Vox: “We are at a turning point” — the Wuhan virus outbreak is looking more like a pandemic

From Vox:

this outbreak might be much larger than it looks now, said Sylvie Briand, the director of infectious hazard management at the WHO, in a media briefing Friday.“We are wondering about the potential for more cases to be exported in the coming days. We want all countries to be aware of this and to put in place detailed measures to pick up these cases as early as possible.”

Osterholm pointed out that the detection of five deaths likely means there are hundreds of more cases since the current estimated Covid-19 case fatality rate is only 2 percent.
