UK Coronavirus Pandemic WARNING! Prepare for Covid-19 Outbreaks Now! Sheffield! Don't Ignore! / Sheffield Local News

Sheffield Britains fifth largest city like the rest of Britain's big cities is in the calm before the Coronavirus storm stage. Where barely a couple of weeks from now everything isa likely to change when Corona viral outbreaks start taking place across the UK. Because unfortunately the NHS is barely able to cope with the regular winter flu let alone a strain that is 100 times as deadly so the NHS will soon be overwhelmed with seriously ill patients requiring intensive care, and it won't take more than a dozen such patients to tip the healthcare systems in each of Britain's big cities such as Sheffield, unable to cope with even small volumes of Coronavirus ill where the only response to 111 calls will be for patients to self quarantine themselves at home as hospitals become hotbeds for the transmission of the virus, so places definitely to steer clear of to avoid becoming infected.

Warning Coronavirus Being Spread by Chinese Students, Halt China Flights NOW! / Sheffield Local News

The primary conduit for the spread of the Coronavirus outside of China are Chinese people (mostly students) who traveled out of China during the past few weeks, including several tens of thousands from the Wuhan epicentre of the outbreak. So it should not come as much of a surprise that the first declared infection in the UK is from a Chinese student at York University who has sent authorities scrambling to investigate all contacts that the student had as potential sources for further outbreaks of this deadly coronavirus.

Warning China Coronavirus Infections Spread vs Forecast Pandemic Update / Sheffield Local News

The Coronavirus continues it's exponential spread across China, this despite Chinese state propaganda peddling a line of measures taken especially earlier in the month having limited the spread of the virus that is not being born out by data released that on a daily basis shows the spread is exponential to across the whole of China and likely neighbouring nations.

My analysis and concluding forecast of 28th January based on data up until the 27th of January utilised trend analysis to forecast that the Coronavirus could infect over 1 million people by the end of February 2020, which given the apparent fatality rate of 3.5% at the time converted into an death toll of at least 35,000. Which if it transpired would be far worse than the 2002-2003 SARS pandemic that infected 8,098 over 8 months resulting in 774 deaths, and thus the Coronavirus would have significant economic and market consequences.

WARNING CoronaVirus Pandemic 2020, Deaths Forecast and Economic Consequences / Sheffield Local News

One of the worst places for a pandemic to begin is from within a totalitarian state as local party minions tend to be too scared to pass bad news up the chain of command, and obediently wait on orders from leaders residing many hundreds of miles away, by which time it's too late where virus's are concerned, and so it has been with the Corona virus outbreak in China. Don't be fooled by Chinese state propaganda of panic building of hospitals, chinese communist party bureaucracy ensures that it is already too late! The Corona virus has spread throughout China!

I am sure you have all seen news footage of deserted Wuhan streets. Though none of the news reporters appear to have put 2 and 2 together and worked out the reason why the streets are empty is because most of the people living there have already FLED the city, taking their Corona virus infections with them! TOO LATE, OUT OF CONTROL!

Police Arrest Sheffield Tree Protester on Meersbrook Park Road. The Star Reports Officer Injury / Sheffield Local News

The Sheffield city council and it's contractor Amey remain determined to fell Sheffield's biggest trees apparently because the councilors signed a contract that contained a clause that x number of trees would be felled by y date, and so virtually every working day sees hundreds of Sheffielders out on the streets attempting to defend Sheffield's remaining big trees after near 6,000 have already been felled to date with tens of thousand of people supporting the campaign across several facebook groups.

Today saw witness to the Police arresting a tree protestor on Meersbrook Park Road for allegedly obstructing the highway.

However. that is not the whole story for the mainstream media "The Sheffield Star" is painting a picture of the police officer(s) being subjected to an angry mob and being assaulted and injured!

"A man has been arrested today for allegedly attacking a police officer during a protest over tree felling on a Sheffield street."

"Tempers reportedly flared between a group of protesters and police in Meersbrook Park Road, Meersbrook, at 12.20pm."

"The officer suffered minor injuries during the incident which did not require hospital treatment."

However, this does not match video evidence of what actually happened and its aftermath. For one thing the protestors were out numbered by the HiViz Amey Security who appeared itching to intervene, i.e. kept prompting the police officers so that they could be allowed to more forcible intervene.

Also the police officer was clearly NOT injured by any stretch of the imagination and therefore the Sheffield Star in my opinion is reporting FAKE NEWS. Anyway you can watch the video and make up your own minds on whether or not the Police officer was injured as The Star reports.

And here are a few stills from the video:

The Real LORAX and Once-ler's of Sheffield's Street Trees Felling's / Sheffield Local Issues

I am sure many will have watched the LORAX movie with their children that acts as a warning of what can go wrong when corporate greed runs rampant resulting in the destruction of the environment. Unfortunately the people of Sheffield find themselves in a similar predicament as thousands of street trees are being felled by a corporate Once-ler giant named AMEY. In response to which many of Sheffield's ordinary citizens have turned into real life LORAX who speak for Sheffield's street trees. Against whom are martialed the forces of the establishment, a Labour controlled city council and it's 2.2 billion PFI contractor Amey. Where we have been increasingly witnessing the deployment of measures on the streets that go far beyond the realms of what one would expect from a British local city council, instead which resembles private militias roaming the streets along with their green vested evidence gatherers akin to something out of an eastern european dictatorship.

So here is a window into the world of the REAL LORAX, Once-lers and Thneedville Sheffield.

The Felling of Iconic Shefffield Ash Tree 'Milly' on Millhouses Lane / Sheffield Local Issues

For the past 3 months the Tree campaigners of the Millhouses area of Sheffield have put up a brave effort at attempting to save Millhouses Lane's big Ash tree 'Milly' that saw many tree campaigners out from dawn until dusk protecting the tree in all weathers, from late summer, to autumn right through to the bitter cold of late November into mid December. First came the cropping of 10 days ago that saw Amey / Acorn take street overhanging branches, but still the tree lived on, and so did the campaigners continue to brave freezing temperatures. Unfortunately on 20th December, Amey / Acorn came in the very early hours of the morning at around 4.30am to complete the felling of Milly. Which now stands no more, just a mere stump remains where once a mighty Ash tree once stood.

Here is the story of Milly's life of its last four weeks from a big strong Ash tree, to a heavily pruned half tree and finally into the last few hours that saw Milly's untimely demise.

Sheffield Abbeydale Park Rise Christmas Lights Show the Night Before Amey Grinch Cut Them Down /

The Labour controlled Sheffield City Council's 'streets ahead' PFI contractor Amey has deployed increased tree felling / security resources at the start of this week in an attempt to fell hundreds of trees before the end of this year by deploying what resembles an army of green capped hi vis jacketed security personnel to accompany felling crews that tend to far out number the protestors standing beside street trees in freezing temperatures across dozens of Sheffield's streets. The catalyst for this weeks escalation is the looming deadline contained within the PFI contract to fell 6,000 of Sheffield's big street trees by the end of 2017 (out of an estimated total of 36,000).

Thursday saw the Amey personnel descend upon the cherry tree lined Sheffield suburban street, Abbeydale Park Rise, populated by at least 60 Cherry Trees which each Christmas has virtually every tree covered in Christmas lights as is the case for this year. With security personnel and felling crews having descended upon the narrow street towards meeting Amey's 6k street trees felling quota as the following video illustrates:

Will Stripping Streets of ALL their Trees Crash Sheffield House Prices? / Sheffield Local Issues

Sheffield City Council's Streets Ahead PFI Contract with the Spanish Ferrovial family owned multinational Amey apparently also means that many of the Sheffield's tree lined suburbs are being stripped of virtually all of their big trees that have taken over 100 years to grow to their current house prices boosting splendour.

The big question is does felling of these community assets valued at approx 50k each (CAVAT method) also mean that the properties on these streets are also being felled?

We'll here's an example of what happened to one tree lined Sheffield street over the course of a couple of months during 2017 that was stripped of ALL of its street trees so you can make you your own minds up whether this street is now more or less appealing to prospective home buyers.

Upside Down Car Hanging off a Peeling Road Sculpture, Tinsley Sheffield

Drive down to the Tinsley area of Sheffield and you may be in for a surprise scence, one of a car literally hanging upside down on a pealed roll way. Yes it's difficult to imagine so see the video and the still images of what a real car hanging off a pealed road surface looks like. Though this sculpture is not going to hang around for long so if you want to see it be quick, cos likely it will be gone within days.

Sheffield City Council to FELL Iconic Chelsea Road Elm Tree / Sheffield Local Issues

The Labour run Sheffield city council has decided to fell Sheffield's best street tree, the Chelsea Road Elm that had been awarded England's second best tree of the year award by the Woodland Trust. This is despite repeated promises that it would not be felled, but with Amey's initial tree felling tranche of felling 6000 street trees nearing completion, so now those trees that previously had been deemed to have been saved are now set to be felled.

And this comes literally days after Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O'Mara told constituents that he had been told it would NOT be felled. Instead the Council warns that the tree would be cut down next summer. However a huge skip has appeared next to Elm tree and signs have gone up on Chelsea road that suggest the felling could begin barely 3 days from now, the 12th of September 2017.

The Chelsea Road Elm Tree had become the symbol behind which thousands of Sheffielders had campaigned to halt the wholesale deforestation of Sheffield's street trees, loss of capital value averaging at 60,000 per large mature tree felled, that has now been stripped from hundreds of Sheffield's trees, which inevitably will convert into loss of housing valuations of not those streets where trees have been felled but the whole of city has been devalued, now having become infamous for it;s council cutting down thousands of its best street trees.

Some stills from the video:

Signs that the felling may be imminent are a large skip having appeared next to the elm tree.

The road is to be closed to vehicles on the 12th of September

The Chelsea Road Elm Tree has recieved much mainstream media attention that includes BBC Look North and Calander News.
