    BBC world service has been covering this as their top story.

    That ex-Harvard epidemiologists tone is super annoying and alarmist.

    Wish I had seen summits explanation before I went to bed.

    I dreamt there was a bowl of bat soup under my bed
    And the wuhan tang clan was trying to force feed it to me

    Taking a stroll through old graveyards shows how good we've had it over the last 100 years. Winter liked to kill old people and you'd better have a lot of kids because it seems at least half of them would end up in the ground before age 8.

    They're pretty tough to milk. Well, easier than a cougar since you can staple their wings down, but it takes a fkn lot longer.

    Once you collect some, though, I'd suggest making a batch of bat cheese. Aim for toothpick-sized slivers to accompany a little piece of rat loin on a bed of baby arugula.

    I don’t know, if I can’t order it by number it just doesn’t seem authentic enough.

    In the Chinese version of the seafood shanty lobster tank I wonder if you can point to the restaurant ceiling and choose your bat?

    If you can’t then you just take your dollars and Yelp review to the next place that can. Nobody has time for that low rent fried bat shit.

    Why not just throw them into a blender and make a puree?

    I don't know that journal he posted here, but I'd venture that it is peer-reviewed and that any data of results in that particular paper have at least some scientific merit.

    Vitamix or nothing. It can turn rocks into dust and it’d turn bats into virus-slurry in no time.

    I mean, if the USA followed suit it could mean more uncrowded days at the hill.

    Could you imagine Denver being quarantined during a major pow day?

    Tourist: Yes I'm sorry I can't say the letter 'B'

    Bounder: C?

    Tourist: Yes that's right. It's all due to a trauma I suffered when I was a schoolboy. I was attacked by a bat

    Bounder: A cat?

    Tourist: No a bat

    Bounder: Can you say the letter 'K'

    Tourist: Oh yes, Khaki, king, kettle, Kuwait

    Bounder: Why don't you say the letter 'K' instead of the letter 'C'

    Tourist: what you mean.....spell bolour with a K

    Bounder: Yes

    Tourist: Kolour. Oh that's very good, I never thought of that what a silly bunt

    The 2019-nCoV virus has been sequenced and is closely related to the SARS and MERS viruses which all have a distant origin shared with the common cold.

    While bats are the reservoir that allow these viruses to exist, scientists think the 2019-nCoV recently evolved and jumped from bats to an unknown single source intermediary animal before mutating for the jump to humans. Culling the intermediate source could eliminate future outbreaks.


    Also worth noting the R_0 transmissibility estimates, mean ~2.6 interval 1.5-3.5, are about potential transmission. An effective infection control intervention like the one we're seeing along with people themselves adopting risk reducing behaviors can shut this thing down even in the absence of antiviral drugs or vaccines.

    If not, I'll bet there's a bottle of maggi on the table.
