There is nothing wrong with starting with the fundamentals. I agree with her. There are some cynical people on this site.

Posted in: Japan urges citizens not to travel to China because of virus See in context

A Philippine friend of mine on Facebook just sent me this. Quote:

"Good news. Wuhans corona virus can be cured by one bowl of freshly boiled garlic water. Old Chinese doctor has proven its efficacy. Many patients has also proven this to be effective. 8 cloves of chopped garlic add seven cups of water and bring to a boil. Eat and drink the boiled garlic water, overnight improvement and healing."

I guess its a home remedy. I dont particularly believe it. As far as the article above's headline, yes, I would not travel to China at this time.

Posted in: China reports new cases as WHO declares global emergency over virus See in context

I wanted to compare the cases of flu virus and the coronavirus in the USA. Here is a quote from the CDC (Center For Disease Control):

CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.

So far there are six cases of coronavirus in the USA. There were 5 yesterday.

Wuhan food market :

The food market where the deadly virus surfaced offered a range of exotic wildlife for sale, including live foxes, crocodiles, wolf puppies, giant salamanders, snakes, rats, peacocks, porcupines, camel meat and other game.

Posted in: Japan confirms third case of coronavirus virus See in context

China did a good job obliterating the Wuhan food market. They should eradicate all similar food markets immediately. Learn from this China. You are effecting the whole world. I am nervous to be around Chinese people now sorry to say.

Posted in: Japan confirms 2nd new coronavirus infection See in context

I read that Wuhans food market has snakes in with the food being sold and that a virus jumped from the snake to people. That story is online. 1 moral could be keep snakes separate from real food.

Posted in: Ghosn's Japan lawyer: Questioning averaged 7 hours a day See in context

After hearing this I am glad he escaped. They interrogate the person for endless days until the person breaks. They cant rely on their own ability to prosecute. Japan has one for the worst justice systems I have heard of. Its better than Nazi Germanys peoples court though. There they had a 80% rate of executing the person. 99% conviction rate is totally against the Law of Averages. Its like a communist country in the old days where the person would win 98.3% of the vote.
