"By all accounts, the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan City, where the virus was first detected, fit that description to a tee, with vendors illegally trading in wild and exotic animals alongside the daily ocean catch.

Wildlife sold at the Huanan “wet” market for human consumption included wolf cubs, civet cats, bats, dogs, pigs, snakes, chickens, donkeys, badgers, bamboo rats, hedgehogs and deer. Wet markets place people and live and dead animals in close contact, making it easy for a virus to jump species."

Well... after 66 days in ICU my sister's fella who was described as being as near to death as can be without dying.... has made it. He's home. Half the fella he was.... and the virus has ravaged his l

Well my sister's fella is making very small steps in the right direction. From being described as as near to death without being dead, he's now sat up, off dialysis and yesterday was breathing on

It's scary stuff.
I've not been to China, but in the 90s I was in Hong Kong about a dozen times for work.

I remember some markets on some streets back then, selling types of meat, and seafood that I couldn't even identify.

Even then, I thought is was weird. (admittedly, maybe just foreign, to me.)

Then I went into a market near China in what was called the New Territiories, and it made the stuff I saw in Hong Kong look positively tame.

I went to a Chinese restaurant in Java that had monkey, monitor lizard, fruit bat, cobra, python and other things on the menu..

I had the cobra and fruit bat. After the meal I also had a shot of Chinese spirits mixed with some type of raw fluid from a snake. The bat was disgusting but it’d probably taste better in a slow cooker.

It was probably not the wisest decision to eat that meal.

Probably not helped by the Chinese authority's immediate reaction of arresting people rather than investigating the outbreak.

Do you think 'Union' is behind all of this?   According to some posters on here they are to blame for everything.

I've had pneumonia and it wiped me out for a month. Fortunately, I contracted it over Christmas so a fortnight of that was a holiday period for the construction industry.

I wasn't fully recovered for about three months and I had some collateral liver damage for about a year (got it from topsoil stripped from a cowfield). Had to go for blood tests every month for six months, till the liver was obviously regaining full effiiciency.

I worry about these Chinese folk who are infected. Most are probably on very low wages with little job security and an overloaded health service.

No, it was good old cowclap wot did for me. You should always stockpile farm topsoil after stripping to compost the grass and the heat generated degrades the pathogens. Unfortunately, it was in the way at the donor site and needed at the receptor site. It had to be analysed over Christmas  to confirm it met contamination limits.

Anyway, it was four years ago.

Its sending my head fully loopy. All logic has gone out of the window and instead of settling for professional and experts statements, one sensationalist post on Twitter sends me sick.

Does anyone else have mad paranoia on this or do I just need to calm down? (Easier said than done)

I'm waiting for there to be a few confirmed cases of this in the US and hear what Trump's take on this is! Is it the Democrats, or will it justify his wall, whatever it is it will be a wowser fully supported by his scientific medical knowledge ?
