but only one case in our town so far (but a couple deaths in old people: No more than the usual numbers, but still one does wonder)
I wonder.... do they have the “90 day money back guarantee” on these things like most stuff from China ?
You don’t suppose that
Mr. Duterte “chose poorly”???
O, my gosh. If EVER there was a perfect initialization for a bureaucracy.
Yo, Gov. Coomo. You want to accuse someone of declaring war? You little chickensh*t. You don’t have the gizzards to point to china.
the rest of the inventory will be found at dollar stores an Amazon.com in no time

My wife’s older cousin (who raised my wife as a teen) lives 300 ft. away from a lady Doctor in Cebu who died from COVID-19 a day or two ago. The victim’s husband, also a doctor, is also ill with the virus. They had hosted some sort of social function at what I guess we would call a reception hall that they own, a few weeks ago, and 35(?) people are under quarantine.
RP is going into their summer, now, so the hot temperatures should help, but, no news to you, many people live, work, and transport in very crowded conditions. (I thought my wife’s cousin’s neighborhood was packed, then we went through a “medium poor” part of Manila. Holy crap.) I’d guess, “advantage virus”.
I found a good article on what Philippines is facing. We think we have it tough?
