Russia just confirmed two cases as BNO site reports.

posted on Jan, 31 2020 @ 06:55 AM

14 people have the virus
10 more Japanese are under observation
China says 213 have died so far
10,000 in China have now been exposed (numbers vary on what part of China reports are coming in from)
Some are saying its a new strain of virus (couldn't make out the Japanese what they meant by that)
US citizens are advised not to travel to China (I thought there was a total ban ), guess not
Philippines bans Chinese from entering
Singapore now bans Chinese from entering
Germany suspends flights to China till Feb. 8th
Japan Airlines till Feb. 8th , only to some cities. That really sucks, business talks and peoples health can walk to the morgue
Italy, the 2 suspects on the liner tested negative
Japanese are denied entry to China, I'm puzzled on that one
Get this ATS Members, WHO said there will be NO travel or trade restrictions regarding China. I'm quite sure I heard it right
Japanese are advised not to travel to China, but there are no restrictions, hmm, them poor salarymen, I hope they tell the companies to go fly a kite
PM Abe quote: the economy could be affected
Osaka city is now financially hurting. Businesses are way down from tourist related outlets
I found this weird, I think I heard this right. Chinese sell their ice cream to Japan? Ban on that. Like I said, I think I heard it right. I have never seen Chinese made ice cream here. We do have Bordens. Hmm. wonder if that is made in China?
China business news: 0.2% down
Japan business news: 0.1% down
note: if worse for the first 3 months it will be 0.4% down (personally, no one really knows yet, my opinion only on it may be a lot worse)
PM Abe: one Chinese plant closure WILL effect other plants
And can have a negative impact on the economy and sadly, tourism.

Well my friends at ATS, there you have from the Land of the Rising Sun

Wife and I did go out and buy a few more things just in case things turn bad and for all real purposes it has in Osaka for many business owners.

Thanks for the update

According to BNO News, there are actually 16 confirmed cases in Japan, with 2 individuals "not being included" in the numbers because they have tested positive "without symptoms" (you have to scroll down - it's the 2nd bullet under "Notes"):

Italy has declared a state of emergency for six months.

something about this feels more politically motivated than a genuine response to the virus

I'll be on skype with my Italian friend and I'll try to update on your statement.

Taiwan just cancelled their big video game show, hitting Twitter now. Links should come shortly.

Got a message from a good friend in Manila, Philippines. Everywhere out of masks, disinfectants, and antibiotics. Many super angry at their President for allowing Chinese travelers into country. He feels riots may happen at any time. He’s been there for 16 years and I’ve never heard him this concerned. He also brought wife’s family up from southern islands to stay with them coz her father has health issues.

WeChat is being locked down much tighter. It appears they are blocking some accounts owned by non-Chinese from communicating outside China. My friends are telling other friends they are answering my messages but I’m not seeing it on my end. Wife’s family doesn’t appear to have this issue.

A couple of people in her family aren’t answering messages for a few days. They are organizing some others to check on them but it’s hard when in lockdown. They can’t stray to far from home to others areas or they risk police grabbing them. It’s one of her favorite cousins not answering.

Earlier you posted an article from zerohedge about the doctor from Wuhan who was studing why bats could host a virus for so long without being sick.

I was just reading another report it seems everyone was trying to figure out why bats can carry a disease for so long and not get it.

But scientists still don’t know exactly how bats are able to carry such deadly diseases without succumbing themselves. So Jonathan Towner, a scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Viral Special Pathogens Branch, decided to investigate the colony of Egyptian fruit bats implicated in the Marburg fatality in Uganda. He traveled to Uganda, captured uninfected bats, and brought them back to the CDC.

As reported in Cell, the findings may eventually lead to a deeper understanding of virus transmission, and better treatments for humans who become infected.

“What we learn from bats may help us in the development of pharmacological agents,

Does anyone wonder if the world was competing for a vaccine but China's got out? Just wondering some of this is pretty over my head. But I figure no harm asking.

I watched the 9 pm news here. What I wrote was on the news. 14 confirmed and 10 are under observation. Yes, reports can change like in every 3 hours here due to many tv stations have their reporters on go and far as I know they don't BS around just to get viewers. They actually report news that really isn't "highly addictive" to watch. Can't think of the right word. LOL or at least I can't spell it, but starts with letter "S".

They are being taken to former staff accomodation near newcastle. It is close to a specialist hospital. No one is saying armed guards, and they have not yet landed.

The last thing we need is people making things up to scare!

One has to ask the question .... Is there more money to be made from Curing a disease or treating it ? The Central banking system has some hard questions to answer .... After All The Financial Puppet Masters run the world - and at the moment with All things made in China - now in lockdown it isn't looking good.. I find it Curious that at the end of 2019 (a mere month ago) the United Nations (WHO) was running out of money - and now it seems they are relevant enough to justify their existence .... Coincidence ? YMMV But that is where my head is at

Here's another study:

Says more men seem to contract the virus than women, which may be due to women's X chromosome protection (Women have tow X chromosomes, while men have one X and one Y).

However, the study was conducted on 67 men and only 32 women. It also mentions they have underlying conditions.

They would need to do a much larger study with equal numbers of men and women.

They can host it for so long because it's a regular pathogen for them. The bug is adapted to using the fruit bat as a host just like the fruit bat is adapted to having that particular pathogen in its system from time to time. The two have reached a sort of equilibrium. I imagine they are locked in the same sort of arms race our own immune systems are locked in with certain strains of rhinovirus, the flu, and other types of coronavirus. We get them every year. They're usually an inconvenience at best, and really only become a danger to us if we have other issues going on.

The danger to us from these pathogens is when they jump hosts from fruit bats (or whatever animal) to us because we, and they, aren't adapted to one another. That's what makes them so lethal. They don't want to die out anymore than we do, but that ends up being the result until we adapt to one another like they've adapted to fruit bats.

It seems like we're getting closer and closer to something like the CronoVirus mutating into something like Ebola and retaining it's Airborne qualities. Then it will be Game Over as entire Cities, towns, villages will be dying out over night.

Hope you're wrong on that one.

[ENG SUB] Social Media History of Outrageous Bureaucracy Amidst Outbreak

This video contains translated text and chats of some of the issues the hospitals in Wuhan are facing. The Red Cross could be doing better with some political favoritism and profiteering going on. Public donations are falling into a black hole and not getting through. The travel ban has big implications for medical staff. Supplies are running low with the dead pilling up. Staff are getting over worked, some without food. Some staff have resorted to making their own masks and protective suits.

Same thing goes for lung diseases, it serves as protection for tissue. They had low incidence of lung disease but something that is often missed until it is too late is the ability for lung tissue to perfuse properly from repeated infections or low grade exposure to toxins. This will increase ACE2 in lung tissue.

Many if them were unhealthy, they had labs you would see in American patients of the same age. If they had other underlying issues like reflux, esophageal issues, and repeated infections, a lung disease diagnosis could be missed.

We see it here sometimes, patient was a smoker, very low grade or nonexistent COPD, but he needs continuous positive pressure oxygen support to keep his O2 sat above 90. Patient ends up being put on palliative care and dies. Come to find out, he had multiple pneumonia infections that slowly damaged his tissue caused by chronic reflux or a neurological problem with the esophagus.

report here about normal winter flu increasing dramatically aswell.. in france at same time as this coronavirus!

Flu epidemic has killed 22 in France, agency warns

Winter ‘flu has already killed 22 people in France this season, as the epidemic worsens across the country, health agency Santé Publique France has confirmed. At a time when the Wuhan coronavirus is dominating the headlines, the French health agency issued the ‘flu warning in its weekly report on January 29. The victims - 22 since November - include 12 cases of people aged 15 to 64, along with two children aged under 15, and eight elderly people aged 65 and over. An epidemic has been declared across all regions in metropolitan France, with the exception of Normandy. Last week, there were 190 ‘flu consultations reported across the country, a significant rise compared to the week before (122). ‘Flu-like symptoms reported by home visiting service SOS-Médecins had also increased over the past week, Santé Publique France said, from 7.3% the week before, to 11.3% last week. Hospital visits - with or without eventual admission - for ‘flu or ‘flu-like symptoms had also significantly increased, the agency said, with 5,514 and 460 respectively last week, versus 3,480 and 335 the week before. It said: “[Hospital] visits main concern children aged five and under (35%) and those aged 15-44 (31%). Hospitalisations concern mainly children under five (29%) and people aged 75 and over (21%).” Since November, the agency said that 244 severe ‘flu cases had been reported, with 53 the average age of patients admitted to hospital. Of these, 75% had additional risk factors, such as being aged over 65, or with chronic conditions such as diabetes or a lack of heart or lung function.

Coronavirus mixing with normal flu??

I havnt looked through the last 20 odd pages but i'm guessing this has ben posted about the 2 cases in Newcastle:

Urgent hunt for anyone who came into contact with British coronavirus patients as first cases hit UK: Two people from same family 'returning from China' test positive for killer virus in Newcastle

The British Government is scrambling to find anyone who came into contact with the UK's first two coronavirus patients, who were confirmed this morning and rushed into quarantine at a hospital in Newcastle. No details have been confirmed about the patients except that they are members of the same family, but it is assumed that they picked up the disease in China because nobody else in the UK is known to have it. They did not fly back to the UK on the Government's evacuation flight, which is scheduled to land in Oxfordshire at around 1pm this afternoon, but are believed to have travelled into the country recently. A total of 190 people have tested negative for the virus in the UK and two have now tested positive. The confirmed infections make England the 23rd country or territory outside of China to declare cases. The Government is still trying to track down 600 people who travelled from Wuhan to the UK between January 10 and 24 – of 1,466 total passengers, 162 have left the UK and 760 are now outside of the two-week danger zone.

Latest figures have in total are at:

213 people have now died of the coronavirus and around 9,900 people have been infected worldwide
