What is Chinese coronavirus?


In late December 2019, for the first time, cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome of unknown origin were recorded in China in Wuhan. Over the past five and a half weeks, the Chinese coronavirus 2019-nCoV has become a terrible "beast" and has become the protagonist of various world media, which seem to systematically inflate hysteria in the information space about this.


Doctors urge not to create a stir around coronavirus infection, recalling that up to 650 thousand people die from influenza every year around the world. This despite the fact that at present about 400 people have died from the "Chinese virus."

What is the Chinese coronavirus? Where did it come from? What contributed to the spread of this virus? How is he scary and dangerous? Will this epidemic reach Russia? Can we treat him? Are we able to make specialized vaccines for this virus? Can we talk about the explosive spread of the epidemic? Does this virus have a natural character or is it an artificial development of special services? Will this epidemic change stories or will it turn out to be as strong, but a memorable panic, like SARS, swine, bird flu and many other viruses?

The candidate of biological sciences Fyodor Lisitsyn will answer all these questions.

          As a veterinarian, I’ll say:

          1) hysteria and panic around the coronovirus.

          2) the huge economic damage to China is clearly visible.

          Is this revenge for a trade agreement with the United States on Chinese terms?

          There is nothing worse than panic during epidemics and epizootics.

            Here, admire what people write. It's not mine, but dug up so to speak ...... This outbreak of coronavirus infection in China is not worth a broken egg. I am an epidemiologist. Everything is simple there, just one, two, three. But we are seeing a performance in the style of the puff. Inadequate measures, hysteria, running around ahead of the engine. The professional community of my colleagues looks at what is happening with condescending bewilderment. My observations, for example:. I have not seen a single quartz lamp in any report! In case of airborne infections, quartzing of premises, including train cars, aircraft cabins, metro stations and other enclosed spaces - this is the first thing! People in the subway should not be wearing masks, but wearing glasses to protect quartz lamps from ultraviolet radiation. Disinfecting uli is hysterical misery. This list of amateurism goes on and on. The authors of the video are right. Something is wrong here and medicine is powerless here. With respect to the audience, sanitary doctor, bacteriologist, immunologist. epidemiologist, disinfectionist, pensioner Kuzmin A.N. from St. Petersburg.

              Or maybe this is China is naughty. For example, the repurchase of shares of Chinese firms at a lower price. Or pin down suppliers of raw materials. And it can raise prices for all products. Or all together. There are such opportunities for fraud ...... Mmmmm.

      He also thought so at first, all the more so since the citizens and mericosa in their countries arranged the experiments with ARVI in the metro, and from the previous exotic more people of the yellow race died, rather than white. In 2018 there was a publication in the Chinese press about successful research on bats. Not everything is so simple, and will we ever learn the truth? It remains to be hoped that the virus, like all Chinese ...

    The Chinese first approached this type of virus so seriously .. before that, there were a lot of things, but this time China’s news was mobilized .. which means it’s serious. Seriously, including for their economy. Today, China decided to accept assistance in the fight against the virus from the United States .. The United States likes to create a problem and then propose a solution. Naturally not just like that.

    In 1918 there was a Spanish flu. About 50–100 million people, or 2,7–5,3% of the world's population, died. Now Chinese. But science does not stand still. On the other hand, Southeast Asia is overpopulated. Nature deals with regulation.

    When I flew to China for the first time not by Aeroflot, I came across such a situation. After landing, I’m going to the exit, the stewardess approaches me, asks something. I turn and get a spray from the spray gun in my face. Russian, by the way, is a conductor. To my question "... ??? !!!", she answers - such rules. All foreigners ... vaccinated. To avoid. To my first regulatory question, “And Aeroflot?” she said no, only Chinese airlines. After that, international - only Aeroflot. On the domestic lines, by the way, did not sneak.

    In my humble opinion: coronovirus is a scam. Who needs this? Well, for example, pharmaceutical companies. Exchange players.
    It is very strange that during the Ebola epidemic, with a mortality rate of about 50%, there was no such excitement.
    Coronovirus in lethal force, only slightly superior to conventional flu and inferior to the famous "bird" N5H1

      The death toll from the new type of coronavirus 2019-nCoV in China has reached 361 people, according to the website of the National Health Committee of China. The number of infected is estimated at 17 205 people, and the number of cured - at 475

      Healed -475
      Died -365.

        WHO disagrees with you. According to official data from the World Health Organization, mortality from coronovirus is 2,1%. Cured - this is a patient whose clinical manifestations not only subsided, but also the carriage of bacteria stopped.

    The corny Chinese coronavirus 2019-nCoV MAY (I emphasize) be a “nested doll” virus and carry a code, when an infection with carriers with different markers (haplogroup) will manifest itself in varying degrees of danger. If simple, then the Chinese can act as carriers of the pathogen diseases, and when haplogroup R1a1 gets on the carrier, the virus will acquire 100% lethal consequences. I’ll make it clear that the haplogroup R1a1 _ is a Slavic subgroup distributed mainly in the territory of our country. Coronavirus 2019-nCoV for different haplogroups may have a different incubation period, hence the lack of, so far, foci of infection in our territory. Moreover, if the infection period began at the beginning of 2019, then carriers managed to infect all our large cities (where there were massively tourist groups of the Chinese).
    From the above, the coronavirus 2019-nCoV is of artificial origin, this is indirectly proved by the presence of biological centers along the perimeter of our borders, increased mortality in our territory, and very good political and economic consequences for the beneficiary.
    And God forbid, if this is not true, otherwise, "you need to cut the appendix, without waiting for peritonitis - to a vigorous mother ... already today, because tomorrow it will be too late!

    What is Chinese coronavirus?


    -That personally, I’ll just remind the venerable public that everyone condemns the chorus, is indignant about the one-party system anywhere and is ready to deal with it with all available methods, means and all kinds of radical methods ...- Well, if it’s so customary ...- scolding a one-party system ...
    -And the fact that all over the world there is suddenly one people, one nation can multiply to the number of several billion and try to dominate the whole world, for some reason this fact does not bother anyone ...
    -And when our creator, the Lord God, constantly reminds the Chinese themselves ... and other inhabitants of the Earth about this with their deeds ... no one pays attention to it ...
    -That chicken flu "happens" in China, then swine pneumonia, or an epidemic of coronavirus ...- Here's some kind of "zara_ra_za" happening in China ... -And because other peoples themselves are directly eager to communicate with China , then these peoples are constantly "falling" from this ... for one ...
    “For the same reason, let me remind everyone who approves,“ thirsts ”and“ nostalgic ”for the“ Great Chinese Silk Ways ”...- what would happen if these“ Great Chinese Silk Ways ”would have been functioning at all all along .. passing through Central Asia; the territory of Russia in several directions; to Western Europe by water through Italy ... -That would be if these "Chinese Silk Ways" were already in full swing ...- and then another Chinese epidemic (in this case, the coronavirus epidemic) would simply spread instantly over a vast territory. .. -Here try to control it ...- and how would you fight it now ... ???
    -And if still ... and a more serious and terrible epidemic will suddenly come from China ??? -That personally, I have no doubt that this is not the last "new epidemic" ... "from China" ...-most likely there will be more dangerous epidemics from there ... -And along the Chinese Silk Road, this epidemic will be just given the "green light" for distribution around the world ... -Why does this not bother anyone ???
    -The Lord God warns us ...- about the Chinese ... -But the people of the world do not really listen to this ... -For many today, China is something super-super-unique, especially many of them among Russians. ..
    - The whole world is so careless ...- it’s only occupied with politics and economics and doesn’t see beyond its nose ...- and just doesn’t want to see ... what potential threat comes from China ... - it’s even scary ...

      Personally, I can’t imagine at all ...- how today the stunted Russian medicine today would fight the coronavirus epidemic if the "Chinese Silk Ways" were already working hard and passing through the territory of Russia (and not only Russia ... -Tens thousands of Chinese tractors with wagons, heavy container trucks and other freight transport would freely travel across Russia; plus everything along these routes (and this is thousands of kilometers), of course, a huge number of different Chinese campgrounds, hotels, nights would immediately appear hedgehogs, cafes, restaurants, canteens and other eateries ...
      - And so that in the case even now our dead Russian medicine would do even with this coronavirus epidemic ??? -This would become for Russia just a real disaster ...
      -And after all, even a more terrible epidemic can easily come out of China ... -Personally, I have no doubt at all ...
