We all seek an “evidenced-based” approach to protecting ourselves and combating SARS-CoV-2. This simulation shows why all of us need to wear face masks. #MaskUp now! ClearHealthLife demanded face coverings March 19th. CDC said NO. They were dead wrong.
UPDATE 5.9.20: Study shows had U.S. #MaskedUp just FOUR DAYS earlier, 10,000s of lives would have been saved. ClearHealthLive called for masking up the population two weeks earlier than CDC and government officials. How many deaths would have been prevented had we not been led by stupid authorities — in government and both political parties? They all were DEAD WRONG. Now they cover this up!
U.S. and Europe got it wrong. Asian nations far better in Third World War. America’s generals just lost another war due to incompetence and hubris. The troops always suffer.
UPDATE 5.10.20: During a task force meeting last Wednesday, a heated discussion broke out between Deborah Birx, the physician who oversees the administration’s coronavirus response, and Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Birx and others are frustrated with the CDC’s antiquated system for tracking virus data, which they believe inflates statistics — such as mortality rate and case count — by as much as 25%.
“There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,”
Dr. Deborah Birx said
UPDATE 5.20.20: CDC now says they were DEAD WRONG about coronavirus spreading on surfaces or objects. SARS-CoV-2 is airborne. #MaskUp and physical distance. Use common sense hygiene practices. The CDC is far more dangerous than COVID19.
On 9.11, Islamic extremists attacked America and some 3,000 people lost their lives. Today, the U.S. passed an undesirable milestone of 50,000 deaths from COVID19. The nation of Taiwan, 80 miles from mainland China, has suffered only SIX deaths. Taiwan has 24 million people.
John Hopkins COVID19 tracker shows Taiwan has six deaths and 428 confirmed COVID19 cases — about 0.025 deaths per 100,000 people. By contrast, the U.S., as of today, has 50,373 deaths, which is about 16 deaths per 100,000 population. Relative to our population, the COVID19 death rate in the U.S. is 628 times higher than of Taiwan.
Due to the 2003 SARS outbreak that hit Taiwan hard, their nation was prepared. Including other measures, the Taiwanese people immediate #MaskedUp. The country stopped flights from China and Hong Kong. They used cellphone data to track, trace and test those infected. Leaders and communities assisted people in quarantine. Their nation worked together.
Most importantly, anticipating high demand for masks in late January, the Taiwanese government started rationing the existing supply of masks, and instructed citizens to go to designated drug stores to line up and buy a specific amount of masks on a weekly basis. The Taiwanese people worked together to win the war.
Dr. Chunhuei Chi, public health professor at the Oregon State University, pointed out this policy has also been duplicated in other countries like South Korea and France.
“Taiwan leveraged the strength of its manufacturing sector and invested approximately $6.8 million (€ 6 million) to create 60 new mask production lines. This increased Taiwan’s daily mask pro production capacity from 1.8 million masks to 8 million masks. This has been called ‘Taiwan’s Mask Miracle.'”
Dr. Chunhuei Chi, public health professor
Still in February and March 2020, the CDC and U.S. Surgeon General directed Americans NOT to wear face masks, as I have repeatedly noted in my articles.
“Seriously people. STOP BUYING MASKS!”
“They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams
CDC director Robert Redfield and the Surgeon General were DEAD WRONG. It’s estimated face masks reduce up to 85% transmission of SARS-CoV-2 pathogens.
Had our “experts” instructed us to #MaskUp immediately, as did Taiwanese leaders, the U.S. 50,000+ deaths would possibly be 85% lower or around 7,500. Had the U.S followed the Taiwan in our response, we might have suffered less than 100 deaths.
American’s leading “experts” murdered over 40,000 Americans — and our losses continues to rise. Officials estimate some 65,000 to 80,000 total deaths at this time from this First Wave. Officials expect a Second Wave next fall.
This is the worst “terrorist” attack on our soil since the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918. U.S. officials killed Americans due to their ignorance. We knew to #MaskUp one hundred years ago. Why did our leading healthcare officials direct us wrongly?
Playing Covid19 Roulette
As we now assume the SARS-CoV-2 virus will be with us 18 months or more, we will live with the threat of COVID19 disease and possible death. For the next two years, or until a cure is discovered, any person you meet could be the one to infect you with this deadly virus.
It’s a game of COVID19 Roulette. Maybe one in ten people are infectious; maybe one in a thousand. Yet this is our New Normal going forward. Are you going to ask them to #MaskUp? Will you as well?
Poor Leadership in Hawai’i
Current governor, David Ige, has demonstrated dangerously poor leadership during this crisis. Consider him to be Governor FrankenIGE. He allows arriving visitors and residents to “self-quarantine.” Airplanes are flying petri dishes. Few believe this policy will be effective. Over 3,000 arrivals have occurred during the lockdown. Police have arrested only a small number of violators and we see new arrivals walking around the community daily.
Governor FrankenIGE (below) poses with feminist political officials just the other day — although safety protocols call for face masks, physical distancing and no more than ten people in a group. Strike One; Strike Two; Strike Three. FrankenIGE and feminists are out!
State representative, Amy Perruso, remains unmasked with the others. Leaders “lead” by example. In Hawai’i, we are ruled by “bosses.” They command, “Do as we say; not as we do.”
The privileged here live in mansions; have private gyms, chefs, hair stylists and personal medical teams. As of today, some 25% of resident are unemployed and devastated. This is over 200,000 human beings. Why then are feminists smiling and disrespecting safety protocols?
Comparatively, the U.S. House of Representatives led by women follow guidelines. They serve to protect Americans, which is in stark contrast to Hawaii’s example.
Men Most Likely to Die
Research shows men over 60 are most likely to die from COVID19. Men, including minority population males, suffer more heart disease, hyper-tension, obesity, diabetes and other medical complications. Women and younger people have better outcomes if infected. Two more men on O’ahu died today. Both were over 60 and had compromised systems.
Generally, women outlive men. The Women of Hawai’i pictured above work in air conditioned offices. Hawai’i forces men to toil outside in hot, humid conditions moving rock, digging ditches, climbing trees and utility polls, trimming greenery, laying down pavement and many other dangerous tasks.
Men suffer more physical pain, and thus, smoke more, drink heavier, and exercise less regularly. Hawai’i sacrifices men so women can live the good life. Feminists care about women — not men or families. Imagine if men organized politically exclusively for men. Women would scream, “Discrimination.” Yet feminists kill men as they discriminate against males every day.
What is Our New Normal?
We have dove far deeper into debt. Likely wasn’t needed had our “experts” followed Best Pandemic Practices. Millions are now out of work. Citizens are frightened, panicked, confused and scared. Political representatives failed their leadership responsibilities.
Yet we can’t change past failures. This is our New Normal. Stay home if you can, but eventually you will need to forage for essentials and get back to work. Wear a face mask and physical distance if you don’t want to kill someone; #MaskUp to protect yourself.
Officials claim this is the First Wave. I believe we suffered the first last November and this is the second. Will be be ready for the third?
Exercise strengthens both our mental and physical health. Get out at least 30 minutes per day. Sunlight, fresh, warm & humid air causes SARS-CoV-2 pathogens to deteriorate more quickly. Open windows and doors. Let the beautiful spring weather in.
Turn off TV news. We have a natural instinct to seek information during a crisis. TV news programs sell more fear than substance. All students of journalism know the rule, “If it bleeds, it leads.”
Stay safe. #MaskUp. This is our New Normal.
