Dr. Leonard Horowitz, the famed pharma industry whistleblower, quoted one expert as saying he would plan a bio-attack

“with subtle finesse, to make it look like a natural outbreak. That would delay the response and lock up the decision-making process. Even if you suspect biological terrorism, it’s hard to prove. It’s equally hard to disprove . . . You can trace an arms shipment, but it’s almost impossible to trace the origins of a virus that comes from a bug.”

One author noted that a properly-done release of an infectious agent would make diagnosis and treatment difficult, adding that this kind of bio-warfare cannot be traced to its source and might be considered an “act of God”......

Larry Romanof on the history of biological weapons war 

What a complicated way to engage in suicide. As a weapon it is not very credible as it cannot be controlled or targetted and there is no existing theory that allows this. These are the two things that make something capable of being weaponized. A disease that crosses from animals cannot be targetted for some people and not others and this is a disease that is sourced in animals.

Chris Busby: Corona Virus Seems to be an engineered bioweapon

Russian sources, highest, say the virus was engineered inside Libya at biolabs now controlled by Israel

same folks who named the dead CIA guy on the plane….who is really dead…

 A disease that crosses from animals cannot be targetted for some people and not others and this is a disease that is sourced in animals.....

It is not a disease that crosses from animals........the gene sequence identified, with lab insertion genes and HIV sequences, make this almost an impossibility....that it is an animal virus, engineered!

And from what I´ve now read, the carrier protein within this gene sequence, predominates in Asiian people, making them more susceptible....of course not sure on this point, but of course these evil labs would necessarily be experimenting to find genetic differences to exploit!
How sick this all is of course....but again all the more reason to demand answers to what is going on in this Canada biolab4 in Winnipoeg!!

Question:

The experts still seem to be using the # of deaths/# of cases method to determine death rate. Why are they doing this? Since they are experts you would think they have a logical reason for doing so. This suggests about 2% death rate.

I would use the # of deaths/# of recovered and place all the rest as unknown as we do not know the final result of those still with the disease. This suggests a 14% death rate.

Now I would also put a big asterisk beside it stating that there are an unknown -- but probably extremely large number of mild cases that are not counted thereby driving the death rate to a low level -- perhaps under 1%.

But the methodology used to divide deaths by total cases seems to be bogus.

Anyone else have a method that makes sense?

Bacchus

2% is still bad. If all of Toronto (not GTA) caughter it that would mean 60,000 dead

I have been checking rense.com statistics of deaths per recovered people.....which seems to suggest the radiation theory of the toxicity of the virus...in the cases of Wuhan province and that cruise liner, the death rates seem to be over 10%...far less than anywhere else worldwide and in China...these stats of course may be wrong, so the hypthesis as well.......but both Wuhan and the cruise liner were under heavy coverage of 5G and WIFI microradiation....suggesting that the microradiation may seriously increase the deadliness of the corona engineered virus....

of course other factors intervene, such as the compromised immune systems of the people contracting the virus, from diabetes, etc.

If anyone has any evidence to refute this theory, please forward......

The problem is this constant strem of unsourced unproven crap that you use to derail every thread you get involved in into an examination of the fantasy of conspiracy theorists. Just stop this. I have personally refuted tons of this shit from you and yet you persist until people get so tired they walk away.

Rense.com is a bullshit site from a bullshit conspiracy theorist who is also a raving nazi - or at least sympathizersympathizer/ right winger who promotes shit like pizza-gate and other widly debunked fantasies. This guy is a former confidant of Alex Jones who has since fallen out and called him out as being a Zionist -- LOL. He also promotes arguments about the moon landings being fake, he is a 9-11  so called truther, he promotes pro-gun conspiracy theories pretending mass shootings are fake, he is a Holocaust denier, and writes conspiracy theories of AIDs. He publishes numerous articles hating women.

You can get some links from here and by googling. I will not link from here to any of this garbage.

You have been asked to stop. I have refuted many of your recent ravings. I am running out of ways to ask you to stand down on this crap.

Dow plunges by 950 points on fears coronavirus will tank global economic growth

Wall Street plunged on Monday, after a spike in the number of reported cases of coronavirus fueled fears that the epidemic would have a serious impact on global economic growth.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by 979 points at the opening bell, erasing all gains for the blue-chip index for the year. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell by 4 percent, with the S&P 500 dropping 3.2 percent.

Travel-related stocks continued to take heavy hits as the epidemic restricted movement and discouraged vacationers, with Delta Air Lines and American Airlines falling by 5 percent. Casino operators Wynn Resorts and MGM Resorts each tumbled by around 4 percent.....

okay....on the theory that the virus is enhanced by the application of micro wave radiation...an example......please refute the evidence with other scientific studies but do not claim it bogus because you don't like the website! This is a serious hypothesis! And argument for lessening our dependence on EMF pollution.....bs rhetoric against this without counter evidence is totally irresponsible!

Likewise on the bs that the gene was not bioengineered! where is any evidence to explain how the natural genes and medicines from bats somehow naturally evolved to intoxinate humans? The thesis that the gene was bioengineered must be tested on its scientific merits!
The experimentation on genetic material in these bio 4 level labs across the planet, including Winnipeg must be stopped!

To suggest this is bogus without counter evidence of the bioengineered nature of the corona virus is likewise totally irresponsible!

DHS Secretary Grilled over Coronavirus Preparedness as Trump Downplays Risks

The CDC’s stark warning came on the same day that White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow dismissed the threat of coronavirus, telling CNBC the virus was “contained.” His remark echoed President Trump’s assessment Tuesday that coronavirus was “very well under control.” On Capitol Hill, lawmakers grilled senior administration officials over their response to the crisis. This is Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana, who blasted acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf for struggling to produce basic facts about the coronavirus outbreak.

Sen. John Kennedy: “Mr. Secretary” —

Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf: “My budget supports” —

Sen. John Kennedy: “You’re supposed to keep us safe.”

Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf: “My budget supports the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security.” —

Sen. John Kennedy: “You’re the secretary of homeland security.”

Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf: “Yes, sir.”

Sen. John Kennedy: “And you can’t tell me if we have enough respirators.”

Meanwhile, U.S. stock markets plunged for the second straight day Tuesday, with the Dow Jones falling by nearly 1,900 points this week on fears the coronavirus will further damage the global economy.

CDC Warns of “Severe” Disruption to Daily Life in U.S. as Coronavirus Spreads

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning Americans to prepare for an outbreak of the coronavirus that’s rocked China and hammered the global economy — saying it’s not a question of “if” but “when” the virus will come to the United States. The warning came as new coronavirus cases spread far beyond China’s Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, where more than 50 million people remain on lockdown.

Overnight, more deaths were reported in China, Italy, Japan and in South Korea, where a U.S. soldier has been quarantined after contracting coronavirus. In Iran, where the public health system has been decimated by U.S.-led sanctions, a lawmaker says 50 people have died of coronavirus infection in the city of Qom alone. Elsewhere, Algeria has reported its first case, and Brazil has reported its possible first patient.

In the U.S., San Francisco Mayor London Breed declared a state of emergency Tuesday, even though there have been no reported cases in the Bay Area. Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, warned Americans to prepare for serious disruptions to daily life.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier: “Some community-level interventions that may be most effective in reducing the spread of a new virus, like school closures, are also the most likely to be associated with unwanted consequences and further disruptions. Secondary consequences of some of these measures might include missed work and loss of income. I understand this whole situation may seem overwhelming and that disruption to everyday life may be severe, but these are things that people need to start thinking about now.”

New Chinese study indicates novel coronavirus did not originate in Huanan seafood market

A new study by Chinese researchers indicates the novel coronavirus may have begun human-to-human transmission in late November from a place other than the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan.

The study published on ChinaXiv, a Chinese open repository for scientific researchers, reveals the new coronavirus was introduced to the seafood market from another location, and then spread rapidly from market to market. The findings were the result of analyses of genome-wide data, sources of infection and the route of spread of 93 samples of the novel coronavirus collected from 12 countries across four continents.

The study believes that patient zero transmitted the virus to workers or sellers at the Huanan seafood market. The crowded market facilitated the further transmission of the virus to buyers, which caused a wider spread in early December 2019.

According to the researchers, the new coronavirus experienced two sudden population expansions, including one on January 6, 2020, which was related to the Chinese New Year's Day holiday.

An earlier expansion occurred on December 8, implying human-to-human transmission may have started in early December or late November, and then accelerated when it reached the Huanan seafood market.....

..so who is patient zero? Where was the initial contagion? coupled with the evidence that the virus was engineered. the suspicion remains strong that it may have been from the Pentagon-WHO sponsored Wuhan level 4 biohazard laboratory in Wuhan!

U.S. Biowarfare Programs Have 13,000 Death Scientists Hard at Work
America’s $100-billion Germ Warfare Industry a “Criminal Enterprise,” Author of U.S. Biowarfare Act Says

By Sherwood Ross

The American legal authority who in 1989 drafted the law Congress enacted to comply with the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention says the U.S. today [October 11, 2015] is in flagrant violation of that Convention.

“Since Sept. 11, 2001, we have spent somewhere in the area of $100 billion” on offensive biological warfare, charges Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, Champaign.

Boyle said an estimated 13,000 “death scientists” in 400 laboratories in the U.S. and abroad, are employed making new strains of offensive killer germs that will be resistant to vaccines.

For example, Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka’s group at the University of Wisconsin has found a way to increase the toxicity of the flu virus by 200 times! Boyle says Kawaoka is “the same death scientist who resurrected the genocidal Spanish Flu virus for the Pentagon for offensive biowarfare purposes.”

As for fighting flu, the National Institutes of Health in 2006, a typical year, got only $120 million from Congress to fight flu, which kills an estimated 36,000 Americans annually.  By contrast, Congress gave NIH $1.76 billion for “biodefense,” even though the anthrax outbreak in 2001 killed just five persons.

“These distorted budgetary allocations,” (spending 15 times as much for germ warfare as for fighting flu) demonstrate that the priority here is not the promotion of the public health of American citizens but rather to further develop the U.S. offensive biowarfare industry that will someday ‘blowback’ upon the American people with a catastrophic pandemic,” Boyle said.

He went on to say the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) are “ready, willing, and able to launch biowarfare when it suits their interests…They have a super-weapons-grade anthrax that they already used against us in October, 2001.”

Boyle here was referring to the anthrax pathogens mailed to two U.S. Senators (Tom Daschle, of South Dakota and Patrick Leahy, of Vermont) and others after 9/11 that were traced back to the Government’s biowarfare lab at Fort Detrick, Md.

Boyle’s remarks came in response to written questions from Sherwood Ross, a Miami, Fla.-based columnist. Asked if the recent outbreaks of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia could be from U.S. Government-backed facilities, Boyle replied:

“These Ebola vaccines were experimental U.S. biowarfare vaccines that were being tested out in West Africa. It was a result of testing out of the U.S. biowarfare vaccines at our lab in Kenema, Sierra Leone, that created the West African Ebola pandemic in the first place.”

Boyle warned that the Galveston National Laboratory in Texas, a high-containment research lab, has been seeking for potential biowarfare agents in the wild in other parts of the world “in order to turn them into biological weapons.”

He said, “They should shut down Galveston as an ongoing criminal enterprise along the lines of the S.S. and the Gestapo — except that Galveston is far more dangerous to humanity than Hitler’s death squads ever were.”

Boyle added, “American universities have a long history of willingly permitting their research agenda, researchers, institutes, and laboratories to be co-opted, corrupted, and perverted by the the Pentagon and the C.I.A. into death science. These include Wisconsin, North Carolina, Boston U., Harvard, M.I.T., Tulane, University of Chicago, and my own University of Illinois, as well as many others.”

Coronavirus is here but we're just not ready for it

The world is not ready for the global spread of the novel coronavirus, according to the renowned Canadian epidemiologist who led a team of experts to China to study the virus on behalf of the World Health Organization.

Dr. Bruce Aylward returned from a two-week mission to China, including the city of Wuhan where the spread of the coronavirus began, urging other countries to get ready for a potential outbreak within their own borders as soon as possible.

"This virus will show up," he warned at a briefing Tuesday.

"This is going to come soon, potentially. You've got to be shifting to readiness, rapid-response thinking."...

Scientists Discover HIV-Like "Mutation" Which Makes Coronavirus Extremely Infectious

While mainstream scientists continue to perform mental gymnastics to insist that the new coronavirus wasn't man-made, new research from scientists in China and Europe reveal that the disease happens to have an 'HIV-like mutation' which allows it to bind with human cells up to 1,000 times stronger than the Sars virus, according to SCMP.

Recall that at the end of January, a team of Indian scientists wrote in a now-retracted, scandalous paper claiming that the coronavirus may have been genetically engineered to incorporate parts of the HIV genome, writing "This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019- nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature," meaning - it was unlikely to have occurred naturally.

Fast forward to new research by a team from Nankai University, which writes that COV-19 has an 'HIV-like mutation' that  allows it to quickly enter the human body by binding with a receptor called ACE2 on a cell membrane.

According to the report, a follow-up study from a Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhn confirmed Nankai University's findings.

The mutation could not be found in Sars, Mers or Bat-CoVRaTG13, a bat coronavirus that was considered the original source of the new coronavirus with 96 per cent similarity in genes, it said......

ACE2.....no need to mention that this protein has far higher concentrations in Asian vs. European and African cellular tissue....just a coincidence?

You are making no sense here. Evidence that comes without credibility or knowledge and that cannot be demonstrated to be true does not stand just becuase someone says it does. "Pentagon hosted site in Wuhan" -- What are you talking about?

So your definition of overwhelming evidence still includes nothing verifiable, nobody with knowledge or credibility or the required credentials.

When you put up something here expect that it may be criticized and I will not look over clear bs just becuase you ask me to. And the stuff you are posting is bs. I have no idea why you are unable to apply any standard to what you call overwhelming other than screaming that it is over and over.

In a positive sign, Chinese officials reported a drop-off in new coronavirus cases in the central province of Hubei, where the outbreak began. But the virus continues to spread elsewhere in China and in other parts of the world.

In Egypt, health authorities reported 12 new coronavirus cases on a Nile cruise ship.

In the Middle East, both Israel and the Palestinian Authority ordered the closure of Bethlehem Thursday following the diagnosis of the first seven coronavirus cases seen in the West Bank.

Iran ordered nearly 60,000 mosques closed ahead of Friday prayers, as the coronavirus death toll rose to 124. Among the dead was a top Iranian diplomat. Meanwhile, 8% of Iran’s parliament has tested positive for coronavirus.

In France, a member of Parliament was sent to an intensive care unit after testing positive.

And Japan ordered a two-week quarantine for anyone hoping to enter the country from China or South Korea, sparking a diplomatic row.

Coronavirus Cases Surge Worldwide, But True Numbers in U.S. Unknown Due to Lack of Testing

We begin with news on the coronavirus pandemic. The death toll in Italy has soared to at least 366 — with over a third of the deaths recorded within the last day. Authorities have now put around 16 million people on lockdown in the north of the country as they attempt to contain the fast-growing pandemic. All schools nationwide have been ordered closed. Pope Francis delivered his Sunday sermon via live stream after the Vatican acknowledged its first case of coronavirus earlier in the week.

In Saudi Arabia, the east of the country has been put on lockdown, and schools nationwide have been closed. Iran has confirmed at least 49 new deaths on Sunday, bringing its death toll to just under 200. In Quanzhou, China, a hotel that was used as a coronavirus quarantine center collapsed Saturday, killing at least 10 people. It is not known what caused the collapse. Over 106,000 people have confirmed cases of the disease worldwide, with around 3,600 dead.

Here in the United States, there is growing outcry over the Trump administration’s mismanagement of the outbreak and the lack of access to tests. Known cases of coronavirus now exceed 500, with 22 recorded deaths. At least 19 of those deaths have been linked to the Life Care Center of Kirkland, Washington — considered ground zero of the U.S. outbreak on the West Coast. The facility said Saturday 90 out of 180 employees have symptoms of coronavirus.

States including Oregon, Washington, California, Maryland and New York have declared states of emergency. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed the Centers for Disease Control for delays in responding to the outbreak and for not allowing private labs in New York state to test for the coronavirus. Over 100 cases have been identified in New York as of Sunday. Columbia University has canceled classes today and tomorrow after a “member of its community” was exposed to coronavirus. The University of Washington and other Washington-area schools have shifted to online classes. Stanford University in California has also, and Rice University in Texas has also canceled in-person classes.

The Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, said one of its attendees has tested positive for the disease, causing Senator Ted Cruz and Arizona Congressmember Paul Gosar to self-quarantine after interacting with the individual at the conference last month. Three attendees at the AIPAC conference in Washington, D.C., last week have tested positive for coronavirus. Eighteen thousand people attended the conference, including a number of lawmakers. Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were among the speakers.

Meanwhile, low-wage and hourly workers are calling attention to the fact that they are being forced to work even when they are sick, which is directly counter to CDC recommendations for containing coronavirus. On Friday, workers from fast-food chain Chipotle walked out of a New York City restaurant in protest of the company’s practices, which they say puts them, their co-workers and customers at further risk. Millions of workers do not receive paid sick leave.

In Washington state, activists from the Shutdown Northwest Detention Center Coalition are calling for health inspections at the immigrant jail and the release of a plan to help prevent the spread of coronavirus among prisoners and to treat any infected individuals.....

COVID-19: B.C. announces Canada’s first coronavirus death

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the man is one of two people at a North Vancouver care home who was diagnosed with the virus last week.

Henry said the man passed away Sunday night.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and loved ones and also of course to the staff that provided him care, and to his home at the Lynn Valley Care Centre,” Henry said.

Henry said Vancouver Coastal Health officials have been on site at the care home since they learned that a woman who worked at the care centre had been diagnosed with the virus.

She said two additional residents at the home had tested positive for the virus, and that ongoing testing and monitoring of all residents at the facility is underway.

Countries sure are over reacting to something that's not a big deal.

Of course. Itr's a hoax. It was created by the 'left'  and the Democrats. Hasn't anyone listened to the President and his party?

When certain people atttain this, (which in the case of the President, I hope is lethal) tunes will change.

But as a simple aside, I hope the White House gets infested with this disease. Poetic Justice. It would be beautiful.

Really? What are you smoking?

It is a big deal in many ways. 

Medically, it ties up the health systems. Many more people have died of corona virus than the oficial count as hospitals turn away other treatable people becuase they cannot cope.

The people who are at risk who could die -- that too is a big deal. The fact that it hits harder those who have conditions more common in the NA than China should not be missed by you.

Economically this is a rolling disaster. Why do you figure countries have not started quarantining everyone coming in (like Israel is)? Look no further than the economic consequences. How many national airlines will go bankrupt? How many tourism related industries? The general economy is in serious trouble. That alone is a big deal apart form the medical emergency.

Now there are some people being told they should stay hime if sick. Quarantine themselves. Take special measure. It is assumed 35-70% of Canadains will get infected (not all become sick). Some will protect themsevles and stay home and quarantine. 

Those who won't will be called assholes. Right now they are just called lower income people. You know the kind who have roomates. The kind without sick days and money in the bank. The kind who cannot get delivery service from amazon because they are going to find the day old stuff at the store to make it through to the next pay. The kind who have to take the bus when others will safely take their car or an uber.

You have got to be fucking kidding.

It seems left or right -- the trouble with people is that they think their personal experience and situation is universal. 

I laid out the issues for Canada. think about how dangerous this is in most of the world where people are undernourished, have no health care. Yes a problem here we do not have enough ventillator beds. How about the places with none and millions living in close quarters.

Your comment Palladin is as stupid as it is insensitive given the numbers who have died or will die.

Comparing it to the flue is also stupid right wing nonsense. The flue kills more people than this does -- so far only becuase they have not been infected yet. This has a death rate of between 10 and 20 times in the normal population. Let's see how it works in obese North America, poor parts of Africa and the Middle East.

The Coronavirus Pandemic and the Failure of Capitalism

"The proximate cause of the selloff is the growing nervousness and uncertainty over the pandemic and its impact. But the scale of the selloff testifies to the profound fragility of economic conditions in the US and internationally. Twelve years since the 2008 crash, the world financial system stands on the brink of a devastating breakdown. While the basic causes of Monday's selloff are deeper than the global pandemic, the impact of the disease is already enormous. If on or another worst-case scenario were to be realized, the consequences in terms of human life would be absolutely devastating..."

Worker Safety and Using Disinfectants - This is the first of 4 articles on the topic of disinfection I am writing. I have worked in occupational health and safety for 25yrs. This article is about workers who might be involved in large scale use of disinfectants such as what is happening in other countries during this coronavirus outbreak. It is a general article on hazards of disinfectants. The next 3 articles topics are:

  •     look at the definition of words commonly used when talking about disinfection;
  •     discuss the types of chemical disinfectants and the pros and cons of using each;
  •     examine the factors that affect germicidal action.

Considering you're both the Federal Minister of Health AND a representative for Thunder Bay, what are your thoughts on the fact that hand washing is being pushed as the best way to prevent Corona virus, yet many reserves don't have potable running water? The middle of a global pandemic might not be the preferred time to correct the massively racist policy, but better late than never eh? An emergency bill to not only construct new water treatment plants where needed, but also build infrastructure so communities can access water."

Media release: Nova Scotians need paid sick days without the requirement of a doctor’s note

Preparing for cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia, the Halifax Workers’ Action Centre (Halifax-WAC) is calling for paid sick leave for all employees along with legislation to prohibit employers from requesting doctors’ notes to confirm absences due to illness.

“Workers should not have to choose between staying home and losing a day of pay, or going to work sick,” said Jason Edwards, organizer with the Halifax-WAC. “Everyone benefits when sick workers stay home and get well: employers, coworkers, and taxpayers. Encouraging sick workers to stay home is good public policy.”

Currently, Nova Scotia’s Labour Standards Code does not guarantee any paid sick leave to employees, nor is there any statutory regulation around employers requesting medical documentation.

“Requiring workers to obtain medical notes burdens the unwell employee and the medical system,” said Edwards. “Unless an employer has reason to believe that an employee or their family member is not sick or injured, the employer should not be allowed to require a doctor’s note.”.....
