it's strange because there's no word about ENFORCING anything, for instance here's my previous comment

meaning how could he prevent infected people from arriving?? as far as I know he can't (the same for infected people from New York leaving to spread the disease)
What do you mean FoxNews won't get deleted? Why? Just curious.

social media? The article mentioned it was substantiated by local news media and also now National Review and Yahoo news.
I meant that posts saying chinese kits are bad are going rounds. However, it's interesting to note that China claimed that those kits were not part of government supplies. Also it's mentioned that the Czech government bought those from a vendor.

Sorry. Got it. Not official supply then. The headline said China implying China Government. Thank you for clarification.

it's ironic Mods deleted my repost of an SCMP article (when I slept, meaning tonight LOL), but I see several occurrences of "Trump" in this page

I'm saying it's ironic, is all
Now I'm curious what it is.
Was it on-topic?
Is "Trump" not allowed?
Was it disrespectful to others?
Or was your post judged to be not respect-worthy like many other otherwise good post?
Respectfully just very curious.

Without actual data, it is difficult to get a handle on this, but perhaps people with better knowledge of epidemiology can critique my theory...

Scientists in China have backtraced the earliest Covid case to November, no connection to the seafood market. Doctors in Italy now suspect there may have also been some cases in November, all would predate the official identification of Covid.

Wuhan was in lockdown by end of January and the virus spread was quickly halted within China. Wuhan cases continued to grow for the next couple weeks before getting under control. South Korea and Singapore also had numerous cases start to grow at this time, but also got a handle on it within weeks.

The situation in Europe is almost a full month removed from the lockdown and is now in the growth phase. US is about 6 weeks from the lockdown time and now in the rapid growth phase.

Italy and US were early in restricting China travel, and it seemed to work for a while, but the containment failed. Yet, regions in Asia which probably have more connection to Wuhan were able to do so with the lockdown in place.

Would this imply that there are areas with heavy infection that are being missed due to the tunnel vision of concentrating on Wuhan?

How possible could have started somewhere in the Middle East such as Iran, heavily infected, but we still have no idea how bad it actually is?
Sorry and just read your post. Not really following your theory as you listed all these non-iran events and postulated that it could have come from Iran. Not saying it is not possible but anything and anywhere is possible until somebody does a real investigation. Not badgering but just not understanding.
