Quote from: T Hunt on January 22, 2020, 10:08:15 AMWTF are they eating so much dog and cat for? Is there a demand for it or something? Have they developed a taste? Why is PETA wasting their time here with stuff like this going on? Prbly just like the environmentalists who focus on the USA and ignore the bigger problem in china.
QuoteTop public health officials say Americans should prepare for the spread of the coronavirus in communities across the U.S."It's not so much a question of if this will happen any more, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness," the head of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Disease, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, said during a media briefing Tuesday.Measures to contain the virus in the U.S. so far have involved restricting travel to and from China — the center of the outbreak — and isolating cases identified so far in this country.But Messonnier said that evidence the virus is spreading in other countries, such as Iran and Italy, has raised CDC's "level of concern and expectation that we'll see spread" in the U.S.She added that Americans need to prepare for disruptions to their daily lives, including school closures, working from home or delayed elective medical procedures, as efforts to contain and control possible spread in the U.S. may accelerate in the coming weeks.

Quote from: ldub23 on February 25, 2020, 10:40:50 PMI have to agree with Newt Gingrich this morning. How many people live in Italy? 50million? 300 or so have the virus? How got the regular flu during the same time? Im also going to go out on a huge limb and say the regular good ol flu has and will kill more people than the corona virus ever will. Panic over nothing in my humble opinion."According to new estimates published today, between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide die from seasonal influenza-related respiratory illnesses each year, higher than a previous estimate of 250,000 to 500,000 and based on a robust, multinational survey.The new estimate, from a collaborative study by CDC and global health partners, appears today in The Lancet. The estimate excludes deaths during pandemics."https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2017/p1213-flu-death-estimate.htmlOne final point, like all flu i have no doubt alot of people have gotten corona, got over it, and thought they had an average cold. The VAST majority of cases are quite mild. The media makes it look like the black plague. "https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/health/1237961/coronavirus-fatality-rate-vs-flu-how-deadly-is-coronavirus-flu-death-toll-2020The fatality rate is nearly three percent higher in the city of Wuhan in Hubei province, where the virus originated, which has a rate of 4.9 percent.Excepting cases in Hubei, the mortality rate drops down to 0.16 percent, bringing it much closer to the flu.A separate tracker from coronavirus.app revealed 701 people have recovered from the disease, assigning it a recovery rate of 3.39 percent.The latest coronavirus is not the first to have caused global panic, as another member of the family, SARS, circulated the world from China in 2002-2003.Compared to SARS, which had a mortality rate of 9.6 percent, 2019-nCoV is much less deadly."And lets not forget. The world didnt come to end with Sars. Finally, you take out the 1 3rd world province of China and the death rate for corona is 0.16%. Its the flu, and nothing more.
Quote from: Solar on February 25, 2020, 11:14:12 PMYou just keep on buying bogus numbers, but the fact is, China lied and is still lying about the numbers. This is no ordinary flu, it is a weaponized virus with an attached HIV component and latest results show, you really never get rid of the flu, it will always be with you once exposed, thanks to that added HIV component.Your willingness to accept govt and WHO numbers as fact says a lot about you as a lib and your trust in Govt. This thing is only getting started, has proven to be more contagious, live longer without a host and even lie dormant in certain hosts as it spreads to other victims, something simple flu of the past have not been noted for.There's a reason for the panic from other nations, they know the truth, the truth that WHO is hiding from the public so as not to create panic, that part I get. But to attempt to blow this off as just another bug?Better hope you don't catch it at your age.Why are you not questioning why so many people are being quarantined over "Just Another Flu"?
Quote from: s3779m on February 25, 2020, 11:22:29 PMI keep hearing about South Korea and how many cases there, but nothing on North Korea. I would not be surprised if the cases there are as high as China's. Think we will ever find anything out about them? If the government there opens up the border, we will have a pretty good idea. Mexico I think is our biggest concern, we can not control our borders.
Quote from: ldub23 on February 26, 2020, 12:53:38 AMYep, just another flu. I guess you lived through SARS., most people managed to make it.
