    A new virus in China is looming stronger than COVID-19:

    Langya virus: How worrying is the new animal-to-human LayV virus spreading in China? | Euronews

    Do you think it will lead to new pandemic?

    Edit:

    News also say:
    But still mutations and other forms of transmission probably due to mutations are not excluded,
    thus if China doesn't deal with this one quickly everything is possible I think.

    This one better finish the job or not even try. All these upstart viruses aren't worth their salt.... :mad:

    Probably not.

    "While it’s certain that the virus was transmitted from an animal to a human, researchers are still unsure about whether human-to-human transmission is possible at all."

    Besides, this isn't the same world as pre-covid. Travel to China is only a fraction of what it
    was, and it's harder than ever for Chinese citizens to be allowed to travel abroad now.

    Then again, if the CCP attacks Taiwan, all flights and travel will be banned, like for Russia now.

    True, the world isn't the same.
    Likely only mutation of the virus can accelerate infection.

    It's funny though how China seems it's becoming exporter of viruses.

    True, the sheer numbers in China accelerate the vector chances.
    But like I said, China won't be exporting much of anything at all if they attack Taiwan.

    Yes. Unless China is exporting shrews, it seems most unlikely this virus will spread.

    According to Dylan Thomas that includes Wales, if you remember Butcher Beynon from Under Milk Wood. "Tuesday: shrews. And on Wednesday, I'll be after the corgis with my little cleaver." Or something like that - I forget the exact lines.

    I'm just pleased to see the algorithm has not yet decided to send me more stuff on ground screws or other tedious engineering stuff. So no connection. You can report me for off-topic posting, I suppose.:oops:

    It's ok. The algorithm works on browsing history, you know like if you spend a lot of time looking at women's clothing websites. :)

    Well I never did before, but now I've been on a few times, sending links to Lucia, to various interested parties.

    So if that means I see more of her, that will be excellent. I'll try to keep the algorithm topped up, to keep her in view. ;)

    But I know people who'll say it with sincere
    anger instead of a mirthful smirk.

    Don't type too loud. A Democrat somewhere might actually be drooling at the opportunity.
