It looks to me like the corona virus has pretty much stopped spreading.
What I can't believe is how many people caught it on that boat quarantined in Japan. That was like a breeding ground for the virus. I'm not planning to go on a cruise ship any time in the near future.
I heard someone talking about that virus the other day. They were talking about how it is transmitted and what they have learned, blah blah blah. Anyway, she said that the one thing that is really unusual is how easily it is transmitted from person to person. Not through inhaling (masks don't work), but simply through contact (touching) or cross contact (touching something another person has touched). She basically said that its the most aggressive she has ever seen in terms of that method of contamination.

the news the last few days is going apeshit about the spread of Coronovirus. Like its getting out of China and going global, etc. If you look at this chart that we have all been following since it started, the new cases have dropped to only about 1,000 a day. Which is a HUGE drop in the curve.

From what I've read, the medical experts are saying that as Spring arrives with warm weather, it's supposed to drop drastically and dramatically. That seems counter to my thinking but I guess virus's like Yellow Fever and Malaria (not really virus) go dormant in the Winter and explode in warm weather only because the carrier's are mosquitoes.

Yeah, I was thinking that, too. Just wonder why some virus's are active in cold weather and some in warm weather. Wouldn't seem to matter since they all affect warm blooded creatures with self controlled internal temps. I believe I shall now go and "Google".

i think for these flu strains it has something to do with humidity. colder air is much drier and that's what they thrive in.

OK, that is correct. They had always thought it was things like people being stuck indoors together or less sunlight means less Vitamin D- less immune system, things like that. Colder air is much drier than warm. 2 things. When an infected person sneezes (for example), they eject the viruses. In warmer moist air they clump together and usually just fall to the ground. In drier air, they separate to individuals and can float in the air for hours or days. Second, in drier air, the outer "skin" of the viruses are hard which allows it penetrate the host more easily and fight off immune systems. In moist air, the outer "skin" liquifies (sp) making it much harder to do those 2 things.

After following this for a while and reading a lot of the news about it that sounds to be right. The problem is how extremely contagious this virus is.

With all the World wide concern and fear about this Chinese virus outbreak, can you imagine the reaction to the Great 1918-20 Influenza Pandemic (Spanish Flu). After 4 years of World War with 10's of millions dead, it struck. Estimated 500 million infected- almost 30% of the World population. Death toll estimates range from 50 million to possibly 100 million all within 24 months before it vanished forever. American death toll was almost 700,000. What made it especially scary was that instead of the usual pattern of most influenza's victims being children, elderly, people in poor health.etc- this one was deadly to the young, prime of life, perfectly healthy part of the population. They still don't know why.

I hear the Spanish are still pissed that the worst pandemic (by far) in World history has their name attached to it and they had nothing to do with it.

Wow, thanks. I really suck at predicting stock market reactions to global problems. Just when this problem seems to be slowing WAY down, the stock market decides to use it as an excuse to tank. Either that or the Ratio of Chinese sick and dying to Italians sick is not a 1:1 thing.

The strange thing I was reading.....and I admit I didn't go too far into it yet...…...is that some of these countries like Italy don't have a patient zero.....they cant pinpoint how the virus could possibly be there. If I was a conspiracy fan I would think this has been used as a weapon.

South Korea is getting hit hard.

And not one bit of information out of North Korea (no surprise). But, honestly, how is this affecting the people in N Korea?
