Expert Warns Quarantine Process Failed, As China Stands Ready To Crash World Economy

20 02 2020

This is the title of an article that Jared Harris has written for The Western Journal:

China’s rush to reopen factories and markets in the midst of a poorly understood outbreak may backfire, a failure that could result in one of the worst depressions the world has ever seen.

It’s no secret that the COVID-19 virus has dealt a punishing blow to the Chinese economy since its emergence months ago. With over 700 million now under some form of lockdown to control the coronavirus, work has ground to a halt.

Seeing a slowdown of new cases has prompted the ruling communist party to urge work to resume, with the party’s Global Times mouthpiece proclaiming “we must be resolute in resuming economic activity.”

Considering how little is known about the novel coronavirus, pushing workers to return to factories, markets and sales floors en masse does not look like a good decision.

Fortunately for virologists, a closed system with the virus exists on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Unfortunately for the people on the massive boat, their role as a large-scale petri dish shows just how contagious this bug really is.

Despite officials’ best efforts to contain the virus on the ship, the initially small number of infected soon soared to 454.

“The quarantine process failed,” National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci told USA Today.

“I’d like to sugarcoat it and try to be diplomatic about it, but it failed. People were getting infected on that ship.”

It’s unclear why the quarantine failed and transmission occurred, but it may be because the virus is more easily spread through the air than previously thought. Although it’s not thought to be airborne, the CDC still recommends airborne procedures and protective gear.

If COVID-19 is able to spread through the air, the cruise ship’s ventilation system may be a major factor in the baffling infection rates.

Once that possibility is applied to China, where hundreds of millions are holed up in high-rise apartments designed according to loose Chinese standards, the potential of this disaster becomes clear.

Although the Chinese government claims to have a handle on the epidemic, changes in the diagnosis criteria have seen confirmed cases spike by over 14,000 in a single day. Skeptics also remain unconvinced that the country’s communist regime is being honest.

The predicament of the Chinese worker is apparent: The government appears close to giving the all-clear for many. Those voicing skepticism on Chinese social media are swiftly silenced. China’s social credit system likely also puts pressure on citizens to return to work.

While those with symptoms may stay home, the virus can hitch a ride on clothing and other materials. There is even evidence that infected individuals may be able to spread COVID-19 without showing symptoms.

China, the world’s second-largest economy, would be absolutely devastated if this virus made a strong resurgence. The impact on other countries would be downright horrifying.

China’s exports would grind to a halt, depriving the United States of $480 billion worth of goods. Take a look at some of the things around you right now. Many of these items (including the phone or computer you’re reading this on) likely originated in a Chinese factory.

The effect on American retailers would be disastrous. Walmart, for example, imports an estimated 80 percent of its products from Chinese suppliers, according to the Alliance for American Manufacturing.

Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom, three of the largest economies in the world, also rely on Chinese exports worth billions.

Needless to say, all of these exports grinding to a halt virtually overnight would not be pleasant for the world economy. Even the U.S. economy, at an all-time high thanks to President Donald Trump, would not escape without a major beating.

If the quarantines in China are failing just as they are on the Diamond Princess, we could be headed for the biggest economic gut punch since the Great Depression.[2]

Talk about Helter Skelter, if this materializes like the article suggests, the economic effects globally will be nothing short of catastrophic.[3]

Where does the list begin?  With Utah’s carpetbagger from Massachusetts, Mitt Romney; the warmongering shill of a foreign country, John Bolton; the rabid partisan Nancy Pelosi; the always-despicable “Tweedledee and Tweedledum” of American politics, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, who are the heirs of Joe McCarthy; . . . and of course with the un-American racist and anti-Semite Barack Obama, who must spend the rest of his life in prison for treason, at the very least—or no American should believe in the rule of law anymore.[2] 

The impeachment of our great President Donald Trump has ended, for now.  He was acquitted yesterday, but Pelosi made it crystal clear that his impeachment “will last forever,” and that it will go on and on until he leaves the presidency.[3]  And she must be taken at her word.   After all, she tore up the President’s State of the Union speech in front of the nation, right after he delivered it.  A more brazen and classless act—and moment—in American history escapes this writer.

The Congressional Democrats are ruthless trailer trash.  After all, the American criminal Robert Mueller came after Trump with a pack of totally-partisan prosecutors bent on destroying this presidency, and they came up with nothing.  A big fat Z-E-R-O.  If they had anything at all, after spending more than $14 million, surely they would have used it.  Then, along came Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler, who produced nothing too.  Instead of investigating the actual criminality of the Clintons, Obama, Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and so many others, they targeted Trump like Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan had been targeted previously.

Clearly, the Democratic Party and America’s far-Left must be decimated, never to rise again.[4]  And yes, lots of us began as Democrats, but will never vote for one in the future.  Again, the Democrats’ attempted coup has been in the works for at least three years.  It has been and continues to be the goal of the thoroughly-evil Democrats to reverse the election results of 2016.  This is treason, punishable by death.[5]  Nancy Pelosi was correct and refreshingly candid when she admitted that impeachment in one form or another will never stop.  This tells us all that we need to know . . . and where to go from here.
