I read about the masks. Their main success is you not touching your boat.

Rectal thermometer?

Here's a couple of links from the CDC, older articles that apply well to current concerns:

Might have a case here in my county.  Person who returned from China was feeling ill has been hospitalized due to an excess of caution.  Still unconfirmed if it really is Corona Virus.   

And here I was patting myself on the back for living in the sticks, where nobody ever wants to go.

The common flu seems to be more deadly than the corona virus - if you get treatment in time.

I thought I saw that cases had been reported in India.  That might be hard to contain.

>> The common flu seems to be more deadly than the corona virus - if you get treatment in time.

That depends on whose stats / speculations you read. It also depends on hospitals not being overwhelmed.

This thing spreads easily so there will be many cases in many places as the story unfolds. Even if the overall fatality percentages turned out to be no worse than flu (a big if), sheer numbers will make it deadly.

At this point there's no cure, only supportive treatment. If you catch this it will be your own immune system that gets you through.

So take care of yourself in every way you know how.
