Infection fears from investors shaved 5.4 per cent off the Milan stock exchange

Financial and industrial heartlands of Lombardy and Veneto are worst-affected

More than $1 trillion was wiped off the value of world's stock markets over fears

...

Italy's coronavirus epidemic has pounded the country's economy, which slumped after seven people died and 229 fell ill.

It came as more than a $1 trillion was wiped off the value of the world's stock markets over fears about the virus outbreak.

Infection fears from investors shaved 5.4 per cent off the Milan stock exchange after the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto - the industrial and financial heartlands - went into lockdown.

The flu kills around 0.1%. This is 20x more deadly than the flu if it's 2%.

The flu kills around 500k per year worldwide. This virus may be more contagious than the flu so if it's not taken seriously it could kill 10+ million quite easily.

You are repeating objectively and dangerously false information.

According to the CDC, the normal flu has mortality rate of about 0.05%. That's two orders of magnitude lower than COVID-19 which has a mortality rate of about 2%.

Saying they are equal is a straight fabrication.

The Spanish Flu of 1918 which killed more people than WWI had mortality rate of about 2-3%. So, about the same as COVID-19.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu

Comparing it to the common cold is farcical.

Next, regular flu has an available vaccine, which varies in effectiveness from year to year, but there is a vaccine available. COVID-19 has no vaccine, a possible vaccine is at least a year out, and there is a good possibility there will never be a vaccine.

Comparing it to the common cold is farcical.

Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, is completely locked down in attempt to control the spread. People can't leave even their homes even in order to buy groceries. Northern Italy has ten cities locked down.

Yet, according to Rush it is all a conspiracy to get Trump. Really? The Chinese and Italians are both in a conspiracy to create a fake epidemic in order to get Trump. Do you think no one in China or Italy is smart enough to see through the conspiracy theory.

Oh, and the market is still up for the month.

Do you even believe the stuff you post?

I'm constantly surprised by the way the market has stayed up given the pre-coronavirus situation with the economy. I almost suspect some invisible hand behind it:

It’s as if it had suddenly dawned on the hyper-inflated stock market that it is in fact hyper-inflated, and that there are in fact big issues out there that had been known about for many weeks, and some of them for months or even years, but that had been successfully brushed off as irrelevant and had been successfully banished as nonexistent.

I can't recommend your post enough. This is a novel virus. It is much more deadly than seasonal flu. It is not contained.

Oh, and the market is still up for the month.

The S&P 500 index, which had reached a record high as recently as Wednesday, fell 3.4 percent, its worst single-day performance since February 2018. As analysts issued new warnings that the outbreak could drag down economies around the globe, stocks fell enough to wipe out all of the index's gains for 2020.

X Post from Team Secular board: Yesterday, I posted a link to a short interview of Dr. Anthony Faucci from the CDC. When he was asked at the end of his short interview about Limabaugh's idiotic comment about Coronavirus, I busted out laughing:

OMG, let’s sell everything and hide in our bunkers, the world is coming to an end.

It never ends well when one reacts to the next “crisis” in regards to their money. As far as traveling goes, no I’m not doing it nor am I one that does it regularly....but those who do should strongly consider canceling their worldly travels.

Pray for those affected but don’t bug out over this.
