For that you want something that kills fast and has a high mortality rate

Warfare takes different forms. And many existing weapons could be said to be ‘not suitable’. Don’t underestimate the insanity of mankind.

I do not have reason to believe it is an escaped (or deliberately released) bio-weapon. But I cannot rule it out.

Glad you are healthy as your forefathers’ genes, @forsh. Gotta be, you are near
The Arctic?

Ran into a Finn once in Sweden. Nice chap. Friendly, but somehow different
From the other Scandinavians.

(Funny, he was telling the same jokes about Swedes that the Swedes
was telling about Finns.)

Continue to be well, my friend. We don’t know what’s going to hit us.

All we need, a fricking pandemic. “Fake Wuhanvirus” ?

I saw this on today’s news about the Wuhan coronavirus:


“New study finds incubation period of up to 24 days.”


That is not good news.


A lot of people are only being watched for 14 days, not 24.

Zhong Nanshan* published an initial study that listed an outlier of 24 days. The study has not yet undergone peer-review and that data point hasn’t been corroborated.

*Dr Nanshan is a well regarded epidemiologist and is one of the primary medical consultants in the 2019-nCoV outbreak.

You’re a nice enough guy, but if you’re going to start peddling snake oil to people you’re going to get a lot of push back and rightfully so.

There are now 31,107 members on this forum. Almost as many as have been confirmed to have taken Corona virus (43,128). So for anyone to come on here spouting “truths” about what works to kill virus’s in the human body, they would have to know a LOT of people’s medical history!

I have enough medical history that I know too well how some things affect other things. Take this, it X’s out that. Colloidal Silver is one of those things. It is not readily absorbed by the body and so it tends to sit in the Kidney for the life of the person. In older age, some medications the Dr.s might need to prescribe are adversely affected by the collection of silver in the kidney, which metabolizes a lot of the medicines we take. Thus, when you reach the point in life you need those meds, you are FUBAR. We are all the same, in more ways than we are all different. But those differences are critical.

The number of people recovering from the Corona virus is growing rapidly, well over 4,000 now and climbing (4294). And yes, 1018 people have reportedly died from this new virus. Virtually all of them in the Hubei district of China (974). And only 2 deaths reported outside of mainland China (1 in Hong Kong and 1 in the Phillipines). This is a sad and unfortunate series of events that has hit a large community with little recourse for treatment. The way people are being treated in this area is largely unacceptable, unbelievable in this day and age even. And yet, there it is. I have read a report that suspects a Virological Research Institute in Wuhan to have leaked this virus. They have been studying it since 2016, the report states. And they have leaked before, causing much trouble in 2004. Perhaps the day will come that they understand what happened and how, and be better suited to treat people should such an occurrence happen again. The Flu is still killing thousands in the US, hundreds of millions of vaccines given or not.

In one of the videos Winston said he taught doctors western bedside manner and basic hygiene in a hospital setting. I inferred from that statement he meant he was a doctor also.

He has never inferred he was a doctor. But did teach English to doctors and hospital staff. That’s where he met his wife, who is a Physician. He personally knows many chinese doctors, including the one who just passed away from the virus.

NCCIH disagrees with the effectiveness and safety of Colloidal Silver.

Wellp, when they’re bought-and-paid-for by Big Pharma, of course they’d say that. They know who butters their bread. (And so do I.)

If c-Ag were patentable, it’d be The Second Coming. But it’s not patentable, so of course “it doesn’t work”, and instead, increasingly toxic powerful narrow-spectrum antibiotics which can wreak havoc with your innards are pushed instead.

And you’d have to drink nothing but c-Ag for years before even your elbows and knees would turn grayish.

In warfare, “1 wounded soldier = 10 dead soldiers”.

All the support necessary to carry him out, tend to his care, etc., consumes as many resources to be the equivalent of having 10 fewer soldiers out there fighting.

If you can paralyse and panic an entire country (world) so easily…

Just sayin’…

Well, now, anyone here who read that bit about screwing up a virus’s method of replication.

Hey, to any of our friends in China or who know people there- how is the extra week or two of unplanned time off effecting people financially?

It’s alright to sit at home & watch movies/ play games, but the food & rent still has to be paid.

Don't think of China as a capitalist form of government and people are fully in control of their lives and choices.

In China the government controls almost everything including healthcare and 100% of media coverage.

This may help you better understand how the system works.  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/12/30/rethinking-medical-associations-best-interests.aspx

Balance is the key.  There is a place for both modern and alternative medicine.  When one rules out the other, the balance is broken.  Both sides have their shameful history and both have their merits.

I think it was wrong the way the cruise line informed those passengers of their plight when the Captain told them “I have good news and bad news, the good news is that your 7 day cruise has been extended to 7 weeks, free of charge”

I don’t think you have anything to say. You seem to just be posting about vague general ideas. Spit it out if you have something to contribute. Nobody here likes you enough to keep playing 21 questions to get through your insecurities.

It is related.

Our friends in China may not be free to post about what is truly happening there at the risk of government retaliation. Internet in China is highly censored. Big brother is watching.

On the Dutch TV-news was an item that suggests China also applies compartmentalization. People who want to go to work after the prolonged CNY holiday must go in quarantine for 14 days before they can enter their work place. That implies that the practical CNY holiday is extented with another 14 days. Till the end of the month.
