Virus death toll in China rises as US prepares evacuation
A new viral illness being watched with a wary eye around the globe accelerated its spread in China on Sunday with 56 deaths so far, while the U.S. Consulate in the city at the epicenter announced it will evacuate its personnel and some private citizens aboard a charter flight.
China‚Äôs health minister said the country was entering a ‚Äúcrucial stage‚ÄĚ as ‚Äúit seems like the ability of the virus to spread is getting stronger.‚ÄĚ
A notice from the U.S. Embassy in Beijing said there would be limited capacity to transport U.S. citizens on a Tuesday flight from Wuhan that will proceed directly to San Francisco. It said that in the event there are not enough seats, priority will be given to to individuals ‚Äúat greater risk from coronavirus.‚ÄĚ
The French Consulate also was considering an evacuation of its nationals from the city. It said it‚Äôs working on arranging a bus service to help French citizens leave...
From the news: "..the (Chinese)government was stepping up efforts to restrict travel and public gatherings while rushing medical staff and supplies to the city at the center of the crisis, Wuhan, which remains on lockdown with no flights, trains or buses in or out."
Also: "A notice from the U.S. Embassy in Beijing said there would be limited capacity to transport U.S. citizens on a Tuesday flight from Wuhan that will proceed directly to San Francisco."
Dangerous enough for lockdown for the Chinese folk, but apparently not to US citizens headed to San Francisco or the west coast?
Any news of quarantine until assurance of no issue when they arrive? If not, which might it be, over-reaction of the Chicom govt, or a need to manufacture a crisis here?
And the Democrat party wants to set up a Socialist/Liberalist (pseudo-communism) state in America.
Perhaps this little medical episode will help some of the voters to choose very carefully what they want for their future. But I doubt it will.
When a governing authority becomes some kind of Big Brother and asserts all the rules/decisions for everybody, then from what we have observed in human history is that havoc and devastation follow. There may be 'technical' differences between socialism and communism - but "people" get in the way and start their own revolution.
Quote:- "The Chinese ‚Äúcommunists‚ÄĚ actually call the Russian ‚Äúcommunists‚ÄĚ social imperialists, with perhaps the same justice that the Russian ‚Äúbolsheviks‚ÄĚ in the past called the socialists ‚Äúsocial fascists"." (Albert Weisbord)
China's rejection of all things western, including science, could prove very dangerous in the coronavirus epidemic.
For the first couple of weeks as the news was broadcast over the world - China's government ignored the problem. Their defensive/protectionist attitude towards other nations could prove their undoing - But could prove dangerous for other nations.
May God have mercy on the ordinary folks in China.
no, I'm not in China, I left about a week ago for winter break, but my loved one is, I don't want to share my private details on sermon audio forum because google search picks it all up and it can be seen by all, but you can find out what happened on this link:
The great modern destroyer of people, societies, and freedom. The most advanced system of control we have ever experienced in earth's history. And what do they do in a great crisis like this? Do what communist have always done. Hide the truth and proclaim lies...
I appreciate your comments YIA, as they are a small glimpse into to the unproven yet obvious truth of communist China...
People seem to have this false idea, that China is the first successful communist state. In reality, they have just been able to suppress the truth longer than Russia, Cuba, or the other communist countries did. It will all come out in it's miserable, and horrible truth someday...
Amd America will probably elect a socialist president the next year...
Interesting comments from YIA. News media in West 'eats up' whatever the Chinese Communist Govt says, as if it were the Gospel Truth. I think China admitted they executed over 25,000 people in one year. But we still like to buy all the stuff they sell us in the dollar stores!
Some people wanted an update on my life, I just want to share about my spiritual life, today was the first time I picked up a bible since I arrived home from China. Usually the Holy Spirit gives me joy, but my lack of spiritual food really shows. Finally I had some private time, In my private study, the words of God just jump at me, going through my skin, right into my heart! Just thinking on everything that happened, the people who I talked to, both infected and not, with no will to live, losing all their NBA idols, their nationalism, and the bible answered me and gave me joy and hope!
"All the days of the afflicted are evil, But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast. Better is a little with the fear of the Lord , Than great treasure with trouble. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, Than a fatted calf with hatred." Proverbs 15:15‚Ä≠-‚Ä¨17 NKJV
Hi, the media is absolutely not giving the whole picture.
- Yesterday the officials said 5 million escaped through the quarantine, which upset a lot of people who did stay behind.
- Videos of people passing out on the street, inside the hospital, are immediately taken down, and prosecuted. China just doing what china does.
- The feeling of confusion abounds, people simply do not know how serious this is. Pneumonia is treatable with modern medicine, but even common fever reducing medicine like advil aspirin are not available since western medicine is not popular.
United States is one of the few countries that is planning to actually evacuate Americans from this area and sending the aircraft to do it ‚ĚóūüĎć Scientists still haven't gotten a good handle on this disease.
YIA: I cannot imagine being in an ambulance and having the ones who are supposed to be helping you laughing at you. I‚Äôm so sorry you had to go through that. We all need to be praying about this virus.
I think this will really show the world how poor, dirty and undeveloped China really is.
1. Dirty, there is a garbage dump near me, and people live there. Many of them have the attitude of little children, why move, when it's free housing? Many of my students live in apartments that should be demolished, Being so Thrifty to the point of being unhealthy is a Characteristic many are proud off.
2. Health care. On a normal day you do not want to get sick in china, much less during a crisis. They hate western medicine, and practice traditional chinese medicine. I dislocated my knee in 2010, the ambulance guys laughed at me on the way, took of my pants, and left me for an hour in the middle of the hospital for passersby to stare at me in my underwear! I always see people smoke inside the hospital open door washrooms, and they NEVER wash their hands!
China is an example of to what levels you can retard a society.
