Anyone paying much attention to this Coronavirus situation? Is this how the zombie apocalypse starts?

It’s stunning to me how much this is affecting the stock market.

I saw airline stocks have dropped quite a bit. Might be time to buy.

The symptoms are the same as a cold and I don’t think it’s killed anyone who was baseline healthy - only the elderly who are more vulnerable. I don’t know what the big deal is. But you know, media.

Quit eating bats and the "three squeaks."

That's all I have taken from this whole ordeal.

I think the info we are getting from China is all straight lies......its way worse if they are trying to build hospitals in a week.

After reading this article, I am better understanding the effect:

While I do think the media is sensationalizing things, that opinion places undeserved faith on the accuracy of reports out of China.

The number infected, and the mortality rate, is almost certainly higher than China is reporting.  Plus, given the huge increase (@ 10-fold) in the number of cases in the past week, the death toll will probably rise considerably in the next week or two as @ 90% of cases only became symptomatic in the past week.

 

That said, with the market down @7% as a result, it sure does look like a great buying opportunity.

I still haven’t heard anything that warrants all the outrage. It’s the fucking flu. And it’s killing mainly elderly people in rural China who probably aren’t the healthiest in the first place.

I can’t imagine how I would be reacting if I and any of my family were on a quarantined cruise ship.

Interesting twitter thread on the virus. Wild conspiracy theory or plausible scenario?

I doubt some dude who ran for senate with less than 2000 followers has all the answers.

I will say one thing..... if there’s any country who would bio-nuke itself for population control, it’d be China.
