    What are you talking about? I've been a member of this forum for 10 years and this is the very first non-IM-related case I have discussed on BHW.

    The reason is that the guy who started the thread seems to be absolutely mental - and eager to spread fear based on some conspiracy theories from his own head.

    The company I work for had a stand at a huge conference in Amsterdam two weeks ago. We did not go because we don't want to take the risk as there are people there from all the countries in the world.

    We might have to skip out on the biggest one this year as well in a few months in Paris. Better safe than sorry.

    Exactly. News are just riding the wave of click bait articles surrounding this virus now.

    Like SARS, swine/bird flu etc.

    I'm from Kuwait. Sadly, it has now 3 cases, the government tries to cover the cases, I don't know why!, around 800 Kuwaiti citizen got from Iran yesterday, we are a small country, many people will die and infected by this virus!!!!

    I hope the world becomes safer than now, I'm really scared :(

    Everyone babbles nonsense. 99.99999% of what people say on a daily basis is babbling nonsense.

    Relax.

    The death rate is like 2-3%. Unless you are old and weak, or have a major health problem you're going to be fine.

    Why are you so dismissive of the human condition?

    There are MANY 10+ year old accounts that show up now and then to troll or offend and then disappear again.

    What was your previous BHW username when you got banned?

    If I earned money posting this you could argue this is clickbait.

    In a few days you'll tell me if you should have prepared better or not.

    Here is what they do if you're caught with a fever in China.

    This is what some of you are dismissing as just a flu.

    Even after being under quarantine for weeks, Wuhan still has an unsafe air quality ranking. Smoking consumption and smog is making it a much worse problem in China than the virus alone.

    Especially creepy since a lot of the smoke in Wuhan is due to crematoriums working 24x7.

    I recognize you. I can't remember your former username now.

    Was also a writer and had a BST thread.

    I don't know what your talking about, if you remember let me know because other people say I had similar humor to someone else. Also content writing is the easiest thing to do if you don't have any infrastructure.
