Updates On The Chinese Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

Possible Case of Chinese Coronavirus Reaches Mexican Border City, Says AMLO.

Mexico’s president said Wednesday that public health officials near the Texas border are closely monitoring a possible case of Coronavirus in Tamaulipas.


China virus death toll jumps to 17, officials say avoid epicentre city.

Beijing (AFP) – The death toll from a new SARS-like virus that has infected hundreds in China rose to 17 on Wednesday, as authorities urged people to steer clear of the city at the centre of the outbreak.

The coronavirus has caused alarm because of its similarity to SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), which killed nearly 650 people across mainland China and Hong Kong in 2002-2003.


Chinese city stops outbound flights, trains to fight virus

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese state media say the city of Wuhan is shutting down outbound flights and trains as the country battles the spread of a new virus that has sickened hundreds and killed 17.
The official Xinhua News Agency said Thursday that the city also asked people not to leave Wuhan without specific reasons.


The state-owned People’s Daily newspaper said in a tweet that no one would be allowed to leave the city starting at 10 a.m. and that train stations and the airport will shut down. It said that city buses, subways, ferries and long-distance shuttle buses would also be temporarily closed, citing Wuhan authorities.


In Geneva, the World Health Organization said it had put off deciding whether to declare the outbreak a global health emergency and asked its expert committee on the issue to continue their meeting for a second day Thursday. The organization defines a global emergency as an “extraordinary event” that constitutes a risk to other countries and requires a coordinated international response.


And in the US:

Tom Cotton Urges Trump Administration to Consider Banning Travel from China over Coronavirus.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is urging President Donald Trump’s administration to consider implementing a ban on travelers from China to the United States over the Chinese Communist Party’s mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak that has left more than a dozen people dead.

In a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release, Cotton raises serious public health concerns over the coronavirus and in particular the disease making its way to America’s shores through weak screening that could cause an outbreak here.

  1. The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 that killed tens of millions was actually from China.

    Let’s give credit where credit is due and call this pandemic what it really is- The Chinese Flu.

    What’s that? Too harsh? Oh okay – THE CHINK FLU

  2. One of the other articles had a doctor quoted as saying how we should get our flu shots.
    Even though he said it would do nothing against coronaviruses.

    But get your useless flu shot anyway. LOL!

  3. With at least 500 infected and only 17 fatalities it doesn’t seem like much of a threat.

    at least if you can trust the statistics released by China.

  4. Say what you will about the commies, at least they have enough common sense and practicality to do quarantines properly. Remember that Cuba quarantined AIDS patients? – prostitution is a major part of their draw for tourism by leftist sleazebags.

    Communism is actually a less dishonest, wasteful and stupid system than socialism (which always turns into fascism as the govt buys support). The commies use more guns to enforce support, socialists buy it with handouts to the worst people and import hostile foreigners.

    At least with communism, you know who to blame, they don’t have local capitalists to kick around anymore.
