If 76,000 are infected in Wuhan, how many are infected in all of China?
Coronavirus & the Numbers
There have been a number of questions regarding (1) can we trust the numbers from China, and (2) why recoveries are not higher. First, the US has sent the CDC and the WHO is on top of it. There are cases outside of China and so far they display the same death rate of less than 3%. There is nothing so far to indicate that China is hiding anything. So it is no point in speculating. We have to wait for the facts. China cannot hide the death rate since others have the virus outside of China. All they can do is hide the number of infected but that remains to be seen as well. China has shut down transportation and delayed the holiday travels. This clearly shows that China is trying to contain the virus and is acting responsibly.
As for the recovery rate being small, it appears that it takes 2 to 3 weeks to recover much like a flu. This is not alarming at this stage in the game. As I have posted yesterday which is confirmed now by many other sources, the rate of infections spreading is far greater than SARS which infected less than 9,000 cases worldwide. This version spreads much more easily. but the death rate still remains below 3%. There is just no point in always portraying something as the latest thing to end the world. The claims this was a biological weapon leak to it was stolen from Canada all were just conspiracy theories. That gets pretty tiring after a while but it seems to be a contagion itself which spans the world of disease to even technology like Y2K, and even Climate Change. Don’t forget, we are all supposed to be dead by now or drowning because of rising sea levels. They have kept moving it from 2000 to 2010, then 2020, and then we have only five years to live. Obviously, former President Obama did not believe his own warnings of climate doom and rising sea levels since he bought a house on the beach. https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/disease/coronavirus-the-numbers/

The Euro v Pound
Despite all the yelling and threats on top of forecasts that Britain will fall apart without the EU, the markets do not reflect such a doomsday outlook. We do see 2021 and 2023 as important targets for turning points. The critical level will still remain at the 8250 level. If that is breached, then the political crisis in the EU will begin. The departure of Britain will leave a major hole in the budget of the EU which wants to fund its own army. As pressure rises on other members to chip in more money and raise taxes on their citizens even further, the European Project will remain a serious threat to the entire world economy. https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/europes-current-economy/the-euro-v-pound/
Germany shamed as army soldiers are forced to use their cars as tanks due to gear shortage
... According to a report in the German tabloid Bild, only 20 percent of the military’s stock of Puma tanks is in working order. As a result, soldiers have been forced to use cars as ersatz tanks, in a scenario that has parallels with a 2014 NATO exercise in Norway, where German troops had to use painted broomsticks as guns. Germany’s Defence Ministry admitted troops were using “other vehicles to practise mounting and dismounting” because of the lack of Puma tanks and was “not satisfied” with the situation... https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1234812/germany-news-eu-brussels-german-army-nato-puma-tanks-donald-trump-jens-stoltenberg-canada
Why Mitt Romney Must Prevent Joe Biden From Testifyng in the Senate Impeachment Hearings
... It is my belief that America will never be vindicated and validated in the modern era and if people like cartel-darling Nancy Pelosi, Ukrainian arms dealers servant, Adam Schiff, and one of the world’s most notorious criminals, Hillary Clinton, don’t go to prison for their treason and other felonies committed against the people of the United States. However, there is a impediment to these prosecutions. The mafia-like criminality associated with many top politicians, such as Mitt Romney, are so embedded into the American framework, that corruption and criminality are two of the mainstay characteristics of the present political landscape. In other words, being a serial criminal is the expected norm for many politicians. And there is nobody more deserving of going to prison than Mitt Romney... https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-conspiracy-tragedy/why-mitt-romney-must-prevent-joe-biden-testifyng-senate-impeachment-hearings

Is AIDS US $90B Taxpayer Dollars A Global Slush Fund?
Well over a hundred billion dollars has siphoned through the hands of individuals with scandalous histories, with over $90 billion from the U.S. Government (taxpayers) alone, via PEPFAR. The U.S. Government’s PEPFAR is the largest funder of any nation to a single disease in the world, and the largest donor to the Global Fund, to the tune of over $90 billion to date. Despite this, due to the fact that the Global Fund is located in Geneva, Switzerland, it is not subject to U.S. taxation, jurisdiction, or law. George W. Bush’s 2006 executive order afforded the Global Fund additional exemptions, privileges, and immunities. Three U.S. Presidents, over 35 governments, the UNDP, the Global Fund, GAVI, and over two dozen major non-profits along with countless smaller ones, have been cashing in for nearly two decades. Bill and Melinda Gates, Jeffrey Sachs, Kofi Annan, and Amir Attaran are listed as the founders of The Global Fund, but who really strategized and implemented its structure, its funding, and its “immunity” status? In 2015 USAID awarded Chemonics $9.5 billion to fund these supply chain programs. Only 7% of the drug shipments were delivered on time and in full. This is just one example. There are countless scandals throughout this book... https://www.coreysdigs.com/health-science/is-aids-us-90b-taxpayer-dollars-a-global-slush-fund/
Civil Rights Act of 1964 being amended by the "Equality" Act to include "homosexuals; transgenders"
... With 240 co-sponsors, the Democratic-controlled House is set to approve the Equality Act with no problem, but with Republicans enjoying a majority in the Senate, supporters will need to pick up 13 GOP votes to reach the 60-vote threshold to overcome a filibuster (assuming the entire Democratic caucus is united, which is not the case with West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin against the bill). Then there’s President Trump, who came out in opposition to the Equality Act via comments from a senior administration official to the Blade on the basis of unspecified “poison pill” amendments in the bill, and opposition from religious groups like the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Church of Latter-day Saints... https://www.washingtonblade.com/2019/05/15/the-house-vote-on-the-equality-act-is-the-easy-part-whats-next/
