It doesn’t sound any worse than some of the other diseases that already out there. Inconvenience and unpleasant certainly but not apocalyptic.

Has the apocalypse been diverted yet? Or do we need to get our foil hats back on?

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

I mean, I think there’s been over 100 deaths in China, so it’s not a small issue. Now, I think I it won’t be too terrible in America and Europe, but I think China might be in for a some actual trouble. We don’t have new disease kill this many people this quickly very often.

Some amazing reporting over the past few days really.

My favourite so far is that this company, 'Shanghai Ruilan Bao Hu San Biotech Limited' is the source of the coronavirus! Obviousy totally shady and a little too close to the Umbrella logo, and corona is an anagram of 'Racoon'!

Most posts about it say that it's near Wuhan, it's not - it's 500 miles away! But still.

@KALofKRYPTON Hah, that's pretty funny.

But TBH, I'm more surprised a biotech company is willing to copy the Umbrella logo, have they never heard of RE?

@Octane They probably thought they'd get away with it. China did have a pretty tight lock down on external media and entertainment.

The main issue is if it mutates and creates coughing zombies. The worst kind of zombies.

I had a chest infection this last week and it was weird reading about a respiratory disease. To be honest, doesn't scare me but then I do have young children and I'm like, god I hope they don't get it. Still, that's what you get for sending your kids to boarding school in China.

@Rudy_Manchego Surely puking or pooing zombies are worse than coughing zombies?

@JohnnyShoulder Nah I mean, the average cough can deposit zombie infection material many feet away, whereas a puke and poo have a more limited splash zone.

Also, if a zombie coughs really hard, their lungs might fly up at you.

@kyleforrester87 Not a surprise. But I haven't seen it debunked (the logo I mean).

"The Chinese Weibo post (below) mentions that this was for fun. The website seems to have featured these Resident Evil nods as a gag, and it was created before the then-new company’s official site launched. This appears to have been an in-joke"

Makes sense. There are eerie parallels, and then there's this. lol

@KALofKRYPTON Where are you getting the information that this company is linked to the coronavirus?

@Ralizah I don't think anyone ever thought that it was linked to the virus; but a Chinese company using the umbrella logo (which may be fake as well), and people pointing out that Corona is an anagram of Racoon is just a fun coincidence. I don't think anyone seriously meant that it was linked to the virus.

KALofKRYPTON

@Ralizah I didn't say it was - there was a lot of reporting that people were linking the two. I looked for myself and noted that the company was 500 miles away from Wuhan.
