I alluded to this back in May but happened upon the actual date.

Fact: The Wuhan govt reported to the chicom bigwigs on DEC 8, 2019 that they were have patients with a previously unknown flu / pneumonia like condition.

Fact: the chicoms waited until Dec 30 to report anything to the who.

Fact Jan 14; the who repeated china's lie that there is no evidence of human to human transmission, which they were forced to later reverse.

The fist date is important, because we all know that for this to really hit home to a vulnerable person takes 2 - 3 weeks OR LONGER. Therefore, if whuan reported this on Dec 8, then the badly affected persons had to have contracted it somewhere around OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 15.

During the entire above time the chicoms allowed international travel from wuhan to the rest of the world. They didn't restrict travel from wuhan to the rest of the world until the END OF JAN.

I could have been hit. I was in Aruba that time period in November. Fortunately I was in a mostly US occupied resort area.

I think remembering to blame China is important but ultimately futile. Again how do you extract your pound of flesh. And what is suitable reparations? Until you have some kind of solution that CHina will pay then all this redirection to blame China is wasted energy. In the same way the West would love to punish China for the Uyghurs situation both ultimately have the same end results... there will be hundreds of thousands dead over the world and there will be little hope of extracting any timely restitution from China.

In the end I think every country was delivered a set of cirumstances from CHina and it is up to every country to sort out their own outcomes.

In my neck of the woods, the state I live in with 7.5 mil. has had 50 deaths to date.

The state next door has 6.5 mil. and 180 deaths to date.

One must ask why one state has 3.5x more deaths from a lesser population pool.

Why does one state have military backed curfews and each household only has 1hr per day to buy necessities while the state I live it has nothing of the sort.

The you must ask why other places have death rates at a much higher rate than their population should have.

But some people would say that "it is what it is" and that you cant make that comparison.... "you just cant do that" apparently as if per capita figures arent a thing.

Or you can just blame China and ride the wave until you have 200,000 deaths, 250,000...

Tony, you need to put your location in. It's a forum rule.

I'm from New Zealand.

The above article is flexing on the rest of the world.

I wonder why people are so interested in where a person originates from in this forum, unlike others, as if where a persons' origin validates or invalidates what they are saying.

I agree to an extant that I immediately discount people who would say they are from Russia given their political influences around the world especially in other peoples' election processes but hey, maybe 50% of that country doesnt mind that kind of thing...

So you suggest that people's words should not be judged according to their country of origin, and yet in the very next sentence admit that you do exactly that? Odd.

NZ is quite small and Oz has a lot more room (plus a warmer climate).
Although I think the Covid-figures Tony quoted are way higher than his, what with all the lockdowns there!
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

I'm not an admin, but I suppose part of the rule's reason is to help keep people honest in the marketplace.

@TonyJZX:
You probably mean: born in NZ, but living in NSW, AU.
At least that's where most of your forum-posts originate from...
