Latest Update, 1/30/20 -Coronavirus: Comparison To Ebola – Still A Lot Of Unknowns (video, right), CNBC

CS Commentary: As of today, 1/31/20, the coronavirus has appeared in at least one other nation, The Philippines, and is present in at least 4 US States: AZ, CA, WA, and IL. Global cases (chart below) may be as high as 10,000+ though confirmed cases are around 8000+ with current globally reported deaths around 212+, though there are conflicting reports. Part of the discrepancy of reported cases is China’s penchant for under-reporting, or in many cases, falsifying numbers. According to at least one report, China has more cases of Coronavirus than it did of SARS. SARS occurred in 2002-03. Any useful vaccine for the virus will not be ready for mass distribution for at least one year. Mortality rate presently estimated between 2% and 3%. SARS mortality rate was 10%. But, flu has a much lower mortality rate of about .5% and kills many more people a year, so control of this virus is mandatory. The US State Dept has now advised against all travel to China. See more below in Movies.

Update, 1/26/20: Contagion, 2011, Trailer (video, left), Warner Bros

CS Commentary (updated, 1/26/20 9 pm, pct): In light of the Coronavirus, we recommend this 2011 Steven Soderbergh film on a global pandemic. Rotten Tomatoes gives it an 84% critic, and a 63% audience rating. The plot thins out some towards the end, but there is much insight on how a virus spreads, the panic it can cause, and how to protect yourself. The very end shows the ‘patient zero’ cause.
