I'm not buying the snake source idea. A cold blooded critter is not nearly as likely to be host to a virus that will transmit to humans as a warm blooded host.

The death rate so far is about 2- 2.5%, which is greater than the 1918 Spanish flu.

I agree with White17. Snakes are an unlikely source for a virus that affects humans.

When my grandfather was young, families would send a member to live with a neighbor. In case the family got sick they would have a survivor one way or the other. People called it the sickness, but I assume it was a version of the flu. When I did some reading on it, it turns out there were a number of large flu pandemics not just one or two. When my grandfather was sent to live with the neighbors I don't know.

The percentage of people infected, who died of the Spanish Flu of 1918 was 10% to 20%. 3% to 6% of the entire world's population died from the Spanish Flu.

Medicine is of course much better now. China has fairly decent medical care compared to areas like Africa and South America, so the death rate will go up when coronavirus gets there and as it overwhelms the better countries medical resources.

My dad was born in 1918...grandma said he was the best baby..slept for the first two years, but then all they had to combat the flu was whiskey and everyone was drinking to try to stay ahead of it and she was breast feeding dad....drunk by proxy.

Maybe the original carrier was a rodent. Many species of snakes frequently eat rodents, which could confuse the scientists dissecting the snake, looking for pathogens as to its original origin. Many Chinese people also eat rodents.

One thing I read today, which is 100% questionable.... is from a young man who says he is quarantined. He claims there is 5000 infected in Wuhan alone, and 170 dead. Much of what he said was true, such as the train stations, roads and airports being blocked and the hospitals overran. But as to whether his numbers are correct, I've no clue.

The company I work for based in Minnesota has a 10 day do not report to work in main office for any sales staff coming back from traveling outside the US. Just one step to keep potential cases isolated.

Most are used to working remotely so still get productivity just not with human contact.

A quarantine in Wuhan, with a populous equivalent to New York is not likely to slow this thing down. The largest migration of people is about to start with Chinese New Year in full swing- hundreds of millions of trips are occurring with and estimate of 3 billion train and plane trips between Jan 10th & Feb 18. This pandemic couldn't happen at a worse time.

I always feel safer when the CDC is involved, jest of course.
People do not care, remember when the nurse with ebola bankrupted the wedding dress place. Fear can be as big a danger as the disease itself. So when people who are at high risk won't even lay low for a week, if for no other reason than peoples fears, shows how compassionate our society is.
Hope the disease doesn't get in the migratory birds.
