I’m not exactly sure what caused this outbreak but it seems that it is a lot more serious than what the Chinese government claims.

What’s going on??

I don't think it's too much of a concern. Apparently both of the people who died had existing health problems.

(given my last post in this forum was "well, at least Iran hasn't shot down a plane like the US did!", all of you should probably be concerned rn)

Given the population density of both nations... yup, it has to be like that! Especially because of the former where one infectious sneeze would set off a catastrophe.

For the actual discussion, let's just hope that it won't spread further, or kill more. And perhaps a vaccine, if it exists. EDIT: I did a quickie Google Search. I think it exists, but for not all the strains. I ain't an expert on this one, so I'm gonna sit out on further discussion.

That’s what they said about SARS and Swine Flu too, but here millions of us still are.

The communist regime needs to be overthrown ASAP or they will eventually cause the majority of the people under its rule to die.

Yeah but Beijing claims that da disease only exists in muh Wuhan and not anywhere else in China while it is sufficiently widespread to spread to Japan and Thailand.

Chinese New Year is coming in a week. Lots of people are moving around in China. This does not look good at all.

As long as the virus is mostly limited to China, I really don't care. If it spreads siignificantly to not piece of shit countries then its a real problem.

Knowing what Beijing does the disease won’t be restricted to China if it gets sufficiently serious. If Xi or any other Sinostatist leader is going down they will try to drag as much of the world as possible down with them.

Bromagia forgot that anything in NE Asia historically has the potential to disrupt the Caucasoid civilizations. Yes, that includes diseases in general and the plague in particular.

Hmm, seems like a rehash of the SARS outbreak that happened in the early-2000s in China, considering that SARS is also a coronavirus.

That’s a very stupid definition. According to it Sub-Saharan Africa is actually devoid of POS countries while China, maybe North Korea and Kosovo etc are in.

If it spreads, I'll care. If it just causes problems for China, I don't care.

Of course or they deliberately want to kill some older people in China to correct the demographic imbalance.
