Does anybody know if a wedge of lime would make the symptoms more bearable?

Well done. Just suck all the fun out of a beer joke. :sigh:

Although it must be mentioned, it would be wise for the time being never to take a swig from anyone else's bottle or glass, whether it happens to be a Corona or some kind of beer.

Haha! This would be an interesting PR issue for Corona for sure. Although probably best not to panic, as with everyone else.

Which disease is typically comorbid with coronavirus?

Lyme disease
That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Hah.

Although in fact they both can have long term or disabling health consequences. Really damaging to the body, which is no fiesta.

I am in Portugal and they have their first two suspected cases. The Canadians quarantined in Trenton are about twenty minutes from where I live. A nurse friend of mine mentioned that if any of them has a serious medical emergency quarantine may need to be broken. I’m not certain how that would work actually. Due to the very exotic nature of some of my travels, I have been inoculated against and exposed to some nasty business, none of which is fun. I had Dengue fever while living in Thailand. Horrible. I got a rare sand fly infection in Sri Lanka and a nasty parasite in either Indonesia or Cambodia. Fortunately, these episodes involved only myself. However, my travel-and the travel of others-demonstrates a fact that the interconnected world we live in allows infectious diseases to be spread anywhere in the world within a day. A century ago Ebola would burn itself out in the village it started in and Corona Virus would never have left China.

A century ago Spanish Flu killed ~3% of the world population. You have to go a bit further back than that for diseases not to spread.

oooh, Dengue. Mr.. Fancy Pants Jet Setter. /s
Sorry...
BTW, with your "pedigree" are you perhaps in the Hash House Harriers?

I recall having to get my Dengue shots to get a visa to Singapore, which was approved, but someone told me to bring copies of my documentation just in case. I got to Chiang Mai with my visa and they wanted to see the medical certificate. I presented it and they disputed and debated and had to go find out if the Ontario Ministry of Health was a real thing or if I had just photo shopped it all. Despite being exhausted from (or maybe because of) my long flight, I actually started to find the whole situation funny. I basically resolved it by showing them Ontario on google maps.

I have no fucking idea what the Hash House Harriers are. BTW, you’re the dipshit that started this bullshit thread, so get stuffed.

Always be on the lookout for sarcasm friend, it could save you from making yourself look like a dipshit. ;)

The Doctor Who helped defeat smallpox explains what's coming.

"It's the most dangerous pandemic in our lifetime." ... a virus which none of us are immune to (by definition, a novel form of coronavirus.)

I wish more people were talking about the clear health risk facts surrounding this rather than merely speculating and arguing about trivialities.

Here is a very good new tubecast with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying.

They've observed some ususial infectiion patterns and share a scientifically informed discussion.
