Few incidents have been seen in Iran, Egypt...these are the places to be afraid of as they might not be able to contain the virus. Russia will shut boarders to China soon completely.

As for conspiracy theory, my thought is USA did it. Been years since its known China will surpass US economy in the not so distant future, Trump did all he could with the tariffs and calling US based brands back to USA. Human life is most important, but the real damage Corona did was to Chinese economy. Their stock market closed for 2 weeks and they pumped 150billon just so it wouldn't crash the day it opened, now they're merging small airplane businesses with bigger ones so they won't face bankruptcy. Also huge internal credits are being arranged so common people who cannot work right now (like a drugstore owner etc.) so mass unemployment won't happen...

An equally unlikely theory going around is that the Chinese government unleashed this virus on their own people as a means of population control .
I don't buy either one of those theories.

Me either.
The most likely scenario is that it was just another animal borne, flu like disease that they figured would be easily curable and/or burn itself out - as most of these do and that most of us never even hear about. Every once in a while we get one that is a little deadly and not so containable.
Personally, I would stay away from youtube vids, blogs and talk radio shows about the Corona virus.

According to this article that I read last week, there may already be a cure. A lab in California claimed to come up with a vaccine within hours of receiving the genetic sequence. All that's needed is for testing to begin and hopefully be successful.

The rate of spread for this has been pretty scary indeed. I've run across the theory you are talking about. The idea that the U.S. Did it, but there is precious little evidence it seems. Also keep seeing vids talking about it coming out of a research lab in China. I suppose we may never really know how it all started.

I'd have to agree smile.gif It seems like it did start in that animal market. Which has since been shut down. Such markets are illegal but have operated for many years. It's possible the Govt will be much more harsh on such markets in the future.

I really hope they get a vaccine by summer. The knock on effects financially may be felt for quite some time. Despite the Chinese govt pumping money in to the system, the market as was mentioned. We are still quite a way from full recovery in terms of financial results.

Here is an interesting article that I ran across today concerning the lab in Wuhan.

Sure, maybe - ?
The New York Post is about one notch above the National Inquirer in terms of reliability. It's a tabloid.

So are most others news organizations these days. biggrin.gif Who knows?
But yeah, it would be nice if they would cite some sources to those claims. Without that, might as well label it an op-ed.

That's the trouble with so much News these days. It's all click bait just to survive as a publication. Even respectable rags like the New York Times have been guilty of putting up stories quickly instead of sourcing everything as would have been done in the "old days".

One thing that saddens me is I keep seeing stories about how this virus is creating hatred and racism for anyone that looks Asian. Folks in the states, born here, raised here, never been to china, being taunted on the subway just for looking asian. It's similar to what anyone looking Arab went through after 911. The sooner they can get a vaccine for this, the better.

For perspective, Spanish Flu infected almost a third of planet earth and killed about 500 million people.
