They all form part of a broader family of coronaviruses. Thus the name.

They're calling it novel coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV. This is the Wuhan version.

Eish, the human makeup is very complicated:

The whole world is up in arms about this virus, hospitals built in 8 days, borders closed, travel bans, and so on.
A quick Google search on annual deaths that do not attract our attention on the same scale is astonishing:

Worldwide Annual death estimates

Road deaths - 1.35million people
Flu - 650000
AIDS related illness - 570000
Malaria - 400000
Diabetes- 1.5million
Smoking related - 7 million
ALcohol related - 3.3 million

Of this list, Flu and Malaria can be attributed to outside factors but the rest is our own doing and can be prevented with some commitment.

Seems like the infections are slowing down and those who recover are recovering now faster than those dying.
But then only on the latest data. Hope it improves.

Rumor has it that the first case of infection in SA was discovered at Ellisras at Witpoort Hospital. Patient being moved to Polokwane tomorrow.
Don't know how true.

I believe the virus is already in SA. The government say SA is virus free. I went to China Town in Bruma the past weekend, all Chinese new year festivals cancelled, as for a month end it was very, very quiet, shop owners were wearing their little masks that begs the question........what does the SA Chinese know, that the SA government does not........

They just do as their government tells them! The instructions are not country specific.
