I think those in the know.... should be brave enough to start releasing the truth to the American people.
Yes...its that serious.
This is a call to certain individuals that lurk on this website that have valuable info. Please we are pleading with you to release what you may know.
From day one that this was posted on ATS over a month ago I have been repeating the truth (as the facts indicate) over and over. And very few people here are listening!
At point A it was absolutely clear that nCoV was a very mild virus, weaker than SARS even, and much less dangerous than many influenza strains.
That is because we have studied CoVs for years and already understand a lot about them, this 'novel' strain isn't very extraordinary or significantly different relatively speaking.
And all month long I was giving good information, I reiterated the experts statements and tried to explain the basics for anyone that wanted the straight dope on the situ.
Although it's somewhat ironic, I am telling you that the WHO is providing solid and reliable information about this virus being a mild cold. That's what we're dealing with here.
No one can provide a single shred of evidence substantiating the claims that this virus is significantly different from the other CoVs we've got plenty of information on already. So far this virus appears to be acting very similarly to the prior strains we have studied.
China's decision to call a national quarantine is the real ??? in all of this. It was clearly uncalled for and will cause far more damage to their society than nCoV ever could. That's the part of this that doesn't make any sense.

Is it wrong to prep? Nope. Is it wrong to inform those around you about the potential? Nope.
But if EVERYONE did it right now, there would not be enough to go around and we don't need create a run on that stuff right now, but in 4 weeks when we really need too for the majority.
I just picked up another 25 pounds of rice, big container of hand sanitizer, and a case of paper towels after work earlier.
I am slowly picking up supplies because I believe that if this is not contained soon, then there will be empty shelves everywhere. I hope not, but just in case my family will be better off than most because I choose to think ahead a little.
I hope nothing comes from thus but, I have a pretty bad feeling that if I do not act a little on this, then it may be too late.
Good to be prepared, but you should add bottle water or at least know where you can at least get well water.
My greatest fear and this has not been brought up yet, is what about those working at the nuclear power plants. Can you imagine if they can't leave their homes?
I am currently contemplating more toilet paper.
Lol. I dont want to end up in a situation.
One of the things I have concentrated on too. I could go without a decent meal but not without tp if my IBS acts up during a shelter in place scenario.

We simply need to lift the quarantine and have everyone go back to their normal lives. That's the only viable solution.
A few thousand deaths is a small price to pay for saving the economy, because that economy keeps the 7 billion of us fed and alive. Without it (a good economy) most of us will not survive. They gotta end the quarantine asap.

Link for India paper on coronavirus origins. Shows man made
This is a preliminary study. Considering the grave situation, it was shared in BioRxiv as soon as possible to have creative discussion on the fast evolution of SARS-like corona viruses. It was not our intention to feed into the conspiracy theories and no such claims are made here.
While we appreciate the criticisms and comments provided by scientific colleagues at BioRxiv forum and elsewhere, the story has been differently interpreted and shared by social media and news platforms. We have positively received all criticisms and comments.
To avoid further misinterpretation and confusions world-over, we have decided to withdraw the current version of the preprint and will get back with a revised version after reanalysis, addressing the comments and concerns. Thank you to all who contributed in this open-review process.
: Authors of the Manuscript
bioRxiv is receiving many new papers on coronavirus 2019-nCoV. A reminder: these are preliminary reports that have not been peer-reviewed. They should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or be reported in news media as established information.
Just a couple of weeks ago, scientists held out hope the new coronavirus could be largely contained within China. Now they know its spread can be minimized at best, and governments are planning for the worst.
“It is not a matter of if—it is a matter of when,” said Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security and a spokesman for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. “There is not a doubt this is going to end up in most countries eventually.”

#Wuhan Institute of Virology filed #Remdesivir patent BEFORE virus spread. They knew & said nothing
Interesting piece that looks into an article posted by Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Military Medicine Institute of the People Liberation Army Academy of Military Science. It discusses how they applied for a new use patent with the drug Remdesivir in the treatment of 2019-nCov on Jan 21st 2020.
Questions are raised in how Wuhan Institute of Virology could of been patient application ready in such a short time. For the case that this is a man made biological attack it does add some weight.
Shi Zheng Li is named on this patient application. Allegations exist that she was involved in the gene editing of this virus. Investigations continue.
Remdesivir is not yet licensed or approved anywhere globally and has not been demonstrated to be safe or effective for any use. At the request of treating physicians, and with the support of local regulatory agencies, who have weighed the risks and benefits of providing an experimental drug with no data in 2019-nCoV, Gilead has provided remdesivir for use in a small number of patients with 2019-nCoV for emergency treatment in the absence of any approved treatment options.
Gilead is working with health authorities in China to establish a randomized, controlled trial to determine whether remdesivir can safely and effectively be used to treat 2019-nCoV. We are also expediting appropriate laboratory testing of remdesivir against 2019-nCoV samples.
he company strives to transform and simplify care for people with life-threatening illnesses around the world. Gilead has operations in more than 35 countries worldwide, with headquarters in Foster City, California.
