OPINE: We Do Not Need These Kinds of Pejorative Press

Three Wall Street Journal journalists have had their press credentials revoked in response to a WSJ article insulting to China. https://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-02/19/c_138799073.htm  . The article entitle "China is the Real Sick Man of Asia" is a belittling of the PRC's initial efforts dealing with a new novel-coronavirus-2019 of which nothing was clinically known, how this will maybe affect financial markets (all written in a pontificating way -ed.) and then ends with a 'prediction' that China is a harbinger of more problems in the future. Context can be found here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sick_man_of_Asia .

The original article is here:  https://www.wsj.com/articles/china-is-the-real-sick-man-of-Asia-11580773677 

ADDED: The US State Dep't had declared 5 Chinese media companies as "state entities" and has placed restrictions on them.  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-china-media/u-s-imposes-new-rules-on-state-owned-chinese-media-over-propaganda-concerns-idUSKBN20C2G1

2,122 Deaths

75,660 Confirmed Cases of which 12,061 are serious or critical

57,196 Curently lnfected Patients

16,342 Recoveries

Elsewhere: several media and gov't outlets are describing Japan's quarantine as "failure" from bureaucratic bumbling (a polite way of writing it). As note before, Japan is infected. Also, there are several known carriers that show no symptoms or showed no symptoms for three and four weeks.

I hope Wudu Chambers don't turn into incubators of the this virus.

 

They should distribute a lot of bleach.

Crunching a few numbers from above:

From 05Feb to today, 19Feb20:

Cases have increased from 23,906 tripling to 75,660

Recoveries have increaed from 1,030  to 16,342, a 15.8 rate

While Current cases are about level from 14Feb at 57,303 to 19Feb at 57,146 with a high of 58,789 on 17Feb

These are Worldwide numbers yet China is 99% of the statistics, so "improving" conditions are do to Chinese efforts.

Dr.. Fauci of NIH said on PBS News Hour 19Feb that while this dip in the numbers is encouraging, it is both too soon to tell, and that he is concerned about "anecdotal" cases of non-symptommatic individuals carrying the virus around for weeks beyond the 14 day quarantine times.

Also two dead in Iran from corona virus.

They are the same.

Two men died 4 days ago, both over 70, samples were taken for test posthumously.

Confirmation tests to be carried out.

Actually it’s 5, just now I saw it in the news. I think 4 died in Qom and 1 in arak, that’s what the new say. They closed the school and universities as well.

Iraq has initiated blocks on the border crossings with Iran. Good step. Now Iraq should stop air travel with people from Qom (or any other infected cities, if there are more) until Iran is confirmed to have the outbreak isolated and under control.  

I hope Iran co-operates well with Iraq on this issue.

There are two groups of countries in the world at the moment.

Those which are advanced/organised/thorough enough to test for it are finding it.

Those which don't have the capability aren't.

Which group should we be scared of?

Good, apparently air travel between Iran and Iraq is suspended.

South  Korea (RoK)  "flares" is a better word than "explodes"

The Koreas and PRC have agreed to share info and cooperate as well as with ASEAN members.

C0VlD-19 is spreading in Japan; 

NOTE: These are the 2nd, 3rd and 5th largest economies in the World.

This virus is a "moving target" -difficult to study and treat patients at the same time: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/20200220_37 

China has changed its diagnosis method again.

So money is a big deal for it too.

Btw, what if it spreads through currency notes. It will really go around.

@Sumerian

What if the virus makes its way into your country through a member of some other nation? Its quite possible.

 

It is possible. That's why you ban travel from every country where there's an uncontrolled outbreak, like China, Japan, South Korea and possibly even Jordan.
