SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Mainland China reported 433 new cases of coronavirus infections on Feb. 26, the National Health Commission said on Thursday, up from 406 on the previous day.

 

The total number of confirmed cases on mainland China has now reached 78,497, the health authority said.

 

The number of new deaths stood at 29, the lowest daily rate since Jan. 28, and down from 52 on the previous day. The outbreak has now killed a total of 2,744 people.

 

Hubei, the central Chinese province at the epicentre of the outbreak, reported 409 new cases and 26 deaths on Wednesday. Beijing and the provinces of Heilongjiang and Henan were the locations of the other three fatalities.

 

The number of new cases outside Hubei stood at 24, up from 5 on the previous day and reversing five days of declines.

 

With the number of new cases outside China now exceeding those domestically, authorities are turning their attention to potential sources of infection from abroad.

 

The Shanghai government said it is trying to identify anyone who came into contact with a coronavirus patient who arrived in the city from Iran, another coronavirus hotspot.

 

More than 40 countries and regions outside mainland China have reported infections. On Wednesday, cases were detected for the first time in Brazil, Pakistan, Norway, Greece, Romania and Algeria.

The novel coronavirus outbreak in eastern China’s Shandong Province is much worse than what has been officially reported, according to a series of internal government documents obtained by The Epoch Times.

Commies be commies.

And is this the reason the WHO refuses to label the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic?

 

Quote

In June 2017, the World Bank —  the international financial institution that provides loans to poorer countries —  sold around $425 million (€391 million) worth of bonds and derivatives aimed at providing financial support to developing countries facing the risk of a pandemic.

The idea behind the bonds was to place some of the risk for low-income countries of a pandemic onto the financial markets, rather than their own governments' budgets. Investors who bought the bonds would only lose money if certain trigger conditions relating to a pandemic were met.  dw.com/en/investors-flee-from-controversial-pandemic-bonds-with-coronavirus-set-to-trigger-payout/a-52539926

Looks like China at it again.  Currency inversion in Thailand.  USD down 15 satang on Baht late today.  Yuan up on Baht.  Very suspicious...

Very soon the whole country will be in lockdown and to anyone saying this is just flu wake up. The facts are staring you in the face. Healthcare systems and healthcare workers worldwide are going to be overwhelmed.

And nothing generates more cash for them than 'Oh my god' headlines.

Not much different from 'The Sun' in UK. 😆 Although they  just use bigger boobs.
