Walmart and Sams Club has a large number of stores in China. FOOD is the number 1 product that chinese people buy at these type of stores and much of it is imported into China from other countries, including the US. Food safety is the chicom people's biggest concern, they need safe and better food than they can produce in china. The chicom people are more interested in buying food than buying some shitty little plastic piece of crap gadget that gets used twice then tossed into the "junk drawer" for the next 10 years.
Thanks for the insight!

Based on this development, I went on amazon this morning looking at disposable surgical masks. Some are not available and many have delivery dates weeks in the future. I’m betting that current stocks are sold out already. The future delivery dates are when the suppliers are expecting new stock. If this virus is as serious as expected, I’m betting that most future inventory will either be ‘appropriated’ by the government or very quickly sold out. If you want some masks and gloves, better buy now as I think very soon nothing will be available.
The above link that Denton posted is very scary. Is the source of this article usually reliable? If so, time to top up preps and prepare to hunker in for an extended period to avoid contact.

For disinfecting items:
https://www.researchgate.net/profile...rradiation.pdf5 tablespoons of 6% bleach in 4 liters of water = 0.1% sodium hypochlorite solution.In consideration of the possible infectious role of SARS-CoV RNA, sodium hypochlorite 0.1% appear to be the more efficacious disinfectant for surfaces and hands potentially contaminated with respiratory viruses and SARS-CoV.
For disinfecting items that can't be wiped/rinsed in bleach (mail, N95 masks, maybe currency) then:Think I'm going to throw one of these in the cart on the next amazon order. https://www.amazon.com/Germicidal-Oz.../dp/B07KYTHWCS Not that I'm overly worried about 2019-nCoV, but wouldn't hurt to have one since UV light can kill many disease causing microbes.U.V. radiation, instead, damage nucleic acid because RNA adsorb UV radiation of germicidal wavelengths and is the major targets of the powerful antimicrobal effects of these type of electromagnetic radiation. In according to this, irradiation of UV for few minutes on the virus in culture medium resulted in the destruction of viral infectivity.
I still think the risk is pretty low for western countries but I did purchase masks some time ago for a situation like this. Should it become bad I have them down in my preps. Adult size for hubs and I and the child size for little man.
I haven't heard (and truth is, not sure how much you can depend on the info that China releases) of any younger healthy people passing from this virus. From what they are saying its the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions that can have a severe reaction to this virus. Hopefully it burns itself out pretty quick.
As far as the virus coming over on Chinese made products, I am not sure about this particular strain but SARS could only last up to 2 days on hard surfaces and in feces. I would assume this one is pretty similar so I doubt any virus particles would be able to survive the boat trip over here.

the Jakarta Pandemic is a great book that is well written and covers a pandemic..and how people react

Just checked amazon again. The masks that I purchased 2 hours ago are now no longer available. The run on these types of products is in full swing. I’m going to get some pool shock and bleach today.
