I agree with your assertion that Los Angeles will be where the end begins domestically. There, or another major port city. I believe that China will be where the worldwide outbreak starts. Their track record for suppressing the media, unethical living conditions, and complete lack of concern for how their actions affect the rest of the world. Just think of the implications, so much trade worldwide is done with China, not to mention, they would be the gateway to the rest of Asia, and even into Europe.
