    What's annoying is that if global measures of extreme reaction prevent a massive pandemic people are going to say it was overrated and fake news the whole time.

    Glad to see Hubei is under control. Markets need to see this and stop the selling off....

    I think the market already accounted for in q1 number and guidance

    I’m guessing what’s driving this market now is that + 2020 number and guidance + eu and us corona numbers that likely will yield to more economic downturn ... until we see sign of eu and us pulling out of this mess (a vaccine announcement would be nice) it seems the market is now basically factoring a global recession

    There are so many Italian people who work in Switzerland, just like that Mexican people who work in USA, so it is hard to image that Switzerland would be safe. Do not know about Sweden.

    Bull markets have been so long, just one trick could lead to the downturn without a warning. It is hard to pull money out in this situation.

    Need to buy stocks that will be skyrocketing ASAP. This crisis might be the only chance for the less than average Joe to ever get rich... Too bad I don't know about stocks...

    Many young doctors in Wuhan have died because the region is a disgustingly unclean slum where workers are exploited, people are packed in a collapsing infrastructure and the PRC is corrupt.

    Yes.

    No way to know.

    There is no state income tax. There is the federal income tax, sales tax etc. Also goods tend to be very cheap in Texas compared to the rest of the developed world.

    LMFAO I love the additional pressure to "protect law makers".

    Good to see the priorities are right.

    Yes and that is exactly why I said Trump is going to come out of this looking good.

    You know, there was a mechanism for him to go fight in battles...instead he chose going to Creighton and becoming a dentist instead. Guess he needed to be on the front lines and fight gingivitis and plaque instead of being in an actual war.

    What a clown.

    and this is another reason why testing is so important

    we cannot afford too many repeat of Seattle, but we maybe heading that way with the slow roll out of testing... which btw, we don't seem to even know the status of that

    The ABSENCE of LEADERSHIP. Trump has avoided major crisis....for the most part. However, the CHAOS in the administration is show in FULL COLORS. Everyone said it would eventually show and hurt the Country. Coronavirus is that time.

    What defines a pandemic?
    A pandemic is the worldwide spread of a new disease. An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus emerges and spreads around the world, and most people do not have immunity. Viruses that have caused past pandemics typically originated from animal influenza viruses.

    Trump is germaphobic, always has been. Privately, he is really upset with all this.
