They do say there is effective treatments that reduce the fatal outcomes of the disease. Similar to pneumonia treatment where they put you on a respirator. But china isnt doing that so it doesn't matter much. Too many infected to try it. Per what was reported on the original outbreak in 2003. Video unrelated to treatment but a good outline of the current outbreak.
One thing I think is fishy is the 2% fatality record being reported. In 2002-2003 it was 10% of all people infected died from the disease.

I have noticed its pretty hard to order parts from alibaba and the like right now.
Here is what the CDC says on receiving packages from China:
Q: Am I at risk for COVID-19 from a package or products shipping from China?
A: There is still a lot that is unknown about the newly emerged COVID-19 and how it spreads. Two other coronaviruses have emerged previously to cause severe illness in people (MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV). The virus that causes COVID-19 is more genetically related to SARS-CoV than MERS-CoV, but both are betacoronaviruses with their origins in bats. While we don’t know for sure that this virus will behave the same way as SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, we can use the information gained from both of these earlier coronaviruses to guide us. In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods. Information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available.
