1. The R0 in the movie Contagion was 1.5.

The R0 Coronavirus is between 2.6 and 6.0. R Naught or R0 is the term used to explain how contagious a virus is. The H1N1 virus in the movie meant 1 and 1/2 people would get sick from having direct contact with the individuals germs. Coronavirus 2 and a half-6 individuals will get sick from contact with germs from this virus.
This helped me greatly understand what we will be facing.

2. Anyone thinking

that this may have been a Chinese Biological Warfare Test that got out of hand? LOL

The Chinese Gov't has been firing or demoting hundreds of their National Health Staff over this. Why else would they do that???????

8. there are theories

but it depends on how wide you want to go.

Chinese gov't still refused US CDC to visit, which raised suspicions

now, the following is my own opinion after looking at all the information available to me, in English, Chinese and Japanese

I'm leaning towards this virus was altered. The release was an accident, and not on purpose.

now, some of the rumors ARE quite extreme, such as "this was made to infect more Asians because of the ACE2 genes", yeah a racist virus that affects asians with median age of 45.

9. Like I said,

A chinese experiment that got out of hand.........

No one knows for a fact what USAMRID does, but they too may be "altering" viruses?

And as I said, in some other post, the U.S. Government has done the same, but on purpose, not by accident....
