The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, at the time of writing, is poised to become a global epidemic – or be contained. I’m no expert virologist, but it does look to be accumulating mutations which could increase virulence. However, corporate America and the UK seem to have their eyes on the bottom line. Of course, if this does kick off as seems possible (my impression, for what it is worth is that the virus looks to be very highly transmissible and that the Ro may be at the very highest end of estimates), there may well be a significant and regrettable decrease in the customer base.
