🚨January 31: Trump signs Presidential Proclamation 9984 responding to coronavirus

This from med journal Stat: "...Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich), a prominent conspiracy theorist and early Trump supporter, had agitated on Twitter for a Chinese travel ban..."

"argumentum ad Cernovich"

'You have only to associate an idea, however loosely, with Mike Cernovich for that idea to be discredited.

Anything that could be remotely imputed to him renders it completely unworthy of further mental consideration'

Horrible.
oh, and Biden said this

CCP "has tightened its grip on the internet..media & civil society. It has deeper pockets & a greater ability to control the flow of info.[Thus], many of the media outlets, advocacy groups, activists &others who held the gov't accountable in 2003 have been silenced or sidelined."

Coronavirus
All you need to know.

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that are common among animals. In rare cases, they are what scientists call zoonotic, meaning they can be transmitted from animals to humans.
The virus can make people sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory track illness, similar to a common cold.

Symptoms

* Running nose
* Headache
* Cough
* Sore throat
* Fever
* Feeling of being unwell
For those those with a weakened immune system, the elderly and the very young, there's a chance the virus could cause a lower, and much more serious respiratory tract illness like pneumonia or bronchitis.

Thread on internet connectivity in #Wuhan, #China:

Network data from the last ten days show a gradual fall beginning 17 January 2020.

The decline is consistent with population exodus as residents either flee the city closing up shop due to #coronavirus or for #LunarNewYear 📉
Diurnal internet connectivity falls similar to #Wuhan were observed in the US last year corresponding to mandatory hurricane evacuations.

These can be distinguished from power outages and flooding, with #HurricaneDorian the most recent reported 🌪
netblocks.org/reports/hurric…
Meanwhile the China Education and Research Network #CERNET that connects research facilities and universities has adopted an apparent internet curfew cycle in #Wuhan.

Connectivity falls between 12 am and 6 am daily from 22 January onward for unknown reasons and with no reports📉

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).

1/18 With the MSM fear porn push of highlighting 17 deaths I thought it timely to do a dig into #CoronaVirus #SARI #QAnon
2/ Wuhan was once briefly the capital of China, and is located in central China. Cities are beginning to be put in lock down just as #LunarNewYear celebrations see mass movement of people as they return to their country homes... #CoronaVirus #SARI #QAnon
3/ Wuhan has the only lab in China capable of studying the virus, along with SARS, AIDS and Ebola. The lab forms part of China's “One Belt, One Road” initiative... #CoronaVirus #SARI #QAnon

Vou trazer algumas curiosidades acerca do Ano-Novo Lunar que achei legal.
1. Chineses celebram hoje a chegada do Ano do Porco, que vai até o dia 25 de janeiro de 2020.
2. Chineses não chamam o feriado de Ano Novo Chinês. Na China, as festividades são conhecidas como "Festival de Primavera" ou "Ano-Novo Lunar" - o ano-novo é determinado pelo calendário. E os chineses não são os únicos que abraçam estra tradição. Coreia e o Vietnã são exemplos.
