    So the corona virus is like communism spraying out of people's asses killing people?

    Sounds about right.

    The Chinese doctor who was one of the early coronavirus whistleblowers has died
    This poor guy raised alarm about this virus Dec 30
    He was immediately accused of rumor-mongering by the police
    He was then forced to sign statement acknowledging his "misdemeanor"
    Then he contracted virus while treating patients

    Probably a typical wide body Boeing with a different seat arrangement and no overhead bins. Or a military cargo plane

    I have seen reports that the Chinese are welding the doors of apt bldgs shut if they know someone infected is inside. Cant verify but there are some pretty disturbing videos of people wailing out their windows

    Hyundai plant suspends

    "SEOUL: The most productive car factory in the world fell quiet on Friday as South Korea's Hyundai suspended operations at its giant Ulsan complex, hamstrung by a lack of parts with the coronavirus outbreak crippling China's industrial output.

    The five-plant network can make 1.4 million vehicles annually, in a coastal location facilitating importing components and exporting cars globally.

    But supply lines are crucial in an ever more interconnected worldwide economy and the coronavirus outbreak in China has seen Beijing order factories closed in several areas as it seeks to contain the epidemic.

    As a result, Hyundai -- which with its affiliate Kia ranks as the world's fifth-largest auto manufacturer -- has run out of the wiring harnesses that connect vehicles' complex electronics...."

    It could be a military flight, but it doesn't look like a military cargo plane like a C-5, C-17, or C-130. It also looks like it has a second deck. There's a ladder to something. My guess is that it is a Boeing 747 freighter that has been configured to temporarily carry passengers.

    First case in San Diego County was confirmed. The patient was among the Americans evacuated from Wuhan last week (see above) and spent 14-days in federal quarantine. First Coronavirus Case Confirmed in San Diego County

    The good news for us here, along with a Wisconsin case, that cruise ship in Japan and the spread in Singapore, is that we now at least have something to study -- the Chinese have been turning down multiple requests by Trump to let the CDC in. They are supposed to have agreed recently to let a WHO team in, but I dont think they've even arrived yet.

    Great Coronavirus can hang in air for hours and those silly paper masks people are wearing are worthless. If air can get in, the virus can get in.
