Nice one, gogogo. “How dare you!”

There does seem to be a huge number of cases growing out of religious communities of all faiths.
Correction: There does seem to be a huge number of infected congregants among various faiths. Religious communities do not necessarily behave the same.
Religion is so unhelpful.
That’s a matter of opinion, not fact.

Re the article: “Who was that masked man?”
That said, I’d love to see Taiwan take a seat in the U.N. as the Republic of Taiwan.
However, the PRC would probably launch an attack after issuing their veto. But Taiwan will probably never declare such republic as it (the loser) and the PRC (the winner) both espouse the “One China Principle”

If this virus has been circulating since the end of January if not earlier, why isn’t Tokyo in as bad shape as NYC? It’s population density is greater than NYC’s, it’s public transport system is as extensive and crowded as NYC’s and it has as many if not more visitors from China as NYC. I hope I live long enough to hear the definitive answer.

In january, the wise were already know the virus is dangerous, and prepared for it . In february, even the idiotsalso knowed that from the news around the world. Trump was worse than a idiot.
The wise? Like WHO? Like politicians such as Pelosi in the USA who considered use of the term “Wuhan Virus” to be racist in January. Give me a BREAK!

This Social Distancing and Lockdowns will probably work. We should implement this every winter when infectious diseases peak to save lives.
Are you out of your mind? A population is safest when most people have been exposed to a pathogen and developed immunity.
However, nothing has prepared me for the economic malaise and the extreme speed of change in society.
The greatest danger is not the virus, but the impact on those, the vast majority and that’s a fact, who survive it.
A full lockdown is useless and creates more problems.
Indeed. Death is inevitable. Most of us try to delay it, but it’s still there. Live with it.

I hope that photo of Ginza isn’t supposed to prove anything. Many of the people there have usually been Chinese tourists.

eclipsing China's official count
I see that many posters here are swallowing the CCP’s official line. Just don’t wash it down with aquarium cleaner.
If everything is peachy in Wuhan now, then why are the local police preventing Wuhan residents from leaving? To forestall spread of the contagion or anti-government, anti-Chinese Communist Party feeling?

I don’t know if I actually AM safer, but I FEEL so. Why? There is a decided lack of media driven hysteria here.

The virus is the result of our changing relationship with our habitat
I think the use of this word needs to be examined and especially its applicability questioned in this time of pandemic.
As the American newsman/commentator Paul Harvey was fond of saying, “It’s not one world.” People are NOT the same wherever you go.

Republicans continue to obstruct instead of working with democrats to assist the American people. Smh.
No. A deal that Senate Minority Whip Chuck Schumer praised as bipartisan was scrapped on the arrival of Nancy Pelosi.
Please, cut out the propaganda.

Conveniently forgetting that left wingers were the first to be locked up and beaten on the streets, in Nazi Germany.
Yes. Fascists of the left and right saw themselves locked in a life or death struggle since 1917. The Fascist right got the upper hand in Germany in 1933; the Fascist left in Russia in 1917. Both liquidated their rivals when they got the chance. (PS Howard Zinn didn’t devote a chapter to this.)

Sneezy: “We learned nothing: there are concentration camps on the border now.”
”Concentration camps”? Please define. The term is inflammatory as you well know. The association for the past 75 years has been with Nazi death camps. No, there are none of those on the border.
Nice try. No cigar.

There is a Chinese scholar by the name of Xu Zhangrun who wrote a very interesting response to this health crisis dated February 5, 2020. I urge all the look it up and read it. I read it in CHINAFILE.COM . He has since “disappeared”.

The way Trump is handling Iran,
The only thing Trump needs to do is photoshop and deephack the Ayatollah’s face and voice in “compromising” gay activities and he’ll be thrown off the roof of the tallest building in Tehran. Problem solved. Iranian people liberated.
