Most people on the planet knows about the Coronavirus that is currently active in several places over the world with the majority of the cases being in China ( https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/world/asia/china-wuhan-coronavirus-maps.html ). As of this post there was just over 900 dead and 40000+ infected around the world.

In general the virus seems to be be most harmful to people with weakened immune systems which makes sense. This seems to be a airborne virus that has a gestation period of almost 5-10days before you start showing symptoms. Right there that is the toughest part about this virus is detecting it, because once you show symptoms you have already may have spread it to many people you have come in contact with.

Obviously this is causing panic in certain parts of the world, I have seen a few leaked videos coming out of China with streets just empty in Wuhan, and Wuhan has several million people. I have read reports were people are barricading possibly infected people in their homes and people are being gathered up.

I know my biggest question is how did this virus come to be? Because according to the CDC this is a NEW virus. I doubt highly it was from a fish market as early reports stated. There is a few conspiracy theories out there, especially since Wuhan has a Viral Institute there. There has been leaked reports that possible infected is a lot higher than what is being stated by the press....

According to the news they are averaging 500 cases a day...  that's a lot in my opinion... because who knows who these people may have interacted with before they were diagnosed.... because the big issue in spreading this is the fact that it possibly airborne

Its getting a lot of news here in the USA, but the impact of the virus here is basically nothing. Countries and China have done a pretty decent job about locking down the country. Do you have any thoughts, theories or concerns about the Coronavirus? I have my suspicions about this one, a new virus that has spread quiet quickly they we really don't know much about.....

Reports I've seen from certain sites indicate the virus has been altered, specifically DNA from the AIDS virus has been artificially spliced to four separate locations within the sequence. I've also seen reports showing the total deaths at a little over 35K. 

Does it make sense that the government there would shut down its economy and quarantine 400 million people over 900 deaths? 

This has all the markings of a bio-weapon that was accidentally released before it could be completed, hence the lack of an antidote and the reaction we are seeing. I so hope I am wrong on this.

Not seem any mention of bio weapons but I doubt the chinses are telling us the whole story and the hysterics from the media is not helping.

I can't express in words how much I agree with that!

All I'd say is be very careful where you get your news and views. The internet is fast turning into a cesspit!

 

On the positive side - the world can only support about a billion people, so we need to lose 6-7 billion.

There are a lot of questions that need to be answered. I also have heard there was some issues with the biological makeup of this virus. There is over 11mil people in Wuhan, that's more than the whole Northeast of the USA for the most part. We probably have more deaths in that same time span from non-virus means and we wouldn't cease operations, travel or whatever over 900 dead.... there is something wrong.

I have seen some pretty serious pictures.... why all the hype and media attention? CDC estimates that there is 12000 to 60000 deaths per year for the flu. We just have commercials about getting flu shot every year... so why is China shutting borders, shutting down schools, closing factories and creating hospitals at a mass rate.

This was more than likely something that got out and no one wants to admit it because the Chinese people would want someones head.

Some more information coming from the "fight club" of the internet. Granted a lot of what they publish is questionable but their latest article looks like it may have some substance to it. Basically they are claiming that there a lot more dead than being reported by corroborating with crematorium operators. They also claim that the government there is going out of its way to capture and punish anyone that questions the official numbers and narrative. Coming from a place with a "social score" for its citizens, I can't lend any credibility to the Chinese authorities, their numbers, or anything related as to the source of the virus.

What was that saying? "If it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck... it's probably a duck"

Interestingly enough, the Chinese have reclassified some cases and are now reporting a much higher total number of cases and deaths. Meanwhile the U.S. gov't is beginning to doubt the Chinese numbers...

Well they could have just read a little or watched videos on the internet to figure that out.

I been hearing stories about how they classify sick people 'for the numbers' where they don't actually count them as infected until they show symptoms or pass a test that takes days to show results. That can be a problem, especially if more and more people are catching it and passing it. Nevermind that now they are saying it can take up to 24 days to show symptoms. The daily death toll doubled to over 250 dying in one day.

Of course China is embarrassed any government would be. But they really need to come clean and allow the nations of the world to help them, because if this gets worse for them and the world finds out they were really hiding things from everyone their whole country will suffer huge economical and social fallout. 

China is jailing people who are trying to get information out. They don't understand how this makes them look to outsiders looking in.... it just screams cover up. I hope they can get this under control because the press is just plastering this all over and amping up the populous.

That I believe is the result of an autocratic form of government married with the Chinese penchant of "saving face"

When perception and appearances matter more than lives, the result can get ugly and things can easily spiral out of control. A serious change in strategy is warranted here, however I do not think that the authorities have the foresight or intestinal fortitude for that. It is truly a pity that lives are being cut short and I am saddened by this state of affirs
