    "China’s leader on Saturday called the accelerating spread of a new virus a grave situation, as cities from the outbreak’s epicenter in central China to Hong Kong scrambled to contain an illness that has infected more than 1,200 people and killed 41."
    "Australia and Malaysia reported their first cases Saturday, and Japan, its third. France confirmed three cases Friday, the first in Europe, and the U.S. identified its second, a woman in Chicago who had returned from China."

    "Xinhua also said medical supplies are being rushed to the city, including 14,000 protective suits, 110,000 pairs of gloves and masks and goggles." :hmm::hmm::hmm:

    Just an observation, but
    Seems a little more serious than "cold and flu like symptoms."
    Apparently more like: air born viral pneumonia, you catch it and croak..:agreed:.what doya think?
    Could turn into a world-wide epidemic in 2-3 weeks...?

    Oddly enough, my wife and I watched a post apocalyptic movie a couple weeks ago about a pandemic originating from China spreading from livestock to humans, decimating the planet. Then boom we see this real virus hitting the news...:run: Could get real ugly in a few months, I see China has quarantined a couple large cities and are building emergency hospitals....

    Probably not in good taste to make fun of what is a true crisis, but with the beer, it is! It is where the lime (or lemon) wedge originated in association with that particular beer, but more its affiliation with bottles, Good marketing strategy.

    In China at the center of the epidemic, driving cars in this city has been banned.
    Nobody is allowed to travel without authorization.

    "It's much harder to contain a virus -- to track down a patient's contacts and quarantine them immediately -- if the patient was spreading the disease for days or weeks before they even realized they had it.

    Third US case of coronavirus confirmed as China warns people can spread the virus before realizing they're ill

    "It means the infection is much more contagious than we originally thought," said Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. "This is worse than we anticipated."

    You have the look...that hazmat look....love those white coveralls.

    It will either kill you or it won't. Don't buy into the media hype. Worrying changes nothing.

    Me, I'm waiting for that single malt virus... I'll be hoping to catch the lagavulin strain
