    They're starting to turn over some rocks now. The reports are only deaths that are known to hospitals. How many have died in their home or abode and either have not been discovered yet or aren't being reported to the authorities?

    China's Hubei province reports 242 new deaths, 14,840 new cases

    China's Hubei province reported a massive uptick in deaths and confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus on Wednesday. The province reported 242 new deaths and 14,840 new cases, bringing the death toll from the virus to at least 1,357 and the total number of confirmed cases to more than 60,000.

    So- they’ve changed reporting today.

    They are not going to report deaths now. Only the raw number of “laboratory confirmed” cases is now available today. An explanation is attached. This is from the WHO today:

    Interesting.

    Both those companies referenced, Inovia Pharmaceuticals (INO), and
    Novavax (NVAX) appear to be losing large amounts of money. I guess if either one is actually successful, they will be able to sell something eventually. Vaccines are not traditionally a high-dollar or high-profit item, but I guess, if you are the first to market, there could be money to be made. Its kind of like gambling in a casino- either you hit big or you lose everything, right?

    Meanwhile, I’m still trying to understand HOW the Chinese were able to identify the DNA so quickly.
    The only thing I can guess, is that it may very well have been a biological weapon they were working on for years, that accidentally got loose. That would explain how they knew the DNA profile.

    Some more "MYTHBUSTERS", from the World Health Organization (WHO).
    (I wonder where people come up with some of this stuff, but hey, I saw it on the internets, so it must be true, eh?)

    Good article today over on FEDWEEK- discussing the Cornona Virus and the impact on the TSP:


    The TSP Resumes Growth, but Virus Risks Remain

    Published: February 12, 2020

    by Lyn Alden
    The S&P 500, which the C Fund tracks, briefly reached new highs recently as the market largely shrugged off concerns about the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.
    Small cap stocks, tracked by the S Fund, have lagged their large cap counterparts in the past couple years. As of yesterday’s close, however, they touched new all-time highs for the first time since 2018.

    (SNIP) It’s unclear if these bounces will be sustained or not, especially with the Wuhan coronavirus continuing to disrupt global supply chains, but these are certainly good readings to see compared some of the other data out there.

    Virus Impacts
    The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak has now officially killed more people than the headline-grabbing SARS of 2003 did, but is still only a fraction of the number of people that die globally from the seasonal flu.
    The disease has a higher fatality rate than the flu, however, so the Chinese government has taken extreme measures to contain it, ranging from quarantining cities the size of New York City, to delaying the return to work in many provinces.

    Latest update from the World Health Organization (WHO). Growth continues, although the death rate seems to be leveling out.

    Coronavirus-infected Americans flown home against CDC's advice

    Source: Washington Post

    In the wee hours of a rainy Monday, more than a dozen buses sat on the tarmac at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Inside, 328 weary Americans wearing surgical masks and gloves waited anxiously to fly home after weeks in quarantine aboard the Diamond Princess, the luxury liner where the novel coronavirus had exploded into a ship-wide epidemic.

    But as the buses idled, U.S. officials wrestled with troubling news. New test results showed that 14 passengers were infected with the virus. The U.S. State Department had promised that no one with the infection would be allowed to board the planes.

    A decision had to be made. Let them all fly? Or leave them behind in Japanese hospitals?

    In Washington, where it was still Sunday afternoon, a fierce debate broke out: The State Department and a top Trump administration health official wanted to forge ahead. The infected passengers had no symptoms and could be segregated on the plane in a plastic-lined enclosure. But officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disagreed, contending they could still spread the virus. The CDC believed the 14 should not be flown back with uninfected passengers.

    <>

    The State Department won the argument. But unhappy CDC officials demanded to be left out of the news release that explained that infected people were being flown back to the United States — a move that would nearly double the number of known coronavirus cases in this country.

    That is one heck of a bad news report- 328 Americans- those from the Cruise ship flown back: 5 hours riding in, sitting on buses - many without wearing masks. Then 11 hours on a plane together. 328. And 13 have now tested positive, and are under care in Nebraska.

    I would wager that the majority of the 328 will likely catch the virus, but we have to wait another 14 days to know how many.

    This appears to be a very virulent strain. With at least a 2.6% fatality rate, according to Chinese published data so far- and it has been taking 4 to 14 days to test positive after exposure, according to the latest information. The deaths are occurring, on average, about 8 days after first exhibiting symptoms.

    God help us all.

    Not that COVID19 can't get worse but the flu has killed more people and across all age groups this year and they have said that the flu shot is 47% effective for adults and 50 something for children. At least the folks coming off the Diamond Princess are being closely watched. I'm more concerned about the folks that got off the Holland America ship and then authorities found out folks were infected. Or that one person that is sick and missed and comes in contact with hundreds here in the states before being found. Kind of like that women in South Korea.
    The wife is a little nervous. We fly to San Francisco the end of March for a two week cruise up and down the west coast.
    May the force be with us.
