I don't think there is a snowball's chance
in hell that this virus can be contained. My
prediction is that you'll hear of cases in
several North American cities within the

(1) The vast majority of people recover.
(2) Some people seem not to be susceptible.
(3) This kind of disease tends to become
milder as it spreads.

All that said, get ready for the "flu" from
hell. Anyone want to set up a pool on the
date it is confirmed in different major
