Before you get a gun, stock up on groceries, meds and other supplies so you could get by for a few weeks without needing to go out.

And maybe some new board games.

5-6 day incubation time. This thing has potential.

So, are people contagious during the incubation period?

Yeah, might get to the point where it would be best to stay inside.  I can't see the virus causing a mad max scenario just yet.

>inside

Outside SE Asia, I think that urban areas with diverse, transient international populations are the highest risk.  Airports, tourist areas, and -maybe- universities might be the first hot spots.

Was thinking this too, the Bay Area is probably among the most likely to have an outbreak if it happens in North America.  My wife went to an Asian grocery store yesterday (to prep for Chinese New Year), she said a lot of people were wearing masks.

Latest info is up to 14 days incubation, unknown if contagious before symptomatic.
Humans in 2020 can cover a lot of ground over 14 days.

Disruptions to normal supply lines because of quarantines etc. could create many difficulties even if the disease never reached your area.

Stock up now while supply lines are functional and stores can replenish what you buy.

If the scare passes, you can just eat / use your supplies.

Also prudent: gather info and supplies for treating flu symptoms at home.

A new coronavirus that has spread to almost 2,000 people is infectious in its incubation period - before symptoms show - making it harder to contain, Chinese officials say.

That's bad.

I still have a solar oven up in my attic from the last one.

Flew Hanoi to Singapore today, never seen so many masks and they are pretty popular normally.

Had to fill in a form on hotel check-in, countries visited, symptoms etc THEN they took our temperature!
