They keep saying they think it is from bats and people want to eat them because it boosts their immunity. They don't eat them because they are poor, it is a delicacy. They eat all kinds of wild animals it is disgusting.

Today's count is 73,000 confirmed cases.

1,873 deaths.

But, as Chun Chang [Market Watch] pointed out they are winning the war on this because this week the number of new cases dropped from 5090 down to 1886

AND recoveries are up from 1081 to 1701.

They know what they are doing. They have contained the virus successfully and are treating people in the best ways possible. Xi Jinping has down an incredible job.

San Francisco has a state of emergency now.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/san-franciscos-mayor-declared-state-225239441.ht ml


Americans should prepare for significant disruptions if the virus hits their areas? Well you can't say they didn't warn you.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-cdc-warns-americans-prepare-20485784 4.html



Not a question of IF but a question of WHEN per CDC.


"Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said on a call with reporters Tuesday. “We expect we will see community spread in this country,” Messonnier said, referring to person-to-person transmission of the virus. “It is not a matter of if, but a question of when, this will exactly happen.”

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/cdc-warns-broad-disruption-virus-2019192 02.html


In the White House, there has been some discussion about whether to declare a national emergency under the Stafford Act to deal with the coronavirus, two people familiar with the discussions said. It’s one possible tool but hasn’t yet been seriously considered, another person close to the matter said.

The Stafford Act is intended for sudden, urgent emergencies. It would nationalize the response, put the Federal Emergency Management Agency in charge of it and enable access to direct federal assistance and use the disaster relief fund. White House communications staff declined to comment on the possibility.

Comment: Put FEMA in charge? 851 camps available. Oh whippin' post. Why can't they take it as seriously as other countries who close their borders to people from China? The Chins (that's what you call the people from China) are not black, there won't be any black lives matter protesters saying we are persecuting black people not letting more into the country, until/unless the African nations become pandemic and we say, NO people from these countries may not come here. Remember how that went over with Islamic peoples from certain nations when the refugee crisis came about?

This is a very serious time.

This was the prediction from a Harvard epidemiologist.

Harvard University epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch is predicting the coronavirus "will ultimately not be containable" and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity, The Atlantic reports. But don't be too alarmed. Many of those people, Lipsitch clarifies, won't have severe illnesses or even show symptoms at all, which is already the case for many people who have tested positive for the virus.

That's precisely why he doesn't think the virus can be stopped.

https://news.yahoo.com/harvard-scientist-predicts-coronavirus-infect-195800 282.htm


The Atlantic reports Lipsitch is definitely not alone in his prediction. There's an emerging consensus that the outbreak will eventually morph into a new seasonal disease, which, per The Atlantic, could one day turn "cold and flu season" into "cold and flu and COVID-19 season." Read more at The Atlantic.

https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/02/covid-vaccine/607000/

The Harvard epidemiology professor Marc Lipsitch is exacting in his diction, even for an epidemiologist. Twice in our conversation he started to say something, then paused and said, “Actually, let me start again.” So it’s striking when one of the points he wanted to get exactly right was this: “I think the likely outcome is that it will ultimately not be containable.”

On Friday, Chinese scientists reported in the medical journal JAMA an apparent case of asymptomatic spread of the virus, from a patient with a normal chest CT scan. The researchers concluded with stolid understatement that if this finding is not a bizarre abnormality, “the prevention of COVID-19 infection would prove challenging.”


On Saturday, Politico reported that the White House is preparing to ask Congress for $1 billion in emergency funding for a coronavirus response. This request, if it materialized, would come in the same month in which President Donald Trump released a new budget proposal that would cut key elements of pandemic preparedness—funding for the CDC, the NIH, and foreign aid.


COMMENTS: But not everybody will die, like the flu, some will get better, some will not have severe symptoms. The virus can be spread 19 days after someone becomes contagious. The person spreading it may not even be sick or get sick, but others will.

So imagine your subways, busses, trains, planes, boats, any confined space with lots of people some of whom are sick. Two researchers are making masks that will kill the virus. Production is two years away. They found that salt will cut through the molecule so that it cannot remain virulent and infect you. I have their names and contact info. I will stay on top of it.

The virus has been found in Iran. The Deputy Health Minister, Iraj-Harirchio and another person, a member of Parliament, Mahmoud Sadeghi have it.

What would happen here if a congressional member got it or a White House staffer? Would Washington go on lockdown?

First cases reported today in Afghanistan and also Iraq, Kuwait. Bahrain, Oman, Algeria. Croatia, Romania, Spain.

South Korea has 1146 cases, there are reports that the Shin Cheongi Church of Jesus 215,000 members are being tested. They say the church is a cult so they are harassing them singling them out.

Zhong Nanshan who discovered SARS says the incubation period can be up to 24 days for the coronavirus. The bats carry 40 different coronaviruses-

The case in Afghanistan and Pakistan originated in Iran.
12 died 61 infected in Iran. Ground zero there is Qom.

1 confirmed case in Herat.

https://tolonews.com/afghanistan/1-case-coronavirus-14-others-test-negative
3 suspected cases in Farah, Ghor. 15M allocated nationwide to response. Public Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz. “The Ministry of Finance allocated around $15 million to the Ministry of Public Health, while another ten million is in a state of reserve if the unwanted incidents escalate and get out of control,”


http://www.aopnews.com/health/afghanistan-detects-3-suspected-coronavirus-c ases-linked-to-outbreak-in-iran/

Authorities have installed tight monitoring mechanisms at airports, seaports and overland routes for travelers from with neighboring China which hosts around 30,000 Pakistanis, mostly students.

Moreover, some 10,000 Chinese nationals are also based in Pakistan, mostly working on infrastructure development and power plant construction projects that Beijing is funding and building under its global Belt and Road Initiative.

Pakistan confirms two cases.

https://thefrontierpost.com/pakistan-confirms-first-coronavirus-case-in-kar achi/

Yayha Jaffri, 22, has a history of travel to Iran where he is believed to have contracted the virus, according to the Sindh Health Department. He travelled from Iran to Karachi along with his family.


https://www.dawn.com/news/1536792/pakistan-confirms-first-two-cases-of-coro navirus-govt-says-no-need-to-panic

"I can confirm first two cases of coronavirus in Pakistan. Both cases are being taken care of according to clinical standard protocols & both of them are stable," said Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza via a tweet on Wednesday evening. One case in Karachi, Sindh, and one in the tribal areas. The 22-year-old male patient travelled to Iran where he acquired COVID-19, Media Coordinator to the Health and Population Welfare Minister Meeran Yousuf said in a statement, days after Pakistan closed its land border with Iran, where 19 people have died from the virus.

The patient travelled from Iran to Karachi by plane on February 20. He and his family have been placed in quarantine and the Health Dept. is in the process of examining all the passengers that he travelled with, the statement added. Speaking to Dawn NewsTV, Yousuf said the man had started showing symptoms while he was in Iran. His tests were carried out today at the Aga Khan University Hospital which turned out positive.

As you may be aware many of our pharmaceuticals come from China. Here is a list of shortages. How worried should you be? If this virus really does become a pandemic, depends on how countries handle it. Try to find natural ways to deal with your problems.

Don't want to start a panic but part of being prepared is well being prepared. Those of us along the coastlines know during hurricane season it is a good idea to stock up on some non perishable supplies just in case. Well in an epidemic, pandemic, quarantine situation you may not be able to go out for things you normally do. I suggest getting yourself some freeze dried meals, some call them MRE's (meals ready to eat) they are freeze dried, you just re-hydrate them with water and heat them and you have food. Look at some prepper guidelines as to other things you might need and try to secure them just in case of a quarantine near you. The freeze dried food stays good for 25 years.

If the conspiracy theorists revolution comes, or the grid goes down, there is a hurricane, quarantine event you are ready.

There are things happening planet wide, apocalyptic things. Each one in and of itself doesn't disrupt your life, but once some of them get into full swing, things will change. Example, Bahrain has a locust infestation. The locusts eat all the crops, the livestock have nothing to eat, they die, resulting in meat shortages. Our midwest is slated to go thru significant climate change, big droughts are expected. The crops need water. Even if they have water, if locusts come there, no more crops. Edgar Cayce predicted it years ago, he said the heartland of the US would become like the dustbowl of the 1920's and Saskatchewan would be the place tasked with feeding most of the world. If you have a house, put up a greenhouse, if you have land, farm and freeze dry your own food.

There are other horrible things coming, you cannot bear them now, so just do what you can while living your life and for the future plan to get away from the coastlines for the east that means be west of Interstate 81 or be prepared to drown. I don't care if you can swim, or you are a great surfer, could you handle a 300 foot wave? Nuff said for now. If I get info. that an event like that is imminent, yes I will warn you, but be advised it is not IF it is WHEN.

President Trump just put Mike Pence in charge of handling the coronavirus in the US, and Pence will report back to him on it.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/coronavirus-live-updates-47-countries- now-report-infections-and-in-2-cases-source-is-a-mystery/ar-BB10s9IP?li


Pence takes control of national health messaging.

The White House on Thursday directed the government’s health officials and scientists to clear all coronavirus statements and public appearance with the office of Vice President Mike Pence, according to several officials familiar with the new approach.

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, one of the country’s leading experts on viruses and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases, told associates that the White House had instructed him not to say anything else without clearance.

President Trump selected Mr. Pence on Wednesday to coordinate the government’s response to the virus. In turn, Mr. Pence said on Thursday that he had selected Dr. Deborah L. Birx, who directs U.S. efforts against H.I.V. and AIDS, to serve as the Coronavirus Response Coordinator for the White House.

In announcing Mr. Pence’s coronavirus responsibilities, Mr. Trump said, “Mike is going to be in charge, and Mike will report back to me.” Mr. Pence says it will be Ms. Birx. Meanwhile, Alex M. Azar II, the health and human services secretary, remains the chairman of the government’s coronavirus task force — whose meeting Thursday Mr. Pence is scheduled to lead.

The virus can be deadly, but so far, most often isn’t.

The new coronavirus has sown fear and anxiety, with more than 81,000 cases and nearly 3,000 deaths.

LOS ANGELES

Following San Francisco's delcaration, now Orange County has declared a state of emergency due to the coronavirus, reports Fox 11 out of Los Angeles: A Korean Air flight attendant tested positive for the virus while at LAX [airport].

CBS News out of Los Angeles is now reporting a Korean Air flight attendant has tested positive for the coronavirus after working the LAX flight route, spanning “several flights” out of LAX.

Before being diagnosed with the coronavirus, she worked:

– A flight from Tel Aviv, Israel to Seoul, South Korea
– Multiple flights from Seoul to LAX

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/02/26/korean-air-flight-attendant-work ing-lax-flights-diagnosed-with-coronavirus/

The 24-year-old was diagnosed Tuesday in southern Seoul, according to the Korea Joongang Daily newspaper.

The flight attendant had worked flights between LAX and Seoul–Incheon International Airport on Feb. 19 and 20, according to South Korean media outlets.

The woman also serviced a flight from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Seoul on Feb. 15, South Korea’s Center for Disease Control said. She may have contracted the virus from a South Korean church group who were on a pilgrimage to Israel, the Yonghap News Agency reports.

https://www.foxla.com/news/orange-county-officials-declare-local-health-eme rgency-over-coronavirus

More than 8,000 people are currently under self-quarantine in California. Apparently, almost none of them have been tested at all.

https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-24-8000-californians-under-self-quarant ine-for-coronavirus.html

The CDC has only tested 426 people in the entire country, including the 185 from California.

https://thecommonsenseshow.com/conspiracy-economics-health/coronavirus-spre ads-germany-switzerland-croatia-iraq-spain-algeria-austria-and-brazil-while -cases


Coronavirus spreads to Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Iraq, Spain, Algeria, Austria and Brazil while cases explode in Italy by 45% in one day. An infection is now suspected in Brazil, which would make it the first South American nation to confirm a coronavirus infection, bringing the virus to a whole new continent. According to Brazil’s Health Ministry, one test of a local patient has reportedly come back positive. A second confirmation test is necessary to make the diagnosis “official.”


COMMENTS: We are entering the apocalypse that's what's going on. Plagues is one of the punishments to come on the earth. The corona virus may not be so bad right now. 18 months, next flu season is another matter.

FRIDAY 2-28-20 Mexico has confirmed two coronavirus cases.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/02/mexico-confirms-cases-coronavirus-20 0228134156264.html

Mexico's government said on Friday it had detected the first cases of coronavirus infection in two men who had recently travelled to Italy, making the country the second in Latin America to register the virus.

A 35-year-old man who showed positive in an initial test in Mexico City went through a second test that turned up positive results early on Friday, Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell Ramirez told reporters.

His case is connected to the second case in the northern state of Sinaloa, Lopez-Gatell told a news conference alongside President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.


COMMENT: He is in the northern state of Sinaloa, where the Guzman drug cartel operates. If any of the people who process the drugs that come to the US are infected, you can have quite a problem in a short amount of time. In addition, any of those migrants who want to cross the border can also become infected bringing it with them across the border.

Meanwhile, the Dominican Republic refused to allow a cruise ship headed towards the island to dock at its port amid worries over the virus.

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines said in an emailed statement that it had reported "a small number of influenza-like cases on board. Our medical team has now advised that they are all feeling better. No guests or crew are, or have been, displaying symptoms that are considered to be consistent with those of coronavirus."

An Israeli company, MIGAL, has a vaccine for the coronavirus. It will be ready in 90 days to achieve the safety approvals for use. Guess where the company is. GALILEE. There's more. They had been researching something else when they hit the breakthrough AND it happened after a massive group of people prayed at the wailing wall.

Chen Katz is the leader of the biotech team. David Zigdan is their CEO.

Https://churchleaders.com/news/371701-israel-coronavirus-vaccine.html

They did an interview in Jerusalem Post also.

The company has a Facebook page at migal.research

Selenium Deficiencies and Coronavirus

https://www.zrtlab.com/blog/archive/preventing-and-protecting-against-coron avirus-is-selenium-the-answer/?fbclid=IwAR2VGxbt161b-GZPOFhKY4qmrW9ok2E5F-3 klkp5l0hEhb4nDSpHGJBLBMY


https://www.fasebj.org/doi/abs/10.1096/fj.00-0721fje

CONCLUSIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE
The data presented here demonstrate that a dietary deficiency of the nutritionally essential trace element Se increases the lung pathology caused by the influenza virus in mice. Under our conditions, mice fed a diet adequate in Se develop only a relatively mild inflammatory response when infected with influenza A/Bangkok/1/79. However, the inflammation is much more severe in Se-deprived mice. The increased severity of the inflammation is reflected in the increased number of inflammatory cells obtained by BAL as well as the higher pathology score.

These results complement earlier research that showed that Se deficiency induced myocarditis in mice infected with a benign strain of Coxsackie virus. Work by others has indicated that supplementation with Se may be of some benefit in individuals infected with HIV. Taken together, these studies emphasize the general importance of good nutrition in fighting infections and suggest that Se may be of particular benefit against a variety of viral diseases.


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6769590/
Selenium deficiency, which is the main regulator of selenoprotein expression, has been associated with the pathogenicity of several viruses. In addition, several selenoprotein members, including glutathione peroxidases (GPX), thioredoxin reductases (TXNRD) seemed important in different models of viral replication


The recommended daily intake of selenium in adults is between 50 and 70 micrograms per day.


https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12011-011-8977-1

Influenza virus-laden sneeze &#8594; Healthy, Se-adequate host inhales influenza virus &#8594; Virus infects lung epithelium &#8594; Induces ROS (inflammation) &#8594; Chemoattracts GPx1 &#8594; Stimulates host proinflammatory chemokines &#8594; Induces dendritic cell activity, including polypeptide C1q [7] &#8594; Primes viral antigen-specific T cells &#8594; &#8593; anti-inflammatory interferon-gamma (IFN-&#947 and antibody immunoglobulin G (IgG) neutralization of viral antigen &#8594; inhibits virus replication and clears virus from host.


Your average Doctor gets SIX hours in nutrition in medical school. Take your health into your own hands. Get educated, get decent food and nutrients or supplement it.

Vaccines Updates

https://www.precisionvaccinations.com/vaccines/coronavirus-vaccines

Coronaviruses without preventive vaccines are the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV), and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease in humans.

As of February 29, 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved any preventive or therapeutic vaccines for use against the SARS, MERS or the SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses.

Coronavirus Vaccine Candidates Conducting Human Clinical Trials:
INO-4700 MERS-CoV is a DNA plasmid vaccine that expresses the MERS CoV spike (S) glycoprotein. Inovio expects to advance INO-4700 into a Phase 2 field study in the Middle East and Africa where outbreaks have been observed, with full funding from CEPI. On January 6, 2020, the company says this is the most advanced vaccine candidate for MERS. The Wistar Institute announced January 23, 2019, that they are part of the Inovio team. Wistar brings the experience and suitability of its DNA technology platform to rapidly translate a vaccine against an emerging virus.

GLS-5300 MERS-CoV Vaccine - The GLS-5300 MERS-CoV product is a DNA vaccine candidate, which allows for rapid design and production in response to emerging infectious diseases. Underscoring the potential for rapid deployment of DNA vaccines, GLS-5300 was advanced into the clinic within nine months of preclinical vaccine candidate selection. GLS-5300 was co-developed by GeneOne Life Science Inc. and Inovio

Pharmaceuticals. GLS-5300 is administered intramuscularly using the CELLECTRA® delivery device. A July 24, 2019, Phase 1 first-in-human clinical trial. Initial findings from the trial were published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

ChAdOx1 MERS-CoV Vaccine - ChAdOx1 MERS is a vaccine candidate to treat Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). The ChAdOx1 MERS vaccine consists of the replication-deficient simian adenovirus vector ChAdOx1, containing the MERS Spike protein antigen. The first-in-human trial is now being conducted in Oxford in UK healthy adult volunteers. The vaccine will be administered intramuscularly. This is an open-label, dose-escalation phase 1b trial to assess the safety and immunogenicity of the candidate ChAdOx1 MERS vaccine in healthy Middle Eastern adult volunteers aged 18-50.

MVA MERS (Modified Vaccinia virus Ankara) is a vaccine candidate that contains the full-length spike gene of MERS-CoV. MVA MERS vaccines are produced with tPA, but either the mH5 or F11 promoter driving expression of the spike gene. In this phase I first-in-human clinical trial, healthy volunteers in two different dose cohorts will be vaccinated twice with the candidate vaccine MVA-MERS-S. A subgroup will additionally receive a late booster vaccination. A second phase 1b study is a two-center study in approximately 160 healthy adults aged 18-55 years. The study is to assess the safety and immunogenicity of MVA-MERS-S_DF-1. The study is not yet recruiting.

SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development News: February 2020

February 28, 2020 - Altimmune, Inc. announced the advancement of a novel single-dose, intranasal vaccine using Altimmune’s proprietary technology to protect against COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Altimmune has completed the design and synthesis of the vaccine and is now advancing it toward animal testing and manufacturing.

February 27, 2020 - Generex Receives Contract from Chinese Partners to Develop a COVID-19 Vaccine Using Ii-Key Peptide Vaccines. The vaccine candidate could be available for human clinical trials within 90 days. “Our subsidiary NuGenerex Immuno-Oncology has developed Ii-Key peptide vaccines against several potentially pandemic viruses, including bird flu, swine, flu, HIV and a previous coronavirus, SARS.

February 27, 2020 - MIGAL’s researchers announced they have developed an effective vaccine against avian coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV), to be adopted soon and create a human vaccine against COVID-19 disease. Dr. Chen Katz, MIGAL’s Biotechnology Group Leader, commented, “The scientific framework for the vaccine is based on a new protein expression vector, which forms and secretes a chimeric soluble protein that delivers the viral antigen into mucosal tissues by self-activated endocytosis (a cellular process in which substances are brought into a cell by surrounding the material with cell membrane, forming a vesicle containing the ingested material), causing the body to form antibodies against the virus. In pre-clinical (IN-VIVO) trials, MIGAL’s researchers have demonstrated that the oral vaccination induces high-levels of specific anti-IBV antibodies.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/scientists-create-atomic-scale-map-224805438 .html

Governments around the world have been using quarantines to reduce the spread of the virus, and health officials are using the best virus-fighting treatments they have on hand. But longer-term, researchers are racing to develop vaccines and other types of antiviral treatments that are specific to COVID-19. That’s where the 3-D map, published today by the journal Science, comes into play.

UW’s Institute for Protein Design has been at the forefront of protein engineering to fight disease. The institute’s technique looks at the 3-D structure of proteins, and then creates molecular “locks” and “keys” that fit onto those proteins — either to facilitate a molecular interaction or gum up the works and head off an interaction.
For COVID-19, the institute is looking for ways to gum up the works.

Researchers at the institute has already reported some success in developing a “Flu Glue” that binds itself to a protein on the outer coat of an influenza virus known as hemagglutinin or influenza HA. The newly released map could help them create similar mini-proteins for COVID-19. Institute director David Baker said the authors of the Science study have already emailed him the coordinates for the COVID-19 map.

The bulk of the research was done by the study’s principal authors, Daniel Wrapp and Nianshuang Wang of UT-Austin. Just two weeks after receiving the genome sequence of the virus from Chinese researchers, the team designed and produced samples of their stabilized spike protein. It took another 12 days to reconstruct the 3-D protein map and send the research to Science. One of the key technologies behind the effort is cryogenic electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, which makes it possible to produce 3-D models of cellular structures, molecules and viruses. UT-Austin has a state-of-the-art cryo-EM facility at its Sauer Structural Biology Laboratory.

“We ended up being the first ones in part due to the infrastructure at the Sauer Lab,” McLellan said. “It highlights the importance of funding basic research facilities.” In addition to facilitating the development of vaccines and synthetic antiviral mini-proteins, the 3-D map could help researchers come up with ways to isolate naturally occurring antibodies from COVID-19 patients who survive the disease. Like the mini-proteins, those antibodies could be used to treat an infection soon after exposure.


Authors of the study published by Science, “Cryo-EM Structure of the 2019-nCoV Spike in the Prefusion Conformation,” include Wrapp, Wang and McLellan as well as Kizzmekia Corbett, Jory Goldsmith, Ching-Lin Hsieh, Olubukola Abiona and Barney Graham.

Chuck Schumer is leading the fight to make sure NY gets FEMA money for Coronavirus.

https://www.rollcall.com/2020/03/02/road-ahead-emergency-funding-deal-for-c oronavirus-expected/

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/senator-schumer-proposes-248-billio n-bipartisan-plan-for-coronavirus-funding/ar-BB10DTLP

Senator Schumer proposed an 8.5 billion plan and he expects that the final agreed-upon number will be close to $8 billion. "Within the next week we'll be able to do our own testing and we're working with the proper authorities," said Dr. Dwayne Breining, Executive Director, Northwell Health Labs.

The hospital says they've already spent $5 million in preparation of having to test for the coronavirus in the Long Island area.


REMARKS: They KNOW it is just a matter of time. With over 11 million living in NYC, I don't know how many on Long Island, I think it is 3 or more million, and commuting, once it hits, it will spread.

NYC Doctor has to plead to get test kits.
https://nypost.com/2020/03/02/nyc-doctor-has-to-plead-with-health-dept-to-t est-for-coronavirus/

“I still have to make my case, plead to test people. This is not good. We know that there are 88 cases in the United States. There are going to be hundreds by [the] middle of the week. There’s going to be thousands by next week. And this is a testing issue.”

McCarthy said the 39-year-old Manhattan woman who tested positive after returning from Iran “is only the 32nd test we’ve done in this state.”

“That is a national scandal,” he said.

“We’ve seen one case in New York, [but] I’ll bet there are hundreds,” he added. “I’ll bet there are thousands in the United States. The longer we wait to get testing up and running, the worse this is going to be.”

USPS confirmed a woman who works at a package sorting facility in Federal Way, Wash., tested positive. She is recovering at home and the facility is being cleaned. The USPS said the woman would have had interactions and contact with her fellow employees but would not have handled packages that are sent to customers.


COMMENTS: What if she was a carrier infecting hundreds of people along her route? This is an example of how this thing can spread from places you would not even think about. Anyone, anywhere can be infected and spread it to countless others.

Dr. Deena Grayson predicts a surge in cases in the next three weeks.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/us-doctor-predicts-massive-surge-172012985.html

Dr. Dena Grayson issued a warning on Twitter that the United States could be facing a "massive surge" in coronavirus cases. COVID-19 will impact "every single state, very likely and very very soon," she predicted.



https://twitter.com/burgessct/status/1234274878326329344


REMARKS: Reportedly the price to test for COVID-19, the coronavirus is $3500. Who pays for this? How can insurers absorb the costs if massive amounts of people get sick? What about people with big co-pay/deductibles under our current health care system?

If you self quarantine, who pays for your lost wages, how do your bills get paid?

South Korea tests 65000! UK tests 8000! USA tests 500?? We ALL found out about the virus at the same time. Incompetence or coverup?

Pence is in charge of handling coronavirus, does he have an answer for this?

He went to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he said he was placed in a closed-off room. Nurses in protective white suits sprayed some kind of disinfectant smoke under the door before entering, Azcue said. Then hospital staff members told him he’d need a CT scan to screen for coronavirus, but Azcue said he asked for a flu test first.

“This will be out of my pocket,” Azcue, who has a very limited insurance plan, recalled saying. “Let’s start with the blood test, and if I test positive, just discharge me.”

But two weeks later, Azcue got unwelcome news in the form of a notice from his insurance company about a claim for $3,270.

Hospital officials at Jackson told the Miami Herald that, based on his insurance, Azcue would only be responsible for $1,400 of that bill, but Azcue said he heard from his insurer that he would also have to provide additional documentation: three years of medical records to prove that the flu he got didn’t relate to a preexisting condition.

How can they expect normal citizens to contribute to eliminating the potential risk of person-to-person spread if hospitals are waiting to charge us $3,270 for a simple blood test and a nasal swab?” he said.

[People will not go get tested, they will just tough it out and infect other people. They cannot afford the costs associated with getting tested or quarantined].

In the US, more than 90 people have tested positive for coronavirus and two people have died, as of Monday.

THE NUMBERS
The latest figures from Johns Hopkins University show more than 96,000 reported cases of the coronavirus in at least 70 countries, with more than 3,300 deaths globally. So far, more than 53,000 people have recovered.


TRUMP THINKS PEOPLE WITH CORONAVIRUS WHO DO NOT HAVE IT REALLY BADLY CAN GO TO WORK. (what about spreading it to other people who will get it and not have such a mild outcome? Maybe our President needs some clarity).

Trump says people with coronavirus can still go to work.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2020/03/05/cdc-says-do-not-go-work-trump- says-thousands-coronavirus-could-go-work-and-get

"A lot of people will have this and it's very mild. They'll get better very rapidly," Trump told Fox's Sean Hannity. "They don't even see a doctor, they don't even call a doctor. You never hear about those people."
"So you can't put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this corona flu and/or virus," Trump continued. "So you just can't do that. So, if, you know, we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work. Some of them go to work, but they get better."

• New modeling from The Australian National University looks at seven scenarios of how the outbreak might affect the world's wealth, ranging from low severity to high severity.

• In the low-severity model — or best-case scenario of the seven — ANU researchers estimate a global GDP loss of $2.4 trillion, with an estimated death toll of 15 million. [Professor McKibbons modelling of the economic impact of the 2002 – 2003 SARS and 2006 flu pandemics].

The findings provide important information about a range of possible economic costs of the disease in 20 countries and four regions, including the OECD and Asia. The paper examines six economic sectors including manufacturing, energy and mining.

In a high-severity scenario, the estimate
ed loss to GDP in Australia in 2020 is $US103 billion, with many deaths.

Under the same scenario, the global economic outlook is dire:

• China’s loss to GDP in 2020 is estimated at $US1.6 trillion.
• In the United States, the figure is $US1.7 trillion.
• Japan’s estimated loss to GDP is $US549 billion.
• In India loss to GDP in 2020 is estimated at $US567 billion.

Roche could not be immediately reached for comment. The firm said on Monday it donated 14 million yuan ($2.02 million) worth of Actemra during February.


REMARKS: Best case scenario 15 million deaths. That is staggering. The situation in the southern hemisphere will worsen soon because their seasons are in reverse of ours. So as we start spring, they start winter and the virus thrives in the cold.

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Gary Peters, Ranking Member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, today urged the Trump Administration to launch a centralized federal website – “Coronavirus.gov” – to provide trusted information to the American people about the Coronavirus outbreak. In a letter addressed to Vice President Mike Pence, who has been appointed to lead the U.S. response to the epidemic, Peters argued that challenges finding clear, reliable information about the virus could contribute to its continued spread and undermine public health. Peters personally delivered the letter to the Vice President at a Coronavirus briefing for Senators in the Senate this afternoon.

“I have heard from public health and safety professionals in Michigan that the flood of mixed messaging and misinformation circulating about the Coronavirus has undermined the government’s ability to communicate effectively with the American people,” said Senator Peters. “That’s why I’m calling on the Trump Administration to launch Coronavirus.gov. A centralized website would allow the federal government to deliver timely, trusted, and much-needed guidance to public health officials, health care providers, and the public to better contain the spread of Coronavirus in Michigan and across the country.”
