We have had outbreaks before (saudi 2012)

Is it as serious as the news is scare mongering or like other virus outbreaks gonna be over not long after it starts.

Like the real life plague game on your phone this shot and genuinely scary.

This isn't your simple flu mutation imo and could be very serious.
The positive thing is getting the virus isn’t terminal. 41 people out of 1,200 infected so far have died and the vast majority being elderly and having previous respiratory issues.

The BBC is saying only one younger and healthier person, who’s a doctor, has died so far.

SAR, MERS, and the common cold are all forms of a coronavirus.

Something I never knew till today.

I’ve had a cold since new year, think I was unfortunate enough to pick one up, get rid and pick another up immediately afterwards. As such my chest is a bit fucked and breathing hasn’t been what it usually is.

If I end up with this thing I might have had it.
