Q: NYC is an epicentre ...

More than 70 million Americans on the lock-down. In CA, they call it 'shelter in place' ... 'Ground Stop' i.e. no departures declared at all NY airports ..

Italy had 793 deaths today or over 5000 casualties since the outbreak. Spain's numbers are not much lower ...


These are some titles at ZeroHedge ...


Here is one I'll open it wide ... while I am listening to Vivaldi:


China 'Inexcusably' Hid Information About Coronavirus And Should Admit Their Wrongdoing

China lied, people died timeline ...



While China may have finally tamped down coronavirus to manageable levels within their borders, the fact remains that they initially lied about the virus while actively suppressing early information that may have saved countless lives, according to Dr. Michael Pillsbury, Director for Chinese Strategy at the Hudson Institute and adviser to President Trump.


"Everybody who wants to can just go online and look at January 14th - the WHO website. You'll see the WHO say 'China says there is no human-to-human transmission,'" said Pullsbury.

"Now that was not true. They already knew there was human transmission. And the next day, 20 Chinese came in the White House - with President Trump, Henry Kissinger, Lou Dobbs, myself, we all saw the Chinese up close. Some of them could have been carrying it," he added.

Pillsbury then discussed the case of Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang - the whilstleblower who posted on WeChat about the new disease, only to be prosecuted by the government before later dying of the virus. Beijing is now pretending he was never punished for speaking out, and is now lionizing him as a hero.


Last week, Axios published a timeline of China's lies and cover-ups regarding COVID-19 which fit perfectly with Dr. Pullsbury's comments:

A study published in March indicated that if Chinese authorities had acted three weeks earlier than they did, the number of coronavirus cases could have been reduced by 95% and its geographic spread limited.

This timeline, compiled from information reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the South China Morning Post and other sources, shows that China's cover-up and the delay in serious measures to contain the virus lasted about three weeks.

Dec. 10: Wei Guixian, one of the earliest known coronavirus patients, starts feeling ill.

Dec. 16: Patient admitted to Wuhan Central Hospital with infection in both lungs but resistant to anti-flu drugs. Staff later learned he worked at a wildlife market connected to the outbreak.


Dec. 27: Wuhan health officials are told that a new coronavirus is causing the illness.

Dec. 30:

*Ai Fen, a top director at Wuhan Central Hospital, posts information on WeChat about the new virus. She was reprimanded for doing so and told not to spread information about it.

*Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang also shares information on WeChat about the new SARS-like virus. He is called in for questioning shortly afterward.

*Wuhan health commission notifies hospitals of a “pneumonia of unclear cause” and orders them to report any related information.

Dec. 31:

*Wuhan health officials confirm 27 cases of illness and close a market they think is related to the virus' spread.

*China tells the World Health Organization’s China office about the cases of an unknown illness.

Jan. 1: Wuhan Public Security Bureau brings in for questioning eight doctors who had posted information about the illness on WeChat.

*An official at the Hubei Provincial Health Commission orders labs, which had already determined that the novel virus was similar to SARS, to stop testing samples and to destroy existing samples.

Jan. 2: Chinese researchers map the new coronavirus' complete genetic information. This information is not made public until Jan. 9.


Jan. 7: Xi Jinping becomes involved in the response.

Jan. 9: China announces it has mapped the coronavirus genome.

Jan. 11–17: Important prescheduled CCP meeting held in Wuhan. During that time, the Wuhan Health Commission insists there are no new cases.

Jan. 13: First coronavirus case reported in Thailand, the first known case outside China.

Jan. 14: WHO announces Chinese authorities have seen "no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus."

Jan. 15: The patient who becomes the first confirmed U.S. case leaves Wuhan and arrives in the U.S., carrying the coronavirus.

Jan. 18:

*The Wuhan Health Commission announces four new cases.

*Annual Wuhan Lunar New Year banquet. Tens of thousands of people gathered for a potluck.

Jan. 19: Beijing sends epidemiologists to Wuhan.

Jan. 20:

*The first case announced in South Korea.

*Zhong Nanshan, a top Chinese doctor who is helping to coordinate the coronavirus response, announces the virus can be passed between people.

Jan. 21:

*The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms the first coronavirus case in the United States.

*CCP flagship newspaper People’s Daily mentions the coronavirus epidemic and Xi's actions to fight it for the first time.

*China's top political commission in charge of law and order warns that “anyone who deliberately delays and hides the reporting of [virus] cases out of his or her own self-interest will be nailed on the pillar of shame for eternity."

Jan. 23: Wuhan and three other cities are put on lockdown. Right around this time, approximately 5 million people leave the city without being screened for the illness.

Jan. 24–30: China celebrates the Lunar New Year holiday. Hundreds of millions of people are in transit around the country as they visit relatives.

Jan. 24: China extends the lockdown to cover 36 million people and starts to rapidly build a new hospital in Wuhan. From this point, very strict measures continue to be implemented around the country for the rest of the epidemic.



The bottom line: China is now trying to create a narrative that it's an example of how to handle this crisis when in fact its early actions led to the virus spreading around the globe.

Yep, China covered it up and caused a massive problem, there's no excusing that.


But, the world has known since January that this was a very real threat and pretty much ignored / downplayed the threat. And now here we are.


I'm not defending China's actions at all here but politicians blaming China for the situation they're now in - when they basically did nothing even after they knew what the situation was - is just scapegoating and passing the buck.

Italy Goes Full "Wuhan", Orders Most Restrictive Lockdown Yet, As Global Case Total Passes 300k: Live Updates Summary:

  • *Massive surge in number of deaths and cases in UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, and France

    *New York, New Jersey deaths, cases accelerate

    *Italy goes under full lockdown

    *NY Gov Cuomo: "months, not weeks" to control virus

    *Ukraine declares total quarantine

    *Belgium sees 25% jump in cases

    *Saudi Arabia reports 10% spike

    *German gov't ends years of fiscal restraint with 365 billion euro aid package

    *NYC airspace closed after positive Air Traffic Controller test

    *NJ declares full state lockdown; "will take action" for people not following precautions

    *FDA authorizes first 45-minute COVID-19 test

    *US Fiscal Aid package around $2 trillion (10% of GDP), Kudlow

    *Officials increasingly calling for the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics


Update (1835ET): Even after threatening Italians in some areas with serious criminal penalties for violating their stringent quarantine orders, it seems Italy's coronavirus containment efforts have failed.


After reporting another shocking jump in deaths, the Italian government has gone full "Wuhan", ordering a shutdown of industrial production.

In a speech delivered just before midnight on Saturday in Rome, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced that he is ordering ALL non-essential businesses to be closed, and for Italians to stay home.

These measures are slightly more restrictive than the current measures, which allow Italians more freedom to move about their towns and communities. They will also likely result in a much larger economic hit, as Italy's industrial stalwarts are forced to pause operation.


And just like that, an entire country - 60 million Italians - is now under 'shelter in place.'

Elsewhere, as Middle Eastern countries escalate their crackdowns, Kuwait announced that it would start imposing a curfew between 5pm and 4am due to what the government called “non-compliance with Ministry of Health’s instructions to stay indoors." Meanwhile, the UAE has closed beaches and parks for two weeks.

As the number of confirmed cases in Europe and North America soar, the total global case total has surpassed 300k on Saturday.

Finally, an interesting snippet from the FT: Researchers on multiple continents say an usual symptom has emerged in the majority of Covid-19 patients: a loss of the sense of smell.

We're going into lockdown here, the whole country. They're (we're) hoping to head off an Italian like scenario.

US Reports 500+ Casualties In 'Deadliest Day Yet', Confirms Largest Jump In New COVID-19 Cases: Live Updates

Tue, 03/31/2020 - 07:08


  • *US reports more than 500 deaths for first time
  • *US confirms largest one-day case jump
  • *Russia reports jump in cases, deaths
  • *Maryland, Virginia and DC all locked down
  • *Thailand warns it will prosecute all "April Fools Day" coronavirus jokers
  • *China plans to announce "asymptomatic" carriers of the novel coronavirus
  • *Dr. Fauci warns he fears virus will return this fall
  • *Ford, GE warn 100-day window for producing 50k ventilators doesn't start until April 20
  • *Spain reports third straight 'deadliest day yet;'
  • *Orban takes unilateral power in Hungary

On Monday, it was America's turn, as the US reported more than 500 deaths for the first time, according to reports published early Tuesday.

But it's not just that: The US has recorded the biggest daily jump in new cases of any country since the novel coronavirus first made the jump from animal to human (or...whatever) in Wuhan back in December. Even as the overall percentage rate slowed, the US still added more than 20,000 cases on Monday, with its daily rate slowing to 14% from 16%, per the FT. Monday also marked the first time that the US reported more than 500 deaths from COVID-19 in a single day, according to the Washington Post.

Worldwide, 61,404 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the global total to 786,876, while the death toll increased by 3,723 to 37,839, on track to double in less than a week.

Most of the new cases reported in the US yesterday - cases and deaths, that is - happened in New York. In a tribute to medical workers battling the virus on the front lines, the Empire State Building flashed red and white on Monday night to symbolize "America’s heartbeat," lighting up the top of the iconic building.

Here We Go Again: China Puts Entire County On Lockdown After New Corona Cluster Emerges

Wed, 04/01/2020 - 12:47

China is no longer fixed.

Having lied for the past two months about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, eager to convey the message that the crisis "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, and willing to work their asses off (with Beijing so generously willing to risk everyone's lives as the alternative is a complete collapse in China's economy), earlier today the US finally cracked down on the relentless barage of Chinese lies, when US intelligence accused China of deliberately lying about its coronavirus figures.

Then, in a miraculous coincidence, just moments later Reuters reported that a county in central China's Henan province announced on Wednesday it had "virtually banned all outbound movement of people, following several cases of coronavirus infection in the area."

According to a post on its social media account, Jia county - which has a population of about 600,000 - said that no one can travel out of Jia county without proper authorization. Additionally, residents are not allowed to leave their homes for work unless they have clearance to do so.

how to make a mask, very useful, I have ordered mask from the island no one talks about and got DHL to Atlanta, got 100 yesterday for 150 dollars shipping.


Any mask can do it, as I understand with some cotton cloth on mouth. I just have regular wood sanding mask which is not too tied to my face.

Even scarf is recommended here in EU.

I feel lucky I don't need to use public transport anymore like in Istanbul.


Fok it, you got to die of sumtin' ...

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
