We have a pneumonia epidemic caused by a coronavirus with many deaths and there is evidence of human-to-human transmission.
“Shanghai Disneyland shut down, hospitals pleaded for help, France reported three cases and the youngest victim so far was identified as a 36-year-old man in central China. Chinese health authorities reported at least 15 new deaths in one day, raising the death toll to 41 — all in China” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/24/world/asia/china-coronavirus.html

this is fulfilling prophecy

This is the latest from CNN…
“Hong Kong / London (CNN Business)Global stock markets plummeted for a seventh consecutive day on Friday as the coronavirus continued to spread, increasing fears that the epidemic will wipe out corporate profits and push some of the world’s biggest economies into recession.
China’s Shanghai Composite (SHCOMP) closed down 3.7%, bringing losses for the week to 5.6%, the index’s worst performance since April 2019. Japan’s Nikkei (N225) ended down 3.7% and benchmark indexes in Australia and South Korea both shed 3.3%.
European stocks suffered even greater losses, with Germany’s DAX (DAX) dropping as much as 5% in early trading and London’s FTSE 100 (UKX) shedding 4.4%. In Italy, where 17 people have now died as a result of the virus, the benchmark FTSE MIB index was down nearly 4%.
US stock futures were also sharply lower Friday, suggesting that the country’s three main indexes will resume their plunge after a sharp sell-off on Thursday during which the Dow suffered its worst ever points loss, dropping 1,191 points, or 4.4%. The S&P 500 suffered a similar fall and has slid more than 10% from its recent peak….
The corporate warnings paint a dire picture of the effect that the coronavirus is having on some of the world’s biggest economies. Growth in China is expected to slow significantly, and other economies such as Japan and Germany could slide into recession as the outbreak compounds weakness caused by factors including the trade war between the United States and China.
If the coronavirus outbreak becomes a global pandemic, $1 trillion could be wiped off the world economy, with recessions in the United States and the eurozone, according to economists at Oxford Economics. ”

Now not just Italy but its export goods are being affected..
“Making things more complicated is a lack of knowledge about the virus’s true risks and whether it is spread, for example, through exported goods.
Industry groups and policymakers have signaled incidents of importers of Italian goods in other EU countries seeking additional certification that the goods are virus-free.
The Coldiretti agricultural lobby on Wednesday said that “unjustified documentation” had been requested from importers of aged cheese in Greece, lettuce sent to Poland and fruit to Kuwait, while shipments of Italian-grown apples are blocked at the border with Ukraine.
Coldiretti also said its producers had reported “numerous cancellations without good reasons that struck an entire range of ‘Made in Italy’ foodstuffs, from wine to cured meats.’’….https://abcnews.go.com/Travel/wireStory/virus-outbreak-hits-weakened-italian-economy-hurts-69451678

Yet every day, more die from ONE aspirin….
Worse: thousands die FROM THIRST! (or hunger).
and the epidemics of diabetes (and heart disease) (both preventable) ?
Promoted, encouraged, growing …. far far worse than viruses all.
