Unexplained Coronavirus Cases in Three States Raise Specter of Spread
Sixty-five cases of the virus have been reported in the United States, but until this week, all of the cases could be explained by overseas travel or contact with someone who had been ill. The three new cases on Friday, and a case earlier in the week, in California, were the first in the United States where the cause was mysterious and unknown — a sign, experts warned, that the virus, which has killed more than 2,800 people worldwide and sickened tens of thousands of others, might now be spreading in this country.

“If we were worried yesterday, we are even more worried today,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “Now we have to ask: How widely, really widely, is this virus out there?”

As word emerged of the unexplained cases, local officials scrambled to trace everyone who had come in contact with those who were ill. California health officials said they were increasing testing. And in Washington State, officials suggested that people needed to prepare for the possibility of schools closing and businesses keeping workers home.

“We’re going to be increasingly recommending that people try and avoid crowds and close contact with other people,” Dr. Jeff Duchin, health officer for Public Health Seattle & King County, said. “We may get to a point where we want to recommend canceling large public gatherings — social events, sporting events, entertainment — until we get over a hump of what might be a large outbreak.”

Even the parent company of Corona, the beer brand, has seen its shares drop more than the broader market, which some have attributed to its having the same name as the virus.

Such fears do not bode well for a modern economy and stock market that depend on optimism and a willingness to spend. As recently as nine days ago, that optimism helped drive up the stock market to a new high.

 

I know you are rooting for disaster, death and for everyone to panic and be angry because it will help your agenda, but really the best thing to do is to wash your hands, stay to yourself as much as possible, stock up on food and supplies and remain calm.   I don't have to change anything because I already live that way, but it would probably be good for more people to scale back their lives and start being more independent.   That is what we should take from crises like these.

 

Edit: And remember should there be social disorder or even collapse, the urban centers will go first.  Perhaps this will give those that think preppers wear tin foil hats pause for reflection.{#Whistle}

That's a good point. One  thing the governments should do is explain to people that it is proper to act quickly and severely then to back off as more information comes in. I'm afraid people will think "they got it wrong" and then blame the authorities and be less likely to listen next time.

 

Another good point.

This is the kind of social upheaval that will rip the fabric of normal family dysfunction.

 
Sounds like your mum has her priorities right.

I can understand that Mormon thing about being prepared for the apocalypse although I once had a neighbour who burned their house down because of all the fuel stashed in the garage. I don't feel right without an extra month of meds on hand.

Yup, I'm shallow that way.
 

I placed an order for equipment I might need for work just in case the supply chain gets messed up. Been following posts elsewhere from an expat in China. Interesting that they are starting to see more shops open and more people on the street.

Once the vaccine is developed, it will take at least 90 days to complete the regulatory process and potentially more to enter the marketplace.

U.S. Health Workers Responding to Coronavirus Lacked Training and Protective Gear

Anyone who thought "electing Trump won't kill anyone" are very close to being wrong.  The administration overrode the CDC's explicit instructions not to bring Americans home from Japan...and we now have the virus mysteriously appearing in someone without known contact linkage within 10 miles of the AFBase where the cruise line folks are in quarantine.

Worldwide flu typically kills 290,000 to 600,000 annually. COVID-19 is just getting warmed up but some back-of-the-envelope math I did last night (assuming some wildly unpredictable numbers but taking the most conservative of each) says it is likely to double that.
 
Swine lasted over a year and infected up to 20% of the population, but the mortality rate was much lower....Only about 1/2 million, or less than. 10%

Good job Pencey!
Mike Pence was criticized for his handling of Indiana’s HIV outbreak. He will lead the U.S. coronavirus response.
