What a stupid tweet.

 

Unfathomable? Incomprehensible?

 

It is expected.  What a moron.

The quoted tweet what a guy stating the rise in Italy day-to-day. You can't just plug your ears to this. Your response was remarkably stupid.

Aren't you the one trying to get everyone to panic to the point a lot of other posters were telling you to quit?

 

Yea....I thought so. :picard:

Really, it comes down to us protecting ourselves the best we can.  How many people in 

China got the virus, 130,000 or so?  What’s their total population, 1.3 billion?  So way more than a billion Chinese people didn’t catch it.  Odds a very slim we come into contact with it.  

Exactly, it comes down to us. And whether people are willing and smart enough to put in place extreme measures of containment. China took some very extreme measures to get this under control.

I'm not trying to get anyone to panic. Asinine post dude. I've had a disagreement with some on here, but likewise had people agree with me. It's a discussion forum, discussions will take place. But back to the quoted tweet which stated facts that made you uncomfortable enough to 'at' me twice. 

 

and your ever-so enlightening response:

Honestly at this point I am scared. Scared not because the virus is out there but scared that nobody is doing anything to try to contain it. Say what you want about China and how the virus started there but look at their containment effort and result. I don’t know, I feel like tough times like these call for extreme measures and we should be ready to abide to extreme measures. Stop going on a cruise of traveling to hot zones for god sake

It is just some guy trying to sensationalize actual stats by adding "unfathomable" & "incomprehensible".  Those words were unnecessary and stupid. That is what I wrote. It is fear mongering just like some have accused you of doing. 

 

I have no clue who that clown mark lowen is, but he must not be very bright if he actually believes an increase of cases of a highly contagious disease is "unfathomable" & "incomprehensible".

 

Edit: I have tried to make my above words as easy to understand as possible for you.

I'm with you. I don't think enough is being done. Border still open, travel unlimited, whatever that press conference Trudeau made wherein he openly states he's not being tested while his wife is positive. Then there's the Italy flight to MTL with exactly no screening:

 

It gets worse before it gets better. But damn if those $100 Caribbean cruises aren't tempting.

5 more travel linked. Nah, let's keep those planes going, numbers aren't high enough yet. 

It was actually 7 due to inbound travellers.

And I don’t understand why they are advising us not to travel, but continue to allow inbound flights....without any screening upon arrival.

The updates are appreciated but I don’t feel the additional condescending comments on the situation are necessary. I think the vast majority on this forum have expressed the need to close the borders and cut off air travel.

I’m very interested to see the true numbers from Iran, currently 2 Vice Presidents and 10% of their parliament has contracted the virus. 
 

I imagine the situation is much more grave over there than they’re showing to the world.

I wonder what the real numbers in China are also.  I saw a video supposedly showing officials welding a door to an apartment building closed in wuhan with people in the building.

 

 

Hard to know what is true though.

They said 5 were travel related  the others are undermined at this time which makes me think that's there new word for community spread... I agree they need to do more with the inbound flights.

 

Also update on my earlier post a friend in college with no travel history went to the ER in Maple Ridge with asthmatic type symptoms and a fever and is awaiting results of her test. She does not have asthma.
