Corona Virus spreading ... US official says no need to worry

When the government tells me I don't need to worry, then I tend to think I really do need to be concerned. But at least one report is quoting some US health officials as saying there is no need for US citizens to worry.

We know there are 4 cases in the USA, 1 case in Canada.

The Canadian case is a man who arrived sick and is in the hospital in Toronto. Canadian health officials seemed to imply that they have probably contacted all the at risk people who may have been in contact with the Chinese national on the inbound flight.

In the US, there is 1 confirmed case in Washington State, 1 in Chicago, 2 in California. I believe all the cases are foreign nationals.

China has QUARANTINED roughly 60 MILLION PEOPLE by cutting off 16 (or more) cities. The epicenter is Wuhan, a city of 11 Million people, but the quarantine was put into place after roughly 5 million people left the city for the Lunar New Year celebration, which is the heaviest travel time in China and typically has more than 100,000,000 people traveling nationally + internationally for the week long holiday period.

Official sources say there are under 2000 cases worldwide, and approximately 50 deaths. The disease is being compared to the Spanish Flu, which killed millions just about 100 years ago, but this is considered far more dangerous.

UN-official sources suggest that at least 100,000 cases exist and the disease is spreading and mutating very quickly.

China scrambles to contain 'strengthening' virus
(Adds comments from mayor of Wuhan)

* Coronavirus' transmission ability getting stronger

* Incubation 1-14 days, infectious during incubation

* China confirms 1,975 people infected, 56 dead

* U.S. to evacuate diplomatic staff, citizens from Wuhan

* China imposes temporary nationwide ban on sale of wildlife

BEIJING/SHANGHAI, Jan 26 (Reuters) - The ability of the new coronavirus to spread is strengthening and infections could continue to rise, China's National Health Commission said on Sunday, with more than 2,000 people in China infected and 56 killed by the disease.

Health authorities around the world are racing to prevent a pandemic after a handful of cases of infection were reported outside China, including in Thailand, Australia, the United States and France.

The mayor of Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak, said he expected another 1,000 new patients in the city, which was stepping up construction of special hospitals.

The newly identified coronavirus has created alarm because much about it is still unknown, such as how dangerous it is and how easily it spreads between people. It can cause pneumonia, which has been deadly in some cases.

China's National Health Commission Minister Ma Xiaowei said the incubation period for the virus can range from one to 14 days, during which infection can occur, which was not the case with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

SARS was a coronavirus that originated in China and killed nearly 800 people globally in 2002 and 2003.

"According to recent clinical information, the virus' ability to spread seems to be getting somewhat stronger," Ma told reporters.

The Lunar New Year holiday, traditionally celebrated by hundreds of millions of Chinese travelling around the country and abroad to see family, began on Friday but has been severely disrupted by the outbreak.

Ma said China would intensify its containment efforts, which have so far included transportation and travel curbs and the cancellation of big events.

The country may extend the week-long Lunar New Year holiday, state broadcaster CCTV reported, citing a meeting hosted by Chinese premier Li Keqiang.

The virus, believed to have originated late last year in a seafood market in Wuhan that was illegally selling wildlife, has spread to cities including Beijing and Shanghai. Hong Kong has six confirmed cases.

The World Health Organisation this week stopped short of calling the outbreak a global health emergency, but some health experts question whether China can contain the epidemic.

Chinese President Xi Jinping described the situation as "grave" on Saturday.

China confirmed 2,051 cases of infection as of 7 p.m. (1100 GMT) on Jan. 26, while the death toll from the virus remained at 56, state broadcaster CCTV reported.

Health officials in Orange County, California, reported that a third case had been registered in the United States in a traveller from Wuhan, who was in isolation and in good condition.

On Saturday, Canada declared a first "presumptive" confirmed case in a resident who had returned from Wuhan. Australia confirmed its first four cases.

No fatalities have been reported outside China.

WILDLIFE SALES BAN

On Sunday, China temporarily banned nationwide the sale of wildlife in markets, restaurants, and e-commerce platforms. Wild and often poached animals packed together in Chinese markets are blamed as incubators for viruses to evolve and jump the species barrier to humans.

Snakes, peacocks, crocodiles and other species can also be found for sale via Taobao, an e-commerce website run by Alibaba.

The New York-based Wildlife Conservation Society called on China to make the ban permanent.

The U.S. State Department said it will relocate personnel at its Wuhan consulate to the United States, while Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his government was working with China to arrange a charter flight for Japanese nationals to return from Wuhan.

The outbreak has prompted widening curbs on movements within China, with Wuhan, a city of 11 million, on virtual lockdown and transport links all-but severed except for emergency vehicles.

CANCELLATIONS AND MISTRUST

Health authorities in Beijing urged people not to shake hands but instead salute using a traditional cupped-hand gesture. The advice was sent in a text message that went out to mobile phone users in the city on Sunday morning.

Beijing also postponed the reopening of the city's schools and universities after the Lunar New Year holiday, state radio reported. Hong Kong had already delayed the reopening of schools to Feb. 17.

China has called for transparency in managing the crisis, after a cover-up of the spread of the SARS virus eroded public trust, but officials in Wuhan have been criticised for their handling of the current outbreak.

"People in my hometown all suspect the real infected patients number given by authorities," said Violet Li, who lives in the Wuhan district where the seafood market is located.

Illustrating the extend of disruption to life in China, overall passenger travel declined by nearly 29% on Saturday, the first day of the Lunar New Year, from a year earlier, with air passengers down nearly 42%, a transportation ministry official said.

Many cinemas across China were closed with major film premieres postponed.

Cruise operators including Royal Caribbean Cruises, and Costa Cruises said they had cancelled a combined 12 cruises that had been scheduled to embark from Chinese ports before Feb. 2.

Hong Kong Disneyland and the city's Ocean Park were closed on Sunday. Shanghai Disneyland, which expected 100,000 visitors daily through the holiday period, has already closed.

Airports around the world have stepped up screening of passengers from China, although some health officials and experts have questioned the effectiveness of these efforts.
 
I heard something interesting on the news. This is kind of fluff info, no professional info or link, just something I heard. There was dr on there who works in a college town and said that they're using what they call their Hangover Remedy for some people who are experiencing fatigue, tension headaches, and muscle pains and aches after having had covid. He said they're using an iv to infuse a concoction (my word, not his) of vitamins, electrolytes, etc. He emphasized that it is not a cure but does seem to temporarily relieve some of the long term symptoms that some people have been experiencing.
 
Ceee, the phrase that is notable in the video is, "By appointment only". Try getting an appointment! We've been trying for weeks because they are not making any more appointments or allowing any more registrations. One of our local pharmacies is giving vaccine shots at the rate of approximately 10 a day. They are fitting appointments in between their usual pharmacy work. There are over 40K people in our rural county. How long will that take? BTW they have also closed registrations.

The video is very encouraging but the reality is not.

Yep, I saw a woman in Houston on the news this morning who asked...What's the use of getting an appointment when you still have to wait in line for 4 hours? Her site must have been a drive-thru place and the video footage showed cars wound around in a very long line.

I'm not eligible quite yet, but it won't be long and I'll be hawking all the places giving the vaccine.
 
Good for you, PG. My area is still pretty pitiful.
Yea, so is mine and it is still impossible to get an appointment for the shots

With me being so isolated up on my little hill, I didn't even know that another of my long time neighbors died last week. Larry was 84, I think, and still actively run cows and cut hay. That makes two good neighbors that I've lost in just over a year. Both of them were here long before I arrived and I've been here over 20-years.

It seems that he had a big family gathering at Thanksgiving. Both he and his brother came down with COVID within two weeks and have been fighting it ever since. He and his brother died within 8 days of one another.

I hate this F**king COVID.

I've seen a few more reports, I won't bore you by posting several, they all say pretty similar things. Here is a story that summarizes everything pretty well. Basically the LONG TERM ISSUES are now being recognized as bigger issues than previously thought.


One in eight recovered COVID patients die from illness complications within 5 months: UK study

By Yaron Steinbuch
Almost a third of recovered COVID-19 patients in a UK study ended up back in the hospital within five months — and up to one in eight died of complications from the illness, according to a report.

Researchers at the UK’s Leicester University and the Office for National Statistics found that out of 47,780 people discharged from the hospital, 29.4 percent were readmitted within 140 days, the Telegraph reported.

Of the total, 12.3 percent ended up dying, it added.

Respiratory disease was diagnosed in 14,140 of the COVID cases after discharge, with 6,085 of the diagnoses in patients who had no history of respiratory conditions.

The mean age of study participants was 65 years.

Many people who suffer long-lasting effects of the coronavirus develop heart problems, diabetes and chronic liver and kidney conditions, according to the report.

The research also found a higher risk of problems developing in various organs after people younger than 70 and ethnic minorities were discharged from the hospital, according to the Guardian.

“People seem to be going home, getting long-term effects, coming back in and dying. We see nearly 30 percent have been readmitted, and that’s a lot of people. The numbers are so large,” study author Kamlesh Khunti said.

“The message here is we really need to prepare for long COVID. It’s a mammoth task to follow up with these patients and the NHS is really pushed at the moment, but some sort of monitoring needs to be arranged,” added Khunti, a professor of primary care diabetes and vascular medicine at Leicester University.

The study — which Khunti described as the largest of people discharged from a hospital after being admitted with COVID-19 — found that survivors were nearly 3½ times more likely to be readmitted, and die, in 140 days than other outpatients.

Khunti said the researchers were surprised that many people were readmitted with a new diagnosis, adding that it was important to make sure people were placed on protective therapies, including statins and aspirin.

“We don’t know if it’s because COVID destroyed the beta cells which make insulin and you get Type 1 diabetes, or whether it causes insulin resistance, and you develop Type 2, but we are seeing these surprising new diagnoses of diabetes,” he said.

“We’ve seen studies where survivors have had MRS scans and they’ve cardiac problems and liver problems,” Khunti added. “These people urgently require follow-up and the need to be on things like aspirin and statins.”

Dr. Charlotte Summers, a lecturer in intensive care medicine at the University of Cambridge who was not involved in this study. told the Guardian: “There’s been so much talk about all these people dying from COVID … but death is not the only outcome that matters.

“The idea that we have that level of increased risk in people … particularly young people, it means we’ve got a lot of work to do,” she added.​

So I wonder what that means as far as a vaccine is concerned?
 
Bob, I can believe everything said in your post. I mentioned before on here that a guy I know, who owns a HVAC company in our little town, had caught COVID and was having a really hard time with it. he's in his late 40s. I saw him after he was discharged from hospital and he looked like crap. I saw him again last week and he still looked like crap. He said that he still couldn't breathe. He's been for chest X-rays and an MRI and the doctor said that his lungs looked as if he had smoked two packs a day for his whole life. He's never smoked one cigarette in his entire life. There's a lot to this COVID that we still don't know or understand.
 
I'm not sure what this post is trying to point out?

Is it that the deaths are primarily older people?

If so I think that is well established. In my state (Indiana) the vaccine roll out is phased in by age. Those over 80 first. Now it's those over 70. The website shows that registration for those over 60 will be available to receive the vaccine come soon (maybe 1-2 weeks?). Age is a clear risk factor and we know the vast majority of deaths to Covid and complications arisen due to Covid are in the over 65 year old age population.

What we are seeing now, particularly with the new mutations, is that the Covid complications and hospitalizations are now affecting younger people. In fact younger people are now making up larger % of the people being hospitalized for Covid.

One would have to wonder if a retrospective study, like the one above from Cambridge, done a year from today, would show results that are skewed lower in age, which might be logical, based on the younger ages being hospitalized due to the mutated strains of Covid. We all know that death is actually a lagging indicator, trailing hospitalizations by nearly a month on average. Just like hospitalizations are a lagging indicator, trailing infections by approximately 2 weeks.
 
Simple plain speak. Refreshing to hear.

I do believe the data he is using on mask is incomplete. Using metadata shows his analysis correct, but, as we have discussed here, there are many factors with masks and mask usage. Some masks actually work, some are simply face coverings that comply with laws. Education on mask type, qualify and effectiveness is non-existent as is there an absolute lack of mask handing education.

That said many of us have pointed out that it is silly to forbid shopping at the locally owned-independent stores while allowing congregation in the national super stores like WalMart to persist.



Why Hardly Anyone Trusts The Virus Experts​

by John Rubino ◆ January 17, 2021 7 Comments
Early in the pandemic, “trust the science!” could actually be used in a debate without attracting derisive laughter. But as the flip-flops, mistakes and, yes, lies have accumulated, a consensus seems to be forming that the health care authorities are no more trustworthy than the people running Congress or the Fed.

For proof, let’s start with vitamin D, which sure seems to lessen the severity of coronavirus infections. As the chart below illustrates (couldn’t find the source, but google “covid vitamin D” and you’ll find lots of studies that track with this data), people with higher levels of vitamin D in their bloodstream tend to experience covid-19 as a non-event while people low levels found the infection life-threatening.

vitamin D covid virus experts


There are obvious questions about causality here, so calling vitamin D a “cure” is going way too far. But if it has even a marginal effect – and the data suggest considerably more — a rational government would, you’d think, be handing out vitamin D like Halloween candy. In fact, since we’re mandating/prohibiting all kinds of other behaviors, we might expect vitamin D consumption to be required along with masks and social distancing.

Even covid-czar Anthony Fauci recently said: “If you are deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection. So I would not mind recommending — and I do it myself — taking vitamin D supplements.”

So why aren’t family-sized bottles of vitamin D arriving in the mail from the CDC? A cynic might wonder if the fact that Big Pharma doesn’t make much money from cheap, widely available supplements plays a role in the government’s apparent lack of interest.

Now about those lockdowns. Tom Woods has been producing charts that appear to show virtually no difference in virus outcomes between US states with aggressive lockdown policies and those without. California, for instance, has shuttered most of its small businesses and imposed widespread curfews, while Florida hasn’t. Here’s the result:

covid Florida California virus experts


As for the rest of the world – where they’re supposedly doing better than the US – the pattern of zero correlation between lockdowns and virus spread seems to be holding. France imposed a full national lockdown in March – after which the virus spiked. Then they added mask mandates (indoor and outdoor), with fines attached. And daily new cases soared.

France covid virus experts


Then of course there’s the lying. Dr. Fauci first claimed that masks don’t help – when he believed they did help — because he feared mask shortages for health care workers. He also admits to changing the official line on herd immunity according to what he thinks we’re ready to hear.

And, in what sounds more like incompetence than dishonesty, he’s apparently been answering the question “when will life go back to normal?” with whatever pops into his head at the time. In early 2020, it was the coming Autumn. In July, it was “a year or so.” More recently it’s “well into 2021.”

But the biggest and by far the most outrageous reason for this growing mistrust has to be the World Health Organization which, well, read for yourself:

WHO official urges world leaders to stop using lockdowns as primary virus control method

The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19 urged world leaders this week to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method.”
“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said to The Spectator’s Andrew Neil. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”
Nabarro went on to point out several of the negative consequences lockdowns have caused across the world, including devastating tourism industries and increased hunger and poverty.
“Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays,” he said. “Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. … Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”
In the United States, lockdowns have been tied to increased thoughts of suicide from children, a surge in drug overdoses, an uptick in domestic violence, and a study conducted in May concluded that stress and anxiety from lockdowns could destroy seven times the years of life that lockdowns potentially save.
The health care establishment could have saved a lot of time — and embarrassment — by just asking regular people about this stuff. But then they would have made a lot less money.

I don't want this comment to get all political. Fauci is pretty much a goner. I'm hoping this new woman will tell it like it is. I'd much rather just hear the truth, face it, and deal with it than for someone to try and sugarcoat it so as not to scare people. I'm still going to wear a mask when I go out.
 
We've had 3 more deaths since yesterday but overall numbers are down. Two of the deaths occurred at the same nursing home where there was an outbreak in November. So far, they've had 25 deaths in a 158 bed facility.
 
I'm not sure what this post is trying to point out?

Is it that the deaths are primarily older people?
Old people and people with comorbidities. We need to be realistic about these statistics and the fear mongering that is being used to advanced political agendas.

But in two or so days, it will all be roses, unicorns, and rainbows. Miraculously, we will quickly stop hearing about Covid and the news will be littered with reports of gun violence and how we need to round up all you evil domestic terrorists.

You will notice I rarely talk about DEATHS because I do believe that the media is hyping deaths.

Most of my focus has been on the stress to the overall healthcare system and the complications that seem to be unreported/under reported. I've tried to do a fair bit of posting on alternate treatments too.

I do that because I think those are not political issues.

I have a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon. She swears by vitamin D for this and a lot of other things.
