Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus
January 22, 2020: The Chinese government has quarantined the entire city of Wuhan, China. Wuhan is a city of 11,000,000 people located about 400 miles west of Shanghai. According to Chinese health officials, 540 people have become infected and 17 have died.
This does make one wonder. Why quarantine an entire city of 11 million if only 540 have been infected? The military and law enforcement logistics required to block off a city of this size is a significant civil undertaking. This would be the equivalent of closing off New York City. What are Chinese officials not telling the rest of the world?

Coronavirus is an airborne virus spread in a similar way to colds and the flu. The virus attacks the respiratory system causing lung lesions.
Symptoms include: runny nose, headache, cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills and body aches.
It is incredibly contagious and is spread through contact with anything the virus is on as well as infected breath, coughs or sneezes.
In most cases, you won’t know whether you have a coronavirus or a different cold-causing virus, such as rhinovirus.
If coronavirus spreads into the lower respiratory tract, it can cause pneumonia in older people. Other populations include those with heart disease or weakened immune systems.
Currently, there is no vaccine for coronavirus.
