STATUS AND NOTES ON THE CORONA VIRUS DISEASE

STATUS AND NOTES ON CORONA VIRUS DISEASE 2-29-2020

This post is an update and summary on the developing epidemic of Corona Virus Respiratory Disease (COVID-19) in mainland China and world-wide.

Here are the morbidity and mortality numbers updated today – 2-29-20.

  • On 02/29/2020 – a total 86,022 patients diagnosed with the disease. WW.
  • 2,942 patients DIED. 3.4% mortality.  RECOVERED patients –39,801.
  • Sixty-eight (68) cases in the U.S. One patient died. 12 cases in Canada.
  • South Korea – 3150 cases; Japan – 241; Italy – 1,128; Iran 593 cases 43 died. (7.25%)
  • Patients are contagious 14-24 days prior to, OR after showing symptoms.
  • Patients can be symptom free then re-emerge as symptomatic!
  • Significantly, a first case of a dog testing positive for COVID-19 documented.

 

The Chinese central government is technically the only source for mortality and morbidity information in Mainland China.  The Chinese government is the outside face of the Chinese Communists Party.  The rulers of China report what serves their public relations and political purposes.  More reliable sources for information originate in Hong Kong.  Hong Kong is more open in terms of freer public discourse.

The numbers cited above are mostly from sources in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Alternative morbidity and mortality data leaked out from sources in Taiwan.  These data claim that there are 154,023 diagnosed patients. There are other sick patients who were not confirmed – 79,808. And, there were 24,589 cases of deaths in Wuhan, Hubei Province.   That brings the death rate from Corona Virus Disease in China to a range of 10- 16%.

Again, the larger numbers are from information leaked in Taiwan. On the other hand the larger numbers of cases and death rate are similar to the result of what epidemiologists predicted based on academic research models.
I have cited the medical sources on-line for these numbers on Facebook page @Lendermedical.

Over fifty countries reported infected patients.

During the last four weeks, while following closely sources including the World Health Organization, the U.S. CDC, and free media outlet observations, I formed some opinions which I share below.

First, the internet is rife with theories of conspiracies.  I ignore those.

Second, governmental sources of information are not objective and untrustworthy sources of data.  The WHO – is a political organization. Its numbers are not to be trusted.  India the second most populous country in the world reported only 3 cases.  Makes no sense.  Indonesia the 4th most populous country reports no disease on its territory.  Seems like a governmental cover-up.

Third, the initial source of the COVID-19 contamination may have been at the Chinese institute of biological research in Wuhan.  A tank of viral soup could have been spilled by error into the sewer system, and hence spread to the environment.

Fourth, viruses are smart and selfish.  Viruses mutate and find their ways to flourish among humans and animals.  It’s called Zoonosis.

Fifth, the incubation time from infection to clinical symptomatology varies.  It was thought that 14 days of absent clinical symptomatology ensures non-contagiousness. This is not the case.  Patients may be diagnosed with Corona Virus Disease, acquire immunity to the virus, then recover and go about their life.  It appears now that recovered patients may be re-infected with the mutated version of the virus and thus keep propagating it.

Sixth, the COVID-19 has affinity to lungs.  It causes lung damage in the form of alveolar pneumonia.  Death ensues in 61% of patients with pneumonia who were admitted to ICU.

Seventh, a vaccine to protect from the virus is months away into the future.

Eighth, it is possible that some currently existing antiviral medications may be beneficial, facilitating patients’ recovery.

In the meantime practicing strict personal hygiene is the best precaution.
Quarantine of sick patients is an effective public health measure.

The basic principles to reduce the general risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections consist of the following:

  1. Avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
  2. Frequent hand-washing, especially after direct contact with ill people or their environment.
  3. Avoiding unprotected contact with farm or wild animals.
  4. People with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
  5. Within healthcare facilities, enhanced standard infection prevention and control practices in hospitals, especially in emergency departments.

 

Precautionary steps to protect you – as an airline passenger on a flight are:

  1. Avoid sitting near people with symptoms of respiratory illness.
  2. Take a window seat far from the aisle.
  3. Avoid walking around the plane.
  4. Avoid touching items on the plane.
  5. Use hand sanitizer upon returning to your seatafter using the lavatory. Even if you followed hand-washing guidelines, using soap for at least 20 seconds, you may have touched a germ-laden handle or overhead bin afterwards.

 

I continue to update the morbidity and mortality data on this blogpost as new data is made available.

CORONA VIRUS EPIDEMIC – WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW

CORONA VIRUS EPIDEMIC UPDATE

This post is an update and summary on the developing epidemic of corona virus respiratory disease in the province of Hubei in mainland China.
At – 8AM, CST, 02/03/2020 – there are 17,490 patients with this disease world-wide. 321 patients died.  (2.1%).  Nine (9) confirmed cases are in the U.S.
The province of Hubei is home to about 60 million people. They are all in “Lock Down”.  That is about the population size of Italy.  No travel in or out of the province is allowed.

The transmission of the virus from person to person is thought to be by droplets from cough or sneeze.  Therefore, preventive mask wearing in public has become a requirement.  Further observations suggest that the virus is also transmitted through fecal contamination of food and deficient personal hygiene.

As we reported earlier, a study in the prestigious British medical journal – The Lancet – estimated that about 75,815 people in Hubei are infected with Corona Virus.

In order to accommodate the isolation of the patients in the city of Wuhan, anew hospital was built from prefabricated materials in 8 days.  It is staffed by 1,400 medical workers deployed by the military.

A shortage of protective masks was reported in the City of Wuhan and the province of Hubei.

More than 2,400 Hong Kong public hospital workers staged a strike on Monday morning after the top microbiologist agreed with their central demand that the government close border with mainland China.

THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION RECOMMENDATIONS TO HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS AND THE PUBLIC

The basic principles to reduce the general risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections include the following:

  • Avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
  • Frequent hand-washing, especially after direct contact with ill people or their environment.
  • Avoiding unprotected contact with farm or wild animals.
  • People with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
  • Within healthcare facilities, enhance standard infection prevention and control practices in hospitals, especially in emergency departments.

Note:
I publish information about the Corona Virus respiratory disease based on credible medical sources and prime medical journals. Information on the morbidity and mortality of this epidemic disease is derived from sources in Hong Kong.  Information originating inside the PRC is unverifiable.

Questions are welcomed.

NANCY’S CAKE GETS MOLDY

NANCY’S CAKE GETS MOLDY

I expected that an experienced grandmother of nine grandchildren, as Nancy Pelosi is, would know that she can enjoy eating her cake but she can’t keep it whole at the same time. Because – the cake – Nancy’s cake – gets moldy by the day.
Her cake gets oldie and moldy every day.
The impeachment peaches over the cake get moldier with every hour that passes.
The proverb literally means “you cannot simultaneously retain your cake and eat it”.  Once the cake is eaten, it is gone. It means that one cannot have two incompatible things, or that no one should try to have more than is reasonable.

The phrase you can’t have your cake and eat it too means that there are two options open to Nancy:
She can enjoy an impeachment trial in the Senate, or she can fold the tent and go chill elsewhere.

She can’t have both because the two options conflict with each other, so she can only pick one.
Nancy’s Show is getting stale by the day.  The Box Office proceeds are dwindling.  Her political dividends are shrinking.  Actually she’s living off her political savings account.

Nancy’s favorite print media outlet – The New York Times analyzed her dilemma eight years ago.  A very good piece of academic linguistic analysis:

SEARCH ENGINES BIASED

SEARCH ENGINES BIASED

Everyone who uses the internet for search of an “item”, a “something”, accepts the fact that the big search engines are biased.

All search engines are biased because they are owned by different internet giant corporations who collect as much as available information there is in cyberspace.

Every high technology giant wants to grab the users’ data and identity. Each search engine attempt to outsmart all other search engines and sells it.   It’s all a given to the users.

Sometimes a search engine of one technology giant such as Microsoft’s Bing Search Engine ignores web sites hosted by Google web-services.
The reason is simple: why promote the competitor’s web service?
The case in point is the web-site, www.bibledealer.com .

Bing Search ignores this web site just because it’s hosted by Google’s hosting service.

The use of blogger.com is free. On the other hand Microsoft does not provide free site hosting as Google does.
Well, this is one more reason why I avoid using Microsoft’s Edge browser. Yahoo Search is not in this big-league.

GUTENBERG BIBLE

 

A few facts about the Gutenberg Bible

The Morgan Library & Museum in New York is the only library in the world that has three copies, out of 49 copies known to exists, that were printed in 1455 Johannes Gutenberg.  Only one of the three copies in the Morgan Library is a complete original Gutenberg volume.

There are only five complete original Gutenberg editions (volumes) in the U.S. (Morgan Library NY, LO Congress, DC, Yale Beinecke Library, Harvard Widener Library, University of Texas Austin).

In 1968 Brussel & Brussel Publishers in NY, produced a limited edition of a 3 volumes reduced facsimile in black and white of the complete Gutenberg Bible.  Two volumes of the Hebrew Bible and the third volume is the New Testament. The New Testament volume has illustrations in color.

MANAGE YOUR BEING

MANAGE YOUR BEING

How do you manifest?

By being that which you want to manifest.  By being aware, that you are aware.

It is your awareness of being that manifests.  Your awareness manifests all things that you are aware of.

Life always gives a person that which the person is aware of himself or herself.

Your awareness of your being delivers to you the quality or attribute that you claim for yourself.

Very few people ask, ‘What is it, about me, that knows this flow of thoughts, feelings, and perceptions? With what am I aware of my experience?’

All people have the experience of being aware, but relatively few people are aware that they are aware.

Awareness knows of its own being in us.  Our self-awareness is our fundamental and most intimate experience.

So how is that being aware manifests itself?

First a mental state of general amnesty towards other people is very important.  We have to release others from all condemnation so that we will be free to rise to any higher level that is necessary in order to be fully aware of our being.

Life always gives us – human beings – that which we – each person- give him or herself.

This is the requirement of manifestation.
Every person’s conception of their own self is being their reward.

The consciousness of any human being is his Universe.

There is no latent awareness. There is no subconscious or unconscious awareness.

We are aware of our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and perceptions.

Man is the measure of all things.

Humans see their own Universe.

Humans gauge their own time.

 

Note to the wise:

Your advice on “Time Management” is a fallacy:

Time has it’s own pace.

We mismanage our priorities and blame lack of time.

Get rid of the “To Do List”

Instead, have a primal being aware list and manage your personal “To Be Aware List“.
