Trader Joe's (3/12) should be shut down with lines like this. Why are they letting this happen?
It will be interesting what they find out about the virus sctructure. They will be able to tell if manmade not that we will ever know though.I've always wanted to take a real survival course..like they have in Utah. This is a wake up call. If it can happen now it can happen again. And I'm still not convinced it was caused by a fucking bat. But that doesn't matter..it happened.
Costco was a well-oiled machine yesterday. They closed the regular entrance & opened a side entrance, and blocked that too so only 1 member per time enters. At point of entry they have, "WE HAVE" and "WE DO NOT HAVE" signs for the most common items everyone's there for (eggs, milk, bread, TP (sigh), disinfectant, etc..) so they can turn people away immediately without even having them needlessly enter. They wipe all the cart handles down (and having been doing this for several weeks, WAY before people even considered this), food service court is closed, and there are "social distance" signs on eisels all over the store telling people to stay 6 feet away from each other.
Walmart, however, was doing absolutely nothing. They didnt even wipe cart handles, unless possibly somebody did that already before racking them (I doubt it).
That's beacuse it is not super easy, the virus has to mutate and be given the right conditions and environments to do so. But with population sprawl and some countries still having open air bush meat markets and the like, the environments are available. Just need the right conditions and well....Had the same thought.
On the other hand, I had the opposite thought... a bit surprising these kind of viruses don't jump species more often.
SO they are making you think that. Iceland has found 40 mutations and can trace where they originated.
Oh boy, it's conspiracy theory time!!!
