    If you feel a sudden urge to travel the world, you likely have Coronvirus

    It seems like there's a case in Florida recently. Hopefully it's high elderly population would be okay.

    Apparently all the Chinese restaurants are getting hit hard. Meaning that nobody want to go out for Chinese because they're afraid all the Chinese here have it.

    I also heard that the Corona beer is being associated to the virus, and because of that its sales has fallen.

    It's a joke site the Last Week Tonight staff made as an extension of a joke in the video.

    Welp, to attempt to minimize risk from the coronavirus, my workplace has now suspended all work-related international travel and non-essential domestic travel for our employees until the end of May, and also not allowing international visitors to our main office buildings (with the exception of new hires), so quite a few people here (myself included) have cancelled multiple business trips. We've also cancelled all guided tours at our site for the second half of March and all of April and May, including a big biannual event at the beginning of April. People can still come visit, but only for the self-guided experience.

    I gather that NASA has put similar travel restrictions into effect as well.

    About the virus itself: correct me if I'm wrong/if anyone knows differently, but from what I've heard, so far, the vast majority of the fatalities have been primarily among the elderly and/or those who had pre-existing health issues, right? And many people who get it don't actually show symptoms or realize they have it, but are still contagious. Not that it doesn't still suck to come down with it even if it doesn't kill you, of course.

    Yeah, if you're not old or suffering from from certain serious health issues you should be fine.

    The bad news is that apparently the virus has likely been roaming Washington State for six full weeks, which implies it spread to every other state long ago and we're just waiting for symptoms to start showing en masse.

    *sigh* As probably was expected people are now using the corona virus as an excuse to be horribly racist towards all Asian-Americans, not just Chinese:

    Well, it's in my state now. At least one guy, quarantined.

    I suspect several people will be able to say this soon.

    Trump basically said it was okay for people to go to work with it and that he has "a hunch" that estimates for how many people it killed are way too high.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    The vaccine of the moment (?) (I guess it's a Today's special kind of thing)
    Buy two Coronas,
    get one Mort Subite free

    Edit: mort means death and subit/e apparently means sudden.

    The Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic reminds me of the Stephen Book, The Stand. Though I doubt it will be that crazy like in that book, but this is the first time that I'm seeing something like this in action.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    I also been checking these two sites as they update daily:

    World-Wide Map:
    https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/04/mapping-coronavirus-outbreak-infographic/

    U.S Map:
    https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/03/02/811319058/which-u-s-states-have-confirmed-coronavirus-cases

    Hope this helps with people to try to keep track of how it's spreading.
    Taking a break from the message board due to people disliking me for certain beliefs I hold and for hating on me because I'm a lolicon/into loli hentai. If anyone wants to contact me, talk to RoboBlue, Louis1988, or The D. to get my contact info.
