Coronavirus Cases Rise Globally – First U.S. Cases Detected…

The Coronavirus was first first diagnosed in China less than a month ago. On Thursday (U.S.) / Friday (Beijing) the Chinese government stated they have confirmed cases of 830 patients and the death toll has risen to 25.

The virus has infected more than a dozen people outside China around the world, mostly in Asia. However, the first U.S. case has been reported in Texas who traveled to the epicenter of the outbreak, Wuhan City, China.

A total of 18 million people are now under quarantine in China.

(Via CNBC) […] Local authorities in China have quarantined Wuhan and Huanggang, which have a combined population of 17 million. Including Wuhan where the virus was first identified, travel bans were in effect Thursday for at least eight cities.

[…] The previously unknown, flu-like coronavirus strain is believed to have emerged from an animal market in central Wuhan city.

A group of scientists said late Wednesday that they may have a breakthrough in discovering the original source of the virus, declaring that snakes, particularly the Chinese krait and the Chinese cobra, may be responsible for the outbreak. The scientist used samples of the virus from patients and determined the genetic code. (read more)

Interestingly, a China researcher on Twitter, Ben Tallmadge, often a great source of granular details for all things China, has been providing information about China developing biological weapons specifically in the city of Wuhan.

Citing a story from July 2019, Tallmadge draws attention to a level-4 biological lab in Canada that was infiltrated Chinese spy scientists and a biologic agent was removed.  What makes this aspect interesting is the location where the Chinese spies returned after they were caught; Wuhan City, the exact place where the Coronavirus started.

A year earlier, in July 2018, China inaugurated Wuhan biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) lab in the city.  It is the only level-four biological research facility in the country.  The Wuhan lab was built precisely to look into dangerous pathogens like the novel Coronavirus; which again is reported to have originated from Wuhan City.  This just doesn’t seem like a coincidence.

In July 2019, there was a considerable protest in Wuhan City because the Chinese government was building a massive incinerator in the event a biologic element escaped the facility.  Again, this doesn’t seem like a coincidence.

 

What makes this additionally alarming is that the Chinese government generally has a history of playing-down the level of any internal threat within their society.

The scale of open activity by the Chinese government reflects a genuine public concern considerably beyond what they are normally willing to admit.

You can read more details and assembled media reports [HERE] in an ongoing thread that Tallmadge is compiling.

“Make no mistake, this is an emergency in China. But it has not yet become a global health emergency. It may yet become one,” Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters on a conference call following a second emergency meeting on the disease on Thursday. The emergency committee members were “very divided,” a WHO official said, coming to a split vote for a second time. While the disease is spreading through human-to-human contact in China, Tedros said it’s not yet spreading in other areas of the world where people have flown to after visiting China.

The virus causes severe illness in about a quarter of the people who become infected, he said, killing people who generally have other underlying health conditions.

WHO is not recommending any broader restrictions on travel or trade at this time. Physicians recommended basic hygiene, including washing hands with soap and water and avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth. (link)

    This is also tangentially related to the trade deal with China. Remember that China had to buy agricultural from the US, especially pork because there was massive swine flu epidemic that decimated their pork stocks. Something is definitely afoot in China related to their biological weapon’s program. This is truly an evil regime that has very bad things in store for their people and the world.

    A site famous for it’s suspicion of China and how it’s rulers play the game seems to have overlooked that this virus is a God send to the Chinese “Panda”.
    The background is China is reeling from Trumps tariffs, Hong Kong demonstrations that were spreading, etc. Regardless of how started, what better way to lock down the Chinese nation and dissidents than a Wu-Wu Virus “pandemic”. No one, much, seems to believe Chinese news outlets. Most Left wing media hype “likely under reporting” while blathering about “global economic turn down exacerbated by (drum roll) Trump!
    What we’ll likely see over the next few weeks is what is the real death rate of infected cases outside China. Likely it’s even less than the 1968 H3N2 virus pandemic of 0.5% of infected cases (most elderly and the very young). I.E. Wu-Wu will fit into all the other viruses that emerge from China every year, after year, after year.
    But, never let a virus go to waste.

      The Coronavirus is similar. I am reading cows, bats, and other animals have this virus. Then, the pigs get it. Next step, humans get it. The open air live animal market in Wuhan is being blamed for this where millions of people go to trade for food including the pigs.

  32. Confirmed case in Chitagco
    AND possibly..
    North Carolina ..

    HOT Off the Press!

    Possible case of coronavirus in North Carolina..
    The person recently traveled to China and passed through Wuhan City, where the outbreak originated..

    This person arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Thursday.

    The patient presented with mild respiratory symptoms and is currently in good condition and being cared for in isolation at Duke University Hospital.

    The Division of Public Health is arranging testing for the novel coronavirus at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A diagnosis cannot be confirmed at this time. DHHS will update the public as soon as the results from the CDC are available.

    The person did not have close contact with anyone after disembarking at the airport in North Carolina and wore a mask the entire time while at the airport.
    (I call BULLSHIT!)

    The person was transported directly to the hospital from RDU for assessment and care using appropriate infection prevention measures.

    So (they) took the person straight too Duke University? WUT!

    Quote:
    If infection with the 2019 coronavirus is confirmed, DPH will work closely with the CDC and local partners to reach out to people who came in close contact with the person on the airline flights

    Notice the word “Flights”..AND “came in close contact with”..
    Hu-Huh..

    Quote:
    DPH is working closely with the CDC, local public health partners and health care providers to evaluate this case and prepare for any future potential cases in North Carolina.

    News Article is Downplaying the situation, As NOT to cause PANIC!..
    There are no flights out of RDU to/from China, they came through either ATL, JFK, or DTW. If they walked through Atlanta, it is all over the US already.
