the number of people who regularly don't wash their hands after hitting the can @ work astounds me. They even do it when they know other people are in their. -.-

A complete overreaction like all the other recently announced cancellations. This will turn out to be nothing much. A politicized virus.

Take precautions but don't live in fear and don't let fear dictate your actions. Be kind to others and don't believe everything you hear on CNN/FOX/ABC or being spewed by the authorities.

This latest virus is another in a long chain that has been rolled out for many years now - H1N1, SARS, Ebola, Avian influenza, Zica, Bird flu, Swine flu etc... Recognize the patterns as they enforce and take from you a little bit more each time.

It's a strain of flu and no matter the strain it will kill people (the young and the elderly like coincidentally this one is doing). Ask yourself why the sensationalism and longevity when other strains of flu have killed more people in the past. What is it that they are after? What sort of societal changes do they want to reap? We are seeing evidence of this now and there will be more. Don't just blindly absorb what they are telling you.

They want to instill fear in the minds regardless of the reality.

I think the Pook and essanbee has this well in hand. Question everything!!

In a country of 1.4 billion people, only 3000 new cases in the last 21 days

its both serious, and being used as ammo against a looming presidential election. the final nail in the 4 year war, they see it as.

the people on social media hyping themselves into maniacal frenzies.. well, they have something to do that over every week now don't they? luckily, the internet still isn't real life. specially the social media side of it.

When the impeachment kerfluffle didn't have the desired effect , I was about certain this would happen.

Ah, for sure, I agree with you. The recession is gonna be fueled by the panic much more so than the disease itself.
