Unfortunately, there's going to be a lot of that.
There's no cure for dying from pneumonia aside from chance.
Aside from a true vaccine- which is possible in a few years- if you contract this, its all about treating the symptoms and letting your own immune system eventually win (or fail).

What of the talk of anti-virals being effective?

42,500+ infected, 1000+ dead.

Mortality rate slightly above SARS, but hyper-infectious comparatively. This may be like the 1918 "Spanish" flu that killed so many because such a large percentage of the world population got it. This virus will spread globally and to the US this year or next year, it's just too big to stop now. The only practical way to stop it is for it to eventually go through the  global population and survivors (most) will have immunity = virus burns out.

At around 60,000 infected now. With much speculation the real number is higher because China (and others) is under reporting infection totals.

CT Department of Public Health provides updates on Coronavirus guidelines
https://www.wtnh.com/health-2/ct-department-of-public-health-provides-updates-on-coronavirus-guidelines/

The Connecticut Department of Public Health shared new guidance on the Coronavirus to all K-12 schools and local health departments Friday.

According to a release from the DPH, the guidance follows guidelines from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Even though we currently have no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Connecticut and no patients under investigation, this new virus is a cause for concern,” said DPH Commissioner Renée D. Coleman-Mitchell. “We are doing everything we can to communicate new guidance from our federal partners to local schools and health care providers for how to assess and manage risk of anyone possibly been exposed to coronavirus. Though the current risk of coronavirus in our state remains low, we will keep everybody informed every step of the way.”

Also according to the release, the CDC has informed the Connecticut DPH of several Connecticut residents who are not showing any symptoms of virus but who have recently returned from traveling to China and are now in a 14-day period of self-monitoring for signs of coronavirus.

Connecticut recently had two people tested for the Coronavirus – one a Wesleyan student who had traveled in Asia, the other a student from China participating in the Yale Model United Nations program. Both persons tested positive for influenza type A and the cause of their illnesses is most likely the flu. As a precaution, even though neither of these persons had traveled to Hubei Province in China, samples from both persons were sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for coronavirus testing. Both samples tested negative.

The most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) about the outbreak of a new coronavirus in China is available here.

It’s all about buying time right now. Similar to common cold viruses, this doesn’t replicate well in brighter sunlight, higher humidity, and generally summer months. This WILL spread throughout the world next winter, we’re 1-2 years from a vaccine and just trying to contain it until then.

Really remarkable though, this would be the 1918 flu over again if we did not have modern technology, communication, and science to deal with it.

"Next winter"? It's spreading through the world now. Ex head of CDC was saying yesterday that we're going to have thousands of cases explode in the US in the next 2-4 weeks. The idea that humidity and sunshine is going to slow this thing down is a pipe dream.
But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.

The "seasonal" flu and common cold virus do become less virulent in those conditions. Plus, people tend to hunker-down indoors (more contact) and schools are out during summer (at least in America).  It's all about buying time right now until a vaccine can be developed. But note, there is no vaccine for SARS or MERS (very similar viruses). There's no vaccine for the common cold, either.

And again, this isn't as much about mortality- this isn't as deadly as SARS. But the ripple effects- interruptions to infrastructure, on-the-ground civil discourse- that all starts to go to hell once people are afraid, can't get enough food off the shelf, and we all start to basically treat home as a bunker.

Right back to the original post- wash your hands, don't touch your face, avoid hospitals.
This will pop-up in hospitals, assisted living, and prisons first.

Excellent article outlining the two most-probable scenarios for this virus:

Vietnam Quarantines 10,000 Villagers for Coronavirus
https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2020/02/14/vietnam-quarantines-10000-villagers-coronavirus/

The first mass quarantine outside of China for the Wuhan coronavirus was reported in Vietnam on Thursday, with over 10,000 people living in farming communities near Hanoi locked down for 20 days after six virus infections were discovered.

AFP reported on Thursday that six villages in the Son Loi farming region, covering 2,500 acres about 25 miles from Hanoi, have been quarantined and surrounded by security checkpoints:

    Health officials wearing protective suits sprayed disinfectant on vehicles. Police warned people wanting to enter the quarantined area that while they would be allowed in, they would not be able to leave.

    The order comes after the health ministry reported that five people have been infected with the virus. It later announced a sixth case.

    They all originated from a female worker who was sent to Wuhan in central China — where the virus originated — for training.

    The disease then spread to her family and her neighbors, including a three-month-old baby.So far, only the female worker has fully recovered and been discharged from the hospital, according to updates from the ministry, while the others remain in a “stable” condition.

The disease was reportedly spread by celebrations of the Lunar New Year, a holiday known as Tet in Vietnam. Villagers said they have been told to avoid large gatherings for the duration of the crisis. Residents of the area said they are having trouble getting work in the vital construction industry because clients are suddenly reluctant to hire anyone from Son Loi.

Vietnam has reported a total of 16 coronavirus infections to date. Although the Vietnamese government banned air travel to China, the land border has proven difficult to lock down.

Vietnam rejected docking requests from two cruise ships this week due to coronavirus concerns. A local official explained that forbidding cruise passengers to disembark was “just a temporary solution to prevent the intrusion of diseases.”

The captain of one ship, the Norwegian Jade, shot back that Vietnamese port officials have been “unreasonable during this process” and refused to allow his ship to dock despite having no signs of illness aboard and no passengers who had visited China recently.

The Norwegian Jade ultimately headed for Thailand, which is believed to have given it permission to dock at the port of Laem Chabang.

Reuters noted that Vietnam is planning to quarantine hundreds of its own citizens at military camps and temporary facilities along the border as they return from China.

More than anything, I'm curious how this country handles it when it gets here.
Hysteria or "its like having a cold or flu but worse".

If it goes hysterically and locally people want to keep out the infected, shit is going to get real.
We will ALL probably get infected at some point in the next year or two, how this country handles itself as it happens is my biggest worry.

Key Points
Chinese officials on Saturday reported 2,641 new coronavirus cases and 143 additional deaths in the last 24 hours.
Total confirmed cases: more than 66,000
Total deaths: At least 1,523

First coronavirus death confirmed in Europe

An 80-year-old Chinese tourist died of the virus in France, French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said on Saturday. The man was from the Chinese province of Hubei, the center of the outbreak, and arrived in France on Jan. 16. He was hospitalized since Jan. 25.

The man’s daughter also has the virus and was also hospitalized in Paris, but will be discharged soon, the health minister said.

It’s the first death that’s been confirmed in Europe and the fourth from the virus outside of mainland China. France has 11 confirmed cases of the virus.
