Corona Virus Blues…
Allen Ginsberg- Sickness Blues
Beaches, oceans, forests, rivers and mountains do not spread viruses or the flu and are not the problem. Stupid people are the problem.

Both the flu and COVID-19 can be prevented by frequent, thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected.
- Heart disease: 647,457
- Cancer: 599,108
- Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
- Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
- Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
- Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
- Diabetes: 83,564
All of these are having more impact on Americans than COVID-19.

COVID-19: The first cases appeared in China in late 2019 and the first confirmed case in the United States appeared in January 2020.
According to the latest figures published by Johns Hopkins University, 10,500,000 cases of Covid infection have been detected worldwide, with 372 thousand deaths.
In the USA, there have been 1.83 million confirmed cases and 106 thousand deaths
Flu: The World Health Organization estimates that 1 billion people worldwide get the flu every year.
Flu: The World Health Organization estimates that 290,000 to 650,000 people die of flu-related causes every year worldwide.
The COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly. Since this disease is caused by a new virus, people do not have immunity to it, and a vaccine may be many months away. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the mortality rate of COVID-19, but at present, it is thought that between .06 and 1.4% of those infected will die.

Albert King – I’ll Play the Blues for You (Composer Lyricist: Jerry Beach)
The best solution is to shut down 33 expanding American wars to use those trillions protecting the health and well-being of humans on planet Earth. Won’t hold my breath.
Lisa Maragakis, M.D., M.P.H., senior director of infection prevention at Johns Hopkins, explains how the flu and COVID-19 are similar and how they are different.
Can result in pneumonia.
Both the more prolific common flu and COVID-19 may be prevented by frequent, thorough hand-washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected. Period.
The Story of Influenza
Mortality impact is difficult to predict, but a shift to younger ages is highly likely.
Virtues of Antigenic Sin:
The Sparing of the Elderly
Sero-archaeological studies have demonstrated that the majority of the very elderly had H3 antibodies before they were exposed to the 1968 A(H3N2) pandemic virus (Dowdle, 1999; Marine and Workman, 1969). These antibodies were remnants of the immune response to exposure to H3N? viruses that circulated before 1891 (Marine and Workman, 1969); thus, the 1968 pandemic virus apparently contained an H3 antigen “recycled” after 77 years of absence.

There may be some padding in these figures…
We are in a heap of trouble with the most expensive and least effective health care system among developed nations and a moron at the helm who thinks he can second guess doctors and scientist and a Senate without the integrity or inclination to remove Trump and Pence. Things will continue to deteriorate.
The best solution is to shut down 33 expanding American wars and use those trillions to protect the health and well being of humans and the planet. Will not hold my breath.
Why are we pretending Covid-19 is more dangerous than it may be?
The death rate from seasonal flu is typically around 0.1% in the U.S., according to news reports.
The death rate for COVID-19 is between .06 and 1.4%. Credible research suggests this is incredibly low, considering that there is no vaccine.
It’s important to note that there is no one death rate for COVID-19; the rate can vary by location, age of person infected and the presence of underlying health conditions,
Live Science previously reported.
… As the number of confirmed cases goes up, the fatality rate may decrease.”
B. B. King – The Thrill Is Gone (Live at Montreux 1993)
The thrill is gone.
The Flu is currently more lethal and widespread than COVID-19 …
but both diseases can be avoided or prevented with common sense.
… so wash your hands, stay home when you are sick and avoid others who are ill.
Both the flu and COVID-19 may be prevented by frequent, thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected. Or use a handkerchief when you cough.
