A new report indicates that there could be over 75,000 reports of coronavirus infections in Wuhan, China, and almost 10,000 cases across the entire nation of China.

Meanwhile, in the United States, three major airlines (Delta, American Airlines, and United Airways) have suspended most of US-China flights, and the stock market has taken a major hit.

The CDC is still suggesting individuals follow basic cold and flu guidelines; make sure you wash your hands regularly, do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands, and be cautious of people presenting cold-like symptoms.

Yesterday, the World Health Organization officially declared the coronavirus outbreak as an “international health emergency.”
