    This isn't directed at you, I'm just using your quote as a springboard for others.
    Well, I recall mentioning that everyone will likely get it.

    It's fucking over guys. Now already at 52k with almost 4hours to go. Looks like our hopes of flattening the curve early is gone.

    It's just a ticking bomb of viruses waiting to happen in those places.
    China has 0 new case in the last 2 weeks.
    I predict, 100 years from now, China is called Holy Land.

    Is China still open to foreign travelers? I'm sick of the situation here and would like to move to a safe haven like China. Their healthcare system and leadership in handling this whole crisis have been nothing but phenomenal.

    That is, objectively, a lie, even if you believe their internationally-released "data".

    Are you suggesting that propaganda will still exist in 100 years?

    Also, I'm sure the CCP calls it a "Holy Land" right now, so why wait?

    How long do you predict the CCP would last?

    Maybe the coronavirus scandal will lead to a nuclear war between USA and China.

    Fallout becomes real.

    Unless China is going to change their way of markets and eating animals they will have the whole world pissed at them, hopefully a war is not going to break out.

    Dude you are so face palm. Do you love the CCP because they fudge the numbers? Can live in fantasy land saying the virus is going away because they stop reporting it. Yeah can see why you'd wanna move to China to get away from doom sayers. Aka people with a grip on reality

    In its current form? Probably not 100 years.

    I am not a big fan of testing everyone, i would go with those who actually need it first. I would also be more interested in a test if i already had it or not.
    Another thing, if you get tested and declared "not infected", wouldn't that send a wrong message to some acting a big more freely?

    Anyway has to be a whole framework around this, because testing random people and telling them they are not infected is really not helping the big picture.

    I would argue for people who need it like risk groups first, but i am biased as i have had lung issues before that mimic part of the corona virus symptoms.

    I mean, schools are all shut down. One explanation thus comes readily to mind.

    Multiple people told you this was going to happen. Douchbaggery aside, flatten the curve means just that. Its going to go from climbing fucking steeply to climbing slightly less fucking steeply. Over time the plan / aspiration / hope is to get it towards where it flattens, ie no new infections. It's simply not possible for it to go from a vertical wall to a dead level floor overnight, or even over a few days. It will happen over weeks and those weeks are probably towards the middle of April.

    And thats only Europe and North America. Africa / South America / India have crises looming that makes what is happening in the USA look trivial in comparison. India has a population 4 times the size of the USA and mass migration out of the big cities is happening as we speak because they've shut down. If this gets out of control in India its going to be biblical and heartbreaking.

    Thats why I think people are so angry at you. I can't speak for others but I get the impression you are kinda wiping your brow thinking "phew", its under control. This is going to get far worse and however long you think its going to persist, its going to be longer.
