    Default Wuhan Flu?

    Would the powers that be have responded differently to this latest epidemic if it had a more appropriate name?

    Interesting

    On an another note, the reason Italy & Iran rank 1 & 3 in deaths from this Wuhan flu is their embrace of "Belt & Road"
    which comes with all things Chinese including Chinese people to run the show.

    Call the virus what you like, history will judge the response, the statistics and strength of recovery or withering. Panic or prescience, we’ll know soon which side got it right.

    If ANYONE, be it an employee, employer, retired, military of government bureaucrat witnesses what they believe to be a crime, they have a responsibility to report it.

    Hello, my name is Blind Ambition and for the benefit of those in doubt, I agree with the above statement in its entirety.

    It will be manipulated and used to gain power. The left will use this to push federal authority and control of many industries, starting with healthcare.

    I think we should change the name to appease the "Woke" amongst us.

    It's interesting that as we are fighting this virus from China, spreading at an alarming rate because China lied and covered up info, some are more concerned about what we call it than solving the problem, that started in China.
