Currently, I am in Korea, 80-90% of people wear masks in the capitals (Seoul, Busan). In the periphery, in small towns and villages, almost all people do not wear masks.

Report on breakthrough vaccine that might be ready by summer in Britain but at a glance it seems like bs and just some lab fishing for money.

It's rumored that The Chinese Grand Prix is under review to be cancelled while the Formula E race has already been cancelled.

More news as it comes.

Remdesivir for MERS is being used and showing positive results to treat 2019-nCoV.

Some actual info from my counterparts in China.

- Streets have been pretty much empty in China. Everyone staying home and only would go out to purchase necessities and food 2-3 times a week. For those who have been to China, you will find it to be astonishing and quite a scene to be seen

- Officer workers are working from home while productions are still at a halt causing a lot of panic for necessity items such as toilet paper, condom (yes), and feminine hygiene products

- Death toll has certainly been slowing down the last 3 days

- Many bodies to be cremated: This is true in a sense that there are many people pass away in China every day for last so many decades. Think about how much population they have in China and how many people would die every day would give you some idea. Now coup that with the virus, it is certainly over their capacity but not to a point where there are 100s of bodies to be cremated. Priorities are given to those who passed from the virus

On a side note, a second plane with Americans being evacuated from Wuhan is on the way to San Diego.

Glad you finally join us; perhaps the Iowa debuckel, Impeachments acquittal, and those crazy conspiracies being right about both and being aware of coronavirus way before the msm has given you confidence to join the brotherhood.

Sir. Please make certain any members deciding to employ Tin Foil hats use the approved Tin Foil hats. We have standards here. We are civilized.

Ah yes. You sir, are a discriminating shopper. You are protecting yourself from both long- and short-wave mind control waves. You won't be anyone's mindless automaton, no sir you won't!!

Congratulations, once more!

Any chance in getting a cowboy hat added to the mix? Maybe something to match my boots under the foil?
