The new virus from Wuhan, China has spread to 23 countries with 9,821 confirmed cases and 213 deaths at this moment. As the new virus has skyrocketed pass the total case count of that for SARS which was 8,096 people worldwide.
But what is concerning is that it took eight months for SARS to spread to more than 8,000 people and this new Wuhan coronavirus did it in less than 30 days.
Obviously, this new virus is very contagious, as the pestilence increases. And as new information is discovered about the virus they indicate increased concern.
The virus’ incubation period in people is up to 2 weeks during which they show no symptoms but are still contagious.
So the virus can jump from person-to-person before patients show symptoms, which makes it challenging to control the virus’ spread.
According to a study by Chinese researchers in Hong Kong, one person with the new virus can pass it to three to five others — a statistic called the virus’ R0 value.
And the authors of the study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, said their results suggest the virus has the potential to spread globally, which seems to be realized in the quick spread to so many countries.
The World Health Organization says now the fast-spreading virus is a global health emergency — a rare designation that helps the international agency mobilize financial and political support to help contain the outbreak.
There is currently no vaccine for the virus.
The new contagious and deadly zoonotic virus is said to have jumped from animals to humans at a “wet market” in Wuhan, China, with some reports saying the virus genetically looks like that from Chinese snakes.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that pestilence will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the coming end of this age of grace.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all the things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy, that comes upon the world of disobedience. As the born again Church is not appointed unto wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:10) but instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
