North Korean suffering under the Evil Empire
"The coronavirus issue was discussed and the committee immediately had given permission to export the equipment" used to fight the illness, said Christoph Heusgen, who heads the United Nations body that applies the sanctions imposed on Pyongyang in an effort to force it to give up its ballistic and nuclear programs.

Ill-equipped North Korea has weak medical infrastructure and has cut itself off from the outside world, closing its borders as analysts say prevention is its only option.

"The problem is that right now the North Koreans closed the borders," Heusgen said after a closed-door Council meeting about the reclusive state.

The members of the Security Council called on North Korea "to allow this equipment in. So the population can be protected," he said, without elaborating on the type of equipment. AFP news posted in Yahoo News

During the Korean War in 1950/2 the evil Americans practically destroyed the whole infrastructure of North Korea. Everything man made were bombed to oblivion. Nothing more than 3 foot tall were found standing. That was how heavy and destructive the American bombings were in North Korea. But that was not all, all infrastructure, dams, rice fields etc etc were also flattened. The land were sprayed with chemicals to make them barren, could not be cultivated or grow anything on it.

That was the North Korea the evil Americans left behind. And that was not all. They misled the UN to impose sanction on this country, not allowing them to trade with any country in the world, thus adding to their economic woes, poverty and suffering of the Korean people, all the works of the evil Americans and their allies and the rest of the world that were too weak to go against the Evil Empire's dictate.

So, did the North Koreans closed their own borders as the evil white men would be spouting? who closed the borders on the North Koreans? Why were the North Koreans so poor? Their own doing, mismanagement or the works of the evil white men?

How valid were the comments by this Christoph Heusgen, another unthinking white that did not know the history of North Korea and uttering nonsense just like some of the bananas here? The North Koreans would love to trade with the rest of the world if not of the bullying and unjust sanctions imposed on them by a UN that was misled by the evil Americans. The fate of the North Koreans would befall Iran, Venezuela, Colombia and many African and South American countries under the perversed economic sanctions imposed by the evil Americans. Myanmar too would end up in the same state and the evil white men would say these countries closed their doors to the world, not because the evil Americans closed it on them.

Any idiots still uttering that the North Koreans closed their doors to the world? The door was slammed in their face by the evil Americans, locked down and isolated from the rest of the world.

Covid 19 - It would not hit the USA
When the coronavirus first Wuhan, China, there was this air of arrogance in the West, particularly the USA. It would not happen to us, it is a China problem. And so they went about attacking China and smearing China in every possible way they could. And as the problem grows daily, the West started to turn racists and there were many racist attacks against anyone looking Chinese in western countries, including the US of course. And one white asshole wrote and reported in another racist main media, the Wall Street Journal with the heading China is the New Sick Man of Asia, thinking it was very fun, and defended by the equally racist American govt as freedom of speech.

So it would not happen to the West, not to the USA. All the Swine Fever, Bird Flu. SARS and now Covid19 would only happen to China, not any other slum and filthy third world countries and definitely not Europe and the USA. The picture is changing and turning ugly with South Korea and Italy and Iran as the new centres of Covid19 epidemic. And the US is still smarting that they have very few cases, nothing to worry about. The latest, a Californian has been infected but with no travel record to China or other worse hit countries. Two in Washington also infected and also had no contacts with foreigners or been to affected places. These cases look like indigenous virus found in the USA. Perhaps one of the reasons why so few cases were found in the US is because they have only conducted screening on about 400 individuals as at 25 Feb 20. The rest of the Americans were not tested.

It would not hit the USA. One month after the news of Wuhan epidemic, most Asian stock markets started to fall sharply, but not the European stock markets or New York. They are immuned from this Wuhan virus, nothing to worry about, for reasons they know best. This virus only attacks Chinese perhaps or just Asians.

Nevermind the Covid19 virus. On 24 Feb, finally the impact of Covid19 hit the USA when Dow Industrial index fell more than 1,000 points. It did not stop there and the worse was on 27 Feb when it was -1190 points, the biggest one day fall in the history of American stock market. Last week alone US 3.5 trillion dollars were wiped out from the American stock market alone. All the life long savings, pension funds, whatever funds, took a big hit. No, the Covid19 virus would not hit the Americans, it just did a nuclear thing, to wipe out the stock market. No one American is spared from this onslaught. The one who laughs last laughs loudest.

Thank God it is finally happening. And the story is just being written. The ink has not dried yet and many more chapters to come before the end.

USA - when will the accidental country's luck run out?
Federal health employees were sent to interact with repatriated Americans quarantined for exposure to the novel coronavirus without wearing protective gear or receiving training, a whistleblower complaint cited by US media said Thursday.

The filing, which was seen by the Washington Post and New York Times, was submitted by a senior official in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who said she was improperly re-assigned after raising her concerns and threatened with being fired if she did not comply.

According to the two newspapers, the incidents were in relation to two California air force bases, Travis and March. More than a dozen workers were sent to each site. AFP


As cases of COVID-19 continue to spike around the world, the CDC warned on Tuesday that Americans should prepare for the likelihood that the coronavirus will eventually spread here. Amid escalating outbreaks outside of China, it’s clear that there has been undetected transmission of the virus from countries with which the U.S. has not restricted travel. While there has not been a corresponding spike in cases within the U.S., many health experts are warning the coronavirus may already be here. That remains an unknown though — in no small part because the U.S. has done very little testing for the virus. And thanks to problems at the CDC, including the distribution of a faulty test kit for the coronavirus, it’s not clear when the country’s testing capacity will improve.
“We’re testing everybody that we need to test,” President Trump insisted on Wednesday during his first press conference on the coronavirus. He’s almost certainly wrong....

According to the CDC, 445 people have been tested for the virus as of February 25, resulting in 15 confirmed coronavirus infections, including two cases resulting from person-to-person spread, and one case of unknown origin. Those totals only include cases detected and laboratory-tested inside the U.S.....NY Intelligencer


The above comments from two American media sources said something very typical of the USA, the accidental country. They are fumbling along with the way they are handling the Covid19 pandemic. bad gear, bad protocol, bad test kits, no test kits and a disinterested attitude in testing Americans for infection by the Covid19.

But all will turn out well like in the past in this accidental country. Luck is on their side....question is for how long. The USA has been thrusted to become the most powerful and richest country in the world for nearly a century. When would their luck run out and bring them down on their knees as they fumbled along from accident to accident and coming up on top?

If the end of the Empire is near, this Covid19 could be an accident too far. The numbers of affected cases in the USA is low, only 60 plus, not because it is low but because they were not testing them, just like H1N1. They still did not know the truth and the truth could be very ugly. And recent cases in the USA are indigenous, with no known contact with imported cases.

Or maybe their tidak apa attitude is due to the fact that they already have the vaccine and have no cause to be alarm and to panic.Or is it that they know the virus is all over the USA and it is better not to test, better not to know?

Coronavirus - Did The Virus Originate in the US?
When it started in Wuhan, the evil and irresponsible Americans quickly put the fingers at China as the origin of this virus, even leaking from a Wuhan Lab. As the story unfolds, more information and data are showing that the virus did not originate from China. The Wuhan or China strain is different from those found in Italy, Iran, South Korea and other places. And cases are sprouting out in all the far corners of the world, even in floating cruise ships. Why and how?
The only country that has all the 5 strains of coronavirus is the USA. There were few cases reported in the USA, not reported before the Wuhan incident is because the USA were not testing them. Ignorance is bliss. They did not test them, thousands of Americans died and buried presuming dying of natural death or common flu.
China found out because it was the first country that had a widespread and tested it. Now that every country is testing it, they quickly found that the coronavirus is in their country. The more they test, the more cases are found. And many have no contact with virus affected countries. The virus flew from Wuhan China to the Seattle Nursing Home in Washington state? How? What about the cruise ship floating outside San Francisco? Why were there so many Americans affected by the coronavirus in Diamond Princess? These only prove that the virus is everywhere in the USA, and started spreading much earlier than in Wuhan. China has locked down cities to stop its spread. The virus from China could not be spreading all over the world overnight.
Read the article below to have a better idea. Only one country that have the 5 strains of coronavirus and is just starting to test them in a very small way. If they could they would not want to test them, not wanting to know that the virus is all over the USA. The USA could be the breeding ground for all the coronavirus but blaming China for it to mislead the world that they are not to be blamed, they are innocent.
Who is not transparent, who is lying to the world about this coronavirus? Stop the white lie.

Japan, China and Taiwan Reports on the Origin of the Virus
The Western media quickly took the stage and laid out the official narrative for the outbreak of the new coronavirus which appeared to have begun in China, claiming it to have originated with animals at a wet market in Wuhan.
In fact the origin was for a long time unknown but it appears likely now, according to Chinese and Japanese reports, that the virus originated elsewhere, from multiple locations, but began to spread widely only after being introduced to the market.
More to the point, it appears that the virus did not originate in China and, according to reports in Japanese and other media, may have originated in the US....


Taiwan Virologist Suggests the Coronavirus Originated in the US
Then, Taiwan ran a TV news program on February,27,(click here to access video (Chinese), that presented diagrams and flow charts suggesting the coronavirus originated in the US. (6)....

One of his main points is that the type infecting Taiwan exists only in Australia and the US and, since Taiwan was not infected by Australians, the infection in Taiwan could have come only from the US.
The basic logic is that the geographical location with the greatest diversity of virus strains must be the original source because a single strain cannot emerge from nothing. He demonstrated that only the US has all the five known strains of the virus (while Wuhan and most of China have only one, as do Taiwan and South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, Singapore, and England, Belgium and Germany), constituting a thesis that the haplotypes in other nations may have originated in the US.
Korea and Taiwan have a different haplotype of the virus than China, perhaps more infective but much less deadly, which would account for a death rate only 1/3 that of China.
Neither Iran nor Italy were included in the above tests, but both countries have now deciphered the locally prevalent genome and have declared them of different varieties from those in China, which means they did not originate in China but were of necessity introduced from another source. It is worth noting that the variety in Italy has approximately the same fatality rate as that of China, three times as great as other nations, while the haplotype in Iran appears to be the deadliest with a fatality rate of between 10% and 25%. (7) (Cool (9)
Due to the enormous amount of Western media coverage focused on China, much of the world believes the coronavirus spread to all other nations from China, but this now appears to have been proven wrong. With about 50 nations scattered throughout the world having identified at least one case at the time of writing, it would be very interesting to examine virus samples from each of those nations to determine their location of origin and the worldwide sources and patterns of spread.
The Virologist further stated that the US has recently had more than 200 “pulmonary fibrosis” cases that resulted in death due to patients’ inability to breathe, but whose conditions and symptoms could not be explained by pulmonary fibrosis. He said he wrote articles informing the US health authorities to consider seriously those deaths as resulting from the coronavirus, but they responded by blaming the deaths on e-cigarettes, then silenced further discussion. …
The Taiwanese doctor then stated the virus outbreak began earlier than assumed, saying, “We must look to September of 2019”.
He stated the case in September of 2019 where some Japanese traveled to Hawaii and returned home infected, people who had never been to China. This was two months prior to the infections in China and just after the CDC suddenly and totally shut down the Fort Detrick bio-weapons lab claiming the facilities were insufficient to prevent loss of pathogens. (10) (11)
He said he personally investigated those cases very carefully (as did the Japanese virologists who came to the same conclusion).. This might indicate the coronavirus had already spread in the US but where the symptoms were being officially attributed to other diseases, and thus possibly masked.
The prominent Chinese news website Huanqiu related one case in the US where a woman’s relative was told by physicians he died of the flu, but where the death certificate listed the coronavirus as the cause of death. On February 26, ABC News affiliate KJCT8 News Network reported that a woman recently told the media that her sister died on from coronavirus infection. Montrose, Colorado resident Almeta Stone said, “They (the medical staff) kept us informed that it was the flu, and when I got the death certificate, there was a coronavirus in the cause of death.” (12)
We cannot ascertain the number of such cases in the US but since the CDC apparently has no reliable test kits and is conducting little or no testing for the virus, there may be others.
In the past two years (during the trade war) China has suffered several pandemics:

February 15, 2018: H7N4 bird flu. Sickened at least 1,600 people in China and killed more than 600. Many chickens killed. China needs to purchase US poultry products.
June, 2018: H7N9 bird flu. Many chickens killed. China needs to purchase US poultry products.
August, 2018: outbreak of African swine flu. Same strain as Russia, from Georgia. Millions of pigs killed. China needs to purchase US pork products.
May 24, 2019: massive infestation of armyworms in 14 province-level regions in China, which destroy most food crops. Quickly spread to more than 8,500 hectares of China’s grain production. They produce astonishing numbers of eggs. China needs to purchase US agricultural products – corn, soybeans.
December, 2019: Coronavirus appearance puts China’s economy on hold.
January, 2020: China is hit by a “highly pathogenic” strain of bird flu in Hunan province. Many chickens died, many others killed. China needs to purchase US poultry products.


The standard adage is that bad luck happens in threes, not sixes.

Covid19 - Still believing that this virus started in Wuhan, China?
So far we have found that this Covid19 is an exceptionally clean virus. It has displayed very special characteristics that are different from other viruses. Why did I say that it is a clean virus? Look at the chart below, only clean and rich countries are more badly affected by this virus than dirty filthy and polluted third world countries. This virus does not stand a chance to survive in third world polluted environment, rivers, drains and rubbish dumps.

European countries are their favourites, clean air, clean environment, can go to church, travel in cruises, eat in nice restaurants and shopping belts.

Back to the question whether this virus started its life in Wuhan, China. When it first started in Wuhan, no one knew about this virus until the Chinese identified and isolated it and reported to WHO. And one good thing, when it was spreading furiously the Chinese govt thought it necessary to impose an immediate lockdown to prevent it from spreading across China and also to the rest of the world.

China did this very effectively and it is now under control in China and new cases are getting lesser and lesser. China is confident that by end of Mar or April this virus would be contained and no more new cases originating from China.

Remember that the virus hit Wuhan, China just as the Chinese were preparing to celebrate Chinese New Year and were returning home. Some who were working in Wuhan were returning to their provinces. Chinese around the world were returning to China to roost, to be with their families. It was more a one way traffic, inflow rather than outflow though some Chinese were preparing to go overseas for holidays. This is a small minority.

China was able to contain the spread of the virus to its other provinces very quickly with very few cases reported and quickly stumped out. If this virus originated from Wuhan, China, then the spread to Chinese provinces would be big and quite widespread and those working in Wuhan would have brought them to their respective provinces. This was not the case, though some did.

If the virus could not spread widely across China, how did the virus spread to the rest of the world in such a short period of time if they originated from Wuhan, China? From recent experience and reports, the virus was found in every corner of the earth with many places that were not visited by anyone from China or people who had been to China especially in the USA, Europe and far corners of the earth. Does this ring a bell, that the viruses in these places did not come from China, very likely indigenous? The case in point are the nursing homes in the USA and many corners of America where people are infected with different variants of this virus. It cannot be that these viruses came from Wuhan, China.

The Americans and many countries did not know the existence of this virus and many infected persons were treated as flu or common cold. As they said, ignorance is bliss. Only when they are specifically tested for this virus with the new test kits that they are found to have it. The Wuhan virus might have affected some countries when there were people visiting both places. For countries far far away where no one from Wuhan, or visited Wuhan and returned, and still found the virus affecting their people, where did the virus come from? Many cases in the USA and Europe have absolutely no connection with Wuhan.

So, are the evil and mischievous Americans still smearing China, insisting that the virus originated from Wuhan, China and spread to them and to the rest of the world? Who is lying? Would the unthinking still stick to this white lie and blame China and Chinese for this virus?

There are empirical evidence that the virus in many countries did not come from China. And there are many cases of virus infections in the USA that did not come from China. How many would still believe in the American white lie?

Thus USA, stop playing the mischievous blame game! Your evil deeds are coming back to you.

PS. Western media continue to trumpet the Trump Administration lie that the virus came from Wuhan in today's Yahoo News by AP.



TRUMP OFFICIALS STRESS VIRUS ORIGINATED IN CHINA

Members of the Trump administration — on the defensive about how they have handled the coronavirus outbreak — are seeking to remind Americans that the coronavirus outbreak originated in China. They have repeatedly reminded people that the virus started in Wuhan, a city in China’s Hubei province, and they have faulted China's initial handling of the outbreak. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called it the “Wuhan coronavirus.” China stresses that it is trying to help the international community battle the virus, sending medical teams to countries that need help now that the crisis at home is waning.

Covid19 - The Americans have been lying, now admitting that the coronavirus have killed tens of thousands of Americans before Wuhan
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.globalresearch.ca/us-cdc-director-admitted-virus-deaths-miscategorized-flu/5706233/amp

US CDC LIED AND COVER UP DEATHS AS FLU. OVER 20,000 TO 40,000 DEATHS MIS CATEGORIZED????

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?

The US has been lying all along.

Robert Redfield, CDC director, testifying to Congress, today admitted that virus deaths have been miscategorised as the flu.

He also stated that the standard practice has been to first test people for the flu and, if the test is positive, they stop there. They don’t test for the coronavirus.
So Japan and Taiwan were correct. Many of the US deaths attributed to the flu were actually from the coronavirus.

One Senator asked Redfield if post-mortems were performed to learn the cause of death, and he stated that such were done, and they revealed mis-diagnoses.

The infections and deaths have been knowingly mis-categorised for months, and the CDC ‘strongly’ recommended that hospitals not test for the virus except as a last resort. It is not an accident that the US has no reliable tests. They don’t want to test. Blame everything on the flu.

And now all meetings and discussions on the virus are classified, and all public information must be first cleared through the White House.

Thank you, Virgo.

PS. The Americans are so irresponsible. They spread H1N1 to the world and now they are spreading Covid19 to the world and blamed it on China. The Americans owe China and people of the world an apology for this coverup and mischief.

Covid19 - Trump needs more time/notice to cope with the virus? Complacency or stupidity?
The rest of the world was caught unaware. At least we had some kind of preparation in place, which is why Singapore was so quick to respond in RATIONAL ways.

To the rest of the unprepared world, this is a Black Swan because to them a pandemic was not even on their radar; a true Unknown unknown.

Luck, the human race is quick to learn and pick up the pace once a "real signal" of present danger is detected.

Trump has been criticised for dropping the ball. Not in my calculus. America is a fumbling, bumbling individualistic culture, but they also learn very quickly and have tremendous resources which they can afford to throw at the situation. By Matilah Singapura


China reported the incident on 31 Dec 19 and followed up with the lockdown of Wuhan, Hubei. When these happened then, there were very few cases outside China. With the lockdown, the virus in China would not have a chance to get out, and with the 0 new cases in Wuhan today, it shows how effective was the lockdown in Wuhan. Less than 3 months and China was able to contain the virus in China.

The Chinese lockdown gave the world an early warning and bought time for every country to prepare for this. Tedros, head of WHO had been saying this from the very start. But the Americans and the West took no heed. They were smarting at the plight of the Chinese and every day accusing China for starting this virus and lack of transparency. Clown number one, Donald Trump was giggling as if nothing happened and nothing to worry about. Everything was under control in the US and did nothing. Today he is blaming China for being slow in telling the world about the virus. How much time does he need to be called enough time? This clown and his evil men were laughing and sneering at China's trouble without doing a thing other than making spiteful remarks about China. See who will have the last laugh.

China isolated and identified this virus for the world to take notice. The virus was all over the world but went unnoticed because no one was testing for it, no one knew about it. There is no chance that this virus could escape from China to spread all over the world in such a short time. There could be a few cases but not all, not the majority of the countries were infected from virus coming from China.

The virus was already there in these countries, especially the USA and Europe. During the crisis in China the Americans and the West were so happy and doing the blame game, that the virus originated from China. Their situation was the same as many countries today that have very few cases. But the more they test the more they will discovere, because the virus is there. The only difference is that they did not know, they did not test.

This virus was prevalent in the USA with many deaths and misdiagnosed as common flu. The Americans have the virus in their stockpile. They used to threaten to use it on Saddam Hussein. Clown Trump and his evil men still stick to their position that the virus came from China and China did not give them enough notice to fight this virus. If you hear what is coming from the USA, they are totally unprepared, did not do anything during the grace period offered by China to do something. They are gravely short of equipment and trained medical stuff to handle this crisis. The same thing is also happening in Europe. It appears not to be serious in many poorer countries not because the virus is not there, but they are not testing, did not have the test kits to do the testing.

The virus is waiting to explode in the USA, in the face of Clown Trump and his evil men and to the American public at large. Stop hiding the fact that the virus originated from ground zero in the USA and blaming on China.

Read this from Yahoo News reported on 20 Mar 20.


The Republican head of the Senate Intelligence Committee dumped stocks and warned donors of a looming disaster in February even as the White House played down the coronavirus threat, US media reported Thursday.

Senator Richard Burr, who receives almost daily briefings from the US intelligence community on threats to the country, himself wrote on the Fox News website on February 7 that the US government was "better prepared than ever" for the COVID-19 virus, assuring Americans that they were well-protected.

But as President Donald Trump repeatedly said the virus would not hit the United States hard, on February 13 Burr and his wife suddenly sold off at least $582,000 and as much as $1.6 million in stocks, according to the ProPublica media group, citing financial filings.

And two weeks after that, on the same day Trump was telling the public that the 15 cases reported could be the US peak, the North Carolina senator told a private gathering of wealthy donors that coronavirus was a threat like the 1918 Spanish Flu, which killed tens of millions, according to National Public Radio.

NPR obtained a recording in which Burr told the donors that they should curtail their travel, 15 days before Trump shocked the country with a ban on arrivals from Europe.

"There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history," he said on the recording.

"It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic."

As the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, Burr receives much of the same daily reporting on threats to the country that the White House gets, and so he would have been apprised of the government's internal predictions.

On February 26, the day before Burr met with donors, Trump assured the American public: "We're going very substantially down, not up" in the number of infected....
