Coronavirus – The African Connection

 

The three main areas of Chinese business in Africa are transport, which generally means building airports and railways; energy which means building power stations; and grids and metals which means mines.

One of the airports the Chinese funded and built is Bole International Airport in Ethiopia.

The flights from China arriving at Bole International come from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Hong Kong.  Just yesterday the Chinese government added China’s 5th largest city Guangzhou to its list of locked down quarantined cities.  Which strikes me as news.  For Guangzhou to have been quarantined means it must already have a large number of cases.  Guangzhou is not near to Wuhan, the source of the Corona virus outbreak. It is near to Hong Kong.

 

It is linked to both by high speed rail and internal air travel. Guangzhou airport is in fact the  third busiest in China and the 13th busiest in the world handling over 65 million passengers per year.

So… the spread of the  Corona virus in Guangzhou has got so serious that the Chinese government has quarantined it. Yet till now flights from there to Ethiopia were running. Of course I have no idea how many passengers were actually on those flights nor where they might have originated from.  But the rail and air links from Wuhan and other cities to Guangzhou and the fact that Guangzhou is therefore the hub to which any workers going to Africa would have passed through, does raise a few questions. Remember, 1500 per day on average (meaning in ‘normal times’ which these are not) through Bole international from China alone.

Beijing Under Partial Lock Down As Virus Death Toll Tops 900; More Than 40,000 Infected

Sun, 02/09/2020 - 13:10

 

 

 

Summary:

  • *Virus death toll hits 902, vastly surpassing all of  SARS (813) in only three weeks

  • *The number of global confirmed cases hits 40,553 in China (40,171) and offshore (382)

  • *WHO Director-General warns "we may only be seeing the tip of the iceberg"

  • *Exiled Chinese billionaire says true death toll closer to 50k, 1.5 million infected

  • *New cases confirmed in UK, Spain, Singapore

  • *Passengers aboard 'Diamond Princess' warn authorities aren't doing enough to protect them - and others

  • *Officials in Shenzen say they won't block Foxxconn factory reopening

  • *Cruise ship quarantined in Hong Kong allowed to leave after 4 days

Update (2240ET): And so the epidemic reaches China's capital Beijing. As gnews reports, as the coronavirus spreads from Wuhan, China has been implementing “closed management” by putting 80 cities under lockdown, and on Monday, Beijing authorities also issued a “Strict Closed Management of Residential Communities” in an epidemic prevention and control announcement (link here). It is an official declaration that Beijing, the country’s capital city of China, is now under lockdown.

WHO has settled on a designation.   Covid-19

 

ok, not very catchy,,, but easy to write/read/pronounce.

 

so many mixed messages on this, but sure looks like extraordinary response to the flu......   

 

*common flu which they say kills/infects many times more, gets no attention.  Yet Covid-19 gets China darn near lock-down?   oh well,,, I guess time will tell...

diverdude1:

The “Co” stands for corona, “vi” for virus and “d” for disease. The WHO appended it with “-19” to demarcate 2019 as the year it was first recognized in humans.

All those clueless hacks who warned us for years not to trust China's economic numbers, yet were so gullible to believe any coronavirus pandemic "data" released by Beijing are going to look pretty stupid right about now.

Hubei just released its latest round of coronavirus outbreak figures, and in a clear confirmation of the 'conspiracy theory' that China had altered the way it was reporting Covid-19 deaths and cases - clearly in order to suggest that things were improving and you should go back to work, while ideally buying stocks, the province at the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic just came clean and the numbers are stunning.

The number of cases exploded by 14,840, resulting in a total of 48,206 cases, including 13,332 clinically diagnose cases:

Yeah, despite it is a blog site, I 'measured' Zero posts any NEWS first. Sometimes they do c&p from other sources, but that happened rarely.

It was much better website in the past ... it changed few years ago.

I am there (my 1st am read) longer than 20 years.

5-6 articles per page on Corona ... if you look for nCoV-19 news/stats, one must head to Zero, first.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
