In October of 2019 a researcher at Johns-Hopkins Center for Health Security predicted 65 million people could die of coronavirus worldwide within 18 months under the right circumstances.
By December 31, China was reporting its first case of a mutated coronavirus infection. It took only one day for the US Centers for Disease Control to identify a seafood market in Wuhan, China as the epicenter of the outbreak.
A Reuters news report claims the newly mutated coronavirus wasn't identified until January 10 and hospitals in Wuhan didn't have testing kits till January 20, with testing prior that date taking 3-5 days because they had to be sent to a laboratory in Beijing. So how did the CDC all the way in the U.S. so quickly identify Wuhan as the hub of a coronavirus outbreak?
Of interest, Wuhan is the location for China's Institute of Virology. Authorities are calling this a coincidence.
One wonders if the current epidemic isn't actually a contrived and pre-planned reality drill to see how the world would handle such a pandemic? All the usual suspects participated in the drill planning, pharmaceutical company executives, the World Bank, public health authorities, news media execs, and representatives for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Why did the Johns-Hopkins doctor pick a mutated coronaviral pandemic instead of some other virus?
I write this report on January 29, 2020. The 11-million city of Wuhan, China is gripped by the coronavirus. Quarantines are in place. Fear of the spread of the virus is omnipresent. The weather is wintery. The temperate chilly, 44° Fahrenheit/7° Celsius. Cloudy skies will predominate over the next few days. The UV index in Wuhan goes unreported by news media. On a scale of 1 (lowest)-10 (highest), the UV index in Wuhan is ~3-4 at the height of the crisis. Wuhan is 30.5928° North latitude and it is unlikely for its residents to obtain enough sunlight to produce sufficient amounts of vitamin in winter months.
One study (2012) reveals vitamin D deficiency in China is rampant (percentage of vitamin D deficiency among Beijing and Shanghai adults of 69.2%).
