See there's this new fangled invention called the airplane. Some Ruskies that were in China flew back home and a few of them were infected. And you can probably figure out the rest of the story.

There was a report of an infected case breaking quarantine, but she claimed that she had been cleared by doctors.

Im saying Russia is definetely giving false data. 114 is very low given the population density of Russia. Im not gonna claim to be stunned. This is a country still claiming 24 ppl died from Chernobyl. Uh huh

Russia was one of the first nations to take action when virus was discovered in China unlike some nation whose president made fun of the virus and the Chinese reaction to it. So there is that.

You can never trust anything coming out of a dictatorship. Only the things helping the dictator to remain in power will ever be seen.

You mean a country where senators sold stocks after getting a briefing on the situation, while reassuring people everything was fine? (apparently illegal under insider trading rules).

No. I was talking about the situation when European/USA leadership was quick to criticize China for slow and inefficient way to handle the crisis while doing little or nothing to prepare ourselves for it. Now that crissis came to us it shows that we are less efficient and capable to make proper action than China was. Instead of pointing a finger to others we should do some real work for a change.

a dictatorship can stop an outbreak easier by executing people, stripping rights ect.

freedom is liability in an outbreak

given the surge in Gun sales this past week I think a showdown is looming between martial law, and freedom lovers. Which implies to me that people are prepared to just do whatever they think is right.
In china the people didnt have a choice.

Executing people is a terrible strategy, then you get ppl hiding it rather than coming forward, and it becomes essentially impossible to find it.

Ordering them to stay home is much safer, and the 'freedom' to knowingly spread a disease is not protected in any country.

As for gun sales, it is an indication that people are worried and trying to find something to do which will make themselves feel better.

Others are panic buying and stocking up on food/toilet paper, even when neither the experience of China nor Italy has indicated that this kind of stockpiling will be helpful.

I don't think they're planning to use their weapons to start a mad max like scenario, they are just preparing in case it happens despite the govt's best efforts.

While people in the US claimed they were buying guns and ammo to protect themselves from looting, I expect plenty to be used by looters out to get suspected hoards. Most will be disappointed but keep looting.

It is indeed possible, in much the same way as it is possible that the entire coronavirus outbreak is a cover story to account for all the deaths of muggles in the latest wizarding wars

More likely it is an alien invasion they are covering up, the question is, why target China and Italy first?

China says that Covid-19 was brought to wuhan by US soldiers who became mysteriously ill while visiting.

Trump says its a China virus.

Russia gains a lot seeing china and US struggle and blame one another.


You mentioned Italy but, Iran is very high in infected also.

China's obvious enough. It looks advanced and has the largest population. To an alien observer it may well appear to be the chief global power. So you send the virus and tell them to surrender or die. That this is merely a taste of the things to come, and that they have plenty of faster spreading and more lethal plagues in their arsenal if we fight back. The Chinese do fight for a while and are quickly overwhelmed, before utterly surrendering in exchange for the cure.

The rest are just natural spread of the virus. Nations that follow China's example and surrender will be spared. Nations that resist will be wiped from the map. In a couple of years the entire world will be another compliant member of the galactic empire.

The aliens came for the food and left the virus?

Were they eating the Chinese, or did they just hear about this awesome bat market in Wuhan?
