LoL!

Honestly wont matter, it will be here sooner or later. The world is too interconnected now. It wouldnt surprise me in the least if we already have thousands of cases here in the USA.

Reasons 1 - 100 why none of the information to date is reliable. Nearing the end of February and the WHO has no presence in Wuhan? All information comes from the dictatorship.

What do you expect them to do in the US that isn't already being done?

Meh...Easy for you to say when only 20% os less of this overpopulate planet live the life style the You (and I ) live. 50+% of the earth's people live in what would be less than poverty in the U.S. Where are all the recources going to come from to allow these folks to live like you?????????

If you want to argue the point I won't bother arguing..I'll argue thith a bag of potato chips in front of me.

It's probable that they know more about what is going on than we do, and took the necessary measures to keep it from spreading.

Update from Italy:

ITALY OUTBREAK

Italy now has the highest number of cases and deaths in Europe (tripling Germany in second place).
Coronavirus cases in Italy have already more than doubled since yesterday.
There are now a total of:
- 36 cases in Lombardy region (including 1 death, 1 critical, and at least 14 serious cases).
- 9 in Veneto region (including 1 death and at least 1 critical case).
- 3 in Rome.
20+ new cases today in Italy, including at least:
- 2 doctors, husband and wife (a pediatrician), in Pieve Porto Morone (Pavia, Lombardy).
- 5 new cases in V Euganeo (Padua, Veneto region).
- 1 in Cremona (Lombardy region).
- 1 in Sesto Cremonese (Lombardy region).
- 2 in Dolo (Veneto region).
1 new death in Italy, a 75-year-old woman who was hospitalized a few days ago for pneumonia in the Lodi area (Lombardy region).
Hundreds waiting for test results. 10 towns, 50,000 people, placed in precautionary voluntary quarantine. Schools, workplaces, municipal and private offices, 3 train stations, coffee shops, and public places closed in the affected towns.
Emergency meetings being held today.
The 38-year-old man near Lodi is in critical condition (mechanically ventilated in intensive care, according to his parents) and at least 14 contacts are in serious condition, according to doctors, and include:
- 5 health workers and doctors.
- 3 patients at the Codogno hospital.
- 3 elderly (in the 70s and 80s) clients of a bar run by the father of the man's friend.
"People must be distantiated right now, because this is a virus that is transmitted very effectively at close range" said the director of the infectious diseases department of the Higher Institute of Health, Gianni Rezza.

Probably the opposite of what I was hoping for, but it looks like we will get some good data. Thoughts and prayers to those infected.

There isn't a resource problem on the planet. There is a resource distribution problem on the planet. Generally the fault of despotic governments and other murdering dictators on the planet. All the food need in the world can be grown in California and the mid-west. Literally. I have friends they pay to NOT grow food in this state.

Im supposed to go next weekend for work; but concerned because of the potential for hotel/restaurant workers to have been exposed but not yet symptomatic, and because I have an immune system suppression and am susceptible to cold/flu (vaccinated), and thus this as well. Will be watching closely this week to decide whether to cancel.

Don't go.
The problem with flying into MSY is flying OUT of MSY. You will be exposed to all of the partygoers that are left over as they walk past you in boarding. I stopped flying out on Monday mornings, first, then moved to Tuesday afternoons after I had drunks throw up in the tunnel and aisle boarding. It can be brutal. I'm out.
