UPDATE: ‘It was like a horror movie’: In one Wuhan hospital, long lines, fear and frustration over coronavirus.“One spoke of a fear that sick patients with fevers will infect each other while waiting in long queues, even if they didn’t have the coronavirus when they first arrived at the hospital. Another man said he had seen several people faint while waiting.” Yes, if 90% of people who think they have the coronavirus but actually just have ordinary flu go to the hospital, how many will leave with a new infection? Given that all they can offer is supportive care, and that the hospitals are jammed, it may be safer to stay home.
