I'm following the news a little bit on this outbreak that is spreading in China.  This morning's news reports three Chinese nationals with flu-like symptoms quarantined in Boracay as a precaution.  I'm SO glad to read that, but wondering if the govt. will truly take some further protective measures such as a Chinese travel ban.  In other words, treat it with the same seriousness they did the Swine Flu outbreak.

It's a type of SARS virus if I understand correctly Marvin. Hope it's quickly contained.

Up to 218 cases now, and 4 of those seem to be in Japan, Thailand, and South Korea according to SCMP.  The World Health Organization has an emergency meeting this week about it.

If the Govt. here were to impose a travel ban on Japan, Thailand and SK as well as China they may as well close the place down from a tourism perspective.

I'm ever the optimist.  Probably more Chinese die of food poisoning or smoking than will die of this virus.

Hard hearted I may be, but I am not concerned about the ones who die of this virus.  I am concerned about the ones who live and spread it around the world as they will not stay, home, rest in be, drink plenty of fluids, and take Aspirin.
