From what I have read, Wuhan did not have enough staff, hospital space or equipment to care for the large population of those exposed.  Many could not get into a hospital and were turned away.  I have heard that one hospital that went up quickly was made out of storage containers.  Were these holding pens, or care facilities?  It would seem that when people needed healthy food the most, not much would be available.  This could increase the death toll, due to poor immune systems.  Being locked inside would lead to more pneumonia cases....inactivity, poor air quality.  Wuhan has so many factors that we would not see here, unless the numbers became over whelming.  Not sure about the numbers of Chinese.  It would stand to reason that many would be from the area of Wuhan, or would have visited there, possible relatives  visiting over Chinese New Year.

News articles all over the place this morning about TWO HUNDRED Georgia residents back from China who are self monitoring for the next few weeks.   Very little other info except for officials saying they didn't come from Wuhan and one guy who mentioned he & Mom are staying at Mom's in North Georgia.

Taking bets on how soon we see it here.

Check out the date on this story. What a coincidence.

Maybe preparing for a population reduction.  I have a hard time sometimes believing in coincidences.

I hope I don't run into any of them at the Dalton Hamfest.
My guess 20 days.

Apparently they have changed the reporting method - from lab test to clinical diagnosis, which WOULD jump the cases reported AND prove right those who have been saying that they have been under-reporting all along.

The number of cases and deaths jumped dramatically this morning....Also said it is likely to increase here.  It's like we are being fed teaspoons full of information at a time.  The government has never trusted us with too much information....

Only the truly clueless have believed any of the information that's been showing up in the news. Especially when they started parroting, "The flu kills more people." They won't report anything the Chinese government doesn't want them to. We already know they can't be trusted!

Oh YES,  It does not look good.  See the wonderful test kits the CDC is using.

As of this morning, John Hopkins CSSE is reporting that 1,526 individuals have died from the Wuhan coronavirus.  However, many believe that these numbers may be way understated.
One report claims that based on the number of individuals cremated every day in Wuhan, there is around 8,000 deaths from the coronavirus:

Ready or not here it comes.  We have been seeing the signs, ie, govt. buying up all available medical supplies, calling around getting the Medical reserves up to speed.  When the military activates the Pandemic plan, then they will activate medical reserves.  When ? Don't know.  Watch, prepare & take your action stations soon.

R.J., would you please name the commercial supplier?  I see that 3M is working overtime, but they are holding some back for other countries (the make them here, as you probably know).
