    Why I’m Ramping Up My Coronavirus Preparations

    The more I learn about the virus, the more I don't want to get it
    by Adam Taggart

    In yesterday’s video (Coronavirus Infections Outside Of China Are Growing Exponentially) from Feb 19th, 2020, I put out the science behind why a second exposure may be worse than the first. That’s anything but proven at this point, but the fact that both SARS and MERS are that way, and given the high degree of sequence homology between both of those and COVID-19 we’re just going to have to guess that a second exposure to COVID-19 is worth avoiding.

    So much so that I’ve made the personal decision that I’m not going to get it the first time around. Mostly to avoid being at risk of getting it a second time.

    That’s a calculation based on the currently available data, which, admittedly, involves making a number of assumptions and a couple of educated leaps.

    I’m uncomfortable speculating in public because I’d be crucified by those protecting the official narrative.

    Here’s my primary personal strategy when it comes to the coronavirus (aka covid-19): Don’t get infected!

    Not until a truly effective vaccine is ready and I’ve gotten it. That’s going to be up to 18 months from now, possibly longer.

    This means I have to be ready to self-distance from other people for that entire time. It means I have to be mentally and financially ready to isolate at home for a very long time, if necessary. For much longer than I was actually prepared for when all this erupted last month.

    So, over the past few weeks I have taken the following steps… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Coronavirus Pandemic: The Next Two Weeks Are Critical

    Will infections ex-China remain muted, or explode higher? We'll soon find out.
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, February 18, 2020, 4:45 PM


    While China remains largely in lockdown, covid-19 cases in the rest of the world are at a key juncture.

    To-date, confirmed cases have been lower than feared. Though increasingly, we’re suspecting that’s due to inadequate testing & reporting.

    And the cases we *do* know of (now at ~1,000) appear to be growing at an exponential rate. So the next two weeks will be critical in telling the tale.We’ll soon know whether the spread is indeed slower than initially feared, or we’ll start to see huge increases in the number of infected ex-China.

    Coronavirus: The Calm Before The Storm?

    Is the puzzling silence from officials presaging a turn for the worse?
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, February 17, 2020, 7:16 PM


    Good updates on the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic (aka covid-19) are becoming harder to obtain as governments tighten their grip on news sources.

    The data being shared, particularly by the Chinese are increasingly hard to believe, as they don’t match the massive response the government is undertaking.

    Likewise, outside of China, reported cases remain lower than we would expect given the powerful R0 (i.e., infectiousness) of the virus, as well as its long asymptomatic incubation period.

    Are we being intentionally kept in the dark?

    Why Covid-19 Demands Our Full Attention

    This is an unprecedented moment for our hyper-connected planet
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, February 14, 2020, 2:44 PM


    There’s a reason we’ve re-directed so much of our attention towards reporting on and trying to understand the novel coronavirus (covid-19) that originated in Wuhan, China in December. The heart of our approach is to be “systems thinkers.” “Learn how to see.  Realize that everything connects to everything else” ~ Leonardo Davinci We don’t see…

    Is The Coronavirus (Covid-19) Now Unstoppable?

    New data suggests so
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, February 13, 2020, 11:54 PM


    Oh, boy…the scientific research on covid-19 (the new name of the Wuhan coronavirus) continues to reveal what a huge challenge containing this virus is.

    A new report from Los Alamos Labs calculates its R0 at between 4.7 to 6.6. That is massively contagious!

    A full-blown pandemic looks increasingly unstoppable at this point.
