Governments act on the greed of those in power. Doesn’t matter if it’s a monarchy, democracy or communist. Those in power act in the interests of their own...sometimes disguised as compassion. IMHO

Been watching the numbers evolve at the John's Hopkins site, and there is something that stands out to me regarding the Hubei numbers.


As at today

Total Infected is 67,800

Total death is 3,122

Total Recovered is 56,883

Total Infected (and NOT dead or recovered) is 7,795

In addition..  the TOTAL INFECTED in all of China has increased only slightly from 80.3K on March 4 to 81.1K on March 18.. so an increase of only 800 patients (some of them outside Hubei).  Not 100% sure it's the right interpretation, but to me this says that the vast majority of the 7,795 INFECTED have been in hospital for more than 2 weeks.. which is longer than I expected from reading elsewhere.

Makes me wonder if these patients could survive at all if taken off ventilator. Certainly seems like a LOT of these patients are likely 3+ weeks in intensive care now.

This shows that the CCP is still heavily controlling everything it can on social media in China. If you tell the truth on social media, you lose your account. Foreign reporters are now being expelled, which is likely why this video finally made it out of China.

In Italy, those who are recovering from a severe or critical case of the Wuhan Coronavirus are staying in the hospital for about three to four weeks. Pretty much the only ones that seem to be getting out sooner are those who die. Therefore, long hospital stays appear to be the norm and not the exception.

On the other hand, there is mounting evidence that the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) has been lying about their numbers (both infections and deaths) from the beginning until now. Therefore, nobody should believe anything coming out of the CCP (which controls all news media in China). It is one thing to not even know how many infections you have (like the US, UK and the Philippines), but the CCP knows everything that is happening within China's borders because they control all information.

Nobody from China should enter any other country because China is still a major source of the Wuhan Coronavirus. The CCP not only allowed infected people to travel around China, but also allowed them to travel internationally. Countries with the closest ties to China are those that are suffering first, and so far, worst. The belt and road system takes on a whole new meaning.

I might already have had it. On March 2 it hit suddenly and I had lots of fever and headaches, plus weakness. Later, there was coughing. 

I missed a fair bit of work and am now on the mend. Since I never got tested, I don't think I will ever know if it was the Wuhan Virus Center Virus, or maybe it should be called the Wuhan Wet Market Virus.
