BBC reporting the good news is that it appears so far the mortality rate per number of cases is far less than SARS, letís hope it stays that way and doesnít mutate further. With international travel thereís bound to be cases develop most countries, you canít stop everything everywhere people will always find a way round it and letís face it the travel restrictions took a while to be implemented, a bit like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

I think this could turn into something huge. What I think should happened though is to stop people entering and leaving China to stop it spreading world wide. Apparently there are cases already in the US, Thailand, Japan and South Korea.
I also think the media should find out/release info on those that have died. They could all be 90 years olds with health concerns, or people with just health concerns, maybe they are all healthy 20 years old, but it would give people an indication of it was a huge risk to them.

And by coincidence (?) yesterday I received a text from my GP surgery late yesterday pm advising I should contact them for my flu vaccination. I had it elsewhere last September but obviously my surgery werenít aware, Iíve also had the pneumonia vaccine. My understanding is whilst nothing stops the Coronavirus itself, the Coronavirus develops into flu like symptoms and potentially pneumonia, the pneumonia is what is causing fatalities.

Some media have now done this, majority appear to be elderly with a percentage having other health conditions, they developed pneumonia.

Funnily enough I was watching something yesterday and someone said they were given a whole white frog to eat at a wedding.

Think we need to get this in perspective, the population of China is 1.4 billion of those 800 have this virus and 25 have died. Whilst obviously distressing for those affected is there really the need to panic the whole world just yet based on such a small percentage.

I'm worried about it, I'm coming back to the uk through gatwick for a visit in march.
I've had the virus since november, and with my asthma as well I still cant shift the coughing and gunk.

I donít think itís panic but a case of putting controls and precautions in place atm along with monitoring procedures
