Kung Flu

It's already spread around the world, but only killed in China so far.

There have been markets like that in China for thousands of years, so why now are these deadly viruses coming out of China.

Guessing in the past they were more limited because there wasn't a lot of travel and whatnot

Wuhan meat market video; if you love dogs, cats, or health, do not watch.

I saw an Asian woman wearing a face mask on my evening commute yesterday.

It's probably fine and doesn't mean anything.

We're all going to be ok.

I saw pictures of men with facemasks, spears and axes blocking the roads to towns/villages around Wuhan keeping anyone from entering.

This one seems to be getting a very different reaction inside China than SARS did--or am I just not remembering? It feels like a lot more people have died than they want to admit.

Your right, the announced body count seems to increase several times a day. Don't forget SARs was pre-iphone and pre-internet China. They are probably worrying about saving face, not harming the tourist trade, or people shunning their container shipments.

I'm just sticking this here to make it easier to find later. Not to freak anyone out. This thing is still nothing compared to the seasonal flu.

The Wuhan market video was relabeled because it's actually Indonesian.

Sorry folks, fog of war. Chinese news video came out that showed a pristine food market... the truth is somewhere in between

Right, the seasonal flu kills 35,000 Americans every year.

The Chinese market in Wuhan has been sterilized too.

Kirk: They're animals.

Spock: Jim, there is an historic opportunity here.

Kirk: Don't believe them. Don't trust them.
