Doctor Mom and the Corona Virus Outbreak

Episode 1669

Doctor Mom joins Leo to talk about how the Mobile World Congress has since been cancelled due to the Covid19 (aka Corona) virus outbreak. Since most mobile phones come out of China, there was widespread fear that there would be a breeding ground to spreading the virus. Doctor Mom says that the Corona virus has been around for years, in one form or another. What's new is how the Chinese government has been relatively stingy with information, and the virus has become deadly with some people. Is it prudent to cancel a trade show? Well, Doctor Mom says convention crud, where everyone comes home with a cold, is proof it was wise to cancel the confab this year.  Better to be prudent.
