    I for one am not worrying.
    Its spread to the west seems very slow.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

      The incubation period is long enough that we could have a bunch of infected that don't know if yet. This got out on 12/08/2019 and it didn't really start hitting the news until a week and a half ago.

          Yeah, it's EXACTLY the same logo (up to color). No way it's real!

            Yeah, I mean it's not like China is notorious for blatant copyright, trademark, and patent infringement or anything.

              Right? It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy, or some shit.
              Being correct on the Internet is orders of magnitude easier than being correct in the Universe. Perhaps we should all concentrate more on the latter...

                Sounds like a fun Saturday night, to me.

                  I love how they can barely get half of their stolen tech to work. If you want to make a Chinese nationalist seethe, ask them how that gen 5 fighter jet engine is coming along...

                    It's not only real, it was first reported back in the summer.

                    So, all those reports and chatter from past June are really funny now.

                    And it turns out this isn't the only Asian health industry company using the logo. Some contract graphic designer out there is laughing their ass off.

                    Here's a Vietnamese skin care clinic using the actual Umbrella logo.

                      3 to 4 weeks is a pretty long time. -3,554 reported infected, 131 reported dead.

                      A former Harvard epidemiologist said he estimated only 5% have been diagnosed in Hubei.

                      Compare that to two weeks ago when it was about a hundred people reported diagnosed.

                      Judging by those numbers I'd say the US isn't even close to shifting into 2nd gear on this.

                      Please note: I'm not saying it will be a doomsday plague or anything. Honestly It's only been two months and the CCP aren't reporting recoveries. Even if they did, who would trust them? What I am saying is that it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better and you can count on a lot of people with compromised or for whatever reason weaker immune systems will be in serious trouble. The rest of us will probably be OK even if we get it. Probably but taking precautions anyway is a good idea.

                        Meh, so far the only cases in the US have been to that city in China, when we actually see one in the US from someone that didn't travel to China will I worry about it. Fuck its not even spreading that fast in a population dense city where people don't respect personal space at all. Where respiratory issues are already terrible, and where public health has its own challenges.
                        It will not be some doomsday plague like the Spanish flu, it will die out with a whimper in the west.

                              Australia is going to evacuate 400-600 of our citizens out of Hubei province and isolate them on Christmas Island for 14 days before they are allowed back in (pending health checks I’d guess).

                              My friends and family aren’t in the province and are well, they’ll return via their normal commercial flights.

                              Schools, pools, workplaces in Aus have already been sending out updates to the community, have asked for self policing and those flagged by the health authorities need clearance to return to work/school. It is being handled well I think. Unfortunately there have been racist Facebook posts and spam emails about ‘suburbs to avoid’ and similar bs, people are so stupid.
