Some good news;

"Covid-19, the new coronavirus that has killed nearly 1,800 people in China, causes only mild disease in four out of five people who get it, WHO has said.

"“It appears that Covid-19 is not as deadly as other coronaviruses, including Sars and Mers,” said the WHO director general, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, adding that officials were “starting to get a clearer picture of the outbreak”.

"The conclusion comes from analysis of data from Chinese authorities relating to 44,000 cases of Covid-19 in Hubei province, where the coronavirus was first recorded."

The evacuees who were shown to have tested positive were taken out of the isolation chambers on the planes after both planes were flown to a special isolation unit in Omaha. The other evacuees were immediately tested as they went into quarantine at the Air Force bases and will be monitored closely for any sign of illness. They had all been on the buses together as the authorities didn't have the positive results until they arrived at the airport. None were showing symptoms when taken from the ship. This article says 10 had tested positive and are showing mild symptoms of the virus then further on, says again that 14 tested positive. One was taken to the bio-containment unit in Omaha. Pictures in the link.

"We have no documentation, it has all been verbal," Schwedhelm said, in regards to how many people have tested positive vs. are likely to test positive. "We want to start from scratch so we know what's what."

China has released the largest study yet of the coronavirus.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51540981?ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=facebook&ns_campaign=bbcnews&fbclid=IwAR1z-mJubdAsQH9C_yhlE9n1aKb1PgoBAWwrXAJdh-tocWvxl2-7zl2oHNY

Health officials in China have published the first details of more than 70,000 cases of Covid-19, in the biggest study since the outbreak began.

Data from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) found that more than 80% of the cases have been mild, with the sick and elderly most at risk.

The research also points to the high risk for medical staff.

It comes as a hospital director in Wuhan died from the virus on Tuesday.

The findings put the overall death rate of the Covid-19 virus at 2.3%.

China's latest official figures released on Tuesday put the overall death toll at 1,868 and 72,436 infections.

More than 12,000 people have recovered, according to Chinese authorities.

No word yet on test results from any of the Americans evacuated to the US from the Diamond Princess. In the mean time, 160 who were evacuated in early February on the first flights out of Wuhan China are scheduled to be released this morning as their quarantine ends. More will be released on Thursday.

UK “Super-spreader“ named.....

I’m not sure I would want to be as public as this guy is. Incubus .... ?

Poor guy got a bad rap through no fault of his own. How was he supposed to know? This virus is apparently being shed by asymptomatic people.  That's about as bad a situation as you can imagine.

Theories of SARS-CoV-2 origins

It is improbable that SARS-CoV-2 emerged through laboratory manipulation of an existing SARS-related coronavirus.

Passengers are leaving the Diamond Princess as the 14 day quarantine ends. I'm not so sure about this.

https://www.wfmz.com/news/ap/ap-business/passengers-begin-leaving-after-ship-s-virus-quarantine-ends/article_aa8277b2-b0c8-5a44-b874-52a22283e448.html?fbclid=IwAR0cPir-9VCRr9aDnEQ4SIgW5cwHfSPQq7nkwJQDpCWwdAcCx9sp937mN1Y

OKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Hundreds of passengers began leaving the Diamond Princess cruise ship Wednesday after the end of a much-criticized, two-week quarantine that failed to stop the spread of a new virus among passengers and crew.

Results were still pending for some passengers who've been tested for the coronavirusthat has infected tens of thousands of people in China and more than 540 on the ship.

Many foreign governments say they won't let in passengers from the ship until they have another quarantine period, so it was striking to see passengers disembark, get into taxis and disappear into Yokohama.

Even though Japanese officials insist the number of infected patients is leveling off, dozens of new cases on the ship continue to mount daily. On Tuesday, 88 people tested positive; a day earlier 99 others were found to have been infected.

Crew members, who couldn't be confined to their rooms over the last two weeks because they were working, are expected to stay on the ship.

Live report on ROK

: 20 people has been infected just one day, and this is local infection.

therefore total 51 infected exist in ROK.

and situation becomes much worse, because infected people don't aware the fact that they'are infected.

they meet numerous people.

more than thousands are exposed the dangers of Wuhan Corona.

now is beginning...
