From the "Just When You Didn't Think It Could Get Any Worse" department:

"The Chinese province adjacent to the one where the coronavirus first appeared is facing an outbreak of H5N1 bird flu, according to news reports."

This strain, as is right now, is easily transmitted from bird to human, but difficult to transmit from human to human, unless it mutates. Let's hope not, this bird flu has a mortality rate of 60%.

Let's see . . . things to do today . . . cross "visit China" off of my bucket list. Check - it was never there in the first place.

They have all of the fixin's for a mass famine now. With the novel coronavirus impacting workers, swine virus culling hog herds and now chicken producers subject to virus, hundreds of millions could perish.

At least we akready had quarantine running on China, so hopefully we won't import any of the bird flu over here.

Also glad I went to Harbor freight yesterday and got 4 more boxes of 50 of surgical masks. I have a very good supply of nitrile gloves also.

I am waiting for the swine flu to show up again.
I'll just have to watch my neighbor since he's already a pig.
