Image: Coronavirus infections explode across Diamond Princess cruise ship, now reaching 61 confirmed cases out of 273 tested (22% infection rate)

By: Mike Adams / Natural News

While the pandemic denialists are living in a delusional world of make believe, in the real world the virus is exploding across at least two cruise ships which are currently under quarantine, one docked at Japan and the other, with 30 confirmed infections, near Hong Kong. The Diamond Princess cruise ship docked with Japan, which had just 10 confirmed cases of the coronavirus two days ago, is now confirmed to have 61 confirmed infections, according to multiple media sources such as the South China Morning Post.

Even more shockingly, these 61 cases have emerged even though only 273 passengers have been tested. That’s an effective infection rate of 22.3%.

There are more than 3,700 passengers and crew on the ship. If the 22% infection rate holds steady across the entire ship, we would expect over 800 people to be infected across the ship.

The final number may be significantly lower, fortunately, given that those initially selected for testing were people who showed symptoms or who self-reported close contact with another passenger who was known to be infected. However, the 14-day incubation window for the virus, combined with the symptomless status of many who carry the virus, points to the possibility that even more than 800 passengers might ultimately be confirmed as infected.

“Japanese authorities have tested 273 people on board the Diamond Princess, which was quarantined after a former passenger, an 80-year-old man who disembarked in Hong Kong last month, tested positive for the virus,” reports the SCMP. Ship passengers are now essentially imprisoned in their tiny, windowless rooms, entirely dependent on food, water and medical supplies from Japan.

According to the Johns Hopkins CSSE tracking meter, Japan currently has 86 confirmed infections of the coronavirus, making it the highest number of infections outside of China, with Singapore and Thailand following behind. Three island nations — the Federated States of Micronesia, Tuvalu and Niue — have reportedly banned all flights from Japan as of today, according to Yahoo News Taiwan, meaning that Japan is being added to the quarantine lists for blocking international flights.

Tourism-related companies will be hit hard by the pandemic as freaked out customers cancel their travel plans

All this means five very important, sobering things:

1) The infectious of this coronavirus is off the charts. One person on a cruise ship can apparently infect hundreds of others. This does not bode well for any hope of real containment of the virus.

2) If it’s on cruise ships that previously docked at various ports across many countries, then this coronavirus pandemic is already spreading in those other countries, with diagnostic testing lagging behind the spread by a significant number of days (or weeks).

3) The cruise ship industry is about to face financial collapse if passengers begin cancelling their reservations in large numbers. And with the global spread of this pandemic now inevitable, according to three mainstream health authorities, who wants to imagine being imprisoned in a tiny room on a cruise ship, indefinitely quarantined as the world burns? (i.e. NOT the best vacation ever…)

4) If the cruise ship industry begins to suffer financial collapse from all this, the tourism industry won’t be far behind, and that will take down airlines, strongly impacting international travel options. If you thought Boeing took a hit from the 737 Max fiasco, just wait until half the air travelers in the world decide to stop traveling altogether…

5) The last place you want to be during a pandemic is away from home. Hunker down, get your supplies squared away, stay away from airports and cruises, and prepare to ride this out with a healthy dose of vitamin C and some elderberry extract. You most certainly do not want to be stuck in a country where you aren’t a citizen, then have to rely on the CDC to “rescue” you with a chartered medical evacuation flight that ends with a cold probe up your rectum and a 14-day quarantine where you’re fed sterilized government food.

The coronavirus pandemic is exploding. Plan accordingly.

Oh, and by the way, if you have money in semiconductor industry stocks, you might want to cash in before the supply chain chaos becomes obvious to everyone else. Right now, the only reason why semiconductor stocks haven’t cratered is because most people are too stupid to think ahead beyond their next meal (or paycheck). People aren’t doing the math, so they don’t yet grasp the financial bloodbath that’s going to follow the explosion of this pandemic.

Just sayin’.

    • Germany confirms … 13th case
    • 2 suspected … cases found in South Africa
    • Dubai reports… 3rd death…. outside China
    EXPLODES ???? …. FEAR PORN & CLICK BAIT …. at its best


    Lets add some meat to the BONE as to Fear Porn

    Update 7/2 ZeroHedge
    Total cases stand at just 31,439 as death toll climbs to >>>> only 639

    • Germany confirms … 13th case
    • 2 suspected … cases found in South Africa
    • Dubai reports… 3rd death…. outside China

    Engage Brain & Activate Common Sense …. just 639 Deaths

    (as you will see in NY Times already sick & dying on their last breaths anyway)

    And QUOTE >>> 3rd (As in a huge 3) death outside China – 2 “Suspected” cases South Africa, Germany 13th case

    This Virus GLOBAL effect is so small, so tiny, as to be >>>> insignificant and totally irrelevant

    It’s All Hype & Balloney

    How Bad Will the Coronavirus Outbreak Get?
    Here Are 6 Key Factors
    By Knvul Sheikh, Derek Watkins, Jin Wu and Mika GröndahlUpdated >>>> Feb. 1, 2020

    As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread across China, a flurry of early research is drawing
    >>>> a clearer picture of how the pathogen behaves

    1. How contagious is the virus?
    It seems …..moderately infectious,…. similar to SARS. (YAWN)

    2. How deadly is the virus?
    It’s hard to know yet. But the fatality rate is probably …..less than 3 percent, >>> much less than SARS. (YAWN)

    3. How long does it take to show symptoms?
    Possibly between 2 to 14 days, allowing the illness to go undetected.
    4. How much have infected people traveled?
    The virus spread quickly because it started in a transportation hub.
    5. How effective will the response be?
    The W.H.O. has praised China’s efforts, but critics fear lockdown measures may not be enough.
    6. How long will it take to develop a vaccine?
    A vaccine is still a year away — at minimum.

    While the virus is a serious public health concern,…… the risk to most people outside China …..remains very low,(YAWN)
    …….and seasonal flu is a more immediate threat. (DOUBLE YAWN)

    How contagious is the virus?
    It seems ….. moderately infectious, … similar to SARS. (YAWN)

    The scale of an outbreak depends on how quickly and easily a virus is transmitted from person to person. While research has just begun, scientists have estimated that each person with the new coronavirus could infect somewhere between 1.5 and 3.5 people without effective containment measures.

    That would make the virus roughly as contagious as SARS, …….another coronavirus that circulated in China in 2003
    and was contained after
    it sickened >>>> JUST 8,098 people and >>>>> killed (ONLY) 774. (REALLY BIG YAWN)
    If each person infected with the new coronavirus infects two to three others, that ……may be enough to sustain… an outbreak (YAWN)

    How deadly is the virus?

    It’s hard to know yet. But the fatality rate is
    probably less than 3 percent, >>>> much less than SARS.

    “There’s still a lot of uncertainty about what this virus is like and what it is doing,” said Dr. Allison McGeer, an infectious disease specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, who was at the frontlines of the Canadian response to SARS.

    Early indications suggest the fatality rate for this virus is >>>> considerably less >>>>>than another coronavirus, MERS, which kills about…….. one in three people …..who become infected,

    and SARS, which kills …….. about one in 10.
    All of the diseases appear to latch on to proteins on the surface of lung cells,
    - but MERS and SARS ……seem to be more destructive to lung tissue.

    (ABOVE KILLED 1 In 3 & 1 in 10 !!!)


    As of Jan. 31, fewer than >>>>> 1 in 40
    >>>> of the people with confirmed infections had died.

    AND >>> Many of those who died were….. older men….. with underlying health problems.

    - Against Previous Prapaganda Hyped Viruses (seasonal Flu -Sars – Mers – Ebola – H1N1 swine Flu)
