amrim why is this stuff considered appropriate to this site.
It's not ,

Deleted a huge amount of content , stay on topic , away from partisan political statements.

A few of you are repeat offenders , going forward you will be singled out and sanctions will follow.

There are vaccines actually, but didn't get into trials and commercialized coz the things were long gone already.
Source?

wiki says:
1.“As of 2020, there is no cure or protective vaccine for SARS that has been shown to be both safe and effective in humans”
2. “As of 2020 there is no specific vaccine or treatment for the disease (MERS)”

2) Orders are delayed. If you can't wait, contact sales to cancel.
3) We are really sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your support,

9 family members ate food cooked at the table in a pot of hot broth, all infected.

There are now 130 confirmed cases of coronavirus on the Diamond Princess. What a scary place to be.
When did the Diamond Princess initially set sail? As a self-contained petri dish of the Coronavirus, this would give some indication of how contagious the virus is and how long it takes for symptoms to start occurring.

14 days is the usual quarantine period, so that's probably how long it will take for symptoms to show. I'm afraid as new cases are reported the quarantine period extends for the remaining passengers and crew. Those aboard report anxiety from seeing the stricken taken off in ambulances.

About a hundred residents were just evacuated and isolated minutes ago in HK midnight, as there are now 2 cases, the same room at different floors

suspecting drainage pipes that carries sewage as a possible path for not being gas tight

That's true. But I'm wondering when the Diamond Princess set sail.

Embarked from Yokohama, January, 20, per Princess Cruises. Members of the crew are appealing to the Indian government to get them off.

So last I heard, there was speculation a single patient zero. If that is true in just under three weeks, it has spread to 130 people. Now we have some useful data on understanding what can happen in three weeks in a crowded urban population where a single coronavirus carrier might have a lot of contact with people. Doesn't look too good.
