A coronavirus (same family as 2002's SARS, but also other harmless stuff) has been reported in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Japan and (announced just now) the US. One case so far in Seattle, the CDC says they expect further cases.

It has killed six people so far in the Wuhan area of China since December. There are 308 confirmed cases (also in China I think). Experts from Imperial College estimate the actual number of patients at 1700.

Person-to-person contagion has been confirmed. Also a ton of Chinese people are travelling at the moment for their new year celebrations.

Please use this thread to discuss your plans to save the world (SA successfully curbed Ebola by grounding all planes I recall), and how you plan to spend your last few days after those plans have failed


Burt edit: Performative Bloodlust posting prohibition is now in effect. Punch up not down when making jokes as well. Thank you for your attention

Burt edit 2: this is not the place to make subtle racist jabs by saying China flu or Kung flu or whatever. Even if the president feels itís ok, Iím not ok with it. Thank you!

Burt edit 3: gbs does have a no politix rule overall, however itt you can post it itt if itís related to covid. Just not primary chat, hillary sucks, etc

It's honestly refreshing to hear about something that might kill us besides climate change or Trump.

When no one was looking, Serval took forty Japari buns. She took 40 buns. That's as many as four tens. And that's terrible.

I'll start worrying when it gets to SARS or Swine Flu levels of outbreak.
Heck even ebola wasn't all that worrying for anybody in the west.

so it only kills 2% of the people it infects?

that's a weak rear end virus, you probably won't even notice which person stopped showing up at the office.

you need at least 25% lethality to make your morning commute slightly more bearable!

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

Bear in mind those numbers are coming from the PRC, who were denying that there was person to person transmission at all until yesterday. I'd take anything they say with a grain of salt.

Flying internationally tomorrow. Europe to States. So I can't wait to be stuck an ocean away from my cat while the world wheezes to death. I was honestly hoping to age my way out of vulnerability of these flus. Basically if you're young you're hosed.
