Here is today's report card.

Maybe the Germans have a natural immunity - explaining why America's death rate is so low since we have such a huge population with German ancestry?

Also, maybe Italians are more susceptible to it? Might explain why New York has such a high sick/fatality rate along with Italy?

They decided way back when they were figuring out what name to give this thing that it should not include a location/nation name which hangs around and creates stigma for a long time after the disease is gone.

Imagine a killer diarrhea called the San Diego Squirts.

I think it's more cultural. Italians often live in 3 generation homes, all crammed close together sharing spaghetti and stuff. Plus all the hugging and kissing, etc... Germans are much colder.

So wait...

SARS - Severe acute respiratory syndrome - Started in China
MERS - Middle East Respiratory Syndrome - Started somewhere in the middle east.
Ebola - named after a river
Zika - forest in Uganda
Corona Virus - ....China.


...is that how we name shit based on location? Doesn't seem to be consistent. I mean Wuhan is a place not a race...Why the fuck not call it the Wuhan Flu?


I think they wanted to call it the Wuhan Virus - which would be consistent in how we named these pandemics in the past.

- Guinea Worm - Named by European explorers for the Guinea coast of West Africa in the 1600s.
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever - Named after the mountain range spreading across western North America first recognized first in 1896 in Idaho.
- Lyme Disease - Named after a large outbreak of the disease occurred in Lyme and Old Lyme, Connecticut in the 1970s.
- Ross River Fever - Named after a mosquito found to cause the disease in the Ross River of Queensland, Australia by the 1960s. The first major outbreak occurred in 1928.
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever - Named after its 1940s discovery in Omsk, Russia.
- Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever - Named in 1976 for the Ebola River in Zaire located in central Africa.
- Valley Fever - Valley Fever earned its nickname from a 1930s outbreak San Joaquin Valley of California, though its first case came from Argentina.
- Marburg Virus Disease - Named after Marburg, Germany in 1967.
- Norovirus - Named after Norwalk, Ohio after an outbreak in 1968.
- Zika Fever - First discovered in 1947 and named after the Zika Forest in Uganda.
- Japanese Encephalitis - Named after its first case in Japan in 1871.
- German Measles - Named after the German doctors who first described it in the 18th century. The disease is also sometimes referred to as “Rubella.”

Germans have easier access to a greater number of ventilators than Italians.

Oh, and obviously more than Americans.

Maybe Wuhan needs the stigma to stop them from operating their wet markets and getting thousands of people killed around the globe?

Pathetic.


Yes - it is pathetic that the G7 (along with the WHO) are carrying Communist China's water. People are dying because they don't want to upset the poor darlings.

Won't be long before they are all aping China's propaganda that the Wuhan Virus was created by America (and the jooos?) and purposefully spread in China.


This thing is already causing racial tension against Chinese looking people. Calling it Wuhan or Chinese Flu is the opposite of helpful.

They've already moved on that... pretty sure they don't want this happening again either.

OK - then why is the US beating the rest of Western Europe?

I was led to believe that Western Europe has the most advanced, efficient and generous healthcare systems in the world with their nationalized systems?

Sorry - the Wuhan Virus is not selling me on the efficacy of Medicare for All or Single Payer based on the shit-show in Europe right now.

Nice that you're so concerned about what to call COVID-19 Foota. Though TBH, I think "coronavirus" is going to be a difficult placeholder to shift in most peoples' lexicon.

But whilst you're debating (with no-one) what to call it, don't you think you might spare some "Thoughts & Prayers" for those fellow Americans who are now going to die because of the U.S.'s approach to Healthcare?

Do you think the last thought on your fellow Americans minds, as they shuffle off this mortal coil, is going to be, "What are they calling the thing that just killed me?"?

I think one day soon, you'll look back and smile at the moment you were just worrying about what to call this thing.

;)

I think you need to forget about Yirrup and just wait and see how the U.S. fares compared to Canada after this is all over. Deds per capita. Not saying we are going to do great either, but that makes more sense as a comparison.

I think it's more about capacity and access.

Or lack thereof.

Where are they facing tension? I know the American press has been bending over backwards looking for cases of Trump's rhetoric hurting people with Chinese ancestry, but can't find anything to report.

Most people can discern between the average Chinese person living abroad and the criminal Communist Government running China who unleashed the plague on the world.

You know who is facing tension right now - billions of people locked in their fucking homes watching our economy crater because China fucked this all up and pressured the WHO to cover it up for weeks.

We don't need Western SJW's carrying China's water. They have alot to account for when this thing is over.

:-?

Yet if this had come out of the US, you would all be calling it the Trump flu.

There is real reason to believe that the WHO, under some type of Chinese pressure, Bent over backwards to try to rebrand this as COVID-19.

Prior to that term coming out the mainstream media was routinely calling it either the Chinese Corona virus or the Wuhan flu. There's montages of all the people who now calling this racist uttering that phase on their news programs.

China's laughing their asses off as people like HM.

Based on previous viral outbreaks Wuhan flu would probably be the correct naming convention.

We have far less people dying of Coronavirus per capita despite a huge number of infections. America has more fat and unhealthy people then Western Europe, but our healthcare system is managing better at keeping people alive.

Yep. Not a great look for nationalized healthcare.

Yeah yeah yeah. Nobody thinks naming it Wuhan/Chinese Flu is a good idea, but because Murrica wants it named so it must be. USA! USA! USA!

See the video above.

Everyone was calling it the Wuhan Virus a few weeks ago - until they got their marching orders from China.

How about if the rest of the world decides to call the U.S. "Assholia" from now on?

We don't take our marching orders from them.

Don't you do that already?

We can call the "Rest of the World" China's knob-polisher.

Sadly unsurprising OPrs are more upset at Orange Man Bad calling it the Chinese Wuhan Virus than the ACTIONS of the Communist Chinese unleashing the plague with their incompetence and criminal cover up.

Not even just per capita. The raw numbers and mortality rate as percentage of all infections is better.

Presently the US has had 1046 deaths. Italy has had 8215, Spain has had 4145, France has had 1331.
