The Market Is About To Plunge (Day 2, Volume 2, Part 2)
In response to the nonsense being run by a few people, including regretfully, a columnist at my college newspaper, I offer this quote from Bloomberg news:
"Mexico, the first country known to be hit by the new H1N1 flu strain that has reached 11 nations, has about 35,000 samples waiting to be analyzed, said Dick Thompson, a spokesman at the World Health Organization. Those samples, which experts say hold the key to understanding the virus, are held in a guarded laboratory surrounded by walls, gates and guards, that is less than 4 miles from downtown Mexico City."
Oh, so, the WHO has said there's only a few cases, eh? They are, to quote a denier on my previous thread who said that the WHO has, "aggressively disavowed those death numbers and place the number of dead at 8 as of last night." Well what about that quote? How about those 35,000 samples? Explain that one for me? It will be interesting to see what the Mexican flu deniers say as the disease continues to spread.
This post is in response to comments off my previous thread here. While the market is going to tank regardless of the effects of the Mexican Flu, we're going to go down a lot faster when the quarantines and shutdowns across the country multiply.
