I really wish the Chinese government wasn’t so oppressive. There’s so much they actually do right (of course there’s also an insane amount of things they do wrong). I’ve been super impressed with how they’ve handled this outbreak.

I mostly find it curious how something like this gets such huge media attention worldwide, while boatloads of way more dangerous diseases are never even mentioned.

Because China gets more attention in the global media than some forgotten African country like Uganda or Congo nobody cares about? :coffee:

I'm quite sure even inside China there are worse things causing more deaths.

Neither is this, in all reality. But sure, media needs their clicks :p

Well, to be fair, it is something new.


As obnoxious as it may seem, maybe all this media attention is helping limit its spread (just like it seemingly helped with ebola in 2014 and zika in 2016).

That is the reason why at least it is a bit understandable, yes. It's exactly what a Singaporese university professor on these diseases said yesterday: it's not that much more dangerous than the common flu, meaning it's not innocent but definitely not some killing monster. The question is how it'll develop.
