    Get the Herd of dumb modern slaves in PANIC MODE and the SRF & Friends can do whatever they want, that the slaves will be grateful!

    Ignorance is the fuel of moronic behaviour…

    And to help reduce the level of moronicy (part 1):

    Here, we report the clinical characteristics of a family cluster of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In this family of three, one 35-year-old man (patient 1) had clinical symptoms, a decreased lymphocyte count, abnormal chest CT images, and a positive result on qRT-PCR. By contrast, the other two family members—a 33-year-old woman (patient 2) and a 3-year-old boy (patient 3)—were both asymptomatic, with normal lymphocyte counts and chest CT images but positive qRT-PCR results (figure).

    On Jan 22, 2020, patient 1 travelled from Wuhan (Hubei, China) to Guangzhou (Guangdong, China) with his wife (patient 2) and son (patient 3) by high-speed rail. On Jan 26, patient 1 developed a fever of 37·5°C, which lasted for 1 day. The next day, the patient presented to the Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University with a body
    temperature of 37·4°C, and on the same day developed a sore throat, arthralgia, and myalgia, without chills or headache. Patient 1 was observed from Jan 27 to Jan 29, during which time his body temperature normalised. On Jan 27, routine blood tests showed normal white blood cell and lymphocyte counts, but decreased lymphocyte percentage (appendix). Chest CT scans taken 2 days after symptom onset showed bilateral multiple lobular and subsegmental areas of ground-glass opacities and consolidation (appendix). Two sets of nasopharyngeal swab samples from patient 1 tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on qRT-PCR.

    part 2:

    Patients 2 and 3 had no signs or clinical symptoms during the same observation period (Jan 27–29), with no decreases in white blood cell or lymphocyte counts (appendix).
    Chest CT images taken from these two patients on Jan 28 did not show significant abnormalities. However, two sets of nasopharyngeal swab samples, taken at the same time as those from patient 1, tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on qRT-PCR. All three family members were diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection and were thus transferred to the Infectious Diseases Unit of the Eighth People’s Hospital of Guangzhou for isolation and treatment.In this family cluster, although all individuals tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection on qRT-PCR, only patient 1 showed clinical symptoms, decreased lymphocyte count, and abnormal chest CT images (figure).

    Multibillionaires could ride out any catastrophe in the fully stocked and staffed luxury billionaire bunkers that have appeared in many stories in news magazines and online, while we little people have to try to find a way to pay for housing, water, food, electricity, and health care when businesses are shut down, and everyone’s trying to find alternative work to hold them over, and they’re told by out-of-touch millionaire news and P.R. readers on tv to stay home for a couple months. Hell the billionaires probably came up with an idea like this themselves, they’ve been talking about it for years. Here’s their equation to reduce human produced CO2 to zero—-

    Zero Co2 = people x services each person uses x energy per service x Co2 per unit of energy.

    One of those numbers has to get to zero. The people part of that equation they say is depopulation. Of course that means the lower class people, not them. Are these a holes crazy enough to use something like this to reduce the population in large numbers— not them of course? It’s never them, not in wars, not in the eugenics programs of last century, or the forced sterilizations.

    Who will track the number of people that die not from the virus, but from the corporate-state media-generated panic, and economic shutdown? Poverty is already in the top ten unreported causes of death in the U.S. There’s no place for it on the death certificate because it’s inconvenient. Politicians will pin medals on each other when it’s through, and the rich will be richer. The poor will get the shaft like they always do.

    Glad they were not among the 8,000 who have died. The coronavirus spreads much more easily than the flu and is ten times as deadly. We have more than 50,000 deaths annually from the flu. The coronavirus is likely to be hundreds of thousands, if not more than a million. You are a fool to minimize it.

  • mwildfire

    No, the ultra rich are not immune. They will catch a virus as easily as anyone else–I’m pretty sure they’re actually human and contrary to their mythology, entirely ordinary humans (except for the sociopathy). They may be safe if either 1–they already have an effective vaccine, a conspiracy theory I don’t reject out of hand, unlike the ones I’m seeing claiming it’s all a hoax–one of the theories claims Wuhan is the location of China’s only, or one-of-two, Biosecurity Level Four labs, so this could have escaped or been deliberately released. Or they could be safe if they have already sequestered themselves, but you see powerful people out running around and even shaking hands. The mess they’re creating with climate change will eventually affect them–you can’t live forever in a bunker..
    But this piece talks as though we just need to get pro-social policy pushed through and we can prevent both some of the deaths, and the losses to the poor, and the rich coming out ahead yet again. But who’s gonna bell that cat? We have been trying for half a century to get these programs and policies passed, but the political game is rigged; the rich have an iron grip on power. The difference in the 1930s is that there was a large communist movement globally, including in the US, and a significant faction of the ruling class understood that they could prosper longer and be more sure of keeping their heads if they allowed the middle class a decent minimum. Perhaps there exists such a faction within today’s ruling class but if so they’re heavily outvoted by those who have gone mad with greed and are determined to take the entire pie. Even if they can see that won’t work–the economy depends on workers (even if automation means they need a much lower percentage) and on the creative contributions of the majority not born rich…they likely have a mentality of “me more me, if I don’t grab anything I can, someone else will.” But given the stories about people who belong to the cryogenic society and have plans to emigrate to Mars or download their consciousness, perhaps delusional thinking is epidemic among this class. But they still have power. I mean, what should we do, “vote better people into office”? (Cue hysterical laughter) or get those in their now to betray their sponsors on behalf of the mere humans for whom they have such contempt? I’m sorry, we need a Plan B, we can’t get their through the ballot box.

    “This Time Around, Let’s Use The Power Of The Public Purse To Reduce Inequality.”
    There is no public purse. YES we all have to come together and take back our sovereignty from the big banks who rule what should be the public purse. The Fed is not our government, it is the big banks, JP Morgan Chase, CITI Bank, Goldman Sachs. Get it?

    Hello Kevin…

    Your take away from that study/report is “glad they didn’t died”! Priceless…

    As for the rest, you are a good spreader of populace slogans!

    The coronavirus spreads much more easily than the flu and is ten times as deadly.

    Simple exercise for the simple minded:

    STOP, for the duration of 3 years, infecting animals with the flu vaccine and on the fourth year we will see what is worse the flu (virus A, B and C) or this weaker version of SARS-CoV-1.

    But don’t worry… “HIV” drugs are going to enter the phase of uman trials to see if they can perform in the body the same say they perform in the test tube.

    A little 80’s GRID panic déjà vu…

    The funny part isn’t even that! The fun part is that as soon as a vaccine and/or a drug is available to “cure” the SARS-CoV-2 NOT A SINGLE DEATH WILL BE WORTH NEWS COVERAGE.

    The Chairman of the spanish bank Santander in Portugal is already being used to fertilize Fukushima soil.

    He went to Italy on vacation with sons and got a good death! Just another old dude with a previous bad health getting recycled… And since he was a bankster it was a good recycle.

    The alternative is let them drive us all into the ground so we better get started. Time to address the public incredulity that leaves people in ignorance. How bad does it have to get before you recognize that the money power is the central political issue? BTW the Jewish stars reveal a hole in your understanding of the history of the bank money system.

  • voza0db

    Hello Howard.

    How bad does it have to get before you recognize that the money power is the central political issue? Money Power is above politics, The OWNERS OF THE MONETARY SYSTEM use the sub-system “politics” just like the scheme depicts.

    About the jewish stars they only reveal the FACT that the current SRFs are all from jewish – and others – descent, and this is the History of the bank money system for the last ~3 centuries…
