Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

This is both concerning and in some ways reassuring as well as surprising. The US .mil is prepping for a pandemic. It is surprising because I am not used to seeing common sense preparations like that. Note the new name COVID19 ... BOLO for use of this term in lieu of coronavirus. U.S. Northern Comma...
