    So far this is just one case.

    “No details about the case have been released. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planned a Friday afternoon briefing about the case.

    The CDC says it is investigating along with health officials in Indiana.”

    He flew from riyadh, to london, to chicago, and now in indiana. Plenty of potential for passing off the virus to other people.

    Needless to say as an Indiana resident, I sure would like to know where in Indiana this patient is.  I too wonder how many people he came in close enough contact to traveling from Riyadh to Chicago, to spread the infection.  It does sound like CDC has jumped on this quickly.  Something to watch closely.

    Makes me glad we’re nowhere near Ill-iana.

    One of the big reasons I avoid flying now if at all possible…and avoid places where large groups and crowds congregate.

    Personally I avoid flying because of how much of a hassle it has become (and I don’t have much money to spare for activities that require flying to them). And I avoid crowded places because I can’t stand being in crowds, if I have to deal with in for more than a few hours it will start to get on my nerves, and a few days of repeated large crowds can build up to a panic attack. But just just breaking it up so I don’t have to deal with crowds for more than a short time on more than 2 consecutive days and I am fine.

    Don’t have a link but I just saw that they’re investigating 2 cases of MERS in Hong Kong.

    The MERS virus is close to becoming a world wide infection. If this virus mixes with another flu virus which has happen many times in history then we are in trouble.

    If it has made it there  the is H7N9 there with potential to  cross breed  for direct human to human  airborne transmission… definitely a bad thing.  Wonder who is asleep at the switch for stopping spread of this  growing issue.

    With the immediacy of travel these days, it’s almost impossible to put the cork in the bottle.  This case shows how wide the exposure can spread in a matter of 12 hours.  Think how many people from different countries this individual could have exposed on any leg of his trip.  I agree that if it is in Hong Kong and cross breeds with H7N9, we are in for a whole different situation.

    namelus, The cross breeding with any flu virus is a problem, everyone need to buy the masks and gloves now because if it happens everyone will be buying them and you will not find any! I have 60 in stock right now.

    I’m also going to get my hands on some of the disposable NBC suits.  If it’s not this one, I suspect there is a good chance another one is percolating somewhere.
