    The statement of the Chinese Health Minister in that link, viz.,
    Chinese Health Minister Ma Xiaowei delivered the revelation that people can spread the virus before they have symptoms — which a veteran US health adviser called a “game changer” — but not in a good way.
    is demonstrated in the spread of the infection in southern Germany (Bavaria). Link
    Health officials said that the first person had contracted the disease from a Chinese colleague who had visited the area for a company workshop a week ago. Because the incubation period is believed to be unusually long — at up to two weeks — it is possible that the colleague had no symptoms at the time.

    "There were a total of around 40 employees who have been determined to have been in contact with the [Chinese] woman. Those affected will be tested on Wednesday as a precaution."
    The company in question was named as Webasto, which develops motor vehicle products, and is based in Stockdorf, near Munich.
    Webasto is to be shuttered until Sunday, the firm said in a statement. Employees at the headquarters have been instructed not to travel in Germany or abroad.

    For all who feel annoyed by comments of smelling like masala, wear this "in your face" face mask to deal with meat eaters ====> Coronavirus Prompts 'Go Vegan' Face Masks | PETA
    Seattle – On the heels of the first confirmed U.S. cases of coronavirus, PETA is offering new face masks (available to pre-order here) that protect against pathogens while spreading a lifesaving message: Go vegan. The SARS-like virus is believed to have originated in the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, China—a “wet market” where live and dead animals are sold for human consumption.​

    Since the start of this week, I have been wearing mask on the train to and fro work. Have ordered online washable masks, hope to receive it soon.

    The situation from last week to this is different, it seems the problem is as bad as feared, if not worse. Bracing for things to get worse :-( before really getting better.

    The 1918 Spanish Flu (a virus related to H1N1 of the latter day Bird Flu) killed the most people in British India. Apparently it was brought home by soldiers coming home from WW-I, landing in Bombay, and then taking the railways to various parts of India...to the south, north, and east. More than 10 million died in India, the most for any region of the world during that pandemic.

    This new Corona virus has at least a 2 week incubation period -- time the person walks about without any symptoms. In the modern times when people can go far in a jet airplane -- the virus can get a ride far. Airlines from HK, and Shanghai come direct to Indian cities. We'd likely see the detection of infections soon, because unlike poor people traveling by train who might pooh.pooh a mild fever, sore throat and headache, take a couple of pills and knock off work, the wealthy (airtravel affording folks) would get to a medical clinic, and hopefully someone at that location would want to know where they'd been, whom they'd been with and so on.

    :hello:Corona virus
    Number of people under thermal screening at kochi airport has gone up and also in hospitals. Great relief So far no case turned positive. Read reports in google and in today’s edit in the hindu to understand the gravity.

    2. Trade war relegated to last priority. God makes the humanity to learn constantly something ANEW.
    3. I trust God is Not unhappy with mankind and its leaders or comity of the nations.!
