Mexico Is Dangerously Unprepared For The Inevitable Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak
The disease is going to spread fast in Mexico, where a weak and corrupt state has made almost no preparations.

As much of the world goes into various stages of lock down because of the Wuhan coronavirus, Mexico is in denial. The government’s response thus far has been to downplay the risks and carry on with life as normal. Mexican officialdom has taken almost no steps to contain the virus or prepare for an outbreak, despite a warning last week from the deputy health minister that a widespread outbreak is inevitable and that community transmission could begin there in a matter of weeks.
When that happens—not if, when—things are going to deteriorate very quickly in Mexico. The outbreak will almost certainly affect the entire country, cripple the economy, and threaten to bring down an already weak and corrupt government.
~~ Snip ~~
All of the confirmed cases in Mexico so far have come from travelers arriving from Italy, Spain, and the United States, yet López Obrador’s administration has imposed no international travel restrictions nor taken any steps to tighten the border. According to one news report, passengers on a flight that arrived Friday in Mexico City from Spain—which imposed sweeping emergency restrictions over the weekend in response to a surging death toll—passed through passport control and customs with no health surveys or temperature screenings.
~~ Snip ~~
Simply put, Mexico has almost no ability to control vast swaths of its own territory in normal times. The state is endemically weak, with powerful cartels exercising a kind of de facto sovereignty over much of the country. State and institutional power matter most in times of war and pandemic, and Mexico is in dangerously short supply of both. When the coronavirus hits there, we might wish we had finished building that wall a long time ago.

Personally, I don't believe the disease is the problem, it's the panic created by the politicians and their co-conspiratorial media. That aid, I am suspicious of the reports from Mexico... It's well known that the Health and Medical programs of Mexico are less efficient there than other developed nations.
One bright ray that has come of this viral infection is that now even Democrats see the value of a border wall...
Well now let's check the numbers, shall we?

Mexico:
53 cases. Zero deaths. One active case in serious/critical condition. Rate of infection 0.4 per 1M population.

For comparison, in the US:
4552 cases, 85 deaths, twelve active cases in serious/critical condition, Rate of Infection 13.8 per 1M population.

So...because they don’t test anyone, there’s no problem?
"Don't test anyone"?

Oh, I see. You're getting "Mexico" mixed up with "The US".

But just think of how well that wall is protecting those poor Mexicans.

Do you want them to get infected from us or something?
I know right, I was gonna say now Mexico actually has a reason to pay for a wall but I've run that joke so many times I'm tired of it.

I doubt it. This particular strain of corona virus, cannot survive summer heat.
Are you sure about that? Because Tom Hanks and his wife went down to Australia and caught the virus when they got there. By the way, currently, it's summer in Australia.
Reasonably certain, but nothing is 100%. Already in Singapore, the number of infections has fallen dramatically.

Here's a good article from NPR-
Can Coronavirus Be Crushed By Warmer Weather?
Well, check post 12, because it's got a link to the current rate of cases in Australia, and they have over 298 cases, and 5 people have already died.
25.5 million people and 5 died, .....yeah, lets all panic!!
Again, the point went right over your head. One poster said that summertime would kill the virus because of the heat. I then pointed out that it is currently summertime in Australia, but they still have 298 cases, with more being reported daily. No, summer will more than likely not kill this virus.
Its a dry heat.

I don't like Mexicans at all, but today they have all my respect.

If they keep their decision of working normally in front of this -so called- pandemic, then Viva Mexico!!! they will show the world how to take control over the spread of a Flu like virus.

What a waste all the closing of schools and work centers because a virus which only kills the weak and older.

Even worst when the economy is going down because a virus which is not a plague killing millions but simply a sickness like the flu. What a bunch of dumps! Lol


From all the nuts around the world, it appears that until today, Mexicans are the only ones who are mentally sane enough to keep calm and take hard decisions only when danger of a plague really exists.

Lets see what happens tomorrow.

It's Mexico. The reason they haven't reported so many cases is because they're not doing much testing. They're behind us on the curve, so give them a couple more weeks and it's going to be a mess down there..

You are so predictable, Twatapotamus. I can always tell when you're about to respond to a previous post: You invariable mark the post as "funny."

Let's meet back here in another weak, K? We'll have a Corona beer. See that, I'm giving you a whole week to come up with a fresh lame excuse.
Ya dumb shit. Do you think I'm just making that up or something?

Yeah I do. Why do I think that? Because I've seen your posts. And now I see your sources.
You are so predictable, Twatapotamus. I can always tell when you're about to respond to a previous post: You invariable mark the post as "funny."

You know who else does that?

That;s absolutely FASCINATING, Beako. So what do you have, a little black book where you breathlessly follow what everybody does?

I'm just sayin', you're so predictable. I can read you like the back of my hand.

Wanna know why?

I used to be one of you. I know your dreams, your hopes, your plans, as well as your darkest, deepest fears.

You liberals, progressives, leftists, and Democrats are as transparent as glass. It's easy to figure out what makes you tick, especially if one has spent a considerable amount of time being one of them.

Mexico Is Dangerously Unprepared For The Inevitable Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak
The disease is going to spread fast in Mexico, where a weak and corrupt state has made almost no preparations.

16 Mar 2020 ~~ By John Daniel Davidson
As much of the world goes into various stages of lock down because of the Wuhan coronavirus, Mexico is in denial. The government’s response thus far has been to downplay the risks and carry on with life as normal. Mexican officialdom has taken almost no steps to contain the virus or prepare for an outbreak, despite a warning last week from the deputy health minister that a widespread outbreak is inevitable and that community transmission could begin there in a matter of weeks.
When that happens—not if, when—things are going to deteriorate very quickly in Mexico. The outbreak will almost certainly affect the entire country, cripple the economy, and threaten to bring down an already weak and corrupt government.
~~ Snip ~~
All of the confirmed cases in Mexico so far have come from travelers arriving from Italy, Spain, and the United States, yet López Obrador’s administration has imposed no international travel restrictions nor taken any steps to tighten the border. According to one news report, passengers on a flight that arrived Friday in Mexico City from Spain—which imposed sweeping emergency restrictions over the weekend in response to a surging death toll—passed through passport control and customs with no health surveys or temperature screenings.
~~ Snip ~~
Simply put, Mexico has almost no ability to control vast swaths of its own territory in normal times. The state is endemically weak, with powerful cartels exercising a kind of de facto sovereignty over much of the country. State and institutional power matter most in times of war and pandemic, and Mexico is in dangerously short supply of both. When the coronavirus hits there, we might wish we had finished building that wall a long time ago.


Comment:
Personally, I don't believe the disease is the problem, it's the panic created by the politicians and their co-conspiratorial media. That aid, I am suspicious of the reports from Mexico... It's well known that the Health and Medical programs of Mexico are less efficient there than other developed nations.
One bright ray that has come of this viral infection is that now even Democrats see the value of a border wall...
Well now let's check the numbers, shall we?

Mexico:
53 cases. Zero deaths. One active case in serious/critical condition. Rate of infection 0.4 per 1M population.

For comparison, in the US:
4552 cases, 85 deaths, twelve active cases in serious/critical condition, Rate of Infection 13.8 per 1M population.

/thread
Whelp --- time for an update here. Lessee what we got.

Mexico:
203 cases. 2 deaths. One active case in serious/critical condition. Rate of infection 2 per 1M population.

US:
24,116 cases, 288 deaths, 64 active cases in serious/critical condition, Rate of Infection 73 per 1M population.

FIVE DAYS LATER.

"OMG we need a wall"

Whelp --- here it is a week later, in the land where we keeps our appointments. Let's check the numbers and see what's developed.

Mexico: 848 cases / 16 deaths / Still one active case listed as "serious/critical. Infection density 0.1 per 1M population

USA: 141.854 cases / 2475 deaths / 2970 active "serious/critical. Infection density 429.

Looks to me like Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead, and JDork is still wrong.

We're still two weeks away from peak death. It will take longer to reach that in Mexico because as everyone knows, Mexicans move a little slower than everyone else. Unless their name is "Gonzales."
