Wuhan: Flu HQ and Lots More

Somewhere along the line, someone estimated that 10% of General Motors' product line was produced in Wuhan--which is also producing the very latest "coronavirus" flu.

But GM is hardly the Lone Ranger in Wuhan.

...Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, is one of China's largest industrial hubs and home to its steel industry. The $9.4 billion Chinese automotive company Dongfeng Motor Corp, which is joint venture partners with Nissan and Honda, resides in this city. 

Several suppliers and international business operations are based in Wuhan. For example, massive car factories for General Motors, Nissan, Honda, and other corporations are there. Wuhan is home to the business operations for international corporations like Renault SA, PSA Group's Peugeot, IBM, HSBC, Siemens, Walmart, Ericsson and more. The beverage company Anheuser-Busch InBev SA also brews beer in Wuhan....
The city is also home to Red China's biological-weapons research lab.

Thought you'd want to know that.

I heard that, and that is not a stretch to imagine somebody got careless with the petri dish. Mankind always pushes the limits sometimes for good and sometimes for ill. This one may kill incredible amounts of people. Let's hope not.

Yah, well, it could.

Remember SARS??? The Death-Star of viruses?

There were ZERO fatalities in the US from that one. We in the USA have a lot better health systems, better food QC, and far better sanitation systems--and we don't eat snakes, rats, bats, or baby mice.

We'll come through just fine.
