Are you concerned about the coronavirus outbreak globally? Are you worried that it will reach South Africa and start to spread?

No.
Doesn't seem all that deadly even if it did arrive here.

If it gets traction and infects millions of people, then there will be a real concern, for now it seems to only purge China, which would possibly leave some free real estate

Not really. As long as you have decent immune system you should be fine.

Hope I don't have to eat my words in a few months' time.

As long as it's natural I think we can learn to "live with it", I'm worried it might be man made though.

It might have a low fatality rate but I am one fatality away from being dead so yes, I am concerned.
You don't even have to die for this to be an issue, if 40% of the world population dies in the next few months and then the virus goes away, there will be such lasting issues the world as we know it will still change significantly

No since I don't travel much. There's also this if it does get here:
You know its the other people travelling that are the problem? They bring it here - it spreads - you can't leave your house without potentially being exposed.

My feet didn't hit the ground when I ran out of China Mall on Saturday. Suddenly remembered where this started.
