    The new plague or overhyped flu? What say you?

    Hard to trust any numbers coming out of China.

    Yeah...I was actually on CDC website last night. You do NOT want to get this. It’s deadly...and spread through respiratory. It’s from China sea food and poultry markets. Those knuckleheads never will get “don’t hoard animals together” lessons no matter how many times you hit them over the head with it. It’s not a type of normal flu virus...it’s killing a lot of people. We have lots of warnings on it. But CDC site is what you should go to for the straight dope...not people’s opinions or rumors. Takes 2-14 days after exposure...so if you get a fever or cough? Get to doctors fast. You don’t? Big trouble people.

    Either a doctor running late to work or the end is near.

    I saw a guy wearing a cheap home depot painting mask at the airport.

    You're doing it wrong.

    I would imagine it is an airborne virus but I have not really read anything about it.

    Keep in mind however, that masks (quality ones or not) are not always there to prevent you from getting the virus/flu...it is also for people who may have a cold/flu from helping spread it to others.

    Again, it is not the be all end all to prevent an issue, but it can help if it is an airborne.

    Quarantines ...just saw a whole plane of Americans from Asian on TV being quarantined on 4 different miliatary bases . .... I think it’s more than a joke you guys. If I’m calling the shots? No one gets in our port of entries right now till they get a handle on exactly what this is.

    The CDC estimates that up to 42.9 million people got sick during the 2018-2019 flu season,
    647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died. That's fairly on par with a typical season,
    and well below the CDC's 2017-2018 estimates of 48.8 million illnesses, 959,000 hospitalizations
    and 79,400 deaths.

    Right before this showed up, the scientists, you know the ones we ignore, were discussing the melting cap and the viruses just waiting to thaw out and what they might unleash on us that we've never seen before.

    I think it's time they stopped looking at these guys as a bunch of refugees from Corman's B science fiction films and paid very close attention to them. They don't cry wolf near as much as some might want is to believe.

    I've had the Coronavirus twice, both in Mexico. The best way to bet it is to either drink Dos XX or drink less.
