Al Bundy Posted January 27, 2020 Share Posted January 27, 2020 I hear quite a bit of stuff and am not certain exactly what is accurate. Keep this in mind while reading. I do believe what I am saying below is true or at least some truth, but cant confirm. I'm not real sure what is common knowledge but the city of Wuhan is (supposedly) shut down. Public transpo, airlines, cabs, etc not running. This is a city the size of London. Can you imagine London being shut down???? Hospitals are over run and turning people away. Also doctors any doctor is now pulled into this. If you are a podiatrist for example, guess what? You are now on infectious disease duty. Its apparently a law or highly encouraged that you need to wear a mask in public. The situation there is highly under reported. The virus has spread to a number of other cities that are not yet in the news. There are stories I hear that may/may not be true. The one that sticks out is a sick woman was turned away at the hospital and began to cough/spit/hack on the stair railings trying hard to spread her germs and infect other people. If true, what a ..... Another a woman "escaped" from Wuhan and returned to France. She was ill and had a fever but somehow alleviated it enough to make it through screening. She posted how happy she was she was able to beat the system. Luckily some people have a heart and turned her in to French authorities after reading these posts. French authorities actually tracked her down and presumably quarantined her. Right now is New Year in China. Its a very festive occasion and people travel all over to visit family, friends. The government is encouraging people not to visit others and to stay home. Also, the government has tried to extend New Year, and telling people not to return to work just yet. An unconfirmed RUMOR is the disease is in Flushing, NY. JFK has (had?) direct flights to Wuhan so this COULD be accurate. One of the things I keep wondering is if a good portion of this is a knee jerk reaction. The more I hear, the less I think its a knee jerk though. I do think however that the hospitals are overrun with knee jerk people. Some percent of people must have it, but I am guessing its not a high percent. Also plain old influenza kills people in the US every year. Is this virus any worse or on par??? Stay safe.. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
