Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

I'm not so sure about the effectiveness of BCG vaccine. I know of people who have had taken the vaccines when they were a child and now in serious condition. May be, it gives some protection, but your guess is good as mine. Until a proper scientific study comes out, there is no way to say for sure. ...

One of the big things happening in Italy is the doctors having to choose who lives and who dies. They are prioritizing the younger vs older.

Now, I wonder, if it gets to that stage, whether doctors will start prioritizing the whites in western world?
