China Calls Up Military Doctors to Treat Coronavirus

Chinese officials have said that they intend to deploy 1,400 medical personnel from the military to treat patients infected with the deadly coronavirus.

According to reports, President Xi Jinping ordered the military to begin airlifting hundreds of doctors and nurses, as well as 58 tons of medical supplies to the epicenter of the deadly virus, the Bangkok Post reported.

The medics will handle patients at the recently-completed Huoshenshan Hospital, which was built in a matter of days strictly to deal with the growing coronavirus outbreak. The hospital, which has 1,000 beds, will began admitting patients Monday, Feb. 3, after the number of confirmed cases in China has climbed to nearly 15,000!

The New York Post says that the medical staff will consist of 950 members from the People’s Liberation Army in addition to 450 people enrolled at medical universities for the armed services, state news agency Xinhua reported.

The Post also reports that The Vatican has sent hundreds of thousands of face masks to China to try to help combat the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

“The masks are destined to the provinces of Hubei, Zhejiang and Fujian,” where the outbreak has hit particularly hard, the Vatican’s press office told the Catholic News Service in an email. “It is a joint initiative of the Office of Papal Charities and the Chinese Church in Italy, in collaboration with the Vatican pharmacy.”

However, according to Trump administration officials, China has so far refused to allow the CDC into the country to help on the coronavirus.

“We continue to offer assistance to the Chinese. We have offered to send over the CDC and other US medical and public health officials,” White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien told CBS TV’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We have not heard back yet from the Chinese on the offers, but we are prepared to continue to cooperate with them.”

Chinese officials said the virus — which has no cure — has killed more than 300 people, mostly in the central Hubei province, where the outbreak originated last month.

    Biowarfare virus containing HIV OUT OF CHINA. The antidote, as always, is your own immune system. Think IODINE (black walnut hull tincture, seafoods). Think Overeating (gluttony) as deadly here as as always. Think moderation, sometimes very high moderation, as in one small meal/day for starters. Overeating destroys digestion & that destroys all other systems. 
    Plague lactoferment: in water salted well with Celtic Sea Salt, puree garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish, mushroom (no vinegar. This ferments itself). Keep on countertop 3 days then refrigerate. Use immediately as needed. Teaspoon doses or less. Super potent digestive & digestive enzyme source, meaning it’s a powerful immune system support & restorative.
    Drug care is not health care. Vaccines do not bring health. Medical monopoly is no better than any monopoly. US emergency medicine is important, but is not about health.

    Our emergency care system is excellent. But emergency care is not health care. Drug care is not healthcare. Vaccines don’t bring health.

    This is beyond sad. That the Chinese government will not (at least as of yet) let an international group in their country to help speaks volumes, at least to some of us. What do they have to hide?!?
