Coronavirus is AIRBORNE! You Are Not Being Told the Full Truth
“COVID19 IS AIRBORNE! President Trump MUST immediately shut down all commercial airline traffic. Every airlines flight puts all passengers at significant risk of being infected precisely because all it takes is one infected person onboard a flight to infect others, just as the infected man on the bus in China infected others. Likewise, all public trains, buses, and subway systems should be shut down for the same reasons.”
The bureaucrats are failing us, yet again.
A U.S. level 4 biological lab has now confirmed that the Coronavirus (COVID19) is an airborne (aerosol) virus. This was also confirmed by a Chinese medical study that researched an actual case of airborne spread on a public bus (see below for details).
And yet, the CDC, HHS, and White House Coronavirus Task Force have all failed to say ANYTHING about this!
This means that COVID19 is so small that it can be expelled in an infected person’s breath and linger in the air for at least a half an hour, as both the U.S. and Chinese studies confirmed, and while suspended in the air, it can infect other people who then breath that air in, inside an enclosed space (like a bus, airplane, train, subway, office building, school, church, car, personal home, etc), and it can therefore move from room to room in air-conditioning units (such as inside a nursing home, office building, school, cruise ship, hotel, etc), and likewise infect anyone who breaths it in. A flu is NOT airborne, and can transmit only in droplets in sneezes, coughs, or left on surfaces. This is one of the reasons why the Coronavirus vastly more contagious than a flu, It is airborne, like other highly contagious viruses such as measles, tuberculosis, and smallpox.
“A new study suggests that the novel coronavirus COVID-19 can remain in the air for up to three hours, and live on surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for up to three days.
The research, published in the medRxiv depository, also notes that the virus can remain on copper surfaces for four hours and carboard for up to 24 hours. The research found it could stay on stainless steel and plastic for anywhere between two and three days.
“Our results indicate that aerosol and fomite transmission of HCoV-19 is plausible, as the virus can remain viable in aerosols for multiple hours and on surfaces up to days,” the researchers wrote in the study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed.”
The Chinese medical study analyzed the case of a Coronavirus carrier who infected other passengers in a bus who were up to 4.5 meters away from him, and the virus lingered in the air inside the bus even after the infected man got off the bus. A passenger who got on the bus a half hour later was infected – proving that the virus can linger in the air inside an enclosed space for at least a half hour. As the South China Morning Post reported:
“Hu Shixiong, the lead author of the study who works for the Hunan Provincial Centre for Diseases Control and Prevention, said the security camera footage showed patient “A” did not interact with others throughout the four-hour ride.
But by the time the bus stopped at the next city, the virus had already jumped from the carrier to seven other passengers.
These included not only people sitting relatively close to “patient zero”, but also a couple of victims six rows from him – roughly 4.5 metres away.
They all later tested positive, including one passenger who displayed no symptoms of the disease.
After these passengers left, another group got on the bus about 30 minutes later. One passenger sitting in the front row on the other side of the aisle also became infected.
Hu said the patient, who was not wearing a mask, was likely to have inhaled aerosols, or tiny particles, breathed out by the infected passengers from the previous group.
Aerosols are light-weighted particles that are formed from tiny droplets of bodily fluids.
“The possible reason is that in a completely enclosed space, the airflow is mainly driven by the hot air generated by the air conditioning. The rise of the hot air can transport the virus-laden droplets to a greater distance,” said the paper.
After getting off the shuttle bus, the initial carrier got on a minibus and travelled for another hour. The virus jumped to two other passengers, one of whom was also sitting 4.5 metres away from patient “A”.
By the time the study was finished in mid February, patient “A” had infected at least 13 people.”
And yet, U.S. Government officials have completely failed to even mention this reality, or to advise that public mass transportation, such as airlines, trains, subways, or buses be shut down.
Frankly, we have known that COVID19 is airborne for over two weeks, as we first published in our written warning on the Coronavirus on February 28, 2020. In that write up, we cited two public health officials in China stating that it is airborne, and a Singapore newspaper quoting the Singapore Ministry of Health sting that it is airborne. We also posted up video of the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) stating in a press conference that the Coronavirus is airborne. And yet WHO has also not made this part of its public recommendations on how this virus spreads or how to avoid becoming infected. See below.
COVID19 IS AIRBORNE! President Trump MUST immediately shut down all commercial airline traffic. Every airlines flight puts all passengers at significant risk of being infected precisely because all it takes is one infected person onboard a flight to infect others, just as the infected man on the bus in China infected others. Likewise, all public trains, buses, and subway systems should be shut down for the same reasons.
Frankly, we find this very frustrating and disturbing. It is highly unlikely that the CDC was not aware of the reports out of China and Singapore that this is an airborne (aerosol) virus that we referred to back on February 28, 2020. it is likewise unlikely that the CDC is ignorant of the Chinese study of the airborne spread on a public bus, that was published in Chinese media on March 9, 2020 .
But now that it is being widely reported in U.S. media that an American level 4 bio-lab has done its own study and concluded that it is indeed capable of being spread as an aerosol that lingers in the air for up to a half an hour. What else will it take for the CDC to change its recommendations to the American people, or to elected officials? What will it take for the White House task force on the virus to take decisive action by advising the President to shut down all domestic air travel? Or to warn the American people to stop using mass-transit? Or to recommend that all schools be shut down, since it will also spread like wildfire through a school just as easily as on a public bus?
Don’t wait for the bureaucrats. You must decide on your own to avoid all enclosed spaces, and especially while traveling. Stop flying, stop riding the subway, stop riding buses. And do all you can to avoid being in any enclosed public space with other people.
Below is a reprint of what we published on February 28, 2020 on how this virus can be transmitted by being suspended in the air, over time, as well as though contact (in droplets via sneezes or coughs, or indirect contact from droplets on surfaces):
[START OF EXCERPT FROM FEB 28 2020 OATH KEEPERS WARNING]
3. Aerosol (Airborne) transfer
Aerosol (airborne) transfer means that the virus can float in the air over time in enclosed spaces and infect whomever it comes into contact with. You could become infected by breathing in contaminated air or by it entering your eyes, just like measles, smallpox, or tuberculosis, which are far more contagious than a flu. For example, it could linger in the air and move from room to room inside a school, office building, church, hotel, store, apartment building, airport, etc., as well as from room to room inside a home, infecting anyone in that space.
On February 8, 2020, Chinese health officials reported that the virus was transferable through THREE mechanisms, including aerosol (airborne):
“Confirmed transmission routes of the novel coronavirus include direct transmission, contact transmission and aerosol transmission, a Shanghai official said on Saturday.
Aerosol transmission refers to the mixing of the virus with droplets in the air to form aerosols, which causes infection after inhalation, according to medical experts,” said Zeng Qun, deputy head of the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau.
As such, we have called on the public to raise their awareness of the prevention and control of the disease caused by family gatherings,” said Zeng during at a daily media briefing by the municipal government regarding efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
Experts explained that direct transmission refers to infection caused by inhalation of air close to a patient who sneezes and coughs, while contact transmission occurs when a person touches an object tainted with droplets containing the virus before infecting himself through subsequent contact with the membranes of his mouth, nose and eyes.
The government has urged residents to avoid gatherings, open windows to help with ventilation, practice good personal hygiene and regularly disinfect their homes, especially areas like door handles, dinner tables and toilet seats.”
Then the Chinese state-controlled media walked back on that, saying there is “no definitive answer” whether the virus is airborne.
“The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention has also corrected the announcement saying coronavirus was not known to be an airborne virus.”
However, on February 20, 2020 Thailand Medical News quoted a Chinese official briefing from Peking as also stating that the virus can be transmitted via aerosol (airborne) transmission:
“Speaking at a press conference Thursday in Beijing, Dr Wang Guiqiang, director of the infectious disease department of the Peking University First Hospital, explained the changes in the sixth scheme (6th edition after amendments), which is China’s version of official clinical guidelines for the diagnostics and treatment of the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus which causes the Covid-19 disease.
Besides elaborating on the new changes in diagnostic criteria, Dr Wang said that the new clinical guidelines accepts that not only can the coronavirus be airborne but also that the virus can be transmitted if someone was exposed to high concentrations of aerosol in a relatively closed environment for a long time.
Dr Wang stressed that “The aerosol transmission happens conditionally.” He stressed however that it is very important to know that aerosol transmission is not always possible.
The aerosol transmission refers to the mixing of the virus with droplets in the air to form aerosols, which can float for long distances and cause infection after inhalation.
This is an about turn when China had refuted this in the first week of February when a leading Shanghai virologists had announced that the coronavirus was airborne. He was also reprimanded by Chinese government authorities.”
This was also reported by the Singapore based newspaper, The Straights Times:
“China’s health authorities also said that the coronavirus can be transmitted when someone is exposed to high concentrations of aerosol in a relatively closed environment for a long time.
Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) emphasised on Thursday that the publication recognised close contact and respiratory droplets are still the predominant mode of transmission for the virus. MOH said the publication also contained three caveats for aerosol transmission: That it is possible with prolonged exposure, through high concentrations, and in a closed environment. An example of such an environment would be an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).”
We do not trust the Chinese government, or its state-controlled media, to say the least. Nor do we trust The World Health Organization (WHO), which still refuses to list the Coronavirus as an aerosol (airborne) transmittable virus, despite the fact that WHO’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated that “Corona is airborne” in a Feb. 11, 2020 press conference:
The Director stated that Coronavirus is more contagious than Ebola, because Coronavirus is airborne. Ebola is transmitted via body fluids, either directly (direct contact with body fluids, including droplets coughed up by victims), or through surface contact (droplets left on surface). The man did not make a mistake when he said the Coronavirus is more contagious than Ebola because it is airborne. But since then, this public admission has been shoved down the rabbit hole. Apparently the Director slipped for a moment and forgot the party line.
Evidence from The Diamond Princess incident would also suggest that the COVID19 is airborne. The cruise ship quarantined in Japan had 705 confirmed cases among its passengers, with four dying. The passengers were confined to their rooms once passengers became ill. This leads me to believe that the virus IS airborne and therefore passed among the passengers through the ship’s ventilation system.
Airborne transmission would also explain the case of a single infected woman in South Korea infecting a large number of people at a religious gathering.
There is also the rapidly emerging community clusters in Iran, Italy, and other European and Middle Eastern countries, with a large number of people contracting the disease in an area.
Despite all of the above, both the WHO and CDC continue in their failure to warn of the distinct possibility or near certainty that this virus is airborne, and are still reluctant to call this a pandemic, but Dr. John Campbell, an epidemiologist in the UK, is of the opinion that the Coronavirus actually is already a pandemic and that world-wide measures should be taken now. In the following video, Dr. Campbell describes not just how the Chinese officials have admitted it is transmitted through aerosol spread (airborne spread), but additional reasons why he believes it is airborne (the Diamond Princes incident, and an example of spread through sewage systems in an apartment building), and what that means for how easily it can travel through the air from one room to another:
And in this video, Dr. Campbell goes into detail on the difference between droplet and airborne (aerosol) transmission:
We find Dr. Campbell to be very credible. He has no skin in the game when it comes to domestic American politics, and doesn’t even say anything about politics in his country, aside from simply stating that the response has been inadequate. He is an epidemiologist, and it is clear that his only interest is in helping people, and keeping disease from spreading.
