    Default Corona Virus

    Corona Virus, it must be worse than Ch admits
    Rushing to build new hospitals & locking down whole cities , they wouldnt do that unless they were really panicked. Arresting/detaining doctors for speaking out , not a good sign .
    I guess most believe the death toll to be much higher . I heard a report that 20% of those infected required hospitalization, and is 4x as infectious as the flu , if true, that could swamp any countries hospital system.

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1177737.shtml
    2,000 more medical staff sent to support Hubei to ensure patient treatment in epicenter
    Huoshenshan hospital, a newly-built facility to treat coronavirus patients, has now received 45 patients, and will put 1000 beds into use in the next three to five days. 1400 medical staff will also work at the hospital

    this is disturbing
    The number of medical personnel going to Wuhan in the effort to combat the novelcoronavirus outbreak is expected to reach 10,000 in total by Wednesday
    Wuhan is scheduled to build another eight "Fang Cang" shelter hospitals to treat coronavirus patients

    They can and do start all over the world.

    The Plague. Several times in fact.

    The Black Death (1346-1353)Death Toll: 75 – 200 million
    Plague of Justinian (541-542)Death Toll: 25 million
    Antonine Plague (165 AD)Death Toll: 5 million
    And:

    Flu Pandemic (1968) Death Toll: 1 million
    Asian Flu (1956-1958)Death Toll: 2 million
    Sixth Cholera Pandemic (1910-1911)Death Toll: 800,000+
    Flu Pandemic (1889-1890)Death Toll: 1 million
    Third Cholera Pandemic (1852–1860)Death Toll: 1 million

    There seems to be a Pandemic of Road Accidents.

    Traffic’s toll: road accidents kill 700 people a day in China and that was in 2016.

    I do hope their driving has improved or they've found a vaccine.

    Good spotting Paul.

    Looks like the "Traffic Fatality Virus" is rife in India and China.

    I believe they have helped increase our statistics also.

    Nope, but the way they treat animals, and to a lesser extent each other, is.

    Scum.

    .
    missed a big one
    Spanish Flu 1918
    From wiki
    "The death toll is estimated to have been 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million"
    " It infected 500 million people around the world, or about 27% of the then world population"
    Contrast how American Samoa kept itself free of that flu while many died in Western Samoa .


    Chinese online sellers are now using Corona Virus as an easy excuse for not sending goods (that they dont actually have) . That p8sses me off a bit .

    Treating Coronavirus in Australia!

    I heard that a patient in Melbourne was diagnosed as suffering from Coronavirus today.

    He was told that he would be immediately placed in an isolation room and fed on a diet of flounder, pizza and flat bread.

    He asked the doctor whether that diet was going to cure him

    The doctor replied, “No. They are the only things that we can slide in under the door!”.
