    This is much ado about nothing.
    Well, from a medical standpoint we all have had the flu, everyone has some antibodies in their system.

    This may be very different, and most of what we know is coming out of Red China, they aren't very forthcoming or truthful in the information they put out.

    This has me worried.

    Back about 6 weeks ago, I had a discussion with a veterinarian, who mentioned coronavirus being a problem. She said that if a pet got it in their digestive track, it's not a big issue. But if they get in their respiratory system, there's no effective treatment and the fatality rate is very high.

    That was before we'd seen it transfer to humans.

    Now, we have a global situation on our hands and my own opinion is that the numbers being reported out of China are very inaccurate on the low side.

    I went to see my retinal specialist today. She is a M.D., PhD. Born in China. Bazillion IQ. She came in to the exam room with a mask on. Wouldn't take it off. Said she has been "through some airports". Nice knowing y'all.

    And selling dog meat in the Chinese wet markets probably isn't helping.

    I've read that so far they think 14 days in quarantine is adequate. Until it isn't anyway.

    I guess there's worse ways to end...stroke, pancreatic cancer, burned, just to name a few. I watched my older brother whither from 190lbs to 90lbs before cancer took him down. I think four days of severe flu would be a blessing in disguise.

    How will we classify this outbreak; The Walking Dead, The Zombie Apocolypse, The Fear of The Walking Dead, Zombieland, or something else entirely?

    Getting killed by a Mexican Beer virus... how much would you have to consume? Just asking for a friend.

    A disabled boy has died after being left to fend for himself when his father was quarantined over the deadly new coronavirus in China's Hubei province. Yan Cheng, who was confined to a wheelchair because of cerebral palsy, was abandoned at home when his father was isolated because of a fever.

    The 17-year-old, who could not speak, walk or eat by himself, and whose mother died several years earlier, had no one to feed him or help him with daily life.

    His father, Yan Xiaowen, was taken into quarantine on January 22, and diagnosed with the potentially deadly virus five days later.

    He posted a desperate plea for help on social media, calling for someone to go and look after his son.

    But the post, titled "An appeal for help from a father diagnosed with novel coronavirus," came too late.

    The teenager died on January 29, according to a statement by the Hongan county government.

    "Yan Xiaowen was unable to take care of Yan Cheng's daily life (because of being in isolation)... so he entrusted his relatives, village cadres and village doctors to take care of Yan Cheng," the county government said.

    The boy's death has cost senior local figures their jobs.

    The local Communist Party secretary and mayor were fired because they had "failed to fulfil their responsibilities,” officials said.

    The son's cause of death had yet to be confirmed, they said.

    News of the tragedy sparked an outpouring of rage and grief on social media, where authorities in Hubei have already been criticized for withholding information about the infection


    Seeing this news breaks my heart.
    I just hope that it will end soon, numbers of cases and death rises each day. Let us pray for the world.
