Stating mortality rates has long been used as a method of downplaying deaths simple because the public is not familiar with the numbers. Covid-19 will be third largest killer in the US this year, exceeded only by cancer and heart disease, 6 times the rate for both influenza and pneumonia in 2019.In China a notice is posted on doors that this family is quarantined until a certain date. No one in the family is allow out of the dwelling except to obtain food or medical needs. Any violation is to be reported. In towns or village where the virus is running out of control, the military blocks all transportation in our out. That is pretty draconian.If they aren't letting in tourists, I can't really call that open. On a different note, strange thing is we probably still have open borders with Mexico. Did you know that border crossings between mexico and the U.S. are the busiest in the WORLD! Do you know what that really means? They would never admit to it on the news or anything. But what it actually means is that there is no border. Having one would be "racist!" The hypocrites. Back before the White man even came here, those different indian tribes would outright kill anybody who encroached on their lands.China has just opened their borders to all countries except no tourist. Major cities are filled with traffic and businesses are open. However there are still parts of the country that are closed. China practices mass quarantines, that is they seal off whole cities, villages, and neighborhoods until the virus is gone. It's largely up to people to follow the preventive measure. It's pretty draconian but it seems to work.What China says doesn't make a lot of difference. Many foreign countries have diplomats and journalists working in China. If things were really bad there, surely some Chinese person or doctor would have let some of those people know about it. And I do know that over 200,000 people in the U.S. has died from it. That is bad enough. Now, would you like to talk about something that matters?How do you know exactly how many people have died from the Kung Flu Virus in China? They have not exactly been forthcoming with information. You are nothing more than a paranoid liberal hypochondriac or a paid stooge for the Democratic party or both. the only reason I have not blocked you is because you add some comic relief."Excellent article?" You mean excellent lies. More people have died from the coronavirus here in the U.S. than in China. Where it began. And they have over a billion more people! People need to start to panic!!! Instead of quietly lying down to die to placate the mass murderer Trump.Excellent Article:
The Chinese Virus – Why We Panicked and Why We’ve Got to End the Panic Now
a 99,9% survival rate and you have to be tested to know that you have it!There were some good reasons we were scared, indeed, petrified, of the Chinese Virus. But we panicked mostly because we were set up to do so. First, there had been weeks of reporting describing the crazed goings-on in Wuhan. Wuhan suddenly materia...www.americanthinker.com
Reread my thread. Whatever "economic misery" that the plan I put forward in my thread would be absolutely nothing to what has happened in the past 9+ months. And what will follow. From what I hear, Europe is now dealing with a second wave. We need to have done with all that bullshit. Stop the virus. That is all. Just do whatever is necessary to put an end to it. And having prepared to do so, it won't be all that bad. After Biden gets elected, there will probably be another round of stimulus checks. Over a two month period, there would be no problem with spending that money to buy the supplies needed to last for three weeks. It would be a hell of a lot better than getting the money and still having the coronavirus around afterwards.
But back on the topic, quarantines can't be viewed as "draconian" when there is a logical and justified reason for them. Also, there have been many times in the past when our government called on the patriotic duty of the country to get something done. China has probably done the same thing. We need to do that again here with the coronavirus. And maybe give America the justification to execute anti-maskers for treason. Those morons talk about freedom. But the line has to be drawn at having the freedom to spread the virus and kill even more people.
In the US, we do the very opposite. We ask people to get tested and quarantine if positive. Someone from the health dept. contacts the infected person and ask who they were in contact with. The contacts are traced down and tested. That is how it is suppose to work. Unfortunately, many that test positive are never interviewed. Also, since most health depts. do not have enough personnel to monitor all positive cases, once the infected person feels better they often go back into community spreading the virus. We need to do better here.
Japan's response to the virus shows us what should have been done in the US. There were no orders from the Japanese government nor any law enforcement forcing people to follow the requests of prime minister. Schools were shutdown for a month but businesses were never ordered to close. A lot of business dropped off so much that many closed or cut hours. Mask wearing in public was near universal and social distancing was practiced. In short, they did what the US CDC said should be done with little if any opposition. As one Japanese man said, "It would be unthinkable for anyone associated with the government or any news outlet to suggest that people not follow the rules. In Japan, with a population of about 125 million people they have had 1630 total deaths do to covid-19 compared to the US total of 217,000. In Japan, a survey was done asking whether you would take the vaccine if it became available early next year. Over 90% said yes. In the US, a similar survey reveal 50% said they would not take it. 70% participation is the target in order to attain herb immunity and get rid of virus.
"Nearly 25% of New York City Transit Workers Cited Covid-19 Infections, Study Says
... a team of researchers from New York, Harvard and Yale universities said Tuesday that nearly one-quarter of subway and bus workers they surveyed this summer reported having had the virus.
The state-controlled Metropolitan Transportation Authority runs the city’s subway and bus systems as well as two of the nation’s busiest commuter railroads. About 130 of its 68,000 employees have died of Covid-19-related causes, mostly in the departments that operate subways and buses."
Nearly 25% of New York City Transit Workers Cited Covid-19 Infections, Study Says
New York City subway and bus workers might have been infected by the new coronavirus at rates higher than previously thought, a survey says.
That's a fatality rate of 0.0019
And....we don't know how many actually died of this virus, or died of other factors.
"....just 7.3% of transit workers had taken leave because they were infected with the virus."
You must be shakin' in your boots, huh?
How many stayed home with the usual season flu in other years when Trump wasn't running and had to be stopped?
To illustrate, the mortality rate for deaths in airplane accidents in 2019 was .000000857, yet we spend 140 million dollars a year investigation airplane accidents and 40% of Americans fear flying.
No one ever shut down the entire economy due to airplane deaths.
Nor did they make everyone walk around with a parachute.
The Wuhan death rate is close to that of the seasonal flu.
And that huge number that they advertise.......the CDC said that only 6% of that number is due to the Wuhan singularly.
You're either too stupid to recognize what is actually going on, or evil enough to go along with it.
