QuoteWith a new coronavirus sickening thousands across China, researchers who specialize in tracking the spread of infectious disease are modeling its movements. They're asking just how widespread the illness could become, now that cases have been confirmed in 17 other countries.

"We've already lost control of it in China," says Michael Osterholm, PhD, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

He says the quarantines in major Chinese cities have probably had limited impact.

"The idea that we could create this seal around China is just totally unrealistic," he says. "I think at that point, you have to assume we're going to see widespread transmission around the world."

Likewise, Scott Gottlieb, MD, former commissioner of the FDA, said in an op-ed for CNBC that "global spread appears inevitable."

My brother who is in the medicine field says we should be more worried about this years influenza.  He said it has been more deadly than usual on people with weak immune systems.  However, the scary thing with me for the coronavirus is the 10 day incubation period for the virus.  If you are relatively healthy I wouldn't be too worried.  I'm expecting doctors to have a vaccine soon and this will be like the Ebola and bird flu scares.
