The expert explained why the panic is escalating around the coronavirus

Recently сообщалосьthat the 2019-nCoV coronavirus epidemic could become global in 2 months. However, the TV presenter and head doctor of the City Clinical Hospital (City Clinical Hospital) No. 71 (Moscow) Alexander Myasnikov does not agree with this point of view. In his opinion, the panic around pneumonia of a new type is forced ("warmed up") artificially.

He announced this in his Telegram channel, noting that hysteria is growing not only in Russian but also in the media of other countries. However, he does not deny that heated discussions can be beneficial.

The probability of a global catastrophe from some new infectious disease is very - alas! - possible. But not now. Take it easy - not now

- he stressed.

Myasnikov said that coronavirus “once again demonstrated that it can cause not only a banal acute respiratory disease (ARI)”, which every person was sick with.

Its variety, which in nature occurs only in animals, mutated and acquired the ability to be transmitted from animals to humans, and then from person to person. While causing viral pneumonia with a high mortality rate. This has already happened with coronavirus. Therefore, Chinese scientists, having examined the genome of this new mutation, so called this virus: “New Coronavirus - 2019

- explained the doctor.

Myasnikov recalled that the first outbreak of acute viral infection caused by bat coronavirus (SARS-Co) occurred in China in 2002. It spread very quickly across the planet, affecting 25 countries, and was called "severe acute respiratory failure."

According to Myasnikov, the most suspicious thing in that story is the huge amount of expenses - $ 100 billion that was incurred by international and national organizations involved in health care. Indeed, according to many virologists, then the outbreak of infection was not defeated, it just came to naught. That is, someone transferred substantial public funds received from taxpayers into the pockets of private pharmaceutical companies.

But titanic efforts have been made and funds spent. That is mastered. I repeat: $ 100 billion according to some published data. Do I need to continue the thought, or doesn’t my person need to explain anything further ?! For 18 years, 8092 became ill, 774 died. Every year, he gets so much sick from the flu and dies in any city of a million ... (no, there are more from the complications of the flu!). And here for almost 20 years to sit on such financing!

- noted Myasnikov.

Myasnikov believes that for some, a new outbreak of coronavirus is a “gift of fate”, because the previous self-destructed one year ago. He added that the vaccine was never given from the previous coronavirus.

So: there is a disease, it has already affected 0,00000024% of the population of China. The genotype of the virus is known, it will soon be possible to accurately identify. Work on a vaccine

- emphasized Myasnikov.

But to the question: “Why such a panic and escalation?” - the classic answer: “Look for those who benefit from it!”

- summed up Myasnikov.

It must be recalled that, according to the latest data, 2,4 thousand people were infected with a new infection, of which 80 died.

    3% mortality - this is still not enough.
    And if he still like the Flu will change - then it's time to panic ....

    We have so many die of pneumonia ...

      What do you think came out 3%?
      About 3000 infected, of whom 81 died and 59 were cured. First you need to check what happens to the rest. If the trend continues, the death toll is much higher than 50%.

        So it's time to panic.
        I figured -

        ... 2,4 thousand people were infected, of which 80 died.

        - divide - 3% came out.
        But you are right, it should not be considered so.

          It is still unknown what will happen to the rest. They have not yet been cured. Can you read? Wrote the same:

            And here you are right. He wrote - "But you are right, it is necessary to consider not so."
            Can you read? )))

    No one is embarrassed by the fact that as soon as serious events take place in the country, such as the next coup and redistribution of power, the theme of a global epidemic starts immediately, people are worried about meeting the Chinese, and what they are doing to the constitution and government not interested.

      and what is being done with the constitution at this time

      What’s wrong with her? It was originally written under the American dictation: international interest is higher than the state one ... how many petitions have already been - have not been changed, have finally broken out ... but even there were dissatisfied ...

    The point is not - good or bad, but that people are distracted from serious events by such cheating methods.

    A sensible doctor and just a smart person IMHO, 100% right! Many times I heard his reviews about pharmaceutical campaigns and their products. He is the only doctor who is not afraid to publicly voice the postulate that a person is able to heal himself in 80% of cases. Those. 80 people out of 100 in vain attend medical facilities!

    Interesting math. Give the fourth-graders a task, I hope they "draw" the right percentage of 81 people from 3000 = 2,7%, and if everyone dies, then 140 - it will be 4,6%. Such is the math. At school, it was necessary not to miss arithmetic in the elementary grades.

    Percentage of mortality from annual influenza by country 1%. Affected hundreds of thousands, millions and tens of millions, depending on the population. Thousands and tens of thousands have died from the flu. Coronaviruses and all sorts of cow, pig, rooster flu and all sorts of Ebola are more deadly, but less tenacious. Please note: these unusual diseases for humans appear in a one-time outbreak and disappear. We no longer hear about them.
    I think that their appearance is a deliberate activity of the diving agents developing bacteriological weapons in a possible conspiracy with pharmacists. Some people check the effect of their viruses, others push their rotten products out of the air.
