The more scientists study this new coronavirus, the more alarming it becomes. When this outbreak arose, officials told us it was very unlikely that it could be transmitted from human to human. When it was shown that this was obviously incorrect, officials began to assert that the transmission from person to person would be "limited" as we saw during the SARS epidemic. Of course, that was also completely incorrect, and now we know that this new coronavirus actually spreads like a forest fire among human populations, and that is because it is so different from the SARS virus. In fact, new research by scientists at the University of Texas at Austin discovered that this coronavirus "It is up to 20 times more likely to bind to human cell receptors"…
The deadly new coronavirus is up to 20 times more likely to bind to human cell receptors and cause infection than severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars), according to a new study by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin.
The new coronavirus and Sars share the same functional receptor of the host cell, called angiotensin 2 converting enzyme (ACE2).
According to this new study, the "high affinity of 2019-nCoV S for human ACE2 can contribute to the apparent ease with which 2019-nCoV can spread from human to human," and that statement should definitely cause a chill in the spine.
The speed with which this virus spreads has been absolutely surprising, and the latest numbers we have indicate that it has a reproduction rate that is almost unprecedented. The following comes from Natural news…
The reproduction rate (R0) of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19), that is, the number of other people to whom an infected person could spread it, has steadily increased in recent months. At first, it was in the range 1.0-2.0. Then, change as high as 6.6. Now him latest science He says we have breached 7.05.
What this means is that an infected person could transmit Wuhan's coronavirus (CoVid-19) to seven other people, who could then transmit it to seven other people. In other words, an infected person infects another seven people, who then collectively infect another 49 people, who then infect another 343 people, who then infect 2,401 people, and so on.
And even if you get this virus and finally recover, there is a chance that you can get it again pretty fast…
Li QinGyuan, director of pneumonia prevention and treatment at China Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing, said a protective antibody is generated in infected people.
"However, in certain individuals, the antibody cannot last as long," Li said. "For many patients who have been cured, there is a chance of relapse."
Needless to say, all the information I just shared with you is really bad news.
This is an extremely dangerous virus, and the potential for a horrible global pandemic is definitely there.
But Chinese President Xi Jinping insists that the outbreak is slowing in his country and that his government "You are witnessing positive changes"…
Xi said "the battle has reached a crucial moment" and China had "mobilized the entire country and adopted the most complete, rigorous and comprehensive prevention and control measures," Xinhua said.
"Thanks to those hard efforts, the situation is witnessing positive changes," Xi said.
Hopefully you are right, but at this point there is a lot of skepticism about the official numbers that leave China. In fact, even the white house He has expressed skepticism about numbers.
It would definitely be good news if the Chinese were really controlling this outbreak, but if that is the case, why did they simply bring 40 industrial incinerators in Wuhan? …
According to reports, China has deployed 40 industrial incinerators at the epicenter of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.
Chinese media reports that the furnaces have been sent to the city amid constant fears that the death toll is being covered up.
NTD reports that the cabins are for the disposal of animal carcasses, while China Ship news reports that the incinerators are for medical waste.
We know that funerals have been banned in the affected areas and that the government requires that all bodies be burned.
And we also know that the bodies have accumulated in the crematoriums in Wuhan even though they have been burning bodies 24 hours a day.
So, are these industrial incinerators being brought to help burn the accumulation of dead bodies?
We do not know, but that is what many people suspect.
Meanwhile, this outbreak continues to increase worldwide. Just a few hours ago, we learned that the number of confirmed cases in South Korea has risen to 46…
The number of coronavirus cases in South Korea increased to 46 on Wednesday, after 15 new cases were reported, including a group of nearly a dozen focused on the city of Daegu in the southeast.
Of the new cases, 13 were in Daegu and in neighboring North Gyeongsang Province, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of Korea (KCDC) said, and it was believed that eleven were linked to a single patient, a woman 61 years old
And I was quite surprised to know that Iran has reported two deaths due to the coronavirus …
The 2 Iranians who reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 have died, according to several foreign media reports cited by Reuters.
As we reported earlier, a spokesman for the health ministry said both cases were found and isolated in the city of Qom, where the two were treated in quarantine. It was said that their conditions were relatively stable before.
There are very few areas of the world that have not yet been affected, and the number of cases outside of China continues to increase at an exponential rate.
Here in the United States, the number of confirmed cases is still quite low, but the secret with which some officials are dealing with this outbreak is quite curious. The following example comes from Natural news…
According to Tampa Bay times, "State health officials say they can't reveal how many people have been tested for the virus … State surgeon Scott Rivkees said the Florida Department of Health is not authorized to publish the number of people in the state that they are being tested for privacy concerns virus. "
But that is a lie.
Publication aggregate numbers Without any personally identifiable information, it does not violate any laws or regulations related to personal health privacy.
Hopefully those officials are being too protective and not trying to hide something.
Because the American people deserve the truth, and they I have not always been understanding during this crisis
I still hope that President Trump is right and that this outbreak will begin to fade once winter ends and warmer temperatures arrive. But all the scientific research that has been carried out so far indicates that it is an extremely dangerous virus, and we should all take this outbreak very seriously.
