Could have started anywhere. But, people are on a anti-China binge right now, so facts don't matter.

Why are we dealing with something called "COVID-19" when the first official death from it and the actual public acknowledgement that it was an issue didn't happen until 2020?

In 100 years will some dipsnip call out a president for calling it the "Coronavirus flu of 2019?"

Yet we actually have the FACT that COVID-19 did start in Wuhan, China... you'd likely also take issue with that fact?

No, what you said is not a fact.

Wuhan is where it was first recognized. Which is fact.

Yeah, and China said the American army brought it there.

Maybe, sounds political, who knows.

Although there are some people who do know, very smart people. But we don't listen to them.

I thought this was a thread about blaming Trump for the Spanish Flu.

I know Trump was responsible for the sinking of the Lusitania and for the stock market crash of '29. (That's 1929 for those who don't understand).

The bastard!


I blame him for the resurgence of the bad combover.

That was one of the best virus movie ever. This one soldier keeps running away from these viruses just to deliver a message to the general to stop them from attacking the viruses on the other side of the field.

It looks like it should have been done in Asia before the Navy got infected by viruses.

He did that, too.

Do you ever get tired of semantics? COVID-19 is the disease that the Novel Coronavirus causes in humans and yes, that disease absolutely started in Wuhan as, by definition, a specific disease begins where the first identified case contracted it. Are you tired of semantics now?

Since Trumps grandfather died of the Spanish Flu, it's possible that when Trump was growing up, his family called it the 1917 flu because that's when it started 'back then' and it stuck with him through family history.

I dunno..

I think there is the very real possibility that we essentially ensured another wave of illness and disease with general population lockdowns. Maybe not necessarily SARS-CoV-2 or covid19, but communicable diseases in general.

Coupled with a medical system with exceedingly low occupancy and layoffs, precipitated by our actions, and we might be looking at a very tricky situation.

Add the habit of doubling down, on doubling down of mistakes, duplicitousness, massive amounts of money changing hands, and it might be one helluva self-fulfilling prophecy.

Right, then why is the Spanish Flu named the Spanish flu when it didn't even start in Spain?

You need definitive proof to say that the virus started in Wuhan. There is good evidence it did, if you said that, then yes I'd agree. But I am sick and tired of fear mongering and finger pointing. The pandemic, which started off as a epidemic in Wuhan is also correct. But where it all started, patient zero, or, bat zero, is still unknown.

There is evidence and cases of people who weren't even near the lab or wet markets near the lab who had the virus. Either way, pin pointing where it started is grasping at straws. And it still doesn't take away from the fact we are now living with it. So we either deal with it, or we keep yelling at each other of where it started for unknown reasons other then looking for someone to blame.

I don't know, Adolf definitely 'did it in' for the toothbrush mustache of Chaplin fame.
