I wonder if the 2019 Coronavirus scare will be a bigger story a year from now than the waste-of-time impeachment trial? Right now it's just an epidemic in China with thousands infected and at least 81 dead. Will it become a pandemic like the 1918 Spanish Influenza, or is it just another Bird Flu scare? Five confirmed U.S. cases. All the U.S. infected traveled to Wuhan. No human-to-human transmission within the U.S. yet. But, we here in South Texas are potentially on the frontline of this thing. There are Chinese trying to get into the U.S. illegally through the southern border that are mixed in with the South American migrants. Can you imagine if the virus gets loose in that crowd? This virus looks like it will be tough to get a handle on. It has a long incubation period during which the infected person is symptomless, but infectious. Monitoring people for fevers at the airports is only going to detect people that are symptomatic not the ones carrying the virus but not yet sick.
