  2. Coronaviruses have been with us for a while. SARS in 2002 to 2004 caused many deaths & it was a coronavirus. The current threat is a strain known as Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2),[1][2] formerly known as the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV. (thanks Wikipedia)

  3. I was talking to a Chinese friend yesterday who said that a traditional Chinese medicine product is being very effective with this virus. He was not suggesting it was the “magic bullet” but that it was performing as well as , if not better than any pharmaceutical product. A company in Guangzhou is going 24/7 and not keeping up –the Government is pouring millions into it helping increase production.
