#7 What apparently isn't taking place, or is totally shrouded from the media:

DHS and CDC mobilize top team of epidemiologists, microbiologist, and virologists to study origins of Corona virus.

But why bother when you already know ?

#11 Dow drops more than 700 800 900 points and is on track for its single biggest one-day loss since August, as fears mount the coronavirus outbreak in China will become a worldwide pandemic

#14 About the Dow dropping, Market Watch has a round-up of company comments on the impact of thr coronavirus, including this:

• Procter & Gamble Co. PG, -2.04% expects the outbreak to materially impact earnings for the January to March quarter in China and for the overall company, given that China is the consumer goods giant’s second-largest market. The company has 387 suppliers in China that ship to it globally more than 9,000 materials, impacting about 17,600 different finished products.

The question is whether P&G and other manufacturers have pre-approved back-up suppliers in case of emergency, a prudent preparation, given that smaller but disruptive emergencies happen all the time — it was only a few years ago that P&G’s IAMS pet food line had to switch to a new supplier for one of their key ingredients when contaminated dog food started making pets sick.
