Panicdemic (#2)

Modern Lifestyles Are Trying To Kill You

  • Exposure to air pollution and COVID-19 mortality in the United States

    The majority of the pre-existing conditions that increase the risk of death for COVID-19 are the same diseases that are affected by long-term exposure to air pollution. We investigate whether long-term average exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) increases the risk of COVID-19 deaths in the United States.

    A small increase in long-term exposure to PM2.5 leads to a large increase in COVID-19 death rate, with the magnitude of increase 20 times that observed for PM2.5 and all-cause mortality.

    No surprise there. We know that air pollution damages brains, lungs, and bodies. When a stressor like COHIVID-19 comes around, it will kill those most affected. This probably also explains the bump in African-American results in part, since inner city communities have terrible air.

  • Smoking marijuana could make the lungs more susceptible to COVID-19, experts say as cannabis sales spike

    The CDC was able to analyze 7,162 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases and found that 656 of them, or 9.2%, reported having a chronic lung condition.

    This means that most were unaware of their underlying health issues.

  • Obesity is major COVID-19 risk factor, says French chief epidemiologist

    Delfraissy said 88% of those infected with the coronavirus suffered only severe flu-like symptoms.

    Following the swine flu and SARS, it makes some people sick and avoids others, and of those sick, most have a nasty flu but the unhealthy pop off.

  • Intelligence report warned of coronavirus crisis as early as November

    “Analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event,” one of the sources said of the NCMI’s report. “It was then briefed multiple times to” the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff and the White House.

    Hindsight is 20-20 but actually blind. When you receive many reports of possible crises, with each organization emphasizing its pet crisis in order to gain more importance in the hierarchy, many important things get overlooked in the constant flow of hysteria, panic, and mania. Do you trust this system to ever get it right?

  • Truckers warn supply chain in jeopardy; confusion reigns on shutdown

    If drivers start testing positive, there could be a tremendous reduction in drivers willing to risk everything, Spencer said.

    A sane system would start teaching backup truck drivers. Are we that organized?

  • Differential COVID-19-attributable mortality and BCG vaccine use in countries

    COVID-19-attributable mortality among BCG-using countries was 5.8 times lower [95% CI 1.8-19.0] than in non BCG-using countries.

    It turns out that building up basic immunity makes the immune system more likely to be able to fend off unknowns.

  • Taiwanese team finds key antibodies in COVID-19 patients

    Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are immune system proteins that are created in the lab. They are made by identical immune cells that are all clones of a unique parent cell. Like the body’s own antibodies, mAbs recognize specific targets.

    The mAbs, made based on antibodies in B cells of the patients, are 13 strains targeting the spike protein (S) of the coronavirus and 12 strains targeting the nucleocapsid protein (N) of the virus.

    Help is coming.

  • Big pool of coronavirus cases going undetected, German researchers say

    They concluded that on average about 6 per cent of cases were detected in the 40 countries studied, and the only way to prevent a renewed outbreak of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, was to do widespread testing followed by isolation of infected people.

    Translation: 94% of the people who get this disease either do not notice or do not think it significant enough to report.

The Secondary Effects

  • Checkpoints have gone up along the TX/LA state line

    In accordance with a recent order from Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Texas State Troopers are advising those who try to travel from Louisiana into Texas that they must quarantine themselves for a 14 day period upon enter the Lone Star State.

    This should be normal for American states. Places are different; encouraging travel between them just erases those differences. The pre-Constitution government under The Articles of Confederation and the Confederacy just won a big historical point here. You can win the war, but can you win the cause-effect fact pattern?

  • Why African Americans are dying at higher rates from Covid-19

    “We know that blacks are more likely to have diabetes, heart disease, lung disease,” the nation’s top doctor, Surgeon General Jerome Adams told CBS News on Tuesday.

    These chronic illnesses, which are in turn linked to poverty and structural racism, can lead to more serious forms of the Covid-19 disease.

    Structural racism? More likely, they are genetic, exacerbated the tendency of inner city communities to be awash in pollution. The best option for the impoverished comes in the form of ghettos, which by their nature as worthless land, lower their housing costs.

  • Defective masks were sent to Toronto long-term care home where residents died of COVID-19

    “After reports of ripping and tearing, further inspection of the masks determined that the masks ordered did not meet the city’s standard and specifications,” the city said, adding that Toronto’s occupational health safety staff has been contacted

    This pandemic has revealed the flip side of modernity: the fragility and incompetence of just about everything. Even while Trump leads well, he is commanding a vast system comprised of bureaucrats. Each one of them is thinking only about how to promote himself by avoiding risk and seizing opportunities to draw attention to himself. Social mobility leads to the condition, where everyone is trying to advance his individual power, wealth, and status at the expense of society at large. Consequently, everything we have is surface-level, based in appearance, and nothing is durable; all of the bean-counters that we have promoted through our meritocracy are good at school and tests, but unable to think outside of what they have been taught. The Prole Kingdom of Democracy has failed. For more ineptitude comedy, check out how democracy has been destroying medical supplies to make room for migrants.

  • Coronavirus: Video footage shows inmates burying coffins in New York

    The newly released footage shows more than a half-dozen white-clad prisoners lower wooden coffins into the ground, then stand by as a bulldozer and backhoe dump mounds of dirt on at least 20 of the boxes, which are lined up at the end of a long trench.

    Burials are a common sight on the island, where the city has used inmates to inter the Big Apple’s anonymous and unclaimed dead for 150 years.

    Large cities filled with diversity seem to get hit hard by this epidemic. Perhaps genetic differences have a lot to do with it.

  • Trump threatens to defund WHO as US coronavirus deaths surge past 12,800

    In Washington, Trump told reporters that he was “going to put a very powerful hold” on funding to the WHO, the UN body whose biggest contributor is the US, accusing it of being “very biased towards China.”

    “They called it wrong,” he said of a WHO travel warning on China. “They could have called it months earlier.”

    Following revelations that the WHO and UN are effectively controlled by China, Trump wants us out of these organizations. Connection to the coronavirus is incidental: the WHO, like other international organizations, operates on the basis of wealth transfer from the first world to the third, in order to keep up our ideological commitment to equality. We can lose them with no risk to ourselves.

  • Coronavirus: When using the c-word gets you blacklisted

    The New York Times estimates that it will lose 10% of its digital revenues this year because brands are refusing to advertise on pages with coronavirus-related stories. In 2019, NYT achieved total digital revenues of $800 million. A watchdog for Britain’s national newspaper sector reports that, if the pandemic lasts another three months, publishers will have 50 million pounds ($62 million, €57 million) less to fund quality journalism at a time when reliable, timely information is critical. That represents nearly 30% of total digital revenue, according to Newsworks, the UK industry’s marketing body.

    Brands do not want to see their logos next to coronavirus news, since who wants to be associated with disease, panic, and systemic failure? Newspapers dealt with this problem by letting big companies buy more expensive ads closer to the front of the newspaper, but online firms work not by a linear page-order but by keyword-linked ads. This means that some news, and some topics, will sell zero ads. With this revelation, the idea of internet advertising takes another hit. Soon we will realize that the dot-com boom is just as fake as climate change or most claims in your newspaper about Donald Trump.

  • 70 percent of fake COVID-19 news from China: Investigation Bureau

    Of the 271 fake news cases the MJIB was investigating, 196 originated from China, and 35 suspects have been handed over to prosecutors, according to Chang.

    Zero surprise. Leftist societies run on propaganda. How much of our news will turn out to be fake once all the facts are out?

  • The links in the PPE supply chain “have been broken” as hospitals battle coronavirus

    “We are all shopping China to try to get these materials and we’re all competing against each other,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at a press conference.

    Better if everything you need is produced locally. In addition, that way you can put up the roadblocks and avoid any crisis that originates somewhere else.

  • Black, Asian and Hispanic House caucus chairs unite in ‘no tolerance’ for coronavirus racism

    Leaders also took a stand against rhetoric that promoted the racist association between the disease and location or ethnicity, including terms like “Chinese virus” and “Wuhan virus,” saying it could cause people to misdirect their anger and put Asian Americans in harm’s way.

    When times get tough, minorities unite against the majority, even if many of these anti-Asian hate crimes are committed by fellow minority groups.

  • California county threatens $1,000 fine for not wearing face masks in public

    Frederico said the tough mandate, which went into effect Sunday at midnight, was aimed at slowing the spread of the highly contagious virus in the county, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, and beyond.

    Again we see the advantage of culture: when people perceive themselves as group united by similarity, they work for the health and sanity of that group, which means that they enforce good practices by ostracizing those who refuse to obey. With civil rights, culture went out the window, and now instead we have Sugar Daddy government coming in to force people to conform to obvious needs. Sweden took the opposite approach and told each citizen to be responsible, avoiding the enforcement crisis that will now expand across the USA as local communities one-up each other for headlines.

  • Fauci: ‘Looks like’ US deaths will be lower than original projection

    A closely watched University of Washington model is now projecting about 60,000 deaths in the U.S.

    Most of these were on their way out anyway. Sad, but not a game-ender. Now that we have created a second Great Depression in response, can we admit that modernity is inept?

  • Officials warned Canada couldn’t enforce coronavirus quarantine for travellers from China

    Federal, provincial and territorial health departments agreed not to order tens of thousands of travellers arriving in Canada from China to quarantine in February in order to reduce pressure on public health resources, according to a memo addressed to Health Minister Patty Hajdu and signed by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s president and chief public health officer.

    Triage comes to you with socialized medicine. The system has only so many resources, so to make their figures look good, they dump infected people into the population in order to cause a crisis so that they can get the funding that they need.

  • More than half of Americans think China should pay coronavirus reparations, poll shows

    Per the poll, nearly 90 percent of Republicans believe China, where the coronavirus originated, is responsible for the spread while two-thirds of Democrats surveyed said the same.

    Good. The West has been paying reparations in various forms for years; if guilt applies to us, it does to them as well. This will further help dismantle the globalism that made a localized SARS outbreak into a pandemic.
