Not Giving Up: CDC Says COVID Spreads More Than 6 Feet

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is stopping at nothing to make sure people stay isolated from each other. Now, apparently, the smartest virus in history can infect people 6 feet apart, so we have to stay even farther away from others.

When will the public tire of these lies and bold agenda pushing? Probably never based on everything else they’ve been willing to subject themselves to.

Ruling Class: The Scamdemic Won’t End Until The WHOLE WORLD Is Vaccinated

The ruling class’s agency has allegedly “repeatedly documented” instances of coronavirus spreading through the air to people more than 6 feet away under certain conditions. “Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from inhalation of virus in the air farther than six feet from an infectious source can occur,” the new document says in large letters while noting it is “less likely than at closer distances.”

The risk of this kind of spread is highest indoors in places with “inadequate ventilation,” when people are shouting or singing, or when people are exposed for long periods of time, the CDC said.

Experts have also long said that being outdoors is far safer than being indoors. Yet last March, the rulers demanded we lock ourselves indoors in our homes for six weeks and allow our businesses to fail in epic numbers while still sat in lush mansions collecting paychecks off the backs of the slaves.

The CDC acknowledged in October that the virus can spread through airborne transmission, but there has since been a growing emphasis on that method of transmission. They can’t have us getting together and figuring things out, so the push to shove us further apart has begun.

The attempt to continually panic the public is obvious. The more they can get us to live in fear of each other, the more gene therapy shots they can get into arms. The good news is that they are running out of gullible sheep willing to take this thing.

COVID-19 Critical Thinking fear mongering government is slavery Headline News Infections Intelwars Mainstream media Moderna Mutations official narrative Pfizer propaganda outlets the devil Transmission vaccines variants wake up

MSM Finds More Fear: CA COVID Mutant “The Devil” Is A Cause For Concern

The mainstream media will find fear wherever it can, and if it cannot find any, it’ll gin some up.  We know the ultimate goal is a total panicked state of fear in the masses, as fearful people make much better slaves.

A COVID-19 variant discovered in California has been dubbed “the devil” by one of the scientists studying it. “This variant is concerning because our data shows that it is more contagious, more likely to be associated with severe illness, and at least partially resistant to neutralizing antibodies,” said senior author Charles Chiu, an infectious diseases physician at the University of California, San Francisco.

This puppet of the ruling class, Dr. Chiu, said that he “fears if its spread isn’t stopped,” it could one day meet the highly infectious United Kingdom variant and swap genes, creating a “nightmare scenario.” Anyone with half a brain knows that this means they are ginning up the fear in order to get more to comply with the vaccine and more financial devastation in the form of lockdowns and totalitarian control over human behavior.

We had better wake up, and quick.

The Californian mutant strain of the virus, formally known as B.1.427/B.1.42, was first detected in the state last year ahead of a massive surge in infections over the northern hemisphere winter, according to NewsHub.

According to “new research” on B.1.427/B.1.42 (which oddly enough fits the official narrative like a glove) the variant:

  • is four times less susceptible than the original coronavirus to neutralizing antibodies
  • is two times less susceptible to antibodies from the blood of people vaccinated with the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines
  • has a case-fatality ratio five to six times higher than normal COVID-19
  • spread six times faster in an outbreak at a nursing home than previous strains
  • had viral loads twice as high in the nasopharynx than people infected with other strains
  • has mutations not yet seen in other coronavirus variants, including one  – L452R – that makes it 40 percent better at infecting the lungs
  • is perhaps three times as infectious (considerably more than the dreaded UK variant, estimated at between 40 and 80 percent more infectious).

More COIVD-19 Vax Deaths: Think They’ll Blame This On COVID-21?

Critical thinking will be critical in the coming year.  Brace yourself, and stay alert.

abolish all slavery behavior modification Big Pharma common cold control Death fear mongering freedom is our birthright goalposts government is slavery Headline News History Hoax human beings Intelwars liars live as a slave mainstrem media Masks Nalin Johri plandemic rollout ruling class scamdemic shots are intense side effects slave state social distancing symptoms Transmission Virus wake up

Even IF You Are Fully Vaccinated For COVID-19, You Still Have Comply With The Edicts

The “experts” are saying that even after you are fully vaccinated (got two shots of the Big Pharma COVID-19 vaccine) you have to still follow the same tyrannical edicts that everyone else does. Getting injected doesn’t mean you can go back to normal.

At this point, most people have hopefully figured out there is no “going back to normal.”  After all, you can still get and transmit the virus even if you’re fully vaccinated, so you are supposed to remain terrified and afraid of being a human.  But the control freaks say you’ll have “fewer symptoms” if you get the vaccine. It’s hard to believe that getting two Big Pharma jabs is worth it to some people.

Vaccine Trial Participants Warn: Side Effects After Second Shot Are “Intense”

The ruling class with the help of the mainstream media simply want to be able to change humans’ behavior on a whim, and so far, up to this point anyway, they’ve been overtly successful:

The key to being able to ultimately change our behavior is protecting a large percentage of the population through vaccination, said Stephanie Silvera, a professor of public health at Montclair State University.Widespread vaccination will reduce the number of people who become infected and not permit the virus to reproduce and continue to spread, she said.

Although vaccines usually prevent transmission, that was not confirmed in the clinical trials of the vaccines, said Silvera.

“Viruses need hosts to continue to reproduce,” she said. “If we reduce the number of possible hosts through vaccination, we can then prevent the transmission and resume activities that were put in place to counter the spread of this virus.” –NJ.com

In fact, submitting to the commands of the ruling class won’t actually net you any more freedom. Shocking, right?

Nalin Johri, the acting program director of the Seton Hall Master of Healthcare Administration Program, said you should still follow CDC guidelines and at a minimum wear a mask, socially distance and keep washing your hands even after having two doses. The problem, Johri said, is that while the vaccine provides protection against severe illness, it does not provide 100 percent protection, but more importantly, even if you are vaccinated you may still be able to spread the virus to unvaccinated people.

These people act the unvaccinated care. If they lived their lives in a panicked state of mainstream media-induced fear, they’d have already gotten the shots like the other cattle. This is one of the biggest vaccine pushed in human history, and it’s global.  Wake up.  It’s easy to see this isn’t being done for your own good or the good of others.

afraid control CORRUPTION COVID-19 dignity don't fall for it eliminate the middle class enslavement of mankind Fear forever government is slavery Great Reset Headline News Hoax human rights Humanity impact Intelwars Jonathan Van-Tam liars lockdowns masked Mutations Pass it on plandemic power scamdemic Transmission Vaccine Virus

MSM Admits: Vaccinated People Can Still Spread COVID

The mainstream media is admitting that the COVID-19 vaccines aren’t working and can still spread the virus.  That begs the question: why even bother getting it then and putting up with the side effects?

Well, the lockdowns and elimination of the middle class in order to usher in the Great Reset is one reason they want you to know the vaccines don’t work.

Covid “Mutation” Stories Show That The Lockdowns Are Designed To Last Forever

People who have received a Covid-19 vaccine could still pass the virus on to others and should continue following lockdown rules, England’s deputy chief medical officer has warned. -BBC

The ruling class needs everyone masked, afraid, and locked down so they can finish enslaving everyone.

Professor Jonathan Van-Tam stressed that scientists “do not yet know the impact of the vaccine on transmission”. He said vaccines offer only “hope” but infection rates must come down quickly.

Matt Hancock said 75% of over-80s in the United Kingdom have now had a first virus jab, side effects have been horrific, and people have even died. Those who didn’t experience side effects after the first dose are likely to have a reaction after the second dose, as doctors are already warning people.

Vaccine Trial Participants Warn: Side Effects After Second Shot Are “Intense”

Doctors Say The CDC Should “Warn” People About COVID-19 Vax Side Effects

COVID Czar Admits The Vaccine Has “Significant Side Effects”

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines require two doses, and statistical figures so far reflect those given the first dose. The health secretary told the BBC‘s Andrew Marr that around three-quarters of care homes had also been vaccinated. The tyrants who are still trying to convince the masses to get this injection say that no vaccine is 100% effective, so we should take it anyway, put up with the side effects, and know that it might not work.

Proffessor Van-Tam said “no vaccine has ever been” 100% effective, so there is no guaranteed protection.

It is possible to contract the virus in the two- to three-week period after receiving a jab, he said – and it is “better” to allow “at least three weeks” for an immune response to fully develop in older people.

“Even after you have had both doses of the vaccine you may still give Covid-19 to someone else and the chains of transmission will then continue,” Prof Van-Tam said. -BBC

Personally, I think they need a better propaganda campaign. This isn’t going to work on even the most dumbed-down people in society.

WHO Chief Scientist: There Is NO EVIDENCE That The Vaccine Will Prevent Infection

A World Health Organization chief scientist has said that there is no evidence that any of the approved vaccines will prevent a person from getting infected with COVID-19.  This scamdemic is never-ending and the hoax is becoming more apparent by the day.

The comments were made by WHO chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan during what appears to have been a virtual press conference held Monday. Swaminathan said there is “no evidence to be confident shots prevent transmission” and that people who receive the vaccine should continue wearing masks and following all social distancing and travel guidelines. She’s not the only tyrant to suggest the vaccine is worthless, yet you should get it anyway and still wear your ritualistic shame muzzle signaling your submission to the New World Order cult. 

Fauci: Take The Vaccine, Or Wear The Submission Muzzle Forever

“At the moment, I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines, to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from getting the infection and passing it on,” she said.

Of course, a close look at the research released by Pfizer and Moderna shows the studies haven’t actually tested whether the vaccines actually prevent transmission of the virus; the goal of the trials was to see whether vaccinated patients presented with COVID symptoms at a rate that was substantially less frequent than individuals who hadn’t been vaccinated. That’s pretty much it, according to a report by ZeroHedge Though the data might hint at lowering transmission rates, that’s still to be determined, apparently.

Are there still people lining up to get this thing? If they can only get only 5% of the population to agree to take this vaccine, it will eventually disappear, but not without a massive propaganda push to get the public injected.

The time to stand against this tyranny is now. Forcing something (anything, not just a vaccine) into another person’s body is one the biggest human rights violations you can commit. Wake up and stand on some kind of morals, because as we’ve seen, the ruling class will not.

bio weapon bleeding Bolivia Chapare COVID-19 Disease Eblola-like virus Headline News Hoax human-to-human Intelwars LIES Mutation outbreak patient zero propaganda Transmission

Outbreak Alert: Ebola-Like Virus Jumps Human to Human In Bolivia

A rodent-borne virus has been found to jump from human to human. Chapare virus first emerged in 2004 in the Bolivian province from which it gets its name, about 370 miles east of the country’s capital city, La Paz.

This virus is similar to Ebola and causes massive bleeding. At present, there is no treatment for Chapare outside of intravenous hydration and supportive care. The virus causes fever, headache, abdominal pain, rash, and bleeding of the gums, and is believed to result from contact with rat urine or droppings, according to RT. 

So far, it doesn’t appear that the elitists are attempting to pass this off as a COVID mutation, considering they already have it named.  That doesn’t mean we won’t have a COVID-21 scam (mutation, or a release bioweapon) to continue to panic the public and generate the depopulation the powers-that-shouldn’t-be so desperately want. Don’t put it past them to use this and pay attention to what’s happening.

The timing of this story is uncanny, to say the least.

Dr. Caitlin Cossaboom, an epidemiologist with the US Centers for Disease Control, presented findings from her research into a 2019 outbreak to the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene’s annual meeting on Monday.

A 65-year-old rice farmer was patient zero in the outbreak who then spread the disease to a 25-year-old doctor who treated him. –RT. 

Scientists have concerns about how long the virus may have been circulating in the country. It could have been going around for years with patients having been misdiagnosed with dengue fever, a mosquito-borne virus that cannot be transmitted from human-to-human, unlike Chapare.

The good news is that arenaviruses, such as Chapare, are vulnerable to both heat and disinfectants, which means that global spread is extremely unlikely.

Bill de Blasio canceled Thanksgiving commands comply control Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci Dr. deborah birx enslave fear mongering fear porn Force government is a scam Headline News infection Intelwars LIES masses New York City Obey Politicians propaganda sacrifices socializing Transmission tyranny

Fauci Wants Everyone To “Sacrifice” By Refusing To Celebrate Thanksgiving

Authoritarian Dr. Anthony Fauci wants us to “sacrifice” and give up our traditions and time with family. He is urging Americans to give up Thanksgiving this year.

Tyrant Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City has already canceled the iconic and historic Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade in.  We are supposed to be giving up this time generally spend socializing with family and being grateful for everything so they can keep the fear going over this coronavirus scamdemic.

“Thanksgiving is going to look very different this year,” said Fauci. And he’s right, but only because people are still bowing to the commands of politicians and going along with tyranny.

Fauci said Dr. Deborah Birx has done a good job enslaving the masses too using fear. “She’s done an amazing job of traveling to different states trying to get a feel for what’s going on,” he told CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell. Fauci said Birx told him: ”Household transmission now is assuming a greater element of the transmissibility. Don’t assume that because you’re in your own home with your own family that you’re not going to spread infection.”

Did anyone catch that? Weren’t we supposed to be locked in our homes back in March to prevent the spread of this virus? Now they don’t even want us around our own family? This is getting so ridiculous, and it’s absolutely astonishing that a good number of humans haven’t figured out that this was all a lie from the beginning.

“People should be very careful and prudent about social gatherings,” Fauci said. “You may have to bite the bullet, and sacrifice social gatherings unless you’re pretty certain that the people you’re dealing with are not infected or have very recently tested, or they’re living a lifestyle in which they don’t have any interaction with anybody except you and your family.” Fauci and everyone else telling people how they will act and behave can piss off. If you aren’t sick of being dictated too, you will make a good slave for the New World Order.

To say “wake up” has become cliche. If you haven’t figured it out yet, you are probably doomed to a live of servitude in the New World Order where you do one thing for the rest of your life: comply. This isn’t about health.  This about manufacturing compliance with tyranny.

CDC control Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci enslavement face masks Headline News illness ineffective Intelwars liars in suits mask wearing masks don't work Occult outbreak Politicians power Religious Rituals Study symbolism symptomatic Transmission tyranny viral wake up

CDC Study: Most COVID-19 Cases Were Admitted Mask Wearers

A new study released by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released the findings of a new study, in which the overwhelming number of new coronavirus cases came from people who religiously wear masks. The study, which was released in September and ignored by mainstream media and politicians found that masks are ineffective at the prevention of viral infections.

Read the entire study here.

The study, which was conducted in the United States in July found that when the CDC compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from the same health care facility who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.

In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of case-patients and 74% of control participants reported always using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public,” the report stated.

In addition, over 14 percent of the case-patients said they “often” wore a face covering and were still infected with the virus. The study also demonstrates that under 4 percent of the case-patients became sick with the virus even though they “never” wore a mask or face covering.

Despite over 70 percent of the case-patient participants’ efforts to follow CDC recommendations by committing to always wearing face coverings at “gatherings with ?10 or >10 persons in a home; shopping; dining at a restaurant; going to an office setting, salon, gym, bar/coffee shop, or church/religious gathering; or using public transportation,” they still contracted the virus. –The Federalist

This more than proves that face masks are ineffective at stopping COVID-19, so why does the CDC still recommend them? Is there something more sinister going on? That’s up to you to decide, but I would personally say it is more than a possibility.

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, and many political parasites authorities are still encouraging people to wear masks as well. Several states, cities, and other municipalities have even mandated face masks, citing them as one of the main tools to “slow the spread” of coronavirus and keep case numbers in their area down.

The mainstream media is deliberately ignoring this information, to obviously lay cover for tyrannical politicians seeking more power and control.

airborne CDC Coronavirus COVID-19 Earth Fear fear mongering Headline News infection Intelwars keep the fear going LIES Mainstream media mixed messages moved goalposts outbreak propaganda smart virus statement talking heads Transmission

CDC Changes Its Mind Again: COVID-19 Is ‘SOMETIMES’ Airborne

Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cannot just give a straight answer or provide people with the truth, they have said the “smartest virus on Earth” is sometimes airborne. COVID-19 is apparently, not always airborne, but it can be.

If this makes no sense to you, you’re not alone. The agency is once again claiming that the coronavirus can be airborne, but that it is not the main method of transmission. This is from a mainstream media source, and even they are feeling like this is a mixed message:

For the third time in less than a month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has altered its guidance on how Covid-19 spreads. The agency said Monday that airborne transmission is possible, but that it’s not the most common way the virus travels from person to person — a position that was published and then removed from its website in September. –NBC News

They are desperately trying to push that this virus is contagious even with more than six feet of distance.

The CDC updated its page on the spread of virus Monday to say that “some infections can be spread by exposure to the virus in small droplets and particles that can linger in the air for minutes to hours.”

Those small droplets and particles in turn may be able to infect people who are farther than 6 feet away “from the person who is infected or after that person has left the space.” –NBC News

The coronavirus is the most intelligent virus on Earth apparently.

Coronavirus Mutations? Or More MSM Fear Mongering?

There is desperation to keep the fear about this virus going for as long as possible. On Monday, the CDC issued a statement on the latest set of transmission guidelines, acknowledging “the existence of some published reports showing limited, uncommon circumstances where people with Covid-19 infected others who were more than 6 feet away or shortly after the COVID-19-positive person left an area.”

“In these instances,” the statement said, “transmission occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces that often involved activities that caused heavier breathing, like singing or exercise.”

This could be leading up to another lockdown, especially as we see positive cases rising all over the United States.

bureaucrat Church Coronavirus CORRUPTION COVID-19 Diseases Dr. anthony fauci Dr. Ron Paul Evidence Gatherings George floyd harmful Headline News Hoax Hydroxychloroquine Intelwars LIES medicine and state merger of church and state oppression Protests Ron Paul Scam staty at home orders Transmission United States

Coronavirus Shows Why We Need Separation of Medicine and State!

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. 

It seems like only yesterday. Americans were denied the right to go to their churches. They were denied the right to visit their loved ones in the hospital. They were denied the right to open their businesses and go to work to provide for themselves and their families. They were denied the right to go to restaurants, to bars, to hair salons.

No laws were passed denying these rights. Even that would be illegal and immoral. But what happened was worse. They were denied these basic rights by governors, county judges, and even local mayors who used the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse to rule by decree. They stole power that was not theirs to take and wielded it at all levels to force America into three months of house arrest.

Then, in the midst of stay-at-home orders across the country, the same governors and local officials who locked Americans in their homes suddenly came around with their keys and threw open the doors. Suddenly not only was it OK to go out into the street, it was required to go out into the street!

What happened? A cure? A miraculous vaccine? No. The officials who locked Americans up found a cause they felt required Americans in the streets to protest. Police had killed a black man, George Floyd, in their custody in Minneapolis and suddenly the need to protest trumped the need to “stay home, save lives.”

Suddenly the same health “experts” who told us we must not gather in crowds or there will be death in the millions from coronavirus issued statements supporting gathering in crowds. An open letter on the George Floyd protests signed by more than 1,200 doctors and other health professionals clarified that they “do not condemn these gatherings as risky for Covid-19 transmission.” However, they wrote, “this should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-at-home orders.”

Did the coronavirus develop some kind of superior intelligence enabling it to distinguish between those who were congregating for a “good cause” and those who were congregating for a “bad cause”? Of course not. What has happened from the beginning of this shameful coronavirus episode is the politicization of public health at the hands of authoritarians.

Two prestigious medical journals, The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, were forced to retract studies they had published concluding that Hydroxychloroquine was harmful to COVID patients. The rush to print the studies looks very much like a political move rather than one based on scientific principles. Once President Trump revealed that he was taking hydroxychloroquine the mainstream media and even “expert” journals began attacking the drug.

This is what happens when medicine merges with the state. We get the worst of both. We get career bureaucrat, Dr. Fauci, telling us we can never shake hands again and that we must stay home until a vaccine is found. Meanwhile, doctors across the globe are reporting that this variation of the coronavirus is disappearing on its own.

We have a tradition of separation of church and state in the United States for good reason. The merger of state and church invites oppression and corruption. We need to adopt this same approach to medicine and the state. We now see how this merger has produced the same kind of widespread tyranny and corruption.

Farragut, TN Passes Resolution to Stop 5G Installation Until FCC Limits Ensure Safety

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

People worldwide – including elected officials – are opposed to 5G being installed in their communities because of risks to biological health, cybersecurity (see 123), environmental health (see 1234), privacy (see 12), safety, and more.  Many cities and countries have taken action including banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions, etc. (see 123456).  This now includes Farragut, TN.

From Environmental Health Trust:

The Farragut Tennessee Resolution on 5G

Farragut Tennessee has approved a resolution calling on state and federal governments to halt 5G until health risks are evaluated by “sound science.”  The resolution details how FCC limits are outdated and considered inadequate to protect human health by many scientists. (EHT maintains research on 5G, 4G and wireless radiation HERE.)

“The measure asks governments to halt 5G infrastructure until the FCC conducts an independent study into any possible health risks posed by the technology.”- WBIR Farragut leaders call on state, federal governments for a halt to 5G towers

Excerpts from the 5G Resolution

WHEREAS, as the result of the concerns of numerous local governmental entities from around the country and their citizens that the FCC has failed to study and reevaluate the health effects of its current standards in light of the inherent changes characterized by the 5G technology, litigation is pending against the FCC that seeks to stop the rapid deployment of the 5G infrastructure until the FCC has completed its study of the health effects of the deployment of 5G technology and, if necessary, has updated its regulations accordingly.

NOW, THEREFORE, by the adoption of this Resolution the Board of Mayor and Alderman of the Town of Farragut, Tennessee petitions and encourages the governments of the United States of America and the State of Tennessee to take actions within their power to halt the deployment of the 5G wireless facilities within the rights-of-way of our local communities belonging to the public until such time as the only agency with the authority to do so, the FCC, reevaluates by an independent study the adequacy of its radio frequency emissions standards and concludes on the basis of sound science that those standards, or standards adopted as a result of said further study, are adequate to ensure that the health of the public at large will not be adversely affected by long-term exposure to radiofrequency emissions from the placement and operation of 5G wireless facilities throughout our communities

See a PDF of  the Farragut Tennessee 5G Resolution

Farragut Tennessee is one of several US cities taking action on the issue of 5G

Hallandale Beach Florida and Greendale Wisconsin have also passed 5G resolutions.

In April 2020 Sandy Springs Orders Stop Work Order for 5G Poles. “Upon hearing that subcontractors were approaching homeowners during this time of a national pandemic crisis, the city has issued a Stop Work Order on all installation in [residential] neighborhoods until the end of [the] pandemic crisis,” city spokesperson Sharon Kraun said. The installation of poles had already been controversial, with the city and residents critiquing them, but the city has failed to be able to block the installation locally due to state law.”

In March 2020, Keene New Hampshire halted 5G. “The council unanimously approved a separate motion, instructing staff to proceed with drafting an ordinance that would create location and design standards for small wireless facilities installed in public rights-of-way. Also known as small cells, these facilities can be used to roll out 5G, the next generation of mobile networks that boasts faster download and upload speeds, as well as previous generations.”

March 2020: Santa Barbara California Paused 5G. “Facing a gathering storm of opposition from anti-radiation activists worried about the health effects of the new 5G cellular technology, the Santa Barbara City Council voted to delay authorizing a licensing agreement with Verizon that would have allowed the cell phone service giant to install up to 60 new 5G cell phone antennas on light fixtures downtown.”

Actions by US Cities to Restrict “Small Cells” and/or 5G with ordinances include: 

  • Los Altos California:  installation of small cells on public utility easements in residential neighborhoods is prohibited.
  • Petaluma, California, no Small Cell shall be within 500 feet of any residence.
  • Fairfax and Mill Valley California, small cells prohibited in residential zones
  • San Diego County, no small cells located within 1,000 feet of schools, child care centers, hospitals, or churches.
  • Mason, Ohio, No small cells in residential areas or within 100 feet of residential property
  • Burlington, Massachusetts, annual recertification fees for small cells.
  • Baton Rouge, Small cell deployment halted.

The Best Ways to Prevent A Coronavirus Infection

Right now, the focus of SHTFPlan.com is to make sure all readers are as UPDATED as possible on the Covid-19 pandemic. Download our EXCLUSIVE report immediately at: http://www.shtfplan.com/virus

Instead of panicking like the rest of the United States, take the time to understand how you can prevent the coronavirus.  There are a few small things you can do that will have a major effect and minimize your chances of getting the virus.

Minimize Contact

This just means you should avoid people who are infected.  If you live in an area that’s experiencing an outbreak, consider wearing a facemask in public. Choose a mask that fits tightly to your face and offers a minimum of N95 protection. These masks will help protect you 80% of the time, which is certainly better than nothing.

Do your shopping online if you can.  Fresh vegetables and fruits will be difficult to get delivered, but some larger cities do offer this.  Shopping online is one way to reduce your contact with others during the outbreak.  Although it’s peaked and almost over in China, the U.S. may not have reached peak infections just yet. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Prepper Foods and Supplies to Survive Coronavirus Without Leaving the House

Cover your coughs and sneezes too by burying them in the elbow.  If you have a tissue available, use that and toss it in the trash immediately. If you sneeze into your elbow, make sure to completely cover the mouth and nose to prevent as many droplets as possible from getting in the air. At the end of the day, wash your clothes in warm soapy water to eliminate the viruses.  They likely won’t be active still, although they can be.  Viruses can live 8-12 hours on porous surfaces such as clothing. 

Wash Your Hands

Improving your handwashing will help dramatically reduce your chances of getting sick from colds, the flu, and the coronavirus.  Wash your hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds.  Wash up toward your wrists and get between your fingers. Teach your children to wash their hands well too.  Make sure you wash your hands before you eat, touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth, and obviously after you use the bathroom. This really does work to keep you healthy and it’s pretty simple to start doing if you don’t already.

Disinfect Surfaces

Make sure you take the time to disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs and remote controls. Do this several times a week, if not daily. Viruses can live in the air for up to 3 hours (after a cough or sneeze from an infected person) and for 2 to 3 days on stainless steel and plastic surfaces, according to a preprint posted Tuesday on medRxiv.  Past studies have shown common household disinfectants, including soap or a diluted bleach solution, can deactivate coronaviruses on indoor surfaces. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a protective fat layer. Disinfectants will tear apart that fat layer which makes coronaviruses “fairly wimpy” compared to noroviruses and other common viruses that have a more robust protein shell.

Just doing these three things will massively reduce your chances of getting sick in general, let alone cathing the coronavirus. General improvement in handwashing, cough and sneeze hygiene, and home disinfecting can go a long way as far as prevention is concerned.

But if you or a family member does get sick, be responsible and don’t spread it to others. Learn how to self-quarantine and stop the spread of the virus.

Black Swan Event containment Coronavirus Emergency Preparedness Headline News hospitals infection infection rate Intelwars market crass military preparations outbreak pandemic Recession Transmission Virus

Odds of Coronavirus Becoming a Pandemic Jump 40% As The Virus Wipes $5 Trillion From Markets

The odds of the coronavirus outbreak becoming a pandemic have jumped 40% recently. As nations struggle to contain this virus, it’s taking its toll on the markets too, wiping out $5 trillion.

Cases of the new coronavirus disease are rising quickly outside China, and the odds of the outbreak turning into a pandemic have now doubled. The odds are up from 20% to 40%, according to a report from Moody’s Analytics. “Our previous assumption that the virus will be contained in China proved optimistic, and the odds of a pandemic are rising,” said the firm according to CNBC. 

If this outbreak becomes the pandemic many are suspecting it will, the markets will take a further beating. Moody’s says that a global and U.S. recession is certain should the outbreak be labeled a pandemic.

Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?

“The economy was already fragile before the outbreak and vulnerable to anything that did not stick to script. COVID-19 is way off script,” the economists said. “COVID-19 came out of nowhere. It may be what economists call a black swan – a rare and inherently unforeseeable event with severe consequences,” they added.

 Coronavirus panic sent world share markets crashing again on Friday, compounding their worst week since the 2008 global financial crisis and bringing the wipeout in value terms to $5 trillion.

The rout showed no signs of slowing as Europe’s main markets slumped 2-3 percent early on and the ongoing dive for safety sent yields on U.S. government bonds, seen as probably the securest asset in the world, to fresh record lows.

The Risk To Trump’s Reelection: Market PLUNGES

Your savings account is at an even bigger risk now too. Analysts are now wagering that the Federal Reserve will cut U.S. interest rates as soon as next month and other major central banks will follow to try and nurse economies through the troubles and stave off a global recession.

California case Community spread Coronavirus Intelwars Transmission

California and Oregon both confirm new coronavirus cases of unknown origin

Health officials announced Friday that a second case of coronavirus contracted through community spread — where the patient had no apparent contact with a known case and did not travel to a region experiencing an outbreak — has been confirmed in California, 90 miles away from the state’s first community transmitted case. Within hours, state officials in Oregon also reported a case of unknown origin.

The news hit as the World Health Organization confirmed that the new virus, known as COVID-19, has now spread to 54 countries.

What are the details?

Santa Clara County’s Public Health Department issued a statement saying the new case in their California county “had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual” and warned, “now is the time to prepare for the possibility of widespread community transmission.”

California’s first case of community spread COVID-19 was announced Wednesday and confirmed to be in Solano County, roughly 90 miles away from Santa Clara.

Jennifer Nuzzo, senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security reacted to news of the second case, telling The Washington Post, “I think there’s a strong possibility that there’s local transmission going on in California. In other words, the virus is spreading within California, and I think there’s a possibility other states are in the same boat — they just haven’t recognized that yet.”

Sure enough, The Washington Post reported in a separate story within hours that a resident of Washington County, Oregon, had also contracted the coronavirus through community spread.

There are currently 59 known cases of COVID-19 in the United States, and according to the World Health Organization’s running count, there are now more than 83,000 confirmed cases across 54 countries (after Mexico announced its first two confirmed cases on Friday, Fox News reported). More than 2,800 people have died from the new coronavirus as of this writing.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press conference Friday, “This is a reality check for every government on the planet,” TIME reported. Ghebreyesus’ message to leaders was: “Wake up, get ready. This virus may be on its way and you need to be ready. You have a duty to your citizens, you have a duty to the world to be ready.”

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer on Friday, “We have been very transparent from day one that the risk to Americans at the present time is low, that that could change rapidly and that we must be prepared.”

Azar continued, “We, your government are taking this seriously, we are working with Congress, we are preparing across the federal, state and local levels, but for the everyday American, the risk to them is low and it does not result in a change to their lifestyle right now.”

The HHS secretary added, “But that can change, and we want to make sure we’re transparent about that.”

Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?

Health officials have been suggesting the use of face masks to prevent the spread and transmission of the coronavirus, which is quickly spreading around the globe.  But the real question is do they really protect you from the virus?

The simple answer is yes, but efficacy is still not 100%. As masks sell out everywhere, it’s time to understand what they do to help.

If you decide to use a face mask, choose a NIOSH-approved N100 mask because it protects the wearer by fully covering the mouth. An N100 mask will help prevent inhalation of 99.7% of airborne germs, which means they aren’t a totally fail-proof method. N95 and N99 masks can also be effective. They are still your best bet IF you have a proper fit and it is not loose on the sides.  Protection from debris and materials that are larger than 0.3 microns or greater can be achieved with both N100 and P100 respirators, as well as N95 and N99 respirators.

Since the general consensus has been that the coronavirus is expelled from an infected person and remains on dust particles and water droplets in the air, these can be effective at preventing the inhalation of infected debris as long as the fit is correct. 

Also, it’s important to note that the “N” designation means that these respirators are not resistant to oil. The “P” indicates that a P100 respirator is oil proof, meaning it should also work, but may cost you a bit more. If that’s all you can find, however,  it could boost your chances of not getting sick. But again, the mask needs to fit correctly and that cannot be stressed enough. 

Don’t just use a mask and expect that to be enough either. Even if it’s properly worn, it’s only about 80% effective, according to doctors.  Take the same precautions you would with the flu. Avoid public places and crowds, stay at least six feet away from others, and cover your cough or sneeze.  Wash your hands well and sanitize the surfaces of your home frequently (bleach works well and it’s inexpensive), especially those often touched. Teach your children proper handwashing techniques and send them to school with hand sanitizer. Practice good hygiene and make sure you do the best you can to keep your immune system running on all cylinders.

If this becomes a pandemic, you’ll want to make sure you have stored extra food and water to keep from having to go to the grocery store often.

containment not possible Coronavirus deadly death toll Epidemic Flu global outbreak Headline News Health illness Infections Intelwars People rate Scientists symptoms Transmission Virus

Harvard Scientist: “The Coronavirus Will Infect 70% of Humanity”

A scientist at Harvard University is predicting the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, will infect 70% of humanity. Marc Lipsitch is predicting the coronavirus “will ultimately not be containable” and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity.

The Atlantic reported that a vaccine is still years away, so it’ll also be useless in stopping the spread of the coronavirus.  He also says that we shouldn’t be alarmed by these numbers because most of those infected won’t have severe illnesses or even show symptoms at all, which is already the case for many people who have tested positive for the virus.  This will likely hold true unless the virus mutates into a more deadly and severe form.

This seems to go without saying, that you still don’t want to get this coronavirus.  Much like the flu, it isn’t likely to kill you, but it definitely could.

Simple Prepper Hacks To AVOID Getting The Flu

But the fact that most people don’t show any symptoms of the virus is why Lipsitch feels like this is simply not containable. There’s also an emerging consensus that the outbreak will eventually morph into a new seasonal disease, which, per The Atlantic, could one day turn “cold and flu season” into “cold and flu and COVID-19 season.”

While scientists everywhere try to get the upper hand when it comes to fighting this outbreak, it’s proven difficult. Scientists do say that the coronavirus is not expected to mutate quickly, and if it does, it probably won’t become more deadly. Viruses, like parasites, want to survive, and killing everyone they infect is not the way to go about surviving.

The WHO said on Monday that the COVID-19 outbreak was not out of control globally and does not have a large-scale death toll, so it was “too early” to speak of a pandemic, according to a report by Reuters.

Bahrain China Coronavirus Death Epidemic face masks Headline News Intelwars Jennifer Zeng oman outbreak pandemic South Korea spreading Stocks Transmission WHO World Health Organization

Stocks Slide As CDC Confirms 53 Cases In The US

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Summary:

  • Stocks slide as CDC releases new US case numbers
  • Italy reports 7th death, 200+ confirmed cases
  • WHO says outbreak not yet a ‘pandemic’
  • First cases reported in Oman, Bahrain
  • WHO kowtows to China in statement
  • Wuhan issues order to loosen lockdown, then U-turns
  • NHC says outbreak is fading, though situation remains “grim”
  • China approves crackdown on wildlife trade after WHO says virus likely came from bats
  • Iranian lawmaker says more than 50 deaths in Qom; officials say 12
  • Hong Kong bars South Koreans
  • more cases reported in SK

* * *

Update (1220ET): US stocks took another leg lower, falling to their lowest levels of the session with the Dow down 1,000 points, following the latest headlines out of the CDC confirming 39 cases of the virus have been detected among the rest of the ~300 individuals from the ‘Diamond Princess’.

The CDC reportedly opposed the State Department’s decision to allow 14 individuals who were confirmed to be infected to travel on the evac flight after their cases were confirmed just before takeoff, thanks to one of the many botched, drop-the-ball moments attributed to Japanese health officials.

This is exactly what they warned about: In addition to the 14 people who were already infected, it appears another 25 were infected on the flight back – where the sick individuals were separated by the rest using duct tape and a thin tarp-like sheet.

That brings total US cases to 53.

Meanwhile, the CD isolated 14 cases outside those who caught the virus aboard the DP.

  • U.S. CDC SAYS 14 CONFIRMED CASES OF COVID-19 AS OF FEB. 24, 39 CASES AMONG THOSE REPATRIATED TO U.S.

Six of these cases are believed to be in San Antonio, according to local press reports.

* * *

Update (1215ET): Just figured we’d point out: While WHO warns that there’s nothing to fear, Beijing is trying to force its population back to work after six provinces outside Hubei lowered their emergency ratings earlier.

That push has led to more scenes like this one:

* * *

Update (1115ET): Shortly before it voted to postpone its annual national congress, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress in China passed legislation approving a crackdown on the illegal wildlife trade on Monday.

Though SJWs have insisted that criticizing Chinese practices like eating ‘bat soup’ is ‘racist’, WHO scientists warned Monday morning that initial research suggests that the virus was transmitted to the first human cases via consumption of a bat, or possibly a pangolin that had been exposed to the virus via a bat, WaPo reports.

We published an explainer about how the wildlife trade, which has been illegal on paper for years, managed to flourish in the Chinese countryside as a king of grey market due to its immense profitability.

Now, it appears local farmers will be forced to return to growing crops, a far less lucrative trade than hawking bats and snakes, apparently.

* * *

Update (1015ET): As the White House prepares to request an emergency spending package from Congress as soon as this week – a package that could seek close to $1 billion, as we’ve previously noted – WHO’s Dr. Tedros said during the organization’s Monday morning press briefing that the outbreak isn’t yet a true “pandemic” because the world hasn’t seen “large-scale deaths”.

That’s right: On the same morning that the Chinese government is marching people back to work, warning them that if they get infected, they’re on their own, as if the entire country was one giant concentration camp, the WHO – which has repeatedly run interference for the regime – is insisting that the outbreak isn’t really that bad.

The cases in Italy and South Korea are definitely concerning he said, but are we seeing an uncontrolled outbreak? No.

An Iranian lawmaker just blew the whistle on some 50 deaths in Iran, and now suddenly cases are popping up all over the Middle East and Europe, and the situation isn’t really that bad.

But Tedros says we’re not witnessing “uncontained global spread” and that “using the word pandemic does not fit the facts. We must focus on containment while preparing for a potential pandemic.”

All nations battling the outbreak should prioritize three areas, Dr. Tedros added. These include the safety of hospital workers, communities most at risk like the elderly, and others with co-occurring health conditions.

“This is a shared threat,” Tedros said. “We can only face it together, and we can only overcome it together.”

This comes nearly one month after the WHO declared the outbreak a global public health emergency.

And this is what the curve looks like for cases outside China:

Confirmed cases in Italy:

Confirmed cases in South Korea:

Nothing to see here, gentlemen. Please, focus on the excellent dip-buying opportunity in front of you.

Finally, repeating some of his florid praise from the early days of the outbreak, Tedros said: “other countries need to learn from China’s response”. Which we presume means that medieval lockdown is the way to go – but if you can tweak one thing, maybe try to get on top of the situation a little sooner.

Meanwhile, as Stars & Stripes reported earlier, US soldiers in South Korea are doing everything in their power to prevent an outbreak on an American base – a huge risk for US national security officials and the Pentagon – after the widow of a retired soldier who recently visited stores on a base in the southeastern part of South Korea.

* * *
Update (1000ET): Following this morning’s WHO circle-jerk, where the team of foreign doctors and experts refused to challenge Beijing’s narrative despite widespread skepticism and criticism of the government’s early decision to censor information about the outbreak, the Global Times editor-in-chief has just declared that the “risk of the virus spreading widely in China” has passed.

Sound believable?

* * *

Update (0925ET): ANSA reports a 7th death in Italy as the situation looks increasingly grim.

Here’s the latest chart:

* * *

Update (0910ET): The coronavirus is already forcing Iranians to tweak certain practices, including their daily greetings.

Meanwhile, the first indications that the virus has already spread from Iran to some of its regional neighbors have already emerged: Oman has reported the first two confirmed coronavirus cases. The two cases are individuals who recently visited Iran.

This follows Bahrain reporting its first case overnight.

* * *

Update (0835ET): As the WHO team wrapped up its Monday press conference with what was essentially tantamount to a global confidence-building exercise in China’s response, a senior official from China’s National Health Commission said the coronavirus risk from Wuhan had gone ‘way down.’

Of course, if that’s true, then why did officials cancel a planned easing of the lockdown?

The official added that China has managed to stop the ‘rapid rise’ of infections in Wuhan, though they haven’t stopped the epidemic yet, and that the situation remains “grim and complex” – as President Xi said over the weekend.

Meanwhile, over in Italy, ANSA reports that a sixth person has died.

Even more alarming for futbal fans across the country: Four Serie A matches were postponed on Sunday, while others on Saturday went ahead.

* * *

When American traders logged off on Friday, they might have noticed a few suspicious headlines out of Italy reporting a sudden spike in cases. But anybody who spent the weekend away from their desks and Twitter might be surprised to find that Europe’s third-largest economy is now host to a genuine crisis.

As we reported over the weekend, more than a dozen towns in Lombardy – the hardest hit region with 167 confirmed cases and 4 deaths – are on complete lockdown. According to the latest update, there are now 219 confirmed cases in Italy, as well as five deaths.

Angelo Borrelli, head of the country’s civil protection agency, said Monday during a press briefing that another 91 people are currently in isolation inside their homes.

Following the weekend spike,  Italy’s neighbors are getting nervous. Austria is exploring border controls, though Germany said Monday that it’s not currently considering closing its borders with Italy, an obvious attempt by the de facto leader of the EU to try and quell a continent-wide panic.

Elsewhere, more countries are tightening restrictions on South Korea. Hong Kong on Monday declared that it would stop non-residents from South Korea from entering Hong Kong.

This has sparked a bemused response from Hong Kongers on twitter:

A recent poll showed that a majority of the people in Hong Kong don’t trust the data provided by the Chinese government or the WHO.

* * *

In Italy, it seems like most of the dead fit the profile of elderly patients with co-occurring health problems. One of the two most recent deaths was reported to be a man from the village of Val Alzano Lombardo. He died at the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo, near Milan. The hospital said the 83-year-old man (reports on his age differ) had a serious underlying health problem, but it didn’t specify what it was, according to CNN.

As WHO officials finished off preparations for their big press conference Monday morning, Beijing announced that it would delay the National People’s Congress, which had been set for early March. The move was telegraphed by leaked media reports well in advance.

Officials said Monday the key political meetings, originally due to take place from March 5, would be rescheduled. Analysts said the government in Beijing was worried about the optics of holding a large-scale public event while millions are living under lockdown. We agree – that would not be a good look for the CCP right now, especially after all of those videos of police rounding up violators of the lockdown who were probably just trying to find something to eat.

President Xi said one day earlier that China is in a “crisis” that would inevitably impact the country’s economy. But whatever the fallout, he promised it would be brief and manageable.

Following the departure of the WHO team from Wuhan, local authorities made an extraordinary decision: all of a sudden, the cities’ most senior officials announced a loosening of the city’s lockdown. Millions rejoiced.

But they were soon disappointed: Because three hours later, the order was reversed, we assume after Beijing caught wind of it.

According to the SCMP, the retracted announcement was issued by a ‘subordinate working group’ that didn’t have official approval from their superiors. The individuals responsible will be ‘reprimanded’. The lockdown has been in effect since Jan. 23.

The order would have allowed non-residents with no symptoms and no contact with infected patients to leave, a decision that would have freed thousands of foreign students.

In other news, Guangdong, China’s second worst-hit province, has downgraded its level of alert, with local officials saying the outbreak has mostly been contained to Hubei.

As we reported last night, figures released early Monday in China reported 409 new cases of the novel coronavirus and 150 new deaths from the outbreak on Sunday. That brings the total number of confirmed cases to 77,150, with a death toll of 2,592 (which will be higher if the Iran deaths are confirmed). The majority of new cases, 398, were in Hubei.

In Israel, PM Benjamin Netanyahu is fighting for his political future in a critical upcoming election that could see him jailed if he doesn’t hang on to power. So the heavy-handed measures to contain foreigners suspected of carrying the virus are hardly a surprise. In the latest step to contain the virus, Israel will send hundreds of East Asian nationals back to their home countries in the coming days, according to the Israel Airport Authority.

While Iran remains the epicenter of the outbreak in the Middle East, and several neighbors have already closed their borders, the first confirmed case was detected in Bahrain overnight.

Now, just imagine if Trump did that.

Vietnamese airline Bamboo Airways is suspending all flights to South Korea starting from Feb. 26.

In closing, we bring you comments made by Warren Buffett in an interview with CNBC, a clip of which was released on Monday. The ‘Oracle of Omaha’ said the virus is ‘scary stuff’. But it shouldn’t impact humans’ decisions about whether to buy or sell stocks, Buffett said, alluding to the old Ben Graham axiom that stocks should be bought and held based on the fundamental value of the underlying company.

But as twitter’s Mark Spiegel joked, Buffett’s remarks had an unexpected connotation:

Humans don’t buy stocks anymore, dummy!

Coronavirus Cases Surge: Pandemic Becomes More Likely As Cases Jump In Italy

Source: MSN

The coronavirus outbreak is inching closer to becoming a pandemic.  Italy has seen cases surge and now reports one death as global infections continue to rise. Authoritative containment efforts have not been effective to this point.

Authorities are struggling to contain and understand the outbreak in countries that have had a surge in infections, such as South Korea, Italy, and Iran.  Infected cases have skyrocketed and have increased over 2,000 percent in the past couple of weeks, according to a report by Fox News.  Italy is considered the site of Europe’s first major outbreak and the largest outside of Asia. The number of infected cases jumped to 152, compared to just three 10 days ago.

Italy’s outbreak is of concern to many health officials.  The country has seen 110 cases in Milan, which is its financial district and Venice, known as a famous hub for tourists throughout the world. The possibility of spreading the virus from a tourist destination like Venice to the entire globe is now possible. Events and soccer matches were canceled in the country, while some of its movie theatres were reportedly shuttered, including Milan’s legendary La Scala.

“We are worried about the situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran and in Italy,” World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference in Stockholm via a video link.

Food and water provisions should be made before this virus has a chance to become a pandemic, if at all possible. Face masks may help, however, avoiding the general public is the best chance at the prevention right now.  Make sure your first aid kit is up to par and that you are able to care for yourself or a sick family member if need be.  Quarantining on your own may be the best advice yet. It’s times like this that I like to say “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  If you can prevent the contraction of the virus (and transmission to your family members), that will be your best chance. However, if you do get sick, you will want to be prepared for the long haul, especially in hospitals fill up in the event that this virus becomes a pandemic.

CDC Prepares For The “LIKELY” Spread of Coronavirus, And Pandemic

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is finally warning the United States citizenry that the coronavirus will “likely” spread and will be labeled a pandemic. This news comes as South Korea and Iran deal with the outbreak and the World Health Organization cautions that “the window of opportunity is narrowing” for containing the outbreak worldwide.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters Friday that U.S. health officials have begun preparing for the coronavirus to become a pandemic. “We’re not seeing community spread here in the United States, yet, but it’s very possible, even likely, that it may eventually happen,” she said. “Our goal continues to be slowing the introduction of the virus into the U.S. This buys us more time to prepare communities for more cases and possibly sustained spread.”

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME (QUARANTINE) FOR A PANDEMIC

Preparations on the individual level have already begun for some, and many are double-checking their supplies just in case. Wearing a snug-fitting face mask, improving handwashing techniques, and boosting your immune system are just a few suggestions to prevent contraction and transmission of this virus.

Messonnier said that  CDC is working with state and local health departments “to ready our public health workforce to respond to local cases.” These measures include collaboration with supply chain partners, hospitals, pharmacies, and manufacturers to determine what medical supplies are needed.

At the time of this writing, there have been 79,737 cases (perhaps more; China may not be accurately reporting) and 2,627 deaths.

The director-general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who says he’s alarmed by the recent spread of the coronavirus from Iran, warned Friday that while the chance to contain the virus globally still exists, “the window of opportunity is narrowing.”

“We still have a chance to contain it, but we have to prepare for other eventualities,” said Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “This could go in many directions, it could be even messy. It is in our hands now … we can reverse or avert a serious crisis. If we don’t, if we squander this opportunity, then there could be a serious problem on our hands.”

Most Americans Are Not Taking This Coronavirus Outbreak Seriously, And That Is Potentially Very Dangerous

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

We still don’t know if this coronavirus outbreak will become a horrific worldwide pandemic or not, but what we have seen so far is definitely very alarming.  People have literally been dropping dead in the streets, the Chinese government has locked down major city after major city, and the virus kept spreading very rapidly on a cruise ship off the coast of Japan even though a strict quarantine was instituted.

Scientists that have studied the virus are telling us that it “could be 20 times more lethal than the flu”, and it binds to human cell receptors much more easily than the SARS virus did.  Unfortunately, because the epicenter of this crisis is on the other side of the globe, most Americans are simply not paying much attention to it.  In fact, most of the people that my wife and I have been talking to and hearing from don’t think that the coronavirus is much of a threat to the United States at all.

And if the coronavirus does start to become a problem in this country, a new survey has found that most Americans are quite confident that the government can handle it

More than three in four Americans say they are very confident or somewhat confident in the US federal government’s ability to handle a coronavirus outbreak, a Gallup poll has found, a higher level of confidence than in previous health scares.

Gallup said the results were from a February 3 to February 16 poll that began just days after the Trump administration announced it would suspend entry of foreign nationals who had been to China in the previous two weeks.

Hopefully, this coronavirus outbreak will not explode in North America and our normal lives will not be disrupted.

But considering what is happening over in Asia, it would definitely be prudent to take some precautions.  Unfortunately, most Americans are not really doing much of anything to prepare for a potential pandemic at this point.

If a pandemic does not materialize, that won’t be a problem.  But if this virus starts spreading like wildfire in the U.S., we are going to have a massive crisis on our hands.

The time to stop an outbreak from happening is at the very beginning, and the lack of urgency about this virus that we are witnessing from local health officials around the country is absolutely stunning.

According to NBC News, there are thousands of Americans that are currently “under voluntary self-quarantine”.  These individuals have either recently traveled to China or they have recently had contact with someone that was infected.

As you might assume, a “voluntary self-quarantine” is not mandatory.  Instead, NBC News says that it is “strongly encouraged”

Self-quarantining isn’t mandatory, but it is strongly encouraged.

It’s up to the state and local health departments to decide how to manage residents under self-quarantine.

So anyone that doesn’t want to participate can feel free to mix with the general public as much as they want.

Isn’t that great?

And since it is “up to the state and local health departments to decide how to manage residents under self-quarantine”, there is no single set of standards that is being followed.

In other words, state and local health officials are free to make things up as they go along.

We aren’t talking about a small number of people either.  In fact, more than 5,000 people are under self-quarantine in California alone

The California Public Health Department said there are more than 5,400 such people in the state. In Washington state, 745 people have been asked to self-quarantine. Georgia health officials identified about 200 travelers.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services said more than 300 people were referred for monitoring.

All it takes is a couple of “super spreaders” to get a real good outbreak going, and to see such a lack of concern about preventing the spread of this disease is quite disheartening.

And this lackadaisical attitude has even extended to actual victims that have been confirmed to have the virus.  The CDC specifically warned against putting infected people on the same flight with non-infected people, but the U.S. government did it anyway

Fourteen Americans who tested positive for the Coronavirus were flown back to the US on a flight with over 300 people who were not infected, despite objections from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The flight was filled with people who were evacuated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan, which had been quarantined due to an outbreak of the virus.

Reading this sort of thing makes you want to tear your hair out.

Despite such extreme negligence, hopefully everything will be okay.  But it should be noted that the CDC is telling hospitals that now “is the time to open up your pandemic plans and see that things are in order”

“This is the time to open up your pandemic plans and see that things are in order,” Dr. Anne Schuchat, a top official of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, urged hospitals last week as an outbreak of a deadly new coronavirus ravaged much of China.

“For instance,” she continued, health-care providers need to plan for a “surge at a hospital, the ability to provide personal protective equipment for your workforce, the administrative controls and so forth that you might put place in a health care setting.”

Anyone that assumed that this crisis would be largely confined to China has been proven wrong.  At this point, we have already seen significant outbreaks erupt in several other countries in Asia.  In fact, there are now six other nations where “community spread” is taking place…

  • Japan
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

Perhaps the most notable outbreak on that list is in South Korea.  According to the Guardian, 31 brand new cases were announced on Thursday…

The South Korean city of Daegu was facing an “unprecedented crisis” after coronavirus infections that centred on a controversial “cult” church surged to 38 cases, accounting for nearly half of the country’s total.

The city of 2.5 million people, which is two hours south of the capital Seoul, was turned into a ghost town after health officials said the bulk of country’s 31 new cases announced on Thursday were linked to a branch of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus.

If we don’t want the same thing to happen here, we need to take this virus very seriously.

Unfortunately, that is simply not happening, and all of us could end up paying a great price as a result.

Chinese Doctors BEG For Face Masks Amid Coronavirus’ Continued Spread

Doctors in China are unable to adequately supply themselves with, so far, one of the best ways to prevent transmission of the coronavirus: face masks. Nurses, doctors and other medical professionals fighting the new coronavirus have also been fighting dire shortages.

While proper handwashing techniques are essential in helping slow the spread of this, and many other infections, face masks that fit tightly to the face and even goggles to protect the eyes are in short supply.  In fact, according to a report by MSN, some doctors have used tape to patch up battered protective masks, repeatedly reused goggles meant for one-time use, and wrapped their shoes in plastic bags for lack of specialized coverings.

Coronavirus: The Best Face Masks And How To Prevent Contraction Of The Virus

Other employees at hospitals near Wuhan said a lack of protective wear had left medical workers like her vulnerable, in the central Chinese city at the heart of the epidemic that has engulfed this region. “There are risks — there simply aren’t enough resources,”  Yu Yajie, an administrator at Wuhan Central Hospital, said in a brief telephone interview, adding that she was too weak to speak at length. Yu fears she may have contracted the virus due to a lack of protective gear.

After the virus emerged in Wuhan late last year, city leaders played down its risks, along with assistance from the Communist Party and the mainstream media.  So doctors didn’t take precautions. When the outbreak could no longer be ignored, officials imposed a lockdown on Wuhan that expanded across the surrounding Hubei Province and then swaths of China. The vast travel cordons may have slowed the epidemic, but have also slowed deliveries into Hubei, leaving medical workers short of protective wear.

Doctors and other hospital workers have also come under pressure not to speak out about the conditions and extent of this outbreak. But many do, out of desperation. “For the first time, I felt helpless confronting the system,” Chang Le, a doctor at Hankou Hospital in Wuhan, said in an online message pleading for more medical masks. His plea was deleted by the censors. “It’s only today that I’ve grasped just how hard it is for us front line medical workers.”

Pervasive road checks and travel restrictions have held up shipments. Factories have faced difficulty increasing production because workers and raw materials have been blocked by lockdowns. Local governments have hoarded supplies. China’s state-controlled Red Cross has dominated the distribution of donations, creating a bottleneck that infuriated hospital employees. –MSN

Top Health Official Warning: Coronavirus Is Nearing PANDEMIC Levels

A top health official is warning that the severity of the coronavirus is being understated and that it’s on the verge of hitting pandemic levels.  This news comes as 40 Americans on a cruise ship test positive for the virus.

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared on CBS News on Sunday to update viewers on the spread of the coronavirus. Fauci said that the disease did not meet the technical definition of a “pandemic” yet, but it is nearing that eventuality as it’s proven difficult to contain.  “Technically speaking, the WHO [World Health Organization] wouldn’t be calling this a global pandemic. But it certainly is on the verge of that happening reasonably soon unless containment is more successful than it is right now,” he said.

Fauci said that more than 500 cases of the infection have popped up over two dozen countries. Some of the cases have reached the second and third stages of transmission. The United States had previously confirmed 15 cases of the illness, but Fauci noted that another 40 Americans aboard the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship have tested positive for the virus.

The coronavirus outbreak began in the city of Wuhan, China, last month. Over 1,600 patients in China have died from the disease while just four patients outside mainland China have died. Several airlines and countries have placed temporary bans on flights to China to limit the spread of the virus.

Chinese officials report that well over 60,000 people in China have been infected. The Chinese government, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, is scrambling to recover from the public relations crisis the outbreak of the virus has caused. –Wasington Examiner

“Nothing short of the most comprehensive, rigorous, and thorough measures have been taken,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at an international security conference on Sunday. “China’s speed, scale, and efficiency all reflect the advantage of China’s system.”
