‘Mysterious’ Pneumonia Outbreaks Reported in China

News reports of outbreaks of a bacterial respiratory illness known as mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MPP) in northern China began to emerge in October 2023. The outbreaks, primarily among children, have been attributed by public health professionals to “declining immunity levels” in people as a result of “preventive measures” taken in over the past three years against the spread of pathogens that cause respiratory diseases such as COVID-19, as well as the overuse of antibiotics, which has contributed to the emergence of new bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.1 2 3 4

Citing Dr. Li Tongzeng, an infectious disease physician at Beijing You’an Hospital, the Global Times reported:

[B]efore the COVID-19 pandemic, a relatively large outbreak of mycoplasma pneumoniae infections would occur every three to seven years. In the past three years, the incidence of respiratory diseases has decreased due to pandemic prevention and control measures. However, this situation may lead to insufficient immunity, especially for children.2

As Chinese government policies aimed at controlling the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus were relaxed and children who had been isolated for long periods of time returned to normal school attendance in September 2023, there was a marked increase in the number of children treated for mycoplasma pneumoniae infections. This increase continued through the first week of October.2

In mid-October, Dr. Li predicted that the number of mycoplasma pneumoniae infections in China this year may surpass those in the previous three years.2

WHO Seeks Clarification from China About MPP

It now appears that Dr. Li’s prediction may well prove to be accurate. On Nov. 21, 2023, a global infectious disease surveillance system known as ProMED issued the following statement:

With the outbreak of pneumonia in China, children’s hospitals in Beijing, Liaoning and other places were overwhelmed with sick children, and schools and classes were on the verge of suspension. Parents questioned whether the authorities were covering up the epidemic.5

ProMED reported that the children diagnosed with MPP are not displaying symptoms such as coughing, but that they do have high fevers and many of them develop abnormal growths (nodules) in their lungs. ProMED added that some school classes are being cancelled and that teachers are also being diagnosed with MPP.5

The reporting by ProMED came after a press conference held by representatives of China’s National Health Commission on Nov. 13 confirming a surge in the incidence of respiratory diseases in the country, including MPP.6

On Nov. 22, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially requested from the Chinese government detailed epidemiologic and clinical information on the rise of respiratory illnesses and laboratory results involving the reported clusters of MPP in children in China.6

In a public statement, the WHO said that, while it awaits information from the Chinese government, it recommends to the people of China that they “follow measures to reduce the risk of respiratory illness.” These measures include “recommended vaccination; keeping distance from people who are ill; staying home when ill; getting tested and medical care as needed; wearing masks as appropriate; ensuring good ventilation and regular hand-washing.”6

Susceptibility to MPP and Other Diseases May Be Due to “Immunity Debt”

Ironically, it was precisely some of these recommendations during the COVID pandemic—specifically those encouraging isolation and distancing—that may have made the Chinese population (notably children) more susceptible to diseases such as MPP in the first place. While requiring isolation and social distancing may have helped lower exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it also lowered exposure to other less harmful pathogens encountered in normal life, thus eliminating a process that serves to exercise and strengthen individual immune systems to better defend against diseases such as MPP.

Michael Osterholm, PhD, MPH, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), has suggested that the so-called “immunity debt theory” could explain the spike in respiratory illnesses such as MPP in China. According to a recent article in Fortune, some experts say that immunity debt is…

… the price society must pay for adhering to pandemic precautions and, thus, receiving less exposure to other viruses. It results, they say, in a delayed surge in non-pandemic viruses after mitigation efforts are abandoned.7

Some Hint MPP Could Be COVID-like Health Crisis in the Making

The WHO’s request for more information about the MPP outbreaks in China has given international attention to this public health issue and sparked concern that the Chinese government may be minimizing the severity of the outbreaks and block public access to information about them, as it did in October-December 2019 with the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 causing COVID-19 disease symptoms.8 9

Articles are now appearing regularly in newspapers and magazines around the world about the MPP outbreaks and there is some early speculation that MPP could be the next COVID. The media appears to be doing all it can to help fuel such conjecture by using of words like “mysterious” and “mystery” to describe the outbreaks and words like “alarms” and “alarm bells” to describe how the WHO feels about the situation.7 10 11 12 13 14

Stuart Ray, MD, vice chair of medicine for data integrity and analytics at Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Medicine, called the MPP infections “concerning.” He said:

[I]t’s not so out of the ordinary that we should presume this is due to a new pathogen. We can hope that authorities there will evaluate rapidly, take appropriate steps for mitigating spread, and be forthcoming about the nature and severity of the epidemic.7

Implying that the Chinese government may be engaged in a cover up with regard to the MPP outbreaks, United States’ ambassador to Japan, Rahm Emanuel, said:

China’s recent pneumonia outbreak raises serious questions, and the World Health Organization is asking them. It’s time to abandon COVID deception and delays as transparent and timely information saves lives.15

A recent article in Newsweek featured the following headline: “China’s Raging Pneumonia Outbreak – Is it COVID All Over Again?”16

It’s starting to feel like the powers that be may be preparing the public to accept another international public health emergency declaration—a pandemic, or at least a sizeable epidemic. Any good excuse to enable governments to gain more control over people’s lives, media outlets to expand their readership by spreading fear, and drug companies to earn quick, easy and massive profits marketing “medical countermeasure” products to global populations.

  1. “Mysterious” only proves that these medical clowns called doctors and researchers don’t know much of anything. The term mysterious is used to incite fear and panic. Ignore anything coming from China.

  2. Most providers in the US are still not aware of the importance of vitamin D3 in boosting the immune system. Levels should be checked and should be supplemented if not in the normal range of 55-100.

    1. I agree with you most providers were not taught about the role of vitamin D3. I try to go out for a walk almost daily to get vitamin from the sunlight. Supplements are needed if not exposed to sunlight enough. And it depends on skin pigmentation.

    2. Richard, what is ‘a provider’? Pharma product pimps, for sale. So sorry, that’s not a profitable suggestion and therefore will not be promoted by the medical industrial complex. You’ll need something patented. Thanks for playing, try again.

  3. This is not just happening in China. It is occurring throughout the whole world because people were foolish enough to listen to the wrong sources of information. When the world was warned of what Bill Gates and his cronies were planning in 2017 and it panned out in 2020, why were there so few of us who took heed and knew immediately what was taking place? I can only shake my head at the stupid and ignorant mentality of the majority, of the world, that fell down this rabbit hole.

  4. If these reports are even true, it would be super if someone could venture an educated hypothesis into what poison (toxin) these kids were exposed to that would cause nodules in the lungs. I doubt it was a pathogen, a.k.a. “germ.”

  5. Chinese schoolchildren have recently been given the same nasal spray “vaccine” as UK children. This spray is of course toxic, and meant to, causing flu like symptoms and resipratory issues. Lo and behold! Weren’t we just warned that a new “virus” variant, a specially engineered one, is emerging, targeting (!) children (and not adults, smartie?), to isolate them from each other through online learning at home! Result: parents are again scared for a “new virus” and bowing to the repression repetition. Or are they finally going to comprehend that “virus” = TOXINS? Intended poisoning?

    1. We’re going to need better genetically modified mosquitoes to counter this! That’s it, that’s the ticket! Eating bugs is also known to have mysterious benefits in this regard. Who’s still buying this and why the hell should we care what’s happening in China or listen to their lapdog WHO propagandists? To hell with the lot of them. We will not comply.

  6. As Catryna said, this is happening everywhere. I work with children birth to age 3, and I have never seen them so sick. I myself have never been so sick so often. I just got out of the hospital with a virus that attacked my inner ear, and I am still recovering. I pray this can be reversed at some point.

    1. Shedding. The children and their parents have become toxic pathogen production factories. Ear infections are a telltale sign of homeostatic disruption brought on by vaccination and vaccination related shedding side effects. If you want to reverse the trend, never participate in vaccinating another human being as long as you live, avoid genetically modified foods, and recommend to parents they keep their children away from excess sugar and pesticides. Come on people, it’s not rocket science.

  7. Meanwhile, a major outbreak of explosivitis americana has afflicted a small east Mediterranean territory know as Gaza with some overspill to the West Bank. It infects men, women and children but with an emphasis on children. The symptoms are severe injury or instant death at the 40% rate. Immunisation is not readily available but immediate isolation from the source can drastically reduce contagion.

    1. What do Americans have to do with Palestinians and Israelies ongoing civil war which dates back to before the time of Christ, long before America was even conceived? America should not be involved, financially or emotionally. In other less sophomoric news related to this issue… Turns out there’s oil in them thar Gaza hills! The corporate players are lined up and ready, and that alignment was finalized right about the time this event lit up. The humans in the line of fire as well as the political spin, that’s just collateral damage on the way to commandeering a new liquid gold supply, also double dipping and pandering for subsidies along the way. True story. Check out Wold Affairs Brief with Joel Skousen and get off the propaganda train. Don’t forget to grab a fresh burkha so your wife can avoid stoning as you accompany her to the grocery store. If the crusades are to return, you are advised to wear the red cross if you know what’s good for you.

  8. Those of us watching have seen this movie before. I’m sure that there would be less disease and suffering in the world today, if people would stay away from toxic medicines and vaccines. And you can’t convince some of the drug lovers to look for better health treatments elsewhere.

  9. “Boy in a bubble syndrome.” When the white man came to North America tens of thousands of natives died of diseases that were no more than a mild inconvenience to the Europeans. A couple years of Covid isolation and killing every germ in your environment means you were not exposed to your usual load of germs and bacteria and so your immune system is low and a mild inconvenience turns into something more severe.

    1. Sure. That, and having a destroyed immune system from covid vaccines. But yeah, good points. This is an interesting new language spin; ‘declining immunization levels’. But I thought people whom wore masks were subjected to insanely high pathogen exposure from the petri dishes they kept on their face… And they had additional ‘disease protection’ from those vaccines… Something is not adding up…

      Whatever China or the WHO recommends, simply do the opposite. You’ll be fine.
