My direct contacts in China say that they are pretty much in a shut-down mode. Chinese actions show us that they are taking this virus extremely seriously. Trump too listening to his own top health officials has take unusually severe actions to limit the spread of the virus. Just how severe it might become in the US is still anyones guess.

China has now changed their definition of "confirmed cases" of the virus and have reported only 349 new cases overnight. "Clinically confirmed" cases will no longer count toward the official total of patients. Meaning people showing symptoms of the virus but test negative for the virus will no longer be counted

death toll up to 2,126 up 114 overnight

2 former Diamond Princess cruise passengers have now died from the coronavirus. Both were in their 80's

South Korea and China presidents agree to a coronavirus information sharing pact after South Korea confirmed 22 new cases in the country bringing their total confirmed cases to 104

Laboratory testing is difficult and slow. Laboratories even if available are likely to be overwhelmed with large numbers of tests. This testing is unlike other laboratory tests we have come to expect here...almost available immediately in hospitals. Its a slow process...

Still makes no sense as there is no vaccine to be anti about.

It makes sense. Anti-vaxxers claim that vaccines do not help and it is our natural immunity to diseases like measles and better overall health that has been the cause of the decrease in these diseases. So, here is a new disease and they can get started building up their natural immunity.

As long as they take their essential oils they'll be fine.

now this crap is slowly making its way over here.
@steross you made that vaccine yet? I don't expect to die, but I don't really want to be sick or to get others sick. I would also accept a vaccine from @RxCowboy assuming it doesn't make me racist.
