14 healthcare workers have tested positive for new strain of coronavirus, doctor says, confirming human-to-human transmission – CCTV https://t.co/Gagmu5QOpb— BNO News (@BNONews) January 20, 2020
The China coronavirus epidemic is a shitshow. Millions of people are locked down prior to the Lunar New Year celebrations when everyone travels to their homes. City after city is being quarantined.
Chinese officials are claiming it’s all under control but Facebook posts and Tweets suggest the exact opposite. I have rounded up a few for you.
A weibo video posted by a person claiming to be a nurse in #Wuhan Red Cross Hospital. She said medical workers and patients were stuck with three deceased in a packed hospital corridor. No one is here to take care of the bodies. #WuhanPneumonia pic.twitter.com/MKumfLDPki— Thomas Yau (@Tominmedill) January 24, 2020
And we’re guessing that the disgusting habit of eating bat soup and live mice isn’t helping. We’ve even heard that snakes may be the species that finally gave us human to human transmission. In other reports, not yet confirmed, the Chinese are suggesting that spit from an infected person that gets in your eye can lead to infection.
