    it's also a virus

    not that i imagine Meester understands the distinction between bacteria and a virus mind you.

    Iran's deputy health minister and an MP have both tested positive for the new coronavirus disease, as it struggles to contain an outbreak that has killed 15.
    The senior health official, Iraj Harirchi, said in a video that he was self-isolating and starting medication.
    He was seen mopping his brow repeatedly at a news conference on Monday, when he denied the authorities were lying about the scale of the Covid-19 outbreak.
    They have reported 95 cases, but the actual number is thought to be higher.

    The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) has said the sudden increase in cases in the country is "deeply concerning".
    More people have died in Iran from the virus than anywhere else outside China.
    It is one of three global hot-spots causing great concern among health experts that the virus could be developing into a pandemic. The others are South Korea and northern Italy, where cases have surged in recent days.
    "Self isolating" after holding a fucking press conference while infected in which you deny under-reporting of the scale of the outbreak.

    Mindblowing scenes.
    Allowing the temples to stay open to pilgrims sounds like an amazing way to spread it around.

    The Trump administration has spent the last several years gutting the government programs responsible for combatting a global health crisis.

    President Donald Trump spent much of Tuesday reassuring the public that the coronavirus is under control.

    “China is working very, very hard,” Trump told reporters at a business roundtable at the US embassy in New Delhi, India. “I have spoken to President Xi [Jinping of China], and they are working very hard. If you know anything about him, I think he will be in pretty good shape. They have had a rough patch, but now it looks like they are getting it more and more under control. I think that is a problem that is going to go away.”

    Trump’s comments are at odds with reality.

    The coronavirus, or COVID-19, originated in Wuhan, China and has killed 2,700 people globally and spread to 30 countries. There are at least 36 confirmed cases in the US, including repatriated citizens.

    On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that it expects the virus to spread further within the US.

    “It’s not so much of a question of if this will happen in this country any more, but a question of when this will happen,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said during a press call on Tuesday. “We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.”

    Messonnier also warned that the agency is “preparing as if we are going to see community spread in the near term,” adding that the outbreak could soon lead to a “disruption to everyday life.”

    Fears of a pandemic come after the Trump administration spent the past several years gutting the very government programs that are tasked with combatting such a crisis.

    In 2018, for instance, the CDC cut 80% of its efforts to prevent global disease outbreaks because it was running out of money. Ultimately, the department went from working in 49 countries to just ten.

    Here are some other actions the Trump administration undertook to dismantle government spending programs related to fighting the spread of global diseases, according to Foreign Policy:

    Shutting down the entire global health security unit of the National Security Council.
    Eliminating the US government’s $30-million Complex Crises Fund.
    Reducing national health spending by $15 billion.
    Consistently attacking Mark Green, the director of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
    The CDC is working on a new test to screen for the coronavirus, but according to New York Magazine, problems with the test’s development resulted in only three out of 100 public-health labs being equipped to screen for the virus. Moreover, each test costs as much as $250, and the Health and Human Services department is already running out of money to finance an adequate response to the outbreak.

    The Trump administration recently requested $2.5 billion in emergency funds – $1.25 billion in new funding and $1.25 billion to be diverted from other federal programs – to aid in preparing and responding to coronavirus cases in the US.

    But Democratic lawmakers and health experts skewered the administration for not going far enough to combat the crisis.

    The economic consequences of an unaddressed outbreak would dwarf US spending on efforts to control it, Marc Lipsitch, an epidemiologist and the director of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, told Insider.

    “It seems quite inadequate and absurd to divert funds from one serious epidemic to another,” Lipsitch said of the emergency funding package. “Money to control it is a very important investment.”

    No one said that, but you did say this:

    As you clearly didn't know, antibiotics work against bacteria; it's what the word means. They do precisely cock all against viruses.

    Actually it uses 'empty' viruses. They use the outer skin so to speak to get what they want where they want. And yeah antibiotics do 0 against a virus

    You have to be exposed to the virus to develop immunity. This one is “novel,” so most folks aren’t going to be resistant to it unless it’s by random genetic chance, or previous exposure to other similar coronaviruses. Some weaker coronaviruses can present as a “common cold,” so it’s not totally novel.

    Antibiotic resistance would only be an issue for secondary infections, which can be a problem with the kind of pneumonia this can cause. If you get an antibiotic resistant secondary, you’re prolly fucked.

    Best not to think of it as a “flu,” better to think of it as viral pneumonia.

    Now it is in America how many working Americans can afford to visit their doctor and how many can afford to spend a couple of weeks in self quarantine?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    At a guess, 3-15 million (ie. 1-5% of the population).
