I didn't read anything about the coronavirus until I read this thread. I was aware of it's existence and knew people were panicking because I heard talk about it. From what I've read so far it sounds like over 2,800 people have died from this coronavirus outbreak. But if this turns out to only be an average year for the flu, it will kill 400,000 people. It's no surprise this originated in China. Nearly all of the new influenza and coronaviruses come from China. Offhand, the only exception I can think of is MERS.

On a related topic: How does the CDC decide which strains of flu to vaccinate against each year? Some strains of flu that end up in our vaccines don't even exist in the U.S. Not yet. But they do in filthy, overcrowded, animals everywhere, and people eat anything that moves, s**t in the street, China. It's like a time machine, but when they go over there to study the viruses they don't know if they'll be here this year or 10 years from now. They only know that what's in China at the present will be here in the future unless all the carriers die first. Like a fire that burns itself out and doesn't spread, you get lucky and the virus doesn't leave the hot zone. But that doesn't happen very often. It's not in the virus' best interest to kill its host before it spreads, and this is where natural selection fits in. Survival of the fittest and sometimes stealthiest.

The virologists have to decide, out of all the different flu viruses, which 3 they think will be the biggest problem the next flu season, then the drug companies make the vaccine for the season. And it always starts in that overflowing Petri dish full of tainted specimens called China. And the flu shot will only work that one year because viruses mutate so fast. Then along comes this coronavirus with no vaccine, and no real hope of an effective vaccine being produced anytime soon. The good new is, if you're healthy and you get it, there's a very good chance you'll be okay. If you're sick with pneumonia or the flu already your odds are still pretty good.

And NOW Kalifornia. San Francisco to be exact. It would not surprise me at all if we start getting more and more of these diseases starting here in this country thanks to the lower standard of living brought on by the Democratic leadership in Kalifornia. Lower standard of living, wholesale importing of illegal immigrants that bypass any sort of health check, etc..

Always keep in mind what people say and what they do may indicated 2 different things.  The Chinese have a flu season every year like us.  The difference is this time they quarantined 70 million to their homes, another 600 million plus to their neighborhoods and restricted travel.  Regardless of what we may think you just don't do that for the regular flu.  If you did isolate like that for a flu season it would have been done for the flu seasons in the past.  This one is different.

I have heard it suggested that Corona is a research project for a biological weapon gone amiss....no real proof..just a pile of circumstantial evidence.

The misses has been going to meetings about it what seems like every day for the past 2 weeks. Granted she would not really see a case of it.  She still has to go theu the shtf stuff.

I am still mot personally worried about it.   I am worried about friends/ family that have weak immune systems, but thats normal.

The economic fallout will impact most people who work.  The Wuhan China area (Hubei Provine) still has the 60 million people plus under quarantine after 6 weeks....that's not a good sign.

I go with Occam's Razor on this one.

Read a blurb about some US chemist who was being investigated or tried for giving proprietary info and for working with the Chinese Bio-weapons lab in Wuhan...don't know the reliability of this report, but what a coincidence.

Actually a 2nd university professor was charged this past week.  They sold us out. 

I don't think this is related to the Coronavirus.  Just goes to show what the liberal bastards bastions are good for.

Grapevine says the interstates will be shut down...probably the weekend or maybe at the end of the weekend.  No non-essential commercial transportation and only trips for food or medical reasons will be allowed.  Any of you guys get a drift in that direction?

Not to alarm anyone of course...it may be BS...

Something i just noticed while checking out the mls.  Thr ammount of properties pulled from the market  is troubling.  90% have been pulled( or sold... yeah  right) in the last week.

If i was still working i would be going out of my mind right now staying  at home like i am now.
