Forcing a COVID vaccine would violate The Nuremberg Code

When the Nazi atrocities were uncovered after World War II, where experimental procedures, drugs and vaccines were forced on unwitting subjects, the Nuremberg Code was written by American attorneys, which states,

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion.

And should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.” 

Since the data does not exist to have “sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements” of the COVID vaccine and how it will impact human beings, it violates the Nuremberg Code to force the coming vaccine on anyone.

(Many physicians claim that the covid-19 vaccine include several other dangerous viruses that will ultimately kill you since there are no remedies to them)

When you force a liability-free product on people does not increase their trust in the product or the authority that is forcing the product on them.

The PREP Act takes all liability away from the manufacturers of the vaccines. Which means that If they maim or kill anyone, no one can sue Moderna, AstraZeneca or Sanofi.

#1 – The world’s top vaccinologist says he may not take a COVID vaccine

When asked if he would take the COVID vaccine, the world’s most prominent vaccinologist Dr. Paul Offit said, “Sight unseen? No.”

Vaccinologist Dr. Peter Hotez is concerned that the coming coronavirus vaccine may cause “immune enhancement” which means the vaccine could help someone get sicker when they come in contact with the virus they were vaccinated for.

Immunologist Ian Frazer, co-inventor of the HPV vaccine has said we don’t know how to make a coronavirus vaccine, and we don’t know if any being currently developed will work.

#2 – A COVID vaccine currently does not exist

While there are currently many COVID vaccine trials, we do not know which, if any, will be safe and effective.

The top vaccinologists mentioned in reason #1 have told us there has been almost 20 years of work trying to create vaccines for coronaviruses, and every attempt to date has failed.

Immunologist Ian Frazier stated, “At the moment we don’t know how to make a coronavirus vaccine work. That’s why there are 100 vaccines under testing using every conceivable approach. We don’t know if any of them will work.”

#3 – On average a vaccine takes 7 to 15 years to come to market, not 2

The COVID vaccine will be one of the fastest vaccines ever to come to market. There can be no argument that it is an experimental treatment.

Vaccines take 7, 10, 20 even 30 years to fully develop, test for efficacy and safety, before bringing to market. The “warp speed” of 2 years means the data simply won’t exist on what the long term effects of the vaccine are, and everyone who gets the vaccine will be part of a mass experiment

#4 – The top experimental COVID vaccines have already caused adverse reactions

AstraZeneca has had a case of transverse myelitis (similar to polio) occur in a woman after she received her second COVID vaccine during experimental trials, according to CNN.

Symptoms of transverse myelitis are extremely similar to polio and can completely destroy someone’s life.

Moderna has admitted in an SEC filing that their vaccine ingredient LNP “may lead to systemic side effects related to the components of the LNP which may not have ever been tested in humans.”

Additionally their vaccine is an mRNA vaccine which has the potential to permanently alter human DNA. We don’t know this for sure, because an mRNA vaccine has never been deployed on a large population of people ever in history.

Sanofi was the company that launched the dangerous and deadly dengue yellow fever vaccine.

They took 20 years to develop that vaccine, but it ended up being a historic failure as children in the Philippines were injured and even killed by it, according to NPR.

Do you trust Sanofi to get the COVID vaccine right in a mere 2 years?

#5 – In 20 years of trying to make coronavirus vaccines, all have failed

If, as Ian Frasier tells us, no one has ever made a successful coronavirus vaccine since they tried in the early 2000s, why does anyone believe we can do it successfully in just 2 years today?

#6- The swine flu vaccine in 1976 was fast-tracked, killing and injuring thousands

The swine flu vaccine injured and killed thousands. Many people developed Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) from the swine flu vaccine, which is a horrifying condition that causes paralysis. 

60 minutes did an in-depth expose on the damage the swine flu vaccine caused thousands of Americans. History has show us it is never a good idea to speed through the process of making and deploying a vaccine.

#7 – Donald Trump has already indemnified the top 3 COVID vaccines

Moderna, AstraZeneca and Sanofi are developing what people consider the most likely vaccines to come to market. All of these vaccines have been declared countermeasures, and the PREP Act has been invoked by Donald Trump’s HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

The PREP Act takes all liability away from the manufacturers of the vaccines. If they maim or kill anyone, no one can sue Moderna, AstraZeneca or Sanofi.

The only legal compensation that may be available would come from the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. This is not a real court, but rather a program setup and run by the federal government.

#8 – COVID has a death rate under 1%

COVID-19 is a nasty illness and can be deadly, but we really need to be asking ourselves if we need a fast-tracked, risky vaccine that may do more harm than good when the death rate for COVID is below 1%.

#9 – Forcing a vaccine on the public sews distrust in authority

Right now as the conversation around the coming COVID vaccine gains momentum, the public’s trust in vaccination is dropping.

When you force a liability-free product on people that does not increase their trust in the product or the authority that is forcing the product on them. Some people are calling the coming COVID vaccine “an idea so good it has to be forced on you.”

NY Teachers Against Vaccine Mandates for Educators 

How am I spending my confinement?

Note: I am glad that I posted this article on April 26, 2020 to remind myself how I behaved then to the new emerging situation.

Since then, and in the last 2 months, I undertook to focus on “refurbishing” my home after decades of negligence, as my parents were seriously ill Painting all the house, ceiling, walls, doors, window.., repairing doors, windows… remodeling the previous “interior design“, adding my own “touch” of what makes me more comfortable and more inclined to think, work, “produce”…

Kind of trying to refresh whatever “passions” I might have bottled up since childhood and snatching my “rights” to have my own corner in the “space

That would be since last week of February.

Our building is of 3 floors and a ground floor (now split in two for my married nephews). My parents, as most parents in Lebanon and the Near East, think of keeping all their children in one location in the future. Bad idea since it barely works to keep any sense of harmony among adults.

On January 31st, my mother passed away after one week in intensive care and my aunt also passed away 2 weeks later, in coma and in the ICU. 

Sort of most elderly over 90 have no longer any chance to survive any ICU, and that was before the Covid-19 pandemics was revealed.

We order online products from the nearest supermarket. Since I sold my car many years ago, and refrained from borrowing any car, my nephew used to ask me what he could buy me when he drives away. That lasted 2 weeks, and then everyone forgot about me.

The delivered bags are left outside the main building door until each one get out and alcohol spray the external bags and then the inner bags and eventually the inner-inner bags…

We ran out of potable water that we fill our 10 L gallons plastic containers from a running source in the town of Beit Chabab.

My brother-in-law insisted that I join him to help him fill 20 of these gallons.

He is a retired officer from the army, and I guess he receives detailed procedure on how to disinfect everything.

Consequently, Victor spays alcohol around the floor of the water source and I have to carry the filled gallon straight to the car trunk without letting them touch the ground…

A couple of youth came by and washed their faces after jogging, and the disinfection had to restart from scratch.

Before entering the car, I had to stretch my feet outside so that alcohol is sprayed on my shoes.

The funny part is that I had to spray the 4 tires, on the ground that kids play in the parking lot. Go figure.

My sister came from London on the last airplane before closing the airport and she stayed 2 weeks in total confinement on the rooftop.

After her confinement was over, my sister cleaned up her apartment for an entire week, for hours each day ,until she got backache, and then moved down to my apartment to totally clear up all the accumulated junk that my parents, her daughters and herself stored for over 50 years.

Actually, I had cleared up for an entire month loads of junks after mother had a hip surgery 2 years ago.

Although I had hired a helper to clear pathways among the junks on all balconies and in the dining room in order to be able “travel” around, I ended up with a hernia and had to submit to a surgery a few months later.

Yes, I cleared junks just to make pathways in order to move around in the house and the balconies.

I could do that because my brother-in-law (who is responsible for most of the junks and who refrain from throwing out any useless “object”), was oversea visiting one of his daughters.

The worst part is that he goes ramage in the bags on the curve and we end up with many bags in the garden, on the rooftop and on the stairs leading to the rooftop.

The funny part that highly exacerbate me is when he asks me about a junk part that he “needs” and I have to repeat: “Man, you denied me the joy of stepping out into my garden. Go dig deeper into your trash of junks”. An open air warehouse of junks.

You have no idea what people accumulate in their lifetime, objects that they never used and still believe they might get around to using them.

In the USA, they throw Yard Sales in summer time. We didn’t even got this idea to start with, even once in a lifetime.

Right now, we have 40 extra large bags of fine clothes that have barely been used once, and increasing by the days, with the decision to dispose of them later on, one way or another.

My sister and I reserved my parents sleeping room to “store” these bags.

These bags are deposited on one of the beds and waiting for us to figure out how to dispose of them. Nobody care to pick up clothes, retrieve them and distribute them for the time being, (but conditions will quickly change after the massive atomic explosion in the Port of Beirut).

Actually, my brother-in-law has rented a large warehouse to “sell clothes” after he retired and is still spending more money on this failing “business” than on his family, cars and raising chicken…

He turned out to be just one of those sick persons who hoard stuff and never let go off, Not even selling them. Actually, when a buyer shows up, he raises the price so high so that he doesn’t has to relinquish the object.

Yes, there is this old honda car of 1980 that has been parked for years and nobody is willing to drive it anymore. And yet, this person refuses to sell it and is still occasionally spending money on repairing it.

Our garden has turned into an open “warehouse” of total junks and debris and this person wouldn’t let us clear the garden to make any good use of it.

Besides the extra large bags of great clothes, we gathered 70 extra large bags of good clothes to be left on the curb for the municipality to take as waste. My sister considers to be shameful to give away these 70 bags.

Since the municipality will Not load in its Friday truck that quantity of bags, we have to deposit on the curve about 6 bags a week. Do the math for how long we need to dispose of these bags.

I spread this joke that my nephews need to take videos of the newly cleared and re-designed house.

The joke was that my comfort style will return the house to its original status, after all this revamping and I will clutter the house according to my style of “comfort zones”

My sister got furious and declared that she will not set foot again. The next day, my sister was back to “finish her job

What of people who refuse to wear great fashionable clothes on the ground they look Not “A la Mode” and prefer to buy expensive new clothes that are way beneath the quality and beauty of the older-kinds of clothes?

In the meanwhile, my project is to re-edit and update my old articles, verging on the 9,500 posts, on my blog, and recollecting the wonderful trekking and adventures that I joined my nephews and nieces around Lebanon.

Yes, I created a sub-category “Travel/Adventure” for that task.

Note: The first generation relatives opened a net group to share their confinement conditions. A couple days later 3 people “left” and now barely 4 people continue to post “Bonjour/Good morning”. I prefer to post “Mar7aba/Saba7 el Khair” when I wake up in the morning.

This article was posted in October 2014 by Ricken Patel. Just a reminder of our Covid-19 pandemics and how the world community is fighting it.

Ebola, Covid-19…: Pandemics vs People

Ebola could threaten us all, and the most urgent need to stop it is for volunteers.
If just 120 doctors among us volunteer, it will *double* the number of doctors in Sierra Leone. Other volunteers – in health, sanitation, logistics – can help too.
This is a call to serve humanity in the deepest possible way, to accept serious risk for our fellow human beings.

Three weeks ago, hundreds of thousands of us went offline to fight climate change. This week, we’re going offline to help stop Ebola.

The Ebola virus is spiraling out of control. Cases in West Africa are doubling every 2-3 weeks and the latest estimate says that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by mid-January.

Talking about exponential growth is frightening

At that scale, this monster threatens the entire world.

I just read that the UN has only $100,000 in its fund for the Ebola outbreak

Mind you that AIDS harvest over 1.5 million each year (as much as Malaria and Dysentery combined).

Though, malaria is the number one disease followed by dysentery that put heavy burden on the States in Africa and Equatorial countries.

Previous Ebola outbreaks have been repeatedly contained at small numbers. But the scale of this epidemic has swamped the region’s weak health systems.

Liberia has less than 1 doctor for every 100,000 people. Governments are providing funds, but there just aren’t enough medical staff to stem the epidemic.

That’s where we come in.

If just 120 doctors among us volunteer, it will *double* the number of doctors in Sierra Leone.

Other volunteers can help too — lab technicians, logisticians, water and sanitation workers, and transport workers. Volunteering means more than time. It means risk.

Health professionals have already died fighting Ebola.

But if there’s any group of people that would consider taking this risk for their fellow human beings, it’s our community.

Great things come from listening to the deepest voices within us.

If you’re a health professional, or have other skills that can help, I ask you to take a moment, listen to the part of you that you most trust, and follow it.

Raising your hand to volunteer is the first step.

You’ll need to get, and provide, a lot of information to ensure you’re well matched to an available position. You will likely need to discuss this decision with your loved ones, and you can withdraw from the process later if you choose to.

For this effort, Avaaz is working with Partners In Health, Save the Children, and International Medical Corps, three of the leading organisations fighting this deadly disease.

We are also consulting with the governments of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, and the World Health Organization.

While there is substantial risk, there are also clear ways to contain that risk. 

Ebola is spread through bodily fluids, so with extreme care, the risk of contracting it can be minimized.

So far, 94 health care workers have died of Ebola in Liberia, but almost all of them have been national health workers, who are far less well equipped than international volunteers. 

With treatment, the chances of surviving the virus are better than 50%.

Many of us, from police to activists to soldiers, have jobs that involve risking our lives for our country.

It’s the most powerful statement we can make about what’s worth living for. Taking this risk to fight Ebola, makes a statement that our fellow human beings, wherever they are, are worth living for:

If Ebola spirals further out of control, it could soon threaten us all. The fact that a weak health care system in a small country can let this monster grow to a size that threatens the world is a powerful statement of just how interdependent we are. But this interdependence is far more than just interests.

We are connected, all of us, in a community of human beings.

All the lies that have divided us – about nation and religion and sexuality – are being torn down, and we are realizing that we really are one people, one tribe. 

That a young mother and her daughter in Liberia fear the same things and love the same things as a young mother and her daughter in Brazil, or the Netherlands.

And in this unfolding understanding, a new world is being born.

Out of the darkest places come our brightest lights.

Out of the depths of the Ebola nightmare, let’s bring the hope of a new world of one people, willing to give, and sacrifice, for each other.

With hope and determination,

Ricken, John, Alice, Danny, and the whole Avaaz team.

Covid-19: Faked information and simple avoidance and treatment recommendations

Covid-19 is Not a cell but a series of RNA that cannot survive outside a living environment. Thus, dead people cannot test positive for Covid-19 in order to test the family members.

Avoid taking Cortisone, Cetamol, Azitromycine… any products (sugar, proteine…) that disturb the natural function of the liver or tax its proper job of increasing the temperature and strengthen the immune system.

It takes 5 days for the liver to stabilize the condition of the patient when in confinement. Being sent to a hospital might aggravate the condition of the patient, as a last resort.

منقول مقالة طبية هامة . بقلم السيد الدكتور Jehad Shabboh

الهيستريا الاعلامية العالمية بلغت حدا خطيرا على الجميع – ولايمكن السباحة بعكس التيار – لذلك فضلت ان اعرض ما أعرفه من حقيقة على اصدقائي بالحد الادنى عسى ان احميهم من المخاطر المحتملة .

لمحة عن الفيروس : يشبه بتركيبه فيروسات الانفلونزا الموسمية – اقل فوعة – واسرع انتشارا – وككل الفيروسات فهو غير قادر على البقاء الا في الانسجة الحية – ويموت بعد مغادرتها بثواني –

لذلك التوصية بمسافة مترين عن المصاب وهي المدة التي يستغرقها الفيروس حيا قبل مصادفة مضيف جديد – وتتم العدوى حصرا عن طريق التنفس ووصول الفيروس للجهاز التنفسي للمضيف .

بعد موت المريض يموت الفيروس فورا – بسبب عدم توفر النسيج الحي – اي ان المرض المتوفى غير معدي .

الفيروس عبارة عن سلسلة من RNA – ليس خلية – وليس قادرا على الحياة بالطبيعة خارج المضيف الحي كما تفعل الجراثيم.
مالذي تم ترويجه اعلاميا ؟

أشيع اعلاميا عن منظمة الصحة العالمية ان الفيروس يعيش على السطوح الصلبة مدة 12 ساعة – والاقمشة 9 ساعات – والايدي ساعتين – مع ملاحظة التناقض في المعلومات .
وهذه المعلومات كاذبة جملة وتفصيلا – وذهبت المنظمات المدنية الى حد محاولة تعقيم الشوارع والجدران والحدائق وغيرها بمنتهى السذاجة – بقناعة تواجد الفيروس .

ما حقيقة انتشار الفيروس حاليا؟

حسب الاحصائيات التي تعرفونها – فالعدد المثبت بتحليل pcr يفوق 20 مليون بالعالم – وهذا العدد يشكل نسبة ضئيلة جدا من المرضى المشتبه اصابتهم او كانت اصابتهم خفيفة وبقوا في منازلهم دون مراجعة المشافي .
ماذا يعني ذلك؟

يعني بكل بساطة ان جميع الناس اصيبو بالفيروس الذي هو اسرع انتشارا من الكريب – وكلنا نعلم ان الجميع اصيبو بالكريب يوما ما .
اما عن الوفيات :

تم التصريح عن ارقام كاذبة – وتم تسجيل اعداد كبيرة من الوفيات على ان المسبب فيروس كورونا بينما كانت الوفيات لاسباب اخرى – ومنهم من كانو زملاءنا و اصدقاءنا ونعرف اسباب وفاتهم الحقيقية .

لكن كنا نتفاجئ بنشر اخبار مضللة على وسائل التواصل دون معرفة الهدف .

علاج الفيروس :

أود طمئنة الجميع أن الشفاء من الاصابة سهل – وقد تمر الاصابة بشكل خفيف ويحصل الشفاء العفوي دون تشخيص المرض .
علميا لاعلاج دوائي للفيروس في الاسواق – المناعة وحدها هي الكفيلة بالقضاء عليه.

المطلوب تقوية المناعة – وهي تتشكل في الكبد بعد اليوم الخامس تقريبا للاصابة.

يحتاج المريض للتهوية الجيدة – الرياضة – تحسين الحالة النفسية – اكثار سوائل – دفء – حمية غذائية فقيرة بالمشتقات الحيوانية والدسمة والسكاكر – وغنية بالفينامينات ومضادات الاكسدة والارجاع ومثالها : قرنفل – قرفة – كمون – ليمون – برتقال – اناناس – حبق – نعنع … وغيرها – مع الانتباه لكونها نيئة غير مطبوخة لان المواد الفاعلة ضمنها تموت بالحرارة.

ومن مبادئ علم الفيروسات المحافظة على راحة الكبد بعدم اعطاء الادوية ذات الاستقلاب الكبدي

وينصح اصلا بعدم اعطاء اي ادوية – ويتربع ( السيتامول ) على عرش الادوية المخربة للكبد – وتعتبر الجرعة القاتلة للانسان الطبيعي 10 غرام – واقل منها للمريض الضعيف – ويستطيع اي منكم الحصول على هذه المعلومات عبر النت من الاف المواقع العلمية – وليس عبر الاقنية الفضائية.

الكارثة اليوم :

هي البروتوكول العلاجي المتبع من منظمة الصحة العالمية لعلاج الاصابة – وبالتالي متبع لدينا – والخطأ القاتل في طريقة تطبيقه .
البروتوكول يتضمن :

1 – كورتيزون : وهو القاتل الاول – لكونه الدواء الخافض للمناعة – ومن بديهيات علم الفيروسات تحريم استعماله بتاريخ الطب حتى زمن الكورونا
2 – سيتامول : وقد تحدثنا عن خطورته بسبب تخريبه للكبد
3 – ازيترومايسين : قاتل جراثيم ضعيف لايؤثر على الفيروسات بتاتا – مع احتمال اذية الكبد

سوف يسأل احدكم كيف نخفض الحرارة ؟
الحرارة يتم انتاجها بالكبد كرد فعل طبيعي للدفاع عن الجسم – لاداعي لتخفيض الحرارة الا في خال الاختلاجات – السوائل تكفي – وعند الضرورة يتم تخفيض الحرارة لمرة واحدة فقط .

ما لذي يحدث اليوم :

يبدأ اغلب الزملاء ( وليس الكل طبعا ) بتطبيق هذا البروتوكول للمريض فور التشخيص او الشك – ولن اذكر هنا مسيرة القصص المرضية للمرضى المقبولين في المشافي ومراكز العزل ونتائج العلاج لأنها مختلفة حسب حالة المريض ومناعته –

لكني سأذكر معلومة تعرفونها جميعا دون الانتباه اليها وهي : ان جميع الوفيات حصلت في المشافي ومراكز العزل – ولم تذكر حالة وفاة واحدة لمريض مشخص او مشتبه مع بقائه في منزله –

علما ان اعداد المصابين الذين التزمو المنزل اكثر بأضعاف مضاعفة .
ارجو منكم جميعا الحذر الشديد من تطبيق هذا البروتوكول – والمحافظة على المناعة الجيدة و اساليب الوقاية واهمها التباعد الاجتماعي .
أنا أعلم تماما صعوبة الاقتناع بما سبق – وصعوبة معاكسة السيل الجارف من المعلومات المضللة من خلال وسائل الاعلام – وانجرار الكثير من الزملاء العاملين بالحقل الطبي خلف الهيستريا العالمية – ونسيان كل مادرسناه في كلياتنا من قواعد اساسية متصلة .


Another shut down due to COVID-19: San Francisco Bay Area and Lebanon

Santa Clara County Executive Dr. Jeff Smith stated, “The only treatment we have now is shelter-in-place.”

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) — As of Friday, COVID-19 cases rose in more than 40 states. The CDC is forecasting there could be 175,000 deaths by August 15.

For the second day in a row, California reported a record daily number of deaths.

The state has more than 435,000 cases and a 7-day test positivity average of 7.9- percent.
(Positive testing need to be brought down to less than 2% for any re-opening to normal life)

Among the signatories is them, Dr. Travis Porco. He’s a professor with the Francis I. Proctor Foundation for Research in Ophthalmology at UCSF.

“I believe everybody that signed that, endorses that, and sees this crisis for what it is- a crisis that’s not gotten any better,” Porco explained. “It’s only gotten worse.”

The letter came with the warning, “If you don’t take these actions, the consequences will be measured in widespread suffering and death.”

Dr. Porco adding America’s struggle to contain the virus is evident on the world stage.

“I think we’ve already failed in comparison to many countries,” he explained. “We’ve seen many countries act swiftly and efficiently to crush the pandemic. They’re reopening and they’re doing fine. We didn’t. We couldn’t do that.”

Additionally, State Senator Steve Glazer recently introduced a proposal that would require residents to once again shelter-in-place. His vision would keep residents across the state doing so until the rate of positive tests over two weeks dips below two-percent.

“If our objective is to kill this virus, a shelter-in-place, as difficult as it will be- is the medicine we need to take,” Glazer told ABC7 News.

“Unfortunately, we reopened too soon, and people didn’t respect the need to create physical distancing in their regular conduct of life,” he continued. “That has meant that infection rates continue to go higher, and higher, and higher. Hospitalizations are at record levels. People who have died, record levels.”

San Jose was recently named as one of 12 cities being tracked by the feds as COVID-19 cases rise.

County Executive Dr. Jeff Smith addressing what it would take to stop the spread.

“The only treatment we have now is shelter-in-place,” he told ABC7 News.

“So, a very vigorous effort at social distancing on a statewide level would be very effective in knocking down the spread of the virus and decreasing the amount of the virus in the community.”

He continued, “It doesn’t have to mean closing down a bunch of businesses. There are lots of businesses that can operate with social distancing by using certain protocols. But it does mean getting people to wear masks, to prevent gatherings, to decrease the number of people indoors, and to make sure that there is monitoring and enforcement of the rules.”

If we don’t, health experts fear inconsistent messaging, unenforced policies and push back over mask wearing can be devastating.

“There’s nothing that’s ever been less political than the coronavirus,” Dr. Porco said. “I mean, the coronavirus doesn’t care if you’re a Democrat or Republican. Or what your religion is, or what your ethnicity is. We’re just food to that thing.”

The letter also implores lawmakers to listen to the experts.

“Public health professionals have made clear that even after we’ve contained the virus by staying at home, in order to reopen American cities and towns safely, we will need:

  • – Enough daily testing capacity to test everyone with flu-like symptoms plus anyone they have been in close contact with over the last 2 weeks (at least 10 additional tests per symptomatic person). We currently have only 35-percent of the testing capacity we need to meet that threshold. The more people get sick, the more testing is required.
  • – A workforce of contact tracers large enough to trace all current cases. That’s 210,000 more contact tracers than we had in April, but the number keeps going up as infections rise. Most states are far short of the number of contact tracers they need.

In addition, we need more personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep essential workers like health professionals, emergency responders, and grocery store clerks safe.”

VIDEO: Can coronavirus particles remain airborne longer than we thought?

Some doctors are suggesting coronavirus particles remain in the air for longer than we thought after an infectious person exhales.

Porco adding, without taking action, “We don’t want to see overwhelming healthcare institutions. We don’t want to see people running out of ventilators and the sort of death and economic disruption that that’s going to cause.”

Understanding a second shutdown would be devastating for many, he explained, “I think a lot of people would love to comply with the orders, but they need to put food on the table. A lot of small businesses need help. So I think as long as we support people that we’re asking sacrifices of, people will understand.”

“We need you to lead,” experts pleaded in the open letter. “We remind you that history has its eyes on you.”

INTERACTIVE: Here’s the reopening status of every Bay Area county

If you have a question or comment about the coronavirus pandemic, submit yours via the form below or here.

There are two problems with this question.

  1. It neglects the law of large numbers; and
  2. It assumes that one of two things happen: you die or you’re 100% fine.

The US has a population of 328,200,000. If 1% of the population dies, that’s 3,282,000 people dead.

Three million people dead would monkey wrench the economy no matter what.

That more than doubles the number of annual deaths all at once.

The second bit is people keep talking about deaths.

Deaths, deaths, deaths. Only one percent die! Just one percent! One is a small number! No big deal, right?

What about the people who survive the affliction?

For every one person who dies:

  • 19 more require hospitalization.
  • 18 of those will have permanent heart damage for the rest of their lives.
  • 10 will have permanent lung damage.
  • 3 will have strokes.
  • 2 will have neurological damage that leads to chronic weakness and loss of coordination.
  • 2 will have neurological damage that leads to loss of cognitive function.

So now all of a sudden, that “but it’s only 1% fatal!” becomes:

  • 3,282,000 people dead.
  • 62,358,000 hospitalized.
  • 59,076,000 people with permanent heart damage.
  • 32,820,000 people with permanent lung damage.
  • 9,846,000 people with strokes.
  • 6,564,000 people with muscle weakness.
  • 6,564,000 people with loss of cognitive function.

That’s the thing that the folks who keep going on about “only 1% dead, what’s the big deal?” don’t get.

The choice is not “ruin the economy to save 1%.”

If we reopen the economy, it will be destroyed anyway. The US economy cannot survive everyone getting COVID-19.

Edited to add:

Wow, this answer has really blown up. Many people are asking about the sources, so here’s the basic rundown:

This model assumes that the question’s hypothetical is correct and the fatality rate is 1%.

It also assumes for the sake of argument 100% infection.

(In reality, neither of these is a perfect match to reality. The infection rate will never hit 100%, but the fatality rate in a widespread infection is likely to be greater than 1%, because health care services will be overwhelmed.)

The statistics I used in this answer were compiled from a number of different sources.

I spent quite a bit of time writing the answer. Unfortunately, I don’t have my search history in front of me, so I’ll attempt to re-compile them.

Some of the sources include:

What we know (so far) about the long-term health effects of Covid-19

Physicians have also reported an increase in inflammation of and damage to the heart muscle in Covid-19 patients. One study published in March found that out of 416 hospitalized Covid-19 patients, 19% showed signs of heart damage.

Another study from Wuhan published in January found 12% of Covid-19 patients showed signs of cardiovascular damage. Other studies have since found evidence of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle that can cause scarring, and heart failure in Covid-19 patients.

Now, physicians warn that Covid-19 survivors may experience long-lasting cardiac damage and cardiovascular problems, which could increase their risk for heart attack and stroke. Doctors also warn Covid-19 could worsen existing heart problems.

What We Know About the Long-Term Effects of COVID-19

“Some of the data that we’re getting now from the China studies, one study that was just published in JAMA Neurology showed that 36.4% of patients had neurologic issues,” said Dr. Sheri Dewan, neurosurgeon at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Illinois. “One of the review articles that came out at the end of February discussed the possibility of virus traveling into the olfactory neurons, through the olfactory bulb, and into the brain.”

Lifelong Lung Damage: A Serious COVID-19 Complication?

“Holes in the lung likely refers to an entity that has been dubbed ‘post-COVID fibrosis,’ otherwise known as post-ARDS [acute respiratory distress syndrome] fibrosis,” said Dr. Lori Shah, transplant pulmonologist at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

ARDS occurs when fluid builds up in tiny air sacs in the lungs called alveoli. This reduces oxygen in the bloodstream and deprives the organs of oxygen which can lead to organ failure.

Post-COVID fibrosis, according to Shah, is defined as lung damage that’s irreversible and can result in severe functional limitations from patients, such as cough, shortness of breath, and need for oxygen. […]

According to The Lancet, in a piece titled, “Pulmonary fibrosis secondary to COVID-19: A call to arms?,” the first series of hospitalized patients in Wuhan, China showed that 26% required intensive care and 61% of that subset developed ARDS.

What we know (so far) about the long-term health effects of Covid-19

Physicians report that patients hospitalized for Covid-19 are experiencing high rates of blood clots that can cause strokes, heart attacks, lung blockages, and other complications, Parshley reports.

For instance, physicians are seeing an uptick in strokes among young patients with Covid-19.

The blood clots also can travel to other organs, leading to ongoing health problems.

For instance, pulmonary embolisms, which occur when the clots block circulation to the lungs, can cause ongoing “functional limitations,” like fatigue, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, and discomfort when performing physical activity, Parshley reports.

Similarly, blood clots in the kidneys can cause renal failure, which can cause life-long complications.

Heart damage

Physicians have also reported an increase in inflammation of and damage to the heart muscle in Covid-19 patients. One study published in March found that out of 416 hospitalized Covid-19 patients, 19% showed signs of heart damage.

Another study from Wuhan published in January found 12% of Covid-19 patients showed signs of cardiovascular damage. Other studies have since found evidence of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle that can cause scarring, and heart failure in Covid-19 patients.

Now, physicians warn that Covid-19 survivors may experience long-lasting cardiac damage and cardiovascular problems, which could increase their risk for heart attack and stroke. Doctors also warn Covid-19 could worsen existing heart problems.

The numbers in this answer were made from extrapolations about percentages of COVID-19 long-term effects reported in a range of studies on Google Scholar, assuming a hypothetical 100% US infection rate and a 1% fatality rate.

Of course, in reality, a high infection rate would cause the mortality and comorbidity rates to skyrocket, so if anything, these numbers are conservative.

Wear your damn masks, people.

Imposture? Among us long before the emergence of Covid-19

This virus of Covid-19 is Not new, and it mutates fast into many variations, so that a vaccine can only be targeting only one form of it, like the vaccine for the winter flu.

Un professeur italien dévoile l’imposture liée au Covid-19

Par Kamel M. – Le grand professeur italien Stefano Montanari a jeté un pavé dans la mare, en dénonçant un certain nombre de contre-vérités sur le Covid-19.

Ce médecin, fort de ses quarante années d’expérience, a révélé que toutes les mesures barrières sont aussi inefficaces qu’un «grillage en bois contre les moustiques».

«Non seulement les masques, les gants et le confinement ne servent à rien contre l’épidémie, mais il n’y aura jamais de vaccin», a confié le professeur qui explique l’hécatombe qui a endeuillé son pays par l’état de délabrement général du système de santé en Italie.

«A quoi bon porter des gants qui sont un véritable foyer de virus, alors que notre peau est intelligente ?
Quant au masque, si celui qui le porte est contaminé, il devra le changer toutes les deux ou trois minutes, sinon cela ne servirait à rien», a-t-il fait savoir, en ajoutant que «quand une personne asymptomatique est informée qu’elle est atteinte du Covid-19, elle sera terrorisée et se confinera en se privant de vitamine D et verra son état psychologique se dégrader en raison de l’absence de perspectives et des craintes pour son avenir».

«Durant les dix dernières années, la médecine italienne a été détruite, des services voire des hôpitaux entiers ont été fermés», a affirmé le professeur Stefano Montanari, en soulignant que de nombreux licenciements ont été opérés dans le secteur de la santé et que le budget qui lui est alloué est allé en décroissant ces dix dernières années, sans parler de la corruption qui gangrène l’État, «si bien que ce qui revient à 10 euros ailleurs coûte le double en Italie», a-t-il dénoncé.

«Le peu d’argent qui a été consacré au secteur a été mal utilisé. Vingt-sept millions de doses de vaccin contre la grippe porcine ont fini à la poubelle alors qu’il n’y a pas de moyens pour acquérir des respirateurs», fulmine le professeur, en indiquant que «les hôpitaux italiens n’étaient pas préparés pour accueillir les malades souffrant des complications du Covid-19».

Selon lui, «c’est cette incapacité qui a rendu ce virus aussi fulgurant».

«Le problème, ce n’est pas ce virus qui existait déjà. Je ne peux pas attester qu’il a été produit en laboratoire ou est causé par les chauves-souris, mais je peux confirmer que ce virus mute si rapidement que le germe pathogène s’est propagé en Italie n’est pas le même qu’en Chine ou en Allemagne», a-t-il affirmé.

Le professeur Stefano Montanari est, par ailleurs, catégorique :

«Le nombre de morts par le coronavirus est bas et tous les autres décès sont dus à d’autres pathologies.»

«Si nous devions tester toute la population en Italie, nous constaterions que la moitié a réagi positivement au virus car ce dernier a développé un anticorps naturel et tout ce qui se dit sur le vaccin, dans ces conditions, est une imposture mondiale vu que le virus mute de façon tellement rapide qu’on ne pourra pas suivre cette mutation et mettre au point le vaccin nécessaire à chaque fois»,

Il fait remarquer, en se disant convaincu que la vaccination contre les virus à couronne «est un gros mensonge des grands groupes pharmaceutiques. Je suis certain qu’ils finiront par imposer ce nouveau vaccin à l’ensemble de la population, ce qui leur permettra d’engranger des milliards de dollars».

«Le confinement tuera plus de gens que le virus lui-même et c’est peut-être cela le but de ceux qui ont propagé la terreur sur le Covid-19», constate ce professeur italien de renom.

«Toutes les entreprises économiques sont fermées hormis les Bourses. Aussi, ces entreprises peuvent être rachetées à des prix dérisoires. Leurs heureux acquéreurs deviendront encore plus riches une fois le confinement levé», a-t-il dit.

Et de conclure :

«Je crois que tout ceci a été manigancé à des fins lucratives, car les laboratoires vont nous sortir un vaccin qu’ils présenteront comme la panacée et qui leur permettra de gagner des milliards, alors qu’il ne sera efficace que contre une seule forme de ce virus qui mute de manière furtive.»

Why Covid-19 targeting Montreal? 7th deadliest center

Why are so many people getting sick and dying in Montreal from Covid-19?

The city is at the center of the crisis in Canada and Quebec is now the seventh deadliest place in the world for daily deaths

Not this year.

Montreal, a city touted by tourist guides as “North America’s Europe” for its rich culture and joie de vivre, is Canada’s centre for Covid-19.

Of the entire country’s 70,000 cases and 5,000 deaths, the city of 2 million people has 20,000 cases and more than 2,000 deaths, or about 64% of the entire province’s death toll.

Those numbers have catapulted Quebec into an unfavourable position: it is now the seventh deadliest place in the world for daily coronavirus deaths, according to Quebec newspaper La Presse.

“We are all concerned about Montreal,” said Quebec’s premier, François Legault, on Monday, saying that the situation there was “not under control”. The gradual reopening of schools and businesses may be further delayed if Montreal can’t get its act together.

If Peter McCabe’s Empty Montreal photo project is any evidence, the city has largely obeyed stay-home orders. His streetscapes devoid of human activity show a side of Montreal almost no one sees. “The air is crystal clear. That’s not normal,” he said.

But if people are genuinely staying home, the elevated infection rate isn’t normal either.

Why are so many people getting sick and dying here?

The trends overwhelmingly point to the reality that many infected with Covid-19 are people who already experience systemic inequality, poverty and discrimination – issues that existed long before the virus, and which are now being cracked open for all to see.

First, there are the old.

A horrific exposé in the Montreal Gazette revealed that a local nursing home – known by its French initials as a CHSLD – had concealed the deaths of 31 seniors. Many of them seemed to have died after most staff abandoned the facility. Some of the seniors found alive hadn’t had water, food or a diaper change in days.

Provincial data shows about 82% of the dead lived in seniors’ residences – most of them public.

Of the total 2,003 dead in Montreal, 74% of them were over 80.  97% of them were over 60.

The CHSLD crisis continues.

According to La Presse, at least 141 CHSLDs in Montreal presently have at least one case of Covid-19, but that the government won’t say which ones. Meanwhile, the Quebec government has announced it will allow caregivers back into some CHSLDs.

The other part of Montreal’s Covid-19 story can be summed up by the case of Marcelin François, a 40-year-old Haitian asylum seeker who died in his wife’s arms inside their Montreal apartment in mid-April.

During the week, François worked in a textile factory. On Saturdays and Sundays, he worked as an orderly inside whichever CHSLD his temp agency dispatched him to that week.

He lived with his family in Montreal North, one of the poorest neighbourhoods in all of Canada.

It is a popular destination for asylum seekers – many of whom crossed the US–Canada border on foot shortly after American president Donald Trump took office. Half of the neighbourhood’s residents are members of a visible minority, and 42% are immigrants.

Like François, many asylum seekers are now working, without citizenship status, inside of Quebec’s seniors residences.

And then they’re coming home at the end of their shift, to crowded apartments they share with friends and family, inside of shoddily maintained apartment buildings.

Earlier this month, the province admitted that its effort to manage staffing shortages by moving workers around the long-term care network could be spreading the virus.

Montreal North feels the consequences of that. One in five Montrealers infected with Covid-19 are healthcare workers – none of whom are receiving danger pay.

In Montreal North, 23% are infected, said community organizer Will Prosper.

“It’s these people who are still taking care of us, when not too long ago they were the people who we wanted to kick out,” said Prosper.

Other areas of Montreal badly hit by Covid-19 share similar traits with Montreal North: low-income, large immigrant communities, many people of colour, poor quality housing.

Montreal’s Centre for Research-Action on Race Relations is demanding the federal and provincial governments collect data on the race and income level of Covid victims.

Nargess Mustapha, also a community organizer in Montreal North and the president of youth empowerment organization Hoodstock, doesn’t need data to see how Covid-19 has further entrenched existing inequalities. She’s on the ground, along with an army of young volunteers, distributing mask-and-sanitizer kits and food hampers to members of her community.

She recites a long list of reasons why Covid-19 has struck her neighbourhood so deeply: a lack of health services, inadequate transit access, people living in crowded apartments, poor relations with police – especially now that officers can hand out $1,500 fines to those not respecting self-isolation measures.

Meanwhile, 42% of homes are single-parent households, which makes things like child care for essential workers very complicated.

And, a lack of internet access makes it tough to get government aid and information being distributed almost exclusively online.

“Being able to socially distance is a sign of privilege,” Mustapha said in French, pointing out that the population density of one neighbourhood sector rivals that of New York City’s densest borough. “It’s hard to apply those rules in Montreal North

And the kids? Don’t they deserve a “Thank you ovation” for their endurance during this pandemics?

Because they’ve been locked up for more than two months, never complaining?

When we talk about heroes, there are a few very special ones that we forget “THE KIDS”.
– They accept everything.
– They are deprived of going to school.
– They can’t play with their friends anymore.
– Visiting grandparents is forbidden.
– Park outings are over.
– They stopped going shopping with their parents.
– Birthday celebrations friends no longer exist, even his own and have to accept and understand like great people.
– More activities, 💃🕺🤼🏓,, etc.
– They end up supporting adult mood and worries.

And all this without complaining because they know “out there is a disease, a virus“.
“I know mom, it’s because of the coronavirus”.
I want to thank all the kids for this!
It’s our greatest treasures that teach us every day to focus on the most important things

Note: In countries where Covid-19 is rampant abortion has almost doubled. A clear indication of lost of hope in a better future
