Kids of the 70s will also have been exposed to more unusual wildlife in their diets. That should help as well Wink

"Interesting" advice from the Indian Government

I guess the best you can say about it is that if there is no treatment available then this advice will at least not make the problem any worse.

The airline I'm currently consulting for is a client of BlueDot in determining risk in flying to infected areas, we had a corporate wide briefing yesterday on route embargos and precautions from them: https://www.wired.com/story/ai-epidemiologist-wuhan-public-health-warnings/

That article links to the fascinating story of Google Flu Trends. I was teaching an AI course both when it had its triumph and its disaster, and it spiced it up a bit.

A bit of conventional epidemiology: how intense surveillance could make a big difference.

so if the virus does not show symptoms until after 10 to 14 days is it easy to test for the virus in those incubation days?

I guess that shows that any sort of temperture check is useless in the early days
