Default Coronavirus Thread

I think this is a big enough situation to warrant its own thread, don't you?

Anyone read about it attacking the central nervous system literally stopping patients from breathing? I read about it a few days ago but haven't seen anything confirmed

I know anyone with respiratory issues is in serious trouble if they get it, but didn’t know it attacked the cns. It makes sense, just hadn’t heard it.

I guess Beijing did confirm this, not in all cases but it can

Arizona finally closed schools until the 27th

Was worried about my mom, she is a cafeteria manager for two schools and keeps everything clean but there is only so much you can control

At least two people in the comments suggesting it's incorrect. Seems hard to believe that a major city could be essentially fucked and literally no one would be reporting it.

I know kids don’t get much of it but my son has a rotten case of asthma. Not exciting times.

That tweet thread seemed a bit sensationalist. Agree with njx.

Sounds like what the Chinese were saying when the government were denying it so I won't brush it off

My wife's cousin is a resident at some Seattle hospital. They're very close. I'll see what I can find out. I know he's quarantined other than going to work. And his girlfriend who he lives with is completely quarantined because of him.

I’d be very OK with that, I know Seattle is supposed to be the most fucked place so hopefully it’s just not true. Maybe we can get some insight from babs or anyone else who is out there

I don't know of it really effecting children but there might be some cases there. At our age I think it's dangerous for people who smoke a lot, have lowered immune systems, or respiratory issues. Youngish people seem to be mostly ok but of course are still carriers.

I’m running that dubious twitter thread by my Seattle ER doctor pal. Will report back.

The difference, IMO, is cable news. They'd kill to have that kind of sensational stuff. There's no way they'd sit on it right now.

CDC calling for a cancellation or postponement of all events of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks.

Somehow the school I teach at is still open and I’m expected to go to work tomorrow and be surrounded by children covered in germs even while several students have older siblings whose high schools have confirmed cases. I’m definitely getting the Rona. Wish me luck boys.

Going to visit my parents to check on their will. This discussion will determine how close I sit to them and how often I cough.
