Unknown why the links aren't setting .
It's top result for zoonotic pandemic / Who coronavirus

Reason we might be getting this early , it triggers preset powers not widely publicised . Can't find specifics but the papers assure there is a sunset clause allowing the powers to lapse when unneeded .
May include requisitions of unsold PPE etc. May includeimmediate lockdown s , rationing my , school closures , shop rules etc.
It's spilled beans ?

Nothing like a person that proclaims their own truth.

But I think the fresh air comment might refer to the pollution clearing in China from factory shut downs.

Let’s place the Coronavirus in context again...



A 2013 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that severe pollution during the 1990s cut five and a half (5.5) years from the average life expectancy of people living in northern China, where toxic air has led to increased rates of stroke, heart disease and cancer.[84]

A 2015 study from the non-profit organization Berkeley Earth estimated that 1.6 million people in China die each year from heart, lung and stroke problems because of polluted air.[85]

Funny how the pushers of doom porn leave out certain details why the effects of Coronavirus might be more serious in China vs the USA.

This is a pandemic. It has appeared on most continents of the world.

The virus specifically targets the elderly and infirm for death. The young and healthy seem to get off fairly light for the most part.

The coronavirus has the possibility of destabilizing the entire world.

Why?

It kills the elderly. Those over 60 seem to be the majority of the ones who die from it.

Who are our world leaders? Mostly the elderly.

Who are the leaders in the US? Mostly the elderly.
Most of Congress and the Senate
Nearly all of the Supreme Court

Think! What would happen if (God forbid!) it got loosed in DC.
Close to age 80: Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi
In their late 70's: Joe Biden and Chuck Shumer
In their mid 70's: Trump
In their mid 60's: Pence

That is what a pandemic does, it spreads, world wide.

With this virus the challenge is what is happening in Iran.
Their government is in a tailspin with Parliment infected.

Today the average age of a Congressperson is 57,
which means about half of US Congresspeople are over 60
and at great risk.
Today the average age of a US Senator is 61,
which means over half of US Senators are over 60
and at great risk.

The US is not alone here.
Most governments are run by the geriatric crowd
who have the highest risk of dying of the virus.

The WHO is right to be very concerned. If many world leaders die from the virus as is happening in Iran, this virus has the potential to destabilize most of the governments of the world. Thereby destabilizing the economies and the safety and security of the world.

Another tidbit, most of not all of the first world countries have a very large elderly population. Meaning countries like this could rapidly overwhelm their health care systems with serious CV cases.



Strangely enough, the virus almost seems to be designed to target the elderly population, with a few younger outliers, but mostly the over 60's. Strangely enough it was first seen in a town with a bioweapons facility. Strangely enough it was first seen in a country with an enormous problem with the elderly (non-productive) overwhelming their social system to the point of being dangerous to the welfare of the working class who are overburdened with elder care. But I'm sure that is just a strange tidbit. Also, strangely enough, their political class doesn't seem to be catching it, at least they haven't reported any of their elite catching the disease, unlike other countries like Iran.

The WHO is correct in calling it a pandemic (if they did, I see there is a debate) however, world leaders are right to be concerned about the virus potentially destabilizing the world.

The best thing the world can do right now is tighten quarantine measures. Even if it means quarantining entire towns or nations from travel. The economic repercussions are enormous for sure, but once the threat of CV is over and a vaccine is developed - the economy will slowly rebound. For me at least economic repercussions are not as important as saving lives. Quarantine of towns or nations, saves lives, economies will recover faster if the virus is contained and when it dies out, as most viruses do.

The US was correct in forbidding entry to people from areas where the virus is rampant, so far that has kept the numbers way down in the nation. Keeping up vigilant quarantine where ever the virus appears is the #1 best measure for the entire world.

For those of you who think it is not a pandemic, and not a problem. I disagree entirely. The young will mostly have a bad cold, the over 60's who run the world right now - well it is not pretty to think about if we don't take firm measures now and not treat it lightly.

Dude. Life will go on. The fear driving the hoarding of stuff is crap. Would you care to address the differences in China vs the USA that will cause a very different impact in the USA.

Would you agree the Coronavirus has been in the USA for at least six weeks. How many deaths in the USA at the six week mark vs China at their six week mark?

Would you agree that the US has reacted with overly strict quarantine measures? Maybe that is the difference, IT IS the difference.

Swift and firm measures to contain the virus is happening in the US.

It did not happen in China at first and the virus spread like a, well a virus.

I don't see where the WHO has announced it officially as of the time of this post.

Would be nice for admins to change the title of the thread to reflect that.

Back in 2017, the World Bank issued the world's first pandemic bonds. The bonds are meant to shift some of the financial risk of a global pandemic on to investors, but they've been criticized for having 'triggers' that are too tough to generate payouts.
Now, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread, it's worth looking at how these bonds are structured and what they can tell us about the future of public-private partnerships in finance.
In this episode of Odd Lots, we speak with Olga Jonas of the Harvard Global Health Institute, and a former economist at the World Bank with significant pandemic experience. She gives us her take on the bonds as well as the economic impact of big epidemics.



hear 29 minute interview available in article link:

those complicated 'Bonds' are intended to payout to the market-makers and investors
and has some 360 hurdles to avoid any payouts to the poorer nations that suffer less than Pandemic sickness/deaths in the populations
2 of the 3 payots have been met, the Bonds life is until June 2020 with the World Bank, CDC, WHO all up to their nose hairs in skirting the pronouncing of Coronavirus as a full fledged Pandemic

thus keeping close to 1/2 Billion in monies in the hands of the Bond makers and Investors instead of the poorer nations caught up in the undeclared Pandemic

TITLE: World Bank “pandemic bonds” may explain why the WHO has yet to declare the coronavirus a “pandemic” … even as it spreads to over 60 countries

still another source finally reporting on pandemic bonds (for the elite wealthy)

and leaving the question hanging----- whom developed the COVID19 virus ? bill gates/WHO/CDCusa/ch

I know people say that it’s nothing to worry about but I’m immuno compromised so I’m kinda worried. On top of that my issue is with my lungs so I’m thinking I’d I got it it wouldn’t be good. I think I’m about to stop going in public honestly. Don’t wanna chance it. Smh. F***!

Do you have three or four cited examples? By federal or state officials? And what states.

Or innuendo by a general hand wave opinion?

I think it’s never wrong to be worried and show real concern for health. It’s another thing when it used as a weapon of fear for a desired political outcome.

I agree. I’d rather them be bluffing and fear mongering than it be an actual pandemic if I’m being honest lol.

SARS was a pandemic too and we are still alive.


SARS only killed 800 people in a about a year, were just 3 months in and over 3000. Infection rate is actually beating out the 2009 h1n1 rate. This is the dumbest comparison I've ever seen, you could at least compare it to the regular flu, but SARS? No.

Result ! And that'll be why they're leaning so hard on changing the definition ,

There's probably much more than half a balloon depending on it.

And other plans like the UK govt contingency plans will hinge on the pending announcement.

/thanks.

Given the second source is from natural news , known for fake articles it's prudent to discount the idea that c19 was released on purpose.
Natural news ARE lying doom mongers .
The first premise has lots of credibility though. Validation of the former would be an impossible task
