    Risk is low?
    This is the sars pandemic we foresaw and prepared for – with the preparation organisation and equipment that trump disbanded and cancelled.
    Epidemiologists have estimated 80% infection worldwide and fatality of 2-5%

    Never under estimate the stupidity of people and our government. Take care of yourself and your family and prepare. The shit is about to hit the fan in the states. I believe our government has already calculated how many citizens will die from this and it's an acceptable loss. It'll relieve some of the strain from the system. Take care of yourself!

    I'm confused…. they keep telling us to s thg op buying masks, because they are basically useless, and then in the next sentence they say save them for the healthcare workers….. why the fux would the healthcare workers want useless masks?

  • Reply Michael Wood March 2, 2020 at 7:03 am

    No, pretty common lie! If masks don't prevent you from getting the disease, then why are medical staff wearing them?? Should we tell medical staff not to wear them too?? I don't think you'll see that happen! LMAO I guess the CDC wants this one to spread real good. Must be time for population control phase-1.

    China Cough in New York

  • Reply Carrie Steel March 2, 2020 at 7:28 am

    Trump was talking about total ban of travel to and from China in Janurary when Chcuk and Nacy were busy talking about impeachment, and calling Trump's ban the racist attempt to distract the pubic's attention from the impeachment. Chuck is full of BS. Trump is right about the Dem's hoaxy tactics to take the opportunity of an infectious virus for political persecution. I still remember Chuck came out several weeks ago to tell us how the risk of getting the coronavirus here was extremely low. Back then, Trump already proposed travel ban. But the Dems watered the ban down and even delayed it because they were so busy accusing Trump as a racist who should be impeached. What a clown. Yeah, let's support the Dem's open-border policiy and send our planes to evacate all the non-citizen families and friends of Americans and American greencard holders from all epicenters back to the USA. How do we have so many greencard holders and citiizens who have the frequent need to travel to China, the Mid East to begin with? It's all because the immigration flood gates that the Dems opened decades ago to create a huge new American population and a ton laods of greencard holders who have lots of family in China, the Mid East and all third world countries. Now the Dems want to blame Trump for the virus?

    The Chinese New Year was on January 25, what about all the Chinese people who went back home to celebrate New Years and came back not knowing they got infected with the virus, these numbers are gijng to be much higher than they are now especially the fact that it takes 14-29 days incubation period before symptoms start arising. NYC has the highest Chinese population of any city, flushing queens and Chinatown is just like being in China, a lot of the Chinese population travel back and forth for business and like I said New Years. We are doomed. The only thing that may spare us temporarily is the warmer months coming soon but next year it will be back if you combine the flu with this virus millions will die each year.

    A mask wont do anything if you ask me. I think the short term way to prevent this is for people to simply be hygenic. Wash your hands frequently. I cant even tell you the amount of times where i've been in the bathroom at penn station & observed how many folks walk right out of there without washing their damn hamds.

    "It is hard to deny that infected Italians are spreading the virus. The first cases in at least 14 countries, including Mexico, Brazil and Nigeria, have been infected Italians who traveled to those regions from northern Italy, possibly subjecting everyone on their flight along the way. But experts argue that it would have likely happened anyway, it’s just that the Italians got there first."

  • Reply Mel Medina March 2, 2020 at 11:09 am

    Let's get one thing straight:
    This is way more serious than they're making it seem.
    Covid19 is spread not only through inhaling someone's cough or sneeze and touching contaminated surfaces and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth, but it can be spread by breathing in the air someone who is infected has exhaled when speaking to them within 3 feet!
    Think of everyone she interacted with before she became the 1st confirmed case…and everyone they interacted with.
    Protect yourself. Stay safe.

    We were warned about this in 1995.A lung disease will also break out in humans through the guilt of China, where bioweapons are being researched and a carelessness is releasing pathogens. More information on this.Real number of infections and deaths much higher than reportedActual incubation period up to four weeks to 3 monthsBreathing masks useless, virus penetrates because so small Full-body protective suit, breathing apparatus only real protectionHermetic quarantine required, must be longer than 2 weeksAsian races initially most susceptible but will spread to othersThe WHO culpable for not immediately proclaiming pandemic risk.

    Wuhan clearly was "too late" but the rest of China responded and the spreading slowed down.
    If NYC gets a burst of cases, panicked New Yorkers will travel all across the US to their friends and families…
    Close the schools, shut down the subway system, let people work from home if they can. Do it before it's too late!
