    Info from ZhugeEx ... In 2019 around 90% of US consoles imported from China and thinking any impacts should be minimal short term as it's still early on, but depends on how long it lasts.

    Behind the scene of (allegedly) one of paper mask manufacturer in Indonesia



    Uh... I don't think that will protect you from the virus.. You'll get various disease instead

    That's potentially concerning. People infected by the virus but showing no symptoms can carry the virus and spread it to others.

    Most concerning when it comes to the service industry where someone infected could be cleaning rooms, for instance, and no one would know they were sick to make them take time off.

    Regards,

    Doesn't that suggest they have some immunity and their blood could be used to create a vaccine?

    Not showing symptoms doesn't mean there wouldn't be symptoms in the future.
    We don't know how long the incubation period for SARS-CoV-2 is to develop COVID-19, currently longest known is 27 days from exposure, but earlier the estimates were from mere couple days to under 2 weeks, so clearly we have no clue.

    The US is totally unprepared for this. Trump has gutted the CDC and most of the federal emergency services and replaced qualified people with cronies, when it hits here I'm very afraid it's gonna be quite terrible. :(

    HAD! This stuff is worth being worried/afraid/changing you plans over. If there's a large outbreak near where you're supposed to go, don't!

    I don't normally worry about these scares, but this one is frightening me like no other before. It's more real and less news-PR scare tactics. :|

    If there is going to be a pandemic it's better to get infected and better now while medical services aren't overloaded.

    Yes trump wanting to cut the CDC budget by 16% now during this crisis shows he really believes he can get away with anything.
    Republicans (being conservatives) are ppl that generally are more afraid of stuff so I really can’t see may trump supporters being happy with this cut.
    Also that can’t be right, USA contributes only 2.5% of the WHO’s budget, its prolly 25%

    @MfA i believe you can catch confid- 19 more than once

    But then if you bring it into the country, you contribute to its spread.

    At the moment if you catch it, you can be well treated in hospital. When everyone's catching it, resources will be too stretched and chances are your care will be well less than optimal. Hence catching it early is better for you, but not catching it at all is better for everyone.
