Coronavirus Gets A New Name And Chinese Whistle-Blowers Are Disappearing
The coronavirus has been wreaking havoc in numerous ways around the globe for three months now.
American Airlines have suspended flights to Hong Kong and China through late April. Delta Airlines canceled all flights to China through late April. United Airlines has suspended flights to China until late March and Hong Kong through late February.
Top health officials in Geneva have finally given this unique coronavirus a name. On Tuesday Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus the director-general at the World Health Organization announced the virus’s new name “COVID-19.”
“Co stands for coronavirus, Vi is for virus and D is for disease. Health officilals purposely avoided nameing COVID-19 after a geographical location, animal or group of people.”
“Having a name matters, to prevent the use of other names that can be inaccurate or stigmatizing.”

- Food prices in China skyrocket

China has super strict laws against people who speak out and reveal information via social media or press.

Most recently two men inside the epicenter filmed videos showing how bad things are in China, both men have recently disappeared. Watch the videos below for yourself and let us know what you think IMUer’s.
