There is a lot of information circulating out there now. Bayou Renaissance Man
has a good blog post on the threat based on age and pre-existing conditions.
|Don’t forget who engineered this
plague that will cause you either
inconvenience, illness or death.
Remember, the virus is persistent. It can remain airborne and infectious for up to three hours, and it can remain active and infectious on glass, plastic or other dry surfaces for a week. The incubation period is usually under two weeks before symptoms present, but it could be as long as a month based on sources in China.
Most people will experience a flu from mild to wild, but if you infect somebody who is in a high risk category, they will likely get very ill and may die. (See the chart at BR Man, referenced above)
Unpublished data show Chinese authorities have identified at least 266 people who were infected before December 31 – a time when Wuhan authorities were busy punishing a group of doctors for sounding the alarm of a ‘SARS-like’ disease.
The classified document, obtained by South China Morning Post
, comes as coronavirus fears spread across Europe after cases in Italy, Spain and France spiked.
There is really nothing to worry about unless you have lung issues, coronary artery disease, diabetes or a compromised immune system, or are over about 70. If you’re in the risk zone your chance of dying if you contract COVID-19 is elevated.
