‘From observations, the virus is capable of transmission even during incubation period,’ Ma Xiaowei, the director of China’s National Health Commission, said.
As a fifth case of the coronavirus was confirmed in the U.S. on Monday, the mayor of Wuhan warned that the world should expect infections to keep climbing.
On Sunday, Zhou Xianwang, the Mayor of Wuhan, said that 5 million people had left the city before travel restrictions were imposed ahead of the Chinese New Year. He said he expected at least 1,000 of some 3,000 suspected cases to be diagnosed with the highly-contagious virus.
Ma Xiaowei, the director of China’s National Health Commission, said that the virus had an incubation period of 10 to 14 days, during which the virus can be contagious but the patients does not display symptoms. That would mark a major difference between the coronavirus and SARS.
There’s speculation that the unusual eating habits of many Chinese may have caused this virus as it’s transmitted via bat.
“From observations, the virus is capable of transmission even during incubation period,” Ma told a news conference, according to a report in the South China Morning Post. “Some patients have normal temperatures and there are many milder cases. There are hidden carriers.”
The pneumonia-causing illness that infects the respiratory tract is now responsible for 80 deaths in China as of Sunday, up from 56 the day before, and more than 2,744 infections, up from 1,975 Saturday, health officials in China said.
The new virus has also infected people in Hong Kong, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, France, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, South Korea, Macao and Nepal. The U.S. State Department ordered the evacuation of all U.S. personnel at the Consulate in Wuhan.
The spread of the virus was likely helped by travel related to China’s Lunar New Year holiday, which began Friday. This week, officials in Wuhan, a city with 11 million residents, closed the area’s outgoing airport and railway stations, and suspended all public transport.
Chinese officials have since expanded that travel ban to 16 surrounding cities with a combined population of more than 50 million people, including Huanggang, a neighboring city to Wuhan with 7.5 million people, effectively putting those cities on lockdown.
The stock market does not like the unknown. It’s down 1.5% on Monday and probably won’t stabilize until the World Health Organization gets a handle on the virus. Travel companies are being hit especially hard.
All of this highlights the importance of knowing who is coming into our country, and the dangers of an open border.
Congressional members on the Democrat side have made their views on a secure border perfectly clear. They believe illegal immigrants will vote for them, so they don’t care who comes into the country as long as they get their vote. Bring crime, drugs, diseases, human trafficking, none of that matters as long as you vote Democrat. This is one of the reasons Jewish journalist, Laura Loomer, has decided to run for Congress. She’s running in President Trump’s home district to oust Pelosi crony, Lois Frankel. Loomer has been deplatformed for being the first to expose Ilhan Omar, a member of The Squad, as being anti-Jewish and pro- Sharia, so I have been promoting Loomer on social media since she can’t promote herself. On 12/28/19, President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine in support of her. Below are a couple of videos from her. If you want a fighter in Congress who is not afraid to stand up to The Swamp, you want to support Loomer, no matter where you live in the U.S. She’s been endorsed by Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon Straka, and many more because of her willingness to fight the swamp. Any donation amount is helpful. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
Laura Loomer is Running for Congress in President Trump’s Home District-Why She’s Worth Supporting No Matter Where You Live in the U.S.-When I say Support, I Mean Give Just $10 Because It Truly All Adds Up https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
-She’s the anti-AOC. Republicans NEED someone who will stand up to The Squad which is driving impeachment, anti Judeo-Christian agenda, and a full blown Communism agenda from the Democrats.
-As Judge Jeanine said when endorsing her, “Laura Loomer stands up for what’s right regardless of the consequences.” This is VERY important because the reason Republicans and the MSM (even Fox) won’t stand up to certain issues is because they’re ‘afraid’ of the backlash. Advertisers dropping them & big money RINO donors dropping them are real consequences of standing up for what’s right. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
-You might say, “We’ve heard that before, and they get into Congress and become part of ‘The Swamp.’ You’re right in general. That does happen. Why do I think Laura Loomer is different? Because she’s already shown by ‘ACTIONS’ not empty words, that her word means something. She’s been deplatformed from social media, Uber, Uber eats, Lyft, Chase temporarily closed down her bank account, PayPal, Venmo, and many, many more sites for confronting crooked politicians and jihadists and calling them out.
-Many people say, “There’s no way AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashaida Tlaib will get re-elected, but I say you’re wrong. They’re in demographically favorable districts to them. You might say, “Omar and Tlaib have broken many laws and will be arrested.” Again how long have we been saying Clinton, Comey, and the Deep State are still free. Who in Congress is screaming from the rooftops to arrest them? I’ll tell you, NO ONE. IF YOU WANT SOMEONE WHO IS LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP & WILL NOT BE COWTOWED BY THE PC POLICE, THEN YOU WANT LAURA LOOMER FOR CONGRESS-HANDS DOWN-NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
–She’s going to FIGHT FOR free speech, for our 2A rights, she’s pro-life, pro-capitalism, pro-military, pro-Israel- pro-Judeo-Christian values, pro secure border (not in any order of importance), and most of all she’s pro- MAGA.
-Another high profile anti-DEEP STATE personality who has endorsed Laura Loomer for Congress. Malkin is sick and tired of the swamp rats and knows Loomer is going to head into Congress with a rocket launcher aimed at The Deep State. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
I admit I am biased towards Laura Loomer because I have gotten to know her pretty well over the last year. BUT, I am more than twice Loomer’s age, so I am in general very cynical about politicians in general. As one donor said, “I have only donated to 2 people running for office, now President Trump and Laura Loomer because they stand up for the people regardless of the consequences.” Since I couldn’t say it any better myself, I thought I would add this. I have never volunteered to promote a politician, but I felt I needed to with Laura Loomer because she is someone who will definitely shake things up in DC. BUT she needs your help, because her opponent is heavily financed as she’s a 4x encumbent with a deep bank account. As Pelosi’s best friend, she has deep Democrat pockets funding her. Anything you can afford, please do. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
