rumour has it that the Pope had it and is recovering from it. he cancelled a lot of appointments in a row, which is unheard of for him, including a country retreat which doesn't even involve a public appearance.

i mean, at this point it's the guy's job to hug and be kissed by a bunch of extremely religious asian tourists, so it wouldn't surprise me.

New #China study shows #COVIDー19 can spread more readily in certain conditions. Hunan province researchers found virus in air-con bus:
-traveled 4.5m (15 ft) 2x official “safe distance”
-stayed in air for 30min
if this is the case then our turkey has already been cooked in terms of containment/prevention.

It looks like we might be in for a market crash worse than 2007-2008. Last time the indexes dropped so much in a matter of days was at the start of the financial crisis.

The stocks are fine. They only dropped 6000 points in a month.

what's the source/authenticity of this? it sounds very, very dire.

I'm not sure if it's real yet. Found it on a few different message boards. The translation is good and the level of detail would be hard to fake, but will update if it's misinformation.

i just shared it with my aunt who is responsible for a number of hospitals in the NHS. she didn't question its authenticity so i guess they're at least talking sense.

So... does everyone in Italy have 14 days of food stockpiled?

It doesn't affect livestock or crops so I don't see massive food shortages occurring.

Yes, people will be able to go out to supermarkets and restaurants as normal.

And delivery drivers and grocers and canners and farmers and machinery repairmen will be exempted from the quarantines and allowed to perform their daily tasks.

Breitbart has an article "9 Things Trump Can Do To Save the Economy from Coronavirus"
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/ … rus-trump/

Ideas are like paid sick leave for all workers, free government testing and support, days off for parents to take care of loved ones, as well as a few ideas to cut taxes because why not.

It's funny that the comments are calling all of these things Socialism and to just ignore the Corona virus.

The coronavirus did originate in a socialist country.

That settles it then. This is Socialism's fault and the solution is free market capitalism.

Actually yes, it's not exactly the black death or ebola. Banning non-essential travel and any form of public gathering will help. I don't believe our food supply is in serious danger.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) on Tuesday announced schools, places of worship and other large gathering spots within a one-mile zone of the city of New Rochelle will close their doors for 14 days, and National Guard troops will help deliver food and disinfect common areas inside the zone.
It's happening.

My sister is a nurse for a local hospital. 2 positive test for the virus came into the ER today. A baby from Italy and a millennial from Chicago who had a corona positive co-worker.

I bet pedos handing out biscuits have spread the virus faster than anything.

How many of them dick the wine also?

The first fact is that, at least in the initial stages, documented cases of COVID-19 seem to increase in exponential fashion. On the 23rd of January, China’s Hubei province, which contains the city of Wuhan, had 444 confirmed COVID-19 cases. A week later, by the 30th of January, it had 4,903 cases. Another week later, by the 6th of February, it had 22,112.

The same story is now playing out in other countries around the world. Italy had 62 identified cases of COVID-19 on the 22nd of February. It had 888 cases by the 29th of February, and 4,636 by the 6th of March.

Because the United States has been extremely sluggish in testing patients for the coronavirus, the official tally of 604 likely represents a fraction of the real caseload. But even if we take this number at face value, it suggests that we should prepare to have up to 10 times as many cases a week from today, and up to 100 times as many cases two weeks from today.
I am going to be one of those people once my sister brings it home today.

We're all gonna get it. I come into contact with hundreds of people on every commute. Just need one person with a coughing fit on a subway and you infect half the city.
