Wuhan launched a patriotic sanitary campaign in winter and spring with the theme of "renovating the environment, cleaning homes, and welcoming the festival". It cleared 309 tons of garbage, used 48,550 rodent control facilities, and put 860 kg of rat medicine.

Wuhan "closed city" people snapped up food, a cabbage soared to 50 yuan


The epidemic of new coronavirus pneumonia continues to spread. Wuhan, which has the largest number of confirmed cases, will close the departure corridors of airports and train stations from 10 am today (23rd). Public transportation and long-distance passenger transport are temporarily suspended. Reason not to leave Wuhan.

It is reported that after Wuhan "closed the city", local supermarkets experienced a surge in purchases and food prices skyrocketed. A Chinese cabbage even rose to more than 50 yuan (RMB, the same below).

According to online news, after the official announcement of "closing the city," a rush of buying has occurred in Wuhan, and fresh food prices in supermarkets have increased sharply, but they have been snapped up.


Comment: 50 Yuan = $7.21USD for a head of cabbage.

This is going to be a nightmare in those cities. There better be a plan to get supplies in to these closed cities.

The first suspected case of Wuhan pneumonia in Gansu has been eating at the same table with a Wuhan person


The pneumonia epidemic in Wuhan continued to spread. According to official sources, the first suspected case was found in Gansu today (23rd), and the patient recently ate at the same table as a Wuhan person.

[snip]

It is reported that the patient's surname is Wu, 43 years old, male, now living in Lanzhou. On January 11, 2020, Wu Nan went on a business trip to Hunan and Jiangxi provinces, during which he had dinner at the same table with people from Wuhan. He returned to Lanzhou on the evening of January 17 and suffered fever and other discomforts on January 18. He went to Lanzhou Pulmonary Hospital for treatment on January 21 and was treated in isolation. Tested by the Gansu and Lanzhou CDC laboratories, they were all positive for the new coronavirus.

Comment: 2nd or 3rd gen?

Wuhan city closure epidemic or out of control anxiety increased

Wuhan, China started to block the city at 10 o'clock on January 23, and can only enter but not go out. 11 million Wuhan people were isolated. It has been more than a month since the first case of new coronavirus pneumonia was found. Wuhan coronavirus carriers have been found in nearly half of China's provinces, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, the United States, and Japan.

[snip]

The outbreak in Wuhan seems to be out of control.

[snip]

ome analysts have suggested that the actual number of infections may be higher because some patients are not included in the hospital's statistics. For example, a field survey by Sanlian Weekly cited a nurse who revealed that many hospitals do not accept pneumonia patients in the seafood market. Huang Chang, a seafood market owner who did not tell the truth, said his discharge order did not indicate new coronavirus pneumonia.

One day before the Wuhan authorities announced the decision to close the city, a Chinese netizen revealed that Academician Zhong Nanshan believed that the epidemic would be more dangerous than SARS in 2003. The high incidence period is expected to be "end of February to end of March." He suggested that Wuhan be closed down and rejected by the relevant leaders. Therefore, he decided not to accept any media interviews.

Caught With Our Masks Down (Revisited)

We've looked at the conflicting data on the effectiveness of surgical masks many times over the years (see here, here, and here), and there is little consensus on their merit in protecting the wearer.

N95 masks are presumed superior, but are 10 times more expensive, difficult to wear for extended periods of time, should be replaced after a few hours of wear, and each individual must be `fit-tested' (see Survival Of The Fit-tested).


Comment: Posted as there are links here that compare N95 masks to surgical masks. To me, it only makes sense to go with the N95s. But, hey, do what you want. :-)

Get Your Household Ready for Pandemic Flu [PDF – 16 pages]

Among their recommendations, the following advice:

Plan to have extra supplies of important items on hand. For example, keep on hand extra supplies like soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, tissues, and disposable facemasks.

If you or your household members have a chronic condition and regularly take prescription drugs, talk to your health care provider, pharmacist, and insurance provider about keeping an emergency supply of medications at home. These supplies can always be used for a different emergency and then restocked.

I have also been chatting to a friend living in China to get some information. He has now lived through numerous infectious disease scares there and is fairly level headed. This is what he said (He is not in Wuhan).

"We know about it, in fact more than the media is letting on, number of confirmed cases has to be higher, we know of other cities not reported in China that have it...MSM is only getting fed by Beijing. We are of course taking all precautions, masks, washing hands at all ops, and antibacterial measures. This seems a bad one .. and not stopping, half life of a week and human to human viral transmission, not looking good."

Coronavirus: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan Writes To Centre On Indian Nurses In Saudi Arabia


Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has written to Foreign Minister S Jaishankar after reports emerged of Indian nurses in Saudi Arabia suspected to be affected by a deadly strain of the Coronavirus that originated in China and has killed 17 people and infected at least 570, most of them in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

"Corona outbreak among nurses in Azir Aba Al Hayat hospital in Saudi Arabia should be considered seriously and necessary steps must be taken," Chief Minister Pinararyi Vijayan said.

Kerala nurse in Saudi contracts China virus, 30 more quarantined in hospital

At least thirty nurses from Kerala were reportedly quarantined in a hospital in Saudi Arabia after one of them tested positive for deadly coronavirus that claimed several lives in China, said their relatives.

[snip]

The incident came to light after some of the affected nurses called up their relatives back home and complained about their situation. “We have been herded in two rooms of the hospital for more than two days. No proper tests were done and we are not treated properly. We have also complained to Indian Embassy officials,” one of them told a Malayalam news channel over the phone.

[snip]

As per details available, a 38-year-old nurse hailing from Ettumanoor in Kottayam was contracted the virus while treating a Filipino who had tested positive for the deadly virus. Later all nurses who came in contact with the affected nurse were isolated and put under observation. But quarantined nurses said it was a panic reaction and they were isolated without any tests or procedures.

We were told out of 30 nurses swab tests were conducted in 20 and all were tested positive. All of them have been isolated because they have no idea about the incubation period of the virus. Their condition is really pitiable,” said one of the relatives who did not want to be identified.
