We can’t really know who to trust when it comes to news on the Coronavirus outbreak.

I found a video on YouTube of an actual Wuhan resident speaking on the state of affairs in China.

This video is now almost 48 hours old, published on the 25th, but hopefully it will help cut through some of the false information we are getting here in America.

From Deepclips:

Read a partial transcript of the video below.

0:29: So I’ve got no other choice but to seek help from here [and] hope there’s Chinese comrades and people with kindness [will] watch this, and be aware about this Wuhan Pneumonia so called “Coronavirus” pandemic, the severity of the situation, and the actual living condition of us Wuhan people.

0:49: Right now, the entire Wuhan has its entire transportation system, public transport halted, all of them. For example, gas stations are no longer in service.

1:39: Hospitals are packed. The doctors don’t tell you to get registered or anything, you just have to line up. You might have to wait hours in line and still can’t get treated. Perhaps you were fine before, but after queuing up for hours, you get contaminated.

3:09: It [wasn’t until the] 23rd, when Wuhan was locked down, we finally [had] some sort of flyers all over our place, flyers to demand everyone … wear a mask and then from 23rd to 24th and now 25th, we finally started seeing people wearing masks. So it is not about the citizens refusing to wear masks. it is about the local government [not doing] anything at all, or maybe they even have some ulterior motive.

3:59: And the current situation is definitely just as bad as the 2003 SARS, if not worse.

4:40: I have a lot of friends who work at hospitals [that say] if you enter a hospital, they’ll just give you some anti-inflammatory drugs or some hormone injection or to put it bluntly, you are just left for dead. If you are strong you might make it through. If you [aren’t], you’re dead.

5:05: And the worst thing is some of the “suspected case” are just as good as confirmed but they [have run] out of test solutions or something like that or they simply don’t have enough resources or manpower to test it. They’ll just tell you to go home and isolate yourselves.

5:39: How can they just toss you away like that? If you are a super-spreader, then doesn’t it mean that the government, or the medical facility just told you to carry the virus all over the place? And cross-contaminate everyone?

6:16: I don’t have any ulterior motive. I simply think that in one’s lifetime, There will always come to the time where you must speak out the truth.

6:45: Wuhan is like the f–king hell right now. It used to be a very civil place.

07:12: Every moment, you can see videos on twitter or other social medias some familiar roads of Wuhan, or someone with a Wuhan accent, some random person just drops dead or all kinds of scenarios. All those tragedies are just happening on the first day of Lunar New Year.

9:39: And this virus, it’s not causing symptoms as the officials said, fever, cough or whatever. Even if you have no fever and no coughs, you can still have the disease. And it’s not only through oral transmissions. It can also get you through your eyes mucus. This is already confirmed.

10:10: During the new year rush, a million or two have already left Wuhan. What about those people? How to you prevent them from spreading the disease? Are you gonna lock the whole China down?

The 5th American case was verified on Sunday.

This is indeed a frightening prospect, but we are still trying to figure out the truth of what is happening and the dangers that are present.

That final link, of an article written before the latest news, turned out to be mildly prophetic as Weather.com reported on Sunday.

Two new U.S. cases of the deadly coronavirus that is spreading from central China were confirmed Sunday: one in Los Angeles County, California, and the other in Maricopa County, Arizona.

This brings to five the total number of cases in the U.S.. All of the U.S. patients had traveled to Wuhan, the Chinese city that is the center of the outbreak, according to The Associated Press.

Canada also has reported its first case of the disease, which has killed 56 people and sickened more than 2,000.

***Emphasis mine


Buckle up America.

This could lead anywhere.

This seems to be a bit more real than previous Ebola scares, but it is hard to make a concrete judgment yet.

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
