Also on that site:

Health: more than 95% of human beings do not wash their hands on a regular basis

https://www.fayerwayer.com/2020/02/salu ... ado-manos/

:( :( :( :( :(
yea and of those 5% that do, most do it wrong.

like just water will kill something like 60 to 70% of of the bugs.

a quick rinse with soap, will get to around 75%.

but to get near 99% the soap needs about a full 20 seconds sitting on the surface.

here is another vector.

china is literally requiring banks to launder their money. they are also destroying cash and reissuing new notes.

Brings new meaning to the term money laundering. Should be a huge boost for bitcoin currencies.

58 million residents in Hubei in indefinite quarantine after an updated directive Sunday, only one person from the household is allowed out to get supplies once every three days.
Global supply chains in chaos with everyone from Apple to auto makers scrambling to prevent shortages which are inevitable, tourism plummeting worldwide, postal service from China suspended to some countries, international trade and container shipments in limbo, airline chaos as flight routes taken out.
Those are just some headlines from last 24 hours.

Meanwhile in Chile , headlines range from the sanctions colocolo will face after idiots threw fireworks onto the pitch or perhaps what security precautions will the song festival at Viña see next week.

At least 13 Americans among those rescued from the cruise ship tested positive:

As an anecdote, I have a buddy that works and lives in Singapore and I've talked to him this weekend. There are shortages on grocery shops for multiple items already due to people stockpiling supplies for the months to come, and there's fear that this will become a pandemic. Nice.

think term "pandemic" should have been applied several pages back.

the WHO has proven to be a bunch of political wankers, sucking china's tit.

https://cnnphilippines.com/world/2020/2 ... clid=lwAR2

the only reason they give for not using it is they are afraid of upsetting someone.

guess what?

too late.

WHO is saying they want to see a "efficent transmission" outside of china. well, that has already happened in multiple countries and multiple cases, and most people are not even being tested for it, anywhere, even when it is suspected.

so, the cdc of china, is saying the virus is 20 times deadlier than previous thought, with a 2.3% death rate. I am still guestimating it is closer to 3%, just based on the spotty but fairly consistent data that can be gleamed from various reports.

everyone is saying the cruise ship quarantine failed. no shit. like 1200 people have been tested, and nearly half are infected. many now confirmed, have no symptoms at all.

the medical director of a wuhan hospital has died from it. he was 51 years old.

if you can't keep your medical staff safe, you are not in control of this outbreak.

Tokyo Marathon was cancelled due to fear of the virus:

The Olympic Games are going to be in a few months. I wonder if they'll be cancelled as well.

so they are letting all those passengers in japan off the cruise ship.

so, their quarantine worked like this.

lets start with a few cases.

lock everyone up for several weeks in close proximity, with limited protective measures, so it can spread throughout the ship's 3700 people.

then let's test only about a 1/3, and confirm about half of those or 500 people have it, to make sure the bug has a good foothold. especially that there are at least 40 testing positive that have no symptoms. Don't want it to be obvious who has it.

now, let's let them all off, give them a contact number if they get sick, and send them on their way. many that will then travel to all corners of the globe, including Latin Americans.

I think that is called a petri dish, not a quarantine.

They keep calling the handling of this outbreak by China it's "Chernobyl" moment, but this might be another "Hiroshima moment" for Japan.

I call it a "Hiroshima moment", because of the story of the day the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, there had been a prior scheduled military parade through the center of the city (think I have seen photos of it). The military and city officials went forward with the parade right through the center of the city rubble, with thousands of dead and dying all around them as if nothing had happened just a few hours before. Thus, a "Hiroshima moment".

There is just sufficient time before the start of the Olympics, and the arrival of thousands of athletes and spectators from every country in the world, to really light a fire under this outbreak outside China.

Most countries are requiring them to go through another 14 day quarantine after leaving the as clearly the ship quarantine didn't work. Cruise ships are notorious for spreading outbreaks, norovirus and the like, spread like wildfire on cruise ships, either way it was an epic failure on the part of Japan
