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

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.

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.
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.

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."

No sir. Trump is repeating what scientists are saying. The virus will return next winter. Just like the flu.

Nice to be certain about a virus we know next to nothing about yet.

We used to think you couldn't transmit it person to person.

Then we thought even if you could, it wouldn't happen easily.

Then we thought that it had next to no incubation period before you had symptoms, and you couldn't transmit it 'til then.

Imagine what we might know tomorrow, or next year?

Unwise to spout stuff with certainty until we get more information.

P.S. But science and evaluation of same never seemed a strength of his.

You really should read what you post
Meanwhile, Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease and Policy at the University of Minnesota, says it's premature to count on warmer weather impacting this coronavirus' trajectory.

"A lot of people assume that because the SARS epidemic ended in the summer," he says. "We have no idea if that was a coincidence of not. That just may have happened to be the time we controlled it."
So there's lots of doubt, even among experts. So gubmit folks shouldn't issue proclamations.

But folks will hear what they want to hear.

P.S. I hope they're right, maybe it'll give time to create a vaccine?

maybe im a bit of a conspiracy theorist who just has a healthy sense of disbelief when it comes to governments, but does anyone wonder if the coronavirus has anything to do with the HIV resistant CRISPR babies made in China from 2018 that everyone has forgotten about. China is trying to use gene introduction technonolgy to make super humans, regardless of what they are telling the world. editing the genes of babies so they are born smarter, with better immune systems, less allergies etc. Pretty sure I saw this episode on Star Trek TNG, and the immune systems of the genetically altered babies responded to a normal virus, mutating it and making it deathly lethal for the un-augmented humans.

I heard reports that China was vaccinating millions of people in early December with an vaccine of unknown purpose, and then The Kung Flu suddenly appeared.

Yes, it sounds crazy, but its also exactly what people feared would happen when you start tinkering with the human immune system. Viruses are different than other organisms, they break themselves down and rebuild themselves based on your body's reaction to the virus, its what a Retro Virus is. And its only a matter of time before a virus meets with the right person to then create a mutated version of itself that NOBODY has a defense against.
