Deadly Coronavirus

Man, this shit is getting serious. Reminds me of SARS, but seems worse. Be safe if traveling to those countries.

I think it's the same kind as used to be a SARS virus - a few years ago, pharmaceutical companies made a lot of money from this panic.

The origin of 2019-nCoV is unknown at this time, but this type of virus is contracted via live host, such as a bat, or a camel.

Wonder how much more it will spread. It is in the US now - both LA and Seattle. So, it's going to move East fast.

China has quarantined entire cities... amazing. Zombie apocalypse in 3... 2... 1.... ?

Damn, dude. You need to leave her.

This is my pickup line for the night. "Hey, you look hot". Do you have coronavirus?"

That sucks. My daughter is in the same field of work although she's on the cardiac ICU floor.

But reading about this.....my first thought was of her safety. It's dangerous to go into a hospital these days!

Waiting for that two window to hit to see if any other people in Irvine contracted it from that other confirmed case.

I wonder how much impact this has had on Chinese restaurants in the area.

Xenophobia has been pretty sad to observe.
