(Also, tbh, not the Matrix for me, but Alice Through the Looking Glass.)

I thought it was more about preventing people with symptoms from potentially spreading their illness.

Either way people are buying that **** up. If you can sell magnetic bracelets that are supposed to improve your balance you can certainly sell face masks during a potential pandemic.

I tend to doubt such a sign is really necessary at BK

There's two Chinese restaurants within a block so you'd be surprised.

If you hung that sign in the Chinese places people would just interpret it as a statement on the contents of the meat.

might just become a new seasonal virus like the cold and flu

the reason it won't be contained is actually because it's not deadly enough I keep reading

Yesterday my throat started hurting and now it's two AM and I'm awake and my throat hurts like hell. Hope I don't have it. There was a case in the town next to where I live so it wouldn't be too outlandish to think that I have it but of course it could be a normal cold or flu.
It's especially annoying since I'm on a business trip in Bavaria since yesterday, interacting with lots of people.
Staying in a hotel right now. We weren't able to finish our work yesterday so I wanted to continue today but it looks like I'll try to go to a doctor in this town. Hope I won't be too sick to drive home, it's a three hour drive. Damn, I was looking forward to a chill weekend.
