i think WHO should just stop making comments now if they aren't sure what they're talking about.

That director general should change his name as well...darn hard to say his full name in one breath

the guy who went to 西藏 has been fully recovered. Interestingly, he was already a carrier when he was on the train to 西藏, yet no one on the same train was infected? How could that be possible that 西藏 has zero case  now considering the virus is so contagious?

High attitude with very dry air makes the difference?

Possible if he didnt cough or didn't talk to anyone on the train. Or maybe he was wearing a mask.

Indeed, they should stop doing 2 things.

1. Stop eating wild, exotic reptiles and animals.

2. Stop throwing coins into aircraft engines before take off.

据人民日报客户端消息 2月13日,湖北省新冠肺炎疫情防控指挥部召开新闻发布会,介绍武汉市重症救治进展情况,并回答记者提问。

北京朝阳医院副院长 童朝晖:新冠肺炎患者出现的是严重的呼吸衰竭,与2003年的SARS相比,病情进展得更快,缺氧发展得很明显;此外,这次患者心脏受到的攻击非常厉害,救治起来的难度比以前要大。因此,我们提出要密切观察这类患者的生命体征,比如心率、血压、血氧的变化。

Sorry hard to translate, a lot of technical terms. Loosely is Covid-19 has more serious breathing failure compared to SARS. Illness deteriorated faster. Lack of oxygen sooner. More severe attack on the heart. Must watch vital signs more closely, like heart rate, blood pressure and SP02H.

The thing i didn't understand, they said first diagnosed person. Does it mean, she was already diagnosed, if yes then how the hell she was at hotel or home and not hospital.
Also story became more funny that she came to A&E, so where she suppose to go picnic spot? I am not aware about UK SOP but like what you said if i get sick in other country i will go to A&E, heck i will go to A&E in Singapore also if i feel sick (of-course in normal sickness i go to clinic but lets say if i know the signs then i will go to A&E, not like i want to abuse A&E).
Maybe A&E in UK didn't got memo to screen people before they enter A&E and infect everyone.

That article mean.. There is a protocol to follow if one is suspect to have that virus... What protocol is not mentioned.. But that protocol is surely not go take taxi and just show up at A&E. Proberly this person need to contact emergency hotline like for Singapore is 995 ( London not sure what emergency no to dial). Then wait for ambulance to come.. This is probably to ensure the contact with others is minimised.. 

 

The 1st diagnosed person proberly mean she was the 1st case with that virus in UK.

I am assuming she is living in London either for work, study, etc. I doubt many tourist will be living in that part of london. She apparently called NHS 111 before heading down to the hospital in a Uber. Not sure what the she was told on the phone. By right NHS was supposed to arrange for an ambulance to pick her up or if she has a car, drive her own car there and wait at the ambulance bay for staffs in protective gear to attend to her.

My suspicious is right that this hospital is not adequate enough to handle coronavirus cos she was transferred to St Thomas'...a much better equipped hospital.

She is the 1st case in London. There are already a few cases in the UK, include that guy who went to Grand Hyatt in Singapore and infected a few others at a french ski resort.
