    I'm concerned that the WHO is heavily influenced by Xi. I have seen a lot of complaints from Chinese about this.

    Someone my wife used to work with left for Malaysia today for a month. A freakin MONTH!
    I get anxious enough right now if someone is coughing near me in the grocery store.

    They don't believe it is containable.

    Does anyone really expect them, or any government to say: "Well, the bad news it is we can't stop it. The good news is, it's only going to kill 2% of the Earth's population. Maybe. We think. So...150 million deaths, give or take. Could be worse."

    Just for FUN today I took my rubber Israeli gas mask to work (without the filter) and put it on when ppl started showing up. A few thought it was funny, several had NO clue what the caronavirus even was.

    My postmaster took one look at me and said "Lose the mask".

    A couple of guys scoffed at me when I told them it's on eBay for around $30. When i said if this thing gets a solid foothold in the US you might not think it's so funny. I was met with silence.

    Prepare today for you know not what tomorrow brings.

    Today I read that scientists/medics think the virus may be air borne. that might explain the high transmission count on the cruise ship moored in Japan.

    I think the number of cases on that ship is now 55 +/-. The death rate, based on ChiCom stats is just over 2%. If the death rate of the ~500 on the cruise ship is significantly higher (I think) we will then be in for big trouble.

    Keep an eye on the death rate of the 500 cruise ship passengers.
