    Funny, I don't seem to see hospitals, prisons, fire, police asking that the techs not come out..Copies must be important to someone..And people do die from not getting a paycheck. There's no cure for at least 70 pretty common diseases..Again we don't shut down the country over them. Maybe this is one like the cold..there is no cure..you have to get it and get it to not get it again..What will you do then..Hide out for the rest of your life? And the other 40 deaths per year I mentioned are acceptable to you?

    Your still whinning and your still working and getting a full paycheck some of the tech's here have already been layoff.
    Nobody Ever died cause they can't make a copy. But You sure as hell could infect someone but that's ok with you as long as you get your check.

    You’ve probably heard the expression those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach.
    A Rhode Island public school teacher perhaps gave that chestnut a new meaning by allegedly taking to Twitter with an offer to pay someone infected with COVID-19 to cough on President Trump.
    The educator in question, who has subsequently deactivated her Twitter account that purportedly operated anonymously under the handle “Proud Teacher,” is said to teach English as a Second Language to middle schoolers. She previously taught in neighboring Massachusetts.

    There is no indication as yet as to whether public school administrators will look into this matter further with an eye toward possible discipline. If deemed an actual threat to the president rather than just another day on left-wing Twitter, the Secret Service would need to get involved.

    and they wonder why the Secret Service comes knocking on doors...

    well....

    1) China isn't known to be gentle with dissidents
    2) China has lost MANY MANY 'reporters' ( along with Iran ) who have just started to realize their governments lied.
    3) Many reports have come out about the number of caskets/urns are piling up.
    4) One female reporter made it from China to England and reported Manufacturing Plants are running full tilt - lights... machines ...AC but few people on site and NO PRODUCTION..
    5) We know China and WHO didn't report the truth and on time.

    projections are coming out that China knew about the break-up as Oct 2019, but never really let it out until it got WAY out of hand.

    So knowing what we do know about China.... where do you think the USERS of those phones are? AND is this just the tip of the "missing phone" Iceberg?

    and yes it is the Wuhan or Chinese Virus .... due to ORIGIN of the outbreak.

    America leads the world in Covid testing with over 1 million tests as of today 3/30/2020. According to Azar during today’s Press Briefing in the Rose Garden.

    FALSE!
    Chinese-made testing kits are becoming a more common presence throughout Europe and the rest of the world, adding a new dimension to the roaring debate over dependence on medical supplies from China.

    As the horror of the coronavirus outbreak in China was unfolding over January’s Lunar New Year holiday, a group of technicians were holed up in a Nanjing facility with a supply of instant noodles, working long hours to develop testing kits for diagnosing the virus.
    Already at that point, the coronavirus had ripped through the city of Wuhan and was spreading rapidly around China. A handful of diagnostic tests had already been approved by the central government in Beijing, but hundreds of firms in China were still scrambling to develop new ones.
    “I did not think about applying for approvals in China,” said Zhang Shuwen, founder of Nanjing Liming Bio-products. “The application takes too much time. When I finally get the approvals, the outbreak might already be finished.”
    Instead, Zhang is part of a legion of Chinese exporters selling testing kits to the rest of the world amid the rapid spread of the pandemic outside China, where the outbreak is now increasingly under control, leading to a fall in domestic demand.


    In February, he applied to sell four testing products in the European Union, receiving official CE accreditation in March, meaning they complied with health, safety and environmental standards set by European regulators. Now, Zhang has an order book brimming with clients from Italy, Spain, Austria, Hungary, France, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and South Korea.
    “We have so many orders now that we are working until 9pm, seven days a week. We are considering working 24 hours a day, asking workers to take three shifts every day,” Zhang said.
    It is estimated that more than 3 billion people are now on lockdown across the world, with the global death toll from coronavirus surpassing 30,000.
    Infection hotbeds have exploded across Europe and the United States, with the epicentre shifting out of Wuhan in central China to Italy, then Spain and now New York. The chronic shortage of testing equipment means that rather than being diagnosed, potential patients considered “low-risk” are being asked to stay at home.


    US now has world’s most coronavirus cases, surpassing China
    “At the start of February, about half of our testing kits were being sold in China and half abroad. Now, there are almost none being sold domestically. The only ones we sell here now are for passengers arriving from outside [China] who need to be tested,” said a senior executive at the BGI Group, China’s largest genome sequencing company, who spoke under the condition of anonymity.
    At the start of February, BGI was making 200,000 kits a day out of its plant in Wuhan, the original epicentre of the outbreak. The plant, with a “few hundred” workers, was kept running 24 hours a day while most of the city was closed.
    Now, he said the company is producing 600,000 kits per day and has just become the first Chinese company to gain emergency approval to sell its fluorescent real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests in the US.
    Chinese-made testing kits are becoming a more common presence throughout Europe and the rest of the world, adding a new dimension to the roaring debate over dependence on medical supplies from China.

    Speaking as someone from "the rest of the world" only 30% of them work do you bother looking for reliable sources outside of your little world?
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.
