Nah. This is not a rolling lol. More like a serial infrequent recurring lol. You can't have a rolling lol if it takes more than an hour for the next lol. Perhaps in a care unit for demented grandpas it would.

there's been an increase in "oi nah fully close our borders can't risk this coronah virus thing" sentiment among racists and bogans here who seem to know very little about the virus and refer to all chinese as "asians". for example facebook pages like "protest to close our borders to stop coronavirus from reaching australia" where the profile pic is an aussie flag. obviously i understand being concerned about stopping the spread of the virus, but it's very telling that these are the same people who harp on about muslim immigration  tearing apart the fabric of society etc. very obviously just using it to push their own agenda. i can imagine this is happening everywhere but the uniquely australian flavour is just....mwoah!! :cisfor:

Well they already want closed borders, so this is just an excuse to continue converting oxygen into CO2 while pretending to say something different.

Racism as a topic has become so boring. But cremation? That’s the shit right there.

At critical turning points, Chinese authorities put secrecy and order ahead of openly confronting the growing crisis and risking public alarm or political embarrassment.

 

Quote

The government’s initial handling of the epidemic allowed the virus to gain a tenacious hold. At critical moments, officials chose to put secrecy and order ahead of openly confronting the growing crisis to avoid public alarm and political embarrassment.

A reconstruction of the crucial seven weeks between the appearance of the first symptoms in early December and the government’s decision to lock down the city, based on two dozen interviews with Wuhan residents, doctors and officials, on government statements and on Chinese media reports, points to decisions that delayed a concerted public health offensive.

In those weeks, the authorities silenced doctors and others for raising red flags. They played down the dangers to the public, leaving the city’s 11 million residents unaware they should protect themselves. They closed a food market where the virus was believed to have started, but didn’t broadly curb the wildlife trade.

Their reluctance to go public, in part, played to political motivations as local officials prepared for their annual congresses in January. Even as cases climbed, officials declared repeatedly that there had likely been no more infections.

By not moving aggressively to warn the public and medical professionals, public health experts say, the Chinese government lost one of its best chances to keep the disease from becoming an epidemic.

Personally, I think it would be far worse to refer to all Asians as "Chinese".

Also, it might be wise to leave Bogan Raceynski out of this. Don't mess with the Polish!

They're all Europeans!

I can’t tell what country an Asian person is from, usually. I was flattered when I was in Europe and people started speaking to me in Dutch, Danish, German, etc because it means they think I’m Mexican. Culture. Try it on.

i mean yeah they're both bad

 

re: candiru - that's basically the point, you don't know where someone is from so don't just assume they're from wuhan and are infected. i'm not saying this is what you're doing, but this is what the racists i'm describing are doing. they live in areas with zero multiculturalism, so if they see someone of asian appearance, they jump straight to "must have the virus ay". i've seen this attitude repeated multiple times on the nets.

Logistical and technical analysis of the origins of the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

https://harvardtothebighouse.com/2020/01/31/logistical-and-technical-analysis-of-the-origins-of-the-wuhan-coronavirus-2019-ncov/?fbclid=IwAR2exGv60lBq2ZvQWzFr_pU9foPV5NMrQFybaC8RluoxsdBtkcfSONYf1wk

Given the above facts, either:

– A coronavirus spontaneously mutated and jumped to humans at a wet market or deep in some random bat cave which just so happened to be 20 miles from China’s only BSL-4 virology lab, a virus with an unusually slippery never-before-seen genome that’s evading zoological classification, and whose spike-protein region which allows it to enter host cells appears most like a bio-engineered commercial product, that somehow managed to infect its first three and roughly one-third of its initial victims despite them not being connected to this market, and then be so fined-tuned to humans that it’s gone on to create the single greatest public health crisis in Chinese history with approaching 100 million citizens locked-down or quarantined – also causing Mongolia to close its border with its largest trading partner for the first time in modern history.

– Or, Chinese scientists failed to follow correct sanitation protocols possibly while in a rush during their boisterous holiday season, something that had been anticipated since the opening of the BSL-4 lab and has happened at least four times previously, and accidentally released this bio-engineered Wuhan Strain – likely created by scientists researching immunotherapy regimes against bat coronaviruses, who’ve already demonstrated the ability to perform every step necessary to bio-engineer 2019-nCov – into their population, and now the world. As would be expected, this virus appears to have been bio-engineered at the spike-protein genes which was already done at UNC to make an extraordinarily virulent coronavirus. Chinese hesitancy to disclose the full story about what’s going on are because they want the scales to be even since they’re now facing a severe pandemic. No facts point against this conclusion.

Sure, unless everyone working on it in the lab is ill and cannot work.

more sad news about the coronavirus:

Quote

Disney expects the coronavirus outbreak to force it to shut its popular theme parks in China for two months, shaving $175m from operating income in the current quarter.

Nike has warned it expects to sustain a meaningful blow from the coronavirus outbreak as the sportswear maker announced plans to close half its stores in China.
