Don't forget that as it went along, we have new info - obese = more risk, diabetes = more risk, male = more risk, over 60 = more risk
Skinny = less risk, under 60 = less risk, female = less risk and Type O blood = less risk. Happily I tick for all of these. Well, not so skinny but not obese by a long chalk.
Some viruses can cause MS, and this one has caused symptoms we could all recognise, like brain fog, fatigue, and has been proven to get in the brain (which is a big deal) and has caused fits in some. Layered on top of MS this would be nasty, and hard to put up with, for sure. I'm not keen on getting it, and only have been out for food, with oodles of gel on my hands and the shopping trolley before I start, and a mask, or to the shop across the road, with a mask and oodles of gel.
There will be a lot of investigation after it's all finished and hopefully new RAPID protocols for prevention, plus protection, will be identified and arranged so they can be deployed in a very short space in time. I have masks to make, and some bought. I shall keep some in storage after it's done and a big bottle of gel.
There will be another one. It's not if, it's when. The Chinese government refuses to get their wild meat sale under control, and there is a risk they will just make it illegal and thus drive it underground which will make it harder to identify the start.
