Chinese diplomats have alleged the Coronavirus orientated in the US. According to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Robert Redfield - director of Disease Control and Prevention - told a congressional hearing that some deaths from Coronavirus have been discovered posthumously in the US. The Chinese Foreign Ministry further allege the Virus was brought to Wuhan during the 2019 Military World Games in Wuhan which the US participated in.
These allegations remain unsubstantiated, however as events unfold, it is clear Western Governments, the US and Britain, are restricting aid to eradicate the pandemic from reaching the health workers, both Nationally and Internationally.
Trump has intervened to prevent Coronavirus supplies from reaching Cuba, Syria, Iran and even Canada. According to US masks manufacture M3, Trump has blocked exports of essential masks to Canada and Latin America. Trump has also refused to lift sanctions imposed on Middle Eastern and Latin American Countries despite EU Countries ignoring the US ban and opening up aid to these war torn areas
The 1000 bed hospital ship, Comfort, docked in Manhattan, described by one hospital executive as a ‘joke', sits idle with 3 patients on board. The ship, according to health experts is completely unsuited to treat patients with Coronavirus as beds are close together and in a bunk arrangement.
This is not a hospital ship, it’s more a morgue. Like the 4000 field hospital in Nightingale, London, only 500 beds are equipped to create patients. Intakes must be from hospitals with patients already on Ventilators. Similar field hospitals are earmarked for 7 other locations in England, Scotland (1) and at the Belfast City hospital. Health personnel will be drawn from NHS staff in other hospitals. The Nightingale hospital needs 16,000 staff.
Mortuaries are being located at the Nightingale hospital, the ice rink in Milton Keynes, a hangar facility at Birmingham Airport, and crematoriums across Britain. The Ballykinlar Army barracks in Co Down NI is also earmarked as a morgue. Transport companies with refrigeration lorries are contracted to hold bodies in NI.
Trump has imposed his ‘ignorant’ (Washington Post) son in law Jared Kushner to lead a White House taskforce to deal with the Virus pandemic. With no medical experience, Kushner has prevented aid going to State provinces, claiming Coronavirus equipment is a Federal matter. Kushner once controlled a family health insurance business, Oscar, now directing consumers to Coronavirus testing locations.
The US has the highest number of Coronavirus cases in the world with over 58,000 deaths. Yet the media, particularly the BBC concentrate only on New York, the epicentre of the Virus, currently exceeding a 1000 deaths/day.
Britain has failed to increase testing significantly, up 3000/ day from 8000. With 219 tests/100k people, compared with 739/100k in S. Korea. Ventilators remain chronically insufficient to deal with the 38,000 Coronavirus cases and over 3600 deaths to date, with the peak expected in the next 2 weeks.
The Johnson Government have rejected Ventilators from MEC, Nantwich, based in Britain, offering 5000 respectively and ignored offers for Ventilators in the Middle East and China. Britain, currently have 10,000 Ventilators, needing at least 30,000. Dyson - who have been given a contract to produce Ventilators - the Government has confirmed 30 are to be produced in next few days. Britain has now confirmed they can acquire only 16,000 Ventilators, claiming now they don’t need the numbers projected. Yet hospitals claim they are chronically short of the equipment. With the Government’s own (leaked) projection of between 500,000 and 800,000 who will die of the Virus, this paltry number of Ventilators are inadequate.
British and NI have refused to carry out proper testing on NHS workers and vertically none on people. This a deliberate policy. Firstly refusing test kits from Randox, based in Crumlin Co Antrim, who previously offered thousands of approved test kits were turned down by the NI Stormont Executive. The British Government only now have placed an order for kits from this company after three months since the Coronavirus outbreak in China.
The British Government refused to take part in the EU Consortium to jointly purchase Coronavirus medical equipment, claiming Britain is no longer an EU partner. The Government claim they want British Companies to supply the equipment.
Only this week, Direct Access, a company based in Cheshire have claimed the Government refused 25,000 lifesaving Ventilators and 50m Cronavirus testing kits. This one company alone could have met the Governments minimum requirements for this essential medical equipment to fight Covid 19. Testing equipment the Government has obtained is now considered to be ‘untrustworthy’, delaying the implementation for extensive testing for health workers and people.
Medical equipment, like PPE are now being contracted to local firms, taking weeks to make up the short supply in Hospitals and care homes, on the eve of the escalation of the virus running rampant across Britain and NI.
Some NHS workers are threatened with dismissal if they speak out on conditions in their workplace. Others speak anonymously now of the difference between Governments optimism in controlling the Virus and the critical conditions in hospitals.
People are allowed to congregate in packed Tube stations in London and New York. Travellers entering Britain are not checked for the Coronavirus and are not quarantined for at least 7 days, unlike Australia who require 14 days quarantine for all travellers into the Country.
The US and British Government refuse to cooperate with European and China Governments to jointly tackle the world pandemic. Second phases of the pandemic is now a real possibility. As Wuhan is now going into a 2nd lockdown due to people entering the Country, shows the pandemic will continue until it is eradicated in all countries.
One US analyst claimed the Corporations are in control of the US pandemic. Corporations with close links with the CIA. Britain and the puppet masters in NI take a similar approach to the US in the pandemic. A long term approach with a bottom up initiative.
China claims the Coronavirus orientated in the US and was deliberately spread. The evidence and approach the US and Britain have taken puts some credibility to China’s claim. Certainly political and economic reasons exist for the genocide of particularly the elderly population. Capitalism, facing recession and a world wide collapse, needed an avenue to divert consciousness away from it’s own failure. At the very least Western Governments approach to this pandemic is gross negligence towards it’s people. It's proving more of genocide.
