Important Update on the Novel Coronavirus
« on: February 02, 2020, 12:36:59 AM »
The man from Snohomish County, WA, is recovering. He is a man in his 30's who, prior to contracting the virus, was in reasonably good health. His case has been instrumental in studying the progression of symptoms this virus causes. I advise you all to read this so that you know what to expect in case you do contract the novel coronavirus yourself.

From the sound of it, the virus seems fairly similar to an untreated flu. The thing that killed the couple hundred people in China was probably the pneumonia stage, if I had to guess, which makes sense since most of those people were in the >60 crowd that tends to be most vulnerable to it.

Definitely something to take seriously, but not something that warrants getting overly anxious about. Take normal precautions like you would during flu season, and visit your doctor (or at least call them) if you develop a severe cough. Also if you do start coughing, wear a face mask in public so you don't spread anything.
Black lives matter, feminism is good, religion is bullshit, and if you disagree with me on any of these points you are a fucking moron.

First death from new plague ... outside of China.  A Chinese man, from Wuhan, in the Philippines.
