China virus updates コロナウィルスの最新情報

In my last blog on China, I predicted crisis in China.


Well, the Corona virus continues to spread, rapidly.  Deaths have skyrocketed in the last few days.


The problem is, China is a hurry.  They are in a hurry to catch up with and surpass the West, Europe, America and Japan.  They have a massive education of system of students in hard sciences, both in side China and in foreign universities.


They are working hard to build naval superiority by producing aircraft carrier battle groups.


They have built an impressive high speed rail system, but there have been disasters.


A Chinese bullet train crash.


This is unlike Japan, which even in the March 11th, 2011 great earthquake in Tohoku, many bullet trains where many bullet trains were running at full speed, not one crashed.


They are also in a hurry to produce biological weapons, and their top laboratory, level 4, is in Wuhan.


It is now becoming apparent that the present 2019-CoV is artificial, Indian scientists found four AIDS like insertions in the virus.


The odds of this occurring naturally are extremely, infinitesimally rare.


What one must conclude from such an event that this is most likely an accidental release from the lab.  And it does appear that procedures were hurried in anticipation of the lunar New Year holiday.


In fact, Thailand claims to have cured Corona virus patients with HIV drugs.


Certainly, China is not being truthful about the number of cases.  In the fist days of February this chart appeared on Chinese media, It would indicate 154,023 cases and 24, 589 deaths instead of the 14,428 cases and 304 deaths reported.  It was probably an unintentional mistake.


Also, crematoriums are operating 24 hours a day.  The sulfur clouds from these crematoria are visible from satellites in space.


In fact the mortality rate seems much higher than what is admitted.


There is a great danger of revolution and Civil War in China.  The police and military themselves are becoming sick.


As I have predicted, the price of pork has risen dramatically.


There is an old saying, “If Chinese people cannot eat pork, they will revolt”.  In fact, due to the massive quarantine of so many millions of people, getting food to them is becoming very difficult.

古い諺で、「中国人が豚肉を食べられないと、革命をします」。実に、何百万人の隔離で、 食料を配る事がとても難しいです。

An attempt to reopen a factory idled by the quarantine ended in failure as workers tested positive for the virus.


It seems that the Chinese Communist party is losing control of China.


In Japan, political and business leaders cannot understand the reality of the crisis.  Thousands of Chinese tourists enter Japan every day.  They are not really tourists, but refugees from the virus.  They will not go back China and risk death and face quarantine, but hide in the Chinese diaspora of Chinese already living in Japan.


And the American company running the cruise ship “Diamond Princess” is obscene.  With so many cases found on board the ship, they are advertising discount rates for the Golden Week Japanese holiday season from the end of April to the beginning of May.


For businessmen, profit is much more important than people’s lives.


Once the passengers and crew are tested and evacuated, that ship should be sunk in the deep sea.  It will never be disinfected.

I think the tourism business is now truly over.  As for Japanese people, if you work in any way with foreign tourists, or work or live in Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya or Tokyo, you have been exposed to Corona Virus.


And foreigners from Western countries will think the same, it will take at least two or three years for Western tourists to return to Japan.


As for Chinese, the continued existence of a unified Chinese state is in doubt.  That will mean bloody civil war.


Other countries are taking this virus very seriously.  But Japan still lets in Chinese citizens.  The truth is, there are many 2nd and 3rd generation politicians and bureaucrats governing Japan.


Their fathers were powerful people, and they grew up in a very pampered and safe environment.  They never had to face serious challenges, and now have difficulty comprehending a life and death situation.


We need a government of Japan that will protect Japanese people and not worry about profit.

The Wuhan Corona Virus 武漢のコロナウイルスの事件について

In Japan, we are now in the midst of a pandemic.  Living in Japan for 45 years, I am constantly amazed at how people can ignore reality.  When I write, for example, about the civil conflict in America that is leading to a disastrous civil war, people often tell me I am exaggerating way too much.


They think things will always go on like they always have been.


No.  late December, it became apparent that there was a virus in Wuhan China, the Corona virus, or 2019-nCoV.


There are two main stories about how it arose, either from a level 4 medical lab in Wuhan city that studied biological weapons, or from a food market in the city that specialized in exotic animals.


Exotic animals are popular cuisine in China, and deadly viruses have jumped from animals to humans before.


The fact is, this is an extremely dangerous situation.  It spreads quickly and kills people.  As I write this, China has admitted to some 8,000 cases in China.


I think this is an extreme understatement.  The fact that the Chinese government has quarantined the city of Wuhan indicates it is extremely serious.


And the quarantine is spreading to other cities across China as the spread of the virus has become uncontrollable.  If people refuse quarantine, they are being forcibly removed or boarded up inside their houses.


Truly, we should multiply the number of Chinese cases by 10 to get an idea of what is going on.  China is descending into chaos.

The reaction of the Japanese government has been horrible.  Many political and business leaders have been against any kind of preventive measures, saying that the economy depends on Chinese tourists.


These people do not understand reality.  The tourist business for Japan is now over.  For years, if not forever.  Foreign media is reporting that Japan is the most popular destination for Chinese tourists.


So if this Corona virus expands in Japan, and at this writing that seems very possible, we can probably forget this year’s summer Olympics.  Nobody will come, they see coming to Japan as risking their lives.


The government should have begun an immediate quarantine of people from China.  All travelers.  This is not an insult, a human rights for Chinese issue.  This is reality.  Are the economics of Chinese tourism more important than the lives of Japanese citizens?


There is a chart in the link below.  As I write this in the first week in February, Japan has 22 cases.  But it is very close to China.


We have had the virus in Japan since late December at least.  But there are only a hand full of cases.  And this is true of other countries as well.  Why is the disease so much more deadly in China than outside?  This is a mystery.  But mutation is possible at any time.  We should not feel safe.


Chinese Communist party secretary Xi Jinxing is scheduled to make a State Visit to Japan in April.  All ceremonial aspects of this visit, including an audience with the Emperor, should be canceled.   It should be made a working meeting on how to deal with the Corona virus.  Japan should offer the use of any medical research facility in finding a vaccine.  But China should also consider how to modify it’s society, as deadly disease constantly emanate from China across the world.


A vaccine is already in use in Wuhan, but without proper trials.


This indicates the desperateness of Chinese authorities about the situation.


The quarantine of the entire city of Wuhan has closed factories, and has had an impact on goods from cars to cell phones.


Car factories in South Korea are closing for lack of parts from China.


The scientist in the video in the link below, Chris Martenson,  says that the situation is much worse than people believe.

下記のビデオの科学者、クリス・マーテンソンさんの話で、状態は 普通の人が分かっているより大変です。

He says the crematoriums in Wuhan are operating 24 hours a day, which would indicate a death rate 10 times higher than the 491 reported.


All Chinese tourists should be banned until the crisis is over.  No tourists will come from Western countries when knowledge spreads how easily Chinese enter Japan.  Forget the Olympics, very few will come.


Basing so much of the Japanese economy on foreign tourism instead of Japanese tourism was a grave mistake.


Also, now China has an outbreak of bird flu.  And China is facing massive food shortages this year.  Swine fever has greatly reduced Chinese pork supplies, and there are no surpluses anywhere in the world that can make up for it.  My estimate from the chart above is that China will face a 20% supply loss this year.


And the Hong Kong riots are spreading to neighboring territories.  China is facing extreme crisis NOW.


America is facing extreme crisis NOW.  The Democratic party is splintering, the country is on the brink of civil war.


What will the Japanese government do, how will they lead Japan and protect the lives of Japanese people in this turbulent future?
