According to the Office of the United States Trade Representative, U.S. imports from China accounted for 21.2% of all U.S. imports in 2018 with the top import categories being: electrical machinery ($152 billion), machinery ($117 billion), furniture and bedding ($35 billion), toys and sports equipment ($27 billion), and plastics ($19 billion).
With about 20% of the entire world's imports coming from China according to this Bloomberg story and the map seen above from their story giving us a more accurate projection about US imports from China in 2020, even outlets such as NPR, Voice of America, and the Financial Times have recently put out stories joining Bloomberg in warning of major disruptions ahead in the global supply chain due to coronavirus.
And while the CDC reports that the 'survivability'of most coronaviruses on the surfaces of objects that might be shipped over to America or elsewhere from China is very low, with a very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures, one of the most important factors in determining just how far coronavirus might spread is just how long it is able to survive on surfaces that others unknowingly touch with coronavirus spread by 'respiratory droplets' after an infected person coughs or sneezes.
With Americans long accustomed to the phrase 'made in China' on our products and the growing possibility that under the 'right conditions', shed coronavirus 'could survive' upon 'surfaces' of such products, as ANP reader 'KSR' recently warned in an email to us, nobody is talking about all the Chinese-made products heading to “a store shelf near you”!
With so many infected in China and not knowing it and going to work each day to supply Wal-Mart, et al, are those contaminated products already here or be here in days?????? How about someone addressing this issue and what stores will have these products (the “dollar stores,” Harbor Freight, etc.)? Their products are the ultimate 'Trojan Horse'! /KSR ......
As this story over at the Conservative Review had reported, all of those long-thought vanquished diseases spreading in Democrat-run cities are a perfect example of how 'Democrat's twisted priorities' endanger public health, quite literally creating the perfect pandemic breeding grounds right here in the USA. And with China now making mass arrests of those suspected of having the disease as the Daily Mail reports in this new story, literally dragging people off the streets and out of their homes to be thrown into quarantine/death camps, a coronavirus outbreak is a recipe for martial law in America.
So we'll be taking a look in the next section below at the latest concerning stories about coronavirus including its' arrival in New Jersey aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship and the 1st American death from the disease in China while in the final section of this story, we'll be reviewing all of the different warnings coming out now about global supply shortages most certainly ahead with warnings coming out across both the mainstream and indepenent media outlets.
So when we see pictures like those above from this Daily Mail story of mass arrests taking place in China and then stories about a Royal Caribbean 'virus ship' docking in America with potentially infected passengers aboard, and possibly even worse, medics NOT wearing any masks while wheeling out possibly infected people, we have to ask how many more people on that ship might have had contact with those people over the past several days? And how many more might be in contact with the medics not wearing masks in the coming days? And why are the Chinese people quite literally being treated like wild animals?
And if the virus does live on surfaces for a short period of time, might others on that ship, employees or vacationers, have contacted the 'respiratory droplets' from those who might be infected? Each such situation that unfolds here in America brings more and more chances of this thing getting out and getting totally out of hand and if the warnings in stories such as this new story over at DC Dirty Laundry are correct, America and the world might have a bioweapon on the loose.
Dr. Francis Boyle: Well, that’s a lot of questions. I guess we can take them one at a time, but if you just do a very simple Google search on “Does China have a BSL-4 laboratory?”, Wuhan comes up right away. It’s at the top of the list. That’s all with the moment this type of thing happened I began to do that. So a BSL-4 is the most serious type. And basically BSL-4 labs, we have many of them here in the United States, are used to develop offensive biological warfare weapons with DNA genetic engineering.
So it does seem to me that the Wuhan BSL-4 is the source of the coronavirus. My guess is that they were researching SARS, and they weaponized it further by giving it a gain of function properties, which means it could be more lethal.
Indeed, the latest report now is it’s a 15% fatality rate, which is more than SARS at 83% infection rate. A typical gain of function travels in the air so it could reach out maybe six feet or more from someone emitting a sneeze or a cough. Likewise, this is a specially designated WHO research lab. The WHO was in on it and they knew full well what was going on there.
The bottom line is I drafted the US domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention that was approved unanimously by both Houses in the United States Congress signed into law by President Bush Sr. that it appears the coronavirus that we’re dealing with here is an offensive biological warfare weapon that leaped out of Wuhan BSL-4. I’m not saying it was done deliberately. But there had been previous reports of problems with that lab and things leaking out of it. I’m afraid that is what we are dealing with today.
Why would the msm report that coronavirus ISN'T a bioweapon and call such reports 'misinformation' and 'hoaxes' if it REALLY IS a 'bio-weapon' as Dr. Boyle claims? More signs something very sinister is going on.
For two weeks major airlines have either scaled back or outright cancelled service to China, and many global retailers, including coffee chain Starbucks and furniture giant Ikea, have announced that they are temporarily closing outlets there. Yum brands, the owner of well-known fast food chains including KFC and Pizza Hut, said that it had been forced to close nearly a third of its stores in the country.
The impact is now growing outside China. This week, Hyundai Motor Company announced that it had been forced to suspend production at its plants in South Korea because parts made in China were no longer available. Nintendo announced that shipments of its popular Switch gaming platform would be delayed, and luxury brands including Estee Lauder, Coach, and Kate Spade have warned that the outbreak may have a significant negative effect on sales.
Apart from company statements, there is little data available to assess the immediate impact of the virus on global trade. But among experts, there is no doubt that the economic fallout from the situation will be noticeable and potentially severe.
Hyundai and Kia are having to shut down their plants in South Korea because of the lack of parts coming from China . They are going to request that the plants in China be re-opened in order to supply the companies needs for parts. This is from a Korean news outlet. GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAINS ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE BROKEN CAUSING FACTORY SHUTDOWNS IN EVERY COUNTRY DEPENDING ON CHINA FOR RAW MATERIALS OR PARTS OF ANY TYPE HIGH TECH COMPANIES ARE ESPECIALLY HARD HIT BECAUSE THEY ALL WORK JUST IN TIME TO KEEP THE INVENTORIES LOW BECAUSE OF FAST DESIGN CHANGES AND PRODUCT CHANGES
