    The panic has very very little to do with the damage the illness can cause and all to do with how the fucking media deals with it and how people are dumb enough to fucking panic.

    Wrong, it has everything to do with the damage the illness can cause, and what panic? You mean people panic buying cleaning supplies?

    There's a difference though, between personal choice and something out of your control. Banning sugar is seriously ridiculous, it's a persons choice to consume that much sugar (and you have to question if the stats are all related to JUST sugar consumption and not hereditary). You don't choice to become infected.

    A better stat would be how many people die because someone ELSE drank. A drunk driver kills someone every 50 minutes or so

    There's no reason for the entire country of Australia to be out of TP, come on man. People are having to buy generally cheap household item for massive amounts higher on things like Ebay just to wipe their ass.

    Bare in mind i was joking and saying how some are comparing this to the flu, yet the flu wouldn't cause global damage/multiple country wide panic buying. Being sensible and staying calm/following directions given by public health figures, there is no need to panic or out mass buying things.

    Speaking of Australia. Did you see that family that accidentally bought a crap ton of TP *2300 ish rolls* by mistake? They meant to order a lot less. There was a post of their daughter sitting on 2 full stacked pallets of TP.

    There's zero chance that the numbers they report are accurate.

    Saying that China is being truthful would be like saying Trump is being truthful.
    What does it matter if China is lying? You don't live there, and they're dealing with it far better than any other country. It's extremely pathetic how other countries have been treating the spread of the virus comparatively.

    Until a country is willing to close down the travel of 60 million people entirely (not just partially), they can shove it in complaining that China isn't doing enough.


    It's also important to realize that any vaccine being available in the next 12-15 months is wishful thinking. There is still no vaccine to SARS and that was 18 years ago. Luckily a lot of money is pouring into creating a vaccine, but money doesn't magically make one appear. Tests have to be continuously successful for a vaccine to even begin to materialize, and that could potentially take years.

    How the fuck do you accidentally buy 2300 +/- rolls of TP? O.o

    the US last night admitted they have no way to even track what hospitals and testing facilities are doing with the 900,000 test kits.

    so the numbers in the US are not even close to accurate since tracking is a huge cluster fuck right now.

    sad since we had so much time to prepair after it started to spread in china...but i guess when you have an administration that thinks its just the flu and will not be a problem.....

    They were doing an online order and when they entered 58 they though it was the number of rolls of TP. Turned out it was the number of cartoons they had ordered.

    So either not paying attention or bad labeling on the site, that could make sense. Though, i've never seen anywhere that sells by the roll.

    The number of test kits is actually irrelevant because the labs can only do about 7800 tests per day and that is if they stop testing other things.

    Not to mention how countries are dealing with asians in general, thinking that any asian person is a carrier. China doesn't have any cases where foreigners are getting attacked for possibly being carriers. I agree with China dealing with the situation far better, especially with the fever checks everywhere you go, including every community.

    That's what i'm wondering. I'm pretty sure anyone with half a brain in the white house could have predicted this would start happening in the US *as well as multiple countries around the globe* and told Trump directly that we need to start preparing like...immediately. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case..

    Just posting a link for info: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/01/a...hnk/index.html

    It's a long-ish article and not well suited for block quoting.

    I hear that if you order a side order of covfefe, that lowers the effectiveness of hysteria.

    India has cures with cow dung, not to be left behind we have this kind of stuff: https://news.yahoo.com/televangelist...162727214.html

    Lisa Landau, the chief of the state Attorney General's Health Care Bureau, sent the cease-and-desist letter on 3 March, giving Mr Bakker 10 days to comply or potentially face a $5,000 fine per violation.

    "Your show's segment may mislead consumers as to the effectiveness of the Silver Solution product in protecting against the current outbreak," Ms Landau wrote.

    "Therefore, any representation on the Jim Bakker Show that its Silver Solution products are effective at combating and/or treating the 2019 novel coronavirus violates New York law," she added.
