    But viruses are still going to spread. Sure, they handled it in a shitty way. But the rest of the world was always going to get it, even if China handled it with absolute perfection. Novel viruses suck. We could have known more faster, but the rest of the world handled this in a god awful way, too.

    Best of luck. And wishing you to be asymptomatic. I, coincidentally(?), had a very nasty cough from mid february to mid march, and wish that to no one (could not get tested).

    And f*ck China indeed. Thousands of our people were mobilized by the army, my brother among them in a hospital battalion, and they'll be working 18/7 for at least 3 months without any chances to see their families...

    It wouldn't surprise me if their real numbers are 10 time the officials...

    On another note, they gave us today a partial explanation to the relatively high number of death in our country : a lot of the very elderly typically ask not to be reanimated if they were to suffer from a crippling illness. A little cultural peculiarity of ours perhaps, since we have legal medically assisted suicide here, doubled down by a growing social pressure on the very elderly to leave without too much fuss, given the typical enormous costs of a highly medicalized or cared end of life... such a charming world.

    That sucks . Best of luck and a speedy recovery.

    And indeed, fuck china. The people I'm fine with, but fuck their government for causing this and withholding important information to the rest of the world. Every person that died due to this they should be made responsible for. But of course they won't, because when this is all over with big business will still need china for its supply and demand, and government loves big business more the their own people.

    Nah, that will just lead to more xenophobia. It already has a name, and it likely spread out of China before even the Chinese doctors knew what it was.

    Any government is mostly just using to deflect blame from their own fuckups.

    how do you expect to do that if foreign workers are cheaper to employ than a lot of first world countries?

    Another reason the US is fucked the right wing media is now actively telling people to spread the virus.

    Twitter pulls The Federalist’s dangerous ‘pox’ coronavirus tweet

    Facebook has kept their post up btw

    It wasn’t the noise that made NJ cops shut down ‘Corona Party’ that brought warning from state’s governor

    Now these Coronavirus parties are being organized all across the country.

    not sure if it's been posted this thread moves so fast but the US sent NORTHCOMM and other key figures to bunkers

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...in-bunker.html

    smart move but people are taking it to mean more than what it likely does.

    If Chinese citizens were banned sooner from entering other countries, we would not be at the stage we are now...

    Well this is just stupid. Plenty of people who were citizens of elsewhere were already in China, became exposed, then returned home. For example, most of the US cases link back to US citizens returning from China. Stopping Chinese citizens would have done nothing to stop them bringing it back.

    I specifically said CCP virus to stick it to the CCP. Not to the Chinese, but their corrupt government that could have avoided all of this if they werent lying their asses off, just to save face. just like the fucking USSR and chernobyl

    Some decent news from my country.

    We have 1909 cases and *only 6 dead. 47 patients in ICU though, and 4 in critical state.

    *I hate to say this. I'd much prefer to have 0 cases and 0 deads, with all of my heart.
