WTF?

In case you don't believe that video, here is a different one.

That appears to be an entire building.

Hong Kong and Macao Suspend Travel From Mainland Cities

Please note Hong Kong and Macao Suspend Travel From Mainland Cities

The Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced at a press conference on Jan.28th that Hong Kong will suspend individual visit scheme involving 49 Chinese mainland cities. Lam said the ban got the approval from the central government and it aims to combat the spread of the coronavirus-related pneumonia.

According to previous data, individual visit scheme accounts about half of mainland travellers visiting Hong Kong. At the same time, Chinese mainland has suspended tour groups to Hong Kong, which accounts about 20%. The ban will significantly reduce mainland visitors, Lam said.

The city also suspends high-speed rail service to the Chinese mainland. Lam also said all cross-border ferry services would be suspended and the number of flights to the Chinese mainland will be halved. Starting from Jan 30, immigration checkpoints at the city’s high-speed rail station and Hung Hom station will be closed. Passenger traffic at Sha Tau Kok, Man Kam To will be suspended.

US Sec of State Consider Travel Ban

Also note: 'Get it right': Pompeo mulls China travel ban over coronavirus outbreak

“Well, look, the State Department constantly evaluates risk to travelers,” Pompeo told reporters on Wednesday during a flight to London. “That includes travel advisories that could encompass a wide range of things, including banning travel. All of those things will constantly be under consideration.”

“It appears that this coronavirus has a long incubation period, and asymptomatic persons may be able to transmit the virus,” Sen. Tom Cotton, an Arkansas Republican who has worked closely with Pompeo for years, wrote in a Tuesday letter to the administration. “Given these dangerous circumstances, a targeted travel ban is warranted to protect Americans until we know more about the virus and the outbreak is under control.”

Be safe.

Don't go to China.

This is truly WFF, but hey, let's believe Chinese officials on the death rate and transmission rate.

Meanwhile a Growing Number Airlines Suspend Flights to China.

If the virus does stop spreading globally, which by the way I actually suspect, it will not be due to the WHO, but citizens and airlines acting responsibly, refusing to take more risks.

Don’t go to Hong Kong either. It’s only a matter of time before that’s locked down

Sister in law went to Hong Kong last Monday to get her daughter and children out.
Wife is going to Jakarta end of next week and I’m having misgivings even letting her go there.

Seems draconian, unless the PRC brass knows more about the real numbers than we do. I'm still not sure how big the virus is but measures like this are ominous.

Been checking out Martenson's updates since the first one was posted here, thanks for pointing those out Mish.

In the US, 34,157 people died of the flu during the 2018-19 season, per the CDC. Doesn't the reaction to 130 deaths we are seeing above seem a little outlandish? The reaction alone makes the numbers very suspect.

No need to exaggerate a bad situation, apparently local officials have resorted to barricading those people who came from Hubei or Wuhan but refuse to go be teste for the virus.

Gladly removed the offending statement. As I was working on the post that second video came in. I changed the title to reflect the fact I was positive.

I am more than a bit tired of people downplaying what is happening and the potential for this to jump and the potential that China is engaged in a mass cover-up already.

This is totally serious shit.

Hope the Chinese do a better job of containing this then they did with pig Ebola.

Number of flu deaths in a typical year? Number infected with the flu in a typical year? Get a grip, people. Just Google those questions for the flu season 2017-2018.

The Rahm Emanuel statement has been taken out of context and distorted. It means if there is gun violence , we shouldn't sit around and wait for people to forget. You use the public awareness to get something done.

The youtube that was linked was wrong in translation. The official notice pasted on the wall in mandarin says:"this unit has people who returned from wuhan home visit. Do not get in contact." The gross hysteria in the west (more civilised ? ) has this wrong and god knows how many more wrong translation, interpretation they have. Whipping themselves up in a frenzy. China is putting up great effort to contain the virus. Barricade also means they have to supply their essential.

Mish, i re read your headline. You are wrong. Even the chinese government or health authority did not say the people inside the apartment are infected and you concluded they are, as seen in your headline. How much lies you people want to tell? Please do the honourable thing.
