I heard he's a san jose state student.I'm hoping he self isolated himself as soon as he got home, but I doubt it. He probably went to school this week, touching hallway and bathroom door handles, desks, chairs, and water fountains, infecting others.
What the markets are worried about is supply chain disruption.
The thing about this virus. It's not like pneumonia which might affect a few lobes or the flu. It's the Acute Respiratory Syndrome that kills. Your entire lungs swell closed and fill with fluid. If you're lucky enough to get an O2 ventilator it basically fucks your lungs up for life anyway, partly due to the tidal volumes the respirator makes collapsing and inflating your freaking alveoli causing more inflammation and scarring. Like immediate COPD from then on, great fun!Unless you're one of those people with an immune system that doesn't react much.More modern methods of respirator treatment use positive pressure but CO2 builds in your body which is uncomfortable and people start gasping which fucks things up. So they paralyze you and put you face down. However only if there is a trained nurse who then basically has to wait on you continuously. Not enough nurses in a mass outbreak to do that. Not enough respirators for that matter.

are you sure people are dying from ARS and not pneumonia or sepsis?
it affecting people with poor immune systems
And supply chain disruption is exactly what I am hoping for, if it shifts more manufacturing back to the US.
Patrick saysAnd supply chain disruption is exactly what I am hoping for, if it shifts more manufacturing back to the US.This is why the government has not quarantined ALL contact with China and dragged their feet on stopping air flights.Ditto for their hacks running the CDC/WHO who are probably threatening the research doctors who wanted to act and act harder to keep their yaps shut.
