I feel like I should go ahead and say this. As long as you follow basic rules of the winter season and limit your air travel, your chances of catching Coronavirus is slim.

It looks like on the cruise ship the virus is spreading: https://www.dailymail.co....OUBLES-130-overnight.html

Thank you LL  Star

Wow - 40,000 confirmed cases with just under 1000 deaths?  That is scary.

No, it isn't actually. At least not at that point. More people fall ill with the influenza and die from it.
What however is scary is, that we got a taste of what might come if there was a Virus or Bacteria both very contagious and a lot more fatal.
We are still basking in modern medical achievements, with antibiotics, antiviral drugs and excellent sanitation keeping the western industrialized world safe from epidemics like the plague or cholera.
But we now we are faced with the almost  impossible task to contain an epidemic from spreading and even though China implemented a strict (and ruthless) quarantine (seriously hardly any other country on this planet would have managed that quite as well as China did ) borders closed, evacuated expats went into quarantine in their home countries, even though everyone is indeed apprehensive and careful, the virus spreads.
The Chinese are extremely obedient and calm, imagine being forced into virtual house arrest: I dare say, in many other countries there would already be very alarming social problems with possibly looting as the shops and streets are deserted and not even police are out to patrol, people would start needing food, however since many people aren't working, there is neither stuff at the markets, nor much money to spend it....
Have such a virus break or run riot in a country that can less strictly control her citizens, and we have a much bigger issue at hand. There would be no way we could contain it.

First, it would be a nightmare to be stuck on one of those cruise ships.

Second, the virus has not hit Africa or South America as yet. It could spread very fast in either of those places.

Stay safe. I think the problem is the mobility of people. Everyone travels everywhere and brings stuff to different places.

Indeed stay safe!

Very recent there were 4 or 5 victims in France, apparently all British. Source was according to the news a Brit who had traveled to and from Singapore. So I guess he contracted the disease in Singapore.

I meant “scary” as that’s a rather high mortality rate. The 2.5% is higher than the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1918.

And I agree with the rest of your post. A large outbreak here in the US would be ridiculously hard to contain.

We've had schools close down for a couple of days because of illness going through the schools, one district shut down because the elementary school had 70 absences in one day.  Another teacher in another school district commented that the day after they got back from Christmas vacation one of the schools had 40 absences!  I've talked with my library director about shutting down and it seems that a directive would have to come down from the county before the library would shut down.  I've been disinfecting everything once a week at the library!

An infectious disease doctor said he predicts 67% of the world’s population will get it.
There is no way to control it now since the Chinese lied for 2 weeks about what was happening at the beginning.
Not sure if it’s true , just reporting what he said.

The only source I am seeing for that is the Daily Mail. I'm not seeing that reported anywhere else, and the US media loves nothing more than inducing doomsday scenarios, so I'll take it with a grain of salt until I get a report from the CDC.

Very true but I literally heard the guy say it and was an infectious disease doctor but I don’t think from the CDC
