CNN : A tiger at the Bronx Zoo tests positive for coronavirus

 

" Samples from Nadia were taken and tested after the tiger -- and five other tigers and lions at the zoo -- began showing symptoms of respiratory illness, according to the (USDA). No other animals at the zoo are showing symptoms. "

 

Yep, read yesterday that cats can get it....suppose lions an tigers are part of cat family so makes sense.

 

UK prime minister been sent to hospital this evening so fingers crossed he gets better.

A great story to illustrate the fact that this virus is too communicable to be stopped.  It can be slowed, it can be delayed, hospitals might and might not get overloaded, but...  It's all one big shit sandwich and all of mankind has to take a bite.  I'm not being flippant about it, nor any infectious disease.  I'm being realistic and pragmatic.  Focus on your general health, and keep an eye on high risk people.

 

Watch the mortality rate drop and drop as more tests of people with zero symptoms come back positive.

Both in contagiosity and in their reproduction rates SARS-CoV-1 and 2 are very similar. That the spread of the former could be ultimately contained, while the latter did not, is most probably due to an insufficient governmental and medical response in 2019 and 2020 compared to 2003, not a difference in the properties of the respective virus. I'm positive that had the response been as swift and transparent with COVID-19 as it had been with SARS, it could have been contained.

 

Right now the primary focus must lie on making the best out of the hand that one was dealt. But once this crisis is over, there must be a discussion about China's lack of transparency, the inadequate preparation of Western governments (especially with regards to the procurement of protective gear and ventilators, and the lack of enforcement of quarantine on people returning from affected areas) and whether the WHO in its current form must be reformed.
