Predictions Indicate Wuhan Coronavirus Will Turn Into Major Pandemic

Great Plague or the Plague, or less commonly the Black Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in Eurasia. Due to major epidemics like that it was natural to to and protect your own citizens, and control migration.

The ‘Year of the Rat’ is starting off  with little celebration as the entire country of China is overwhelmed with the outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

Symptoms include a fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Experts are now warning of the possibility of an epidemic.  One doctor on Twitter discussed the danger of the Wuhan coronavirus:

Reports coming out of Wuhan are scary.  According to the South  China Morning Post:

Human-to-human transmission is occurring and a preliminary R0 estimate of 1.4-2.5 was presented. Amplification has occurred in one health care facility. Of confirmed cases, 25% are reported to be severe. The source is still unknown (most likely an animal reservoir) and the extent of human-to-human transmission is still not clear.

Needless to say, while 2.5 is quite high, and in line with that of the Spanish flu epidemic  which infected about half a billion people back in 1918, killing as many as 100 million.

Wuhan the epicenter of the deadly  disease is the capital city of Hubei Province in the center of China.  The city-wide area has a population of between and 8 and 13 million people depending on the source.  Because it is the capital, citizens go to Wuhan to obtain marriage certificates and other documents from the government.

The Chinese government will not allow people out of Wuhan and now other cities. Last night we heard that the entire province of Hubei was shut down.  This is very discouraging and frightening to individuals with family members in the province.

“I don’t want do this job any more. Just fire me! Kick me out, send me back home,” a doctor at Wuhan No. 5 Hospital yelled into the phone, frustration and exhaustion exploding out of him. “Don’t I want to go home to celebrate the new year?” he screamed in his Wuhan accent, presumably at his boss, that he’d done four back-to-back shifts.

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., urged the Trump administration to declare a public health emergency and sent a letter to the CDC requesting information about the agency’s plan to combat the virus.

Protect yourself from coronavirus?

Health officials said the virus, which  spreads through tiny droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. Officials urged people to take the usual cold and flu season precaution: frequent hand washing, covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing and staying home when you don’t feel well.

“These illnesses can pop up anywhere,” said Trish Perl, chief of infectious diseases at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. “This is a dynamic situation that can dramatically change from day to day.”
