Time to spool up the engines, get up to speed...and question much received "wisdom".


I used to read Zerohedge for laughs now and again as they would put out zany investment theories a few years ago. Now they are just a clearinghouse for all kinds of wack - although they occasionally feature interesting pieces from folks like David Stockman.

Use a pinch of salt, every time.

All good friend...thanks for that example straight out of the Alinsky textbook; attack the messenger NOT the message.

Now, if you would like to refute the scientific premise(s), I'm sure we're all ears.



You have no scientific premise. You have a linked article with no backing pretext of what agenda you are pushing from a known anti intellectual tin foil hat site.

Michigan is now reporting cases and deaths by sex, age, race and ethinicity. It is neither complete nor perfect, but at least they are making an attempt to report as detailed as possible.

Amazon is restricting mask sales to the public, good move, I hope other retailers follow Amazon.

Wearing masks in public is a good way to mitigate potential cross infection and return to some sort of normalcy. Better to be free to move in public while wearing a mask than being locked up indefinitely IMO.

They don't have the authority to do this. Look at the lawsuits I shared yesterday. We don't just get to have our constitutional rights when it's convenient. They apply at all time unless taken through due process.

Aw geez, you're one of those guys. Just as the paramedics scraping you off the pavement because you chose not to wear a seatbelt could be doing other things with their time, the hospital bed you take up when you get COVID-19 and didn't have to could just as easily go to someone else who needs it more. Unfortunately there's more at stake that personal choice.

That seems an interesting interpretation of what the CDC actually says.

From their home page:
If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

Saying wearing a facemask is not needed is very different to saying they advise against it.

I think you are just against whatever I post. The federal government has asked people not to purchase face masks due to the shortage.

I will save the discussion whether this is "dictatorship" or not for another day.

The problem is...
1. Good luck finding a surgical mask. I haven't saw any in US since January
2. Bandana and Scarves do absolutely nothing when it comes to protection against the Wuhan Virus

Seriously, such laws are definitely stupid especially in US right now, given that even medical staff doesn't necessarily have enough PPEs.

What I’m against is the spreading of falsehoods. Maybe if you didn’t misrepresent things in order to push your political agenda? Nobody you’ve quoted has advised against wearing facemasks.

You said the CDC advised against wearing a mask if you don’t have Covid-19, but they haven’t. The government asking people not to purchase face masks so they’re more readily available for carers is very different to advising against wearing them.

You seem to be willing to twist facts in order to peruse your tireless railing against the measures implemented in America and many countries in order to try and slow the spread of Covid-19.

Maybe social pressure would do it.


Social pressure did miracles over here [Czech Rep.]. Someone (definitely not the government) started a campaign #masks4all encouraging people to wear face masks (following government imposed rule to wear masks whenever leaving home under quarantine rules).
The message is simple: "My facemask protects you, your facemask protects me". The response was surprisingly positive from a nation that has been until a month ago deeply divided, often lethargic and not easy to really behind anything positive. It took 2 days for 99+% people to buy into this with people taking own initiative into their hands and self-supplying themselves, friends, relatives, elderly people with makeshift face masks.
These facemasks are far from perfect, but they provide barrier against droplets and they leave professional facemasks to those who professionaly come into contact with Dick people.

410,

You do understand that the push to rename this virus is part of a propaganda campaign by the CCP to deflect blame away from them for this pandemic? Either name is perfectly fine to use unless you have a political axe to grind, and naming it the Wuhan/Chinese virus is perfectly acceptable.

If it is a politically loaded term to you so be it, nobody who uses the term is racially attacking anyone, they are placing the blame for this pandemic at the feet of the man responsible for it, Mr Xi/Winnie the Pooh and his totalitarian police state. They were the ones who hid it, ignored it, and never responded, and lie to this day about it.

The only people charging racism for using the term is from those who accuse people of being racist for using it, and those who thought the US President's travel ban at the end of January was an act of racism and xenophobia.

BTW, who in the West is responsible for failing to deal with the Wuhan virus?

Throwing on...it WAS name Wuhan Pneumonia right in Chinese media (go back and read People's Daily from January...the unmodified version, that is) up until CCP decide that it should no longer be name that way.

To 410 - I am from Hong Kong, so although my US citizenship would make me a "westerner", don't lump me onto the BS about how using Wuhan virus is racism to deflect blame.

Yeah. You can feel good to call it like this in your little country but the rest of the world choose to use another name as a generic and we are much more. We'll see later what nickname the history will keep, given current umbers the "US flu" wouldn't be that dumb.

But I note you already try to shift the blame. Wonder what you will say when we'll be able to compare the way each country handled this crisis. Remember it originated in the same place for everybody, comparison may hurt some feelings.

There will be a larger scale study starting next week.
The small samples are promising, but we need to find out on a larger scale. I just find it interesting that China did not do a large study. They toyed with this treatment and saw success.

https://techcrunch.com/2020/04/02/henry ... -covid-19/

//edit, I
finished reading the article, and it highlights a Chinese study that found little variance with standard anti-viral's. so we need the above study and few more.

https://techcrunch.com/2020/03/25/new-s ... ronavirus/

n a prime example of why President Trump shouldn’t be endorsing any unproven potential treatments for the novel coronavirus behind the current global pandemic, a new small-scale study by researchers in China indicates that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine actually isn’t any more effective than standard, existing best practice for conventional care of patients with the virus.

The study, which included 30 patients with a control of 15 who received no treatment, with the other half being treated with hydroxychloroquine, showed that there was a statistically insignificant difference in the number of patients who tested negative for the drug after a week. During the study, those who received conventional treatment were provided anti-virals that are currently recommended for use in China, including Iopinavir and ritonavir. After a week, 13 of the 15 control patients showed no sign of the virus, while 14 of the 15 who were treated with hydroxychloroquine showed the same.



Unfortunately/Fortunately there are a lot of subject and countries to run larger scale trials in .

finished reading the article, and it highlights a Chinese study that found little variance with standard anti-viral's. so we need the above study and few more.

https://techcrunch.com/2020/03/25/new-s ... ronavirus/

n a prime example of why President Trump shouldn’t be endorsing any unproven potential treatments for the novel coronavirus behind the current global pandemic, a new small-scale study by researchers in China indicates that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine actually isn’t any more effective than standard, existing best practice for conventional care of patients with the virus.

The study, which included 30 patients with a control of 15 who received no treatment, with the other half being treated with hydroxychloroquine, showed that there was a statistically insignificant difference in the number of patients who tested negative for the drug after a week. During the study, those who received conventional treatment were provided anti-virals that are currently recommended for use in China, including Iopinavir and ritonavir. After a week, 13 of the 15 control patients showed no sign of the virus, while 14 of the 15 who were treated with hydroxychloroquine showed the same.



Unfortunately/Fortunately there are a lot of subject and countries to run larger scale trials in .


That study in China is definitely interesting...and basically means more works are needed.

Plus, it seems like all the studies so far are to treat patient with mild symptoms. While that helps with not overloading the medical system, it doesn't change the lethality of the virus itself.

Deaths appear to be showing positive signs of flattening in Spain and Italy - hopefully their peak is nearing.

So if true, is this a way for the rest of the world to take a shot at China while at the same time taking up for them by not using the Wu**** name?

Er….no. But full marks for trying.
And if it was a joke, my apologies but April 1st was two days ago.

Under agreed guidelines between WHO, the @OIEAnimalHealth & @FAO, we had to find a name that did not refer to a geographical location, an animal, an individual or group of people, and which is also pronounceable and related to the disease

Hence
Corona (CO)
Virus (VI)
Disease (D)
2019 (19)

Let's hope the same does not apply to the USA releasing the virus in Wuhan, that rumour is also being repeated a lot.

Why the need for a new name, it is a variation of SARS and the Corona Virus, unless they do not want folks to think of using items that works on those?

Ok, so you've answered your own question, but I'll volunteer an answer on behalf of the UN anyway.
The UN probably regret naming the first outbreak "SARS" because, as is blindingly obvious now, that is just a generic term.
I get SARS every evening when I climb up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire, but after 10 minutes I'm cured again.

Influenza is also a generic term, which is why we have "Spanish 'flu" to denote a particularly significant strain - you may have heard of it?

This time, finally, they have got it right. COVID-19 will either be a one-off, like 9/11, that we will always remember. Or it may indeed re-appear at some future date, possibly starting out from..... Norway... or Australia...or Iceland. And suddenly the name "Wuhan virus" is no longer appropriate.
Likewise a new date could be added so that it becomes COVID-26 (assuming it strikes in 2026)
Or it gets a new name entirely if it is no longer a corona-virus.

With the world's population ever increasing, and air travel becoming easier, it is almost inevitable that pandemics will become more frequent and more destructive. And original sources less and less clear. What price a French national starting a disease half way across the Pacific whilst flying back & forth between Tokyo and LAX (after eating a meal of Argentine beef) ? Who gets the credit for that one?

Let's hope the same does not apply to the USA releasing the virus in Wuhan, that rumour is also being repeated a lot.
Repeated "a lot" ? Then you need to find a better source for your news!
In my world it was mentioned a handful of times only, a week or so back, along with clear indications it was just mud-stirring by the Chinese, and since then I've heard NOTHING.
Are you perhaps relying too much on Chinese (or possibly Russian) news sources? I can't think of anyone else still carrying this story. :shakehead:
p.s. "rumour"? You are the second one today displaying curious spellings. Wot is occurring here?
Nothing to see here; move along please.

ok, lets debunk that nonsense. Which is amazingly easy, and you could have saved yourself the embarrassment of not just sharing, but defending, an article that makes up bullshit by simply reading the Paper it is based on: https://img-prod.tgcom24.mediaset.it/im ... da0204.pdf

Yeah.. .they do imply the lab may have something with to do with it... in the sense of a bat they caught a few hundred km away maybe slipped out. Nothing bioweaponry man-made super-virus nonsense your genocidal media sources are hellbent to imply.

Now go to the whiteboard and write 100 times "I shall always read the primary source".

They just guided you to the conclusion you already had before hand by selectively quoting...... and you fell for it face first.

I will save the discussion whether this is "dictatorship" or not for another day.

The problem is...
1. Good luck finding a surgical mask. I haven't saw any in US since January
2. Bandana and Scarves do absolutely nothing when it comes to protection against the Wuhan Virus


Actually they do, as they reduce how far droplets from your mouths are thrown when you breathe, cough or sneeze.

You’re both right. Bandanas and scarves cannot stop individual virus particles from penetrating to your mucuous membranes due to the material’s molecular structure. They likely should stop large droplets loaded with virus from traveling any distance away from you when coughing or sneezing and are thus potentially effective for protecting others from your infection.

The media continues to be irresponsible. They release articles on people who have died from coronavirus but they never mention if they had any other health issues that would make them more susceptible to complications. They don't even mention if they sought medical attention after testing positive.

Doctors and RNs posting on Twitter left and right about critically ill/dead colleagues are not posting about their medical and treatment histories either. Should they also cease and desist? State your actual point - ya know, the ‘driving fear so the feds can strip our freedoms away’ nutjob narrative. You can go off-grid and live a different life if you’re so uncomfortable being a participant in society that happens to intertwine with media and government.

I didn't say they should stop. The media should have no restrictions. I said they are being irresponsible.

And as far as freedoms go, Americans apparently don't value those anymore. You've given the government a pass to do whatever they please. The genie has never been able to be put back in the bottle. Curfews are the biggest assault. There is absolutely no justification for it. If I want to go jogging at 3 am then that's my right. You'd think they'd be happy about it since there are far fewer people out that late. Less chance of spreading infection. But no, mayors want to be bullies and treat their constituents like children.

It’s for public health and welfare - which is in their purview of responsibility. As Dr. Birx noted in today’s WH presser, it’s obvious from progress on the US curve line that not enough people are taking distancing guidelines seriously. Absolutely we value freedoms, but childish ninnying about ‘doing whatever I want’ is not the conversation most mature adults are interested in at the moment.

If the media and Twittersphere are conveying the seriousness of what’s at hand, then they are most certainly being responsible.

I don't think you are getting my point. I'm not debating that some measures need to be in place. The virus will be gone at some point. This event will be used as precedent for future power plays.

They can use covid19 as a Boogeyman and tell us it's happening again and need to lock us down before it spreads. How do you stop something like that?

Yeah, and who would ever have thought that leaders like Pol Pot, Stalin, and Saddam Hussein could get away with what they did. I'm sure there were people who tried to warn others of what was brewing. Take away freedoms a little bit at the time so people don't notice. People got more upset about what Rush Limbaugh thought about free birth control than being confined to their homes or having their businesses shuttered.

You might have a point if I was being partisan. I said the Republican mayors and governors should be held accountable as well. They're all tyrants who keep extending the lockdowns. And none of you have answered my question of what woud stop them from making it permanent.
