    The world is going to end for a lot of people unless they find a cure soon or quarantine is effective.

    So far Wuhan coronavirus is killing 1 out of 42 people who catch it, and that's just the data we have.

    Since there are roughly 7.7B humans on Earth, that means a global spread could kill as many as about 184 million people, even assuming they have access to good healthcare. It killed the very doctor that discovered the outbreak.

        Is now a good time to remind everyone that Wuhan has a population of over 11,000,0000 people, but only 40,000 cases world wide almost all of them in the same province as Wuhan itself.
        Just in case you actually thought it was spreading fast.

          It is spreading very fast, far, and wide, despite containment efforts it has already outpaced SARS.

          The Diamond Princess off the coast of full Japan is full of infected passengers.

          Here's a map for you. Keep in mind this is only what we know about. There are plenty of sick people who we don't know about, or where they are.

              Incorrect, we have had close to 0 virus spread outside of China, we have had people with the virus travel from China.
              The fact that you are not grasping that difference is why you are full of fear and hyperbole.

                Close to 0? Tell that to the 20 Americans infected and trapped on the Diamond Princess.

                A single British businessman brought Wuhan to France, Switzerland, and England. By air.

                Lol, "hyperbole". Nope, just take another look at that map and tell me what's missing from the visualization, if you can even spot it.

                  And you are bad at fearmongering, despite your obvious love for it.

                  The next month will tell whether the CDC’s assessment of the coronavirus’ virulence merits the panicked discussion being pedaled by some.

                    Fearmonger? Moi?

                    We could ask Chen Qiushi if he thinks I'm doing that, but he's been kidnapped relocated and his family doesn't know where he is.

                    We can't ask Dr. Li Wenliang, the first guy to sound the alarm. He's dead from coronavirus.

                    The position of the 公安部 (which harrassed Li Wenliang before he was hospitalized, is black bagging people, and is hunting them down in rural country zones with drones) is basically your own? Weird, how that whole "nothing to see here" sleight of hand works wonders.

                                An experimental Gilead Sciences antiviral drug prevented disease and reduced the severity of symptoms in monkeys infected with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), an infection closely related to the fast-spreading coronavirus that originated in China, a study published on Thursday found.
