    You're right.
    Analogy with cancer sums up the danger: if the tumor is discovered early, it does not spread.
    I live in southern Brazil.
    My state already has almost 50 suspicious cases and my city already has 1 confirmed case.

    Are people in doubt not even bothering to listen to advice being given? So you folks are defying every medical professional and expert in the world and deciding you know better. Why, exactly?

    In Brazil, even with a dumb president, the flu vaccination campaign will be advanced by one month, it will be in April, so the initial symptoms will not cause so much confusion, as doctors will have discarded the 3 most dangerous flu viruses. If elderly people show symptoms, they will be treated almost as confirmed cases.

    IMO Idolising a politician is a dangerous path and you will likely end up disappointed You should be naturally critical toward any head of government. They can always do better. Even Churchill had flaws and made mistakes.

    I don't think anybody said anything about idolizing a politician. All I said was I supported the way he's handling the situation yet there are other posts in this thread saying I'm an ignorant parrot that have not been removed, yet mine was. :confused:

    You understand that in a country with a population of almost 1.4 billion people which needs fresh meat protein, the probability of viruses mutating increases exponentially, right?
    I imagine it is a genetic vulnerability in that region of Asia, which facilitates compatibility with animal mutated viruses.
    You don't need Mr Evil to make viruses and bacteria to evolve into super viruses and super bacterias, nature is perfectly capable of doing this without human intervention.

    Trump has suspended travel from Europe to the U.S.
    Probably the same will happen with Asian countries, so E3 would be empty, with no studios or big brands.
    Irony is a insatiable sluuuut! ;)

    Yep, if it's gotta be done it's gotta be done. Safety first.

    And the safety came just a few hours after the leak of information about the White House's negligence in the past 2 months.
    Flawless timing!
    If it hadn't taken so long, maybe it would have E3.
    Now you know who to blame. ;)

    It's okay tho the cases are going to go to zero in just a bit.

    No, I blame the CDC/leadership honestly. I can't believe we weren't prepared for testing and quarantining this. We have all these pharmaceutical companies in the US and we pay nearly double per capita in healthcare costs and yet SK tested nearly 10x the number of people we have.

    This thing was in China for weeks before it came here and we were utterly unprepared and the people in charge basically wrote the whole thing off "will go to zero" in a bit. frack that. The level of unpreparedness is insane to me and this isn't even a particularly bad virus. Imagine a bio-engineered attack? We'd be ******.

    Wrong, wrong and wrong.
    So because they are old people or have health issues, their deaths don't count? What world do you live in?

    E3 is the smallest side effect.
    And no, I'm not discussing politics, I'm opining about the risk that US society was exposed.
    Neglecting epidemic risk for election reasons is too low.

    Probably in a country without a public health system, where medicines are very expensive and there are no free annual vaccination campaigns for the entire population. :(

    Flu "vaccines" are a big part of the problem, as are anti-biotics (which were obsolete over 30yrs ago).

    ^ This 1000%

    and a compoundin issue is that key components are in short supply because Western nation preparedness for pandemics has been set aside in exchange for WAR FUNDING.

    I keep hearing people at work calling the coronavirus a hoax.... I'm actually worried more about the people I work with, than I am the virus.....
