Chinese dropping like flies
« on: January 23, 2020, 08:01:03 PM »
I wrote it off as the typical flu deal (SARS / MERS).  Not as bad as ebola but expect 1000 old people to die in foreign countries.  Those not following it is a new coronovirus.  However there is video after video of Chinese just keeling over and face planting.  Don't we have a Chinese based dude on here?  What's the scoop?  Don't post if it will get you in trouble.

Interesting story on Zerohedge that there is a level 4 bio research lab where this started.  It could be a weaponized SARS got out of the lab.  Go to DEFCON 3.  Monitor news reports and prepare for DEFCON 2 (start stocking food at that point).  We'll know soon enough.

A supposed twitter video.  Let's see if this works:

Going by official reports and numbers, the virus doesn't seem particularly awful. But there is a disconnect here, because the Chinese have also just quarantined a city of over 10 million people. If the official information is fully accurate this would seem like an overreaction. I mean I'm pretty sure that a quarantine of that scale is unprecedented in history. Besides which, the unofficial information leaking from that city is that the virus is incredibly contagious - with large numbers of hospital staff falling ill - and that the unofficial death toll is higher. In brief, pay attention to this one.

Most of those people don't exactly look desperate for care, and since hospitals are obviously hot zones for spreading disease, I'd call this video a lesson in what not to do during a pandemic.

Looks like the "official" mortality rate is, call it, 5%.  IF this is true, we have a new flu that will be dangerous to old people.  I agree, locking down now 5 CITIES shows this to be contagious.  Let's hope it's just flu and not a big killer.

It's doubtful even the Chinese can build a 100,000 bed hospital in a week.
That's going to be a quarantine camp.

One would be faced with a very difficult task if they were asked to rate which one of Dr. Pierce's books were more prescient, The Turner Diaries, Hunter, or Serpent's Walk.

Worth a read:

We'll see what happens obviously.

Yes, I think that's sensible. Obvious hard for those affected, but on a global scale, this is nothing.

Too early to call.  From what we know the 5% mortality rate points to it killing old people only.  So it's basically the flu.  That would suck, but not be a disaster.

The fact that China is quarantining 30MM people, on the other hand, makes you pause.

DEFCON 3.  Monitor the situation, and have a plan in place for DEFCON 2.

NOTE:  3 cases now in the US.  We'll get more reliable mortality numbers from these cases.  If all 3 leave the hospital in a week, then we're looking at a flu type bug.

99% chance this is just being hyped by the 24/7 news feed. Too much fear porn and not enough facts.

One case in Chicago? We're going to Costco today. What are some items that should be de rigueur?
