    Wearing a N95 mask is very uncomfortable to say the least. Every year I was employed at hospital we had to have a fit-check of an N95. Luckily I only had to wear one very rarely. Our dept. had every kind of mask under the sun, but the N95 was just a pain to wear.

    Holy crap! All transportation in and out of Wuhan is going to be shut down. Not just public but private as well. Police are going to be setting up road blocks.

    If true, then we are witnessing history ladies and gentlemen. The Chicoms would never quarantine an entire major city for an epidemic unless something has happened.

    Well, that answers the question I was just about to ask. I was wondering about the issue of private vehicles.

    I was the NBC training NCO for my company when I was in the Marines. Nukes and chemical attack did not really scare me. But bio was a different story. Engineered viruses as a mass weapon scared the hell out of my.

    I met a epidemiologist who had a license plate frame that said, The Bugs Will Win

    Well not that one can choose but I would rather go out in a thermo nuclear war than get Virused to death, especially a Zombie Virus. Unlike movies if there truely was a Zombie Virus humans would lose.

    Penicillin fights bacterial infections, not viral. There are really no protections to a VIRUS except the ones built in your body. Unlike a bacterial infection, A virus attacks (binds with) the DNA of your cells to reproduce.

    I am sure that what you just reported is significant beyond my ability to comprehend.

    Probably doesn't matter but I wonder if this is something they did on their own or if they were somehow forced.

    Penicillin is ineffective against viruses. It works on bacteria through cell wall disruption. Penicillin binds to the peptoglycan bridges and terminates cell wall production.
    Isn’t Science fun?
