That's what you get for letting your state be a conduit for the Chicoms.

I understand it's not 100% lethal

Re: Coronavirus


Only 6 reported deaths as of yesterday. Seems like it's going to be a nasty bug but that's about it. SARS was the lethal one where it killed 10% or so of the people it infected. This one seems to be at less than 2% which still isnt good, but not Ebola-esque.

The scariest part about this one is the jump from animals to humans. That's just what I've read on it in the past few days. It's already spread to a bunch of countries. As soon as it any airborne breaks original containment, the stuff will be everywhere as usual. Too much movement and one of these days we are bound for a real Spanish flu type bug but this one doesnt seem to be it.

Re: Coronavirus


The jump from animal to human is bad. But that it mutated and was able to jump from human to human makes it even worse.

They say the more people that get it the weaker it gets because people's immune system will eventually stop it.

Re: Coronavirus


It means the laboratories that play with viruses needs better isolation.

It means that when they make bat soup they should make sure the bats aren't infectious.

Re: Coronavirus


Really depends on the incubation time. If it's hours or a day or two you can stop it pretty quick. But if it takes one or two weeks for symptoms to show it can get pretty far undetected.

Saw a show (fake) that the govt designed a virus that took a week and a half for symptoms to show. They had a monkey escape and at the end of the show they were going to nuke a whole town because TPTB wanted their viral weapon. But they found the monkey and made the vaccine. The army people were pissed.

The movie was Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman I believe...

Wonder why they called it the Coronavirus?



Why not the Bud virus since it's budding?

Re: Coronavirus


Doom and gloom.

https://www.zerohedge.com/health/tim...ke-coronavirus

Says it has that magic 1-2 week incubation time. These people in the US that have contracted it have been walking around, talking, touching and leaving their DNA everywhere before symptoms started to show. It could get real fast.

Re: Coronavirus


Health experts issued an ominous warning about a coronavirus pandemic 3 months ago. Their simulation showed it could kill 65 million people.

And magically it became true. This sounds a lot like those simulations that the govt does and while they are in the middle of them the real thing happens. Ya ya ya, conspiracy theorist, tin foil hat wearer. I know what you're thinking.

But there are many very rich people that say the Earth's population of humans needs to be culled down to 500 million across the entire planet.
