Must have been that the conservative media was too busy melting down over the tan suit.

Love that vaccine idea. Maybe they can even put one together along the lines of the H1N1 effort. As I recall that vaccine proved deadlier than the virus.

The conservative media wasn't reporting heavily in H1N1.

What do you mean by "tan suit"?

Air travel from Europe to US to shut down over coronavirus. But what about our southern border?

Quote:
Trump is rightly shutting off travel to U.S. airports from Europe. Shouldn’t it be a no-brainer that all illegal immigration, even dressed up as asylum and “unaccompanied minors,” will be suspended at our land border as well?

Greening Our Way to Infection

Quote:
The COVID-19 outbreak is giving new meaning to those “sustainable” shopping bags that politicians and environmentalists have been so eager to impose on the public. These reusable tote bags can sustain the COVID-19 and flu viruses—and spread the viruses throughout the store.

Coronavirus could infect 35 to 70 per cent of Canadians, experts say

Quote:
The coronavirus could hit 35 to 70 per cent of the Canadian population, making “a huge number of people ill,” many critically, and makeshift hospitals and quarantine centres could be needed to shore up a health system that has virtually no give, experts predict.

According to a disease-transmission model developed by University of Toronto researchers, the virus’ overall attack rate in Canada, without public health interventions, could exceed 70 per cent. That number drops sharply, by about half, “if we add modest control,” said epidemiologist Dr. David Fisman, one of the model’s creators, but it will take “aggressive social distancing and large scale quarantines” to reduce it further, he said.
Bold mine.

Where's the hue & cry from the left?

Airlines Flying Empty “Ghost” Flights During Coronavirus Outbreak to Avoid Losing Flight Spots

Quote:
This is bureaucracy at its finest (or worst).

With the coronavirus prompting many to stay in their own germy homes, airlines are wasting thousands of gallons of jet fuel flying empty flights in order to hold their flight slots.

Europe’s use it or lose it policy seems to be the culprit here. DOES ANY ONE CARE ABOUT THE CLIMATE?!?!
