It appears as though the coronavirus is spiraling out of control.
From CNBC, "More than half of China extends shutdown over virus":
The majority of China’s growth hubs have delayed the resumption of business by at least a week as the country tries to control the spread of a new coronavirus that has killed more than 200 people.Drone footage shared by ABC News shows the streets in Wuhan are nearly empty:
A Russian expat shared video from inside of Wuhan amidst the quarantine:
There's at least 24,551 confirmed cases of the coronavirus worldwide and 493 deaths according to the official numbers.
From Bloomberg, "China Is About to Find Out Whether Its Mass Quarantine Worked":
In the last two weeks, China locked down some 50 million people in more than a dozen cities to try and stop the new coronavirus that has sickened thousands in the province of Hubei.The New York Times seems to be fanning the fearmongering flames:
From The New York Times, "$9 Cabbages, Emergency Pork: Coronavirus Tests China on Food":
The virus crisis is testing China’s ability to feed its 1.4 billion people, one of the Communist Party’s proudest achievements. Cooped up at home and fearful that the epidemic could last weeks or even months, families across China are hoarding provisions, making it harder for shops and supermarkets to keep fresh food in stock.

Their newly completed hospital (presumably this is the one in Huoshenshan that was built in just 10 days) looks a lot like a prison:
It is what it is. It sure as hell is a lot better than the picture above.
From USA Today, "Coronavirus: 10 people hospitalized after testing positive on quarantined Princess cruise":
Nearly one dozen passengers on a Diamond Princess Cruise ship quarantined off the coast of Yokohama Port in Japan have tested positive for coronavirus and are being hospitalized.From Bloomberg, "U.S. Readies for Coronavirus Pandemic Some Experts Now See as Likely":
Just a couple of weeks ago, scientists held out hope the new coronavirus could be largely contained within China. Now they know its spread can be minimized at best, and governments are planning for the worst.Adalja told CNBC on Tuesday the U.S. has to assume containment will fail but he believes it's likely to be a "mild pandemic" in America.
Though there's only 11 confirmed cases so far in the U.S., our government is bringing folks in from Wuhan by the planeload.
