Beijing and Shanghai LOCKED-DOWN as Coronavirus Spreads Uncontrolled

Beijing and Shanghai LOCKED-DOWN as Coronavirus Spreads Uncontrolled
23 Comments

After Beijing announced it was going into lockdown to try and contain the Wuhan virus on Sunday (Feb. 9), Shanghai on Monday (Feb. 10) followed suit and said it is also implementing "closed-off management" measures for communities in the city.

On Monday morning, the Shanghai city government announced that "closed community management" has been implemented in the metropolis' 13,000 residential complexes. It added that most of these communities have also implemented tight restrictions on entering and exiting their facilities.

Shanghai is *** not *** back at work today. While there are more people around than last week most shops remain shuttered and the roads are empty. 

Shanghai joins three other top tier Chinese cities that have gone into lockdown mode, including Beijing, Tianjin, and Chongqing. According to CCTV News, the Shanghai Municipal People's Government held a news conference on the prevention and control of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) at the Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention (SCDC). During the press conference, Zhu Qinhao, director-general of the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau, confirmed that most of the city's 13,000 residential communities had implemented the "closed community management" measures and entrance and exit restrictions.

Zhu said that the measures include strict controls over those coming and going and that those who enter must register and have their temperature checked. If someone's body temperature is found to be abnormal, local authorities must be notified, and the person in question will be examined by medical personnel.

The incubation period for the coronavirus could be longer than expected: a patient in Central China's Henan, with no symptoms for 17 days, was diagnosed as an infected patient.

Chinese National Health Commission has changed their definition of WuhanCoronavirus "confirmed case" in their latest guidelines dated February 7. Patients tested positive for the virus but have no symptoms will no longer be regarded as confirmed.  

 

Propaganda and efforts at slight of hand reached new heights over the weekend. The true extent of the situation has been kept quiet outside of China, but this week will mark a tipping point at which the elephant in the room will have to be acknowledged.

It is impossible to keep something this large under wraps for much longer.

Let's take a look at objective facts this morning:

1. A total of 15 of the 34 provinces and autonomous regions of China have crossed the threshold of sustained chain reaction virus outbreak. There is no turning back for them now. The freight train is already rolling down the tracks.

2. Despite efforts to manipulate the already manipulated the official numbers, the rate of infection continues at just as high of a rate as it was last week. People testing positive for the virus but not showing symptoms are no longer being included in the count.

Even taking the official numbers at face value, the admitted death rate has increased to 2.24% when two weeks ago it varied from 2.02-2.18%, the highest rate yet.

3. Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, South Korea and Japan are at a serious stage and all could very well see numbers of infected quadruple by the end of this week.

4. The cruise ship Diamond Princess, currently isolated in quarantine at a port in Japan, has increased tenfold over the weekend.

5. The numbers of officially acknowledged infected and dead have quadrupled since last week.

Meanwhile, talking heads continue to push the narrative that the virus has peaked and all is well. They will continue to do this until they have completely discredited themselves, but by then, their purpose will have been served. All is not well.

Don't listen to words, study actions instead to learn the truth.

True action:

Chinese automakers, energy companies and tech companies have refitted their assembly lines to produce face masks and medical supplies.

This is hugely significant. It takes millions of dollars to change manufacturing equipment and disrupts what the company is intended to produce.

This action is not done for a virus that has already run its course. This is only done because they know this is only just beginning.

 

IN THE UNITED STATES

5 Evacuees From Wuhan At Travis AFB, are hospitalized With Coronavirus Symptoms

The US is currently preparing 16 quarantine centers.

JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii (HNL)
Great Lakes Training Center Navy Base, Illinois (ORD)
Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, Texas (DFW)
March ARB, California (LAX)
Travis AFB, California (SFO)

Dobbins ARB, Georgia (ATL)
Fort Hamilton, New York (JFK)
Naval Base Kitsap, Washington (SEA)
Joint Base Anacostia, Washington DC (IAD)
Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey (EWR)
Fort Custer Training Center, Michigan (DTW)

The DOD already has quarantine centers at Fort Carson in Colorado, Travis Air Force Base and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California, and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

According to a licensed medical professional on staff at a New Jersey hospital, New Jersey has TWO CONFIRMED CASES of coronavirus, but this information is being deliberately concealed by the New Jersey Department of Health.  The cases are believed to be at University Hospital in Newark.

UPDATE 3:51 PM EST -- The New Jersey Department of Health DENIES this claim.   Minutes ago, they called me and said "There are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus anywhere in New Jersey."  They suggested that any resident of New Jersey who wants fact-based information about the virus, can call the New jersey Department of Health at 1-800-222-1222.   Trained health professionals are available 24/7 and can accommodate multiple languages.

 

IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

"The UK government has announced new powers to fight the spread of coronavirus, saying it poses a "serious and imminent threat" to public health.

People can now be forcibly quarantined or sent into isolation and will not be free to leave under the new measures."

The number of people infected by the coronavirus in the UK has doubled to eight - after four more patients tested positive for the virus.

It comes as the government issued new powers in England to keep people in quarantine to stop the virus spreading.

In order to do this the Department of Health has described the coronavirus as a "serious and imminent threat" to public health.

The overall risk level to the UK remains "moderate."

There have been more than 40,000 cases of the virus globally, mostly in China. The total number of deaths in China is now 908 - but the number of newly-infected people per day has stabilized.

 

IN AUSTRALIA

More than a thousand people are now in isolation across Queensland, facing a nervous wait to see if they have the novel coronavirus.

The state’s chief health officer Jeannette Young on Monday visited Cairns to inspect the work being done there to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The city sees a number of direct international flights arriving without passing through another larger Australian city, and so is a key entry point for potential cases.

 

IN JAPAN

NISSAN MOTOR TO TEMPORARILY HALT PRODUCTION AT KYUSHU PLANT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

The number of people confirmed infected aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, presently in Quarantine, has jumped to 130 confirmed infected.

The virus is spreading out of control in most countries and the number of infected people is likely to explode exponentially THIS WEEK. 

 

So many countries are reporting new confirmed cases, it is almost too much to report.  For instance, INDIA is reporting 9400 people under observation due to having symptoms.

More tonight on the Hal Turner Radio Show airing at 9:00 PM eastern US time (GMT -0500)

    What a horrific scenario for parents. with schools closed till March 1st and now parents being called back to work they must scramble to find day care centers. With these facilities overwhelmed how will they be able to guard against infectious entering and spreading. While kids seem less prone to contact the virus, still it is unimaginable placing your children in one of these centers. The only other choice is to have relatives or friends step in yet they as well can not be trusted with such a contagion on the loose.

      Most asian countries the family lives together, so most likely the grandparents are there also.

    Just wondering and we could face the same thing here. The government decides everyone must be quarantined in their house. Lets say all in this particular household are healthy. Then the health professionals are ordered to go house to house and do no knock welfare checks that are mandatory. The professional health care people inspect a family next door to you that are sick. They then go to your house and contaminate you while checking your family and then your family ends up contracting the sickness after they leave because they were there to help you. What am I missing. What could go wrong?

      In the large cities there could be some truth to that, but the vast majority of people live in their own home and there is a natural barrier between them and their neighbors. Plus the gov here is not like what it is in china. They don't have the man power even if they wanted to. In china the police state is HUGE. What's missing in the outbreak here. It started around the 8th of Dec in Wuhan. Before the end of the month Dr. Lie? had already alerted the gov. Thats 3 weeks. It's been here probably since the 8th of Jan, since there are so many chinese students enrolled in the universities here, plus all the international travel to and from china. No outbreak. Somethings not right. No, the gov here isn't covering it up. They don't have the resources to do so and the health care workers wouldn't keep their mouths shut.

      True and then they are movibg thise related to confirmed cases into stadiums and such. And the latest studies show almost half (41%) are being infected in hospitals including workers and patients.

      What can and would go wrong here, is unlike many other countries, people here are armed. If they feel like their lives, property or freedom are being threatened, there'll be dire consequences for any government representatives who attempt any sort of forcible intervention or detainment.

    With Beijing the capitol and Shanghai, the largest industrial center and port in China locked down, China is economically gone. Get ready, because once the giant bubble of liquidity they pumped into their markets to keep them afloat wears off, the crash will begin in earnest and spread internationally in short order.

      They will pump, pump, pump it up. True, but's not all bad. There's the possibility that the market here will be optimistic that the production lost in china will be brought back here and some other merging markets will gain production. If everyone panics, then yes, it'll could be a blood bath. Most important is what happens with europe and here with the 'wuhan' flu.

        The problem is, that the markets here can assume all our outsourced manufacturing will be brought home, but the infrastructure to make the products would have to be built again and in the meantime, no supply and no economy. China can only pump their economy with fake money, so long as people believe the manufacturing will start up again soon, but even a blind man will be able to see within a few more days, that's not happening. About the only thing China can do at that point, will be to open the doors to the vault and start selling their giant gold horde.

          Yes, but and this is a but, this isn't going to kill everyone in china. China will resume production if not in 2 months, probably 3. There will be a shortage of goods for a while and once they are back producing, then production will leave as it can be rebuilt somewhere else.

            We currently have NO idea how many dead there are in China, nor how long the cycle will continue. China is now on their 2nd two week quarantine cycle, so this isn't going away soon. How many deaths will there be over the next few weeks?

            May that be so- the catalyst that brings production back home and we become the manufacturing powerhouse again! Oh...but I am a dreamer...I think of Michigan in her glory days. We'll probably just relocate to Mexico though, or somewhere else but here. <heavy sigh>

              I still love to visit Michigan, but I'm old enough to remember the days, before Detroit, Flint and other manufacturing hubs were collapsed by the Democrats. I also remember the days, before all those filthy Muslims got dumped in Michigan and are now polluting everything from the landscape to what's left of the culture. Very sad.

                I spent just a few short years living about 10 miles below the border(IN) and my wife grew up there. Even 10 years ago I heard people say "last one out, turn off the lights". I heard so much...fell in love with the Irish Hills area, loved my monthly trips to Cabela's in Dundee, and I worked in Coldwater. Just loved MI...

                I remember Detroit when you could ice skate at Belle Isle or see the Nikes at the north end. Have church picnics at Boblo. Go to Sears on Gratiot by downtown All ruined.

                  What happened to Detroit reminds me of that old proverb "Nothing ever changes for the better"....however, I'd amend that by adding: "whenever authoritarian Democrats are in charge."

            Sounds easy enough, until you begin to factor in China's debt load, the overall instability of their currency markets and the potential for tens of millions of their skilled and semi-skilled labor force to die. Their economy was much shakier than our, even before the virus. The only thing they have going for them from this point on, is their gold. With a collapsed economy, collapsed currency and severely depleted skilled labor force, they won't be recovering in a few months. Years most likely, but not months.

            Lastly, China as a nation has been basically a forced labor camp run by the Chinese Communist Party and as their grip on power loosens, you can probably expect to add a full-blown civil war into the mess they are headed into. Civil wars don't get factories built, they get them destroyed or at the least, closed for long periods and if famine gets added in, now you have a truly monumental disaster.

              I doubt a civil war in China would happen - a) the people are unarmed, b) the regime is ruthless and will cull dissenters without hesitation, c) the population is already thinned heavily due to the virus, d) the population will starve while the regime will eat, e) the EU and US won't get involved because a productive China makes them a shit-ton of money.

                I suppose anything is possible, but recorded history says otherwise. Many times over the centuries, the repressive dynasties have fallen in China, despite having all the advantages, including better arms, better food, organized military troops, etc.. These periods of civil war coincidentally always occur at the onset of a Grand Solar Minimum, just like we're headed into now. When the food begins to dry up, the power structure is overthrown. The Chinese people as a whole, rose up and destroyed their masters, despite extremely high losses. The authorities could kill tens of thousands of normal people for every one they lose and in the end, they would still fall through nothing more than the sustained rate of attrition. Also, the Chinese population has not been *thinned heavily.* Even if 100 million people are already dead, that's just a drop in the bucket for a country that has almost 1.4 billion people.

                  There will be unrest and illness that will even spread into the army. You will see empty tanks, empty military vehicles. People will rebel and riot against the government and army. They will feel that death trying to fight the horrible government system is better than a slow silent death from the virus. Watch for it.

                  You nailed something square on the head there- hunger. I have a .mil relative who is recently retired- mid-level officer- and I asked about the things we see and why the military isn't seemingly jumping in to intervene on our current overthrow. His answer was shocking and not shocking at the same time. "No one is hungry." Many of our military folks have a pretty decent life- families, activities, nice homes, nice cars...just as susceptible to status-quo and comfort as anyone. "when people start going hungry- look out!"

              True, I can see that happening, but I think things will fester for a while and then it will come about.
