My thoughts

I got the "flu" in November 2019 and I had the same symptoms as
Coronavirus - I thought it was going to kill me - and while I missed
some work - work demanded me back - and so I worked through some
terrible times. Everyone at work was sick with different levels of
symptoms. To this day I have still not 100% recovered - but I am poor
and have no health insurance - and, well, everybody has been exposed
for months so it doesn't even matter anymore. No one has died - but
everyone has a low level persistent respiratory illness.

Is is it an engineered bio-weapon or natural? From what I have read -
I believe it is an engineered bio-weapon which is being used by the
elites to fight a battle for World Control.

The Federal Reserve - which is neither - is now over 100 years old and
the rest of the World is questioning their fiat currency. With the
Saudi ARAMCO IPO - I'm guessing that will end the Federal Reserve
Saudi oil backed Petrodollar. People seem to forget that the Saudi oil
backed Petrodollar was the result of President Richard Millhouse Nixon
repudiation of the 1945 Bretton Woods agreement. The cause for the
repudiation was because French President Charles DeGaulle was no fool
and was trading in massive amounts of fiat dollars for physical gold.

"On August 15, 1971, President Nixon announced on TV 3 dramatic changes in economic policy. He imposed a wage-price freeze. He ended the Bretton Woods international monetary system. And he imposed a temporary surcharge (tariff) on all imports. The Bretton Woods system was created towards the end of World War II and involved fixed exchange rates with the U.S. dollar as the key currency - but also a role for gold linked to the dollar at $35/ounce. The system began to falter in the 1960s because of an excess of dollars flowing out of the U.S. which foreign central banks had to absorb. A run on gold in 1968 was stemmed by a patch on Bretton Woods known as the two-tier gold system. All of this was ended unilaterally by the Nixon decision. After a brief attempt to create a modified fixed exchange rate system, the world moved to flexible rates."

Coronavirus - How To Lift Lockdowns And Why We Should All Wear Masks

While the U.S. president continues to blame China there are more signs that the outbreak started elsewhere:
Some question why Italy was caught off guard when the virus outbreak was revealed on Feb. 21. 
Remuzzi says he is now hearing information about it from general practitioners. "They remember having seen very strange pneumonia, very severe, particularly in old people in December and even November," he says. 
"This means that the virus was circulating, at least in [the northern region of] Lombardy and before we were aware of this outbreak occurring in China."
The sudden appearance of a new type of coronavirus against which no one had any immunity led to a sudden rise of cases with severe respiratory difficulties. These require up to three weeks of ventilator support and intensive care.

Our healthcare systems are not capable to work under such an onslaught. If they get overwhelmed other cases which require intensive care will fall by the wayside. The number of unnecessary deaths then starts to explode.

The only possible way to avoid such an outcome is to minimize contacts between humans to stop the mass infection wave.

When the first wave exploded in Wuhan city the authorities ordered a complete lockdown of the city and of Hubei province. That happened on January 23. Twelve days later, on February 4, the number of new cases in Wuhan started to decline. The Lombardy region in Italy ordered a lockdown on March 9. Twelve days later Italy reported its first decline of new cases.

While the hospitals in Wuhan as well as in Lombardy were for a while overwhelmed the further outbreak has been slowed if not stopped.

(Wuhan is notorious for air pollution but Lombardy is not. The theory that air pollution has contributed to the high number of severe cases in both regions is thus not confirmed.)

Lockdowns have been ordered in several European nations and in several U.S. states. Boeing and other companies have shut down their production facilities in Washington state. Many people are now unemployed. The situations in various states look dire.

But the lockdowns work and they will limit the rise of the current wave.
