    I was watching one of the news programs on Euro channel this morning...It was a Q & A about CV 19
    All was going well ( various innocuous questions as usual ) then a woman came on and asked
    'When are we going to get the truth about what is really going on?'
    uys face completely changed.. he blustered a bit and I expected him to ask the woman what she could possibly mean..
    Instead they simply cut him and the caller off and went to the next thing in the program

    Makes you think

    Makes me think that it was a stupid question to ask.

    Unhelpful.

    Matter of opinion..
    The more I see and read the more I wonder
    Yes, I know, that is merely my opinion

    The problem with any sort of chemical or biological agent is that they're almost impossible to control, especially if you're going to deploy it regionally or even globally...so I don't suspect that if it is manmade then it has been deliberately deployed.
    But it's quite conceivable that it's an engineered biological agent that "escaped" containment due to negligence or an accident of some sort.

    Conspiracy theory? Was SARS man made.? Is CV man-made? Both from China like the voice of reason, his Trumpness, has said ;)

    I see China has banned eating anything and everything that we in the Western world consider cruel, unusual or just plain weird, that crawls, flies, swims etc - was it from eating bats?

    Will this help to save the endangered species around the globe? Tigers, bears, rhinos etc.etc.?

    is it safe for me to get a takeaway from Wun Hung Low at the to- of the road? :)

    I know I live in a more remote area than any big city where things are supposed to be worst.

    But, to me, the numbers don't stack up!
    The reaction of all the countries has staggered me!

    China is supposed to have had the virus running rife for seven weeks before they tried to contain it
    and yet their figures, <3000 deaths with their 1.5 Billion population size!
    It doesn't add up to the reaction we've seen!

    I believe there is something else, but we'll never be told!

    More than just an "interesting" reaction, John, if your interpretation of the event is correct.

    It's tempting to speculate that the question was posed by someone who already knew the answer, and that the reaction to the question was pre-meditated and pre-sanctioned. If so, then the question was anticipated as a potential at best - expected at worst.

    I must admit to smiling a bit as I write this, but....

    I don't believe anything that the Chinese say. The truth doesn't suit them and even if this is an accidental event it still plays nicely into their long term ambitions.

    You may Be right but it is still a dumb question to ask - if the questioner knew something they should ask an appropriate question rather than going on a fishing trip. They might have been given an answer rather than being closed down

    Stuff like this is just plain unhelpful at the moment.

    The answer to pretty much every question asked at the moment can be answered by one of the following;

    A) keep two meters apart (answers 95% of questions asked by the media)
    B) there is plenty food and other supplies to meet daily needs if people stop panic buying
    C) we will have to look at enforcing behaviours if everyone can't do the simplest of things that we are asking them to do
    D) 42

    In my opinion.

    Could this be a western derived virus released in the east to quash a growing power, that didn't, probably because of globalisation, have the desired affect and has backfired
    giving the resultant reaction as the governments that released it don't want the blame for killing off their own populations?

    Now that's what I call a conspiracy theory. (y)

    Personally I think this is the first proven case of a digital virus taking real world form.

    I'm now waiting confidently for Norton, Kaspersky, Bitdefender and the rest to issue an update to sort it.

    P.S. If you're one of those unfortunates who has McAfee then you're basically fecked. :D

    Interesting conspiracy theory.
    Follow the money, apparently with the markets crashing China is buying as many assets as it can.
    Would certainly suit their long term ambitions.

    H5N1 was from China as well. Three in the last 15 or so years, all from China. None of this is coincidence.

    What is the point of keeping two metres apart when a sneeze or cough carries at least ten foot?
