It Is Time To End Wuhan Virus Insanity Now
Rest In Peace to all of the victims of the Chinese Wuhan Corona Virus, AKA, COVID-19. No one wanted to see this happen. It is a tragedy that the CCP covered up the outbreak for so long and still are not cooperating in any meaningful way with our scientists, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths world-wide.
Shutting down our country and the world for that matter for over a month now no longer makes any sense. I’m not sure that it ever has. Now that we have some real data, perhaps some level minds can prevail. At this point, I’m not holding my breath.
The initial hysteria had a lot to due with the fact that the Wuhan Virus was something that we haven’t seen before, accompanied by a researcher in England issuing the Imperial College Model projection which claimed that over 2 million Americans could die if this was unchecked, and close to a million in the UK. Predictions for most other countries in the western world were equally as dire. This guy is a long time expert, the only problem is that every single modeling prediction that he has issued has been wrong. It looks that his initial projections will be off by a factor of 100, maybe more.

How it began may have very well been from an infected researcher at a top level biological facility in Wuhan, China. No one knows that it was from a live bat when the horseshoe bat in question is native 600 miles away from Wuhan, and supposedly they don’t sell bats at that Wuhan wet market.
We first learned of this biological crisis in a nursing home in Washington before anyone knew how it spread or what it was. China and the WHO was saying that it didn’t spread person to person. Direct contact only. Right.
Towards the end of January, President Trump ended all air traffic from China. He was called a racist and worse. Pelsoi encouraged celebrating the Chinese New Year in San Fransisco and Mayor DeBlasio made similar comments in NYC.
Unfortunately Dyngus Day got cancelled in my neck of the woods.
Sadly, this crisis seems to have been politicized. See anything that Speaker Pelosi has said about this virus. Most if not all state governors have been more kind, if only to boost up their federal FEMA dollars. NY Gov Cuomo has created a new art form.
Speaking of Cuomo, there is a new MIT study which stated that the virus spread so fast in NYC mostly due to mass transit. The subway, and buses. Duh! Remind me again why I am against subsidizing mass transit.

Evidence That the Virus Is Much Less Deadly Than People Feared Weakens the Case for Maintaining Lockdowns
The argument initially was that we should take measures to insure that our hospitals were not over-whelmed. Instead we are seeing empty hospital beds everywhere, and people needing hip and knee replacements and more are being put off down the road for life and pain-easing surgeries. That, and hospital staff are being laid off due to lack of work.
We were told that we needed to shut down our economy in order that our hospitals would not be overwhelmed by COVID19 patients. That strategy worked so well that today many hospitals are occupied at rates of 30-50%.
Thanks to the ban on non-emergency procedures, the Rochester campus is operating at 35 to 40 percent capacity, and surgical volume is at 25 to 30 percent of the typical level. The company is now projecting a $3 billion revenue loss.
irrespective of whether the country quarantined like Israel, or went about business as usual like Sweden, coronavirus peaked and subsided in the exact same way.
suggesting a true mortality rate of .12% – .35%. The seasonal flu is typically around .10%
The death rate in New York State isn’t 7.4%, it is actually .75%. The recently ended influenza season numbers from the CDC indicate possibly 56,000,000 cases of flu, 740,000 hospitalizations, and 62,000 deaths.
Several states have taken delivery of Asian tests, which had defective reagents.
I read a piece earlier that stated that the Wuhan Virus has already mutated over 30 times. If it’s three times, it’s not good. Which means that an effective vaccine may not ever be in the cards. The annual influenza vaccination is at best an educated guess as to which strain of the flu will present itself the next season. Effective odds of guessing correctly are around 50-50, which is why I refuse to get one. I have had a lifetime pneumonia shot, since that is the leading cause of death with the ‘flu. Your mileage may vary.
We will either ride this storm out, or it’s the end of civilization. Either way, it’s time to end the nonsense control of personal freedom which seems more than a little fascistic. We will either live or die either way.

I have never been a big fan of mass transit. Disease is as good a reason if not better as any.

‘She has lied since day one’: Critics fed up with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer amid coronavirus crisis
Whitmer’s order has literally led to box stores taping off items as not for sale like vegetable and flower seeds, and prohibited buying gas for a motorboat to go fishing. Along with going to your cabin in the north. How any of this leads to bending the curve to prevent hospitals over-flowing is anyone’s guess. I’d guess that it has nothing to do with it. This is a woman who thinks she can be Veep and then POTUS when Biden steps down due to dementia. It ain’t happening.
This link is a little dated, but it turns out that Whitmer did not request FEMA assistance and blamed Trump for her neglect.
