They are lying to us so we continue to shop, and go to work using us as experiments with their numbers. It's worse then what they are saying. They only care about the economy but it will collapse.

It's already a pandemic. "A pandemic is an epidemic of disease that has spread across a large region; for instance multiple continents, or even worldwide."

I know the Chinese nurses and doctors are doing their best. I pray for them and their family. I think the nurses and doctors are among those dying. :(

WHO is a threat to safety. They are too political, and influenced by governments. They take the government stance first, before the sensible stance.

Is the WHO in China’s pocket? I respect the countries that have taken measures to protect their people and enforcing travel bans. China needs to be quarantined from other countries.

Coronavirus has no cure, no vaccine, no symptoms, airborne, and 5 million were able to escape quarantine; therefore, shutdown the conductors ( planes, ships, trains, and borders).
