Question Anyone Know details about the Dangerous Virus spreading??

Hey everyone,

So, I've been hearing the news that most cities of China have been infected by an extremely dangerous virus and many have been dead by now. Anyone aware, what is it, how did it developed and came to China? it's really confusing how just suddenly a virus spreads and I've heard that it is also found in other areas of the world as well. Is it true?

Less panic - better to this situation. There is no indication that virus is 'extremely dangerous' - mortality rate is less than 3%.

What is 'many'? Currently it is less than 20 people. Is that many or not? SARS mortality rate was 10-40% depending on region and it killed 750 people - 40 times more.

Just follow the daily news for update if concern. No point to panic

For the matter, practise good hygiene and wear a mask if you are unwell in Singapore too.

Just avoid unnecessary travel to China. But if need to, just practise the usual precautions. Come back to SG self quarantine yourself for 2 weeks.
