Just heard about this. Yikes.
I don’t let stuff like this bother me. Besides I cannot take vaccines so yeah . I could die from the vaccine or die from the virus

If you're born to be hung you'll never be drowned.
80,000 people a year die from the flu, this is minor details.
I'm not worried one bit.
Meh. It’s more about clicks on news sites than an actual threat
I don't drink, so I should be good.
I drink, but it's probably been twenty years or more since I've had a Corona. I'll try to keep it that way.
My sister lives in China but was on vacation in India when this broke out. Her employer wants all teachers to return by Feb 3 and home quarantine for two weeks before school starts again. They are offering $1000 to teachers who return.
It's a little like following somebody else's weather. Nothing to do for it so it's hard to engage. It's either a blip or really serious and on its way into my life. Nothing I can do to change it either way. "The News" is distraction mostly.
After watching the video it didn't seem like they gave any real info on anything really. I wasn't even aware it was flu based. Hope this thread doesn't come across as Howard Hugh waxing and waning about a couple of germs. It doesn't come across as any real news at this point.
A lot of other medical sources are saying asymptomatic contagion but the Canadian doctor at the end of the Global piece was trying to minimize that.
I think it’s a very significant concern that is being minimized in the media.
When there's a perceived existential threat to the nation (i.e. WWI/II), the media have always done what the government told them to do. And people have always deemed that acceptable. As far as I know.
While the comment earlier about the usual number of flu deaths per year is valid, this thing is just starting. So it could end up a hiccup, or a world-wide threat, we don't really know yet.
Looking at the kind of lock-downs going on, and travel restrictions, I'm inclined to agree with Wardo that they may be minimizing it to stop people from panicking.
As serious as it is, this cracked me up. Real pic from Vancouver airport. DIY haz-something or other. Everyone around is cracking up too.
But he's still staring at his phone. ha
