They are now referring to Coronavirus as "Winne the flu" or "Kung flu" because of the suspicion that the virus was developed in a government bio lab and spread intentionally to test its effects.And, indeed, there is a government bio lab in Wuhan.

Makes sense to me.  Those chinese scientists are smart enough to develop a virus and dumb enough to release it in the same city they live in.

i think 3m is behind it.  A major manufacturer of n95 masks.  I still have 10 masks, too soon to start the bidding though.

when I don my tinfoil hat, I have to ask... okie, there are 53 deaths as of what I read today, and still under a 1000 reported infections. Fine, maybe those numbers are a little or even a lot wrong, but... a quarantine on 53 million people? I wonder how many places my fractional number would be in death per thousand? This level of precaution may seem kinda admirable, but it seems fishy too - not to mention, this will send their economy into a major tailspin. Also viewed a video today where they are physically demolishing roadway connections so people can't get out... Toss in the two insta-field hospitals for 2,300 and the response seems nowhere near proportional?

also deadly, I am reading that people can be carrying the infection without showing any symptoms... that won't be great at NAIA.

and the bio labs. 

well, it makes for some great put trades on Macau casinos, Luckin Coffee, and longs on N95 or other US mask manufac.'s. Also shorts on China Air...

If any of you trade much in the market, you might know the legend of .50cent, a buyer of tens of thousands of VIX (volatility) calls... he was in the market a few weeks ago and also appeared this week. He got his name from buying a particular VIX strike when it hit .50. Several years ago he made a substantial fortune. The trades he has made are enormous... and up until a few days ago, they made little sense...

Waiting for Duterte to ban all Chinese from entering the country...

   Kicking it around in my head today I realized that USA imports tons of fresh fish from China. Along with that, there are meat companies here in the states that ship over live animals for China to process and then ship back to the states to distribute among many warehouse companies where grocery chains buy up and distribute all that back to the consumer. 

That means that if there's just one infected worker reporting for work and he handles numerous meat items that day in his job ..what are we looking at when you figure that will all come to your grocery cart soon?

  Worst case scenerio?   Maybe..  have to wait and see i think.

I think it would be very wise to stock up on staples (rice, corn meal, oil, peanut butter, canned meats and canned fish and basically anything that can be stored or frozen) now. If this virus causes an international crisis (or the virus sweeps through the Philippines), it will be too late to buy anything. A minimum of two weeks of food (in addition to what you are normally eating) should probably be considered essential. More would be better. If this thing comes to town, who knows how long it will take to run its course.

Nobody talks about the common flu, no flight cancelled, no panic, no threads, but it infects 40m people every year and kills 60-70k.  Now that I call an epdidemic..There are several virus types and these mutate even faster...hmmm. people just like headlines I guess.

While your point is well taken I think the focus on the Coronavirus and how's it's spreading is alarming because it's new and not very much is known about it.  :hi:

Maybe we'l all settle down some when it wipes out 60K or so people like your given example and we can just take things in stride as usual.  :unsure:

Cross your fingers  :wink:
