Of course I am a bit cautious, but I also would like to see how things are developping.

So yesterdag I ordered a (budget) light from Banggood.

And this morning I found an email in my inbox that it was shipped.

 

But the parts that were shipped on Jan.13 are still out somewhere. (arrived Feb.20th).

 

The parts I ordered from Kaidomain on Jan.23 are still being processed.

 

And by looking at his status, I guess the Gearbest rep has not yet returned to work.

 

I will keep you updated on any changes.

There’s new evidence that the virus can spread before you show symptoms.

That’s because you’re carrying the virus before your body has fully launched its defense, releasing histamines and other immune responses that cause miserable symptoms of fever and congestion.

That’s a disturbing finding that is propelling U.S. efforts to contain the virus.

It means it is behaving like flu, which can be spread a day before illness.

https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2020/02/01/can-i-get-coronavirus-from-someo...

Quote:
On Saturday, the World Health Organization announced “possible transmission of 2019-nCoV from infected people before they developed symptoms.” There are now 11,953 confirmed cases in 24 nations; of these, 11,821 are in China. There have been 259 deaths.

In the first documented case, scientists reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that a Shanghai businesswoman had no symptoms while on a January trip in Germany. She became sick only on her flight home.

But a German man who had meetings with the woman became sick. And he transmitted the illness to two other Germans.

In a Jan. 24 paper published in the journal Lancet, focusing on one family who came down with pneumonia in Shenzhen, one child with the virus did not show any symptoms.

“Because asymptomatic infection appears possible, controlling the epidemic will also rely on isolating patients, tracing and quarantining contacts as early as possible, educating the public on both food and personal hygiene, and ensuring health care workers comply with infection control,” Dr. Kwok-Yung Yuen from the University of Hong Kong-Shenzhen Hospital, who led the research, said in a statement.

… Harvard’s Marc Lipsitch views with suspicion. Lipsitch thinks it is just a matter of time before the virus spreads widely internationally, which means nations so far only lightly hit should prepare for its eventual arrival in force and what may seem like the worst flu season in modern times. Lipsitch, professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and head of the School’s Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics, talked to the Gazette about recent developments in the outbreak and provided a look ahead.

You do not need to be a Harvard professor to expect that as a possible outcome, follow the news, see the numbers and the easiness of transmission of this particular strain and you can come to that conclusion by yourself.

Still there are up to now surprisingly few cases outside China, the world is doing an effective job delaying the spread, and even if that only means that a pandemic is postponed, winning time gets us a tiny bit closer to an effective vaccine that is expected in a year and a half (that hopefully will be worldwide available).

I’m just concerned about the cruise liners — which seem perfectly set up to spread the virus, not so much among well off passengers in their windowed staterooms with outside decks, but in the windowless shared below deck rooms used by staff and by low-cost cruise passengers.

44 Americans on the cruise ship have been infected, though not all are sick.

Fortunately a lot of bat caves are closed to exploring due to the spread of white nose fungus, perhaps lessening the chance some sick caver will pass the virus to local bat populations.
I wonder what other mammals (and birds?) can host it?

The Chinese government has ordered all the people under quarantine to kill their pets, so I guess they figure dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. are likely carriers of the disease.

Please, stay calm. The virus has not even completed it’s foreplay.
There’s more to come. Does killing pets look like a sign of a well-thought-out strategy?

If you’re not having a healthy lifestile, it’s about the right time to adopt one.
Like: sleep a lot, but not around. Drink a lot: of water. Walk your dog and clean your lungs.

Community officer. acts on grounds of medical prevention.

I could give you some recipes, but the crucial part in those is mostly the killing of the animal.
The things that occur during the dog-eat-festival in Yulin make the community officer look like Florence Nightingale or mother Teresa.

That “community officer” deserves to see his family clubbed to death the same way.

even with the quarantine process on the ship, virus transmission still occurred.

The Japanese health ministry said Monday that the number of cases confirmed aboard the Diamond Princess had reached 454.

“As it turned out, that was very ineffective in preventing spread on the ship,” Fauci told the USA TODAY Editorial Board and reporters Monday. Every hour, another four or five people were being infected….

“The quarantine process failed,” Fauci said. “I’d like to sugarcoat it and try to be diplomatic about it, but it failed. People were getting infected on that ship. Something went awry in the process of the quarantining on that ship. I don’t know what it was, but a lot of people got infected on that ship.”

Passengers were instructed to stay in their suites or cabins during the quarantine. Those in interior cabins with no window or outdoor access were able to go on deck for up to an hour and a half but had to stay at least 3 feet from fellow passengers….

I wondered from the very beginning how anyone could think that people wouldn’t get infected on a ship with sick people.

Whoah! Literal money laundering going on in China now. Emphasis added:

Concerns are mounting about how long the novel coronavirus may survive on surfaces — so much so that China’s central bank has taken measures to deep clean and destroy its cash, which changes hands multiple times a day, in an effort to contain the virus.
It is unknown exactly how long the novel coronavirus can linger on contaminated surfaces and objects with the potential of infecting people, but some researchers are finding clues by studying the elusive behaviors of other coronaviruses.

These human coronaviruses, such as SARS and MERS, have been found to persist on inanimate surfaces — including metal, glass or plastic surfaces — for as long as nine days if that surface had not been disinfected, according to research published earlier this month in The Journal of Hospital Infection. https://www.journalofhospitalinfection.com/article/S0195-6701(20)30046-3/fulltext

Hey, I’ll pay extra for 30-day shipping ….

Over the weekend I heard from a source I have in the scientific community that a lab in the UK has identified a vaccine for the virus but it will take six months for trials to be completed.

It's moments of madness that keep us sane.

Six months is extremely fast. And if it passes the trials, production takes another few months unless they take the gamble producing it parallel to the trials in anticipation of succes.
