I wonder who were the 2 Eyeranians who died... and where did they catch it. Answers may or may not be eye-openers. IOW, if u hear a rumor that there were 1 or 2 deaths in NoKo...

Now we heard this story at a place that cannot be cited... like Soorajji's posts above...
u run a bijnej. You have invented many ways of making huge money and scamming ppl. But your evil 6th coujin E6C keeps bribing ur employees to steal ur "Crown Jewels" ... and make even more money with copies of ur stuff. U know it, E6C knows that u know it, but also that u can't do diddly about it because Big Uncle will not let you kick E6C on the musharraf or deliver a punch to the nose. Also, it so happens that E6C has many goons at her command.

So u put some viper venom, packed nicely in a lota, and put a label: DO NOT TOUCH! on it and lock it away in a safe. In your buddy Abdul's shop where u just happen to know, E6C has also bribed a chamcha. Then u get Abdul to get drunk one day at the neighborhood Khan's ZamZam Cola Military Cafe, and let drop the idea that he is very happy because his staff have invented this super poison, and he can now use that to take down his enemy Hafeez who stole his goats last year.

But it so happens that the lota in which you put the poison, has a very special bottom: it has a hole, sealed only with chewing gum. Will deteriotate in 2 months or so.....


Let me pooch u: is E6C going to display the lota and :(( that it had a chewing-gum sealed hole in the bottom?

But as Agint 007 told the Bibi in (never mind):
Old Chinese proverb: b4 setting out fol levenge, dig TWO glaves.

Digressing a bit,
But UBji's 'film script' is better than Salim-Javed or this latest James B writer :https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiB1a_Pn-DnAhXhURUIHY5sBSQQFjAAegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theguardian.com%2Ftv-and-radio%2F2019%2Fapr%2F14%2Fjames-bond-script-phoebe-waller-bridge-fleabag-daniel-craig&usg=AOvVaw0F0ZK3eEzof9qEoiKHCU7Z :lol: :lol:

So the 2 BLR folks tested positive for Swine Flu & not Coronavirus right? Cause, they seem to be some rumors about them testing positive for Coronavirus. This is regular Flu season as well...changing weather in BLR affects a lot of people with common Flu & with Coronavirus scare, it is putting some people on edge. Freak...

So dear BRFites, why does Pakistan hesitate so much to pull its students/people out of Wuhan?

I don't really understand. Will China get offended? I doubt it, and I doubt they care at this stage. In fact they may be relieved to have fewer people to care for. Just about every country has pulled their citizens from Wuhan and this kind of "display of solidarity" makes no sense to me.

Regarding Paki medical facilities - they really don't need much. One semi secure facility like a military barrack with sufficient beds, and a small medical team to enforce the quarantine. Pakis who could be victims of coronavirus can be held back in Wuhan.

Any theories why Pakis are actively sabotaging their own people?

No matter what, I am impressed by actions taken by Chinese Govt. Can you imagine such virus outbreak in India? Civil authorities will be running like head-less chikens blaming each other. I wish Govt does some mock exercises .

Two dead mean around 100 - 200 infections at least, given the fatality rate of 1 - 2%, higher in later stages of epidemic when medical facilities are overloaded.

I think, its beyond the ability of Iran to control this virus now.

India needs to act now to get things in order. Heroic rescues of Indians out of wuhan are all good, but if this thing 'catches' in India, we will have a hard time indeed.

If there is nothing-2-do, prepare adequate cremation facilities.

Even now, a publicity campaign to get people to wash their hands, practice good sneeze/cough hygiene, get adequate sunlight/vitamin D, rest.. can do some good.

We may need school vacations/office shutdowns.

What happens when your health care providers start falling sick? Do we have enough masks, isolation wards, safety googles, gowns, incinerators for medical waste ... for the doctors and nurses to be safe?

Iran still shows infected number as 5. Now there are reportedly nine deaths. Is everyone hiding the data?

Pakistan refused to accept dead bodies from Kargil conflict. But then they accepted some bodies. The whole world knew the intruders were regular pak army, there was no hiding the fact. Pakis do not give importance to such logic. That is a dhimmi forte.

From Livemint.com:

The Diamond Princess cruise ship arrived in Yokohama, near Tokyo, on February 3 with 3,711 passengers and crew on board, 621 people were found to be infected with the deadly coronavirus after it was diagnosed in a man who disembarked last month in Hong Kong.
A total of 138 Indians, including 132 crew and 6 passengers, were among the 3,711 people on board the ship.
"1 Indian crew who tested positive for #COVID19 among 79 new cases on #DiamondPrincess yesterday too has been shifted to hospital for treatment. All 8 Indians receiving treatment are responding well. Rest all Indians on-board are braving out the trying circumstances. @MEAIndia
— India in Japanインド大使館 (@IndianEmbTokyo) February 20, 2020"

Now.. validating UBCN e-Khano-comics: stocks of Indian TV set producers to go up.
India may see 10% rise in TV prices as outbreak disrupts China supply

TV prices are likely to go up by as much as 10% from next month as disrupted supply of open cell television panels - mostly imported from China - has resulted in a shortage of the key television component.
TV panels, which account for nearly 60% of the price of a TV unit, are mostly imported from China. While companies had stocked in advance for Chinese New Year break but Coronavirus outbreak has caused disruption in production and supply of many key components. Though some factories have re-opened but they are working with minimal staff...This, according to industry executives, has pushed prices of panels by almost 20 per cent. One of the executives said it would take at least one quarter for supply and production to return to normalcy, and so prices would also see an impact.

This is a Summer Olympics year. Are pp going to be w/o TV to watch Sync. swimming, hain?

China is fighting the virus! Give $$$ to WHO so we can watch!! First-class air tickets are not cheap!
WHO seeks more fund to fight virus
The head of the World Health Organization urged countries to boost funding to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus, saying that the response to its call for $675 million has been limited.
“This is the time to attack the virus while it is manageable," Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing in Geneva Thursday.
Tedros said he’s surprised donations have been low and that countries aren’t treating the outbreak seriously enough. If the response isn’t strong now, the spread outside of China, which so far has been manageable, may become a wider threat, he said. “The virus is very dangerous, and it’s public enemy No. 1."


and the best news of all:
India to evacuate its 100 nationals from Wuhan by military aircraft
The aircraft India is sending to Wuhan with medical supplies will evacuate about 100 Indians from the coronavirus-hit Chinese city, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday.
MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the advisories regarding travel to and from China remain in place, but there was no ban on travel.
India is set to send a C-17 military transport aircraft to Wuhan to evacuate more Indians and deliver a consignment of medical supplies. India is awaiting clearance from the Chinese side."


A C-17 will carry a HUGE payload of supplies!

Meanwhile hundreds in the Bay Area are quietly ‘self-isolating’ themselves in homes. According to Public Health officials the number in California is around 7000 who have travelled to China recently and are "self isolating.

Are we sitting idle & smug? Can nCV catch up with India?

Will warm weather or use of spices in food protect us?
