    The scary part of this stuff is that there are reports it has a two week incubation period before symptoms show up and it may be contagious during that time.

    That's two weeks of someone walking around infecting others before they become sick. Not good.

    Well I'm not quite ready to fall in to the media's trap just yet. I'm not saying it's not a bad virus but I believe the media is blowing it out of proportion. So far, with what we know, the common flu kills more people globally. And according to researchers, other versions of coronavirus have already been in the US. Lastly, an average healthy adult wont be severely effected. Like the flu, this virus mainly effects people who already have a weakened or less developed immune system. Most people who contract this coronavirus will be fine.
    So no I'm not quite ready to start panicking over this yet.

    Oh for sure, yesterday was bloody on Wall Street. Most of it is rebounding today though. Once again we can thank them MSM for the panic. But I think there have only been like 81 deaths according to one article I saw. I believe SARS killed about 750 world wide in 2002. The common flu kills almost 400k a year globally. But you don't see panic about the flu.

    Ain’t worried. I picked up this snake wine in Vietnam and it will cure anything.
