    These are adult professionals, blaming Trump is like blaming the commish of MLB for the cheating scandal.
    when you fire the CDC pandemic response team to save costs, the downside is you get blamed when the remaining staffers have no idea what they're doing.

    The CDC recommended those people not even be repatriated and were overruled by HHS.. And then objected they be placed on plane with over 200 non infected citizens being repatriated. The meeting the plane without masks is act 3 in this fuckup.

    To be fair, we elected Trump so we could watch the world burn.

    Promises made. Promises kept.

    Yeah, Iran probably has tens of thousands of cases. Italy may also. We may already have a 1000 for all we know. There were only 200 test kits in all of California. This article kind of blew my mind as to how many cases are likely out there and the fact we are all ready in a pandemic.

    South Korea is over 2000 cases as of this morning with less than half the deaths of Iran.

    Why South Korea may have more coronavirus cases than the US - ABC News

    SEOUL, South Korea -- Global health experts say the speed and scope of South Koreaís novel coronavirus diagnostic capability exhibit impressive and significant lab capabilities that no other countries, including the U.S., can match at the moment.

    South Korea had tested a total of 66,652 people for the COVID-19 coronavirus virus as of 4 p.m. local time Thursday, whereas Japan had reported administering roughly 1,890 tests and the U.S. only 445. The huge discrepancy compared to other countries reflects how quickly South Koreaís numbers have been rising, experts say.

    The total number of confirmed cases so far in South Korea is 1,766, up 505 from the day before. Of the 66,00 people who have been tested, more than 25,000 are still awaiting lab results.

    More than 10,000 people a day are being tested around the clock, propelled by a sense of concern that the virus may spread outside of Daegu area, where around 80 percent of all confirmed cases have been found.

    "This week is crucial for us in determining whether we have successfully dealt with COVID-19," South Korea Prime Minister Chung Sye-Kyun said.

    The tests are being run at 79 designated health centers, in addition to authorized private hospitals and public health labs across the country.

    "We have quickly selected these institutions after training and evaluation programs held on Feb. 7 and 20," official Park Hyun Kyu at Korea's Center for Disease Control told ABC News. "They do preliminary screening, then send all positively sampled results to us for final diagnosis."

    Dr. Todd Ellerin, Director of Infectious Disease at South Shore Health in Massachusetts, says the massive number of tests is impressive.

    "I think itís excellent," said Ellerin, who confirmed the validity of the South Korean tests. "Itís an urgent situation right now, and thatís how we should be adjusting."

    Doctors from around the world agree.

    "Impressive testing going on here. All hail these labs!" Ian M. Mackay, a virologist at Australia's University of Queensland, tweeted.

    "I definitely respect their earnestness and transparency," tweeted Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding, an epidemiologist at Boston's Harvard Chan School of Public Health.

    "Very detailed COVID-19 reporting ... demonstrating a significant diagnostic capability," tweeted Dr. Scott Gottlieb of Washington, D.C.'s American Enterprise Institute.

    A big reason for South Korea's success is how quickly they were able to get test kits ready, Ellerin said.

    "One thing China did was that [after] the first case came in November, activity began in late December and by January 10th China shared the sequence with the public and they already had test kits on that day."

    Officials say the rapid implementation was possible because the South Korean government was able to shorten the process for the newly developed test kits to be approved by its version of the Food and Drug Administration.

    "It would normally take about a year to get a test kit approved, but FDA gave out emergency approval to acceptable applicants on a temporary basis," Park told ABC News.

    For the testing itself, medical institutions, spread out across local communities, follow detailed instructions provided by the central health authorities and screen applicants with suspicious respiratory symptoms. The meticulous process takes from half an hour to an hour per person.

    "It just takes a lot of time because the tester has to change suits to a new one every time," said Park.

    "All medical teams dispose of their quarantine suits and inspection tools by using it just once, and new medical tools are used for each patient, every time," an official with Samsung Medical Center, one of the largest testing centers in Seoul, told ABC News.

    As number of tests continues to stack up, several locations have set up "drive-thru" centers that could minimize contact between the potential patient and medical staff. This new idea shortens time spent on testing to just 10 minutes per person since the medics do not have to change quarantine suits for every patient.

    Applicants must drive to the site in their privately owned vehicles wearing masks. Tests are conducted at a makeshift tent outside of buildings to prevent spreading indoors.

    "When I got there, someone opened the car door for me," Koo Ji-young told ABC News after receiving his test results for a $140 fee. "First, they take a chest X-ray, then measure body temperature using a noncontact measuring device. A doctor stuck a long stick into my nose and made me spit phlegm."

    The government has called for more volunteer nurses and doctors to help meet the rising demand for tests.

    "As of [Wednesday] morning, 205 people have registered to volunteer. We still need more," Health Vice Minister Kim Gang-lip said during a media briefing.

    In Daegu, where 80 percent of all confirmed cases have been reported, 28,000 residents who have reported symptoms of flu or cold will be tested by the end of the month, officials said. Authorities have also pledged to test more than 200,000 followers of a secretive sect at the center of the recent outbreak.

    Ellerin, the infectious disease director, said the massive amount of testing also creates valuable data.

    "This is a contagious respiratory virus," said Ellerin. "For instance, during flu season, roughly ten percent get affected. With South Korea's 55 million population, you could easily imagine 5 million getting this."

    "Sometimes we tend to overestimate," he said. "So let's see where this leads to."

    ABC News' Hakyung Kate Lee, Heejin Kang and Jiyung Koo contributed to this report.

    the rumor I heard was they were working on a SARS vaccine (which is in this virus' genus) on animals, and sometimes the scientists would resell those animals to markets or pet shops after they were done with them

    And I would totally believe that, because that is some dumb ass shit humans would do

    Also, back in 2002 during SARS, one guy in a Hong Kong lab got his whole building sick because he decided to one day handle a vial of SARS without nitrile gloves or facial PPE.

    Darwin was a prick...but he had a point

    Dr.Drew also has a point....COVID-19 is OK, for now. We will eventually dev immunities to it. But what happens when we hit COVID-20, 21, 30, 420...as it mutates 5 to 10 years down the road?

    That's the big ?

    Trump says coronavirus will 'disappear' eventually

    Seriously? How many people believe him?

    I think the people who sell "the end of the world" and "doomsday peppers" items are going to do a lot of business.

    Thankfully the virus won't spread in North America due to the American's boycott.

    Coronavirus fear sparks boycott of Corona BEER as survey finds 38% of Americans say they now won't drink the lager
    In addition, 16 per cent of beer-drinkers in the United States were confused about whether Corona beer is related to the virus.

    Hopefully Justin can get this message out to us here in Canada too.
