Daily media briefing on #COVID19 with @DrTedros…
@DrTedros "As of 6am GVA time this morning, #China has reported a total of 75,567 cases of #COVID19 to WHO, including 2,239 deaths.

In the past 24 hours, 🇨🇳 has reported 892 new confirmed cases and 118 deaths"-@DrTedros #coronavirus
@DrTedros "The significant 📉 in confirmed cases is partly due to another change in the way 🇨🇳 reports numbers.
Last week 🇨🇳 started reporting clinically-diagnosed cases, in addition to lab-confirmed cases. They have now switched back to reporting suspected & lab-confirmed cases"-@DrTedros

1. Did you know that John F. Kennedy‘s “favorite quote was really from Dante.” ”The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.”
Not actually found in Dante’s work but based on the Inferno!🔥
2. JFK’s fav quote based on Dante’s Divine Comedy, Inferno.
Why might this be important? B/c it points us to #Epstein Island Temple on Little St James.
Recall security camera capture by RC of the many levels of stairs beneath the Temple? Maybe new for some.
#Q also pointed there.
3. So a little history on Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is needed.
I’m only going to touch on a couple points.
No I have not read it, I think a deeper dive in the future might happen. But for now we’re just going to review a few standouts in order to get thread up & going😉...

Corona virüsü ile ilgili şuna kendimizi hazırlamamız lazım:

Hepimize bulaşacak!

Bir hekim olarak beklediğim geleceği kısaca anlatacağım.

Coronavirüs hastalığı, Dünya Sağlık Örgütü'nün yeni verdiği isimle COVID-19, grip gibi tüm dünyaya ve tüm insanlara yayılacak.

Dünyanın ve insanların kalıcı bir hastalığı olacak.
Corona virüs hastalığını griple aynı gibi düşünebiliriz bu açıdan.

Tek farkı: daha öldürücü.

Dünya nüfusunun en az %2sinin önümüzdeki 2 sene içinde ölmesinden bahsediyoruz.

For people asking why the virus is bad and how it kills people please read this from the news in China. It shows how deadly it can potentially be and why it's not "just the flu"

Translation in thread below:

[What is an "inflammatory storm"? ]
The new type of coronavirus continues to replicate after entering the human body, destroying a large number of normal cells and causing lung damage. At the same time, the infected cells alert the human immune system, and the immune system will
release antagonistic cytokines. They will attract lymphocytes distributed in other parts to the lesion site to kill microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. .

When a large number of cytokines are released into the blood in a short period of time, a "cytokine storm" or

Mini-outbreaks of #coronavirus in Beijing heighten fears. Clusters detected at two hospitals in part of #China capital home to gov’t offices like Finance Ministry, central bank & financial institutions. “Infection density” in district “just lower” than Wuhan, state media reports.
“According to a table which compares the ‘infection density’ of cities or areas — the number of confirmed cases per square kilometer —Xicheng district ranks second, with an infection density just lower than the epicenter Wuhan.” @globaltimesnews…
Zhongnanhai, the central HQ of #China Communist Party and State Council, is in Xicheng district. It houses the offices of President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang. #coronavirus

I love how Twitter and @oneunderscore__ seem to know for certain that possible HIV signatures in the #coronavirus spike glycoprotein is 'medical misinformation'. The fucking thing RESPONDS TO TREATMENT with HIV medication. Or was @zerohedge permanently banned for nothing?
@oneunderscore__ @zerohedge Then there's some dickhead underneath the Twitter warning saying 'there's absolutely no indication it was man made.'


Because hyper-contagious variants of Corona with 35k of psychotic RNA payload just spontaneously evolve and then get loose on Chinese New Year.
Ignore what 'experts' SAY and instead watch what governments DO.

- China's economy is currently frozen
- hundreds of millions of people there are currently quarantined
- there are 15 military #coronavirus camps currently set up on US soil

It's just the flu bro...

More on #COVID19 - Three members of #China's central taskforce for the #coronavirus epidemic showed up at a press conference to share their clinical findings. Here are some main takeaways -
1. Deputy Chief of Beijing's Chaoyang Hospital, Tong Chao-Huei, said serious symptoms usually happen to patients in their 50s and 60s and many of them already have pre-existing medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes.
Tong said many of these patients suffered from getting enough oxygen, which accelerates the deterioration of their symptoms. Additionally, #coronavirus not only attacks patients' lungs, like SARS, but it also attacks patients' hearts and kidneys.

@DrTedros "As of 6am GVA time this morning, #China has reported 74,675 cases of #COVID19 to WHO, including 2121 deaths.

The data from 🇨🇳 continue to show a decline in new cases. Once again, we’re encouraged by this trend, but this is no time for complacency"-@DrTedros #coronavirus
@DrTedros "Outside #China, there are now 1076 #COVID19 cases in 26 countries, with seven deaths.

There's been a lot of talk about "asymptomatic" #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 #coronavirus patients and transmission. But a lot of people (including myself) don't always have a good idea of what that means.
Obviously "asymptomatic" on it's own means "without symptoms," but to understand why that's so tricky it's critical to know that symptoms are disease features that are reported largely by patients.
Patients are notorious for being wrong. This is not to say that doctors are always right or that patients are deliberately wrong, but it's hard to rely on extremely minor self-reported symptoms like a runny nose, a cough, or a sneeze to determine whether someone is "symptomatic"

This is a topic we raised in September 2017, but I haven't commented this for a while.

Thus, I think it's good time to remind all, why we have experienced so nascent recovery from the GFC.

A thread on why global growth has waned.

We, naturally, start with this. 👇 1/
Global productivity growth stagnated in 2012. This is something that should not happen outside major crises, as shown in the figure above.

So, what's going on?

We dealt with the topic extensively in the March 2019 issue of our Q-Review. 👇2/…
Already in June 2013, we warned that:

"It is possible that the banking sector and the world economy were saved by using too strong methods in 2008. As a consequence of this, it is also possible that the world economy is more like zombie economy, where... 3/

Official #China #coronavirus figures today: infected 74,677; additional probably infected 4,922; Recovered 16,588; dead 2,122 (yes we all know the figures don't capture all cases). Over 24 hours #Hubei added only an extra 349 cases compared to around 1,700 the day before.
Buuuuut! Would you believe that #Hubei has gone back to the old way of counting "infected" #coronavirus cases again. So, apart from providing an explanation for a drop in cases, we now have the trend mapping messed up again. So in Hubei back to needing a lab result to be counted.
This is problematic because given the flawed nature of the counting (definitely not catching all cases) the most useful aspect of the official #coronavirus numbers has been watching the trend to see if the sickness spreading/receding. Each time the accounting changes it stuffs it

[No one can fight an endless war with limited weapons]

1/ Unfortunately, this piece appeals to identity politics & loses touch with reality in #HK, especially #HKGov's messy mishandling over the past few weeks. It's #quarantine rule is entirely toothless.…
2/ Though people returned from #China are required to be quarantined, they can actually leave home during 14-day incubation. Although inflected with #COVID19, a Wuhan couple were also found fled from hospital to escape from quarantine.
3/ All these mean the concern over community spread is real. And concerns grow when our adjacent province, Guangdong, is now the second hardest-hit after Hubei. Don’t forget, over 80 cities in #China have already been sealed to stop the virus spread.

#BREAKING: Security forces of #Iran's Islamic Regime including #IRGC Ground Force are now sending their troops and military equipment including these MRAPs to the city of #Qom in-order to establish military curfew over #CoronaVirus outbreak & death of two people in the city!
#BREAKING: Another video shows arrival of the MRAPs of #IRGC Ground Force at the entry points of the city of #Qom for military curfew and closure of main roads to the city over the #CoronaVirus outbreak in the city!
Video shows a #CoronaVirus infected patient who was transported from #Qom to #Tehran's Farmaniyeh hospital. He was a high profile patient (probably relative of a regime authority).

Simpsons nailed it again. Damn. Video below.
All locations they said are the same as CDC now reports.
Ends up CDC was already quarantining people at Logan.
So add Boston to the mix.…

It seems like a good time to remind everyone, why we are heading into an economic crisis.

A thread on the fragility of the global #economy.

There, naturally, is no other place to start than this.👇 1/
@CNBCJulianna @KellyCNBC @SaraEisen @GeoffCutmore
Yet, everything begins from the GFC.

Like we noted in a blog published on the 10th anniversary of the failure of Lehman Brothers, very little has actually been fixed in the global financial system.👇 2/…
While the US banks are now bigger than before 2008 crisis, the biggest problems lay in Europe.

The European banks remained under-capitalized and filled with toxic assets, and the policies of the #ECB made everything worse. 👇 3/…

Hoy apreciamos el 4to día consecutivo de disminución en los casos totales en observación (en tratamiento + en sospecha): de 65,837 el 12 de febrero, a 63,133 (-4%), reduciendo poco a poco la presión en el sistema sanitario.

El lunes, el Centro de Control de Enfermedades (CCDC) publicó un estudio de mortandad en más de 44 mil casos confirmados:

- La mayoría de los casos es en gente de 30-69
- El 81% de los casos son leves
- El 4.7% llegan a “estado crítico” (fallo respiratorio, shock séptico, fallo de órganos)
- La mitad de los casos críticos terminan en deceso
- La mortandad es de 2.8% en hombres y de 1.7% en mujeres

Initial tests confirm two cases of the Corona virus in the city of Qom, central #Iran.

The regime has been keeping a lid on all reports of Corona cases in Iran, fearing concerns will prevent people from taking part in Friday's parliamentary elections.
#Iran's Deputy Minister for Roads & Transportation said Mahan Air (affiliated to the IRGC) "has been allowed a limited number of flights" to China despite a general government ban on flights to prevent a coronavirus outbreak in the country.…
-At least four suspicious deaths in Greater Tehran prison. Other inmates told they have brain meningitis.
-Numerous prisoners quarantined in a room. Other inmates told they have influenza. Signs indicate a suspicious illness that could be the Coronavirus.

Insufficient research is coming out of #China on the subset of #coronavirus/ #COVID19 patients experiencing cytokine storm, which is apparently the cause of deaths attributable to “multi-organ failure” & which was also seen w/ #SARS patients… (1/3)
… in particular, we need to know what’s triggering this massive immunological “cytokine storm” response in some patients and what they might all share in common.

#China’s authorities have also said re-infection w/ #coronavirus/#COVID19 *might* be possible. If true… (2/3)
… (3/3) we need to know if the risk for cytokine storm is increased in this subset of patients.

As they‘d no-longer be immunologically naïve to #coronavirus/#COVID19, this subset of re-infected patients *could* theoretically be at greater risk for this very dangerous condition.

Trading is what smart people use for making good money out of markets. However, to save & grow the money, #MutualFundSahiHai

Start early.

To get 1 crore at age 60 assuming 12% rate of interest -

It only costs SIP of Rupees 1550 at age 25, which continued till 60 makes 1 Crore
Every delay in 5 years of starting sip makes us invest almost double. Let Compound interest work in our favour and not against us.

Check the calculations at
Keep increasing the SIP amount to reach goals quicker.

Stay invested to achieve your goals. #coronavirus or US Iran war won't impact you in the long term.

@ZellaQuixote The automated coronavirus/YouTube traffic looks like a lot of unrelated accounts rather than a single botnet. Much of it (698 tweets from 125 accounts) was tweeted via WordPress; among the WordPress traffic is @TheLastRefuge2, official account of the Conservative Treehouse blog.
@ZellaQuixote @TheLastRefuge2 Retweet network for coronavirus tweets with YouTube links. The largest node is @OANN (official account of the right-wing media organization of the same name.) Other prominent right-wing accounts show up too - @StefanMolyneux, @SenTomCotton, and the aforementioned @TheLastRefuge2.
