34,000+ cases and over 700 deaths.

That’s 5,000 cases and over 100 more deaths since I posted yesterday. 

Again, the vast majority of this is contained in China. From what I’ve read, the death of the Chinese doctor has really angered people there, but the government is still trying to hush people up. Officials there do not care.

Is it true that most of the people who have died are older men?

Combine the two possibilities: 1). this as a bio-weapon and 2). targeted at specific population…. one can easily see the potential of solving problems: 1). Too many men and 2). Urban population becoming educated and possibly seeing beyond the communist government *mind-games*.

If this isn’t a weapon…. the circumstances and timing certainly suggest extreme carelessness in food preparation and/or general hygiene.

There seems to be suspicion about the timing of Phase 1 of the U.S.-China trade deal, and the outbreak of the coronavirus.

I’ve heard an even more simpler theory and conspiracy theory: The government in that country is trying to ‘lessen the population’. When you have 1.3 Billion people…

I guess the one-child policy didn’t control the population well enough? hmmm_gif

There are other claims that updates are fake news.

Who knows if anything we’re hearing about this is true?

This doctor tried to sound the alarm even as he was getting sick. 

 

 

Update:  He has now died.

I feel so sorry for him. Despite everything he did, the Gov did nothing but accused him of exposing fake news.

It is sad. But I wonder–if this had happened in the United States, or Germany, or India–would the government in any of these countries have acted any different?

I’m not sure the veracity of this source, but…

“Given the 15% mortality rate that has now been triple-confirmed, those numbers will, within a few weeks, translate into 7,500 new deaths per day, completely overwhelming China’s crematoriums, hospitals, transport vans, medical personnel and entire health care infrastructure. Essentially, the streets will be littered with dead bodies, and any realistic effort to process those bodies will either require bulldozing mass graves or transporting those bodies to other provinces for cremation…

Bodies piling up, Hubei Province funeral
