^ I'm guessing (and hope) this episode is shorter. And that they merge with the regular known flu viruses that're available all year round.
... the testings on the cruise ship came back negative according to the latest.Other news....
Russia closed it's border with China.
Hong Kong closed the bridge to China.
A cruise ship with 6,000 passengers is quarantined off the coast of Italy.
The virus is infecting family members and health care workers. It appears to be spreading faster than previously thought.
Isolation will slow down the virus but won't stop it entirely. There are too many holes in the system as the world needs to continue to operate even if the virus is spreading.
The good news is that several research labs said they have found a vaccine. Unfortunately it will take months of human testing before it can be released.
Provide a credible link to back up that statement Eder. I consider it to be yet another example of totally unsubstantiated rumour otherwise. It is this kind of statement found online that causes the confusion and fear in people. You are stating a CONSPIRACY theory, back it up or back off.Well it looks like the seafood market was not ground zero for the virus...some speculation that China was experimenting with the virus & it got out of the lab.
Did you even bother to view the video of the US senator I posted? Obviously you didn't.Provide a credible link to back up that statement Eder. I consider it to be yet another example of totally unsubstantiated rumour otherwise. It is this kind of statement found online that causes the confusion and fear in people.

Except if you want updates in if your kids school is closed due to the strike you need to check social media.The government says don't watch or listen to social media. They will tell us all we need to know.
Great move, ian. Certainly lucky!We did not make a decision about where to spend the winter until mid Jan for family reasons. Our choices came down to Thailand where we have been going for the past six years or Mexico.
It was a coin toss but a single 5 hour flight instead of 23 hour and two connections was a factor. We are In our Merida hotel enjoying a cold beer thinking about how thankful we are that we did not select two months in Asia!
I'm more concerned with the flu, in Canada half the ICU cases die, and there are over 8000 deaths in the US.The first case in London, Ontario.
Apparently, she is a student at Western University and returned back to Canada from China. She showed no symptoms on the flight but started feeling ill and went to the hospital.
The first test came back negative (local test) and the second test (national lab) came back positive. She was on self quarantine.
Now the question is that despite all the assurances from health officials, people on the flight may have been exposed and certainly people in the hospital were.
Patients in the emergency room, nurses, doctors, clerks, diagnostic techs, housekeeping. She also lives with a boyfriend but they say he wore a mask.
This is exactly how the virus could spread. People still go to the infected country and bring it back with them.
We should shut down the border to Chinese arrivals until the epidemic is over.
