The symptoms of infection are similar to influenza and pneumonia.
Some Indian virologists published a paper that found similarities with AIDS virus and strange inserts in the protein structure of the virus that indicated might have been a bioweapon. This fuelled conspiracy theories and hence the paper was withdrawn.
One US senator asked China whether the virus was a bioweapon that got out of hand.
However, everyone from the Chinese authorities to the WHO say that the new ‘coronavirus’ is a new virus – COVID-19 (a.k.a. 2019-nCoV).
Because of this, testing kits are not available. The kits will have to identify unique protein sequences in the new virus and provide an indicator mechanism. (Read “Coronavirus: White House concedes US lacks enough test kits”; 6 March 2020; BBC)
So, how are so many deaths attributed to the 2019-nCoV?
The symptoms of 2019-nCoV are similar to pneumonia and influenza. If a visitor from an affected such as China dies with symptoms of either disease, the cause is labelled as coronavirus. Some science!
In 2019-2020 flu season in the US, 20,000 people are supposed to have died from flu.
While such a high number of people dying from an infectious disease in a developed country is unbelievable, how are these deaths different from the ones attributed 2019-nCoV?
When testing kits are not there, 2019-nCoV deaths could be anywhere from zero or 20,000, if we considered influenza symptoms alone.
Also missing from the news is any discussion is the bioweapons program of the United States.
The swiftness with which ZeroHedge’s Twitter account was suspended shows the acute sensitivities of the Pentagon CBW program.
