Default What’s that?

Wuhan virus?🤔. What’s that, something new? Not another novel virus. At this rate we’re doomed.😳 We haven’t even figured out how to deal with covid-19 yet! One thing after another..

Currently Florida is basically flat showing slight increases daily of infections.
Being outdoors in sunlight (ultraviolet light) does help kill virus on surfaces quickly where being in an indoor enviorment and close contact with infected people help spread virus.

,,, for this anti-Chinese sentiment.' how can 1 not understand it ? its not ad hominem but ad government,,, whether weaponized or not, i don't think anyone can yet prove but conspiracists are having a field day, no ?

'Not using a tool to save lives is shooting ourselves in the heart.' heart = feelings, head = objectivity,,, feelings are nice but head rules in the real world,,, obviously those who use their head are often able to sway those who only rely on feelings

have only been to mainland china once - 3 week tour - did NOT meet 1 chinaman OR woman who wasn't pleasant, friendly, &/or helpful,,, i believe most people are the same - given the choice, we want to: 1, live in peace; 2, feed, clothe, & house our children; & 3, feel safe for our children's future.

the chinese government is a far different story & those who do not recognize that would, either by ignorance or stupidity, contribute to endangering my family.

I would have to totally disregard anyones opinion who believes the Chinese government is on the up and up. There is way too much evidence on both sides of the aisle to support not only they withheld info about the virus that has brought harm to the entire world, but also that they spy on us trying to steal our research on vaccines. Plus, it is a well known fact that they have been buying up american food companies in an attempt to control the American food chain. They have taxed the US disproportionately for years and as a result we are billions in debt to them. I would be very suspect of anyone in America that believes the Chinese are good for America.

- A joint MIT and Harvard study has determined that the Wuhan Virus has difficulty transmitting in temperatures over 77 degrees. They have determined that the rate of transmission drops an average of 1.7% for each degree at 77 or above. Adding in humidity and wind enhances the decrease. Today will be around 90 and humid. You have a 22% to 25% LESS chance of getting infected.
I believe that it's been fairly common knowledge that it's very difficult to contract this virus while outdoors. The problem that I see is that we go from our air conditioned homes, to our air conditioned cars and into air conditioned stores and business. And the people that work in those businesses are in that air conditioned environment for eight hours.

The chances of contracting the virus in a business is not reduced by 22%-25%. And the chance of you transferring it someone in your home is not reduced, unless you keep your AC set above 77*.

Everyone is focused on if the Chinese Government is on the up and up. Maybe someone can give an example of a Government that is on the up and up?

It is all politics and the simple fact of life is everything is sadly all about politics.

If only we could think bigger than The USA and think about mankind.

Just sayin

Sparty presents the “facts” and gets a bogus argument in response. It’s really hard to reason with the opposition when they have been influenced by fake news.
