Next time there's a killer virus in a town like Wuhan, would it be justified to use the nuclear option to prevent a pandemic and save?

Potentially millions of more lives

    Certainly a good idea!  After all, how much damage could a nuclear bomb cause the rest of the World?

    I assume you are an American as so many of them seem to think the answer to every problem is kill lots of people, never mind if they are innocent civillians.

    What is it 20 years the US has been at war in Afghanistan now? and you could not stop the very terrorists Trump signed an agreement with a couple of months ago going into a maternity hospital and murdering dozens of nurses, new mothers and their new born babies.

    And please don't talk about fake news as the Express is one of the most right wing news media outlets in the UK.

    You don't seem to understand that other countries have nuclear weapons too, and when they retaliate it will be far worse than any virus.

    Kill a few million to save a few hundred thousand?  Even a raging hardcore conservative might want to think about that before pressing any buttons.  The country where the virus-town is might take offence (for some silly reason) and shoot back, which then ups the body count.  Still seem like a good idea?

    And what if it should happen in your town?  Don't think it can't, just ask the folks in Norwalk CT.

    Once upon a time when the white man had a monopoly on the option he could think like that but today the yellow and brown man also have the option so you better draw up a plan B before you get blasted.

    If that doesn't spread the virus far and wide I don't know what would.

    Wuhan is a 'town' of approx 11 million people, a nuclear attack would cause a retaliation and mutual anhiallation.

    You’d have to eradicate the entire world population.. by the time something like Covid 19 was identified it had already travelled around the world. Unless you plan to push the button on anywhere as soon as 1 flu like symptom death occurs... like I said, the whole world, each and every day someone dies of something virus related. You’d have to hit them all to make sure that one isn’t something as nasty as the Covid-19.

    No. There's no way to guarantee that would eradicate all of the virus (there's evidence the virus was already in Italy by the time it was detected in Wuhan), and such a devastating action would only further destabilize the world economy in a crisis.
