I've been following this recent development a bit and noticed that someone had posted this who was from Vietnam. Not sure what to make of it.

Inside the Chinese lab poised to study the world's most dangerous pathogens

"But worries surround the Chinese lab, too. The SARS virus has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. Tim Trevan, founder of CHROME Biosafety and Biosecurity Consulting in Damascus, Maryland, says that an open culture is important to keeping BSL-4 labs safe, and he questions how easy this will be in China, where society emphasizes hierarchy. “Diversity of viewpoint, flat structures where everyone feels free to speak up and openness of information are important,” he says."

Now they are saying they think a student in Texas May have it as well. Bad deal because symptoms don’t show until 2 weeks after you are infected.
This started in a horrible area from people eating non fully cooked exotic animals.

^I heard that too. frown

That article that was shared was from 2017. Interesting.

Apparently WuHan has been booming but they didn't do enough on the public-health policy front.

China will be the cradle of the end of civilization. Everybody thinks there will be some huge war or something, but I think that some pandemic will birth there and spiral out of control. There are just too many people.

That's true of the entire country not just that particular area. It was always a matter of time. In China it seems as if it moves, they eat it so the risk of getting some kind of virus jumping to humans is much more likely in that area.

Buster..... they are playing with fire there!
I guess it’s a very small bit comforting that it’s not in this country. I just watched a deal on tv tonight where the experts think the Chinese are lying about the actual number of infected and deaths. coffee

In The Andromeda Strain, as I recall, the lab was built on a small nuclear bomb. Wonder if that’s necessary/true for some of this stuff...

China never gives the correct story so things originating there will already be out of control and spread over the globe before the information gets out.

That's not going to do any good when the bug is already 5000 miles away when you pop the nuke.

I think this is the pandemic web game that has a nice graphic of how this kind of thing spreads.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.
