so has anybody found out what it is being successfully treated with? what kind of med?

I don't think there is any med so far. They have claimed HIV cocktail drugs had been effective but I haven't heard much about that lately. They are very expensive. 

Last I heard it was a combo of Theraflu and anti-retrovirals (HIV drugs). 

John are you asking to buy some securities?

A Chinese friend who lives in NJ said he heard from some relatives that the death toll in Wutan is 200k and they can't creamate the bodies fast enough.

Can we just nuke China to save the rest of the world?

 

 

 

I'm kidding. Or am I?

Might have to

Wouldn't burning bodies just put MORE of the virus in the air and cause it to spread more?

Also, it's in N. Korea.  Hopefully they are taking precautions to limit its spread.  They could not handle anything on the scale of what is happening in China.

Vaccine discovered?  Video in link

 

 

U.S.-based Inovio Pharmaceuticals says it has discovered coronavirus vaccine

https://finance.yahoo.com/

Yahoo Finance VideoFebruary 14, 2020

A U.S. biotech company says it has created a coronavirus vaccine. Pennsylvania-based Inovio Pharmaceuticals' San Diego lab made the discovery reportedly just hours after getting access to the virus' genetic sequence last month. Inovio Pharmaceuticals CEO Dr. J Joseph Kim joins Yahoo Finance's On the Move to discuss.

No, but it puts sulfur dioxide into the air which is a major irritant for lungs. Not a great idea with a huge outbreak that causes acute respiratory distress.

Listen to this guy. I got the flu vaccine for the first time this year due to a bad flu last year.

 

Now I'm 100% autistic. Couldn't believe it!

There seems to be mounting evidence that it didn't start in the wet seafood market, and was in fact sourced from the their disease control lab that was just 300 yards away from the market.

This would still be a better scenerio than the virus getting engineered in the lab.  It sounds like someone at their disease control center might have gotten it from a bat during their experiments.  At least it would naturally occuring if this is the case.

US influenza:

13,000,000 cases

180,000 hospitalizations 

10,000 deaths 

US influenza:

13,000,000 - 10,000 deaths = 12,990,000 recoveries

Deaths / Recovery ratio = 1 death / 1,299 recoveries

 

Coronavirus:

909 deaths / 3,322 recoveries

Death / Recovery ratio = 1 death / 3.65 recoveries

 

Do you see why this is a bigger deal than the flu?

 

I see your point but this isn’t the way outbreaks are handled. The medics in China don’t have time to call those other people and say ‘hey, how are you feeling? Better now??’ You’re alive until you turn up dead in this situation.

 

When the worst of this is under control you will start to see the ‘difference’ in figures close. The nature of the situation at present, midway during an outbreak doesn’t allow for that at the moment. A realistic death rate for this virus is 1-3%.
 

Until things calm down and hospitals can genuinely say ‘hey, 3 months ago we treated this person and no we havnt seen them since but they havnt turned up dead, so we assume they are alive and let’s update figures accordingly’ there will always be this ‘difference’. 
 

This is fairly standard behavior during an outbreak. Medics in China are working 20+ hours a day and are focusing on sick people, not those who have been treated, sent home and havnt come back either for more treatment or to die.
