That's the French flag, silly. Russian's aren't original with their color schemes or having something unique about their flags. If you're going to have three lines as your flag - at least have it with some kind of symbol in it - like a nice maple leaf.
Not brand new. USA already made some research on it. In addition to that there are ways to control it but i agree that there is no 100% cure on it. Furthermore the virus currently ist not spreading around the globe. China obv is infected and like 5-10 infections in other countries. Its like Ebola 5 years ago where a few people were infected all over the world the virus was new too.
Its not completely new strain. At least its what newspaper said. Also the virus only has a 3-5% death rate. And everyone is just like 'OMG we are gonna die by corona flu. Oh NOO'. Everyone is hyping it and getting hysteric
