In China, there is a rightful panic. The latest strain of Coronavirus to jump from the animal kingdom to the human population has turned deadly, and quickly.

This was also a feature of the Chernobyl disaster, wherein a coverup seemed to be modus operandi from day one. Maybe it’s a hidden feature of communism that you only unlock after starving so many people?

The State Department said Americans should reconsider any plans to travel to China during the outbreak.
