2/4 - WUHAN 'DEVIL' VIRUS UPDATE

Housekeeping note: So my readers to not have to scroll all the way thru the 2.5 million tags I have to get to the very bottom where the "Wuhan virus" tag is, I have created the tag "1-Wuhan virus." That brings it to the top of the list.

Timeline of Cases (Deaths):

(Note: Worldwide cases include cases in China, but deaths in parenthesis are deaths outside of China. Keep in mind with China, there are people in China who are insisting that the true number of cases and deaths has been distorted by the Chinese government.)

Information from Johns Hopkins Global Map

China is reporting 171,329 cases under observation

GG note: Remember Eric Feigl-Ding, the epidemiologist who got hammered on Twitter for tweeting this: 4/ we predict the epidemic in Wuhan will be substantially larger by 4 February (191,529 infections; prediction interval, 132,751-273,649), infection will be established in other Chinese cities, and importations to other countries will be more frequent. --- Well it is FEB 4 and China is looking at 171,329 suspicious cases; Feigl-Ding say between 132,751 and 273,649. With MULTIPLE reports, including arrests, in China for talking about the true numbers of cases and deaths, Feigl-Ding looks pretty spot on.

Macau Orders All Casinos To Close For Two Weeks Over Virus Outbreak

Macau is the world’s largest gambling hub, has been struggling with declining annual revenue for the last several years as the regional economy stalled. The shutdown will be another blow to the industry and the longest ever period of closure. The second-longest was when a typhoon in 2018 forced a two-day shutdown. Ho told the territory’s 600,000 residents to quarantine themselves inside their homes and only go outside for essential goods.
