A/C posts a daily round-up, a lot of it info the MSM won’t touch!
One slide in a leaked presentation for US hospitals reveals that they’re preparing for millions of hospitalizations as the outbreak unfolds. https://www.businessinsider.com/presentation-us-hospitals-preparing-for-millions-of-hospitalizations-2020-3
A/C: It is a presentation from February. There is a strange aspect to the virus, in that it seems to come on very strong initially, and then peter out quickly, as if everyone is being exposed in the first month, but only a small subset are susceptible, and once they are all hit by the end of the month, new cases level off as the remaining potential patients are not susceptible. But it seems early trends do not persist, and the raw numbers don’t seem to bear out over the long term. I take this seriously, and am preparing as if it were going to be the one. I think logic says it is a risk, and the numbers would make it entirely possible, but this feels as if it will not get us on this go around, but rather will re-emerge in a year or two having mutated into something bigger and more virulent.
Police-enforced quarantine hits Calif. residential block after man’s Coronavirus death. Amygdala stimulation is good. All of this is exercising the same brain structures, and building the same cognitive sensation which will promote common sense and conservatism. https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2020/03/06/police-enforced-quarantine-hits-calif-residential-block-after-mans-coronavirus-death/
London Mayor claims ‘no risk’ of catching coronavirus on public transport. A lot of outright wrong info being given out lately. Are they that stupid, or are they lying. And if they are lying, why are they lying? https://nypost.com/2020/03/06/how-white-house-is-protecting-trump-from-the-coronavirus/
Coronavirus Patient Zero in Italy was a Pakistani migrant who refused to self-isolate and kept delivering Chinese food. https://www.wnd.com/2020/03/coronavirus-patient-zero-italy-pakistani-migrant-refused-self-isolate/
Chinese doctors say autopsies of #coronavirus victims suggest that COVID19 is “like a combination of SARS and AIDS as it damages both the lungs and immune systems,” and can cause “irreversible” lung damage even if the patient survives.@thespybrief

Starbucks employee tests positive in…. US runaway epicenter of COVID19… Seattle. Of course. Seattle epidemic is already predicted to be a runaway train for the next 2 weeks. Doubling time for the virus is estimated to be 6.2 days.

SOBERING“ Seattle/WA epidemic forecast by a genomic epidemiologist. Not for reading if faint of heart. ~1000 cases by March 10, ~2000 cases by March 15th. Man. We are not ready at all for this. Tell your family and friends to prepare. This isn’t a drill anymore. COVID19.

If the Chinese didn’t want it to be called the “Wuhan virus” they shouldn’t have covered up outbreak for weeks for political reasons, exported it to their neighbors incl Iran, which in turn also covered it up for political reasons then exported it to every inhabited continent.

http://voxday.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-big-shutdown.html Vox Day lives in Italy, and is in a quarantined area. His whole family is now over ‘sort sort of flu-like thing’; he has not (yet?) caught it.
Vox Day blogs: Arrivederci, Boomerati:
We are at this point, we have to decide who will live and who will die, who will be cured and who will not. The doctors of the Italian Society of Anaesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care (Siaarti) have written in a document that, in the face of the current epidemic and in the event of further worsening, the sacrifice of dozens of people will be inevitable due to their age and fragility.
We read: “It may be necessary to set an age limit when entering the intensive care unit. It is not a question of making purely valuable choices, but of reserving resources that may be very scarce for those who are more likely to survive and secondly for those who may have more years of life saved, with a view to maximizing the benefits for the greatest number of people”.[/q]
Also excellent, if you like listening/watching: this guy, Chris Martenson.
Chris Martenson, PhD (Duke), MBA (Cornell) is an economic researcher and futurist specializing in energy and resource depletion, and co-founder of PeakProsperity.com (along with Adam Taggart). As one of the early econobloggers who forecasted the housing market collapse and stock market correction years in advance, Chris rose to prominence… blah blah blah….
“First of all, I am not an ivory-tower economist. Instead, I’m a trained scientist, having completed both a PhD and a post-doctoral program at Duke University, where I specialized in neurotoxicology. I tell you this because my extensive training as a scientist informs and guides how I think. I gather data, I develop hypotheses, and I continually seek to accept or reject my hypotheses based on the evidence at hand. I let the data tell me the story.”

At the current rate of spread, conservative math calculates that by May, the current US covid-19 case count of 361 infected will jump to *4&043; million*.
That is the power of exponential growth.
If that indeed happens, our hospitals and clinics will be utterly overwhelmed. Forget getting treatment for the coronavirus or ANY kind of health emergency.
It’s been said about covid-19: “Most of us are going to get it and all of us are going to know someone who dies from it.” That prediction is looking more and more accurate each day.
Remember; it’s case, case, case, cluster, cluster, boom!
