30,000 residents of Yumen are not being allowed to leave and 151 people have been placed in quarantine after man's death
Scary. What are the chances of that reaching here in the usa
Very scary, think of all the stuff we all buy that's made in China!!
Ever see the movie Contagion? Yep...Think about how many the Bubonic Plague killed when it first happened and they couldn't even travel with the same speed and ease we do today. Incredibly scary shit right there.
Before people start sealing off their panic rooms from the inside: 1) Bubonic plague has a mere 1-15% mortality rate for people treated with antibiotics (And that's all demographics; imagine what part of those deaths were babies and the elderly). 2) The black death is not the only occurrence of the plague; lots of much smaller outbreaks have happened without wiping out humanity, often staying fairly local. 3) Plague sometimes happens in the western US anyway.
It had a mortaikty rate of approximately a third actually..... on its big outbreak nowadays its muchblower thabks to antibiotics and that thanks to nature because its so deadly untreated its more susceptible to antibiotics. Just how the majoritynof antibiotic immune bacteria require very particular conditions andbin the case of say mrsa its been suggested sunlight can actually causebit to break down axcording to a paper published b ot to long ago new scientist reported on.
So who wants to tell you the bubonic plauge spreads in thebusa and europe already via wildlife? Go google ot there are a few hundered cases a year...
not that scary since it can be treated with anti-biotics
Scary stuff indeed.
You gotta do it like his accent here let me show you what I mean. COOORALLLLLL lol mean funny either way
lol What in the sam hell is that picture. Goddamn freaky that.
There has been some cases in the US before, it isn't really a problem unless there is an antibiotic shortage in the area. I have no idea of the logistics in China but I think this is a bit of an overreaction. This is why you should always goto a doctor if you get sick especially with more severe symptoms.
R.I.P. to the man who died
Think I'll add this here :) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/... See we are reliant on these now days ain't we when we are sick but what if they where useless. That small outbreak there would be a hell off a bigger issue to be thinking about ;).
Words fail me :(
Released by governments for governments...
There is absolutely no way human life can sustain itself much longer. It's just a simple matter of time & this far along we're counting down the metaphorical seconds! Happy holidays people!
Something is gonna break and the planet will reset itself. It's already done this a few times.
