"Updates and Information on the Coronavirus"

Hello John and Doves,

Wanted to pass on some of the latest updated on the 2019-nCoV (2019 novel Corona virus), this is the Corona virus outbreak with epicenter in Wuhan, China. 

This week in review:

On Monday, January 27, the CDC issued a Level 3 Travel Notice for China.  Recommending avoiding all nonessential travel to China.

On Tuesday, January 28, the CDC Press Conference called this a "potentially very serious public health threat" with possible asymptomatic transmission.  Expanding surveillance to 20 U.S. airports.  British Airways halted all flights to Shanghai and Beijing.  United Airlines cancelled 24 flights next week to Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong.

On Thursday, January 30, the World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.  The State Department authorized all non-emergency U.S. diplomatic personnel and families in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shang-hai and Shenyang to depart from China.  U.S. Government issued Level 4 Travel Advisory (DO NOT TRAVEL) for China.

On Friday, January 31, the U.S. Government declared a National Public Health Emergency.  No entry into the U.S. of any foreign national who has traveled in China in the last two weeks.  Any U.S. citizen who has been to Hubei province in China in the past 13 days is subject to 2 weeks of quarantine.  Incoming flights from China are limited to 7 U.S. airports.  U.S. Government may add additional evacuation flights from Wuhan for American citizens around February 3.

Chinese planes are still flying between the U.S. and China.  (WHY?)

Delta and American Airlines have announced halts to travel to China.  (Only after a pilots union filed a lawsuit.)

Breitbart reported this week, per a Chinese epidemiologist, that mammals are a risk for picking up the virus from an infected person and then passing on the virus to another person.  This has not yet been documented.

Hmmm.  Will need to watch for this.

The big question is:  was this virus bioengineered?  That is, did China weaponize a virus in their Wuhan BSL-4 Lab?  And was it accidentally or purposefully released?

This is one recent study done on this virus at the Kusuma School of Biological Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi - they reported on several interesting findings.  January 30, 2020

Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag

They found this virus to be closest in comparison to SARS - but this virus has 4 new insertions in the protein of 2019-nCoV (these insertions mapped to shorts segments of amino acids in HIV-1 Gp120 and Gag).  "To our surprise, these sequence insertions were not only absent in S protein of SARS but were also not observed in any other member of the Coronaviridae familyThis is startling as it is quite unlikely for a virus to have acquired such unique insertions naturally in a short duration of time."

. "First, we identified 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike glycoprotein that are not present in any other coronavirus reported to date.  To our surprise, all of the 4 inserts in the 2019-nCoV mapped to short segments of amino acids in the HIV-1 Gp120 and HIV Gag among all annotated virus proteins in the NCB 1 database.  This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous (i.e. unlikely to be produced by chance.).  Further, 3D modelling suggests that at least 3 of the unique inserts which are non-contiguous in the primary protein sequence of the 2019-nCoV spike glycoproteins converge to constitute the key components of the receptor binding site.  Taken together, our findings suggest unconventional evolution of 2019-nCoV that warrants further investigation.

"Unexpectedly", all of the insertions in the RNA genome of this virus align with Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1 (HIV-1).  These sequences of HIV-1 were derived from Gag protein (this is involved in binding to the host membrane and the formation of virus-like particles).  Gp120 is important for recognizing the host cell and binding to the proper receptor.  This research found these four new insertions in the 28 clinical isolates analyzed and these insertions provide it with "additional survival and infectivity advantage".  They found these insertions are 'astonishingly' similar to HIV (an unrelated virus family).  The gp201 and Gag protein are "critical for the viruses to identify and latch on to their host cells and for viral assembly.  Changing these proteins changes the host specificity of the virus.  Initially this virus was only known to infect animals and not humans, but now it can infect humans."  (end snip from paper)

This coronavirus has changed from an animal infecting virus to a human infecting virus and surprisingly contains sequences of HIV protein important in binding to a human host (HIV is an entirely different virus family)!!  So, the million dollar questions are - is this a mutation in nature or engineered?  If engineered, was it accidentally released?  What are other research labs finding?  Would THEY tell us if it was a bioweapon?

It's being reported from China that nationally there are 11,184 confirmed cases; 15,266 suspected cases; 239 cured cases; 258 deaths.  These are reported numbers, but we have no way of knowing their accuracy.  Mortality is being reported as 11% to 20%.

It is amazing to me that the MSM in the United States is still 99.99% totally focused on the impeachment investigation/voting in the Senate. Very little is being reported about this virus.

When China 'voluntarily' quarantined 60 million people that should have been a big heads up to every government/country in the world!  I believe China knows the origin of this virus and that's why they did this.

And when Russia announced they've closed their border with China and stopped railroad travel to and from China, makes me wonder if Russia hasn't figured this out.  "Russia ramps up controls, shuts China border crossings over virus fears"

Note the 'other than China' cases on the list for January 31, 30!  President Trump is banning foreign nationals who traveled to China in the last 14 days from entering the U.S.  The 195 American citizens evacuated from China are now at a military base in California - quarantined!

Do not be fooled into thinking that the regular flu we get each winter is more of a threat to the U.S. than the coronavirus!  When China quarantines 60 million people...for some 40 deaths - that should get everyone's attention!  When airlines shut down flights - that should get everyone's attention!

Here is one such article misleading the American public:  "Flu bigger threat than the coronavirus in U.S."  January 31, 2020  "The flu is a bigger threat than coronavirus in the United States.  It has killed more than 8,000 Americans since the start of the current flu season and more than 150,000 have been hospitalized."
Flu bigger threat than coronavirus in U.S.

This year "the 2019-2020 flu season is projected to be one of the worst in a decade, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.  At least 140,000 people have been hospitalized with complications from the flu, and that number is predicted to climb as flu activity swirls....the Centers for Disease Control predicts at least 12,000 people will die from the flu in the US every year.  In the 2017-2018 flu season, as many as 61,000 people died, and 45 million were sickened."
With Over 8,000 Deaths This Season, Flu Remains Greater Threat Than Coronavirus in U.S. | KTLA

With these high numbers due to 'flu' why isn't the U.S. quarantined?  Why aren't our cities shut down?  Because.....

The CDC adds flu cases and pneumonia cases together when reporting on 'flu'.  Influenza is a common cause of pneumonia but most cases of flu never lead to pneumonia.  Deaths by actual flu are quite low.  The majority of deaths are due to pneumonia.  There are 'flu' vaccines available and 'pneumonia' vaccines available. They are separate.

"The CDC has been telling the public for nearly a decade that an estimated 36,000 people die from influenza in the U.S. every year.  This number is grossly inaccurate as it includes not just influenza death cases, but also other respiratory, circulatory, cardiac and pulmonary deaths that potentially might have been associated with influenza....There were only between 600 and 750 influenza deaths recorded annually between 1995 and 1997.  The most influenza deaths recorded in a single year since 1979 was about 2,900 deaths and that was in 2009, the H1N1 swine flu pandemic year! "
Influenza Deaths: The Hype Versus the Evidence

This new Coronavirus is very dangerous!  259 deaths to date - and the number of confirmed infected and dead rises daily!  This has not 'peaked out'!  There are also reports coming out of China that a person can be reinfected!

 "Pestilence" is mentioned in the Bible - this is defined as a deadly disaster, usually a disease, that affects an entire community...  Pestilence is contagious, virulent, and devastating...  In the Bible, pestilence is usually a sign of God's judgment on a nation or people group...  Pestilence is promised as part of God's final judgment on the world in Revelation 18:8...  Jesus forewarned of pestilence when he described the end times (Luke 21:110.
What is the meaning of pestilence in the Bible? |

If the Tribulation period is soon to start, I would doubt that satan would wait until Day 1 to get a good pestilence going.  He only has a short time to cram everything in The Revelation into a few years.  This could peak out in a few months or it could continue to spread and mutate . 

Be safe.  Practice good hygiene.  Remember many of our over the counter drugs come from China and 80% of our antibiotics come from China.  As parts of China shut down, this production will drop.  Might want to check your supplies.  Watch what China does.

Pray for the people of Wuhan!  They are in the epicenter of this outbreak!  Pray for the people of China!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
