In China, when they quarantined, the authorities didn't play around, and would physically remove a man if he was infected.

I haven't heard anything about NORTH Korea.

That’s due to the economic sanctions. We’re not letting them have any of our Coronavirus until they straighten up!

Because those countries are testing as many people as possible. When people are discovered who are positive for Covid 19 their recent contacts are traced and quarantined or tested. Also, they are enforcing strict quarantine rules on their populaces who are used to obeying orders.

I doubt we, in the US, will be nearly as successful. Too many know it alls.

Because they stopped testing people! Don't fall for the lie that they succesfully quarantined eberybody. They realised it's less dangerous than the flu which has killed 20 thousand out of 200 thousand positively tested in the USA this season so far.

Do you believe everything you hear out of Asia?
You nervous sorts need to hold the goddam line, every other person is freaking out and nobody even agrees on the stats...it's all bullshit

Asia?!? Why don't I just take the word of the horrible Russian Government for fuck's sake

It's a cold, if you get it it should last about a week, meanwhile we're shutting down industry and private businesses because a few people feel 'off'
Good people are losing their jobs because of public weakness

Nonsense...The world recently filled up full of dramatic crybabies is what seems to have happened

Toughen up world, it's a Chinese cold, stay out of work for 3 days, and stop acting like wimps
