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.

This may explain why voter turn-out was reported as low. Dw.com quotes lRl leadeship as estimating the turnout at ~50%. Much lower that the usual 60-66%.

Not sure yet.  I heard it's around 53%

If true, twice before parliamentary election turnouts were lower than this. 51%&52%

An interview of Wang Huiyao[Henry] (PhD) President of China and Globalization and gov't advisor (bio here: https:en.ccg.org.cn/html/about/2329.html ) on PBS G-Zero World said that one reason C0VlD-19 spread as it did initially is because China "was on Lunar New Year".

Good Point.

As I watch the news about this global pestilence, from here in America, and the stock markets barely react, we go on with our lives as in the days of Noah, when people were marrying and giving in marriage until God shut the doors of the ark and it began to rain.

I, for one, am excited that these events may be part of the warning signs, the birth pangs, of Jesus' return to this Earth. We may be witnessing the end of human history as it has, until now, been known. 

The last book of the Christian Bible, Revelation, says there will be a scroll with seven seals; seven trumpets; four beasts; three angels; seven angels with seven plagues; and seven golden bowls. (excerpts below)

7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!"
8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the Earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with PESTILENCE and by wild beasts of the Earth. - Revelation 6:7-8

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book,
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen. - Revelation 22:18-21

@MartyS  

ln the 50s and as kids we'd ask about these things, we were told that every generation carries the same view. 0ne example l remember is/was an old great aunt who died back then, who thought that in the 1890s --according to my grandmother-- and her mother,too.

0ne to consider is earthquakes and volcanoes-- since Krakatoa's eruption in 1883, the known historical record from before then shows we are currently in a "geological quiet era".

Plagues have always been around. Some man-made from poor sanatation. Look up Black Death as it still around.

There is no evidence -yet- that this coronavirus conforms to (Sunni) hadith --l do not know what Shi'a have.

China to cooperate with Iran to defeat coronavirus

Tehran, Feb 22, IRNA - China Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Saturday that China will cooperate with Iran to defeat coronavirus epidemic. He appreciated Iranian government aid to China in campaign against coronavirus epidemic.

"China closely follows the COVID-19 situation in Iran and expresses condolences over the passing of the two patients," Shuang said addressing his regular daily briefing.

"In this fight against the virus, China and Iran have been standing firmly together," he added.

"The Iranian government and people provided China with valuable support and help, and Foreign Minister Zarif was the first foreign minister who publicly voiced support for China."

"China will maintain close communication, coordination and cooperation with Iran to defeat the epidemic as soon as possible and safeguard the health of our two peoples and global public health security."

The National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China has allocated 60 billion Yuan ($8.7b) for fighting coronavirus.

The finding of live virus particles in stool specimens indicates a fecal-oral route for coronavirus, which may be why it’s caused outbreaks on cruise ships with an intensity often seen with gastro-causing norovirus, which also spreads along that pathway. More than 600 Covid-19 infections were confirmed among passengers and crew aboard the Diamond Princess, the ship quarantined for two weeks in Yokohama, Japan.

Spokesman: Gov’t Opens Counter-Coronavirus HQ

Quote

Tehran (FNA)- Iran’s Government Spokesman Ali Rabiyee announced that a headquarters has been set up to take due measures to counter the outbreak of coronavirus epidemic.
“The government with its full capacity and sensitivity will follow up anti-coronavirus measures,” Ali Rabiyee posted on his Twitter page.

He noted that according to President Hassan Rouhani's order, counter-coronavirus headquarters sessions will be attended by ministers of health, tourism and road, as well as representative of the General Staff of Iran's Armed Forces at the Ministry of Health and Medical Education.

“Since the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus from China, the Iranian government took due measures on borders, meanwhile, the country now needs to adopt broader measures as two cases of deaths have been confirmed in Qom, 140 km to South of Tehran,” the spokesman said.

In line with anti-coronavirus measures, religious schools in Qom were closed on Thursday.

Rabiyee called on the people to pay attention to the Health Ministry's advice and cooperate with the government to fight the virus.

In a relevant development, a session focusing on decisions about the fight against the deadly coronavirus was held at the Ministry of Health and Medical Education on Thursday morning.

Disappointing answer:

"Going into a Phase 1 trial does not mean you have a vaccine," Fauci said. "It means you have taken the first step towards the vaccine, which by anybody's calculation is going to be at least a year to a year and a half at best, and that is if we proceed under the emergency authorization of the regulatory agencies."

https://abcnews.go.com/Health/health-experts-warn-life-saving-coronavirus-vaccine-years/story?id=69032902

 

It gets worse:

Quote

"You could find yourself where you have a vaccine candidate in a year and half, a year and three quarters, but it takes another year to scale up to get enough doses to be meaningful to anyone," Fauci said.

Coronovirus was clearly planned imo. There's some weird stuff being revealed and it all can't be a coincidence.

I kinda agree, my parents were having a discussion about this. And the reason makes sense in the first place, because it coincidentally occured whilst the US was pressuring China's economy.

 

Unfortunately I cannot find the source, but a few weeks ago, it was on one of the Arab channels my family were watching that apparently some reporter has stated that the virus was found somewhere in the US Embassy.

Then you also have a bunch of other researchers who say that all these conspiracies are false and only trying to create fear.

Yeah I've heard that too and there is some trutH imo.

It's actually called "predictive programming". Whenever an event like this is planned, they hide the evidence in popular media such as novels, tv shows etc. The thing is that after people don't question it much and will think it's just a coincidence. 

There's a novel which was published in 1981 and it predicted this virus in 2020 and in the city of Wuhan. I'll share the pictures of it. It's actually crazy how it's all planned. I'm not a fan of concpiracy theories but I'm certain many people knew about this virus well before. Even the cartoon 'Simpsons' made an indirect reference to it - well not sure if it was talking about coronovirus but gives us something to think about.

I’ve watched the clip myself, and I don’t think it was related to the corona virus. It was probably referring to either SARS or Ebola
