One country we have zero to little news from is North Korea. While the border with the South is an armed camp, and despite closing the border with China is a bit more porous than Crazy Kim would like has perhaps set up a perfect storm in the hermit kingdom. The most glaring evidence was the lack of a parade on the 72'd anniversary of their armed forces.

Given the overall poor state of health for most of the NK population (remember all of those tape worms that defecting solider had) and iffy healthcare with little to no reserve, means that if it takes hold it would be very difficult to stop even with Chinese support. On the other hand given that he can snap his fingers and literally kill an entire city with impunity, they may be able to confine it for a while

Good to see this brought up.
Are we hearing anything reliable about the virus from Russia?

Russia right next to China I'm having a hard time believing they only have 2 cases I'm mean the US has 12 .

Yeah, we haven't heard much of anything from NK lately, If they already have not a corona virus problem, they will probably be getting one shortly. They do trade with China somewhat.

And we still have people saying this is fear mongering and everything will be fine.

They'll be the first ones rioting.

Classic reaction of a person who can't handle a crisis of this size.


Refusing to acknowledge that something is wrong is a way of coping with emotional conflict, stress, painful thoughts, threatening information and anxiety. You can be in denial about anything that makes you feel vulnerable or threatens your sense of control,

I agree only because the flu kills way more but we don't talk about it because we are numb to it.

I don't need to riot, I have guns and my neighbors don't. It'll be more like permanent borrowing.

There was a post claiming to have reports of cases already in North Korea through Chinese smugglers.

Coronavirus outbreak in North Korea ... Now, there's something that just hadn't crossed my mind ... But, my, what a nightmare!

An probably, as the report says, inevitable given the geographic proximity and economic dependency. We may never know - at least, not for a long time hence - and I could see the nut-jobs at the top of that food-chain doing some ugly things to try to contain it. When megalomaniacal psychopaths are in control with not checks or accountability in place ... Well, let's not even go there.

Don't think of it as borrowing.

Your just an ambassador of America's first cashless society experiment.

I like your thinking, it'll weigh even less on my conscious using your thought process.

Its fear mongering till its not. I would rather be prepared and say the sky is falling than not IMHO as once the infection reaches a critical mass than will spiral beyond our ability to control.

ITs this overreaction that has kept this at bay in the US and elsewhere for now

I haven't heard about many cases in Africa. Being as the Chinese are supposed to be all over African countries.
