Just a flu, bro.

Meanwhile my wife and I are at the store and she says "these are on special, how many should we get?"

Virus Kills Member of Council Advising Iran's Supreme Leader

Quote:TEHRAN, Iran — A member of a council that advises Iran's supreme leader died Monday after falling sick from the new coronavirus, state radio reported, becoming the first top official to succumb to the illness that is affecting members of the Islamic Republic's leadership.

Expediency Council member Mohammad Mirmohammadi died at a Tehran hospital of the virus, state radio said. He was 71.

The council advises Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as well as settles disputes between the supreme leader and parliament.


His death comes as other top officials have contracted the virus in Iran, which has the highest death toll in the world after China, the epicenter of the outbreak.

Those sick included include Vice President Masoumeh Ebtekar, better known as “Sister Mary,” the English-speaking spokeswoman for the students who seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and sparked the 444-day hostage crisis, state media reported. Also sick is Iraj Harirchi, the head of an Iranian government task force on the coronavirus who tried to downplay the virus before falling ill.

Iran has reported 978 confirmed cases of the new virus with 54 deaths from the illness it causes, called COVID-19. Across the wider Mideast, there are over 1,150 cases of the new coronavirus, the majority of which are linked back to Iran.

Experts worry Iran's percentage of deaths to infections, around 5.5%, is much higher than other countries, suggesting the number of infections in Iran may be much higher than current figures show.

Trying to stem the outbreak of the new coronavirus, Iran on Monday held an online-only briefing by its Foreign Ministry.


Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi opened the online news conference addressing the outbreak, dismissing an offer of help for Iran by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Iran and the U.S. have seen some of the worst tensions since its 1979 Islamic Revolution in recent months, culminating in the American drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad and a subsequent Iranian ballistic missile counterattack against U.S. forces.

"We neither count on such help nor are we ready to accept verbal help," Mousavi said. He added Iran has always been "suspicious" about America's intentions and accused the U.S. government of trying to weaken Iranians' spirits over the outbreak.

The British Embassy meanwhile has begun evacuations over the virus.

“Essential staff needed to continue critical work will remain,” the British Foreign Office said. “In the event that the situation deteriorates further, the ability of the British Embassy to provide assistance to British nationals from within Iran may be limited.”

While Iran has closed schools and universities to stop the spread of the virus, major Shiite shrines have remained open despite civilian authorities calling for them to be closed. The holy cities of Mashhad and Qom in particular, both home to shrines, have been hard-hit by the virus. Shiites often touch and kiss shrines as a sign of their faith. Authorities have been cleaning the shrines with disinfectants.

Police have arrested one man who posted a video showing himself licking the metal enclosing the Imam Reza shrine in Mashhad, the most-important Shiite saint buried in the country, according to reports by semiofficial news agencies. In the video, the man said he licked the metal to “allow others to visit the shrine with peace of mind.”


Meanwhile Monday, the virus outbreak saw itself dragged into the yearslong boycott of Qatar by four Arab nations over a political dispute.

A prominent columnist at Dubai's government-owned Al-Bayan newspaper on Twitter falsely described the virus as being a plot by Qatar to hurt the upcoming Expo 2020 world's fair in Dubai and Saudi Arabia. Noura al-Moteari later described the tweet as “satire" to The Associated Press after it gained widespread attention.

The Dubai Media Office similarly described the tweet as being written in a “cynical style” while distancing the Arabic-language daily from al-Moteari.

“Noura is a freelance writer and is not an employee of Al-Bayan nor does she represent the publication’s views,” it told the AP. "That being said, this has no relevance to any social media policy being practiced by the publication nor the state."

The tweet comes after Qatar expressed disappointment Sunday that nearly all of its Gulf neighbors snubbed invitations to attend the weekend peace signing ceremony between the U.S. and the Taliban.

It's starting to get warm in India, I wonder if warm weather affects transmission? After all flu tends to be around more in colder climates.

I seemed to have guessed right unfortunately:

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread
Even if they release the bad versions in China and Iran nothing in our world is designed to stop it there and only there - it's designed to spread it (as we see every day with new cases and countries). You could engineer it genetically to affect certain populations, but even that is random and impossible to control - and seems to be debunked by the latest developments.

Scientists are full of hubris, they always think they can control these things. My guess is, mutations have already occurred that the scientists, both the ones responsible and the ones working on it, have no idea how to deal with.

Join that to the inherent fragility of all parts of our system, and it's going to be interesting.

If this only caused medical and economic problems we'd be fine, but all the other aspects of social life are in the toilet: no community, no cohesion, no manners, no ethics, no charity. So when the medical and economic problems become stark, there is no stability anywhere else to keep chaos from ensuing. Probably going to be a great power grab totalitarian measure from governments all around the world, if not overt global government proposals. But even that is completely out of hubris and will fail in the face of a real pandemic, which this thing seems to be. We should know by the end of March.

What I'm hoping for is that Corona Chan will finally teach us the hard lessons. Nothing else seems to do the trick.

Pandemics are part and parcel of living in an industrial system.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread
The only reason Portugal has no cases is because our health system is notably incompetent, and so is our government, which have shown an uncharacteristic honesty in saying, for example, that it's inevitable we get cases and that we're really not doing anything, but don't panic.

Since we've tested a decent amount of people and came up short, I'm betting those tests are screwed up.

Everyone is still in the denial phase tho. The normies I've tried to warn to prepare are not taking it seriously.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread
"Global problems require global solutions" Great, we have a global problem now. Expect people to request a global solution (I'm already starting to see this around the web), and the MSM leading the charge. Hegelian Dialectic at its finest... this is a big push towards the NWO agenda and forced vaccinations.

They released it in China and Iran first, because the countries that got hit before we know it even existed will be hit hardest. But then they deliberately let it spread around the world... borders stayed open, WHO even said no reason to stop traveling. And there's plausible deniability... yeah, the enemies of the Evil Empire got hit hardest, but everyone got hit so... nothing to see here.

An Italian man in Jaipur, India tests positive for corona




Considering how densely populated India is, especially in the big cities (New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, etc) corona is going to spread like wildfire and the Indian health system will not be able to handle it

Edit: India is stupid for not stopping flights from Italy. The Italian man arrived on Feb. 29...wtf

One backdoor that you have to consider is shared laundry facilities, if you live in an apartment building. I think one way around this is to use bleach with your load of whites first, then reuse that same machine for the rest of your washing.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread
I cleaned out a whole bunch of my kitchen cupboards today and rearranged the contents in a more orderly fashion so I could know for sure what I had on hand and not accidentally buy more of anything I already had plenty of. It was nice finding stuff I'd forgotten I ever bought and my food supplies are in way better shape than I'd suspected. Now I can focus on filling the gaps.

For anyone with kitchen cupboard clutter I highly recommend doing likewise. You will feel better knowing for sure what you have on hand.

p.s. I just ate a can of chicken and sweetcorn soup from roughly two years ago and it was great. I could live on that stuff.

They have migrant workers coming home from Russia that will bring the disease.

No place to hide really.

I think that this event was not planned at all. Hopefully, it will show the west just how reliant it is on cheap Chinese crap.

Speaking of shitty meals, theres no proteins in your list.

Not sure if the above list is serious but on this thread doesn't seem like we have a good list. On the older thread I posted this, curious to see if others have suggestions on obvious items that are missing:

Running list of items (specific to virus quarantine not for general SHTF)

Drinking Water 1 gallon per day per person
Ibuprofen
Masks
Flu medicine (any specifics?)
Bat/large knife
Fats/Oils
Tinned meat/fish,
tinned beans,
rice
dried beans/lentils.
Toilet paper
Hand sanitizer (though it only kills bacteria right?)
Antibiotics
First aid kit
Protein bars
Hand soap
candles and matches/lighter
Bathroom bucket
Duck tape
Radio with batteries
Flashlight
Heavy duty plastic bags
