    Default First person-to-person transmission of coronavirus in US confirmed

    First person-to-person transmission of coronavirus in US confirmed


    The first known coronavirus case in the US involving someone who had not traveled to China has surfaced in Illinois, health officials said Thursday.

    The patient, who was not identified, is the husband of the Chicago woman who became infected after making a trip to the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Officials said the man, who is in his 60s, is in good condition and is being treated in isolation at a local hospital.

    “This is a very serious public health situation. Moving forward, we can expect to see more cases, and more cases means more potential for person-to-person spread,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, according to CNBC.

    The report marked the sixth coronavirus case, including the person’s wife, that has been detected in the US. The other patients have been in Arizona, Southern California and Washington state.

    All the earlier cases involved travelers who returned from Wuhan, where the virus emerged last month at a market.

    Plain Ol' Flu is far more deadly to ZOGling Whigger Ass-Clowns than Gook-a-virus

    The flu has killed 10,000 Americans as the world worries over coronavirus

    Yahoo Lifestyle
    February 6, 2020


    Whether you’re watching TV or reading the news, you’d be hard-pressed to avoid a story about coronavirus. And it’s no wonder, since the outbreak — which now affects more than 27 countries outside of China, where the Wuhan coronavirus originated — has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO).

    But there’s another major health threat that seems to be getting lost in the fray: the flu. An estimated 19 million Americans have been infected with the flu so far this season, and 180,000 of them have been hospitalized because of the illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The flu virus has already killed an estimated 10,000 people across the U.S., including 68 children, according to the CDC. In fact, the 2019-2020 flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in years.

    In contrast, the Wuhan coronavirus has infected more than 28,000 people and killed 565, according to data gathered by Johns Hopkins University — though those numbers continue to rise.

    While Iahn Gonsenhauser, MD, chief quality and patient safety officer at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that it’s still too early to classify how virulent the novel coronavirus strain is, he notes that we’re already facing “an epidemic of panic.”

    However, “flu is by far the thing we should be worried about because it’s the thing we’re more likely to encounter,” Gonsenhauser says. “If you’re a child, elderly, frail, or have COPD or heart failure, your risk of mortality is actually pretty high with the flu. Your risk of coronavirus — it’s 12 cases in the U.S. — you’re pretty unlikely to come into contact with them.”

    One of the reasons why coronavirus is garnering much more attention than the flu has to do with how we process language — and in particular, medical terminology, Gonsenhauser explains. “We throw around the word pandemic — that terrifies people,” he says, noting the word can bring up the terrible pandemics from history, such as the bubonic plague and smallpox. “But really all we mean by that word is something that’s spreading across a large geographic area in a short amount of time. But it doesn't necessarily indicate the virulence and deadliness of it. I think people think it’s like the movie Outbreak.”

    While coronaviruses aren’t new, this particular one (known as 2019-nCoV) is. “We’ve seen coronavirus before, but this is a new version,” Gonsenhauser says. “So any time there’s something new people automatically go to Ebola and the zombie apocalypse, thinking that it’s untreatable and deadly. That’s not what we’re seeing. It’s certainly spreading more rapidly than SARS did, but it’s not more dangerous than other viral strains.”

    As U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar stated in a Jan. 28 press briefing: "This is a very fast moving, constantly changing situation,” adding, “but, at this point, Americans should not worry for their own safety."

    CDC’s director, Robert R. Redfield, MD, shared a similar statement in a Jan. 30 press release: “We understand that this [coronavirus] may be concerning, but based on what we know now, we still believe the immediate risk to the American public is low.”

    Another factor that may be contributing to the fear surrounding coronavirus is that it shares similar symptoms with the flu, such as fever and cough, making it harder to tell what the disease the person coughing next to you on the train has. “The symptoms definitely overlap,” says Gonsenhauser. “One of the reasons that drives some of the panic is that this is happening during flu season. But if this were happening in the middle of summer when people weren't getting colds and flu, it would be a lot more clear when people are coming back with symptoms we should be concerned about.”

    In the meantime, Gonsenhauser stresses the importance of getting the influenza vaccine and practicing good hand hygiene. Even though we are well into flu season, he says, “It’s never too late to get a flu shot. Get one.”

    Also, wash your hands with soap and warm or cold water for 20 seconds frequently throughout the day, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Gonsenhauser explains that the primary mode of transmission for viruses like the flu and coronavirus is person-to-person and through body fluids, such as saliva and mucus. “You think about the number of people who wipe their nose on the back of their hand and then touch a doorknob or escalator handle, and then you touch it moments later,” he says. “[Viruses] can live long enough to transmit that way.”

    He adds: “If people were as concerned about influenza as they were about coronavirus we could potentially really create a much lower propensity for flu virus to spread in the U.S.”

    Update: This article has been updated with statements from U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and CDC director Robert R. Redfield, MD.

    Default US citizen in China dies of coronavirus in first known American death

    US citizen in China dies of coronavirus in first known American death


    The first American has died of the coronavirus, succumbing to the deadly infection in mainland China on Thursday, The New York Times reported Friday — which was also the deadliest day of the outbreak so far.

    A total of 86 people died of the virus Friday, all of them in China, according to the latest health statistics on Worldometers.info, which compiles data from the World Heath Organization and other agencies.

    Little data has been released about the American, other than that he or she died in a hospital in Wuhan, the city at the center of the outbreak, and was around 60 years old, the US Embassy in Beijing told The Times.

    “We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss,” a spokesman for the embassy told the paper.

    “Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment.”

    At least 719 people have died of the virus since Jan. 23, when the first fatalities were reported.

    All but two of the deaths have been in mainland China; the other deaths were in Hong Kong and the Philippines.

    The virus has infected more than 33,000 people, almost all of them in China.

    Of those, 6,100 are classified as being in severe condition and another 2,000 have recovered.

    Experts estimate that each patient has passed the illness on to an average of three or four other people, causing the outbreak to expand geometrically.

    Default ZOG Markets drop into correction territory, extending brutal week of losses

    ZOG Markets drop into correction territory, extending brutal week of losses

    ZOG is financially fucked as it isn't even a bear market but a sinking USS Tit-Antic as the Bubble Bursts, cum-cum, cum-cum


    WNN (Whigger Newz Nutwerk) jew Yawk/District of Corruption&Congoids) - The Dow Jones industrial average plunged nearly 1,200 points on Thursday, capping its worst four days since the 2008 financial crisis, when the jews took that sucker down to [s]elect Obongo the Kenyan Nigger jewsus and shut out Songbird McNasty, a warmongering neo-khan. Just as it says in Revelations when ZOG/Babylon has fallen has fallen, greedy jew and Boomer investors’ fears that global efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus were failing. Who would have thought that in an age of globull jet-travel that some Chink virus cum-cum from eating bats could take down not only gooks, but niggers and muzzies and possibly even whiggers, cum-cum, cum-cum!!!

    The Dow closed at 25,766.64 on Thursday, down 4.4 percent. The Standard & Poor’s 500 and the tech-rich Nasdaq also dove. The Dow is now nearly 13 percent off its recent high. Its 10-day plunge is the blue chips’ swiftest since 2011. All that shit made by chinks is no longer being made by gooks working in slave-labor camps so there is no more shit to buy. Face-masks are worth theys' weight in gold but none can be found.

    “Every day we think we could be near a bottom, and every day we are not,” Greedess Skankus, an analyst at the financial services firm Fickem, F*ckum & Howe, wrote in a note Thursday. "We's fucked !!! We's really really fucked !!!"

    In a blink, Wall Street’s free-fall this week erased one-third of stocks’ gains since President Trump’s November 2016 election and the goofy jew-kissing bandit / buffoon has no idea of what to do other than to beg Ivanka for a lap-dance. Amid mounting criticism of the administration’s mishandling of the epidemic, the pee-resident suddenly finds himself battling a medical, economic and political emergency as globalonialism cum-cum cum-cums a cropper.

    The health challenge was underscored by confirmation in California of the first U.S. case that could not be linked to travel to China or anything other than a biological warfare lab run either by the CIA or the PLA. Not even to coontact with a known coronavirus patient. On the economic front, Facebook fuktardscanceled its largest annual developer conference, while manufacturers worried about Chinese suppliers that have not yet resumed normal production due to dead, dying or missing gook slave laborers. Tesla’s stock price fell 13 percent Thursday alone. Everyone is stocking up on canned food and shotgun shells -- if they can find them.

    But even as the life-or-death stakes and the financial toll loomed, political considerations were inescapable. In crowded rallies and White House events, the soaring stock market has been a staple of Trump’s reelection pitch to voters. “Highest Stock Market in history, By Far!” the president tweeted just eight days ago, the Orange-Haired & skinned First Fuktard.

    On Monday, after a 1,032-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average, Trump — a billionaire real estate executive who prides himself on his financial acumen — doubled down, tweeting: “Stock Market starting to look very good to me! Today the same tard admitted that he was full of shit and nearly out of ZOGbux.

    It has continued falling ever since, and now after a brutal four-day stretch, the market looks anything but good. Some Wall Street veterans said the virus was an external shock that had awakened investors to a sobering outlook. The party is over.

    “We were operating in never-never land for some time,” said Deefus Wonder, managing partner of Westwood Capital, a New York-based investment bank. "Now the market has like a busting brazzier on a hooker really snapped us all on the heads of our pee-pees, cum-cum, cum-cum."

    The market reaction came one day after the president sought to reassure the nation at a White House news conference with members of his coronavirus task force, but was assailed for what critics said was a contradictory message.

    “He staked his presidency on containing the virus,” said David Kotok, chairman of Cumberland Advisors. “The markets have repudiated him with a 1,000-point drop on the heels of a 1,000-point drop.”

    The epidemic, which has spread from its origins in China to Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran, the United States and numerous other countries, seems certain to put a sizable dent in global growth. Earlier this week, Capital Economics in London warned that the economic consequences of the spread of the coronavirus to multiple continents “could be as bad as those of the global financial crisis.”

    The U.S. economy will average just 1.25 percent growth over the first half of the year, as the virus disrupts supply chains and keeps workers and shoppers on the sidelines, economist Michael Feroli of JPMorgan Chase wrote in a note to clients on Thursday. That would be roughly half the pace of last year.

    Whatever the danger to the U.S. economy, Europe seems to be in even worse shape. The continent’s major economies were expected to grow by little more than 1 percent before the virus forced Italy to lock down northern territories that are responsible for almost one-third of the country’s production.

    Now, recession looms as a genuine risk for Germany and Italy. After a decade of chronic weak growth and financial crises, European Central Bank officials have all but emptied their tool kit, leaving them with little ability to reverse the decline.

    And in the United States on Thursday, the three major indexes fell into correction territory, a 10 percent reversal from a recent high that signals something is amiss to numbers-obsessed Wall Street. The speed of the declines was startling, with the Dow Jones industrial average tumbling from its all-time peak in only 10 sessions. The blue-chip index lost more than 3,200 points this week and had its worst point drop in history on Thursday.

    “The Dow’s four-day decline this week is 11.13 percent, the worst since October 2008, when the blue chips fell 15 percent in four days,” said Howard Silverblatt of S&P Dow Jones Indices. The S&P has lost 12.04 percent in the last six sessions, which is also the fastest decline to correction since 2011.

    It’s unclear when the uncertainty over the global public health crisis will end, which is a major reason Wall Street investors remain on edge.

    “A 10 percent correction doesn’t mean anything to Joe Q. Public,” said Kenny Polcari of SlateStone Wealth. “But to Wall Street, which marks everything by numbers, it suggests a turning point in market psyche.”

    Polcari said the good news about the panic-driven correction is that it suggests an emotional response and may be only temporary.

    “A slower decline based on crumbling market fundamentals, which is not the case so far, would be more worrisome,” Polcari said.

    Analysts expected the market to rebound strongly after a worldwide plunge Monday. But coronavirus cases have continued to pop up around the world, squashing rallies. The extreme volatility could persist until there are signs that the outbreak is under control, analysts say, despite warnings from health officials that community spread in the United States appears inevitable.

    Default First US coronavirus death reported in Washington state

    First US coronavirus death reported in Washington state

    By Laura ItalianoFebruary 29, 2020 | 1:16pm


    The coronavirus has claimed its first life on US soil — a man in his 50s who died in a Seattle-area hospital, officials said Saturday.

    The grim news of a first fatality — and further dire revelations out of the Pacific Northwest, including a Washington State nursing home where as many as 50 patients and workers could be infected — shows the West Coast is now bearing the brunt of the nation’s growing COVID-19 crisis.

    On the East Coast, hundreds of cases are being monitored, but by Saturday night, the only diagnosed virus patient, in Boston, has recovered, according to federal officials.

    City health officials also had good news Saturday: The only patient who was being monitored for coronavirus has tested negative.

    That person had fallen ill following a trip to Italy, where 1,128 people have been infected, including 29 who have died.

    Worldwide, 87,000 people have fallen ill with the virus, and nearly 3,000 have died, mostly in Hubei province in central China, according to the latest global statistics, as tracked by Johns Hopkins University.

    Chinese scientists knew about the coronavirus in December, but were repeatedly ordered by Beijing to suppress the evidence, the Sunday Times of London reported.

    President Trump responded to the U.S. fatality and the growing global crisis by announcing new travel restrictions involving three hot-spot countries: Iran, Italy and South Korea.

    Foreigners who have traveled in those countries — as well as in China, where there is already a ban — must wait 14 days before entering the US.

    “We will do everything in our power to keep the virus and those carrying the infections from entering our country,” the president told a cheering crowd later Saturday, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.

    Few details were released about the man who died, other than that he had other underlying medical conditions and succumbed to the virus only hours after county health officials became aware that he was infected.

    But he is one of at least four patients in California, Oregon and Washington who have now caught the virus despite not having traveled outside the US.

    That means the four caught the coronavirus from local infected people yet to be identified, a scenario of grave concern to health-care experts.

    Another of the so-called “community-spread” patients is a teen boy from Snohomish County, Wash., whose high school will be closed for deep cleaning Monday, officials said.

    Meanwhile, the Life Care Center, a nursing home in Kirkland, Wash., was shaping up as the country’s first cruise-ship-style incubator of the virus. At least one health-care worker there and a female patient in her 70s had tested positive for the virus.

    Test results are still pending on as many as 50 other people connected to the home, including several residents with pneumonia.

    “We’re in the beginning stages of our investigation” into a potential outbreak centered on the home, said Dr. Jeff Duchin, Seattle and King County public health officer.

    Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency after the COVID-19 death.

    “We will continue to work toward a day where no one dies from the virus,” he said.

    But in New York, there was only good news and continuing caution.

    “Our latest information is no patients are now being monitored,” a city Department of Health spokesman told The Post on Saturday afternoon.

    Starting this week, samples from suspected patients in New York state will be tested in Albany, rather than sent to CDC headquarters in Atlanta.

    The city will begin local testing, using CDC-provided kits Tuesday, the spokesman said.

    Default The ZOG-Emperor Putz A Somber Face Upon the Death of Mighty Evil ZOG

    The ZOG-Emperor Putz A Somber Face Upon the Death of Mighty Evil ZOG


    Speaking from the Oval Office, Mr. Trump announced a suspension of travel from Europe for 30 days, starting on Friday.

    My fellow Americans, tonight I want to speak with you about our nation’s unprecedented response to the coronavirus outbreak that started in China and is now spreading throughout the world.

    Today, the World Health Organization officially announced that this is a global pandemic.

    We have been in frequent contact with our allies, and we are marshaling the full power of the federal government and the private sector to protect the American people.

    This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history. I am confident that by counting and continuing to take these tough measures, we will significantly reduce the threat to our citizens and we will ultimately and expeditiously defeat this virus.

    From the beginning of time, nations and people have faced unforeseen challenges, including large-scale and very dangerous health threats. This is the way it always was and always will be. It only matters how you respond, and we are responding with great speed and professionalism.

    Our team is the best anywhere in the world. At the very start of the outbreak, we instituted sweeping travel restrictions on China and put in place the first federally mandated quarantine in over 50 years. We declared a public health emergency and issued the highest level of travel warning on other countries as the virus spread its horrible infection.

    And taking early intense action, we have seen dramatically fewer cases of the virus in the United States than are now present in Europe.

    The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots. As a result, a large number of new clusters in the United States were seeded by travelers from Europe.

    After consulting with our top government health professionals, I have decided to take several strong but necessary actions to protect the health and well being of all Americans.

    To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. These restrictions will be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground.

    There will be exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screenings, and these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo, but various other things as we get approval. Anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing. These restrictions will also not apply to the United Kingdom.

    At the same time, we are monitoring the situation in China and in South Korea. And, as their situation improves, we will re-evaluate the restrictions and warnings that are currently in place for a possible early opening.

    Earlier this week, I met with the leaders of health insurance industry who have agreed to waive all co-payments for coronavirus treatments, extend insurance coverage to these treatments, and to prevent surprise medical billing.

    We are cutting massive amounts of red tape to make antiviral therapies available in record time. These treatments will significantly reduce the impact and reach of the virus.

    Additionally, last week, I signed into law an $8.3 billion funding bill to help C.D.C. and other government agencies fight the virus and support vaccines, treatments and distribution of medical supplies. Testing and testing capabilities are expanding rapidly, day by day. We are moving very quickly.

    The vast majority of Americans: The risk is very, very low. Young and healthy people can expect to recover fully and quickly if they should get the virus. The highest risk is for elderly population with underlying health conditions. The elderly population must be very, very careful.

    In particular, we are strongly advising that nursing homes for the elderly suspend all medically unnecessary visits. In general, older Americans should also avoid nonessential travel in crowded areas.

    My administration is coordinating directly with communities with the largest outbreaks, and we have issued guidance on school closures, social distancing and reducing large gatherings.

    Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow.

    Every community faces different risks and it is critical for you to follow the guidelines of your local officials who are working closely with our federal health experts — and they are the best.

    For all Americans, it is essential that everyone take extra precautions and practice good hygiene. Each of us has a role to play in defeating this virus. Wash your hands, clean often-used surfaces, cover your face and mouth if you sneeze or cough, and most of all, if you are sick or not feeling well, stay home.

    To ensure that working Americans impacted by the virus can stay home without fear of financial hardship, I will soon be taking emergency action, which is unprecedented, to provide financial relief. This will be targeted for workers who are ill, quarantined, or caring for others due to coronavirus.

    I will be asking Congress to take legislative action to extend this relief.

    Because of the economic policies that we have put into place over the last three years, we have the greatest economy anywhere in the world, by far.

    Our banks and financial institutions are fully capitalized and incredibly strong. Our unemployment is at a historic low. This vast economic prosperity gives us flexibility, reserves, and resources to handle any threat that comes our way.

    This is not a financial crisis, this is just a temporary moment of time that we will overcome together as a nation and as a world.

    However, to provide extra support for American workers, families, and businesses, tonight I am announcing the following additional actions: I am instructing the Small Business Administration to exercise available authority to provide capital and liquidity to firms affected by the coronavirus.

    Effective immediately, the S.B.A. will begin providing economic loans in affected states and territories. These low-interest loans will help small businesses overcome temporary economic disruptions caused by the virus. To this end, I am asking Congress to increase funding for this program by an additional $50 billion.

    Using emergency authority, I will be instructing the Treasury Department to defer tax payments, without interest or penalties, for certain individuals and businesses negatively impacted. This action will provide more than $200 billion of additional liquidity to the economy.

    Finally, I am calling on Congress to provide Americans with immediate payroll tax relief. Hopefully they will consider this very strongly.

    We are at a critical time in the fight against the virus. We made a lifesaving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe. We will not delay. I will never hesitate to take any necessary steps to protect the lives, health, and safety of the American people. I will always put the well being of America first.

    If we are vigilant — and we can reduce the chance of infection, which we will — we will significantly impede the transmission of the virus. The virus will not have a chance against us.

    No nation is more prepared or more resilient than the United States. We have the best economy, the most advanced health care, and the most talented doctors, scientists and researchers anywhere in the world.

    We are all in this together. We must put politics aside, stop the partisanship and unify together as one nation and one family.

    As history has proven time and time again, Americans always rise to the challenge and overcome adversity.

    Our future remains brighter than anyone can imagine. Acting with compassion and love, we will heal the sick, care for those in need, help our fellow citizens and emerge from this challenge stronger and more unified than ever before.

    God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you.
