PostPosted: Mon Jan 20, '20, 9:08 pm 
A new and deadly (3 lives have been lost so far) virus has been found in China and is being called coronavirus.

Steps are being taken to hopefully try to keep this from entering the USA by screenings at airports, etc..

Still, I would not be surprised if, and when, it shows up here in the USA and other places. There should possibly be a quarantine or something where people cannot travel until this is eradicated or something, in my opinion.

Already some cases have been reported in other countries. And now there is also a case reported in the USA in Seattle, Washington. I knew it would not take long to get here as many overseas flights that are arriving in the USA. So far only one case has been reported in Washington, however, the person may have come into contact with others at some point and time so who knows what may happen. Hopefully they will be the only one and more precautions will be took to stop this from happening again

Update 1/23/20: Another case of the coronavirus has been reported in Texas in the USA. Also several other people are being looked over who may have come into contact with the person in Washington and anyone who may have come into contact possibly with the person in Texas as well.

I also read an interesting article that this may be coming from bats or snakes... :yikes: or something similar.

Another confirmed case of this virus in Illinois in the USA. Many others are being tested for the virus in the US and so far some have come back negative except for the one in Seattle and the one in Illinois.

In China several more people have died from this virus. The death tole there now is around 40 or so people who have died from this disease. Hundreds more are sick.

3 cases have been confirmed in France.

Another case of this virus reported in the USA. I think now there a 9 confirmed cases here. Still many more in China and many deaths so far.

Praying they get a cure for this or atleast something to help people.

Glad they have it under control there in France myay56.

We have another new case here in the USA. So far I think it is mostly under control here in the USA too, although some people have been quarantined in various places when they come back from China. I think they will stay quarantined for about two weeks until it is seen whether or not they will show symptoms of the disease.
