Convenience of this virus now to ‘remove’ certain people would be very enticing to some.

The head of the Chinese hospital at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak has become one of the latest victims — dying Tuesday despite “all-out” attempts to save him, officials confirmed.
As director of Wuchang Hospital, Dr. Liu Zhiming led the fight to try to contain COVID-19, dedicating the hospital to treating the thousands of patients arriving every day.
It ultimately cost him his life, with Wuhan’s health bureau confirming that he died at 10:54 a.m. Tuesday. He was 51.
Liu is at least the seventh health worker to die of the COVID-19 disease among the more than 1,700 doctors and nurses who have become sick.
