The media slowly catches up to 4chan still...

This had pandemic vs epidemic written all over it weeks ago.

Can you imagine an outbreak in San Francisco with all the street shitters?

Using the Communist numbers, which are almost certainly a lie created by a formula, the death toll is greater than Sars. If the number is much higher, which leakers like the 4chan wuhan quarantine worker claim, then the rest of the world is likely underprepared.

There is a reason they quarantined whole cities and it isn't because it's "just the flu".

They didn't build fake hospitals that are actually quarantine camps like the warehouses full of Spanish flu victims back last century.

We have been watching the first deadly pandemic of our time unfold, and it has been just fascinating watching it unfold. Fascination and Horror.

The cruise ship quarantined off japan now has 130 confirmed cases instead of 20.

Singapore is shutting down conventions and preparing for a large outbreak.

And ed help the poor in New Delhi that sleep on sidewalks if gets loose there.

It's interesting, skeptical inquiry versus Communist data...

strange days...

The 4chan hazmat/quarantine leaker made the news in China, since they confirmed they were legit by taking a photo with a written note in one of the pictures.

No idea if the claims they made were legit, but in the absence of concrete evidence from the Communists one has to wonder how much of what he said is true.

China's populations are slaves of central planning to some extent, and they want to get factories back going ASAP.

I foresee a vaccine within two months.
Can't be done - they have to go through animal and human trials, so six months would be pushing it.

Then there's the factor that we still don't have a vaccine for SARS or MERS, despite years of lead time, and this Wuhan chap is a very close relative of SARS, so it might never happen. The other factor with coronaviruses is that they mutate faster than American presidents, so a vaccine could even be counter-productive and lead to something worse entirely.

The best option seems to be antivirals. The Thais swear by them and they do have the highest recovery rate, albeit on very small numbers. China's doing double-blind testing with several on n-2019 CoV patients, so keep an eye on that.

Surely, Captain Trips is upon us. Panic is the best course of action. We are all going to die.

I wish I wasn't being sarcastic. We could use a good cleansing dose of Captain Trips/Andromeda Strain/Ebolaids/Whatever

Not all, but if there is a worldwide pandemic it's likely to kill 5-10% of people over 65 who get it. Lucky none of those here.

I'd vote for reducing the birth rate to start off.

We have vaccines for one:
A SARS vaccine was developed in response to the 2002 outbreak, but was never sold since public health measures got the disease under control before it was ready.

Discover Magazine
and MERS has passed Phase One Trials.

Yet I am poor.

That's encouraging. I'd still be highly surprised if there's a vaccine for n-CoV this year.
________________________________

The best hope for not having a worldwide pandemic of biblical proportions is for the virus to lose virulence, and the results outside China are a little encouraging on that score, with only 3% severe cases against China's 16%, and I think all of the deaths so far contracted it in China, near the epicentre.

Still needs another week - 10 days as it appears to increase in severity after that kind of time frame.

IIRC, Captain Trips was 99% infectious and everybody who got it died.

Now that's what I call a pandemic. :)

Just wait until it hits India the same way it hit China - a country with minimal health infrastructure, a shocking record of using inappropriate drugs, contaminated water, absurdly insanitary conditions and over a billion people to play with. Dumping Covid-19 into India is like tipping a plateful of germs into the original primordial soup.

If ever there were a chance of Captain Trips, India will be where it comes from. Coronaviruses do mutate pretty readily, so it's going to have all the chances it wants.

The CDC is saying China is no longer in containment mode, but in hard mitigation mode.

The US is in containment mode, but we may be in mitigation mode in 'a few weeks'.

Hope you bought your favorite bottled water already before the panic buyers decide to stay at home and be shutins for a few weeks.

The global alarmists are already slavering over the thought of a billion people dead. Think of the carbon footprint reduction!

Don't burn 'em. Bury 'em. Sequester that carbon in the good Earth under gardens and such. :)
