2-12-2020 - China announced it is changing the way it reports official coronavirus
cases. They will no longer report asymptomatic cases (showing no symptoms) that
test positive for the virus. The reason given is to avoid wasting a
second test kit to confirm the diagnosis. Asymptomatic patients
can be carriers of the virus and infect others, despite showing no
change in reporting will further suppress the official numbers of cases
and deaths being reported by China. China is already
severely under-reporting its official numbers.
official death toll from the Wuhan Coronavirus has risen to 1,117, all but two in mainland China, with
over 45,000 officially confirmed cases. Many experts are
suggesting that the real numbers are closer to 200,000 cases and
nearing 5,000 deaths, based on unofficial information and evidence
being leaked out of China.
How is the Wuhan Coronavirus spread? It
is now known that this virus can be spread by person-to-person contact,
aerosol (meaning through the air), eating tainted food, and through fecal
Medical researchers in China now claim an incubation period of up to 24 days
for the Wuhan Coronavirus, meaning that it could take someone that long
from exposure to the virus until showing symptoms. This is ten days
longer than was previously reported. Also, the researchers found that the virus can survive up to 9 days on tainted surfaces, four days longer than previously thought.
