Covid-19’s exponential spread across the world continues unabated, except in China, where the rate of officially reported new cases has slowed dramatically. At the same time, cases in India are on the rise. Might India be the next big outbreak location? Time will tell. Meanwhile, this honey badger of a virus shows that it “just don’t care” who you are. We are getting more reports of young & healthy people getting hit hard. Rich, famous, royal, powerful — it doesn’t matter, all socioeconomic strata are coming down with it. We’re also getting reports that social distancing, PPE and good hygiene practices really do make a big difference — so keep up your efforts, folks! At the end of today’s video, Chris mentions our book Prosper! and its relevance to the world era we’re entering into. More information on the book, which is a great read for anyone currently under home lockdown, can be found here:

Chris Martenson,
You stated about 3% kill rate form the Coronavirus in your March 23, 2020 update. I called you wrong when you were quoting 1-2% kill rate and I guess I have to straighten you out again. I’m just a farmer and you’re a scientist…go figure eh? I appreciate what you’re doing but please don’t feed us the same BS that we are getting from the main street media. If you can’t back up your facts or produce the formula that produces 1% or 3% please don’t try to pass numbers fed to us by the criminal CDC or our fair leader that is trying to hold off panic in America, unless you have facts to back up your statements.
I took my numbers from worldometers and these particular numbers were taken from March 23, 2020.
Just using the number of total dead on March 23 as compared to the total number of cases on that day for 10 countries…. Iran, South Korea, Italy, USA, Spain, UK, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium and France, the kill rate is 7.5% (which is a lowered number because it might take 2 or 3 weeks for the confirmed cases to die). That 7.5% could easily be 15% or even more, we don’t know because we don’t know how many light cases there are. It wouldn’t hurt for you to explain this to folks you’re trying to educate because we have a bunch of people in the world that think this thing is not serious.
I had to call my snowflake daughter on her sources the other day. WAPO was stating that the virus was doubling every 3 days and if it continued along that track, 100,000,000 would be infected worldwide by May. I ran the numbers and they should have said 5 billion would be infected by May 1st. Only off by 50 times! good job WAPO and thanks for giving me the opportunity to prove to my daughter what a fake news source you are. Don’t be like WAPO Chris. Be safe but please be honest, we can take it. I’d rather know the truth then walk blindly into a buzz saw and so would everyone else.
