here's a glimpse of how insane public paranoia is getting. and how stupid people have a stranglehold on truth.

there is a young (early 20s) asian guy who works at the same company that my wife does. he lives with a few members of his extended family. he mentioned in conversation that his uncle just got back from vietnam. a coworker overheard and immediately ran to HR. now that poor kid (who's a bit of a trainee. and needs more or less constant supervision) has to "work from home" for two weeks.

vietnam is over 2000 miles from china, and has no current recorded cases of coronavirus.

There are actually 30 confirmed cases in Vietnam -- as you can see on the left hand side. This is reliable data monitored by John Hopkins and constantly updated:  https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6      

 

Stay safe, everyone!

I've never been good with miles and those measurements, and English isn't my native language, so if 2000 miles from China means the same as sharing a 1281 km border, then okay. If not, you're wrong.

Moreover, it's under 1000 miles from Wuhan (the centre of the epidemic) to Hanoi.

Funny coincidence, Canada is also exactly 2,000 miles from the US.

The first case in my isolated Canadian town. The patient went to a mining conference attended by 25,000 people from all over the world. This is a mining town so you know he wasn't the only one. Our university has moved to online classes.

 

Be safe out there!

It's now officially been declared a pandemic.

So far the Thai authorities are refusing to ban Songkran celebrations, which are due to begin in around 4 weeks. For those that don't know, Songkran is the Thai new year and is celebrated by everybody getting drunk, becoming an idiot, and joining in with an enormous water fight up that takes place throughout the country. 

What could possibly go wrong? You'd think it would be called off, but T.I.T. (This is Thailand).
