A meeting of foreign ministers from the Group of Seven nations ended Wednesday without a customary joint statement because members wouldn’t agree with a U.S. request to refer to the novel coronavirus as the “Wuhan virus,” according to an official familiar with the matter.

Goddamn, we sure do pick interesting hills to die on. In other news, spanish politicians are now pushing for the 1918 pandemic to be referred to as the "Kansas flu" going forward.

Nice to see other politicians are as petty as ours.

Fixed my original post for you.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

That rate is gonna skyrocket in crisis mode cause they don’t have the time or resources to test healthy people.

Also the olds, but #1 probably has the bigger effect.

It's still terrifying. From what I have read, it appears the disease takes a week or two to kill people. That might raise the rate in countries that have a lot of new cases.

Without a doubt. We’ve barely gotten started here.

Yup, this is just like chapter 2 of the story. Next week this time will not be fun. Nor the week after that.

The Trump/Cuomo feud stands in pretty stark contrast to Obama/Christie during Hurricane Sandy.

It’s unfathomable to me that ppl are still allowed to travel out of the nyc metro.  Especially via air.

TX just signed an order that anyone flying in from NY, NJ, CT, or New Orleans has to quarantine for 14 days.

It's really hard for me to wrap my head around the death toll from the Imperial College Report. I don't believe we will see anywhere near 1 million deaths.
What is this based on?

The disease appears to be ramping down in China and they have less than 10,000 deaths.

Not to pick on you rage, but how you feel about this statement right now?

Why don’t they add to 100%? I’m upset.

I would still be surprised if we see more than 500,000 deaths in the US.

Because the death toll is so low right now. We'll see how those ratings shift once we start getting into the 10's of thousands of deaths.

People do not want to believe they’re being blindly lead during a crisis. Trump will have to royally screw up. Good chance he will. Just saying that’s the bar.
