    The first case appears in Washington State. Trump will be golfing again soon, no doubt.

    CDC expected to announce first US case of Wuhan coronavirus - CNN

    Should more cases appear, let's see if the right absolutely loses their tiny minds again like they did over Ebola or if they don't care about diseases anymore.

    "
    A leading virologist who helped tackle the SARS epidemic in Asia in 2003 has warned that a new strain of deadly coronavirus from China could lead to an outbreak at least 10 times worse than the health crisis 17 years ago.

    Dr Guan Yi, director of the State Key Laboratory of Emerging Infectious Diseases at the University of Hong Kong, confessed to Chinese media that the situation in Wuhan - where the virus originated - was already 'uncontrollable'.

    He also claimed that the Chinese authorities missed the 'golden period' to control the virus and prevent it from spreading.

    'I have experienced so much and never felt scared. Most [viruses] are controllable, but this time I am scared,' Dr Guan told the press, predicting the worst is yet to come."

    Well that can't be good.

    Hong Kong isn't exactly friendly with China these days I expect that Dr. Yi would just as soon create a panic if it's politically feasible.

    My question is why does Bill Gates have a patent on this virus?

    if you believe that there are only a few hundred cases and 25 deaths in China caused by this virus you may be very very wrong ! the Chinese have locked down 6 cities [nearly 20 million people] ! thats pretty drastic for just a few hundred cases ! should we ban travel to and from China until we find out whats really going on !

    We probably SHOULD ban all travel to and from China until this virus is under control.
