percent of the cases - including all 14 in the United States -

And that proportion may
be an under count.

Many medical personnel,

For those who study viruses, the large number of mild cases
is reason for optimism.
"This looks to be a

about it," said Matthew Frieman, a virologist at the University
of Maryland School of Medicine.

The coronavirus outbreak

other plagues, which are being ignored.

We are jealously

Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of
death in adults and children in China.
In urban areas, pneumonia
is the fourth leading cause of death, and in rural areas pneumonia
is the leading cause of death
A recent article in
the Chinese literature estimated that each year in China there
are 2.5 million patients with pneumonia and that 125,000 (5%) of
these patients die of pneumonia-related illness.
Another study (Ambient
particulate matter pollution and adult hospital admissions for
pneumonia in urban China - A national time series analysis for
2014 through 2017) said, in China more than 4.2
million pneumonia admissions were identified in 184 Chinese
cities between 2014 and 2017 probably with approximately 200,000
You might rightly ask,
"So why hasn't
pneumonia been labeled an epidemic in China in past years?
Why hasn't the World
Health Organization, at the very least, declared a state of
emergency for China based on pneumonia?"
For U.S. adults,
pneumonia is the most common cause of hospital admissions other than
women giving birth.
About 1 million
adults in the US seek care in a hospital due to pneumonia every
year, and 50,000 die from this disease.
Pneumonia is only called
"coronavirus" if the patient is tested and the virus is discovered,
though tests cannot be depended on for accuracy of diagnosis.
With millions coming down
with pneumonia every year in China alone it tells us that there is a
gigantic pool of people with pneumonia, in China, who can be falsely
labeled "deaths from the coronavirus"...
There are other categories of illness like "lower lung infections"
and "influenza." that can be merged with pneumonia, in the rush to
diagnose people with the coronavirus.
Infections than Coronavirus Spreads Around the World
A hushed panic is playing out in hospitals around the world as a
deadly fungus is spreading.
national, state and local governments have been reluctant to
publicize outbreaks of this drug resistant infection, arguing there
is no point in scaring patients - or prospective ones, meaning they
do not want to scare patients away from going to hospitals.
Officials are still
scrambling to keep a lid on it as the infection is spreading around
Dr. Johanna Rhodes, an infectious disease expert at Imperial
College London said,
"We are driving this
with the use of anti-fungicides on crops and we have no idea
where it's coming from. We've never heard of it. It's just
spread like wildfire."
Thanks to the
over-prescription of antimicrobial drugs had also laid the
groundwork for this relatively new germ that preys on people with
weakened immune systems according to
the New York Times.
The infection - a fungus
Candida Auris, kills almost
half of all patients who contract it within 90 days, according to
the CDC - as it's impervious to most major anti-fungal medications.
First described in 2009 after a 70-year-old Japanese woman showed up
at a Tokyo hospital with C. Auris in her ear canal, the
aggressive yeast infection has spread across Asia and Europe -
arriving in the US by 2016.

Switzerland, one of the world's
leaders in the roll-out of 5G mobile technology, has
placed an indefinite moratorium on

Behind China's virus problem is a host of serious health problems
caused by some of the worst pollution in the world, severe
overcrowding (put too many rats together in a too small a space and
see what happens) and now the added insult of high frequency
radiation provided by 5G and you have a cocktail that still is only
killing 2 to maybe 3 percent of those affected by the coronavirus.
