    Coronavirus is in Iran, next up will be Pakistan, Iraq and probably a bit later India.
    Iran won't be able to control this thing. Neither will Pakistan and Iraq.
    In Iraq it will migrate toward Syria, then onto Turkey and up the southern tip of Europe
    We can figure Libya and Egypt will be included in this hit parade so it will sweep into first Northern Africa and then the rest of that continent.
    Pandemic here we come!

    Tl;dr Infection control on board broke down.
    I for one find it absolutely shocking that a vessel designed to force people into close proximity, filled with angry old gammon and staffed almost entirely by unskilled Filipinos turned out to not be an ideal place to contain a virulent contagion.

    they closed tourism down a while ago and lengthened mandatory quarantine, for everybody crossing the border, to 30 days yesterday.

    they're actually taking this shit seriously, and for good reason considering the dire state of their healthcare system due to the embargos, or so it appears.

    fuck knows what's actually happening in there.

    Italy now has 50k people on lockdown. 132 cases and growing fast. Seems to be more than 1 local patient zero but it includes a chinese couple from Wuhan.

    According to right wing media in Germany, that was indeed the expectation.

    After all the minute the Chinese said they'd built a hospital in a few days, people were quick with "they should build the airport in Berlin because Merkel can't."

    Funny you should mention the Olympics. My dad found out last week that our travel insurance no longer provides coverage for COVID-19 hospitalization by default.

    Alistair means it's more fodder for the tin-foil hatters. Not that what you said was tin-foil worthy.

    Yeah, I'm wondering what will happen to the Olympics.

    If the Rainbow Six novel is anything to go by it should be cancelled.
