#2 - Wuhan novel coronavirus: information for the public. Diagnosis and analysis

Based on current evidence, Wuhan novel coronavirus presents with flu-like symptoms including a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing. The current evidence is that most cases appear to be mild. Those who have died in Wuhan appear to have had pre-existing health conditions.

The UK is now one of the first countries outside China to have a prototype specific laboratory test for this new disease. Healthcare professionals who are contacted by a patient with symptoms following travel to Wuhan have been advised to submit samples to PHE for testing. Individuals should be treated in isolation

#3 I joked to my buddy Patrick (both his parents were born in Hong Kong; he was born in MA and we grew up in Manchester NH) about going to the local Asian food market - 'looks like I'm not going there for a few months.' He just nodded.

#4 All this action with the virus is moving very fast. My PhD wife said it will be like 1917-18. I am doubtful but who knows?

#5  it will be like 1917-18.

Washing your hands with soap every two hours and avoiding touching your T-zone (eyes, nose, mouth) will do much to keep you from getting infected — with anything.

I keep waiting for germophobic fashionistas to bring back gloves as a necessary fashion accessory...

#6 A nice thought, TW.
Long gloves like Holly Golightly's or Jackie Kennedy's would be exquisite.

#8 ^ I've heard of beer googles but welder's goggles must be interesting.

#10 So, how does a rich engineer
Cut loose in his bar without fear?
An impregnable suit!
"He'll do anything cute."
"Looky here!" "Hold my beer." A John Deere.
