Trumps about nine minutes long effusion about the world, how it has to be, if he can create it, disgusts every normal person.
It indicates weak leadership and extreme stupidity, which Trump explained. Trump is not able to understand that he cannot intimidate the coronavirus with the usual fake news and tweets. In doing so, the US ruler forgets that his ignorance will cause many people to die unnecessarily. Especially shameful is the fact that the nationalists are being boosted by Trump's stupidity. It is about petty-bourgeois existences and national interests, no longer about the big picture. In Ireland, all schools and universities will be closed. As well as kindergartens. The Prime Minister of Ireland Leo Varadkar came before the public.
All schools, colleges and childcare facilities in Ireland to close from Friday until 29 March— BBC Breaking News (@BBCBreaking) March 12, 2020
Speaking in Washington, Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announces new measure to tackle #CoronavirusPandemichttps://t.co/hgrQMjCeFI pic.twitter.com/kBDwO3SgAZ
Meanwhile, the Australian Grand Prix is probably cancelled because of Corona. McLaren had cancelled this one. In Poland the first woman has died of Corona, the 57-year-old already had severe pneumonia when she was admitted to hospital.
Entry ban for Europeans for the next 30 days
Intellectually, Trump does not seem to be able to explain the word pandemic for himself. His focus is on the economy. Like a grocer, he tries to sell the ailing US economy as the best there ever was. He fantasizes about a foreign virus. In this context Trump once again praises himself. He has understood the facts of the matter, if at all, superficially.
Meanwhile, there is a very accurate map of infections for the Federal Republic of Germany showing how quickly the virus spread in Germany in a very short time. This map is based on information from the Robert Koch Institute.
update 6 March 2020
The epidemic has reached almost the entire world
While South Korea is taking measures to destroy old banknotes, the number of infected people in the Southeast Asian country is rising dramatically. Perhaps banknotes are the carriers of the viruses. Allegedly, according to Chinese newspapers, the virus has mutated in the meantime. They say there are different types.
The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong also writes, citing numerous sources, that there could probably be an emergency test vaccine in April.
Frogs and the search for the origin of the disease
Now even the frog porridge and snake soup are being removed from the menu in China because these dishes are seen as the possible breeding ground of the epidemic. Also, the rat dishes from Guangzhou, South China, which are popular in China, will no longer exist. The authorities have banned such "treats" for Chinese. SARS came from bats with a high scientific probability. The authorities have also banned breeding snakes, crocodiles, giant salamanders and turtles, including Chinese soft-shelled turtles, from being offered for consumption.
The effects of the coronavirus become obvious in Germany after only a few days.
More and more infected people are reporting or seeking help in hospitals. Meanwhile, 157 cases have been confirmed (as of 2 March 2020 5 pm hours).
Fake news about the virus spread panic. This news seems to work itself very quickly through social networks.
Therefore: no rumours, no speculations, only facts.
Some rogue traders are hanging around on Amazon, in the social networks and on eBay.
There is no remedy against Corona, not even a vaccination, not a cure, not water, not a drug. And if there is no cure, no water, no medication, and if there is, it is certainly not available on amazon or via private message on twitter. The internet giant deleted a million offers today that dealt with corona remedies. Others are trying to make their cuts on the masks. It is absurd and reminds in the behaviour of the time of the plague in the Middle Ages.
It is said that there was hoarding and stockpiling. Such panic is not appropriate in a situation like this. The disease is not a death sentence. The food supply in Germany and Western Europe will not collapse.
State structures are designed in such a way that they will not disintegrate if an epidemic occurs. Panic is entirely inappropriate and leads to irrational decisions. The "Rheinische Post" reported that disinfectants were stolen from hospitals. In Münster, there was even a burglary. (!?) One wonders where these people left their wits.
The coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 is scaring individuals, but Western Europe has excellent medical care, and in their interest, states will try to get the disease under control.
Meanwhile England, France and Germany have joined forces to help Iran. Despite all the contradictions between the ruling mullahs and the international community, the focus is always on the individual.
As you can see on the map of John Hopkins University, Corona has hit Iran extremely hard. Here the death rate is also very high. The Tehran Times reported it. North Korea is disinfecting itself. It seems a bit absurd, especially since the country certainly does not have nationwide disinfectants. The Pyongyang Times published pictures of this.
More than 3,000 people have died of the disease worldwide. In China, there are only very few new cases
Update March 1st, 2020
It seems like the disease can appear in different waves.
The virus is not yet decreasing typically. No one has been able to explain how this is possible, according to various international newspapers.
The Chinese media are fighting the rumours that are spreading through social networks in China. For example, the "high death toll in Wuhan is due to hypoxia caused by sputum plugging after using an air respirator. This is a rumour from abroad! "Where from abroad is not clear. According to the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, 86,906 fell ill, 2,981 died, and 41,958 were released as cured. South Korea is currently suffering significantly from the disease, and citizens have been asked not to leave their homes this weekend.
Surprisingly, a 73-year-old woman was released as healed a few days ago to be infected again, reports Yonhap.
The neighbour South Korea, where the epidemic is currently raging, and the neighbour of China, where the outbreak began in Wuhan, North Korea, pretends that the disease only affects capitalism.
North Korea itself is a problem child.
Even the UN sanctions were partially eased to prevent rampant corona.
THE PYONGYANG TIMES from Pyongyang-Sŏsŏng writes as if North Korea did not concern the virus. The shift in the reality of the Kim regime is questionable in this situation. Quote from Korean: "The WHO said the number of newly infected people reported in countries and regions other than China exceeded those in China. COVID 19 cases are increasing rapidly, especially in Italy, Iran and South Korea ... "
This is completely wrong.
Screenshot Rodong Sinmun, 2020
The official mouthpiece of the Juche party of the Rodong Sinmun in Chung-guyŏk seems to be in no way inferior.
But the reality is slowly catching up with the North Koreans. Today it was reported that older citizens and children were given special treatment. There is also "friendly information" from the dictatorship. However, Mr Kim's editors forget to mention that even the embassies are under "house arrest" and many diplomatic notes have been sent back and forth. Even Berlin, otherwise diplomatic, as the word says, has protested to the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. North Korea's regime justified this with "quarantine", now the staff has been temporarily withdrawn.
Note: We would like to thank Rodong Sinmun for the screenshot; unfortunately, it was also not possible to contact us by email to receive the photos for an article. The images could not be found in the agencies' databases.
The Robert Koch Institute in Hamburg provided information on the coronavirus. A vaccine will not be released this year.
Three more people have died of the disease in Iran. Saudi Arabia has closed access for pilgrims to the holy places. Japan has partially closed the schools until April.
More and more often, tips are given on how to prevent the infection. Wash your hands, cough into the crook of your arm. It would help if you did not touch your face so often.
There are more than 82,000 cases of infection and about 2,900 deaths, and nobody knows what the transmission path of the virus is. It is believed to develop in the lungs and therefore, infection occurs from the lung to lung.
There is no reason to panic
All those who are afraid of the virus should know that it is not fatal in 95% of cases.
There are clusters that probably lead to the fact that the infections are also evident in the Federal Republic. The Robert Koch Institute in Hamburg estimates the risk of disease to be low to moderate. Nobody has to hoard or stockpile food, should there be a mass epidemic and people are placed under "house arrest", which is unlikely to be the case, the state will also help.
No one is in a vacuum. Fear is entirely inappropriate.
If you think you might be infected with Corona in Germany, please call the nationwide number of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians: 116 117. Do not go to the surgery, because you might infect others.
A coronavirus suspicion has been reported in Idar-Oberstein for over an hour. Nothing has been confirmed, and there are only pictures showing police and paramedics on site—more on this in a moment. A 41-year-old soldier proved to be infected by the disease.
He was taken to hospital.
The virus is spreading
The coronavirus has now leapt Europe. Cases have been reported from Italy and Croatia, as well as from Switzerland. On Tenerife, about 1000 holidaymakers are in quarantine in the Hotel H10 Costa Adeje Palace, which is secured by the Guardia Civil. An Italian doctor was tested positive. The hotel management in Barcelona did not want to give any information about the news from El Pais and Diario de Avisos. The only information known is that guests are not allowed to leave the premises before they have been tested.
According to the Neue Südtiroler Tageszeitung, there are now also three infected people in Trentino. A total of 150 people are infected with Corona in Italy. Three have died. Whole supermarkets in the area around Milan have been emptied. Hamster purchases are taking place, which is now to be contained.

There is no reason to panic
In China, with 78,804 confirmed infections and 2,463 deaths, China's ruler Xi Jinping speaks of the biggest crisis in the health care system since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, not forgetting to mention that 23,092 patients were discharged as cured.
As the South China Morning Post, published in Hong Kong, reported, the fish market in Wuhan was not the source of the infection. There were 93 samples taken, and these indicated that the virus came from somewhere else. This issue was independently determined by scientific teams from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden in China. The virus probably broke out in late November 2019.
The coronavirus has now reached South Korea.
In the city of Daegu, according to the Korean daily newspaper The Korea Times, the virus COVID-19 has been detected in dozens of patients. Therefore, the South Korean government has issued the highest level of alert. Within a short time, 123 new cases and five deaths were reported. A total of 556 people have contracted the virus.
Most patients are treated in hospitals in North Gyeongsang Province. In the morning, President Moon Jae-in enquired about the situation in the South Asian country. Fears are growing that the pandemic could spread to North Korea. The regime there would not be able to treat such a disease.
Israel denied 130 pilgrims of the Catholic Shincheonji Church entry to Israel, which Seoul protested against. A jet with the faithful was refused in Tel Aviv, and the pilgrims were not allowed into the country.
A pandemic can no longer be stopped.
In Italy, the virus has prompted the authorities to set up practical barriers in the north of the country. In Lombardy, schools, museums and cinemas have been closed. The cause of the virus outbreak in Lombardy is not yet clear.
Meanwhile, according to the Corriere della Sera, the disease seems to be spreading to other administrative districts in the north of Italy. A case has also been reported in Milan. Measures are being taken by Rome to contain the epidemic. It is not clear whether the virus can be transmitted by air.
So far, it's only been intermittent. Concerned citizens in Italy asked if the virus could be transmitted by a pet. More than washing their hands frequently and consuming food hygienically, the regional government has no idea of advising.
An extremely high number of unreported cases
The head of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO, compared the virus and the epidemic to a terrorist attack. However, this would not claim as many lives, and agencies are quoted as saying. According to media reports, President Xi Jinping visited Ditan Hospital on Monday. He was almost invisible since the beginning of the epidemic. Things are slowly becoming uncomfortable in China for the ruling dictatorship of the proletariat. The population is demanding freedom of speech. Xi Jiping recalled that Mao swam through the river when he was in Hubei.
His appearance was more reminiscent of a degenerate class of profiteers of the Chinese system from communist capitalism.
Xi Jiping should take care of the barbaric superstition in his country. Shabby men in uniforms slaughter dogs because they are blamed for the epidemic. It is reminiscent of the Middle Ages. You can watch the video on sina weibo in the original.
"It will be a crisis of Chernobyl proportions, especially because we will have to fight with the virus in the coming years," Yang said. "Especially those who have suffered losses will ask questions about how such a crisis came about." Dali Yang, a political scientist at the University of Chicago, said in an interview with the South China Morning Post
The virus spreads faster than SARS, and an extremely high number of unreported cases is expected.
After the Chinese authorities replaced numerous officials and health care managers in Hubei, infection figures have become apparent, which also pose a mystery to epidemiology experts. Why the survey and diagnostic criteria have been changed at this particular time cannot be explained by the numerous contributions from the Chinese agencies. On the microblogging service sina weibo, many US citizens express their absolute displeasure at the tactics used by officials to date to conceal the exact infection rates. The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong reports that there are now over 60,000 cases and more than 1,350 people have died from the novel virus. Meanwhile, the ship the Westerham could drop anchor in Cambodia. There are 57 Germans on the cruise ship.
Still, no country insight is the watchword of the day.
The death rate and the number of infections continue to rise. New infections seem to have slowed down, but the epidemic has not yet reached its peak. Forty-five thousand one hundred seventy-five were infected worldwide. One thousand one hundred fifteen have died. And 4,774 were released from hospital cured.
Meanwhile, Wuhan, the epicentre of the epidemic, is being comprehensively disinfected.
The deceit of the newly named Coranovirus lies in its transmission path. A pandemic can no longer be ruled out. At an extraordinary meeting in Geneva, the WHO gave the lung disease a name: COVID-19.
According to virologists worldwide, some patients have a very mild course of the disease. Still, even these symptoms, which are not associated with the coronavirus, can lead to infection in third parties, who can then die of the disease.
How is the virus transmitted? Probably by droplet infection, as Xin hua wrote a few days ago. The death rate and a number of people infected are appalling, but new infections are decreasing, according to the South China Morning Post. However, one can only hope that the epidemic has reached its peak. Bejing-News also writes about a general downward trend in new infections.
COVID-19 dance in the epidemic ward
No thriller writer could have come up with a better drama than the one currently taking place off Japan.
The Diamond Princess, a cruise ship of the shipping company Princess Cruises with homeport Hamilton/Bermuda offers space for 3700 passengers on 13 decks.
Now the cruise giant is in considerable trouble. Since the beginning of February, the ship has been anchoring in Yokohama Bay off the Japanese port of the same name.
There are 61 people infected with the coronavirus on board. Among them are citizens of various nations, such as Chinese from the city of Wuhan, 21 Japanese, eight Americans, five Australians, five Canadians and one infected person each from Argentina and Great Britain. Over 200 people have been identified in direct contact with the infected, according to the Japanese news agency Kyodo News. The affected passengers are said to be in a satisfactory state of health.
They were tested positive for the pathogen at medical stations in Saitama, Chiba and Kanagawa, Shizuoka Prefecture. The ship has now been placed under complete quarantine. Another boat, the "Westerham" from Hong Kong, was banned from entering port after a passenger was suspected of being infected. Non-citizens of Japan will be prohibited from entering Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced.
"We will make it a top priority to check the health of passengers and crew members on the cruise ship and take thorough measures to prevent infection," said Health Minister Katsunobu Kato, according to the Japanese news agency.
Unfortunately, no improvement is in sight.
The Chinese government has incurred the wrath of many Chinese with the death of the well-known doctor, Dr Li Wenliang. Li was the first medical doctor to warn as early as December of a SARS-like disease that had broken out in the vicinity of a market that traded illegal meat. He was summoned by the Chinese police for spreading rumours. His findings could have prevented many effects of the epidemic.
Now an unknown pangolin (Pholidota) pangolin is said to be responsible for the outbreak, according to the Chinese news agency xin hua.
Pangolins are pangolin or fir cone animals of a mammalian family. They are traded on illegal markets because of their scales and meat. 2019-nCoV was detected in the animals. In China, the meat is considered a special delicacy because it is probably classified as potency-promoting in traditional medicine.

Unfortunately, there is still nothing good to report.
The figures are frightening, which the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong has now published. It seems that the international community, despite all agreement, is not getting the disease under control. There are now nearly 30,000 infected and 565 dead.
Taiwan has suspended visas for Hong Kong and Macao citizens indefinitely. As well as banning cruise ships from docking in the waters of the former Formosa.
It is also becoming increasingly difficult to deliver food to the central isolation zone around Wuhan, the agencies report.
Despite enormous suspected cases of new infections and rising death rates, individual fates also touch the Chinese public. Such as a newborn baby, which is 30 hours old and was infected via the mother, as the microblogging service, sina weibo, reported. It was discovered that the coronavirus is sensitive to heat and UV light.
In addition, an experimental drug is already being used in China to cure the sick.
Meanwhile, the population is being educated more and more about what preventive hygiene measures can be taken.
The hatred of the Chinese is also a cause for concern.
WHO complains about disinformation and fake news about coronavirus
The World Health Organization WHO complains, very politically this time, that the pandemic is distracting from the real problems in the world, says a statement by Medico.
"It seems that everyone is rushing into this new infectious disease, already announced as a "pandemic", not to mention the climate crisis, the Libyan crisis and the Brexit crisis. And all the players have their own interests at stake. …“
The WHO also complains of an infodemia that would obscure the apparent facts. Trump for no stupidity and for no completely twisted news too bad, the CIA has intervened. As if it could help against viruses. With the travel ban, Trump has only fuelled the rumours.
JUST RECEIVED A BRIEFING ON THE CORONAVIRUS IN CHINA FROM ALL OF OUR GREAT AGENCIES, WHO ARE ALSO WORKING CLOSELY WITH CHINA. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE ONGOING DEVELOPMENTS. WE HAVE THE BEST EXPERTS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AND THEY ARE ON TOP OF IT 24/7! PIC.TWITTER.COM/RRTF1STK78

In reality, infection rates and mortality rates are rising dramatically in China, according to the South China Morning Post.
In Thailand, on the other hand, a "cocktail" of anti-HIV drugs and anti-influenza drugs has succeeded in stopping the course of the disease and bringing patients to a satisfactory state of health. (Currently, the news are only available in Thai and would have to be transferred into the respective national language with the automatic translator).
Two of the Germans flown out of Wuhan by the German Air Force are under quarantine. They are infected with the coronavirus.
On La Gomera, several travellers who had contact with previously identified infected persons have been quarantined.
According to the latest information from the Chinese authorities, 14,562 people are said to be infected. The Vulcan Mountain Hospital in Wuhan can accommodate several thousand patients within days on 33,000 square meters, as the news service of sina weibo announced a few minutes ago that operations are expected to start on February 5. Doctors from the Chinese People's Liberation Army are anticipated in Wuhan.
The population is accepting the measures of the Chinese government with equanimity and questioning, frustration and hopelessness.
Supplies were already provided yesterday, tons of relief supplies were lifted to Wuhan.
The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong reports the first death in the Philippines since the travel ban. A heat scanner is being used at the airport in Manila.
According to agency reports, the avian flu virus has also broken out near the affected province of Hubei.
A jet of the German Air Force has just landed in Frankfurt am Main with 126 people from Wuhan on board. The people who flew out, including Chinese nationals and one US American, are to be taken to an air force base in Germersheim in the Palatinate in quarantine.

Breaking News: The coronavirus infects a child in Germany for the first time, it is the agencies did not report the child of an infected person from Bavaria How the child is doing.
As numerous agencies report, the coronavirus is spreading. The number of new infections is increasing rapidly. The number of deaths is also growing hourly. So far, 213 people are reported to have fallen victim to the disease. Almost 10,000 people are infected.
Many states have begun to fly their compatriots out of Wuhan, including the Federal Republic, according to Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, a jet of the Federal Air Force is on its way to Wuhan to evacuate German citizens.
Meanwhile, more and more people are leaving Hubei province for the neighbouring region of Jiangxi via the Yangtze Bridge.
As Nine News Australia and ABC News (Australia) independently report, Australian scientists have for the first time been able to cultivate the coronavirus artificially in the laboratory. The scientists are now on the way to creating a vaccine within a short time. This news should ease the situation considerably. Lufthansa, like British Airways, had previously cancelled all flights to China.
update January 29, 2020
Meanwhile, the evilest conspiracy theories about the virus are circulating, as is also written in countless other media.
There is no reason to panic. Also, there is no need for notes in the Chinese language to cause fear, no matter who hangs them up.
Plague is not a means to serve the wildest conspiracy theories. The coronavirus certainly does not come from a laboratory but has spread to humans through an animal.
Nor are there any "100 years of viruses" that, like the Spanish flu in 1920, are now breaking out. These are profitable conspiracy theories that are being peddled.
When you have a disease, you have to trust science, not discriminate against the Chinese because the plague broke out in China.
The hashtag #JeNeSuisPasUnVirus is inhuman and does not reflect the real situation. It is only looking for a scapegoat, which is seen in the Chinese. Wang Qimin's movie is depressing and shows how helpless people are, but the film also shows that those responsible for Wuhan make every effort to contain the epidemic.
And for that, the responsible people deserve the respect of the whole world community.
In Munich, respiratory masks are in short supply after the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Germany, according to the Tagesspiegel.
According to the doctors, the man should be fine.
In Wuhan, the feverish cause continues after the source of infection. Now, bats are being searched for the virus in snakes that were traded at the market. In addition to countless rumours about the cause on China's networks, deputy director of the Chinese Center for Health, Feng Zijian, noted that the virus infects all age groups. In Quanzhou, a woman spread rumours about the epidemic on social networks and was promptly sentenced to prison!
Also, in the last few hours, there has been a very intensive search of the fish market in Wuhan, outraged citizens want to visit the owner of the fish market, as is written on sina weibo.
Within 6-7 days the virus would virtually double and infect at least another two to three people. It is also interesting to note that the Chinese government is following up leads that indicate that the virus may have broken out in different places.
While the coronavirus is spreading, 41 people have died of the lung virus, the search for the cause continues in China.
The focus here is on the markets with snakes, badgers, foxes, dogs, cats, rats and bats that are offered for consumption. Here a film of preparation on an Indonesian market.
Bats have long been suspected of transmitting haemorrhagic fever in the Congo. At the markets the meat is cheap, and if it is not cooked through, it can lead to severe diseases. In China, social networks are discussing whether bats are potential vectors for lung disease.
There is no scientific proof yet.
A second hospital is being built in Wuhan, which will accept patients, as weibo reports.
update The virus (2019-nCoV) spreads, and China shows how to quarantine 43 million people
As (Xinhua) just reported in the "People Daily" is shown how rigid China can carry out a quarantine. Dozens of hospital employees walk down the corridors of a hospital with protective clothing, like ghosts. Yichang (4.1 million inhabitants) and Tianmen (1.9 million), as well as Wuhan (12.0 million inhabitants) in Hubei province and Hebei province, are sealed off. All public traffic has been stopped there.
Meanwhile, 24 people have died from a dangerous epidemic, which also broke out in Hong Kong and Macau. The Special Administrative Regions, together with Taiwan, confirmed five new cases, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua.
On Weibo, people's fear is evident
China's social network, weibo, reflects the concern of the people on the eve of the Chinese New Year. Don't panic!
There were new cases in Fuzhou city, two instances in Ganzhou city, 2 cases in Shangrao city, 1 case in Nanchang city, 1 case in Jiujiang city, 1 case in Jingdezhen city and 1 case in Yichun city. As of today, one case in Jiangxi province of the novel coronavirus is also reported. It is a terrible disease, and it is unanimously admitted.
"Everyone wears a mask, washes their hands often, drinks lots of water, eats more fruit, improves immunity, protects their bodies and takes care of themselves and their families," a man from Wuhan writes in weibo. Everyone advises against going to the markets where there is a game, live birds or flowers. Playgrounds for children have also been closed, as well as entertainment venues noted another microblogger. Other bloggers would like to see proper medical care, especially protective gear and masks.
There are increasing signs that a pandemic is imminent due to an outbreak of coronavirus, causing a severe lung infection.
The mysterious disease has broken out in China. Hundreds of Chinese are said to have contracted the disease, but the virus has continued its journey from Asia, where it caused infections in Thailand, Japan, South Korea. So far nine people have died from the disease, which is believed to be caused by a mutated SARS virus. The coronavirus is highly infectious and has now reached the USA. A man contracted the virus here, returning home to Seattle from China.
Due to the upcoming Chinese New Year, many more infected people are feared. As is well known, the New Year festival triggers whole migrations of people in China.
The virus had jumped from the animal to humans in 2016 in Wuhan/China. There, people and animals live together due to poverty in rural areas.
The WHO has called an emergency meeting today to discuss how to proceed.
According to the German Federal Ministry of Health, Germany would face a "shallow risk" after having asked the Robert Koch Institute to assess the situation.
