Discussion:2019 Novel Corona Virus (Covid19) and It's Political Ramifications #3


Recommended Posts

More facts about why WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER. Remember EYES WIDE OPEN.

Amid coronavirus, US is trying to 'squeeze' what it can from the Army's largest European exercise in 25 years

Early on Friday, a C-17 Globemaster transport plane landed in Bulgaria with medical equipment from China, made possible by the NATO-supported Strategic Airlift Capability, under which NATO and partner countries own and operate three C-17s, sharing flying hours and costs.

Through that and other programs, "we're able to lift and shift critical assets and get them to the vital point of need," Wolters said, adding that the US has provided medical equipment and supplies to locations across Europe and this week, in a first for the Pentagon, moved three Americans from Kabul to Germany for coronavirus treatment. 

Wolters also addressed disinformation regarding the coronavirus response in Europe, saying Russians have "attempted to insert themselves" into reporting on the delivery of medical goods and to "downplay the importance of one nation in NATO providing [personal protective equipment] to another."

Wolters said his command's reaction to that disinformation effort was two-pronged, consisting of recognizing and correcting falsehoods and of promoting allies' own activities and investments.

April 17 (Reuters) - The number of deaths linked to the novel coronavirus reached 150,000 on Friday, according to a Reuters tally. 

The first death came in the central Chinese city of Wuhan on Jan. 9. It took 83 days for the first 50,000 deaths to be recorded and just eight more for the toll to climb to 100,000. It took another eight days to go from 100,000 to 150,000.

The death toll is still far short of the so-called Spanish flu, which began in 1918 and is estimated to have killed more than 20 million people by the time it petered out in 1920.

In that case, sounds like you need to be more concerned about what is happening in your country rather than what is happening in the U.S. 

I'm not in Sweden, I'm in the UK, where we are now past the peak of the virus because we have locked down.
