    “It’s really a fear based on media and this being something new,” Dr. Jennifer Lighter, hospital epidemiologist at NYU Langone Health, said of the new coronavirus.

    Exactly.

    Can speak a bit more to this, though some of the contents in this thread are wild.

    Was in Wuhan about a week before the lockdown, made it out to Tokyo in time and healthily.

    - The numbers definitely aren't right, but it seems like less of a case of negative intent (i.e. there's a cover up going on) and more of a case of all of the hospitals are so overloaded that there's just not enough staff to handle it all, let alone keep track of the numbers. A colleague that works at the local office who stayed behind and is in lock down now said that a lot of people have taken to self quarantining when they can't get to the hospital (civilian driving is banned in the city too) but there is still a supply of food and essentials coming into the city, though many supermarket shelves are bare as people rush in to buy as much as possible.

    - While the lethal rate isn't high based on the government statistics, already it has started mutating and the fact that it spreads so quickly is what has so many concerned.

    - The hospitals that they built are just for show; *** they live streamed the construction process with 30 diggers on YouTube when 2 bulldozers could have done the work. Don't take them seriously, they're more like army medical camps where they can lock up the sick. A video of one of the builders going around showing how it was more like a prison surfaced on twitter. Even if they can build space for 1000 patients, it's not going to make much of a difference in a city of 11 million (5 million left for spring festival and probably won't come back for a while).

    - Everyone is worried, but many have just taken up staying indoors and playing majiang to pass the time.

    - Bat soup isn't a common thing and most people are sophisticated/modern enough to not eat dangerous wild animals; however there are a few people who do. Unfortunately a few doesn't mean the same thing in China as a few people out of 1.4bn could literally be the population of NZ + Aus + UK. The government has taken to almost all out banning dangerous animal consumption but that's something very difficult to police when it comes to Chinese politics. I imagine though, considering how deep health and family issues are in Chinese culture, that people will definitely restrain themselves from now on.

    - There are rumors and videos leaking out over social media where healthy people are randomly being taken away too for seemingly no reason; I wouldn't put it past the CCP to use this as a time to also politically purge those who they don't like. No one is supposed to post any information about it on social media and if you do you're getting at best a knock from the police who will tell you to delete it and post an apology or at worst being taken down and locked up, or placed in a torture chair for forced confessions. Terrible, but that's Chinese politics; hopefully one day they will enjoy the same freedoms we do.

    Just praying for the best, and hoping it all turns out ok.
