    I hope this is over by April...

    May is our Tiger Claw Elite Championships and prior to this viral outbreak, we had an opportunity to bring 5 major grandmasters to the U.S., each for the first time for our event. Hopefully that will still be an option, assuming this has subsided significantly. More immediately however is the impact to our Tiger Claw suppliers.

    FEBRUARY 10, 2020 / 5:44 PM / UPDATED 22 MINUTES AGO
    Expert sees coronavirus over by April in China, WHO still alarmed
    David Kirton, Stephanie Nebehay
    5 MIN READ

    GUANGZHOU, China/GENEVA (Reuters) - The coronavirus outbreak in China may be over by April, its senior medical adviser said on Tuesday, but deaths passed 1,000 and the World Health Organization feared a “very grave” global threat.

    As the epidemic squeezed the world’s second-biggest economy, Chinese firms struggled to get back to work after the extended Lunar New Year holiday, hundreds of them saying they would need loans running into billions of dollars to stay afloat.

    Company layoffs were beginning despite assurances by President Xi Jinping that widespread sackings would be avoided, as supply chains for global firms from car manufacturers to smartphone makers ruptured.

    China’s foremost medical adviser on the outbreak, Zhong Nanshan, told Reuters numbers of new cases were falling in parts and forecast the epidemic would peak this month.

    “I hope this outbreak or this event may be over in something like April,” added Zhong, 83, an epidemiologist who won fame for his role in combating an outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome in 2003.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday 1,017 people had died in China where there were 42,708 cases.

    Only 319 cases have been confirmed in 24 other countries and territories outside mainland China, with two deaths: one in Hong Kong and the other in the Philippines.

    World stocks, which had seen rounds of selloffs due to the coronarivus’ impact on China’s economy and ripple effects round the world, kept rising towards record highs on Zhong’s comments.

    WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was less sanguine, however, appealing for the sharing of virus samples and speeding up of research into drugs and vaccines.

    “With 99% of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” he told researchers in Geneva.

    SACKINGS START
    With travel curbs, lockdowns and production suspensions all affecting China’s economy, many were trying to calculate and predict the probable impact.

    JPMorgan analysts downgraded forecasts for Chinese growth this quarter, saying the outbreak had “completely changed the dynamics” of its economy.

    Investment bank Nomura’s analysts said the virus seemed to have had “a devastating impact” on China’s economy in January and February and markets “appear to be significantly underestimating the extent of disruption”.

    Norway’s biggest independent energy consultancy Rystad Energy predicted the outbreak will cut growth in global oil demand by a quarter this year. However, two European Union officials said the impact on the bloc from damage to China’s economy would only be “marginal”.

    Inside China, more than 300 companies are seeking bank loans totalling 57.4 billion yuan ($8.2 billion) to help cope with the disruption, banking sources said.

    Prospective borrowers include food delivery giant Meituan Dianping (3690.HK), smartphone maker Xiaomi Corp (1810.HK) and ride-hailing provider Didi Chuxing Technology Co.

    Chinese firm Xinchao Media said on Monday it had laid off 500 people, or just over a tenth of its workforce, and restaurant chain Xibei said it was worried about how to pay its roughly 20,000 workers.

    Authorities said they would roll out measures to stabilise jobs, in addition to previously announced cuts to interest rates and fiscal stimulus designed to minimise any downturn.

    Hubei, where the flu-like virus emerged from a wildlife market in the provincial capital of Wuhan in December, remains in virtual lockdown, its train stations and airports shut and roads blocked.

    Nevertheless, its health authority reported 2,097 new cases and 103 new deaths on Feb. 10.

    With public anger rising, Hubei’s government dismissed the provincial health commission’s Communist Party boss Zhang Jin and director Liu Yingzi, state media said.

    The virus has caused chaos around Asia and beyond, with many flights suspended and entry restrictions imposed.

    The Diamond Princess cruise ship with 3,700 passengers and crew remained quarantined in Japan’s port of Yokohama, with the number of confirmed cases from the Carnival Corp-owned (CCL.N) vessel at 135.

    Thailand said it had barred passengers from getting off another Carnival Corp ship, Holland America Line’s MS Westerdam, even though no confirmed infections have been found on board.

    “Now we are back in limbo,” passenger Stephen Hansen told Reuters by email.

    Santa Clara County calls for cancellation of large events

    With new coronavirus cases, Santa Clara County calls for cancellation of large events, reducing travel
    A San Jose preschool and Discovery Museum closed this week after employees had exposure to the virus
    By THY VO | tvo@bayareanewsgroup.com and JOHN WOOLFOOLK | Bay Area News Group
    PUBLISHED: March 5, 2020 at 2:08 p.m. | UPDATED: March 6, 2020 at 4:18 a.m.

    As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Santa Clara County reached 20 on Thursday, public health officials called for new measures to prevent the virus from circulating in the community, including cancelling large gatherings like sports games and conventions, and for businesses to suspend non-essential travel.

    At a press conference Thursday afternoon, county officials confirmed six new cases of novel coronavirus, known officially as COVID-19, and said, given the number of cases where the transmission of the disease is unknown, people need to act to slow the spread of the virus throughout the community.

    “Our cases to date indicate to us that the risk of exposure to the virus in our community is increasing,” said county health officer Dr. Sara Cody, adding that the number of cases is expected to increase.

    The guidelines include cancelling events like concerts, sports games, conferences and other large gatherings to minimize close, person-to-person contact, said James Williams, county counsel and director of the county’s Emergency Operations Center.

    Asked to clarify whether the request applies to specific events like San Jose Sharks hockey games, Santa Clara County Emergency Operations Center Director James Williams said it would apply to the NHL team.

    “This would include sharks games, yes,” Williams said. “It’s not just a question of Sharks games. There are many organizations that host large gatherings…we have an obligation to make this apply to everyone.”

    “The bottom line here is people aren’t in spaces where they’re among many, many other people without being able to keep a distance from others.”

    He clarified, however, that it doesn’t apply to Mineta San Jose International Airport.

    “We’re not treating San Jose airport as a large gathering place,” Williams said.

    Employers are also being asked to suspend nonessential employee travel, minimize employees working within arm’s length of one another, and allow employees to work from home and maximize sick leave benefits.

    Cody noted that most of the people who have caught the illness do not become seriously ill. But risk generally increases with age, starting from age 50 and escalating for older adults.

    Anyone with underlying health conditions or severely weakened immune systems also at greater risk. Those individuals should avoid large gatherings, Cody said.

    The recommendations also say people should avoid visiting hospitals, long term care facilities or nursing homes as much as possible, or limit time at such facilities and stand at least six feet away from patients and employees.

    The county is not, however, recommending the closure of schools, noting that “very few children” are affected by the virus.

    “If a staff member is confirmed to have COVID-19, we will consider the event based on the specific facts and circumstances to determine whether that school should close,” said Cody. “We really want children to go along with their lives..the school closure issue is a very large one, with the potential to have tremendous impact, particularly for working parents.”

    On Thursday, a private preschool in San Jose closed for the rest of the week after a teacher tested positive for coronavirus, and the Discovery Museum is also closed after an employee was exposed to a confirmed coronavirus patient.

    Administrators at Action Day Primary Plus announced Thursday that the preschool’s Moorpark location will close for the rest of the week for a “deep cleaning,” after a teacher at the Moorpark school tested positive for coronavirus.

    The teacher has not returned to work since Feb. 26 and is receiving medical care, administrators said. Its nine other schools remain unaffected.

    The Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is also closed for the rest of the week, after an employee was exposed to a confirmed case of coronavirus, according to Cecilia Clark, interim director of marketing for the museum.

    The six additional cases confirmed Thursday include four people who are isolated at home and two people who are hospitalized, according to county officials. Some of those cases include people who had contact with known coronavirus cases, while the transmission of the virus is unknown in others.

    Of the 20 total cases, 4 are travel-related, 9 where people had contact with other known cases, and 7 cases where the patient had no known travel history or close contact with a patient.

    Read the county’s full list of recommendations on the county website.
    Again COVID-19 hits home. The San Jose McEnery Convention Center where where we hold TCEC is right smack in the middle of Santa Clara County. It is California's 6th most populous county.

    Santa Clara County ORDERS cancellation of large events

    It's ramped up from 'calls for' to 'orders'

    More to come soon...

    County of Santa Clara Issues Order to Cancel Mass Gatherings Due to Increasing Rates of COVID-19
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    March 9, 2020

    Contact: County of Santa Clara Emergency Operations Center/Public Health Department 408-808-7863 pio@eoc.sccgov.org

    COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA ISSUES ORDER TO CANCEL MASS GATHERINGS DUE TO INCREASING RATES OF COVID-19
    SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA — In light of significantly increasing rates of COVID-19 in Santa Clara County, the County’s Public Health Department is taking further steps to protect the health of our community.

    Today, the Public Health Department is announcing a mandatory order issued by the Public Health Officer requiring the cancellation of mass gatherings in the County. This order will take effect at 12:00 a.m. on March 11, 2020 and will remain in place for three weeks as more wi​despread testing becomes available and we are able to learn more about the spread of COVID-19. We are also announcing new, stronger guidance for the general public and for many specific groups designed to reduce the spread of the virus in our community.

    “This is a critical moment in the growing outbreak of COVID-19 in Santa Clara County. The strong measures we are taking today are designed to slow the spread of disease,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County Health Officer. “Today’s order and new recommendations will reduce the number of people who develop severe illness and will help prevent our healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed. This is critically important for anyone with healthcare needs, not just those most vulnerable to serious illness from COVID-19.”

    It is important that all individuals, including those who are not at higher risk for severe illness, follow this guidance. Even individuals who are not a higher risk can inadvertently transmit the virus to vulnerable people.

    Earlier Monday, the Public Health Department announced the first death from COVID19 in the county. The person who passed away was an adult woman in her 60s, had been hospitalized for several weeks, and was the third case of COVID-19 reported by the County Public Health Department on February 28, 2020. She was the first person in the County confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 without any known history of international travel or contact with a traveler or infected person, suggesting she contracted COVID-19 in our community.

    Six more cases of COVID-19 were confirmed on Monday in the County of Santa Clara, bringing the countywide total to 43.
