    I'm surprised no one started this topic in the BS section, so there it goes here...

    There are over 1,000 dead (officially) and over 43,000 infected. There's a report that it will take at least 18 months to develop a vaccine.

    Some conspiracy theorists say that this is an attempt to slow down Chinese economy and prevent them to become Super Power. What do you guys say?

    I haven’t really followed it much, but I saw snippet of an article how the guy who brought light to this in China got arrested and silenced? Then he got the virus and died recently? Super weird that they wanted to silence him about this spreading.

    Nah, it’s what happens when there are too many of one species living to close to each other. This is nature doing what nature does. Nothing more nothing less

    I think it's man made and I doubt China is at all honest about the numbers they have affecting the country.

    Whether they released it as a test or it escaped the lab in Wuhan by accident is your call. Either way, with the amount of imports and exports passing through China it's scary as hell.

    China is a dirty country, a lot of people there are not hygienic. I know this because a friend of mine who is an executive has flown to China many times and has nothing nice to say about their hygiene practices.

    Not saying it’s a conspiracy or they are thinning the herd, but it’s very easy to spread disease when basic cleanliness precautions are not practiced.

    The stock market has been in a huge bubble for the last decade. The Corona Virus has been around since December, and the stock market was growing despite it. I do believe though, they will blame the Corona Virus as the reason why the stock market is going down, but the real reason is the federal reserve has been pumping this bubble with Quantitative Easing, Expanding their balance sheet, lowering interest rates etc for the last decade.

    Looks like we know the best people to combat this thing. Nothing to fear...

    how do you watch this clown speak and not feel shame for this country? Arguably the most limited vocabulary for a Prez ever

    Did you all hear about how Trumps Medical Team believes we can get a vaccine out pretty fast?!

    Anyone skipping THAT shot?

    This thread is about coronavirus, NOT about whistleblowers, the Senate, etc.

    On the subject of this thread, there's now a case in CA of an unknown origin.
