(Natural News) The world’s supply chain of critical electronics components is facing a catastrophic disruption as China enforces a draconian crackdown in the Wuhan region to contain the accelerating coronavirus outbreak.

Yahoo News Taiwan is now reporting the details, revealing a long list of key component manufacturers that reside in the Wuhan area where the coronavirus outbreak appears to be uncontrolled and spreading quickly.

As Yahoo News reports, many Taiwan component manufacturers operate factories in China, and those factories are heavily concentrated in the Wuhan area where transportation has now ground to a halt due to extreme quarantine efforts.

From the Yahoo News story: (translated from Chinese)

Japan will undoubtedly delay production capacity of the entire supply chain and even face a “broken chain” crisis… traffic in and out of Wuhan is regulated, making the industry worried that “the production line is not manpowered enough to keep out of existing stocks”, and the electronics industry is facing a “broken chain” Dilemma.

Here’s an overview of just how important the Wuhan region is to electronics component manufacturing on a global scale. From the story:

Wuhan can be said to be a major city for the development of science and technology in the mainland. For example, BOE, Huaxing Optoelectronics, and Tianma, the two largest panel manufacturers in the mainland, have settled in the local area. Continental memory companies such as Wuhan Changjiang Storage, Wuhan Xinxin, and Zhaoyi Innovation are important local companies. Hubei Province is also the production base of Taiwan’s PCB factories, including Taiwan Optoelectronics, Xinxing, Jianding, Nanzi Electric, and Dingying. All of them have factories in Hubei. Although the factory is not located in Wuhan, the entire Hubei province is currently in chaotic transportation, which affects the supply after the year. Chain, electronics companies are concerned about the subsequent supply situation.


Industry insiders pointed out that PCB is the “mother of electronics industry” and is an indispensable key component of all electronic products. It is responsible for fixing electronic parts and providing current connections to parts, which directly affects the reliability and performance of electronic products. If the PCB factory in Taiwan and the Hubei factory are obstructed, it will affect the nerves of the global electronics industry.

In other words, the supply chain crisis caused by the quarantine in Wuhan — not the virus itself, but the quarantine effects — will have global ramifications and large-scale economic consequences.

Global economic consequences just starting to be realized

“The epidemic that originated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan and spread across the country is expected to hit China’s economic growth, as the panic has weighed on tourism, consumption, and manufacturing,” reports The Epoch Times. TET also reports:

The coronavirus outbreak comes as China’s economy is already growing at its slowest pace in nearly three decades. The U.S.–China trade war took a toll on the country’s exports in 2019. And China’s economic troubles may be more severe than official data indicates, according to experts.

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is being compared to Chernobyl.

“If the panic continues until April or May, it will have an ‘enormous effect’ on the Chinese economy this year,” China expert Gordon Chang told The Epoch Times. “If this isn’t brought under control quickly, you’ll have factories leaving China,” he added.

Here’s a map of the current spread of the pandemic in Asia, mostly affecting mainland China:

Nobody is yet factoring all this into the U.S. stock market, of course, since “pandemic denialism” is far easier to believe than economic reality.

That’s why the cover-up is well under way, both in China and the United States. To find out why, listen to this important podcast:

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
