Researchers: CDC ignoring science, ‘harming children’ with its fear-driven guidance on schools

A team of scientists slammed the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday for misinterpreting their research and harming children by hamstringing schools with strict reopening guidelines.

What are the details?

In a blistering op-ed, published in USA Today, the researchers unequivocally declared, “Keeping schools closed or even partially closed, based on what we know now is unwarranted, is harming children, and has become a human rights issue.”

They argued that despite the Biden administration’s repeated promise to trust the science, the CDC was actually ignoring the science and operating from a position of unreasoning fear.

“The recent school reopening guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is an example of fears influencing and resulting in misinterpretation of science and harmful policy,” the researchers wrote. “In the United States, about half of schools are either in person or a hybrid. President Joe Biden ran on a campaign indicating that science and data would guide his policy. As we approach the anniversary of the first COVID-19 shut down, this approach is needed more than ever, especially when it comes to schools.”

The CDC, though acknowledging in its guidance that “it is critical for schools to open as safely and as soon as possible, and remain open,” has consistently issued needlessly stringent guidelines that ultimately cripple schools’ ability to reopen. Many schools in an effort to remain in compliance find themselves wanting in terms of supplies or out of capacity due to social distancing.

The CDC even cites one of the scientist’s research on virus transmission in Wisconsin schools, the scientists noted, yet it refuses to “take that data and new analyses from that data set into account.”

“Here are the facts,” the scientists state. “First, children are not at significant risk of poor outcomes from COVID-19 … Second, viral spread is minimal in schools with appropriate safety precautions … Third, no science supports mandating 6 feet of distance with children wearing masks … Fourth, despite fearmongering regarding variants in America, we have not seen evidence that variants are spreading through in-person schools.

“States are getting the message” on how to safely reopen without unnecessarily restrictive mitigation measures, they continue, “Why hasn’t the CDC?”

What else?

The researchers made sure to mention that school closures carry with them many dangerous short-term and long-term consequences. Those consequences include the upending of social development in younger children, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as the inflicting of mental and psychological damage.

“We are observing a significant psychological epidemic in children with depression and anxiety due to the isolation associated with school closure, with suicidal behaviors,” they grimly stated.

That is not even to mention the potentially millions of students who are now “missing” from school systems as a result of prolonged school closures.

“We must act for children,” the scientists conclude. “And the science shows we can safely open our schools now for full-time (nonhybrid) learning and keep them open.”

Intelwars Millions of missing student Missing students school closures School freedom Students disappear

Prolonged school closures have reportedly resulted in millions of students going ‘missing’ from school systems

An eye-popping number of students have reportedly gone “missing” from public school systems around the country amid prolonged school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, ABC News determined in a shocking new report published Tuesday.

The news, which serves as yet another sad reminder of the unintended injury caused by lengthy and exorbitant shutdown policies, is poised to add fuel to the fiery debate over reopening schools happening now in countless American communities.

“A notable number of students seem to have simply fallen off the grid, not showing up for online or in-person instruction, their whereabouts unknown by school officials,” the report stated, adding that the dilemma has left experts and educators scrambling to find the students and come up with policies to buck the dangerous trend.

The report made mention of a recent study put forward by Bellwether Education Partners, a nonprofit focused on underserved communities, which estimates that as many as 3 million of America’s “most educationally marginalized students in the country” have “functionally disappeared” since last March, when the pandemic first forced schools to close. The group claims to have arrived at its estimate by making projections based upon the “percentage of at-risk groups not in school, based on media reports and available data.”

In its report, ABC News gave credence to the estimate, though it stopped short of explicitly confirming it. Nevertheless, after contacting officials from school systems in all 50 states, the outlet determined that many states who tracked such information confirmed they have seen a “significant decline in their enrollment numbers,” while many other states “reported they have thousands of missing students.”

Here are a few of the examples cited in the report:

  • “In Michigan, K-12 enrollment decreased this fall by some 53,000 students out of about 1.5 million students.”
  • “In Dallas, Texas, which was home to approximately 153,000 students last year, there are about 9,000 high-schoolers, 2,000 middle-schoolers, and 1,000 elementary school students unaccounted for.”
  • “In Florida, officials are trying to determine the whereabouts of nearly 88,000 students who were expected for the 2020-’21 academic year and failed to show up in the fall.”

The report noted that students can go missing for a variety of reasons. Students from low-income families, in particular, may not have the access to technology needed to participate in distance learning. It could also be that the economic downturn that resulted from the pandemic caused poorer students to be more at risk of missing school.

In any case, the tragic revelations confirm some of the fears many critics of school closures have expressed for the better part of a year; namely, that with schools closed indefinitely, students would inevitably be left behind.

Bailout Biden coronavirus bill Federal workers Intelwars Paid leave school closures

Biden’s COVID bill offers up to $21K in paid leave to federal workers whose kids are at home due to school closures

A paid leave perk buried deep in President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package offers to pay federal government employees to stay home if at least one of their children is in attendance at a school that has not returned to full-time in-person operation.

The provision, exclusive to federal workers, is sure to draw ire from conservatives as the albatross 591-page document known as the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021” advances through Congress. The bill has been roundly criticized by Republicans as wasteful and filled with “bailouts, pork, and unrelated policy changes” since its introduction in the House last Friday.

The measure is supported by the “Emergency Federal Employee Leave Fund,” which is outlined on page 305 of the House version of the bill. Under the new legislation, $570 million set to be deposited into the fund is designed to assist federal workers caring for themselves or others “unable to work” due of the pandemic.

Among those eligible for the enhanced paid leave are those federal workers who are “caring for a son or daughter” out of school due to COVID-19 precautions.

What’s more is that the school doesn’t need to be completely closed to in-person instruction in order for the worker to receive the paid leave benefit. Rather, the school merely needs to “make optional” any type of instruction other than full-time, in person instruction. Here’s what the bill’s text says, specifically:

Amounts in the Fund shall be available for payment to an agency for the use of paid leave by any employee of the agency who is unable to work because the employee … is caring for a son or daughter of such employee if the school or place of care of the son or daughter has been closed, if the school of such son or daughter requires or makes optional a virtual learning instruction model or requires or makes optional a hybrid of in-person and virtual learning instruction models, or the child care provider of such son or daughter is unavailable, due to COVID–19 precautions.

Forbes senior contributor Adam Andrzejewski noted that critics are calling the measure “a personal bailout for bureaucrats.”

He added that “under the bill as currently drafted, full-time federal employees can take up to 600 hours in paid leave until September 30, up to $35 an hour and $1,400 a week. That’s 15 weeks for a 40-hour employee. Part-time and ‘seasonal’ employees are eligible, too, with equivalent hours established by their agency.”

A quick calculation shows that federal employees can collect up to $21,000 in paid leave under the proposed measure. Not bad for sitting at home in your pajamas.

anthony fauci Children in schools Coronavirus Covid-19 response Intelwars Rand Paul school closures

Sen. Rand Paul rips Dr. Anthony Fauci’s school closures guidance: He owes apology to ‘every single parent and school-age child in America’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blasted Dr. Anthony Fauci in a Sunday tweet after the infectious diseases expert said that schools should be open amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci said that the government’s “default position” should be to keep children in school — but close bars.

“If you look at the data,” he explained during the interview, “the spread among children and from children is not very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let’s try to get the kids back. But let’s try to mitigate the things that maintain and push the kind of community spread we are trying to avoid. And those are the things you know well. The bars, the restaurants … those are the things that drive the community spread. Not the schools.”

What are the details?

Following Fauci’s remarks, conservative activist Jack Posobiec tweeted, “Dr Fauci owes @RandPaul an apology.”

Paul immediately took notice and added his own two cents.

He wrote, “No, [Fauci] owes one to every single parent and school-age child in America. … I told him this multiple times this summer.”

What else?

Indeed, in July, Paul took Fauci to task during a Senate hearing regarding school closures amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the hearing, an incensed Paul accused Fauci of politicizing the coronavirus pandemic and the government’s response to mitigate the effects.

“When are we gonna tell the people the truth?” Paul asked. “That it’s OK to take their kids back to school. Dr. Fauci, every day, virtually every day we seem to hear from you things we can’t do. But when you’re asked, ‘Can we go back to school?’ I don’t hear much certitude at all, I hear, ‘Well maybe it depends.'”

“All of this body of evidence about schools around the world shows there’s no surge,” he continued. “All of the evidence shows it’s rare. I mean, we’re so politicized this and made it politically correct that the WHO releases that it’s rare, you have a scientist up there honestly giving her opinion. What happens to her? She’s blackballed and her report that she refers to is taken off the website!”

Paul wasn’t finished there.

“When you go to that scientist’s speech and you try to click on the link, the WHO has now screened it from us because it said something that’s not politically correct. Guess what?” he exclaimed. “It’s rare for kids to transmit this. But I hear nothing of that coming from you! All I hear, Dr. Fauci, is ‘We can’t do this, we can’t do that, we can’t play baseball.’ Even that’s not based on the science! I mean flu season peaks in February, we don’t know if COVID is gonna be like the flu season, it might, but we don’t know that!”

Fauci responded by saying that he agreed with much of what the Kentucky Republican had to say.

“So very quickly, Senator Paul, I agree with a lot of what you say about you know, this idea about people having to put their opinions out without data,” he began. “And sometimes you have to make extrapolations because you’re in a position where you need to at least give some sort of recommendation.”

“But if you were listening, and I think you were, to my opening statement and my response to one of the questions, I feel very strongly we need to do whatever we can to get the children back to school,” he continued. “So I think we are in lock agreement with that.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci Fauci closing bars Fauci closing schools Intelwars school closures

Anthony Fauci: Open up all schools — but close the bars

Dr. Anthony Fauci says that the United States should open up — and keep open — all schools, but should close bars amid the coronavirus pandemic.

What are the details?

In a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week,” the infectious diseases expert spoke with ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, who asked Fauci if a Biden administration could work on a plan to reopen schools.

Fauci said, “Martha, that’s a good question. We get asked it all the time. We say it, not being facetiously as a sound bite or anything, but you know, close the bars and keep the schools open, is what we really say.”

He continued, “Obviously, you don’t have one size fits all, but as I said in the past, and as you accurately quoted me, the default position should be to try as best as possible within reason to keep the children in school or to get them back to school.”

He also pointed out that mitigating community spread will help keep children in school.

“If you mitigate the things that you know are causing spread in a very, very profound way, in a robust way, if you bring that down, you will then indirectly and ultimately protect the children in the school because the community level is determined how things go across the board,” Fauci explained.

He then went on to insist that schools largely have not been behind large swaths of community spread.

“So my feeling would be the same thing. If you look at the data, the spread among children and from children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected,” he reasoned.

Fauci concluded, “Let’s try to get the kids back, but let’s try to mitigate the things that maintain and just push the kind of community spread that we’re trying to avoid.”

Germany Wants To Avoid “Yo-Yo Shutdown” Of Economy With 4-5 Months Of ‘Severe’ Lockdown

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Germany is among the latest large European countries to reimpose COVID-19 restrictions nationwide, alongside France, Germany, and the UK as cases rise across the continent.

While this has included shutting down pubs, restaurants, cafes, and potentially crowded night venues, the latest restrictions stopped short of school closures or retail outlets. German officials are now signaling to the public that they should brace for more months of “severe” measures to curb the surge in cases, according to Reuters on Sunday:

Germans should brace for another 4-5 months of severe measures to halt the rise in coronavirus infections and should not expect the current rules to be eased quickly, Economy Minister Peter Altmaier told weekly Bild am Sonntag.

Germany’s economy minister said the nation should be prepared for a months-long lockdown period to address surging coronavirus caseloads.

Describing that “we’re not out of the woods yet” Altmaier further emphasized that Berlin wants to avoid a “yo-yo shutdown” with the economy “constantly opening and closing”.

“If we don’t want days with 50,000 new infections, as was the case in France a few weeks ago, we must see through this and not constantly speculate about which measures can be relaxed again,” he told a German newspaper over the weekend.

“All countries that lifted their restrictions too early have so far paid a high price in terms of human lives lost,” he added.

Last week Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that Germans can expect a “more severe” outbreak during the second wave. “As it was the case with the Spanish flu, we now also have to expect that the second wave will be more severe,” she said Wednesday.

As of Sunday Germany is on the cusp of surpassing 800,000 confirmed infections, including over 12,500 deaths, making it the 13th most infected country globally.

Coronavirus and schools Covid closures COVID-19 Georgia school district Intelwars school closures

School district that does not mandate masks closes high school after 59 COVID-19 cases emerge districtwide. There are a whopping 42,000 students in the district.

A Georgia school district that does not require mask-wearing is at the center of a media frenzy after 1,100 students and staff in the district were recently quarantined due to the coronavirus.

The district — which is composed of approximately 30,000 students who are receiving in-person instruction for the first quarter of the fall semester — closed one of its schools after the school reported to have 14 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

What are the details?

According to NBC News, the Cherokee County School District announced on Tuesday that in-person instruction at Etowah High School would be closing just eight days after reopening due to the outbreak.

The school will remain closed until at least Aug. 31.

In a statement published on the district website, Cherokee County School District Superintendent Brian Hightower said, “This decision was not made lightly. As a result of the confirmed cases, 294 students and staff are under quarantine and, should the pending tests prove positive, that total would increase dramatically.”

The outlet reported that the district has another 1,156 students and 37 staff members in quarantine.

Hightower revealed that there have been at least 59 cases of COVID-19 across the district — which has a total of around 42,000 students.

He added that more school closures could be on the way because of this.

“As your Superintendent, I wear a mask whenever I cannot social distance,” Hightower explained in his statement. “We know all parents do not believe the scientific research that indicates masks are beneficial, but I believe it, and see masks as an important measure to help us keep schools open.”

He continued, “When we announced plans to reopen schools with options of in-person learning and digital learning at home, we made clear the challenges that came along with this choice for our families.”

So what does this mean?

If a total of 59 infections has closed doors in the district, which boasts a student population of approximately 42,000 — and of which 30,000 are receiving in-person instruction — that would mean that the infection rate is approximately .2 percent among students in the district.

In its most recent estimate, the Centers for Disease Control says that the “overall percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 decreased from 8.7% … to 7.8%.”

All of that considered, the district should, perhaps, be celebrated for its apparent attempts in reducing the spread of coronavirus.

Coronavirus Coronavirus america Coronavirus outbreak Coronavirus panic Coronavirus us COVID-19 Grades Harvard Intelwars school closures Shut-down Students Universal pass yale

Yale, Harvard students demand ‘universal pass’ system for online classes amid coronavirus — with no chance of failure

Students at Yale University and Harvard University are urging the schools to implement a “universal pass” grading system amid the coronavirus outbreak ensuring that all students receive credit for their classes, the College Fix reported Friday.

A universal pass system would result in students receiving credit for every class they are currently enrolled in for the spring semester without any possibility of failure. The students would simply receive a “P” (“pass”) on their transcripts instead of letter grades.

Yale students were the first to propose the idea

The measure was first proposed at Yale, where a coalition of undergraduates advocated for it on the basis of “equity.”

According to the Yale Daily News, one of the students who is a proponent of the measure argued that “requiring undergraduates — many burdened by sickness, hectic home lives or living thousands of miles away from the University — to devote the same level of attention and focus to their classes as they would in the Elm City seems unfair.”

On the other hand, “universal pass is just a very fair grading system,” she added. “People come from different circumstances.”

The argument for the measure hangs on the notion that, for many, campus was an equalizer. Now that students are forced away from campus, those who have consistent internet access and a stable home setting will have an inherent advantage, proponents say.

Critics of the universal pass system argue the problem would best be solved by an “opt-in” model, where students could choose whether or not they would like to forgo letter grades and instead adhere to a pass/fail system.

According to the report, Computer Science professor David Gelernter is among the critics. He argued that failure is a part of life: “If you don’t take risks you aren’t living, you’re just rehearsing,” he wrote in an email to the Yale Daily News.

A commenter on the article also shared his sentiment and argued that a universal pass system is not as equitable as it may first appear.

“I think professors can be more relaxed about grading without skipping grades entirely. What if someone does no work and someone else works hard at it, but they each receive a ‘universal pass?’ Does that result in equity?” the commenter asked.

Harvard students follow suit

At Harvard, students already have the option to take some of their classes on a pass/fail basis due to the coronavirus shutdown. But, taking their cues from Yale, some students feel that the current measure is “Insufficiently equitable,” reported the Harvard Crimson.

“Given the variety of conditions that students are facing right now at home — whether that’s limited internet access, or having to find a way to make money for the families, or the stress that having another individual in the household brings — it is my belief, and I think the belief in a lot of people in first-gen community, that there should be a different kind of grading accommodation for students during the semester,” one student said.

Another student group went even further, suggesting that the school should implement a “Double A model.” Under this model, students would either receive an “A” or an “A-minus” — those are the only options.

Proponents of this measure argue that letter grades are important for those students who desire to pursue admission to competitive graduate programs.

Whichever program, if any, is adopted, the school must “equalize” the differences in students’ living situations and resources, one student asserted.

“When you’re on campus, we all have the same resources,” she said. “But when you put us all in different places, Harvard needs to make sure that the grades that end up at the end of semester don’t just show differences in income and background.”

Coronavirus Coronavirus america COVID-19 Education Governor Intelwars Mike dewine Ohio School closing school closures

Ohio governor orders schools closed for ‘an extended spring break of 3 weeks’ because of coronavirus

Schoolchildren in Ohio are in for a long spring vacation starting Monday, as the state’s governor has ordered all of the schools closed for three weeks in response to the ongoing global outbreak of the new coronavirus — formally known as COVID-19.

Republican Gov. Mike DeWine made the announcement in a Twitter thread Thursday afternoon, in which he explained that while children were at low risk of dying from the fast-spreading disease if they don’t have underlying medical problems, they could potentially carry the virus.

“We have today again consulted with experts, so we are announcing today that children in the state will have an extended spring break of 3 weeks. We will review it afterwards.” DeWine tweeted. explaining that the prolonged adjournment would begin on Monday.

“We will continue to consult with educators on this,” the governor said in a subsequent tweet. “We have to take this action. We have to do everything we can to slow down the spread of this virus.”

The governor also explained in the announcement that the closure will apply to all K-12 institutions in the state, including private and charter schools.

“We know #COVID19 will spread, but by slowing it down it’ll allow our healthcare system to work,” DeWine explained. “We don’t want our healthcare providers to have to make the decision of who lives and who dies.”

While Buckeye state students from kindergarteners to high school seniors may find cause to rejoice over the extra time away from the classroom, the extended break is also likely to put a strain on working parents who will now have to figure out child care plans for the next three weeks — a reality that the governor also addressed on Thursday.

“We know this will impact families,” DeWine conceded in the announcement. “We understand the sacrifice this will entail, but this is the right thing to do.” He later added that his administration “have waited to close schools, but based on advice from health experts, this is the time to do it.”

As of Thursday afternoon, there were five confirmed cases of the virus in the state and more than 330 people under “health supervision,” according to numbers from the Ohio Department of Health.

DeWine also announced Thursday afternoon that the Department of Health would issue “an order banning mass gatherings” of over 100 people, which he said would include “auditoriums, stadiums, arenas, large conference rooms, meeting halls, cafeterias, or any other confined indoor or outdoor space” but would not include “normal operations” at places like shopping malls or airports, “typical office environments,” or religious services.

State officials have also taken steps to protect elderly citizens, who are especially vulnerable to the virus. DeWine’s school closure announcement comes just one day after directors for the state’s health department and the Ohio Department of Veterans’ Services issued a joint order limiting nursing home and assisted living facility residents to receiving one visitor per day. The order also requires that people entering the facilities be screened for signs of illness.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars IRELAND National Emergency pandemic school closures

Ireland closes all schools, universities and restricts hospital, prison visits amid COVID-19 panic

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar announced Thursday that schools and colleges in Ireland would temporarily close their doors due to the ongoing coronavirus — or COVID-19 — outbreak, according to the BBC.

At least one person has died in Ireland at the time of this writing due to COVID-19.

What are the details?

Varadkar announced Thursday morning that the closures begin on Thursday and to last at least until March 29.

He also said that any indoor gatherings of more than 100 people — as well as outdoor gatherings of more than 500 people — should also be canceled. Varadkar added that people should begin to work remotely if they have the option.

“I know that some of this is coming as a real shock, and it is going to involve big changes in the way we live our lives, and I know I’m asking people to make enormous sacrifices, but we’re doing it for each other,” he said.

He continued, “Our economy will suffer, but it will bounce back. … Lost time in school or college will be recovered, and in time, our lives will go back to normal.”

“Ireland is a great nation,” Varadkar continued. “We’re great people. We’ve experienced hardship and struggle before [and] we’ve overcome many trials in the past.”

Airports and ports will remain operational, Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney said, as well as shops and public transport.

“The actions we are announcing today are absolutely necessary and justified,” Coveney insisted. “We are asking people to continue to work. Those who go to their places of work should limit their contacts, particularly face-to-face meetings.”

He added, “We do need to respond with calm, with unity, with discipline, and resolve. These are the right measures at the right time based on the best public health advice.”

Irish Health Minister Simon Harris also revealed that all museums, galleries, and tourist attractions will close for the time being.

Tony Holohan, who is Ireland’s chief medical officer, also announced restrictions on visitors at public facilities such as hospitals and prisons.

“We’ve recommended that there be restrictions now on visiting hospitals, long-term care settings, mental health facilities, prisons, and spacing measures applied in homeless shelters,” he said. “We’ll continue to meet — not necessarily to identify new measures, but to continue to provide advice and guidance.”

America collapse Conspiracy Fact and Theory Coronavirus death toll domestic air travel Emergency Preparedness forced quarantine forced vaccines Headline News hospitals Infections Intelwars Market Crash Police State Predictions Preparedness school closures societal collapse testing numbers

Here’s What’s Coming for America as the Coronavirus Spread: MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW

This article was originally published by Mike Adams at Natural News. 

Now that the CDC has invoked its “rule by secrecy” mode by hiding coronavirus testing numbers in order to deceive America (while it quietly “seeds” infected people into the population), it’s abundantly obvious that the coronavirus outbreak in America is going to be used to invoke medical martial law.

There are already thousands of infections across America that have not yet been tested — all by design, of course, as the CDC withheld testing kits from hospitals and local health officials across the country. By our best estimates, there are currently between 5,000 and 10,000 infections in America, mostly along the West Coast (Seattle and Northern California) with new outbreaks taking place in New York City, Miami, Chicago, and other major cities.

Right now, domestic air travel is spreading the virus like crazy, since it spreads during the asymptomatic phase when people don’t even know they’re infected. There is currently no screening of domestic air travelers, and no domestic flight routes have been locked down (although that’s coming soon).

Importantly, the coronavirus has already broken containment in America and is now impossible to contain. It will impact every major city in America.

Here are a few of my predictions for where we’re going with this. So buckle up and get ready, because the coronavirus is coming to a city near you:

#1) Hospitals will be overrun in regions of America – As the exponential growth rates cause an explosion in infection cases, hospital beds that can handle biocontainment demands will quickly be full. We are close to that condition at this very moment, in fact.

#2) Entire cities in America will be placed under quarantine lockdown status: This may take a while to be fully recognized and declared, but it will occur. Once you are caught in quarantine, you will not be allowed to leave, for fear that you might spread the disease to other cities.

#3) School closures will become commonplace: This is already beginning to occur, and the practice will rapidly spread.

#4) Over the coming week, there will be tens of infections confirmed in America: By the end of this week (Sunday night), we should expect somewhere around 100 new cases having been confirmed this week.

#5) Within 30 days, if lab testing is allowed to take place, you will see hundreds of coronavirus infections confirmed in America. Watch for cases to jump to 200, then 500, etc. If the testing is allowed to take place, this is inevitable.

#6) Within 90 days, if the labs are legitimately trying to test everyone they can, you will see thousands of coronavirus infections confirmed in America. By June, in other words, there will be thousands of confirmed infections in America, and possibly over 10,000 by that time.

#7) Unless there’s a miracle intervention, eventually the number of coronavirus infections confirmed in America will exceed 100,000. This is mathematically inevitable, especially with the widespread negligence, incompetence and even criminal maliciousness of federal agencies that are right now telling Americans to NOT prepare. The federal government, of course, may never allow these numbers to see the light of day, since the CDC and the Trump administration now appear to be modeling their response after communist China (basically just lie about everything and hide the truth).

#8) Restrictions on domestic air travel, armed highway checkpoints: Once the quarantines begin, you will see armed roadside checkpoints and domestic air travel restrictions put in place. America will become a medical police state.

#9) Forced vaccines and “show me your papers” police state protocols. Eventually, once the vaccine is rolled out, you will see calls for mandatory vaccines and restrictions on human rights for people who are not vaccinated (no right to hold a job, no right to travel on public transportation, no right to be a parent, etc.). Prepare to be required to carry proof that you’ve been vaccinated. “Show me your papers.”

#10) The near-collapse of entire cities into lawlessness and chaos: Although it might take a year or more for the full extent of the coronavirus pandemic to work its way across the nation, at some point entire cities will seemingly descend into lawlessness and chaos. The U.S. military is already reportedly planning for up to 3.3 million deaths in America as a possible scenario. The quarantines, paycheck losses and the severing of food supply lines will wreak havoc in cities like Seattle and San Francisco, where homelessness and filth are already out of control, even without a pandemic.

Just remember, you are told there’s no need for YOU to prepare, even while the military and government are buying every truckload of emergency supplies they can find.

It’s criminal. When the Surgeon General tells you to STOP buying masks because they don’t work, and then says hospital staffers need all those masks because they DO work, you know he’s lying.

Get prepared with gear, or get ready to die. That about sums it up.

Coronavirus Coronavirus italy Departments of health Disease Intelwars school closures viruses

Italy set to close schools across the country in attempt to contain coronavirus

Italy is set to close schools across the country in an apparent effort to tamp down the spread of coronavirus.

What are the details?

According to a Wednesday Bloomberg report, Education Minister Lucia Azzolina said that a decision on the matter is forthcoming.

“We have asked for an opinion from the scientific committee on whether schools should be left open or closed,” Azzolina told reporters in Rome.

The outlet noted that Italian media, such as Ansa and la Repubblica, reported that school shutdowns would begin on Thursday and last until mid-March.

During a Tuesday news conference, Angelo Borrelli, head of the country’s Civil Protection Agency, said, “None of us can be sure about the future evolution of the disease. This is an important week to understand what will happen.”

Fabrizio Pregliasco, virologist at Milan University, added, “The virus is severely testing our health facilities and we need to limit children getting together. Closing schools is a necessary measure because it will help limit the spread.”

The New York Post reported that 2,502 cases of COVID-19 had been reported in Italy as of Wednesday. At least 79 people in Italy have died as of Tuesday, up from 52 on Monday.

What else?

Japan announced this week its plans to close schools until further notice.

Beginning Thursday, schools will be closed until further notice. The Japanese school year ends in March.

About 12.8 million students at 34,800 schools nationwide will be impacted by the countrywide closures.

Japan set to close all schools ahead of worldwide coronavirus outbreak

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is
requesting that all schools nationwide close its doors until late March in order to tamp down the spread of coronavirus, or specifically known as COVID-19.

Beginning Thursday, schools will be closed until further notice. The Japanese school year ends in March.

Abe also added that schools should consider the virus when planning March exams and graduation ceremonies.

Anything else?

The Centers for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health confirmed the first apparent case of coronavirus from community spread on Thursday in California.

Health officials don’t know how the unnamed patient contracted the virus. The patient has not been exposed to any coronavirus patients, nor had traveled outside of the U.S. in recent weeks.

The unnamed patient is the 15th confirmed coronavirus case in the U.S.

In a statement, the California Department of Public Health confirmed the news.

“This would be the first known instance of person-to-person transmission in the general public in the United States,” the statement read. “Previously known instances of person-to-person transmission in the United States include one instance in Chicago, Illinois, and one in San Benito County, California. Both cases were after close, prolonged interaction with a family member who returned from Wuhan, China, and had tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by novel coronavirus. As of today, including this case, California has had seven travel-related cases, one close contact case, and now one community transmission.”
