    You know what's funny

    I am about to start my Medical Year 3 and I will be posted at Johor Hospital which is in southern part of Malaysia in 2 weeks time.
    Johor Hospital is right next door to Singapore.
    Singapore has gotten its first confirmed case of Coronavirus today.

    :grinning:


    oh god oh fuck the massive influx of patients coming in with the same thing.
    Merged:
    Older patients with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, post-surgery complications
    Patients with weakened immune systems
    Children

    What exactly is a coronavirus anyway? Or do we not know what it is yet? Or is it something new?

    normally I would say something along the lines of "big deal over nothing" and slate it to be of no concern within 2 weeks but china is such a densely populated country that I see this as having potential to become a real issue

    no plague-inc end of the world style shit by any means but certainly something to cause significant events to develop

    Coronaviruses cause diseases in mammals and birds that include diarrhea in cows and pigs, and upper respiratory disease in chickens. In humans, the virus causes rare but potentially lethal respiratory infections, although these are often mild. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that are approved for prevention or treatment. Coronaviruses belong to the subfamily Coronavirinae in the family Coronaviridae, in the order Nidovirales.[1][2] Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and with a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genomic size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 26 to 32 kilobases, the largest for an RNA virus.

    The name "coronavirus" is derived from the Latin corona and the Greek "κορώνη" (korṓnē, “garland, wreath”), meaning crown or halo. This refers to the characteristic appearance of virions (the infective form of the virus) by electron microscopy, which have a fringe of large, bulbous surface projections creating an image reminiscent of a royal crown or of the solar corona. This morphology is created by the viral spike (S) peplomers, which are proteins that populate the surface of the virus and determine host tropism.

    Proteins that contribute to the overall structure of all coronaviruses are the spike (S), envelope (E), membrane (M) and nucleocapsid (N). In the specific case of the SARS coronavirus (see below), a defined receptor-binding domain on S mediates the attachment of the virus to its cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2).[3] Some coronaviruses (specifically the members of Betacoronavirus subgroup A) also have a shorter spike-like protein called hemagglutinin esterase (HE).[1]


    tl;dr not new, basically SARS

    Starting in China? Usually, Saudi Arabia is a better starting location, hopefully, they don't get Greenland. They also did the mistake of evolving to high lethality first, must be a newbie player.
