This doesn’t mean that this virus isn’t bad news. It is. It is especially bad news if you live in a turd-world nation or a part of a nation that is turd world.

Iran has a problem with the virus near Qom. Big shock — not. Iran is full of squat toilets and Qom is a pilgrimage site so it is also full of people in close proximity. Oops.
