It's a four hour flight to China :)

They are getting weird about it here though.

Someone I know from a Chinese university emailed asking how to estimate a time series model for the number of cases. It wasn't a really sophisticated model, more or less a curve fitting exercise.

With cases in HK and Taiwan it will get weirder before it gets better.

I wonder when Buttercup will turn up at BAUT and tell everyone she doesn't get why anyone could let any of those disease-ridden Chinese into the country "in the name of "'diversity'", as she wrote when everyone was freaking out over Ebola ravaging the United States.

Well, it shouldn't matter now, since everyone in the US is already dead from ebola.

A slap on the wrist for OnePlus for pointing it out though. They seem to be a bit of a whizz at maths, I wonder how they would view 0.9999 = 1?

I think you forgot three very important dots after the last 9 :D .
Suffice it to say that tommac was on that forum until he wasn't, because he became too genius for the smug and stupid mainstream gang to bear.

Scottish potential cases all given the all-clear. Looks like Heid and I are going to have to up our game.

The one confirmed German case (someone who met Chinese business partners froh Wuhan outside Wuhan, I think even outside China, and got suspicious when the sneezing started) reported to still be in excellent health.

Big Raushole of some 90 German residents of Wuhan scheduled for Saturday. All will go into a 14 quarantined for 14 days together once in the country, everyone showing symptoms will be brought into Frankfurt University Hospital at once. Bring a few good books, folks, or at least, do your tax returns.

Just had my temperature taken for the second time today.

I was 37.4 the first time, 36.0 the second time.

I think these readings are not very accurate.
