    "More lethal than SARS" - No, COVID-19 isn't more lethal than SARS. SARS had a mortality rate estimated at 10% to 15%. COVID has about a 2% case fatality, and that is from John's Hopkins.

    It should be noted that factory farming has encouraged extensive use of antibiotics causing superbugs. Antibiotics don't always wipe out the intended bacteria, but select for hardier strains of that bacteria. Most antibiotics are broad spectrum, so they don't just target the offending bacteria but can wipe out other non-harmful or even helpful microbes in our bodies causing other problems. They also don't target other microbes like viruses, parasites, etc. Those require different medicine that again can select for hardier versions of the offending microbe.

    As much as I hate to admit it, anything less that $160 Billion / yr is a benefit in cost for a pandemic for the US. Though I think even if we did spend $64 Billion / yr, we'd still manage a major pandemic every 100 years. I also have to agree Covid-19 as bad as it is, is not Major pandemic ala1918 Flu, Black Death, etc. as far as death rate vs infection rate.

    Lets all remember as well that after all said and done 1200 + 600 + lets say at this point 1200 is going to put america in a depression after all said and done. This amount is roughly what you pay in taxes alone over roughly on average 2.5 years. Yet the government is going to act like it took a huge loss and double or even triple down on taxes in the future citing being a savior of Americans when they were in need. Keep in mind these "handouts" were spread out over a full year just to let 2 old con men claimed they helped. Lets not mention that countries of origin knew of the infection and did nothing till it was news worthy. Also even when it was addressed people were so desensitized from being lied to from all sides, nobody and I mean fucking nobody believed it till their aunt Karen died of it. How can you be mad about anything when tons of things are upsetting? My suggestion is live like you will not get another chance. I can promise you that you will not. My name is Sid Mail and I approve this message.

    Really disappointed with this episode, John is pulling punches. Forget the possibility that covid may have actually come from a lab in Wuhan, the next pandemic is likely to come from a lab. Here in the united states alone, bio labs miss handle viruses on a weekly basis causing mini outbreaks that are thankfully contained but there’s a possibility that there will be one that isnt. Human error runs rampant in our high tech bio labs every year. Check the numbers on measles outbreaks and the correlation to bio labs here in the states.

    tbf the wet wildlife markets are just the tip of the iceberg. Can you imagine what the answer would be/is when Westerners go to South American or African countries all high and mighty to tell them they are "destroying the environment" and that they should stop "encroaching on natural wildlife territories" to prevent climate change and/or zoonose viruses jumping to humans? They'll freaking laugh us out of their country all the way to the airport. They would rightfully point to their current state of affairs and blame the West for it. How many times has the CIA couped and putsched in South America in the interest of resource extraction or simple price setting? Showing up to African countries after the shit we pulled during the colonialisation phase of Western expansion to dictate terms and rules to them after we pillaged their resources is nothing short of impossible. They're all rightfully miffed at the idea that all of a sudden the high and mighty West wants to dictate to them yet again how to do shit after we have kept doing exactly that for centuries in our own selfish interest. Like, when's it time for THEM to extract their own resources on their own terms? It's their jungle after all. How can we - who have largely deforested our own countries (at least in Europe) - show up to them and go "uuuuuh, sorry, but you shouldn't do that". How could they even start to control that, what with the economic state most of these countries are in? Hell, "the West" is still buying conflict minerals from bloody tyrants and dictators in Africa just to make smartphones, thereby supporting death squads, horrendous poverty of the working class, and other heinous practices. And we want to make an ethical argument to these people concerning viruses when most of the population there don't even have access to healthcare?

    Let's not forget about the mass poverty, poor people living in close quarters, crap health care systems, and complete reliance on the system of logistics within the poorly designed consolidation efforts the morons ( politicians ) have created through "innovation", that increases the spread of disease millions fold each year. There are not even any food trees in the entire state I live in for F@#$'s sake. What makes these total geniuses think that forcing people to interact during a pandemic is a good idea? Why would anyone in their right mind ever think that not having food trees around them was a good idea? Are we not a biological organism? Do we not have certain physiological requirements? Is not one of the requirements, nutritional supplementation? The only explanation for this incompetence is pure greed. These people are so maniacal that they actually make laws that force us to work, in order to pay for food, so that we are forced to profit someone else before we can even eat! It is pure terrorism and slavery. WTF!? Idiots. Can anyone say Greek and Roman sequel number 3 on a global scale?

    So the solution to the problem of nature attacking us is for humanity to harmonise and balance our needs with animals and the environment? Seems pretty obvious when you think about it. Factory farms are the worst though. They only make a profit because they constantly break environmental laws and lobby for the removal of others and get away with it.

    So in other words, wrap yourself 6x in bubble wrap and wait for your death in your 70s if not sooner. Instead of panicking, live your life. If you die along the way, so be it. Everytime I hear about climate change I groan, people starting new families doesn't help. Earth will end eventually, perhaps the next 3 years is the last lap on the way to "Wow! humans really fucked up this planet. But, Oh wait, NASA's trying to shoot people to Mars so we can fuck up that planet next" Agent Smith got it right in the Matrix back in 1999, humans are a virus on Planet Earth.
