I've been holding off from positing this publicly, as it's somewhat cynical, but the evidence is mounting. I suspect both Dems and Repubs in-the-know are participating at national and state levels to hype a low-level virus as an excuse to implement systems and spending.
Example: Suddenly Texas laws and taxpayer funds are being poured into research and response to outbreaks and systems of control for outbreaks. @Townhall and thr lawmakers suing @GregAbbott_TX aren't in opposition to exploitation, but how it's done.…
In state after state, "Republicans" are instituting nearly as draconian measures under the premise of fighting the #WuhanCoronavirus, even as it is getting increasingly difficult to hide the low-mortality nature of the disease and the nature of the response to it.

India & China to remain engaged in conversation both militarily & diplomatically even as Corps Commander level talks failed to resolve #LAC situation.
India must stand firm on withdrawal of Chinese forces to pre April position.
(India too should hold ground elsewhere along LAC.)
The 'giant ship' of India China relations has clearly hit an iceberg at Galwan & Pangong Tso & is bound to sink sooner than later given Chinese mentality. India should strengthen global cooperation with Australia, Japan, US and bring in Vietnam and other like minded nations too.
The Darbuk-Shyok-DBO road & feeders makes China uncomfortable even as China is ahead in infrastructure in the region. India must push ahead. India can & must reduce imports from China (people participation is a must here.Stop buying made in china now: Both Govt & people of India)

So this tweet generated quite an interesting discussion on my mentions earlier today.
Even though the circumstances regarding the WHO meet have changed by now, yet I will take some time to take this chain of thoughts forward.
Here goes ..
Let me share my thoughts on whether it is time for India to change her policy on Taiwan.
Firstly, why the current policy?
Well, this is due to the Paranoid Republic of China's insistence on the world recognizing Taiwan as their province, basically the 'One China Policy'
Never mind that the Taiwanese have been administering themselves for the past 71 years in a democratic republic that the Communist overlords of China can only find threatening to their very survival!
After all, how can a 'renegade' province of the Middle Kingdom be democratic!

Folks, sharing some thoughts about the Post-WuhanVirus world that have been playing in my mind.
Will talk about some happenings that are commonly known, without giving any links since that will be too much work at this time.
I'll share some links at the end of the thread tomorrow
Thoughts are still random and unstructured.
But I hope it'll make sense eventually.
Here goes ..
Firstly, let there be no doubt that it is a virus that has originated in China.
I'll not debate the veracity of this claim that I make, but I merely echo the general perception of the common man on the ground all across the globe when I say this.

Several Questions arise on what was the research going on for Development of SARS-CoV2 i.e. Covid-19 or what we call #WuhanCoronavirus or #CCPVirus ! Lets glance through scientific research going through the time lines.
In October 2007,Chinese scientists published a paper in Journal ‘American Association of Laboratory Animal Sciences’ where they claimed to have introduced a human ACE2 (hACE2) gene into mouse & infected them with Sars COV & found virus replicated for efficiently with lung damage.
In April 2010, in a paper coauthored by Shi Zhengli (Batwoman) they say we found several Bata Coronaviruses and tested with Human SARS-CoV Spike Protein using both HIV type based Pseudo types & SARS infection. 2 Bat Cov ACE2 receptors actually helped S Protien Entry entry.

Some people whose advise I cherish have taken issue with my choosing to align with @realDonaldTrump and begin calling the pandemic the #WuhanCoronaVirus. I understand the concerns, and yes, being reactionary goes against many of the values I hold onto.
But, history has shown that there are certain people who only understand fire for fire, even if your own fire is weaker, that is what they respect.

The Chinese are one of such.

They initially tried to do a PR blitz claiming that it was the US that was the origin of the virus.
That failed, so what are they now doing?

They are turning on "defenceless Africans" as they know that to a large extent our broke governments a) do not care about their people, and b) are only concerned about what they can get in terms of handouts, so will look the other way.

In my @BusinessDayNg column today, I talk about #Nigeria's selfish elite and why in a pandemic-laden environment that is exacting significant social and economic costs, enlightened self-interest is a moral and pragmatic imperative.
Unenlightened self-interest, in which most or all persons act according to their own myopic selfishness, means that the group suffers loss because of lack of cooperation, and the increased expense each individual pays for the protection of their own interests.
Unenlightened self-interest is why Nigerians' trust in government and its governing ability has plummeted from the heady days of optimism that marked our return to democratic rule.

This is why power, health, infrastructure and education have not been fixed.

The history doesn't support this my brother. Both @HQNigerianArmy, and recently @PoliceNG have a habit of disobedience and mutiny.

It's the reason why PIG's since Musiliu Smith have ordered patrols off highways when they come into office, only to find those orders disobeyed.
But too many of our people don't understand why our security services tend to behave like armies of occupation, rather than being placed there to protect and serve the people.

There is a historical reason for it, so let's talk about that...
On 16/12/1929, a man was killed around Opobo in the Aba Division of Southern #Nigeria.

His name was Aromasodu Alimi, and he was Yoruba by ethnicity, the only official male casualty of what the colonial authorities branded as the Aba Women's Riot. He was a policeman.

1/ After US & EU thanked #Taiwan’s donation of millions of masks, #China is now tightening its grip on freedom of speech even on video games in Taiwan. Swordsman Love 3 or JX3, is developed by Chines company Xishanju and its operation in Taiwan is proxied by Wanan International.
2/ But on April 4, Taiwanese players were banned from mentioning words like #Wuhancoronavirus and #LiWenliang even on Taiwan server! Taiwan’s players were snitched by Chinese cyber warriors, with thousands of their accounts frozen. It sparked an outcry on Taiwan’s social media.
3/ The Chinese developer put pressure on Wanin to “handle the issue with real action”, but Wanin defied the political pressure and vowed to defend the freedom of speech of Taiwan players. Less than 30 minutes, the Chinese side decided to terminate the cooperation agreement.

Amazingly for a regime that PUNISHES free speech and has banned Twitter itself, the comrades in China seem particularly 'sensitive' to twitter hashtags such as #ChinaVirus, #ChineseVirus, #ChinaLiedPeopleDied, #MadeInChinaVirus, #WuhanCoronaVirus, #ChinaCoronaVirus etc.
The 'counter attack' to preserve 'face' by the minions of Xi 'Winnie The Pooh' Jinping is led by none other than his own Ghafoora who recently returned from a stint in Terroristan.
But then, he is hardly doing any good to the cause.
However, given the way this #ChineseGhafoora goes about his business, one cannot help but wonder if he is suitable to be even a clerk in the foreign ministry, let alone their spokesperson!
Or maybe he is deliberately sabotaging Shri Xi? 🤔

THREAD (1/n)👇👇👇

Is it reasonable to call #coronavirus the “Chinese virus” or "Wuhan virus"?

Chinese Americans & refugees I queried are saying yes. But others are saying it's racist.

It originated in #China. Why is African swine fever virus named so?

But let's go deeper…
(2/n) After having massively mishandled #coronavirus in #China & hiding it for at least a month & a half, the Chinese communist party has gone into overdrive with pro-#CCP and anti-American propaganda.

Here's our own @EpochTimes thread documenting this:
(3/n) According to the #CCP, it's a savior both internally and globally. In reality, the CCP's #coronavirus statistics are highly suspect; it's questionable has actually been contained; draconian measures were taken internally; & the #CCP's secrecy has cost thousands of lives.

@netre25 shared great advice for the pandemic, "The important news/information from Israel on how to manage the spread of the virus is this. Those carrying the virus and unintentionally spreading the virus are young healthy people in the 20/30 age group." 1) #COVID19
They get the virus & have excellent immune systems to resist & not fall victim to the virus. But they are powerful carriers of the virus & infect other, more vulnerable, people they come in contact with, including parents & grandparents & members of the public...2)
who have much lower levels of immune systems.
These are the ones that fall victim to the virus. From Israel the news is clear. Force the young people to take more personal responsibility because they are the main carriers.

.@MarkSteynOnline making a good point: time to revisit reusable fabric tote bags?

Since we're taking critical steps to protect our seniors. we should keep in mind if you're using a reusable tote bag you are likely bringing germs BACK into the grocery store

@MarkSteynOnline "A 2011 study ...found only 3% of shoppers with multi-use bags said they regularly washed them. The same study found bacteria in 99% of bags tested; half carried coliform bacteria while 8% carried E. coli, an indicator of fecal contamination."…
"These reusable tote bags can sustain the COVID-19 and flu viruses — and spread the viruses throughout the store."

Do your part: Use plastic bags to stop the spread of the #WuhanCoronavirus…

In this worldwide battle against #CoronavirusPandemic originated from #China. we can fight together & overcome this war.

1/ For #HKers, we have learnt a bitter lesson during 2003 SARS outbreak with 299 deaths. Ppl know that the Chinese government often cover up the outbreak.
2/ Learnt from our experiences, #Hongkongers share some secret remedies to combat the virus - wearing masks, staying at home, travelling less and being critical about the government’s words.
3/ While HK leader #CarrieLam acts against medical experts’ advice & asks ppl not to wear masks, we simply disregard unscientific restrictions & secure mask supplies by ourselves. We even call for border seal with China to stop spread of #WuhanCoronavirus originated from #China.

Ok, let's explain why the US is in a good position to deal with #WuhanCoronavirus relative to single payer systems thanks to capitalism relative to the Euro healthcare systems we constantly get lied to about.

The US has about 4 to 6 times as many ICU beds per capita as the UK.

The UK, Italy, and other public systems have almost no surge their only means of controlling costs is care rationing.

The UK has regular "winter crises" from the freaking flu every single year because they increase demand for care, because why not go if its *free* and you already paid for it during taxation?

The data on #COVID19 shows that the death rate in Wuhan and other impacted places in china is 3% above the average which threw off death rate estimates.

Only recently did China stop censoring speech about the virus & the doctor who discovered it who's now dead...
I don't have a doubt in my mind that China's suppression of the virus caused thousands of more people to get sick without treatment, which led to an alarming death rate.

The death rate caused the global media to panic and thus make its viewers panic...
Now, we know that the global average death rate for #COVID19 is actually less than the flu, which gives no cause for severe alarm, yet schools and athletics are being cancelled, domestic & international trips have been cancelled for many corporations.

Dear friends, as someone from Hong Kong, I have the following advice for you no matter which part of the world you are inhibiting in right now:

1. Do not leave home. Perhaps do so only for grocery shopping once in a while....
2. Wear a mask once you leave home. Throw away your mask and wash your hands carefully when you got back.

3. Remember this is brought to you by the authoritarian regime in China, which covered up the outbreak in December and January....
The first doctor who revealed it was warned by the police and asked to shut up. He was infected and died.

4. After the outbreak, urge your government to boycott and help topple the authoritarian regime in China - especially for the governments who have been doing business...

Thread by @ErkinSidick: How you feel when you read a headline like: “Mainland Chinese media demands an apology from the rest of the world for the sacrifice China has made for #coronavirus”? Some people might want to vomit or throw up, just like me. 1/m Image
But, wait, look at this: “If affairs are undertaken which the enemy is ashamed to perform, (a country) profits.” Do you know where this came from? It came from a book titled: “The book of Lord Shang”. Its Preface has this phrase: “The Lord of Shang held high office 2/m
in the state of Ch’in between 359 and 338 B.C., and the book which bears his name is regarded as belonging to the School of Law.” Explaining this subject fully requires to write a long article as the minimum, but let me skip that this time. 3/m

The #CoronaVirusDeathCount globally is now 3,001 which reflects 3.39% of all the 88,339 cases.

The #CoronaVirusDeathRate varies from 0.56% in South Korea at this time; to 2.00% in Italy (after its massive update) to 5.52% in Iran.
After its massive #CoronaVirusUpdate, 0.002% of Italy's population is infected with the #CoronaVirus.

If 3 million Italians will get infected, it will be 5%.

Some people in the political/financial media want you to think this will come close to happening. Sad fools. Or hacks.
If u believe the bleakest about #WuhanCoronavirus, namely, that things are 10 times worse than official dara, then 3.1% of the population is infected in a city that has everything wrong in it to cause a virus to spread like crazy. Meaning, everywhere else will remain MUCH lower!

Qué sucedió en China antes del brote del coronavirus de Wuhan? Es pura coincidencia? Ó es un plan secreto de una guerra sin restricción?
