Pretty much. I still firmly believe this is a lot of panic over something that isn't very frightening to begin with. It's only spread in poor countries or those with terrible healthcare. The U.S. could have it but most people will just hit up a hospital and they'll be fine.

IMO, it's only dangerous for the elderly and/or those who do not take care of themselves.

Japan just shut down their public schools for 5 weeks to keep their kids safe. Not sure how my relatives over there will do their entrance exams. O_o

At least two of those weeks are spring break so that is not so bad.

You should start shipping all of your possessions out to us now before you get sick. It will save us the time and expense of having to disinfect everything upon receipt. And be sure to wash your hands before you start.

Officially it has been in my girlfriend's city in IL for many weeks and un-officially in my town for about as long. They do not count persons under the age of 18 in the official infected count as that is a violation of some such. And I am still alive. I must be immortal baby!!

My Dad and his wife are International Flight Attendants. They've started wearing masks on flights now since even though the airline has canceled flights to China. In fact, my stepmom just got back from Milan which is the latest area with an outbreak.

I should probably tell you about the recent economic collapse in my life, all I have to share is debt and borrowed objects. More or less

Keep the debt. Borrowed objects are fine. I will open a post office box in another town in preparation for your shipment.

80% of deaths are elderly, frail, in some way immuno suppressed which could include an underdeveloped immune system that some who were born and lived in cities are known to have. Some people who also avoided vaccines their entire lives.

We dont know the medical background of those who are neither too young or too old in the ~6 years old to 65 year olds who were killed by this virus.

Damn the market is tanking tho... you day traders are gonna make bank once the idiots figure out they sold at the worst time.

Iran is in bad shape and they're faking the numbers in some attempt to make the situation look better. The vice president has it now too.

Russia has stopped some flights to and from Iran, but it's too late and they're not shutting them all. Russia will probably be next but Putin will fake the numbers too and so all these side countries will have outbreaks we won't get a good understanding about. Italy and South Korea will provide us with actual data worth using.

How does one person from a **** country, especially the one with some of the worst healthcare and some of the dirtiest people I've ever seen, counter my point?

Iran is absolutely fudging numbers and they've also done a piss-poor job at taking care of those who get sick. They can't manage to identify between military and civilian aircraft... Is anyone surprised?

Iran is pretty progressive modernized nation. It's not a **** country, as you're saying. And a soccer player sounds like a healthy young person with a decent cardio and respiratory system. If this killed her, that's not a good sign.

We got notice from our boss today that we need to make sure we have everything we need to work from home. There's been nothing official yet, and I'm sure it's just CYA. But...he made the point of reminding us to be prepared. We'll see what happens.

If anything good comes out of this for Iran... It's that it kills all their nut job leaders, and their people can finally have their say in things. I'm sure the old man is in a glass vault right now though.
