    For those old enough to remember the Imperial Soap ad from the 70's.

    I have a air filter that runs 24/7 in the bed room. If you have lung issues then you should invest in a good air filter. check out these www.inovaairpurifiers.com.au

    That's why I said it was a claim. Maybe you could do some research on this, because I'm going to bed.

    Someone had fun writing that. Even Chinese officials don’t know the situation on the ground.

    I just saw this at jsmineset.com

    I just received a call from a close American friend of mine who just got off the phone with a Chinese friend, who has relatives in Wuhan. He says there may already be ~10,000 dead there from the virus. He was quite graphic about dreadful conditions in the city. He opined that the government was not coming clean on real facts. Imagine that?

    It is far worse Bill than people imagine: My friend reiterated that Wuhan, more than other places in China, has a local population which consumes rats, bats, snakes, etc. , just like I told him.

    His Wuhan relative recounted incidents of people walking down street and dropping dead. I see why the government has quarantined the place, which means nobody (especially the press) gets out or into the city.

    This is really scary stuff. I imagine that China was, and is covering up what they thought was contained and now is not and I doubt they understand the scope of global fallout that they have unleashed.​

    Glad you are looking at reputable sources of info. You thought Q was fake but you believe these clowns?

    Hope you didn't follow their GOTS advice several years ago. If you did, it certainly cost you money in lost opportunity, etc.

    I've been reading from "unverified" Chinese source that the virus tricks the immune system to attack the lungs and some of the fatalities don't even have fever. Even if the person survives, the lungs maybe damaged permanently. Any medical doctor here care to share how this is possible? Does SARS also does this? This changes the way I view the virus. It means the stronger your immune system, the worst it maybe? This is getting nuts, it's like a Hollywood movie playing out.

    Yes - I've read the same. Not a MD but check out 'cytokine storm' (or, cytokine release syndrome). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cytokine_release_syndrome
    https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140227142250.htm

    It is believed that cytokine storms were responsible for the disproportionate number of healthy young adult deaths during the 1918 influenza pandemic, which killed 50 to 100 million people.[13] In this case, a healthy immune system may have been a liability rather than an asset. Preliminary research results from Hong Kong also indicated this as the probable reason for many deaths during the SARS epidemic in 2003.[14] Human deaths from the bird flu H5N1 usually involve cytokine storms as well.[15] Cytokine storm has also been implicated in hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.[16]

    WHY EVEN POST THIS CRAP?
    This is not a point of view that needs shared so people can decide for themselves IT IS COMPLETE CRAP.
    How about this then >>>>>The Chinese news reports about building hospitals in a week is just a cover story for MASS GRAVE DIGGING?

    If 112,000 were dead since this virus was born then in 2 weeks time it would be all around the globe and we are simply NOT SEEING this sort of pathogenesis.
