Have you bought your mask yet?

The Coronavirus.

What are your thoughts?
Are you getting nervous or is the whole thing blown out of proportion by the media?

For the first time in my life Iíve seen people walking around wearing masks here in Denmark. And Iím talking danish people, not the usual asian tourists.

Iím not panicing myself, because I donít believe thereís a whole lot I can do about it. But the more people with masks I see the more worried Iíll get. So far Iíve only seen a few tho. But itís still surreal.

I live in Ontario, Canada and there are about 10 confirmed cases here. Im not worried about it. If masks were issued and we were told to wear them, i would. From what i understand most people will have a mild case if they get it. Its the elderly with underlying conditions that could die from it. They should have a vaccine within a year.

Thatís a long time to wait for the elderly. Hopefully summertime will help.

I was going to start a topic about the virus. It's like something out of a Cronenberg movie. And it reminds me of Ghosts of Mars.



Also Doctor Block's self preservation line from Planet Terror comes to mind.

I do think we should be concerned. After all there was that doctor in China that knew it was coming and he still died. I believe he was in his thirties.

I've seen viruses in animals as well. Some of those are very dangerous. If you get it in your house you have to bleach down every surface. The virus can live for months if not years. It can kill animals quickly at times in a few days.

Right now in the United States we aren't being protective enough. Already stories are coming out about people not using enough protection. That weeks have gone by with people out there in public touching stuff, breathing on stuff, and passing it around.

I'm a little closer to ground zero...so I dunno if I've got a different take here, but...Seriously, China needs to stop shitting the bed with this kind of thing.
I mean just look at the last few pandemics...it wouldn't be a potential pandemic without China starting the fucking party, would it?

The mainlanders that visit/live over here in Australia don't integrate past about 20% of their population...
They don't respect public spaces.
Their kids piss in public.
They chain smoke everywhere, and spit on the ground constantly.
They're always the ones that send their kids to school coughing and bloody spluttering everywhere - something that my kid is sick from right now.
Their restaurants are always the first to get done for hygiene and food poisoning issues.
They are always the ones bringing in unsafe/contraband food items when they fly in...and they "no Engrish" their way into disregarding even the most simple of directives that are in place to yknow, keep everyone safe and healthy.
The very fact that some parts of their country have actual LAWS to stop them from over-breeding like retards because even their HUGE land-mass is hopelessly overpopulated to unsustainable points, speaks volumes.
It's very difficult to not see them as self absorbed, dirty, and disrespectful people.

There's been cases spread...they all originated in China. There continues to be new cases in/around airports even now...this is people being shitty human beings and just "I don't give a fuck"-ing the whole situation.

Their govt has been deliberately misleading with facts and figures as well, and there's no firm numbers on contraction vs deaths coming from them at all...it would appear that they've even tried to silence people from getting the information out there.

Yet a simple 2-3 week travel shut down, and a quarantine period for stock coming in from China just won't get done...because they throw money at it and basically own our weak-ass fucking sellout govt.

There's asian students being fucking fought for to get out of quarantine and head back to Australia...and then when they come back, now we have it here...this is a surprise to anyone?

Korea had the right idea when they shot down someone attempting escape after they'd been diagnosed.

I mean honestly...right now I'm just considering them as a bunch of fucking plague rats, and I honestly hope this does some well overdue population control.

Its not everyones fault...I understand a large part of the population is simply under the control of their own govt, in their own country, and only have access to the information and directives that are provided by what increasingly seems like a shady fuck of a system over there...but there is no way, that this should have become an international thing.
Massive failure that it did.

I'm not going to buy a mask...because if I get it, I get it...and my immunity is pretty good...I'm not really in the group that's effected much by death, neither is my wife of child...but I guarantee if I get it, I will be taking a leisurely stroll through Chinatown that day...touching and coughing on everything I can.

In closing, fuck them and their shady ass disrespectful selfish behaviour.
The innocent among them, I am not commenting on.
I'm talking about the assholes that brought it here and there, and continue to...because they put themselves above all others, and ignoring rules and regulations is just something they do all the fucking time.

I honestly believe SO many countries would have fucked this thing up before it got to half the problem it is now...not that other countries are comparatively known for starting pandemics.

I guess I'm racist now.

What do you mean they don't integrate past about 20% of their population?

Some of that post is hilarious though. It reminds me when I listened to the guy that turned around Singapore. He talked about how harsh the laws had to be because people were peeing in elevators. He said something like they installed cameras and then they would pee from outside the elevator. That's how wicked he said they were.

Strange too that recently I was driving past a gas station and I guess either the bathroom was out of order or they didn't have one. So broad daylight the guy was peeing next to a bush while I was waiting on a stop light.

Also it shouldn't be funny. But I did get a laugh that this coronavirus came from one of those meat markets. I assume it's like you see in the movies with animals everywhere and people chopping stuff. I get shivers when I see those as I think they are just asking for some kind of contamination. But Chef Ramsey has caught many restaurants asking for contamination. This is a good one.



Some of that is racial stereotyping though. But there was a news story a while back about cats being served as chicken or another meat in Chinatown. I didn't know why someone would do that. But then I read on wiki that many countries are ok with eating cats, dogs, and other domestic animals.

It's one of my guilty pleasures. I love watching Gwyneth Paltrow die.
