I also saw some of that paper. Extremely important to understand and determine if this is accurate. No way in hell this was natural if this is true.

This was from the comment section in ZH. This also shows numbers that may be leaked "more accurate" numbers. 154,023 confirmed and 24,589 dead.

The Chinese supply chain is totally fvcked if the stats in this Tencent article and congruent numbers in my above cited article are correct.
Death rates from study:
  1. 15% for Asian males
  2. 7.5% for Asian females
  3. 3% for Black or White males
  4. 1.5% for Black or White females
With a population of 1.5 billion, potentially 112 million males and 56 million females could die. If a total of 168 million Chinese were to die in a matter of months, it would lead to an industrial and political collapse.

Voodoo -- As time passes, we are getting more info that pretty well fits your post above.

This here C&P -- Does put an official number on the cured. And it does point out that the death rate using their numbers is over 50%.

And while the number of cured cases was only 269, well below the official number that day of 300, most ominously, the death toll listed was 24,589, vastly higher than the 300 officially listed that day.


269/300 cured. 300 dead. Even with the Chicom bullshit numbers... you get a huge death rate.

This doctor puts out a short video analysis each day on the corona virus. From a medical professional view, he breaks it down easy to understand. Says the Washington State patient (first in USA) was treated with Ebola drugs and responded well to them. He is discharged to home isolation.

This is VERY interesting.

IF this virus is a genetically modified (weaponized) lab creation (including the genese of HIV...
IF the release of this virus was not accidental...
… in Wuhan (travel hub for all of China)
… at the busiest travel time of the year (lunar new year)
Since it primarily attacks Asian males...

Can we postulate that this event is actually genocide masquerading as a "natural" event? Is it possibly a pogrom ordered by Xi to reduce the male population in China? Is it possible that a vaccine has already been delivered to those who are politically connected in China?
That is very possible...

There is another possibility to consider too though...

What if the CIA - under the direction of Trump - genetically modified this virus to attack Chinese males as a means to hamstring China from its ascendency (both economically as well as militarily)?

I can see both your and my hypothesis as at least plausible...

Figuring out what is really true will be much harder.

It ain't over until its over! But nCoV may never end.
Yep, this is just a new cold virus, but one that has a decent chance of killing you.
Now every cold and flu season will suck even more.
....amd we should call it the WuFlu. Rolls off the tongue easier than nCoV. Lol

I'm not going to be infected; I chomp down on organic garlic regularly, drink horehound, mate, peppermint and other teas. A friend who I thought is a serious health fan said it tasted like dishwater to him. No flu vaccine for me, however I may bite the bullet and get a tetanus shot. I have seen too many people stricken by health conditions due to big Pharma and the "wonderful" doctors! Leeches!

From the DOJ press release below:

"Lieber became a “Strategic Scientist” at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from in or about 2012 to 2017."

Wuhan is ground zero for the Coronavirus.

Do you believe in coincidences?


Department of Justice

Office of Public Affairs

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

Harvard University Professor and Two Chinese Nationals Charged in Three Separate China Related Cases

The Department of Justice announced today that the Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department and two Chinese nationals have been charged in connection with aiding the People’s Republic of China.
Dr. Charles Lieber, 60, Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, was arrested this morning and charged by criminal complaint with one count of making a materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statement. Lieber will appear this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler in federal court in Boston, Massachusetts.
Yanqing Ye, 29, a Chinese national, was charged in an indictment today with one count each of visa fraud, making false statements, acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy. Ye is currently in China.
Zaosong Zheng, 30, a Chinese national, was arrested on Dec. 10, 2019, at Boston’s Logan International Airport and charged by criminal complaint with attempting to smuggle 21 vials of biological research to China. On Jan. 21, 2020, Zheng was indicted on one count of smuggling goods from the United States and one count of making false, fictitious or fraudulent statements. He has been detained since Dec. 30, 2019.
Dr. Charles Lieber
According to court documents, since 2008, Dr. Lieber who has served as the Principal Investigator of the Lieber Research Group at Harvard University, which specialized in the area of nanoscience, has received more than $15,000,000 in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DOD). These grants require the disclosure of significant foreign financial conflicts of interest, including financial support from foreign governments or foreign entities. Unbeknownst to Harvard University beginning in 2011, Lieber became a “Strategic Scientist” at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from in or about 2012 to 2017. China’s Thousand Talents Plan is one of the most prominent Chinese Talent recruit plans that are designed to attract, recruit, and cultivate high-level scientific talent in furtherance of China’s scientific development, economic prosperity and national security. These talent programs seek to lure Chinese overseas talent and foreign experts to bring their knowledge and experience to China and reward individuals for stealing proprietary information. Under the terms of Lieber’s three-year Thousand Talents contract, WUT paid Lieber $50,000 USD per month, living expenses of up to 1,000,000 Chinese Yuan (approximately $158,000 USD at the time) and awarded him more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at WUT. In return, Lieber was obligated to work for WUT “not less than nine months a year” by “declaring international cooperation projects, cultivating young teachers and Ph.D. students, organizing international conference, applying for patents and publishing articles in the name of” WUT.
The complaint alleges that in 2018 and 2019, Lieber lied about his involvement in the Thousand Talents Plan and affiliation with WUT. On or about, April 24, 2018, during an interview with investigators, Lieber stated that he was never asked to participate in the Thousand Talents Program, but he “wasn’t sure” how China categorized him. In November 2018, NIH inquired of Harvard whether Lieber had failed to disclose his then-suspected relationship with WUT and China’s Thousand Talents Plan. Lieber caused Harvard to falsely tell NIH that Lieber “had no formal association with WUT” after 2012, that “WUT continued to falsely exaggerate” his involvement with WUT in subsequent years, and that Lieber “is not and has never been a participant in” China’s Thousand Talents Plan.
Yanqing Ye
According to the indictment, Ye is a Lieutenant of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China and member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). On her J-1 visa application, Ye falsely identified herself as a “student” and lied about her ongoing military service at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), a top military academy directed by the CCP. It is further alleged that while studying at Boston University’s (BU) Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering from October 2017 to April 2019, Ye continued to work as a PLA Lieutenant completing numerous assignments from PLA officers such as conducting research, assessing U.S. military websites and sending U.S. documents and information to China.
According to court documents, on April 20, 2019, federal officers interviewed Ye at Boston’s Logan International Airport. During the interview, it is alleged that Ye falsely claimed that she had minimal contact with two NUDT professors who were high-ranking PLA officers. However, a search of Ye’s electronic devices demonstrated that at the direction of one NUDT professor, who was a PLA Colonel, Ye had accessed U.S. military websites, researched U.S. military projects and compiled information for the PLA on two U.S. scientists with expertise in robotics and computer science. Furthermore, a review of a WeChat conversation revealed that Ye and the other PLA official from NUDT were collaborating on a research paper about a risk assessment model designed to decipher data for military applications. During the interview, Ye admitted that she held the rank of Lieutenant in the PLA and admitted she was a member of the CCP.
Zaosong Zheng
In August 2018, Zheng entered the United States on a J-1 visa and conducted cancer-cell research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston from Sept. 4, 2018, to Dec. 9, 2019. It is alleged that on Dec. 9, 2019, Zheng stole 21 vials of biological research and attempted to smuggle them out of the United States aboard a flight destined for China. Federal officers at Logan Airport discovered the vials hidden in a sock inside one of Zheng’s bags, and not properly packaged. It is alleged that initially, Zheng lied to officers about the contents of his luggage, but later admitted he had stolen the vials from a lab at Beth Israel. Zheng stated that he intended to bring the vials to China to use them to conduct research in his own laboratory and publish the results under his own name.
The charge of making false, fictitious and fraudulent statements provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of visa fraud provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of acting as an agent of a foreign government provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of conspiracy provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of smuggling goods from the United States provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Field Division Joseph R. Bonavolonta; Michael Denning, Director of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Boston Field Office; Leigh-Alistair Barzey, Special Agent in Charge of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, Northeast Field Office; Philip Coyne, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General; and William Higgins, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Export Enforcement, Boston Field Office made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorneys B. Stephanie Siegmann, Jason Casey and Benjamin Tolkoff of Lelling’s National Security Unit are prosecuting these cases with the assistance of trial attorneys William Mackie and David Aaron at the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.
The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
These case are part of the Department of Justice’s China Initiative, which reflects the strategic priority of countering Chinese national security threats and reinforces the President’s overall national security strategy. In addition to identifying and prosecuting those engaged in trade secret theft, hacking and economic espionage, the initiative will increase efforts to protect our critical infrastructure against external threats including foreign direct investment, supply chain threats and the foreign agents seeking to influence the American public and policymakers without proper registration.

Its interesting to note on the John Hopkins data map that Indonesia is reporting nothing.
Indonesia admitted they were waiting for test kits in order to confirm suspected cases.
Suspect there are other third world countries in the same boat. Not enough available test kits, like not enough respirator masks, China is using most of them.

Hong Kong is in SHTF mode as the border is now completely closed off to China. China is where they get a lot of their goods from (toilet paper) and now there are empty shelves. People are hoarding and stores are limiting purchases.

The Cruise Ship that is moored in Japan already has over 60 plus cases all infected from one initial person. This virus is incredibly contagious. Rest of the passengers are quarantined for at least another 2 weeks.

Here are several info sites.
All is not well and I wish to hear or see or read more so that I could choose direction beyond regular flu and potential societal mass confusion reaction.
We will know soon enough, but how about some speed trading info equivalent for us people in the trenches ?
Best to all... and be a GIM2 donator, at least in your will...
Chris Martenson said China has closed ports... that is immense.

Seen a couple of theories that think the virus is more contagious to Asians and males. That can be logically explained ATM.

It started in Asia where there are a billion Asians.

Other logic about males is in China over 50% of the men smoke while only 2 % of women do. Smoking weakens the immune system.

Woman faces death penalty after being veiled
According to the state news agency, police in China have arrested a woman who has been in contact with a woman “Intentionally veiled” a person from an area affected by the corona virus. The 36 -year-old woman is in custody in the northern community of Tianjin. There are initially no details of whether or when she will be released.

First person in the USA just died.
This one? Actually someone on US soil?

"Few details about the American, who died on Thursday, were immediately available. According to the United States Embassy in Beijing, the person was 60 years old and died at Jinyintan Hospital in Wuhan, the inland metropolis at the center of the epidemic. Two people familiar with the matter said the person was a woman and had underlying health conditions."

It will happen eventually but I don't believe it's happened yet. When it does, the sheepish Americans will tie a yellow ribbon around their old oak trees then all hunker down under their beds in fear and anguish. It's what we do when the boggie man cometh!

Considering that China has about 1.5 billion people...and that many (most) of those people live in very dense urban cities...and how contagious this virus seems to be...it would make sense to me that at least a 1/4 to a 1/3 of the entire Chinese population will contract this virus.

If that is the case - that would translate somewhere around 400-500 million people. And thats just China.

And with a death rate around 25% - that would be around 100-125 million dead in the next little while. Not exactly a rounding error. And I think I am underestimating both the infection rate of the population as a whole - as well as the expected death rate because they simply dont have the medical facilities/drugs to effectively treat that number of sick people...which means the death rate will probably be much higher.

I think it is safe to assume that the cat is out of the bag so to speak. This thing is gonna be a global pandemic - even here in the US.

How long until the ENTIRE country of China is on lockdown? And for how long?

Global supply chains grind to a halt. Factories shutter. Workers are laid off. Unemployment claims go through the roof. People hunker down out of fear - no one goes out to eat...or to a concert, etc...

Considering the extreme leverage existing in our financial system - it wouldnt take but a month or 2 for the whole shebang to go BOOM...

Might that bring about martial law? Unless I am wrong in my assumptions - I think its a certainty. Remember those FEMA camps with the plastic coffins? We might soon find out if that was really a thing...

And if people are all hunkered down at home - and have only about $500 in savings - how are they gonna survive?

Will landlords evict them? Will banks foreclose on their mortgages? Repo their cars?

Would Trump issue a force majeure and essentially freeze all payments for all companies/employees? Essentially put the financial system in a state of suspended animation...or hibernation if that metaphor works better. That might address the payments side, but it doesnt address the fact that for millions and millions of people - they are broke and it also doesnt address the supply chains necessary to feed the US citizenry...

Behold the pale horse...

Speaking of force majeure, the gas tankers are piling up in China's ports and they are unable to handle all the shipments because of lower demand as a result of all the shutdowns. China shutting down much more will sent the global supply chain into turmoil.

https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/gasmaggedon-sweeps-over-global-energy-market

snip: China’s state-owned gas importers are considering declaring force majeure on LNG imports, which would amplify the turmoil in global gas markets.

Shipments of oil and gas are backing up at Chinese ports, which is creating ripple effects across the world. Now, Chinese state-owned CNOOC is considering declaring force majeure on its LNG import commitments, according to the FT. Sinopec and CNPC are also apparently considering the move.

Data from http://windy.com shows a massive release of sulfur dioxide gas from the outskirts of Wuhan, commonly associated with the burning of organic matters. Levels are elevated, even compared with the rest of China.

Data like that would support the 20K plus dead that are now being cremated 24x7.

Another nail in the Chinese government credibility. Like there was any,

Well, we all seem to agree that the Chicom gummint was fudging numbers.

Now, the Chicom gummint has declared numbers that even if bullshit-low, are damning for us all:

811 dead, 2649 recovered.

That is a 30.6% DEATH RATE.

We all agree?

Your math looks Ok, but I am not so sure about your data. Johns Hopkins is the most reputable site I know about, and they update the data often each day. Their latest shows 814 dead and 2920 recovered. Dividing 814 by (814+2920) is 21.8%.

Look on the left side of the link above to see lots of confirmed cases in Australia, Germany, USA, etc. Most of those cases may have contracted nCoV from traveling Chinese, but most of the sick people there are not Asian.

Well, we all seem to agree that the Chicom gummint was fudging numbers.

Now, the Chicom gummint has declared numbers that even if bullshit-low, are damning for us all:

811 dead, 2649 recovered.

That is a 30.6% DEATH RATE.

We all agree?
Sorry Walt, but I just checked your math and found it is not correct. Using your data and dividing 811 by (811+2649) is a death rate of 23.4%.

See the post above but the Chi Coms let the truth out trying to brag how it's not that bad.:bombs 8:

They claimed that only 82% get a mild response. However of the rest who see a severe or critical case almost all of those are dying. This is close to the 15-17% death rate. That was also the prediction of paper published on Lancet.
