To answer your question: yes, we should be worried, at least to the extent we need to be prepared for a rapid and effective response once the virus migrates outside of China. Scary stuff, really.

If WE don’t know where it comes from… how can we be sure that it may be going away. REALLY, I do not think so. So many people live in China, this is just the tip of what we know and are aware of. Sad that flights to and from China may infect the whole earth with this. Science needs to know that source. And really, how many people in China do not even know why they are dying. This is a nightmare in the happening that could be STOPPED NOW!
