Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department overruled the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and last Monday they chartered two planes that returned 14 Americans who are infected with the new coronavirus (along with unwitting and apparently healthy passengers) . Those Americans are now in California and Texas.

The CDC’s principal deputy director, Anne Schuchat, recommended that the 14 infected passengers be taken off the plane and receive medical attention in Japan. But Trump officials like Robert Kadlec, assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the HHS, disagreed with the CDC.

Kadlec’s medical expertise is in the field of bio weapons—not in the fields of epidemiology, virology, or pathology. Bioweapons are intended to sicken and kill people.

Is this an intentional effort to widen the spread of the pandemic?

The coronavirus outbreak & the subsequent closure of countless manufacturing sites in China along with the delays in exporting their cheaply-made goods is a sign...a sign that global economics favoring China are grossly imbalanced & American retailers ruthlessly profiteering off them will be punished as well.

It's more than just a virus.
