Bill Gates Admits Vaccines Are Used for Human Depopulation

Death by Vaccination: The Gates Foundation and the New Eugenics – By Gary Null & Richard Gale

Richard Gale is the Executive Producer of the Progressive Radio Network and a former Senior Research Analyst in the biotech and genomic industries. Dr. Gary Null is the host of the nation’s longest running public radio program on nutrition and natural health and a multi-award-winning director of progressive documentary films

****************************************************************************************************

‘While lecturing at the elitist TED 2010 conference in Long Beach, CA,  Bill Gates slipped a statement while speaking on the dangers of climate change and over population: “Vaccines? I love them.”

Today the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is “the most powerful charity in the world, and one of the most quietly influential international organizations of any sort.”[1] The Foundation is funded to the tune of  $34.6 billion plus an additional $30 billion from Warren Buffet’s investments. This is almost the entire budget of the World Health Organization (WHO) …

In 2000, the Gates Foundation founded the International Finance Facility for Immunization (GAVI) and that organization’s Global Fund for Children’s Vaccines. GAVI is a global collaboration that includes governments, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Bank, WHO, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, UNICEF, vaccine makers, and other influential entities. All of these are zealot vaccination promoters …

We appear, therefore, to be faced with a serious uncertainty over the public image of the very likable, mild-manner Bill Gates, who expresses repeatedly his ambition to improve the health of the developing world, and then the possibility of other ulterior motives that are contrary to saving lives. Should we take Gates and his Foundation’s word that their primary objective is to improve the health and well-being of children in poorer nations by fighting disease and illness with vaccines? Or is his vaccine agenda another ruse with a more sinister agenda? For example, it is hard to imagine that Gates is unaware that his commitment to the Green Revolution is in point of fact a Green Disaster and that no GMO has lived up to its promise. Yet he simply continues his enormous funding of agricultural genetic manipulation projects. Therefore, we believe there is sound reason that his Foundation’s many international vaccine initiatives represent much more than excessively kind-hearted charity …

In his deconstruction of Bill Gates’ charitable agenda, F. William Engdahl writes, “Vaccinating a child who then goes to drink feces-polluted river water is hardly healthy in any respect. But of course cleaning up the water and sewage systems of Africa would revolutionize the health conditions of the Continent.”[9]  Far more effective would be the Foundation donating its billions to improve sanitation and hygiene, and provide nutrition to the 2.6 billion people who have none, for increasing clean water sources so 900 million global residents can have access to drinkable water (now at 1 in 3 Africans). Instead, the Foundation could be funding thousands of health clinics focusing on the chronic illnesses these populations suffer from most.[10]  This is simply common sense. “Bad water,” says the Stockholm International Water Institute’s director, Anders Bentell, “kills more people than HIV, malaria and war together.” Spending billions of dollars to develop new vaccines and launch monumental efforts to vaccinate  African children plagued with diverse infectious illnesses promises to be a fruitless enterprise while these populations continue to live in squalor …

As a keynote speaker at the TED 2010 conference, Gates laid out his rationale for an international effort towards global depopulation.  He said, “If we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that [projected to 9 billion people by 2050] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.“  New vaccines for depopulation? …

As early as 1968, the Rockefeller Foundation’s annual report recommended anti-fertility vaccines as a viable means for lessening the human population growth rate that should be aggressively pursued …

An early anti-fertility trial using human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a hormone essential for pregnancy, in vaccines was completed in 1988 in India through a Rockefeller collaboration with India’s National Institute of Immunology. The Rockefeller annual report declared success. Yet according to Betsy Hartman, Director of Hampshire College’s Population and Development Program, “although one vaccine has been tested on only 180 women in India, it is being billed there as safe, devoid of any side effects and completely reversible.” …

Perhaps the most thorough documented investigation into the covert use of anti-fertility vaccines is a 1995 report, “Are New Vaccines Laced with Birth Control Drugs,” compiled by J.A. Miller, a correspondent for the pro-life missionary movement Human Life International. In the early 1990s, the WHO, supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Bank, the UN Development Programme, and the US’s National Institutes of Health undertook stealth anti-fertility initiatives under the disguise of tetanus vaccination programs. These vaccines were administered to unsuspecting and poor communities in Mexico, Nicaragua and the Philippines …

A 1995 BBC documentary, “The Human Laboratory,” interviewed Filipino women’s activist Mary Pilar Verzosa, who reported on the vaccine’s adverse effects. These included fertility cycles that were “all fouled up,” spontaneous bleeding and miscarriages.[20] Seemingly, women were not screened to determine whether or not they were pregnant before injections. Consequently in addition to interfering with a woman’s ability to become pregnant the WHO was launching a clandestine experiment to observe whether the vaccine would trigger miscarriages …

Bill Gates’ mission to protect poorer populations from disease through mass vaccination, his sense of urgency that the global population is too large and needs to be reduced, and his deep financial and collaborative enterprises with the oligarchic elite, health agencies and multilateral organizations with a past history of eugenic intentions and experimentation, make for a bizarre mix that raises serious questions about the truth behind his Foundation’s motives.

America has a long history of eugenic science through the first half of the twentieth century–John D. Rockefeller, Margaret Sanger, Paul Popenoe, Madison Grant and others. The names of the organizations and facilities they founded or supported tells the story. Andrew Carnegie’s Institute was the primary funder of the Eugenics Record Office that operated from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories. The Laboratory was closed in 1944 after the public became aware of thousands sterilizations it oversaw …

So what are the lessons to be learned from this? The wealthiest elite on the planet are rarely questioned about the correctness of their actions and schemes. As long as one of these individuals say they are giving huge sums of money to a cause to end disease and suffering, we are not suppose to probe further. Rather, in the case of mainstream media, such people are to be worshiped as saviors. The oligarchic elite are so well interconnected on multiple boards of directors, clubs for the rich and powerful, think tanks, and among the high ranks of elected legislators and politicians that it is difficult to have an open and honest debate on the merits of their actions and spending. When a Ted Turner says we should reduce the world’s population by more than half, and Bill Gates suggests a 15 percent reduction, do we really understand they are following a form of eugenic genocide?’

Rockefeller Anti-Fertility Vaccines Exposed

Jurriaan Maessen ExplosiveReports.Com June 9, 2012 https://explosivereports.wordpress.com/2012/06/09/rockefeller-anti-fertility-vaccines-exposed/

In the course of August and September 2010, I wrote several articles for Infowars on the Rockefeller Foundation’s admitted funding and developing of anti-fertility vaccines intended for “mass-scale distribution.” As the soft-kill depopulation agenda accelerates it seems all the more relevant to re-post these articles as one.

1- Rockefeller Foundation Developed Vaccines For “Mass-Scale” Fertility Reduction

In its 1968 yearly report, the Rockefeller Foundation acknowledged funding the development of so-called “anti-fertility vaccines” and their implementation on a mass-scale. From page 51 onward we read:

“(…) several types of drugs are known to diminish male fertility, but those that have been tested have serious problems of toxicity. Very little work is in progress on immunological methods, such as vaccines, to reduce fertility, and much more research is required if a solution is to be found here.”

The possibility of using vaccines to reduce male fertility was something that needed to be investigated further, according to the Rockefeller Foundation, because both the oral pill and the IUD were not suitable for mass-scale distribution:

“We are faced with the danger that within a few years these two “modern” methods, for which such high hopes have been held, will in fact turn out to be impracticable on a mass scale.”

“A semipermanent or renewable subcutaneous implant of these hormones has been suggested, but whether or not the same difficulties would result has not been determined.”

Saying that research thus-far had been too low-grade to produce any substantial results, the report was adamant:

“The Foundation will endeavour to assist in filling this important gap in several ways:

1- “Seeking out or encouraging the development of, and providing partial support to, a few centres of excellence in universities and research institutions in the United States and abroad in which the methods and points of view of molecular biology are teamed with the more traditional approaches of histology, embryology,and endocrinology in research pertinent to development of fertility control methods;”

2- “Supporting research of individual investigators, oriented toward development of contraceptive methods or of basic information on human reproduction relevant to such developments;”

3- “Encouraging, by making research funds available, as well as by other means, established and beginning investigators to turn their attention to aspects of research in reproductive biology that have implications for human fertility and its control;”

4- “Encouraging more biology and biochemistry students to elect careers in reproductive biology and human fertility control, through support of research and teaching programs in departments of zoology, biology, and biochemistry.”

The list goes on and on. Motivation for these activities, according to the RF?

“There are an estimated five million women among America’s poverty and near-poverty groups who need birth control service (…). The unchecked fertility of the indigent does much to perpetuate poverty, undereducation, and underemployment, not only in urban slums, but also in depressed rural areas.”

It wasn’t long before all the Foundation’s efforts began to have effect. In its annual report of 1988, The RF was happy to report the progress made by the Foundation’s Population Division in the field of anti-fertility vaccines:

“India’s National Institute of Immunology successfully completed in 1988 the first phase of trials with three versions of an anti-fertility vaccine for women. Sponsored by the government of India and supported by the Foundation, the trials established that with each of the tested vaccines, at least one year of protection against pregnancy could be expected, based on the levels of antibodies formed in response to the immunization schedule.”

In its 1997 review of anti-fertility vaccines, Indian based International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology didn’t forget to acknowledge its main benefactor:

“The work on LHRH and HCG vaccines was supported by research grants of The Rockefeller Foundation, (…).”

In the 1990s the work on anti-fertility vaccines went in overdrive, especially in third-world nations, as did the funding provided by the deep pockets of the Rockefeller Foundation. At the same time, the target-population of the globalists- women- began to stir uncomfortably with all this out-in-the-open talk of population reduction and vaccines as a means to achieve it.

Betsy Hartman, Director of the Population and Development Program at Hampshire College, Massachusetts and “someone who believes strongly in women’s right to safe, voluntary birth control and abortion”, is no supporter of the anti-fertility vaccine, as brought into being by the Rockefeller Foundation. She explains in her essay Population control in the new world order:

“Although one vaccine has been tested on only 180 women in India, it is being billed there as ‘safe, devoid of any side effects and completely reversible’. The scientific community knows very well that such assertions are false – for instance, many questions still remain about the vaccine’s long-term impact on the immune system and menstrual cycle. There is also evidence on film of women being denied information about the vaccine in clinical trials. Nevertheless, the vaccine is being prepared for large-scale use.”

The Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, quoted “a leading contraceptive researcher as saying:

“Immunological birth control methods will be an ‘antigenic weapon’ against the reproductive process, which left unchecked, threatens to swamp the world.”

Animal rights activist ms. Sonya Ghosh also expressed concerns about the Rockefeller-funded anti-fertility vaccine and its implementation:

“Instead of giving individual women more options to prevent pregnancy and protect against AIDs and sexually transmitted diseases, the anti fertility vaccine is designed to be easily administered to large numbers of women using the least resources. If administered to illiterate populations the issues of user control and informed consent are further cause for concern.”

To avoid such debates, the Foundation has in the last couple of decades consorted to its long-practised and highly successful methods of either outright lying through its teeth or using deceptive language to hide the fact that it continues to work tirelessly toward its long-stated mission.

2- Global Distribution of Rockefeller-Funded Anti-Fertility Vaccine Coordinated by WHO

In addition to the recent PrisonPlanet-exclusive Rockefeller Foundation Developed Vaccines For “Mass-Scale” Fertility Reduction– which outlines the Rockefeller Foundation’s efforts in the 1960s funding research into so-called “anti-fertility vaccines”- another series of documents has surfaced, proving beyond any doubt that the UN Population Fund, World Bank and World Health Organization picked up on it, further developing it under responsibility of a “Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation”.

Just four years after the Rockefeller Foundation launched massive funding-operations into anti-fertility vaccines, the Task Force was created under auspices of the World Health Organization, World Bank and UN Population Fund. Its mission, according to one of its members, to support:

“basic and clinical research on the development of birth control vaccines directed against the gametes or the preimplantation embryo. These studies have involved the use of advanced procedures in peptide chemistry, hybridoma technology and molecular genetics as well as the evaluation of a number of novel approaches in general vaccinology. As a result of this international, collaborative effort, a prototype anti-HCG vaccine is now undergoing clinical testing, raising the prospect that a totally new family planning method may be available before the end of the current decade.”

In regards to the scope of the Task Force’s jurisdiction, the Biotechnology and Development Monitor reported:

“The Task Force acts as a global coordinating body for anti-fertility vaccine R&D in the various working groups and supports research on different approaches, such as anti-sperm and anti-ovum vaccines and vaccines designed to neutralize the biological functions of hCG. The Task Force has succeeded in developing a prototype of an anti-hCG-vaccine.”

One of the Task Force members, P.D. Griffin, outlined the purpose and trajectory of these Fertility Regulating Vaccines. Griffin:

“The Task Force has continued to coordinate its research activities with other vaccine development programmes within WHO and with other international and national programmes engaged in the development of fertility regulating vaccines.”

Griffin also admitted to the fact that one of the purposes of the vaccines is the implementation in developing countries. Griffin:

“If vaccines could be developed which could safely and effectively inhibit fertility, without producing unacceptable side effects, they would be an attractive addition to the present armamentarium of fertility regulating methods and would be likely to have a significant impact on family planning programmes.”

Also, one of the advantages of the FRVs over “currently available methods of fertility regulation” the Task Force states, is the following (179):

“low manufacturing cost and ease of delivery within existing health services.”

Already in 1978, the WHO’s Task Force (then called Task Force on Immunological Methods for Fertility Regulation) underlined the usefulness of these vaccines in regards to the possibility of “large scale synthesis and manufacture” of the vaccine:

“The potential advantages of an immunological approach to fertility regulation can be summarized as follows: (a) the possibility of infrequent administration, possibly by paramedical personnel; (b) the use of antigens or antigen fragments, which are not pharmacologically active; and (c) in the case of antigens of known chemical structure, there is the possibility of large-scale synthesis and manufacture of vaccine at relatively low cost.”

In 1976, the WHO Expanded Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction published a report, stating:

“In 1972 the Organization (…) expanded its programme of research in human reproduction to provide an international focus for an intensified effort to improve existing methods of fertility regulation, to develop new methods and to assist national authorities in devising the best ways of providing them on a continuing basis. The programme is closely integrated with other WHO research on the delivery of family planning care by health services, which in turn feeds into WHO’s technical assistance programme to governments at the service level.”

Although the term “Anti-Fertility Vaccine”, coined by the Rockefeller Foundation, was replaced by the more bureaucratic sounding “Fertility Regulating Vaccine (FRV), the programme was obviously the same. Besides, the time-line shows conclusively that the WHO, UN Population Fund and World Bank continued on a path outlined by the Rockefellers in the late 1960s. By extension, it proves that all these organization are perfectly interlocked, best captured under the header “Scientific Dictatorship”. The relationship between the WHO and the Rockefeller Foundation is intense. In the 1986 bulletin of the World Health Organization, this relationship is being described in some detail. While researching the effectiveness of “gossypol” as an “antifertility agent”, the bulletin states:

“The Rockefeller Foundation has supported limited clinical trials in China and smallscale clinical studies in Brazil and Austria. The dose administered in the current Chinese trial has been reduced from 20 mg to 10-15 mg/day during the loading phase in order to see if severe oligospermia rather than consistent azoospermia would be adequate for an acceptable, non-toxic and reversible effect. Meanwhile, both the WHO human reproduction programme and the Rockefeller Foundation are supporting animal studies to better define the mechanism of action of gossypol.”

In August of 1992, a series of meetings was held in Geneva, Switzerland, regarding “fertility regulating vaccines”. According to the document Fertility Regulating Vaccines (classified by the WHO with a limited distribution) present at those meetings were scientists and clinicians from all over the globe, including then biomedical researcher of the American Agency for International development, and current research-chief of USAID, Mr. Jeff Spieler.

In 1986 Mr. Spieler declared:

“A new approach to fertility regulation is the development of vaccines directed against human substances required for reproduction. Potential candidates for immunological interference include reproductive hormones, ovum and sperm antigens, and antigens derived from embryonic or fetal tissue.(…). An antifertility vaccine must be capable of safely and effectively inhibiting a human substance, which would need somehow to be rendered antigenic. A fertility-regulating vaccine, moreover, would have to produce and sustain effective immunity in at least 95% of the vaccinated population, a level of protection rarely achieved even with the most successful viral and bacterial vaccines. But while these challenges looked insuperable just a few years ago, recent advances in biotechnology- particularly in the fields of molecular biology, genetic engineering and monoclonal antibody production- are bringing antifertility vaccines into the realm of the feasible.”

“Vaccines interfering with sperm function and fertilization could be available for human testing by the early 1990s”, Spieler wrote.

In order for widespread use of these vaccines, Spieler writes, the vaccine must conquer “variations in individual responses to immunization with fertility-regulating vaccines”.

“Research”, he goes on to say,”is also needed in the field of “basic vaccinology”, to find the best carrier proteins, adjuvants, vehicles and delivery systems.”

In the 1992 document, the problem of “variations in individual responses” is also discussed:

“Because of the genetic diversity of human populations”, states the document, “immune responses to vaccines often show marked differences from one individual to another in terms of magnitude and duration. These differences may be partly or even completely overcome with appropriately engineered FRVs (Fertility Regulating Vaccines) and by improvements in our understanding of what is required to develop and control the immune response elicited by different vaccines.”

The picture emerging from these facts is clear. The WHO, as a global coordinating body, has since the early 1970s continued the development of the Rockefeller-funded “anti-fertility vaccine”. What also is becoming clear, is that extensive research has been done to the delivery systems in which these anti-fertility components can be buried, such as regular anti-viral vaccines. It’s a mass-scale anti-fertilization programme with the aim of reducing the world’s population: a dream long cherished by the global elite.

3- On Top of Vaccines, Rockefeller Foundation Presents Anti-Fertility Substance Gossypol for “Widespread Use”

It seems there is no limit to the Rockefeller Foundation’s ambitions to introduce anti-fertility compounds into either existing “health-services”, such as vaccines, or- as appears to be the case now- average consumer-products.

The 1985 Rockefeller Foundation’s annual report underlined its ongoing dedication towards finding good use for the anti-fertility substance “gossypol”, or C30H30O8 – as the description reads.

Indeed, gossypol, a toxic polyphenol derived from the cotton plant, was identified early on in the Foundation’s research as an effective sterilant. The question was, how to implement or integrate the toxic substance into crops.

“Another long-term interest of the Foundation has been gossypol, a compound that has been shown to have an antifertility effect in men, By the end of 1985, the Foundation had made grants totaling approximately $1.6 million in an effort to support and stimulate scientific investigations on the safety and efficacy of gossypol.”

In the 1986 Rockefeller Foundation annual report, the organization admits funding research into the use of fertility-reducing compounds in relation to food for “widespread use”:

“Male contraceptive studies are focused on gossypol, a natural substance extracted from the cotton plant, and identified by Chinese researchers as having an anti-fertility effect on men. Before widespread use can be recommended, further investigation is needed to see if lowering the dosage can eliminate undesirable side-effects without reducing its effectiveness as a contraceptive. The Foundation supported research on gossypol’s safety, reversibility and efficacy in seven different 1986 grants.”

In the RF’s 1988 annual report, gossypol as a contraceptive was also elaborated upon (page 22):

“Gossypol, a natural substance found in the cotton plant, continues to show promise as an oral contraceptive for men. Because it suppresses sperm production without affecting sex hormone levels, it is unique among the experimental approaches to fertility control in men. Foundation-funded scientists worldwide have assembled an aray of information about how gossypol works, and studies continue on a wide variety of its clinical applications. Dose reduction is being investigated to reduce health risks associated with the use of gossypol.”

The following year, according to the annual report, funds were allocated to several research institutions to see how this “dose reduction” could best be accomplished without interfering with the ant-fertility effects of gossypol.

(1988- $ 400,000, in addition to remaining funds from prior year appropriations) To support research on gossypol, its safety, reversibility, and efficacy as a contraceptive for use by men (…).”

Mention is made on money allocated to the University of Texas, “for a study of gossypol’s effects on DNA replication (…).”

The last mention of gossypol in the Foundation’s annals we find in the 1994 annual report, where funds were appropriated to the University of Innsbruck of Austria “for a study at the Institute of Physiology on the molecular action of gossypol at the cellular level.”

It seems that the funded scientists have indeed found a way of “lowering the dosage” of gossypol, circumventing the toxicity of the substance, so as to suppress or even eliminate these “undesirable side-effects”, which include: low blood potassium levels, fatigue, muscle weakness and even paralysis. If these effects could be eliminated without reducing the anti-fertility effects, the Foundation figured, it would be a highly effective and almost undetectable sterilant.

Although overtly, research into and development of gossypol as an anti-fertility compound was abandoned in the late 1990s, the cottonseed containing the substance was especially selected for mass distribution in the beginning of the current decade. Around 2006 a media-campaign was launched, saying the cottonseed could help defeat hunger and poverty.

In 2006, NatureNews reported that RNA interference (or RNAi) was the way to go. On the one hand it would “cut the gossypol content in cottonseeds by 98%, while leaving the chemical defenses of the rest of the plant intact.” Furthermore, the article quoted Dr. Deborah P. Delmer, the Rockefeller Foundation’s associate director of food security, who was quick to bury any concern:

“Deborah Delmer, associate director of the Rockefeller Foundation in New York City and an expert in agricultural food safety, points out that a benefit of using RNAi technology is that it turns off a gene process rather than switching on a novel function. “So instead of introducing a new foreign protein, you’re just shutting down one process,” Delmer says. “In that sense, I think that the safety concerns should be far less than other GM technologies.”

A 2006, National Geographic article Toxin-Free Cottonseed Engineered; Could Feed Millions Study Says, quotes the director of the Laboratory for Crop Transformation (Texas A&M Universtity), Keerti Singh Rathore as saying:

“A gossypol-free cottonseed would significantly contribute to human nutrition and health, particularly in developing countries, and help meet the requirements of the predicted 50 percent increase in the world population in the next 50 years.”

“Rathore’s study”, states the article, “represents the first substantiated case where gossypol was reduced via genetic engineering that targets the genes that make the toxin.”

I bring into recollection the statement made by the Rockefeller Foundation in its 1986 annual report, which reads:

“Before widespread use can be recommended, further investigation is needed to see if lowering the dosage can eliminate undesirable side-effects without reducing its effectiveness as a contraceptive.”

In the 1997 Foundational report, Rathore is mentioned (page 68). A postdoctoral fellowship-grant was given to a certain E. Chandrakanth “for advanced study in plant molecular biology under the direction of Keerti S. Rathore, Laboratory for Crop Transformation, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.”

Compromising connections, in other words, for someone who claimed academic objectivity in regards to gossypol and its sterilizing effects. Rathore explained the workings of RNAi in a 2006 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

“Cottonseed toxicity due to gossypol is a long-standing problem”, Rathore said, “and people have tried to fix it but haven’t been able to through traditional plant breeding. My area of research is plant transgenics, so I thought about using some molecular approaches to address this problem.”

Rathore also mentioned the desired main funder of his work without actually saying the name:

“we are trying to find some partners and will probably be looking at charitable foundations to help us out in terms of doing all kinds of testing that is required before a genetically engineered plant is approved for food or feed. We are in the very early stages and have a lot of ideas in mind, but we need to pursue those. Hopefully, we can find some sort of partnership that will allow us to do them.”

He also expressed the final adaptation of the cottonseed for widespread use is something of the long term:

“(…) right now there are many hurdles when you are dealing with a genetically modified plant. But I think in the next 15 or 20 years a lot of these regulations that we have to satisfy will be eliminated or reduced substantially.”

The Foundation, as is evident from the statements of Rockefeller’s own Deborah Delmer, is more than interested. Even worse, through the process of readying gossypol for mass-distribution in food, the fulfillment of their longstanding goal of sterilizing the populous into oblivion comes into view.

4- Rockefeller Foundation Conceptualized “Anti-Hormone” Vaccine in the 1920s and 30s, Reports Reveal

Rockefeller Foundation minion Max Mason, who acted as president in the mid-1930s, on multiple occasions expressed his master’s desire for an “anti-hormone” that would reduce fertility worldwide. Now keep in mind, this is more than 35 years before the Foundation actually mentioned funding “anti-fertility vaccines” in subsequent annual reports from 1969 onward.

Having traveled far beyond the realm of rumor and speculation, research into the admitted funding of anti-fertility vaccines has uncovered more and more sinister revelations along the way.

By the mid-1930s, Mason of the Rockefeller Foundation thought that “the ultimate solution of the problem [of birth control] may well lie in the studies of endocrinology, particularly antihormones.” The Foundation’s 1934 annual report states:

“The Rockefeller Foundation has decided to concentrate its present effort in the natural sciences on the field of modern experimental biology, with special interest in such topics as endocrinology, nutrition, genetics, embryology, problems centering about the reproductive process, psychobiology, general and cellular physiology, biophysics, and biochemistry.”

“(…) research work is being conducted on the physiology of reproduction in the monkey. This work was begun at the Johns Hopkins University in 1921, and since 1923 has been continued at the University of Rochester. It involves observational and experimental studies of the reproductive cycle in certain species of the higher primates, in which this cycle closely resembles that of the human species. The effect of the various interrelated reproductive hormones is being studied.”

In the annual report of the previous year (1933), the Foundation stresses the fact that work on the reproductive hormones of primates serves to experiment on man in the future:

“(…) much work has been done in the formulation and solution of basic problems in the general biology and physiology of sex in organisms other than man. It was essential that this fundamental work on infra-man pave the way for that on man.”

In the book Discipling Reproduction by Adele E. Clarke, the roots of Rockefeller-funded “anti-hormones” is being described in some detail, pointing out that the family’s ambitions to control man’s fertility date back even further than the 1930s. Clarke writes:

“On a cold morning in 1921, George Washington Corner, a physician and fledgling reproductive scientist, awoke in Baltimore to discover that it was snowing.”

“By 1929”, Clarke writes a bit further on, “Corner had mapped out the hormonal action of progesterone, an essential actor in the menstrual cycle and subsequently an actor in birth control pills.”

The 1935 Rockefeller Foundation annual report acknowledges funding Dr. Corner’s research:

“To the University of Rochester, for research on the physiology of reproduction under the direction of Dr. G. W. Corner during the threeyear period beginning July 1, 1935, and ending June 30, 1938, there has been appropriated the sum of $9,900. Dr. Corner’s activities are concentrated on a study of the oestrus cycle, using monkeys as the experimental animals. A colony of about thirty monkeys has been maintained, and experiments have furnished information on the normal histology of the reproductive cycle, the time of ovulation, the relation of ovulation to menstruation and other anatomically detectable correlations of the oestrus cycle. Work is continuing on two main lines: normal sex reproduction in the monkey, including the histology of ovary and uterus, and, secondly, the effects of the ovarian hormone.”

Again, never forget that the Foundation in 1933 stated outright that “It was essential that this fundamental work on infra-man pave the way for that on man.”

Another essential problem which arises, of course, is how exactly the funding-mechanism worked by which Corner’s research could be made ready for mass-consumption. Clarke mentions that officially the National Research Council, an arm of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), was the institute responsible for the task of doing so. More specific: the Committee for Research in Problems of Sex (CRPS):

“The NRC itself was founded in 1916 as an agency to inventory research toward enhanced military preparedness.”

“The NRC”, states the author, “was a prestigious organization from its inception, thanks to its early association with the NAS, the Carnegie Corporation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. Kohler (1991:109) has argued that the NRC essentially served as an intermediary between the foundations and scientists in the interwar years.(…). The NRC/CRPS itself was funded almost exclusively by Rockefeller monies, initially through the Bureau of Social Hygiene and, after 1931, through the Rockefeller Foundation.”

On the subject of so-called “current immunological contraceptive research”, Clarke channels Rockefeller-president Max Mason:

“Other lines of current immunological contraceptive research continue to seek what, during the 1930s, Max Mason of the Rockefeller Foundation called “anti-hormones”: vaccines to block hormones needed for very early pregnancy and a vaccine to block the hormone needed for the surface of the egg to function properly.”

In a February 1934 “progress report” written by Warren Weaver (director of the Natural Sciences Division of the Rockefeller Foundation) once again underlined the endgame:

“Can man gain an intelligent control of his own power? Can we develop so sound and extensive a genetics that we can hope to breed, in the future, superior men? Can we obtain enough knowledge of physiology and psychobiology of sex so that man can bring this pervasive, highly important, and dangerous aspect of life under rational control?”

The same Warren Weaver wrote a “biographical Memoir” in honor of his friend Max Mason, revealing some more interesting facts. Weaver, who describes himself as a great personal friend of Mason, gives a general description of him as Rockefeller-minion:

“He had by that time developed a consuming interest in behavioral research, and particularly in the possibility that the physical sciences, working with and through the biological sciences, could shed new and revealing light on the normal and abnormal behavior of individuals, and ultimately on the social behavior of groups of men.”

Here we have it. The blueprint for sterilizing vaccines has been first conceptualized way back in the 1920s and 1930s by social scientists of the Rockefeller Foundation. Although later the eugenic language (“anti-fertility vaccine”) was polished up with the help of some linguistic plastic surgery producing the term “immunological contraceptive”, the ultimate goal remains the same.

Study Shows Vaccines Cause Infant Deaths

“Nations that require more vaccine doses tend to have higher infant mortality rates [IMR]. The US childhood immunization schedule requires 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year – the most in the world – yet 33 [out of 34] nations have better IMRs.”
~~  From a study linking vaccines to infant deaths on the National Institutes of Health website

A vaccine study posted on the website of the NIH (U.S. National Institutes of Health) under the National Library of Medicine shows a strong correlation across the 34 countries evaluated between the number of vaccines given to infants and the rate of infant deaths, or in scientific lingo “infant mortality rate” [IMR]. The abstract, conclusion and two key graphs from this study are posted below.

Common sense would tell us that an infant’s immune system is not well developed and that the 26 vaccines scheduled for infants by the age of one year in the U.S. could easily overtax the coping mechanisms of many infants. Now the data from this study confirms that those countries which give only 12 to 14 vaccines to infants have much lower infant death rates (by as much as 50% or more) than the U.S. and other countries with higher numbers of vaccinations.

Remember that huge pharmaceuticals which focus on maximizing shareholder value above all else make billions of dollars on these vaccines. They do everything they can to hide information like this to protect their huge profits. Dozens of major media articles have shown the serious dangers of vaccines, yet the media largely parrots the views of its largest advertisers, including big pharma. Educate yourself and don’t fall for all of the media and government hype. By being well informed and taking action, we can protect the health of our children and future generations.

Abstract

The infant mortality rate (IMR) is one of the most important indicators of the socio-economic well-being and public health conditions of a country. The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year – the most in the world – yet 33 [out of 34] nations have lower IMRs. Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of r = 0.70 (p < 0.0001) was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. Nations were also grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges: 12-14, 15-17, 18-20, 21-23, and 24-26. The mean IMRs of all nations within each group were then calculated. Linear regression analysis of unweighted mean IMRs showed a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009). Using the Tukey-Kramer test, statistically significant differences in mean IMRs were found between nations giving 12-14 vaccine doses and those giving 21-23, and 24-26 doses. A closer inspection of correlations between vaccine doses, biochemical or synergistic toxicity, and IMRs is essential.

The postneonatal SIDS rate appears to have declined from 61.6 deaths (per 100,000 live births) in 1999 to 50.9 in 2001. However, during this period there was a significant increase in postneonatal deaths attributed to suffocation in bed and due to unknown causes. When these sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUIDs) are combined with SIDS deaths, the total SIDS rate remains relatively stable, resulting in a non-significant decline. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3170075/

Is there evidence linking SIDS to vaccines?

Although some studies were unable to find correlations between SIDS and vaccines, there is some evidence that a subset of infants may be more susceptible to SIDS shortly after being vaccinated. For example, Torch found that two-thirds of babies who had died from SIDS had been vaccinated against DPT (diphtheria–pertussis–tetanus toxoid) prior to death. Of these, 6.5% died within 12 hours of vaccination; 13% within 24 hours; 26% within 3 days; and 37%, 61%, and 70% within 1, 2, and 3 weeks, respectively. Torch also found that unvaccinated babies who died of SIDS did so most often in the fall or winter while vaccinated babies died most often at 2 and 4 months—the same ages when initial doses of DPT were given to infants. He concluded that DPT “may be a generally unrecognized major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunization may outweigh its potential benefits. A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study.” Walker et al. found “the SIDS mortality rate in the period zero to three days following DPT to be 7.3 times that in the period beginning 30 days after immunization.” Fine and Chen reported that babies died at a rate nearly eight times greater than normal within 3 days after getting a DPT vaccination.

Ottaviani et al. documented the case of a 3-month-old infant who died suddenly and unexpectedly shortly after being given six vaccines in a single shot: “Examination of the brainstem on serial sections revealed bilateral hypoplasia of the arcuate nucleus. The cardiac conduction system presented persistent fetal dispersion and resorptive degeneration. This case offers a unique insight into the possible role of hexavalent vaccine in triggering a lethal outcome in a vulnerable baby.” Without a full necropsy study in the case of sudden, unexpected infant death, at least some cases linked to vaccination are likely to go undetected.

Reclassified infant deaths

It appears as though some infant deaths attributed to SIDS may be vaccine related, perhaps associated with biochemical or synergistic toxicity due to over-vaccination. Some infants’ deaths categorized as ‘suffocation’ or due to ‘unknown and unspecified causes’ may also be cases of SIDS reclassified within the ICD. Some of these infant deaths may be vaccine related as well. This trend toward reclassifying ICD data is a great concern of the CDC “because inaccurate or inconsistent cause-of-death determination and reporting hamper the ability to monitor national trends, ascertain risk factors, and design and evaluate programs to prevent these deaths.” If some infant deaths are vaccine related and concealed within the various ICD categories for SUIDs, is it possible that other vaccine-related infant deaths have also been reclassified?

Of the 34 nations that have crossed the socio-economic threshold and are able to provide the basic necessities for infant survival—clean water, nutrition, sanitation, and health care—several require their infants to receive a relatively high number of vaccine doses and have relatively high infant mortality rates. These nations should take a closer look at their infant death tables to determine if some fatalities are possibly related to vaccines though reclassified as other causes. Of course, all SUID categories should be re-inspected. Other ICD categories may be related to vaccines as well. For example, a new live-virus orally administered vaccine against rotavirus-induced diarrhea—Rotarix®—was licensed by the European Medicine Agency in 2006 and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008. However, in a clinical study that evaluated the safety of the Rotarix vaccine, vaccinated babies died at a higher rate than non-vaccinated babies—mainly due to a statistically significant increase in pneumonia-related fatalities. (One biologically plausible explanation is that natural rotavirus infection might have a protective effect against respiratory infection.) Although these fatalities appear to be vaccine related and raise a nation’s infant mortality rate, medical certifiers are likely to misclassify these deaths as pneumonia.

Several additional ICD categories are possible candidates for incorrect infant death classifications: unspecified viral diseases, diseases of the blood, septicemia, diseases of the nervous system, anoxic brain damage, other diseases of the nervous system, diseases of the respiratory system, influenza, and unspecified diseases of the respiratory system. All of these selected causes may be repositories of vaccine-related infant deaths reclassified as common fatalities. All nations—rich and poor, industrialized and developing—have an obligation to determine whether their immunization schedules are achieving their desired goals. Progress on reducing infant mortality rates should include monitoring vaccine schedules and medical certification practices to ascertain whether vaccine-related infant deaths are being reclassified as ordinary mortality in the ICD.

How many infants can be saved with an improved IMR?

Slight improvements in IMRs can make a substantial difference. In 2009, there were approximately 4.5 million live births and 28,000 infant deaths in the United States, resulting in an infant mortality rate of 6.22/1000. If health authorities can find a way to reduce the rate by 1/1000 (16%), the United States would rise in international rank from 34th to 31st and about 4500 infants would be saved.

Conclusion

The US childhood immunization schedule requires 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year, the most in the world, yet 33 [out of 34] nations have better IMRs. Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of 0.70 (p < 0.0001) was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. When nations were grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges (12-14, 15-17, 18-20, 21-23, and 24-26), 98.3% of the total variance in IMR was explained by the unweighted linear regression model. These findings demonstrate a counter-intuitive relationship: nations that require more vaccine doses tend to have higher infant mortality rates.

Efforts to reduce the relatively high US IMR have been elusive. Finding ways to lower preterm birth rates should be a high priority. However, preventing premature births is just a partial solution to reduce infant deaths. A closer inspection of correlations between vaccine doses, biochemical or synergistic toxicity, and IMRs, is essential. All nations – rich and poor, advanced and developing – have an obligation to determine whether their immunization schedules are achieving their desired goals.

The following is information well worth passing on. It’s constructive and reinforces my advice that taking measures to boost your natural immune system could be a lifesaver.

The outbreak of the new coronavirus in China has killed more than 900 people, but one group has escaped with minimal damage: children. Youth can certainly contract the virus. Among the infected are at least two newborns, according to Chinese health officials. But few children are among those sick enough to be diagnosed with the coronavirus. Numbers are changing quickly as the outbreak evolves, but the median age of patients skews older, between 49 and 56 years old. A similar pattern holds for many infectious diseases, from the familiar, such as chickenpox and measles, to the newly emerged, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).

“One hypothesis is that the innate immune response, that is the early response that is aimed broadly at groups of pathogens, tends to be more active” in children.

“The case we’re seeing with the [emerging] coronaviruses is not that the children are not having any symptoms at all, they’re actually having viral pneumonia. But because their immune systems are so robust, it doesn’t lay them out the way it would as an adult.” Children with mild symptoms probably won’t be tested and confirmed to have the virus.

Adults are 25 times more likely to die from chickenpox than children are. And though influenza can be devastating for infants, older children usually make it through with more ease than adults. Seasonal flu death rates in adults are 10 times that of death rates in children.

Once again, the flu shot proves to be an ineffective joke “medicine” that does nothing but harm people

09February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-09-flu-shot-ineffective-joke-medicine-only-harms-people.html
albert einstein definition of insanity

(Natural News) With novel coronavirus showing no signs of relenting anytime soon, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has even more bad news: This season’s influenza vaccines are once again a mismatch, meaning they don’t work.

The public health agency claims that this year’s flu jabs are only a 58 percent match, which is “not an awful match,” according to National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (N.I.A.I.D.) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, M.D., “but it’s not a very good match.”

Part of the National Institutes of Health (N.I.H.) and an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (H.H.S.), the N.I.A.I.D. says current flu shots will not provide protection against the B/Victoria strain of flu that’s currently spreading among children. The agency says it will, however, provide some protection against H1N1, which circulated several years ago, as you may recall.

Fauci says that, in lieu of a working flu vaccine, people should stay away from crowded areas and wash their hands frequently. However, he makes no dietary or lifestyle suggestions that could help to naturally protect people against the flu.

The CDC warns that the overall hospitalization rate for seasonal flu this year is up to 19.9 per 100,000 people, while deaths associated with both influenza and pneumonia have jumped from 6.0 to 6.9 percent. So far, about 39 children have died this season from the flu and flu-related diseases.

The CDC also admits that influenza is “constantly changing” and morphing into other strains, which is why “ongoing data collection and characterization of the viruses are required.

This year’s flu strain, which flu shots won’t protect against, is hitting children “especially hard”

In its weekly flu report, the CDC revealed that more than half of those afflicted by this year’s primary circulating flu strain are children and adults under the age of 25, a much higher proportion of young people compared to previous years.

The reason for this, say experts, is that the current flu strain is designated as a B variety, which reportedly afflicts children and young people to a much higher degree than older people.

“We’ve seen something this year that we haven’t seen in probably 27 years, which is a noticeable increase in the number of influenza B infections early in the season,” stated Andi L. Shane, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at Emory University‘s School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare in Atlanta.

Influenza A has also begun to circulate in recent weeks, this being the class associated with the H1N1 viral strain. Keep in mind that influenza A and B are in addition to the circulating novel coronavirus, which appears to be developing into a global pandemic all on its own.

“During the 2019-20 flu season, there have already been 68 reported pediatric deaths in the U.S., according to the CDC; 45 were caused by the influenza B strain,” writes Sumathi Reddy for The Wall Street Journal. “Typically, the flu season peaks between December and February and can go as late as May. There were 143 reported pediatric deaths last flu season and 188 in 2017-18.”

Schools and school districts across multiple states are reporting multi-day closures in response to these virulent strains of seasonal flu. Knox County, Tennessee, for example, closed all 88 of its schools for three days, which affected more than 5,000 students who stayed home and didn’t go to class.

“I think there was a concern that this was more of a novel strain that kids haven’t seen so they are getting sicker,” says Dr. Ari Brown, a pediatrician from Texas.

(Natural News) A new study published in the prestigious journal Vaccine, a peer-reviewed medical journal, published by Elsevier, titled Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017-2018 influenza season, reveals that influenza vaccination may increase the risk of infection from other respiratory viruses — a phenomenon known as virus interference.

(Article by GMI Reporter republished from GreenMedInfo.com)

Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference

The purpose of the study was to evaluate so-called “test negative study designs,” which are used to calculate influenza vaccine effectiveness without consideration for the effects the flu vaccine may have in changing the risk of infection for other viruses which can cause respiratory illness, which the authors point out may result in, “potentially biasing vaccine effectiveness results in the positive direction.” They elaborate further:

“The virus interference phenomenon goes against the basic assumption of the test-negative vaccine effectiveness study that vaccination does not change the risk of infection with other respiratory illness, thus potentially biasing vaccine effectiveness results in the positive direction. This study aimed to investigate virus interference by comparing respiratory virus status among Department of Defense personnel based on their influenza vaccination status. Furthermore, individual respiratory viruses and their association with influenza vaccination were examined.”

The study results fly directly in the face of recent health recommendations that one should get an influenza vaccine to protect against Coronavirus-19.

Read the New York Times at your own risk.

According to the study, “vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus.” More specifically,

“Examining non-influenza viruses specifically, the odds of both coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher when compared to unvaccinated individuals (OR?=?1.36 and 1.51, respectively) (Table 5).”

That represents a 36% and 51% increased risk of coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in influenza vaccinated individuals, respectively.

According to the study, “vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus.”

While the study did find there was significant protection with flu vaccination against most influenza viruses, including also parainfluenza, RSV, and non-influenza virus coinfections, previous research raises red flags. A 2018 study published in PNAS found that receiving a flu vaccination in the current and previous season may increase aerosol shedding of flu particles 6.3 times more as compared with having no vaccination in those two seasons.

In the last day, since Tuesday, March 10, 2020, 10,827 foreigners have voluntarily left Israel and in the last two weeks (February 25, 2020) 197,066 foreigners left Israel.

Since the last decision came into effect on Friday, their entry into Israel has been denied in all the crossings (Ben Gurion Airport, Ramon, Taba, Rabin), over 400 foreigners who meet the prohibition on entry.

Following are the number of foreigners who, according to * the Population and Immigration Authority *, have voluntarily left Israel since Friday, 6.3.2020, according to selected countries:

Austria- 498
Italy- 215
Germany – 3,714
Spain- 1,033
Egypt-17
France – 3,260
Switzerland- 463
US 11,924
Poland- 2,879
Romania – 1,599
Thousands of other nationals have also come out.

At the same time, 8,934 Israelis entered the country in the last day and in the last two weeks, 235,012 Israelis entered.

Since the decision came into force, tens of thousands of others have been prevented in order to prevent their refusal at the border.

We used to wonder how HASHEM would make this happen (make the foreigners leave and bring the Jews home), but we never doubted that HE would, and it would only be happening NOW and in this WAY because MASHIACH is already here and working on HIS behalf.

We knew the day would come when flights would once again be grounded and the doors would close, but we always imagined it would be because of a major war.  Maybe THIS VIRUS is actually the “merciful” path.

EVERYTHING WE ARE SEEING TODAY HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE WORLD!!

And it would not be happening just now unless the old world was already finished and a new one was finally beginning.

This Is Not A Drill: Why Covid-19 Could Be The Deadly Pandemic That Changes Everything

Tyler Durden 25Februray2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/not-drill-why-covid-19-could-be-deadly-pandemic-changes-everything

Authored by Cat Ellis via The Organic Prepper blog,

It has been almost three months since the Wuhan coronavirus, now known officially as COVID-19, emerged in Wuhan, China. This novel coronavirus is the latest candidate to be the next major pandemic. We’ve learned a lot about COVID-19 in that time, and unfortunately, there is still so much we don’t know.

One thing that has becoming impossible to ignore, however, is that this not a drill.

 

Like all outbreaks, it’s impossible to know for sure if any particular one will become the next deadly, global pandemic until it either happens or doesn’t happen.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is shaping into what appears to be the one that folks will be reading about in a hundred years in the same way we look back in history at the Spanish flu.

What We Thought We Knew

When the first cluster of 41 patients was identified in early December 2019 in Wuhan, China, early data suggested that the virus was only of real concern to the elderly, infirm, and those with comorbidities, such as diabetes and heart disease.

These would be standard expectations of a viral respiratory illness, similar to the flu. However, further inspection of that cluster only showed about half with serious illness fit that profile, meaning the other half who sought hospital care were younger, presumably healthier adults.

This novel coronavirus also had an early reported case fatality rate of about 2%, as reported by the World Health Organization (WHO). A mortality rate of 2% is concerning, but not all that alarming. It’s a little higher than the typical influenza case fatality rate. But, it wasn’t close to the case fatality rate of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), another coronavirus that can be fatal to humans and has a case fatality rate of 34.4%.

As January progressed, we began seeing a handful of cases trickling into the United States and other countries. The first US case of the novel coronavirus was a young man who had returned from a trip to Wuhan. On January 21, 2020, the New York Times reported that he was a man in his thirties experiencing mild pneumonia.

More cases popped up from travelers, for business or education, in the US. But, on January 30, 2020, just a little over a week from the first patient to test positive for the Wuhan coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that the United States had it’s first person-to-person transmission of the novel coronavirus.

Cause for Concern Grows

What was not known from the beginning was the rate of transmission and what percentage of people who become infected will become seriously or critically ill.

Worldometers breaks down the number of total active cases into mild and serious/critical categories. As of February 24, 2020, about 82% have a mild illness, and about 18% have a serious/critical illness requiring hospitalization. This is up from a rate of approximately 13% serious/critical cases just a few weeks ago.

Could this mean that the virus is mutating to become more dangerous? Possibly. But it could also just mean that as more data is collected, this additional data gives us a clearer picture of the real case fatality rate. Remember that the data we’ve received from China all along has been questionable. As the virus spreads to countries with more transparency, what we thought we knew is bound to change.

The same source cites the rate of transmission at between 2 to 3, meaning if there were a room with 10 people, and a person infected with this virus entered the room, you could reasonably expect 2 to 3 people to also become infected. For perspective, that is also 2 to 3 times as contagious as the flu.

The Worldometers coronavirus tracker, which is in line with several other coronavirus trackers from Johns HopkinsBNO News, and Visa List, also lists the results of closed cases, i.e. cases with an actual outcome. Of the known outcomes, 91% recovered and 9% were fatal. What this means is that out of all the confirmed COVID-19 cases, about 18% will lead to serious or critical illness requiring hospital-level care and that 9% of that subset will die.

What about that 2% mortality rate? Part of the problem with calculating a case fatality rate is that you can’t actually know the true mortality rate (case fatality rate) until the outbreak is completely over. Until then, there are still cases without an outcome. In COVID-10, there are thousands more cases without outcomes yet.

The case fatality rate of 9% comes from taking the total cases of fatalities (2,701) and dividing it by the total number of cases with outcomes (30,334), then multiplying by 100 to get a case fatality rate of almost 9%.

What does all this mean?

If this virus comes to your neighborhood, you most likely would have a mild respiratory illness. However, if you are one of the unfortunate people who become seriously or critically ill, there’s a 9% chance of becoming the next victim of COVID-19.

COVID-19 has continued to spread. According to Worldometers on February 24, 2020, the United States currently has 53 cases of COVID-19, with 6 recoveries. Most of the cases in the United States are people who became infected elsewhere, traveled here asymptomatic, and developed symptoms here. Though, keep in mind there have been some person-to-person cases here as well.

There are now more than 600 people in Washington state being supervised for COVID-19. The number had once been up to almost 800 but, has been reduced when no symptoms were observed after 14 days. And it isn’t just in Washington state – thousands of people across the country are in self-quarantine right now because they may have been exposed.

What Is The Real Danger from COVID-19?

Now that we are a few months out from the first known cases, we know COVID-19 is highly contagious, and it can cause about 18% of people infected to require hospital-level care.

We simply will not have the beds or the medical staff to care for everyone, even if every hospital bed in the country were to be dedicated to Wuhan coronavirus patients.  Even if we forgot about all the other sick people, those having babies, and those who were injured, there still would not be enough beds just for those with coronavirus.

In The Wuhan Coronavirus Survival Manual, I touched on the hospital overload.

The latest data I could find for how many hospital beds are available in the United States is for 2018 from the American Hospital Association. They put the total number of hospital beds in 2018 at 924,107. This is similar to the data from Stastisca.com, and it confirms that there was still a downward trend in the number of available hospital beds in 2018.

Assuming the downward trend has continued since 2018, we have less than 924 thousand available beds for every sick person from all causes in the United States. We are facing the potential worst-case scenario of 2,697,300 hospitalizations for Wuhan coronavirus alone.

This would raise the death toll from all causes as hospitals reach surge capacity. Surge capacity occurs when there is a sudden influx of patients that a hospital becomes overwhelmed and cannot treat any additional sick people.

In this situation, there are no more beds, and there is not enough hospital staff to treat any more patients.

Often, during a pandemic, it is not the pandemic illness itself that will kill a person. During the 2014 Ebola pandemic, it was common for people to die of some other health problem, and not Ebola, simply because doctors and nurses were too afraid to come to work. In other places, health care workers also became sick and unable to care for patients, as they were now patients themselves.

Imagine going into labor in the middle of a pandemic crisis. While homebirth attended by a skilled midwife has consistently proven to be safe and have better outcomes than hospital births, things can and still do go wrong. What if that were to happen during a pandemic with no beds available? What if you or a loved one experienced a heart attack or stroke? What if you were in a car accident or injured in a mob trying to get the last supplies off a grocery store shelf and needed emergency room care? (source)

If this virus continues to spread, it would be reasonable to expect massive disruptions to modern life, manufacturing, shipping, and shortages of all kinds. The number of fatalities from other illnesses, accidents, and lack of services would be in addition to the fatalities from the coronavirus itself. If you are preparing for this, remember that you aren’t just preparing for a cushy 2-week staycation. You’re preparing for something that affects many other facets of your life.

The entire system will be at risk in the event of a massive outbreak and shortages of all sorts could soon follow.

Is COVID-19 the Next Pandemic?

From the moment the Wuhan coronavirus appeared in mainstream US media, the message has largely been a call for calm, downplaying any risk to our nation. However, government actions and those of worldwide organizations tell a different story.

  • The United States declared a state of emergency, limiting flights coming from Wuhan.
  • The World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern, or PHEIC, on January 20, 2020.The Director of the World Health Organization, Tedros Ghebreyesus, stated in a press conference and in a tweet the day following the press conference (February 9, 2020), something truly ominous.

    The detection of a small number of cases may indicate more widespread transmission in other countries; in short we may only be seeing the tip of the iceberg.

  • The CDC held a press briefing with Dr. Nancy Messonier, where she stated the Centers for Disease Control is preparing as if COVID-19 will be the next great pandemic:

    As I look around me at the staff working on this outbreak here at CDC, I see a lot of people who worked on the 2009 h1n1 pandemic. Rather than coming from abroad, that virus was on our doorstep when we recognized it.  We didn’t have much chance to prepare.  Today we are again seeing the emergence of the new virus that poses a very serious public health threat.  This time we do have time to prepare, and we are preparing as if this were the next pandemic.

  • The Organic Prepper reported on how hospitals in the US, as well as the United States military, are preparing for COVID-19 to spread across the country.

Experts from the Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota University both warn families to prepare for a COVID-19 outbreak.

But Minnesota Department of Health infectious disease director Kris Ehresmann said it’s very likely there will be outbreaks of the virus here. And Michael Osterholm, an expert in infectious disease at the University of Minnesota, said people should assume the virus will hit hard.

The article continues, covering the likelihood of hospitals reaching capacity, the need for plans to keep power and utilities running during an outbreak, for families to have communication plans, discuss who would take care of sick family members (assuming they wouldn’t require hospital-level care), and to have extra food on hand.

Just to make sure that you know you have some basic resources, in terms of foodstuffs and things like that,” she said. “So that if you would have family members get sick and you were unable to go out for a few days, do you have enough basic supplies to kind of keep going?

The official warning signs are everywhere if you are paying attention.

Mandatory Quarantines

What comes with pandemics? Mandatory quarantines. We saw them in the Ebola outbreak of 2014, and we’re seeing them now in China. According to the New York Times:

Residential lockdowns of varying strictness — from checkpoints at building entrances to hard limits on going outdoors — now cover at least 760 million people in China, or more than half the country’s population, according to a New York Times analysis of government announcements in provinces and major cities. Many of these people live far from the city of Wuhan, where the virus was first reported and which the government sealed off last month.

This article discusses many of the dystopian measures used in China to quarantine people.

Think that could never happen here? The CDC is already considering these extreme measures.

Today officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that although the agency is taking historic measures to slow the introduction of COVID-19 into the United States, the country should prepare for the possibility of community spread, as seen in China and neighboring Asian countries.

“The day may come when we may need to implement such measures as seen in Asia,” Nancy Messonnier, MD, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a press conference, referencing the closing of businesses, schools, and churches in multiple countries where transmission is now occurring within the community.

Don’t kid yourself. If things start spreading here as it has in other countries, the government will crack down so fast it will make your head spin. If things lead to the place that all the signs are pointing to, you’d be wise to get prepared for the possibility of being quarantined due to a pandemic. As well, remember that there are deep financial ramifications to people being unable to go about their daily business.

Prepping for a Covid-19 Pandemic

I spent the weekend adding to the comfort and capabilities of my secondary location, and this week I’m putting up extra food. You may wish to do the same. Here’s a list of resources for those who want to prepare for the possibility of a pandemic, quarantines, and lockdowns.

Don’t expect a lengthy warning with time to run to the store if a mandatory quarantine occurs. You will be spending that quarantine with the things you already have on hand, so now is the time to prepare for that possibility.

This Is Not A Drill

While containment still remains the mainstay of WHO and CDC policy, if we pay attention to what our government, military, and world health agencies are telling us, they are preparing for a full-on coronavirus pandemic.

We have authorities in infectious disease telling us to have food and plans in place in the event you suddenly find yourself under travel restrictions or in a full-blown, lock-down quarantine. I’m not sure what else there is to say except this is not a drill.

I hope that containment will still save the day. Perhaps we will do better in the United States than some others will, and not see COVID-19 spread any further, unlike Italy with large clusters forming seemingly overnight, leading to school and work closings in multiple cities.

While I always hope for the best, I also always plan for the worst. You won’t get much time to prepare if things begin spreading rapidly where you are. You’d be wise to do so ahead of time.

Are you prepared for the next Black Death? Here’s what you can do to prepare for a pandemic

28October2019 / By https://outbreak.news/2019-10-28-are-you-prepared-for-the-next-black-death.html
prepare for a pandemic
From malaria, to Ebola, or even the flu, tons of diseases break out and kill hundreds or even thousands of people every year. Any of these diseases could easily turn into an epidemic.

For example, in 2017 an outbreak of the bubonic plague – the same plague that killed 60 percent of Europe in the 14th century – and the pneumonic plague swept through the island nation of Madagascar, infecting over 2,348 people and causing at least 202 deaths.

The next Black Death could be just around the corner. Experts believe that the next big pandemic could kill up to 80 million people. They even claim that the world is woefully unprepared for it. It’s time that you broke from the mold. Here are several things you can do to keep yourself safe if and when that day comes. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)

Strengthen your bug-out location

Before SHTF, make sure your bug-out location (BOL) is ready to protect you against an epidemic of massive proportions. The number one thing to consider is that your BOL is secure, concealed, and far from major population centers. Cities and towns are potential hives for the pandemic, and other people accidentally stumbling upon your BOL could be the death of you and your family. Keeping your BOL out of the way ensures safety.

Stockpile the essentials

Your BOL needs to be fully stocked with everything you’re ever going to need. Food and water are your first priority, and you need to figure out a way to replenish your stores. A proper rainwater harvesting system will keep you from dying of thirst. Keeping a gun around will help you defend your BOL as well as make hunting game a possibility if you run low on food.

You’ll also want a lot of natural immune system boosters. They are necessary to enhance your body’s ability to resist infection. (Related: Boosting immune system with natural methods offers many health benefits.)

Head to your bug-out location

Be prepared to bug out at any moment. When you do, chances are it’s just going to be due to another seasonal flu. If that’s the case, you can always return. But if it’s much worse than that, it’s going to be difficult to leave, especially if you live in an urban area. Don’t hesitate; you’ll be thankful that you bugged out early when SHTF.

Keep contact with other people to a minimum

If at all possible, reduce contact to zero. You could get the infection from anyone. You never know who may be carrying it. You and the other people in your BOL should be the only people you trust to be close to. If you have to meet with other people, do so only in case of an emergency and be sure to wear the proper safety gear. This means covering yourself from head to toe in personal protective equipment: Gloves, respirators, goggles, and clothing that fully encloses you.

Remember the 30-feet rule

If you absolutely have to make contact with people outside of your BOL, then make sure that all communication is done at least 30 feet away from each other. Yell if you have to, but under no circumstance should you be face to face with other people. Preferably, you would also be upwind of the person so that the disease, if it can be transmitted through the air, can’t get to you.

Anyone who hasn’t been quarantined with you in your BOL is suspect, even if they don’t show symptoms. Many people may be carriers without showing any signs that they’re infected. It doesn’t matter if they’re a neighbor or a loved one. If they weren’t with you when you bugged out, they’re as good as strangers.

Remember that diseases like the flu kill hundreds and even thousands of people each year. The next big pandemic is right around the corner, and you don’t want to be the person struggling to grab as many supplies as possible in the local supermarket when it’s too late. Preparing now can mean the difference between surviving and lying sick in a hospital bed.

Prepping for a pandemic: What you should do before, during and after it strikes

February 03, 2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-03-prepping-for-a-pandemic-before-during-after.html
Men More Prone To Coronavirus Infection Than Women
(Natural News) Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably already heard about the outbreaks of coronavirus across the globe, particularly the pneumonia outbreak it caused in Wuhan, China, in 2019.

It may be alarming, but don’t panic just yet. Instead, you must learn what to do in the face of a possible coronavirus outbreak. (h/t to ApartmentPrepper.com)

Coronavirus: Deadlier than the common cold

Health experts searching for the source of the 2019-nCoV or the Wuhan coronavirus are baffled. This particular strain, also dubbed the novel coronavirus, is a type of virus that has never been encountered before.

First identified in the mid-1960s, coronaviruses were named for their unusual crown-like shape. These viruses usually cause respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold.

Many of the infected patients in Wuhan, China, worked or shopped at a wholesale seafood market that also sold live and freshly slaughtered animals. Experts believe this is how the virus crossed to humans from an animal host.

Wuhan coronavirus symptoms include cough, fever and difficulty breathing. As a patient’s symptoms worsen, their condition can lead to pneumonia, kidney failure and even death.

Wuhan coronavirus in the US

As of writing, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed the first case of 2019-nCoV in the US. The patient is said to be an adult male in his 30s. He traveled through Wuhan to Snohomish County, Washington State, north of Seattle.

The CDC warns that the public should make the necessary preparations since this won’t be the last case of infection. To date, there are 300 confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV, with six reported deaths.

Authorities from China noted that 2019-nCoV can also be transmitted from human to human. The majority of cases are in China, but cases have also been reported in Japan and in South Korea.

The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) are closely monitoring these cases. Screenings for the new disease are also being conducted at three airports:

  • New York City’s JFK International Airport
  • Los Angeles International Airport
  • San Francisco International Airport

The patient from Washington State arrived in America before the screenings were initiated.

CDC guidelines for 2019-nCoV

The CDC has issued the following guidelines for travelers who are about to visit Wuhan:

  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Avoid animals (alive or dead), animal markets and products from animals, like raw meat.
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The CDC also has guidelines for those who traveled to Wuhan, particularly those who feel sick with a cough, difficulty breathing or a fever:

  • Do not travel while you’re sick.
  • Rest and stay home. Avoid contact with others, except while seeking medical attention.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Don’t use your hands, which may spread the virus.
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Seek medical attention immediately. Before going to a doctor’s office or the emergency room, call ahead and inform them about your recent travel and your symptoms.

What to do before SHTF

Stay calm and take note of the following things you can do to prepare for a possible outbreak.

  1. Prep a comprehensive first aid kit and learn basic first aid skills. Knowing what to do in an emergency ensures that you don’t waste time waiting at doctor’s offices and emergency rooms when SHTF.
  2. Avoid crowds to lower your risk of catching a cold or flu.
  3. Boost your immune system. Follow a healthy diet, get enough sleep and exercise regularly.
  4. Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a hand-sanitizer with 60 percent alcohol content.
  5. Masks are often the first thing that will sell out in areas with reported outbreaks of 2019-nCoV. Stock up as soon as you can.
  6. You may also need disposable gloves if you’re caring for a sick person in your household.
  7. Prepare a bug-in plan for your family before 2019-nCoV spreads in your neighborhood.
  8. Stockpile at least two weeks’ worth of water and food supplies in your home if you need to quarantine yourself.

Monitor the news, don’t panic and prepare before the 2019-nCoV outbreak reaches your area.

25 Survival supplies you’ll need to stock up on before SHTF

23February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-23-25-survival-supplies-stock-up-before-shtf.html

(Natural News) Starting a survival stockpile is one of the most daunting tasks for beginner preppers, especially if you have no idea where to start. The important thing is to do it before SHTF, not when things are already going south.

The following items are versatile and can be used for many purposes. You can even use some of them for trading for other supplies. (h/t to UrbanSurvivalSite.com)

  1. Aluminum foil – Use aluminum foil for cooking food or collecting rainwater. If you’re lost in the woods, you can use its reflective surface to signal a plane or vehicle for help. You can also use it as a makeshift sharpener for dull scissors. Smooth out a sheet of foil, fold it in half a couple of times and cut it. After cutting the foil for some time, the scissors will be as good as new.
  2. Ammunition, air rifles, BBs, pellets – These weapons can be used for hunting and self-defense. You can also stock up on smaller weapons like slingshots.
  3. Baking sodaBaking soda can be used for more than cooking. Baking soda is a non-toxic ingredient that can be used for cleaning, deodorizing and even brushing teeth.
  4. Bandanas, baseball hats, cotton handkerchiefs – Hats will keep the sun out of your eyes while the hankies and bandanas can be used as makeshift protection from smoke.
  5. Batteries – Opt for rechargeable batteries that work with a solar battery charger.
  6. Buckets, lids – Stackable five-gallon buckets are best for storing supplies. Use food grade containers for food supplies.
  7. Cash or precious metals – After a large-scale disaster, your debit and credit cards may become useless. Have emergency cash and precious metals like silver or gold on hand so you can buy supplies.
  8. Coffee, hot chocolate, tea – These items may not be essential to your survival, but having them in your stockpile can give you a sense of comfort during an emergency. If you don’t like coffee, hot chocolate and tea, you can use them for bartering.
  9. Cotton socks, hooded jackets, shirts, thermal underwear – If these items are on sale, stock up on them. They’re also perfect for bartering.
  10. Duct tape – Duct tape is a versatile item that deserves space in your stockpile. You can use it to patch up your gear or tools.
  11. Entertainment – When SHTF, you can boost morale among the adults and entertain kids with toys, board games, story books, coloring books, crayons and other items.
  12. Feminine hygiene supplies – If there are women in the group, they’ll need feminine hygiene supplies. Even if you don’t have women in your family, other preppers will barter for them when SHTF.
  13. Firestarters, lighters, matches – You’ll need fire for cooking and staying warm. Store charcoal and lighter fluid for easier firestarting.
  14. Firewood – Stock up on firewood, especially if you live in an area with a cold climate. Store firewood properly to ensure that it burns well when it’s time to use it.
  15. First aid supplies – Common first aid supplies like burn ointment, bandages, pads and wound cleaners are a must-have when disaster strikes.
  16. Fishing poles, fishing line – Fishing gear is essential for finding food in a survival scenario.
  17. Garbage bags – You’ll need large trash bags for waste disposal. Garbage bags can also be used as makeshift raincoats or for waterproofing your gear and supplies.
  18. Gardening tools and supplies – Stock up on simple hand tools for gardening and seeds if you plan on growing your own food or bartering when SHTF.
  19. Hardware supplies – You’ll need the following items for your toolbox: nails, nuts and bolts, screen patches and screws. Glue and small hand tools like hammers, pliers and screwdrivers should also be included in your stockpile.
  20. Infant supplies – When SHTF, baby formula and disposable diapers will be valuable commodities.
  21. Manual can openers – Get manual can openers and save some for backup. Use extra ones for bartering.
  22. Non-perishable food – Different kinds of survival food will last for months or even years if you store them properly in your stockpile. Check your supplies regularly and rotate items as needed.
  23. Pet food – If you have pets, stock up on their needs as well, like food and their favorite toy. They will also need their own go-bags if you plan on bugging out.
  24. Soap, personal hygiene items – Soap is cheap and easy to store. You’ll need them for personal use or trading.
  25. Water filters and purifiers – You’ll need water for drinking, cooking, bathing and washing. Stocking up on extra water filters and purifiers is also a great tactic if you plan on bartering with fellow preppers.

Beginners and experienced preppers alike should stock up on these items before disaster strikes. There’s no such thing as too many when SHTF.

What I Bought to Prep for a Wuhan Coronavirus Lockdown

by Daisy Luther 29January2020 https://www.theorganicprepper.com/what-i-bought-to-prep-for-a-wuhan-coronavirus-lockdown/

Panic over the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China is becoming more widespread and people are frantically getting prepared in case this thing goes bad. Things like N95 masks and other PPE are pretty much sold out in stores across the nation and also on Amazon. (Here are some places you may still be able to find masks and PPE that are not yet sold out.)

In light of this, the most common question I’ve been asked lately by readers is, “What do I need to buy?”

Here’s what we know about the Wuhan Coronavirus.

First things first, more important than purchasing a whole bunch of stuff is understanding the virus itself. You need to know how it spreads, what the incubation period is, and who is the most at risk. This article has information about what we know right now to be true.

Now, keep in mind that what we currently “know” is being filtered by the Chinese government. We have a lot of reasons to believe that they aren’t being fully open with the rest of the world. For example, the numbers they’re reporting don’t really align with the complicated and expensive steps that China has taken to quarantine people and restrict their travel. But – we do have a small set of facts to work with and as we get more information, we’ll be able to add it to our plan and adjust our preparedness strategies accordingly.

Here’s what appears to be true:

  • Most of the people who are dying are elderly or had pre-existing health conditions.
  • The symptoms are flu-like, but what kills people is when it turns into pneumonia.
  • It is spread person-to-person – it can be airborne on droplets from coughing and sneezing.
  • It has been transmitted to at least one person who has not been to Wuhan.
  • The incubation period is anywhere from 2-14 days and people are contagious before they show symptoms.
  • The death rate is around 3% if what we’re being told is accurate.

There’s a lot of information we can glean from the facts above, assuming they’re accurate.

The most important thing is that the best method to avoid becoming ill is social isolation, also called “lockdown” or “self-quarantine.” There’s a lot of information about that in this book which is only available on Kindle. You can also check out this article. The other most important thing is to wash your hands, thoroughly and often.

So, how do we prep for this? How do we get ready to go into lockdown?

What does it mean to go into lockdown?

If you are self-quarantining or going into lockdown, what does that mean exactly? It means no one goes out and no one comes in. Below is an excerpt from an article I wrote during the Ebola scare of 2014 that explains the rules of lockdown.

Avoiding contact with people who have the illness is the only way to prevent getting it. Isolating yourselves is the best way to stay safe and healthy.

This is the tricky part: How do you know that the time has come to get the family inside and lock the doors behind you?

Lizzie Bennett, a retired medical professional, wrote an incredibly helpful article over on her website Underground Medic, which unfortunately is no longer up and running. Bennett recommends social distancing as the only effective way to protect yourself and your family from an outbreak of disease.

How long you should remain isolated depends primarily on where you live. For those in towns and cities it will be for much longer than those living in rural retreats where human contact is minimal. Though those fortunate enough to live in such surroundings should remember that if the situation is dire enough, people will leave the cities looking for safety in less populated areas. In large centres of population there will be more people moving around, legally or otherwise, each of these individuals represents a possible uptick in the disease rates, allowing the spread to continue longer than it would have they stayed indoors and/or out of circulation. Even when the initial phase is on the wane, or has passed through an area, people travelling into that area can bring it back with them triggering a second wave of disease as people are now emerging from their isolation…

One hundred miles is my buffer zone for disease, of course it could already be in my city, but practicalities dictate that I will not stay away from people because hundreds in Europe are dropping like flies. Maps of disease spread look like a locust swarm moving across the country and this allows disease spread to be tracked on an hour by hour basis. One of the few instances where mainstream media will be useful.

Once you’ve gone into lockdown, how long you must stay there is dependent on the spread of the illness. Times will vary. Bennett suggests these guidelines:

Once the doors were locked we would stay there for at least two weeks after the last case within 100 miles is reported. A government all clear would be weighed against how long it had been since the last case was reported in the area I have designated as my buffer zone. There is of course still the chance that someone from outside the area will bring the disease in with them causing a second wave of illness. You cannot seal off cities to prevent this. Going out after self-imposed isolation should be kept to a minimum for as long as possible, and if you don’t have to, then don’t do it. Far better to let those that are comfortable being out and about get on with it and see if any new cases emerge before exposing yourself and your family to that possibility.

If the situation hits close enough to home that you decide to go it’s time to isolate yourselves, the rules to this are intractable.

No one goes out. No one comes in.

I know this sounds harsh, but there are to be no exceptions. If you make exceptions, you might as well go wrestle with runny-nosed strangers at the local Wal-Mart and then come home and hug your children, because it’s the same thing.

Once you have gone into lockdown mode, that means that the supplies you have on hand are the supplies you have to see you through. You can’t run out to the store and get something you’ve forgotten.

That means if a family member shows up, they have to go into quarantine for at least 2 weeks, during which time they are not allowed access to the home or family, nor are they allowed to go out in public. Set up an area on your property that is far from your home for them to hang out for their month of quarantine. If at the end of the two weeks they are presenting no symptoms, then they can come in.

Now is the time to plan with your preparedness group how you intend to handle the situation. Will you shelter together, in the same location, and reserve a secondary location to retreat to if the situation worsens further or if someone becomes ill? Will you shelter separately because of the nature of the emergency?

Decide together on what event and proximity will trigger you to go into lockdown mode. Make your plan and stick to it, regardless of pressure from those who think you are over-reacting, the school that your children have stopped attending, and any other external influences. If you’ve decided that there is a great enough risk that you need to go into lockdown, you must adhere to your plan.

Check out this article. It was written for an Ebola lockdown but the rules remain the same, aside from the length of time for people to become symptomatic.

A shopping trip to prep for Wuhan Coronavirus

I’m currently visiting one of my daughters and we went out to shop for a potential pandemic. In the area where she lives, the coronavirus isn’t really on most people’s radar yet, so we had our choice of supplies.

Here are the things you may need and the items we purchased ourselves. You probably have a lot of these things already, so check your inventory before going shopping.

PPE

While you want to have some personal protection equipment supplies, I recommend that instead of spending hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on PPE, you focus the majority of your money on other things. PPE is only necessary for two reasons:

  • If you have to leave the house in the midst of an outbreak, you’ll want PPE. (But your goal should be not to leave the house)
  • If someone in the family becomes ill, you’ll want PPE for taking care of them.

If you prep carefully enough and manage to avoid contracting the virus, your need for PPE will be limited. That being said, having at least a few masks and gloves is a good idea in the event that you must leave the house or if you have a sick family member.

As far as PPE goes, obviously you want the best quality you can get your hands on, but remember that some protection is better than no protection. That isn’t to say you’ll be totally protected with a bandana – you won’t – but it’s better than going to some germ-laden place completely unprotected. Again, many places are sold out, but here are some places that still have PPE and masks available as of 2/3/20.

We did not purchase any additional PPE because we were already pretty well-set with pandemic supplies like gloves and masks. (We stocked up heavily during the Ebola scare back in 2014.)

Medical supplies

There are other medical supplies you may want to stock up on. We particularly focused on things that boost the immune system and medicine cabinet basics.

  • Vitamins (a good multivitamin, B-complex, C, D3, and Zinc lozenges. Emergen-C is also a worthwhile purchase)
  • Cold and flu meds – if someone gets sick, you’ll be able to treat the symptoms at home
  • Elderberry syrup – I recommend Sambucol because it has been rigorously tested – learn more about elderberry for the flu here and learn how to make your own elderberry syrup here.
  • Cough drops or lozenges
  • Peppermint tea and other herbal teas
  • Basic OTC medications you might need over the period of a month without going to the store – think about what your family uses regularly (heartburn meds, ibuprofen, antidiarrheals, etc.)
  • Wound care supplies – if it’s reasonable to do so, you’ll want to treat wounds at home instead of sitting in a germ-filled emergency room. Here’s an article about building your first aid kit.
  • A couple of months’ worth of essential prescription medications.

So, you get the idea – things to keep you healthy and things to make you feel better if you do get sick. One of the things Selco noted in his article about pandemics is the breakdown in services and the system that can occur during a panic, and the scenes we’re seeing from China certainly back up what he had to say. Having the supplies to treat your own medical issues is very important.

Cleaning supplies

We also picked up some cleaning and sanitation supplies.

  • Lysol spray
  • Lysol wipes
  • Bleach
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Antibacterial soap

Even if you never use things like bleach or Lysol, this might be the time that you’ll want to do so. Sometimes situations call for natural remedies, but sometimes they call for chemical ones or a combination of the two.

Particularly if a family member becomes ill, you’re going to want products that kill 99% or more of viruses and bacteria. During the outbreak, focus on wiping commonly touched surfaces like light switches, doorknobs, drawer pulls, and the refrigerator handle multiple times per day.

Food and other supplies

The next things you’ll want are the food and supplies that will allow you to stay home for one to two months if things go totally sideways here in the US. Longer is always better, but at a minimum, be prepared for 30-60 days. It’s most likely you’ll have power and water throughout this crisis, but be prepared for the possibility that essential services might not be available, just in case.

Choose things that are easy to prepare for several reasons.

  • If you get sick, you aren’t going to want to slave over a hot stove for 4 hours before you have something to eat.
  • If the power goes out, you’ll use less fuel if you cook items that just need some boiling water.

Choose items with a lot of nutritional bang for their buck. Remember, your goal is to stay healthy and keep your immune system ticking along. Make sure to include plenty of produce options to give yourself lots of nutrients. A few of the things we got (and this list is general – go with what your family will actually eat):

  • Canned goods
  • Crackers
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta
  • Frozen fruits and vegetables
  • Dehydrated soups
  • Jerky
  • Meat for the freezer
  • Powdered milk
  • Granola
  • Dried fruit
  • 100% fruit juices
  • V-8 or other vegetable juices (use these instead of water to rehydrate your dehydrated soups)
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrots

Again, this is a starting point. Check out my PDF book, The Stockpile Cafe for more ideas on meals you can create with shelf-stable foods. We also have buckets of freeze-dried food to fall back on if we were to go through all of these supplies. If you’ve waited too long and the shelves are nearly bare, here are some ideas for the last-minute shopper.

Keep plenty of water on hand, too, just in case. If you go into lockdown, as you use up water, refill the container from the tap.

If you have pets, don’t forget to get at least a one-month supply of goods for them, also.

  • Pet medications
  • Pet food
  • Kitty litter or other sanitation supplies they’ll need

If you have livestock, you’ll want to do a big run to the feed store for them too. Include bedding, food, hay, and any meds you might need for them.

And be sure to have any personal hygiene supplies you might need over the course of a couple of months. It would be awful to have to go out in the middle of a pandemic because you ran out of shampoo.

  • Soap
  • Feminine hygiene supplies
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Lotion and skincare products
  • Razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant

And of course, add whatever other products your family uses on a regular basis.

How are you prepping for the Wuhan Coronavirus?

The most important thing that I can express right now is how essential it is NOT to panic. This is the time to calmly prepare, to top up your supplies, and to be watchful.

Think of it like a hurricane watch. We first get informed it may be coming while it’s still safely out at sea. This gives us time to stock up, get the supplies for boarding up our windows, and prepare our property for a potential onslaught. Then, sometimes that hurricane turns out to sea or hits someplace else instead of us. And sometimes it comes straight for us. The thing is, we can’t know this soon which it will be.

So pay attention but try not to fall for the hype and the drama. When you’re scared, you can become paralyzed or make poor spending decisions. Find some reliable sources and focus on those. Zero Hedge has been my number one source for information on this outbreak.

What are you purchasing to prepare for the Wuhan Coronavirus? What do you recommend to people who are just getting started? Share your ideas, thoughts, and questions in the comments.

What Are the Most Effective Natural Antibiotics?

Medically reviewed by Debra Sullivan, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, COI on October 7, 2019 — Written by Chaunie Brusie, RN, BSN https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-13-emergency-medicine-skills-creating-your-own-penicillin-at-home.html

Do natural antibiotics really work?

Antibiotics are used to kill or inhibit bacteria growth. Although you might think of antibiotics as modern medicine, they’ve actually been around for centuries. The original antibiotics, like a lot of today’s antibiotics, are derived from natural sources.

Certain plant extracts, essential oils, and even foods have antibiotic properties. For example, some food and vegetable extracts can prevent the growth of bacteria in food.

Sometimes, these properties extend beyond the food and can aid in your personal hygiene. Cranberry extract contains both antibacterial and antioxidant compounds, making it a home remedy for urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Herbs can be antibiotics, too. A small sampling study of 58 Chinese plants found that 23 had antibacterial properties and 15 had antifungal properties.

A 2014 studyTrusted Source found that an herbal therapy was just as effective as a chemical antibiotic in treating a small intestine bacterial overgrowth disorder.

Keep reading to learn about five popular antibiotics that you can try at home.

Option 1: Honey

Honey

Honey is one the oldest known antibiotics, tracing back to ancient times. Egyptians frequently used honey as a natural antibiotic and skin protectant.

Honey contains hydrogen peroxideTrusted Source, which may account for some of its antibacterial properties. It also has a high sugar content, which can help stop the growth of certain bacteria.

Additionally, honey has a low pH level. This works to pull moisture away from bacteria, causing the bacteria to get dehydrated and die off.

To use honey as an antibiotic, apply it directly to the wound or infected area. The honey can help kill off the bacteria and aid in the healing process. If possible, opt for raw Manuka honey. This form of honey offers the most health benefits. You can purchase raw Manuka honey here.

You can also ingest honey to aid in the treatment of internal infections. Simply swallow a whole tablespoon or stir it into a warm cup of herbal tea for a soothing treat.

Honey is generally safe to use on the skin or in the body, though you should never give honey to an infant under 1 years old. Instead, consult your healthcare provider for an appropriate alternative.

Option 2: Garlic extract

Garlic extract

Garlic has long been thought to have antimicrobial properties. A 2011 study found that garlic concentrate is effective against bacteria. You can purchase garlic concentrate or extract at your local health food store. You may also be able to make your own by soaking a few garlic cloves in olive oil.

Garlic is generally safe to ingest, but large doses might cause internal bleeding. Up to two cloves per day is considered an acceptable dosage. If you’re taking a garlic supplement, be sure to follow the dosage directions as provided.

If you’re taking blood-thinning medication, consult your healthcare provider before using garlic as an antibiotic. Large doses of garlic can amplify the effects of this medication.

You can also apply garlic concentrate directly to a wound or blemish.[EDD: NOT recomemded]

Option 3: Myrrh extract

Myrrh extract

Many people are familiar with myrrh, but its ability to ward off harmful germs isn’t as widely known.

Researchers in a 2000 study concluded that an extract of myrrh could kill off several everyday pathogens. This includes:

Myrrh is generally well-tolerated, but ingesting it may cause diarrhea. If applying myrrh to the skin, it’s possible to experience a small skin rash. If consumed in large doses, myrrh may cause heart problems.

Myrrh is typically prepackaged, so be sure to follow the dosage instructions on the label.

Buy myrrh extract now.

Option 4: Thyme essential oil

Thyme essential oil

Many all-natural household cleaners use thyme essential oil. This oil has been shown to be especially helpful against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

In a 2011 studyTrusted Source, researchers tested the effectiveness of both lavender and thyme essential oil. Both oils were tested in a pool of over 120 strains of bacteria. The researchers found thyme essential oil to be more effective at killing bacteria than lavender essential oil.

Thyme essential oil is for external use only. You shouldn’t take thyme oil by mouth. Before applying to the affected area, be sure to dilute the essential oil with equal parts carrier oil. Common carrier oils include coconut and olive oils.

Applying undiluted essential oil to the skin may cause inflammation and irritation.

People with high blood pressure or hyperthyroid problems shouldn’t use thyme essential oil.

Purchase thyme essential oil and a carrier oil now.

Option 5: Oregano essential oil

Oregano essential oil

Carvacrol is an ingredient found in oregano essential oil. It has important therapeutic properties that further activate healing in the body when inhaled. Oregano oil has been found to help heal gastric ulcers and reduce inflammation.

To treat fungal infections on your skin, add one drop of oregano essential oil per teaspoon of a carrier oil such as olive or coconut oil . Apply the mixture to the affected area.

You can also diffuse oregano oil in the air to help clear sinus infections. You shouldn’t ingest oregano essential oil or use undiluted essential oil on the skin.

You may also be able to eradicate bacteria in the home with a homemade cleaning agent made of:

  • oregano essential oil
  • vinegar
  • water
  • lemon

Buy oregano essential oil here.

The bottom line

Be sure to discuss your interest in natural antibiotics with your healthcare provider. They can help you explore your options and help you weigh the potential benefits and risks of each regimen.

You shouldn’t take antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. Taking antibiotics for the sake of taking antibiotics can lead your body to build up a resistance to the medication. You can learn ways to help prevent antibiotic resistance here.

If your healthcare provider does prescribe you antibiotics, be sure to finish the entire treatment regimen.

From email 18February2020

From the desk of Dr. Nandita Shah…

With coronavirus topping the news these days, I have many patients asking me what they can do to make sure they don’t succumb.

Coronavirus, like any other virus whether influenza or SARS, can affect anyone who has come in contact with it. Confirmed cases are even being reported in India. It might help to know that the virus is not too deadly, it also resides in healthy carriers. This means that anyone with a high immune system may not succumb to this virus even if they are unfortunate enough to contract it. Building our immunity will not just help us withstand this novel virus, it will also help us build resilience towards other known and unknown viruses.

With a growing and a particularly dense population, India is perennially at risk of a viral epidemic. It’s up to each one of us to take charge of our health right now. We can do this by eating and living the way we as humans are designed to eat and live by nature, i.e. eat as close to an organic whole food plant-based diet as possible, keep a check on vitamin B12 and D, consume plenty of water, have enough exercise and rest at the right time. This is what SHARAN recommends to anyone who takes their health seriously.

The incidence of coronavirus is therefore a good wake-up call and we must remember its lessons if we are to safeguard ourselves from the fatal health implications of epidemics.

Vitamin D and immunity

Dr. John Campbell • 09March2020


Taking anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, cortisone, ...) could be an aggravating factor of the infection

DO NOT Take Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxan, Diclofenac, Advil, Motrin Or Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs Corticosteroids include prednisone, cortisone, and methylprednisolone.

Arutz Sheva http://www.israelnationalnews.com/

Ibuprofen exacerbates coronavirus disease

World Health Organization recommends using paracetamol to treat coronavirus symptoms, instead of anti-inflammatories. Here’s why.

Mordechai Sones, 18March2020 http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/277457

The World Health Organization has recommended that people suffering from the symptoms of the virus avoid taking ibuprofen drugs such as Advil. Instead, the organization suggests taking paracetamol, such as Acamol (Tylenol).

They studied why the disease pathway in Italy is more serious, finding that most patients took ibuprofen at home. Researchers joined the virus and ibuprofen in the laboratory and came to the conclusion that administering ibuprofen accelerates multiplication of the virus and is related to a more serious course of the disease. They recommend to avoid ibuprofen and to administer paracetamol, aspirin, diclofenac.

Consultant Pediatrician in London John Greenwood was quoted as saying: “We have just been sent a medical alert that no one is to use anti-inflammatories (e.g. Ibruprofen, Voltarol, naproxen, and others) for pain or high temperature. Use paracetamol instead. There seems to be a link between severe cases of COVID-19 affecting young people with no underlying illnesses and taking anti-inflammatories. Initial reports started coming from French doctors on Friday. This has been confirmed by infectious diseases consultants here – there are four young people in ICU in Cork who have no underlying illnesses – all were taking anti-inflammatories and there are concerns this has caused a more severe illness.”

A Lancet article entitled Are patients with hypertension and diabetes mellitus at increased risk for COVID-19 infection? says: “Human pathogenic coronaviruses (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus [SARS-CoV] and SARS-CoV-2) bind to their target cells through angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), which is expressed by epithelial cells of the lung, intestine, kidney, and blood vessels.”

“The expression of ACE2 is substantially increased in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, who are treated with ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II type-I receptor blockers (ARBs). Hypertension is also treated with ACE inhibitors and ARBs, which results in an upregulation of ACE2.5 ACE2 can also be increased by thiazolidinediones and ibuprofen. Suggest that ACE2 expression is increased in diabetes and treatment with ACE inhibitors and ARBs increases ACE2 expression. Consequently, the increased expression of ACE2 would facilitate infection with COVID-19.

“We therefore hypothesize that diabetes and hypertension treatment with ACE2-stimulating drugs increases the risk of developing severe and fatal COVID-19.”

A closer look at the natural ways to protect yourself against coronavirus

15March2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-03-15-natural-ways-to-protect-yourself-against-coronavirus.html

(Natural News) In recent months, the coronavirus pandemic — originating from Wuhan, China — has been taking the world by storm with more cases being reported daily. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently announced that there are more than 118,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide and that 4,291 have lost their lives to the infectious disease. According to Tedros, the WHO expects to see the number of cases and deaths climb even higher in the weeks ahead. Because of this, healthy-minded people are looking into ways to strengthen their body’s immune system in an attempt to find some sort of protection against the novel coronavirus.

How do you protect yourself against coronavirus?

COVID-19 is a flu-like disease caused by a member of the coronavirus family that is closely related to the SARS and MERS viruses that have caused outbreaks in the past. The disease is caused by a virus designated as SARS-CoV-2 by the Coronavirus Study Group (CSG) of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses. COVID, on the other hand, is short for “coronavirus disease.” Those with confirmed cases reported symptoms such as coughing, fever and shortness of breath. However, severe cases of COVID-19 can lead to pneumonia and death.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released guidelines on simple ways to prevent illness by limiting exposure to the virus. However, boosting the immune system can also help the body fight off infections like the coronavirus. Below you can find a few science-backed, natural ways that can provide adequate protection against the novel coronavirus pandemic. (Related: Natural ways to boost your immunity as coronavirus spreads.)

Elderberry

Elderberry is considered one of the most used medicinal plants in the world and has become a popular supplementary food against symptoms of the flu and common cold. While there are many species of elderberry, Sambucus nigra is often used for medicinal purposes due to the many health benefits it provides. However, Health Impact News reported that buying a prepared formula made with S. nigra is better than making your own from fresh berries. This is because elderberry contains natural toxins called cyanogenic glycosides which can cause vomiting, nausea, cramps and diarrhea.

Recent research has established that elderberry could reduce the effects of the common cold and influenza. A study done by researchers from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem enrolled patients who exhibited flu-like symptoms and asked them to take 15 milliliters (mL) of elderberry syrup four times a day for a testing period of five days. Their findings revealed that those who took the elderberry syrup recovered four days earlier than participants who took regular flu medications or a placebo.

Furthermore, another study, published in the journal Nutrients, gave 312 economy class passengers a 300 milligram (mg) dose of elderberry extract three times per day. The researchers found that passengers who got sick during the flight experienced much tamer symptoms and had shorter periods of illness, suggesting a significant reduction in cold duration and severity.

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver products are popular among holistic health circles and are touted as an effective antibacterial agent. However, recent studies have shown that colloidal silver can handle infectious viruses as well. In a study published in the Journal of Nanotechnology, a research team comprising of members from the University of Texas and Mexico University in Nuevo Leon found that silver nanoparticles could kill HIV-1 and other types of viruses in only three hours. The team incubated HIV-1 virus samples at 37 C and observed that the silver nanoparticle-preparations they tested eliminated 100 percent of the virus.

There are also studies that focused on the efficacy of colloidal silver against respiratory viruses similar to the novel coronavirus. A study published in the International Journal of Nanomedicine found that silver nanoparticles reduced the viral infectivity of human parainfluenza virus type 3. Researchers from the University of Naples theorized that silver is capable of doing so by blocking the interaction of the virus with the cell.

Vitamin C Supplements

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning that the body cannot produce it on its own and it must be gained from external sources. However, the vitamin plays many roles that promote overall health. A large portion of the world, especially in Asia and continental Europe, consider Vitamin C as a potent antiviral agent. Health Impact News reported that China has conducted several clinical trials that involved the intravenous application of vitamin C to treat patients with coronavirus.

While vitamin C has not been tested against coronavirus until recently, previous research has already established its effectiveness against other types of viral infections, such as influenza. A study conducted by researchers from the Seoul National University College of Medicine looked into the anti-viral immune response of vitamin C and found that it exhibits responses even at early times of influenza virus infections through the increased production of the antiviral cytokine interferon (IFN)-a/B.

Following safety precaution guidelines and even quarantining people can be effective ways to reduce the spread of coronavirus. However, these methods do not help in the event of coming into contact with the virus itself. Because of this, strengthening your immune system using natural ways should be considered as a viable and effective prevention protocol to keep yourself safe from the pandemic.

Natural ways to boost your immunity as coronavirus spreads

29February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-29-natural-ways-to-boost-your-immunity-coronavirus.html

High Natural-Vitamin-C-Apple

(Natural News) During the last half of December 2019, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) began spreading throughout China.

To date, researchers around the globe are scrambling to find a cure for COVID-19, which has already infected hundreds of thousands of people, and claimed thousands of lives.

But what if the key to staying healthy during a pandemic is strengthening your immunity with supplements and herbal remedies? Boosting your immune system could be essential to protecting yourself and not succumbing to infections in the first place.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus?

The coronavirus disease may not initially cause symptoms, and if you’re infected, you may carry the virus (SARS-CoV-2) for two days or up to two weeks before experiencing any symptoms. This makes the disease even more dangerous.

Common symptoms directly linked to COVID-19 coronavirus include:

  • Feeling short of breath.
  • Having a cough that gradually gets worse.
  • Having a low-grade fever that gradually increases in temperature.

Experts are currently studying the full list of symptoms.

Expert: Vitamins that may help boost immunity

Since a strong immune system is essential for enabling your body to fight infections, here are some promising natural protection strategies, according to nutritional experts.

Vitamin C

In an article titled “Coronavirus: Exploring Effective Nutritional Treatments,” written by Andrew W. Saul for the Orthomolecular News Service, he analyzed data gleaned from over 30 clinical studies to verify the antiviral power of vitamin C against different flu viruses spanning several decades.

Saul found that vitamin C inactivates the virus and boosts immunity to continue suppressing the virus. Many cases showed that oral supplementation of at least 10,000 mg of vitamin C daily offered protective benefits. But when dealing with stronger viruses, one may require larger doses given intravenously, such as 100,000 to 150,000 mg of vitamin C daily.

Vitamin C helps your body produce the antioxidant glutathione, as well as an antiviral called interferon.

In cases where IV vitamin C is unavailable, individuals gradually increased their oral dose up to 50,000 mg daily before reaching bowel tolerance. Most people are able to consume five grams (5,000 mg) of powdered or crystal forms of high-quality ascorbic acid at a time every four hours, to the tolerance of their digestive tract.

Andrew Saul writes, “Every virus seems to respond to this type of treatment, regardless of the whether it is SARs, Bird flu, Swine flu or the new Coronavirus flu.”

(Related: Clinical trials of intravenous vitamin C treatments for coronavirus commence in China.)

Vitamin D3

In a study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled study where they gave the treatment group 1,200 IU (international units) of vitamin D3 during the cold and flu season. The control group received a placebo.

The participants in the vitamin D group had a 58 percent reduced risk of flu.

Vitamin D3 is a natural treatment for flu infections and it allows your body to create cathelicidin, an antibiotic protein that eliminates bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses.

Vitamin D levels of 30 to 50 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL) in your blood are believed to be enough, but research has found that levels of about 50 to 100 ng/mL are essential to prevent infection.

You can get vitamin D by following a healthy diet full of food sources of vitamin D, and through exposure to sunlight. However, it is essential to take supplements during the winter season. Consider 5,000 to 10,000 IU daily, or follow the instructions of your naturopathic physician.

If you already have the flu, your physician may recommend you take 50,000 IU daily for the first five days, then take 5,000 to 10,000 IU as a maintenance dose, but this depends entirely on your current blood levels, so get your blood tested by a competent clinical practitioner first.

Silver

According to a study from the Journal of Nanotechnology, silver nanoparticles kill HIV-1 and most kinds of viruses. Researchers who conducted the study incubated HIV-1 virus at 37 C and results revealed that silver particles killed 100 percent of the virus after only three hours.

Silver binds to the DNA of the virus cell, which prevents it from multiplying.

Silver prevents a virus from transferring from one person to another by hindering its ability to find a host cell to feed on. Without a host, viruses can’t survive.

Use colloidal silver at doses of 10 to 20 ppm (parts per million) to prevent infections. It is best to use nanoparticle silver.

Anti-viral foods

Aside from taking vitamins C and D and colloidal silver, eating anti-viral foods is one of the best ways to protect yourself against infectious diseases.

The foods below offer strong anti-viral properties.

  • Cilantro
  • Coconut oil
  • Fennel
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Kale
  • Parsley
  • Pomegranates
  • Red clover
  • Sprouts
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Turmeric
  • Wild blueberries

Exercise regularly to maintain your physical health and wash your hands thoroughly to maintain proper hygiene. Follow a balanced diet and take supplements to boost your immune system and protect yourself against the dreaded coronavirus.

Robert Bissett 01March2020

A positive article with reasonable suggestions. Below is a list for any flu season I’ve put together from the best sources I could find and from experience. First, maintain a positive attitude. Be rational; don’t buy into the fear. Almost every media story has an emotional approach. Pandemic is a scarey word, but what are the facts? Johns Hopkins is keeping track and reports this morning, Mar 1, 72 cases of Covid19, one death. The man who died was in his 50’s with underlying medical conditions. Older people, especially those with chronic illnesses such as heart or lung disease, are especially vulnerable. The CDC estimates 32,000,000 – 45,000,000 flu illnesses October 1, 2019, through February 22, 2020 with 18,000 – 46,000 flu deaths. 1 billion flu cases worldwide. A typical flu season. Why isn’t that in the news? It puts things in perspective. All flu illnesses will decrease with the coming of spring. Be well, America.

What to do now?
Avoid crowds, theater, sports, etc.
Limit trips to super market, etc.
Maintain six feet distance from anyone coughing/sneezing
Standard surgical mask, some help
N95 respirator, no beard, 95%, goggles,
Wash hands, face, sanitizer
Nasal spray, neti pot, saltwater solution
Rest, fluids

The Science?
Vaccine recommended 6 mo. and up
Up to a year away for Covid19
Antigenic drift may occur, less effective
Frey, et al, 2010…6% vaxed got flu; 9% unvaxed got it
Less effective for elderly
Zinc…lozenges, tablets, syrup may help
Vitamin C…some help
Vitamin D3/K2…some help
Probiotics…weak
Echinacea…not proven

Isolation, quarantine and social distancing: Practice these essential strategies to stop the spread of coronavirus

18March2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-03-18-social-distancing-strategies-to-stop-the-spread-of-coronavirus.html

(Natural News) Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continue to skyrocket in America, and authorities around the world advise the general public to practice strategies like isolation, self-quarantine and social distancing. But what are the differences between these strategies, and when should you practice them?

Why these strategies are necessary

In America, testing for coronavirus started slow. The authorities first attempted to those who tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.

Now, public health experts advise that it is crucial is to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. This ensures that those who need medical attention don’t overwhelm hospitals.

If data from the experience of other countries battling the coronavirus pandemic holds, most of the infected patients will only have mild cases. However, findings from other countries also suggest that around 10 to 20 percent of patients could have more severe cases of the disease.

Judging from the data, at least tens of millions of Americans may get infected with coronavirus, and hundreds of thousands of patients may require hospital care.

Joshua Sharfstein, vice dean for public health practice and community engagement at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health, explained that a deluge of patients will overwhelm the health system. Practicing measures like social distancing can help America avoid Italy’s current struggles.

In Italy, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases quickly catapulted from only several patients to over 27,000 cases. More than 2,100 deaths have been confirmed in the country.

It is believed that the accelerated spread of coronavirus in Italy was partly due to aggressive testing. Additionally, hospitals in the northern part of the country were gradually running out of beds in intensive care units.

The difference between self-quarantining and self-monitoring

According to health experts, the two strategies overlap.

Both self-quarantining and self-monitoring have one goal: To keep individuals “who have been exposed, or who might have been exposed, away from others as much as possible” for a certain length of time.

In the case of coronavirus, this often means 14 days or the suspected incubation period of the disease. However, patients may experience symptoms only several days after exposure.

When self-monitoring, you need to regularly check your temperature and take note of any signs of respiratory illness, like a cough, fever or shortness of breath. You also need to limit your interaction with other people.

For example, if you attended a company conference and a person that you weren’t in close contact with tested positive for coronavirus, you need to self-monitor. Dr. Marcus Plescia, chief medical officer for the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, added that you need to self-quarantine if you talked to the infected attendee or if they accidentally sneezed on you.

Self-quarantine is one level higher from self-monitoring because the person at risk of infection, even if they still haven’t experienced symptoms, is at greater risk of exposure. To illustrate, Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister, is self-quarantining since his wife tested positive for coronavirus after they returned from a trip to Great Britain.

If you’re quarantined, you need to stay at home and avoid other people whenever possible for 14 days.

Those who live with a family or roommates but want to self-quarantine must stay in their own room or spend time in a separate area in their house. A person in self-quarantine must also stay at home.

Dr. Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, warned that people in self-quarantine shouldn’t sleep in the same bedroom as other family members. You should also try to use a separate toilet, if possible.

If you’ve self-quarantined due to possible exposure and you develop a cough, fever or shortness of breath, contact a healthcare professional, local hospital or the public health department for further instructions.

If you have mild symptoms, you may be instructed to rest at home and treat your symptoms natural cures. People with more severe symptoms and those in higher-risk groups, like the elderly and the immuno-compromised, may be directed elsewhere to seek medical care.

Once test kits become more available, you may be required to visit a place where you can get tested.

Isolation for coronavirus

If you test positive for coronavirus, the first step will be to isolate you at home or in the hospital, said Benjamin. He added that infectious disease precautions will become “much more rigid than in self-quarantine.”

Medical staff looking after you will require more protective gear. While in isolation, you need to wear a mask when leaving your room or traveling from home to a medical facility so you don’t spread droplets that might contain the virus.

Coronavirus and quarantines

Quarantines are necessary when under state or federal law, individuals or groups are on lockdown.

To illustrate, passengers from cruise ships where other passengers were infected with coronavirus and other travelers who didn’t experience symptoms were told to stay at military bases for 14 days to see if they developed the disease.

While America hasn’t closed off entire towns or cities since the 1918-1919 Spanish flu, the federal government and the states have the power to do so.

Preventing infections with social distancing

Social distancing covers a broad category.

It involves preventive practices such as:

  • Staying home if you feel sick
  • Postponing social visits
  • Avoiding crowds
  • Not shaking hands
  • Standing several feet from other people in public
  • Staying away from nursing homes, retirement or long-term care facilities to keep those at risk safe
  • Using drive-through, pick up or delivery options and not dining in at restaurants
  • Going to the grocery store during off-peak hours

Businesses can also practice social distancing by staggering work hours or letting employees work from home. On the other hand, governments can do it by ordering schools to close.

Sporting events may be canceled, while concert halls, museums and theaters where large groups of people gather can temporarily close their doors. (Related: Social distancing and early testing could have PREVENTED 95% of all coronavirus cases in China.)

Christopher Mores, a professor in the department of global health at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University, advised that with social distancing, it’s important to be aware of how closely you interact with others on a regular day.

Mores added that social distancing should teach the public how to effectively “break the lines of transmission” during a pandemic.

Why these strategies are crucial even if you’re not sick

It may seem like the individual risk is low while the inconvenience of some measures is high, but taking these precautionary measures will benefit everyone in the end, explained Sharfstein.

Even if you don’t get infected, you can still pass the infection to your family, officemates or even fellow commuters on the subway. The people you could infect may then require hospitalization, which could easily overwhelm hospital staff already caring for newborns, those with cancer or the survivors of car accidents.

Sharfstein concluded that even if the coronavirus pandemic isn’t a threat to healthy individuals, not doing your part can make the disease “a threat to the community.”

Stay at home, wash your hands regularly, and remain calm. You can get through a pandemic if you stay informed and practice strategies like social distancing.

The Lessons We Have Learned From The Coronavirus So Far…

by Tyler Durden 14February2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/lessons-we-have-learned-coronavirus-so-far

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

Every disaster contains a lesson or a message that needs to be examined. Every tragedy, no matter how terrible, should be absorbed into the public consciousness and adopted as a cautionary tale; a part of our mythos. These events should not be cast into the memory hole to make life less stressful, they need to be taken seriously. Otherwise, the damage done and the lives lost are all for nothing.

Covid-19 virus checkpoint

Refusing to examine the dark side of life and its dangers has become a staple of our society, to the point that it has given birth to a kind of religious cult. Naive optimism has become a virtue, a misplaced form of faith that encourages people to remain oblivious in the face of adversity. And the more precarious our system becomes, the more these people see unicorns and rainbows. It is truly bizarre.

Some of us understand the mechanics of our economic, political and social machine and recognize that they are broken. The system cannot be fixed because it has been corrupted by people with evil intent (globalists); it is designed to fail. The agenda? To crash almost everything and then replace it with a centralized behemoth, a global empire. The intent is to force the masses to accept this “new world order” using a false choice – We can have chaos and death, or “order” through total Orwellian control. Peace, sovereignty and freedom are not offered as choices.

As Richard N. Gardner, former deputy assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations under Kennedy and Johnson, and a member of the Trilateral Commission, wrote in the April, 1974 issue of the Council on Foreign Relation’s (CFR) journal Foreign Affairs (pg. 558) in an article titled ‘Hard Road To World Order’:

In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”

The answer offered to every disaster is always more centralization, even if centralization was part of the problem from the beginning. The coronavirus pandemic event will be no different.

As was hinted at during Event 201, a coronavirus pandemic exercise run by Johns Hopkins, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum only three months before a REAL coronavirus outbreak took place in China, the goal will be to use the event to create a central economic authority to distribute resources to “counter the virus”. You see, the elites never let a good crisis go to waste.

But this plan requires complicity and apathy among the public. It requires our consent in order to work. For if we continue to undermine and resist it the globalists will never feel safe and secure. Like a cancer, they will eventually have to be cut out and removed if the system is to ever be truly fixed.

The pandemic might be an opportunity for the elites, but it is also a learning experience for the rest of us, and it might even bring some clarity to issues that have been hotly debated for several years. But what are some of these lessons?

Lesson #1: The Prepper Movement Was Right All Along

Over the past decade I have seen some extremely odd responses to the prepper movement, including a lot of aggression and hostility not to mention numerous hit pieces and hatchet jobs in the media. What is it about individuals being prepared for a potential crisis that sends so many snowflakes into a meltdown? Why do they care?

If you think that survivalism is all “conspiracy” and “doom and gloom” then why not ignore it like you ignore everything else? If preppers were wrong, then nothing happens, and all we did is spend some of our money on supplies that we will use anyway over time. No harm no foul. Yet, the mainstream acts as if the preparedness mindset is a criminal action that damages the rest of society.

Of course, as we can see from the coronavirus event in China, preppers were right all along. Almost every single potential problem we have warned about and written about over the years is now plaguing the Chinese citizenry, and most of these problems could have been solved by prepared citizenry.

Over 600 million people in China are now under lockdown; essentially martial law. Supply lines are dwindling in some areas, food is limited, medical treatment is nonexistent for many. The people in quarantine are completely dependent on the government for their survival and that same government has been systematically dragging people out of their homes and forcing them into makeshift “hospitals” (prisons) where they are almost certain to become infected. If ever there was a scenario where prepping was called for, this is it.

I can’t recall how many times I’ve heard people argue that prepping is “pointless” and that all our concerns over a crisis event are “overblown”, but we are now facing a pandemic in modern times, not to mention possible economic collapse. The only argument these people can make now is that the virus “won’t spread to the West”, but that is an assumption based on blind faith rather than science or logic.  And even if it ends up being correct, what does it hurt to prepare anyway?

Lesson #2: Supply Lines Will Be Damaged Or Restricted

As noted above, preparedness is the first step to solving most problems, because most crisis events tend to result in similar consequences. In China, food and other goods are being rationed and supply lines in some areas are shut down completely. The only option is to have what you need BEFORE a breakdown occurs.

In the US, retailers are dependent on highly coordinated “just in time” freight networks that supply only what a store needs for normal shopping traffic for the week. In the wake of a calamity, stores will empty in a matter of a couple days. If freight lines are slowed down or cut off because travel is restricted due to viral outbreak, then what you have in your home is basically all you will have until the restrictions are lifted. After studying the history of plagues and pandemics, I would conclude that the average viral event will last at least 1 year, sometimes longer. The Spanish Flu of 1918 did not burn out in the US for two years.

Anyone who claims the coronavirus will be gone in a matter of a couple of months is probably lying, or is making ignorant assumptions. Prepare for the long haul if the pandemic hits US shores hard.

Lesson #3: Never Trust Government

All governments lie. They will claim they do this to “protect us from ourselves” and to “avoid panic”, but politicians and elites do not care about this. They do not lie to protect society, they lie to maintain power and control, and sometimes, they lie because they want to keep the public docile and vulnerable. For, the more inactive and vulnerable we are, the more dependent we will all be on them when disaster strikes.

The viral outbreak in China has thoroughly illustrated why governments cannot be trusted. China has consistently lied about the infection and death rate surrounding the coronavirus. Numerous health officials in China have leaked information indicating the threat is FAR larger than the government admits. Some of these brave people been punished or have died in the process of trying to warn the rest of the world.

Currently, China is claiming a minimal and slowing infection rate, but on the Japanese cruise ship Diamond Princess, we have a large scale example of the coronavirus in action.  The 3700 passengers of the Diamond Princess are being slowly tested for the virus, and authorities have found at least 175 people infected out of 490 tested so far.  That’s an infection rate of at least 35%!  Some people may argue that a cruise ship is close quarters and so the infection rate would be higher, but your average Chinese city is also very close quarters.  The data coming from the Diamond Princess suggests that the Chinese are lying extensively about the scale of the outbreak.

With hospitals completely overwhelmed by a 30% to 35% infection rate, the quality of care would collapse and many people would die.

The Chinese government has resorted to censorship and threats in order to keep the citizenry quiet. This includes punishing people who are accused of “posting rumors” about the true extent of the damage caused by the virus and the threats have been specifically directed at medical staff that are the closest witnesses to the outbreak. The overall purpose of the lockdown appears to be an attempt to suppress the real infection rate and death rate.  The mass quarantine itself allows the government to streamline the cover-up; they can more easily imprison the sick and then dispose of their bodies with less public observation, and they never have to report the real death statistics.

If the government has nothing to hide, then why try to restrict all information coming from professionals on the ground? They claim they want “transparency” after the debacle that was their response to the SARS outbreak in 2003, but obviously this is not true.

Do not think for one second that this would not happen here in the US or in Europe either. We have already heard Donald Trump dismiss the virus threat on multiple occasions, and if it does strike here, do not be surprised if Trump’s response is as draconian as China’s. To understand why, read my article ‘Trump Cannot Be Anti-Globalist While Working With Global Elites’.

Lesson #4: Expect The Virus To Eventually Arrive In Your Country

In the US, the argument from the apathetic crowd is that we only have 12 cases, so what is there to worry about? I would remind those folks that the ONLY people that have actually been tested for coronavirus in the US are people that have arrived specifically from China in the past few weeks, who are showing symptoms and who voluntarily bring up this fact to health officials.

This means that people who come from Singapore, Thailand or any other nation in Asia that has also been exposed to the virus have likely not been tested at all. With a dormancy period of two weeks (and according to some studies up to 24 DAYS), the coronavirus has no symptoms yet it can still be highly contagious.

I would also point out that hospitals nationwide have been given a very limited supply of coronavirus tests (only 200 tests nationwide), some of which have been proven faulty, so, if the outbreak becomes prominent, they won’t be able to give an accurate number of infection cases anyway.

We are in the early stages of this pandemic. I definitely would not give the all clear yet. Unless the US government plans to shut down ALL flights into the US right now, there is no way to prevent the outbreak from coming here in the long run.

Lesson #5: Enforced Quarantine Is Not Necessarily For Your Benefit

As I noted in my article ‘How Viral Pandemic Benefits The Globalist Agenda’, there are many times in which the establishment creates crisis events deliberately, or, they exploit natural crisis events to further their agenda. In the midst of a viral outbreak, most people given the proper information and warning would prepare.  They would stock supplies and self isolate (or group isolate if they are organized) until the infection burns out. But this is not what the establishment wants. They do not want people who are independent and self reliant during a disaster; they want people that are completely unprepared and dependent.

This is why they will continue to lie about the extent of the danger until it is too late. This is why it took the UN’s World Health Organization at least two months of the coronavirus spreading through China before they finally admitted there might be a crisis in the making. And, this why forced quarantine will be used to push people out of their homes and into centralized areas where they will be more susceptible to infection, not less.

Take the example in China to heart, because it may be exactly what we face in the near future. The point being – If you and your neighborhood or community already have a plan in place to survive an outbreak, do not allow government to interfere with it, because your chances of getting sick or dead grow with every moment of government involvement. Remember, these are the same people that tried to keep you in the dark about the danger; they are not to be relied upon or cooperated with.

Lesson #6: Expect Martial Law

If a viral outbreak spreads through the west, do not be surprised if martial law measures are implemented. If you live in a major city and you see or hear about checkpoints being set up, get out immediately. As we’ve seen in China, once the walls are put up you will not be able to get out.

Rural areas are less likely to be effectively locked down by authorities because it would require too many personnel to achieve this. Major population centers on the other hand will be easily cut off.

There is a question here of how to respond. Should Americans go along with martial law? Would it be for the “greater good”? I am highly skeptical. Like I said, all governments lie and they lie to control, not to help. If martial law measures are interfering with an effective quarantine that individuals or communities have already put in place, and if the government is putting you at risk, then you might have to fight back.

At least in the US we have the means to do this if necessary. You will not be seeing many people dragged from their homes as easily as they are in China right now. Frankly, if I was a CDC or FEMA employee trying to force people into centralized quarantine I would fear for my life as last I checked those hazmat suits are not bullet proof.

Hopefully, we will get lucky, this will not be the case and the coronavirus stays primarily overseas. If it doesn’t, though, then expect that everything that is happening in China today will happen here tomorrow.

How The Pandemic Crisis Will Probably Develop Over The Next Year

04 March 2020 Brandon Smith http://alt-market.com/index.php/articles/4133-how-the-pandemic-crisis-will-probably-develop-over-the-next-year

 

For a while now I have been hearing it said that Americans are “in a panic” over the coronavirus outbreak in the US, and that mainstream media outlets are “feeding the fear”.  This is an odd conclusion to come to and something worth noting, because the truth is mostly the opposite.  For the past couple of months the WHO, the CDC and even Donald Trump have been dismissing Covid 19 as nothing much to worry about.  The WHO actually still refuses to call it a pandemic even though the virus meets all of their own criteria.

Until recently the mainstream media was also been pumping out article after article on why Covid 19 is “no more dangerous than the flu”.  With the official death rate at 2.3% to 3% (changing by the week), the virus already has higher mortality than the average flu.  If we take into account the fact that multiple medical professionals within China have revealed (despite threats of punishment) that the Chinese government is hiding the true (and much higher) death and infection statistics, then the official data goes out the window.  We can’t even trust the infection numbers from the CDC in the US, because they been refusing to test most people unless they have recently traveled to China.

Because of government lies we have to assume that the crisis is more pervasive than we know.  And so far the average American is oblivious to it.

While we do see a handful of videos of crowds stockpiling supplies at Costco or Walmart, there simple is not enough of them.  Frankly, I would prefer to see a nationwide rush to stock up on necessities; at least then we would know that a large number of people will not starve immediately following a supply chain disruption.  The more people that have supplies, the less desperation and potential crime there will be.

Only in the past week have the media and certain government representatives suddenly decided to take the pandemic issue seriously.  Why wait until there are large community outbreaks in South Korea, Iran and Italy before instituting some travel guidelines?   Why are flights still moving back and forth from these places to the US?  Why is Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow telling the country that the pandemic “is contained” and there’s no threat to the economy?  Why is the Surgeon General of the US telling people to ‘Stop buying N95 masks’ because they will not work for you; they only work for medical and CDC professionals?  This is warped fuzzy logic, and it’s bizarre.

I believe this behavior is quite deliberate, and that for the past two months there has been a conspiracy to downplay the danger and keep as many people as possible passive and unprepared.  Governments and the media have changed their tune in the past week because the threat can no longer be hidden.  The outbreak is here, as we have seen in Washington State where nine people have died already.

So, now that there is no longer any question that the US will experience outbreak conditions, we have to ask how this will play out over the coming months because this will determine how we prepare and what problems we will face.  This is how I see the pandemic escalating in 2020…

Multiple Community Outbreaks In The US

Get ready for Washington State to become a large community infection event involving thousands of people.  The virus’ incubation period of up to 24 days while a person is still contagious makes isolation and quarantine impossible.  What is happening in Washington State will happen in other states.

Going by the speed of the outbreaks in Italy and South Korea, it is likely that two weeks from now the American public will finally realize how bad the situation actually is.  The government at this stage will demand “voluntary quarantine” of individuals who think they might have the virus.  Testing will finally increase, though hospitals will have to test each person 2-3 times to get accurate results.  Expect a lot of false negatives that end up ultimately as positives for the infection.

The government, while admitting that the virus is spreading, will continue to downplay the threat to keep people as apathetic as they can.  The authorities will clam that this was done “for the greater good” in order to avoid mass panic, but they don’t care about preventing “panic”, they care about control.  The more desperate people are in the aftermath of a crisis the more likely they are to trade their freedoms for some semblance of security.

Travel Lockdown

Within the next two months we will probably see at least a handful of government enforced quarantines.  Watch for checkpoints going up on main roads and highways testing for fever and symptoms, and if you live in a high population area it may be time to get out.  The biggest threat may not be the virus but the subsequent economic crash as supply lines are cut off.  I find most people are more driven by conscience than we often see displayed in movies and TV shows, but without organization and a move to become self sustainable, some people will inevitably turn to violence to get what they need.

In the span of perhaps three months, the majority of airline flights out of the US will stop.  All interstate travel will be restricted.  If you need to go somewhere other than where you currently live, now would be the opportunity to do it.

Vaccine Promises

There will be hundreds of announcements by government officials and the media hinting that a vaccine is “right around the corner”.  Don’t believe it.  On average a vaccine takes 1 year to develop at minimum.  That is the fastest it could be accomplished an this is under the best possible circumstances.  Also, keep in mind that Covid-19 has many similarities to SARS, and the last time they tried to develop a vaccine for SARS it caused an “immunopathologic lung reaction” in test animals, meaning a negative reaction that can cause death.  They also found the vaccine caused liver damage through hepatitis.  I would not trust any vaccine or drug cocktail coming from the CDC and FEMA, especially if it is fast-tracked into existence.

The only purpose to constantly injecting vaccine promises into the public consciousness would be to give people false hope and to make them docile as they sit inactive waiting for the authorities to save the day; as well as to keep stock markets from plunging too fast.  The bottom line is, a vaccine can take up to ten years to produce, one year if there is a massive effort and mountains of money invested.  There will be no legitimate vaccine in 2020.

Election Disruption…

 … The Extent Of The Crash

An economic crash is built into this event.  There is no way around it, and I am not simply talking about stock markets, which are a meaningless trailing indicator.  With supply chain and labor disruptions central banks can do nothing to intervene, and stimulus measures would be pointless except as a placebo for the masses.  But how bad will it actually get?

I am doubtful of total breakdown of government unless there is a larger scale rebellion against martial law measures.  The system will remain somewhat functional, but constantly inadequate to help the public.  The system’s only purpose will be to keep people inactive and in check as their prospects turn worse and worse.  Agencies like FEMA and the CDC will attempt to herd the public into “treatment centers” and camps in the worst hit areas.  Gun confiscation on the grounds of “national emergency” provisions will eventually be suggested as some people will resist.  If you and your community have had success in self quarantine do not expect to be left alone.  In fact, expect interference that will put you and your community at risk.

Finally, a “solution” will be presented to the world by global institutions like the WHO and the IMF.  As the globalists suggested in their “Event 201” pandemic exercise which simulated a coronavirus outbreak killing 65 million people and was staged TWO MONTHS before the real pandemic started, the great fix will be to form a global financial authority to manage the response.  And thus we see the beginning of global governance…

The solution to the problem is not more centralization, more globalization and more government power; the solution is decentralization and localized response.  The solution is for people to be less dependent on the system and more self sufficient.  And, the solution is self quarantine organized around a local model, not federal government enforcement.  If these measures are not taken soon by individuals with foresight, the elites within the establishment will make this particular crisis into a hell on earth for everyone.

It Begins: Hawaii Stores Empty Out On Coronavirus “Panic Buying”

by Tyler Durden 02/27/2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/it-begins-hawaii-stores-empty-out-coronavirus-panic-buying

Hawaii is urging residents to prepare for a potential breakout of Covid-19 amid new warnings earlier this week from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that the deadly virus quickly spreading across the world could cause a “significant disruption” to American life.

Although there are no confirmed virus cases in Hawaii (the state Health Department says 80 people are self-monitoring for the coronavirus in Hawaii after recent travel to China), the CDC’s warning sparked a buying frenzy among residents this week as they emptied store shelves of food and supplies.

Twitter handle @zoeywoeyzoey said, “Hawaii Sam’s club is sold out of toilet paper hand sanitizer alcohol.”


Hawaii Sam's club is sold out of toilet paper hand sanitizer alcohol
KHON Honolulu said flatbed carts “were overflowing with boxes of canned goods, bottled water, toilet paper, and paper towels” at Costco’s Iwilei location.


“The essentials toilet paper, paper towels, bottles of water, soap, a lot of Clorox stuff, cleaning supplies… I figure with all the coronavirus scare and everything, it’s better to be safe than sorry,” said Honolulu resident Keane Zakimi.

Hawaii Foodbank told KHON that residents are panic buying non-perishable foods and medical masks. They said the same fear that is seen in Asia has now spread to Hawaii.

 

 

“If there’s no inventory at the store, then there’s very little for stores to donate to the Foodbank and also at home if you’re stocking up and hoarding for your family, the last thing you’re thinking about is making a donation. It impacts us in a very great way,” said Hawaii Foodbank President Ron Mizutani.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser said retailers across the state are experiencing shortages of 3M N95 masks. We noted last month that masks were selling out across the US. Prices of the masks have doubled or tripled since mid-January.

It’s only a matter of time before a virus case is confirmed in the state, and this could lead to an epic bust of its top industry: tourism, resulting in a recession for the island economy.

At Stores Across The Country, The Panic Coronavirus Hoarding Begins

Tyler Durden 01March2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/meanwhile-costco-brooklyn-hoarding-begins

Update (March 1): Increasing fear of a Covid-19 outbreak has forced many Americans out of their homes and millennials from their parents’ basements to panic buy food at Costco stores across the country this weekend:

01March2020-Increasing fear of a Covid-19 outbreak has forced many Americans out of their homes and millennials from their parents’ basements to panic buy food at Costco stores across the country this weekend

Mass fear of the corona virus cause people to panic and stock up on water, toilet paper and Clorox wipes at all the Costco stores. Crazy

And So On…

MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW is coming to America

Compare the Novel Coronavirus with the European Black Death

The Black Death took 8 years to spread throughout Europe and kill 30% – 60% of the population. So in prespective we have little to worry about.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Death

The Black Death, also known as the Pestilence (Pest for short), the Great Plague or the Plague, or less commonly the Black Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in Eurasia, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.[1][2][3] The bacterium Yersinia pestis, which results in several forms of plague (septicemic, pneumonic and, the most common, bubonic) is believed to have been the cause.[4] The Black Death was the first major European outbreak of plague and the second plague pandemic.[5] The plague created a number of religious, social and economic upheavals, with profound effects on the course of European history.

The Black Death is thought to have originated in the dry plains of Central Asia or East Asia, where it travelled along the Silk Road, reaching Crimea by 1343.[6] From there, it was most likely carried by fleas living on the black rats that traveled on all merchant ships, spreading throughout the Mediterranean Basin and Europe.

The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe’s population.[7] In total, the plague may have reduced the world population from an estimated 475 million to 350–375 million in the 14th century.[8] It took 200 years for the world population to recover to its previous level.[9] The plague recurred as outbreaks in Europe until the 19th century.

Visualizing The History Of Pandemics… By Death Toll

by Tyler Durden 15March2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/health/visualizing-history-pandemics

Pan·dem·ic /panˈdemik/ (of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or the world.

As humans have spread across the world, so have infectious diseases. In fact, as Visual Cpitalist’s Nicholas LePan notes, even in this modern era, outbreaks are nearly constant, though not every outbreak reaches pandemic level as the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has.

Today’s visualization outlines some of history’s most deadly pandemics, from the Antonine Plague to the current COVID-19 event.

history’s most deadly pandemics

A Timeline of Historical Pandemics

Disease and illnesses have plagued humanity since the earliest days, our mortal flaw. However, it was not until the marked shift to agrarian communities that the scale and spread of these diseases increased dramatically.

Widespread trade created new opportunities for human and animal interactions that sped up such epidemics. Malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, influenza, smallpox, and others first appeared during these early years.

The more civilized humans became – with larger cities, more exotic trade routes, and increased contact with different populations of people, animals, and ecosystems – the more likely pandemics would occur.

Here are some of the major pandemics that have occurred over time:

Here are some of the major pandemics that have occurred over time:

Note: Many of the death toll numbers listed above are best estimates based on available research. Some, such as the Plague of Justinian, are subject to debate based on new evidence.

Despite the persistence of disease and pandemics throughout history, there’s one consistent trend over time – a gradual reduction in the death rate. Healthcare improvements and understanding the factors that incubate pandemics have been powerful tools in mitigating their impact.

Wrath of the Gods

In many ancient societies, people believed that spirits and gods inflicted disease and destruction upon those that deserved their wrath. This unscientific perception often led to disastrous responses that resulted in the deaths of thousands, if not millions.

In the case of Justinian’s plague, the Byzantine historian Procopius of Caesarea traced the origins of the plague (the Yersinia pestis bacteria) to China and northeast India, via land and sea trade routes to Egypt where it entered the Byzantine Empire through Mediterranean ports.

Despite his apparent knowledge of the role geography and trade played in this spread, Procopius laid blame for the outbreak on the Emperor Justinian, declaring him to be either a devil, or invoking God’s punishment for his evil ways. Some historians found that this event could have dashed Emperor Justinian’s efforts to reunite the Western and Eastern remnants of the Roman Empire, and marked the beginning of the Dark Ages.

Luckily, humanity’s understanding of the causes of disease has improved, and this is resulting in a drastic improvement in the response to modern pandemics, albeit slow and incomplete.

Importing Disease

The practice of quarantine began during the 14th century, in an effort to protect coastal cities from plague epidemics. Cautious port authorities required ships arriving in Venice from infected ports to sit at anchor for 40 days before landing — the origin of the word quarantine from the Italian “quaranta giorni”, or 40 days.

One of the first instances of relying on geography and statistical analysis was in mid-19th century London, during a cholera outbreak. In 1854, Dr. John Snow came to the conclusion that cholera was spreading via tainted water and decided to display neighborhood mortality data directly on a map. This method revealed a cluster of cases around a specific pump from which people were drawing their water from.

While the interactions created through trade and urban life play a pivotal role, it is also the virulent nature of particular diseases that indicate the trajectory of a pandemic.

Tracking Infectiousness

Scientists use a basic measure to track the infectiousness of a disease called the reproduction number — also known as R0 or “R naught.” This number tells us how many susceptible people, on average, each sick person will in turn infect.

Measles tops the list, being the most contagious with a R0 range of 12-18. This means a single person can infect, on average, 12 to 18 people in an unvaccinated population.

While measles may be the most virulent, vaccination efforts and herd immunity can curb its spread. The more people are immune to a disease, the less likely it is to proliferate, making vaccinations critical to prevent the resurgence of known and treatable diseases.

It’s hard to calculate and forecast the true impact of COVID-19, as the outbreak is still ongoing and researchers are still learning about this new form of coronavirus.

Urbanization and the Spread of Disease

We arrive at where we began, with rising global connections and interactions as a driving force behind pandemics. From small hunting and gathering tribes to the metropolis, humanity’s reliance on one another has also sparked opportunities for disease to spread.

Urbanization in the developing world is bringing more and more rural residents into denser neighborhoods, while population increases are putting greater pressure on the environment. At the same time, passenger air traffic nearly doubled in the past decade. These macro trends are having a profound impact on the spread of infectious disease.

As organizations and governments around the world ask for citizens to practice social distancing to help reduce the rate of infection, the digital world is allowing people to maintain connections and commerce like never before.

Editor’s Note: The COVID-19 pandemic is in its early stages and it is obviously impossible to predict its future impact. This post and infographic are meant to provide historical context, and we will continue to update it as time goes on to maintain its accuracy.

UNIVERSAL PRAYER TO BE SAVED FROM CORONAVIRUS

By YD Bergman 06February2020 https://ravberland.com/breaking-prayer-to-be-saved-from-coronavirus/

The World Is Hanging By A Thread

This morning (Thursday) after finishing his morning learning schedule and immersing in the mikvah, Rebbi Eliezer Berland shlit”a said in a stern voice:

“There’s a terrible decree of world destruction by the Coronavirus.”

The Rav went on to explain that all of humanity including animals and plants are in danger of complete destruction.

And began quickly stating gematrias as to the spiritual cause of this terrible illness. Among others ben adam l’chaveiro the commandment which includes all interpersonal laws has the same numerical value as corona in Hebrew 363.

Open hearing this and seeing the look of concern on the Rabbi’s face, his attendant asked, “What should we do?”

Rav Berland answered:

“We will write a prayer and the decree will be cancelled. The prayer should be translated in all languages and read all over the world. With that the virus it will leave as quickly as it came leaving no trace behind.”

=====================================================================================

Here is the prayer:

PRAYER TO BE SAVED FROM CORONAVIRUS

Master of Universe, who can do anything!

Cure me and the whole world of the Coronavirus, because redemption is near.

And through this reveal to us the 50th gate of holiness, the secret of the ibbur, and may we begin from this day onward to be strong in keeping interpersonal commandments (i.e. being kind to others).

And by virtue of this may we witness miracles and wonders the likes of which haven’t been since the creation of the world. And may there be sweetening of judgments for the entire world, to all mankind, men women and children.

Please God! Please cure Coronavirus all over the world, as it says about Miriam the prophetess, “Lord, please, cure her, please.”

Please God! Who can do anything! Send a complete healing to the entire world! To all men, women, children, boys and girls, to all humanity wherever they may be, and to all the animals, birds, and creatures. All should be cured from this disease in the blink of an eye, and no trace of the disease should remain.

And all will merit fear of Heaven and fear of God, O Merciful and Compassionate Father.

Please God, please do with us miracles and wonders as you did with our forefathers by the exodus from Egypt. And now, take us and the entire world out from this disease, release us and save us from the Coronavirus that wants to eliminate all mortals.

We now regret all the sins that we did, and we honestly ask for forgiveness. And in the merit of our repentance, this cursed disease, that does not miss men, women, boys, girls, and animals, will be eliminated.

Please God, as quick as the illness came it will go away and disappear immediately, in the blink of an eye, and by this the soul of Messiah Ben David will be revealed.

Please God, grant us the merit to be included in the level of the saints and pure ones, and bless anew all the fruit and vegetation, that all will be healed in the blink of an eye, and we will see Messiah Ben David face to face.

Please God, who acts with greatness beyond comprehension, and does wonders without number. Please now perform also with us miracles and wonders beyond comprehension and let no trace of this cursed disease remain. And may the entire world be cured in the blink of an eye.

Because Hashem did all this in order for us to repent, it is all in order for us to direct our hearts to our Father in Heaven, and by that He will send blessings and success to all of our handiwork.

MESSAGE FROM THE GADOL HADOR: Rav Chaim Kanievsky’s Instructions on How to Protect Yourself and Loved Ones

March 13, 2020 https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/1839688/message-from-the-gadol-hador-rav-chaim-kanievskys-instructions-on-how-to-protect-yourself-and-loved-ones.html

THE GADOL HADOR: Rav Chaim Kanievsky

The following letter was written by Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita regarding protection from the Corona Pandemic. It was translated and annotated by Rabbi Yair Hoffman for the 5TJT.com.

Rav Kanievsky’s words are in boldface. Rabbi Yair Hoffman’s additions are in italics and in plain type. Rabbi Hoffman’s additions are the background that is necessary to understand Rav Chaim’s words. May we all have yeshuos. YH

BS”D

Adar 5780

Regarding the concern of transmission of the Corona Virus Pandemic

Everyone must be mechazek to refrain from Lashon Harah and rechilus as it states in Arachin 15b: [Why is a leper so different, that the Torah states: “He shall dwell alone; outside of the camp shall be his dwelling” (Vayikrah 13:46)? He (Rabbi Chaninah) answered: By speaking badly] he separated between a husband and wife and between one person and another; therefore he is punished with tzara’as, and the Torah says: “He shall dwell alone; outside of the camp shall be his dwelling.”

They must further strengthen themselves in the midah of humility and to be maavir al midosav (let things slide) as the pirush haRosh on the side of the page says explicitly in the end of Horios [14a],

The Gemorah there cites a debate between Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel and the chachomim as to who is preferable – a Sinai, one who is extremely knowledgeable or an Okair Harim – One who uproots mountains, one who is extremely sharp.

The Gemara explains that this is not just theoretical. Rav Yosef was a Sinai; Rabba was one who uproots mountains. They sent a message from Bavel to Eretz Yisrael: Which takes precedence? They sent in response: Sinai is preferable, as the Master said: Everyone requires the owner of the wheat, i.e., one who is expert in the sources. And even so, Rav Yosef did not accept upon himself the appointment of head of the yeshiva. Rabba did accept it upon himself and he reigned for twenty-two years, and then Rav Yosef reigned. The Gemara relates that in all of those years that Rabba was in charge, Rav Yosef did not even call a bloodletter to his home. Rav Yosef did not assume even the slightest authority, in deference to Rabba.

The Rosh explains in the name of the Ramah that since Rav Yosef lowered himself and did not wish to lord over Rabbah, his humility protected both him and his household members that not any of them became ill all of those years that Rabbah ruled and even an expert bloodletter was not needed to be called to his home.

Whoever strengthens himself in these the merit will protect him and his family members that not one of them will be sick.

תפילה להסרת המגיפה מסין ומכל העולם-Prayer for removing the plague from China and all over the world תפילת המונים – קורונה

 

Prayer on Sunday at the kotel on the residents of China.

לשכת הרב שמואל אליהו
February 13 ·

תפילה ביום א’ בכותל על תושבי סין

“טוֹב ה’ לַכֹּל וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו”. אנו נקראים להתפלל על תושבי סין שנמצאים במצוקה גדולה. עשרות אלפי אנשים נמצאים בבידוד. מיליונים בהסגר. חמישית מתושבי העולם בחרדה גדולה. על כל אחד ואחד מהם נאמר: “חביב אדם שנברא בצלם”.
אנו נקראים להתפלל על תושבי סין, אנו נקראים להתפלל על כל החולים במדינות האחרות. להתפלל על העולם. ביום ראשון (16-2) בשעה 4:30 בכותל המערבי נתפלל כולנו. ויהי רצון שה’ ישמע תפילתנו ויקיים בנו. “וְנִבְרְכוּ בְךָ כָּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה וּבְזַרְעֶךָ”. (בראשית כח יד).
Prayer on Sunday at the kotel on the residents of China.

“Good God to all his actions for all his actions”. we are called to pray for the residents of China who are in great distress. Tens of thousands of people are in solitary. Millions in quarantine. Fifth of the residents of the world with great anxiety. For each and every one of them is said: “Habib Man created in gaffes”.
We are called to pray for the residents of China, we are called to pray for all the sick in the other countries. Pray for the world. On Sunday (16-2) at 4:30 at the western wall we will all pray. May the Lord hear our prayers and support us. “I will support you all the land of the earth”. (Genesis hand power).
Prayer on Sunday at the kotel on the residents of China.



“Tens of thousands of people are in isolation, millions under quarantine,” the rabbi’s press release said. “One fifth of the world’s inhabitants experience great anxiety. About each and every one of them it was said: ‘Beloved is man for he was created in the image [of God]’ (Mishna Avot, 3:14).”

“We are called upon to pray for the people of China,” Rabbi Eliyahu’s message continued. “We are called upon to pray for all the sick in the other countries as well. Pray for the world.”

“On Sunday, February 16, at 4:30 PM, at the Western Wall, we will all pray,” the rabbi urged. “And may God hear our prayer and make true through us the verse ‘In thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed,’ (Genesis 28:14).”

Earlier on Thursday, Rabbi Eliahu posted an exceptionally moving message, saying, “There is a tradition held by the people of Israel, that one blessing draws another. And when there was an epidemic in the nation of Israel, King David taught us to thank and bless every favor we receive from God, and so the plague stopped (II Samuel 24). That gift which we received from King David, we want to pass on to the Chinese people.”

“King David taught us to bless with a song,” Rabbi Eliahu continued, and called on all creative people, “composers, musicians and singers to compose a gift song from Israel to the Chinese people. A song of partnership, of prayer, of blessing.”

Amen.

Sweetening Judgments

23February2020 http://shiratdevorah.blogspot.com/2020/02/sweetening-judgments.html

from the writings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

When the messengers who bring suffering are despatched, they are made to take an oath: that they will neither set out nor return except on such and such a day, at such and such a time, and only [carry out their mission] by using the designated means. However, repentance, prayer and charity have the power to nullify [the enactment of] this oath.

Reciting the Torah chapters concerning the Choshen, the Breastplate [Exodus 28:15-30; 39:8-21] is a tikkun [rectification] for harsh judgments.

A person who suffers affliction should give charity. This charity will be considered as if it were a fee paid to a judge for his services, which when accepted, nullifies the verdict’s validity. And through this his suffering will be alleviated.

When a person rebukes his friend for the right motives, he has a thread of loving-kindness drawn over him.

A person who does not accept rebuke will experience suffering.

To sweeten harsh judgments, recite Psalm 39 and Psalm 77.

When the nations have issued an evil decree against the Jews, Psalm 62 should be said.

A person can determine and understand his sins from the suffering which he experiences.

There are four things which abolish harsh decrees: Tzedakah [charity], crying out to G-d, changing one’s name and improving one’s conduct.

Crying out to G-d helps the individual only prior to the final decree.

A person’s accusers are beaten off by the study of Torah.

A final decree accompanied by an oath cannot be abolished, even for the sake of an entire community.

The effects of a decree against a person apply only in a specific place. He can save himself by changing his location.

A person should tell others of his anguish so that they will pray for mercy on his behalf.

Accepting suffering with love is like bringing a sacrifice.

A person who falls down while walking should see this as a sign of a downfall on a spiritual level. Falling down while walking sometimes serves to nullify a pronouncement of death which has been issued against the person.

A person who finds himself suffering from harsh judgment should make it a habit to gaze at the Heavens.

The Holy One exonerates the person who teaches righteousness to the wicked.

A man of truth receives G-d’s lovingkindness undisguised by judgments.

Trust in G-d sweetens judgment and draws down loving-kindness.

Through faith [emunah] it is possible to convince G-d to follow your will.

Israel’s Sheba Medical Center Develops Telemedicine to Limit Coronavirus Spread

JNS.org – As fears of the growing coronavirus endemic increase worldwide, Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, has developed a groundbreaking way to treat potential patients without risking the health of hospital staff and other patients.

Using a Vici telemedicine system, designed by virtual health-care company Intouch Health, the robot-like apparatus can be controlled by doctors and nurses to enter the infected patient’s room and even monitor the patient’s vital signs, such as heart rate.

“This is one way to use telemedicine to protect our staff,” said Dr. Galia Barkai, head of Telemedicine Services at Sheba Medical Center. “By minimizing direct contact between the patients and medical personnel, we reduce the percentage risk of health-care staff contracting the virus.”

While coronavirus has not yet spread to Israel, Sheba is also prepared with a number of isolation rooms in case multiple patients are infected at the same time in an effort to protect staff and other patients from risk of infection.

“Although we don’t have any positive patients in Israel, we are always dealing with suspected patients and preparing for the worst-case scenario,” said Barkai. “So, we are creating all these systems to help us deal with the occasion when we might have to deal with many patients.”

Sheba will also use the telemedicine application Datos to help treat coronavirus patients who are not as critically ill. This application allows medical professionals to monitor patients from the comfort and isolation of their own homes.

“We would give them our telemedicine application and communicate with them via video at least twice a day,” she said. “This would allow them to stay more comfortably in their homes and reduce risk within the hospital.”

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring the outbreak of the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, and that continues to expand. Chinese health officials have reported tens of thousands of infections, with reports of more than 1,000 deaths in mainland China having been caused by the respiratory ailment.

At a news conference in Geneva on Tuesday, Dr. Michael J. Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization (WHO), said “one clinical trial is already on the way” in China in an attempt to find a cure to the novel coronavirus. He adding that WHO was working with Chinese authorities to implement further clinical trials.

Coronavirus “Perfect Storm” Now Exists Thanks to Biosludge, Open Borders, Filthy Liberal Cities

24January2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-24-coronavirus-perfect-storm-biosludge-open-borders-liberal-cities.html

(Natural News) The horrendously bad decisions of human beings who hold power in government, media and industry have brought the human race to a “perfect storm” of conditions that will strongly contribute to the spread and fatalities of the coronavirus pandemic now threatening the world.

As I relate in an emergency podcast below, the following conditions are now converging into a worst case scenario when trying to stop a pandemic (or a best case scenario for the globalists trying to achieve depopulation):

#1) Open borders policies that allow infected people to walk right across the border into the United States, with no health screening whatsoever.

#2) Sanctuary city policies that protect infected illegals from being discovered or deported.

#3) The widespread practice of biosludge distribution onto food crops. “Biosludge” is the raw human sewage sludge that’s collected by every city in America, slightly dried to reduce water mass, then loaded onto trucks and dumped on nearby farm fields. It’s sold to farmers as “free fertilizer” because it’s rich in nitrogen. It also means that any coronavirus which makes its way into the sewage system will be distributed by U.S. cities onto farm fields, obviously contaminating food crops and multiplying the effects of the pandemic. (See the full documentary at Biosludged.com to learn about biosludge.)

#4) The now-legal practice in Washington State of liquefying dead human bodies and flushing them into the municipal sewage system, where they become biosludge to be spread on crops. This practice was just recently legalized in Washington, and it means the dead will be used to fertilize the food crops that are fed to the living. When people start dying from coronavirus, will they also be flushed into the sewage systems?

#5) The practice — now common in filthy liberal cities — of allowing people to openly defecate in the streets, with no repercussions or arrests. Since viruses often infect human feces and other body excretions, this likely means that coronavirus will be found in the raw human feces that gets washed into storm drains during rain storms. The storm drains in San Francisco, Seattle and other coastal cities empty directly into the ocean, where viruses are then washed onto the beaches of North America, infecting beach goers and mixing with aquatic ecosystems to produce even more potentially dangerous variants of infectious disease.

#6) The continued attacks on natural medicine and the censorship of sources like Natural News that can teach people how to avoid or overcome infections even when pharmaceutical medicines fail (or are completely out of supply).

#7) The compromised human immune system due to widespread vaccination practices that actually weaken, not strengthen, the veracity of the human immune response. People who routinely receive vaccinations such as flu shots are discovered to be more vulnerable to future infections. Widespread immunization practices across North America, Europe, Australia and other countries have created a highly vulnerable population that can be easily infected with coronavirus.

These factors now converge to create a perfect storm for the coronavirus outbreak, which is actually a weaponized, engineered biological weapon being unleashed against humanity in order to achieve depopulation.

It will very likely succeed, since humanity has been begging for self-destruction through all the practices detailed above.

Most notably, the highest fatalities from any such pandemic will occur in cities; especially cities where the homeless are more populous and filthy, unsanitary conditions exist. In other words, liberal cities.

BREAKING: W.H.O. Declares Global Coronavirus Pandemic as Person-to-Person Transmission Confirmed in USA

30January2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-30-w-h-o-declares-global-pandemic-coronavirus.html

(Natural News) The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus to be a global pandemic, after person-to-person transmission has been confirmed in the United States and other countries. This spreading of the pandemic across multiple countries qualifies it for global pandemic status.

The American people remain oblivious to the pandemic, as the fake news media has been downplaying the severity of the outbreak for days. Even many people in the independent media seem to lack any real understanding of how pandemics spread, and they don’t yet understand the mathematical models of exponential infections.

“The first case of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus in the U.S. has been confirmed in Chicago, according to state and federal health officials, as governments and corporations around the world are scrambling to limit the damage from the fast-spreading virus,” reported the Wall Street Journal minutes ago.

The WSJ notes that the coronavirus pandemic has spread to 15 other countries, with human-to-human transmission also confirmed outside both the USA and China.

The World Health Organization just concluded an emergency meeting in which a full global pandemic was declared.

This decision is actually a good thing, as it may give nations like the United States the political cover they need to block all flights from China — arguably the only way that further spread can be halted.

Given the “stealth” nature of the coronavirus and the fact that it can be spread by symptomless carriers who don’t even know they’re infecting others, isolation is the only answer to stopping the exponential spread of the pandemic. That means President Trump has a very short window of opportunity to order the halting of all flights from China, or risk further expansion of the pandemic in the United States.

This is a rare case where we agree with the WHO’s decision to declare a global pandemic. It’s the right thing to do, and it may allow governments to start enacting enhanced quarantines and isolation procedures that seem to be the only way to stop this.

Quarantine isn’t enough: Wuhan coronavirus R0 is so high that even the most draconian lockdown measures can’t contain it

18February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-18-wuhan-coronavirus-r0-so-high-lockdown-cant-contain-it.html

(Natural News) The latest basic reproductive number (R0) estimates for the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) suggest that this thing is a whole lot more infectious than initially believed. It’s become so serious, in fact, that even communist China’s implementation of medical martial law is reportedly unable to contain it.

Some of the latest science into the outbreak reveals the number of people being infected by the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) is doubling every 2.4 days, with an R0 of between 4.7 and 6.6. If this is accurate, things are about to get a whole lot worse before they ever have the chance to get better.

A paper published in the journal medRxiv, which is associated with the British Medical Journal, suggests that quarantine and contract tracing alone “may not be effective” to fully contain the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19), and that “early, strong control measures are needed.”

What these early, strong control measures might entail isn’t fully spelled out in this paper, though it does make mention of how the full closure of Wuhan changed the dynamics of other surrounding areas that have had to worry slightly less about the import of new cases.

Further, the paper estimates that the growth rate of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) has decreased from 0.29 per day to about 0.14 per day since January 30. Based on the paper’s calculations, this decreases the disease’s R0 from an earlier range of between 4.7 to 6.6, to 2.3 to 3.0.

Again, these are merely estimates, and as we’ve seen in recent days, the numbers are constantly changing. But the point is that, even with the most draconian of containment measures, the infection rate is still alarmingly high and there’s really no stopping this virus until it eventually runs its course.

Part of the problem is that the Wuhan coronavirus appears to be able to infect others even while still in incubation, meaning infected patients transmitting it to others aren’t necessarily even showing symptoms themselves. Listen below as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, discusses this on an episode of The Health Ranger Report. (Hear more daily podcasts at Brighteon.com/channel/hrreport )

China doesn’t count SYMPTOMLESS carriers as being INFECTED

Don’t be fooled: The Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) outbreak is only just getting started

Despite this estimated decrease in its R0, the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) is “still rapidly growing,” according to the paper, and has spread to more than 20 different countries as of February 5. And how it will spread in these other countries in the coming days “remains to be seen.”

In other words, just because the rate of growth appears to be slowing in Wuhan doesn’t mean that the same is true everywhere else. Chances are there will be spikes in cases that begin to emerge well outside of China as the first few cases balloon into a few more cases, which in turn skyrocket, potentially.

Even with a lowered R0, of let’s say 3.0, this still means that the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) will spread to three additional people for every one person it infects, which means exponential growth. Unless its R0 can be brought down to zero or below, the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) is only just getting started, so don’t let your guard down quite yet.

The jury is also out as to how deadly the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) really is, with the official numbers not necessarily matching what’s actually happening.

“If the value of R0 is as high in other countries, our results suggest that active and strong population-wide social distancing efforts, such as closing down transportation system(s), schools, discouraging travel, etc., might be needed to reduce the overall contacts to contain the spread of the virus,” the paper concludes.

Chinese Coronavirus Patient Reinfected 10 Days After Leaving Hospital

by Tyler Durden 21February2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/health/chinese-coronavirus-patient-reinfected-10-days-after-leaving-hospital

 

As we first reported on Monday, shortly after the US decided to break the quarantine surrounding the Diamond Princess cruise ship which had emerged as the single-biggest locus of coronavirus cases outside of China, hundreds of weary, homesick Americans were on their way home. And as more than a dozen buses sat on the tarmac at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport with 328 Americans wearing surgical masks and gloves inside, awaiting anxiously to fly home after weeks in quarantine aboard the Diamond Princess, U.S. officials wrestled with troubling news: new test results showed that 14 passengers were infected with the virus. The problem: the U.S. State Department had promised that no one with the infection would be allowed to board the planes.

 

A decision had to be made. Let them all fly? Or leave them behind in Japanese hospitals? At this point, according to the Washington Post, a fierce debate broke out in Washington, where it was still Sunday afternoon: The State Department and a top Trump administration health official wanted to forge ahead. The infected passengers had no symptoms and could be segregated on the plane in a plastic-lined enclosure (something we mocked on Monday when we said we can only hope that “plastic divider” was enough to keep the virus confined to its own class aboard the aircraft.”). At this point, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disagreed, contending they could still spread the virus. The CDC believed the 14 should not be flown back with uninfected passengers.

 

“It was like the worst nightmare,” said a senior U.S. official involved in the decision, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations. “Quite frankly, the alternative could have been pulling grandma out in the pouring rain, and that would have been bad, too.”

 

In the end, the State Department won the argument. But unhappy CDC officials demanded to be left out of the news release that explained that infected people were being flown back to the United States — a move that would nearly double the number of known coronavirus cases in this country.

 

In retrospect, the CDC will soon be proven correct in its dire warning that repatriating a full plane of both infected and healthy individuals could be a catastrophic error, because it now appears that not only can the virus remain latent for as long as 42 days, 4 weeks longer than traditionally assumed, resulting in numerous false negative cases as infected carrier slip across borders undetected, but far more ominously, it now appears that the diseases can re-infect recently “cured” patients, because as Taiwan News reports, a Chinese patient who just recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has been infected for the second time in the province of Sichuan, according to local health officials.

 

On Wednesday (Feb. 19), the People’s Daily reported that a man in Sichuan’s capital Chengdu had tested positive for the virus during a regular check-up just ten days after being discharged from the hospital. The report said he had previously been cleared of the virus by medical staff.

 

The Sichuan Health Commission confirmed the news on Friday (Feb. 21) and issued a community warning announcement in the patient’s neighborhood. The announcement said that the man and his family had been transported to a nearby health facility on Thursday morning (Feb. 20) and that health officials had sanitized the entire community, reported Liberty Times.

 

According to ETtoday, the patient and his family had been under home quarantine and had not left the house since Feb. 10. The authorities are still investigating the cause of the reinfection.

 

The news has stirred up heated reactions from Chinese netizens. Some suspect that the hospital discharged the man before he was fully recovered, and many have expressed concern about the worsening epidemic.

 

Several doctors from Wuhan, the epicenter of COVID-19, said last week that it is possible for recovered patients to contract the virus a second time. They warned that a recurring infection could be even more damaging to a patient’s body and that the tests are susceptible to false negatives.

 

Needless to say, with the US now repatriating over a dozen coronavirus-infected individuals, it will be absolutely critical to keep a close eye on any deemed healthy or cured, because it now appears that not only can the virus stay latent for nearly a month longer than previously expected, but cured patients can also get reinfected.

 

And all of this is probably why, in a far more gloomier sounding press conference, today the CDC warned that:

  • CDC SAYS CORONAVIRUS IS A TREMENDOUS PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT, FUTURE HUMAN TO HUMAN TRANSMISSION IN THE U.S IS VERY POSSIBLE AND EVEN LIKELY

In short, it’s only a matter of time before the pandemic, which is already “contained” in nearly 30 cases in the US as of this moment, becomes uncontained, and the exponential chart of cases away from China, includes the US in it.

Hubei Doctors Warn Of Even-Deadlier Coronavirus Reinfection Causing Sudden Heart Attacks

by Tyler Durden February2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/health/hubei-doctors-warn-even-deadlier-coronavirus-reinfection-causing-sudden-heart-attacks

Doctors working on the front lines of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak have told the Taiwan Times that it’s possible to become reinfected by the virus, leading to death from sudden heart failure in some cases.

corona virus

It’s highly possible to get infected a second time. A few people recovered from the first time by their own immune system, but the meds they use are damaging their heart tissue, and when they get it the second time, the antibody doesn’t help but makes it worse, and they die a sudden death from heart failure,” reads a message forwarded to Taiwan News from a relative of one of the doctors living in the United Kingdom.

The source also said the virus has “outsmarted all of us,” as it can hide symptoms for up to 24 days. This assertion has been made independently elsewhere, with Chinese pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan (鍾南山) saying the average incubation period is three days, but it can take as little as one day and up to 24 days to develop symptoms.

 

Also, the source said that false negative tests for the virus are fairly common. “It can fool the test kit – there were cases that they found, the CT scan shows both lungs are fully infected but the test came back negative four times. The fifth test came back positive.” –Taiwan Times

Notably, one of the ways coronaviruses cripple the immune system is via an HIV-like attachment to white blood cells, which triggers a ‘cytokine storm‘ – a term popularized during the avian H5N1 influenza outbreak – in which an uncontrolled release of inflammatory ‘cytokines’ target various organs, often leading to failure and in many cases death.

The cytokine storm is best exemplified by severe lung infections, in which local inflammation spills over into the systemic circulation, producing systemic sepsis, as defined by persistent hypotension, hyper- or hypothermia, leukocytosis or leukopenia, and often thrombocytopenia.

In addition to lung infections, the cytokine storm is a consequence of severe infections in the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, central nervous system, skin, joint spaces, and other sites. (Tisoncik, et. al, Into the Eye of the Cytokine Storm)(2012)

According to the 2012 study, “Cytokine storms are associated with a wide variety of infectious and noninfectious diseases and have even been the unfortunate consequence of attempts at therapeutic intervention.”

How do coronaviruses enter the body?

With SARS (sudden acute respiratory syndrome), another coronavirus, researchers discovered that one of the ways the disease attaches itself is through an enzyme known as ACE2, a ‘functional receptor’ produced in several organs (oral and nasal mucosa, nasopharynx, lung, stomach, small intestine, colon, skin, lymph nodes, thymus, bone marrow, spleen, liver, kidney, and brain).

ACE2 is also “abundantly present in humans in the epithelia of the lung and small intestine, which might provide possible routes of entry for the SARS-CoV,” while it was also observed “in arterial and venous endothelial cells and arterial smooth muscle cells” – which would include the heart.

This has led some to speculate that Asians, who have higher concentrations of ACE2 (per the 1000 genome project) may be affected to a greater degree than those of European ancestry, who produce the least of it – and have largely been the asymptomatic ‘super spreaders‘ such as Diamond Princess coronavirus victim Rebecca Frasure.

And so while more research on COVID-19 is urgently needed – we know that coronavirus can target ACE2 receptors, which are found in the cardiovascuar system. And we have seen evidence of both sudden collapses and neurological damage from footage pouring out of Wuhan, China.

If the virus can reinfect patients and cause cytokine storms and sudden death – possibly exacerbated by therapeutic intervention – treating the coronavirus which CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield says will become widespread throughout the United States ‘this year or next,’ it is vitally important to understand exactly how COVID-19 works, and how to treat it. That would require cooperation from China and a CDC team on the ground in the epicenter. For some unknown reason, however, China still refuses to grant US scientists access to ground zero.

A Beijing Hospital Confirms Covid-19 Attacks Central Nervous System

by Tyler Durden 04March2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/health/beijing-hospital-confirms-covid-19-attacks-central-nervous-system
Via CNTechPost.com,

Beijing Ditan Hospital affiliated to the Capital Medical University said on March 4 that the first patient with novel coronavirus pneumonia complicated with encephalitis was discharged from the hospital on February 25.

coronavirus

Liu Jingyuan, director of the ICU at the Hospital, presided over the treatment of the patient. He reminded that patients with conscious disturbances must consider the possibility that the virus may attack the central nervous system.

At present, patients with new type of coronavirus pneumonia can be combined with multiple organ damages such as severe respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), myocardial damage, abnormal coagulation function, kidney damage, liver damage, etc. However, no central nervous system involvement has been reported. The case report is the first in the world.

Previous studies on SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) have also shown that the coronaviruses that cause these two diseases also cause cases of central nervous system damage

According to the introduction of Beijing Ditan Hospital, two suspected cases of new-type coronavirus pneumonia have been treated since January 12 this year (confirmed on January 20). As of 7:00 on March 4, the hospital has accumulatively received 150 patients with new-type coronavirus pneumonia, of which the above patient is the only patient with new type of coronavirus pneumonia and encephalitis.

The 56-year-old patient was admitted to the hospital on January 24 with new coronavirus pneumonia, critical illness, and respiratory failure. After admission, he was given a combination of interferon nebulization, antiviral treatment, prevention of bacterial infection, and TCM syndrome differentiation. No improvement, high fever, fatigue, and dyspnea gradually increased.

On January 27 (10th day of onset), a chest CT showed that the range of ground-glass density in both lungs was enlarged, and some of them were consolidating. Short-term nasal high-flow oxygen inhalation, no relief in breathing distress, irritability, breathing 50 breaths per minute, partial oxygen pressure of 85%, intubation in the ICU, mechanical ventilation in accordance with the principle of ARDS breathing ventilation.

After 96 hours of treatment (day 14 of the onset), the patient developed frequent twitching of the maxillofacial and mouth angles with persistent hiccups.

On examination, the doctor found positive neck resistance, bilateral pupils and other large contours, sluggish light reflection, increased limb muscle tension, bilateral knee reflexes, bilateral Pap sign and ankle clonus, and no intracranial CT scan. Abnormal, the cerebrospinal fluid pressure was greater than 330mmH2O, the appearance of the cerebrospinal fluid was colorless and clear, and the biochemical test was normal.

Beijing Ditan Hospital’s Department of Critical Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, and the China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Infectious Diseases Joint Working Group performed metagenome second-generation sequencing of the collected cerebrospinal fluid specimens and identified possible infectious pathogens. Other pathogens were excluded and a new coronavirus was obtained. Genomic sequence.

Gene sequencing confirmed the existence of a new coronavirus in the cerebrospinal fluid and clinical diagnosis of viral encephalitis.

Subsequently, the medical staff treated the patients with viral encephalitis after 14 days of mechanical ventilation and mannitol to control intracranial pressure, midazolam to control convulsions, gamma globulin, and methylprednisolone anti-inflammatory treatment, and observed the patient’s lung disease imaging gradually. Improved, neurological symptoms disappeared.

On February 10 (day 24 of the onset of illness), the trachea was intubated and the nasal cannula was given oxygen after fully assessing the patient’s respiratory and neural function. On February 18 (the 32nd day after the onset of illness), he was transferred out of the intensive care unit and continued to receive treatment in the new coronavirus ward.

Liu Jingyuan reminded that in clinical observation, there were many cases of cervical resistance, positive pathological signs, sudden disturbance of consciousness and even coma.

He said that in the face of such patients, it is necessary to be vigilant to the new type of coronavirus infection that can affect the central nervous system, timely conduct relevant examinations such as cerebrospinal fluid, and improve the work on SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid and gene sequencing of cerebrospinal fluid in order to better understand COVID-19. Explore and actively deal with related neurological complications, thereby further reducing the mortality of critically ill patients.

Scientists Discover More Aggressive Strain Of Coronavirus Responsible For 70% Of Current Infections

by Tyler Durden 04March2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/health/scientists-discover-more-aggressive-strain-coronavirus-responsible-70-current-infections

Chinese scientists studying the new coronavirus have found two new primary strains of the disease – one of which appears to be far more aggressive.

 

The researchers, from Peking University’s School of Life Sciences, discovered a milder “S-type” strain, and an “L-type” which is highly infectious and currently accounts for around 70% of cases, according to The Telegraph. The researchers cautioned that their preliminary findings looked at a limited number of cases (103), and that follow-up studies with larger data sets are needed to better understand the virus’s evolution.

A genetic analysis of the coronavirus found in a man who tested positive in the United States on January 21 also showed that it’s possible to be infected with both strains.

two major strains identified
Via the
Daily Mail

Coronavirus, which was first detected in December 2018 in Wuhan, China, has infected at least 94,000 people – officially, and killed more than 3,200 as of this writing.

And while there are now two major strains identified, scientist Trevor Bedford of Nextstrain has been tracking 161 strains of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in patients across the globe.

Bedford writes in a March 2 blog post that “The novel coronavirus which is responsible for the emerging COVID-19 pandemic mutates at an average of about two mutations per month.

Cryptic transmission of novel coronavirus revealed by genomic epidemiology

02 March2020 by Trevor Bedford https://bedford.io/blog/ncov-cryptic-transmission/

The field of genomic epidemiology focuses on using the genetic sequences of pathogens to understand patterns of transmission and spread. Viruses mutate very quickly and accumulate changes during the process of transmission from one infected individual to another. The novel coronavirus which is responsible for the emerging COVID-19 pandemic mutates at an average of about two mutations per month. After someone is exposed they will generally incubate the virus for ~5 days before symptoms develop and transmission occurs. Other research has shown that the “serial interval” of SARS-CoV-2 is ~7 days. You can think of a transmission chain as looking something like:

ncov_transmission_chain_simple

where, on average, we have 7 days from one infection to the next. As the virus transmits, it will mutate at this rate of two mutations per month. This means, that on average every other step in the transmission chain will have a mutation and so would look something like:

 

ncov_transmission_chain_mutationThese mutations are generally really simple things. An ‘A’ might change to a ‘T’, or a ‘G’ to a ‘C’. This changes the genetic code of the virus, but it’s hard for a single letter change to do much to make the virus behave differently. However, with advances in technology, it’s become readily feasible to sequence the genome of the novel coronavirus. This works by taking a swab from someone’s nose and extracting the RNA in the sample and then determining the ‘letters’ of this RNA genome using chemistry and very powerful cameras. Each person’s coronavirus infection will yield a sequence of 30,000 ‘A’, ‘T’, ‘G’ or ‘C’ letters. We can use these sequences to reconstruct which infection is connected to which infection. As an example, if we sequenced three of these infections and found:

ncov_transmission_chain_sequenced

We could take the “genomes” ATTT, ATCT and GTCT and infer that the infection with sequence ATTT lead to the infection with sequence ATCT and this infection lead to the infection with sequence GTCT. This approach allows us learn about epidemiology and transmission in a completely novel way and can supplement more traditional contact tracing and case-based reporting.

For a few years now, we’ve been working on the Nextstrain software platform, which aims to make genomic epidemiology as rapid and as useful as possible. We had previously applied this to outbreaks like Ebola, Zika and seasonal flu. Owing to advances in technology and open data sharing, the genomes of 140 SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses have been shared from all over the world via gisaid.org. As these genomes are shared, we download them from GISAID and incorporate them into a global map as quickly as possible and have an always up-to-date view of the genomic epidemiology of novel coronavirus at nextstrain.org/ncov.

The big picture looks like this at the moment:

ncov_nextstrain_2020_03_01

where we can see the earliest infections in Wuhan, China in purple on the left side of the tree. All these genomes from Wuhan have a common ancestor in late Nov or early Dec, suggesting that this virus has emerged recently in the human population.

The first case in the USA was called “USA/WA1/2020”. This was from a traveller directly returning from Wuhan to Snohomish County on Jan 15, with a swab collected on Jan 19. This virus was rapidly sequenced by the US CDC Division of Viral Diseases and shared publicly on Jan 24 (huge props to the CDC for this). We can zoom into the tree to place WA1 among related viruses:

ncov_nextstrain_2020_03_01_wa1

The virus has an identical genome to the virus Fujian/8/2020 sampled in Fujian on Jan 21, also labeled as a travel export from Wuhan, suggesting a close relationship between these two cases.

Last week the Seattle Flu Study started screening samples for COVID-19 as described here. Soon after starting screening we found a first positive in a sample from Snohomish County. The case was remarkable in that it was a “community case”, only the second recognized in the US, someone who had sought treatment for flu-like symptoms, been tested for flu and then sent home owing to mild disease. After this was diagnostically confirmed by Shoreline Public Health labs on Fri Feb 28 we were able to immediately get the sample USA/WA2/2020 on a sequencer and have a genome available on Sat Feb 29. The results were remarkable. The WA2 case was identical to WA1 except that it had three additional mutations.

ncov_nextstrain_2020_03_01_wa2

This tree structure is consistent with WA2 being a direct descendent of WA1. If this virus arrived in Snohomish County in mid-January with the WA1 traveler from Wuhan and circulated locally for 5 weeks, we’d expect exactly this pattern, where the WA2 genome is a copy of the WA1 genome except it has some mutations that have arisen over the 5 weeks that separate them.

Again, this tree structure is consistent with a transmission chain leading from WA1 to WA2, but we wanted to assess the probability of this pattern arising by chance instead of direct transmission. Scientists often try to approach this situation by thinking of a “null model”, ie if it was coincidence, how likely of a coincidence was it? Here, WA1 and WA2 share the same genetic variant at site 18060 in the virus genome, but only 2/59 sequenced viruses from China possess this variant. Given this low frequency, we’d expect probability of WA2 randomly having the same genetic variant at 2/59 = 3%. To me, this not quite conclusive evidence, but still strong evidence that WA2 is a direct descendent of WA1.

Additional evidence for the relationship between these cases comes from location. The Seattle Flu Study had screened viruses from all over the greater Seattle area, however, we got the positive hit in Snohomish County with cases less than 15 miles apart. This by itself would only be suggestive, but combined with the genetic data, is firm evidence for continued transmission.

I’ve been referring to this scenario as “cryptic transmission”. This is a technical term meaning “undetected transmission”. Our best guess of a scenario looks something like:

ncov_transmission_chain_wa1_wa2

We believe this may have occurred by the WA1 case having exposed someone else to the virus in the period between Jan 15 and Jan 19 before they were isolated. If this second case was mild or asymptomatic, contact tracing efforts by public health would have had difficulty detecting it. After this point, community spread occurred and was undetected due to the CDC narrow case definition that required direct travel to China or direct contact with a known case to even be considered for testing. This lack of testing was a critical error and allowed an outbreak in Snohomish County and surroundings to grow to a sizable problem before it was even detected.

Knowing that transmission was initiated on Jan 15 allows us to estimate the total number of infections that exist in this cluster today. Our preliminary analysis puts this at 570 with an 90% uncertainty interval of between 80 and 1500 infections.

Back on Feb 8, I tweeted this thought experiment:

ncov_seeding

We know that Wuhan went from an index case in ~Nov-Dec 2019 to several thousand cases by mid-Jan 2020, thus going from initial seeding event to widespread local transmission in the span of ~9-10 weeks. We now believe that the Seattle area seeding event was ~Jan 15 and we’re now ~7 weeks later. I expect Seattle now to look like Wuhan around ~1 Jan, when they were reporting the first clusters of patients with unexplained viral pneumonia. We are currently estimating ~600 infections in Seattle, this matches my phylodynamic estimate of the number of infections in Wuhan on Jan 1. Three weeks later, Wuhan had thousands of infections and was put on large-scale lock-down. However, these large-scale non-pharmaceutical interventions to create social distancing had a huge impact on the resulting epidemic. China averted many millions of infections through these intervention measures and cases there have declined substantially.

ncov_hubei_cases_2020_03_02

This suggests that this is controllable. We’re at a critical junction right now, but we can still mitigate this substantially.

Some ways to implement non-pharmaceutical interventions include:

  • Practicing social distancing, such as limiting attendance at events with large groups of people
  • Working from home, if your job and employer allows it
  • Staying home if you are feeling ill
  • Take your temperature daily, if you develop a fever, self-isolate and call your doctor
  • Implementing good hand washing practices – it is extremely important to wash hands regularly
  • Covering coughs and sneezes in your elbow or tissue
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs
  • Beginning some preparations in anticipation of social distancing or supply chain shortages, such as ensuring you have sufficient supplies of prescription medicines and ensuring you have about a 2 week supply of food and other necessary household goods.
  • With these preparation in mind, it is important to not panic buy. Panic buying unnecessarily increases strain on supply chains and can make it difficult to ensure that everyone is able to get supplies that they need.

China invokes HOLOCAUST HORRORS as 40 mobile incineration ovens are deployed in Wuhan, labeled for disposal of “animal corpses”

19February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-19-china-holocaust-horrors-incineration-ovens-burn-animal-corpses.html

Image: China invokes HOLOCAUST HORRORS as 40 mobile incineration ovens are deployed in Wuhan, labeled for disposal of “animal corpses” The words on the side of these incineration ovens say, “Garbage and Animal Corpse Placement Receptacle.”

(Natural News) Remember 13 days ago when we warned that “cremation vans” were running 24/7 in Wuhan, China while the crematoriums were backlogged with piles of dead bodies stacked in the cremation queues?

Now China has brought in 40 mobile incineration ovens to burn and destroy what the Chinese government calls “medical waste.” As you can see in the photos below, the incineration ovens are labeled for the disposal of “animal corpses.”

The deployment of incineration ovens, combined with the grotesque violations of basic human rights now being routinely committed by China in response to the pandemic, has invoked memories of the horrors related to the Holocaust of World War II.

As reported by the UK Daily Star, these incineration ovens are built to the size of 20-foot transport containers, and each can incinerate about 30 cubic meters of material. “Reportedly the incinerators have been sanctioned for the use by the Chinese military after a test in Golmud, Qinghai in January,” says the Daily Star.

Image: China invokes HOLOCAUST HORRORS as 40 mobile incineration ovens are deployed in Wuhan, labeled for disposal of “animal corpses” The words on the side of these incineration ovens say, “Garbage and Animal Corpse Placement Receptacle.”
(Image source: Weibo)

The words on the side of these incineration ovens say, “Garbage and Animal Corpse Placement Receptacle.” (Our staff reads Mandarin Chinese, so we have confirmed this.)

Each incinerator can burn up to five tons of material per day, which equates to about 16 dead human bodies or large animal bodies per unit, per day. Multiplied by the 40 incineration ovens which have now been deployed, this adds the capacity to burn up to 640 human bodies per day, even though they claim these ovens are for animal corpses and medical waste.

According to “official” Chinese government data that no one believes except the incompetent World Health Organization, daily coronavirus deaths in China are hovering around 100. It seems we are now supposed to believe China has an epidemic of dead animals that’s so large, they need 40 incineration ovens to burn animal corpses.

Chinese woman risks her life to tell the truth about communist LIES

But people inside the quarantine chaos in China are so fed up with the lies from their own government that they are risking their own lives to speak out. Check out this woman’s desperate plea from China, where she is sure to be thrown into one of the incineration ovens for recording this very video. We have confirmed she speaks with a mainland Chinese accent and pronunciation. Actually, I’ve even confirmed that myself since I can tell the difference between mainland Chinese Mandarin vs. Taiwanese Mandarin:

A partial transcript of what she’s saying: (h/t to Zero Hedge)

Only normal citizens are suffering. The government does not care about us. We can’t buy medicine with money. We can’t go to the hospital with money.

And in Hong Kong, I support your independence. I also support Taiwan independence. Tibet and Hong Kong, I support independence.

Not a single person can speak freely. If anyone speaks about the truth, they are detained, If they decide it’s 10 years or 20 years then it’s already decided. Even lawyers are useless.

I’m gonna tell you something. 1 person’s sacrifice 2 people’s sacrifice is a sacrifice that is necessary of a revolution. I will make a sacrifice for may parents, for my family, for our free lives.

I know it is dangerous for me to speak out. But I can’t take it anymore, I cannot.

No beds, no medicine, all the news from TV is a lie.

In this evil society I can no longer keep my mouth shut. No one is willing to speak out. I am going to stand up and make a voice. We really have to resist my fellow citizens. I can’t live like this anymore.

Here’s another photo of the incineration ovens along with some crew members who will no doubt be required to move all the corpses into the incineration vessels:

The next wave of lies from communist China will no doubt involve some cover story for explaining why hundreds of thousands of people have gone missing and are nowhere to be found…

CREMATION VANS running 24/7 as China orders door-to-door mass roundups of infected citizens to be placed in “quarantine prison camps”

06February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-06-cremation-vans-china-orders-door-to-door-mass-roundups-quarantine-prison-camps.html

(Natural News) Just when you thought China’s draconian measures to stop the deadly coronavirus pandemic couldn’t get any more draconian, the communist Chinese regime has announced a whole new level of medical tyranny: Door-to-door forced roundups of infected citizens who will be removed against their will and placed in “quarantine prison camps” that China absurdly calls “hospitals.” (Real hospitals don’t have bars on the windows of every patient’s room, see photos below…)

“Wuhan is told to round up infected residents for mass quarantine camps,” reports the New York Times, sounding almost exactly like InfoWars.com’s stories from weeks ago. (Isn’t it interesting how the mainstream media sooner or later sounds like the independent media when the truth comes out?)

“In an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, China’s vice premier mandated on Feb. 6 that the Wuhan city government screen each resident’s body temperature by visiting their homes one by one,” reports The Epoch Times, warning that, “Chinese netizens are worried that the new regulation may inadvertently cause the virus to spread even more quickly.”

An official command from Vice Premier Sun Chunlan described the door-to-door mandatory medical search of every citizen in the region. Via TET:

At a Feb. 6 meeting on the outbreak response, Sun requested that the Wuhan government “use the whole city’s resources and visit each family, to find the four types of people” by taking their body temperatures.

The four types were referring to: diagnosed coronavirus patients; suspected patients; patients who have a fever and have yet to be diagnosed for the virus; and those who have close contact with diagnosed and suspected patients.

“You cannot miss any family, or any single person,” Sun said, according to state-run media.

Sun used “wartime” to describe Wuhan’s current situation, adding that all four types of people must be sent to the city’s quarantine centers or hospitals.

She threatened Wuhan officials that they would be punished if they miss any resident.

This means that merely having “close contact” with a “suspected patient” can result in you being placed under medical arrest, forcibly removed from your home and placed in a quarantine prison camp under military surveillance. There, you are very likely to be infected by other patients, of course, but China has a plan for that, too: Cremation vans that transport bodies straight from the “hospitals” to the cremation ovens in order to rapidly dispose of the bodies (see links and photos below).

The New York Times adds this quote from Sun Chunlan, who gave the order, sounding a whole lot like Hitler, Stalin or Mao: “Set up a 24-hour duty system. During these wartime conditions, there must be no deserters, or they will be nailed to the pillar of historical shame forever.”

As you read this article, remember that everything you are seeing in China today will come to America tomorrow. This has been true with Big Tech’s draconian censorship measures, the rollout of a “social media scoring” system that punishes dissenting views, as well as authoritarian medical mandates that are rapidly being ramped up across America (such as California’s SB 277 vaccine mandate law), following the blueprint of medical tyranny in mainland China.

The medical police state that has already become reality in China is just one CDC declaration from becoming the rule of law in America, as confirmed by the CDC’s claim of authority over all Americans during a pandemic outbreak. Click here to read the CDC’s full explanation of federal laws that allow it to run mandatory “medical police state” quarantine / roundup operations in America, just like we’re now seeing in China.

To repeat, everything you are seeing in China right now can be implemented in America with a single declaration from the CDC.

Everything China tries to implement only makes the pandemic spread more quickly

The effort is almost sure to spread the pandemic more rapidly, as it allows health “officials” who will surely be quickly infected with the coronavirus to invade every individual home in the entire region, spreading the virus from one home to another. The order, if fully followed, is almost guaranteed to accelerate coronavirus infections that have already exceeded 30,000, according to “official” Chinese numbers.

Remember, China is a communist nation that couldn’t control this coronavirus in a BSL-4 biohazard facility… how are they going to control it in the wild, on the streets of an open city populated by millions?

Via TET:

Sean Lin, a U.S.-based expert in microbiology and former virology researcher for the U.S. Army, [said], “her order worries me because the government cares more about politics than disease control, medical treatment, and humanitarian assistance.”

Netizens seemed to agree. Yanan, a Wuhan neitizen posted on Weibo that he and his family members have not left their home since Jan. 23 and are healthy so far.

“Now you [the government] will arrange a person from the outside to enter our home and measure our temperature by using a thermometer from the outside [which may be contaminated with the virus],” Yanan said.

He added that because his household does not have disinfectant products, he may not have the proper tools to prevent the virus from spreading when the staff takes their temperatures.

In other words, in a desperate effort to stop the pandemic, they are going to invade every home in the region and introduce new risk factors for spreading infectious disease, then medically kidnap the very people they are infecting and ship them off to quarantine prison camps where they are likely to die, but in order to avoid admitting to the deaths, they will burn the bodies in cremation ovens and pretend nothing happened. The plan is so disastrously ill-conceived that it almost sounds like something comrade Bernie Sanders would try to implement if elected President.

TET also reports how this entire effort may cause even more people to become infected:

Other experts, such as U.S.-based China affairs commentator Ai Li, were skeptical that taking body temperatures can accurately identify coronavirus patients, particularly as Chinese medical experts have already confirmed that some people infected with the virus may not exhibit symptoms during the incubation period—a timespan of up to 14 days—but can still spread the virus to others.

She also questioned the authorities’ decision to send suspected patients to quarantine centers, as they could cross-infect each other.

“If you see the videos [that Chinese netizens filmed] of the quarantine centers and makeshift hospitals, you will know immediately that even healthy people will be sick in that environment,” Ai said on a Chinese-language commentary show on YouTube.

Wuhan netizens shared videos of the conditions at those facilities, saying that there is no medicine, no medical staff, very limited food and drinking water, as well as cold, unsanitary environs with unstable electricity.

In other words, it’s a communist utopia! With this plan, China is making Venezuela’s dumpster-diving mass starvation apocalypse look like a fun day at the park.

China’s “hospitals” are military-run quarantine prison camps with bars on the windows

Remember when Hillary Clinton said that FEMA camps are “fun camps?” In China, military-run quarantine prison camps are called “hospitals.”

All the rooms have bars on the windows to prevent “patients” from escaping, while held under armed guard by military troops.

Here’s a recent photo of one of these facilities under construction. Notice the bars on every window? They’re welded into place:

More videos of these quarantine prison camp “hospitals” can be found at NationalFile.com.

Cremation vans running 24/7 as dead bodies are pulled out of the quarantine prison camps and piled into ovens

Just as the quarantine prison camps are being rapidly expanded to hundreds of thousands of beds, news is leaking out about the so-called “cremation vans” which are collecting dead bodies and ferreting them into cremation ovens to eliminate the dead as quickly as possible.

“In a bold claim, Chinese-language news outlet Initium believe that Chinese authorities have been cremating bodies in secret,” reports The Sun (UK). “This week, they interviewed people working at local cremation centres in Wuhan — where the virus originated from — who said bodies were being sent directly from hospitals without being properly identified and added to the official record.”

As The Washington Examiner relates:

“Also, one thing that #China is hiding is the number of death caused by the virus,” tweeted Deutsche Welle reporter William Yang. “Credible Chinese media outlet @initiumnews interviewed people working at local cremation centers, confirming that many dead bodies were sent directly from the hospitals to the cremation centers.”

The mass cremation of the dead is one way China avoids having to report both infections and deaths. After all, there’s no need to test a person after they’re turned to ash, so the coronavirus can’t be explicitly blamed for their death (plus, the hot fire burns away any last shred of any virus). This “final solution” is so ingenious by communist standards that the Chinese regime will no doubt soon expand this practice to the living, too.

The media is pretending the following photos don’t exist, claiming the pandemic is imaginary

As an interesting note about the level of mass mental illness which has spread even faster than the coronavirus itself, the lying mainstream media continues to claim that anyone reporting the truth about the coronavirus pandemic is a “fear monger,” even as those same media pundits practically claimed the world was coming to an end when the measles was spreading at Disneyland a few years ago. (Hint: That tiny measles outbreak produced exactly zero deaths.)

Now, the media seems to be claiming that there is no coronavirus pandemic and everybody is just imagining it, somehow. Anyone who even dares to talk about the reality of the pandemic in China is immediately branded a “fear monger.” Remember this is coming from the same lying mainstream media outlets that told us President Trump was working for the Russians, and if we didn’t urgently remove him from office, he would sell Alaska to Putin and throw all the children of the world into cages.

So, yeah, you can’t really believe anything the mainstream media reports. They don’t know the difference between a pandemic and a pan.

But that’s why it’s so important to show the world the photos of what’s really happening in China.

This photos shows a partial image of one of these cremation vans — i.e. “ambulance” in China’s twisted word games — as men in hazmat suits prepare to load up the body of another victim who collapsed dead on the sidewalk and apparently bled out:

Here’s a top-down photo of another body or patient being loaded into an ambulance while under cover of what looks like a hazmat isolation structure:

As you see these photos, keep in mind that the lying fake news journalists of the mainstream media are right now trying to convince the world that none of this is happening:

Here’s another dead body on the sidewalk that the mainstream media in America is apparently claiming is all staged, sort of like an Iowa caucus:

Remember, too, that the lying mainstream media claims this coronavirus is “no worse than the common cold.” Yet how many times have you ever seen medical personnel in hazmat suits loading bodies into ambulances merely because the person had a cold?

‘Burning Bodies In Secret’ – New Accounts From Wuhan Detail Coronavirus Outbreak

by Tyler Durden 31January2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/burning-bodies-secret-new-accounts-wuhan-detail-coronavirus-outbreak

Almost 2,000 new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in China on Thursday, lifting the country’s total to approximately 9,692, surpassing all of the 2002-03 SARS epidemic in a matter of weeks. All of the deaths have been in China, now at 213. Globally, there are 9,816 cases of the deadly virus.

There have been doubts about the officially confirmed cases and deaths in China – could be much higher some claim.

The New Zealand Herald has published a new report that alleges Chinese authorities have resorted to cremating bodies in secret.

DW News East Asia correspondent William Yang cited a report from Chinese-language news outlet Initium, which said cremation facilities in Wuhan, the epicenter of the deadly virus, were receiving bodies directly from hospitals without proper identification and were excluded from the official record.

“So, there are reasons to remain skeptical about what China has been sharing with the world because while they have been more transparent about certain things related to the virus, they continue to be sketchy and unreliable in other aspects,” said Yang.

“Without properly identifying these patients, which means there are patients who died from the virus but not adding to the official record. That shows the current death toll of 133 that we are seeing is way too low,” he said.

We noted Thursday night that over 100,000 Chinese had been placed under observation for suspected coronavirus.

The virus has uncontrollably spread across China, forcing the U.S. State Department to evacuate diplomats and citizens from certain parts of the country, but has also warned Americans not to travel to the region because of the outbreak.

The new travel advisory was issued hours after the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a global health emergency. “Those currently in China should consider departing using commercial means,” the department said in the advisory.

Putting the coronavirus in the context of the deadly SARS epidemic, the coronavirus pandemic has now officially exceeded SARS in cumulative cases in just two weeks.

New accounts are showing that things have gotten so severe in Wuhan, that officials are locking people inside their own apartments.

Second Chinese City Bars Residents From Leaving Their Homes, Apple Closes All Offices & Stores In China

Though US has taken steps to stop foreigners who might be an infection risk from entering the country, airline employees are pushing for all American carriers to temporarily suspend all flights to and from China. The Association of Flight Attendants, representing 50,000 flight attendants at 20 airlines has called for “clear direction from our government to U.S. airlines to pull down all travel to China until the spread of coronavirus is contained,” in a statement shared by ABC News.

“It is critical that any crew potentially infected through travel to and from China not be assigned to any additional flights until safely through the fourteen-day incubation period,” the statement added.

Back in Wuhan, the government is dialing up the propaganda as public anger (which has been manipulated to focus on local officials who have been scapegoated by Beijing) crests.

There’s more where that came from.

Update (1230ET): Vietnam has become the latest country to strictly limit travel with China. SCMP reports that the country has banned all passenger plane traffic to and from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.

Apparently, Vietnam, which has confirmed several cases, including at least one instances of human-to-human transmission, doesn’t think much of the WHO’s assurances. Can’t say we blame them. Meanwhile, back in China, a citizen journalist took a video of a sea of unopened boxes allegedly containing medical supplies. We’ve reported in the past that the government is largely relying on ‘volunteers’ to open boxes and sort supplies, leading to massive backlogs.

But of course Beijing has everything under control…just so long as you don’t leave your house/apartment/whatever.

* * *

….To that end, a report reportedly signed by hundreds of doctors blaming the Communist Party’s leadership for waiting a month to inform the Chinese public and the international community that the virus could spread from human-to-human contact. The leadership was apparently aware of this fact as early as mid-December, yet they actively concealed it until the situation started getting out of hand and cases were being confirmed in neighboring countries.

China’s finance ministry has finally announced that it’s going to lift import taxes on American-made medical products needed to help combat the outbreak (it’s interesting how it took them nearly – checks notes – two months since the start of the outbreak to lift the trade-war tariffs).

ABC News is the latest American media outlet to collect footage from Wuhan via drone. The haunting footage clearly shows the scope of the lockdown. An entire city as big as New York, with almost nobody outside or in the streets.

We got some interesting corporate news overnight: Apple announced early Saturday that it would close all of its stores and offices in China at least through Feb. 9. Already, the factories of many of its suppliers (like Foxconn) have been impacted by holiday “extensions” that will keep them closed through at least early Feb.

As of midday on Saturday, at least 19 provinces, municipalities and regions have told businesses not to resume work before Feb. 10 at the earliest, according to CNBC, which also noted that Disney, Tesla several US airlines and myriad other American business have suspended operations in China. Hubei, the center of the outbreak, has reportedly extended its Lunar New Year holiday until Feb. 13.

On Saturday, Huanggang, a city of 6 million people near Wuhan, has banned residents from leaving their homes in an effort to stop the coronavirus. The ban states that 1 person per family can leave every other day to buy basic needs.

It’s the first city to declare a lockdown on par with Wuhan’s total ban of people leaving their homes. Meanwhile Huanggang’s mayor warned on Saturday that a “significant” increase in the number of confirmed cases on Saturday or Sunday.

Here’s a video of a doctor from Huanggang saying the media won’t dare report the true infection totals from Huanggang, adding that it’s almost as bad as Wuhan.


JASON CHEN A doctor was filmed saying the media does not dare to report the true figures of infections in the city of Huanggang tweet 25Jan2020

The scapegoating of local officials by Beijing continued on Saturday, when more than 300 party officials from Huanggang were punished for failing in their duty.


Global Times coronavirus officials sacked tweet-1Feb2020

Though we’re hearing labels like these used far less often than we were just last week, it appears the “fearmongers” and “alarmists” were once again correct to be skeptical of the information coming out of Beijing. A few days ago, Zero Hedge was declared alarmists for discussing the possibility that nCoV could metastasize into a particularly deadly seasonal illness, like the flu. The mainstream press has now apparently decided to take the warnings of epidemiologists seriously.

coronavirus compared to other viruses

When the WHO first declared that travel restrictions on China simply weren’t necessary, even as Beijing quarantined more than 50 million of its own people, we wondered how the organization could possibly expect the world to listen, considering that Russia had already closed its border with China, and dozens of countries had already imposed some kind of restriction, while more than 40 airlines had suspended routes to China.

On Saturday morning, Australia joined the US in temporarily blocking all foreigners who have recently visited China. Japan said it would bar visitors who had been to Hubei in the last 2 weeks, or had passports issued in Hubei, according to the New York Times.

Then we heard Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam tell the people that complete shutdown of travel to China wouldn’t be necessary. Once again, Lam was doing the leadership’s bidding to the detriment of her local popularity. By doing so, Lam has handed the workers all the ammunition they need to successfully challenge, and defeat, the city government.

Carrie Lam

Carrie Lam

Thousands of Hong Kong doctors, nurses and hospital employees have voted for a strike which could begin as early as Monday. The reason? To pressure the city government to close all borders with mainland China. This isn’t the first bout of virus-related unrest to rock Hong Kong. Last week, a group of locals set fires and rioted in response to rumors that the government planned to transform a newly built housing project nearby into a quarantine, according to SCMP.

Reports that the Hong Kong government has found 49 people from Hubei after searching about 500 hotels has only ratcheted up public anxiety. The individuals are reportedly being moved to quarantine centers.

The pledge of action by thousands of nurses and hospital workers is picking up steam as more local unions are joining the movement. Pretty soon, Lam will have no choice but to close the border with China, which would be a major blow to global confidence in Beijing
Hong Kong health care workers strike

The alliance of health care workers have a few other demands: that the government make clear policies to ensure a supply of surgical masks, a halt on non-emergency services and an increase in the number of isolation wards at hospitals, as well as better support for medical practitioners and an open promise not to punish those who participate in the strike.

Back on the mainland, local authorities have taken to using drones to ‘name and shame’ anybody who disobeys the isolation orders. Here are a few examples:

Global-Times-quarantine-tweet-31jan2020 local authorities have taken to using drones to 'name and shame' anybody who disobeys the isolation orders

Across China, drones are being loaded with disinfectant to spray public streets (another shock-and-awe measure with little real-world advantage).

Across China, drones are being loaded with disinfectant to spray public streets

Before we go, here’s a complete list of countries that have confirmed cases of the virus: Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia, Malaysia, Macau, Russia, France, the United States, South Korea, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Britain, Vietnam, Italy, India, the Philippines, Nepal, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Finland and Sweden.

Meanwhile, Thailand, Taiwan, Germany, Vietnam, Japan, France and the US has confirmed human-to-human transmission involving at least one person who hadn’t been to China.

The timing of this outbreak could not be worse: China confirms a case of H5N1 bird flu in Hunan, prompting authorities to cull 17,828 chickens as a precaution. Though we doubt mainlanders will be seeing many stories about that.

Did China’s Tencent Accidentally Leak The True Terrifying Coronavirus Statistics

by Tyler Durden 05February2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/health/did-chinas-tencent-accidentally-leak-true-terrifying-coronavirus-statistics

Ten days ago, shortly after China first started reporting the cases and deaths associated with the coronavirus epidemic, a UK researcher predicted that over 250,000 Chinese would be infected with the virus by February 4. And while according to official Chinese data, the number of infections has indeed soared in the past two weeks, at just under 25,000 (and roughly 500 deaths), it is a far cry from this dismal prediction, about ten times below that predicted by the epidemiologists.

coronavirus cases-4February2020

Is this discrepancy possible? Is the epidemic truly far less serious than conventional epidemiological models predicted? Or is China merely hiding the full extent of the problem?

After all, it the WSJ itself reported in late January , China was explicitly manipulating the casualty number by listing pneumonia as the cause of death instead of coronavirus. Subsequent reports that Wuhan officials were rushing to cremate coronavirus casualties before they could be counted did not add to the credibility of the official data.

But the biggest hit to the narrative and China’s officially reported epidemic numbers came overnight, when a slip up in China’s TenCent may have revealed the true extent of the coronavirus epidemic on the mainland. And it is nothing short than terrifying.

As the Taiwan Times reports in a report first spotted by user @TheHKGroup, over the weekend, Tencent “seems to have inadvertently released what is potentially the actual number of infections and deaths, which were astronomically higher than official figures“, and were far closer to the catastrophic epidemic projections made by Jonathan Read.

According to the report, late on Saturday evening, Tencent, on its webpage titled “Epidemic Situation Tracker”, showed confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (2019nCoV) in China as standing at 154,023, 10 times the official figure at the time. It listed the number of suspected cases as 79,808, four times the official figure.

And while the number of cured cases was only 269, well below the official number that day of 300, most ominously, the death toll listed was 24,589, vastly higher than the 300 officially listed that day.

Tencent screengrab as of late Feb 1, showing far higher infections.

Moments later, Tencent updated the numbers to reflect the government’s “official” numbers that day.

Screengrab showing higher numbers (left), chart showing “official” numbers (right). (Internet image)This was not the first time Tencent has done this: as Taiwan Times notes, Chinese netizens have noticed that Tencent has on at least three occasions posted extremely high numbers, only to quickly lower them to government-approved statistics.

This is where it gets even more bizarre: contrary to claiming that this was just a “fat finger” mistyping of data, observant Chinese netizens also noticed that each time the screen with the large numbers appears, it shows a comparison with the previous day’s data which demonstrates a “reasonable” incremental increase, much like comparisons of official numbers.

This led many in the mainland to speculate that Tencent has two sets of data, the real data and “processed” data.

In short, two camps have emerged: one, the more optimistic, speculates that a coding problem could be causing the real “internal” data to accidentally appear. The other, far more pessimistically inclined, believes that someone behind the scenes is trying to leak the real numbers, as “the “internal” data held by Beijing may not reflect the true extent of the epidemic.”

Indeed, as repeatedly pointed out here and according to multiple sources in Wuhan, many coronavirus patients are unable to receive treatment and die outside of hospitals. Furthermore, a severe shortage of test kits also leads to a lower number of diagnosed cases of infection and death. In addition, there have been many reports of doctors being ordered to list other forms of death instead of coronavirus to keep the death toll artificially low.

What is the truth?

We leave it up to readers, but keep this in mind: on Jan 29, Zeng Guang, the chief scientist of epidemiology at China’s CDC, made a rare candid admission about why Chinese officials cannot tell people the truth in an interview with the state-run tabloid Global Times: “The officials need to think about the political angle and social stability in order to keep their positions.

And then, on Monday, none other than China Xi’s called on all officials to quickly work together to contain the Coronavirus at a rare meeting of top leaders, saying the outcome would “directly impact social stability in the country.”

Well, if China is mostly concerned about social stability – as it should be for a nation of 1.4 billion – it is easy to comprehend why the entire political apparatus in China would be geared to presenting numbers which seem somewhat credible – in light of the barrage of videos of people dying on the street – but not so terrifying as to cause a countrywide panic.

Then again, if China indeed had over 154,000 cases and almost 25,000 deaths as of 5 days ago, then no attempts to mask the full extent and true severity of the pandemic have any hope of “containing” the truth.

Putting the coronavirus in the context of the deadly SARS epidemic, the coronavirus pandemic has now officially exceeded SARS in cumulative cases in just two weeks.

SACRIFICIAL CITY? Chinese Authorities Go Door to Door, Dragging People Away to MANDATORY Quarantine Camps

By Daisy Luther 8February2020 https://www.theorganicprepper.com/chinese-mandatory-quarantine-camps/

If you thought things in China had hit rock bottom with the quarantine of more than 400 million people, you’d be wrong. Shocking reports are emerging that are even more dystopian than the quarantine itself.

Multiple sources report that officials in China are now going door to door and checking for anyone who might be infected. If a member of the household is running a fever or displays any other possible symptom, they’re being taken away to be put into quarantine. Even worse, it appears that some contacts of people who have been confirmed to be infected are being quarantined too – you guessed it – with those who are already sick.

Again, I must emphasize that we don’t get this kind of news from official sources. People who put up these videos are risking their lives. In fact, quite a few of the citizen reporters who have been providing reliable reports have suddenly vanished over the past two days. While we can hope they just lost possession of their devices or access to the internet, or perhaps voluntarily went into hiding, the truth is likely to be far more dire. This secrecy and anonymity, however, does open the door for fraudulent reports, so while I do believe that these reports and videos I’m citing are likely to be true, I have no way to confirm this for sure.

The “Wartime” Response

The person leading the response to the virus is Vice Premier Sun Chunlan. Sun has said that China, and particularly Wuhan, face “wartime conditions.” And it what has to be the most authoritarian imagery ever, she warned citizens to cooperate, saying, “There must be no deserters, or they will be nailed to the pillar of historical shame forever.”

Sun has organized a near-military response, ordering medical personnel to work around the clock visiting each home in Wuhan, a city of 11.08 million people. When there, they are to check the temperature of each person in the house and question anyone who may have been in contact with a person who has been infected.

The New York Times reports:

Ms. Sun said that anyone requiring treatment should be rounded up, if necessary, and forced into quarantine.

“It must be cut off from the source,” she said of the virus, addressing city officials at the shelter, according to a Chinese news outlet, Modern Express. “You must keep a close eye. Don’t miss it.” (source)

But are they actually going there for treatment? Or are they going there to die?

The death rate from the coronavirus in Wuhan is 4.1%, while the death rate in the rest of China is 0.17%, according to the NYT article. This disparity has led many to wonder chillingly whether Wuhan is being sacrificed on the altar of “the greater good.”

With the sick being herded into makeshift quarantine camps, with minimal medical care, a growing sense of abandonment and fear has taken hold in Wuhan, fueling the sense that the city and surrounding province of Hubei are being sacrificed for the greater good of China. (source)

At the same time that some people are being unwillingly rounded up, others are going to hospitals for help and being turned away. These people are going from hospital to hospital to get tested, but they are neither being tested nor treated.

And others are being trapped in their homes. I wrote in this article that many residents were finding themselves literally welded into their homes. The video below shows a police car keeping the door of an apartment building closed. (Waiting for the welders, I guess?)


In Heilongjiang, there is a complete ban on private cars. Here’s a video of the arrest of a woman who was caught driving.


The Quarantine Camps

In Wuhan, the center of the outbreak, hastily organized quarantine camps are housing the sick with what is said to be minimal medical care. The camps are being housed in public buildings like arenas and convention centers. Those being taken to these mandatory camps are people with confirmed cases of coronavirus, suspected cases of coronavirus because they’re showing symptoms, people who have close contact with those confirmed or suspected to have coronavirus, and those who are running a fever when the medical Stasi come and take their temperatures.

And this could make matters worse.

Moreover, experts fear that penning potentially infected people in large quarantine camps—set up in a sports stadium, an exhibition center, and a building complex—with minimal medical care could make the sick sicker and let the whole gamut of infectious diseases run rampant among the confined people. (source)

Imagine the effect of being taken to one of these camps on anyone who is taken into custody who actually doesn’t have the coronavirus. If they don’t have it already, it seems it would only be a matter of time before they, too, become infected, adding to the sacrificial air of the response.

The people in the video below are only suspected to have been in contact with an infected person, yet they’re being taken to be quarantined with the sick.

Are people spreading the word being punished with quarantine?

As I mentioned above, several citizen journalists who have been apparently reliable sources of information have completely vanished over the past couple of days. But that isn’t the only crackdown.  This video alleges that authorities are checking cell phones to see if citizens are posting information about what is happening in China. (Although one must wonder how someone else was able to take cellphone footage of this and retain his or her phone.)


 

Some speculate that whistleblowers may be deliberately exposed to the virus by being put into quarantine with the infected as punishment.

What aren’t they telling us?

China has repeatedly turned down offers of assistance from the World Health Organization and has not allowed Taiwan to accept help from the WHO either.

Alex Azar, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services forced the issue in a press conference.

On January 6, we offered to send a CDC team to China that could assist with these public health efforts.

I reiterated that offer when I spoke to China’s Minister of Health on Monday, and it was reiterated again via the World Health Organization today.

We are urging China: More cooperation and transparency are the most important steps you can take toward a more effective response.

Beyond that, all options for dealing with infectious disease spread have to be on the table, including travel restrictions.

But diseases are not terribly good at respecting borders, so we would have to assess carefully whether the evidence recommends any steps beyond the thoroughly tested methods I just described. (source)

With this third very public offer of assistance, the Chinese government finally allowed a handful of American scientists into the country.

The government there has unleashed a wave of unsurpassed censorship with brutal punishment for those who flout it. This should tell anyone that as awful as the reports are, the reality is far worse.

I cannot fathom anyone watching these reports of mandatory quarantines, door to door checks, and authoritarian crackdowns who wouldn’t want to get prepared for the possibility of an extended lockdown here in the United States. Yet every time I read a report on this, I see some person in the comments section saying, “bUT ThE FLU hAs KiLLeD 8000 pEoPLe ThiS yEaR!”

And honestly, I believe that is the most ignorant response imaginable. I don’t care if you’re a doctor, an essential oil seller, or a member of Mensa. If this was comparable to influenza, would China be cutting its own economic throat during the busiest time of the year? Closing down the country at Chinese New Year would be the equivalent to the United States closing down the country for the entire month of December while banning Christmas, Hanukah, and New Year’s Eve. We’re talking billions of dollars in lost revenue in China right now. Billions.

Whatever the hell is going on over there, it is definitely much worse than the “flu.” And we don’t even know the half of it.

China’s tragic choice: Run the factories and sacrifice the workers, or halt the factories and lose the nation

11February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-11-chinas-tragic-choice-run-the-factories-and-sacrifice-the-workers-coronavirus-pandemic.html

(Natural News) As the coronavirus pandemic continues to explode across China, the communist Chinese regime faces a desperate choice. I covered this in a special Saturday video report with InfoWars.com (see below), as well as on a hard-hitting interview today with Alan Keyes and Bob Sisson on the IAMtv channel (see video below).

Essentially, China must now decide to either run the factories and lose up to 15% of the workers to the virus, or close the factories and lose the nation to economic collapse and political revolution.

Yes, it’s that bad. (Welcome to the end of the world as we know it.)

If you run the factories and pretend the outbreak isn’t real, you keep the economy humming but you end up sacrifice a large number of workers who get killed by the coronavirus pandemic. While China currently claims a 2.1% mortality rate, realistic assessments put that number closer to 15%.

If you close the factories and enforce long-term quarantines to save lives, you suffer a devastating economic implosion, likely followed by massive social upheaval and possible collapse of the ruling communist regime. After all, people only tolerate communism when they have enough to eat and some of them are getting rich. Take away the food, the money and the public safety, and any regime will struggle to stay in power.

Watch my full special report interview with Alex Jones to hear more details, courtesy of Banned.video:

China is already taking the steps to protect the factories while sacrificing the people

It’s now clear that China has chosen to restart the factories, declare the pandemic conquered, cover up the reality of the infections and deaths, and order people back to work to keep the economic miracle machine running. In order to achieve this, China must:

1) Fudge all the daily infection and death numbers to create the illusion that the pandemic is waning. Watch for the daily updates to demonstrate a calculated slowing in the rate of infection.

2) Deny the CDC or WHO access to the front lines of the pandemic to avoid them finding out it’s exploding out of control.

3) Control the media by arresting (and executing) whistleblowers who try to speak out about what’s really happening there. Pressure the tech giants to censor independent voices and protect the official Chinese narrative (which is already being done).

4) Find clever ways to fake the science, such as launching new near-instant test kits that have a 50% – 70% false negative rate (which has just been done), meaning they fail to diagnose 50% – 70% of infections. This allows the government to further claim falling infection numbers.

5) Demand the nations of the world resume air flights and run well-funded propaganda campaigns to invite tourists to return to China.

The net result of all this, of course, will be a second wave of exploding infections and deaths, but as long as the communist regime can control the narrative, they can pretend none of this is actually happening. The WHO will obediently parrot the commie narrative, and China will lean on its U.S. spies such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein to pressure the U.S. government to resume international flights and open traveler traffic.

China will be seeking to export the pandemic so that other nations share the pain

Part of this goal is to export the pandemic to other countries to force them to “share the pain” of China. If your own ship is taking on water and sinking, the way to regain some competitive advantage is to blow holes in everybody else’s ships, in other words. By exporting the coronavirus to Taiwan, Japan, Korea and the United States, China can unleash economic chaos in those nations and shift the blame for a global outbreak, claiming those other nations failed to contain it.

Hence the whole purpose of pressuring the WHO to rename the virus, removing the word “Wuhan” from it entirely, in order to erase its origins from history.

Meanwhile, China is hard at work fudging the numbers, burning the bodies, arresting the whistleblowers, executing the dissidents, ordering Google to censor online videos, all while denying the reality of the pandemic outbreak. (The tech giants are more than happy to comply, since they all work for the pro-depopulation globalists now anyway.)

Behind the scenes, China has no doubt convinced themselves the coronavirus was an engineered bioweapons attack launched by the USA, and they surely want to return the attack by deliberately sending infected human weapons into Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, sneezing on cell phones and spreading viral mayhem at every opportunity.

Factory workers will be pushed until they literally drop dead

What all this means is that China is going to power through the pandemic at gunpoint, forcing workers to run the machines until they literally drop dead. At that point, rapid response cremation teams will scurry away with the bodies and heave them into mass ovens that are already running 24/7.

China will soon dispense will all safety gear such as hazmat suits, masks and gloves. For one thing, eliminating the gear creates the (false) impression that the virus no longer exists. But more importantly, the government has already come to realize that everyone is going to be exposed sooner or later. They know that roughly 85% will survive exposure and 15% will die. The 85% will be able to come into contact with the virus even while wearing no safety gear, since they’ve already been exposed and cured. According to media reports, even China’s own military and police personnel are already largely infected. It’s getting to the point where wearing protective gear is pointless.

Effectively, the Chinese government has now decided to run a massive medical experiment called, “expose everyone and see what happens.” They figure they can still survive after a 15% mortality rate, especially since Chinese citizens own no guns and have no First Amendment freedoms to speak out.

Watch my full interview with Bob Sisson and Alan Keyes for more details:

Once the virus has burned through China, they can deploy the virus as a global weapon with impunity

Here’s the final step in this nefarious plan: Once the coronavirus burns through the Chinese population, the entire nation of China is now immune to the pandemic, which means China can deliberately release the virus in California, for example, and cause mass chaos across the USA without fear of its own factories experiencing any further disruption.

It’s an incredibly simple matter to bypass airport screening and CDC measures. You could almost call it “amateur hour” in terms of bioweapons tactics: You simply inject 100 volunteers with the virus, put them on airplanes to 100 American cities, have them stay in hotel rooms for 3-4 days while the virus incubates, then order them to run around the cities sneezing on everything that other people touch, such as hand rails, grocery products, elevator buttons or door handles.

The virus does the rest of the work for you. Within a month, multiple outbreaks are reported across America, and China gets to decry the failures of the CDC, shifting attention away from its own failures, claiming that even the USA can’t contain the virus.

The CDC has zero defenses against a determined, deliberate spreading of the virus by a malicious party acting with ill intent. Any honest CDC intelligence officer would admit this. Outbreaks are difficult to stop even when the population is obedient and compliant. When bad actors wish to spread a pandemic, it’s child’s play. (12 Monkeys)

To achieve this status, China must first sacrifice up to 15% of its own population (well over 100 million people), and it must maintain control over the population through draconian police state measures (i.e. gunpoint control over all speech and ordering people to pretend that no one is missing or dead). In effect, China is now carrying out what can legitimately be called a “coronavirus holocaust,” complete with cremation ovens, secret police, the executions of political dissidents and much more. And the total deaths in China will almost certainly exceed six million, by the way.

Historians will be writing about this Chinese government holocaust for a hundred years, if humanity even lasts that long.

China’s long term plan to destroy America with bioweapons

Never forget that China has long followed a plan to completely destroy the United States of America using biological weapons. As J.R. Nyquist writes for The Epoch Times:

Did China’s Plan to Destroy the United States Backfire?

In a secret speech given to high-level Communist Party cadres nearly two decades ago, Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Chi Haotian explained a long-range plan for ensuring a Chinese national renaissance.

He said there were three vital issues that must be grasped. The first was the issue of living space—because China is severely overpopulated and China’s environment is deteriorating. The second issue, therefore, was that the Communist Party must teach the Chinese people to “go out.” By this, Chi meant the conquest of new lands, in which a “second China” could be built by “colonization.” From this, arose the third vital issue: the “issue of America.”

Chi warned his listeners: “This appears to be shocking, but the logic is actually very simple. … [China is] in fundamental conflict with the Western strategic interest.” Therefore, the United States would never allow China to seize other countries to build a second China. The United States stands in China’s way.

“We are not as foolish as to want to perish together with America by using nuclear weapons,” the general said. “Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves.”

The answer is found in biological weapons.

“Of course,” he added, “we have not been idle. In the past years, we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind.”

The ruling Chinese Communist Party considers biological weapons to be the most important weapons for accomplishing their goal of “cleaning up America.” Chi credits former Party leader Deng Xiaoping with putting biological weapons ahead of all other weapon systems in the Chinese arsenal: “When Comrade Xiaoping was still with us, the Party Central Committee had the perspicacity to make the right decision not to develop aircraft carrier groups and focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can eliminate mass populations of the enemy country.”

In other words, even if China loses 15% of its own population, it is still committed to destroying America at any cost. So we should expect a wave of deliberate biological terrorism to be unleashed on U.S. soil in the months ahead.

“It’s Like A Horror Film”: Botched Wuhan Quarantine Left Dead Bodies In The Street, Sick Waiting Days For Care

by Tyler Durden 12February2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/its-horror-film-afp-sees-dead-bodies-street-sick-patients-waiting-days-care-wuhan

Western media organizations have published a series of in-depth reports attempting to illuminate what life on the ground at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak looks like. But few have captured the atmosphere of the situation quite like a team of AFP journalists who lingered in Wuhan after the lockdown, and have detailed their experiences in diary format.

The diary begins on Jan. 23, the day Wuhan was placed under lockdown. It starts as one might expect: Though the news was a shock, few tried to escape the city before the lockdown officially went into effect. Police chase the last travelers out of the railroad station.

coronavirus outbreak, Wuhan. Overwhelmed hospitals

But the situation doesn’t really start to escalate until Jan. 25, or New Year’s Day in China.

Those who went to worship at the city’s Guiyan temple, normally packed this time of year, found it empty: nobody was allowed inside.

“No-one is allowed inside in order to prevent the virus spreading,” a uniformed man – who is not wearing the compulsory mask – tells AFP.

On the fourth day of the crackdown, conditions in Wuhan really started to deteriorate. This marked the beginning of hard times for Wuhan. Overwhelmed hospitals arbitrarily turned people away if their swab tests came back negative for the virus. One man told an AFP reporter that he had been turned away by four hospitals, despite being seriously ill. “I haven’t slept,” he said. He was getting ready to wait in line all night to hopefully be admitted to another hospital.

For the first in their memory, the AFP reporters said Chinese out on the streets approached them to complain about the government’s handling of the lockdown.

“Like a horror film,” says one witness, who tells AFP bodies were left unattended for hours.

About 20 kilometers from the center for the city, police had set up roadblocks around the city’s perimeter. Nurses and other reinforcements were let in to help the exhausted medical personnel staffing the city’s hospitals.

By day five, all non-essential traffic had been banned from the city. Taxis have been requisitioned by the state to help transport people to hospitals.

One vast stretch of muddy ground in Wuhan was suddenly busy with cranes and heavy machinery as the state scrambled to build a new 1,000-bed facility. Soon, a second would begin nearby.

“We’ve got to go fast so we can beat the virus,” said one construction worker who had been working for nine hours, and was preparing to go off-shift near the construction site.

Volunteers ferry the sick to and from the hospital.

“We need to take the initiative and help out,” he says as he waits outside a clinic to take a patient home.

Countries have started to plan evacuations of their citizens from Wuhan. More than a dozen would eventually follow through. To boost morale, the government set up a display on the banks of the Yangtze river; four Chinese characters are lit up in pink: “Let’s go Wuhan.”

On day 6, the AFP spoke to a French doctor who had decided to stay in Wuhan, a Dr. Philippe Klein.

“It’s not an act of heroism,” he said. “It’s been well thought out, it’s my job.”

More signs of the government crackdown are beginning to appear: Guards take the temperature of customers at supermarkets and other stores hawking essential goods.

Then on day 8, the reporters saw their first dead body in the street. He’s a man, in his sixties, who is lying on his back in front of a closed furniture store. Officials in hazard suits slowly approach the body, taking every conceivable precaution.

The team of forensic experts who investigated the body are immediately sprayed with disinfectant. “It’s terrible,” one said. “So many have died in recent days.”

That was two weeks ago. Though there are fewer bodies in the streets, and sick suspects aren’t being turned away by hospitals so often, the situation has gotten considerably worse.

Epoch Times reporter Jennifer Zeng, who has been assiduously grabbing videos posted to Chinese social media and sharing them on Twitter, warned on Wednesday that the food shortage in Wuhan is becoming a crisis as the lockdown continues, despite the fact that China is supposedly once again open for business.


Super market in wuhan running out of supplies

This is one of the most details reports describing the opening days of the lockdown, and it seems to comport with everything else we’ve come to understand about the outbreak in Wuhan. These are the consequences of Chinese officials not recognizing the virus’s potential because they waited to share information about the virus and its genetic sequence with the international community, as BBG reports.

Is coronavirus a manufactured bioweapon that Chinese spies stole from Canada?

29January2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-29-coronavirus-a-manufactured-bioweapon-chinese-spies-stole-from-canada.html
The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is located only 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market which is the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak dubbed the Wuhan Coronavirus.
(Natural News) In 2019, a mysterious shipment sent from Canada to China was found to contain hidden coronavirus, which Chinese agents working at a Canadian laboratory reportedly stole, obviously without permission.

Reports reveal that these Chinese agents were working undercover for the Chinese Biological Warfare Program, and may have infiltrated North America for the sole purpose of hijacking this deadly virus in order to unleash it at a later date.

That unleashing could be the coronavirus outbreak that’s currently dominating media headlines – with as many as 44,000 people now infected – despite blame being assigned to contaminated food sold at the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, China – and here’s why.

It was back on June 13, 2012, when a 60-year-old man from Saudi Arabia was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah with a seven-day affliction of fever, cough, expectoration and shortness of breath. The man had no known history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was on no medications, and didn’t smoke, and tests revealed that he had become infected with a previously unknown strain of coronavirus.

However, tests could not reveal where the man had contracted coronavirus. So, Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki, the Egyptian virologist who was caring for the man, contacted Ron Fouchier, a premier virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, for advice.

Fouchier proceeded to sequence a sample of the virus sent to him by Dr. Zaki using a broad-spectrum “pan-coronavirus” real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method to distinguish it from other strains of coronavirus. He then sent it to Dr. Frank Plummer, the Scientific Director of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg, on May 4, 2013, where it was replicated for assessment and diagnostic purposes.

Scientists in Winnipeg proceeded to test this strain of coronavirus on animals to see which species could catch it. This research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, as well as with the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases, which is in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML).

NML, it’s important to note, has long conducted tests with coronavirus, having isolated and provided the first genome sequence of the SARS coronavirus. This lab had also identified another type of coronavirus, known as NL63, back in 2004.

Formerly respected scientist allowed multiple deadly viruses besides coronavirus to be shipped to China

Fast-forward to today, and the recent discovery of the mystery shipment containing coronavirus can be traced all the way back to these samples that were sent to Canada for analysis, suggesting that the current coronavirus outbreak was likely stolen as a bioweapon to be released for just such a time as this.

According to reports, the shipment occurred back in March of 2019, which caused a major scandal with biowarfare experts who questioned why Canada was purportedly sending lethal viruses to China. It was later discovered in July that Chinese virologists had stolen it, and were forcibly dispatched as a result.

“The NML is Canada’s only level-4 facility and one of only a few in North America equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, including Ebola, SARS, Coronavirus, etc.,” explains a report by Great Game India, as republished by Zero Hedge.

“The NML scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab along with her husband, another biologist, and members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu,” it goes on to explain, adding that Qiu had served as head of the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section of the Special Pathogens Program at Canada’s NML.

A formerly respected scientist in China, Qiu began studying powerful viruses in 2006. In 2014, many of these viruses she studied, including not only coronavirus but also Machupo, Junin, Rift Valley Fever, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, and Hendra, all suddenly appeared in China as part of a massive hijacking.

The lies we are being told about the Coronavirus

05February2020 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-05-lies-we-are-being-told-about-coronavirus.html

(Natural News) Lies are a powerful form of magic; they can mislead large groups of people into making terrible errors, as well as cause them to be blind to the obvious. Lies make people hurt themselves while thinking they are helping themselves. It is a truly dark and horrific act of sorcery.

(Article by Brandon Smith republished from Alt-Market.com)

As the world stands at the edge of a global pandemic event, the people who are immune to the effects of lies have an opportunity to take action should the virus continue to expand beyond the borders of China. We have a small window of time, perhaps a couple of months, in which we can prepare ourselves for the fallout and ensure we are as protected as we can be. This means taking precautions to prevent viral transmission, increasing the strength of our own immune systems, prepping for the loss of supply lines and freight shipments to retailers, organizing family, friends and neighbors for mutual aid and security, as well as preparing for the inevitable government attempts at martial law.

Of course, a person cannot or will not take any of these measures as long as they believe that the virus is not a threat, or they think that the pandemic will have little effect on their daily lives. I have recently seen a discomforting level of propaganda and disinformation agents invading the media and discussion boards related to this issue. Whenever I see such an intense disinformation campaign surrounding an event, this tells me a couple of things:

1)  If they are trying to overtly downplay the seriousness of the event while lying about the facts involved, it tells me that the event is a legitimate threat and it will probably get worse as time passes.

2)  If they all push the same false narrative and talking points it tells me that this is an organized effort paid for by a larger party with extensive resources.

If the narrative glosses over or hides recently revealed evidence by claiming that the event is “all hype”, then it is designed to create inaction in the public – It is designed to make us apathetic, which means there is a concerted conspiracy to harm us. It is not just an attempt to hide the guilt of the people involved in creating the crisis.

So what are some of the most insidious lies being spread right now on the virus threat? Lets go through a quick list of those I’ve identified so far:

Lie #1: Deaths Caused By The Coronavirus Are Nothing Compared To The Death Rate Of The Average Flu…

This lie seems to be the most common being used to plant seeds of apathy in the public consciousness right now.  I have even heard people on the street regurgitate it verbatim as they try to convince themselves that all is well.  But even using official numbers, which are likely false and greatly reduced, the argument is simply wrong on every level.

There is a big difference between “number of deaths” and the actual “death rate” of a virus. The flu infects tens of millions of people annually around the world with deaths in the US numbering usually under 10,000. In the US in the 2019-2020 season so far, the flu infected over 9 million people resulting in 4800 deaths; meaning the death rate of the flu is minor compared to the number of sick.  Flu deaths are usually collated over the course of a year, yet people are already trying to compare death rates to the coronavirus, which has only been active for a few weeks.

Keep in mind also that the CDC has been called out for greatly inflating influenza death rates in order to push vaccine propaganda.  They consistently attach flu death numbers with pneumonia deaths; which I would point is is the exact OPPOSITE of what the Chinese are doing with the coronavirus numbers.

The coronavirus has been active for about a month in China, it has a hibernation of around two weeks, and, China has been lying extensively about the number of deaths associated with the disease by labeling most deaths due to pneumonia.  We truly have no idea what the potential death rate of this illness is. What we do know is that it behaves much like SARS, which had a death rate of around 11%.  According to official numbers the coronavirus transmits faster and has already killed more people in a few weeks than SARS did in over a year.

The notion that the virus only kills the elderly is also incorrect.  The two deaths now confirmed outside of China were both men in their 30’s and 40’s.

When considering the issue of viral death rate, we have to take into account the capacity of local medical facilities in handling patient load.  If hospitals are only handling a few cases at a time, then the patients will get better overall treatment and less deaths will occur.  But, if hospitals are overwhelmed with thousands of cases at a time, as is happening in China, then treatment quality will go down and many more people will die.  A minimal death rate outside of China today does not mean a minimal death rate tomorrow should the virus spread beyond hospital capacity.

With the flu, people can usually treat themselves with ease at home; the coronavirus is obviously much more dangerous.  No country in modern times has EVER quarantined over 50 million people in 16 cities because of the average flu. The comparison between the coronavirus and the flu is patently ridiculous. There is no comparison. The coronavirus is on another level entirely.

Lie #2: The Coronavirus Came From An Animal Market And The Claim It Is Engineered Is A “Conspiracy Theory”…

The phrase “conspiracy theory” is usually exploited as a way to dismiss facts and evidence without consideration on the basis that the official story is the only story that has any validity. In other words, the official story requires no justification because the authorities are infallible and always have our best interests at heart.

The problem is, governments and the mainstream media have been caught lying over and over again about issues far less important than a global pandemic, so I’m not sure why we should trust ANYTHING they say ever. There is considerable evidence that China has been lying incessantly about the number of sick and dead due to the coronavirus, including leaked accounts from medics and other people at ground zero in Wuhan.  These people are now being silenced by the Chinese government.  In fact, the Chinese government was suppressing coverage and information on the coronavirus from the very beginning of the contagion, which helped allow it to spread unchecked.

Now, social media companies are taking action to remove people who try to document the facts of the virus and its potential source in the name of “stopping fake news”.  Anyone who questions the official narrative is not only a “conspiracy theorist” but also a “danger” to the public.  This narrative is supported by US government officials:

“These lies can cause immediate and tangible harm to people, and the platforms must act to stop them from spreading,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) said in a statement to The Hill.  “It’s critical that Americans receive verified, trustworthy information about the coronavirus and heed the advice of our country’s public health officials as we learn more about its potential impact here at home…”

The facts are the facts, and if the facts suggest a conspiracy, then so be it.  Only 20 miles away from the market in question stands the LARGEST Level 4 Biohazard Lab in Asia, which studies directly into the world’s deadliest pathogens including SARS and coronavirus.  In 2017, experts warned that a virus could escape the labs in Wuhan because of lax containment standards.  To put this in perspective, it would be like an Ebola outbreak striking the city of Atlanta and then blamed on a food market only 20 miles from the CDC.  It looks suspicious…

Last year, Chinese researchers were dismissed from a Level 4 lab in Winnipeg, Canada without public explanation, but the same lab was exposed last year for sharing deadly virus samples with China, including Ebola and henipavirus.  One of the Chinese researchers work focus was the SARS virus.  Media and government attention in Canada at the time of the scandal was on concerns that the lab in Winnipeg was supplying viral samples that would be used in China’s biowarfare programs.

According to a paper published by virologists in India, the coronavirus genetic code also contains proteins that are exactly like those found in HIV. Interestingly, coronavirus patients have been shown to respond positively to drugs that are meant to treat HIV and AIDS carriers.  Through official pressure the paper has now been retracted and the authors have said they will “revise it”. But, the whole point of peer review is for the data to be examined by others in the field and then proven or disproven. If the data can be reproduced, then it needs to be taken seriously.

This is not what the CDC and other official institutions on disease study want. They seem intent on dismissing any information outright that suggests the coronavirus might have been made in a lab rather than in nature.

If true, the chances of coronavirus containing protein combinations identical to HIV in nature are astronomical, meaning, the virus was engineered.  If the virus is proven to be engineered, then this makes future narratives and propaganda harder to implement.  For example, it will be much harder to blame the pandemic on “global warming” if the virus was created by a bunch of guys in lab coats rather than in nature.

To repeat the facts, Wuhan is a hub for China’s largest biohazard labs and these labs are suspected by biological warfare experts of being involved in bioweapons testing.   Until there is more independent examination of the virus (the original strain before mutation), no one knows for certain what the source is.

The mainstream media has been very aggressive in denying any links to bioweaponry, claiming that there “is no evidence” linking Wuhan’s labs to the virus; yet, there is FAR MORE evidence of the involvement of the biohazard labs than there is evidence proving that the virus originated an animal market. They have simply decided that the animal market story is the tale they prefer, and so it has become the official story.

Lie #3: The Virus Won’t Have Any Effect On America

The general thrust of the mainstream view of the coronavirus has been to assert that the US will not be affected and that concerns are “overblown”.  The UN’s World Health Organization continues to refuse to take the event very seriously, and even Larry Kudlow, Trump’s Director of the National Economic Council, claims the damage to the US economy will be ‘minimal’.

Now, firstly I have to say I would take the economic analysis of a long time cocaine addict with a grain of salt.  This is the same guy who was wildly incorrect in all his calls on the housing bubble in 2005-2006, and yet he is now advising the White House on financial crisis events?  But lets set the incompetence of Kudlow aside for a moment and consider that perhaps he is just reading from a script prepared for him by others.  Certainly, there are a lot of people out there that would like to keep the public ignorant of the depth of the situation, and they will give all sorts of half-assed rationales as to why they lie.

For the Chinese authorities, the pandemic is an undeniable fact of life, but they will say their economy and global image required the truth to be “tempered” to prevent civil unrest and to stop investors pulling from their money out of Chinese markets en masse.

For US authorities who waited far too long to start shutting down flights from China carrying multiple infected, the claim will be that they had to lie to prevent general panic and market panic.

For the UN’s World Health Organization that lied about China “containment” and actually downplayed the danger of travel to China for a time while the virus was raging and human-to-human transmission was confirmed, I see no excuse really. Their behavior, and the behavior of the US and Chinese governments makes me suspect that they WANT the pandemic to spread.

As I write this the 11th confirmed case of coronavirus has been identified in the US with many more suspected cases still under observation. Obviously, the virus is here already, but the issue of how much it will affect Americans is being diminished or buried in an endless stream of propaganda.

Given enough time, a viral outbreak that spreads as fast as the coronavirus with a death rate of 5% or more is going to cause negative effects in every facet of the US economy.  But in our current window of the progression of the pandemic, I think it’s important to point out that even if the death rate is low in the US, there is no escaping the economic consequences attached to this event.

The US economy is interdependent with multiple nations, and is tightly connected to China. The greatest danger of globalism in terms of economics is that it forces national economies into losing the redundancies that protect them from systemic collapse. When one major economy goes down, it brings down all other economies with it.

Not only that, but the US financial structure is precariously unstable anyway, with record levels of national debt, consumer debt and corporate debt, not to mention steep declines in manufacturing and demand. The US sits atop one of the most massive economic bubbles of all time – The Everything Bubble, created by the Federal Reserve over ten years of stimulus measures, barely keeping the system alive in a state of zombification.

The bubble was always going to collapse. In fact, recent events in Fed repo markets suggest it was already collapsing. The coronavirus outbreak is a perfect cover event for this implosion.  To understand why a collapse event might be preferred by a certain minority of people within the elitist establishment, read my last article ‘How Viral Pandemic Benefits The Globalist Agenda’.

As I have argued for the past couple of years, all that is needed to bring down the US economy is one major trigger event. The idea that a global pandemic would not damage the American system already teetering on the edge of the abyss is simply absurd. This event has the capacity to cause crisis around the world, not just in China.

Lie #4:  The Virus Is Contained

You are going to hear this lie often in the next month or two.  I’ve heard it several times already from Chinese and US authorities in the past few weeks, and clearly their definition of the word “contained” must be different from mine.

China’s official sickness count and death toll rises exponentially by the day, and this is not accounting for the number of sick and dead they are hiding.  Over 50 million people are now in forced quarantine and martial law measures have been implemented.  Hong Kong’s hopes of containment have been dashed and officials now expect the outbreak to grow worse in the region.

Japan just announced that a man carrying the virus boarded a cruise liner and then departed, infecting at least ten people in the process and forcing the ship into quarantine for the next two weeks.

A woman in Santa Clara, California carrying the virus came back from China and had been in the US for around 10 DAYS before the illness was identified.  Meaning, every single person she came in contact with in that time is now a potential carrier, and for the next two weeks they won’t know they are contagious.  These are just a few examples of why it is foolish to write off this situation as “contained”; you cannot contain what you cannot identify.

The disinformation campaign seems designed to hide the true source of the virus, but also to keep the masses lethargic and inactive. We are meant to sit and wait while the virus and the potential economic catastrophe runs us over. Do not fall for the con; prepare accordingly, and never accept what lying governments and mainstream media outlets tell you as the whole truth.  It is better to take precautions you might not need than to be found very stupid and desperate down the road because the “experts” told you it was all hype.

Citizen Journalists Who Exposed Beijing’s Lies In Wuhan Have Suddenly Vanished

by Tyler Durden 07February2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/citizen-journalists-who-exposed-beijings-lies-wuhan-have-suddenly-vanished

As we reported late Thursday evening, the death toll from the viral outbreak on mainland China has surpassed 600. With global markets once again in the red, Bloomberg reports that Beijing has silenced two of the citizen journalists responsible for much of the horrifying footage seeping onto western social media.

As BBG’s reporter explains, Chinese citizen journalists Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin have effectively been “the world’s eyes and ears” inside Wuhan (much of the film produced by American news organizations has consisted of drone footage). In recent days, SCMP and other news organizations reporting on the ground and publishing in English have warned that Beijing has stepped up efforts to censor Chinese social media after allowing citizens to vent their frustrations and share news without the usual scrutiny.

Chen Qiushi

On Wednesday, China said its censors would conduct “targeted supervision” on the largest social media platforms including Weibo, Tencent’s WeChat and ByteDance’s Douyin. All in an effort to mask the dystopian nightmare that life in cities like Wuhan has become.

But that brief period of informational amnesty is now over, apparently. Fang posted a dramatic video on Friday showing him being forcibly detained and dragged off to a ‘quarantine’. He was detained over a video showing corpses piled up in a Wuhan hospital. However, he has already been released.

Chen, meanwhile, seems to have vanished without a trace, and is believed to still be in government detention. Last week, we shared one of Chen’s more alarming videos documenting the severe medical supply shortages and outnumbered medical personnel fighting a ‘losing battle’ against the outbreak.

The crackdown on these journalists comes amid an outpouring of public anger over the death of a doctor who was wrongly victimized by police after attempting to warn the public about the outbreak. Beijing tried to cover up the death, denying it to the western press before the local hospital confirmed.

The videos supplied by the two citizen journos have circulated most freely on twitter, which is where most in-the-know Chinese go for their latest information about the outbreak. Many “hop” the “great firewall” via a VPN.

“There’s a lot more activity happening on Twitter compared with Weibo and WeChat,” said Maya Wang, senior China researcher at Human Rights Watch. There has been a Chinese community on Jack Dorsey’s short-message platform since before President Xi Jinping rose to power, she added, but the recent crackdown has weakened that social circle.

Chen has now been missing for more than 24 hours, according to several friends in contact with BBG News.

Chen has been out of contact for a prolonged period of time. His friends posted a message on his Twitter account saying he has been unreachable since 7 p.m. local time on Thursday. In a texted interview, Bloomberg News’s last question to Chen was whether he was concerned about his safety as he’s among the few people reporting the situation on the front lines.

It’s all part of the great crackdown that Beijing is enforcing, even as the WHO continues to praise the Communist Party for its ‘transparency’.

“After lifting the lid briefly to give the press and social media some freedom,” said Wang about China’s ruling Communist Party, the regime “is now reinstating its control over social media, fearing it could lead to a wider-spread panic.”

With a little luck, the world might soon learn Chen’s whereabouts. Then again, there’s always the chance that he’s never heard from again.

World Health Organization’s China bootlicking and bad science has destroyed its credibility

by Tiana Lowe | 01April2020 https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-whos-china-bootlicking-and-bad-science-has-destroyed-its-credibilityhttps://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-whos-china-bootlicking-and-bad-science-has-destroyed-its-credibility

There is very little reason to listen to the World Health Organization ever again. Ever.

Its functionaries aren’t just bootlicking tankies running cover for the Chinese dictatorship in the facile hopes of some greater good. The WHO has gone beyond even that disgrace, debasing itself for the Chinese Communist Party while spreading utter junk science. In just two months, this organization has permanently discredited itself and has no more credibility to lose.

 

The WHO’s dictatorial sycophancy long predates the coronavirus. Beijing’s stranglehold over the organization began in earnest in 2006, when its hand-picked candidate won the election to become the WHO’s director-general. When Margaret Chan, herself a Chinese national, took charge of the organization, so did the interests of the communist party.

 

Chan notoriously praised the North Korean healthcare system as the “envy” of “other developing countries” less than a decade after her predecessor, Gro Harlem Brundtland, claimed it was on the brink of collapse. Chan also allied the WHO with Bashar Assad, declaring the Syrian dictator “a president who is working for his people and his country” just a few years before he was caught red-handed massacring his own people. Syria also strong-armed the WHO into silencing a positive report about Israeli health conditions. Soon before leaving her post, Chan barred Taiwan, already limited to participating in WHO meetings solely as an observer, from the WHO’s annual assembly. Before leaving, Chan brought Xi Jinping to the WHO headquarters, the first such visit by any Chinese dictator.

 

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Chan’s successor and current WHO director-general, is not from China, but he is no less a puppet of the regime and friend to dictators. The Chinese Communist Party, the third-largest financial contributor to the WHO, backed the Ethiopian’s electoral bid, and it has certainly gotten its money’s worth in the current crisis.

 

Tedros appointed Robert Mugabe a goodwill ambassador of the WHO in 2017, just a month before the Zimbabwean dictator was sacked as the result of a military coup. Zimbabweans’ average life expectancy is nearly two decades shorter than that of Americans, and the socialist government routinely cannot pay its doctors, who are forced to perform surgeries without gloves and use rope instead of bandages. The WHO revoked the appointment only after global backlash.

 

In 2019, the WHO authorized the inclusion of an entire chapter on traditional Chinese medicine (that is, unscientific superstition) in the latest version of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.

 

“To include TCM in the ICD is an egregious lapse in evidence-based thinking and practice,” Scientific American wrote of the move. “Data supporting the effectiveness of most traditional remedies are scant, at best.”

 

Then came the coronavirus.

In January, Tedros met with Xi in Beijing, where the WHO director-general lavished praise upon the Chinese dictator for his “transparency” and handling of the matter.

 

“We appreciate the seriousness with which China is taking this outbreak, especially the commitment from top leadership and the transparency they have demonstrated,” Tedros said a month after Beijing had already lied to the world that the coronavirus couldn’t spread from human to human and allowed 7 million people, an untold number of them infected, to leave Wuhan and travel who even knows where.

 

In February, Tedros lambasted the United States and other nations for taking the sensible step of banning travel from China. He claimed there was “no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade.” He then lauded China for “making us safer,” pushing back on a European journalist asking if Beijing put “pressure” on the organization to give it such “effusive praise.”

 

Despite clear evidence that the coronavirus would shut down the global economy, the WHO declined to deem it a pandemic until March 11, when already over 100,000 cases had been confirmed worldwide. Shortly thereafter, WHO Assistant Director-General Bruce Aylward pretended not to hear a question from journalist Yvonne Tong about reconsidering the WHO’s Taiwan ban and hung up the video call. When he called back, Tong reiterated her question.

 

“Well, we’ve already talked about China,” he responded shortly before ending the interview for good.

All the while, the WHO has continued to claim, falsely, that masks do not protect people from the coronavirus, even though studies indicate that surgical masks are 90% effective, tea towels are 72% effective, and cotton T-shirts are 50% effective against bacteria one-fifth the size of the coronavirus.

 

A possible explanation? To save more masks for China, which has exported faulty ones to the rest of the planet and not only hoarded its own but also raided those of other countries.

 

The U.S. contributes $115.4 million to the WHO, more than any other nation and nearly three times as much as China. After the coronavirus crisis wanes, hundreds of thousands of American lives lost and millions unemployed, it’ll be well worth asking why and whether it’s still worth it.

Korean Air Flight Attendant Working LAX Flights Diagnosed With Coronavirus

26February2020 https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/02/26/korean-air-flight-attendant-working-lax-flights-diagnosed-with-coronavirus/

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A flight attendant for Korean Air who worked several flights out of Los Angeles International Airport has been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The 24-year-old was diagnosed Tuesday in southern Seoul, according to the Korea Joongang Daily newspaper.

The flight attendant had worked flights between LAX and Seoul–Incheon International Airport on Feb. 19 and 20, according to South Korean media outlets.

The woman also serviced a flight from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Seoul on Feb. 15, South Korea’s Center for Disease Control said. She may have contracted the virus from a South Korean church group who were on a pilgrimage to Israel, the Yonghap News Agency reports.

So far, 30 members of that church group have been diagnosed with coronavirus, according to South Korean health authorities.

Korean Air has closed its operations center at Incheon Airport in order to disinfect the area.

Meanwhile, a 23-year-old U.S. soldier stationed at Camp Carroll in South Korea has also tested positive for coronavirus, U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) confirmed in a statement Tuesday.

He has been quarantined off-base.

“Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and USFK health professionals are actively conducting contact tracing to determine whether any others may have been exposed,” USFK said.

On Tuesday, concerns over the spread of the coronavirus forced organizers to postpone the Korea Times Music Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.

According to the Yonghap News Agency, South Korea has 1,261 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 12 deaths.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is spread from person-to-person through close contact, usually within 6 feet, and mainly via respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. People are likely most contagious when they are most symptomatic.

Grieving Chinese Families Can’t Bury Dead, Perform 2,000 Year-Old Tradition

by Tyler Durden 04April2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/mourning-chinese-families-cant-bury-dead-perform-2000-year-old-tradition

While the Chinese Communist Party claims they’ve suffered just 3,300 coronavirus deaths out of more than 60,000 who have died around the world as of this writing, evidence exists that the actual death toll across China is far higher – and could be more than 40,000.

And as long lines form at Wuhan funeral homes over the last two weeks, family members – some waiting up to six hours, have been collecting their loved ones in the hopes of giving them a proper funeral. In particular, mourning families want to be able to perform a ‘grave sweeping’ ritual that has been around for over two millennia – where families gather on the 15th day after the spring equinox to remove weeds and dirt from their ancestors’ graves.

Unfortunately, due to the backlog in urns, lost bodies, and Chinese authorities banning, or severely limiting tomb-sweeping rituals due to the large crowds which gather at cemetaries, mourners in Wuhan won’t be able to pay their respects until at least May, according to the Washington Post – which suggests that beyond health safety reasons, Beijing wants to limit the number of people standing around, criticizing the government response to the pandemic.

“No one in the family got to say goodbye to Grandpa or see his face one last time,” said Gao Yingwei, an IT worker in Wuhan whose grandfather, Gao Shixu, apparently succumbed to the novel coronavirus on Feb. 7. The 76-year-old died at home; funeral workers in hazmat suits came to collect his body, telling the family it would be cremated immediately.

To this day, we have no idea how his body was handled, where his ashes are or when we will be able to pick them up,” Gao said. “I don’t even know which funeral parlor those guys were from.” –Washington Post

Cover up

As we’ve noted over the last several weeks, the numbers in China aren’t adding up – as crematoriums have been processing thousands of bodies per day, according to several reports.

The Hankou Funeral Home, for example, told Caixin that it has been operating 19-hour days; enlisting male staff to carry bodies while reporting they’ve received 5,000 urns in two days.

Using photos posted online, social media sleuths have estimated that Wuhan funeral homes have returned 3,500 urns a day since March 23. That would imply a death toll in Wuhan of about 42,000 — or 16 times the official number. Another widely shared calculation from Radio Free Asia, based on Wuhan’s 84 furnaces running nonstop and each cremation taking an hour, put the death toll at 46,800. –Washington Post

“It can’t be right . . . because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died?” said one Wuhan resident identified only as Zhang, in a statement to RFA.

Also notable are the uncounted deaths – those who likely died of coronavirus but weren’t tested for the disease, such as 49-year-old Liu Cheng, who died February 12 of a “severe infection in both lungs.” He was not counted in the official coronavirus statistics, and was immediately cremated before his family could see him, according to the report.

Wuhan cemeteries have reported that they will sweep tombs during the memorial period, while some private funeral companies have offered to tend to graves for a fee while the families watch on live stream. And they have nobody to blame but the CCP for their early inaction and destruction of samples in what may have been able to be contained if they had acted sooner.

Mobile Morgue Trailers Being Deployed Near Major US Cities

Nation News Desk Published: 23 March 2020 https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/mobile-morgue-trailers-being-deployed-near-major-us-cities

In one of the most ominous developments in the U.S. Coronavirus outbreak, Mobile Morgue Trailers are being deployed outside of major US cities.

The photo …  show several of these trailers stashed on a farm in Joliet, IL, southwest of Chicago.

For those who still erroneously think “This is just the Flu” may we respectfully point out that never before have mobile morgue trailers been deployed for victims of flu;   This outbreak is NOT “just a Flu.”

And for those who are just flat out stupid, the reason these morgue trailers are being deployed is because officials believe the number of dead bodies coming from this outbreak will overwhelm local coroner’s offices.
