Untold Millions ≠ 15 Cases

ADDENDUM: If there are problems accessing the above RoyLab Stats RealTime Counter, try Clicking Here.

This post’s headline refers to Donald J. Trump’s fallacious (02/26/20) coronavirus claim…

“You have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

As accurate and current as this Real Time Counter is, what it fails to report are the uncounted tears; of the patients, the medical professionals who are trying to save them, and last but not least, all who are mourning those, who did not make it back home… well… at least not back to their homes found on earth.

BTW…  if you’ve been guessing that coronavirus will soon be done with us… GUESS AGAIN!

Stay Safe at Home! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!

Stay on Board with the following life saving advice, too…

[1] Scrub hands often (at least 20 seconds each time), [2] Cover all coughs and sneezes, [3] Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, [4] Observe social distancing protocols (remain at least 2 meters / 6 feet apart, [5] Wear protective face masks in public, [6] Avoid large crowds, [7] socially isolate at home, [8] Self-quarantine if you’re feeling ill / seek medical professionals’ help if necessary, [9] Know that you can be asymptomatic and still be spreading COVID-19 to others, and [10] Some epidemiologists now believe mere speaking can shed coronavirus; human airborne “droplets” remaining contagious for long periods of time. Ergo, it’s possible to contract COVID-19 even if you are the only one in the vicinity. Our best defense is to WEAR OUR MASKS every time we’re in public… watch video, below, for further details…

Those Who “Get It” Won’t Get It / Won’t Spread It

This clip’s title is just a tad too specific. Students are not the only ones in need of YouTuber TIKIBOOM1’s spot on tutorial, where he virtually makes the invisible visible. Indeed, there are plenty of governors and a certain, science denier “world leader” who “think” too conservatively. As such, at present, they’re oblivious to just how easily Novel Coronavirus gets spread from person to inanimate objects to person… from person to person… even from person to pet to person. Worse yet, the infected, who are asymptomatic, only mildly ill and even “fully” recovered are spreading this deadly contagion at an alarming rate… hence our still raging pandemic.

So far (since 03/21/2020), TIKIBOOM1’s video has tallied only 332,792 views and I must say… if you’ll excuse the wordplay…

This is one video that really, Really, REALLY needs to go VIRAL.

Spread the word… not Novel Coronavirus!

Stay Safe! Stay Home! Stay Healthy!

Would he put his money where his mouth is?

 

Just so nobody gets the wrong idea about me…

• I’d never order anybody to do what I’m about to suggest.
• I’d never, ever even ask anybody to volunteer to do this.
• I’d do my utmost to try to stop them if they did volunteer.

That duly noted…

Let’s discuss the coronavirus pandemic, the conservative in their thinking (in more ways than one) politicians and their like-minded, mindless godawful propaganda ministers. Hell… let’s even toss in the charlatan, pea-brain preachers, too.

By and large, what we’re dealing with, here, are impatient, whiny, science denying kindergarten / nursery school drop-outs, who’d rather save the economy than human lives.

To that end, they want to ignore the following admonishment from the most respected epidemiologists and medical professionals…

Do NOT end / ease up on social isolating / distancing tactics too damned soon! To do so would be to risk a coronavirus rampage, redux, even deadlier than what we’ve already got.

Hmm… maybe each science denier should put his money where his mouth is? Oh… say… while not wearing any personal protection equipment at all… he’d be willing to spend 13, 40 hour work weeks in a small office setting… where he’d be required to interact with an ever changing cast of hundreds of randomly selected, non-social distancing, unmasked, ungloved, untested, asymptomatic people.

To restate this blog’ intro… nobody should ever violate medical ethics to try this ill-advised stunt at work, at home or anywhere else!

I only used this literary device to better illustrate my point that, by and large, archconservative talk is cheap.

 

 

 

 

 

What’s a Grown-Up To Do?

 

Long sigh! How are we, the adults in the room, supposed to deal with this?

For the past (nearly) four years, we’ve become the exasperated, surrogate parents to a truculent, septuagenarian man-child, who [1] gleefully fritters away his precious time frolicking around his oval shaped playpen, [2] disgustingly marks his territory while scampering about the playground nation, and [3] vegges out in front of the TV while experiencing disgusting, drooling, perverted, pubescent-magnitude rapture for his doting FOX friends (who, in turn, are always on hand to stroke his… uh… well… let’s just call it his inflated ego and leave it at that).

We are painfully aware that [1] he is sickened by narcissism, [2] he relies on nepotism to shamelessly pick and choose the mindlessly loyal, sicko classmates he’ll play with and [3] they all live by their official class motto, “A mind is a wonderful thing to waste” (an adage awash with anti-science and anti-everything anti-intellectualism).

Considering them… as a hole… uh… as a whole… it should come as no huge surprise that they deem Coronavirus / COVID19 to be a Democratic Party hoax RATHER THAN the all too real, existential threat to humankind, which it is.

How can we expect a full of himself little man to ever act fully in the public interest? It appears way above his pay-grade to ever tackle any problem promptly, proactively and potently… and more to the point… to effectively contain and conquer COVID19 before it’s too late (becomes a pandemic). Perhaps it’s already too late?

Instead, what we get is the man-child… in the role of Dow Jones Donny… delivering his utterly unproductive, absolutely insensitive speeches and briefings.

We find the man-child worried sick over the ailing Stock Market. Is he even capable of feeling similarly about the people who’ve actually become sickened by this dread disease?

Obviously, he’s oblivious to these truths… which should be self-evident…

• The health of the Stock Market is inexorably linked to the health of the Workforce. Cure the latter and the former will take care of itself.

• Dead people and their mourning family and friends will not be in a “Let’s shop till we drop” mood. Neither will the rest of us restless folks, who are constantly worrying that even our weekly trips to the grocery store could kill us all.
