    That is not over reacting and people can be Carriers without any symptoms. What a mess.

    This is only the beginning ! Everyone has been exposed before symptoms & 14 days is not long enough !

    The author of this coronavirus precautionary measures is James Robb, MD UC San Diego. It’s a really great read.

    Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic

    Dear Colleagues, as some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

    The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.

    Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

    1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

    2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

    3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

    4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

    5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

    6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home's entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can't immediately wash your hands.

    7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

    What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

    1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

    Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

    2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

    3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

    4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY "cold-like" symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

    I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

    I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! Jim

    Diamond Princess cruise ship was a disaster. Life Care Center of Kirkland is the next disaster. In each case, clusters were mishandled that resulted in broad spreading. Close down Life Care Center today. Everyone is removed to different locations and kept in isolation. No? Then repeat the catastrophe of Diamond Princess and Life Care Center is going to have DOZENS of deaths.

    Quarantined is the key to avoiding pandemic! It is more important than the test kit for now. What they have done so far to evacuated and close touched people are Wrong! that's why there are many unknown source cases.

    To correct what the reporter said…Family and friends don't need to self quarantine. Wrong….unless they have had Zero contact. Under infection contact guidelines any close contact–6 ft or less–every person should self quarantine. Get it straight. KING 5

    Trump's underfunded CDC has only a few test kits. Trump is a BabyCager and SeniorKiller. If you voted for him you're also a Babycager and SeniorKiller too. Trump's going to quarantine the homeless on the streets, as usual. Enjoy!

    The same thing in EU. Looks like most of the people here on Youtube know more and are more prepared to adress this situation than the medical staff and the officials on the field. Very very concerning. WHO dictates wrong or insuficient measures everywhere.

    Same story here in New York. One lady went into Bellevue hospital with flue like symptoms and they let her walk out. Now she’s in Mount Sinai and tested positive! What a fiasco! Now the numbers will rise in the coming days here in NY as well. 🙄

    Asymptomatic spread is why this is SOOOOOOOOOOO CONTAGIOUS! Don't be Stupid.

  • Reply Florida Island Girl March 3, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Americans the numbers are going to grow exponentially in the coming days because doctors were not allowed to test and use their professional judgment. Please wear mask, goggles, gloves in public along with hand washing and avoiding crowded areas. At this point mask, gloves, goggles, and lysol spray at work are a must. Patient 1 from Wuhan's virus genome is the same genome as in patient 80. That means many people are infected in the six weeks between patient 1 and 80. All public transportation is NOT sanitizing except the Diamond Princess. Please stop listening to the officials and look at what South Korea is doing. Mask, gloves, goggles help in a growing airborne and aerosolized pandemic or epidemic.

  • Reply Connie Pritchard Reinhardt March 3, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Yep.. Any one in contact needs to self quarantine. So do those who come in contact with others. This is why quarantine. Is not working. Ugh. I would quarantine.. Just for safety for my freinds family and neighbors. I would want to find out i was a carrier. And i unknowingly killed someone.

  • Reply Ridgepole March 3, 2020 at 12:25 pm

    You can spread it with no symptoms.. Yet your telling people that were exposed, unless symptomatic dont quarantine.. Cant fix stupid.

    This country is run by morons that allowed this virus in and people to be REPATRIATED to all parts of the country. COVID-19 has been spreading through the US for a month. It will be 100x as bad as China in the USA. Why? Because the US has freedom. The freedom to escape a city due to fear. Freedom to spread the virus state to state with no control. The US cannot beat people, arrest people, build barricades around their homes, weld people in their homes, build walls around cities, force people to wear masks, kill people for speaking out, imprison people for spreading rumors (7 years), or rip them from their homes and put them in hospitals where the virus replicates and spreads in their body in higher numbers. This virus is not the flu, it is ten times worse. It destroys your kidneys, nerves, and lungs. The young and old both die from this and it hasn't even mutated yet. In Italy and Iran it is killing 10% of infected. The healthiest people will become super spreaders not even knowing they have it. The markets will probably rebound today, but they will fall as this spreads across the US like wild fire as those in big cities on the coasts flee to the midwest in panic!

    The Seattle govt has had 1.5 months to prepare, get test kits, and masks. Total incompetence from the city officials and government. The CDC sent out defective test kits to 50 states, allowing the spread to continue.Hospitals still cannot get working test kits today in the US. 74 people died in January from pneumonia, who where not tested. These people need to be fired! Don't be fooled by their lies, this is not the flu. The flu doesn't destroy your lungs, kidneys, and nervous system. Nor other organs in your body. The flu at best has a 1% kill rate. This is averaging 4% to 10% globally. China is lying about the severity in their country. Spanish Flu had a 1% kill rate and it spread globally. You don't close trade, borders, weld people in their homes, pull people from their homes and put them in hospitals for the FLU. Never has this happened. They do not want you to panic, sell your stocks, stock pile found, nor make a run on the banks! Keep calm and slowly die!

    Let me get this straight 🤔 The first part of this report pretty much proves there is ASYMPTOMATIC spread as experts have documented, the second half is families complaining of overreacting and our clueless CDC telling people it’s ok if you were around possible infected if they had no symptoms. Ffs do some research and learn from China’s epidemic. This is nothing but straight negligence at this point

    Quarantine for two weeks? No no. More like a month. And this is where watching what happened in Wuhan is beneficial. Cdc says families and friends of those who are not showing symptoms don't need to self-quarantine?!?! 😮 There was a doc who went on the Diamond princess ship. After he had been on it, he self quarantined. Start at the 10:50 mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WOU8_VyGpg I have Jesus. I'll be fine. I had a word one morning in my sleep: Hospitals full. You'll be fine.
