    They've got a serious problem but at least they don't have a problem with bureaucrats delaying construction.

      We are due for another Pandemic. It has been about a 100 years

      If one hits there it will kill 10s of millions.

        I am assuming that the hospital that will be completed in 2 weeks is a circus tent. And if Red China says there is 800 documented cases you can damn well believe them (cough cough). Need to multiply that by a minimum of 10.

              It's not a "flu" bug. Flu is caused by the influenza virus. This is a coronavirus that usually causes a common cold, but this strain from Wuhan, China can cause a viral pneumonia which can be deadly. It can cause flu like symptoms. There is no treatment. Since it's viral antibiotics won't work and an anti-viral agent is not available. We will hear more of this because of international travel.

                    It sounds like they are scared in China. Locking travel down.

                    Supposedly can be infectious during 2 week incubation period.

                    Doesn't seem the death rate warrants the lock down.

                    And why exactly do we think the Chinese are being honest about the death rate?

                        2 week incubation period reported.

                        So it is in you for 2 weeks before you know you are sick. For some portion of those two weeks, you are able to infect others. You don't know you're sick so you're still going to work or school, eating out, going to church, riding public transportation, shopping, banging your significant other, traveling. And it's not like China is overpopulated or anything, right?

                        Then you start feeling symptoms, but you've probably already infected a bunch of others.

                        This is a recipe for a major disaster.

                        Let's hope and pray we dodge this bullet.


                        Alex.

                              Can we at least ask these people how they are when they try to come to this country? The leaders of our country wouldn't want sick people to enter it.

                              They are but symptoms don't show right away.

                              On a side note...I'm at a huge trade show with A LOT of Chinese participation. :chickenlittle:
