    The misinformation coming from China is the real problem!

    Bulshit most of the people online are very responsible about this issue. People do not trust the Chinese government or several other governments to tell the truth

    Yes Fake news from the media who keeps downplaying it.

  • Reply Thomas Johnson February 22, 2020 at 2:02 am

    The flu kills 0.1 and this kills at least 2.4, which means almost 10 million dead just in the United states.

  • Reply Thomas Johnson February 22, 2020 at 2:03 am

    This kills 18% of people over 70 years old. This is serious.

  • Reply Thomas Johnson February 22, 2020 at 2:09 am

    They forget to mention that the virus leaves almost 20% in serious to critical condition with lung damage. The news is downplaying it.

    Don't blame social media. If you are not communicating your findings people will fill in the information.

    isnt it weird how contagious this virus is? Its crazy contagious and has a nice convenient incubation period of almost a month! And it is lethal, trust me it will leave you with lung damage almost 25 percent of the time. I truly think man has created this virus for some kind of agenda.

  • Reply Walter Engler February 22, 2020 at 5:07 am

    Love how the media is fanning the flames of fear for their own benefits. How about some facts.

    Fact – WHO is now using language to indicate this is moving into a possible pandemic phase (where it becomes rampant in multiple countries and continents at the same time)
    Fact – WHO is seeing a surge in cases where the source cannot be tracked back to China
    Fact – with almost 80,000 cases+ now, Contact Tracing (trying to track each infection back to a Source) becomes more and more difficult and almost impossible to achieve (which means it can't be contained).

    Now this sounds bad. But is it? You see to be surging like this there is a strong possibility the virus impacts are being overblown (by the media especially).

    A surge like this implies the virus is more present in the general population and spreading more than originally thought. WHO is dependent on contact tracing based on people going in to doctors and hospitals and being diagnosed with the Coronavirus. BUT .. if the only ones being reported are those that need hospitalization (or those related to that person / contact), it may be many more cases are being ignored as they look just like .. a standard flu. There have been many flu scares where once the data is analyzed later the flu is much less severe than thought. The normal flu may have a 0.2% fatality rate because people with prior weaknesses or illnesses are susceptible. With this virus the rate is 2-3% .. but that's for only those hospitalized or diagnosed (through contact with a hospitalized or other diagnosed person). And even then they keep saying those who passed were already sick or had a prior condition or were old or (on and on). If people are getting what they think of as a bad cold or weak flu (but it's actually the virus) and they treat it themselves and get better .. then with a wider population being sick the overall fatality rate starts dropping. It may be the fatality rate for this virus is around 0.5% to 1% or just a bit stronger than a normal flu.

    WHO has to react like this is deadly based on the information they have. But there IS NO TEST the average doctor can do to see if a person has this virus, period. So it is possible more and more are slipping under the radar is it has less impact than the deadly cases.

    I personally hope this is the case. I would hate to see a lot of people suffer with this or have loved ones pass (even if they are already ill). Because if the real reason for the surge is containment efforts have failed and all we can do is hold onto our ankles and get ready for the ride .. well a pandemic would likely effect around 1/3 to 1/2 of all people eventually. And a 2% fatality rate would mean about 20-30 Million dead over a period of time as the flu spreads round and round the globe. Countries with huge medical systems like the US may see lower rates (but still around 500,000 dead). Other nations with worse medical systems or socialized systems which try to spread out the care would see higher as well as they can't handle the potential loads or lack needed support items. Of course that assumes nothing comes along to help combat it and reduce the impact

    It's not very deadly, that's why china shut down its economy and has hundreds of millions in forced quarantine. Just the flu guys nothing to see here.

    Israel engineered the virus. As infections spread across the world there will be one country with suspiciously few cases.

    They don't like people getting the truth from other sources rather than their own controlled media outlets!

    All over the U.S. RIGHT NOW. Has been here for at least a month, blaming deaths on the FLU and Pneumonia. 1 in 7 will die which means someone in your family. Just ask your doctor to test you for Coronavirus and they will laugh at you. Prepare now, you cannot trust the government, MEDIA, or any medical advice. Economic crash is coming, get your money out of the bank now.

    In the Diamond Princess, within just 2 weeks there were 634 infected out of 3,700 which is about 17% infection rate.
    Is it safe to think that there are about 1,700,000 infected out of 10,000,000 population in Wuhan alone?
