Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is bullshiat

China, March 15: "We're down to single-digit new cases per day, we've beaten this!"
China, March 16: 23 new cases....and so it begins again....

So...travel to China for the cure?  I'm very confused with all the info that is coming out.

Yeah this is the problem. We aren't going to be able to sustain social distancing for years as they say we might have too. It's unfortunate but I don't see how it is done.

I made it as far as the headline, saw "and cured in India", and promptly closed the tab.

They may have given that to a patient and they got better.

Tells you nothing. That's why we have double-blind trials, to make sure they actually work.

It's the Daily Star. I bet the cure has superb tits.

China's failing coronavirus numbers are weak compared to ours. Very weak. The US is on the verge of the most tremendous coronavirus outbreak ever seen. A really terrific outbreak. The best, believe me.

CDC is recommending you still do so.

The UK's original "herd immunity" plan may yet start to look quite sensible.

You know how we know you don't know about the expected shortage of hospital beds and equipment?

*cough* bullshiat *cough*

Oh crap, I'd better get that checked out.

It's all fun and games until someone with the virus comes from another country to an area outside Hubei and starts a second outbreak.

Yes, and China would have us believe before they locked down, enough people got out to infect the world, but not anywhere else in their country...

Yeah we ALL get that. Every single article on Fark reminds us every five minutes. My response was we are gonna need a plan because 18 months of lockdown is viable either.

We just need to be sure to send them a few planes full of people escaping Italy so that it can get spread again within their country.

Or China is lying their asses off.

A month isn't gonna work for a lot of people. Unless they just start getting checks in the mail from uncle sugar.

Doctors at Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital, Jaipur, treated an Italian tourist with a daily combination of two drugs useful in HIV treatment- Lopinavir and Ritonavir.


You know, I remember reading that these HIV drugs could be useful in the treatment of Covid-19 this a while back and thinking if the the Trump Administration would even allow drugs used to treat "the gay plague" to be used here.

Oh, irony, you are a damn cruel mistress.  Just think if the man in charge of the plan, Mike Pence, has to be the one to order these drugs into use.
