SC.

Spring has already started here and there's been pollen everywhere for 2 weeks, so I'm hoping it's just allergies messing with me. But the scary part is, I don't know.

South Korea - 8086 (+217)
Iran - 12729 (+2654)
Italy - 17660 (+2547)

I mean, are more people being infected, or are we just testing more people?

It's undeniably spreading, IMO. How many test kits can there possibly be in storage for a virus that just became known a few months ago?

Interesting infograph here. Shows how once everyone in China miraculously recovered, and the virus started taking off in the rest of the world, the recovery rates have started to decline..



Something fishy about China's stats...

I almost think their "recovered" numbers are the #'s of people they incinerated that day.

Yes, the virus is spreading, but so is testing. America has barely tested anyone. The second we start testing, our numbers will skyrocket. But that won't mean the virus is spreading. It just means the testing is spreading.

However you wanna look at it...

Still doesn't answer where these test kits would be coming from. Any info on who's manufacturing them? And how they've managed to manufacture hundreds of thousands of test kits in 3 months?

EDIT: just curious - not necessarily saying you're wrong. I've been wondering where the hell these test kits are coming from since they started testing in December. Virus takes off.. and there's immediately a mass supply of test kits for the new pathogen?

EDIT 2: the abundance of test kits immediately available after covid started taking off sort of lends some credence to upwards' theory. Were they making test kits before covid became active?

Nothing is going to stop this except a vaccine. The virus may hibernate during the spring and summer just like the Spanish flu did, but it will come back in the winter and cause damage unseen before.


If they are serious about doing something, they should arrest Bill Gates, interrogate him and then go from there, but reaching the speed of light is more realistic for sure.

The Italian government either wanted it to take off there, or they are so naive with their progressive policies that they didn't realize hugging infected Chinese people would be a bad idea.

Italian residents hug Chinese people to encourage them in coronavirus fight

We don't know how to vaccinate against coronaviruses...

It would literally be a miracle of modern medicine if they manage to do it now.

Very valid point.

You think they waited to release it until they had the miracle cure, so they could come to the rescue and profit massively? While also increasing their prominence on the world stage?

I guess it's possible something like that took place.

The problem is we are left with very little data to be able to pinpoint who exactly is behind the virus, but there is no doubt in my mind it's man-made.


Keep in mind that Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have talked about a "universal" flu vaccine that is still 10 years away, so even if COVID-19 is not the master one it could be another drill in preparation for something bigger down the line. They ran the numbers and must have drooled when they realized how much money could be siphoned off the world's gdp into their pockets.


Whoever developed the virus must have developed a vaccine for it and knew that it would take others years to figure it out, this would be the insurance policy that only they will profit from worldwide governmental contracts when the world gets on its knees begging for a vaccine.


This virus has multiple uses as far as current data is concerned, it could be used to assassinate someone, to bring down entire economies and cash in on hysterical stock market selloffs and lastly to make hundreds of billions of dollars when they decide to end the crisis with a vaccine.



COVID-19 could indeed be the magical wand of the 21st century

830 thousand masks destined for the coronavirus emergency blocked in Germany

The owner Mortarotti: "We no longer know where they are".



March 12, 2020 at 14:16













The telephone of the Api Lecco trade association has been ringing continuously since this morning: the companies, which according to DCPM of 11 March 2020 can continue to work ensuring the safety of their employees, ask where to find masks, but they are no longer found. “The mask emergency could be resolved thanks to one of our associated companies, the Dispotech srl of Gordona (Sondrio), which we have been helping for days to unlock a paradoxical situation - explains Api Lecco co-director Marco Piazza-. Dispotech srl bought 830 thousand surgical masks from China and were blocked in Germany initially by the German government ".




The facts

Let's reconstruct the facts: Dispotech srl buys 830 thousand surgical masks from China, they are imported into Germany by a German importer. On March 4, 2020, the German Ministry of Economy issued an order prohibiting the export of a series of medical devices that can be used in an emergency by CoViD-19 and thus blocks the 830 thousand masks of Dispotech srl. Thanks to the timely intervention of Api Lecco and national Confapi, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Embassy, ​​the situation is unlocked: "We managed to make it clear that it is a transit, not an import, so they have given the green light to bring the masks to Italy, but at the moment nobody finds them anymore, they are in Germany but nobody knows where ”, concludes Piazza.


Disappear

Monica Mortarotti is the owner of Dispotech srl, a company that employs about 80 people: "We are doing the impossible to bring these masks to Italy, but we have to find where they are now in Germany, we cannot understand if they are in the warehouse of our German importer. There are 830 thousand, one part we want to donate to the Civil Protection, the remainder goes to all hospital facilities that we supply through our distributors. We have three boxes of masks here for our internal use: people come to beg us and we give them to them, we are experiencing dramatic days ”.

I bet you there are many who just keep quiet,hoping it will go away or it is not corona virus or just dont want anyone to send them to hospital ,they are like roach motel you can check in but cant check out,or one becomes like a leper .
What??? NO. If your temps were high, you were possibly sick. Don't even try to claim that anyone with a fever was considered positive. That's just absurd.

I've learned from elsewhere on the internet that "test kits" are actually "SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Qualitative PCR" procedures being done in labs.

Quote:
UW SARS-CoV-2 assay is a one-step Real-Time RT-PCR assay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal swabs. Results are for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 RNA.
The UW SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR assay targets two distinct regions within the N gene of SARS-CoV-2 (the causative agent for COVID-19).
Amplification of both targets results in a presumptive positive test result, while amplification of one of two targets results in an inconclusive result, and amplification of neither target results a negative result.
That clears up the confusion I had about the immediate availability of seemingly millions of test kits. The test kit is just a mouth swab that has to be analyzed by a lab. I figured it was more like a pregnancy test, where it either shows one line or two lines after a few minutes.

This also explains why countries are limiting the number of people being tested. It's a massive drain on lab resources if each swab has to be analyzed one at a time by a technician.

The CDC can only process a maximum of 200 test a day! No wonder numbers of deaths and confirmed cases do not match morgue and funeral home records. How can there be confirmed cases if they can’t test them?
