Quote from: Hydra009 on January 31, 2020, 05:54:02 PMThe number of cases jumped from just shy of 10,000 yesterday to 11,300 right now. The numbers outside China seem to be similarly climbing. A lot of new countries on the tally, which is really worrying. I thought this could stay relatively contained, but it looks like it's going to be a global phenonemon.Get plenty of sleep and wash your hands regularly, everyone!

I mean, only a hundred years ago between 50-100 million people died to the flu... now consider how much smaller the Earth's population was and how it wasn't nearly as interlinked as it is today. The flu is always terrifying, but tuberculosis... that one is truly terrifying and the most likely to really fuck humanity up sooner rather than later.
Quote from: Shiranu on January 31, 2020, 07:18:07 PMYeah, I'm pretty much fucked if it spreads. I face-to-face interact with several hundred people a day, 4-5 days a week, handling cash.
