That virus we aren’t supposed to mention is Chinese (is totally Chinese)

A few articles mentioning the virus:

Italy’s doing better, but Spain is not so hot.

Breitbart: In the last 24 hours, 766 people have died in Italy from the Chinese coronavirus, bringing the nation’s overall death toll to 14,681 as of Friday — an increase of 5.5 percent in one day. The percentage, however, has been on a decline for the past few days, while Italian officials say they believe that Italy has reached its “peak” as “hospitals are starting to breathe” due to less emergency room admissions. read more


Joe Biden Now Supports Trump’s China Travel Ban He Said Was ‘Hysterical Xenophobia’.

Democrat presidential front runner Joe Biden now supports President Trump’s ban on travel from China.

The day after Trump announced the ban in late January, Biden posted a tweet claiming actions need to be taken in the name of “science,” and not with Trump’s alleged “record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering.”

Idiot.



Judge Slaps Down Lawsuit Seeking Coronavirus Curbs on Immigration Courts.

A federal judge quashed a lawsuit that could have allowed migrants and lawyers to prevent hearings in the immigration courts, according to a report by Oregon Public Broadcasting.

The result is another win for the administration in its back-and-forth legal war with the many pro-migration groups who oppose President Donald Trump’s successful clampdown on illegal migration.


Trudeau says Canada won’t retaliate for US mask export ban.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada won’t bring retaliatory or punitive measures after the Trump administration announced it would prevent the export of N95 protective masks.


TORONTO (AP) — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Saturday that Canada won’t bring retaliatory or punitive measures against the United States after the Trump administration announced it would prevent the export of N95 protective masks.
President Trump said he would prevent the export of N95 protective masks to ensure they are available in the U.S.
“We need the masks. We don’t want any other people getting it,” Trump said.
Trudeau said he will speak to Trump in the coming days. He said his officials are having constructive conversations with American officials.

Retaliatory or punitive measures against the US?
LOL! That’s adorable.


China Donates 1,000 Ventilators to New York

Wait, it gets ridiculouser…

Andrew Cuomo Thanks Chinese Government for Ventilator Donation

Coronavirus testing kits made in China had a 70 percent failure rate in Spain. Netherlands authorities recalled 600,000 defective medical masks imported from China.

I’m sure it’ll be fine.


Here’s some good news:

Common Anti-Parasite Drug May Kill Coronavirus in Under 48 Hours, Say Researchers.

Researchers in Australia report that Ivermectin, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat parasites, appears to be effective in treating the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus (COVID-19). The drug is widely available and can be “repurposed” for this application, doctors said.

  1. Can we please get rid of all these damn internet trolls who keep hijacking the threads here at IOTW. How do we stop annoying jerk spammers and just who the hell are they in the first place? They’re almost worse than larry the idiot liberal and more annoying.

  2. “I Survived the Wuhan Flu
    (and all I got was this T-Shirt)”

    Masks that don’t work, tests that fail, we’ve already passed the “critical” 14-day-juncture, N95 masks won’t filter a virus ANYWAY, and we’re still playing pretend and cowering in our homes? WTF is up with us?
    And where’s my check?

  3. Ivermectin!…. I give that to my dog as a heart worm preventative. And just in case some imbecile is on here and thinks THEY can just consume heart worm preventative and they’ll be ok…. Don’t do it.
    Get a HUMAN Doctor opinion not a Vet. Silly.

  4. Geoff, when they are here we don’t have Free Speech Forum posting and vice versa. Anybody else noticed that?

  5. So, only N95 masks are effective enough for doctors and nurses, but one sheet of TP (if you have any) is good enough for the rest of the 350 million of us? Calls are for the general public to cover with plain cloth, leave the N95 masks to ‘professionals’.

  6. I’m sleeping better knowing that Dementia Joe Obiden Bama’s expert team of social media consumer consultants have been monitoring developments and printing them in really big letters on flash cards, so that Malarkey Joe can look down at them and give spontaneous answers to softball questions from the MSDM. His rapid response team has shaken most of the dust and dead weight off from the primaries, and it’s only a matter of months until the public realizes how well prepared Obiden Bama is to accept the nomination.

  7. That Chinese guy in that picture looks like he’s super massively constipated. Like he hasn’t taken a dump in a couple of weeks or so. He’s gonna use all the TP just by himself to clean up that big mess he’s about to drop.

  8. “ Ivermectin, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat parasites”

    I think we need to smear that stuff along all of our borders to keep the parasites out.

    Because no mask is good enough (as in “just as good”) for the vast majority of the United States. But it’s not The United States’ way to tell people buying the useless, “no”. Nor to take the money of the most appropriate, rather than the highest offering, buyer. China wiped out (for shipping back to China) a few cities’ commercial supplies, before those cities were hit with the virus. Letting “Boomers spending their great-granchildrens’ inheritance” (or just people with “vacation homes”), bid against people who are exposed hour after hour, day after day, won’t leave any for anyone who uses them. (Just like all hoarders.) So telling them “Just use a scarf, you’ll be fine” is not a bad strategy.

  10. N95: filters particulates larger than (minimun) 300 nm.
    Virus: 20 to 30 nm.

    Most viruses are smaller than the voids in rubber or nitrile gloves – it’s the randomness of the locations of the voids that protect – but pure dumb luck that one glove has or hasn’t any alignment of voids.

    EVERYBODY in the medical industry (must) knows this. They are feeding us used oats (oats processed by a horse).
    Ah, well.
