Agree with you, and for anyone paying attention this was all inevitable. But I think thereís value in posting these ďmilestonesĒ, it gets more and more people to wake up. Visiting NYU now and havenít seen a mask all day. Not visitors or staff.
Masks are only for those already infected with the virus to prevent it from spreading to others. Read the facts.

Except the fact that the incubation period is very long and will spread disease even without being sick. No one knows they have the virus until they develop symptoms and get tested, and by then it's way too late. Not to mention that the sick people don't have any masks because the CDC told them not to buy any.

Who goes to osher ad twice on an 8 day trip to Israel
Anyways, this is so vague, will anyone actually self quarantine because of this?

Possibly someone who has a daughter in seminary and is stocking them up with food?

@Dan IMHO this needs to go on DDMS ASAP...now it doesnít matter if people are only transiting because the Israeli government decided to ban people from these places, Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss, etc. are just cancelling all flights to Israel.

I canít imagine the the thousands of Americans and Europeans this will affect.

No idea, Iíd call the airline you are flying first and then the one whose points you used.  My husband is literally on a LH flight from FRA-TLV this minute and BH I have his return booked on British and they are still flying (for now) but if I had booked him a RT on Lufthansa his return would already be cancelled.  :-[

My HS son is also supposed to fly home for Pesach on British but on the return on AA and El Al (via Paris) so Iím just waiting and watching everything. As of now the direct US flights are fine and Turkish, TAP and Iberia seem ok as transit points and possible options. Also even Lufthansa is for now scheduled to resume service on 3/28. If he canít come home, heíll be 3weeks with the dorm closed and unable to go home, although itís looking like schools may close very soon in Israel anyway so maybe better to just bring him home early...for now just waiting and watching.

A few tidbits  -Italy has the world 2nd oldest population after Japan.

So. Korea as of 3.4.2020 had tested 130K people had 5,300 cases and 32 deaths   -  With a mortality rate of .06% 

The Diamond Princess has a mortality rate of  .08%

The other end of the spectrum is China, Iran and Italy at 3~3. 8% mortality rate.  The majority of deaths in Italy have been those 60+ years old, the same with the US.

Apparently there are two strains of the Covid19 - based on the progression in  Italy, South Korea and Iran - we will either see a huge uptick in cases and perhaps deaths in the US and other parts of the world.

On Thursday, Chinese media The Paper reported that a man in Wuhan who had recovered from Covid-19 and tested negative for the virus died less than a week later from the infection. The report was later removed from the internet.

Very interesting, thank you for posting. I think the age and demographic aspect of this virus are so huge (and unusual compared to respiratory viruses) and they donít seem to be covered by the media in the context of all these deaths.
