Here’s a Thursday early morning upgrade. We’re likely on the cusp of an abrupt turn for the even worse, beginning in a city with a population of over 20 million …
( Silver Physicians Editors) Here’s a round-up of some of the most recent Covid-19 news.
CNN has blasted the news back to its web page:
There are some interesting things coming out of CNN to report.
First, among the main points from CNN is that the variety of cases spiked due to the fact that the meaning of what makes up a case was broadened.
Broadened definition: The spike in numbers is partially down to a wider definition of what constitutes a verified case, to consist of people detected on the basis of their symptoms rather than screening favorable.
Why does this matter?
Well, there appears to be some video games being had fun with the method the “main” number is calculated, which many individuals do not trust as being the real number of contaminated individuals.
For instance, simply 2 days back Absolutely no Hedge was reporting that China had actually narrowed its meaning of what made up a case of coronavirus infection.:
As reported by local media this morning, the Chinese National Health Commission silently altered its definition of Coronavirus “validated case” in the latest standard dated 7/2. As a result, going forward clients who checked favorable for the virus however have no symptoms will no longer be considered as verified. As Alex Lam observes, “this inevitably will reduce the numbers.”
So 2 days back, a favorable test without signs was not a verified case, although today an individual is confirmed to have the infection based on symptom and not a positive test.
Translation: An individual can be confirmed to have the infection if they are symptomatic but have not been checked.
Tin foil hat translation: The regime can identify anyone as symptomatic in one method or another, so in essence, the government can take any action versus anyone it wishes to, all under the pretense of “public health”.
Remarkably, some in the MSM are still calling this coronavirus like the flu.
For instance, here’s an update from Reuters this morning:
Health officials in China’s main province of Hubei said 242 individuals had died from the flu-like infection on Wednesday, the fastest rise in the day-to-day count given that the pathogen was identified in December.
Many professionals consisting of Chris Martenson have repeatedly said to not describe this as the influenza because the contrast can not be made like that, in part since this is a brand name brand-new infection with no previous herd (i.e. human) resistance.
Here’s a screenshot of the latest Johns Hopkins real-time tracker:
Curiously, there are still NO cases anywhere in Africa or in Latin America.
If this virus actually does spread super-easy, as they say, then you would think that there would be a surge of cases all around the world today, including Latin America?
Particularly when we see stuff like this coming out of CNN this morning:
Cab driver in Japan tests favorable for coronavirus
From reporter Isaac Yee in Hong Kong
A cab driver in the Japanese capital Tokyo has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Japanese state broadcaster NHK reported on Thursday.
According to NHK, the cab driver stated he had driven one client that appeared to be Chinese. Japan’s health ministry is currently investigating how the cabby was infected.
Japan now has a total of 248 validated cases of the coronavirus, consisting of 219 cases from the Princess Diamond cruise ship.
A Taxi driver in Japan tests favorable, however oddly enough, there’s not much info about it anywhere you look, and wouldn’t the general public like to know more?
Here’s all the reporting you’ll get, however, this time from Reuters(this is the ENTIRE article):
TOKYO (Reuters)– A male Japanese cabby in Tokyo has actually tested positive for the coronavirus, NHK television reported on Thursday.
The chauffeur had had passengers who seemed Chinese, NHK added, pricing quote the Health Ministry.
Extremely few details are offered about the cabby or his story, although this is a “public health emergency”.
Keep that in mind, and then consider something that was reported 10 DAYS AGO (Feb 3rd) from the BBC( bold included for emphasis):
Uber has actually suspended hundreds of customer accounts in Mexico, after finding two of its motorists had actually carried a traveler contaminated with coronavirus.
The company stated it had actually suspended 240 passenger accounts, in addition to the 2 drivers, simply in case the chauffeurs had contracted the virus and passed it on.
It said none had established any symptoms, however it would continue to keep track of the scenario.
The impacted guests will not be able to use Uber for two weeks.
Mexico’s Ministry of Health said a passenger “of Chinese origin” had taken a flight from Los Angeles to Mexico City on 20 January.
The guy then visited tourist attractions, museums and shops in Mexico City, for two days.
He started feeling ill on the night of 21 January, and the next day took an Uber back to the airport.
When he showed up back in the United States he was checked positive for coronavirus.
At present, there have actually been no validated coronavirus infections in Mexico.
Nevertheless, it can take about 2 weeks for symptoms to develop.
Uber said it had suspended the chauffeurs and the 240 travelers who had actually remained in their vehicles after the infected guest, as a precaution.
It stated it had also sent them info about where to get health care details.
Mexico’s Ministry of Health stated it was keeping an eye on the circumstance.
It stated officers had actually likewise visited the Hilton Mexico City Reforma hotel, where the infected guy had actually remained, to check on personnel.
It warned that the man would have been infectious, however no hotel staff have actually established symptoms yet.
Is it too far of a stretch to state we’re about to see a huge surge in cases in Mexico soon, starting with the very capital of Mexico, Mexico City, where there is a densely packed population of over 20,000,000 people?
This individual of “Chinese origin” was at Tourist destinations in Mexico on January 20 th, and according to my math, that’s 24 days earlier!
Editor’s Note: To this day, the Secretary of Health in Mexico has no travel constraints to China, nor quarantine treatments in location:
