Default SARS-CoV-2 aka COVID-19

So we got a new SARS that's way more contagious... and seems way less controlled. Approaching 80k infections (reported), kinda blowing my mind. This is actually going to be a pandemic, officially, most likely.

It's not going to wipe out the human race but it's gonna be a big deal.

What say you?

it's way less deadly than SARS/MERS but when there's a shit ton more transmission, you get a lot more deaths.

older you are, more likely to die. no deaths of people under age 9 reported.

pre-existing conditions of course raise your risk

very contagious flu with 100-1000x+ more chance of death (probably about 1-2% but in elderly it's above 50%). compared to regular flu, which is something like 0.01%-0.1% depending on the year.

1-2% is a lot when you have hundreds of thousands of cases. it's great it's not ebola with 50% but it will kill a lot of people

there's no real sign it's under control which is the scary part

iran announced 2 people had it and then a few hours later that they died. meaning there's probably a cluster of people that haven't been announced yet, unlikely 2 random people got it without transmitting it to others.

this is the first disease thing like this i've legitimately been scared about. i'm not a doctor or anything obviously, but i never felt this way with SARS/MERS/Ebola/etc. and i don't think i'm an alarmist

there's also indications that 2-3 week incubation period isn't uncommon meaning the 14 day quarantines are not good enough which has been standard

if you haven't read about the cruise ship you should, it's insane. 20% of people tested have it. just had first two deaths reported

Bring it on. We're a cancer.

All these species, these perfect ecosystems that we had on this beautiful planet that we've destroyed all so that we can have our cars and wi-fi and our netflix.

We're not going to make it interstellar to another planet to destroy possibly less than we have this one.

Maybe the best we can hope for is to at least bring down our numbers pretty significantly.

I'm not worried about the virus. Jesus is coming back soon. He'll heal the Chinese before sending them to hell.

66,000 women are violently killed every year worldwide.

We have bigger epidemics to worry about.

Other translations have "fool" instead of "scorner."


Just sayin'.

Look, I might go a little overbored sometimes, but there's no denying that I bring some much-needed mischievous vivacity to the board. You could say I am the throbbing heart of Netphoria!

My dad bought a second pair of walking shoes that he really likes (they are the kind without laces, hella lame). He buys them online, and they are shipped directly from China.

He's keeping them quarantined in the garage for two weeks.

I refuse to get wound up about this stuff. You're more likely to get hit by a bus because you have your head down, reading about this disease than you do actually contracting the disease.

When I watch, say, my mom die from COVID, I'll tell her "Sorry Mom, I'm not capable of dealing with two very different problems at once, and I already have my hands full with the violent deaths of women"

I'll pass a homeless person about to die of hypothermia and, yup, have to explain why I can't help

It's all very unfortunate but what can you do

That's almost exactly how society have dealt with minority issues for a long time.

Point being if we freaked out about many other issues with even higher mortality rates out there as we do about coronavirus, maybe we'd be a little better off.
