The death of whistleblower doctor Li Wenliang in China highlights the human rights failings in #Coronavirus outbreak. It’s a tragic reminder of how Chinese authorities’ preoccupation with maintaining ‘stability’ drives it to suppress vital info about matters of public interest.

We maybe found the potential 🦠 orgin host of the #Coronavirus – the pangolin. A virus strain isolated from it has 99% March with 2019-nCOV. And it was found previously at the market. https://t.co/wzaVd8nT4Z pic.twitter.com/vmDsjh8Dsk

“Silver lining” (if true) — pangolins are teetering on the edge of extinction due to ‘wild food market’ hunting; taking them off the menu would be really helpful.

I don't mean to make light of the situation the folks on this cruise ship find themselves in. Sress levels there must be very high.
But this is a #2019nCoV transmission study happening in real time. I hope they've flown in some scientists to study it. https://t.co/pk98S9fxy7

And, just a reminder, people in glass houses…
A 4-year-old in Colorado died from flu this week. Days before, his mom reached out to Facebook's biggest anti-vaxx group. Members told her not to take the Tamiflu a doctor had prescribed, but give him oils and elderberries and put potatoes in his socks. https://t.co/wHrt1qY898
