I heard they thought it originated from wuhan due to eating exotic animals, but it turns out that its actually a man made virus that got "leaked out of a lab" they only used that animal excuse because china had a stereotype for eating anything & everything….. :/

I'm just gonna wear a sick mask and carry hand sanitizer with me everywhere at this point. I just got over a small flu, I dont need this virus right now (or ever).

Strange idea to re-route through busiest airports. No symptoms for 14 day so multiple exposure is inevitable. Everyone that came in close contact for those two weeks were exposed. Including medical staff.

One day after last post and coincidentally the WHO decides to do their job and the 72 hour CA, quarantined will be held for 2 weeks, so these Authorities “get it” there must be a tremendous amount of pressure and fear that slows their toughs and decisions and I don’t envy them but it is the life they chose and it’s time to make the decisions that will keep them up at night these will be hard times, we will be tested and we will have loss, there is not much more a spectator of ones own life can do… Read more »

Now one whole week gone and still the WHO refuses to admit the obvious and take action maybe they’re playing a Deadpool of 100,000 infected before they decide to declare the obvious but we know we have a global pandemic well in progress, recent years of political reporting has proven we cannot trust the media and now it’s clear we cannot trust the the most powerful organizations of science and medicine because they are terrified and they are panicking all the while telling us not to panic, they are hypocrites, curious why potential infected from Wuhan sit in a California… Read more »

We shouldn't panic or over react, but instead, nuke the city of Wuhan now.

Oh that's great .let's setup 5 points of entry into the country for a deadly virus. 2 in the west, 2 in the east, and 1 in the center. Heaven forbid the reasonable precaution be taken and limit incoming from China to 1 airport.

Why they don’t isolate all people from China or don’t let them in airplane.

This disease is like nothing we've ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, there is panic by Chinese government already. This disease is communicable during gestation and many folks on these flights are already infected. If Wuhan is on lockdown, why are it's residents allowed to travel internationally?

Why are we still allowing them to leave China?? They should be quarentined there instead of risking and infecting the 327million people in the us.

Stop tripping over this virus it only attacks people who have weak immune systems which basically means only for babies and people of older age

Funny that it's in Washington State. Isn't that where Smallpox is rearing its ugly head because the health nuts of WA are refusing to vaccinate their kids? This is VERY dissimilar to that, but the fact that it is a disease outbreak in WA is an interesting parallel.

The boundary safety of the USA is recommended not to stay anywhere in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, central California (and north), and Nevada. Low risks are north east states, states that touch any of the states I just said not to be in, and the safest in calculations is Georgia.

Iv taken care of people with the Corona virus a few years ago and they were white Americans…don't know if they traveled overseas or not. We used droplet precautions no one made a big deal out of it. so the virus must have mutated into something far worse
