I didn't listen to the audio, but the text was just some political trash.

What is the definition of epidemic? I haven't found one yet, but a handful of people doesn't sound like an epidemic to me.

Corona is more deadly than the flu as a percent of people who contract it, but vastly fewer people contract it than the flu, and therefore your odds of dying from flu is vastly more probable than Corona. Why isn't the news talking about the flu pandemic? It's because we're used to it.

This isn't to say nothing should be done to slow the spread, but hysteria is not productive, and making this into a political issue speaks to the trashy nature of those willing to suspend rational thought.

The only people who should be worried about it are people 50 and older or if you know you have underlying health conditions that could make the flu or any rsv potentially deadly.
If I catch it I get 2 to 4 weeks off, so I'm rooting for the virus.

If you get life in prison, you get all the days off...

then again, in prison you still work 40hr weeks. You'll also have no doubt as to how they can feed people for $2.50 per day.

My wife got her first "Corona virus" case yesterday. A guy had gone for a walk and came within a couple hundred feet of a building where people had reported Corona-like symptoms (that ended up being negative). He didn't want to take any chances.

Didn't listen to the podcast. Sorry, not sorry; per redpoint5. I've been following Dr. John Campbell. Today: COVID-19 3rd March Tuesday 9,920 views •Mar 3, 2020 I like the low-tech presentation, printed pages and overhead cam.

See what she thinks about this: I think I've already had it.

Is there anything else seasonal going around? Mid-January I had what I'd characterize as a 'novel' inflammation. In that it went in through the lacrimals and out through the b*tthole.

I have the luxury of not having a schedule to keep, so starting with the first symptoms and for the first two days I treated it aggressively with steam and saline solution. The next two days I treated with chicken noodle soup ....and hip-hop



Can anyone explain what happens at 1:28? CGI or practical effect?

This is a good general video by Dr. Campbell from the 14th of last month:

After an English man claimed to have got rid of the Coronavirus by drinking hot whisky with honey, I'm not so worried at all. Brazil has some varieties of cachaça that might have a similar effect, including one with vegetable creosote added to it.

My cure for it is inhale some 80 proof bourbon mist.

Nothing to get excited about.

Expect them to not reveal everything. AFAIK, it's a hysterical non issue unless you're over 75 or have health issues.

The generally accepted symptom is dry coughing fits and decent fever. Booze would help symptoms.
