Well, this sucks.

The virus could potentially infect 1.4 million people by the end of January, according to a statistical extrapolation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Tuesday. That astonishing number came just hours after a report in the New England Journal of Medicine warned that the epidemic might never come fully under control, and that the virus could become endemic in the population, crippling civic life in the affected countries and remaining an ongoing threat to spread elsewhere.
