    You do NOT have a corona virus. If you've been coughing a lot in the last few days, you probably have a bad cold. Even if you're 'surrounded' by Chinese people in California, the Chinese citizens in this country are not infected with corona virus.

    Regardless of the current media hype, corona virus is a very  common upper respiratory infection that's been around for years.  Even if you DID have a corona virus, in a healthy person it usually amounts to nothing no more worse than the flu or a  bad cold. You could have  a corona virus and not know it, and you would think that you had the flu or a cold, and you would go ahead and treat the symptoms with OTC cold and flu medication until the virus ran its course and you  began to feel better.

      People in the U.S. aren't "sealed in their homes" or quarantined if they have a corona virus. Most people who ever contract (or have ever contracted) a corona virus didn't even know they had one, and they never had to see a doctor.

    If he has NOTHING to worry about being surrounded by Chinese, answer this. WHERE did this garbage come from? WHO has died from it the most? WHO has hauled it into the u.s.? WHO that you run into is the MOST likely to be infested with it? WHO that you see do you think is MOST likely to have been to China? THERE`S your sign. CASE CLOSED.

    There are lots of unrelated respiratory illnesses going around.  However, if you should have trouble breathing that's when you should worry and seek out help.

    You should go see a doctor, so he, or she can examine you. Nobody here would know if you have it, or not.

    the chances of you getting it are extremely small.

    you probably are just paranoid and most likely have a minor cold or flu 

    either that or you smoke too many cigarettes 

    there are over 1 billion people in china so even less than 0.1 percent of their population is infected

    Chinese people, like all other people, only carry the virus if they have been in contact with a case. You might as well be afraid of everyone.

    Have it medically checked out for your own sake and others around you!

      Take some OTC cold and flu medication and forget about it.
