Li Wenliang: Coronavirus death of Wuhan doctor sparks anger - BBC News

'Hero who told the truth': Chinese rage over coronavirus death of whistleblower doctor | World news | The Guardian

Quote:
Li warned colleagues on social media in late December about a mysterious virus that would become the coronavirus epidemic and was detained by police in Wuhan on 3 January for “spreading false rumours”. He was forced to sign a police document to admit he had breached the law and had “seriously disrupted social order.”



For all the continuing censorship of posts about Dr Li, we seem to be hearing a lot more from Chinese people.

Still, only 3 fatal cases outside of Mainland China.

And in the same time frame, 4800 people died due to Influenza.

Pangolin Says It Has More Viruses Where That Came From If People Don’t Leave It The Fuck Alone – The Out And Abouter

Quote:
Prized for being trapped on this planet with us, pangolins are like all creatures that have come into direct contact with human beings: immediately and horribly exploited.

Researchers say they wouldn’t test the armoured mammals.

“Or eat them. It really isn’t worth it,” says Dr. Haffa Napal, at the Kenyan Center For Not Devouring Everything You Voracious Psychopaths.

A long time ago I remember reading about how new virus variants would tend to develop in China because of close proximity and shear numbers of the farming of swine, poultry and waterfowl and human habitation. Viruses could be transmitted and modified by interspecies exchange.

I heard recently on NPR that it was also thought other wildlife could contribute to the new strains, as apparently happened with SARS and some weird cat like thing they were eating. Specifically, something about bats in relation to corona. It was thought that intermediate carriers would be needed between wildlife and humans. This is being rethought because of research that showed the bat corona virus could infect human cells directly. This was done in the lab, so it's not clear how likely it would work in real world circumstances.

Ebola seems to have originated in similar wildlife to human contact, If I remember correctly.

Good info there. A tad disturbed when reading the "Symptoms page"
Paricularly :
A woman in her 70s, in Japan:

Day #1: 38° fever for a few minutes
Day #2-3: went on a bus tour
Day #5: visited a medical institution
Day #6: showed symptoms of pneumonia.

Or,...

Another patient, in China with a history of type 2 diabetes and hypertension:

Jan. 22: Fever and cough
Feb. 5: Died


Well, THIS is gonna be fun.

They closed a high school in our district today, because a staffer was potentially exposed. They did it for "an abundance of caution" - that's almost an understatement. I'm also wondering how a one day closure will prevent infection from spreading - it makes me wonder if they will close it for Friday, too.
