    In Wuhan, Hubei. Interesting that the outbreak occurs in the same location as a premier virus research laboratory in China, one which in recent years has done a lot of research on coronaviruses and how they infect cells. It may be a research strain that simply leaked by accident due to incompetence, yet commentators dismiss this as a "conspiracy theory" to suggest it is a bioweapon when that is completely irrelevant.

    The UK Only Realised "In The Last Few Days" That Its Coronavirus Strategy Would "Likely Result In Hundreds of Thousands of Deaths"

    Scientists advising the government say an aggressive new approach adopted to attempt to "suppress" the virus may have to be in place for 18 months.

    The UK only realised "in the last few days" that attempts to "mitigate" the impact of the coronavirus pandemic would not work, and that it needed to shift to a strategy to "suppress" the outbreak, according to a report by a team of experts who have been advising the government.

    The report, published by the Imperial College COVID-19 Response Team on Monday night, found that the strategy previously being pursued by the government — dubbed "mitigation" and involving home isolation of suspect cases and their family members but not including restrictions on wider society — would "likely result in hundreds of thousands of deaths and health systems (most notably intensive care units) being overwhelmed many times over".

    The mitigation strategy "focuses on slowing but not necessarily stopping epidemic spread — reducing peak healthcare demand while protecting those most at risk of severe disease from infection", the report said, reflecting the UK strategy that was outlined last week by Boris Johnson and the chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance.

    But the approach was found to be unworkable. "Our most significant conclusion is that mitigation is unlikely to be feasible without emergency surge capacity limits of the UK and US healthcare systems being exceeded many times over," perhaps by as much as eight times, the report said.

    In this scenario, the Imperial College team predicted as many as 250,000 deaths in Britain.

    "In the UK, this conclusion has only been reached in the last few days," the report explained, due to new data on likely intensive care unit demand based on the experience of Italy and Britain so far.

    "We were expecting herd immunity to build. We now realise it’s not possible to cope with that," professor Azra Ghani, chair of infectious diseases epidemiology at Imperial, told journalists at a briefing on Monday night.

    Belgium: Surgical masks ordered for migrants but not Belgians; Turkish mask supplier defrauds government



    The Belgian government ordered surgical masks for the Klein Kasteeltje center for asylum-seekers in Brussels a month ago, at the same time that it was telling Belgians that they only needed to wash their hands to protect themselves from COVID-19, or the coronavirus.

    Belgium’s Health Minister, Maggie De Block, is also the Secretary of State for Asylum and Migration. De Block placed an order for surgical masks for the migrant center in the amount of 30,000 euros, according to a report from SCEPTR.

    At the same time, De Block and virologist Marc Van Ranst were telling Belgians in television interviews not to panic, because just washing one’s hands was enough to prevent a coronavirus infection.

    As of Sunday, Belgium has reported nearly 1,100 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection, and Belgium’s medical staff are suffering from a shortage of masks.

    To deal with the emergency, last week the Belgian government placed an order for 5 million surgical masks from a company in Turkey that were supposed to be delivered by Sunday at the latest. In yet another government failure, the masks never arrived, and De Block admitted today that they had been defrauded by their Turkish supplier, and that chances were “minimal” that they would ever receive any, according to another report by SCEPTR.

    Given this situation, Belgium has a real crisis on its hands now, as it currently only has 500,000 masks in stock. As an emergency measure the government has requested that private citizens with extra masks donate them to the hospitals.

    The fact that Belgium thought of the safety of migrants before that of its own citizens is ironic, especially since, as Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recently pointed out, immigration is what brought the coronavirus to Europe in the first place, as reported by Voice of Europe.

    Migrants Are a Coronavirus Weapon

    While the news was filled with stories about Costco lines, Europe and Turkey edged to the brink of war with the Islamist dictatorship sending armored vehicles and heavily armed police forces to attack the Greek border and aid Muslim migrants in their invasion.

    Meanwhile, Greece is already full of migrants and they’re a huge coronavirus risk.

    Medical charity Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has urged Greece to immediately evacuate migrants from overcrowded camps on its islands due to a high risk of the coronavirus spreading swiftly among people living in squalid conditions.

    Greece reported its first fatality from the virus on Thursday, in the town of Patra on the mainland. It has confirmed 117 cases of coronavirus so far, including one on the island of Lesbos, where the notorious Moria camp is located.

    This adds another blackmail card to the stacked deck. If the camps remain in place, they become a breeding ground for a massive outbreak. If they’re broken up, not only do they risk carrying the disease deep into Europe, but the usual sexual assaults, gang violence, and acts of terrorism will follow in their wake.

    America has the same problem.

    Detained populations, whether criminals or migrants, are potential breeding zones for outbreaks. Lefties are already demanding a massive jailbreak for the prison population to head off a coronavirus outbreak. And the same obviously goes for migrants.

    Either you free them and they kill you. Or you keep them locked up and they become the epicenter of an epidemic.

    This is why the middle ground doesn’t work.

    Either you maintain border security or you lose everything.

    And of course, it's not rocket science:

    Coronavirus Panic Buying Puts Grocery Workers and Shoppers at Risk of Infection

    Braving grocery store crowds when you’re already stocked up puts you at risk of getting sick or infecting others, including elderly workers and others who have no choice but to be there.

    I grew up in Miami, where swarming the grocery store before a hurricane was a near-annual ritual. We packed our carts and waited in long lines, but there was certainty, at least in that very moment, that we were safe. The storm had not yet arrived. It was still on the TV screen, a disc spinning slowly in the ocean, behind a cone of uncertainty that meant we might not get hit at all.

    Now, we’re shopping in the middle of a hurricane we cannot see. The incubation period for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is two to 14 days. Experts have predicted some hospitals could start becoming overwhelmed by next week. This means a good number of those future patients are possibly infected right now, unaware, the virus incubating in their bodies and spreading.

    It’s why governors across the country have closed bars and restaurants. But grocery stores remain open. So we’re maneuvering past one another in crowded aisles and fighting over frozen food. We’re waiting in snaking lines and exchanging money with tired cashiers, who say they have been working for six days straight and have never seen so many customers in their lives.

    Some people can’t afford to buy the recommended two to three weeks of supplies at once, and they have no choice but to keep venturing out. But others are loading up on everything they need, then being tempted, by pictures of empty shelves, to run back to the store for more. Epidemiologists and doctors have been warning the public for days that braving crowds for any reason is a gamble; if a trip isn’t essential, they say, don’t risk getting yourself sick or infecting others, including store workers who have no choice but to be there.

    Some of those workers have contacted ProPublica in the past few days; they’re scared. We’re withholding their names, because some spoke out against their employers and others didn’t reach out to be interviewed but were just desperate for advice.

    Reporter Caroline Chen got a call from a very worried woman in the Seattle area on Thursday night. She was working at a grocery store not far from where an Amazon employee had tested positive. She was elderly, in the “at risk” demographic being urged to stay home. But she was stuck working the cash register as people panic-shopped all around her. She had no paid sick leave and said she needed the job to pay rent.

    She noted that Washington Gov. Jay Inslee had announced that anyone who got sick, or was instructed to self-quarantine because of a confirmed exposure, would be compensated. But that meant she had to wait until she got sick. She was at a loss for options, she said. “I just want to go home now.”

    Two days later, Chen heard from another grocery store employee in the Atlanta area who had similar concerns — not about herself but about her older co-workers. “I work with one elderly gentleman who works four days a week because he can’t afford to retire, but his health won’t let him work more than that.” She said management didn’t want cashiers to wear gloves, saying it would “scare” customers.

    I spoke with a woman who works at a big chain grocery store in Kentucky, who said on Sunday that though the company was assuring customers they could use disinfecting wipes on their carts, there were none available. Staff was stretched so thin, no one was wiping down shelves. “My main concern is the sheer amount of people coming in,” she said. “Seeing people buy food that would last them a couple of weeks is way different from what I’m seeing now. People are buying ridiculous amounts of stuff. … People are making multiple trips.”

    You don’t need to panic-buy, said the mayor of Los Angeles, and county commissioners in Las Vegas, and the governor of Utah, and the president of the United States. Food suppliers and retailers told The New York Times that while they’re scrambling to keep up with demand, their supply chain remains strong.

    Those who sell food are keenly aware of the risk of transmission. Stores are cutting hours to allow employees to restock and clean. Food delivery services have set up no-contact drop-offs, in which the driver leaves the order without interaction.

    If you need to venture out, minimize your risk, said Caitlin Rivers, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, whose research focuses on improving public health preparedness and response. She uses wipes to hold open refrigerator doors and tucks away her phone so she doesn’t touch it.

    Go grocery shopping at low-volume times, like early morning or late at night, said Tara Smith, an epidemiologist at Kent State University. Try to maintain physical distance as much as you can. “The grocery store doesn’t make you magically exempt from viral spread.”

    Dr. Leana Wen wants to make sure people understand the storm is already here. They didn’t seem to get that over the weekend when she saw them in line for diners and Starbucks, and gathered for a children’s birthday party.

    “People are looking at the numbers in their communities and saying, ‘Oh, we only have one case,’” said the former health commissioner for the city of Baltimore, who also served as president of Planned Parenthood. “Those are only the cases we know of, but because of extremely limited testing capacity and because of the incubation period, there may be thousands of cases in our community. We just don’t know.”

    Panic buyers = the result of greedy capitalist mentality. What does the modern capitalist do whenever they feel out of control? They shop.

    It's normal to shop a bit more if you're going to be quarantining yourself but people buying supplies in exaggerated quantities is leading to more panic, not to mention the spread of infection from crowded supermarkets. What logic...

    And don't get me started about the greedy pigs who buy all the hand sanitizers so they can resell it at 5x the price. They should start rationing items. A normal person doesn't need 62 rolls of toilet paper. There was no shortage before the coronavirus so why should people assault the shelves as if we were some 3rd world starving country? Typical individualism, people being selfish and not thinking about the good of the nation and their fellow countrymen. Probably one effect of the panic buying we will soon see is a lot of waste. Most likely all the food bought is not going to be consumed but instead thrown in the trash, especially once supermarkets restock and some of the restrictions are lifted

    Nine EU states close borders due to virus

    Nine EU states have fully sealed their borders to non-nationals over the coronavirus pandemic, despite experts saying it will do no good.

    The Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and Spain have announced they would close borders to all foreigners.

    Some in the group, such as Denmark, made allowances for non-nationals who were delivering goods to the country.

    The moves followed partial closures and extra border checks imposed by Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, and several other countries.

    Germany also joined the part-closure group on Monday (16 March), by all-but sealing its frontiers with Austria, Denmark, France, and Luxembourg, while Slovenia closed its border with Italy.

    On a global level, the US added Ireland and the UK to its previous travel ban on 26 EU countries.

    Djibouti, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Serbia, Tanzania, and Tunisia also either closed their borders entirely or banned flights from the EU.

    Turkey closed borders to people from nine EU states and Russia closed land borders with Poland and Norway.

    The different measures came after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Europe to be the new "epicentre" of the pandemic.

    Numbers of infections and deaths in China, where the outbreak began, were going down.

    But France (29 deaths), Italy (368), Spain (97), and the UK (14) recorded their highest fatalities in a single day on Sunday.

    'Meaningless'

    The border closures went against the EU principle of free movement of people and against expert advice on how to contain the spread.

    For his part, Anders Tegnell, Sweden's state epidemiologist, called the Danish measures "completely meaningless".

    "I have a very hard time seeing how it could help us. There is no research that shows that. On the contrary, it would hurt us economically," he said.

    German health minister Jens Spahn said prior to Germany's partial closure: "The virus is in Germany, it is in Europe. That's the thought we have to get used to".

    "It will still spread even if you close all the borders. Sooner or later you have to let people in or out and then it starts spreading again," he said.

    European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen also said "general travel bans are not seen as being the most effective" by the WHO.

    Border closures would cause added "social and economic" harm, she warned.

    "The single market has to function. It is not good when member states take unilateral action because it always causes a domino effect and that prevents urgently needed equipment from reaching patients, from reaching hospitals and medical personnel," she said.

    And Mikael Damberg, the Swedish interior minister, echoed her concern.

    "The transportation system must work when it comes to food and healthcare materials ... so that we don't make problems for each other handling the crisis," Damberg said.

    But none of that appeared to put off the group-of-nine who closed their frontiers.

    "Free movement in the Schengen zone used to be our greatest value, but now it's become the greatest danger," Lithuanian interior minister Rita Tamašunienė said, referring to the passport-free 'Schengen' area, which covers 22 EU states as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

    Virus politics

    The French president, Emmanuel Macron, recently warned against coronavirus "nationalism" in a TV speech.

    But far-right leaders in Italy and France have also seized upon the threat as a way to attack both the EU and the migrants trying to get there.

    French far-right party the National Rally voiced a similar line to Lithuania's.

    "The free circulation of goods and people, immigration policies, and weak controls at the borders obviously allow the exponential spread of this type of virus," Aurélia Beigneux, a far-right French MEP, has said.

    Italian far-right politician Matteo Salvini and Hungary's right-wing government also blamed migrants for the disease even though there was no evidence for it.

    "Allowing the migrants to land from Africa, where the presence of the virus was confirmed, is irresponsible," Salvini said.

    "We observe a certain link between coronavirus and illegal migrants," Hungary's national security advisor György Bakondi has also said.

    Looney Left: Vile morons claim PM is planning ‘genocide’ and vow to infect Boris with virus



    CRAZED Leftists are claiming that Britain is planning to ‘kill of old people’ in a mass genocide over the COVID-19 outbreak – and one idiot has vowed to infect the Prime Minister with the Deadly virus in a mass ‘cough up’ outside Downing Street.

    Halfwit Josh Ryan from Bangor in Wales claims to be a DJ and set up the sick Facebook event, the idiot also boasts of his weed habit on social media including Instagram.

    He called for ‘Coughing At 10 Downing Street To Infect Boris With CoVid-19’, of which is partially in response to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s comments around the fact that more ‘loved ones’ were likely to die of the virus, before the infection died down.

    So far, 1,400 people have confirmed that they are going, with another 8,300 confirmed to be ‘interested’. The event is due to take place on the 20th April, between the hours of 4:20-8:40 PM.

    Rich Hutch said: “But just think about his 4 kids. I mean 5. 6? Oh who knows/cares..”

    People have commented a delightful range of comments, including Aodhan Cousins who called Boris a ‘fartsack’ who was planning on ‘sneezing’ on the Prime Minister.

    Owen Holmes stating that if someone paid him he’d ‘gladly sneeze on Boris’ and one joked about how many children Boris has.

    Others were more critical however, with one user calling the event’s supporters ‘f*cking zoomers’, and another calling it a ‘stupid event created by stupid little people’.

    ‘TORY GENOCIDE’

    MEANWHILE, other leftie social media users have started a viral hashtag on Twitter called #BorisGenocide.

    This was leftie criticism of what was perceived as a lack of action by the Conservative government under Prime Minister Boris Johnson towards the virus.

    This includes one user who indicated that Boris wants ‘1.20 million dead’, another criticised how ‘criminal’ it was that people were unsure about what to do in this time of crisis and a Priti Patel parody account claiming that the coronavirus victims were just one group in a long line of those already ‘culled’ by the Tory government, including the ‘Windrush generation’ and the ‘mentally ill’.
