There is not one to my knowledge, and I don't think there's a particular need for one honestly. (Mostly because this will - eventually - be over.)

IMO, just find a social thread on CE or something and post in there - in fact, CE has a "general" topic of sorts on the matter:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/400-current-events/78465346

But I won't tell you what boards to make or not make. If you want to make a board dedicated to the coronavirus for whatever reason, you can opt to create it here if you have 500+ Karma:

Bro it might infect 70% of the country. That's millions of Americans dying. The NBA just suspended the season. This is a big f'ing deal and it's going to get way worse before it gets better.

Something that kills millions doesn't seem like something that warrants a board iyo?

Not particularly. This is a video gaming site. You're in the wrong place if you want to discuss current events, news, medicine, or pandemics, in my opinion. Especially when more active discussion could be happening on other sites.

But that's just my take on the matter. Considering we have boards for politics and current events anyways, the site obviously disagrees with me, but I'm just offering my take.

It's not about the killing people, as much as you seem to want to ask loaded questions. It's just the topic as a whole.

But as stated, if you feel it needs a board, feel free to make one via the link I provided earlier. It's not like it's going to make a difference to me either way - I just know the site isn't going to make one. (Not because of the subject matter, mind - that I say because the site just doesn't make specialized boards any more like they used to. Community boards serve that role now.)

Where is the Black Death board? Do we have a car accidents board? Board for other diseases?

Also, "millions" is a vastly overblown number:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

As of writing this, there have been 4634 deaths so far.

In all fairness, I think he's speaking in the hypothetical: if it keeps spreading like wildfire and maintaining present mortality rates (and straining healthcare infrastructures further), it's not entirely unreasonable that it could get so bad.

China both is the most populated country in the world and actively suppressed Dr. Li's warnings, yet only 3,169 people died, over three quarters of the affected people have recovered, and new cases are down to the low double digits (19 new cases on march 9th, 24 on march 10th, and 15 on march 11th). jonathanvswan's numbers are absurd fear-mongering, and you owe everyone in this topic an apology for supporting them.

Furthermore, this topic is not the place for discussing the coronavirus; you should take it to a more appropriate board, such as https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/400-current-events/ , as gamefaqs's medical/health board seems to be dead in the water.

EDIT: I should add that about 200,000 chinese die in a car accident each year, so cars are killing chinese faster than the coronavirus, and that's very unlikely to change.
