Novel Coronavirus – China

Italy's cases have reached 100 now. 117 cases so far. So Europe has a first epicenter now in Northern Italy. ☹️  Not good.

Meanwhile in South Korea it reached 600 cases!!!

It surely is worth repeating that every single case we see has been shedding virus for a number of days before the onset of symptoms.

If we stick at '10 days' for this 'incubation' and accept that around 80% of those infected never present you begin to see the scale of the developing crisis in places like Italy/S.Korea/Singapore? It will be a number of days before the 20% of those infected (that need care?) by those now in care present themselves?

Again we really need to know the CFR for if we are to see 60% to 70% of the globe infected then the numbers of the 20% that need treatment, and the CFR (if between 2% and 10%?), will be enormous (cumulatively) and overwhelming over 'peak infection' when we see a glut of cases arising over a 4 to 6 week period?

My 'naysayers' will know that for 2 decades I have cautioned about the scale of impacts a global contagion must drive. I honestly believe that this is 'the one' when I look at its speed of development and how quickly the globe is becoming infected?

I wonder how Iran now feel about their open invitation to China to have folk spend 'Chinese New Year' there?

I seem to recall the regime extending the invitation post the Iranian attacks on the U.S. bases in Jan ( after the U.S. offed their general in the drone attack in Iraq?) and China offered their solidarity to the regime?

It remains puzzling why China has been hit so hard. Because a big pool of cases built up before they did anything much?  Or what?

Don’t want to be lulled into a false sense of security  

 

Well let's see how Italy do with controlling spread?

They've been pretty hot on clamping down after patient zero (there?) was hospitalised?

Problem being , as I keep on posting, the horse has already bolted by the time 'patient zero' hauls their butts to the hospital...

So sad to see this G.F.

So many of the health care workers are suffering from the disease they are tasked to deal with?

Will we see the same in our care workers once covid-19 is fully expressed here in the UK?

I suppose we see how Italy copes as there are real concerns that staff levels will already be suffering loses before we enter 'peak infection' allowing the easier collapse of care over that period?

Should this occur then ailments that hospitals normally cope with will instead lead to fatalities? (hospitalised flu case/cardiac/stroke cases/RTA's etc etc?)

This is becoming like one of my nightmares - loads of articles from vets now mentioning companion animals. I would simply shut myself away and wait it out if there was a real and present threat here to Mylo and I. We've enough of a garden to get exercise in. I would never knowingly let anything hurt my beloved, innocent lad and that includes his Mummy Bear getting too sick to look after him.

Viruses need to attach to cells to infect them, and they do this by binding to specific receptors on the cell. If a virus can’t attach, it can’t infect.

I think we do new research first and W.H.O. second Dreckly?

Like with AGW it's 'New Research' first and IPCC (if you like the expurgated version of things that's at least over 5 years old at time of going to press?) second?
