Novel coronavirus (3)

10 February, 2020

Interesting take on the Corona Virus. (Hajime Takeuchi, Japan)

As to the number of positive cases in Japan there appears to be a typo, in writing the date.

On a lighter note, today is February 8th, I am in Pacific west coast.

Totally appreciate the fact that sun rises early in the east, yet February 14th is still nearly a week away!

Also talking about severity of symptoms, maybe we are not seeing acute cases as most new cases have been detected in China, not sure if the cases detected in Japan are the ones who have traveled from China or if there was person to person transmission in Japan itself.

Corona Virus having being detected only very recently will require more research to through more light on it’s pathogenicity, symptoms and prognosis.
