And yet, the number of deaths significantly exceeds the number recovered.


Recovered 74, Deaths 99. (per this chart at this moment, will likely be different in two minutes)

So far it does not look like that is the case; but time will tell as this disease progresses.

On the other hand, Asian countries seem to have a much better handle on containing it and stabilizing it.

I believe if I were capable of coming up with a virus on purpose for the USA ---it would be easier
for a one RT plane ticket to spread it in NYC.
If you had the time and money then go all around the White House and let it fly.

If you want to get caught, do it directly. If you want to get away with it, do it indirectly and make sure you get yourself hurt a little, too.

I feel it is a test for mass manipulation. The news media has always worked in harmony. Those that control information flow actually create perception and a false reality. The corona virus is a joke. Do you really think anyone in the media or the government care about the elderly? They want them to die.

Just look at the statistics of the virus itself. 80% have little to no symptoms, a sniffle. Some don't even know they have it. look at the death rate. It is minimal. 50k folks die every year at the hospital for an illness they get while at the hospital. Folks are home now listening to the media likes its truthful entity.

Public employee's do exactly what they are told. Politicians play follow the leader. This whole thing is a test. the mers in 2012 was a corona virus. For the old folks that die, it was there time. old people die, what do you want, we all die.

I understand ---but, a test for what, exactly? You say mass manip. OK.
But who is really doing the testing? We know already we can be mass manipulated.
Try yelling fire in a 10 story building.


Sorry, forget I asked you...I will never be reading it.

I get that.
You don't think it was a bit much just to 'get the USA'?

Now - I get financial things - I sold high a few weeks ago and now I have just 'bought low'.
This will make billionaires.

A Global scale mass pandemic with global economy on halt is a little different than a 10 story building wouldn't you say?

A virus will runs it's course no matter what. There was a corona virus strain in 2012-the mers-corona virus. So this is nothing new. Though the fear aspect and the control level is on a world wide scale with everyone falling in line is very organized and in harmony. It's what moves behind the scenes not what is plain to see.

I don't think it's just to 'get the USA'. It's getting Europe pretty good, too.

That's what's weird to me. It's been lingering around in the background for months and then BAM! mass hysteria. Seems alotta misinformation going around as well.

IDK.
It makes me suspicious too. I am also suspicious of the way the government seems to not want to test people. That would seem to be a way to keep the fear up. If you actually tested all the people who had it, perhaps it would be obvious the tiny number who would die.

I am also suspicious at how we can't get the most basic of information. In my state every day there is a briefing and every day they fail to tell us where the cases are (county) and every day the comments light up asking for that. Why wouldn't they tell us that ? To keep the atmosphere of confusion and fear.

For years now where I work they have been obsessed with their continuity of operations planning and now they got to use it. Almost feels like there are far too many people in this country who are either professionally obsessed with disaster or informally obsessed and these industries saw their opportunity.

The Asian countries know how to wear a face mask! You look at Americans wearing face mask and none of us know how to wear one. Perhaps we feel uncomfortable wearing a mask?

In early January I had a chest infection and cough and went to the doctor's office. I wore a mask to prevent spreading the disease I had to other patients and health care professionals. But, even when sick, most of us do not wear a mask. Sometimes the receptionist will wear one at the doctor's office; but that is an exception to the rule.

It might just be because the Asians have very populated cities and that is how they learned to cope with disease and air pollution?
