If you have followed the breadcrumbs, you will realise the Communist Chinese government has not been transparent in providing factual details about the Wuhan coronavirus. When they first realised they had the strain, how it spreads, how it infects, and — importantly — how lethal and widespread the virus has been.
We have learnt that China’s response to the virus was merely a story of cover-ups and suppression of truth. Now the latest is that things are ‘much better’ — infection and death rates have plummeted and the people are back to work.
As noted by Zero Hedge on Wednesday, the government lifted its quarantine and ordered people back to work too soon; now the Communist government apparently has a second virus outbreak on its hands:
Having lied for the past two months about the severity and the extent of [the] coronavirus pandemic which started in Wuhan, eager to convey the message that the crisis [is] “under control” just so people return to work, full of hope and enthusiasm, rejoicing at the surge in China’s just as fabricated PMI numbers … earlier today the US finally cracked down on the relentless barrage of Chinese lies, when US intelligence accused China of deliberately lying about its coronavirus figures.
No sooner than the accusation was made public, Reuters reported that a county in central China’s Henan province coincidentally announced that it had “virtually banned outbound movement of people, following several cases of coronavirus infection in the area.”
No surprise here…
According to a post on the Jia county social media site, home to about 600,000 people, announced that no one was permitted to travel out of the county without the proper authorization. Also, residents are not permitted to leave their places of residence for work unless they are cleared to do so by government officials.
Would you say this may just be a problem?
Zero Hedge noted that local media reports said that Henan Province broke its 30-day streak of reporting no new COVID-19 cases on March 29, announcing that one person tested positive following a trip to Pingdingshan, where Jia County is located.
Well then, the coronavirus remains alive and well in China, though Beijing has reported that the government had everything under control. This could become a greater risk, because the risk of stop-start restrictions on people’s movements translate into a period where further infections could have been spread. China will soon be forced to go through the entire shut down exercise all over again,” Zero Hedge reported.
Bloomberg’s Simon Flint noted overnight Tuesday that “as China’s economy restarts, there is every risk infection rates [will] tick higher once again, requiring renewed control measures and potentially the beginning of a stop-start pattern of lockdowns” followed by easing of restrictions.
Now, multiply that over the number of countries dealing with this Chinese-made virus and you can quickly understand how utterly devastating this is going to be on the world for some time to come. So what is our suggestion, practice social distancing until we have the all-clear, build you immunity with mega-doses of vitamin C, eat healthy (all the colours of the fruit and veg family), get some moderate exercise and sleep enough (min 7.3 hours daily).
