I read yesterday that there are three possible cases in my state. 

Since it is contagious before symptoms show, definitely it is more widespread than is known. 

"Adapting" is likely a better word than "mutating" to characterize than Wuhan nCoV is now more easily spread pneumonically.

@starlight ?  ls this correct?

Mutations is one of the means of adaptation.

This is a Live Radar image of all the flights currently in the air around China and it's neighbours.

It looks to me like the active spread of this virus and the morphing results will be something we haven't witnessed in a generation.

Central and Eastern Europe has 'blood pudding'.

I never saw such a thing and I live in Central Europe and part of my family is from Eastern Europe but I know some Tlačenka (in one version is added blood) and also Prejt (also a version with added blood - that is named in English a ,,Blood Sausage"), both is haram, so I don't eat it.

Also it may be worth suspending the 5 second rule:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five-second_rule

Five seconds rule is something very known about the Whites (Europeans) and I heard a lot people doing it that we the Roma (Gypsies) called the Europeans ritually unclean, as we don't eat anything what fell on floor, as we see it ritually unclean and I think that other people from South Asia have that view too, simply Whites often do weird things.

But to be honest, I don't know if the Arabs or Persians see five second rule also as ritually unclean thing, or at least as cultural taboo.

Probably. l had a taste when l was real little and it was smooth-and-yucky. l didn't like it at all. This at some fair or such thing.

The media are just trying to build up ratings and other people are looking to make some money. Be sensible but don't fall for the sensationalism. Look at recent history. They always exaggerate these things and it turns out to be mostly be overblown nonsense in the end. Don't automatically believe or disbelieve - use your own commonsense.

Also does anyone think you might have some trolls in this chat? I've noticed that some commenting seem to be doing so to induce panic and drama rather than to contribute to conversation. That or they've worked themselves up into a panic and wish others to join in? Maybe I'm too cynical.  Be well. Love and best wishes to all.

Chinese hospitals are flooded "with thousands of patients" and, in NHK's words, "the situation is increasingly dire."

Shanghai Stock exchange is closed until next week. Seoul is down 3+%.

The only thing leading Amerikan nutworks news is Kobe.

NHK- virus now in 17 countries.

These government officials are covering up the real story of what is actually happening. The death rate of people in Wuhan are increasing, thousands of people are infected. There is even speculation that one patient escaped quarantine.

Do you have a source/sources? 

None of what you claim would be surprising, but if it's just speculation it isn't useful.

Unfortunately I can’t bring the source. It was on one of those snapchat stories.

I called it speculation because they stated that it is some kind of rumour. And Allah knows best

We've got science! which is complete, all encompassing and all knowing. Why do people worry? Just pump some stem cells into the infected or clone the dead ones back to life. Instead of fearing it, just sign up for immigration to mars. If nothing else, SPEND! Take a halal trip to Vegas. Buy that 100k usd electric car, it will help you feel better. Buy the latest iphone. Install the latest windows. Have some cheese burgers and some halal non-alcoholic beer and lots of candies. Bash Iran some more as you go away.

Predictions were made from people(don’t remeber the job they have) but they mentionned this:

Best case scenario: 90% containment of the virus - 59 000 infected  1500 dead at peak time in 3 months.

Worst case scenario: 50% containment of virus - 5 million infected 100 000 dead peak time in 3 months.

it seems it will likely be in between.

 

Influenza is still much worse then this and so is malaria.

l believe it was on BBC tonight that reported that the initial mortality rate for nCoV is 3% while the normal flu season it is 2%.

SARS 10% and MERS 35%

Similar death rates but the flu killed much more in its history as of now.
