" The covid-19 coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China."

"The Chinese government has issued false statements accusing the U.S. military of starting the covid-19 coronavirus."

"There is considerable government intelligence and considerable reporting from the media that China is massively underreporting the covid-19 cases and deaths in their country."

"There have been media reports alleging that the covid-19 coronavirus was accidently released from a Chinese govenrment laboratory."





"MSNBC's parent company is building a theme park in Beijing, China with (massive) financial investment from the Chinese government. Judging from the recent situation with the NBA, the Chinese Communist Party has been known to take a disproportionately large response against its financial partners if and when they criticize China. Therefore, the unwillingness of MSNBC to criticize China in any way is seen by some observers as an unannounced conflict of interest that has deformed their reporting."


The above are all factual statements. These statements are neither political nor racist. They do not slur an ethnic group nor espouse a partisan political viewpoint. They may be helpful in that they inform the understanding of the covid-19 outbreak and the evolving U.S relationship with the Chinese government during this crisis.

Now, let's get back to discussing the math of the Coronavirus projections.





Using this 'logic", is it surprising that fox is attacking China? After all, the Universal theme park Comcast is building in China will be directly competing with Disney's theme parks. Anything bad for China is good for Disney. Makes sense if you bang your head a few times and squint into the sun long enough.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Bullshit. The official name is not Chinese Virus. Just like H1N1 is not the Mexican flu.



I was just about to say the same.

While lots of diseases have names that are regionally named "Spanish flu, Russian Flu, etc, this one is NOT named Chinese Flu. It's named Covid-19 or Sars-2

Choosing to name it a particular race disease on your own (and I am certain Keyser is not an official disease nomenclature designator) is just racist.



The spanish flu didnt originate from spain.

Yet Spain is not whining about the name.



I went into advanced auto today. The cashier joked to the asian “your kind is not welcome here”. My employees are using the virus to insult asians. How can you assume that the spanish were not victimized by this naming. The naming was not well thought out. Racism was more acceptable back then. Would you mind if we call this the USA virus

I'll just refer to it as The Chinese (Keyser) Virus when responding to him. Or anyone else who likes to use the term.

Otherwise, I'll use a more appropriate name.

I call BS. More fake twitter propaganda. Did Kim or Madonna tell you that? If only we were as cool as they are.

The US has plenty of named viruses like Lyme (Lyme Conn.) and Norovirus (Norwalk Ohio). The location of a virus doesn't make it racist. Ignore social media. There's currently another virus circulating on social media. It's called stupidity.

Now, how about those new virus numbers?

Yesterday the US had 14,000 dead

Today it's 16,200. Day not over yet.

So more than 2,000 dead today alone
