    It very obviously is an issue. If it is a non-issue then why the health warnings at airports and train stations?

    Need to rely on people to protect themselves with face masks and hand washing.

    thank you;

    I asked because I had repeatedly read in this forum about allegedly false anti-Chinese campaigns like, quote, Uighur camps, end of quote just to say what I mean (and not to discuss if Uighur camps are, or aren't false or nothing)

    Likely more political than anything else, to avoid a repeat of the criticisms of the SARS response.

    very interesting from propaganda perspective is the fifth paragraph of
    Vigilance needed on Wuhan pneumonia https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1177480.shtml
    :

    "Western media have been covering the case more timely than those in China. The capability to strengthen timely information of major events in their early stages needs to be built in all parts of China. Doing so would help increase the public's confidence in the face of complexities."

    If it is just as deadly as SARS it is plenty enough to worry already.

    Wuhan virus kills fourth patient, infects hospital staff amid fear of ‘super-spreader’
    • Priority now to stop emergence of ‘super-spreader’, with one carrier already infecting more than a dozen medical staff, specialist says
    • Authorities in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus outbreak, report a fourth death and 15 infections among hospital staff
    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/soc...us-likely-human-transmission-stage-infections


    by the way I've never figured how doctors protect themselves while they need to carefully check a patient at the same time if you know what I'm saying, well personally I admire doctors
