Scientist Challenges Chinese Coronavirus Data - Chris Martenson (Update #3)
Well, this is a report I really hoped never to write. But we all need to get our head on straight around this fast-spreading viral outbreak.

A pandemic is #3 on my personal “oh sh!t” list (a prolonged grid-down event is #2, and a global world war with nukes is, by far, #1)

Once a pandemic spreads to my neck of the woods, I’m not going to be doing anything in the company of strangers. No shopping, no going to restaurants, and especially no traveling in closed up metal tubes with recirculated air (i.e. planes and trains).

I won’t be alone in those behaviors. How many airline pilots, train conductors, trash collectors, and medical personnel have to call in “sick” to disrupt the entire system? Not that many.

So why is this Wuhan New Coronavirus (officially “2019-ncov”) a substantially more dangerous threat than the standard flu?

It really is too bad that Chinese culture is rife with food fetishes. Otherwise the normal street food fare is incredible.

And to add more to the mix there has been an outbreak of avian bird flu in China near the epicentre of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Image
This shouldn't be too alarming since there have been plenty of new stories about outbreaks of avian flu virus in recent weeks. At least since January 5, 2020.
I haven't been able to find any current interactive maps for the recent outbreak of bird flu virus but an image search in duckduckgo.com yields a few earlier results.

Evolution
The virus appears to have originated in bats. The virus itself has been isolated from a bat. This virus is closely related to the Tylonycteris bat coronavirus HKU4 and Pipistrellus bat coronavirus HKU5. Serological evidence shows that these viruses have infected camels for at least 20 years. The most recent common ancestor of several human strains has been dated to March 2012 (95% confidence interval December 2011 to June 2012).

The evidence available to date suggests that the viruses have been present in bats for some time and had spread to camels by the mid 1990s. The viruses appear to have spread from camels to humans in the early 2010s. The original bat host species and the time of initial infection in this species has yet to be determined.

Viruses are not something new, has existed since ancient times.

That is why eating bat meat is haram (forbidden) according to Islam. The Chinese like cannibals, they eat animals and insects without any restrictions. :yuk:

VIRUS UPDATE: Researchers Find More Evidence Deadly Disease Linked to BATS

Researchers in China and other nations are discovering more evidence the deadly Coronavirus that has killed nearly 400 people is related to the region’s bat population.

“Two new studies published Monday in the journal Nature reveal that genetic makeup for the new virus taken from several patients was closely related to a bat coronavirus,” reports the New York Post. “In one study, researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China analyzed samples from seven patients, six of whom were workers at a seafood market in Wuhan, where the new coronavirus was believed to have originated.”

“The genome sequences of the new strain — dubbed 2019-nCoV — were 96% identical to coronaviruses found in bats, suggesting that they were the likely hosts of the disease, researchers said,” adds the newspaper.

Global health experts continued their struggle to slow the spread of the Coronavirus in China and other countries Friday; confirming there has been a 3,000% increase in cases across the globe including two in Rome, Italy.

“The number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in China has skyrocketed to more than 9,000, surpassing the official count during the SARS epidemic. But the true number of infections may be even higher, as health workers struggle to catch up with the disease,” reports Bloomberg.

Disappearing act: Suspected coronavirus patient ESCAPED from quarantine in Salzburg

A 31-year-old female patient with a suspected coronavirus infection fled the isolation ward at Salzburg University Hospital overnight. A police manhunt was immediately launched to find the woman and return her to quarantine.

A nurse raised the alarm at approximately 3am on Wednesday morning when she discovered the patient’s bed was empty. After a large-scale police operation in the city, the woman was eventually found back in her apartment at 10:30am local time and returned to quarantine.

“The woman was admitted to the isolation ward of the university hospital for security reasons," a Salzburg city spokesperson said, adding that authorities were as yet unsure whether the patient was infected with the coronavirus.

There’s still no clear answer as to how she managed to escape from the hospital. Authorities are now faced with the unenviable task of producing a movement and contact assessment for anyone with whom the woman may have come into contact during her escape.

Cruise ship under quarantine in Hong Kong, tests for coronavirus conducted as 30 crew members have fever

Hong Kong health officials were scrambled to screen crew members aboard a large cruise ship arriving from Taiwan after dozens showed symptoms similar to the deadly coronavirus.

Hong Kong’s health department said that 30 crew members of the World Dream cruise liner, which carried 1,800 people, have symptoms of coronavirus, including fever. Everyone on board is currently being tested for the disease.

Taiwan’s Maritime and Port Bureau said no one was allowed ashore, after the vessel alerted the authorities that three of its previous passengers had been diagnosed with coronavirus. The passengers in question took a separate five-day cruise from China to Vietnam in late January and were hospitalized after returning to the Chinese city of Nansha.

More than 24,500 people worldwide have been infected with the previously-unknown type of coronavirus, after the outbreak in the city of Wuhan in China’s central Hubei Province in late December. A total of 492 people have died, with all but two deaths occurring in mainland China. One person died in Hong Kong, and one in the Philippines. So far, 911 patients have recovered.

California has been the much envisioned epicenter for a dystopian catastrophe for many years. In fact, it has been a primary influence and provided source material for script writers and science fiction novelists. The apocalyptic future was first glamorized in the 1980's but as the Democratic Party government slips into more incompetence and corruption the time is ripe for a pandemic to take hold on the streets. Right now the numbers are very small but there's a lot of homelessness in the major cities. Los Angeles has already been struggling with a typhus epidemic due to filthy conditions. How much more can the once "Golden State" handle this until there is total social collapse?
