    Let the hilarity commence: Africa mobilizes against corona virus.

    Ebola has been a major disappointment, malaria can't seem to find 3rd gear, and AIDS just takes too fucking long.

    Enter Wuhan corona virus. GO Wuhan! GO Wuhan!

    Anciao Fabiao Paulo, an Angolan student, told AFP that "it's over" if coronavirus reaches his country.
    "Our health system is vulnerable and there are no good specialists. With malaria, people are already dropping like flies," he said.
    Several countries, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Angola, Botswana and Ivory Coast, have signalled possible infections.
    But confirming coronavirus can take time, as health authorities lacking expertise have to send samples to labs in countries such as South Africa.
    Hopefully the humans doing the testing in SA will falsify the results and say the infected niggers are not infected. Give this blessing a good head start.

    I'm thinking that they'll fail just as miserably at fighting the Coronavirus as they do everything else. I just wish it was more virulent. Ebola chan has soooooo disappointed me.

    One better, our minister of health has said that the situation is under control. In short, if it's hits proper, we are fucked.

    The only problem with that as I see it is that they'll do about as bad with quarantine as they always do with ebola. The virus can spread through the whole shitty continent for all I care but you know there'll be the random infected nigger getting loose and infecting the rest of humanity.

    I'm afraid the horse has already left the barn on this one. There are 7 known cases in the US, which means there are probably 5-10x's as many already here.

    Take precautions and stay alert.

    We further compared the characteristics of the donors and their ACE2 expressing patterns. No association was detected between the ACE2-expressing cell number and the age or smoking status of donors. Of note, the 2 male donors have a higher ACE2-expressing cell ratio than all other 6 female donors (1.66% vs. 0.41% of all cells, P value=0.07, Mann Whitney Test). In addition, the distribution of ACE2 is also more widespread in male donors than females: at least 5 different types of cells in male lung express this receptor, while only 2~4 types of cells in female lung express the receptor. This result is highly consistent with the epidemic investigation showing that most of the confirmed 2019-nCov infected patients were men (30 vs. 11, by Jan 2, 2020).

    We also noticed that the only Asian donor (male) has a much higher ACE2-expressing cell ratio than white and African American donors (2.50% vs. 0.47% of all cells). This might explain the observation that the new Coronavirus pandemic and previous SARS-Cov pandemic are concentrated in the Asian area.
    Don't cross your fingers yet, lads. Ebola-chan seems to be reserved for Africans.
