The world should prepare for a potential coronavirus pandemic, the World Health Organisation has warned - although so far it's stopped short of officially declaring one.

With more than a thousand cases confirmed from South Korea and Iran to Italy, the WHO said now was the time for all countries to make sure they're ready.
Here, Downing Street insisted the UK was "prepared for all eventualities".

As long as the IN&OUT Burgers drive thru is open..who needs to stock up? Dominoes Pizza does deliver! America is unlike other countries we are fortunate to have alternative resources ..tons of FAST FOOD restaurants! Who knew it would come in handy during a pandemic! I’ll take a Big Mac and a filet fish please. 😃 as long as the preparers are wearing gloves and masks, we’ll be okay. No need to panic over food.

Reduce the population of Swine and you imediately will have more Food. And donate money - this is a war of an “Alien“ organism against humanity. And we need to fight it like and war - as a group. Because every human infected more is like a small biolab for the virus developing new more deadly strains... www.globalgiving.org/projects/coronavirus-relief-fund/

Not a pandemic yet cuz there is some money to be made off of so.e bond sales and as long as they don't use that word, and they need to keep that word from being used until june that's when the bonds ripen. After then they can use the word.

No. There is a checklist to complete in order to confirm a pandemic. All boxes have been checked off as of the beginning of this week. We are in a pandemic. Stop using terms like potential as this is dishonest and your dishonesty is spurring on panic.

Faced with the incompetence and shame of the Italian government, Japan is different. Japan found that the new crown virus was originally the birthplace of the United States. The Asahi Shimbun immediately issued an announcement stating the facts to make the ugly face of the United States public. This is the difference in personality.

Alcalise your blood with 30 deep breaths followed by holding all the air out of your lounges for 2+ mins, 2-3 sets of this while sitting or lying down massively increase oxegen in the blood and is the key to the Wim Hof method, in this state you should submerce yourself in an icy bath (don't put feet in first) every cell in your body turns on and generates heat 🔥 this massively increases immunity and puts the fight into your own hands.

How can there be a pandemic when WHO just changes the meaning of what is considered a pandemic? Just keep lying to the world till millions are dead. This is going to be the SHTF that everyone thought could never happen.

Of course slash interest rates, rather than invest in becoming less dependent on China and improving our healthcare systems to actually be able to deal with a pandemic.

Less than 3k have died out of 8 billion people.

MEDIA HYPE The economy moves some 20 million dollars in trade. So, subtract 2.5 percent, roughly a quarter of a billion dollars, meaning that more than 19 billion is still circulating. Guess how much of that is waste and debt, not real money anyway. Only the smallest retailers would feel the pinch if supply of a few items dropped. The media is trying to make this bigger and more tragic than it really is. Influenza kills more people every year than COVID 19 has so far.

But you have to admit that the Coronavirus is doing some good :) Reduced pollution as people are not travelling the same. Looks like aircraft & cruise ships will be affected & they are the biggest polluters by far, so that will be good for the planet. A cruise ship, for example, emits as much pollution as 1million cars & cruise ships are totally unnecessary!! ruvid.net/video/video-cP6xbWDvAN0.html

WHO should have warned people more seriously 2 months ago -.- now the panic buying is setting in, in Europe. Lucking, in HK we started getting our supplies back, and it seems people are doing less in terms of panic buying. I say give it a few weeks, stock will hopefully be back. Stay safe and healthy everyone.

As an italian i’d like to point out that the crazy shelf emptying that’s been going on these days is not the people’s fault, italian’s news and newspapers have been focusing all the attention on this damn virus and saying things unclearly so that they sound much worse than they are, causing the general public to panic, anyone who doesn’t have internet access or isn’t educated enough can’t help but be a victim of italian medias trying to scare people either to sell more or god knows why. also the doctor that spoke in a really poor english was right about the fact that we only appear to be one of the countries with the majority of cases in europe only because they’re not testing for this virus in other countries, the fact that italy is trying to contain the outbreak as much as possible is the reason why we are testing anyone with a cold, and therefore register more cases.
