So yea, Coronavirus is shaping up to either be a global pandemic like the Spanish Flu or SARS 2.0.
Nearly 60 Million people in China are currently under a mandatory quarantine as China locks down all access to the epicenter of the outbreak. Nations are starting to either close their borders with China (Mongolia) or they are starting to advise against traveling to China (US). The death-toll in China currently stands at 80 people, with thousands infected.
The CDC has issued a statement warning of all travel to China and is recommending all Americans simply avoid China. There are 5 known cases of the virus in the US and over 100 people being monitored for symptoms. All of them in people who recently traveled to China.
Worldwide the cases of the virus continues to increase rapidly, either due to better knowledge of the virus or from people becoming infected.
In the US the Stock Market tanked today on fears that the virus is spreading and shaping up to be so problematic that it actually impacts the global economy.
You can look at some more info on the virus on the CDCs website here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
Part of what makes this virus so tricky to identify and contain is it can take up to 14 days to actually show symptoms. During those days though you are actually contagious. So you could be walking around spreading the virus with no knowledge that you even have it.
Right now this is looking more like another SARS than a full blown pandemic. That hasnt stopped the player base of Plague Inc. from growing to some of the highest levels ever recorded though.
I dont know what everyone else is thinking, but Im keeping an eye on this while continuing life as normal.
