China Says There’s a New Disease That’s Even Deadlier Than COVID

China’s embassy in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan has put out a statement warning of an “unknown pneumonia” that is reportedly even deadlier than the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, the South China Morning Post reports.
“The death rate of this disease is much higher than the novel coronavirus,” read the warning to Chinese citizens in Kazakhstan, as quoted by the SCMP. “The country’s health departments are conducting comparative research into the pneumonia virus, but have yet to identify the virus.”
Pneumonia is an infection of either one or both lungs and is caused by either bacteria, viruses or fungi. The inflammation can make it difficult to breathe and in some extreme cases can be life-threatening.
The statement doesn’t include any details and doesn’t elaborate on the nature of the virus. COVID-19 has also been shown to cause severe pneumonia in both lungs for some patients.
Local media have been reporting a worrying uptick in pneumonia cases in a number of Kazakh cities since mid-June, as the SCMP reports, with as many as 500 reported patients across three locations, 30 of whom are in critical condition. Officials and the media in Kazakhstan, according to the SCMP, are saying the cases are just regular pneumonia.

That’s just great.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

No disease is deadlier than greed, especially American style.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

Because it’s just not that deadly. It’s not smallpox or the plague or scarlet fever or cholera or polio. This looks like fearmongering to me. Sometimes, I think someone is running an experiment on Americans just to see how far they can push us.
