Just an update to the no new cases of nCoV during Ramadan. Thus far, reports are inconsistent. I have seen a report from Saudi, stating "3 or 4 cases", a case in Qatar- a person with a travel history and lastly, today 'confirmed 2 cases in Saudi' (however different reports are giving different ages and genders of those 2 confirmed cases). I suspect we will continue to get nonsense since really, the Saudi Kingdom has more to be concerned with than nCoV at this point, given the entire Middle East is falling apart. We won't get any honest information for a while. I don't feel they have a handle on it. On H7N9, I haven't heard anything other than the one Guangdong case. I do know an intern was jailed for blogging about H7N9 in China. (Big Brother is watching you.) There are several H7 strains, most of them of low pathogenicity. Both of these diseases are still on the emerging front of animal to human transmission. I suspect we will hear of more nCoV in a month or so.
