seems like the easiest solution is simply to cut off Asia from the rest of the world - ban travel, ban goods, just ban everything, otherwise it's going to happen again.

Hey those people were able to enforce one male child for decades and then lock down the country for corona beer no reason they can't ban wet pussy markets and enforce the ban with millions of spys and a bullet to the back of the head. 

Good on 'em!

Apparently the banks are being flexible for low interest or easy access loans due to the coronavirus so if any one needs, to talk a lendor. Vancouver restaurants should all be closing today/tonight for an undetermined amount of time as well.

I stopped by Save-On at Cambie-7th about an hour ago. If you need stuff and see it, buy it now. It was the ' oddly funny yet are you for real' calm before the storm. No fights or anything of the sort (yet). People commenting to each other about the lack of product and the like. I thought that'd be expected, especially during spring break.

In other news, what a fucking beauty day eh?

Uhh... well they didnt enforce the policy that well. I went to the mainland in 2009 - Guangzhou/Panyu, Hainan or Sanya Island. My gf at the time, had 4 siblings. And their condo was probably 1800+sqft aaaand 3+ bedrooms.. hmmmm?  I asked about that policy and they said "we just go different city". Just a little fyi.

In one day, the NBA went from merely saying that players should fist bump instead of high-fiving fans, to shutting the whole multibillion-dollar operation down.

This was the correct decision when it comes to public safety, but it comes with its own set of costs, like the low-wage stadium and arena workers who now have no income at all.  

Several players have stepped up—including Zion Williamson, the nineteen-year-old rookie for the New Orleans Pelicans—and pledged to pay the stadium workers out of their own pockets. But it really should be the billionaire owners who step up and offer paid leave to all employees, as a smattering of franchise owners have done.
