Numbers back in January made obvious that this was extremely contagious - worse than SARs. One obvious fact back then - infected people are contagious long before symptoms exist. Such little facts made the threat obvious. And were only discussed by honest information sources.

Man makes mistakes. Most learning comes from first acknowledging and then learning from those mistakes.

We've heard that at least Bats and Pangolins can be carriers of the virus. Nothing makes Bats sick and no idea what can or can't make Pangolins sick.

Now they announced two Amur Tigers and three African Lions, in the Bronx Zoo have a dry cough and one Tiger tested positive. Of course any furry critter could spread the virus but they didn't definitely say big cats could contract the disease when exposed.

This makes me wonder if your pets are at risk of getting sick as well as making you sick?

Honey, where's kitty? Last I saw she was asleep in the baby's bassinet.

They already had a case of a dog in China testing "weakly positive" way back when. The dog even died--but it was also 17 years old and stressed because its elderly owner had passed away, so no one looked much further into it. The last time an animal was really implicated in spreading a virus, the Chinese government seized and slaughtered some 20 million chickens, so I get the impression they're just trying to keep animal transmission, to the extent that it exists, on a low profile. Won't do any good to traumatize an already devastated population by murdering their pets, nor would it help for those who are less attached to become afraid and suddenly start dumping their pets on the streets en masse.

You know what happens now, yeah?

We kill all dogs & cats, replace them with apes who revolt and put us in cages.

Not just dogs and cats, all pets except Bob Guccione's.

Just be sure to boil your dog soup for at least five minutes. To kill off the virus.

Huh? Sorry, with this virus going on I've been hanging out a lot in the Forbidden Zone.
