    Bring back SARS.
    That's nutin.

    Didja forget Ebola, and the Hot Zone?

    Plus, I once got a case of scabies on my nethers,

    After a prolonged conversation with a young lady with some knife fight scars from the Panama Canal zone.

    Taught me two lessons, that.

    One of which is don't delay with getting Kwell lotion, cause it don't matter how much chlorine they put in the pool, that don't work.

    And the other wouldn't translate well to an electronic forum.

          Harvard epidemiologist Doctor Eric Ding quotes on the new virus.

          HOLY MOTHER OF GOD - the new coronavirus is a 3.8!!! How bad is that reproductive R0 value? It is thermonuclear pandemic level bad - never seen an actual virality coefficient outside of Twitter in my entire career. I’m not exaggerating... #WuhanCoronovirus #CoronavirusOutbreak

          2/ “We estimate the basic reproduction number of the infection (R_0) to be 3.8 (95% confidence interval, 3.6-4.0), indicating that 72-75% of transmissions must be prevented by control measures for infections to stop increasing...

          3/ ... We estimate that only 5.1% (95%CI, 4.8-5.5) of infections in Wuhan are identified, and by 21 January a total of 11,341 people (prediction interval, 9,217-14,245) had been infected in Wuhan since the start of the year. Should the epidemic continue unabated in Wuhan....

          4/ we predict the epidemic in Wuhan will be substantially larger by 4 February (191,529 infections; prediction interval, 132,751-273,649), infection will be established in other Chinese cities, and importations to other countries will be more frequent. Our model suggests that..

          5/ travel restrictions from and to Wuhan city are unlikely to be effective in halting transmission across China; with a 99% effective reduction in travel, the size of the epidemic outside of Wuhan may only be reduced by 24.9% on 4 February. Our findings are...

          6/ ...critically dependent on the assumptions underpinning our model, and the timing and reporting of confirmed cases, and there is considerable uncertainty associated with the outbreak at this early stage. With these caveats in mind, our work suggests that...

          7/ a basic reproductive number for this 2019-nCoV outbreak is higher compared to other emergent coronaviruses, suggesting that containment or control of this pathogen may be substantially more difficult.”!!!! #wuhanvirus #CoronavirusOutbreak #ChinaCoronaVirus ...

          8/ ... SUMMARY: so what does this mean for the world??? We are now faced with the most virulent virus �� epidemic the world has ever seen. An R0=3.8 means that it exceeds SARS’s modest 0.49 viral attack rate by 7.75x — almost 8 fold! A virus that spreads 8 faster than SARS...

          9/ ...cannot be stopped by containment alone. A 99% quarantine lockdown containment of Wuhan will not even reduce the epidemic’s spread by even 1/3rd in the next 2 weeks. Thus, I really hate to be the epidemiologist who has to admit this, but we are potentially faced with...

          10\ ... possibly an unchecked pandemic that the world has not seen since the 1918 Spanish Influenza. Let’s hope it doesn’t reach that level but we now live in the modern world �� with faster ✈️+ �� than 1918. @WHO and @CDCgov needs to declare public health emergency ASAP!

          11/ REFERENCE for the R0 attack rate (reproductive coefficient) of 3.8 and the 99% containment models come from this paper: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…

          12/ What is the typical R0 attack rate for the seasonal flu in most years? It’s around an R0=1.28. The 2009 flu pandemic? R0=1.48. The 1918
          Spanish Flu? 1.80. This new #WuhanCoronavirus reproductive value again? R0=3.8. (Flu reference:

          Estimates of the reproduction number for seasonal, pandemic, and zoonotic influenza: a systematic review of the literature

          The potential impact of an influenza pandemic can be assessed by calculating a set of transmissibility parameters, the most important being the reproduction number (R), which is defined as the averag…

          https://bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.c...71-2334-14-480


          13/ ...and it gets even worse, the Lancet now reports that the coronavirus is contagious even when *no symptoms*: specifically: “crucial to isolate patients... quarantine contacts as early as possible because asymptomatic infection appears possible”!

          Doctors warn China coronavirus carriers may show no symptoms of illness

          CAT scan revealed signs of pneumonia on 10-year-old Shenzhen boy’s lungs even though he had no outward signs of infection.

          https://www.scmp.com/news/china/soci...ow-no-symptoms

          14/ Let’s pretend the 3.8 estimate is too high (there’s unpublished estimates of 2.5). even if this virus’s R0=2.5, that’s still 2x higher than seasonal flu’s 1.28 (ref above), and higher than 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic of 1.80 that killed millions. So 2.8 is still super bad folks

          I'm now calling dibs on the entire state of Texas while the Ghost Colorado Free State dukes it out with the Gonzo New Republic of Las Vegas.

          Edit: And of course this mother fucker had to reference Spanish Flu. So what I'm getting isn't that the virus itself is especially lethal, it's just incredibly contagious.

                          So it's insanely contagious with a long incubation period and can be spread before symptoms hit. Yup. This is gonna get bad.

                            That's nothing. I got the clap once from a smoking Australian lassie and it took 2 weeks to get antibiotics after symptoms hit. I was pissing razor blades.

                              Turn on the closed captions. If what this guy says is accurate then this is going to get pretty rough.

                                Haha, this is going viral, no pun intended:



                                Allegedly, RLSW is the firm which stole the virus and let it leak.

                                For the uninformed, the red version is the logo of Umbrella Corporation, which is the fictitious company in the Resident Evil franchise which unleashes zombies on the world.
                                Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.
