While the pandemic denialists are living in a delusional world of make believe, in the real world the virus is exploding across at least two cruise ships which are currently under quarantine, one docked at Japan and the other, with 30 confirmed infections, near Hong Kong. The Diamond Princess cruise ship docked with Japan, which had just 10 confirmed cases of the coronavirus two days ago, is now confirmed to have 61 confirmed infections, according to multiple media sources such as the South China Morning Post.

Even more shockingly, these 61 cases have emerged even though only 273 passengers have been tested. That’s an effective infection rate of 22.3%.

There are more than 3,700 passengers and crew on the ship. If the 22% infection rate holds steady across the entire ship, we would expect over 800 people to be infected across the ship.

The final number may be significantly lower, fortunately, given that those initially selected for testing were people who showed symptoms or who self-reported close contact with another passenger who was known to be infected. However, the 14-day incubation window for the virus, combined with the symptomless status of many who carry the virus, points to the possibility that even more than 800 passengers might ultimately be confirmed as infected.

“Japanese authorities have tested 273 people on board the Diamond Princess, which was quarantined after a former passenger, an 80-year-old man who disembarked in Hong Kong last month, tested positive for the virus,” reports the SCMP. Ship passengers are now essentially imprisoned in their tiny, windowless rooms, entirely dependent on food, water and medical supplies from Japan.

According to the Johns Hopkins CSSE tracking meter, Japan currently has 86 confirmed infections of the coronavirus, making it the highest number of infections outside of China, with Singapore and Thailand following behind. Three island nations — the Federated States of Micronesia, Tuvalu and Niue — have reportedly banned all flights from Japan as of today, according to Yahoo News Taiwan, meaning that Japan is being added to the quarantine lists for blocking international flights.

    You watch. March / April will = a currency reset and / or the 100 k + swamp indictees being arrested. 🙂 There will be troops “PRESENT” in certain areas where they know freaks might cause a scene. Not martial law.

    You watch … this BS virus was done for a reason. Most likely is the currency reset. (((They))) don’t mind killing a few million people to get the blame off themselves for the $$ crash. A virus did it … not the Luciferian swamp scum. Nnoooo. Huh uh.

    Getting us used to the world of’QUARANTINE’
    Cruise ships, passenger planes, …
    Whether this is the bio engineered virus that becomes the deadly pandemic, that kills millions, or this is just the triggering virus, to set the parameters of ‘QUARANTINE’ make no mistake about it.
    Labs on our planet contain deadly pathogens, that have been engineered, with the potential to kill off most of this planets population.
    The possibility of a future vaccine, that would be required for the global population, mandated by the ‘WHO’,,, whats more scary, the virus that was designed to kill, or a mandated vaccine??? Where the common man,is forced to be injected with,,,, exactly…
