“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” – Harriet Beecher Stowe

Another doctors opinion about Covid-19
Ignore the Numbers
It will probably slow down at least somewhat in the northern hemisphere as summer approaches, yet continue in the southern hemisphere to return here full force with the change in seasons. The problem with this thing is the super long incubation period without significant symptoms. It is also airborne, and highly contagious, and virulent for weeks in cooler temps on surfaces, so it spreads rapidly, and silently. This means it is slow to show itself, yet grows exponentially, and will suddenly appears everywhere without warning, and overwhelm. It is not super deadly if hospitalization is available, yet hospitals would be quickly be over crowded, and the death rate quadruples, or worse.
If medical supplies and medicines we need to deal with this are no longer arriving from China, and in short supply, we should hope and pray it will be attenuated in the summer. The economic ramifications, and a financial crisis could also cause the loss of jobs and income, and ability to feed ourselves, even if the virus dies out in the summer. It won’t. And if Trump loses, half the people will not be happy, and there could be low level conflict as they will come for the guns.
It is only prudent to ignore the complacent, and those in denial, and prepare for tumultuous times. Should it abate in the summer, then that will give us more time. The CDC is not testing as they are in Korea, therefore there are no numbers of infected to report, and no panic, little interdiction, yet they issue a warning to pretend they got this. Without numbers the country does less to prepare. Their incompetence is astounding, as it is their job to prepare for pandemics. Incompetence or conspiracy.? Regardless of the lack of competency of the CDC, the Deep State apparatus can control them and everybody else. Their mission is to dominate at all costs. The hidden agenda is not so hidden anymore. They’ll use this to get rid of Trump, and would destroy this country one way or another, so they can consolidate to rule over the ruins rather than lose power. This is a crisis they must use, or lose to a rising tide of nationalism.
It is not Trump they fear. It is us.

( A recent statement made by Dr. Messonnier of the CDC.)
“We expect we will see community spread in this country,” meaning the virus circulating within local communities, said Dr. Messonnier. She added that the question isn’t if the virus will expand in the U.S., but when.

CNBC also quotes Dr. Messonnier
“We are asking the American public to work with us to prepare for the expectation that this could be bad.”
