Yet another Wu-Flu post!
Like many of you, I've been trying to follow this spread of the virus that's taking so many lives to see just what I 'may' be facing in the
future. A few questions came to mind over the last few days but I've been too lazy to dig (guess I'm not all THAT worried). This morning,
happenstance answered those questions but only seemed to raise more in the process.
How many REAL known deaths are related to this flu?
Where are these deaths?
Are they all in China?
Why aren't we hearing about deaths anywhere else?
All good solid questions... The strange part are the answers. The latest numbers reported show an odd reality. So say, the survival rate is about
75% which sounds great when you look at it in this manner but when you say 1 in 4 will die... not so great! The number affected differ between
sources and we all know that China isn't really coming forth with the real truth of it all. For now, I'll use one sources numbers:
- Total Confirmed Affected = 43,141
- Total Confirmed Recovered = 4,340
- Total Confirmed Dead = 1,018
So far, based on the numbers here - Should the virus stop affecting any more people, we might expect 10,000+ people are going to die from this virus.
Thing is, it will not stop there. Millions that were at ground zero are anywhere but under quarantine. This means that over the next 2 weeks, we'll
find out which places really are affected. Unfortunately, when we know that total, we will have to wait another 2 weeks before we know the effect
those people had on the rest of the world and even more affected.
It's going to be VERY hard to escape this virus simply because it takes up to 14 days for symptoms to show. By then, that person could have spread
the virus even more so by simply going to a coffee shop, attending a concert, going to the mall, school, parties, rally, church or any other group
Does this fact scare anyone?
But wait... Not so fast. Enter the weirdness of all of this.
Sure the virus is a big deal but I noticed that almost all of the deaths are in China. Almost all of the affected are in China. Why is this? Is it
perhaps that China's healthcare system really sucks? Afterall, the doctor who discovered this fancy bug also succumbed to the virus and died. What
does that mean? We know it affects seniors and middle aged people the most, according to resources. Children apparently have a pretty good defence
against this virus are aren't affected like everyone else. Usually the symptoms are very mild if at all in children. The conspiracy here could be
to wipe out all of the elderly and the weakest of the middle age but why only is it affecting China this way? Genetic Bio Weapon maybe?
There are a few people in the quarantine areas that are respected reporters and whistle blowers that are describing very dire occurrences. People
dead in the streets, body bags in abundance awaiting cremation and more. Most of these good samaritans are either now quarantined or imprisoned for
'letting the cat out of the bag', so to speak.
Let's look at the numbers, shall we?
- Total Confirmed Affected Outside of Mainland China = 135
- Total Confirmed Recovered Outside of Mainland China = 40
- Total Confirmed Dead Outside of Mainland China = 2
So far, there are only TWO deaths (and that's if you count Honk Kong separate from China) outside of Mainland China. However, there are more than
135 people that were affected and out of those 135, only 2 have died from it.
In the US alone, we have 13 cases, 3 recovered and no deaths. Reports are all saying that our own infected are doing just fine.
So as I mentioned, either healthcare is totally trash in China, the people are already very unhealthy (this is pretty much a given - but what about
the doctor?), this virus is racist, or some other unknown factor is at play here. Based on what we see in China, the results outside of China should
be the same. We should see no less than 10 deaths already taken place by now of the infected.
Another question is... How does China have 43 THOUSAND people infected but outside the country there are only 135 people infected? With over a
million people 'missing' from quarantine, you would figure the numbers are a lot higher all over the world. I don't expect the quarantine to be
THAT effective, especially with so many missing.
Finally, the virus had a chance to infect this many people in mainland China since December (earlier than we were told originally) so that means it
had an even greater chance of infecting far more people outside of Mainland China.
I don't know about you guys and gals but I'm scratching my head on this one. So what's REALLY going on here?
