  • How do you get rid of over 2 million protesters in Hong Kong, while maintaining plausible deniability? Release a man made Virus. By the way the Corona Virus was created at an American University and sold to China. Hong Kong is a Ghost town now!

  • I'm in London and have a dry cough and headache but very mild and no fever. The nhs said to just continue life as normal as I hadn't travelled or been in contact with a person diagnosed with the coronavirus. But I'm still deciding to self quarantine as there could be so many unconfirmed cases that I could have caught it from.

  • Everything about this virus is suspicious. Personally I have a strong suspicion that this virus was man made, by the China government, for what ever reason that may be, but probably population control. First they blame animals and pets so they start killing the animals in the most inhuman way, then blame it on meat products, but they r prob the ones who created this virus, and continue to lie about the facts regulating the number of cases and deaths. What’s crazy, is that the world finally will see how he Chinese government ACTUALLY treat their people. EVERYONE SEEMS TO Have A BLIND EYE WHEN IT COMES TO CHINA, it’s disgusting how they treat people over their. Go look at the REAL coronavirus videos published by journalists, who coincidentally disappeared after speaking out.

  • Asymptomatic, no symptoms but can still spread the disease. It's a sneaky bastard. I still think it escaped the bioweapons lab in Wuhan. Which would explain why the Chinese government won't allow the CDC access to China.

  • Reporter needed to delve into more questions of treatment & asking this girl to retrace her and her husband's steps on how or where she think she contracted disease. Also, he was right next to her and never contacted virus - why? Those are the types of questions that need asked and researched.

  • If they dont know what this virus is, how do they know someone even technically has the virus - if a cough and/or fever are the only symptoms, which as they say mimic a cold or flu? And since she is in the hospital- what is the "treatment " she is receiving if they dont know or have a vaccine to treat it?! What parameters are used to say she is "clear" and can leave. And if they can say she is clear to leave, is the "treatment " she rcvd being used on others to contain the spread of the virus? They keep saying these people are being treated, and are ok to leave quarantine, but the virus is still spreading- I AM concerned & confused 😐

  • They're not telling us the truth. They are creating a narrative that allows the rounding up of citizens pretending they are infected with no signs of infection. They just pick the targets and round them up, news will follow the planned narrative, and people will not question it. They will just say...YUP THEY MUST BE INFECTED.. and they will be relieved they are taken out of society.

  • More mainstream programming to distract and deceive, IMO. Whilst this embeds itself in every nation. Inaction is what is needed, trade and travel to cease. Voluntary quarantine for a month, shut everything down. All service people hazmat protection. Drop the infection rate to as close to zero as possible.

  • Nothing to see here, alls fine and dandy. Just ignore the videos of people collapsing at work, walking, hospitals, or the lines of bodies in bags outside of shop residences, ready for collection and cremation. This is growing exponentially around the world while we watch these fluffy articles, not actually what appears to be going on. And a 14 day quarantine? Who plucked this out of whose butt, with a supposedly unknown virus?
