Corona virus outbreak

Post by fwiw » Sat Jan 25, 2020 7:33 am

There is an interesting informative thread from an Ebola expert






I also stumbled on this, but I see no way to determine quickly if this is genuine information or just fake news


... just my opinion, for what it's worth

One of my Chinese friends said three cities are quarantined so people can't go in or out!!!
Never heard something like this except in history (plage).

First twitter thread is associated with the US Govt. CDC, likely reliable.
Second twitter thread? No way to verify source, I wouldn't give it credence.

I just received a similar report (albeit more personal) from a friend of a friend who is stationed in China, describing catastrophic conditions

Protective face masks are selling out; hard to find in China.

Do we have the technolgy to create these viruses in a lab?
Or in other words can artificial mutation be performed in a lab?
Can this be that bad?
What about countries like India with a very large population?

Is the following video fake, in your opinion?

We also face a new threat. The next epidemic has a good chance of originating on a computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus or a contagious and highly deadly strain of flu. So, the point is that we ignore the strong link between health security and international security at our peril. Whether it occurs by the hand of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists show through their models that a respiratory-spread pathogen would kill 30 million people in less than a year. And there is a reasonable probability of that taking place in the years ahead.

Tashi Delek! Happy Losar, year of the rat!
I was still thinking on the structure of the virus, just 3 proteins there... And so I saw that even though the shape of it resembles the solar corona, that it does not have a plasma membrane. I’m not referring here to the concept of plasma as in “plasma tv” but at least there be some fluid within it as in “saliva” at the least. And then that even though it looks like a piggybank (leave the sun out!), it does not store any fluid within. It causes the inflammation, the fluid, to be outside itself. It produces but without retribution. So that might be a goal for the virus if it would have any head to evolve as a form of life in samsara. Yes, I tried practicing compassion with the virus. If I did not succeed, I tried.

Dr. Pres. Donald Trump will be teaching us on the coronavirus today at 6pm ET. :rolleye:

Of course, CDC staff is only volunteering until they'll be deported to their countries.
Because "it's Donald's world". :jumping:

Let us watch! Let the Russians watch! Hey, why not? Let everyone watch! :bow:
