Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Mods - can we put all the China stuff into a separate thread? It’s a very good discussion, but not really fitting into this topic.
The disgusting behavior of the CCP regarding their Chinese virus coverup is part of this discussion.

I don't know if this is the right thread for it but just wanted to give a big shout out to Super Duper who have lived up to their name over the past month or so. First they put a ban on bulk buying in their stores to make sure there was enough of everything to go around, and now that they seem to have huge supply of everything (I've never seen it so full of food) they've taken the bulk restriction off and implemented a mandatory face mask policy. They don't seem to have raised any of their prices or engaged in any exploitative shenannigans. They've also set up makeshift barriers to protect their staff.

Kudos.

Super Duper . . . don't seem to have raised any of their prices or engaged in any exploitative shenannigans.
to be fair it would have been difficult to raise prices any further

The total death numbers between coronavirus and the seasonal flu is misleading. Everyone gets the flu, and large numbers get flu vaccine as well, so the death numbers are misleading. The number of flu deaths is also over the course of an entire year. The coronavirus has only been around for a couple of months and only to a limited population, and already has a kill rate of 20% of the flu.

So it’s much more infectious than the flu, and in certain groups, causes more serious problems, the worst being respiratory failure requiring a ventilator.

For all the nay sayers saying that coronavirus is just like the flu, look no further than Italy. The high percentage of patients requiring ventilators for long periods of time is crippling medical system, and causing country to be in lockdown.

Please be safe everyone.

Chinese Scientists Destroyed Proof of Virus in December

also what happened to the results from the initial tests at the market
which are crucial to identifying the transmission route?

Anyone want to guess what happened?

In the USA alone there are over 16,000 babies electively murdered by their mothers every week.
More babies are murdered every day than have died from the wuhan china virus...
A majority of these murders are African American babies ...
The World murders millions of babies every year by choice.
This makes the wuhan china virus look like the sniffles.
