There are many different strains.  Claims have been made that certain strains can linger on hard surfaces for up to 9 days.  Seems to me shipped packages could be quite the vector.

My wife (RN, MS, DNP educated) has studied pandemics, including the Spanish Flu about a hundred years ago. She predicts a slowing of infections in the next few months. Then a rapid growth in the fall/winter. Mutations will occur and control will be more difficult. Look at the difference in world wide travel in the last 100 years. Staggering growth and speed of travel. We'll need incredible international cooperation. Are you feeling good about our situation?

Active cases are going down as well as death rate. I agree we will see it disappear during spring and summer then make a major comeback in winter.

Looks a lot worse that the regular flu!

What the hell?

Tens of thousands of prisoners in Iran have been released temporarily as the country tries to reduce coronavirus infections, officials say.

More than 54,000 inmates had been let out after testing negative for the virus, Iran's judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said.

Still overhyped.  If you believe the, imho, under reported case numbers in China, the death rate is around 3.4%.  Most of the deaths in Washington are from a nursing home ( think one of the caretakers who died was in their 40's though).  This is not the herd thinning plague.  Viruses like Ebola had a 50% death rate and SARS was around 10%.  Coronavirus has a much easier time infecting and spreading, but the fact is, if you are relatively healthy, you won't have to even go to the hospital. They are reporting that over 80% of the cases are mild and need no medical intervention.  Why isn't that number being reported?  I believe that everyone should be obviously be prepared for the worst case scenario, but we have to be grounded in some facts and the level of paranoia with the Coronavirus is not based in fact with the current numbers from this virus.

I think it's already more widespread than reported.  Think about how many people have minor symptoms and think it's just a cold or flu, as it is that time of the year.  They likely aren't being reported, and a large number of people with those symptoms don't even go to the doctor.

New cases are on the rise: I fear that Iran and India may be underreporting by huge margins

Now you are getting into some things that the coronavirus will impact.  While I do not chalk up 10 people dying (Majority with compromised immune systems) as the herd thinning plague, I will say the economic impacts of the coronavirus will hurt a lot of industries.
Specifically the Tourism industry and entertainment industry.  Also the production issues in China due to plants shutting down will impact products in the US.   The majority of the Pharmaceutical products for example are produced in China.  Will we see shortages in medicine? 

Also, what is up with the web browser distortion with the text WB?  The text is extended way out of boxes.
