Coronavirus

The next big thing maybe?

Could be a hot topic soon. Spreading fast! Most of China is on lockdown as of this morning. Talking millions of people. The first case in Washington STATE already. I'm reading that it was started by them nasty bastards eating meat that had contact with infected rodents. No Chinese equivalents to the FDA over there I take it. Or just over ran with nasty rodents?

Searched for a repeat and check out the last post here

After watching the news I think we are due for a plague. First case in Washington Dc already. Well great! Now we just need a few in California, New York, Chicago and a few more places and maybe the USA can get back to being awesome again.

Likely won't be a big deal.

But yes, it's caused by China being full of nasty people doing nasty shit. Anywhere you have humans in close proximity to animals without any sanitation you get nifty diseases that break the species barrier.

Don't forget it's wet climate; in addition to your points list.

Said wet climate is a yuge factor.

Traced to snakes

Chinese Coronavirus Outbreak Traced Back To Snakes, Study Finds
by John Anderer

WUHAN, China — The emergence of a new coronavirus strain in Wuhan, China last month has put the entire world on alert. Following the recent revelation that the virus can in fact be spread via human-to-human transmission, Chinese authorities have halted flights and trains departing the city and inhabitants have been advised not to travel. Meanwhile researchers have been working tirelessly to understand this new health risk, both its origins and nature, in order to formulate the best way to stop a full blown epidemic. Now, researchers appear to have zeroed in on how the virus, officially named 2019-nCoV by the World Health Organization, first spread to humans: exposure to snakes at a wholesale market.

The study concludes that the first human diagnosed with this strain of coronavirus had, in all likelihood, visited a market in Wuhan where a large assortment of wildlife were available for purchase, including snakes, bats, farm animals, poultry, and seafood.

A detailed genetic analysis of the virus was performed, in which it was compared to any available genetic information on other viruses from across the world and the animal kingdom. This work resulted in the conclusion that this new virus first formed due to the combination of a coronavirus strain usually found in bats with another coronavirus strain of largely “unknown origin.” The product of this combination was a new virus that featured a mix, or “recombination,” of a viral protein that recognizes and binds to host cell receptors. This ability to recognize and bind to host cells is effectively what allows viruses to enter new hosts, leading to infection and disease.

So, while the very beginnings of 2019-nCoV appear to be linked to bats, researchers also found evidence that the coronavirus at some point made its way into snakes before ultimately reaching human patient zero. It was this aforementioned ability to recombine within the viral receptor-binding protein that likely facilitated the virus’ cross-species transmission from snakes to humans.


“Results derived from our evolutionary analysis suggest for the first time that snake is the most probable wildlife animal reservoir for the 2019-nCoV,” the study reads. “New information obtained from our evolutionary analysis is highly significant for effective control of the outbreak caused by the 2019-nCoV-induced pneumonia.”

An extra editorial accompanying the study adds that while it is very likely that new vaccines or anti-viral drugs will have to be developed to fight this suddenly infamous strain of coronavirus, pre-existing antiviral drugs should at least be tested out, as it is possible they may be effective in fighting it.

The study is published in the Journal of Medical Virology.

When they get oil out of the sewer and then cook food with it, you're going to get a plague.

First US case is in Washington state Not DC

23 January 15:45 GMT — Scientists dismiss claim that snakes spread virus

Scientists are trying to identify the animals in which the epidemic probably began. In a controversial study published last night, a team of researchers in China claimed snakes were the culprit.

But many scientists are sceptical of this claim and say there is no proof that viruses such as those behind the outbreak can infect species other than mammals and birds. “Nothing supports snakes being involved,” says David Robertson, a virologist at the University of Glasgow, UK.

23 January 15:00 GMT — Chinese authorities lock down Huanggang

A second city in China — Huanggang — is going into a similar lockdown as Wuhan. Huanggang has a population of about 6 million people and is about 70 kilometres from Wuhan. Public bus and railway operations will be suspended from midnight, Reuters reports. A third city, nearby Ezhou, has shut its train stations.

23 January 04.00 GMT — Chinese government closes off Wuhan

Chinese authorities have suspended all travel in and out of Wuhan — the city at the centre of the outbreak, home to more than 11 million people — in an effort to control the worsening outbreak. Since 10 a.m. Chinese local time, planes and trains leaving the city have been suspended, and buses and the city’s subway have also stopped running.





22 January 20.00 GMT — World Health Organization delays decision on emergency declaration

The World Health Organization (WHO) has postponed a decision on whether to declare the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern”— a step it reserves for events that pose a risk to multiple countries and that requires a coordinated international response. The move follows a meeting of a committee organized to respond to the outbreak. The same committee will meet again on 23 January.

“This is an evolving and complex situation,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference after the meeting.

22 January 16.45 GMT — Five questions researchers have about China virus

Scientists around the world are racing to find out more about the coronavirus — including how it spreads and information about its genetic sequences. Researchers have already sequenced several strains of the virus taken from infected people. This information can help to reveal how easily the virus can pass between humans and whether the outbreak has the potential to persist. Researchers in China are also hoping to study whether drugs could be developed to fight the virus.

21 January 19.45 GMT — First US case confirmed

The United States has confirmed its first case of the new coronavirus, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on 21 January. A 30-year-old man in Washington state has been diagnosed with the illness after a trip to China, making the United States the fifth country to report the disease — and the first outside Asia.

The man had been admitted to a hospital in Washington last week with pneumonia, but “is right now, very healthy”, Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases in Atlanta, Georgia, told reporters. He is under observation at the hospital.


How quickly does the Wuhan virus spread?
The CDC says that the man did not have symptoms on his arrival in Seattle, Washington, but developed a fever on 16 January and sought treatment. A hospital in Washington state collected blood from the man and shipped it to the CDC, which identified the virus in the samples on 20 January. The CDC is now tracking down individuals who had contact with the man.

International airports in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, have been screening arriving passengers for signs of coronavirus infection since 17 January. All three receive direct flights from Wuhan. The CDC says it will now expand the screening to airports in Atlanta and Chicago, Illinois. All travellers leaving Wuhan for the United States will be routed to one of the five airports that have screening programmes.

They used to do a red and green restaurant report weekly on the local news.
Green were those who had little or no violations of the health code
Red were those who not only had violations but were shut down till they brought everything up to code. Guess which restaurants were almost always on the red report each week!
