Oh, FFS!  2 pandemics at once?

Let's get to the important question: Can it be caught by eating bacon?

The pic of that pig would make a good "soon" caption.

Wonder why all these novel coronavirus and avian flu diseases always come from China?

That's farking why. Shopping in a slaughter house is more common than shopping in a supermarket in some places. When half the city tromps through the slaughterhouse to make their purchases, you get a lot of novel viral mutations that cross the species barrier.

China has been told to clean up their wet markets for farking decades. Increasing urbanization is only going to make it worse, and it's pretty farking evident the area this point the wet markets are a global threat.

Swine Flu 2: How do you do?

I had Iranian War for July. Is it too late to switch it to swine flu?

Deadly virus ready to emerge from China. This is not a repeat from December

WTF?  Just nuke China from orbit already.

The good news is there's 180something countries taking things like this seriously. The bad news is there's 190some countries. The fark news is I live in one of those last ones.

It's okay, everyone. It won't be a threat if we all just collectively agree to not eat any more pork ever again.  We can survive without bacon, can we not?  CAN WE NOT?!?

They didn't mention how serious the symptoms are and it sounds like the current flu vaccines can adapted easily enough. Seems like non-starter.

Yup. Most diseases come from animals... which comes from humans close to animals... which happens in poor countries.

China is doing this, Mexico is doing this... most of the world is doing this. Until we fix this shiat worldwide, we'll always have pandemics and new diseases.

If we werent stupid humans, instead of wasting money on the military, we would invest our ressources into modernizing poor countries so people wouldnt live in shiathole conditions so this kind of crap wouldnt happen... the only ones living near animals would be those who ''grow'' them... the chances of diseases jumping species would go down by a billion fold.

Seems like the best time for another pandemic, while I'm still wearing a mask and washing my hands from the first one.

The bad news is that air travel between poor and rich countries still happen... not poor people, but rich entitled scumbags travelling and spreading diseases.

Its not the poor farmer from mainland china, forced to live with his pigs that's spreading disease, its the wall street guy who went to hong kong during the week-end to eat some weird chinese food and bang some hookers and then came back to NYC.

TBF you're right and it's a huge farking problem worldwide. To be equally fair China is authoritarian enough to do it immediately if they wanted to.

Simple solution: we nuke the shiat out of China

They refuse to keep their shiat under control. They insist on cultivating one deadly pathogen after the next in their livestock markets. They fark around, lie, coverup and get people killed all over the world

It's time America steps the fark up and does what America does best
Bomb the shiat out of something

This has nothing to do with political ideology, you insipid twit

This is straight up willful ignorance and refusal to buckle under, and endure the pain and expense of doing what is right

Fact is, if this was happening in America right now Trump would Fire the heads of the FDA and replace them with idiot lackeys just to appease the factory meat farmers

China is simply refusing to abolish their antiquated live stock markets and move to modern, sanitary means of procuring livestock in a marketplace setting and as long as they insist on keeping their tradition then the rest of the world will pay the price

Lance Robdon: It's okay, everyone. It won't be a threat if we all just collectively agree to not eat any more pork ever again.  We can survive without bacon, can we not?  CAN WE NOT?!?


Wait.
ROFLMAO.
Maybe this is the real reason pork is prohibited in ancient religions.

They are omnivores.  Which means they typically carry a number of nasty parasites.  Some priests figured out a long time ago that eating such beasties was a bad idea...

But, while saying that.
Slipped a little poke in, too. Friendly poke in the ribs.
Mmmmm ribs.
