Novel coronavirus cases top 79,000 amid worsening outbreaks in South Korea and Italy

Source: CNN

Chinese President Xi Jinping has warned the novel coronavirus is the worst public health crisis facing the country since its founding, as new outbreaks continued to expand in South Korea and Italy, raising fears of a global pandemic.

Speaking Sunday, Xi said the "current epidemic situation is still severe and complex, and the prevention and control work is at the most critical stage." The crisis is "the most difficult to prevent and control in China" since the founding of the People's Republic in 1949, Xi said. He added the outbreak was likely to have a "great impact" on the country's economy, but that epidemic prevention and control methods were beginning to have an effect.

Following Xi's address, China announced it would delay the annual gathering of nearly 3,000 national legislators in Beijing, according to state media on Monday, underscoring the continuing impact and severity of the outbreak.

As of Monday, there were at least 77,150 confirmed cases in mainland China, bringing the global total to
more than 79,000, with the death toll at 2,620.

11. You know, during my darker moments, I agree with you

During those moments, I suspect that the Almighty has some nastier things in store for us if we don't see the error of our ways and not only sack Donnie, but as many Republican congressional representatives and Republican senators as we can get at.

12. I talked a few times with a guy who ranted about, basically, consumerism

and how it was polluting the earth, and our minds ... kept referring to the book of Enoch. This was no religious crazy man, not even religious, just an ordinary guy. But he swore God will come down and punish us.

In another vein we have deviated from the Founders' conception of citizens and patriots. There were few if any couch potatoes in the Revolutionary generations. Hands to work, hearts to God.

And that's in a way where we're at today. Too few patriots, too lazy. It's hard to have a strong national state when all are bought off with self-indulgence. I don't know if we could summon the patriotism of WWII again.

This is worrisome.

5. Here's the link:

I seem to still be able to use it at home, but it's no longer working on my work computer.
Maybe it has something to do with the firewall?

I thought (when I posted) that maybe Johns Hopkins had removed public access, but it might be that my work has blocked the access, since it's still working for me at home.

10. Please see my post #5.

It seems it was an issue with my employer's firewall, not Johns Hopkins.

I apologize for the confusion.
