neb: Interesting reading for those who can read German, the German government's risk analysis for nation-scale threats, including a pandemic. The specific threat scenario for a pandemic starts on page 55. I wonder how long it'll take for the conspiracy nuts to latch onto this: It talks about a virus that originates at a wet market in Asia in January and hits Europe in April, and continues on from there. Amazing that the Robert Koch Institute, roughly the German equivalent of the CDC, already knew about this in 2012. It has to be a conspiracy, but now the Germans are in on it too! I always knew Merkel was a lizard under that mask.
Some of the christian nuts are convinced that it's the end times and Jesus is about to pay us all a visit.
