Will The Apple iPhone 12 Have “Beer Flu” In The Box?

February 23, 2020

Last week Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech announced
on Twitter that he got a package from China. As far as he was concern, “it was [‘beer
flu’] in a box.” He apologized to the unnamed Chinese company
for disposing of the unopened package. An irrational overreaction on his part to
the [“beer flu”] epidemic in China? If the package came over on a slow boat from
China, he clearly overreacted. If the package came over on a fast airplane
from China, he may not be overreacting. Speaking of fast airplanes from China, Apple
plans to ship millions of new iPhone 12s all over the world later this year. Will “[‘beer flu’] in a box” be coming
to an Apple Store near you? (cinematic music) Before I deep dive into today’s video, I have two announcements to make. All the sources that I’ve referenced in
this video can be found in the related article on my website. That link is in the description below. Jon Prosser announced in a recent episode of Front Page Tech that YouTube was demonetizing and deemphasizing videos in the algorithm that have the word
[“beer flu”] spoken out aloud. okay so on the screen right now I just want you to know this is the word I
want to say okay but I can’t say that word
because YouTube demonetizes it I’m not lying like I can’t say this word because
the episode we’ll get demonetized and suppressed in the algorithm so instead
of saying this word I’m gonna call it the beer flu okay Although my channel doesn’t qualify for monetization, I’ll be bleeping out the word
[“beer flu”] for this video to place nice with the algorithm. According to the U.S. Center for Disease, the
risk of contracting the [“beer flu”] from imported goods is low. “In general, because of poor survivability
of these [‘beer flu’] on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products
or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. [‘Beer flu’] are generally thought to
be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support
transmission of 2019-nCoV associated with imported goods and there have not been any
cases of 2019-nCoV in the United States associated with imported goods. The [“beer flu”], based on what I’ve
read so far, can survive 30 minutes to nine days outside the human body. Most imported goods arrive on a slow boat
from China that takes 30 days to cross the Pacific Ocean. Plenty of time for the [“beer flu”] to
die off in transit. Apple, however, ships iPhones by air that
can take three to five days for the same trip. Depending on survivability, the [“beer flu”]
may still be alive and able to infect on contact within that timeframe. People infected with the [“beer flu”]
can pass it on to others before they show outward signs of being sick. If you have ever been to a busy Apple Store,
a few sick employees can easily expose a huge number of people. All the Apple Stores in China were shut down
for the last two weeks to prevent the spread of the [“beer flu”]. Should you be concern about getting the [“beer
flu”] from a brand-new iPhone 12 at the Apple Store? Probably not. As I pointed out in my previous video about
medical mask hoarders, the regular flu has infected and killed more Americans than the
[“beer flu”] has infected and killed Chinese. The best protection against the [“beer flu”]
and regular flu is to avoid touching your face with unwashed hands and wash your hands
frequently. If you haven’t gotten one yet, get a flu
shot. If you haven’t seen my previous video, a
link can be found in the description below. If you do get an iPhone 12 at the Apple Store,
you might want to bring your own alcohol-based hand wipe to wipe it down. The employee setting up your iPhone 12 may
not have washed their hands. Please comment, like and subscribe, and click

    Remember, kids! The regular flu has infected and killed more Americans than the "beer flu" has infected and killed Chinese. Don't touch your face with unwashed hands and wash your hands frequently! If you haven't gotten one, get a flu shot!
