First Case Of New Coronavirus Detected In U.S.
Merrit Kennedy

The first case of an infection with a new coronavirus has been discovered in the U.S. A person traveling from Wuhan, China, to Washington state was diagnosed with pneumonia last week. Subsequent tests showed that the person has the virus, which can cause pneumonia. In severe cases the coronavirus can lead to death. The case was detected prior to the implementation of screening at three U.S. airports last Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce details at a press conference this afternoon.

About 300 cases of the virus and six deaths have been reported in China, and health officials there and around the world are ramping up precautions to stem the spread.

We'll be offshore for the next few months, human-to-human transmission isn't possible if you don't allow other humans anywhere near you. Do not approach this vessel, I am heavily armed and will open fire. Consider this fair warning, you'll receive no other.

It's time to change your name back to Crumple, Crumple. You can't outrun your past. You've always been Crumple. You will always be Crumple. Kind of like the caretaker from The Shining...

He actually started off as "Scrumple".

This is the best time he's having since the Ebola outbreak. Starting in November 2012 462 of his posts referred to it by name. Scrumple thought the expected massive reduction of the human population will be a good thing.

This is the start of the zombie virus of my fantasies! :P

I've watched all the documentaries; "Night of the living dead", "Dawn of the dead", "world war Z" etc...

I'm well up for it. :grin:

Are you sure? I thought he started as Crumple, then changed to Scrumple later, and then Cronus... :think:

Yes, I'm sure. You can be too by looking up his very first post.

I intend to wear the skins of my enemies, as long as they're properly disinfected first, of course. Since we won't have a pump out facility we'll have lots of urine to cure the hides. We'll just shit in the ocean, our output for a whole year won't amount to one whale dump. Besides, who's gonna complain? We can even fish with dynamite. Good times comin', man. Libertarian Zombie Water World.

What about nuclear power stations? These zombie movies always forget about those. With no one around to manage them, they will all go boom in a short time. The radioactive clouds will reach you on the ocean unless you are very lucky.

Chinese people in urban areas wearing masks isn't actually that unusual. It's like Germans wearing bike helmets.

Germans only seem to wear bike helmets when riding, and only then, in the Netherlands. I don't know that Germans bicycle anywhere but in Germany or the Netherlands. They know helmets won't protect them when riding in France or Italy.
