           "One thing we do know, though, based on the videos, is that the Chinese don't trust their government with their care. That would explain the resistance. As people exposed to illness, they also have an interest in getting well, just as the Chinese state has an interest in ending the impact of the epidemic. These things should coincide but China doesn't have to make them coincide. Maybe it's easier to just get rid of people."

China drags its coronavirus victims kicking and screaming into big state pens

In contrast to the U.S. citizens who may have been exposed to the coronavirus, transported by the U.S. from China to U.S. military bases in California, willingly coming to isolation units and then being given humane care to ensure recovery, (and speaking gratefully for it) China is conducting mass arrests of anyone exposed to the coronavirus and dragging them to camps. According to the Daily Mail:

Officials in protective suits are seen holding onto two people by their arms before a third more resistive man is picked up from the floor and carried away in one shocking clip shared online. The footage, filmed in Wuhan, comes after China's Vice Premier Sun Chunlan called on a 'people's war' against the fast-spreading epidemic. Last week the country's central government ordered the city - which is the epicentre of the virus - to round up all suspected patients as well as their close contacts in mass quarantine camps. 

You can see now why the exposed Americans have been so grateful to have been transported from Wuhan to here. Video shared on social media show white-clad goons in hazmat suits dragging people by force, literally kicking and screaming, and tossing them in big pens together to wait it out. They're treated like livestock, like videos of New Zealand farmers grabbing and tossing sheep for the shearing. It's disturbing, because after all, these are sick people who've done nothing wrong, yet they're being treated like criminals.

Of course, it's true there is a deadly epidemic in China that has killed more than 700 people. It's also true that victims who've been exposed do need to be moved to isolation units. There is a state interest in this, particularly in light of China being internationally isolated as a result of the epidemic. It's also possible that some Chinese citizens, conditioned by socialism and dependent on the state for everything, don't take it upon themselves to spare other people from contamination. There's no civic culture in China.

One thing we do know, though, based on the videos, is that the Chinese don't trust their government with their care. That would explain the resistance. As people exposed to illness, they also have an interest in getting well, just as the Chinese state has an interest in ending the impact of the epidemic. These things should coincide but China doesn't have to make them coincide. Maybe it's easier to just get rid of people.

Who knows if these people will get care or a cure penned up together in camps, nominally to keep them from infecting others? How does throwing them all in together help each sufferer individually get well? Can you get well in a room full of other victims of an epidemic, coughing and transmitting? That may be the basis of the resistance to going to them - that the people aren't convinced they're going to get any sort of cure, and penned up with other sufferers, they might actually get sicker. 

Update: Like this:

Maybe they are reading this forced encampment as the state letting them all die together for the sake of the collective. After all, if anyone gets sick or dies in one of those places due to bad care, how can the state be held accountable? In a communist system 'we never make mistakes.' It's pretty chilling. Totalitarian states have little mercy for the sick and dying.

        "They also claimed, for almost two months until earlier this week, that it originated in a seafood market in Wuhan," Cotton said, referring to a study published by the Lancet. "That is not the case."

'Worse than Chernobyl'

Republican Senator: Coronavirus may have come from Chinese superlaboratory

Chinese officials accused of falsifying number of cases and silencing reports weeks before it was formally acknowledged by government. Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said Chinese officials may have misled the public on the origins of the coronavirus that has killed at least 362 people and infected more than 17,400 others, saying it may have originated in a "superlaboratory", reports Business Insider.

At a Senate Armed Service Committee hearing Thursday, Cotton described coronavirus as the "biggest and most important story in the world", calling it "worse than Chernobyl."

Sen. Cotton suggested Beijing had been less than candid about the number of infections and was "lying about it from the very beginning" to suppress the seriousness of the epidemic. Chinese officials have been accused of falsifying the number of cases and silencing reports weeks before it was formally acknowledged by the government.

"They also claimed, for almost two months until earlier this week, that it originated in a seafood market in Wuhan," Cotton said, referring to a study published by the Lancet. "That is not the case."

"Of the original 40 cases, 14 of them had no contact with the seafood market, including patient zero," Cotton said. "I would note that Wuhan also has China's only bio-safety level four 'superlaboratory' that works with the world's most deadly pathogens to include, yes, coronavirus."

Cotton was referencing the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, China's first Biosafety Level 4 lab that investigates "the most dangerous pathogens," according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Cotton qualified his remarks by saying "we still don't know where" the virus originated.

           This is the danger. Unlike SARS, with coronavirus a person is infectious for two weeks before showing any symptoms. This also adds to the concern that coronavirus was a biological weapon designed to behave this way. One of the main reasons we do not see biological weapons being employed around the world is the fear that the effects will come back to hit them in their own countries.

Coronavirus ‘super-spreader’ speaks out after infecting 11 others with virus

A British man who unknowingly infected nearly a dozen others with the deadly coronavirus has come forward.

Steve Walsh contracted the virus while on a business trip to Singapore in late January. He then went to a ski resort in the French Alps, where he unwittingly spread the virus to at least 11 others. At least five Britons who stayed at the resort – including a 9-year-old boy – were infected, as were five people in France. He was also connected to at least one case in Spain, the BBC reported.

Walsh’s case also prompted French health authorities to test 61 other children and family members at the resort and temporarily close some schools there, but they all tested negative.

In a statement, Walsh thanked Britain's National Health Service (NHS) and noted he has officially recovered from the virus that has killed some 1,016 people and infected more than 40,000 others globally.

“I would like to thank the NHS for their help and care,’’ Walsh said, according to the Associated Press. “Whilst I have fully recovered, my thoughts are with others who have contracted coronavirus.’’

Walsh said as soon as he realized he had been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, he spoke to his doctor and public health authorities.

“I was advised to attend an isolated room at the hospital, despite showing no symptoms, and subsequently self-isolated at home as instructed,” he said. “When the diagnosis was confirmed, I was sent to an isolation unit in the hospital, where I remain, and, as a precaution, my family was also asked to isolate themselves.’’

The news comes after government officials in the U.K. on Monday declared the coronavirus outbreak a "serious and imminent threat to public health." To date, the country has reported eight cases of the novel virus.

“In light of the recent public health emergency from the novel Coronavirus originating from Wuhan, Secretary of State has made regulations to ensure that the public are protected as far as possible from the transmission of the virus,” the government said in a statement, adding Arrowe Park Hospital in Merseyside, and Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes, are “isolation facilities.”

         "Foreign Affairs, which has a very good analysis, notes that Xi is definitely being blamed by the Chinese...two thirds of China's economy is now idled, and oil consumption has tumbled 20%."

https://tmp.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/02/could_the_coronavirus_take_chinas_communist_dictatorship_down.html

Could the coronavirus take China's communist dictatorship down?

Monday, China's leader, Xi Jinping, appeared in public for the first time since a big swath of the country was shut down due to the coronavirus. 

According to the New York Times:

President Xi Jinping of China, the authoritarian leader who had been noticeably absent from public view since the coronavirus outbreak escalated into a crisis, toured several public places in Beijing on Monday afternoon. The appearances seemed aimed at countering criticism that Mr. Xi has been aloof amid rising public discontent with his government’s struggle to contain the crisis.

A day earlier, he held a "rare" meeting of top officials on the crisis.  He also went on television.  According to CNBC:

Chinese President Xi Jinping insisted the country will win the fight against the coronavirus outbreak, saying he will adopt more decisive measures to contain the spread. Speaking on state television Monday, Xi said the country would speed up the development of drugs that have relatively good clinical effects against the deadly pneumonia-like virus.

Xi's comment come shortly after China's National Health Commission said it had confirmed more than 3,000 new cases and almost 100 deaths as of Sunday night. The world's second-largest economy now has a total of 40,141 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the country, with 908 deaths.

In theory, he doesn't need to do anything.  He's got absolute power, and too bad if people don't like it.  His government has been pretty secretive up until now, too.  That Xi is now acting almost like a Western politician, seeking to rally the people as the coronavirus epidemic ravages a lot of the country and makes China itself a disease pariah globally, rather suggests a dictatorship under strain and trying to shore up support.  The BBC called that appearance "rare."  Foreign Affairs calls it "a stress test."

Or more likely, he's running scared.

Foreign Affairs, which has a very good analysis, notes that Xi is definitely being blamed by the Chinese:

Xi's system of governance has protected him from significant political fallout from the epidemic but has also created the very conditions that allowed the virus to spread so fast in the first place. Because the Chinese state apparatus is so centralized, information pools around bottlenecks and often fails to reach those who need it most. The mayor of Wuhan noted in a televised interview in late January that he passed information regarding the coronavirus to the relevant authorities early on, but he was not authorized to release that information to the public. Others were no more able to voice their concerns without fear of reprisal. When 34-year old Dr. Li Wenliang first raised the alarm about the virus in a small online chat group in late December, he was detained and forced to sign a statement disavowing his comments. His death from the virus on February 7 provoked an outpouring of grief and anger, as well as calls for freedom of speech across the Chinese Web, with the news of Li's demise garnering more than 1.5 billion views on the social media platform Weibo. Hoping to allay the public's anger, Beijing responded by promising to send a team from the CCP's anti-corruption body to investigate the local government's treatment of Li. for the crisis:

The root of the problem is that ruling Chinese communists refuse to permit the free flow of information.  In an epidemic, that's deadly; that's precisely what extends the duration of an epidemic, information being the one thing that needs to be shared freely, to prevent panic, to ensure the distribution of medical supplies, to obtain effective cures, to isolate transmission areas.  Foreign Affairs explains the details of this well.  So the more the Chicoms act like Chicoms, the worse the epidemic gets and the worse the effects.  To look at the comments section of the YouTube video about it, it's clear the locals know it. 

It's possible, and maybe likely, the epidemic will die out before anything really dramatic happens.  But there are so many signs of trouble already in China that it raises questions as to whether China's 73-year-old communist regime is going to survive this.

        "The first person in the US to catch the coronavirus was successfully treated in Washington state and returned home late last week."

        That is not saying very much...YET, since the coronavirus, thus far, has only resulted in the deaths of 2 to 4% of those who have contracted the virus. It is hopeful, which is good, but more information and results are needed before we can assume they have a solution.

Three Hopeful Treatments for Coronavirus – One Treatment Using Anti-Viral Drug Remdesivir Shows Results within Hours!

The first person in the US to catch the coronavirus was successfully treated in Washington state and returned home late last week.

Dr. George Diaz, a section chief for infectious diseases at Providence Regional Medical Center Eterett joined Arthel Neville on FOX News on Sunday morning to discuss the successful treatment of the center’s coronavirus patient.  Dr. Diaz told FOX News

“About a week into his course he got worse developed pneumonia. At that point given the reports we had gotten out of China… At that point we elected to give him… the experimental Remdesivir, antiviral medication. And within 24 hours he improved significantly. This was quite encouraging and he improved and thereafter remained without fever and felt much better. Over the next few days he improved to where we thought he could be discharged at home under the care of the local health district.”

Dr. Diaz then added that authorities in China and have recently opened a large clinical trial of Chinese patients looking at those with severe disease as well as those with mild to moderate disease.

On Monday Dr. Siegel confirmed that the Remdesivir treatment shows tremendous promise and the results were noticed within hours. Dr. Siegel also mentioned two other treatments that are showing promise. In Thailand they are showing an HIV drug with a flu drug and that is showing promise. And a third treatment is the use of antibodies to target the virus.

The Washington state treatment with the Anti-viral Drug Remdesivir shows particular promise.

This is very good news for China and the global community.

       "Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, did not deny that the deadly virus came from his country's biological warfare program...A million-and-a-half people flew from China into the United States in that period of time," said Cotton. "That's why we're taking such an aggressive posture for trying to identify people that might have coronavirus and people they have come into contact as well as pushing out testing kits to all 50 states."

Tom Cotton: China Can't Be Trusted to Contain Virus

China's Communist Party has been "too deceitful" for the United States to automatically take its word about the spreading coronavirus, and questions must be asked about the government's "super laboratory" located in Wuhan, ground zero for the virus' beginning, Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday.

"There were reports that it started in the food market, and we now know that we need to get to the bottom of it and we do need to ask questions," the Arkansas Republican told CNBC's Squawk Box."

On Sunday, Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, did not deny that the deadly virus came from his country's biological warfare program, but instead told CBS News' "Face the Nation" that there has been talk that the virus could have come from a U.S. military lab.

His comments came after he was asked about Cotton's suggestion that the virus came from the Chinese program.

"It's very dangerous to stir up suspicion, rumors, and spread them among the people," said Cui. "For one thing, this will create panic. Another thing that it will [do is] fend up racial discrimination, xenophobia, all these things, that will really harm our joint efforts to combat the virus."

Cotton responded Tuesday that what really spreads fear is if China is lying about the origins of the illness and about the number of people who have it. He noted that Cui did not deny the reports.

"In the terms of the claims of racism, the Chinese people are the first and the worst victims of the Chinese Communist Party," said Cotton. "We should all hold them in our prayers and hope that we get a vaccine because they're the people most harmed by the Chinese government's incompetence and duplicity."

There have been comments from researchers commending the Chinese government's cooperation, Cotton was told, but he said they are "grading on a very steep curve" considering China's history with SARS.

"I can promise you that the Chinese government is being far from cooperative with the United States and other world-leading country scientists to try to get to the bottom of this," said Cotton. "If they wanted to get to the bottom of it they would admit western scientists into Wuhan to get to the bottom of it and get a vaccine as quickly as possible for our people and the world."

Meanwhile, Cotton said he thinks the targeted U.S. travel ban was a crucial central step to minimize risks to the United States. But still, as the first cases of the coronavirus appeared in early December, it could have been incubating in mid-November, he added.

"A million-and-a-half people flew from China into the United States in that period of time," said Cotton. "That's why we're taking such an aggressive posture for trying to identify people that might have coronavirus and people they have come into contact as well as pushing out testing kits to all 50 states. It's also essential that we work with our partners around the world and the World Health Organization that err on the side of caution. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

           "China hid the extent of the danger presented by the newly discovered virus for nearly the entire first month of the outbreak in Wuhan, taking 20 days to alert the public of a contagious disease since indicating to the World Health Organization (WHO) that an outbreak had begun. As a result, hospitals did not properly isolate patients exhibiting the flu-like symptoms associated with the novel coronavirus, and local officials allowed high-risk, crowded events in observance of the Lunar New Year to take place, exacerbating the spread of the virus."

Purge: China Fires Top Health Officials in Wuhan, Sends in Beijing’s ‘Anti-Corruption’ Crew

The Communist Party dismissed the director of Hubei province’s health commission and the Party leader in charge of it on Tuesday, the deadliest day so far since the coronavirus outbreak in that region began.

Hubei, whose capital Wuhan is believed to be where the never-before-seen form of coronavirus originated, has documented the highest number of coronavirus cases and deaths, which surpassed 1,000 worldwide on Tuesday. The two firings in the province follow the dismissal of several low-level figures amid local concerns of a complete purge of government agents in the area as punishment for allowing the outbreak to become as severe as it has.

Adding to tensions was the news of the deployment of officials from Beijing’s National Supervisory Commission to Hubei to inspect the performance of the Party’s officers there. The National Supervisory Commission is an “anti-corruption” watchdog agency that dictator Xi Jinping regularly uses to purge people he considers disloyal to him personally from the party. The creation of the committee was branded as part of sweeping reforms to help Xi prevent pro-democracy opinions from “polluting” the “political ecology” of China.

China hid the extent of the danger presented by the newly discovered virus for nearly the entire first month of the outbreak in Wuhan, taking 20 days to alert the public of a contagious disease since indicating to the World Health Organization (WHO) that an outbreak had begun. As a result, hospitals did not properly isolate patients exhibiting the flu-like symptoms associated with the novel coronavirus, and local officials allowed high-risk, crowded events in observance of the Lunar New Year to take place, exacerbating the spread of the virus.

Joining Wang will be a special task force from Beijing’s National Supervisory Commission sent not to supervise overall coronavirus response but to investigate the situation surrounding the death of Dr. Li Wenliang, who died at the age of 34 last week. Li was one of eight people arrested by Wuhan police in January for allegedly spreading “rumors” about the new coronavirus. Wu had warned on a message board for doctors that he believed the cases of respiratory illness he had treated in the city were contagious and a new type of disease. There is no evidence he shared false information.

Police detained Li and forced him to sign a humiliating statement confessing to “severely disturbing the public order.” Less than a month later, Li reportedly contracted the virus himself and suddenly died. Li is one of the only known cases of an otherwise healthy young person dying after being identified as a carrier of the virus.

Li’s death has triggered national outrage at the Chinese government, which Chinese state media outlets are trying to channel by retroactively proclaiming Li a “martyr” and “hero.” The National Supervisory Commission will presumably punish those who silenced him. The South China Morning Post reported that yet another Beijing official close to Xi, Chen Yixin of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, flew into Hubei province and has already begun to berate local officials, demanding they ensure all suspected coronavirus patients get tested.

“Admitting all critically ill patients is the most urgent and important task … It is the bottom line and a strict order. … There is no room for bargaining, it must not be delayed, and there are no excuses,” the Morning Post quoted Chen as saying.

Mounting reports from Wuhan suggest that, far from attempting to diagnose and treat patients as soon as possible, Wuhan medical staff have orders to turn away any patients not “approved” by higher-up hospital officials. By not treating potential coronavirus cases, the Chinese regime can deflate the official number of cases it documents to the World Health Organization. Some reports have collected evidence of large untold numbers of Wuhan residents dying in their homes, then cremated in secret, erased from the official books chronicling the outbreak.

The recently fired Hubei officials join Tang Zhihong, the head of the health commission in the city of Huanggang, a suburb of Wuhan. Tang was fired in late January after allegedly failing to be able to tell state television how many open beds local hospitals had for patients. Tang also appeared not to know if Huanggang had sufficient resources to fight the outbreak, or what resources the city had at all. Joining Tang in being fired are reportedly dozens of local officials implicated in the virus outbreak.

Israel attempts to extricate citizens from Japanese Coronavirus ship

Foreign Ministry asks Japanese authorities to remove 15 Israeli citizens from ship quarantined due to Coronavirus.

On Wednesday, the Foreign Ministry contacted the Japanese authorities to remove Israeli citizens from the quarantined cruise ship due to many passengers being infected with the Coronavirus.

The Foreign Ministry has proposed to the Japanese authorities to explore other isolation options for the 15 Israelis on the ship.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Embassy in Japan provided drugs and kosher food to Israelis who are on the ship, with the assistance of the Japanese authorities.

The Foreign Ministry is also examining how to help citizens return to Israel upon completion of the isolation period, including arranging a letter from the Japanese authorities to allow citizens to fly back to Israel.

Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz said "we will make every effort to bring back the Israelis who are on the Corona ship, while keeping in mind the conditions necessary to protect the public."

There were 3700 passengers and crew on the anchor off the Japanese coast, with 135 of them found to have contracted the Coronavirus.

        "The number of arrivals and departures has decreased between January 24th and February 12th astronomically, from 127,000 and 257,000 to 3,000 and 4,000, respectively. The world class Hong Kong airport, for all intents and purposes, is shut down."

Coronovirus is Killing People and Commerce in China – Concerns Escalate Due to China’s Actions – Hubei and Wuhan Leaders Replaced

The coronavirus is killing off people and commerce in China.  Mixed messaging from China’s leaders leads to more questions and less faith in what you can trust coming from the government.

Today in Hong Kong the schools announced that they will remain closed through mid-March as a result of the coronavirus.  Civil servants in Hong Kong were asked to stay home another week as well.  Most companies in Hong Kong are following the governement’s recommendation to civil servants.

The airlines in Hong Kong are another indication of the impact the virus is having on Hong Kong, let alone China.  The Hong Kong Immigration Department releases daily passenger arrivals and departures at the Hong Kong airport, one of the top ranked airports in the world. The number of arrivals and departures has decreased between January 24th and February 12th astronomically, from 127,000 and 257,000 to 3,000 and 4,000, respectively.  The world class Hong Kong airport, for all intents and purposes, is shut down.  Since Saturday, any mainland arrivals must remain quarantined for 14 days, per new actions taken in Hong Kong.

John Hopkins in the US maintains a site that counts cases by location and the numbers are increasing with over 60,000 now infected with the virus (see picture above). In addition the site shows that nearly 1,400 people have died and around 6,000 are recovered.  This apparently doesn’t mean that nearly one in five infected with the virus dies because reports are that the virus is less fatal than SARS.

What is frustrating is that the Chinese government will not allow the CDC into China to identify the cause of the coronavirus or where it first started. Breitbart reported in late January:

U.S. health officials said that they have been offering for weeks to send experts to help China combat the coronavirus that has claimed at least 106 lives.

At press conference Tuesday, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said the U.S. first offered to send experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on January 6 but China has not yet accepted the offer.

“CDC experts are standing by, ready willing and able to go immediately to China, either on a bilateral basis or under the auspices of the World Health Organization,” Azar said. “This is a major public health issue and we basically just need the best public health people we have in the world working on this.”

U.S. personnel could aid China in answering critical public health questions about how the virus spreads, its incubation period, and if it can be spread by those not yet showing symptoms, CDC Director Robert Redfield said.

Because China won’t let the CDC in to determine the cause of the virus and other information to aid recovery, many suspect wrongdoing.  One tweet identified the burning of organic matters outside Wuhan.  It’s not sure what this organic matter is:

Senator Tom Cotton is also concerned with reports coming out of China, noting that a super lab developed for biological warfare was very near the market where the virus is suspected of originating:
