    Isn't it rather difficult to move mail or products if people are quarantined in their homes?

    I would think so, but there is a window of opportunity between the outbreak of Corona Virus and the imposition of quarantine. We can't know which parcels were touched by carriers of the virus and then were moved into the shipping channels, either marine traffic or air traffic.

    I'd prefer to err on the side of caution and not touch mail from China. Products are harder to judge because they may have been sitting in local warehouses from before the outbreak, or they may be freshly received. No way to know for sure.

    A medical type I know who goes by Reasonable Rascal had some similar thoughts. (RR is one of the primary movers/shakers behind the free to download Austere Medicine book that’s at the top (as in first mentioned book) of the list of books I posted not long after I showed up here. ).

    He thinks it’s going to be epidemic but maybe not pandemic. He has some concerns as to whether or not it’s airborne in addition to being droplet borne. Droplets do respond to gravity and drop out. Airborne just hangs where it’s at.

    I did like the “Wash Your Hands” part of the article.

    60 more people are infected on the cruise ship quarantined in Japan. Will it turn into a breeding farm for the virus? Dr Oz reported on Fox this morning that N95 masks are useless, anti-bacterial soaps only breed resistant bacteria (and the coronavirus is a VIRUS, not a bacteria) and, as was just mentioned WASH YOUR HANDS! Plus, keep your hands away from your face. China has finally asked for help. A team from WHO and others are enroute. China is also running out of supplies which seems to confirm what we have all felt... CHINA IS LYING ABOUT THE ACTUAL PATIENT AND DEATH COUNT.

    I'm also seeing that they are sending a team from the CDC over. It must be real bad.

    My gut tells me it is worse than we will ever know if the are asking for help and admitting they are running out of supplies.

    The crematorium rumors may very well be true.

    Spoken like a typical politician. Doctor or not... He is a politician.

    The Massive Spike of 15K Coronavirus Cases in One Day Confirms What We Suspected All Along

    https://www.theorganicprepper.com/spike-of-15k-coronavirus-cases/

    Reason to be Much more cautious when you are out and about. We simply don't know enough about how this disease spreads, except that people are the primary carriers. If you can, avoid going to places where there are crowds. Unfortunately that means places like malls, food markets, etc. It is up to you to adjust your actions to address this problem. Certainly don't expect either government or the medical profession to offer any solutions. It is up to your to establish your own quarantine protocols.
