Chinese government has extended its Lunar New Year period and is encouraging larger corporations to allow for extended PTOs for its employees with pay.

Many provinces are "quarantined".

N95 is selling out everywhere (including in the US).

Don't know what ID is, so I am not with whatever agency you were thinking of

We just have a lot of business connections in the few Asian countries through different business sectors for many years.

Trying to share what I can here and these are my trusted sources.

My apologies. ID is Infectious Diseases. I worked in it on-and-off throughout my career in pharma.

Thanks for your updates and explaining where they came from. During the last ebola outbreak I attended the CDC updates and a couple of other updates from physicians that were on the front lines of that outbreak

I'm enjoying reading the information you're providing. Please keep up the good work for our e-community.

Cheers-mk

Overnight. And I have yet to see anything saying "hundreds". Though it no doubt will get there soon.

I am glad someone is enjoying my contributions (whether they are useful to them or not I don't really care).

I did not enjoy my biology and chemistry classes back in the college days

My post was mostly an attempt at gallows humor.

Yes, I've been trained in biowarfare in my previous job.

I forget the exact numbers, but it was something like "one fatality on the battlefield takes out 3-4 people (graves registration, mortuary services, etc.), but one illness takes out something like a dozen (transportation out of the FEBA, doctors, nurses, etc.)".

Additionally, if you work on getting the combatants \ sick instead of dead, you have to reroute your supply chain to accommodate additional medical supplies, medical personal, etc. instead of bombs and bullets.

The problem with bioweapons? They tend to work both ways.
