    I'll be avoiding large public gatherings for the foreseeable future.   But that really has nothing to do with this outbreak that's more of a me thing.

    Nope.  just another non-story like the last few.

    It's no big deal until you or someone you know is affected.   Kind of like lightning.

    Almost 10 years ago when there was the bad flu going around I was an acquaintance to a 30 year old guy who got it.  Put him down for a couple months and at times was touch and go.  He even was in a coma for a while 

    But if you are going to worry about that I don't know how the same person could step into a vehicle.

    The last “breaking news” by media. No big wars around, no storms or hurricanes, ordinary murders and street crime have bothered the people. They need a new “product” to sell themselves as useful, before people understand...

    Changing quick.... maybe it is just another flu but China seems to know more than they are telling us as they are taking it very seriously. I think the reported numbers from China are way lower than reality.
    • China announces another 15 deaths in Hubei province
    • Total number of confirmed cases now 1,000+, 41 dead.
    • China restricts travel for 46+ million people across 16 cities as the death toll surges.
    • AFP reports that the virus has jumped to Europe, with three confirmed cases now in France.
    • Two deaths have been reported outside Wuhan.
    • Some residents displaying symptoms are being turned away from hospitals.
    • Hospitals in Wuhan make urgent pleas for help and supplies.
    • Beijing orders PLA medics to assist in Wuhan treating patients
    • UK and US governments tell citizens to avoid outbreak zones.
    • 63 suspected cases in US, Senator says 3 confirmed, with two reported so far in Illinois and California, and two suspected in Minnesota

    china freaking out.  china also has some experimental laboratories in the area where the outbreak occurred.  hopefully just a coincidence, but the lockdowns might allude to their govt thinking its more than naturally occurring

    either way, we will likely see some kind of mass outbreak in the future

    China is building a 1000 bed hospital to treat patients. In TWO weeks they want it done
    Concrete will barely be cured by then

    That's not nice at all. Especially in your country. Do you feel better now?

    Hospital = mass grave in commie-speak.

    I have this uneasy feeling that China is hiding the actual number of fatalities from their coronovirus. Also ... can we eliminate the possibility that this was a virus-weapon test gone bad?
  • ferris1248ferris1248 Posts: 7,198 Moderator

    It is not clear how lethal the new coronavirus is, or even whether it is as dangerous as the ordinary flu, which kills tens of thousands of people every year in the U.S. alone. 

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is expecting more Americans to be diagnosed with the virus.

    Hospitals are built from existing buildings, not new buildings. You can build a hospital in an airport, shopping mall, military base, etc..

    China sure thinks it is. I have a bad feeling by their reaction that this is way worse than they are revealing.  I think they know the origins of this virus and arent being honest.

    Chinese people also walk around in public with masks on because they are germaphobes, so there is that.
