Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Quite apart from the typical hysterical bullshit about roads "being choked up with ill and dying people", do you seriously not grasp how the use of terms like "covid-deniers" makes people like you look really, really stupid? No. It's you who looks stupid. You look like raving lu...
