    As usual, The Chinese Government are covering up on how serious/widespread this has become. There is currently no vaccine with significant shortage of doctors and supplies to manage it.

    It's a panic fest because China are great at censorship. If there's any take-away from this it is that the Chinese don't give a **** about the rules.

    Officials failed to share information soon enough, disclosing it only to the world on Dec 31, though the mystery disease had been known for weeks, missing a “golden time period” to implement robust emergency measures, he said.

    Apparently people in the infected areas are self medicating like crazy.

    Since they can buy just about every drug known to medical science, and lots that aren't, it must be fairly interesting.

    Whilst I agree this is currently a bit overblown, in no way was SARS a panic fest - a number of my colleagues were hospitalised, admitted to ICU and/or died due to the outbreak in Toronto.

    It was well managed and contained, but for a while there it was ****ing scary.

    Not gonna lie, I'm a needlessly anxious mess when it comes to these things, but teaching at a university with semester one imminent and working in a large open plan office with lots of international students who will be returning from overseas soon has me a bit hahahah welp.

    (Also no grad student or TA seems to ever avoid the office no matter how bad their flu is due to the amount of work pressure we're under, everyone just tries to power through any sickness)

    Given the way things have been going in Aussie lately I wouldn't be surprised if it jumps across to Koalas and wipes them out.
