UPDATE: Spreads to Tibet and UAE.
The number of known cases rose by a third overnight to nearly 6000 and a shortage of testing kits is stoking fears the number of infections is far higher.

I should correct an error with earlier tweet the 9000+ figure is “suspected” cases which is actually a bit more serious. So Officially: 6003 infected and 132 deaths. 9239 suspected. (8000 infected by SARS 2002/2003) And 109 “cured”.— Stephen McDonell (@StephenMcDonell) January 29, 2020

UPDATE: IMO, it isn’t racism to criticize the Chinese obsession with freshness, aversion to frozen foods, penchant for eating weird foods especially wild animals and particularly unsanitary wet markets which are breeding grounds for viruses. See the video below.
the amount that racism against asians is normalized in society is so fucked up and you can see it with the xenophobic mess that are coronavirus jokes. the deaths of individuals is not a laughing matter, and your blatant racism isn’t funny either.— maia (@mxmtoon) January 29, 2020
i had to deal with people making passing comments about eating dogs and saying “Ching Chong” to me my entire life. now i go onto social media only to see it’s plagued with jokes about avoiding Chinese people with a cough, and barely anyone lifts an eyebrow.— maia (@mxmtoon) January 29, 2020

ALL CULTURES ARE NOT EQUAL.
Generally, I have a positive view of China, but I am under no illusions that Chinese culture is anything like Western culture. It is not even like Islamic culture.
If the Wuhan coronavirus which originated in these filthy wet markets spirals out of control and kills millions of people, I can see China’s global image taking a major hit.
