There are a few cases every year, I’m sure I read that there were a couple of cases in the US within the last fortnight or so but I can’t find the article now. Of course, Mongolia is close to China so this one will get loads of coverage.

Remember the ‘Summer of the Shark’ back in 2001. No increase in the amount of shark attacks but there was hysterical coverage up until the 9/11 attacks. It sold papers.

Flat Earth News by Nick Davies and Risk by Dan Gardner are worth reading to see how the news cycle and the inherent human misunderstanding of dangers can escalate what is probably a non-story into a BIG story.

Yes but if you believe the MSM didn't they have 30 new strains of Covid 19 three to four weeks ago.

Apparently the plague is now curable but if untreated leads to death, like every symptom of every illness if you search on Google.

The News:
£500 for every adult and £250 for every child in the UK in High St vouchers. Seems a better idea than paying out dole money as the furlough scheme winds down and job loses go up.

Not a single Oscar nomination for the cast of the animated masterpieces they starred in either.

2 were deceptive little *******s and one resorted to mindless thuggery. No attempt to understand a different culture, engage in dialogue about ownership of said bridge, discuss the benefits of a plant based diet or offer themselves for stud to domesticate the species and support any troll children and their possible offspring that may have subsequently starved to death
Troll lives matter ✊🏼

Yep there were 3 actually. Two were smarter than the unfriendly uneducated troll and one was brave. They all lived happily ever after.
