Don't Panic

What does that even mean?

There are no signs of panic in the US. If and when conditions merit panic, it will be too late to panic. Assuming of course we can accurately define "panic".

Harvard Professor Says Global Pandemic Is Likely

Here are a few pertinent snips from the Wall Street Journal Report How Many People Might One Person With Coronavirus Infect?

“Right now, coronavirus is much more of a concern than SARS ever was,” said Steven Riley, a professor of infectious-disease dynamics at Imperial College, referring to the global outbreak in 2003, when 8,096 people got sick and 774 died. “The main reason is our estimate of the number of people who are currently infectious is higher than the maximum who were ever infectious at one time with SARS.”

“Where we’ll look next is Hong Kong and Singapore,” Dr. Riley said. “We may see a growth phase there next,” although, he added, researchers haven’t yet seen exponential growth outside of mainland China.

“I think it is likely we’ll see a global pandemic,” said Marc Lipsitch, a professor of epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. “If a pandemic happens, 40% to 70% of people world-wide are likely to be infected in the coming year. What proportion of those will be symptomatic, I can’t give a good number.”

The New York Times Reports Beijing Sets Stringent New Quarantine Rules

The mandate came as the national Chinese government disclosed that hundreds of medical workers who had been helping combat the coronavirus outbreak had become infected and at least six had died.

Beijing demands that all who enter its territory isolate themselves for 14 days, or “be held accountable according to law.”

For the first time on Friday, China disclosed figures that drove home the risks faced by those on the front line: 1,716 medical workers have contracted the virus and six of them have died. Of those people, 1,502 were in Hubei Province, with 1,102 of them in Wuhan, the provincial capital and the center of the outbreak.
