Coronavirus 2019-2020 thread (no unsubstantiated rumours!)

In Germany, more and more Covid 19 protective measures are being relaxed. So there was a mass infection in a reopened restaurant on the first day. And in a reopened church in a church service as well.



By the way: Iran is being hit by a second wave? And in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, more and more people are becoming infected every day. On the Indian subcontinent we will see what has been prevented in China.



We have seen the overture of Covid-19, now the main part begins.

Ontario has recently started to relax some of its restrictions, and right away I see people getting together again and ignoring social distancing.

This does not bode well at all.
 
Georgia released this graph showing infections decreasing since reopening. Then people realized that not only were the counties not in consistent order, the DATES weren't even in chronological order!

China's Wuhan kicks off mass testing campaign for new coronavirus

BEIJING (Reuters) - Authorities in the Chinese city where the novel coronavirus emerged launched an ambitious campaign on Wednesday to test all of its 11 million residents, after a cluster of new cases raised fears of a second wave of infections.
...
Hubei provincial authorities have gradually brought down testing costs and recently capped prices of nucleic acid and IgM/IgG antibody tests at 180 yuan ($25) and 50 yuan ($7), respectively, according to the Changjiang Daily.

I’d like to assume they pooled samples presumed to be negative. But we will have to wait and see.
You mean they put samples of dozens of people together, and if the result is positive, then they go back to test those dozens of people one by one again? That actually makes sense considering only hundres of people at most out of the 11 million are possible asymptomatic carriers. That's the smart way to test 11 million quickly.

Dr Gau Fu, head of China's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said on the sidelines of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference in Beijing on Saturday that China is working on a plan to give some groups a Covid-19 vaccine by the end of the year even if trials are not complete by then. Dr Gao said the National Immunisation Programme was drafting guidelines to determine who would be eligible to receive the vaccine.

Dr Gau is reiteration what he said in April that a Chinese vaccine will be available on emergency basis for the high risk group this Fall and for the public next Spring.

Chinese Genetics Firm’s Testing in Middle East Raises New U.S. Tensions
IVAN LEVINGSTON MAY 20, 2020
While the U.S. struggled to come up with enough tests to manage the world’s largest coronavirus outbreak, a Chinese genetics company took less than a month to build testing centers thousands of miles away in the Middle East.

By moving swiftly, Shenzhen-based BGI Group won hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts with traditional U.S. allies including Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Now the U.S. is warning those countries that they may be giving Beijing access to highly prized personal data that will propel economies of the future.

The push against adoption of Chinese testing technology is part of a wider row between the U.S. and China that’s complicated global efforts to mount a response to the pandemic. President Donald Trump accuses China of hiding information about the origins of the outbreak and has withheld funding from the World Health Organization, saying it’s overly influenced by Beijing. China says the White House is trying to divert attention from its own failings as American deaths soar.
The imperialists know no bounds. Now they come for BGI, a genetics testing firm and huge customer of US based Illumina.
