No, there's no way that would happen.  I think that mostly everyone has too much class to make this part of the political game.{#Eek}

Nicely played.  A global pandemic and you manage to twist it to your crusade against people not like you.

 
Yea wouldn't it be a shame if someone were to use this virus to make political points?{#Arrowd}

China. And that first case is already there (and unlikely to be the only one). Likely from someone who flew to/from or from/to China. As more time passes it could come from anywhere.

Especially good to have if YOU pick up a cough and bring it home.
 

I guess it's too soon to ask you to design a "Free the COVID-19!" shirt

Pence: "I got this. I am rolling out a comprehensive program of thoughts and prayers for everyone as we speak!

I will also be heading a new task force together with the President's spiritual advisors to first determine whether or not this new plague was actually sent by God."

Personally I would go with P100 filter masks but then I use them all the time while doing woodwork and auto wrenching.

The US economy is about to take a hit but overall I reckon the health system should protect Americans.  Some other countries with fewer resources and even stupider politics will not make out as well.

Well...I don't know about you, but I feel a LOT safer after the briefing at the WH.  

Even when addressing public health all of the minions feel an obligation to blow smoke up the POTASS non-stop.  Thank you for your leadership...

in the us the flu takes out a lot of folks 

about twelve thousand a year on average

however in the 2017-2018 season i think it was like sixty thousand (so it varies)

not to panic but i believe we will see it here

realistically, i just don't think there's any way to guard against something like this
