I've done the whole thing! Full transcript of the entire 56 min of top-secret recording of the #War Mobilization Meeting of #CCP's #PLA's Southern War Zone & #Guangdong Province. #Taiwan #Japan #US in danger
jenniferzengblog.com/home/2022/5/16…
After listening to this recording many times, I am more convinced that it is true. I've checked all the names of the people, factories, labs, etc, mentioned in the meeting. They do exist and match the public information. I knew none of these people or entities before.
Therefore, this file is unlikely just something made up by a nobody. At least the people talking in the meeting know all those things and names that I don't know.
Plus, I don't see any point in faking such a file. For fun? For damaging my credit? It was not provided to me.

Leaked Secret Audio: #WarMobilization Meeting of #Guangdong Province of China: Normal to #War State Transition
Audio released by @lude_media. I did the translation. See comments for more.
Is Guangdong in a war state now? I cannot independently verify or falsify this audio file. But this is a truthful translation of the Chinese. Given the #CCP's other moves in recent years, including the insane #ZeroCovid policy, tightened border control, cancellation of...
5 major international sports events, "internal circulation" economic policy, the establishment of a unified national purchase and sale market, etc, I believe this file should be shared. If this is true, the CCP is seriously preparing for war.

The recent Covid-19 shock will cast greater impacts on eastern coastal areas. Considering the virus-hit major provinces and cities contributing 40% of the total GDP, the lockdowns could have dragged the GDP growth by 1 percent point. #China #EconTwitter 3/n

1. A recap on #China electricity shortage, National Development and Reform Commission (#NDRC) that’s at the center of news, and what’s next.
2. Like any sudden shortage, it’s demand, supply, low slack and sudden shock. Due to low price of Coal in 2020 right after Covid, and government's push to reduce overcapacity and carbon emissions, coal inventory was low. China electricity is 70%+ coal power.
3. This September 3rd Moody’s report on coal sector was a 2 weeks early to be noticed. They mention 10 largest producers – all SOEs – accounted for nearly 53% of China's coal production in 2020, while three regions represented 70% of total production

I've mentioned several times since #DeltaVariant appeared: it seems to burn bright but short, meaning cases suddenly explode near-vertically, but also, without too much effort, collapse as forcefully. Two months up, two down.
Because it binds & replicates faster, #Delta creates a higher viral load which triggers symptoms in a host much faster. I tried to explain that, although scary, it's actually good news for our pandemic fight, if #SARS2 finally reveals itself sooner.
Studies show the average incubation period for #Delta, the time from exposure -> symptoms 1st apparent, decreased 5.2 -> 4.4 days. Depending on the disease, the person may be contagious during the incubation & for #COVID, that period can be unusually long.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Scattered picture emerging out of #China manufacturing sector on when factories reopen. Key points: don’t expect them to open on Feb 10 - initial date set by authorities. Expect inconsistency, overzealous local officials, & mask shortage to drag out restart in #globalsupplychain.
In #Guangdong Province, there is no official notice on when factories should reopen. However, many localities urging companies to stay shut until Mar 1. For eg., Lecong county in city of #Foshan encourages all companies not to resume work until Mar 1.
Police of Huangpu district in city of #Zhongshan posted on their social media WeChat account companies shouldn’t resume work before Mar 1 without permission.
