South Korea is new HOT ZONE... (Update: Country on Red Alert -- Total is now 6,767)
[link to twitter.com (secure)]

Cases increased by two thirds within 24 hr. period.


They are now where China says they were on Dec. 31.


In eight weeks they could be in similar chaos.

Daegu's mayor has asked its 2.5 million residents to self-quarantine.


Not good.

100 confirmed cases, with a possible 14 day asymptomatic incubation period, you could postulate that those 100 confirmed cases have infected 14 each, of those how many will have already flown or travelled to other parts of the world.

I genuinely think the the cat is well and truly out of the bag, and with this latest development we are in the infancy of a worldwide pandemic. I cannot see how they can contain this any longer given there are no visible signs of infection for the first 14 days.

Agreed, I think anyone capable of logical thinking can see that for China to close cities, which in turn will adversely impact their standing on the economic world stage, that this is fairly serious.

The knock on effect will be significant, and for South Korea to now be doing the same, there are certainly some very concerned high up's out there.

People panic, so what we are now seeing i believe is the slow release of information as the global population slowly begins to soak up what it happening. By realising information in this manner it helps to control the panic of the masses and affords time for things to be put in place in the background to manage it.

 Quoting: Builder of the Adytum


Yeah, certainly is concerning, Especially the significant jump in cases in such a short space of time. Its a complete cluster fuck to try and begin to map who they have had contact with, where they have been, etc etc.

I also believe that if we considered past events, such as SARS, Swin Flu, Ebola etc, individuals exhibited visible symptoms which enabled us to control the spread of the virus. For instance, in general we avoid standing next to someone if they are sneezing or coughing, it was a form of defence. worryingly we are not given the same heads up this time, so you could be standing right next to someone and not realise they are infected.

Again, I believe the most concerning thing about this virus is that it is Asymptomatic, and that can be up to 14 days.

Well, I think they said a lot of the Chinese were fleeing to Vietnam so it is a matter of time before we hear that they are completely infected.

They should have shut off all air travel into that country when they had the chance. I dont know whats with peoples entitled right to travel when its 2020 and we have internet and skype and all sorts of electronic communications, even E signatures are legal signatures in business contracts. We have drones now that can scope out areas. so no need to check out a place in person.

Firstly, China only had a specific number of test kits which would imply that they are only capable of testing 'X' amount of individuals per day.

Secondly, China has yet to confirm the official origin of the virus, and that has yet to be confirmed anywhere. Until we know that, how do we really know what we are dealing with.

Thirdly, China's economy is being hammered from every angle, so from their perspective they have to do something to try and reduce the adverse impact this is having. Distribute some form of positive information.

Fourthly, they have altered the way that they report cases, for the second time.

Honestly, I am someone caution of DOOM given that over the last ten years of been a visitor on this site, nothing has ever materialised. But for me, for cities to which is unprecedented, i don't believe we are being told the truth.

something stinks about this whole thing, and i think it is very much a case of buying time and trying to mitigate panic.

The nature of Communist China (albeit now in more of a Champagne Socialist model than the ultra-liberal-Mao misery of its past) can make some outsiders believe such a nightmare won't happen in more democratic, more civilized, more sophisticated societies.

South Korea is a step above PRC China. Taiwan is a bit of a step above South Korea----they didn't have the turmoil of the Korean War and people like Kim Jong-il to contend with.

In turn, Japan is a step above those two countries.

Too close for comfort.

I agree

I think Chinese numbers are lower mostly due to the massive quarantine orders. If not, they could have hundreds of millions of cases.
