Wuhan is QUARANTINED: Ground zero for deadly coronavirus halts all travel in AND out of the city after the CDC begins screening at five US airports as the disease MUTATES after killing 17 and infecting up to 10,000

Another UK tabloid. Tomorrows chip wrapper we said in the days of newspapers being an entity.

 

Correct on the death toll, 'up to' means they don't know how many infected. It's around 473 as of last night.

In Bangkok just avoid Asiatique, McDonald's in Amarin and Big C Ratchdamri and you'll be fine.  😁

This is a very serious situation. 547 cases have been confirmed. In China alone! It takes time to check that many people. In the meantime, those people have been interacting with the neighbors, acquaintances, business colleagues etc. They’ve been taking planes, buses, autos, taxis...and touching a lot of things that multiple people handle.  Like a steering wheel, condiments in restaurants, suitcase handles, tray tables and arm rests, and touch screens...  if the virus has mutated, you can double the exponential rate of growth... wear a mask, wash your hands, Carry hand sanitizers, and avoid crowds, if you can. This is no joke. Dismissal of initial warnings turn small outbreaks into epidemics, and epidemics into pandemics. 

Not really, Common cold kills approx 70,000 with cases a year globally, flu variations many more... biggest problem is its Chinese new year and what that means for travel. 

 

 A town 7 km from where the virus was discovered in Wuhan had a state run banquet with 100,000 people eating off of the same dishes. This was 2 days after 49 cases were confirmed in Wuhan. Bet that helped it along. 

 

You can panic if you like.

Come on TAT, get your collective fingers out.

 

This is a perfect opportunity to increase tourist arrivals.

 

Perhaps a free bottle of ice, cold Corona beer to cool their massive temperatures.

Well China has now put a complete lockdown on travel to, from and inside Wuhan province. Planes, trains, buses and even subways have been stopped to contain the virus.
