3. Which is ironic, because he's the germaphobe who wanted to cut off countries where ebola was

spreading.

4. The WHO have pushed back the announcement on their decision over whether the virus constitutes a

public health emergency, weíre now expecting it around 7.30pm.

7. -As if it's not going to get far worse between now and then.

I've heard some minimizing from them because they don't mention the millions who left Wuhan before the quarantine. They also neglect to factor in the days of incubation before people start showing symptoms.

I'd call it an emergency, but nobody asked me. Thanks for the update on the hour.

8. I think they are seeing a pattern that the virus is really down the scale as far as how infectious

it is, so far it seems to be less infectious than SARs or the the seasonal flu, is far less infectious that the measles.

5. His wife came back on Jan. 13 and started experiencing symptoms and was hospitalized last week

Now thatís her husband finally exhibiting symptoms some 15 days later past her return

Itís good that the woman has had "very limited movement outside her home" but that is a long time that virus stayed low and undetected after transmission no symptoms until now or at least thatís how Iím reading it .
That is not good
Isnít flu like 3-4 days so at least you know who is infected around you fairly soon ?
The wife is doing better in fair condition but still in hospital local reporting mentioned

6. I agree & the WHO is having a hard time with that fact, there are so many unknowns about

this virus.

10. Very interesting. I had read that the incubation period was 3 days.

The longer the incubation period, the greater the potential for widespread infection.

9. In a similar story

here, they say

"The concern is that it could spread to countries with weaker health systems."

Unfortunately, they mean the US, among other countries that have excuses for having pathetically weak systems.
