There is hope. It's looking like they've found a magic bullet for the Chinese Virus:

Yeah, that's correct. There was a law suit iirc. That's why the cars they now produce in China are called National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) and not Saab. SAAB AB (Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget (SAAB) is the company that makes the planes.

Geez,

Some ass wipe 'professional' on the news...
Just said there was no mandate to sterylize your food from the grocery store when you get home from the grocery store.
BUT, when he gets home, he lays out the non perishables on the table several hours and SPRAYS down what needs to go in the fridge.
Now I'm thinking... What the HELL are you going to spray it down with?
If you use a water spray, all you're gonna do is spread the germ.
If you lysol a pound of ground beef, well I'd rather not do that...

Yeah, you can only do so much. Follow the guidelines we're given as best you can, use some common sense, and hope for the best.

And he somehow lays all this out on the table without handling it or anything else...

Put it away, wash your hands afterwards. By the time you're ready to use it it should be fine.

Hand washing is good. Face masks are better.

We're getting more information that the virus is airborne via micro-droplets from coughs or forceful breathing. A Mount Vernon, Washington area Presbyterian Church 60 member choir practices together one time for 2 1/2 hours and two weeks later 45 have corona virus. This Japanese video explains...

Turns out shop towels might be effective to a micron. Not N95 effective, but a whole lot more effective than nothing. Very easy and inexpensive to make as shown below. I made two with my granddaughter tonight. Her's is blue and it's "Magic" somehow. Hope mine is too. Cheers.
