Corona Virus seems to be very hard to transmit and very seldom fatal.

Do you have any idea of how many people in the US have been sickened during this 2019-2020 Common Flu season?

Take a look at that first before getting worked up over Corona Virus. Right now the most serious symptom of Corona Virus is not having limes.

No, my opinion is based on what little evidence we do have coming from the most effected places. So far even in China the major threat seems to be public reaction rather than the virus itself. The other issue is the utter stupidity of so many Americans and that is the bigger threat. We have had somewhat effective flu vaccines for decades yet there are still utterly stupid Americans that just don't get a shot.

The threat is simply *********.

Re: US capability to fight virus jeopardised by Trumpski
Well sodium chloride (notice that d) is just table salt so the only difference is one letter. Do you think folk are to dumb to not notice that they are just different spellings?

pan---demics; or let's share!
IIRC from my 6th grade history classes the Americas did get to experience the introduction of new virus threats in a big way once or twice. But then we also got to introduce Europe to the "Spanish Disease" which is not quite the same as the Spanish Flu.

Re: A Question About Masks
The N95 mask can be effective. The silly little prayer hankies being sold though are not an N95 mask. If a virus is smaller than the pores in the mask then the mask will not do much good.

the 2017 briefing given to Trump staff by the outgoing Obama staff
Back in 2017 the Obama staff gave a briefing to the incoming Trump staff including the issue of a potential pandemic. Here is a link to a summary of that briefing including the key points raised.

This was, I repeat, in 2017.

Now remember, il Donaldo fired or drove away a significant number of the people who attended the briefing.

Edited by jar, : add first part of briefing images

And the President gives himself a 10!
And the talking point is still that this is unprecedented and unexpected and we need a WARTIME President who knows how to get things done.

Shit gang.

Ebola happened.

SARS happened.

H1N1 happened.

1918 Spanish Flu happened.

The Spanish disease happened.

Smallpox happened.

Typhoid happened.

The Black Death happened.

AND the briefing happened.

And this is unprecedented and unexpected and we need a WARTIME President who knows how to get things done???????????????????????????????????????

Re: And the President gives himself a 10!
True that. I hear folk come all the way from South America just to walk around it admiringly. Some even take selfies of themselves and friends scaling parts of it. Soon to be the BIGGEST WONDER of the WORLD, bigger than all the other wonders combined.

Re: And the President gives himself a 10!
Some of us learned from history Faith. The Orange Menace did not, His staff was fully briefed on this scenario back in 2017 but he was too stupid to learn from the past and show no indication even now that he has a clue!

Re: And the President gives himself a 10!
Well Faith, I provided a link to the actual story as well as he slides used. Your folk as expected are simply lying.

And today, 51 Republican Senators voted down extending unemployment insurance to those who are out of work due to mandated closures.

Pitiful, totally ********** and pitiful. Shame on them and the Orange Menace.

The End Times and Great Tribulation are definitely possible but the rapture is simply fiction.

Re: FEMA Director Refuses to be Nailed Down
And who was the President that directed the creation of that stockpile?

Since the stockpile idea was championed by Hilary and implemented under Bill I imagine Trump will be annoucing how we owe a major debt to Bill & Hilary.
