The current Wuhan coronavirus health scare is worsening every day, and unfortunately, the virus is moving faster than the bureaucrats in charge of dealing with it. The fight against the coronavirus has been hampered by unreliable Chinese reporting about the disease that has hit China hardest, the slowness of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in acting, and the long period in which the Wuhan coronavirus remains infectious without revealing its deadly symptoms.

As of Wednesday, coronavirus deaths reported in China have topped 1,113 and more than 45,000 people in Asia have become ill from the virus. The vast majority of people stricken with the coronavirus contracted it in China, where the virus first began infecting people in December. CORONAVIRUS VACCINE COULD BE READY IN 18 MONTHS, WHO OFFICIALS SAY: 'WE ARE NOT DEFENSELESS' However, the Chinese government – like other communist regimes – is not exactly known for accurately reporting statistics, especially about its own embarrassments or when nervous local officials fudge the numbers to look good in the capital.

And let’s not forget that this Chinese government is the one that arrested the doctor whistleblower who revealed the coronavirus to the world. Keeping all this in mind tells us the coronavirus epidemic could be worse than it appears. The Chinese are certainly taking harsh measures to limit the spread of the virus, though how effective they are remains to be seen. Chinese leaders made the unprecedented decision Jan. 23 to lock down Wuhan, a city with a population of about 11 million – bigger than New York City.

Unfortunately, the United States did not impose any formal quarantine on people from Wuhan entering our country for 10 crucial days, meaning that potentially thousands of infected people who had been in Wuhan might have entered the U.S. We are still learning more about the rapidly evolving coronavirus, but what we do know is troubling. The deadly virus is highly transmittable, likely through the respiratory system. And treatment often requires lengthy hospital admissions of two weeks or more.

In other words, infected people might have no idea they were infected for two weeks, and so might be going about their normal lives and spreading the virus to others unknowingly before becoming ill. With the Chinese now having imposed a lockdown on a population larger than the entire United States and the coronavirus having spread to over 20 countries, including ours, the CDC’s testing guidelines are far too limited.
