Default coronavirus / Bubonic Plague

This new Coronaviruis is like the spread of the Bubonic Plague. The Bubonic Plague called (the Black Death) also originated from China. It spread like wild fires from one person to the next. This new virus is doing the same thing as the Bubonic Plague did back then. It killed thousands before they could get the plague under control. This new Coronavirus is very scary since the disease can spread so easily.

The governments of different countries are not being strict enough on the travel issues and quarantined people. We don't want a global disease problem like the Black Plague did many years ago!!!!

Pretty sure the B. Plaque killed millions back when. It's also interesting that some reports indicate t the C. virus was brought Into the market at ground zero vice originating from the market, and the rapid rate at which it is evolving/mutating, increasing the contagion nature of the virus, as well as it's now reported ability to "hide" up to 14 days with No symptoms, but still be contagious. That later part is very bad mojo, in addition to the Exponential rate at which it's spreading...we've crossed the 60K mark in no time and it's probably much higher than that. Lastly, the Chinese need to be up front and for once honest on how this all started/came about. It's too coincidental, to me at least, that China's bio war lab is right there same city where this outbreak started, And one of their foreign ministers, when confronted, did not simply outright deny that connection, but instead said it's dangerous to spread rumors and that it could have originated in the U.S., etc. Nonsense and a very telling response to me. Then again, given how they shut that doctor up when he sounded the alarm, and is now dead, it's wishful thinking that we'll Ever get honesty from the Chinese on this matter. Lastly, there's a CDC or WHO scientist who did a computer model study few yrs ago of a very similar virus with ground zero being in Brazil, where the exponential growth of infections world wide in 18 months was in hundreds of millions with 65 Million dead....Note we are less than 3 months into the origin of the current outbreak. No panic spreading, but that's well worth noting for the future as we study where this goes as infection # doubled in less than a week as I understand it. I'l be we hit over 100K very soon. As saying goes, "keep your powder dry", as this could get much worse....Could. My 2 cents!

The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe's population. In total, the plague may have reduced the world population from an estimated 475 million to 350–375 million in the 14th century. Wiki

No worries Art...not trying correct you, just doing some research as there have been different times of the B.P. apparently, including recently in China for a few cases in west. In the end, both Mother Nature and Father Time are undefeated vs mankind.

Anyway, sorry for the link, but Google search "simulation of coronavirus pandemic" and it'll bring it up, or should, on the first page as a BusinessInsider piece. Have a good one.

While the Bubonic plague killed millions, 600 years ago there were not the technologies available today, sadly though we in the 21st century are an international globe flitting here and there on planes so perhaps harder to control, just hope we don't need to burn the world to contain this one.

Cheers, Steve.

More than that, It is almost spreading to other countries scaringly, reported by CDC, There are 15 confirmed cases in the U.S. but none are said to be suffering serious symptoms.

The agency is setting up five labs around the U.S. where people with flu-like symptoms can be tested for coronavirus if their flu results are negative. The virus, dubbed COVID-19, has spread to more than two dozen countries.

this virus is really scary. Just being around someone with the virus can pass it on to you. I wanted to make a flight to the Philippines but I have decided not to right now. Until they get it under control, I will stay off the airplanes with people on it from China and some Asian countries.
