Mystery deepens in Italy on how the coronavirus is spreading – alleged patient zero tests ‘negative’

Italy

How is it spreading? Italy raced on Sunday (Feb 23) to contain the biggest outbreak of coronavirus in Europe, sealing off the worst affected towns and banning public gatherings in much of the north as the number of those infected jumped above 100. Authorities in the wealthy regions of Lombardy and Veneto, which are the focal point of the flare-up, ordered schools and universities to close for at least a week, shut museums and cinemas and called off the last two days of the Venice Carnival.

“As of this evening, there will be a ban on the Venice Carnival as well as on all events, including sporting ones, until March 1 inclusive,” the regional governor of Veneto, Luca Zaia, told reporters. He said Sunday’s festivities in the packed lagoon city would continue to prevent any public order problems. The number of certified cases of the illness in Lombardy rose to 90 from 54 a day earlier, while in Veneto some 25 people had come down with the virus, including two people in Venice. Health officials reported isolated cases in the neighboring regions of Piedmont and Emilia Romagna, saying the total number of known infections in Italy had risen to above 130. Two elderly people have died in the past 48 hours from the disease.

The regional governor of Veneto, Luca Zaia, said he had dealt with numerous natural disasters during his long career, including floods and earthquakes. “But this is the absolutely worst problem that Veneto has faced,” he told reporters. Almost a dozen towns in Lombardy and Veneto with a combined population of some 50,000 have effectively been placed under quarantine, with locals urged to stay home and special permission needed to enter or leave the designated areas.

Health authorities are struggling to work out how the outbreak started. The first cases were announced only on Friday and doctors do not know its source. Initial suspicion in Lombardy fell on a businessman recently returned from China, the epicenter of the new virus, but he has tested negative. In Veneto, doctors tested a group of eight Chinese visitors who had been to the town that was home to the first fatality, but again, they all tested negative. “We are (now) even more worried because if we cannot find ‘patient zero’ then it means the virus is even more ubiquitous than we thought,” Zaia said. Prior to Friday, Italy had reported just three cases of the virus – all of them people who had recently arrived from the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the illness emerged last year. The World Health Organization (WHO) said it was concerned by the upsurge in new cases and a lack of clarity over its spread. –Straits Times

Until we can get pathology reports from China on the deceased victims of SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19), we won’t know: a) the actual lethality of the virus. b). what it does to the body (organs and tissue tropism) and thus how to respond to the amplified infection with the most effective treatment. c). What’s the virus primary modes of transmissibility (is it binding to the upper or lower respiratory tracts of victims) d). what type of vaccine needs to be developed. This is the first pathology analysis we’ve gotten on COVID-19 and it has a limited amount of case-data.  -The Extinction Protocol

    Hm, could there be assigned carrier agents with the intent to intentional spread the disease? Area is a major tourist attraction. Possible world economic disaster on the horizon.

    • I think that is a real possibility we have to entertain at this point. Especially, with the videos coming out of China showing intentional spreading. This is indicative though of any outbreak. People knowingly or unwittingly aid in the transmission of disease because they are opportunistic carriers. Nature finds the most efficient way for transmissibility – and that is through invivo host infections or cross-contamination.

    Dr. Boyle: Right. This is the latest study. It just came out this week. Possible origins of 2019 nCoV coronavirus. What is significant here- you can get it at ResearchGate. What is significant here is that it is by two professors at the South China University of Technology – they’re all professors. And their conclusion of this study is that the Wuhan coronavirus leaked out of that BSL-4 facility. Let me repeat – even Chinese scientists are saying now, independently of me, it leaked out. And I believe it was probably an accident that there was a one of these death scientists there at the Wuhan BSL-4 facility trying to DNA genetically engineer the North Carolina technology, the Australian technology, HIV, SARS, gain of function together into the super biological warfare weapon and somehow got infected. There’s been speculation by these authors that animal residue, or they breathed it in or something like that. That person then got infected, but since it’s asymptomatic, they weren’t aware of it. And now, even though they’re saying it’s 14 days, a British healthcare expert estimate it could be 24 days. Whoever this expert was, this death scientist went out around and did his normal life activities for the next 14 to 24 days and it was spread all around Wuhan.

    Alex: Oh, they were playing with fire and they got burned.

    Dr. Boyle: Right. They shot themselves in the foot, Alex. That’s my assessment at this time, yes. They were using it– I think they were developing it for use against either us or the Russians and/or the Russians. They have a huge border up there.

    • And it may be more than one pathogen that leaked out of the BSL-4 lab, which is likely why the mortality at the Epicenter is so high and why Chinese officials are likely burning bodies. This would also explain why the virus appears to be more virulent in some places than others. We can also assume if they have one variety – it’s not a stretch to assume there are likely two. SARS-Cov2 and possibly a SARS-CoV3.

    There are so many infected that China now has nothing to do with the spread, its from person to person from breath, droplet, sweat, urine, faeces and dust from clothes of the infected persons. There is an aura of infection surrounding them. All the dead, MUST be incinerated, NO burials, regardless of religion, it must be burned. So must the boat in Tokyo’s Bay – its in the airconditioning and plumbing, its on the carpets, in the floor boards, on the walls, it must be taken to sea and set fire to, regardless of the cost factor. Our governments and so called Health Experts have well and truly dropped the ball on this one. This is the pestilence spoken of in the bible.
