God, MSM sucks. All I saw briefly was, some secret Korean cult. Moonies aren't an F'n secret. They own the Washington Times rag.

Damn, if gold had only dropped to below a grand an ounce a couple years ago. I would have bought in.

The other alarming news was the big spread into Italy, iow it's in Europe, and it's in the hands of the Italians.

We're about to lose containment on a virus that has perhaps a 2% morality rate.

The hope was to limit the spread within China's borders. Once it breaks out, who knows how we can stop it.

2% doesn't sound like a lot, but Flu is 0.1%, yet 18,000 Americans die every year to flu.

2% of even 1 billion is 20 million people.

This.
One thing perhaps the Chinese authoritarian surveillance state is good for ... cracking down on this sort of thing.
Western democracies a bit more lax, personal freedoms and all.
Africa is fucked when that shit hits there.

Yes. People of great sympathy and action must SUFFER the consequences.

Meh, for now it's statistical noise, we've had worse in early 2019. It still remains to be seen how much of a threat coronavirus is to the world economy. If serious it can easily send us into correction, or the markets could rebound next day.
