An expert claims that deadly coronavirus can be spread through the EYES after he contracted the disease, despite wearing a protective mask.
Dr. Wang Guangfa has now theorized the similar coronavirus may be transmitted through the eye after testing positive following an eye infection.
Mr. Wang was a leading figure in the fight against SARS virus that gripped China in 2003.
We thought that this was the worst cover-up made by the communist government in China, but we thought wrong. Last week a video surfaced of a nurse wearing a protective suit and face mask treating the sick in Wuhan and claimed that 90,000 people have already been infected by the coronavirus in China – far more than the figure of just 1,400 issued by government officials.
Her warning from the heart of the outbreak emerged as the Chinese government faced accusations of censoring criticism of its handling of the disease in order to play down the crisis.
Speaking in video footage seen online, the unnamed woman says: ‘I’m in the area where the coronavirus started. I’m here to tell the truth. At this moment, Hubei province, including the Wuhan area, even China, 90,000 people have been infected by coronavirus.’
Luckily for us, it seems that this threat could soon be over.
Jack Posobieec tweeted that Italian researcher’s isolated Coronavirus, but also added if true.
If true, big https://t.co/8Wnvlmhzrn

Italian prime minister also confirmed the information via Twitter:
Italia tra i primi Paesi al mondo ad aver isolato il #coronavirus. Una notizia importantissima per lo sviluppo delle cure. Un grande plauso a ricercatori e staff medico dello Spallanzani. Orgogliosi del nostro Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, tra i migliori a livello mondiale

Open. Online reported:
An almost completely female team from the Virology laboratory of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases of the Spallanzani hospital in Rome who isolated the coronavirus. The team, directed by Maria Rosaria Capobianchi and coordinated by Maria Pisciotta, is made up of 14 women and one man. Capobianchi explained that the result obtained “is the result of teamwork, of the expertise and passion of the virologists of this institute, who has been at the forefront of all health emergencies in our country for years”.
“Isolating the virus will allow us to improve the response to the coronavirus emergency, to learn more about the mechanisms of the epidemic and to prepare the most appropriate measures,” added Giuseppe Ippolito, scientific director of Spallanzani. “Now it will be easier to find a vaccine for coronavirus, the cultivation of the virus is a fundamental fact for any credible preparation of aids and new strategies – Capobianchi said on the sidelines of the press conference on the coronavirus in Rome – Having the virus available means start from a good base ».
“Until a few days ago, the sequence data of the virus that the Chinese had published were available – explained the docteress – who did not bring the virus out of China despite having isolated it. The data and the diagnostics developed was based on theoretical data, they worked well, controls were designed, but now we can have real control, that is, the virus ».
“The diagnosis – continued Capobianchi – was made on a molecular basis, that is, the search for the virus’s RNA, and in record time, on the first two of our patients. Also in record time, we obtained the virus isolated in culture, that is, the biological sample of the patient that was grown on cells. After about 24 hours we observed the cytopathic effect. In that culture, we found the presence of the virus in quantities compatible with the fact that it was growing ».
Asked if the discovery helped research on a cure for Coronavirus, Capobianchi replied: “When new viruses are discovered, the initial starting material is precisely the virus – he replied – Having it available, and also having a growth system and in vitro cultivation, it gives us a tool to perfect the current diagnosis, which is molecular, and to perfect the serological tests that are not yet there, that is, the search for antibodies in the blood “.
“Then having the virus available allows us to try drugs in vitro and to have large quantities of viruses that can be used to develop a vaccine – he continued – or antigens and preparations that are then used for diagnostics. Finally, having the culture available allows us to study the pathogenesis, that is to understand the replication mechanisms, the relationships between the virus and the host cell that can be the target of therapeutic strategies – concluded the researcher – allow us to understand how it works virus replication. “
This could be huge news if this team of doctors can find the cure because last week Washington Examiner reported that Mad Money host Jim Cramer suggested that China might be covering up the truth about the “rapidly spreading” coronavirus that has shut down parts of the Asian country and sent shock waves of fear across the globe.
“Why did the mainstream media fall in love with the Chinese again and think they are telling the truth about this illness?” Cramer asked on Twitter.
When one user asked Cramer which media outlets he was referring to, Cramer replied: “the ones who don’t say that China has a history of lying..” The market analyst also agreed with another Twitter user who tweeted, “Communist China has been exploiting the habitual mutual trust of western people to manipulate public opinions.”
The Chinese government has restricted travel for more than 33 million Chinese citizens since news of the pathogen outbreak was first released earlier this week. The Centers for Disease Control confirmed that they are monitoring 63 patients in the United States and confirmed that a Chicago woman and a Washington state man have tested positive for the virus.
