Airports, stadiums, and many workplaces are near empty. Even churches are cancelling services. The church I attend has as well.
Fear of the corona virus is indeed having the same effect on society that the Second Signpost would with its shortages of expensive gasoline and breaks in the supply chain due to fuel and electricity shortages.
Indeed, fear of the corona virus will likely only intensify what the Second Signpost will do to society across the world. The corona virus fear will create breaks in the economy, but the Second Signpost could make them deeper and longer lasting.
It’s being called “coronapocalypse” on social media. Today, it seems there is a change in the way western society is conducting itself. A signal is that US President Trump has declared a national emergency due to the corona virus epidemic.
Covid-19 is emerging as a major epidemic in the United States. South Korea, Italy, and Iran are ahead of the US in the curve, but the US is catching up.
From this report we hear that the cases in Iran continue to climb. The epidemic there could be a tell-tale sign that Iranian officials regularly visit China. They may have unknowingly brought it back to Iran them back in January.
This is only speculation on my part, but my belief that the time of the Second Signpost is close gives me a different take on the contagion in Iran: it is very possible that since this corona virus outbreak has come at a very inopportune time for the IRGC to launch the Second Signpost, they will ride it out and wait for the contagion to subside. And to do that as quickly as possible, there is a chance that since most of the IRGC troops are young, that they purposely exposed themselves to it, to get over it quickly, but as a consequence also gave it to their families.
The number of reported cases is likely very underreported.
Stay tuned. It’s Day 65. Stay alert.
