WHO: Coronavirus is More Deadly Than Originally Thought

The World Health Organization has announced that the death rate for those who contract the coronavirus is higher than originally thought.  Even though getting the coronavirus only comes with a 3.4% mortality rate, the virus’ rapid spread could bump that number even higher.

Originally, WHO assumed the death rate from those who get infected with the COVID-19 virus, was only 2%.  That has been revised upwards to 3.4%. “Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press briefing at the agency’s headquarters in Geneva.  In comparison, the seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected, he said.

Again, it’s not like this is a huge jump considering the number of people who have been infected, yet as this virus lingers, it has the unintended consequence of killing more than previously thought.

Deadly Plague Could MUTATE And Become Untreatable As It Spreads Globally

Additionally, a Harvard scientist claimed that the coronavirus could infect 70% of the population. That means 5.3 billion people could catch it and if the mortality rate is now 3.4%, almost 180 million people globally could die. That’s more than Joe Biden claims were killed by guns in the U.S. since 2007.

All joking aside, this could end up being a pretty serious debacle. Prepping supplies are selling out, face masks that will actually help are selling out, and people are panicking over the stock market.  Unless you’ve prepared in advance, you are also likely feeling some anxiety.

The Grim Reality About Pandemics They Don’t Want You To Know: “No Country is Prepared”

World “authorities” admit they don’t know much about this virus, yet are hopeful it can be contained. Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO’s health emergencies program, said Monday that the coronavirus isn’t transmitting the same exact way as the flu and health officials have been given a “glimmer, a chink of light” that the virus could be contained.

“Here we have a disease for which we have no vaccine, no treatment, we don’t fully understand transmission, we don’t fully understand case mortality, but what we have been genuinely heartened by is that unlike influenza, where countries have fought back, where they’ve put in place strong measures, we’ve remarkably seen that the virus is suppressed,” Ryan said, according to CNBC

Odds of Coronavirus Becoming a Pandemic Jump 40% As The Virus Wipes $5 Trillion From Markets

The odds of the coronavirus outbreak becoming a pandemic have jumped 40% recently. As nations struggle to contain this virus, it’s taking its toll on the markets too, wiping out $5 trillion.

Cases of the new coronavirus disease are rising quickly outside China, and the odds of the outbreak turning into a pandemic have now doubled. The odds are up from 20% to 40%, according to a report from Moody’s Analytics. “Our previous assumption that the virus will be contained in China proved optimistic, and the odds of a pandemic are rising,” said the firm according to CNBC. 

If this outbreak becomes the pandemic many are suspecting it will, the markets will take a further beating. Moody’s says that a global and U.S. recession is certain should the outbreak be labeled a pandemic.

Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?

“The economy was already fragile before the outbreak and vulnerable to anything that did not stick to script. COVID-19 is way off script,” the economists said. “COVID-19 came out of nowhere. It may be what economists call a black swan – a rare and inherently unforeseeable event with severe consequences,” they added.

 Coronavirus panic sent world share markets crashing again on Friday, compounding their worst week since the 2008 global financial crisis and bringing the wipeout in value terms to $5 trillion.

The rout showed no signs of slowing as Europe’s main markets slumped 2-3 percent early on and the ongoing dive for safety sent yields on U.S. government bonds, seen as probably the securest asset in the world, to fresh record lows.

Your savings account is at an even bigger risk now too. Analysts are now wagering that the Federal Reserve will cut U.S. interest rates as soon as next month and other major central banks will follow to try and nurse economies through the troubles and stave off a global recession.

CDC Prepares For The “LIKELY” Spread of Coronavirus, And Pandemic

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is finally warning the United States citizenry that the coronavirus will “likely” spread and will be labeled a pandemic. This news comes as South Korea and Iran deal with the outbreak and the World Health Organization cautions that “the window of opportunity is narrowing” for containing the outbreak worldwide.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters Friday that U.S. health officials have begun preparing for the coronavirus to become a pandemic. “We’re not seeing community spread here in the United States, yet, but it’s very possible, even likely, that it may eventually happen,” she said. “Our goal continues to be slowing the introduction of the virus into the U.S. This buys us more time to prepare communities for more cases and possibly sustained spread.”

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME (QUARANTINE) FOR A PANDEMIC

Preparations on the individual level have already begun for some, and many are double-checking their supplies just in case. Wearing a snug-fitting face mask, improving handwashing techniques, and boosting your immune system are just a few suggestions to prevent contraction and transmission of this virus.

Messonnier said that  CDC is working with state and local health departments “to ready our public health workforce to respond to local cases.” These measures include collaboration with supply chain partners, hospitals, pharmacies, and manufacturers to determine what medical supplies are needed.

At the time of this writing, there have been 79,737 cases (perhaps more; China may not be accurately reporting) and 2,627 deaths.

The director-general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who says he’s alarmed by the recent spread of the coronavirus from Iran, warned Friday that while the chance to contain the virus globally still exists, “the window of opportunity is narrowing.”

“We still have a chance to contain it, but we have to prepare for other eventualities,” said Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “This could go in many directions, it could be even messy. It is in our hands now … we can reverse or avert a serious crisis. If we don’t, if we squander this opportunity, then there could be a serious problem on our hands.”

biological Chinese government containment Coronavirus COVID-19 Headline News Intelwars military weapons program possible origins Scientists United States virology lab Weapon Wuhan

Chinese Scientists Conclude “Killer Coronavirus Probably Originated From a Laboratory in Wuhan”

This article was originally published by J.D. Heyes at Natural News. 

For weeks there has been speculation that because of growing evidence it has rapidly spread beyond the Chinese government’s ability to contain it, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was actually part of a military weapons program.

Now, there appears to be some confirmation that the virus, while perhaps not a ‘weapon,’ per se, was indeed manufactured, and this revelation comes on the heels of a White House request to ask scientists to probe the origin of the disease.

AS ABC News reported earlier this month, the Trump administration directed U.S. scientists and medical researchers to find out more about where the virus actually came from as rumors spread over the Internet that it could be the result of some nefarious Chinese plan.

The network reported: 

The director of the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in a letter to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, requested that scientific experts “rapidly” look into the origins of the virus in order to address both the current spread and “to inform future outbreak preparation and better understand animal/human and environmental transmission aspects of coronaviruses.”

While there are no indications the White House believed the reports of a weaponized virus, clearly there was enough concern among officials to find out if China — and, by default, the rest of the world — was dealing with something other than a hypersonic version of the ‘flu.’

Shortly thereafter, Sen. Tom Cotton, (R-Ark.), a former Army infantry officer and combat veteran, also suggested that “maybe the coronavirus was manmade.”

According to a paper by a pair of Chinese scientists — who, according to Harvard To The Big House — have since deleted their online profiles, it appears as though the virus may indeed have been ‘manufactured.’

According to a pre-print of the research paper published by Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao titled, “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus,” “In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus. In addition to origins of natural recombination and intermediate host, the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

A smoking gun conclusion if there ever was one.

Ground Zero for the outbreak near China’s only top-level virology lab

The report and its conclusions, according to Harvard To The Big House, “is the product of a collaboration between a retired professional scientist” with more than three decades’ worth of experience in genome sequencing and analysis, who also helped design “several…bioinformatic software tools,” as well as a former NSA counterterrorism analyst. 

The researchers attempt to determine if the Wuhan coronavirus is simply the result of a naturally emergent mutation (from an animal to humans) “against the possibility that it may be a bioengineered strain meant for defensive immunotherapy protocols that was released into the public,” most probably by mistake or accident. That’s possible, the researchers note, because “China’s rate of occupational accidents is about ten-times higher than America’s, and some twenty-times more than Europe’s,” the only other regions on the planet where there are high-level virology laboratories.

Initially, it was reported that the current strain may have mutated to humans from bats, but as the researchers noted, the outbreak began in late December when most of the Wuhan region’s bat species are in hibernation. 

Also, the Chinese horseshoe bat’s habitat is massive — covering a region filled with scores of cities and hundreds of millions of people. And yet, ground zero for the outbreak happened to be close to the only BSL-4 virology lab in China, which is located in Wuhan City, home to 11 million people. 

Notably, the lab “was staffed with at least two Chinese scientists – Zhengli Shi and Xing-Yi Ge – both virologists who had previously worked at an American lab which already bio-engineered an incredibly virulent strain of bat coronavirus,” Harvard To The Big House noted.

In short, Wuhan coronavirus may not be a bioweapon but it certainly appears not to have simply occurred naturally.

Top Health Official Warning: Coronavirus Is Nearing PANDEMIC Levels

A top health official is warning that the severity of the coronavirus is being understated and that it’s on the verge of hitting pandemic levels.  This news comes as 40 Americans on a cruise ship test positive for the virus.

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared on CBS News on Sunday to update viewers on the spread of the coronavirus. Fauci said that the disease did not meet the technical definition of a “pandemic” yet, but it is nearing that eventuality as it’s proven difficult to contain.  “Technically speaking, the WHO [World Health Organization] wouldn’t be calling this a global pandemic. But it certainly is on the verge of that happening reasonably soon unless containment is more successful than it is right now,” he said.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME (QUARANTINE) FOR A PANDEMIC

Fauci said that more than 500 cases of the infection have popped up over two dozen countries. Some of the cases have reached the second and third stages of transmission. The United States had previously confirmed 15 cases of the illness, but Fauci noted that another 40 Americans aboard the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship have tested positive for the virus.

The coronavirus outbreak began in the city of Wuhan, China, last month. Over 1,600 patients in China have died from the disease while just four patients outside mainland China have died. Several airlines and countries have placed temporary bans on flights to China to limit the spread of the virus.

Chinese officials report that well over 60,000 people in China have been infected. The Chinese government, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, is scrambling to recover from the public relations crisis the outbreak of the virus has caused. –Wasington Examiner

“Nothing short of the most comprehensive, rigorous, and thorough measures have been taken,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at an international security conference on Sunday. “China’s speed, scale, and efficiency all reflect the advantage of China’s system.”

Fauci is not the only health official claiming that this could very well reach pandemic levels soon:

Coronavirus Found to Have up to 24-Day Incubation Period; CDC Releasing Wuhan Evacuees in Texas, Nebraska, and California After Just 14 days

This article was originally published by Mike Adams at Natural News. 

The CDC has already flown hundreds of American evacuees from Wuhan, China to various cities across the United States, including San Antonio, Texas, and Omaha, Nebraska. There, evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days, after which they will be released to return to their homes.

This 14-day quarantine is based on an assumption that this nCoV coronavirus has a maximum 14-day incubation period. But what if that assumption was wrong?

What if some patients actually experienced a 24-day incubation period before showing symptoms?

If that were the case, the CDC would be releasing people into the population 10 days too early, effectively contributing to the outbreak.

Guess what? That’s exactly what’s happening, according to a science paper published on the MedRxIV website, backed by the British Medical Journal and Yale. The study, entitled, “Clinical characteristics of 2019 novel coronavirus infection in China,” is noted as a “preprint” which “has not been peer-reviewed,” but the study notes that incubation periods for the coronavirus vary from zero days to 24 days.

The study was based on 1,099 patients with lab-confirmed 2019-nCoV, gathered from 552 hospitals in 31 provinces, through January 29, 2020, explains the abstract. We’ve posted a backup copy of the original PDF here, just in case MedRxIV removes it or stealth edits the paper.

The median incubation period was noted as 3.0 days. The conclusion of the paper is not good news for the world:

The 2019-nCoV epidemic spreads rapidly by human-to-human transmission. Normal radiologic findings are present among some patients with 2019-nCoV infection. The disease severity (including oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, blood leukocyte/lymphocyte count and chest X-ray/CT manifestations) predicts poor clinical outcomes.

Notably, only 1.18% of the patients studied by the researchers had any direct contact with wildlife. Almost everyone in the study caught the virus from other people, underscoring the human-to-human transmission that’s exploding across China.

If the incubation period lasts up to 24 days, then governments all over the world are releasing infected patients after insufficient quarantine

Although we feel great remorse for any human being trapped in medical quarantine, the entire purpose of the quarantine is to isolate infected people for the full duration of viral incubation. If quarantines do not cover the full range of expected incubation durations, then they will inevitably release some number of infected people into the general population.

Although a 14-day quarantine will no doubt cover the vast majority of possible carriers, if even 1% of patients demonstrate incubation periods lasting significantly longer than 14 days, that’s still enough to spark an outbreak in the general population.

This is on top of the fact that the CDC just admitted earlier today they made a mistake in the lab and “accidentally” released a person from a quarantine center in California long before the 14-day quarantine requirement. As Zero Hedge reports:

Dr. Anne Schuchat, a top official at the CDC, told reporters in Washington, admitted that “it turns out there was probably a mix-up and the original test wasn’t negative.”

First off, what’s with the doublespeak? Why not just say the first test was positive? Instead, they have to say, “was not negative” which is a double negative. So the pandemic language police are alive and well at the CDC, it seems, where even mentioning the word “positive” is now forbidden. And we’re supposed to trust these people to be transparent?

Secondly, does anybody really believe this release of a possibly infected person was an accident? By all accounts, it seems like the CDC is trying as hard as it can to distribute potentially infected people all across the country, literally chartering commercial jets to land American evacuees from Wuhan in cities like Omaha and San Antonio. So the CDC is either lying or just flat-out incompetent. Perhaps both. But it makes no sense to distribute returning evacuees across several facilities in several states (and then release them after just 14 days instead of 24 days).

If you don’t believe the U.S. government is preparing for a pandemic, ask why the U.S. military is preparing 11 quarantine centers across the United States:

JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI (HNL)
Great Lakes Training Center Navy Base, IL (ORD)
Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, TX (DFW)
March ARB, CA (LAX)
Travis AFB, CA (SFO)
Dobbins ARB, GA (ATL)
Fort Hamilton, NY (JFK)
Naval Base Kitsap, WA (SEA)
Joint Base Anacostia, DC (IAD)
Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ (EWR)
Fort Custer Training Center (DTW)

As Michael Snyder writes:

If this coronavirus outbreak is not a serious threat, then why is the U.S. government preparing to quarantine victims all over America? As you will see below, 11 U.S. military bases located close to major airports are being converted into “quarantine centers” for potential patients. When I first learned about this, I was greatly alarmed, because we have all seen what is going on in China right now. People are literally being physically dragged out of their homes and are being forcibly relocated to “mass quarantine camps” with hordes of other very sick people. Sadly, many of them will never come out of those camps alive. If this virus starts spreading like wildfire here in the United States, is it possible that something similar could start happening here?

The answer, of course, is yes.

Follow the narrative to get to the real truth on all this:

China containment Coronavirus death toll Epidemic epidemiologist forced into camps Gabriel Leung Headline News Hong Kong infection rate Intelwars public health WHO World Health Organization

Disease Expert Warns: The “Coronavirus Could Infect 60% of the Population”

An infectious disease expert is warning that if the coronavirus continues to spread at the rate which it is, it could infect 60% of the population.  Because of this, a public health epidemiologist says other countries should consider adopting China-style containment measures.

The coronavirus epidemic could spread to about two-thirds of the world’s population if it cannot be controlled, according to Hong Kong’s leading public health epidemiologist. His warning comes after the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said recent cases of coronavirus patients who had never visited China could be the “tip of the iceberg,” according to a report by The Guardian.

China Is Literally Dragging People Out Of Their Homes And Sending Them To “Mass Quarantine Camps”

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME (QUARANTINE) FOR A PANDEMIC

Professor Gabriel Leung, the chair of public health medicine at Hong Kong University, said the overriding question was to figure out the size and shape of the iceberg. Most experts thought that each person infected would go on to transmit the virus to about 2.5 other people. That gave an “attack rate” of 60-80%.

“Sixty percent of the world’s population is an awfully big number,” Leung told the Guardian in London, en route to an expert meeting at the WHO in Geneva on Tuesday. –The Guardian

Even if the general fatality rate is as low as 1%, which Leung thinks is possible once milder cases are taken into account, the death toll would be massive.  And this is all on the assumption that China is accurately reporting the number of cases and deaths. There has been some speculation that based on the crematoriums running all day every day, that the numbers infected and dying are being dramatically understated. 

The Coronavirus Outbreak Shows “No Signs Of Slowing” As Crematoriums Burn Bodies 24 Hours A Day

Leung also suggests that if China’s lockdown and forcing people into quarantine camps has worked, those violent policies should be rolled out worldwide. But if they hasn’t worked, there is another unpalatable truth to face: that the coronavirus might not be possible to contain. Then the world will have to switch tracks: instead of trying to contain the virus, it will have to work to mitigate its effects.
