You cannot wipe out any virus. It'll always find something/somebody without immunity to infect, or it will mutate.

Some viruses wipe themselves out, by wiping out their host populations. It doesn't pay to have a high fatality rate!

As for the "toilet paper frenzy". Have none of these people heard of washing their asses with water?

If the virus kills 'em, it kills 'em but at least they'll have a clean arse.

Of all the absurdities about this episode, panic buying of toilet paper is probably the silliest.

In most countries of the world, soft reusable newsprint is kept for the purpose of recycling. When I was in Africa, I noticed that shit houses were built next to "toilet paper trees" as I called them - large leaf about 5 inches by 12 inches in size

From this day forward I will not use regular toilet paper.In its stead I will splash water on the little pucker and wipe dry with one sheet of this trumpy paper, pucker to pucker.https://www.ebay.com/itm/283269168914 :woohoo:

The source of the outbreak was a rumor in HK and Singapore that paper production would be diverted to make surgical masks, so if you didn't stockpile toilet paper, pretty soon you would be on the left-hand protocol...
