There has been an alarming surge in the number of infections and deaths from the coronavirus that causes the illness named by scientists as COVID-19. Health officials are getting increasingly worried. The number of infections worldwide shot up to 60,000 after some 15,000 new cases were reported in just one day. Japan has reported its first death from the virus. And over 250 deaths were recorded on Wednesday alone in the Chinese province of Hubei, the epicenter of the outbreak. EU health ministers met in Brussels for talks on Europe's response to the virus. DW spoke with German Health Minister Jens Spahn.

This is the elites agenda. In china they have so many people they can only have 1 baby per family. Its rules because they are over populated. Population control is the only way they can keep the earth fully balanced. So they created this virus and is spreading it everywhere

Welcome the World of Biological weapons, they take a while to get going but, once released into a major population it can really get deep rooted. Especially when the government that owns the weapons lab in Wuhan doesn't want any information released or help in controlling the situation. And with the WHO owning the other lab out of the two they don't want blame pointed their way either. This did not start with bat soup!🤔

Easily solved. Everybody in the whole world stay home for two weeks, the incubation period. We could have a world wide Buffy Marathon. 7 seasons, half a season a day. Quarantine any family who gets a sniffle in that period. You would eliminate a bunch of other diseases also. Ok, im glossing over some complexities but if the situation is not bad enough to spend two weeks trapped with your family, it is probably not time to panic yet.

Canada has lost about 3000 people to the flu this year, what is everyone so afraid of, China loses about 250,000 to the flu every year, this doesn't sound so bad, sounds more like martial law, they are cracking down on dissidents and are making it look like an epidemic, people are wearing masks to hide their faces from the facial recognition in their 5 g network that are in all the cities to implement their social credit system.

I am afraid to say this but this is what I have heard the coronavirus was a lethal bacteria that was released in a lab was China ready to launch this on us. I hope not but I know China is upset with us because Trump said we could stand on our own two feet we did not need China goods this would not surprise me as why China kept this so secret were they trying to launch this on the United States.

My simple question is that, in past 17 years, how the new unknown viruses are coming out? How it is possible? We know the epidemics broke out in human history. But how it is possible in very short span, new kind of killing viruses that could be spread out? Human are eating everything in thousands and thousands of years. Pointing out at animal is unacceptable. What may be real fact? What is behind this kind of epidemics in short period of times?

We're living in a world of smart things. Everything is getting smart even for viruses and diseases. And how smart are we humans?! We already know that the COVID-19 doesn't immediately show symptoms once they infected a human. And I believe this virus has a sleep/ hibernate mode and it attacks once they had multiplied to a certain amount or has crossed border to another human and also when it is attacked back by an antigen, it can become dormant for a certain amount of time before coming back into attack mode. For those whom we deem cured should be quarantine for about 30 days days and go through a detoxification programme

In the USA we have already DNA sequenced the disease is half of the aids virus DNA , the DNA is not normal the Corona virus is w weapon china created the DNA info is online, the USA said there is a bio weapons factory located in Wuhan, The USA says China was trying to create a weapon and it got out of control, the whole thing is created by CHINA !!! The USA is saying you deal with the problem you created ,the USA said its not our problem and I agree 3000. If you get the disease you will die no cure could be days or weeks, there are videos of the government checking for fever if you got the disease there online videos the china government burning bodies in the street, only a few people get cured

Dear Xi Jinping, California has 8 cases of the virus. If it spreads, I would not blame China. I would blame Governor Newsom, Dianne Feinstein and other goverment officials who ignore the poor conditions of tens of thousands of homeless Americans. Please, I beg you to tell them to clean up the homeless camps and stop enabling drug use.

I want to see the race of people outside of China that are infected. There is lots of speculation about the coronavirus being a man made race specific pathogen. Are the infected people outside of China people of Chinese decent or other races? That will at least tell us that the virus IS race specific. Was it an accidental release, or seeded in China by outside forces? I read that Israel released the virus in China, and also another new virus just found in Africa. I just want to know the truth and am not trying to blame anyone. I also read that there is speculation that the CIA released it as well, so I want to know the truth, not speculation.

A Sudden 15k jump (for positive cases) supplied by the Chinese Government looks like a *phantom number* and it ONLY make sense IF the gradient for positive cases are steeper *after* the day where CT scanning test method was introduced. CCP Claims: 1) The use of *CT scanners* which are big bulky expensive high powered magnet and 2) also said *test result* can done within few hours using CT scanners. Calculations using *exaggerated scenario* : - London have 300 hospitals for 9m people and in Wuhan with population of 11m = 367 hospitals (assuming Wuhan is as rich as London) - Assume each hospitals in Wuhan own 10x CT scanners and can test 2 hours per patient (very generous figure & Overly exaggerated) meaning they can test 12 patients (per 24h period) x 3670 scanners available = 44040 tested patients per day theoretical max. (for both positive & negative cases). 15000 (positive case) / 44040 = 34% (positive vs negative ratio). This 34% ratio could also applies to whole of Wuhan population of 11m people = 3'850'000 positive cases (max potentially in Wuhan) -15000 (already tested positive) = 3'835'000 awaiting to test positive in Wuhan. So if Wuhan can test 44040 patients within 24 hours using this new CT scan method and so you should see a *surge of positive patients* (steeper gradient) after the day when CT scanning technique was introduced for at least 87 days (3835000 / 44040), assuming ONLY positive potential people cuing up awaiting for CT scans. See the problem here? Even if you manually adjust the positive vs negative ratio to 1% (instead of 34%) i.e. 15'000 positive cases / 15'000 scan per day (where no negatives were selected for testing). Which still means 1% of positive cases for whole of 11m population in Wuhan = 110'000 of positive patients, then you should still see a *surge of positive cases* after the day CT scanning technique was introduced i.e. *steeper gradient of positive cases than before the day CT scan was introduced* . So the 15'000 positive cases from the Chinese Officials is highly questionable (for now). The only explanation why Chinese Officials are adding 15k *phantom* positive cases is to lower the *fatality ratio* i.e. people who got positive VS people who then die from it. Because the fatality ratio (positive vs death ratio) was 2.0% then risen to 2.5% just a day before CCP introduced 15000 phantom positive cases (speculative), which drop back down to 2.2% (as of 13th Feb) For reference: SARS *fatality ratio* = 9.56% (774 deaths vs 8096 positive cases) COVID 19 *fatality ratio* = 2.1% (as of 14th Feb, i.e. if the number can be trusted supplied by the CCP)

Oh, and this is why you diversify your imports and why production can't be centralized to one country like it so heavily is with China. It's the exact same reason why so many countries diversified their energy sources to reduce reliance on middle eastern or venezuelan oil...because disruption chances are high and when it happens, supply is put in peril.

China is accepting medical aid and has appealed to the World for supplies, so let's just knock that bit of anti-Chinese rubbish on the head right now. Co-operation NOT confrontation is what is needed right now from Boris the Brexit and Trump the Buffon. Both populist politicians care more about consolidation of there power base and UK/USA first and screw the rest of the World than the millions of people this pandemic is about to cause. And YES I call this a Pandemic as the 1st case in Africa is now confirmed. Just wait until the World finds out what is going on in Indonesia, Burma and Malaya!
