There's a virus called the Wuhan virus that's comparable to SARs which is spreading.

Is China's security apparatus just as effective at detecting those? Doesn't appear so when it's spreading everywhere.

Looks to be getting worse from what I hear. Not only is it spreading overseas but the videos posted online paint people about to be qurantined getting the literal fuck out of dodge even if there's a chance they'll spread the virus.

This is really one of those moments where someone loves sucking off China to a MAGA supporter and then this happens to demonstrate China's vulnerability that's even worse than Hong Kong protests. A viral outbreak especially when China's more connected with the whole world.

You know, I've been wondering if Brexit would be the thing that triggered the Chinese economic implosion, by medium of the EU economic implosion...

It honestly hadn't occurred to me that it might be a plague outbreak.

They always do, got to think about economic consequences you know.
I just don't remember the Chinese ever sealing a city off, even during SARS, which was bad. This sounds kinda SARS-lite, but the fact that they're doing this means one of two things?

1) They're actually taking it seriously and are overreacting?
2) It's worse than they're telling anyone and this is a good way to keep the Western media out?

Given their economic situation they dredd any interruptions in their exports, so they are most likely overreacting to prevent such scenario, just like they did with Bubonic plague case in thae autumn.

North America is in big trouble if this CoronaVirus reaches LA, San Fran, Portland, or Seattle. Poor sanitation and an excess of homeless for it to cut through and mutate into more deadly strains along the way. Even ignoring the rumblings that the Chinese are hiding how bad this really is. As for what might happen in South America, Venezuela is doomed, and the potential rush of refugees into Columbia/Guyana will make things even worse. Definitely worth paying attention to.

They should STFU for once and let people do their job unless they want infectees to come to their studio to infect them then they'll support a qurantine.

This will ironically promote better borders. It's not refugees or migrants people can get behind but a virus outbreak unless more people act retarded and start bitching about infected rights.

Hey, the Democratic Elites are Champagne Socialists who live in their ivory towers and manage to alienage guys like say Britian’s white working class becaus they dumped em for guys they felt were more oppressed. They will keep spreading it

Gotta use shame and a false sense of empathy to stop people from thinking

Okay, seriously. Every thread I see you on, you seem to be doing little else but moaning about all the nasty moves the political left will make.

The endless negativity is getting pretty obnoxious; please lighten up, or at least post some thoughts that don't make you sound like a doom-and-gloomer.

Will we get giant mutated zombies and the song
X gone give it to ya, playing 24/7?
No much more insidious.

You see cold hearted sons of bitches dodging qurantine and posting about it on social media? Worse than zombies. They will spread everywhere taking medicine to lower the fever and carry on pretending life is normal until they infect someone.

Fucking viral carrier infiltrators.

Dude, I am sort of the opinion that no matter what happens, even if Trump wins, the Left will always have a stronghold when it comes to entertainment and news media


Plus, as said on other threads, stuff like this ain’t really surprising anymore
