A new mysterious and deadly virus has in just three weeks spread to five countries including the U.S. as it has infected hundreds of people and killed several.
What’s reported as a mysterious outbreak in Wuhan, China, caused dozens of people to fall sick there with pneumonia, which is a serious respiratory infection. And what sets this outbreak apart is that its caused by a yet-to-be-identified pathogen.
But the outbreak has been linked to a food market, where vendors peddle seafood and animals, such as birds and rabbits.
Fast forward from three weeks ago to now, and the virus has leaped to 300 people in at least five other countries with it spreading from person to person. Which this could mean a new disease has made the leap across species, from animals to humans.
The details are so far reminiscent of the SARS scare in the early 2000s.
When SARS, a deadly respiratory virus, was first discovered in China in 2003, when it jumped from civet cats to humans. It then spread to two dozen countries and eventually killed 774 people and infected more than 8,000.
This new unknown virus has spread to several countries now including the US.
Where a 30-something year old man, a resident of Washington state, tested positive for the virus after being hospitalized with pneumonia according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The patient had recently traveled to Wuhan, China — the epicenter of the outbreak — and returned to Seattle. He showed no signs of sickness when re-entering the US.
The president of EcoHealth Alliance, a US global health research organization working in China, described the appearance of an infected person in the US to mean this disease is on the cusp of becoming a pandemic, just like SARS in 2003.
It’s unusual to get health care worker infections in outbreaks, but at least 15 health care workers have been infected thus far, which is a sign of alarm.
For when that happens it indicates that the virus may be easily transmitted and this is a very serious outbreak with the potential for widespread transmission.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have implemented screening of passengers arriving from Wuhan, China, in airports at Los Angeles International, San Francisco International, New York JFK, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International, and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 6) foretell that pestilence will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the coming end of this age of grace.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all the things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy, that comes upon the world of disobedience. As the born again Church is not appointed unto wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:10) but instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
