  1. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0820-9 "Since the first reports of novel pneumonia (COVID-19) in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, there has been considerable discussion on the origin of the causative virus, SARS-CoV-2 (also referred to as HCoV-19) ... Here we review what can be deduced about the origin of SARS-CoV-2 from comparative analysis of genomic data. We offer a perspective on the notable features of the SARS-CoV-2 genome and discuss scenarios by which they could have arisen. Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus." edit: sorry for the messed up formatting, posting/copypasting with my phone
  2. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misinformation_related_to_the_2019–20_coronavirus_pandemic Never read the entire thing through, and probably the information has changed since, but at least earlier there were many conspiracy theories with countries blaming each other of creating the virus, yet all the experts studying the virus said that it is naturally evolved...

  4. Mixed up the names ( edited it to "Should I be eating Burana (tradename for ibuprofen) as a precaution?", shows how much I know about medicine ), but anyway, the point was that people are eating painkillers before they even know if they're sick. Usually when I have the flu, I just drink water and take some vitamins.
  5. No shit? People are panic buying all the toilet paper, non-perishable food, painkillers, vitamins and nutritional supplements. My sister works at a hospital pharmacy and knows other pharmacists working at "normal" pharmacies. People are asking things like "Should I be eating Burana (tradename for ibuprofen) as a precaution?". I don't know anything about chemistry or medicines really, but even to me that sounds pretty stupid...
  6. Worldwide situation map: https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/685d0ace521648f8a5beeeee1b9125cd What hit me over the weekend was that even Reunion (a small island east of Madagascar) had 5 cases (now 9).
  7. I've wondered how effective the temperature screening actually is. Couldn't someone be infected and spreading the disease, but without any fever?
  8. Seems that the economical costs of this will be enormous. I read some analyst saying that most or all airlines will be bankrupt by end of May if this keeps going. Lots of employers are laying off people already, and might still go under.
  9. Yeah, EU is also planning on closing Schengen-area borders on Wednesday or Thursday and most countries have limited or stopped air travel completely. Apparently also in many countries anyone returning from another country is placed in a 2 week quarantine as a precaution.
  10. Finnish government announced that they plan to declare emergency law tomorrow. Public meetings above 10 people, loitering etc. are banned, schools and such are closed, borders will likely close soon and everyone with symptoms is expected to quarantine themselves for at least a week or two, and not go to a hospital unless they have severe symptoms like difficulty breathing to prevent healthcare collapse. Didn't the old Chinese curse go something along like "I hope you will live in interesting times"?
  11. Canada has another location I didn’t see on your list fyi - smartwheel.ca

  13. Thanks for the heads up, so it needs to be the 7205 to charge the KS 16X (20S = 84V battery pack). Edited my post above.
  14. On a quick glance at the Cycle Satiator page, it says: The wheel battery only has DC plus and "minus" (ground), there's no temperature sensing, so just solder the + and ground. Take care to check that the polarity is the right way around. Double check that, I don't have a wheel with the Lenovo-plug, but just because Lenovo has decided that one part of the connector is "-" and one part is "+" doesn't mean other manufacturers using the plug actually follow their scheme (although probably they do). Someone with knowledge of the wheel Lenovo-connector polarity can probably confirm it (like @Seba perhaps?). EDIT: After @z3n's clarification about the Cycle Satiator maximum voltages below, do check that your model is the 7205. The other models can't reach high enough voltage (84V / 20S battery packs) to charge your wheel.
