    You said on a previous post under a video you posted:
    "∆∆∆∆∆∆∆
    I can't read Chinese!
    Hopefully a member can interpret this video for all of us!".
    Me being a member, I was merely telling you "do your own interpreting". _JLG.

    If you can't help; let someone else who can!
    I am sure there are good people here who can actually read Chinese who won't mind helping out their fellow members!

    As seen at a Sydney cafe in recent days (as reported in the press)...then the SJW's mobilised and forced this cafe to apologise.

    I saw that - the business would have gone under if they hadn't, the SJWs would have made sure of it

    Let's hope they are right though and the virus is shoddy

    This is telling....but no real surprise.

    Pakistani students should NOT be evacuated from Wuhan as China has better medical facilities – envoy

    Pakistani envoy to China said that local hospitals are better equipped to treat the deadly coronavirus, and therefore, unlike some other countries, Islamabad will not be evacuating its students amid the outbreak.

    Pakistan's hospitals "do not meet the standards required to treat a patient diagnosed with coronavirus," Naghmana Hashmi said on Sunday, as cited by local outlet Geo News.

    China, on the other hand, has "the best medical facilities to handle the patients suffering from the disease," the envoy stated. Hashmi said that Islamabad is working closely with Chinese officials to ensure that Pakistani students stay safe in Wuhan, the city in central China's Hubei Province that was the epicenter of the outbreak.

    The envoy added that the four Pakistanis diagnosed with the virus were recovering. She rejected the reports that the embassy was not receiving phone calls, and that stranded students had no food and water.

    Pakistani Health Minister Zafar Mirza said earlier that Islamabad will not be "just copying a few other countries" that have decided to pull their citizens out of China. "We want to act responsibly in order not to become a reason for global spread of #Coronavirus," he wrote on Twitter, adding that the World Health Organization currently does not recommend evacuation.

    196a/ We want to act responsibly in order not to become a reason for the global spread of #Coronarivus. WHO currently does not recommend evacuation. Our own risk assessment, WHO’s stance & China’s effective outbreak response r the reasons for our current decision at present time.

    — Zafar Mirza (@zfrmrza) February 2, 2020
    Instead, Pakistani nationals will be allowed to return home after being quarantined for two weeks and receiving a certificate that they do not carry the virus.

    Pakistani government's response to the outbreak drew criticism from opposition politicians, like Senator Mushahid Ullah Khan, who accused the Pakistani embassy in China of not being "active" enough.

    The decision not to evacuate students in particular has sparked complaints on social media. In a video that has gone viral, a Pakistani student showed how hundreds of Indian students were being evacuated by bus from Wuhan, and said that it was a "shame" that Islamabad did not do the same.

    The previously-unknown coronavirus has killed 304 people in China and has spread to some other countries. So far, more than 14,500 people have been infected, most of them in mainland China.

    On Sunday, the first death outside China was reported in the Philippines.

    The Johns Hopkins tracker has been down for a while on my end. Does anyone have a link to another credible tracker?

    Or did the CCP press the internet kill switch. :eek:

    doubt China would take it down, since it is Chinese offical data JH is visualising (and China is still updating list)

    more like JH doesn’t have enough bandwidth

    JH site up and running at the moment. They seem to have changed the data update interval - it was previously time-stamped but now says 'each point is updated as new cases are identified'?

    Interesting. I've read reports that nano-silver was extremely effective at killing the ebola virus within 6 hours, but authorities wouldn't let the research team that made the discovery assist with treatment...even though the EPA has declared colloidal/Nano-silver "Non-Toxic" at low doses.

    AND - Considering silver is everywhere, I've also read that we used to get a reasonable dose of silver in our diet via our consumption of fruits and vegetables. Since commercial farming, we have little to no silver in our fresh produce because its mainly grown from the same land and soil that has been depleted of silver.

    I’ll start putting silver bars in the fruit garden. Also small silver bars left in the freezer might make good ice cubes.

    Love the idea of "silver ice cubes". Something for @sonypony to commercialise? :)
    In fairness, there was a sound reason why they used to use the 'family silver' for cutlery and serving foods I suppose....

    It's just a few footages of police wearing protective gear, carrying weapons and people lying motionless on the ground. I guess they are catching people that fled the Wuhan quarantine. Not sure why there is blood on the ground, maybe they ran away from the police? Looks like a scene out of Resident Evil?

    Silver to kill virus, simpler to use alcohol.
    That statement is like saying we have a road congestion issue, lets give everyone a Ferrari so they can go faster

    These days the soil is depleted not only from silver but from any minerals which we had many years ago...

    Even if you are willing to pay, you may not be able to buy them. I spent $80 on a couple boxes last Tuesday which just arrived and they were low quality made in China fakes. I had some myself which I bought before the outbreak, but wanted to get a couple more as a backup in case this lasts 2 months and to give to family friends.

    We used to handle it daily and have it jangle around in our pockets too.
