"All three samples reportedly tested positive. When the president heard the news, he reportedly confronted the WHO, then kicked the organization out of the country. " 😂 😂 😂

"As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases explodes across Africa, the creeping involvement of the WHO has made some leaders suspicious of the NGO. Tanzanian President John Magufuli was growing suspicious of the organization, so he reportedly decided to investigate whether the organization was as trustworthy and reliable as it claimed to be.

He played what the local press described as "a trick" on the organization: He sent the WHO samples of a goat, a papaya and a quail for testing."

October 18th 2019 Event 201 Pandemic Exercise brought to you by John Hopkins, World Economic Forum, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In the exercise it is a coronavirus.

What timing! You can't make this shit up.


The most surprising thing about coming back is to see the majority of Americans wearing masks (and it ain't Halloween and nobody is robbing the bank).

In Japan it is fairly normal to see people wearing masks on your daily commute even without a global pandemic going on.

Flew back to the States last week on one of the few remaining international flights.

It was eerie.

The airports were empty (stores/restaurants closed, no people).

The planes were empty.

The roads were empty.

It is much more shutdown here than in Japan.

@umad80 10 people a day in Chicago are shot to death with coronavirus.

Finished watching today's Trump briefing and it was glorious to see him finally limiting reporters to one question.

The best was when someone wanted to ask a second question for a colleague who couldn't be there and Trump goes "Who cares?"..."He should be here if he wants to ask a question."

"The Coronavirus will come and go.

But the government will never forget how easy it was to take control of your entire life. Control of every roadway, airline, sporting event, classroom, restaurant, church pew, grocery store and park bench.

And society praised it as 'The Right Thing To Do'"

Constitution Dies Of Coronavirus

I don't know where to laugh or cry at this one from the Bee.


I live and work in areas that are normally swarming with Chinese tourists.

Based on that, the numbers in Japan should be astronomical, but they aren't.

If people like Boris Johnson and Tom Hanks tested positive along with my friend and my son, who all are geographically separated and don't have any proximity relationship, then this virus is essentially everywhere.

There's one more thing I suspect to be true, the number of people who have been exposed/infected by it is much, much higher than confirmed cases.

If this is true, it would be a good thing because it would mean the death rate is way lower than what is being reported.

There's an episode in the Walking Dead, where they realize everyone is already infected with the zombie virus.

I suspect COVID-19 is like that.

Everybody is going to get it, but for most people it won't be a big deal.

That makes him the second person I know who tested positive.

The other person got to the shortness of breath phase (the real risk symptom), but then got through it without any hospitalizations or it getting worse.

He's one of the healthiest people I know (diet, exercise), but he had a recent injury that the doctors think may have lowered his immune system enough to enable the virus to take hold.
