There is only one virus and it was 'imported' from China. All the rest is noise.

4) There seems to be evidence/data that shows countries with large scale tuberculosis vaccination have a lower death rate from the new coronavirus. Again, that doesn’t necessarily explain why there are less cases, but it does explain why perhaps some cases are very mild and therefore don’t get tested and picked up.
I agree with most of your theories, but I'm not so sure about this one. I also saw this widely reported in the British press, alongside stories that the UK was likely to have the highest number of deaths in the whole of the EU. Considering that everyone of my generation was given this BCG jab, I thought there more than a little contradiction in the two stories.

"Experiment Shows COVID-19 Can Survive Long Exposure to High Temperatures"
"Previous theories about warmer weather kicking the novel coronavirus to the curb have been further discredited after the Saturday publication of the French research paper “Evaluation of heating and chemical protocols for inactivating SARS-CoV-2” on bioRxiv."
"
Researchers also highlighted that this “evidence of seasonality” is also not found in other, similar respiratory illnesses, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)."

I like the "WhuFlu". That could stick.

Coronavirus: US to halt funding to WHO, says Trump
2 hours ago
US President Donald Trump says he has instructed his administration to halt funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).

He said the WHO had "failed in its basic duty" in its response to the coronavirus outbreak.

He accused the UN body of mismanaging and covering up the spread of the virus after it emerged in China, and said it must be held accountable.

Mr Trump has previously accused the WHO of being biased towards China.

The US president has himself come under criticism at home over his handling of the outbreak

President Trump accused the WHO of having failed to adequately assess the outbreak when it first emerged in the city of Wuhan.

"Had the WHO done its job to get medical experts into China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and to call out China's lack of transparency, the outbreak could have been contained at its source with very little death," he told reporters.

"This would have saved thousands of lives and avoided worldwide economic damage. Instead, the WHO willingly took China's assurances to face value... and defended the actions of the Chinese government."

White House reporters pointed out, however, that Mr Trump himself praised China's response to the outbreak and downplayed the danger of the virus at home.

How China Deceived the WHO

Back in January, when the pandemic now consuming the world was still gathering force, a Berkeley research scientist named Xiao Qiang was monitoring China’s official statements about a new coronavirus then spreading through Wuhan and noticed something disturbing. Statements made by the World Health Organization, the international body that advises the world on handling health crises, often echoed China’s messages. “Particularly at the beginning, it was shocking when I again and again saw WHO’s [director-general], when he spoke to the press … almost directly quoting what I read on the Chinese government’s statements,” he told me.

WHO's bastard-boss (aethiopian) is guilty of 1000's of warcrimes he committed in Aethiopia and Erithrea years ago and this is NO FAKE NEWS.
He's paid by China, everybody knows. US-government is now looking into it! and the role of WHO in the beginning of the crisis.

This study suggests that the practice of social distancing may have to be continued for another year or more in the US to contain the coronavirus. As social animals, could we survive this ? And what would it do to society and solidarity ?

U.S. may need to extend social distancing for virus until 2022, study says

2 Min Read

(Reuters) - The United States may need to endure social distancing measures adopted during the coronavirus outbreak until 2022, according to researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health.

The study comes as more than 2,200 people died in the United States from the outbreak on Tuesday, a record, according to a Reuters tally, even as the country debated how to reopen its economy. The overall death toll in the U.S. from the virus stands at more than 28,300 as of Tuesday.

“Intermittent distancing may be required into 2022 unless critical care capacity is increased substantially or a treatment or vaccine becomes available”, the Harvard researchers said in findings published Tuesday in the journal Science.

Giving examples of South Korea and Singapore, the researchers wrote that effective distancing could reduce the strain on healthcare systems and enable contact tracing and quarantine to be feasible.

The study acknowledged that prolonged distancing would most likely have profoundly negative economic, social, and educational consequences.

Keep the fear ingrained until vaccine starts selling. Brilliant.
