    The virus is a Democrat Hoax it will just go away, like a miracle Maybe we could inject disinfectant into the lungs, like a cleansing I look at the numbers of dead as a badge of honor This is your Dear Leader Donald [103,000 deaths due to inaction for two months] Trump #nevertrump2020 You Trumptards know he can't survive this disaster that he made worse by doing NOTHING for two months.

    Who would have thought that a virus dangerous and lethal enough to make China shut down its economy wouldn't just go away "like a miracle" all on its own in April?

    EXCERPTS from the release follow:
    Saturday, February 29, 2020
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health officials in the state of Washington have reported three hospitalized patients who have tested presumptive-positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, including one patient who died.

    The patient who died, a male in his 50s, was being treated at the same hospital. He was not a resident of the LTCF. CDC erroneously identified the patient as female in a briefing earlier today with the President and Vice President.

    While there is an ongoing investigation, the source of these infections is currently unknown.

    This is the first reported death in the United States from COVID-19, …

    "… we continue to prepare for this virus to become widespread in the United States.”

    Why did the UK manage to contain it? Left wing BBC shut it

    And who has been undermining WHO (no pun)?

    I don't see China using monetary/funding threats on the WHO? I see the US doing that.

    I see the US condescending the UK and warning them not to use say Huawei as well when Cisco has tons of back doors and Angela Merkel knows first hand NSA was tapping her phone.

    Yet the BBC prefers to run scaremongering articles and pieces on Huawei or on China's undue influence with WHO.

    is this just a knee jerk reaction in deference to the religion called democracy at any cost (even if you have to burn the village down to save it ala Hong Kong?)

    Or is the UK that insecure these days that it needs to bark when the US tells it to do so?

    BBC needs to grow a pair and do better due diligence with its work.

    Its fast lost credit as an independent news source.

    BBC needs to do proper due diligence…it has lost credibility for some time now.

    This whole China delay or obfuscation peddled by the White House pack of cowering lying twits and then repeated obediently in echo chamber by Western "Free" press needs addressing. WHAT DELAY?

    1) Dr Zhang (Epidemiologist) was the first person to report to Wuhan CDC of a potential unknown virus on the 26th Dec. Remember patients were only trickling in in small cluster at this point of time.

    2) Wuhan CDC reported upwards to China CDC on the 30th/31st.

    This is the same time some people (AND BBC) prefer to think Dr Li (An Ophthalmologist by training)discussed his supposition to 7 colleagues on we chat with expressed warnings NOT to spread info until facts could be confirmed.

    3) By 2nd January (Day after New Year), China reported upwards to WHO.

    4) 3rd January WHO served warning of new unknown virus to THE WORLD.

    5) First death from new virus was 9th January. This is the first time the virus lethality could be established and again this is ONE death.

    6) By 11th January, China had sequenced the genome and shared it to the world.

    7) Again this was a NOVEL virus and China had to hit the ground running with many unknowns…by 20th January it was confirmed virus was capable of Human to Human transmission.

    8) By 23rd…Wuhan shut down. That's before the Chinese New Year …the biggest ANNUAL human migration event in the world. Now remember those cretins in the US demanding to end the lockdown bc they needed a haircut or something about their rights….

    So by what lens are you judging China and purporting that there was a delay?

    Are you comparing this to US H1 N1 response time or what other Pandemic?

    The Western Media needs to pull its head out of its arse and take a serious look at the timeline.

    United Stated and UK had at very latest by 23rd to get their house sorted for the virus.

    BUT if you were a country who preferred to err on safety, you would have started making preparations on the 3rd Jan.

    Where has the WHO or China in any significant way delayed reporting this virus?

    BBC needs to do way better due diligence instead of repeating other news sites verbatim. Not good enough.

    Lost 6 weeks? You are being generous… Warning was served by China on 2nd January and by the WHO as early as the 3rd….

    Countries like Vietnam, S Korea, Taiwan and New Zealand had zero problem heeding advise, prepping and taking action, minimizing unnecessary casualties to their populations. Those are countries BIG and SMALL, Eastern and Western, Democratic and otherwise.

    The US had 3 months to prepare.

    Lock down will result in a lot more hardship than the natural development of immunity and treatment with the meds we have ! Protect the most vulnerable, treat the infected ! All these other knee jerk , emotional reactions will only result in status quo for the virus , possible return on some level and more loss of life from fear , lack of production – necessary commodities – and the expression of various debilitating neurosis !!

    Terrible that so many are suffering. BBC should look at the U.K. it's handling of the situation was awful also, problems with testing and not recording deaths correctly

    The chart that has the deaths by 1M by state doesn’t change the date for that state. Some states still haven’t hit that benchmark.

    Is this serious? BBC you better concentrate on your own nation who has underperformed almost every nation on earth in their handling of the virus. Fake news.

    Communist China, and the Communist Chinese, do not value a human life. Everyone which lost a family member, everyone who lost his job, must make China pay. Either legally or at least stop buying, dealing with, or befriending Chinese communist, atheistic, godless, and pagan death dealers.

    Doesn't matter we had our lock down, and yet on Memorial Day thousands and thousands flock to the beaches without a mask and no social distancing in site. Wait two weeks and some of these people will "party" out on a ventilator at their local hospital.

    Looks like the BBC is getting funding from the Democratic Party. Perhaps we should focus on shutting down the wet markets in Asia (origin of many deadly viruses) instead of playing the blame game. Also, Boris almost died and Dominic was breaking the travel ban. I guess lots of people made mistakes.
