I heard that Vietnam is switching a factory from making garments to making face masks.  That seems wise.  Do we still have garment factories in the US?

Radio this morning said Afghanistan has reported their first case.  Somebody returning from Iran.  Afghans have closed their border with Iran.  Same with Turkey.

The figures are not stacking up in incubation period. Maybe more like 28 days.

>> stockpilers

I've been stocking up but I'm not sure I agree with buying high-priced "emergency" foods.

Many ordinary groceries have a shelf life of months to years so I'll settle for normal stuff.

Just more of it and better organized than usual!

Vaccine

It will be at least a year, if it works.

The problem is this is an RNA virus and RNA viruses mutate rather quickly.

Yeah, no need, beans/rice/oatmeal and canned foods have are dirt cheap and last for a very long time.

There is one freeze dried bulk canned food I would consider: a big 3 lbs. can of powdered eggs.

How the Coronavirus Revealed Authoritarianismís Fatal Flaw
Chinaís use of surveillance and censorship makes it harder for Xi Jinping to know whatís going on in his own country.

An interesting read. It reminds me of how the East Germans collected minutiae on citizen and failed to see that the Soviet Union was collapsing.

To a lesser but more pertinent extent, it reminds me of a president who hollows out his cabinet to get rid of any and all dissenting voices, and the problems that arise from that.

Let's not beat around the bush.
