I have seen reports that say the dog may have just had coronavirus on its nose, where the sample was taken, but the dog wasn't actually infected internally.

Two persons test positive for coronavirus in Australia, Taiwan after travel to PH

https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/3/5/Woman-who-traveled-to-Philippines-tests-positive-coronavirus-Australia-.html?fbclid=lwAR2

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 5) —Two people who traveled to the Philippines tested positive for coronavirus disease after returning to Taiwan and Australia.

A man in his 30s went home to northern Taiwan on March 3 after a five-day trip to the Philippines with his friends. The Taiwan Centers for Disease Control reported that the man had diarrhea in the Philippines on March 2 and went to the clinic for dry throat and tiredness after returning to Taiwan.

The man's COVID-19 infection was confirmed by a laboratory test on March 5, Taiwan CDC added. He is Taiwan's 44th confirmed case of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Meanwhile, a woman who traveled from the Philippines tested positive for coronavirus disease in Australia. 

The woman in her 60s returned to the southeastern state of New South Wales from the Philippines on March 3 and is one of six new confirmed COVID-19 cases across the state's capital Sydney, the local government there reported. She boarded Cebu Pacific flight 5J39 from the Philippines, it added.

"Her travel details are being obtained and will be disclosed if she posed a risk to any other passengers on her flight," read a statement posted Wednesday in the NSW government website. 

With the new addition, the total number of COVID-19 cases in NSW has risen to 22, it added. Australia has at least 43 confirmed cases of COVID-19 based on the World Health Organization's tally.

There are no reported cases yet of local transmission in the Philippines. The three confirmed cases recorded were all Chinese nationals who came from Wuhan City in China, the epicenter of the outbreak.

Serious question - do Muslim's actively "lick" parts of the mosque - similar to Catholics touching the saints and Jesus in the Church?

Seems to be significant spreading within "Religious Groups".... thinking of the Muslim guy in Manila too - perhaps they need to close the Mosques and Churches too?

I normally put Peak Prosperity videos in the other topic, but this one has a lot of information that people should be at least looking at. Ignore the financial bit right at the end, and otherwise the video is all about the pandemic.

I don't think they do that in the mosques, but they do kiss and lick surfaces in their shrines. In mosques, they just pack in so closely that anybody who is already infected will infect dozens of other people just by proximity and touching surfaces.

It's about time. People need to take this virus seriously. It has the possibility (or probability) of killing a lot more people than the Spanish Flu.

What exactly do you consider taking it seriously?
