(GG: Definitely worth the 3 minutes to read.)

JAN 27: Canada Says Wife Of First nCoV Patient Also Has Virus
"Alarming development . . . this might constitutes evidence of human-to-human transmission outside of China - a sign that the virus has reached a new stage of contagion that some epidemiologists and researchers dismissed as extremely improbable just last week."

JAN 27: Wuhan Mayor Offers To Resign As Coronavirus Cases Near 3,000; Supply Shortages Intensify

". . . information about the virus was not disclosed in a "timely manner"

. . . Chinese officials waited a whole month to inform the world about the outbreak after the first cases were discovered in early December

. . . roughly 5 million people had already left Wuhan before the lockdown

. . . In addition to the 11 million 'official' residents of Wuhan (are) millions of migrant workers from the countryside (who) have already returned home, threatening to spread the virus across China's impoverished rural areas where awareness of prevention strategies is minimal.

. . . scientists on Monday said they had, in fact, found evidence of the virus at the market . . . the virus was detected in 35 of the 585 environmental samples . . . with 33 of the positive samples taken from the market’s western zone, where the wildlife trading business was concentrated.

. . . more health researchers in China are warning that the state is woefully undercounting the number of cases. A researcher at HKU med school announced that his new estimate for active cases in China is closer to 25,000.

. . . April and May can see major outbreaks in the aforementioned four major (Chinese) cities

A much larger problem in China is the shutdown of major parts of its economy, and those impacts will soon be felt globally. China is the growth engine for many economies of the world -- this is a shock that could tilt the world into a prolonged slowdown. . . . Brende suggested the global economy could be entering a period of vulnerability where external shocks could trigger a global recession. The shutdown of major industrial hubs in China and collapsing consumption by Chinese consumers could certainly be a shock that will shortly impact the global economy.

JAN 26: N95 Masks Are Selling Out All Over The World As People Everywhere Panic About The Coronavirus Pandemic

. . . based on a study published in The Lancet, the Wuhan coronavirus fatality rate has leaped to 15%, and the infection rate among those exposed is 83%. These numbers are virtually unheard of in the world of microbiology and infectious disease transmission. It means that 15 out of every 100 infected people will die. It also means that 83 out of 100 exposed people will become infected and able to transmit the disease to others.

Remember: Just like any study, that one could potentially be flawed, but if the truth is anywhere close to that we are in big, big trouble.

JAN 26: Over And Over Again The Mainstream Media Hasn’t Been Telling Us The Truth About This Coronavirus Outbreak

1. . . . we were repeatedly told that there was very little to be concerned about because it was very unlikely that human to human transmission was happening. But now we know that this virus spreads very, very easily between people.

2. . . . we were repeatedly told by the mainstream media was that a victim had to start showing symptoms before they could spread the disease. Unfortunately, now we know that is completely and totally false. As you will see below, Chinese officials have confirmed that even those showing no symptoms at all can spread the disease.

3. . . . the biggest fraud of all has been the “official numbers” that the Chinese government has been putting out. According to the latest count, there are now 2,051 confirmed cases and the death toll has risen to 56, but at this point it has become clear that those numbers are completely divorced from reality.

4. Many sick people are not even being seen in the hospitals for lack of personnel to help them. They are being turned away.

5. . . . the Chinese have also been purposely suppressing the death toll by falsely categorizing the deaths of many of the victims . . .

GG note:  For instance: if the person dies BEFORE being tested for the corona virus, their cause of death is NOT listed as being from the corona virus because they were not tested for it so, therefore, it cannot be confirmed.
