Most modern health systems, and the US is included in that, are capable of limiting the spread of CV-19 now that they know generally what to expect. As in Wuhan you might get a pocket of infection before authorities go full draconian crackdown but China as a whole is not going to suffer a 2% population hit and neither will any developed country. I believe the great risk remains in less capable systems and in particular, those with governments that will be slow to act for political rather than scientific reasons.

The economic effect however of reduced global travel and almost certain panic reactions might well hit global GDP up to a full 1% decline and as in all things, the poorer ends of the supply chain will suffer disproportionately.

Trump is putting Pence in charge of the US Cronaviruse response. We are doomed.

Yeah, you hope, man. The U.S. is a system where people go to work instead of the clinic when they feel bad. If this has a month incubation period without symptoms... good luck.

I’ll take the two percent chance of kicking it. At least I won’t have to live through god knows how many more years of the death of democracy. It tickles me, however, how much these diseases make Europe and the U.S. piss their collective pants. Anyone remember Zica Virus? :D

Fucking hell, Mac - you really are a counsel of despair, aren't you.
I'd hate to be in a fucking crisis with you.
I suppose you also died of bird flu, swine flu, SARS, ebola, and zica as well, eh?
Get a fucking grip.
Have a chat with your doctor about upping your meds. You need it.

If Corona virus takes off in Africa or the less developed parts of Asia then all bets are off, but whilst it's in modernised nations (& that includes China) with decent public health then it is controllable. Vaccine is around 12-18 months away according to CDC. Until then it's a matter of being cautious & not mucking around with potential exposures. And FWIW, respiratory illness is something that I do deal with every day, so there's a fair chance I'll be seeing it before anyone else around here.
