Brad Pitt just signed on to make the movie. Rumor has it Dustin Hoffman will co-star.

Yes. They ruined it with the mini-series but the book is worth it.
I used to have a huge crush on Laura San Giacomo, who was in it.

Despite zero confirmed coronavirus cases in New York, restaurants in Chinatown have reported a 70% drop in business over a 10 day period.

Been a loooong time since I read The Stand.
I remember thinking the book overall was amazing but I think I was a bit disappointed at the ending. I want to say I remember thinking "This cant be the fucking end?" Even if that is the case I'd still recommend it as the journey to that point was top notch.

Isn’t that the gripe with most of his books, though? Books are great but endings usually fall flat. Read The Outsider recently. Absolutely hated the ending.

oops. who would have thought that a 3rd world country would have difficulty reporting diseases caused by their people eating rats. 15,000 new cases reported because their testing methods weren't up to par.

Well, the good news is that they are "saying" that it isn't transferred by breathing (masks are not required). So, it takes personal contact. Cross touching. And, this person in San Antonio came from china where everyone has it.

They are also saying that once winter ends, it will die off on its own.

China has reported a massive increase in the number of its citizens infected by the new coronavirus, after officials there changed how cases were defined. The numbers now include people who are less seriously ill.
So it's more a matter of reporting milder cases. WHO asked them to include milder cases, because without that they can't accurately determine real fatality rates. The way they were doing it exaggerated the fatality rate.

I heard that as well, warm weather seems to kill off the virus.

Thankfully the patient is under quarantine at Lackland AFB.

At danger of making this political, I think that "fact" came from Trump.

Actually, they're now in quarantine in a local San Antonio hospital.
"All people who lived or traveled in Hubei Province, China, are considered at high risk of having been exposed to this virus and are subject to a temporary 14-day quarantine upon entry into the United States," the CDC said in a statement. "This is the first person under quarantine at JBSA-Lackland who had symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is currently isolated and receiving medical care at a designated hospital nearby."
