Rest in Peace

I guarantee you this, the moment someone dies from the coronavirus in Japan, chaos and panic will set in far beyond masks selling out.

RIP. Presume he could not have been flown out with the others.

Presume he could not have been flown out with the others.

Its also possible he wished to stay with his family, rather than return to Japan. Being in his sixties, I doubt he was working for a Japanese firm in Wuhan.

Rest in Peace.

RIP. Saving foreign nationals? They can not save their first doctor who predict this outbreak, doctor Li Wenliang passed away on Feb 7th.

I also think that this is another reason why the numbers are so low. One part is the Chinese media suppressing the true numbers and others (medical professionals) being told to look the other way at any links to coronavirus or suffer the fate of the poor Chinese doctor who recently passed away.

It was also reported that a child was born with the virus. The mother contracted the coronavirus before she gave birth.

@Numan, don't even look at the previous data about pregnancy during SARS and MERS.....its pretty frightening. Over 50% miscarried, and many women died during childbirth, and there are bunch of other complications. I'm sure the Chinese govt will release the actual numbers soon....

Rest In Peace man.

That’s sad, very sad. Now it’s really starting to hit home for me, you know, really getting personal.

And what a shame that he wasn’t able to fly home with the rest of the Japanese on that charter flight. I really feel for his family right now. Best wishes to them, and to him as well.
