Great! Because I want a new plasma screen. *cough cough*

Wow, 6 months. In 6 months all of this would have (hopefully) have died down already. It would have probably have come and went like the swine flu before it.

Man, I know that China has been angry at Trump for a while, but you'd hope that they'd stop short of unleashing a friggin' plague.

Just kidding. Kinda. I'unno, DISprove it!

There’s a 60 minutes episode from Australia, and if you want to know what they’re not telling you...

Spoiler:
The expectation is that 40-60% of the world will be infected, 45 million will die.

I've seen a few numbers being thrown around. I think as high as 70%.

One thing to keep in mind is that each outbreak of a new disease is going to be at least a little different considering not all diseases are the same. In addition, there's a high chance that even the official information coming in is going to be off due to poor reporting methods.

Nice try! Implicating the Chinese won't throw us off the trail. He who blames it, claims it.Why did YOU unleash the plague, Leo?

If memory serves, it was because they keep making Fast & Furious movies. And people keep watching them.

I'm doing God's work. You'll all thank me one day.

Looks like a worldwide recession is for sure, between the correction of the "boom" economy , Corona and now oil fight, tsss.

We haven't seen something like this, let's hope it doesn't get much worse but it's hard to predict anything right now

What I'm starting to want to consider is now related to the time of total proliferation. At this point there's no question that this is a legit, devastating issue in many ways. It affects everyone, on a global scale, lots of deaths and markets literally crashing (they shut down S&P trading today for 15 minutes to stop an honest to God freefall).

And so now I want to see as much data as possible indicating a "survival by" date. "The way this thing spreads is that we hope to pull through and have physical and extensional recoveries by July [or whenever]".

But what's worse is that as we enact social distancing measures to stop the spread we are actually dragging out the economic effects such that they will be much worse. It's an honest catch-22.

Man, if ever there was a time for you to fight for universal healthcare, lol.
Then again, maybe some of you are eagerly anticipating a culling of the herd. This place, it’s a coin toss on the psychopathy indicators.

Canada now has it’s first death. We’re drawing lots to see who gets her horded Toilet Paper.

Death toll of Coronovirus is pretty small so far, so I don't see where that number of 45 million people dying from the virus is coming from.

As for Dow Jones failure - thanks to Russia who get into fight with OPEC. Funny thing, if this "crisis" will continue Russian economy will suffer the most because of it. Guess, Putin's cronies hope that OPEC and / or Saudi Arabia will try to make a deal again...

To be fair, 45 million is only .64 percent of 7 billion. I suppose it comes down to the losses we're willing to accept.

This is saddening.

Many people dying, with so many more infected - scary.

Stay safe, everyone.

This is getting worrisome. All major colleges in my state and over 140 overall have shuttered going on extended Spring Break and then online for up to a month.

All late night shows, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune are going on without audiences. MLB is considering empty stadiums as well as NBA.

Trump is to address the nation tonight at 9pm EST.
