At least 52 people from a single flight from Delhi to Hong Kong have tested positive for Covid-19, despite all passengers presenting a negative coronavirus test before boarding. All of the passengers who tested positive flew into Hong Kong on a flight from India's capital, run by Indian airline Vistara on April 4. Hong Kong as a whole has been recording fewer daily new infections than the total number detected on the flight, since it brought a fourth wave of infections under control in January. Meanwhile in India, the country's healthcare system is collapsing under a devastating second wave of coronavirus that is killing


Why are people traveling at all if the disease is so contagious, especially people traveling from an area with their Nth wave?

FTA: "Health experts have insisted that advanced plane ventilation systems make the risk of catching the virus from a fellow passenger is extremely low, and there are a number of theories to explain the Hong Kong flight cluster apart from transmission on the plane."

Either the covid test was bogus at the Delhi airport or the test given in Hong Kong was bogus. Or both.

At the moment everyone seems to be assuming that all these variants and multiple new "waves" of infection in various countries are simply due to natural causes (virus mutations and transmissions due to population movements). What if that's not the case? What if it's serial biowarfare? I'm not claiming that it is, but it does give one pause to consider the "What if" possibility. China has certainly learned a lot in the 18 months or so since the virus escaped or was launched from their lab. One of the things they learned is that they can, with minimal cost or retaliation risk, pretty much cripple the economy of its enemies and even kill a sizable portion of their population with nobody pointing the finger at them as the perpetrator of such a devastating mass casualty action. Sure beats launching missiles or sinking aircraft carriers and then getting obliterated for having done so.

Of all these "cases" maybe one in a thousand will be sick enough to maybe die. So maybe 0.1% Average flu looks to be about 0.6%. For this we closed the world?

Great example of the test dynamics and it had nothing to do with on-board contagiousness. Where one draws the line re: definition of positive/negative can determine the result. If you politically want a negative test set your parameters accordingly. If you want for political reasons millions of 'cases'...........easy peasy.

Listen up, Folks! There is a very easy explanation for this apparent phenomenon and it has to do with how the "test" detects the virus, which test is called POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION, or PCR for short. This test puts the sample through successive "cycles," each cycle exactly doubling the number of virus particles, so if the original "test" protocol called for only, say, 25 cycles, there may not have been enough particles in the original sample to trigger a "POSITIVE" result but if the second "test" protocol called for 45 cycles, the sample would have gone through 20 more doubling cycles and would have been be detected as "POSITIVE."

Simple explanation for the sudden RISE in Covid 19 cases in India ~ as we all know by now Vitamin D3 is critical to the body's natural defense mechanisms that work against viruses. Some time in late March, every year, regular as clockwork, the Earth tilts relative to the Sun and the amount of light increases ~ a few minutes each day ~ but it adds up until MidSummer! The prevailing theory is that increased Sunlight is also associated with increased ultra-violet frequency light, and that serves to kill or suppress viruses like Covid 19. So, throughout the USA and much of the rest of the world, as we move inexorably into Summer sunlight levels, we see a drop in Covid 19 cases.... except where there's heavy overcast (e.g. Michigan and other Great Lakes region states and provinces). In India, though, people ~ and this is ALL people, not just SOME people ~ are prepared to meet the increased Sunlight with INCREASED production of protective melanin in their skin (call it tanning). That tanning decreases the flow of Ultraviolet light into their skin, and reduces their normal production of Vitamin D3...... That allows Covid 19 to attack more Indian people easier and faster, and hence the wave of infection cutting down people left and right! Other populations at the same latitude are not as well tuned to the Sun, and likely have not yet suffered from a drop in natural Vitamin D3 production. So, what to do? Well, supplement the diet with Vitamin D! Easily done. They need tons and tons of the stuff. India, alas, has only one domestic Vitamin D producer ~ Fermenta Biotech Limited After all, until this Pandemic the world didn't realize just what a big part Vitamin D played in holding back virus attacks....

The idea that more than fifty people can all develop symptoms within a few hours strains credulity. I think the Hong Kong test was ramped to a degree of sensitivity that rendered its results unreliable.

This is something I have used it for years to prevent viruses: maintaining a high lysine/ low arginine ratio in my diet. Many Indians are vegetarians and many vegetables, nuts and grains are high in arginine. This theory also explains seasonal viruses (pecan pie, anyone? Halloween candy?) and a lot more.

A man was caught at JFK Airport on Monday allegedly trying to smuggle in 35 live finches from Guyana—stuffed inside plastic hair curlers and concealed inside his clothes, authorities said. Kevin Andre McKenzie is just the latest alleged would-be songbird smuggler busted using the hair-accessory method to bring in the coveted creatures, which are used in high-stakes singing contests popular in Brooklyn and Queens. McKenzie allegedly told them he had been offered $3,000 to traffic the finches into the US. He was charged with the illegal importation of wildlife and was released on a $25,0000 bond, authorities said.
