    Yeah your rant about shutting down opinions is pretty full on bro, that's the whole point of opinions - they're not necessarily facts. Controlling speech is always a big no-no IMO.. surely hearing a few conspiracy theories won't do your delicate ears that much harm!

    Fuck it, if you're gunna live on the edge hit a few Chinese rice wines.. that were made in Wuhan.

    Mortality rate is not that bad. The common Flu has taken out more people this year alone. I'm not worried about it. When it's your time to go, you go.

    I went full on prepper 10 years ago, slightly overboard (its addictive once you start). I do not have a nuclear bunker, but not a million miles off. Probably need some new batteries and a pack of pot noodles and my family is good to go :D

    The virus is likely not to be fatal unless you are in your very senior years. The flu kills more people.

    You're really sensationalizing and being hysterical.

    If you're healthy and young (<60) there's really no need to panic.

    I've spent more time reading this thread than worrying about it...

    I realise how this sounds. I'm sorry to the people who are directly affected by it, I do not mean to offend.

    My meaning was that personally, I think that the UK is pretty well equipped to keeping it out and dealing with what gets in.

    The chans are saying the gov is trying to figure out how to lock down San Fran, and remove So. Cal homeless to camps. We will see. Currently, the Trump admin is requesting $ 1 Billion to help fight this thing, so it appears to be more than "just the flu bro"

    Short of shutting down their borders completely, I doubt any country could keep it out long-term.

    Since the UK hasn't already done that, I'd definitely suspect it ends up there - there's no way to know how many infected may already be in the country.

    It's already here.

    As of 24 February, a total of 6,536 people have been tested in the UK, of which 6,527 were confirmed negative and 9 positive. These figures do not include the 4 confirmed cases from the Diamond Princess cruise ship who arrived in the UK and received test results from Japan. These will be included once we receive the UK tests for these patients.

    I still think that we are pretty well equipped to deal with it.

    I think that most places are to be honest, other than the most infected, originating areas.

    However, I am surprised this thread has gone for as long as it has. I feel like there are vulnerable people in the world, some of which will be in the IM community.

    Spreading fear amongst people who are here for IM is not something I agree with. I would like to think that we all have enough internet knowledge and critical thinking abilities to search outside of a IM forum for information if we want it.

    It's all bullshit.
    But great chance to make some profits on it. Guess that's what all stores are doing right now.

    People should get servers in several locations and connect from there. Pretty simple to set up proxies or vpns. Obv commercial solutions will be blocked first, but unknown, private soluttions only used by 1-2 persons will not be blocked.

    There's always a way.
