Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A lot of data has been shared on a daily basis ... hundreds of publications to track the virus to new clusters across the globe SE Asia to US West Coast and Europe to the New England States. Only the bubble of Washington DC was impermeable to scientific facts. White House asleep behind the wheel.

Nowcasting and forecasting the potential domestic and international spread of the 2019-nCoV outbreak originating in Wuhan, China: a modelling study | The Lancet - Jan. 31, 2020 |

Given that 2019-nCoV is no longer contained within Wuhan, other major Chinese cities are probably sustaining localised outbreaks. Large cities overseas with close transport links to China could also become outbreak epicentres, unless substantial public health interventions at both the population and personal levels are implemented immediately. Independent self-sustaining outbreaks in major cities globally could become inevitable because of substantial exportation of presymptomatic cases and in the absence of large-scale public health interventions. Preparedness plans and mitigation interventions should be readied for quick deployment globally.

Bullying by Trump and WH advisors ...

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
