#1 Me thinks 16,000+ Which doesn't include Apple factory workers jumping to their deaths.

#2 The economy of China is grinding to a halt. These numbers are just the tip of an iceberg. High population areas will fall quickly. The sanctuary cities and homeless areas here are prime breading grounds. Their pathetic efforts so far have accomplished nothing. So media people claim when the weather turns warm the bug will die out. It has been said for many years the very cold stuns the outbreaks. We will see. I do suggest Trump offer assistance. Leadership is required. Act while others dither.

#4 China numbers probably low. More important to watch the outside China numbers. Specially places like japan and Singapore have 1st class medical institutions. Looking at those it seems the virus has been contained for now. Of course a breakout into someplace like Indonesia or Malaysia would change the whole situation but for now that probably hasn’t happened.

#6 True Frank but the worm might turn. Communism total control might falter. The devil is in the details. Emotion pushes for action. Logic lacks the power to take action. In any possible business, potential opportunity must be taken. I see Trump as the only leader to seize upon this and lead.

#7 Besoeker, who says it has to be a vaccination? You must be aging rapidly.

#8 ^ Antibody against the spike protein?

#9 Anecdotally, that Ebola drug apparently cures those with the coronavirus’s second-stage of deep lung pneumonia within hours. I yesterday that it’s in two human clinical tests in China even as we speak, so if it proves out there will be a useful treatment, even if a vaccine comes too late for the current epidemic.
