  • It will stay there. We actually housed some of the first infected US patients in Mirimar (near San Diego), and successfully contained it. A few reasons why. A) It's near the desert, which has very little human traffic. B) Restricted access just to get on the base. C) Further restricted access to the medical facility on the base. This should be the benchmark of how to treat it successfully with little to no collateral. Military facilities in the desert are ideal for containing this type of situation.

  • Have you guys checked how many people has Korean government tested? About 46,127 until today, while, for example, Japan (which has twice the size of Korean population) did only about 1846. But the people diagnosed as positive? About 1,200 vs. about 150 (even after dropping all the people from the problematic cruise ship). Then you can calculate and compare the contagion rates. Would you feel more comfortable in a country that doesn’t conduct this test and find no patients? I feel many news so stupid. They have to first check how many tests were conducted first, also considering its population size.

    • @Leopold At least not a random FRproject video as the one you linked here. Was verified by multiple public media, and Central Disease Control Headquaters in South Korea. But considering that you didn't even know that Japanese passengers in the cruise ship used the public transportation, and the type of random videos you rely on for your information, I wouldn't really care about your comments any more. Sorry, but I am afraid that I have more important other things to handle. Hopefully, you learn to how to determine credible information soon.

      LeopoldLeopoldIl y a mois
    • @Leopold 1. The reporters have already check if the video is related to coronavirus at least in South Korea. They have checked with the fire department who saved the person and even the person who fell down himself. I believe some of those videos may be be true. But in Korea, they have checked all those suspicious cases. None of them were diagnosed as positive or counted as death by coronavirus. Don't believe all the FRproject videos. "Your argument" that those videos are real are not verified. Please check the following videos. You can turn on its subtitle (translated in English): or 2. Testing leads to quarantine, if diagnosed as positive at least in South Korea. So, testing really matters. And that’s why the death rate in Korea is much lower than Japan. 3. About those people from the cruise ship, yes, some countries sent charter flights to save their people. But not in Japan. As said, even without further testing, Japanese people from the cruise ship went back home using the public transportation. Check again., or Again, the subtitle can be translated in English.

      anothername99anothername99Il y a mois
    • @anothername99 those videos are real, those responders are real workers in suits. Besides all your "assumptions", the death number doesn't corresponding to what you claim. Japan's death would be 3-4 times higher than Korea, not testing them doesn't prevent them from dying. Those released from DP did not fly back on public transport, they went on charter planes to be handed over to their corresponding agencies. You can verify this with Australia, USA, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, don't know about the others.

      LeopoldLeopoldIl y a mois
    • Leopold Do you know those videos in Korea are either fake or nothing to do with Coronavirus? During this type of situation, people freak out and post anything regardless. The media and the government have already checked and confirmed. You seem to believe whatever you saw from FRproject. Also even if you remove the number of tests on that cult groups, they are doing the tests on the public general way more than Japan. How do you know whether it is not spreading as fast as Korea? Because of the smaller number of people diagnosed as positive? No way. Look at Italy and now Germany, without those religious groups, this virus spreads extremely fast. Besides, didn’t you know those cult groups have sects also in Japan? Moreover, looking at how the government handled the cruise issue (letting those passengers use public transportation to get home, without much test and observations), I don’t think you should feel comfortable.

"The government says it's an early spreader, but it's already in the spread." ”It is a public secret that Japan is not deliberately inspected to reduce the number of people infected because of the Olympics." via @FRproject

    • Peak Prosperity is extremely misleading and you are even more misleading to make people think as if there have been street deaths from the Coronavirus in Korea. Listen to the report carefully as they never confirmed that those people in the images were "dropping in the streets" from Coronavirus let alone they said, "dropping DEAD in the streets" as you misquoted. The Korean health authorities were wearing hazmat suits as a precaution when they went to pick up the body of the homeless person dead on the street, who later tested negative for the virus. It is quite on the contrary to how Japan let their health authorities get on the cruise ship without a hazmat suit on and were later infected. There had been no cases reported in Korea that people collapsed in the streets from the virus, and all street deaths discovered after the Coronavirus outbreak were tested negative. Scott Gottlieb who served as the 23rd Commissioner of the FDA tweeted 6 days ago that "Japan isn’t testing as much and has a high percent of unlinked cases relative to its total. Japan may be a big hot spot." Also, watch the CNBC news below.
