When it will be more serious people will begin to wear gloves and then protective glasses too.

What I wonder is when the religious people will lost their mind, there isnt a single case in Turkey but a few of them already started to talking about the Mesiah, Armageddon and things like that.

now that the doctor who first tried to warn about it (and was shut up my the police) is dead, we should have a proper name to stick to the virus: „Wenliang Virus“ in memory of Li Wenliang.

First they bump up the numbers, then record a decline. Is it the stock market? Numbers from China ain't credible. Wait and see what happens in places where whistleblowers don't vanish away.

Not sure, but you definitely need to stay away from Vegemite. 15 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in Australia to date.

And before anyone pipes up about what they think about Vegemite: STFU! It's a delicacy! And incredibly useful as axle grease.

Not sure if you've grasped this yet auf, but I don't find the fact that you can construct mostly grammatically correct sentences to indicate anything about the truth value of the semantic content of those sentences.

In other words: you're flapping your gums with a damn sight more confidence than you're justified in possessing, as usual.
