Yep, according to the study I linked to above:One doesn't generally worry about that, because viruses tend to live on the order of hours-to-days outside a host, not weeks.

It's still safe to go to P.F. Chang's
BINGO and there is a shot for that. People avoid the shot and it will give around 50% protection. Every year Pneumonia and Flu fill more but we ignore that.
A friend posted that on Facebook. My reply was that everyone in our household already got a shot for that. But, when I daily work with the elderly and regularly visit nursing homes, our daughter works in several healthcare facilities, my wife is immune suppressed, and we're both over 50, a new strain of "flu" that is particularly lethal to the elderly, people over 50, children, and anyone who is immune suppressed, certainly gets my attention.BINGO and there is a shot for that.

Exactly. In the pathologist video I posted, he found that there are over 20k hospital beds in Wuhan alone and yet there are images everywhere of people sitting in hallways, some with dead bodies. The huge problem with this virus is that it is contageous during it's apparently long gestation period. BTW, the CDC/NIH briefing I'm listening to indicates they are really taking this seriously. Screening at US airports has been increased to 20 airports, but with the long asymptomatic gestation period...*If* the Chinese numbers are accurate. But, as the video I posted earlier pointed out, China's numbers are suspect. If there are only 2700 cases in Wuhan, a city the size of London with 14,000 hospital beds, then why are hospitals overwhelmed and running out of supplies, and why does China have a crash construction program to build two new hospitals with 3000 more beds? Something doesn't add up.
As usual, because of M-O-N-E-Y. If this doesn't turn out to be a pandemic, it's already predicted to have significant economic impacts, especially in China.Then again, even with the numbers currently available, why are other nations, including ours, even allowing flights from hot zones to land, or at least to de-plane passengers? Especially true if, as reported, carriers can be asymtomatic *and* contagious for up to two weeks.
CDC/NIH briefing said that thanks to genetic technology much more advanced than during SARS and MERS, they've already developed a rapid test kit which they're using, but holding for general release until it proves as accurate as they want (I don't know what the Chinese are using), and Phase 1 vaccine testing will begin soon, lasting three months after which Phase 2 will last more months before release for human use.Therefore, personal preventive behavior (wash your freakin' hands, and don't try to shake mine), treatment and vaccine development should be the points of focus.
Same here, with those issues by far the most likely in China.To be honest, I'm personally more worried about the impacts of mass human panic and the resultant behaviors than I am the actual pathogen.
British Airways suspends all flights from Chinese mainland after flights repatriating British citizens. Repatriated citizens were immediately put in quarantine.
