CDC says Americans need to get prepared because coronavirus could “gain a foothold” in U.S.
By: Ethan Huff
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) held a media telebriefing the other day during which it was revealed that the Wuhan coronavirus will probably “gain a foothold” in the U.S., and that Americans need to prepare accordingly.
After discussing the CDC’s mistake in accidentally releasing a coronavirus patient from the hospital prematurely, the telebriefing eventually moved to the topic of the virus eventually gaining a foothold in the U.S. and leading to community spread.
The CDC says it is currently developing a set of guidelines to give practitioners so they can effectively deal with the situation when it inevitably unfolds. Though parts of the call are difficult to discern, the gist of it is that we more than likely ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Full audio of the call if you’d like to listen to it is available at the CDC website.
They still aren’t even sure what we’re up against
In her notes, FluTracker.com’s Sharon Sanders highlights how the CDC now suspects that the incubation period for the novel coronavirus could actually be 24 days instead of 14 days, which is something we also reported.
The CDC is also sending test kits all across the country, though this could turn out to be mostly useless as these test kits were found recently to produce lots of false negatives.
Interestingly enough, the telebriefing call also addressed the issue of warmer weather possibly lowering transmission rates, which is something President Trump brought up recently. While normal influenza does tend to taper off by the time spring arrives, officials don’t know whether or not the coronavirus will respond similarly.
Be sure to listen below as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, talks about how the death rate from the coronavirus is more than likely far higher than two percent, otherwise communist China wouldn’t be keeping factories closed past the Chines Lunar New Year:
If China’s health system collapses, then what?
The latest reports out of China show that more than 1,700 health workers living under the regime are now infected with the coronavirus, which increasingly threatens the viability of China’s already embattled health care system.
“At present, the duties of medical workers at the front are indeed extremely heavy,” stated Chinese National Health Commission Vice Minister Zeng Yixin, to the media, certifying 1,716 cases of COVID-19, as they’re now calling it, in medical workers throughout China.
“Their working and resting circumstances are limited, the psychological pressures are great, and the risk of infection is high,” he added.
As health authorities here in America continue their watch domestically, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that a team of 12 international investigators is headed to China this weekend to work on mitigatory plans over there, the goal being to better understand how this thing is spreading.
“The goal of the joint mission is to rapidly inform the next steps in the COVID-19 response and preparedness activities in China and globally,” stated WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom during a recent briefing.
“Particular attention will be paid to understanding the transmission of the virus, the severity of disease and the impact of ongoing response measures.”
Meanwhile, Cui Tiankai, China’s ambassador to the U.S. has confirmed that Dr. Li Wenliang, who first warned about the novel coronavirus on social media only to be punished by the communist Chinese regime for doing so – Dr. Li has since died from the coronavirus himself – was right all along.
“With the benefit of hindsight, everybody knew that Dr. Li was right,” Cui is quoted as saying.
