RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
It's become impossible not to see God's hand in hanging people with their own contradictions.

"Pay your health care premiums or shut up and die, poors."
"It's just old people, let them die."

Now it's:

"China is morally obligated to sell us health care supplies OR ELSE!!!"

Do we need to ask what the ZOG would do if the tables were turned? It's a rhetorical question at this stage. What's coming for us in the West we have earned by our greed and complacency. Repent, pray and prepare.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

This poor bastard is probably being force-fed rat stew at some re-education camp.

Quote:Property Exec Who Criticized Xi over Virus Handling Is Missing
Sunday, 15 March 2020

An influential former Chinese property executive who called President Xi Jinping a "clown" over a speech he made last month about the government's efforts to battle the coronavirus has gone missing, three of his friends told Reuters.

Ren Zhiqiang, a member of China's ruling Communist Party and a former top executive of state-controlled property developer Huayuan Real Estate Group, has not been contactable since March 12, they said.

"Many of our friends are looking for him," his close friend and businesswoman Wang Ying said in a statement to Reuters, describing them as being "extremely anxious."

"Ren Zhiqiang is a public figure and his disappearance is widely know. The institutions responsible for this need to give a reasonable and legal explanation for this as soon as possible," she said.

Calls made by Reuters to Ren's mobile phone went unanswered.

The Beijing police did not immediately respond to requests by phone and fax for comment on Sunday. China's State Council Information Office did not immediately respond to a faxed request for comment.

An essay Ren shared with people he knew in recent weeks took aim at a speech Xi made on Feb. 23, which state media reported was teleconferenced to 170,000 party officials nationwide. Copies of his essay were later posted online by others.

In the essay, which does not mention Xi by name, Ren said after studying the speech he "saw not an emperor standing there exhibiting his 'new clothes,' but a clown stripped naked who insisted on continuing being emperor," according to a version posted by China Digital Times, a U.S.-based website.

He also said it revealed a "crisis of governance" within the party, and that a lack of free press and speech had prevented the outbreak from being tackled sooner, causing the situation to worsen.

Ren's disappearance comes as censorship over how local media and online users discuss the epidemic has tightened in recent weeks.

The coronavirus, which emerged in China late last year, has infected more than 80,000 people in the country, killing 3,199.

Ren, who gained the nickname "Cannon Ren" for previous critiques posted on social media, was put on probation from the party for a year in 2016 as part of a punishment for publicly criticizing government policy.

That year, the government ordered platforms such as the Twitter-like Weibo to shut down Ren's social media accounts, which at the time had more than 30 million online followers, saying he had been "spreading illegal information."

Beijing has framed the battle against coronavirus as a "People's War" led by Xi.

While the draconian measures to fight the virus, including the lockdown of the city of Wuhan, have proven effective at containing it even as the disease spreads rapidly in other countries, China has faced criticism for suppressing information in the outbreak's early days.

Quote: ISIS tells its terrorists not to travel to Europe for jihad — because of coronavirus

After years of urging its terrorists to attack major European cities, ISIS is now telling them to steer clear due to the coronavirus.

Any sick jihadists already in Europe, however, should stay there — presumably to sicken infidels, according to a ‘sharia’ directive printed in the group’s al-Naba newsletter, the Sunday Times of London reported.

The “healthy should not enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it,” the newsletter advised.

The newsletter instructs jihadists that the “plague” is a “torment sent by God on whomsoever He wills.”

Iraq, where most of the surviving fragments of the group remain, had 110 reported coronavirus cases on Sunday morning, ten of them fatal, according to Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking the contagion.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
I was coming back from my evening walk whilst wearing a mask, and had successfully avoiding being near anyone for each walk today, when a truck slowed down and pulled up right next to me. A guy somewhere his his sixties leant his head far out the window and said "How are you going mate?" in an exaggerated manner. I have no idea who he was. He didn't wait for a response, and drove off.

There was something aggressive about it, like he was taking the piss out of me for wearing a mask. Jokes on him, it's not that good a mask.

I swear, it's like Boomers have a death wish.

I don't know enough about viral shedding to understand when I should come out of isolation, in terms of being around other people. I thought this article suggested a 19-22 day period, so I was going to stay isolated for another 10 days, assuming I don't end up in hospital. I still feel sick enough on Day 12 to not imagine feeling great by Day 14.

A good article detailing just how fucked USA (and any country that doesn't take this seriously) is in terms of ventilators used to save Coronavirus patients:

Breitbart Wrote:Source: U.S. Will Need up to 500,000 Ventilators for Coronavirus Victims

“A planning study run by the federal government in 2005 estimated that if the United States were struck with a moderate pandemic like the 1957 influenza, the country would need more than 64,000 ventilators,” said a March 13 report in the Washington Post. “If we were struck with a severe pandemic like the 1918 Spanish flu, we would need more than 740,000 ventilators — many times more than are available.”

But the nation only has 170,000 ventilators, according to a February inventory by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.

Many older Americans have also bought assisted-breathing devices that can than provide very high levels of oxygen.

The nation also has a variety of companies that make and sell ventilators, nearly all of which are for professional use by paramedics, nurses, and doctors. Roughly 14,000 ventilators are built in the United States each year.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/...s-victims/

Summary: the deficit in USA ventilator inventory that would be needed to adequately deal with a massive pandemic is about 40 years worth of of production - and that doesn't even begin to address the issue of a similar dearth of medical professionals who can operate them.

Yeah..., except.
We've never seen this kind of reaction to a disease before.
Whether governments, corporations or organizations.

A few of the 'It's just the Flu' posts on social media from friends and colleagues are not going to age well. I almost feel sorry for them.

By the way, what do we think is going on in Africa with the low numbers? Just luck? Heat (dry and hot, rather than humid and hot), person-to-person transmission rather than surface to person (uv killing it?). I always figured Africa and India would get hit hard quickly with this stuff. I still consider this to be very early days of course.

Nobody knows. For all we know, people in Africa might be dying in droves while being falsely diagnosed as having caught a flu, or they might be keeling over and dying on the streets of a South African slum. Who knows? They might be so used to that kind of stuff nobody bothered reporting it to the authorities since their governments doesn't care about them anyway.

Anyway, I'm much more inclined to believe there's an undetected death wave in Africa right now. There have been lots of people infected after they travelled to Egypt, roughly at the same time as Italy reports its initial cases. Interestingly, Egypt only has a few dozen cases registered at the moment...

Massive lockdown and quarantine where I live now in Europe.

No flights, limited transport out of the city, all schools closed, no restaurant or stores (only delivery). Only banks, supermarkets and pharmacies have stayed open.

This thing is going to cause a lot of pain. Economic, social, stress, and some people are going to die.

I'm not 100% sure of my religion or faith in God, but I honestly pray that things get better.
And I pray that everyone on this forum stays safe and stays alive.

Where are all these good progressive liberals who want open borders, free healthcare and houses built for all the refugees who want to come?

People are now basically killing each other for toilet paper.

This crisis has brought out the worst in humanity, and shows just how selfish we are in times of a crisis.

I went to five stories last night looking for basic household goods.

Africa’s population is very young and not very obese so they might not even notice this, compared to the other diseases going around there.

africa is not very well connected to the rest of the world. It really takes a more connected place like North Africa/South Africa to get the virus there. But it'll eventually makes it way there.
