There are many different layers in QMDJ chart interpretation, and while we can see major health issues affecting the East in Zhen (spreading fast, given the character of Thunder trigram), we can also see other aspects of this situation.
If I may use the word ‘loud’ in this context, the combination of chart components in Zhen is certainly speaking volumes.
When #5 goes anywhere, it travels accompanied by the fanfares. It is like Emperor, followed by his ministers, security, servants, cooks etc. arriving into a province to check what is going on.
In Zhen palace #5 Lian Zhen is being countered, and countering authority, as we know, could be consequential. At the same time, presence of Sky deity, points to the elites of the province being actively involved (Open (Metal)) in the situation. The relationship between the #5 and the Sky is unfriendly (not openly hostile though), and this latent stand off is exacerbated by the attacking force of the hidden deity Tiger.
I wonder if there is some sort of a power play going on at the background we hear nothing about? One can only guess.
My assumption is that this current health emergency may lead to social unrest in the Wuhan, possibly spilling over into neighboring regions.
