      What if your next Expert Break-Down is something like a military engineer breaking down science-fiction designs for war-machines, like the battlemechs of the Battletech universe? Or Gundams?

      @CT- 370 They’re bringing back Measles not Smallpox. Smallpox was killing 15 million people a year just 10 years prior to its eradication when majority of world was already vaccinated. That would be quite a bigger catastrophe. Measles are currently killing “just” around 100 thousand people. We would notice pretty quickly if the death rate would grow 10 thousand times.

    Thankfully he would probably not yet have a reason to know this, but if a contagion were deadly enough, then it would not matter that the CDC has no armed force and martial law would not need to be declared, because the National Security Act of 1947 and subsequent legislation authorizes a little faction of the government to do whatever it thinks it would take to prevent catastrophe, including murdering a patient or even a doctor like himself. (Some political assassinations suspected by conspiracy theorists, even if true, would be legal.)

    He says they got it right by not decontaminating going in yet the girl said I’m skin and you head to toe to make sure you have nothing before you go in so clearly they got decontaminated

  • chris18228
    chris18228 Hari Yang lalu

    Well you might want to clean yourself off before you go into a contaminated room so you don’t contaminate it with other stuff so makes completely sense to me and probably should be done by the CDC

    Talking about outbreaks and the lack of panic. There was a time World of Warcraft created a video virus that nearly wiped out the entire game. It was amazing how the entire globe of people that play came together to solve it.
    The aftermath is studied by scientists and psychologist.

    In these movies often there is military involved and a real immediate threat for humankind. imo with utmost certainty human rights will be under fire in such a case.
    people will be forced to go places and maybe even killed to contain the threat and save humankind. At least i really hope so!
    dont want to go quarantene the zombies. just shootem!

    Ah you just have to love the so called "experts" of something that never happened yet , but hey , they know best right ? :) It s just like the cancer "experts" in medicine , nobody knows how our cells mutate to become cancerous in the first step , but hey , listen to them , poison yourself with their treatments , or expose yourself to deadly radiations , it ll help as they say :) Cancer treatments are like hunting for pigs in the forest on board of a plane and dropping napalm on the forest , sure you ll kill the pig , but the rest of the forest too :) So when i see those experts going to such extremes and still pretending they know best , i sure would not like a big dicease spread nowadays cause i can feel the same kind of scorched earth response to such a feat :)

    I think in ET the reason why they decontaminate on the way in is because they don’t know yet what ET’s tolerance for Earth germs might be, so they do it just in case.
