Image: The 1918–1919 "Spanish flu" pandemic resulted in dramatic mortality worldwide
Arthur Waldron, Lauder Professor of International Relations at the University of Pennsylvania, in re: Chinese air travel internationally is reduced to almost nil. Appears to be part of the Wuhan coronavirus, now Covid19, pandemic. It seems to affect especially males, and more so those over age 55. Today is a turning point:
—In a leading Chinese paper today, there briefly appeared a story about the P4 viral lab in Wuhan: Beijing's response to the epidemic.
SARS began organically, but was fuelled by three releases from the P4 lab in Wuhan. The article was removed from the Net within maybe fifteen minutes, and then permanently expunged by the government. Looks as though the regime is complicit: the govt leading them may also be infecting them. Also, looks as though the origin of the pandemic may simply be the [regime’s] Wuhan P4 lab.
— Within the last six hours, a 15,000-case spike.
SCMP: Health authorities reported on Thursday 14,840 new confirmed cases, ten times the number of a day earlier. Either we’ve just recognized the immensity of the disease, or else it’s exploded [beyond being in any way controllable]. It’s getting worse very, very, very fast. Two divergent groups within the Party: one wanting to release accurate information and the other refusing to. Only a thorough massacre of all the people responsible for this crime will restore stability. As for trust, much too late.
