Coronavirus news: Weird smoke hangs over Wuhan, is China BURNING 1000s of infected bodies?

AN UNEXPLAINED fog hanging over the coronavirus city of Wuhan is being blamed on Chinese authorities burning thousands of infected corpses.

It is interesting that people are using surgical masks to protect themselves.

Anthrax spores can travel through paper. A Corona virus is much smaller than anthrax and would glide through paper. Try breathing through paper. It's not easy.

Will surgical masks really offer protection? Or should we be looking for something a bit more upmarket from the hardware store?

Another one in London btw, and I'm hearing lots of warnings from Brighton schools.

This article explains it the best but it pretty much says the flimsy paper masks dont do much.

''If someone has a respiratory infection, masks are helpful at stopping spread,” Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist and professor at the University of Toronto, told Vox’s Julia Belluz. “But if people are uninfected wearing a little flimsy mask, it is not going to significantly reduce their risk of acquiring this infection.”

It then says-

''People typically gravitate to standard surgical masks, which basically look like blue-hued paper rectangles. But some have sought out N95 respirators, a circular cup-like mask generally used by health care workers. According to data from Helium 10, a software tool for Amazon sellers, “N95 mask” is the third most-searched phrase on Amazon in mid-February.''

Another 14000 cases and 242 deaths added to the count.

I don't think it is stabilising as suggested overnight.


I want it all, and I want it now.

They have changed the criteria they are measuring with, but don't know why. Are they running out of health workers?

Overall, we rate Zero Hedge an extreme right biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left.

I mean, where are these crazy conspiracy theory websites, I just give up, who is going to believe this rubbish, the bodies are not 'infectious'

Scare mongering sensationalism

To be fair, it is the Chinese.

It seems like with the recent figures, they have only been counting them as a Corona virus death only if they have done the pathology.

So, one can assume that all the other deaths from pneumonia weren't counted.

Thus, it's not inconceivable that they would burn those bodies so they aren't tested and won't double the death rate and cause a panic.

The fact that it has clearly spread to western nations and we are going to have an explosion in numbers over the next month may have prompted this.

Either that, or the sacking of officials that may have prompted this.

All agreed, but just think of the logistics of burning that many bodies, you would simply dig some deep holes and quietly bury them in lime out in the country, too many people would have knowledge of burning bodies and just too difficult and time consuming

If I was you I would be hoping like mad that the Chinese are not lying because China’s economy and Australia's are closely linked and on present guesses China is going to take a wallop from this.

I would even question the death rate.

As far as I can tell, they are comparing the deaths to the current victims. This would make sense on an existing virus, because the stats have evened out.

We are talking about numbers that are changing exponentially. To get the real death rate, we should be comparing the number of deaths to the number of cases two weeks ago. Two weeks being the incubation period.

That would give you about a ten percent death rate, similar to sars, but much more infectious.

I am sure we are getting a very misleading picture, by the time you have the political control element and then lack of resources I would think the chinese have no real idea.

We could be looking at turbo charged sars here. Death rate of sars, with the infectiousness of the common cold. We could be looking at a couple of hundred million deaths this year.

But it mainly attacks the demographic that votes for trump and brexit, so it's not all bad I guess.

If what we were being told was the truth.

And I said the reaction didn't equal what we were being told.

I suspect now that they were trying to cover up, and we were being lied to.

Happy now?

... And you shouldn't be hoping mad because you don't live in the west.

But just as WA was starting to recover, they get a load of this.

Nothing to do with my leanings.

All to do with the website.

"website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information"

Do some research, that's all. Think for yourself.
