Stop me if you have heard this one. Mini Mike Bloomberg spent $500 million in his vain attempt to be the democrat nominee for President. Noted journalists and math experts extraordinaire Brian Williams and Mara Gay did the math and concluded Bloomberg could have given $1 million to every American instead of wasting it on the campaign.
It sounds like these two bumbling boobs of broadcast journalism could be the architects for limiting the gathering of people to less than fifty and heading for shelter in place.
I am not an epidemiologist. I’m certainly not a mathematician. However, there are two things within my experience that argue against the current approach. Isolation and extreme cleanliness is not as effective as the MSM would have you believe. Don’t believe me? Find somebody who works in a hospital and whisper C-DIF or staph infection in their ear.
If they are straight with you, then they will admit the best chance of catching a staph infection is in a hospital.
The other thing is more in my line. As CSI TV shows demonstrate, anybody who enters a crime scene brings trace evidence with them and by the same token takes trace evidence from the scene with them (transfer) . The trick is to find out what was transferred and making a match.
What they don’t tell the viewer is that working a crime scene is a snap shot of what happens to be there at that moment. In 1969, LAPD found a pair of eyeglasses at the Sharon Tate murder scene (Manson Family murders). Fifty years later LAPD still doesn’t know how or if those eyeglasses are evidence connected with the murder.
So limit gatherings to fifty people, monitor their health before admittance. Problem solved right? Nope. What about the previous fifty people from yesterday, the day before, last week bring to the party? Just how long does the Chinese virus last on surfaces? Here is one answer.
Coronavirus Traces Lingered in Vacated Cruise Cabins for 17 Days
Jonathan Levin and Michelle Fay Cortez
(Bloomberg) — Traces of new coronavirus were found on surfaces in cruise-ship cabins for as many as 17 days after passengers left, researchers said, though it wasn’t possible to determine whether they caused any infections.
Here is some information that shows that restricting the movement of people is doomed to failure.
Here is a description of the Chinese virus that I haven’t seen on the MSM.
- The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.
- Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies NO BACTERICIDE SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; they cannot kill what is not alive with anthobiotics, but quickly disintegrate its structure with everything said.
- NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic; and wood, because it removes all the moisture and does not let it peel off and disintegrates). ), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic). But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
I’m not a medical professional. I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express. MSM takes great delight in reporting celebrities that have allegedly tested positive. Some of them are apparently asymptomatic. There is a good possibility that some of these folk are lying. There is also the possibility that since the virus deteriorates they were infected with a weakened virus.
I seem to remember something about milk maids, cow pox, and small pox back in Ben Franklin’s time. It doesn’t matter about his advocacy for small pox inoculation, he was an old white man.
The whole theory of shelter in place is not to prevent the disease but to shape the course of the disease as it affects large numbers. This allows the existing infrastructure to deal with the effects. It is difficult getting information out of China, but it appears that the flattening of the curve is happening in China. The determining factor is time, not human intervention.
The author of the English model predicting death on a massive scale has repudiated the study and reduced the number of dead from 500,000 to 20,000. Oops! Kinda sounds like the flu.
