Could they engineer this virus to be able to live on inorganic material


A virus will sleep on inorganic material, no problem, until the times is right.



This is a flu virus if it dries out its dead. Ad far as being airborne this is nothing new it was discovered all flu virus strains can be passed on by just the act of breathing. Depending on the environment it can stay airborne for several minutes maybe up to an hour.

Now everyone needs to calm down this strain of the flu appears to be no more lethal than the other flu viruses. It kills the elderly and the very young. Most people will just get sick and then recover as their body fights off the flu.

As for the virus itself as the weather warms up this will come to an abrupt halt just like the normal flu at the end of flu season.

Just llke any ol' flu, right? Every flu season, China shuts down a bunch of major cities and halts production in industries and closes down schools and universities, right? Normal operating procedure for the annual flu season, yep!

Sort of hoping the containment measures hold it off here until we hit spring. This place turns into a swamp with high humidity. It's not the deep south, but plenty humid with the rivers.

That was a very informative set of facts, and thanks for providing higher quality information that most of the media is lacking (or substituting it for hype).

I think the medical people in the military have some very trying times ahead.

Cheers

Could they engineer this virus to be able to live on inorganic material like paper and plastics? Think of all the packages coming out of China sent world wide quite a bio weapon.




Thanks for that.
In my job as a mail carrier, I handle hundreds of China packages a week.


All packages should be run thru UV light. It should be mandatory and they should be installed in every postal station

All viruses do not evolve, and not all at the same rate. There are dozens of illnesses that have symptoms similar to the flu. That does not make them as harmless as the flu. That is fatally faulty logic.

Current statistics are not representative of the true nature of the virus. For example, the last time I reported statistics on this outbreak they were as follows:

The mortality rate is currently 2%, 493 dead / 24,557 cases. The recovery rate is 3.9%, 966 / 24,557. There are a few important things to remember though. One is that the total dead and recovered combined only represent 6% of the total known cases. At least one of those two groups is going to grow significantly when the remaining 94% reach their final disposition. If the present ratio remains constant that means roughly 1/3 dead and 2/3 recovered, or, 8,216 dead and 16,321 recovered. That equates to a sustained 33.5% mortality rate.

This is no flu.

Here is a good write up at Vox about China's misstep in handling and informing the world about their coronavirus problem:

China hid the severity of its coronavirus outbreak and muzzled whistleblowers — because it can.

They quote a source of "first death" as December 1 which is weeks before the December 15 that quoted in the main, official story. They say it may have been as early as October that this outbreak happened. It is the end of December where it is officially recognized. By then, it went airborne (social media says it already was, like it just appeared already airborne. Which, even if it is a different strain, is just like the patent that everyone keeps quoting). I like them using the following language:


On February 7, he died of the coronavirus, the China’s People’s Daily reported. And his was just one tragic example of China’s attempts to control the narrative, quiet dissenters, and censor information. (The latest comes in news that Chinese lawyer and citizenship journalist Chen Qiushi, who has been reporting critically on the conditions in Wuhan, has disappeared.)


Disappeared? All hail the long-standing Communist tradition!

Update on the virus being airborne.

DOH: Novel coronavirus not yet classified as airborne



MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Health (DOH) clarified Monday that the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has not yet been classified as an airborne disease.

DOH Undersecretary Eric Domingo said in a press conference that he asked for information from the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding reports saying the 2019-nCoV, which causes acute respiratory disease, is now airborne.

“There’s nothing conclusive about it at this time,” said Domingo. “It’s still being studied by the WHO.”




Coronavirus: Ministry of Health urges calm over virus being airborne



The ministry's director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the disease being airborne isn't something to be nervous about.

"I think the way it's been reported is it's a worrying new development. In fact, aerosol spread of respiratory viruses is well known, it's well described," Dr Bloomfield said.

Respiratory viruses spread three ways - through direct contact, droplets settling on surfaces and aerosol transmission. The latter is one of the main ways they infect people.

Watch the growing rate...
So.... after just reading an article about how the growth is slowing, the new morning numbers rolled in.
Compare...
Monday at noon-

Now-


That’s a 50% increase in cases, 450 more deaths, and 2500 more cured (Still almost a 19% death rate of you believe all the numbers).

This is insane. And watch that ship, boys and girls. They are increasing by 25% every time they test, and no one is talking about how easily it is spreading (prolonged exposure needed my Butt).

They changed the rules on how they count the numbers.

I had read that in the news- but stand by the fact something about this smells fishier than the market it spawned in.

It's a good hope to have, for sure, but the information we have on this virus is pretty limited... so don't get your hopes up too high; it may be able to survive the higher temperatures.
