    As tragic as it is, is this more than just a mere pandemic?

    Given the fact world scientists and computers are capable of running models that can predict very accurately likely scenarios like pandemics, did the Chinese use that information to start world war 3?

    No? Then consider how sneaky they've been stealing our intellectual property and building their military as they strive to become the top power in the world.

    They didn't count on Trump winning office and that he'd dampen their plan by enforcing sanctions which would slow their economy to a crawl. So to keep moving forward, did they decide to release the Krakken or virus earlier than expected?

    Oddly unlike all other strains, THIS particular strain doesn't effect children or anyone too harshly except the elderly. Engineering it that way would get rid of them but ignore the healthy young to carry on their society while at the same time cause global panic in economies around the world. So is this just the beginning of WW3?

    Getting rid of the elderly would absolutely decimate the Republican party in the US.
    While I don’t think the virus was engineered it would be a terrifying way for China (and numerous other nations) to remove what they feel is dragging their countries down.

    Interesting conspiracy theory

    I don't know, from a global strategic perspective, wouldn't taking out the population of the infirm, who consume rather than produce, strengthen the US in a potential conflict with China, rather than weaken it? This conspiracy theory doesn't make sense. If China actually COULD design a virus with that much precision, wouldn't they design one that would take out the part of the population that are the most physically fit and most likely to serve in the military? That's what I would do if I had the desire to do that and the power of custom virus design. Conspiracy theories often don't make sense...

    Hmmm.... custom virus design?

    If I had that ability, I would design mine to only affect all New England Sports fans (Patriots, Celtics, Bruins)...

    That includes waxing Brad Marchand, but not Tom Brady (I'm not without some mercy)...

    Uh...so I appreciate the link, but perhaps you might want to actually start with a discussion about the topic you chose instead of immediately launching into some bioweapon conspiracy nonsense.

    A just born infant in London has the virus, they don't know if she/he had it in utero or whether it was contracted after she/he was born. Some younger previously apparently healthy people in Italy have died from the virus.

    I think its likely that the Chinese economy will bounce back from this much quicker than most people are projecting, and very possibly much quicker than ours. Their command and control structure is ideal to respond to this sort of emergency.

    Oh, yeah, SO SNEAKY!?

    Our businessmen were actually hypnotized and blackmailed in accepting billions of dollars to sell out USA patents and sell out America!

    These billionaires are even now in the villas and penthouses and yachts of their contemplating their suicides from their guilt and shame for loading up their billions to sell off America's working men and women!

    Even Trump made the Chinese to give some patents and trademarks to Trump's wife and daughter to show the Chinese can't get away with EVERYTHING!

    Yeah, the virus can be an effective, yet very harsh, diagnoser of hidden conditions.

    I wish the child born infected well, tough way to come into the world. Makes naming the child easy though.
