Hong Kong Activates "Serious Response" As Chinese Mystery Illness Prompts Hospital Lockdown

https://www.zerohedge.com/health/hong-k ... l-lockdown

Authorities in Hong Kong have activated a recently created "serious response" threat level Saturday as a mysterious SARS-like respiratory illness begins to spread throughout central China, according to AP.

While just 44 people have been admitted to the hospital with the unidentified virus - eleven of them in serious condition, authorities in Wuhan, China have put 121 people under observation who have been in close contact with the infected. Five cases, meanwhile, have been reported in Shanghai - around 570 miles north of Hong Kong.

People like to talk about wars and such. This is the type of stuff I think can actually cause a world wide problem.

Hmmm anyone know if the latest flu and pneumonia vaccines provide any protection?

HK and Singapore are key air terminals with literally 10s of thousands of people flying worldwide. The fact it showed up in Singapore means Dubai, London, Beijing, LAX & NYC are likely to see it also.

Mystery illness - maybe scary

Well known killer / slate wiper - scary as hell.

Yes, but you can always contract the disease anyway.

A mysterious virus is making China (and the rest of Asia) nervous. It's not SARS, so what is it?

Potential case in Australia

https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/21/first-su ... 93753/?ito


6 dead so far, so if the number of cases and number dead is accurate (doubtful), that's about a 2% mortality rate
