Rumored to eat?
Well, fake news 'n all. I haven't been to China. Trying to remain politically correct, I'm behind the times off course.

Exactly...all the libtards want to blame Trump...the same people who called him a racist when he stopped flights from China in late January. we should all be blaming China and their filthy wet markets with zero regard for health and disease. Then they lie about it, shut down social media, and whistleblowers. It was not till feb14th they disclosed it was human to human and they had many healthcare folks getting sick....then the little pricks try to blame the US.... sorry but we should all be blaming China...
Wait, are you seriously defending Trump?

I am...60% approval rating for handeling of CV. Lots of fake news out there, and of couse the left is praying this destoys him, because all their other pathetic attempts have failed... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Are you defending China????

Amazing, all this finger pointing. Both Europe and the US had warning. Both seem to be doing worse than China and Europe at least so far, worse than the US. Not even talking about South Korea, etc. So no 10 out of 10, no great people, no great prime ministers. "We" should all be looking at ourselves.

Lies, withheld data, surpressed whistle blowers... One study has suggested it could have been contained by 95% if the Chinese were more honest.......yes I am finger pointing...sorry.

Europe seems to be doing even worse than Trump land. So far at least. In the end that's (total number or percentage of dead ?) what will count most as far as I am concerned. And it looks like the "Asian" response will turn out to have been the best. Not the European or the American. There have been no surprises, we have all known what the Chinese are rumoured to eat, Trump hasn't acted in a surprising way, so why blame anybody but ourselves for obviously being so vulnerable to them ?
Liked your post :thumb: --- ; but i would not trust those numbers , coming
out of china . China has bin claiming 30 to 47 new cases , from the onset ; but
the serious/critical has bit quite high the entire time.

I don't trust the numbers from USA ; not enough testing to know for sure.

Also if you look at the curve ; world-wide it doesn't appear to be flattening. :o

Large Cities like New York and London could be major epicentres for this. Centralist countries like China and Russia are going to be a lot better at handling this situation than liberal western democracies like the UK and US. US has an especially serious problem because of their private healthcare system. If you owned a private hospital in the US which is was run for profit would you decide to stay open during this crisis? - I don't know if they have a legal obligation to do so. Hopefully this wont turn out to be that bad and the world will get back to normal in a few weeks.

What ? Lies ?? With held data ? Wake up Matth, this is the political reality of today. I'm convinced it happens just about everywhere, even the great orange man (what was that somebody called him?) is guilty of those. China had no warning, "the west" did. I'm no fan of China but we can point fingers all we want, the reality is we have a big problem that only we can do something about.

Can you kite under self isolation? If walking and running and exercise ok? Thoughts pls?
Yesterday myself and another self isolator put on our self isolation suits and took our specialised isolation devices, one bit goes on strings in the air and the other you stick in the water, and we isolated our brains out in an isolated, (for this time of the year), nor east wind.
Such was the isolation on that isolated beach, there was an isolation gap of approx. 100m between isolated individuals.

Fortunately after such isolation I was able to find an isolated latte and the isolation session was complete :D

No I don't really trust the numbers either. Iran, Russia...?? But it seems China is opening up again, sending medical supplies to the rest of the world now, Europe is still closing down but already (ok, suposedly) passing China. South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, all appear to have handled it better than Europe and the US. Pointing fingers (in any direction) just makes it embarassing. Maybe one day when this is all over and we know more, but not now.
