Spanish Flu 2: Electric Boogaloo when?
>Allegedly spread from animals to Chinks but has not been known to spread to humans yet
It's already been confirmed human to human transmission is possible.
Some more information on the virus: The virus supposedly started at a seafood market in Wuhan, China although even those who did not visit the market contracted it as per the WHO: http://archive.is/6P5iG.
While the seafood market appears to be main source of infection several other live animal markets are potential sources. Cases have already been reported in Beijing, Shenzhen, & Shanghai but I believe those people recently came from Wuhan http://archive.is/vqDJ3.
A big issue would be lower level governments covering up the number of cases for their own reasons. Beijing promises to be tough on that but knowing china the lower levels will skirt around Beijing's orders like they do with everything else. How easily this virus transmits has yet to be seen as well but with generic cold/flu symptoms it could easily slip by.
>So /k/, how do you prepare for a worldwide plague scenario?
Look up Wim Hof. So far I've embraced the cold and just that has been working well for me so far. Just got practice my breathing.
