OK. Time to move to Madagascar.

As a plague Inc player, the 2 best places are usually Greenland and New Zealand if you want to survive.

I'm not too concerned yet. Have a few cases here too in Australia. It's a wait and see situation.

Woof.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).



Just checked and in 2017 in the US alone 55000 people died from Influenza and Pneumonia. Haven't seen any panic about that anywhere.

"The people who died were between ages 48 and 89, but the vast majority were at the top of that range and almost all of them had existing health conditions."

Totally shaking in my boots right now.

I wasn't a bit worried until I heard the two weeks of carry time, that's another 10 days or so before we start seeing the pre quarantine spread. It could have covered every landmass in that time with January flights and then the spring coming as it starts showing up on mass, it's guaranteed to be worse than swine flu at this rate. I'm quite concerned now, looks like this could turn into what we all feared swine flu would develop into and just at the worst timing, not just the seasonal traveling feom that shit hole but the actual season itself in the northern hemisphere.

You know that is different, Hundreds of people die each year from toaster related deaths but we have defences against that, it's called earthing the electricity but when toasters grow legs and actively start attacking people around you from the shadows and you're left with no known toaster defence, it's a different story.

I'd be a little more than just laughing it off as nothing...

Also, someone in their late 30s with no pre-existing health problems died. And given China is locking down almost 60 million people...

China is locking down 1.5 billion people every single day for decades now. Color me not impressed. Nothing in those articles you linked is in any way worrying to me. It's some kind of virus that spreads fast and has comparably mild symptoms. If I was worried about that I shouldn't be able to even leave my home because flu and cold season is coming and that shit also spreads fast and kills people. But this virus is new and sexy and a novelty, which is why so many bored privileged people are suddenly "concerned" about it. I won't be driven to hysteria by people who know exactly as little about that virus as I do.

Maybe I'll start to worry if it starts killing healthy young people in overseas developed countries. As of now I'm sure the Chinese government has killed more people in China this year than that virus. And that's a thing I'm way more concerned about.

2901 cases and 82 deaths doesn't sound that bad but the number is steadily growing. There are cases being reported ouside of china there are 5 cases now on the us.
