I always new that this day would come. I read about it in the news last year when they was talking about disease x. It was scary because nothing was going on at that time and they were explaining which countries are most prepared to the ones who were least prepared. They made it seem like something was coming but did not know what it was and now we are here. An outbreak no one knows how to fully contain because there are now 34 cases in America and around 70,000 in China.
More people need to be talking about this now because it is increasingly expanding. No one knows what’s to come so it feels like a waiting game. More cases came from the diamond princess cruise ship once they were moved to quarantine. Before getting off the ship, there were only about 10 cases of the virus but now it has tripled. Some would say at least it’s a low number but a low number can increase in any time. China started off with a low number and they are now in the double thousands. I have a feeling this epidemic can turn into a pandemic in no time.
