so here is some great news, that is probably way too late. African countries are getting their first test kits and training to use them.

we don't even know what don't know.

further, the article points out that many major african airlines have not suspended flights to china, and there are millions of Chinese living in Africa.

when an infectious disease expert that has worked with SARS and ebola was scared when he visited the ship, something is very very wrong:

so sounds like korea is heating up. cluster among that church seems to be exploding, and a man died of the virus, but was only discovered to have it after he died.

https://abcnews.go.com/amp/Internationa ... d=69100643

meanwhile, china cases dropping; sort of. They fucked with the stats again. just define it a way. works for the u.s. national deficit, why not a virus. rainbows and pandas for everyone!!!!

so seems those Americans that tested positive were put on the plane flown home, over the objections of the CDC by the trump administration state department.

que bueno, let's do politics before science. that will teach this bug a lesson.

so I stumbled across this doctor on YouTube that has been giving well done presentations and explanations of what is going on each day with the outbreak, based on the data and news available. nice, calm, just the facts. no hysteria type crap.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1-ZGJz5ci1Q

there was an interesting comment, not sure if it is true, there are 300 cruise ships currently around the world with over 500,000 passengers on board. That makes for a very well traveled virus, once all those people get off and fly home.

seems iran has a fairly robust cluster and several deaths.

I have been wondering if there will be a straight line between countries that are politically and economically dependent on china, and the number of cases.

for example, will Venezuela have big numbers, or Panama, first simply due to the free flow of trade with China. I am almost certain at this point Africa has mass spread going on without detection. just way too many Chinese in Africa to believe there are no cases, given that most any country with a medical system capable of detecting has something, or at least has repatriated someone that was infected.

south America is still virus free, but that is going to end when those cruise ship passengers make their way back.

so seems a plane was denied authorization to land in Turkey because it had people from the cruise line on board, even though they had no cases on board.

so iran has warned they believe it is in every major city, and have traced it to a chinese worker in a city. meanwhile Canada believes a Canadian that return and tested positive contracted it in iran.

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/02/22/asia ... index.html

Japan is reporting among a bunch of new cases three teenagers contracted it.

stats are suggesting it is almost none existent among children under about 10 -12; but so far there have been a few reported cases among teens in china.

again, can not recommend enophe Dr. Campbell's briefs and chats on the virus related news and data of the day.

here is this morning's

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=i0xEbNh8x8U

People in the comments keep saying that they are getting better info and briefs from him than all the CDC, WHO, and all the other diese control institutions combined.

I have to say I agree, and it is probably for one single reason: no politics contaminating the information he is commenting on.

Think about it. Even relatively "independent" institutions have bosses, budget committees, etc, that they can not rub the wrong way. so, they have to be very careful about what they say to the public. Just that "self censorship" is a dangerous thing in this situation, even from a delay stand point, because the info is not getting out in a timely manner, with a proper context. which we know a info vacuum in these situations causes panic and allows the rumor and conspiracy crap to take over and drown out the good info. Of course, people then start doing stupid shit, like not letting a plane land, rioting over news that exposed people might visit their area, etc.
