    i saw no topic for this even it takes global dimension

    Death toll increases. Russia send aid

    also conspiracy theories arose as usual in such cases (possible biological weapon)

    The Pandemonium all around seems extremely exaggerated and unwarranted...lets just look at the facts:

    It's officially been 2 months and a maximum numbers of deaths (in China) has risen to 362. In the US during the year (2017-2018) 88,000 people died to the flu virus. 362 deaths total over the past 2 months from the corona virus translates to 181 deaths per month. Lets compare that to 88,000 total flu deaths in the US, divide that number by 12 (for the months in a year) and you have 7,333.3 deaths per month compared to 181 deaths per month. Another factor is population total of the two respective countries (US and China). China has approximately 5 times the population that the US has, that also skews the numbers to a certain degree.

    In short, like the Bird flu, SARS, etc. its impact is grotesquely exaggerated (like everything else) by the media.

    "Simple" flu kills between 290.000 and 650.000 people a year.
    The hot summer in 2004 killed tens of thousands of (mostly old) people in Europe alone.

    This virus is "new". You get viewers and clicks. Ad revenues. Because it isn´t accepted yet as "normal". Let´s say this virus comes back each year and kills some 2.000 - 3.000 people every time, in 10 or even 5 years nobody will be talking about it any more.

    This coronavirus outbreak is worse than SARS.

    Also, this mutation appears to have HIV/SIV features and is amenable to treatment with AIDS drugs. The coronavirus is a retrovirus
    so it is plausible we have seen incorporation of HIV into its genome thanks to the ability of retroviruses to share RNA and DNA fragments with
    their hosts and with other retroviruses.

    In my view a consistent story is coming out in both the AIDS case and this case. A "bush meat" consumption environment has allowed
    an efficient jumping of critical DNA features from species to species. Even though this happens to some extent all the time, the scale of
    the viral evolution is on whole other level under the right conditions.

    BTW, the Chinese do have disgusting eating habits. They mix their animist faith system with their food intake and consume all sorts
    of ridiculous foods like live monkey brains, live rat offspring and assorted other foods that enable rapid viral transmission. Tiger penis anyone?

    I am not so sure, this is just natural outbreak of virus. Years ago I was talking about how a country could hypothetically use biological weapon against enemy. The conditions are that it's own population get vaccinated in secret, either before outbreak. Or after infection by available anti - viral drugs. Then they release the virus. If you look, the statistics of mortality are very strange. No deaths in Anglo countries or Europe.  Or allies of Yank. Apart from so far Italy. Did Italy buy Chinese too much? They were part of belt and road plan of China. But  also deaths in China and Iran........ What is going on?  Are Anglos superhuman? Or did they get vaccine, before biological warfare..... OMG.....

    https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/geographical-distribution-2019-ncov-cases

    Did Yanks and Co do large scale vaccination recently. Why don't they die? Also rate of infection in India and USA very low. Rate of infection in India should be ten times that of Iran. Around 1000. With tens of people dead. But India a market for USA and competitor for China. Same for USA, rate of infection should be about 300. Since much contact with China. Russia very low rate, could be because sub zero. Virus can not survive. But Africa should show much higher.......... The WHO said recently that many outbreaks no known origin in China. This suggests virus outbreaks from independent sources. Targeted........

    The mainstream media was fast to blame chineses which eat bats or snakes, but think about it, they have been eating them for thousent of years and nothing happened until now.

    Most likely is a bioweapon.

    Agree. It is undetectable without symptoms, while being transmitted. Higher kill rate than flu. And as KVS mentioned, looks like it's DNA, is engineered out of existing unrelated diseases. And it looks like the Yanks have stockpiled anti - viral medication to treat this particular strand. That is why they don't die. I remember after 9/11, they said on TV, that they had stockpiled medication in case of chemical or biological or nuclear attack. And they injected their troops with a cocktail of this shit, before sending into Iraq, against Saddam. And as we know CIA also released Anthrax, after 9/11. To blame Saddam and cause panic and help start war against WMD.  So this time they may have gone a little further. I hope Chinese scientists study this RNA, and see where it come from. As you said they have had this diet for long time...... We need biological warfare defence unit in Iran and China... I bet this corona virus is genetic engineered. So that after a few generations, it mutates and becomes inert. This way it is limited in transmission. Only affects limited population. Does not spread to country of origin  easily..........If so we should see a sudden drop in cases, without explanation. Rather than gradual drop.....

    Well normally I would say tinfoil hat theory, but to be honest... it is the sort of thing the Americans and British would do... during the 50s and 60s they drove vans through their own cities releasing flu virus and other things and monitored the local hospitals to determine spread rates and patterns so they could assess the effectiveness of bio weapons on an enemy. Who knows how many of their own people they killed for that information.

    They offered amnesty to Japanese doctors who tested all sorts of bio and chemical weapons on prisoners because they wanted access to the information... ie take 500 prisoners and infect them all with something... after a week kill 10 and do an autopsy to see how the disease has progressed and every week kill 10 more for the duration of the experiment and then kill any remaining to check the progression, or to see why they weren't effected... really nasty stuff as bad as anything the Germans did, but they got away with it.

    The only thing is that if it was a targeted bio weapon I would expect a much higher kill rate... the transmission rate is clearly good enough... perhaps better than most, but its kill rate is too low to be an effective weapon of war... even in peace time.

    It will be great if you could supply link to British experiments. Will make interesting reading. I guess in the second paragraph, you refer to Japan doing experiments on Chinese POW , during occupation. But also that the British granted amnesty in exchange for info.

    The Russians, I believe disbanded bio weapon facility. And chemical weapon facility. After the soviet Union. But I think America is still carrying on with bio weapon programme. Has stockpiles. Why CIA Pompeo interested in virus infection rate in Iran? Did they expect higher rate of infection? Also I am not sure that a bio weapon effectiveness can simply be that it kills. Because it will have low transmission rate. Also an enemy can be more damaged by being forced to look after the sick in hospitals. I think this is the way many weapon designers, design weapons. To injure, rather than to kill. Iranians must develop bio - weapon and bio-defence. If this could have been real attack. And no longer a tin foil hat theory, sadly we need this.

    Even if this virus outbreak is not a bio weapon. Still the mortality rate difference can not easily be explained. Other than existing medications in the west. Medications that do not exist in Iran. Because of the sanctions. Iranians said that they will have to make anti - viral medications to fight corona virus. So whichever way we look at it, we are facing genocide. By dispersing virus or by keeping away medication. The Anglos have not changed much, since they last killed 90 million native American tribes, by distributing blankets, infected with small pox.

    it could but it has no logic

    1. china could respond by the same way and make also a bio-weapon against USA or western countries
    2. the virus is being spread and affects USA also as among other countries

    Western deciders think that the west is so far advanced compared to the rest of the planet that they can get
    away with anything.


    2. the virus is being spread and affects USA also as among other countries

    This is unavoidable. The question is how many millions of Americans will die compared to Chinese. We will only know
    this in the future.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/health/coronavirus-hiv-mutation-suggests-nearly-1000x-more-likely-sars-infect

    That is smoking gun proof of meddling. The corona virus is not as mutation prone as the influenza virus. So it could
    not have mutated enough since Sars to have achieved such a capability. Even the flu does not vector to infinity
    this way.

    Well if the US was going to use a genetic weapon then the Chinese are the clear choice because they are less capable to retaliate than say the Russians would be.

    I am surprised they haven't used a genetic bio engineered weapon against Palestinians... perhaps that is plan B to the deal of the century...


    Isn't it ironic... in the US movies it is the evil AI.... Skynet that attacks the Russians knowing that their retaliation will destroy its human enemies in the west... what irony that it is not machines but the elite 1% that are likely wanting to start a bio war to try and thin the human population on all sides... we will get confirmation when an Indian targeted virus is released...
