    On a long enough timeframe, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

    Sounds like SARS has been doing push-ups, and now it’s going for a run.

    Because this is from China I think the only rational response is to panic, boycott the entire country, and then unquestioningly support any similar viruses that break out in the US.

    Its only a matter of time until something like this happens (particularly given China's markets) but still feel like a really bad time for something like this to happen. Not that there's ever a good time for something like this.

    Could be worse, I suppose.

    Don't worry, Americans; Trump has dismissed concerns, noting "it's just one guy from China".
    Plus, any virus that touches THE CLEANEST AND PUREST AIR IN THE UNIVERSE would die instantly.

    On a more serious note, the UK is to start screening passengers on flights from Wuhan at Heathrow Airport. News said there are three direct flights a week from the city and flights will be diverted to a remote area of Terminal 4 to go through the screening process. However with the virus now in other countries I think they're playing catch-up at this point.
