The deadly pneumonia-like illness that has sickened hundreds and killed nine in and near Wuhan, China has now shown up in the United States. Despite precautions and best efforts from officials, the virus is spreading and some fear a global pandemic could be upon us.
China’s neighbors have been ratcheting up screening efforts in order to prevent a global pandemic, but the virus has now been detected in India, Russia, and the U.S. According to a report by RT, a Snohomish County, Washington man has become the first officially confirmed novel coronavirus case in the US. Local officials have not named the man, who is said to be very sick. He was hospitalized with pneumonia last week after returning from the Wuhan region, where the illness has already claimed nine lives, according to Chinese authorities.
Over 440 cases had been confirmed by Wednesday in China, cropping up in cities including Beijing, Shenzhen and Shanghai; cases have also been reported in Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and – now – the US. Infectious disease experts from Imperial College London estimated the disease toll to be much higher, however, suggesting on Saturday that at least 1,723 people might be infected. –RT
This deadly virus spreads from person to person, although health officials still aren’t sure how just yet. The coronavirus causes pneumonia-like symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Health officials do believe it initially jumped from animals at the Wuhan market to humans. The World Health Organization is due to weigh in on Wednesday on whether the outbreak will be declared an international public health emergency.
Preparations for a pandemic are simple, and mostly include ensuring you’ve stocked up on enough emergency supplies to care for and quarantine a sick family member. You should also consider taking precautions to not get sick. Albeit small, there is always a chance that this virus could cause the next global pandemic and it’s never too soon to make preparations for that outcome, no matter how unlikely.
Pandemics: The Country Is NOT Prepared, But You Can Be!
Chinese incursion into the Dark Continent apparently went from Ebola…
to Marburg-like, hemorrhagic pig Ebola…
to air-born Wuhan coronavirus…
So, hurry up and get injected with whatever you are told.
This could get very very serious.
It appears that it has and probably will continue to mutate.
The horse is out of the barn and humanity can not stop its spread
There is no vaccine or treatment – Therefore it it mutates into a more lethal stain with a high mortality – GOD help us all
What the hell are they selling at those live markets?
This History Channel docudrama gives a glimpse of life after a pandemic wipes out a large part of the population. It is 90 minutes long, and gives tips for survival from experts during breaks in the bad acting.
They also told us that working conditions improved after the Black Death.
I think that disaster relief and overstock rots in warehouses. So, there is something to be said about gross mismanagement causing scarcity, artificially. The social crisis, which they were actually trying to control, was over productivity.
Get some Tamiflu quickly just to have in your preps.
Tamiflu’s natural counterpart was supposed to be the common street tree and N. American native plant, Liquidambar.
The clean, convenient, standardized, pharmaceutical answer caused Japanese kids to jump out of windows.
The natural version smells lightly of cinnamon and cloves, when split open and was used medicinally, since times immemorial.
Our banned rootbeer plant is also used medicinally, as well as Elderberry flowers steeped in a syrup of the berries…
Not cola, but bitter cola is alleged to stop the progression of Ebola.
Two comments to make about this subject.
First comment is that this a perfect illustration of the absolute insanity (and absolute treason) of political leaders who support open borders and lax immigration policies.
Second comment – is where my deeply ingrained sense of cynicism and vehement distrust of the US Government kicks in. It is no secret to anyone with a brain bigger than a golf ball and who has been paying attention – that elements within the elitist political circles and their financial contributors are pathologically obsessed with snookering Americans into obediently agreeing to roll up their sleeves and let ZOG stick a needle into their arms and inject them with the latest ‘vaccine’ that contains all kinds of mysterious chemicals and agents that we are not supposed to question or express our suspicions about, or wonder if there is some hidden and sinister agenda behind this relentless propaganda campaign to go ‘get your free flu shot’?
Thus, when a government has repeatedly earned the distrust of the citizens it presides over – and when we see articles in the news that report the catastrophic decline of fertility (lower sperm counts, decreases in male testosterone levels, etc.) and all of these news stories always claim that the ‘experts’ are standing around, scratching their heads, and nobody has any clue as to why all these things are happening – it leads me to suspect that these ‘vaccines’ are more than likely being used to deliberately lower fertility rates and this is being done as part of a sinister agenda to wipe out White European people – because, after all, these fertility decreases are only happening inside White Western nations.
Last time I checked, there sure weren’t any decline in fertility issues plaguing Africa or any other non-white, third world nation.
We are expected to believe that this is only a coincidence?

A top China Analyst reported that the real numbers in Wuhan are at least triple of what they are admitting. Wuhan and Three other cities have been quarantined as of this morning. Wuhan has a population of 12 million. I think it’s much bigger than we are being led to believe.
It would be evil, to give people false hope, over what is reported to be a bio-agent.
But, brave (or is it stupid) white altruists have said that lemon juice and raw garlic effected miracle cures in shthole countries, without their white astronaut suits.
If true, this is highly-ironic, considering their fertile countrysides, covered in plant life.
On the positive side, to be fat and overly-clean by fourth world standards is a biological advantage.
Remember when you asked why Greta doesn’t lecture the irresponsible poor? Since when does a virus have to walk on two legs.
RHTF – Reality is about to hit the fan – the Tribulation is coming. By the end of it the vast majority of humanity (99%+) will have departed into eternity. The secret to peace is understanding the love of God and being right with Him through surrendering to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our life – our eternal soul. Then, it does not what happens when this physical body quits working. http://www.TruthandLife.US
The coronavirus now has a whistleblower — a nurse in Wuhan who insists in a shocking online video that close to 90,000 people in China have the disease, with 1000’s dying, far more than the 1,975 reported by officials. “I am in the area where the coronavirus started,” her video begins. Wuhan is the epicenter of the outbreak.
