*BREAKING NEWS* New strain of Common cold could spread around the world!

It's only a big deal now because it's new, a virus starts off strong and gets weaker as it spreads. Of course it's origin is going to be hit the hardest, because that's where the virus literally incubated and manifested itself. And for the most part it's been contained, give it two months and this will fizzle out. If not, then perhaps we need to worry, the timing of the virus is a little suspect tho.


Where'd you get this? Viruses may mutate as they spread - but that could just as easily make them more virulent, not less. The whole mechanism of a virus is to infect and re-program host cells to produce copies - identical copies - of the virus.

Flu, ebola, smallpox, polio, measles, marburg, hantavirus, rabies, these all remain very dangerous, despite being known for decades (or centuries.)

Survivors may develop antibodies, so if exposed again, it may be less consequential. Which is what vaccines do - exposing the immune system to a weakened / killed virus so it learns an immune response.

They may develop treatments that are effective at managing symptoms, and may develop anti-viral meds that directly attack (or interfere with) the virus.

But it's not just gonna go away if we ignore it.


It already had mutated... the first was rather fast: airborne... the second some weeks later: waterborne....

Wonder what next step is.... more resilient ( not that it needs it currently... )
I guess enabling more super spreaders would be the worst to happen at this point.

But I do wonder why he is allowed to challenge the governments statements. He was out pretty early stating that the infection numbers were wrong..... is it just because he sits in Hong Kong?

ETA - Yet ANOTHER (sub-1000) poster out of the woodwork with some quality DOOM PORN!! Where do all these people come from???????????

Yet another uninviting (above 1000) poster coming from the well respected ATS. Such welcoming people, so respectful.

1 to 2% death rate is NOT the common cold

And you tell me how many people have died from this virus outside of China?

Here in Canada so far zero, and thee (off the top of my head) patients have been release and living normal lives.


1% of total infected are outside of China so it's easily treatable until you have 100s of people all needing help and infecting each other...

I don't agree with the hype or downplaying of the virus but I've never in my short lifetime seen entire cities on lockdown.

And again.... why do people keep calculating mortality by comparing dead to infected....?? Look at total amount of dead and recovered and then calculate. Number will be high now but go down over time.

True, especially in public places.

Yes, it's hard to say. I've seen whistleblower videos, etc.

I'm thinking this is just another layer perpetrated in an effort to manifest Agenda 21. It is bio-warfare...it's the overlords having their way. We cannot be attached.

Yes true. But I guess you're not interested in the perspective that it was perpetrated. That the virus was contrived in Atlanta, CDC hq...not far from the Georgia Guide Stones. Nothing is a coincidence however, we should not panic. My choice is to surrender to my God for only She can control these things, pray for peace and forgiveness and to make amends w/ my parents in the coming weeks. blah but must be done.

I'm of the mind it is against the Chinese, specifically regarding Port Khorgos which opened in December and the potential to devalue the dollar and cause mass destabilization...which will come sooner or later.

Another HK expert, John Nicholls, a pathology professor at the University of Hong Kong

He says it is basically severe case of the common cold...



Coronavirus expert says he knows when the virus 'will burn itself out,' according to leaked analysis

Conference call with Coronavirus expert


Weather is a factor that effects how this new coronavirus can spread


"Three things the virus does not like: 1. Sunlight, 2. Temperature, and 3. Humidity"

"For that reason, he also added that he doesn't expect areas such as Australia, Africa and the Southern hemisphere to see high rates of infection because they are in the middle of summer."

"Compared to SARS and MERS, we are talking about a coronavirus that has a mortality rate of eight to 10 times less deadly to SARS to MERS," Nicholls is quoted as having said on the conference call. "So, a correct comparison is not SARS or MERS but a severe cold. Basically, this is a severe form of the cold."

"I think it will burn itself out in about six months," Nicholls said."

Glad you got that off your chest. While we are all special we are ALL still subject to the fourfold miseries: birth, disease, old age and death. We are all subjected to difficulties from the same sources: our own bodies and minds, other living
entities and the Earth (volcanoes, storms, wind, etc).

However, if we know it's going to rain, it's nice to have rain gear.

you shouldn't quit your day job, buddy.

i am a degree-bearing biotechnologist and i can honestly say that i have seen few people with a poorer understanding of "basic evolution" than what you have just exampled.

wierd that you would try to use your pseudo knowledge so powerfully.... i believe that makes you, quantifiably, a fool.

Adaptation is basic evolution. The more a virus spreads the more either beneficial or negative mutations will happen.

Every person who becomes infected with this or any other virus has different immune system responses, therefore in order to keep up with each host the virus must adapt to such a hostile environment.

Am I missing something here or we just going to ignore all the driving forces behind evolution and you just gonna shove your degree in my face and tell me I'm wrong?

Your kind of right. When a virus infects a host, it replicates, during the time it replicates there is a chance it can mutate for better or worse it’s genome. Theoretically it is not mutating each time it’s trying to infect a host. Mutation is highly probable in virus’s because I don’t think anything else on the planet replicates as much as a virus. 🤷‍♂️ Coming from memory, from books I had read, and internet articles.
