China puts Wuhan on lockdown.

Post by Tommy Tar » Wed Jan 22, 2020 11:55 am

Wuhan China with over 10 million people is on transportation lockdown. No people in #Wuhan, C China's Hubei will be allowed to leave the city starting 10 a.m. of Jan. 23. Train stations and airport will shut down; the city bus, subway, ferry and long-distance shuttle bus will also be temporarily closed: local authority.

Huge job. :shock:

A second Chinese city, Huanggang (population 6 million), will go under lockdown to prevent the spread of the China virus.

Shanghai Disneyland is "closed indefinitely"...isn't that one of the signs of the Apocalypse?

Not funny but not worth moving to a shack in the woods over, either. 11,791 confirmed cases in China with 259 deaths (2.2%), so far. 10,000 Americans died from the flu this year. 1,238 Americans were killed by guns in January, not counting suicides.

Perspective. I'm not wearing Kevlar underwear, I'm not wearing a surgical mask.

It's basically pneumonia...it's guessing for some provincials it's scary because it started in China

There are VERY few cases of human-to-human transmission, 99%+ are first-hand exposure to the virus in Wuhan

Who else besides me remembers back in about 2014 or 2015 that conservatives were claiming that Ebola was going to kill all of us because of Obama's incompetence? And who led that idiot's parade? Wait for it......................Donald J. Trump.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Love how everything here is politics. #-o

The WHO is saying tens of thousands of sick people are waiting to be tested. China has a huge shortage of testing kits and they won't confirm any case until a test is done.

I don't know if this means anything or not, but.... The Washington Post labeled this as a "chartered aircraft" evacuating people from China. It's not a charter. It belongs to a mysterious Air Force special operations wing. It dropped some people off at Travis and then flew the rest to Miramar. But it did fly from China with GPS turned on, so it isn't a spy plane. But it is a mystery plane.

Conspiracy theories to follow.

Many key people in the Iranian government may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

How do we protect our troops that are in proximity? Viruses aren't known to respect sovereign borders.

Interesting stat on the coronavirus - Number of cases in Taiwan: 20, Deaths: 1, a cab driver.

Travel is more difficult from the mainland but not closed. It's fully open from other affected countries. The US gets a lot of tourists from the mainland, but I'm pretty sure most Chinese immigrants are from Taiwan.

The next locations to look at is Iran and Northern Italy. Look for nations to stop all air travel from Iran by this weekend.

Does anyone know if this is true as it relates to the Limbaugh types? If it is, I have to file it under the "just when you thought you'd heard the stupidest thing ever from Trump supporters."
