Obamacare failed to provide enough ventilators, respirators, face masks, test kits, etc. etc.
Obama hired casting couch girls for pandemic office.
China virus pandemic is a government failure - not enough walls, guns, screening at the border.
The Spanish flu 1919 preceded the roaring 20s stock market boom.
Fewer are dying now than from the Spanish flu.
and a new baby boom is being made now.
Another roaring 20's
but without such a big stock market boom, less travel, tourism, air travel, people packed in tight spaces.
I put this note in outbox a few weeks ago:
Good summary from Las Vegas.
Virus probably coming.
Came from animals, cat bat rat snake … do not eat.
Cats dogs deer coyote ... animals spread disease.
Should be more lions, wolves to eat excessive animals restore the natural ecosystem.

Hawaii economy may shut down by summer.
Texas oil economy may crash $ economy driven by oil, petrochemicals that will not be selling well.
Why is novel coronavirus different?
-- It may have jumped from a snake in Wuhan.
Normally, bats are the culprits.
-- It then necame transmissable from human to human, which is very rare.
-- An infected person may not show symptoms for up to 14 days after exposure.
There are more than 80,200 confirmed cases worldwide and at least 2,704 deaths.
There have been 53 confirmed cases in the United States.
Most of these cases are among the passengers that were on the Diamond Princes cruse ship.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued warning on Tuesday saying
a novel coronavirus outbreak is inevitable in the U.S.
CDC outlines what schools and businesses should do if hit by outbreak,
such as closing or dividing school classes into smaller groups.
CDC also advises local communities and cities to
"modify, postpone or cancel mass gatherings"
if needed and businesses should cancel meetings and conferences and
arrange for employees to work from home if possible.
The CDC is hopeful that the coronavirus outbreak is seasonal like the flu
and will subside in the summer.
If there is an outbreak in the U.S.,
disruptions to everyday life could be severe,
according to CDC.
12 states and localities in the US currently have the capability to test for the virus.
A clinical trial of Gilead's experimental drug for the coronavirus will begin soon.
The coronavirus outbreak could force cancellation of 2020 Tokyo Games,
they have approximately 3 months to decide.
Despite China's efforts,
they have not been able to keep the illness from spreading to 35 countries.
The economic fallout appears "much worse" than SARS,
which cost the global economy approximately $40 billion.
The U.S. currently has a stockpile of 30 million surgical masks,
but country may need 300 million for health workers.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS
Fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat and trouble breathing.
Older people and people with pre-existing medical conditions are at the most risk.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF
• Stay aware of what is happening in your community or any place you travel on a regular basis.
• Wash your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water.
Make sure to wash for at least 20 seconds.
• Take a multivitamin and 50mg of Zinc per day, which will help inhibit viruses like coronavirus.
• Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
• Maintain at least 3 feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing and/or sneezing.
• If you are the one coughing and/or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue.
Throw away tissue immediately.
• Clean surfaces you touch often both at home and at work,
especially if they are touched by other people.
• Cook raw foods thoroughly.
• If you have a fever and/or difficulty breathing, contact a doctor immediately.
If possible, you should call first and let them know what is happening.
• Avoid visiting live markets in areas that have recently had new coronavirus cases
and avoid contact with live animals
and any surfaces they may have touched.
• Avoid nonessential travel to China or any other place that has an outbreak.
You will not catch the coronavirus from parcels and letters from China or any country where there has been an outbreak.
Putting bleach under your nose will not stop you from getting the coronzvirus and can be dangerous if used on skin.
Rinsing your nostrils out with saline will not protect you from coronavirus.
There is limited evidence it will help you recover more quickly from common cold.
Donald Trump has made the U.S. more vulnerable to the coronavirus.
But Fox News is pretending he is protecting us.
Media Matters has an excellent rundown of Trump's dishonest incompetence surrounding the coronavirus,
Trump's initial reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak was to downplay concerns about it,
telling CNBC in a January interview that it was
"totally under control" and
"it's going to be just fine."
Trump also claimed the disease would "miraculously" go away by April
-- which was contradicted by the director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
And two weeks after
hundreds of Americans were trapped on a cruise ship in a Japanese port under quarantine
because some passengers tested positive for COVID-19,
the Trump administration evacuated them to the U.S.
But the administration flew home passengers it knew were infected on a flight with other uninfected passengers,
against the CDC's advice -- a decision which reportedl
