This apparently began in Wuhan, iirc, which I understand is a large university city with many ties to Uk?
Best not to chance it - Spanish Flu was most lethal for the Twenty and Thirty somethings who should have been the fittest and strongest members of the population.Writing, as I am, from Hong Kong, most of us are keeping a wary eye on events over the border. There isn't any great concern at the moment, however this weekend marks lunar new year, traditionally a time to visit family. Annually it marks the largest migration of people with up to 400m people likely to be travelling over the period. I remember pictures from last year of 100,000 people crowded into one train station in mainland China, a situation perfect for the spread of disease (particularly so in a country that regards spitting in public as an inalienable right).
I have suggested to my wife that we keep an open mind about sending her and the kids back to Japan for a spell if it spreads in a big way - although flu normally only kills the weakest and/or those with other health problems my youngest is only 4 so better to be prepared I suppose.
Advice gladly taken from any health professionals on here and a bottle of whisky to @Magic_Mushroom if he reserves us first class seats on the first C-17 back to Blighty
Yes, just seen on my feed.Here we go:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first U.S. case of coronavirus linked to an outbreak in Wuhan, China.globalnews.ca
We get a lot here in L.A - Measles out break this week and San Diego has some very interesting Hepatitis deaths.I was only half listening to it the other evening so don't take this as gospel, but the local US news might have mentioned a couple of cases have arrived in the US.
We could do with a good approaching Walking Dead level pandemic to clear out all the chaff who have had their existences extended by NGO's and St. Bob. It would certainly slow down global warming. I have noticed a few reports of simple third world type diseases popping up and being on the increase in the US, stuff like measles.
I am seriously surprised there is not more what with all the homeless on the streets. I don't know why the State does not just stick up some huge tent city out in the Ulu for them instead of them littering the streets. Was not impressed with Venice Beach in the slightest, shan't be going back there.We get a lot here in L.A - Measles out break this week and San Diego has some very interesting Hepatitis deaths.
Its against their civil rights - besides, the pan handling money will be less/further from places to steal/drug dealers etcI am seriously surprised there is not more what with all the homeless on the streets.

Your world ending plagues do not distinguish wheat from chaff.
That would be the fault of the anti-vaxxer movement. Another group of knuckle draggers that needs to be removed from the gene pool.
Just had it on the news: over 400 cases, 9 deaths, more than a dozen of those infected are health workers caught up in it while working. In China where it kicked off there are several cases in Beijing, it has travelled to a Thailand, South Korea, Japan and has now been found in Seattle, USA.Yes, just seen on my feed.

The clowns just kill their own kids, the anti-vaxxers are probably killing thousands. The recent Samoa measles outbreak is an interesting case in point although it has to be said that the crisis wasn't helped by the stupid nurses that killed two kids to begin with.Angry parents, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish group and anti-vaccine celebrities rallied to outmatch one of the state’s most powerful elected leaders.www.nytimes.com
I don't know who to hate more, the antivaccers who will suddenly believe in the modern day health system by running to a hospital when they fall ill, or the clowns who will try and treat the disease with essential oils and prayer.
Suppose it should be the essential oil nuts, they often end up killing their kids by doing this shit.

M-K-T is a Tibetean colony in Delhi. Many Tibeteans suffer from T.B. I always mask up in Delhi, especially in this place.
Morning @smeg-head,I would have thought everyone masked up in Delhi due to the amount of
faecal, diahorrea, shit lying about everywhere. India is a fecking disease in limbo! (Yes, I have been there). How the inhabitants survive beats me.
