RE: The Chinese/Asian coronavirus thread
Here's a comparison of the Gate's foundation Institute for Disease Modeling on the left at roughly 1 month and the current status for the coronavirus on the right.

Not counting the death stats, if we are looking at this just from a spreading angle this is pretty accurate on the spread right now though the simulation lags behind on the current coronavirus isolated cases in US, Australia and France. The simulation nails down Asian's spread almost 100%.

This is where things could get really interesting. According to the simulation things spread like hell once you get into the second month and the virus plants itself on this new lands, it goes global. We will have to see how this actually plays out but the end of February is where things could start getting dicey and end of March could be very bad. We gotta another 3-4 months of flu season in the Northern Hemisphere. If the simulation is accurate the next 2 weeks are going to be the calm before the storm.

Aloha!

I was in Chinatown in San Francisco last night. The entire length of Grant Avenue was lit up by fireworks.

And I don't mean the sparklers and black snakes from your local roadside stand. These were full-size mortars from a municipal fireworks display. People were just setting them off in the middle of the street.

My only hope is that amount of sheer gunpowder was enough to burn off any viruses that may have been lingering in the air.

PS - If the coronavirus ever makes it to Hawai'i I'm going to petition congress to change the name to buschvirus.

You can get those mortars in the south fairly inexpensively. They are smaller than the kind your city shoots off, but they don’t go as high so they are equally impressive albeit more dangerous.

Eh. How do you quarantine a city of 21 million people? Isn't that beyond a logistical nightmare?

I will dial down my paranoia when China stops expanding the area of quarantine and pulls back the military.

If it was "relax its just a cold Bro" and China's response is an appropriate measure we should be quarantining entire states in the US each seasonal flu season. Its way too much of an overreaction for nothing.

The government response to this doesn't equate to no big deal.

If China was your girlfriend, and she was huddled up on the couch with her back to the wall, eyes glued to her phone and replying to a constant 'bing bing bing' of new messages and you said "wow who are you talking to?" and she replied "oh its nothing/nobody" and went back to having her glossy eyes glued to her screen...would you believe her?

They are in full trying to contain panic, the economy would get wrecked, Canada had the third highest SARS death count after Hong Kong and China since they dropped the ball initially. Toronto lost over $1 Billion in GDP during the SARS crisis, and now we're much more intertwined with China compared to 2003.

It takes awhile for Canada to "confirm" since the lvl 4 bio lab is in Winnipeg, we're going to see more cases this week, Ontario Toronto is presumptive case.

This same Winnipeg lab had a serious "security" policy breach involving Chinese nationals.

Quote:Chinese researcher escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/...-1.5211567

A researcher with ties to China was recently escorted out of the National Microbiology Lab (NML) in Winnipeg amid an RCMP investigation into what's being described as a possible "policy breach."

Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, her husband Keding Cheng and an unknown number of her students from China were removed from Canada's only level-4 lab on July 5, CBC News has learned.

A Level 4 virology facility is a lab equipped to work with the most serious and deadly human and animal diseases. That makes the Arlington Street lab one of only a handful in North America capable of handling pathogens requiring the highest level of containment, such as Ebola.

Security access for the couple and the Chinese students was revoked, according to sources who work at the lab and do not want to be identified because they fear consequences for speaking out.

Hour Long discuss from Serpentza and LaoWhy (The two vloggers who do ADVChina) discussing what they’ve heard from their own doctor friends in China and other aspects of the Chinese response.


China massively fucked up by trying to save face. They cracked down on and arrested the people warning about the problem then did stupid shit like letting people get on airplanes who were displaying virus symptoms.


importantly cases in China are being massively under-reported and that’s coming from Chinese doctors

There's a reason why Quebec has no economy and has to be supported by productive provinces such as Alberta.

Looks like they've got a suspected case in Israel now. Keep an eye out to see if all of a sudden the global response goes into overdrive.

RE: The Chinese/Asian coronavirus thread
Latest update -

At a press conference by the State Council Information Office of China, they confirmed that there have been 2,057 cases of coronavirus globally. China’s national health minister Ma Xiaowei said that it is possible the pathogen causing the virus came from a wild animal, and that 1,600 medical professionals were being dispatched to Wuhan to help handle the rising number of cases.

Ma admitted that the virus’s ability to spread seemed to be getting stronger and that they were not clear about the risks of the virus mutating. The incubation period is between 1 and 14 days.

---- So when are the zombies gonna show up?
