I'd imagine they've been eating bats for many many many years with no virus going on. It's all very interesting.
This is how human ignorance and Science works

We powder our assholes with Asbestos for many many many years through history with no issues going on, so it seems FINE.
Until Science tells us shoving teeny tiny glass needles up our bum and lungs might not be so smart and it still took us many many years to stop powdering our asses with the shit.

Ignorance is a motherfucker

I went back to the store today and bought a few more food supplies, and whatever hand sanitizer I could buy. The shelves were full of everything except hand-sanitizer, face masks, and ammo. If you’re in America, you still have time to stock up! (On most things.)

YES. FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS!

Turns out protective masks are ineffective on soy-men and hipsters.

not really good news most of them will just not bother with the effectively part and ignore the beard cutting step, humans are stupid like pussies who buy ammo instead of more water for survival

When is the coronavirus season over?
It’s too widespread and can’t be isolated. It’s been stated that you can get better and catch it again later just like the flu and since we don’t have a cure for the common cold yet I don’t think we’ll be getting one for this anytime in future either...

You say that now but when the water runs out and you have to go outside and shoot some you'll be sorry.

Geez, so even once the symptoms subside, the virus might still be at work in your body? Ugh. Also, don’t look up examples of biphasic diseases. It will depress you.

The panic-mongering here is extremely inappropriate. Sure, this is a new situation for the world, but what some people are writing here is really meaningless and without any substance.

COVID-19 is not the plague. Most people who are infected with COVID-19 will get well soon. The critical and unfortunately fatal cases are due to the typical factors as with the flu. Diabetes, cardiac insufficiency and COPD are the main reasons and probably the only reasons for critical conditions triggered by COVID-19.
If you are healthy, even as an elderly person, there is no reason to panic or be afraid, even though the whole situation certainly seems frightening, primarily because it is simply new and unfamiliar.

And for God's sake, please stop spreading ridiculous conspiracy theories here. It's not a good time for shit like this, because many people are already unnecessarily scared.

All the other crap like "A woman in Japan has tested positive for #Coronavirus for the second time, after initial recovery" can usually be attributed to false negative or false postive tests.

Being locked into quarantine and having to live off your own food and water for an unknown period of time is already happening in various parts of the world.

Be prepared.

Did you read the article? No, you didn't.

She tested positive back in January, and was recovered and released around February 1st. She was tested positive after she became sick again, weeks later.

"Once you have the infection, it could remain dormant and with minimal symptoms, and then you can get an exacerbation if it finds its way into the lungs," said Philip Tierno Jr., Professor of Microbiology and Pathology at NYU School of Medicine.
I'd prefer people to share info and let everyone here decide what to do with it.

'Pro-China youtuber' turns against local government and Chinese coronavirus response, but not for the reasons you might think; I think I have to agree with him.


Iran has received 50,000 free testing kits from china.

Canadian doctors also encountered this and don’t know why it stays in the bloodstream or if the virus is even dead if you are healed.

I wonder how many rounds of Covid you can survive. We can turn it into a game, gold star for anyone who survives 20 rounds, platinum for 30 and diamond for 40+ :D

There is definitely no reason to panic. A great group of talented people are working on this. We are very very ready for this. The president put the great Mike Pence in charge. Mike Pence has a lot of experience in this area. After Mike Pence was put in charge, he proceeded to rub his nose and shake everybody's hand. Remember Gaf, wash your hands, cover your mouth, and stay the fuck away from the coronavirus czar.

US still allows flights from South Korea and Italy
I think it has more to do with having a strong military tie to South Korea but this virus is going to shake up relationships

China and Japan are acting like good friends right now
