Wuhan whistle-blower doctors warn of deadlier Covid-19 reinfection and a incubation period of 24 days

China has been battling an outbreak of a new SARS-like coronavirus (COVID-19), which originated in Wuhan. The virus has claimed over 2,700 lives and infected nearly 80,000 people around the world. Outside mainland China, fatalities have been reported in countries such as the Philippines, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Taiwan, Iran, South Korea and Italy.

The other nations and regions infected by the novel coronavirus are Algeria, Switzerland, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Australia, Belgium, Cambodia, Canada, Finland, Germany, India, Malaysia, Nepal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, the U.K., the U.S. and Vietnam. According to the National Health Commission of China, nearly 30,000 people have since recovered from the infection.

Doctors in China have warned that the Covid-19 could be even deadlier for patients who catch it again.

According to a report in the New York Post last week, the whistle-blower physicians in Wuhan have found that medically cleared patients have been getting reinfected.

“It’s highly possible to get infected a second time,” said one of the doctors, who declined to be identified.

The doctor added that the virus has “outsmarted all of us”, as he claims that its symptoms do not show for up to 24 days — which contradicts medical information today that the incubation period is two weeks.

He claimed that patients’ test results often come up as false negatives before they are actually diagnosed with the illness.

“It can fool the test kit — there were cases that they found, the CT scan shows both lungs are fully infected but the test came back negative four times,” the whistle-blower said. “The fifth test came back positive.”

The article also reported that some medication used to treat the virus can have negative side-effects on heart tissue, making patients more susceptible to cardiac arrest.

“A few people recovered from the first time by their own immune system, but the meds they use are damaging their heart tissue, and when they get it the second time, the antibody doesn’t help but makes it worse, and they die a sudden death from heart failure,” he added.

In Singapore, one new case of Covid-19 was confirmed on Monday (Feb 24), according to the Ministry of Health. Another two people were discharged.

This brought the total number of cases to 90, of which 53 had fully recovered. /TISG

  1. You’ve never done anything that had a 2.6% chance of death. 20% of identified cases require hospitalization with 8% resulting in respiratory failure. What exactly do you know about pneumonia, and repeated bouts of pneumonia over the course of your lifetime? Do you know that this disease also causes scarring of internal organs like the liver and heart? Do you know you aren’t immune to this after getting it? People are getting it 3 weeks later again. Vaccines may actually make you more likely to get this, and also more lethal for slightly different strains (just like SARS). Also, how exactly do you think you will survive your respiratory failure if only even 10% of the population gets this? We have 800,000 ICU rooms in this country, and maybe 100,000 are available at any given time. You won’t be able to get treatment. That is when the tent hospitals get built (just like China). China has the flu every year. They don’t rush out and build 2 1,000 bed tent hospitals overnight, and convert 11 apartment buildings into 10,000 unit isolation wards. 60 million Chinese haven’t left their apartment in almost 2 months, and the is still spreading at 300+ cases a day (their numbers). Soon they have to go back to work to keep the economy going and plant food, and this will take off yet again. They can’t stop it soon enough. They are spraying bleach clouds in the air to kill this. The R0 is 6.7 to 7.6 according to a Lancet study. By that number this would double every 2.4 days. Yet it is almost doubling every day in South Korea and Italy. This virus will soon be everywhere in the world and infect many people you know. No doubt about it…
