    Many people are praying and seeking god's help. No problem with that, but before that seek medical help if you are sick. What is happening now in South Korea is because there are people who still think god will protect them from the virus.

    At a time 'Peace and security!' is being proclaimed [as seen in Israel/Palestine] the 'sudden destruction' 1Thessalonians 5: 2, 3 means 'violence, pestilence and famine.' Revelation 6:8 The 'pestilence' has consumed the news, with just under 80, 000 cases; and this plague of locusts will mean famine for a number of countries; but the violence appears with wars. Jeremiah 25 24-26 Revelation 11: 18 Of importance is the war appearing when Iran bombs Israel Daniel 11: 44, 45 Daniel 8: 20, 23-25. When does this occur? It comes when the Syrian war includes Turkey, as well as the 'kings of north near and far' Syria and Russia Jeremiah 25: 24-26. It also comes when "peace and security!" is being declared as the False prophecy of the False prophet, as seen in Revelation 19: 20. The time pinpointed for these things is today. The Great tribulation, with Christ's appearance, as seen in metaphor in Malachi 4: 2 is NOW IMMINENT.

    We are starting to see a trend with country's that are newly infected that they are having a higher death rate 2 in italy with only 80 infected 6 here with only 602 infected and so on in multiple countries so question is has this virus mutated and become more deadly or was China's death rate as people have said not been the truth.

    16 year old girl died. 41 yo man died in his apartment. These aren't 72+ year old males. We're going to learn a lot about the virus in the coming weeks and just how insanely contagious this level 4 pathogen is. Up until a week or 2 ago, everything was speculation… we were foolish to even take the numbers coming out of China seriously. And the WHO is useless… just a corrupt organization acting as cheerleaders for the regime. They are the reason why information isn't reaching more households… they are suppressing news. They even met with tech giants several weeks ago.

    I ’m in Chengdu, China. Do n’t just say how China lied.

Believe me or not, you will only get it if you have experienced it, in fact the Chinese have done a good job

    how are people dying so quickly? this is not expected.. it should take a few weeks.. initial symptoms are mild and then after around a week to 10 days it gets serious and then it's usually another week until they die
    this might suggest the virus has mutated, we might be seeing a more lethal strain in south korea and iran, this virus just gets worse and worse
