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

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

From the Cambodian Police facebook page: 8:08pm, 27 January 2020.
On the night of January 27, 2020 at a press conference of the Ministry of Health of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Minister of Health has announced the first recorded case of the new strain of the corona virus (2019-nCoV) in Cambodia.

A 60-year-old Chinese male patient, who traveled from Wuhan to Sihanoukville with three family members, was tested positive for the virus by the Pasteur Institute on 27 January.

The man developed symptoms, such as fever and a runny nose, on 25 January and was tested on the 26th. The three other Chinese nationals traveling with the infected man have tested negative.

i think its safe to say,many don't have much faith in what the chinese goverment is putting out
BUT
who can you trust nowadays?
In the morning on January 25, a recorded audio clip on WeChat went viral on social media. It was from a terrified and uncontrollably crying-female nurse from a hospital in Wuhan, conversing with her friend back home.

“The infection is much more horrible than it has reported on television. There are too many cases. Doctors estimated about 100,000 infected people. Each doctor has to treat more than 100 patients in a day. Many people, however, could not make it (died) – not enough hospital beds and medical supplies. Patients are begging us desperately, but we couldn’t do anything. They are dying in front of our eyes. We are all breaking down. I can’t take this anymore.”

Many leaked video clips, allegedly from different hospitals in Wuhan, have shown patients in hospitals left to lay down on floors with corpses next to them. “Doctors have been breaking down and desperately complaining about the inaction of the government and many nurses are nearly gone crazy,” said an anonymous hospital management person in Wuhan.

However, the China Daily, the government mouthpiece, reported: “There are only 1, 287 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus pneumonia and 41 deaths.” The same newspaper also announced that 38 infected patients had successfully been cured and discharged from hospital.
For China, the security of the communist party is far important than the wellbeing of its netizens, especially during a time like this. The government is facing a severe problem of economic stagnation and ideological backlash from Western countries. So, it could be, perhaps, reasonable for Chinese leaders to cover up one’s weaknesses as much as possible to the cost of the ordinary people.

What we know so far.

According to the patient's history, he and his family traveled to Wuhan to Sihanoukville on January 23, 2020 and developed symptoms on January 25, 2020 with fever and runny nose and nausea. The above four people are from Wuhan, the People's Republic of China, and arrived in Cambodia on a direct flight from Wuhan to Sihanoukville International Airport on January 23, 2020 at about 7:00 am.

After arriving in Sihanoukville, they took a taxi ride to the Independence Hotel where they spent two nights. The party of four then arrived at the Queenco Hotel on the afternoon of January 25, 2020. That afternoon, the virus carrier, Jia Jianhua played at the casino tables for two hours and got a fever.

After receiving information from HE Kouch Chamroeun, Governor of Preah Sihanouk province on January 26, 2020, provincial authorities, together with the Director of the Provincial Health Department, as well as emergency responders of Preah Sihanouk Provincial Health Department went to find the case above at the Queenco Casino. The Sihanoukville health team then took the samples in accordance with the technical guidelines recommended by the Ministry of Health on the same day and sent samples from the nose and throat of the four individuals for analysis at the Pasteur Institute laboratory in Phnom Penh.

I see more and more chinese bashing on the french social networks. "Die all with your f****** virus!!", "When you see what they eat, it's normal they get these kind of virus", etc... people get loose and talk without restraint. They share videos of chinese market, video of the bat soup and other videos. But here in France we only have 3 confirmed cases and 0 death.

In France the Journal Picard made his first page "Yellow alert" and inside an editorial titled "Yellow peril".

probably not this reporter, who i think is tibetan?
if so, i empathize, and he's right about sinicization and worse

but the 2019-nCov armageddon claims are surely baloney, at this point at least
although china did indeed fail to contain it early
there are quite a few eyes on this situation now

As was expected, in Cambodia we have the first corona virus infected Chinese individual in Chinkville, erm ... Sihanoukville.
How long before all gatherings in Chinaville - erm ... Sihanoukville - are prohibited, incl. casino gatherings?

Then, not only online gambling but also getting together for gambling is forbidden. Result: no business whatsoever for the Chinks in YellowFeverVille - erm ... Kampong Saom - so they'll all leave. At least there's something positive coming out of this virus panic!!!

Bye, bye baby, baby yellow, please go back to your 'culture' of gutter oil, eating bats, and spitting like there's no tomorrow. Please keep your filthy habits inside your 'culture', don't export the shit!

No masks despite the top experts in the world saying wear a mask.

As stated previously MIsh is no soft guy, but his family are ordered stay inside.

They are not gonna lock down more than the population of the UK unless for a damn good reason.

1. Jia Jianhua, 60, male
2. Wang Ling Wang Jen (Lingzhen) 57-year-old female
3. Xiao Yan, 38,
4. Jia Ruixuan, 33,

According to patient history, he and his family left for Sihanoukville on January 23, and he had symptoms of fever on Jan 25, 2020.
They arrived from the People’s Republic of China on a direct flight from the city of Wuhan.
They arrived at Preah Sihanouk International Airport on January 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm. After arriving in Sihanoukville, they took a taxi ride to the Independence Hotel. Then he went to play cards at the Queenco Hotel on the afternoon of January 25th .
That afternoon, Jiang Hour played in the casino for two hours.
Coming down with a fever, his wife, Wang Ling, phoned his family in China and told them that her husband was sick. She received information to call authorities.

"Top experts"? Where? They don't say that. Masks are totally ineffective against viruses, and on top of that it's 1 case in Chinksville, whereas this press conference was in Phnom Penh.

But, to be honest, I'll never wear a mask, not even when there are 1000 cases in Phnom Penh. Because, totally ineffective.
