Economically, disaster is now taking place: Supply chain disruption from lack of China manufacturing will bring corporations to Bankruptcy now that China has announced factories will NOT re-open until at least May 1, 2020. The US Stock Market is likely to be completely wiped out; may not even exist in 3 months. Banks? Don't ask.

Hubei province says all non-essential businesses will remain closed until at least February 20 and all schools will remain closed until further notice.
With this update I can tell you, we are doomed! This disease outbreak is completely, totally, out of control. There is no stopping it in China, and very likely everywhere else as well. China was hiding numbers from the beginning and now, it looks like someone else is in control of reporting numbers!!! They cannot hide it anymore. More on that later . . .
Sudden political leadership slaughtering took place in China overnight:
State media said that Zhang Jin, the Communist party chief of the health commission in hardest-hit "Hubei province, and Liu Yingzi, its director, were both fired. They will be replaced by a national-level official.
Jiang Chaoliang has been removed as Party Secretary of Hubei province, according to state-run media; no reason given (Reason: For releasing numbers larger than was allowed.) The Party Secretary is the most senior official in a province. Jiang Chaoliang will be replaced by Ying Yong.
China ALSO removed the Director of Hong Kong and Macau office.
Wang Zhonglin, Party chief of Jinan, Shandong province, was appointed as Wuhan Party chief, replacing Ma Guoqiang.
Smells more and more like a coup In Beijing. This could turn out VERY bad for the US if it is a coup.
In the US, the Armed Forces have been ORDERED to prepare for Domestic Deployment inside the Continental United States, for Pandemic Control. This includes quarantine enforcement and other "community based" activities.
U.S. Northern Command is executing plans to prepare for a potential pandemic of the novel coronavirus, now called COVID19, according to Navy and Marine Corps service-wide messages issued this week.
An executive order issued by the Joint Staff and approved by Defense Secretary Mark Esper this month directed Northern Command and geographic combatant commanders to initiate pandemic plans, which include ordering commanders to prepare for widespread outbreaks and confining service members with a history of travel to China.
The Navy and Marine Corps messages, issued Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, reference an executive order directing U.S. Northern Command to implement the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13.
The document serves as the Pentagon’s blueprint for planning and preparing for widespread dispersion of influenza and previously unknown diseases.
U.S. Northern Command said Wednesday it was directed the Joint Staff Feb. 1 to commence “prudent planning” in their assigned role synchronizing the department’s plans for pandemic flu and disease.
This includes ensuring that the plans contain procedures for “response, isolation, quarantine, restriction of movement and community based intervention” as well as developing measures to contain and treat those possibly exposed.
Here is the ORDER from the Pentagon:
The CDC released 800 evacuees today and they were not tested
There are a number of cases in which people with coronavirus initially test negative.
In Tianjin, health officials say a woman developed symptoms on January 25. Her tests on Feb. 5, 8, and 10 came back as negative. The test on Feb. 12 was positive for coronavirus.
So now that the US CDC has allowed 800 evacuees to be released from 14 day Quarantine, how do we know they're NOT infected? What if one or more ARE infected?
According to a paper from a scientist at Lawrence Livermore Labs, this disease is far more contagious than previously known. He writes:
"We estimated that the number of infected individuals during early epidemic double every 2.4 days, and the R0 value is likely to be between 4.7 and 6.6."
That means each infected person is likely to go on to infect between 4.7 and 6.6 OTHER people! ! ! !
MORE . . .
There are a number of cases in which people with coronavirus initially test negative. In Tianjin, China, health officials say a woman developed symptoms on January 25.
Her tests on Feb. 5, 8, and 10 came back as negative. The test on Feb. 12 was positive for coronavirus.
But the CDC turned loose 800 from Quarantine and didn;'t even test them. Great. Just great.
Some of the coronavirus testing kits sent to states and to at least 30 other countries have flaws and do not work properly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.
The kits were meant to enable states to conduct their own testing and get results faster than they would by shipping samples to the C.D.C. in Atlanta. But the failure of the kits means that states still have to depend on the C.D.C., which will mean several days’ delay in getting results.
The C.D.C. announced last week that it had begun shipping about 200 kits to laboratories in the United States and roughly 200 more to labs in more than 30 other countries. Each kit can test about 700 to 800 specimens from patients, the agency said.
The CDC also confirmed another case of positive infection in San Diego, CA, bringing the US total to 14 known infected.
Los Angeles county is telling more than 1000 people to self-quarantine after travelling to China recently. Georgia has told the same to 200 in Atlanta.
VIRUS COULD SPREAD VIA BANKNOTES AND COINS
Britons have been warned to use alcohol sanitizer after handling money amid fears the deadly coronavirus can be passed on via coins and banknotes.
Dr Martin Wiselka, consultant on infectious diseases at the University of Leicester NHS Trust, warned Britain may be “on the cusp of something we might not be able to control”.
It was originally believed the virus was passed only through direct person-to-person contact with an infected person.
London has confirmed its first case of Coronavirus inside the city (Pop. 9 Million) itself. This makes a total of nine (9) infected in the UK.
Elsewhere, SonLôi, a village in northern Vietnam, has been put on lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
This is the first Mass-Quarantine in another country outside China. The lockdown will last for 20 days.
The village is a commune of 10,000 people.
China now says the re-opening of its major factories will not take place until at least May 1.
This means not much of anything is being assembled or manufactured in China. That means companies around the world will begin to suffer product and parts shortages and outages. This translates into layoffs, and corporate Bankruptcies.
Stocks will plummet as the supply chain disruption spreads and companies are forced into bankruptcy. One Stock Broker confided to me "There might not even BE a stock market in three months."
Oh, and retail stores? They're aleady running out of products and cannot get new supplies because China is offline. So if you don't have the stuff you need until May 1 or thereabouts, you'd better get it quick before it's all gone.
How did we get here? One web site (HERE) makes the following claims:
"By grafting HIV proteins into a flu virus, renegade researcher in Japan, Yoshihiro Kawaoka, not only increased a dormant virus’s ability to replicate but, in the process of repeating this technique in his subsequent virus research, has unleashed ruthlessly aggressive hybrids with massive killing power as seen in the unstoppable slaughter of innocents in Wuhan. The exponential expansion of the death toll in China, soon to be repeated in other countries, proves that a persistent laxity of ethical standards in the major powers, and abysmal performance of the WHO, has enabled a maniacal campaign of extermination by the heirs of Unit 731 to realize their mission of genocide. The lawless pharmaceuticals, insane vaccinators and rogue microbiologists must be stopped in their tracks or humanity will face its final solution.
By not paying attention to what these mad scientist types are doing we have allowed them to destroy us." (SOURCE)
Where does this end?
"Appear weak when you are strong", "The Art of War"
China can afford to lose 1/3 of it's population along with 1/3 likely severely disabled or dying.
Still leaves 400 million healthy.
200 million standing army.....
Thousands of container ships....
Explains the "practice runs" of containers full of Chinese troops that has been ongoing for years.
The "Silk Road" was designed to carry heavy loads..(Armor)..Europe gets some too.
Yup, they WILL take the USA just like General Chi Haotian said they would.
Find his speech from 2005. Go down 10 paragraphs. He laid out China's long term plan to use bio weapons to weaken the world, then use their vast population as an army to take over . . . . everything.
And so it goes.
UPDATE 9:05 AM EST --
Wartime Status Order
Party Committee of Beijing Centers for Disease Control
In order to further discipline, compact responsibility, and ensure that all prevention and control work is carried out in an efficient and standardized manner, the Party Committee of the Beijing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a wartime state order, requiring its party members and employees to fully recognize the "critical period", "critical moment", and "keys" The urgency and importance of the moment, consciously established a "very conscious" and entered a "wartime state."
The first is to insist on using "state of war" to lead the thinking.
The center not only fulfills the city's epidemic prevention and control duties, provides professional technical support duties for government decision-making, but also implements the "unit responsibility" of the "quartet responsibility" to protect the safety and health of all employees, both of which are equally important and cannot be sidelined. Under the unified leadership of the Party Committee, it unconditionally obeys the decision-making and deployment of the Party Committee in the wartime state and serves the current prevention and control work. It resonates at the same frequency, obeys unified orders, unified commands, and acts.
The second is to insist on strengthening implementation with "wartime standards."
All party members and cadres must take overall consideration into account and resolutely put an end to work mistakes caused by this mistake. All employees must unconditionally obey work scheduling and consciously obey management. Strengthen the work style and achieve "the end of the day and the end of the day"; adhere to the problem-oriented, responsibility-oriented, sensitive matters in the prevention and control, unexplained events and the work of leaders at all levels, to understand the situation at the grassroots level and guide commence to work.
Minimize "cross-contact". During the epidemic, all staff members are strictly prohibited from leaving Beijing, strictly commuting to work, eating out, and consciously doing good health management after work. The Security Section should strengthen the access control of the three courtyards, and strictly control the entrance and exit of the gates and all foreign personnel. All personnel enter the hospital area for temperature monitoring and must enter the hospital with work cards to reduce unnecessary travel during work. Non-work must not be connected to the department, try to use the phone or WeChat, SMS and other means of communication. Try to have as few meetings and short meetings as possible to control the number of participants.
The fourth is to insist on strict management with "wartime thinking."
Highlight political security, ideological security, network information security, security of confidential work, laboratory biological security, food security, etc. The epidemic data collection, statistics and reporting will be done well, and information security and confidentiality security incidents will be resolutely prevented. Front-line personnel engaged in flow regulation, pathogen inspection, and close management should strictly implement prevention and control guidelines and operating specifications, do a good job of personal protection requirements, and ensure personal safety. Strengthen laboratory management and resolutely put an end to the theft, leakage, and loss of pathogenic bacteria (poisons) and various samples.
Fifth, we must adhere to the "wartime need" service guarantee.
The equipment and material security department shall fully protect the front line, make plans in advance in accordance with the needs of the prevention and control of the flow of returning adults in Beijing, and evaluate and reserve and manage protective materials daily. Implement the "precision arrangement of materials" requirements, timely grasp the material inventory and daily consumption, and carry out scientific and efficient deployment, not only to implement a convenient procurement process to meet the needs of prevention and control, but also to seriously fulfill the "three major and one big" and internal control requirements. All employees should implement self-protection requirements, and non-epidemic personnel should not wear medical N95 masks, including N95 masks purchased by themselves.
Sixth, we must adhere to "war discipline" and take it seriously.
The current situation of epidemic prevention and control is extremely severe, and the responsibility for prevention and control is more important than Mount Tai. The big battle is coming. All party branches must mobilize their thoughts and gather the masses to give full play to the role of battle fortress; cadres at all levels must lead by example, dare to take the lead and give full play to the leading role; each party member must advance, take on the burden and give full play to the vanguard Exemplary role. All party branches, departments, and cadres at all levels must earnestly perform their main responsibilities, and disciplinary commissions must perform their supervisory responsibilities to ensure the smooth flow of government orders and prohibitions.
All middle-level cadres and branch secretaries who violated the disciplinary requirements in the entire epidemic prevention and control work and caused significant adverse effects and serious consequences to the center and the city's prevention and control work were all suspended or dismissed in advance; timely public notification of typical problems investigated and dealt with.
In other words, full MARTIAL LAW declared on 21 million people.
