So the deputy health minister in Iran is himself infected it turns out, nothing like a bit of personal experience to know what he is talking about I guess. Here is shown in thr press conference saying Iran wasn't covering anything up, like some bad sitcom

one of the health monsters was on tv this morning, and was asked point blank about the itialian.

she dodged the question with a super vague, "all indications are negative so far and we are waiting for the lab to confirm that".

How fuck do you say it is negative, when you don't have the test results?

I was ready to boot the minister of health back when he started forcing women in futalefue to travel to Puerto Montt to have their babies. making women in labor, or just pregnant, travel 8 hours by mostly dirt road or get on a bush plane and fly (if they can fly) is just criminal. women have been having babies there for like 150+ years, but that ass decided it would be cheaper or something.

For some conspiracy theory fun:

Wuhan is the location of the largest BSL-4 in China.
https://www.nature.com/news/inside-the- ... LwY6-adIJQ

Scientists are amazed that it took just a week for China to do all of these things:
1. Identification
2. Sequencing
3. Sequencing of related virus in bats
4. Create diagnostic test
5. Serology
6. Virus isolation
7. Experimental validation of receptor

A Chinese researcher studying coronaviruses and with connections to the BSL-4 Lab in Wuhan was escorted from the premises of Canada's only BSL-4 lab by the RCMP in July for policy breaches.

Now that is is getting more news traction, I thought I'd bring it up again. :)

Tin Foil Hat News: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday warned that it expects the novel coronavirus to begin spreading in the U.S. at the community level, and that “disruption to everyday life might be severe.” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the agency’s director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases,said that she herself spoke to her family over breakfast on Tuesday and that while she feels the risk of coronavirus at this time is low, she told them they needed to be preparing for "significant disruption" to their lives.

would be helpful if any of our Portuguese speaking members could track down some news sources to confirm that.

My alleged Portuguese is pretty bad. like I can kind of read a news paper or follow a conversation. not really up to doing deep internet dives for specific info.

That's me, I guess. :-)

Yep, 1 coronavirus case in Brazil. It was a 61 y/o man that came back from a business trip in Italy.
