The official number of those infected by the Wuhan Coronaviris (2019-nCoV) now stands at almost 8,000, according to the latest Johns Hopkins CSSE data (already a figure rivaling the 2003 SARS outbreak), with the total number of deaths now standing at 170 (both figures up 29% on the day before).
Below is a breakdown of what’s currently known about 2019-nCov, driven by data and not opinion.
The details often contradict what’s being reported by the mainstream media:
The speed of infection (R0 rate) for the 1918-20 Spanish Flu (which killed some 75 million people) was estimated to be 1.4 – 2.8 — meaning one individual infected around 2 other people. The current data on the Wuhan Coronavirus strain has an R0 number between 3.6 – 4.0 — a figure supported by a Wuhan nurse who uploaded a video a few days ago in which she quoted 90,000 people had been infected, far more than officially stated, and a number closer to what we’d expect given the official R0 value.
This outbreak is of “grave concern,” the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a recent update.
“This is very contagious,” said Dr. Paul Cottrell, who has published works in genomics, neurobiology, neurosurgery, endocrinology and microbiota. And it has “very high homology (shared ancestry between a pair of structures) to the Bat-SARS virus” — more on that later…
Total Deaths vs Total Recovered
One of the most concerning data-points is the official death toll number vs those recovered.
Out of the almost 8,000 infected, only 133 people have recovered, with 170 officially having passed — which leads us to assume that the majority of those infected are still wrestling with the virus.
How can China be Running out of Medical Supplies?
China running out of supplies is reason-alone to question that official 8,000 infected number.
China –the main global supplier for such things– has ALREADY complained that it’s running out of basic medical supplies such as masks and gowns, etc., and has called on the international community for aid.
The Chinese government is “screaming for help,” said Dr. Cottrell, who fears that it isn’t just a “biological contagion pillar that we need to worry about.” If this outbreak gets worse, countries will begin keeping supplies for their own societies, they will even horde vaccines (the majority of which are not made in the USA) — “there is a social unrest component to this that could lead to very negative externalities,” concluded Cottrell.
The Study Revealing it isn’t just the Elderly and those with Preexisting Conditions who are Suffering the Most
There was one study published by the Lancet a few days ago that revealed this strain of Coronavirus brings on a cytokine storm, a phenomenon where your immune system kicks in so hard that your lungs, and a lot of the rest of your body, is flooded with a surge of activated immune cells.
This is the same reaction that occurred with the Spanish Flu, with most of the fatalities being otherwise healthy people in the age group of 20 – 40. And while this recent Lancet study is severely limited, having only looked at the first 41 cases, it reveals the same thing is happening with 2019-nCoV — which goes against what is being reported by the mainstream.
According to the limited study, a third of those requiring a trip to the ICU were in the 25-49 age group, while the older age groups with severe symptoms was closer to a quarter. And perhaps most concerning, the death rate came out at 15% — putting it in the same range as the Spanish Flu.
In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The exercise looked at the potential impacts of a Coronavirus pandemic, and concluded some 65 million people worldwide could perish in such a scenario.

We, the public, are led to believe the timing of this exercise –coming just one month before the deadly outbreak– was merely coincidental; that its findings were hypothetical and based on “fictional inputs not similar to nCoV-2019.”
Furthermore, and raising my conspiracy-levels to near breaking point, the best platform for keeping up to date with the official nCoV-2019 word is the Johns Hopkins-run: gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com.
Below is the recent Johns Hopkins’ statement explaining their “nCoV and pandemic exercise”:
“Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.”
I’m struggling to buy it…
Deadly Pathogen Lab in Wuhan
Wuhan city recently developed a deadly pathogen research lab to study ebola and SARS-like viruses, with U.S. bio-safety experts warning back in 2017 that a virus could indeed “escape” the facility.
Dr. Cottrell, who has delved into the genome of 2019-nCoV, is highly dubious that the strain could have mutated naturally, due to it containing many of the most virulent sections of other known viruses.
“The probability of this happening in a natural environment is very low … this seems to me that this virus was taken from bat-SARS (KF294457.1) … and it was possible that an individual, or individuals, took big chunks of virulent sections of [other] bat-SARS viruses and put it into this Wuhan strain.
“Normally you have a few nucleotides changing, but these big chunks are a sign that there was some sort of engineering going on with this genome.
“I don’t believe that it was naturally selected, I believe that it was bioengineered.”
Cottrell is keen to point out that it doesn’t take belief in a nefarious deep state plot in order to suspect that 2019-nCoV originated from a lab. The Wuhan research facility was built to do just that–create and test the most virulent types of viruses; and all it would take for a “leak” is an accident, or even a disgruntled employee tossing a Petri dish out of the window (so to speak).
The proximity of Wuhan’s deadly pathogen lab to the official epicenter of the outbreak –the Huanan Seafood Market– also remains highly suspicious to me:
Other pillars of concern include a global restriction of the movement of people, the failure of Just In Time systems, folks running out of food, financial markets imploding, some rushed worldwide vaccination program without a full understanding of the long-term health implications, and also how the rapidly increasing rates of Cosmic Rays could affect further mutations of the strain…
Stay tuned for updates.
And look out for the Oppenheimer Ranch Project‘s latest interview with Dr. Paul Cottrell (expected soon).
