Re: Outbreak of Unidentified Coronavirus In China as New Year Approaches

The UK measures against coronavirus are not serious enough, according to France and the EU. There are concerns that untested Britons continue to travel overseas.

France has warned it may start turning travellers from Britain away unless the UK adopts a similar near-total lockdown to those in place in other European countries.

With EU governments including Italy, Spain and France requiring citizens to stay at home to curb the coronavirus, and Rome threatening to tighten restrictions further, the French prime minister, Édouard Philippe, has said that if the UK does not follow suit soon, arrivals from Britain could be refused entry.

“Everyone in the EU must adopt logical methods and processes to fight against the epidemic,” Philippe said. “It’s obvious that if neighbouring states like the UK leave it too long, we would have difficulty allowing British citizens who are moving freely around their country to come to France.”

France, which has reported 9,134 confirmed cases and 264 deaths, on Monday closed all non-essential shops and ordered people not go out unless to do essential shopping, travel to a job that cannot be done from home, visit the doctor or take brief exercise.

First vaccine trial started yesterday.
A number of vaccines are being worked on but as far as i can figure this is indeed the first time used by humans.

And if it works China can then steal the recipe, inoculate it's own citizens, stick two fingers up at the intellectual property rights and we westerners will be stupid enough to get them to produce it for us because it is cheaper

It is high time we stopped letting China take the piss and that starts, may I suggest, with letting them educate their own children instead of buying up spaces in our universities and ramping up the international student costs to an unaffordable level for very bright kids from poorer countries. Let's see just how smart they are then.

Oh, and tell Huawei to fuck off too, Mr Johnson (great job Boris!)

As both sides expel journalists, a new US-China Cold War is upon us

Beijing is scrambling for strategies to assuage the coming anger

Donald Trump has taken China's bait by expelling journalists

A deep freeze is creeping over US-Chinese relations - it will not be pretty


Bill Bishop, publisher of the Sinocism newsletter, has written that “I can not think of a more dangerous time in the US-China relationship in the last 40 years, and the carnage from the coronavirus has barely begun in the US”.

Worth 5 minutes of your time...

In case you have any doubts about this being a human engineered virus watch this if you have the intellectual capacity to understand what you are witnessing.

as to whether it came from the lab
where they were miss-handling all the bats they'd been collecting to research cv strains
that's another story

Coronavirus: California issues 'stay at home' order amid virus
32 minutes ago

California has issued a "stay at home" order to residents as it tries to stem the march of the coronavirus across the most populous US state.

Governor Gavin Newsom told Californians they should only leave their homes when necessary during the pandemic.

He earlier estimated more than half of the 40 million people in his state would contract Covid-19 in just the next two months.

The virus has claimed 205 lives in the US and infected more than 14,000.

Globally nearly 250,000 patients have tested positive for the respiratory illness and almost 9,900 have died.

Governor Newsom said on Thursday evening: "This is a moment we need to make tough decisions. We need to recognise reality."

His order will allow residents to leave their homes to buy groceries or medicine, or walk a dog or take exercise, but seeks to limit public interactions.

It will force businesses deemed non-essential to close, while allowing others including grocery stores, pharmacies, banks and petrol stations to stay open.

Coronavirus deaths in Italy overtake China as economic damage mounts
Guy Faulconbridge, James Mackenzie

7 Min Read

LONDON/MILAN (Reuters) - The world’s richest nations poured unprecedented aid into the global economy on Thursday as coronavirus cases ballooned in the new epicentre Europe, with the number of deaths in Italy outstripping those in mainland China, where the virus originated.

With over 242,000 infections and nearly 10,000 deaths, the epidemic has stunned the world and drawn comparisons with painful periods such as World War Two, the 2008 financial crisis and the 1918 Spanish flu.

U.N. chief Antonio Guterres warned that a global recession, “perhaps of record dimensions”, was a near certainty.

“This is a moment that demands coordinated, decisive, and innovative policy action from the world’s leading economies,” Guterres told reporters via a video conference. “We are in an unprecedented situation and the normal rules no longer apply.”

Tourism and airlines have been particularly battered, as the world’s citizens hunker down to minimize contact and curb the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 respiratory illness. But few sectors have been spared by a crisis threatening a lengthy global recession.

The United States is urging Americans not to travel abroad at all and could announce restrictions at the U.S.-Mexican border on Friday. They would be similar to the closure of the U.S.-Canada border to non-essential traffic.

Markets have suffered routs unseen since the 2008 financial debacle, with investors rushing to the U.S. dollar as a safe haven. Wall Street tried to bounce back on Thursday. The benchmark S&P 500 .SPX closed up 0.5%, still around 30% off highs reached last month. U.S. oil prices posted their largest one-day gain ever, rising 25%. [.N] [O/R]

Policymakers in the United States, Europe and Asia have slashed interest rates and opened liquidity taps to try to stabilise economies hit by quarantined consumers, broken supply chains, disrupted transport and paralysed businesses.

The virus, thought to have originated from wildlife in mainland China late last year, has jumped to 172 other nations and territories with more than 20,000 new cases reported in the past 24 hours - a new daily record.

Cases in Germany, Iran and Spain rose to more than 12,000 each. An official in Tehran tweeted that the coronavirus was killing one person every 10 minutes.
