beijing. Each year, Chinese New Year is the largest mass migration of humanity on the planet earth. All those people moving about for one reason. To celebrate new year with their families. It's much like Christmas is for western folks. Imagine the president coming on TV and saying he was going to cancel Christmas, and then asked everyone to just stay home.

I am glad to see the Chinese govt is taking this very seriously and hopefully it will all be sorted very soon. smile.gif
So far, like 20 Million people have been asked to simply not leave home. 3 Cities so far in china. All public transport has been closed. This sort of thing is a first in history. Trying to isolate tens of millions of people is going to be a challenge.

That's great news! It looks like they are doing their best to keep it contained. So we should all be just fine smile.gif It's the folks near the epicenter that have it bad. store shelves are cleared out already in many places, all transport in and out has been stopped. The worst part, people are just starting to drop on the street. Evidently, at some point the virus makes it really hard to breath and sick folks just pass out where they happen to be. They are building a hospital just for folks with corona virus. The other health facilities are already maxed out. They plan to build a new hospital in 6 days! From ground breaking to first patient in 6 days. I don't know how that's possible.



13 cities on lockdown in china with a population roughly equal to Canada.

Guys check the food at your house to see where it comes from, if from an asian country (like rice etc.) stock some just incase.

My rice comes from California wink.gif

Fun fact: Calrose rice (grown in CA) exports rice to both Japan and China.
Go 49ers!

*Chiefs fan today though.

We eat a lot of Hinode Calrose rice up here too, good stuff. Rooting for KC today. I have always loved Andy Reid ever since he coached my team the Philadelphia Eagles so I would like to see him get a Super Bowl ring, but I also love Patrick Mahomes and watching him play.
Go Chiefs!

It turned out to be a huge hit to the Chinese economy and spreading to the area around it.

Countries started avoiding ships/goods from there either cause of the crew or goods where virus can live (like food). If not directly the food, ingredients of some food may be dependent from China to be prepared. Likely the foods on shelves today are from before the virus started spreading, so stocking isn't a bad idea if possible.

EGAD!! Are you serious? That close? That's crazy. What are the odds of one of these random people landing within spitting distance of where you happen to be?
The rate of spread of this thing is just insane. Every single day the infected count seems to double. There are now 12,000 cases confirmed of this thing. That's just the confirmed. Unconfirmed we have no idea. We have military bases ready to take infected people coming in. Stock market took a 600 point down hit the other day. So now it's impacting our economy as well.



the worse part is carriers can be "asymptomatic" meaning no symptoms yet able to spread the virus. Here is a doctor talking about. The expansion of the virus is growing exponentially so they really need to get a handle on this.
Here is a real time tracker of infected and dead.

For now I'm not too worried about the spread, number of patients increase but its mostly around China. Quarantines other countries are doing seems to be mostly effective, its expected to have incidents but the quarantine protocol seems to be effective (for now).

But most of us have no idea how much we're connected to China by the stuff we use, either food or even guitar parts. So on the long run I do expect some shortages of supply. Food is the most critical, I don't know if medicine is related (China bought all medical masks Turkey has, yesterday my mom barley found one box for herself and dad).

We are a much more connected world than we were 20 years ago during the SARS outbreak. That's what has everyone worried. Also people are saying that China is under reporting the entire thing. That in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of people infected and that they are under reporting deaths by saying cause of death was "pneumonia" instead of saying cause of death was Corona virus. Here is the hospital they built in under two weeks. Sadly, they don't have enough supplies.

You mentioned they bought every medical mask in Turkey. I've heard they have bought every medical mask from every country they can and that it's still not enough as the masks are meant to be changed every four hours so that's 2 masks a day (eight hour work shift) or 6 masks a day, for everyone waiting in line at a hospital. It's growing exponentially which is starting to be concerning. There are only a few cases here in the States, how about the rest of you guys? Any new cases in other countries?

In this report just like mertay says, FOOD is the culprit. This lady bought a Chicken from a wet market in Wuhan. Now she has Corona Virus and the medical people who treated her have it now as well. It's in the food, it's being spread to medical people who are not wearing masks in some areas of China. ugghl









for everyone needing a mask in a country of well over a billion people.

Oil and copper dropped in value rapidly, its usually the first sign the world economy is slowing. This was what I was expecting and it will continue depending on the state of virus spread.

I'll start worrying when it starts to hit middle-east and Africa, most of the countries there can't manage something like this. Then by illegal passing's of boarders it will be dangerous for everyone. The incubation period can extend to 14 days so its possible an immigrant can step in somewhere like Europe seemingly healthy.

More people have now died of CORONA in about a month than died of SARS in 3 years. So how many will corona kill in 3 years? Well, it's about a thousand a month. So not looking good. The only good news so far is that numbers outside China are very very very small. So for the rest of the world, this is not a big threat. Inside China, it's got people a bit freaked out.



None of the people in quarantine facilities are permitted to leave. Hopefully this will help. They have dug up the roads leading out of wuhan.
