A mysterious new respiratory disease is spreading in China and there is one thing that makes this different to Covid-19 – it’s hitting children.
Chinese reports are describing children’s hospitals in multiple locations being overwhelmed. This is according to a post on ProMED Mail, the online reporting system of the International Society for Infectious Diseases. China Daily, a publication known as a mouthpiece for the Communist Party, are telling families not to panic, but to wear masks and seek treatment promptly.
The last time China had a major outbreak, it shut down the rest of the world, so what do we know?
To answer this, it is important to have the correct information. In 2020, BTJ shared detailed information about the Wuhan virus outbreak and what we shared proved to be correct, even though it was contrary to much of the information in the ‘mainstream media.’
In 2020, we reported:
- Covid-19 started in Wuhan
- Covid-19 was deadlier than the common flu
- We reported that people in China needed help. We immediately sent aid
- We suggested a restriction of travel to and from China in January 2020
- We reported that, from our vantage point, it was most likely from the Wuhan bio-lab, not bat soup
Now here we are again, sharing information as we see it on the ground in China.
It is understandable that people are done with the idea of the pandemic. Many saw how world governments twisted information, stopped free speech, and shut down discussion to use the pandemic as a power-grab.
The world witnessed Anthony Fauci give false testimony before congress, regarding funding for China’s “gain-of-function,” which led to the production of the virus in the Wuhan lab. Much of the deception was done in the name of ‘safety.’
The danger now however is this – the next virus could be more dangerous and more infectious because of the level of skepticism that will be inherent in the next go-around. The level of distrust towards government reaction to a medical crisis is now sky high.
We need to keep a sober mind when looking at the situation in China today.
On Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially requested that China provide detailed information on the new respiratory illness that is spreading like wildfire. The problem is, no one really trusts the Chinese reports or the WHO.
What we do know so far is that the virus does not seem to be deadly. It has been related to ‘walking-pneumonia.’ The disease seems to effect children the most. Some have no cough and show other symptoms outside of high fever and have signs of pulmonary nodules.
Other symptoms include:
The symptoms can last for weeks or months and seem to respond positively to antibiotics.
At least for now, it does not seem that this new wave of mysterious illnesses in northeastern China is as deadly as Covid-19.
