It's scaling fast. I suspect the infection numbers coming out of China are underestimated.

-like virus has been transmitted from person to person, Chinese health authorities say
A new SARS-like virus spreading in China and into other countries in Asia has been transmitted from person to person, Chinese health authorities said today, as the number of confirmed cases rose to 224.
Health workers in Wuhan in central China, where most of the cases have been confirmed, as well as family members who have not travelled to the city have been infected by the new type of coronavirus, according to comments reported by state media.
Evidence suggests it has begun to spread more rapidly just days ahead of the Lunar New Year celebration – China’s busiest travel season.
Over the weekend, Canada said it plans to take measures at some major airports in the coming week to identify people travelling from Wuhan who may have flu-like symptoms.

Enhanced infection-control measures are being put in place amid concerns about the international spread of coronavirus, which China says can be transmitted between humans. Four people have been killed so far and more than 200 have fallen ill, including a handful outside of China.


B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer said she has “no doubt” there will be cases in Canada. But Bonnie Henry noted that officials are better prepared to deal with this virus than they were with the SARS outbreak in 2003, when 44 people in Canada died.


In this column, André Picard argues that no country has learned more from SARS missteps than Canada.


On Tuesday, Chinese state media said the number of deaths has risen to six and confirmed cases to 291. The World Health Organization is holding an emergency meeting tomorrow to assess the risk and determine whether it constitutes a public-health emergency.

The number of people infected by the Wuhan coronavirus could potentially double every six days in the absence of a major intervention by public health authorities, according to Professor Gabriel Leung, chair of public health medicine at University of Hong Kong (HKU).

US just advised against travel to China. It's only a matter of time before the US and other countries prevent travelers from China. It is too late now, but I bet some countries will do it. Mongolia has already shut their border. Cases of this virus are already in Africa, and there they can spread without any control or restriction. It will be fully global before Spring. I just hope it doesn't get more severe by mutation.
