“Why listen to me?
I can only predict
epidemics and plagues.”
The medieval Silk Road brought a wealth of goods, spices, and new ideas from China and Central Asia to Europe.
In 1346, the trade also likely carried the deadly bubonic plague
that killed as many as half of all Europeans within 7 years, in what is known as the Black Death.
Globalism has been touted as the new Silk Road.
But a world without borders is also one without barriers to disease pathogens.
China dragged its diplomatic feet in speaking of the severity of Covid-19.
About 5 million people left Wuhan, China, before the lockdown, the city's mayor said.
Some by air to get back to their homes in other countries.
Of course, China has been lying. But using their figures, of the 25,000 cases that have been resolved ...
10% have died.
China provides the U.S. with 95% of its antibiotics, in fact most of our drug industry depends on China.
Surgical masks, too.
"Basically we've outsourced our entire industry to China," retired Brig. Gen. John Adams told NBC News.
"That is a strategic vulnerability."
"If China shuts the door on exports of medicines and their key ingredients and raw material,
U.S. hospitals and military hospitals and clinics would cease to function within months, if not days,"
said Rosemary Gibson, author of a book on the subject, "China Rx."
"The U.S. faces a shortage of 150 drugs."
China has locked down more than 140 millions of people, closing hundreds of businesses nation wide.
We will soon learn the folly of American companies outsourcing manufacturing to China
to have their goods assembled, or completely built overseas, at incredibly low costs.
According to the Daily Mail 8 hours ago:
- Afghanistan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq became the latest countries to record cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus
- Italy confirmed its seventh virus death in Europe's first major outbreak, with 11 towns in lockdown to contain the spread of the infection
- South Korea now has the largest number of cases outside of mainland China, with 830 patients known to have caught the virus
- Iranian officials denied a cover-up after a lawmaker claimed 50 people have died from the infection in the city of Qom alone
- But the UK's official position for Italy, South Korea or Iran has not changed, with the coronavirus threat to the British public still being 'low'
- Why hasn't the WHO rushed to declare Covid-19 a pandemic?
In the beginning, the WHO was supposed to receive funds only from the governments of United Nations members,
But a few years ago, in order to swell its coffers WHO set up what it calls a “private partnership”
that allows it to receive financial support from private industries.
But which industries you ask?
Why the pharmaceutical companies of course!
The bank JP Morgan on Wall Street estimated that,
thanks mainly to the pandemic alert issued by the WHO in 2009,
the pharmaceutical giants, who also finance the work of the ESWI run by Albert Osterhaus, were set to make $7.5-$10 billion profit.
Could the fact that there is as yet no vaccine for Covid-19 have any bearing why the WHO is slow to declare a pandemic?
But Don't Panic.
When could we ever believe world governments or world institutions?
Believe that they are governed by self-interest and greed, and you will not be far from the truth.
Store a 2 week supply of food and water in your home.
Check your regular prescription and over the counter drugs to be ready.
KEEP SAFE -
Wash your hands frequently.
Avoid touching your face and lips.
No handshakes or hugs.
Asymptomatic people can still infect you: keep 6 feet apart from folks as much as possible.
Have a supply of n95 masks, dust masks, as they can filter out most harmful particulate matter.
Stock up on toilet paper ... or used corn cobs. Ouch!
Remember COSTA MESA -
A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order late Friday
to halt the transportation of up to 50 people infected with a new virus from China to a Southern California city for quarantine
who has tested positive for the new coronavirus to Costa Mesa, a city of 110,000 in the heart of Orange County.
You see, anyone who has tested positive for the virus cannot stay at the base
and must be sent either to the hospital or if they're not sick enough, isolated until the infection has cleared.
It would have been to Fairview.
It’s now nearly empty as the state has moved residents into community homes and other living situations.
A state lawmaker whose district includes Costa Mesa said he feared the virus could travel through the facility's air vents.
Ask the passengers of the Diamond Princess about those deadly air vents.
I thought the U.S. government said there were only 15 infected in America?
Trust your common sense
and your instincts.
