I bet air quality complicated matters.

Upon reading this I immediately ran out to the barn, grabbed a chicken and vaccinated him. Don't know how he's going to react to the herd's  Clostridium Perfringens Types C & D Antitoxin we use on the Angus, but I dutifully did as told. Immediately got something vaccinated.

This particular strain is fairly new to humans and it's been quite effective thus far so while I never advise one to panic - it might be an jolly good idea to stock up your pantry.

Bontesla: This particular strain is fairly new to humans and it's been quite effective thus far

There are 1,354,040,000 people in China. Millions have probably already been exposed by now, and only 6 have died as a result.

The way these things are presented it's as if everyone who gets exposed dies as a result, but that's blatant fearmongering detached from scientific reason.

I'm glad to see the same logic applied to gun deaths vs. car deaths.

I think the goal is to avoid that.

WHO's goal?

Exactly. The answer's right there.

What answer?
