Do u think there will be an outbreak in Singapore, said one of the news anchor?
How would he know. Viruses are not like human where u can see them or stop them from doing harm.

Chinese New Year-with dozens of millions of Chinese traveling all over the world, perfect way to spread the virus on the entire planet.

I’m frustrated that the British government hasn’t taken any immediate action to prevent this outbreak from reaching the UK!!

Infected people more then tripled in just a few hours and spreads to 5 countries outside of china. Reminds me of the movie contagion already On a serious note i worry for 3rd world countries that usually have a very low awareness of pandemics, if the wuhan virus spreads worldwide It may be an actual disaster for them.

This virus can get in through the eyes. Tell me that's natural. This doctor is downplaying it just like every other political hack who goes on tv.

Why not just suspend all air travel and all travel from the infected countries. Until there is a way to stop the virus. Also we need to educate the public for those who are not aware.

Edit: yes i know it looks like i'm being serious but this comment was actually supposed to be a joke, because of some replies i have to edit this so as to not waste any of your time thank you
