I sure as shit don't trust the numbers China is giving us, and combined with an incubation period of up to two weeks (and apparent infectivity during the incubation period), this could get out of control very fast.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the new coronavirus strain has been analyzed and found to contain significant amounts of genetic material from HIV?

Is there any truth to the rumor that Wuhan is one of the sites where the ChiComs constructed a slightly illegal biological warfare lab, despite having signed the 1972 treaty against biological warfare?

Because I've got this mental image of the workers in a biowar lab opening up their Li'l Frankenstein(tm) brand Biological Warfare & Genetic Engineering Kit (only $99.99 at Harbor Freight this week!) and then managing against all odds to call up something which they cannot put down.

I've also got this mental image of one or more of the lab workers stealing everything that wasn't bolted down and selling it out the back door in between sixteen-hour shifts rinsing out non-reusable, non-sterlizable plastic petri dishes into the municipal sewers because opening up a new crate of them would have cost a nickel. Do you suppose some kind of incubator got stolen and sold to a street vendor who converted it into a rat, bat, cat, and monkey rotisserie? Mmm, mmm good!

A top health official in Ohio estimated on Thursday that more than 100,000 people in the state have coronavirus, a shockingly high number that underscores the limited testing so far.

Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton said at a press conference alongside Gov. Mike DeWine (R) that given that the virus is spreading in the community in Ohio, she estimates at least 1 percent of the population in the state has the virus.

Basically due to the long incubation time it was spreading unnoticed through the country for almost a month, and Europeans travel a lot more than Chinese hillbillies.

>Although it’s too early to be certain, there is growing consensus among scientists that fatal cases of coronavirus have not, in fact, hit Italy “quickly”. Scientists we’ve spoken to believe that the virus circulated unnoticed in the country from at least mid-January – thriving because so many of the infected had no symptoms at all, or only mild symptoms like a cough and a mild temperature. This is consistent with recent research suggesting that the virus can be spread by people who do not yet show any symptoms.

>“At the moment, it looks like the outbreak already started in early January, so it had time to grow to a considerable size,” says Christian Althaus, a computational epidemiologist at the University of Bern. “The initial infected cases can be missed and the virus can spread freely.”

ISIS has issued a travel advisory for Europe to its fighters due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, asking fighters to suspend travel to the region for terror attacks.

The latest edition of the terror group's newsletter, Al-Naba, calls on its fighters to "stay away from the land of the epidemic," Homeland Security Today recently reported.

"The healthy should not enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it," the editors of the newsletter stated.

The newsletter also offered militants advice on how to avoid getting infected, including "cover the mouth when yawning and sneezing" and "wash the hands before dipping them into vessels." There's a full-page graphic on the back cover that cites Islamic texts for "directives to deal with epidemics."

The terror group's newsletter has been following the novel coronavirus pandemic closely, reporting on the spread of the virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, since the beginning of 2020.

These are the same (((people))) [and I'm calling out all of them regardless of race or religion, you don't have to be jewish to be greedy] who will constantly raise the alarm, saying there's danger everywhere and we must all turn to them in order to save us. They've gone by many names: elite, fascists, tyrants.

Vice President Wallace wrote in the New York Times on April 9, 1944, "The really dangerous American fascist,... is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power."

He went on to add, "They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjugation."

>Naturally the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.

I would think that it's highly relevant news on a forum dedicated to firearms, and such particularly affected by firearms laws. What this means, is that there is currently no way to legally buy a gun in the state. And since such businesses are currently closed, you can't buy ammo either, except from Walmart. The Democrats in every other state that they have any control over will soon implement this exact protocol there. No more buying guns, no more buying ammo- for as fucking long as they say. It could be 18 months before it's over if they damn well please, and in that time they can ban whatever they like.

I checked after I read your original post earlier. Three of the very largest gun shops in Cook County that I know about (which is in Illinois, which as you may have heard is isolating and in which "non-essential" businesses are shut down) are still open.

The three I checked were Maxon, Midwest Guns, and Shore Galleries

The first two:
*Extremely reduced hours, like Weekends only
*Pick up of pre-purchased guns only
*No ammo sales, except with sale of aforementioned pre-purchased guns
*Ranges closed

Shore galleries is still open, see pic related.

Actually that they are still are allowing use of their range pisses me off. Unless their "social distancing" enforcement includes mandatory N95 or better masks for every one who comes in. I feel this is super irresponsible.

Governments Haven’t Shown Location Surveillance Would Help Contain COVID-19 | By Adam Schwartz and Andrew Crocker March 21, 2020

Governments around the world are demanding new dragnet location surveillance powers to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. But before the public allows their governments to implement such systems, governments must explain to the public how these systems would be effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19. There’s no questioning the need for far-reaching public health measures to meet this urgent challenge, but those measures must be scientifically rigorous, and based on the expertise of public health professionals.

Governments have not yet met that standard, nor even shown that extraordinary location surveillance powers would make a significant contribution to containing COVID-19. Unless they can, there’s no justification for their intrusions on privacy and free speech, or the disparate impact these intrusions would have on vulnerable groups. Indeed, governments have not even been transparent about their plans and rationales.


In the United States, the federal government is reportedly seeking, from mobile app companies like Facebook and Google, large volumes of location data that is de-identified (that is, after removal of information that identifies particular people)... But re-identification of de-identified data is a constant infosec threat.


Disturbingly, most of the public information about government’s emerging location surveillance programs comes from anonymous sources, and not official explanations. Transparency is a cornerstone of democratic governance, especially now, in the midst of a public health crisis. If the government is considering such new surveillance programs, it must publicly explain exactly what it is planning, why this would help, and what rules would apply. History shows that when government builds new surveillance programs in secret, these programs quickly lead to unjustified privacy abuses.

MINSK, Belarus (AP) — They don’t chant, they don’t move, and they mostly wear the wrong colors.

They’re not even real.

Defending Belarusian league champion Dynamo Brest has started boosting its home crowds with mannequins in soccer shirts and adorned with the faces of “virtual fans” who bought tickets online.

Belarus is the last country in Europe still hosting professional sports in front of spectators amid the coronavirus pandemic, but attendances are shrinking as fans decide the stadium is too risky.

Fan boycotts have been announced at 10 of the 16 clubs in the top division. That includes Dynamo Brest and Champions League regular BATE Borisov.

Posting in here because it's a definite power grab attempt using COVID-19 as a smokescreen

Along with all the "uncertainty" about having people going out to vote and possibly causing a flare-up of the covid 19 virus, the idea was floated to have all-mail-in voting, which as the story goes, has been virulently opposed by republiscams, and Orange Fool Aid himself saying that if mail-in voting was made easy, Republicans would never win an election again.

Well, Republicans and the US Postal System have a history, you see...


The USPS is set to "run out" of money in September. Which is only on paper of course, but could be the final pretext to achieve what the aforementioned greedy creatures have been dreaming of for decades: privatization and monetization of public mail.

>Thousands of flag-waving, honking protesters drove past the Michigan Capitol on Wednesday to show their displeasure with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s orders to keep people at home and businesses locked during the coronavirus outbreak.

>As snow fell, others got out of their vehicles and raised signs, one of which read, “Gov. Whitmer We Are Not Prisoners.” Another said, “Michigander Against Gretchens Abuses.”

>Hours later, Whitmer shot back, telling reporters that the rally put health at risk.

>The “Operation Gridlock” protest was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition. The ripples were widely felt: Traffic was barely moving for miles in some areas of Lansing.

>“This arbitrary blanket spread of shutting down businesses, about putting all of these workers out of business, is just a disaster. It’s an economic disaster for Michigan,” coalition member Meshawn Maddock said. “And people are sick and tired of it.”

>Whitmer, a Democrat, extended a stay-home order through April 30 and has shut down schools and businesses deemed non-essential. The governor acknowledged the pain but said the restrictions were necessary to stop the spread of the coronavirus, which causes a respiratory illness that has killed more than 1,900 Michigan residents and overwhelmed hospitals in the Detroit area.

>Whitmer said she was “really disappointed” to see protesters close together without masks.

>“I saw someone handing out candy to little kids barehanded,” the governor told reporters. “People are flying the Confederate flag, and untold numbers who gassed up on the way here or grabbed a bite on the way home. We know that this rally endangered people. This kind of activity will put more people at risk and, sadly, it could prolong the amount of time we have to be in this posture.”

>During the rally, Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield, who has urged Whitmer to amend her orders, waved an American flag from a window at his Capitol office.

>Full Coverage: Virus Outbreak
The protest drew an estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people, about 150 of whom demonstrated on the Capitol steps or main lawn, said Michigan State Police spokeswoman Shanon Banner, who said demonstrators were peaceful. There was an arrest when one protester assaulted another. Police did not ticket anyone for violations of the governor’s orders.

>“The majority of demonstrators remained in their vehicles, and most of those who were on foot were practicing social distancing,” Banner said.

>Four sheriffs in the northwestern Lower Peninsula called Whitmer’s orders a “vague framework of emergency laws” that are frustrating citizens. Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich said people don’t understand why they can’t take a child fishing in a motorboat but they can use a kayak.

>“We’re trying to keep the peace with people. ... The economy is coming apart in northern Michigan. People are upset,” Borkovich told The Associated Press. “People are frantic to get back to work. They have been very edgy.”

I don't feel like putting in effort now to describe how foolish I think these people are. Darwin awards all around soon (probably). And dipshits need to learn how to properly wear a plate carrier.

Probably hugely inflated. It's pretty much public knowledge at this point that the Ferengi and their puppets are doing everything they can to maximize the economic and psychological impact of the Chink cold, to the point of pressuring medical personnel to tag every single stiff as a kaze death, regardless of the actual cause. Another example is that "muh mass grave" in NYC, which apparently turns out to have been standard practice for e.g. the indigent for ages, and had basically nothing to do with the Chink cold.
