China: The deadly coronavirus that has pneumonia-like symptoms has reportedly killed at least 25 people. The Chinese market at the center of the outbreak sold live animals, including wolf pups, foxes, rats, peacocks, crocodiles, giant salamanders, snakes, porcupines and camel meat to eat. The virus may be spread via human-to-human contact, and experts warn of a global pandemic. China locked down nearly 20 million people in two cities at the center of the outbreak, banning planes and trains from leaving in an effort to contain the disease which has already spread to other countries. One case has been reported in the US in Washington state. China’s previous deadly epidemic, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), was linked to people eating civet cats that caught the virus from consuming bats.
One expert said that said the real problem was in people’s behavior, rather than with the animals, and she offered simple advice: the way to prevent such infectious diseases is to “stay away from wildlife, say no to game, avoid their habitats and livestock and farms mixing with wildlife.”
The Chinese market at the center of the deadly coronavirus outbreak sold live animals — including wolf pups, foxes, rats and peacocks — to eat, according to a new report.
The wild animals were among 112 items that were peddled at the Huanan Seafood Market in the central city of Wuhan, Agence France-Press reported.
Other wildlife sold at the market, which has since been shuttered, included crocodiles, giant salamanders, snakes, porcupines and camel meat.
“Freshly slaughtered, frozen and delivered to your door,” said the price list for the vendor, “Wild Game Animal Husbandry for the Masses.”
The disturbing list circulated widely on China’s internet but could not be independently verified by AFP.
Chinese health officials believe the mysterious virus — which has so far killed at least 17 people and sickened hundreds more — originated from “wild animals at the seafood market.”
It has since been confirmed to spread via human-to-human contact, as fears mount that it could become a global pandemic.
The coronavirus, which causes flu-like symptoms, has spread to four other countries, including the US, where a case was detected in Washington state.
The CDC has created a new policy to keep track of Coronavirus deaths that includes any case where the virus “caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” Confirmed lab tests are not required! [Actually, that has been the case all along, but this announcement makes it official policy.]
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is of the same persuasion. He said, “You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards. … We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe.”
The lockdown across most of the US has put labor markets in free fall and forced millions of people out of work – and with that comes hunger. After hunger and loss of utilities, come riots. Then martial law. Do you think those who called the lockdown don’t know this?
The US FDA has approved a new test to detect COVID-19. The blood test detects antibodies to the virus rather than the virus itself. Neither the false positives nor the genuine positives will be a measure of risk but, none the less, they will be used as proof that the ‘deadly’ pandemic is spreading.
Dr. Colleen Smith, who produced a video about mass deaths at Elmhurst Hospital, attended the NYU School of Medicine as a “Simulation Fellow” and gives lectures on medical-crisis simulations, raising the reasonable question whether her video shows a real or simulated event.
The Mises Institute article states: “Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process.” Ron Paul says the pandemic is being used by politicians to spend money with wild abandon and to take away civil liberties.
While police have stopped arresting people for certain crimes, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told citizens that efforts to deal with the pandemic included vigilance against “hate crimes”. Don’t call the police for protection against prowling or theft, but be sure call if you see “hate”.
A major concern is the faulty pandemic computer models used at imperial College in the UK that projected millions of deaths when, in truth, Covid-19 death rates are similar to the common flu. They say the coronavirus is no more dangerous than a bad cold.
Jon Rappoport, who has studied epidemics and pandemics for 35 years, marshals the evidence in this series of podcasts that the Covid-19 pandemic is one of the most colossal deceptions the world has ever seen. This is investigative journalism at its best.
A man living in a smoke shop fired shots after three juveniles wearing masks broke into the store to rob it, and he wounded one of them. The man who fired the shots is in prison now without bail and faces up to 20 years for protecting himself.
The CDC website states, “Among 457 ICU admissions and 1,037 non-ICU hospitalizations, 358 (78%) and 732 (71%), respectively occurred among persons with one or more reported underlying health condition.”
Daniel McAdams says the number of people dying from COVID-19 are very low, yet Anthony Fauci is claiming that 100,000 to 200,000 people are going to die if Trump puts an end to lockdown. Fauci says that, if the president does nothing, two-million people will die.

China threatened its own ally, North Korea, with destroying its nuclear facilities if North Korea’s actions jeopardize northeastern China through “nuclear leakage or pollution”, according to an editorial written in the Global Times, a tabloid owned by the Communist Party. The article was later removed from the Internet.
Yale Environment stated that the foul air of dozens of cities across China contain cocktails of toxic contaminants are unprecedented and cause effects that doctors say are cutting five years off the expected lifespan of half a billion people in northern China.
