The first case of an infection with a new coronavirus has been discovered in the United States.

 

A man from Washington state returned home after a trip to Wuhan, China, on Jan. 15, sought medical attention on Jan. 19 and now is in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington.

 

State health officials say his condition is quite good and even referred to him as "healthy." But testing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the 20th confirm that he is infected with the Wuhan coronavirus. The man arrived back in the U.S. prior to the implementation of screening at three domestic airports on Friday.

 

About 300 cases of the virus and six deaths have been reported in China, and health officials there and around the world are ramping up precautions to stem the spread.

 

Chinese authorities are trying to control the flow of people in and out of the eastern city of Wuhan, where a strain of the coronavirus was discovered last month. Wuhan's mayor has asked residents to stay in the city to try to prevent the spread of the virus, which can cause respiratory symptoms such as pneumonia.

Another animal to human virus. Apparently not the squirts from drinking crappy Messican beer.

I've had some Sols.  I like Victoria, Negra Modelo on occasion and Indio.  I don't think Indio is sold in the US yet.  IIRC, Corona is now the #1 imported beer in the US which is pretty pathetic.

Imported beer is a tough market

No, the canned/kegged version of their beer are an excellet example of a “Mexican Lager”...

But Corona, Newcastle, Heineken, Corona, Miller, Sol , and any other brewery that uses clear/green bottles are guilty of poor packaging of their product. I like Sol because their IBU rate is lower, and it’s not so Skunky..... Pacifico, and Bohemia produce Mexico’s best beers

I have seen Sol in clear bottles.  The last time I had Sol it was in cans.

Beer in green and clear bottles is less and less skunky these days because hops products are available which eliminate that for the most part. Enough lime masks it otherwise. Or cans. Anyway, it is what it is.

I like how a lethal disease thread has turned into south-of-the-border refreshment.  :lol:

Well... I’ll say this. Constellation Brands is about to launch a Corona branded hard seltzer. They are the importer. The brand is strong.

Wuhan coronavirus death toll rises to nine with 471 infected says China, sparking fears of wider spread

 

It's believed patient zero ingested an infected bat and that's what crossed the barrier.

When it comes to carrying viruses that can jump to other species — so-called "zoonotic" viruses — bats may be in a class of their own. The flying mammals are reservoirs for more than 60 viruses that can infect humans, and host more viruses per species than even rodents do, new research shows.

Are you sure it's ingestion? Corona viruses often spread through respiratory droplets.
