I have to question whether this report is entirely accurate. What's to say the medical person didn't contract it from something in the environment, or from another positive carrier? Certainly, catching it from a deceased person would be likely, depending on how recently the person had passed. But the virus could still have been around that person, on surfaces and even on equipment. So saying it was contracted from the deceased person seems a bit presumptive.

With all the cases reported in other countries, it seems to me that if it was contagious from a deceased person, it would have already happened elsewhere.

Actually it does not surprise me. I remember people donned PPE and overalls when SARS victims were taken straight from the morgue to the crematorium in most of Asia. The bodies were not turned over to the families.

A body is a surface, it can live on a surface. Not sure how long nasal passages, etc., are moist. I don't quite know when the creeping crud finally dies off after it kills the person. When does it run out of body to invade and then what does it do?? We kind of need a body farm experiment to know.

This remains a really creepy sci fi thriller we are living.

The information we are getting does change which is entirely understandable because as hard as the researchers and everyone else are working there is still a great deal about COVID-19 that is unknown. Some people feel we are being lied to or not given the full picture. Medical professionals are doing the best they can considering their best is based on their textbook knowledge, knowledge from medical publications and journals, their own medical experience and the limited data and information available to them at this time. I recently read that there are several strains of COVID-19, some more severe than others. That makes coming up with definitive answers even more challenging for the medical community. The other important factor to consider is that yes we have to be managed. The top medical authorities along with our president and his advisors are well aware of what could happen if fear, panic and hysteria take hold. As humans we are very predictable in our behaviors.

Like most people I think the Chinese government has a lot of information on COVID-19 and they aren't sharing it even now. That would be typical of the Chinese government mentality. If they had warned the world months ago or shared everything even now that would be seen an admission of blame in their eyes and a loss of face which isn't acceptable to them. I'm aware that some people think that it was spread deliberately and it's part of an agenda. I don't spend my time speculating about that because if it would be true then I'm very confident that none of us have the clearances or are high enough up to know that kind of thing. Fifty-six years later we're still speculating about John F. Kennedy's assassination and forty-five years later what happened to the Teamsters Union boss Jimmy Hoffa. I don't ever expect to know lots of things nor do I expect that in some cases what we're being told is the truth or perhaps the entire truth. That's nothing new and knowing after the fact changes nothing about what is happening at the time for the common man.
