Social distancing, Covid-19. fascism and the flu
Marvin Gaye -What`s Going On
Coronavirus: a type of common virus that infects humans, typically leading to an upper respiratory infection (URI.) Seven different types of human coronavirus have been identified. Most people will be infected with at least one type of coronavirus in their lifetime. The viruses are spread through the air by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact, touching an object or surface contaminated with the virus and rarely, by fecal contamination. The illness caused by most coronaviruses usually lasts a short time and is characterized by runny nose, sore throat, feeling unwell, cough, and fever.
Examples of human coronaviruses that have been reported to cause severe symptoms include the MERS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS), SARS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, and the new 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak that began in Wuhan, China.
The flu (another coronavirus) has been and remains demonstrably more dangerous than this new virus. The flu, for hundreds of years and currently, has killed hundreds of thousands of people every year. In 1918 the flu killed 50 to 100 million people. Covid-19 has not done this. We are in a heap of trouble with the most expensive and least effective health care system among developed nations. Morons and fools at the helm try to second-guess doctors and scientists and the US Senate does not have the integrity or inclination to tell hard truths. Things will continue to deteriorate.
.The best solution is to shut down 48 unprovoked but expanding American wars costing trillions and killing millions so we can use these funds to invest in peace and protect the health and well-being of everyday people. I won’t hold my breath, but the time is now.
“for healthy males who are not residing in a nursing home or engaged as a health-care worker, the base risk number (the odds of getting Covid) likely moves by very little above 4.2%.”
And the odds of dying from Covid are even lower.
Less than .0003% of humans on planet Earth have died from Covid-19, based on questionable statistics.
And more than 99.0007% have not…
This is nonsense. America has the most expensive and least effective health care among developed nations. The USA is dead last. This has been true for years and has NOTHING to do with Covid-19.
The Covid-19 virus is real, but less dangerous than thugs beating up demonstrators complaining about police murdering citizens. The virus is less dangerous than a half dozen other causes of human deaths. Forced masking and beating up and or arresting healthy people who refuse to wear unnecessary masks is fascism, writ large.
Trump and Biden are completely amoral. Trump approves of crotch-grabbing, racism,
sexism, prejudice, bigotry and murdering those who disagree with him. Biden and Trump both endorse the expansion of 48 unprovoked and unnecessary wars costing trillions and killing millions to enforce illegal corporate extraction, exploitation and extortion. This is rank treason.
Don Trump was OK with dismembering a live journalist who criticized him. Donald John entertained the perpetrator of this murder in the White House.
Don’t expect help from the White House. They are not focused on healthcare or peace.
Covid-19 is a footnote to dozens of unprovoked but expanding wars and is less dangerous than a half dozen other causes of death. Torturing children with masks, half-truths and lies is unhealthy and unwise.
Condolences and blessings for healing.
