    I think glass half full. Maybe this is the excuse Trump needs to declare a national emergency and shut border down to include all travel to and from Mexico and use active duty military to do it.

    1 cup of beans or lentils to 3 cups of brown rice. Complete meal. You can live on this, though not very well.

    You are correct. Humans have innate resistance to that virus.

    Likely none for this one.

    Makes a solid argument for shutting it down completely.

    Are there any Epidemiologists
    in Glock Talk?

    They could accurately apprise the situation.

    Not all of us could. THAT as "meals" would likely kill me faster - collagenous colitis, and I'd rather BE dead than go through this past summer's hospitalization+.

    Which made me think about Rx meds. Ins w/not cover mass quantities of refils; drug stores may not evem HAVE stock to fill with. No way could I financially swing 4-odd months of buy ahead food, water, AND HTN Stage II meds out of a month's crummy, fixed income. Nope, that can not become a happening thing.

    I would just hope I could permanently depart a bit more quickly than last time. NOT willing to stroke partially out and just lay there in agony until all systems stop. NOPE.

    I've only seen them scanning foreheads with IR guns for fever. The one lady who bragged she got through with a fever just took aspirin or something to reduce fever. So that type of screening is pretty porous.

    The reports I've seen have indicated that the thermometer checks used by the Chinese at airports to keep people off flights is not completely effective, given the fact that they may be asymptomatic at the time of the screening.
    At what point do we stop accepting flights from China or divert them to some remote Landing site and require those passengers to be quarantine for some amount of time?

    Seems like the simple solution would to have all the passengers just bend over. Free Rectal Thermometers for EVERYONE!! (flights to San Francisco passengers checked twice)

    In addition, multiple social media reports (UNCONFIRMED) of troop convoys heading toward and around Wuhan. NOTE: Unverified. Possibly rumors.

    Since we may be witnessing history in the making, I think
    2019 nCov is too bland.

    How about “Captain Tripps” from “The Stand.”

    Its hard to tell where the knowledgeable/informed leave off and the lying news with their bagdad bobs reporting take over.
