But, it’s also important to keep it in perspective.
At least 98 percent of those who catch COVID-19 make a full recovery.
There are many examples of pandemics in the past that were far more deadly than Covid-19 coronavirus. There are many examples of medical issues and disease that are killing far more people today.
- Abortions account for 3,000 babies killed every day in America.
- Heart disease kills 647,457 every year
- Cancer: 599,108
- Medical errors: 250,000
- Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
- Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
- Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
- Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
- Diabetes: 83,564
- Influenza and pneumonia: 55,672
At the time of this writing, Johns Hopkins CSSE reports there have been 193,705 Covid-19 deaths in the U.S., although it appears these death numbers have been highly inflated and over-hyped through re-defining death caused by Covid to include deaths by just about any other cause when SARS-CoV-2 is also present. The CDC announced in August that only 6% of those deaths were directly attributable to Covid-19, while the other 94 percent had, on average, “2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” the CDC report said in its section headed Comorbidities.
In November 2020, Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar titled “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data”. What she concluded was not only has COVID-19 had no effect on
the percentage of deaths of older people, but it has also not increased the total number of deaths. Her data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.
So, why have the governments around the world taken steps to lock down their societies and economies? Why is there so much fear that leaves many paralyzed in a corner? Are we willing to sacrifice our liberties, our way of life, on the altar of a health crisis that carries a 2 percent risk of death? Que bono? (“to whom is it a benefit?”)
While the virus is dangerous, I’m afraid what we have to fear more than the virus itself is the response to the virus. We’ve had much larger crisis in the past that never triggered the sorts of reactions going on in our society today. Businesses closed down, events cancelled, schools closed, groups prohibited, and people instructed to “shelter in place”. I want to believe President Trump who promised the cure would not be worse than the disease, but I don’t see that in reality. My question is, does the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection equal the response of government and society? What’s really going on here?
Making Sense of the Coronavirus Data
Over the weeks and months I’ve been following this Covid-19 PlanDemic it has become abundantly clear the American public and indeed citizens across the globe are being played. The truth is not being told and instead we are being subjected to an onslaught of Hollywood style theatrics programming designed to modify our behaviors and relinquish more of our rights to the ever increasing big brother nanny government.
New York Governor Cuomo and California Governor Gavin Newsom seem to out-perform the rest of the crisis actors with their daily reality TV shows. Both reading polished scripts from teleprompters along with colorful multi-media graphics go on and on about how they’re here to help, while telling us we’re “non-essential” and should stay home. Newsom’s body language and sheepish grin is perhaps most annoying to me. Other governors around the country with smaller media budgets sometimes try to compete for the best show in town, but usually come up short. What they do all pretty consistently do is parrot the fearmongering talking points and phrases written by the Whitehouse Coronavirus Task Force, the CDC, and WHO. It’s mostly all a big show with Cuomo and Newsom each vying for the Coronavirus Crisis Award. Neither of these men have your health interests in mind, they only seek money and power for themselves. It’s sickening to me to watch that endless stream of propaganda, and it should be categorically rejected.
Unmasking The Science You Aren’t Hearing On TV | COVID-19 Facts from the Frontline
I believe this whole Covid-19 pandemic crisis may actually be a beta-test of the global government’s gauging the adaptive capacity (social compliance) of government’s “guidance” to it’s citizens. In other words, the capacity at different levels of society to cope with change and adapt effectively. They are attempting to answer the question of how far they can push their populations and how many rights people will voluntarily give up before the masses rise in opposition.
Technocrats like Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum boasts, “… one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office. Likewise, populations have overwhelmingly shown a willingness to make sacrifices for the sake of health-care and other essential workers and vulnerable populations, such as the elderly.”
The Report from Iron Mountain is a book published in 1967 details the analyses of a government panel which concludes that war, or a credible substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain power. It is a blueprint for how oppressive governments can keep their citizens psychologically incapable of rebelling. Today, we have the Trump declared war on an “invisible enemy” and the country has been put on a wartime footing. The report states, “A viable political substitute for war must posit a generalized external menace to each society of a nature and degree sufficient to require the organization and acceptance of political authority.”
So far, there have been a number of measures temporarily implemented, only time will tell if they extend beyond the COVID-19 pandemic (assuming the pandemic does end). While it’s too soon to tell what the ultimate outcome of this coronavirus scare will bring, there seems a consensus that when we emerge from this crisis, the world will not be the same as it was six months ago.
What will the new normal look like?
BIG GOVERNMENT Using Coronavirus Pandemic to Secure More CONTROL
I don’t believe this pandemic is happening in a vacuum and I don’t believe it’s just a random novel (new) virus striking the world the first time. Coronaviruses have been with us since the 1960s. If you look below the surface of the mainstream propaganda and deeper into the current crisis, I believe you’ll find there is an ulterior agenda working here.
It appears the 9/11 crisis may have morphed into the Covid-19 crisis.
Like the post 9/11 environment with all its new laws and regulations controlling populations, Covid-19 is leveraging those events even further to advance their agenda. After President Trump crushed the enemy, the terrorists have now been morphed from ISIS to YOU… the asymptomatic carrier of Covid-19. You are declared “unessential”. You are told to stay at home. You are being required to quarantine even when you’re healthy. You are told not to gather with your friends or go to church. You are being prevented from freely traveling. You are required to wear a mask and social distance from others because you or they may be infected with the invisible enemy.
Behind the scenes, and sometimes right in our faces, we’re witnessing those manipulating this crisis to bring about their vision of a new world order system to totally control and dominate the world’s population. “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world” – Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum.
COVID-911: From Homeland Security to Biosecurity
James Corbett points out in his article, “Coronavirus: The “Cures” Will Be Worse Than the Disease“, a bioweapon attack (real or manmade, false flag or otherwise) is the perfect cover for a slew of agenda items on the globalist checklist. And the more the population panics, the more they play into the globalists’ hands.
I believe we are now witnessing the first two steps of the Hegelian Dialectic in the hands of the new world order.
- Problem – What appears to be a man-made virus is intentionally or unintentionally released into the environment.
- Reaction – People are sickened and died across the globe while they look to their government public health systems to provide a cure or stop to the pandemic. I believe we may soon begin seeing civil unrest and citizens will begin demanding from their governments, safety.
- but what might be 3) the Solution?
As the SARS-CoV-2 crisis continues to unfold, it would appear there are actually embedded Hegelian Dialectic sequences occurring within others. It’s not just one psyop taking place but multiple complex changes in various parts of society AND throughout the world simultaneously.
Governments around the world has an incentive to make this crisis seem as bad as possible in order to accrue as much power for the ruling Oligarchs as possible.
There are a number of solutions being suggested and the ultimate result is yet to be determined.
For example, within the larger coronavirus pandemic is the…
Global Financial Crisis
PROBLEM: Global financial crisis caused by governments locking down their economies.
REACTION: Unemployed and isolated people demand help from their governments.
SOLUTION: A “Great Reset” of capitalism that will revamp all aspects of our societies and economies.
Increasingly sovereign governments are isolating themselves, closing their borders and restricting travel. Could this possibly lead to increasing tensions and world war? Some have suggested SARS-CoV-2 has been weaponized by Communist China and used as a bio-weapon to weaken and collapse the world economy before launching an invasion. The U.S. has certainly flexed it’s military muscle in enhanced counter-narcotics operations.
Another Hegelian Dialectic within the larger coronavirus pandemic is the…
Assault on Liberty and the Constitution
PROBLEM: Unprecedented sickness and death fearmongering caused by SARS-CoV-2.
REACTION: Frightened people cower as they cry out for their governments to protect them from the deadly disease.
SOLUTION: Governments suspend liberties and the U.S. Constitution to provide citizens a sense of safety in exchange for liberty.
As levels of pandemic hysteria continue to set new highs, America and countries around the world are turned into a virtual police state. Dave Hodges writes, “America’s entire governmental structure is and will soon be under attack in ways that are irreversible. The very worst of Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot and the likes of Castro are being installed in the so-called democracies around the world under the guise of COVID-19. Everything from freedom of speech, to warrant-less and permanent detention, to forfeiture of property, to the right to travel, to earn a living to put food on one’s own table, to decide what goes into one’s own body, the elimination of the right to worship Christ without severe restrictions which fundamentally eliminates freedom of religion, etc.”
The Power of Fear
Individuals looking to take advantage of, and manipulate others, have long realized the power of fear. When one is gripped by fear of a threat, real or imagined, their rational and higher cognitive capacities shut down, making them easily manipulable by anyone that promises safety from the threat.
Whenever someone is trying to scare you they are trying to control you.
Like some futuristic science fiction movie, numerous jurisdictions around the country are now requiring citizens to wear face masks when in public, despite there is no scientific evidence that cloth face masks are effective. Airlines are now requiring all passengers to wear face masks. Many private businesses are requiring face masks for their employees and customers.
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said that “the data doesn’t show” that wearing masks in public will help people during the coronavirus pandemic. “What the World Health Organization [WHO] and the CDC [The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] have reaffirmed in the last few days is that they do not recommend the general public wear masks.” A month later, the CDC seemed to reverse its guidance on nonmedical masks, urging the general population to wear them as a “voluntary public health measure.”
Dr. Adams not only suggests people to not wear masks to prevent the coronavirus, but warns that you actually might increase your risk of infection if facemasks are not worn properly. “You can increase your risk of getting it by wearing a mask if you are not a health care provider,” Adams said. “Folks who don’t know how to wear them properly tend to touch their faces a lot and actually can increase the spread of coronavirus.” Washing your hands, staying home when sick and other “everyday preventive actions” are the best protections, he said.
“If the public wear face masks, they run the risk of infecting themselves with flu because every time you touch an infected surface and then you touch the mask, which is on your face, you increase the chances of infecting yourself. Most people do not know how to wear the mask properly and not everybody is aware of it,” said Dr Hend Al Awadhi, head of health promotion and education section at the Dubai Health Authority’s Public Health Protection Department. Instead of wearing a face mask, Dr Al Awadhi said that it is better to wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and avoid close contact with anyone showing the symptoms.
Over 30 countries have made masks compulsory in public, including Germany, Austria and Poland. This is despite the science saying masks do little to protect wearers, and only might prevent them from infecting other people.
Some are enforcing this nonsense in many places by a fine or arrest if you’re not wearing your face mask where you should be. New York Governor Cuomo went as far as attempting to shame citizens into wearing masks saying people who refuse to wear a face mask are being “disrespectful to the nurses, the doctors, the people who have been frontline workers” amid the coronavirus pandemic. Excuse me, Mr. Cuomo, but you are being disrespectful to the human race treating us all like children.
Worldwide Population Being Tortured In Deep State Psyop
However, despite the unnerving situation we find ourselves in, there is an antidote to the power of propaganda and fear mongering: that being, knowledge.
Plato rightly stated that “ignorance is the root of misfortune”, and as long as we remain ignorant of the fact that all too often those who claim to protect us from fear are actually manipulating our fears for their own benefit, then we will be contributing to the misfortune of the world through our ignorant compliance.
How many of us get our knowledge about the coronavirus pandemic from the daily newscast? Don’t allow yourself to just accept whatever you’re told. Do your own research. Examine your own thoughts. Don’t limit yourself to the parameters they set for what is acceptable to think or look into or to FEAR. It’s imperative that if you are going to acquire knowledge, you’ve got to shut off those mass media sources of propaganda. You’re being bombarded repeatedly with fearmongering designed to control you. Repetition is a well-known and prevalent propaganda technique used to solidify falsehoods and perpetuate fear in the public consciousness. By repeating specific phrases (flatten the curve) and warnings (infecting others), and displaying particular symbols and images (people wearing face masks) over and over through various mediums, those in power are able to paralyze entire populations with a fear psychosis.
Fear and Social Control
What is the real agenda of requiring everyone to wear masks?
In the article, Wear Your Face Mask And Savor Your CO2 Breath, Patrick Wood points to a peer reviewed paper on the National Institute of Health‘s website (NIH.gov) pointing in the right direction. The surgical mask is a bad fit for risk reduction was written in 2016 by Dr. Shane Neilson, MD. He notes that “Wearing a mask reinforces fear” and that “This fear surfaces in public policy.” He concludes:
The problem of affect in political terms is a contagious one: fear spreads among the public, leading to intensification of risk management.
Thus, the government’s goal to encourage the continued use of facial masks is to reinforce fear so that their own risk management programs can be intensified.
Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy, is the endgame of the global elite who want control over all resources on earth, including people. The Covid-19 pandemic, or what Patrick Woods calls the “Great Panic of 2020” has been weaponized to create the biggest economic coup in the history of the world. When Technocracy prevails, elected politicians of all stripes will be summarily dismissed and engineers and scientists will run the world directly. For citizens, this is the essence of scientific dictatorship: there is no need for representative government because systems will be run autonomously via algorithm. The threat of killing capitalism and free enterprise is very real and most definitely existential to America as we have known it for over 200 years.
How much more are we going to allow this overturning of our liberties to go? Where do you draw your line in the sand?
Data Driven Science
You hear it everywhere, politicians and globalist experts are parroting that their actions are data driven and based on science… the same bogus fear-based theoretical scientific modeling methods used to show global annihilation caused by climate change. Not even the top scientists can agree on what is real science.
These so-called experts are paraded before the American people in a daily onslaught of deep state propaganda. The president’s advisers, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, have been exposed as frauds and should not be allowed to continue dictating policy. They convinced the president to make bad decisions based on faulty science and speculative computer models stocked with false assumptions. They are up to their necks in conflicts of interest, mostly having to do with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its many global partners pushing population control through the use of mandatory vaccines and a global ID system that can be used for tracking individual Americans. And, these are the people telling the public over and over again they have a solution. No pre-existing agenda here, right?
2.2 Million Dead if No Social Distancing
Governments are using their sham prediction models to convince the public the unconstitutional social distancing measures are necessary to “flatten the curve” or slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2. While it may sound reasonable, there’s no conclusive evidence whatsoever that social distancing reduces the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. Never mind their theory cannot be proven, we should still listen to these experts and permit authoritarian government officials to enforce extreme social distancing measures.
Most of what we’re witnessing in this Great Panic of 2020 is rooted in the work of Professor Neil Ferguson and his employer Imperial College London. Ferguson is a statistician who studied math and physics, but has no medical training whatsoever. When Ferguson released his model that predicted a worst-case estimate of 510,000 deaths in the UK, and 2.2 million deaths in the US, the world stood up. Both heads of government, Trump and Johnson, radically changed course. Instead of allowing people to go about their lives and develop natural immunity, they took the lockdown approach, devastating their economies.
What has Neil Ferguson’s track record been in predicting pandemic outcomes?
- Ferguson was responsible for excessive animal culling during the 2001 Foot and Mouth [actually, Mad Cow disease] outbreak. Ferguson warned the government that 150,000 people could die. Six million animals were slaughtered as a precaution, costing the country billions in farming revenue. In the end, 200 people died.
- Ferguson was accused of creating panic by overestimating the potential death toll during the 2005 Bird [avian] Flu outbreak. Ferguson estimated 200 million could die. The real number was in the low hundreds.
- In 2009, one of Ferguson’s models predicted 65,000 people could die from the Swine Flu outbreak in the UK — the final figure was below 500.
And now based on this dismal record, we’ve closed down global economies including the most powerful economy in the world, the United States. Dr Deborah Birx, coronavirus response coordinator to the Trump administration, told journalists at a March 16 press briefing that the Imperial paper [Ferguson’s computer projection] prompted the CDC’s new advice to work from home and avoid gatherings of 10 or more.
Demonstrating the double standard of the coronavirus plandemic, Mr. Ferguson, the architect of the lockdown world, considers himself above the rest of us. We should be subject to lockdown, but he doesn’t haven’t to follow his own advice. Apparently, after being caught violating the social distancing rules he inspired to meet his married lover, Ferguson has resigned from his post in SAGE, the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. Drs. Fauci and Birx should also resign.
Computer models predicting the spread of disease may be an interesting academic exercise, but in the real world, where lives and nations are on the line, THE DATA, on which the projections are based, are elusive. Without accurate data, what do you have? How about opinion, bias, and conjecture?
Lies, Damned Lies and Coronavirus Statistics
It’s painfully obvious Dr. Fauci and his predictions blew things way out of proportion.
When the real science data flows in, we discover the models were wrong in the first place and massively overestimated the scope of the pandemic. There have been no hundreds of thousands of dead bodies from Covid-19, and the doomsday predictions of “overwhelmed hospitals” never materialized outside of a couple of places in New York City. On April 4th, for example, the IHME model predicted there would be between 120,963 and 203,436 Americans requiring hospitalization, with the average of that range being 164,745. In reality, there were 18,998. Instead of hospitals being overwhelmed with patients, most were emptied as medical staff was furloughed or laid off.
Instead of acknowledging their error, they simply adjust their scientific outcomes to manipulate the facts to fit their “flatten the curve” narrative. That’s not real science, it’s theory at best and misleading speculation at worst.
Were this just $2 wasted on a lottery ticket it wouldn’t matter. But are we hurting millions of people and spending trillions of dollars on nothing more than a hunch based on computer models that are wildly inaccurate?
What does the real data show that conflicts their models?
- 96-98% of coronavirus patients RECOVER.
- Of the 4% that die, 90% of those have comorbitities… heart failure, emphysema, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, immunodeficient, HIV
Bottom line is that while coronavirus is real and people do die, the data does not support closing down the economy and promoting draconian social distancing.
To inflate their case fatality rate numbers and make the virus appear much larger than it really is, patients dying of all sorts of causes are labeled as death by Covid-19. The CDC guidance for labeling deaths even states as much.
Minnesota physician and Republican state senator, Dr. Scott Jensen, went on The Ingraham Angle to discuss how the CDC is encouraging American doctors to over-count coronavirus deaths across the US.
“It’s Ridiculous” – Dr Scott Jensen On Broad Covid-19 Death Count Guidelines & Financial Incentives
Dr. Jensen also disclosed that hospitals are paid more if they list patients with a COVID-19 diagnosis. And hospitals get paid THREE TIMES AS MUCH if the patient then goes on a ventilator.
Early on in the pandemic, experts were telling us those vulnerable individuals with pre-existing conditions and compromised immune systems were most at risk for dying from Covid-19. Doctors across the country are reporting they are being pressured to report just about any death as Covid-19.
Oh come on, what happened to common sense? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that people with pre-existing health conditions and compromised immune systems are more likely to die from ANY condition than healthy people with stronger immune systems.
If we were to follow real proven science regarding the spread of a virus we would be implementing quarantine of infected people. That is to isolate those sick individuals from the healthy population. Quarantine works! But, that’s not what we’re doing with SARS-CoV-2. Instead, we are isolating “non-essential” healthy people through social distancing and “stay-at-home” orders while allowing “essential” workers to continue working. There is no evidence of that being effective and really amounts to house arrest of non-essential people, not quarantine.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. – Psalm 139:14
I’m convinced God created our bodies to properly fight against the germs and viruses prevalent throughout our world. That’s the real magic of our immune system that God created in our bodies. I’m not discounting the value of science as science only discovers what God already created long ago. The problem arises when God is replaced with man, declaring himself to be as God (Genesis 3:1-5). It is man’s faulty reasoning that promotes all the dirty food, dirty water, dirty air, and dirty lifestyles that compromise our immune system that is killing people from Covid-19. When God created man, He also created the food, water, and air we need to live healthy. It’s through the madness of man creating novel foods through GMO and gene editing, introducing chemicals into our water and air (fluoridation and chem-trails, for ex.), contaminated vaccines, and promoting malnutrition that is killing us..
Debate Squashed Through Censorship
To counter the messages contradicting their narrative, greater public/private collaboration is being used to censor and control the flow of information. So-called disinformation and fake news as defined by the ruling authorities is being replaced with the official disinformation and fake news of the globalist elite. Any information that questions or disputes the official narrative is labeled “conspiracy theory” and not reported in the mainstream media and scrubbed from Google, YouTube, Facebook, and other social networking sites. Independent news sources are being financially attacked and increasingly targeted by internet service providers to shut them down.
Another Hegelian Dialectic within the larger coronavirus pandemic is the…
Surveillance, Tracking, and Control of World Population
PROBLEM: Businesses are closed and millions thrown into unemployment as increased testing uncovers more Covid-19 cases.
REACTION: Responding to falsified infection and death rates, frightened people demands their government protect them from the silent enemy.
SOLUTION: Governments provide unprecedented surveillance, tracking, and control of world population to provide citizens a sense of safety in exchange for their freedom.
We’ve already witnessed the restrictions and control of access to travel technologies, government buildings, and financial transactions through the use of “real id‘ technology. Now, I believe we’re seeing the addition of digital tracking of citizens and biometic controls to access of public spaces.
Another of their “solutions” is also becoming apparent:
The deep state is using this Wuhan coronavirus hype to not only attack our global economy and to suppress dissent, but to also promote mandated vaccinations for all.
What more are you expected to give up?
In this Special Edition of ‘From the Editor’s Desk’, Michael Matt asks the question we all want answered: Yes the virus is deadly, but won’t euthanizing the U.S. economy be even deadlier? By the way, why is the future of our country in the hands of a 79-year-old, unelected medical doctor named Fauci? Who is this guy, and what’s his agenda?
COVID19: Globalism’s Perfect Storm
Setting aside his strong Roman Catholic bent, Matt rightly discerns that what’s going on is bigger than partisan politics, Democrat vs. Republican. Michael argues that this involves international intrigue, the WHO, George Soros, Bill Gates, the Trump phenomenon and the Vatican’s globalist Pope Francis. But how? Why? What’s the endgame?
Is this the birth of the New World Order? Or is America heading for civil war between now and November?
Solution for Opening Up America Again
With “non-essential” business closed and millions of people driven to unemployment, citizens began to demand of their governments to re-open the economy and let people work and play again.
Authorities were happy to respond with their solutions mixed with arguments about who gets the say of when America can be reopened and what hoops citizens must jump through to get on with our lives. Will only those “deemed” healthy by a statist government be allowed to return to work?
What will this “science based” re-opening look like?
President Trump announced on April 16th., his plan to re-open America will be done in three graduated phases:
Gatherings larger than 10 people are to be avoided and nonessential travel is discouraged. Large venues like restaurants, movie theaters, sporting venues and places of worship will be allowed to reopen if they “operate under strict physical distancing protocols,” according to the guidelines. Gyms will be also be permitted to reopen “if they adhere to strict physical distancing and sanitation protocols“. Bars, however, “should remain closed.” Schools and youth activities like daycare and camp that are currently should remain closed, and visits to senior living facilities and hospitals should remain prohibited. Businesses are required to close common areas where personnel are likely to congregate and interact, or enforce strict social distancing protocols.
Social distancing should continue to be practiced with limitations of gatherings to no more than 50 people unless precautionary measures are taken. Schools and activities like day care centers and camps can reopen and non-essential travel can resume. Visits to senior care facilities and hospitals, however, will remain prohibited. The large venues, like restaurants, movie theaters and sporting venues, that were allowed to reopen in Phase One can remain open and are allowed to ease their physical distancing protocols to a “moderate” level. Bars can begin operating with “diminished standing-room occupancy,” while gyms can remain open with “strict” distancing sanitation protocols.
“Vulnerable individuals” can resume public interactions but should practice social distancing, according to the guidelines. Low-risk populations should still “consider minimizing time spent in crowded environments.” Worksites can resume normal staffing protocols without restrictions, and visits to senior care facilities and hospitals can resume. People who interact with residents and patients must still remain “diligent regarding hygiene.” Large venues can operate under “limited” social distancing protocols, gyms can remain open with “standard” sanitation protocols and bars can operate with “increased standing room occupancy.”
Read the federal Guidelines for Opening Up America Again
Of course, all of this will be done in accordance with strong testing and a demonstrable decrease in COVID-19 cases. Still, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infection diseases expert, said it would be a “new normal.”
- Continued expansion of surveillance and diagnostic test capacity along with rigorous contact tracing.
Now that the attention has been changed from hospital beds and ventilators, we are now focused on testing being a critical factor in returning to normal.
Enormous profits are being made by hospitals and testing labs with the price of testing ranging from $300 – $6,000 largely paid by insurance plans. [USA Today]
- Businesses allowed to open required to burden financial responsibility of testing and contact tracing.
As outlined in federal guidelines, businesses will now be required to conduct temperature-taking of employees, rapid COVID-19 testing of those suspected of infection, and widespread disinfection efforts in workplaces. They will be responsible for monitoring workforce for indicative symptoms, and not allowing symptomatic people to physically return to work until cleared by a medical provider. Businesses will also be required to develop and implement policies and procedures for workforce contact tracing following employee COVID+ test.
It seems to me this burden will be allot easier for those large corporations and chain stores who are more able to benefit from scale and pass on to the consumer the added cost. Small business owners already operating on small margins will be less able to manage a new federal mandate requiring them to spend huge sums of money in order to conduct business.
- Continued intrusion into the health care industry by federal mandates to hospital capacity and testing facilities.
- Continued mitigation with social distancing requirements.
Officials make clear that the return to normalcy will take time; with federal officials warning that some social distancing measures may need to remain in place through the end of the year to prevent a new outbreak. Store floors are now covered with signage to train people in social distancing, getting everyone accustomed to standing apart and conforming to crazy “non-science” based propaganda.
- Governors are “allowed” to manage their individual states. If states don’t perform as authorities dictate, Washington maintains their power to overrule state plans to enforce their guidance. Of course, the Federal government often influences States compliance by withholding funds states need to operate.
It is still early and the ultimate outcomes are yet known. I do believe there will be a new normal that does not look like the world we experienced last year. New rules are being fashioned for us as we speak. Changes are coming for everything — how we shop for groceries, how we pay for products [cashless?], even how we greet our fellow man [no handshaking!]. If you don’t obey these rules, you will be publicly shamed and blamed as exhibiting anti-social behaviors detrimental to the common good.
It’s also very likely we will experience a second wave of coronavirus later in the fall and technocrats will have more experience and infrastructure in place to lock down their societies quickly with less resistance. The way we “do life” may never return to normal if President Trump doesn’t intervene and take back the reins from these technocrats aligned with the vision of the United Nations, Bill Gates and a host of creepy NGOs like the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Economic Forum. They share the same eugenicist agenda.
