  • WHO are completely culpable. They did not declare the pandemic until 11 March when nothing could be done to stop it effectively. They are a mass murder machine.

  • Chinese cover up and not providing access to full data to WHO. China manipulating/ forcing the WHO leadership from announcing the Pandemic alert until it was too late for the whole world from quarantining the virus spread. China must be held accountable for its blunders as well as WHO must introspect for its blatant failure in raising the red flag against Chinese cover up. WHO leadership were complicit in delaying the pandemic alert. China has blood on its hand for killing thousands of innocents all over the world which could have been prevented.

  • There is no pandemic. Coronavirus has been with us for thousands of years . We have all had a flu or cold or pneumonia caused by a strain of Coronavirus. It kills 2% of those who contract it . And they are mostly people over the age of 60. This happens every Winter. It has just been Winter in Wuhan in China . The media are panic merchants & the Chinese government has over reacted . Get out of your apartments and homes and resume life as normal. Go back to work...

I may have found clues that unveil the weakness, new form of transmission, and possible cure to this outbreak. It is still premature and I encourage other researchers to help as well.

  • Don't worry about China, Chaina have it under control, they are experienced and have dealt with pandemics before. The country is also well equipped to deal with this situation efficiently. Mistakes, panic, anger, fear and more deaths are to be expected, because this is not an ideal situation for any society. The fear is not due to getting infected or to spread the virus to other people which is something that the Chinese people are very well educated on how to deal with. But to get access to food and other services that have been disrupted. There are very few countries that can do this as efficiently in the world and USA is also one of them, you could just use your fingers to count how many countries and it's citizens are consciously aware on how to best minimize the disruption. Many other countries will learn the hard way from this one unfortunately and new systems will have to be put in place. But we all hope that this do not become a pandemic because so many countries are not prepared. Being prepared does not mean to just have facilities in place, but a lot more coordination and prepared citizens as well. You could say that China is in the safe zone now and they have it under control,... If they were not prepared, then the casualties would have been in the hundred of thousands by now. In the next 2 weeks we will have to see how it develops in the rest of the world.

  • The death rate is in average 6 %. It varies according to age group between 3% (up to 30 yrs of age) and 8% (+70 yrs old seniors). The virus is transmitted between people without symptoms as well. HK virologist say the incubation period is possibly 28 days not 14 days. In single cases, it was already 42 days but this might be an exemption. There are just max. 10% of required testing kits in China available. The Test is not reliable either. Asian media reports the failure rate is about +40%...also it is Not clear Now much Virus lost is needed to detect the Virus. In Youth Korea were tested 8 eines to finally confirm an infection. Chinese patients who recovered became sick again... After changing criteria for identifying infected people caused peaks in the statistics, China quietly changed methods again back to the former method (based on tests result only) that results in significantly lower figures. Chinas government issued a guideline that orders to release patients after 10 days regardless of their health condition to increase fluctuation and social peace because people are upset not getting hospital support. Die Virus is an opportunity to relocate supply chains för critical go8ds back home, to fight censorship, to protect freedom of media and speech, to free WHO from corruption and to finally improve our healthcare systems. Much more dangerous than Covid-19 are super-virus like censorship, misinformation, greed, selfishness and corruption.
