Disney doesn’t shut down for shit. The fact that they closed a park and are not allowing people who have traveled to the area on their cruise ships, within 2 weeks of departure, at any port, speaks volumes to me.

Disney as a corporation has intel and security that are no joke. They have advised the Feds of threats and other issues multiple times before the government had acted.

I’m not in any way associated with Disney.

I hadn't heard about that-maybe this is a bigger shit show than most of us realize.

The thing here is, when you're not young you know it. When you're not old you know it. But not everyone knows whether their immune system is compromised.

I removed the 2nd half of your quote because it's complete garbage, cupcake.

Hubei also has a population of 58 million, and that was in 2015.

0.0009% of the population dead, and 0.03% infected assuming it's still 58 million people.

The only other death outside of China is in the Phillipines.

Compare to the regular flu with 10-40 million infected per year and 12-60k deaths annually globally.

Every year it's some new endemic scare. H1N1, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Zika, Ebola, hand foot and mouth disease, ect, ect. All blown way, way out of proportion because it's a convenient way to scare the masses to get them to forget about major political situations.

I think you are probably right, but one day it will be true. You know what they say about ignoring history.
And . . . you know the story of the boy who cried wolf.

If the news (in the interest of market share) sells every new flu bug as
OMG!!! RAT-FUCKING EBOLA w/ TURBO-AIDS - Y'ALL GON' DIE!!!
. . . then we won't be alarmed when actual ratfuck-turbo-aids-bola arrives.

You heard they quarantined at least 60 million people, right? They are locked the hell up, roads blocked, transportation shut down. Nobody is at work and they are producing next to no GDP right now. Next week it's SHTF time because they either have to let people go back to work or extend the new year break another week.

Either way, they are doing immense harm to their economy for something that, in your eyes, isn't even as bad as the plain old influenza? More people died from traffic accidents in Wuhan daily than from the nCov, but they had to build two new "hospitals" ASAP because they ran out of beds? None of this adds up!

I don't believe that there is any government anywhere that cares about its people.

The doctor that sounded the initial alarm about the disease and was reprimanded by the government has now died. Things that make you go Hmmmm

then I guess we find out in a week.

but I'm not going to freak the fuck out until millions of people start getting dead.

and then I'm just going to go put on my PPE.

The death rate is multiplying by the day. Since you wrote that reply, the death count went up to 638 as of this reply. I imagine this will only exponentially grow.

It is my belief that the scandal is in the source, not really the seriousness. From what I understand, this lab is one of many around the world. When they culture a disease like this, they send samples to all the other labs. That way if a problem develops, every lab can work on it right away.

In this case, they had it cultured, but did not send samples to the other labs. Recently Australia cultured it and other labs will certainly follow. Once everybody is on the same page, it will probably be solved quickly.

The question is, why did they not follow protocol? One obvious answer is they wanted it for bio-warfare.

Most likely, we let their virus out. We, as in the US. This will disrupt their economic growth like no one's business... right as they were about to top our economy. And right at the heels of our trade war with them. Tinfoil ishness
