    Just wants to promote his business - the cause of this whole mess. Corona virus has a high chance of killing you with the second infection with Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) - there are numerous independent reports from doctors in China that the second serotype infection of this corona virus has a very high death rate owing to ADE (like a second infection of Dengue Fever) ....... close borders, close schools, Chinese Communist Party has being lying all along.

    “It’s safe to fly” said the assistant director general association of Asia pac airlines. This while entire cities are quarantined and a cruise ships becoming floating Petri dishes. Pray tell how is being trapped in plane with someone sick ang better. The bias is strong

    So, the air filtration system on a plane is similar to an operating room. Really? Amazing how some people can lie with a straight face.

    “Director general of association of asia pacific airlines”....clearly no bias or self interest there when he says everyone should carry on flying as usual.
