Planet Earth is running out of resources and the environment is on the brink of collapse.
Is a worldwide (clean up) disaster looming?
Some scientists who believe in the self-recuperating forces of nature think that it is only a matter of time that some event, a meteorite, earthquakes, volcanos or a wide spread illness will cause mass extinction and reset the planet.
The corona virus type as emerged in China can wipe out a substantial part of the world population. The economic consequences are tremendous but the planet can breathe again.
What makes the current outbreak of the so called Wuhan coronavirus so dangerous and potentially unbeatable is that the virus can spread by humans before they show any symptoms.
Patients with earlier types of the deadly coronavirus, like Sars and and Ebola are only contagious when symptoms appear.
That makes it relatively easier to identify and isolate patients in an early stage as symptoms appear.
The Wuhan corona virus is an entirely different challenge.
The absence of early symptoms will make the job of the authorities much more difficult.
As the China death number is rising and hospitals overcrowded with sick people, many cities in the affected areas are in total lockdown.
Shops are empty, no food, pharmacists running out of medicine and public transport on hold. It is also forbidden to use your car and drive.
To fight the spread of the virus, authorities expect that travel restrictions will increase to a larger area and widen to an international level.
This all could be enough to cause initially shortages, famine and end up in a worldwide economic crisis never seen before. During the past couple of days, Oil prices fell more than 10 dollar. What’s now going on might end society as we know it.
Surprisingly it can silence the climate terror and put politicians back to reality with both feet on the ground and open eyes for the real threats.
It is a widespread belief that viruses come from outer space.
They hide in meteorites.
As a result, the first affected beings are outdoor living animals.
At a certain stage, the virus mutates and jumps over to the human population. A major (expected) outbreak of a deadly disease that decreases the world population is already overdue.
This might be the one.
