I sure hope this thread dies out. I don't think it will. Been following this as close as I can via NYT and SCMP. What we see is not what we are getting. For one nice little window into the debacle in Wuhan, see the Mail. I am just going to post a bunch of URLs instead of trying to name them. Just scroll through. Look at that super spreader article. Then look at 5 million fleeing Wuhan before the lockdown. This was nasty enough to kill the doctor who warned everyone. Who was chastised. some more juicy stuff. Like watching folks ripped from their apartments.

This is absolutely fucking serious. Read what the epidemiologists are saying. So far, the CCP has done what it could, once it woke up. The question is, was it in time? Seems like we are doing well, but this disease has very high transmission coefficient, which combined with lethality, makes is major concern for me. I hope I am a pollyanna. A few links:

The Mail is far more on top of this than anyone. This will bear some close attention for hopefully only another couple of months.
