On my end I do think the virus is real because I'm fairly sure now I had it before most people had even heard the word. I've discussed before what I experienced and based on both location, neighborhood events, and reading other symptoms it's more likely than not now.

I'd probably rate this thing...if I had to put a number on it I'd say 1.5x as bad as the flu. It was extremely nasty because I hit a point where I was dry coughing so much and so hard it began being painful to cough. It was nasty, and awful, and miserable, but it wasn't catastrophic although I (bizarrely) did notice trying to run after the fact (before Corona was mainstream) that my cardio ability had taken a noticeable negative impact.

That doesn't preclude it being over-hyped. It can be real but also have the crisis being blown up more than it needs to be.

Be careful which vendors you get N95 Masks from...

3M Made in USA versus FBA from Amazon in China would be my preference...

See how people are recycling used Wuhan face masks -
in China...

By now, I finally understand why Hitler lost the war. The US/NATO will fare well by ditching Italy as an ally in preparation for the next war.

Contrary to your views, fact is that Italy is far from seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. What Italy needs the most is government efficiency right now. Every piece of news we hear is about healthcare overload in Italy. This is obviously stemming from the incompetence of the Italian government to muster a cohesive crisis response and haughty overconfidence in their system.

By March 22, Madrid, Spain has completed construction of its first temporary hospital providing 5000 beds.
Quote: https://www.theolivepress.es/spain-news/...-in-spain/

We have yet to see Italy to do the same.

Quote: http://www.therepublic.com/2020/03/13/vi...hospitals/

But Italy is desperate, and offers of other European assistance haven’t been pouring in. Already, the civil protection service has erected more than 500 triage tents outside hospitals nationwide.

Lombardy officials had drafted a proposal to build a Wuhan-style field hospital on the grounds of Milan’s fairgrounds to accommodate the expected ICU overflow. But Italy’s Civil Protection agency nixed the idea, saying it can’t equip it in time.

This week, the government passed a decree allowing Lombardy to make new medical hires, and there’s now a “Help Wanted” sign on the regional government’s Facebook page. As of Thursday, 650 doctors and nurses had applied and 100 had been hired, said Lombardy health chief, Giulio Gallera.

Even to this day, they are taking their precious time sifting through the applications, instead of taking in everyone and putting the shittier doctors to work in easy-difficulty tasks.

And don't get me started on that Civil Protection Agency. I can't fathom what the fuck was going on there, apparently it doesn't know how to buy supplies when manufacturing can't keep up, transfer the low-risk patients into them ? Japan currently makes 100 millions masks a week, and China, per day, and vents are in full mode production in both countries right now. If they were thinking about over-reliance, perhaps they should focus on getting out of the massive hole they've fallen into first.

The Italian people will unfortunately pay for the inefficiency and incompetence of their government. There is no reason Italy could not do what Spain could. Spain is 20k cases behind and they got their hospital set up possibly weeks quicker than the Italians (if they can finally stop squabbling and build up).

Quote: Francesco Rocca, head of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent and himself an Italian, choked up as the pallets were offloaded from the China Eastern Airlines charter flight.

“We, the Italian Red Cross, are not used to receiving donations,” Rocca said. “We normally donate.”

Yeah, yeah, shut up. We know you used to not need help. If the Italians could put the same amount of effort from bitching about their former Roman/donation glory, they would have been out of this by now.

Never thought I would say this but Spain >>> Italy.


Confirm. Incompetent governors.

The ice rink thing happened in Spain, not NYC. They would use some of the massive amount of refrigerated shipping containers available before they start laying dead guys on the blue line.

Aloha!

You ever see Spaniards play hockey? Id say its a better use for the rinks

Just when you think that the news could not get any worse. It turns out that soy boys may have higher survival rates (similar to women), because estrogen may protect people against the coronavirus. So much for the theory that only weak men will die.

Quote:Men More Likely to Die in Coronavirus Pandemic
By Lynn Allison | Wednesday, 25 March 2020 03:42 PM

Emerging data on the novel coronavirus shows some startling statistics: in Florida, 60% of confirmed cases are male and are 70% of deaths are men, according to CNN. Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coordinator for coronavirus response, says that in Italy the numbers show that twice as many males die from the virus as females in any age group. Birx calls it a “concerning trend.”

Statistics from the six countries that have provided data show a similar pattern of men dying at higher rates, according to CNN. In Italy, over 70 percent of those who've died have been men, while in other countries, such as South Korea and France, where more women tested positive for the virus, the death tally was nonetheless higher for men. The global average appears to be that men were 50% more likely than women to die after after being tested and confirmed.

Sarah Hawkes, professor of Global Public Health at the University College London, tells CNN that men are more likely to engage in “adverse behaviors” such as smoking and drinking. Knowing that lifestyle factors may affect outcomes of the disease could help us identify those who are most at risk and may help save lives, say experts.

An article appearing in the Los Angeles Times confirms that cigarette smoking damages lungs, making them more susceptible to infection. However, that may not be the only factor.

Dr. Stanley Perlman, a pediatric infectious disease expert, has another spin on the death rate disparity. He conducted a series of experiments infecting male and female mice with the coronaviruses that caused respiratory distress. At every age, according to the Los Angeles Times, male mice were more susceptible to infection than females. However, when the ovaries from the female mice were removed, the death rates shot up. These findings led Perlman to speculate that there is something about estrogen that protects against the deadly virus — and he thinks this is true for the new virus as well.

Wait, cook and sterilise the masks, not the forum members, right? Confused

Anyway, if this coronavirus thing is in serious, how long before camps and ovens are set up to "control the outbreak and save society"? I mean, if really 85% of the world is going to get infected and, with no hospital bed available, 20% will die and the other patients shall be "contained", I see no other options.

Except nowadays, camps are called "quarantined cities, for our own good" and ovens are called "city crematorium under exceptional public management". But make no mistake, if you're in a quarantined city with exit roads cut, you're in a camp. In a camp with Internet and online porn. Whether you'll die or not is now exclusively dependent on the exact nature and contagious power of the virus.

I wasn't sure whether to post this story here -- or in the making money hacks thread.

Quote:Vietnamese airline will pay passengers $8,500 if they catch coronavirus on one of their flights
March 26, 2020

Vietnamese airline Vietjet will pay customers up to $8,500 if they catch the coronavirus while flying with them.

The low cost carrier said it would be making the payouts as part of its new ‘Sky Covid Care Insurance’ policy, which only applies to travellers flying on domestic services until June 30.

The cover is provided free of charge regardless of the passenger’s age or nationality.

“With the insurance, passengers are eligible for insurance coverage and benefits from Vietjet within 30 days starting at 00:01 of the flight date, regardless of how passengers are infected with the disease,” the airline said.

To qualify, passengers must provide “all information in accordance with Vietjet’s terms and conditions” when buying the tickets — including the full name with ID as proof, date of birth, phone number and email address.

The customer must also “comply with all regulations on disease prevention and control of Vietjet, the Ministry of Health and authorities,” it added.

The terms explicitly state that passengers suffering from epilepsy, mental illness or suicidal behaviour are not eligible.

Vietjet claims it has set aside tens of billions of Vietnamese dong (VND) ready to pay out to customers.

As of Thursday morning, Vietnam had 148 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with zero deaths.

Edit: This story is potentially fake. No one can find the woman in question.

Quote:21-year-old who posted about not social distancing gets coronavirus

A 21-year-old Tennessee woman who bragged on social media about not taking the coronavirus outbreak seriously has been diagnosed with the deadly illness, according to a report.

Ireland Tate joked about not following instructions to stay home and practice social distancing amid the pandemic just days before she fell sick, news station WZTV reported.

In a social media video, the Nashville resident told her followers that she’s “aware that we’re supposed to be self-quarantining and social distancing” to “keep everyone safe” — but that she wasn’t worried.

“Cool. I get it. I just don’t think that I’m going to get the virus,” Tate said in the video.

But just days later, Tate found herself suffering from symptoms associated with the dangerous bug and tested positive.

“It feels like someone is sitting on my chest at all times,” she said. “It’s really hard to breathe. I’ve coughed until my throat has bled.”


Tate said she likely got the virus from a pal in her group of friends and she’s now warning other young people to stay home.

“While it may not be affecting you, you could be affecting someone’s grandma or grandpa or aunt or uncle or sister,” Tate told the outlet.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
Some random thoughts:

1. Everyone 60+ and medically weak any age needs to self-isolate indefinitely. Most are retired/non-working so it shouldn't be that much of an inconvenience relatively speaking. If they decide to step outside safe zones belligerently and without good cause, they should be force to accept the consequences of their decisions. Medical resources are finite and everyone needs to sacrifice for the greater good right now to get through this with minimal collateral damage.

For example: If I'm going to have to risk my ass going back to work (AND to also fund old people's social security/medicare), there better be an ICU bed available at a minimum. If your 60+ dumbass went to some cocktail party to talk about shuffle board and you end up in the ICU, that's on you. In fairness, should apply to dumbass spring breakers as well.

Bottom line: STUPID people need to suffer for their decisions if you want PRODUCTIVE people to run society again. Should ALWAYS be like this but we are about out of time for games and worrying about selfish people's first world problems.

2. Everything should only remain shut down to allow for essential supply chains to get up to speed/efficient, give the healthcare sector some breathing room, and for some first-round medical trial results to come in for various treatments (Vit-C, hydroxychloroquine, etc).

3. Mask use should be mandatory when outside the home once overall local hospitalizations have hit a certain critical point capacity. Prior to COVID, I paid extra attention to people's personal hygiene in public and TONS of people are total selfish cunts.

Things I've seen for years: Coughing into hands, picking noses, touching mouths, licking fingers, chewing nails, not washing hands after using the restroom, waiters touching the top of used glasses as oppose to the side, service sector people wiping hand on face/mouth/nose and then severing food, pushing trash down with hands and not washing, etc, etc.

4. Society in the US is gonna tear itself apart very soon if the wheels of the economy don't get spinning soon. Major companies and renters for example are telling landlords to go shove it on bills already. This sort of attitude is going to escalate, spread, and become more severe if things don't turn around VERY soon. $1000-2000 stimulus bucks ain't going to cut it; buys most people a month at best.

5. Some of these "young and healthy" people suffering are not really healthy despite their youthful appearance. That LAX bro who is in a coma now is also in that typical age range where people vape a lot. When you're young, you can abuse your body quite a bit and still perform in many cases and look alright on the surface; although it will catch up with you eventually. Plenty examples out there of high performing athletes burning out and crashing due to drugs/alcohol/diet/etc. Regardless, young people prior to COVID still got dealt shitty hands medical speaking and died randomly out of the blue.

6. The (((mainstream media's))) and democrats anti-hydroxychloroquine push is going to red pill people real fast on what the REAL agenda is (i.e. get the money and power; NOT protect their fellow countryman). Absolutely disgusting given the gravity of the situation what kind of propaganda is flying right now. Not surprising but disgusting nonetheless.

And it's so blatant while people have nothing else to focus on, it's going to be raining red pills for a long time to come I think.

7. As messed up as it sounds, the western world needed something like this to happen: something akin to a nasty uppercut right in the jaw at the global level. The type of hit that you don't shake off easily and that sticks with you forever. Western society needs not just to be broken to possibly repair the damage, it needs to be broken in half; like Undertaker throwing Mankind off the steel cage roof broken in half. It looks like this:





Unfortunately, it takes big time traumatic events to get most people to start asking the hard questions and to figure out what's really important in life. Given the former trajectory of western society (i.e not good), this whole COVID situation could be the massive break many of us needed. Short-term, it's going to suck a bit. Long-term, it might be what ultimately becomes the foundation for the turning of the tide for the better.

No matter what, we will get through this. Stay safe out there.

Millions of Britons clap for carers on coronavirus frontline

[Image: 90702103_145096786849988_308046727513150...e=5EA6DD70]

Quote:At 8pm on Thursday, as darkness fell across the UK, millions of people stood at their front doors and open windows, in gardens and on balconies, to raise a thunder of gratitude for those working on the frontline of the fight against coronavirus.

With the hashtags #clapforourcarers and #thankyouNHS trending all day on social media, a nation that has been – messily, desperately – embracing technology as isolation guidance grows ever stricter was able to do something physical, in the open air, and the collective release was noisy and joyful.

The exuberant din of hand clapping, cheering, hoots and whistles resounded along streets that had been eerily hushed for most of the day.


Children banged on pots and pans, dogs barked, and handbells rang out. Boats sounded their horns across Bristol harbour, while in Oban the high school pipe band added their skirl to the vote of thanks.

From city centres to genteel suburbs and village high streets, the explosion of gratitude for NHS staff, care workers, pharmacists and supermarket staff was heartfelt and heavy with emotion as the country struggles to absorb the enormous, unprecedented changes of the past weeks.

Across Britain, monuments, buildings and bridges turned NHS blue, from London’s Shard to Manchester Central, the Tyne bridge and the SSE Hydro arena in Glasgow.


In individual isolated households the sound was amplified by television, and radio stations paused their programming. Some hung handmade banners of thanks out of windows and across porches, others posted footage of their streets online, adding to the sense of collective appreciation.

The organiser of the viral campaign, Annemarie Plas, a Dutch woman living in south London, said she was “so grateful” to see what originated as an idea between a few friends reach national proportions. Plas was inspired by similar efforts from her friends and family in the Netherlands, as well as watching footage of people coming together to thank their health professionals in Spain and France.


Across the country, coming together was the theme of the thanks. Amy Thompson, from Upper Wraxall, Wiltshire, said: “During this time of isolation it is one of the ways we can collectively show our gratitude and respect to all members of our NHS. Whilst we quarantine in the comfort of our homes they risk their lives to save others. It’s really important to us that they know we want to say thank you.”

Martin Knight, from Cold Ashton, near Bath, added: “As a family we wanted to show our appreciation for the Herculean effort that our NHS staff are putting in every single day and night.

“We were all slightly overwhelmed when we heard the amount of people either coming back to the NHS or volunteering to help out in any way they can, just amazing. It’s these acts of kindness and bravery that inspire each and every one of us.”

Applauding in Glasgow’s southside was Pam Duncan-Glancey, a disability rights activists and NHS employee. “I’ve used the NHS more than most, and it’s incredibly important at a time like this to show solidarity. I don’t work in frontline care, but I see the impact that this crisis is having on colleagues and not once have I seen anyone complain.”

Duncan-Glancy’s own father died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, and the compassion shown to her family by health service professionals is another reason why she is clapping only 24 hours later. “We lost my dad yesterday, yet despite being busier than ever, the paramedic in attendance still took the time to make my sister and I a cup of tea and the ambulance service and NHS24 [Scotland’s telephone health service] – the busiest people on the planet right now – sent us their condolence”.

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
Apologies , very busy with kids , news from the last 2 days
I am filtering a lot , because a lot of stuff my source wrote is now public , and can't be bothered to translate a 3 paragraph rant about how bad is China. I am sorry if something has already been shared by another forum member.

yesterday

- Chinese authorities lying like crazy , it s far from being finished in Wuhan

- The CDC is suspecting that Washington state has "missed" (to track) important clusters and is expecting to see a lot of dead a bit everywhere in the State with a difficulty to manage the propagation. There are also big concerns regarding Louisiana and New Jersey and of course for Florida. An exponential rise of cases in Florida are expected in 2 weeks.

-Switzerland will track mobile phones to detect unauthorized gatherings.

Today
-A confidential document from the Brazilian intelligence shows that they are expecting around 5.5k dead around April the 6th. (actual number : 57).You can consult it here
https://prnt.sc/rni968
https://prnt.sc/rni9mb

-Internal report of the CDC is alerting the White that the USA is facing an unprecedented risk - possibly facing the worst situation in the entire world

-An internal report from the sanitary service of New York state is warning that morgues will be full next week - and is requesting logistical help to deal with dead bodies. See the document below :

-The same thing about morgues in Spain and crematoriums cannot follow the pace. They are stored in skating hall in the meantime. In China , bodies were stored in well-guarded military bases. Numbers from opponents to communist party in China often mention hundreds of thousands dead.

-Wuhan should be "reopen" on the 8th of April.

-Prime Minister Li Kenqiang (China) is asking local governments to hide the new cases of Covid 19 . See the document below (Note : Can someone from this forum translate and/or confirm the information?)

-In France , a lot of dead in retirement homes in France not counted yet.In total it would be up to 2000 dead there.

-Russia sent 600 ventilators and 100 virologists and epidemiologists to Italy. Apparently , 80% of the material is not really useful : mostly disinfection material , a ground lab for sterilization and chemical prevention and other similar things. Putin is making a predominantly geopolitical/diplomatic move.

-Usa is now officially the country with the most cases with more than 82k cases.

After talking to Chinese contact of mine, this is the original article, you can translate it via Google Translate - http://www.gov.cn/xinwen/2020-03/24/content_5494917.htm

And its clearly saying that " Li Kenqiang (China) is asking local governments to NOT HIDE new cases of Covid 19".

Just helping with translation, don't shoot the messenger Angel

More than 500,000 people sign up to be NHS volunteers - UK News

Quote:More than 500,000 volunteers have signed up to support the NHS in helping vulnerable people who have been told not to leave their homes during the coronavirus crisis.

Nearly five people per second enlisted in the government’s new volunteering scheme in the hours after the health secretary, Matt Hancock, launched a call on Tuesday for 250,000 people in England to help bolster the NHS response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Overnight the number of volunteers who had pledged support topped 170,000, and as the day went on the target was smashed. “That is already, in one day, as many people as the population of Coventry,” said Boris Johnson in the daily Downing Street press conference. The figure now stands at 504,303.

The overwhelming response has prompted the NHS to extend its target to recruit 750,000 volunteers in total. Those volunteers who have already signed up will start next week.


As the coronavirus death toll in the UK rose to 422 people as of 10.10am on Wednesday, the government called on fit and healthy adults to deliver vital supplies such as food and medicines to up to 1.5 million vulnerable people, drive them home after being discharged from hospital and make regular phone calls to those in self-isolation.

Nearly 12,000 recently retired NHS staff came forward to rejoin the frontline following a separate call for help. The government has announced plans to set up a makeshift hospital with capacity for 4,000 beds at the ExCeL centre in east London.

Announcing on Wednesday morning that the government’s volunteering scheme was two-thirds of the way to reaching its target just 15 hours after it was set in motion, NHS England’s national medical director, Stephen Powis, said he was “bowled over” by the “astonishing” response.

“Yesterday we sent out a call to arms for an army of NHS volunteers, looking for a quarter of a million volunteers, and I can say that overnight we’ve already had 170,000 people sign up ... It’s an absolutely astonishing response,” he told BBC Breakfast.

Asked if he had expected such support, he replied: “I think at times of crisis, people come together. And the vast majority of people in this country are doing what the government has asked us all to do. But it’s important that everyone does that as that will save lives.

“I know there’s vast numbers of people looking to help neighbours, vulnerable people who live close by, so no it doesn’t surprise me at all. In times like this, as the chief medical officer has already said, we see outbreaks of altruism, people wanting to help, so it’s a wonderful response in the same way that all those doctors coming back, nurses coming back. I’m bowled over by it.”

People can join the scheme in four different roles, including as a community response volunteer, which involves “collecting shopping, medication or other essential supplies for someone who is self-isolating, and delivering these supplies to their home”.

Patient transport volunteers will support the NHS by driving discharged patients to their homes, and NHS transport volunteers will move equipment, supplies or medication between sites. Other volunteers will provide support calls to elderly people who are in isolation and at risk of loneliness.


Volunteers, who must be over 18, fit and healthy and able to pass an enhanced DBS check, will be directed to tasks via a responder app that they can switch to say they are “on duty” when available.

Robert Jenrick, the housing and communities secretary, told BBC Breakfast: “I know there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people out there who would like to support us during this time and support the NHS.

“There will be lots of different opportunities available from helping deliver medicines and food to the elderly and vulnerable who we’re asking to stay at home, being volunteer drivers to get supplies to the frontline or to take people into hospital, or working in hospitals obviously in non-clinical roles.”

Asked if the scheme went against advice to stay at home and how the government would keep volunteers safe, Jenrick said: “The government’s guidance is to stay at home unless you’ve got a reason to be going out. If you’re doing something absolutely essential for fighting the virus, like volunteering in this very organised way, then obviously that’s different. But we want to keep those individuals safe, they’ll receive the training, the support and the equipment that they’ll need to carry out those roles.”

RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
Video from Peter Attia referencing a really interesting NY Times interactive chart which is towards the bottom of the web page.

There are a lot of things that can impact this model but in general I really think anything less that 6 weeks shutdown(from March 13th) in total is going to be suicide and 8 weeks is much more ideal. It seems 40 days give or take really is where a difference is made and huge benefits when you are close to 60 days. Trump trying to hit Easter looks to be foolish so far because there are massive gains to be made just waiting another couple weeks past that. The only possible savior here is the weather. That has a massive impact on the charting and it's possible that really impacts this in a good way.

Another interesting thing to note. The intervention level is massively important. The thing is half assing this like every country outside of asia more that double the time you need to have a shut down. Lets put it this way. If the entire U.S. could literally lock down for 14 days it would be the same as close to 40 days the way we are currently doing it.
