What are you guys making of it?

I've been doing a fair amount of reading on it. Seems like it's spread quickly (took two months for SARS to spread to around 500 vs. already Unnamed Corona in less than a month) and can lie dormant for some time (patient in Chicago last visited Wuhan in late Dec. and is only now experiencing symptoms).

I am from Wuhan and I have lots of friends and relatives there. I could tell you this: If you trust the government's stats of 500 infections and 17 deaths, it is no different from buying Chinese stocks merely based on their financial reports. All fake numbers.
The actual number is likely in the 100k range.
Right now even the doctors ran out of masks and gloves and are working unprotected. I don't know how much longer they can last before they are down.
I have 3 relatives infected. One staying at home, and two who spent 6 days going to each hospital to try to get hospitalized. They were all told one thing: We don't have resources for you. Go home. They finally got hospitalized yesterday. Think about it. That's after they are diagnosed positive. They are walking on the streets for 6 days while spreading the virus everywhere, with no hospital taking them in.
There are thousands and thousands of such patients.
There are also dead bodies everywhere in all hospitals. They are dead on the floor and for hours, no one comes to pick the bodies up. When they do get picked up, they are immediately sent to the funeral to be burned, without any diagnose of whether they got infected by this virus or else. Therefore the 17 death is just a joke.

Everything will be “ok” as long as it doesn’t spread to Beijing. Chinese New Year Celebrations continue.

Lol what? How were they diagnosed BEFORE being hospitalized?

Gregmal:
They are apparently building a 1000 bed hospital from scratch in 6 days. I found that to be impressive. Any chance those guys will come work for any of my real estate development ventures?
