Chicoms "Muzzled" Top Expert, Raise Death Toll

The Chinese Communist Government silenced one of the top experts on Coronaviruses when she sequenced the gene for the Wuhan virus and reported the virus could infect humans.  The Daily Mail (U.K.) reported on April 11:

A Chinese scientist who is the one of the world's leading experts on coronaviruses was 'muzzled' after unravelling the genetic composition of the new disease, which is crucial for developing diagnostic tests and vaccines.

The revelation will fuel fresh concerns over China's cover-up of the pandemic after it erupted in the city of Wuhan. Critics argue that Communist Party chiefs frustrated efforts to contain the outbreak before it exploded around the world.

At the centre of the new claims is Shi Zhengli, known as China's 'Bat Woman' after years spent on difficult virus-hunting expeditions in dank caves that have led to a series of important scientific discoveries.

The virologist was called back to her high-security laboratory in Wuhan at the end of last year after a mysterious new respiratory condition in the city was identified as a novel coronavirus – and within three days she completed its gene sequencing.

Their findings showed it was similar to SARS, a respiratory disease that sparked an epidemic in 33 countries after emerging from China in 2002.

Gao Yu, a Chinese journalist freed last week after 76 days of lockdown in Wuhan, said he spoke to Shi during his incarceration and revealed: 'We learned later her institute finished gene-sequencing and related tests as early as January 2 but was muzzled.'

The Mail on Sunday has learned that on that same day, Yanyi Wang, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, sent an email to staff and key officials ordering them not to disclose information on the disease. ...

In an online lecture last month, Shi Zhengli said her team found on January 14 that the new virus could infect people – six days before this fact was revealed by China.

On the same day, the World Health Organisation issued a tweet backing China's denials of human transmissions.

Shi's team released its data identifying the disease on January 23 on a scientific portal before publication the next month by the journal Nature.

It said the genomic sequence was 96 per cent identical to another virus they found in horseshoe bats in Yunnan.

Shi is a specialist in emerging diseases and has earned global acclaim for work investigating links between bats and coronaviruses, aided by expeditions to collect samples and swabs in the fetid cave networks of southern China.... Rest of article. 
The Chinese Communist government also got around to revising the death toll from the Wuhan virus.  The right-wing New York Times reported last week:

 China on Friday raised its coronavirus death toll by 50 percent in Wuhan, the city where the outbreak first emerged, amid accusations that the government had concealed the extent of the epidemic.

Officials placed the new tally at 3,869 deaths from the coronavirus in the central Chinese city, an increase of 1,290 from the previous figure. The number of cumulative confirmed infections in the city was also revised upward to 50,333, an increase of 325... Rest of article.

Does anyone actually believe those numbers?

Have any reputable news sources reported this or just daily mail? I just took a look at their website and it appears to be primarily cheap celebrity gossip.

WHO noted a cluster of the virus on Dec. 30th according to Lancet.

China announced new virus isolated on Jan 3.

The gene sequencing data was first published in China on January 10th.

The WHO confirmed immediately on January 10th

The first person with symptoms later confirmed to be coronavirus 19 appeared Dec.1.
The first symptom of the dangerous pneumonia was Dec.10th.

The first hospital admission was was Dec.16th according to Lancet.

It is possible the first case may have happened as early as Nov 19th.

CDC noted with management incident report and travel warning on January 7th

WHO issued alert/warning January 9th

Controversial WHO tweet was January 14th when they couldn't confirm "human to human" contact from Chinese data ( ie. only could confirm those who ate meat from market)

Throughout WHO issued situation reports as they received information from various countries.

IF the virus had turned out not to be human to human contagious but only gotten by eating wild game and WHO or governments over-reacted, we'd be angry then as well and it would be political fodder.

My family members cancelled trips in January (even within the U.S.) and we began to take measures to protect ourselves...constant hand cleansing and avoiding crowds and those who had recently travelled. People were travelling ( I knew some) so the virus could and would travel with them. One doesn't have to be an epidemiologist to figure that out.

If our political leaders didn't heed warnings or bother to stop international travel from ALL countries sooner and quarantine every American returning ( not assuming discipline or thoughtfulness of others on their part) it's because it was an election year and they thought doing so would make them unpopular. No cases would make them appear foolish rather than brilliant to a public they see as undereducated and easily manipulated. The mantra would be that we'd not have gotten it here anyway. They also knew ( and apparently still believe) that their constituency believes only what it wants to be true and is incompetent to follow instructions.

Those of you who still get your information from politically biased outlets or the internet rather than to research for yourselves are hopelessly naïve. Those of you who believe God will protect you had best hope God doesn't think He's already given you the means to protect yourselves and others.

Most of the people in Mississippi seem to support authoritarian, misinformation spreading government, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Fox, and - I don't know how this is even possible - the even more tin foil hatted OAN are modeled after and identical to state TV in oppressive regimes around the world.

When we're doing a trade deal with them, it's just "China." When we're propagandizing it's "the Chinese Communist Government."

I'll be sorely disappointed if Trump/Congress doesn't force U.S. companies to drastically reduce trade with China. Bring those jobs back here and open up those factories. We have entirely too much cheap crap made available through money hungry companies like Walmart, Target, etc. People who really cannot afford it are taking too much of their limited income and spending it on Chinese made electronics instead of paying the rent or mortgage. We need to get back to the days when someone would ask - "Why don't you have such n such". And the reply would be "I just can't afford it".

This virus didn't come from a Lab in Wuhan, China.
The RNA & proteins that makeup the virus has no man made qualities.
The virus hijacks normal cells & turns the host cell into reproduction factories.

10:40 dream on, buying from the Chinese for electronics, is like using illegal aliens to process chickens no one in the U.S. would be able to afford either if they only used US citizens to make the stuff or process the chickens.

americans have very short memories. in the 1970s this country became dependent on stinking muslim countries and arab kings for our oil. and look how that turned out.
a mere 35 years later we become dependent on the stinking chinese communist party for our manufacturing. same problem , and look how that has turned out for us.
we never seem to learn our lesson.
allowing this country to become dependent on the likes of such a communist government and filthy arabs is a recipe for disaster.
and now you got your disaster. how do you like it?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
