Maybe this nightmare is all an accident. Maybe it was never meant to happen, but our self-interested leaders were only concerned with political advantage, regardless of events in Wuhan. And now China is laughing all the way to the bank.
The story so far:
8 July 2019 BBC China Blog – from 8 July 2019,
“While the world’s attention has been focused on the protests in Hong Kong, another Chinese city has been witnessing unrest on a scale rarely seen on the mainland.
Thousands of citizens in Wuhan, the capital city of central Hubei province, took to the streets last week for several days. They were angry about a planned waste incineration plant they say will bring dangerous levels of pollution to their town.
But as the protests steadily grew over the week, a censorship and public security operation kicked in to try to keep a lid on the unrest.“
High levels of air pollution cause pneumonias, collapses in the street, the poisons kill people within hours of inhaling them. In amongst the degrading lung tissue is a cold, flu like virus, possibly left over from winter, makes everything worse.
The protests continue, and by Christmas 2019 people are dying in the streets from air pollution. Lockdown is a political expediency to quell the protests. Possibly as a beneficial side effect, it keeps the population away from the worst of the pollution. Hence Lockdown was remarkably effective in stopping the spread of a possibly non-existent/mild flu-like virus. They might have even temporarily closed the incinerator, as business ground to a halt.
Dec 30th 2019, Li Wenliang, the now long dead Chinese opthalmologist (eye doctor), not physician nor virologist, sent a message to a group of fellow doctors warning them about a possible outbreak of an illness that resembled Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in Wuhan. Meant to be a private message, he encouraged them to protect themselves from ‘infection’. He only knew what he saw – people dying in the streets, reminiscent of the London Smog of 1952, which caused thousands of deaths. (was that Covid52?)
Lockdown has never before been used against epidemics, although, epidemics are a regular feature of all civilisations. Faced with ‘fear of death’, winter flu and a WHO significantly funded by Bill and Melinda Gates, there was an opportunity. Why let a good crisis go to waste? Western governments copied the Chinese example and locked down their populations in the face of something they didn’t quite understand. What government is not envious of the Chinese government’s control of its population? Too good an opportunity to miss, big business piled in – a chance to clean up on small business. What is there not to love about a good Lockdown?
In their panic, about a possible virus, Italy undoubtedly put too many old people on ventilators and their ITUs and hospitals were quickly overwhelmed, as was Northwick Park Hospital. Ventilators are not the right treatment for flu, or other pneumonia. It is all but impossible to get people over 65, off a ventilator.
In any ITU, there are always a number of respiratory viral infections, which show all the signs and symptoms of a Covid virus. Maybe China did actually release another flu virus, as cover for the political mayhem in Wuhan.
The net result is that in the middle of an economic war with China we have very politely sunk our own navy, or rather trashed our economy and our health service in ways that neither are likely to recover.
More from the BBC China Blog:
“But there has been public concern that badly-made incinerators can emit dioxins that are highly toxic and can damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and cause cancer. In 2013, five such plants in Wuhan city were found to be sub-standard and emitting dangerous pollutants, according to China’s state broadcaster CCTV.” That’s sounds very like Covid19!
All the tracking and tracing in the world won’t get rid of the flu or even a common cold, whatever the NHS says. And once hysteria takes hold, it is very difficult to get anyone to see sense. This is truly a PANIC-demic of gargantuan proportions.
