Iran's health ministry has confirmed 43 cases of the virus, including eight deaths.

That's an 18% mortality rate.

This is an early news program from the Global National tell-a-vision show:
Coronavirus outbreak: How Canada is responding to first "presumptive" case January 25th, 2020

At the 2mins26secs mark, the newsman interviews a man standing in a Hong Kong market quickly followed by a Paris, France street-corner scene at the 2mins30secs mark.
At the 3mins12secs mark, the newsman shows people wearing face masks walking in the same Hong Kong market.

I find that to be a peculiar way of portraying news.

So, would that be more of an indictment about the Iranian medical system or the fact that this disease is more virulent than first thought?

Little bit of both maybe but 43 cases isn't likely enough to have a meaningful statistic on.

I've never heard anyone being particularly critical of the state of Iranian healthcare be it dissidents or anyone at US State Department or DoD. They're hurting on the medical supplies due to sanctions but the compensating factor is that their doctors are first rate.

And yet we have this reaction from our gov't a fact which doesn't bode well for the future of this pandemic.

Filling the vacancy for a health expert on the NSC might be a good idea:

https://globalbiodefense.com/2020/02/19 ... -position/

I just heard Dr. Matt McCarthy express concerns on CNN about the number of Americans tested so far - not nearly enough to give a comprehensive picture - and the accuracy of the FDA-approved test for Covid-19. I’m not sure if he’s actively involved in this research area, however.

The Chinese have significant cultural issues to overcome regarding eating anything that moves. Some belated progress on that front, closing the belfry after the bats have flown:

With the Persian puppet show and Channel4News telling us the masks begin to appear around the 33 arches of the Ifsahan bridge or never letting a good crisis go to waste by advertizing beautiful Persian vacation sites, the fix is in. The markets will continue to crash until nobody is alive to notice.

The Centers for Disease Control tells people to start planning for this to "get bad".

CDC Outlines What Closing Schools, Businesses Would Look Like in Pandemic

“We are asking the American public to work with us to prepare for the expectation that this is going to be bad,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outlined Tuesday what schools and businesses will likely need to do if the COVID-19 virus becomes a pandemic.

Schools should consider dividing students into smaller groups or close and use “internet-based teleschooling,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters on a conference call.

“For adults, businesses can replace in-person meetings with video or telephone conferences and increase teleworking options,” Messonnier said.

She said local communities and cities may need to “modify, postpone or cancel mass gatherings.” Hospitals may need to triage patients differently, add more telehealth services and delay elective surgery, she said.

“We are asking the American public to work with us to prepare for the expectation that this is going to be bad,” she said. “Now is the time for businesses, hospitals, communities, schools and everyday people to begin preparing.”

Last week, U.S. health officials started warning businesses, schools and parents to start preparing for the deadly new coronavirus that’s infected more than 80,000 and killed at least 2,700 to become a global pandemic. The localized outbreaks in places such as Italy and Iran are fueling concerns among infectious disease experts and scientists that the virus is spreading too quickly and may be past the point of containment.

On Monday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, called the outbreaks outside of China “deeply concerning.”

“I understand this whole situation may seem overwhelming and that disruption to everyday life may be severe. But these are things that people need to start thinking about now,” Messionnier said on Tuesday. “You should think about what you would do for child care if schools or daycares closed.”

The CDC late Monday confirmed 53 cases in the U.S., a majority of which came from passengers repatriated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship that was quarantined off the coast of Japan. The data shows that 36 of the cases are attributed to the cruise ship, three patients were infected in Wuhan and later evacuated to the U.S. and the rest were largely infected while traveling overseas.

Just two cases were contracted through person-to-person contact in the U.S., the CDC said.
