A top U.S. health official said Tuesday the spread of coronavirus in the country appears to be inevitable, while warning that the disruptions could be “severe.”
Nancy Messonnier, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters the agency expects to see more cases in the U.S.
“As more and more countries experience community spread, successful containment at our borders becomes harder and harder,” Messonnier said.
And wait till the first deaths happen in Mexico. The flood of Mexicans and Central Americans coming over trying to outrun the disease will be biblical.
I’d expect the southern border to be militarized & locked down. I also expect Liberal politicians and courts to block the efforts just to fuck with Trump and the elections if they have not happened then or just because they simply cannot pass up this opportunity to regain power.
The bodies will pile up and contrary to what the Democrats are expecting, they won’t be able to control this one (look at the great job they are doing with Bernie if you don’t believe me). The sad shit about epidemics is that they do not have party affiliation and they will laugh at your attempts to capitalize it. When the shit hits the fan, expect to see the best and brightest of the Media and Politicians hanging from overpasses sporting a different size neck.
And suddenly having half the world’s small arms will no longer be considered a shame.
My other worry is: What happens if the virus does a number on Russia? They will want some serious payback. I would not see it impossible that a couple nukes would be dropped on the heads of the Chinese Politburo. Russians take shit like that personal, specially if the rumor this was a bio-weapon gone loose gets confirmed.
We are living in interesting times.
