the virus in NE England….

All of this is only my guesswork in realising the need to self-isolate, but I bet I’m not far off the mark. Here I am in NE England and last nights Guardian website has a map of  the UK and by estimating the size of the pictorial data it looks to be seven deaths from the virus in the North East.

Lets say two weeks to show symptoms and a week to die therefore seven deaths show the scene at three weeks ago; at 1% fatality therefore 700 infected as of three weeks ago.

If contamination doubles every three days therefore 96,000 carriers are present right now Friday in this region ie north east England. Divide that by say thirty big supermarkets as a handy indicator of populations or areas (and where we still congregate) and it means 3,200 carriers in each of thirty areas across the region today.  Lets use the Morpeth, Northumberland area as an illustration, divide 96,000 carriers by 30 and we get 3,200 carriers in that area and probably most if not all shop at the main supermarket. As my g/f concedes everything I’ve feared / predicted has come true.

I’ve been using disposable gloves for a month, have feared groceries, post and deliveries for the last three weeks, all are left in the hallway for a few day before opening and post and parcels only received wearing fresh gloves that are immediately binned. I operate 3m not 2m distancing and get angry when I see needless waffle at the supermarket or wherever. Remember this virus as with all viruses has never been seen by any form of optical light microscope, only are they detectable as huge populations grown in the lab or by a scanning electron microscope. Covid-19 loves the respiratory tract and is delighted to hitch a free ride on the exhaled air from peoples lungs.

I can well see why the UK Government wants us all to be self-isolating and its importance for this simple arithmetic to indicate IT IS RIGHT NOW that we need to self-isolate.

My fears and prediction of the USA catastrophe is now apparent. A combination of trump idiocy and pay as you go is incendiary to the corona virus situation. His recent cant and BS of ‘all well by Easter’ is exactly the wrong message, this will excuse people to be less vigilant. I’ve always alluded to the similarity of Mao and trump, at this rate he’ll join the big-boy league of mass killings through incompetence posing as ability.

My fearful prediction sorry to say is that our sample area of Morpeth could well have thirty two deaths by three weeks time.  We heard on the bbc radio news a few days ago of instructions for each Parish to locate thirty burial plots and a site for a mass grave. It was unfortunate the term ‘herd immunity’ was much bandied two or three weeks ago, in fact this is what must happen but its not nice to hear.

I don’t think we need much of mathematical modelling from Imperial (no disrespect intended) to see what is happening, fag packet workings are sufficient, all we need know are transmission rates, multiplying factors such as rates of growth and time from infection to death and the exact numbers of deaths in the last 24 hrs. I’ve marked in my diary to revisit this post in three weeks ie Friday 17 April and see how close my fearful guesses have materialised.

I feel so sorry for frontline NHS Staff, badly let down with essential supplies and merely a face mask, ill-fitting pinny and gloves is tragic, to some extent the Johnson Government has repeatedly whitewashed over this glaring shortfall. I also feel so sorry for people in London and also supermarket check-out staff are in a woefully vulnerable position.

As detailed below in the Guardian today thank goodness only one country has a so-called leader so hopeless. I think also and I’ve never heard anyone say as such being out of the EU I think has allowed us to react (mostly) effectively.

And a day later an appraisal of trump performance yet again confirms his gross unsuitability to be a President of anything …. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/28/trump-coronavirus-politics-us-health-disaster

 

Hint: never speak directly to anyone, turn 90 degrees if absolutely essential you must speak, merely nod at the supermarket check-out.

Minimise / elimate all needless chatter to anyone outside the home.

Make it a 3m rule, 2m is too close to be safe.  Exercise social distancing within the family, within the home, walk out for exercise but keep apart!

Only accept post and parcels with gloves, bin the gloves and leave the items unopened / untouched for a few days.

Wear disposable gloves at all times and particularly if needing to go to a shop. Try not to hop from shop to shop, ideally one shop only. If no gloves use a food bag or kitchen towel, bin all once out of the shop. Use a disposable bag and gloves when gripping the shopping basket or trolley, safer to self scan.

Ideally shed your outside or shopping clothes once home and wash them straight away.

Remember no-one has ever seen a virus through an optical microscope, they are so small, an analogy could be when fine ground chilli powder is everywhere and we know from experience how it can ‘get everywhere’ when cooking.

Avoid fools ! And regard everyone as being a carrier therefore avoid.

The unfortunate but accurate term ‘herd immunity’ means that possibly everyone will become infected.

‘cors …

… cleaner skies will mean more immediate climate heating, oh dear. And my previous post and link for Sam Carana ie Arctic news blogspot focus on the huge release of methane from what looks to be an earthquake in the Arctic. Yuck.

Driving thro my nearby town tonight (NE UK) was a trifle upsetting considering how we still mingle for shopping and for instance many small businesses such as car repair seem to still have human interactions; I cannot help but feel pub and restaurant closure ie trifling but valuable human interactions will create a whole bundle of frustrations and eventual anger. I’m okay, I pretty well live the exact social distancing lifestyle that the Government would so wish us all to pursue, but I’m not sure the average person would wish to live as I do. In fact I know they would not and could not.

Boris has promised vast amounts of citizen wage aid, but be warned he will want his price ie stringent shutdowns as and when he thinks fit.

My heart bleeds for front-line Doctors and nurses  …  despite the pure lies and blindness  of Government Press Briefings … we hear several times over each day from NHS frontline workers that the correct PPE is not present and is pathetically unsuitable, short of the decent minimum.

And where is   TEST-TEST-TEST  which we were implored to pursue? Its a bit like UK ‘Foot and Mouth’ in that all the hard lessons learnt from the experience of 1969 were ignored thirty years later.

A term seemingly forgotten is bio-security, quite handy actually, its what we all should aim for. Something else we should aim for is NOT to excessively stockpile, methinks there will be much waste, lots ending up in the bin, after all … its difficult to get excited at the prospect of yet more pasta based meals. Luckily I’ve started to get into Indian and Pakistani cooking, I’ve a couple of excellent charity shop books here and once you are ‘tooled up’ ie have the necessary herbs and spices you are able to create so much beautiful taste and often without using meat of any form. Heres so far my rock-bottom must have …..

mustard seed and fennel seed.

olive oil.

cumin seed with hot fried sweet potato ‘twiglet sized’ pieces.

fresh coriander.

try supermarket jars of Indian sauce (try Saag Masala) … you can use red onion, leek and broccoli for an instant meal. Garam masala is part of the toolkit as well as additional  coconut milk.  I also make my own chapati and Peshwari nan … all v quick and simple.

Besan flour too can make a simple bhaji or vegan burger which is wonderful with say an onion chutney.

I also use Ajiwan seed in my trad brit suet crust or for my nan bread mix.

I also enjoy a sea food pilaf (ie white wine, smoked haddock, mussels, chicken, rice, chicken stock).

a beef skirt casserole with chopped parsnip and carrot for flavour, don’t forget a couple of cloves, also Kalo beef stock ie low salt.

as a treat, crushed chilled raspberry with carnation, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg.

try to add fresh garlic and ginger wherever possible, fresh diced fig also fine chopped red onion, leek, spring onion; fresh ground black pepper and sea salt. This is all as can be termed ‘Natures Medicine Chest’.

In praise of Jeremy Hunt…

… well done Jeremy Hunt to call for a greater reduction in the assembly and gathering of individuals and in my opinion sports gatherings should be closed altogether, no matter what size; in your minds eye imagine a group of blokes, theres always somebody coughing or as we see here in the north east … spitting!  For the UK I’d say this is not a ‘once in a generation event’ as much bandied by the PM in his recent speeches but similar to a WW2 blitz eighty years ago or the Spanish Flu of a hundred.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51865915

I see this as a taster or try-out of the climate change disruption that will undoubtedly take hold in a few years. However it heartens me that much personal / recreational airflights can be eradicated and the economic model we have at present ie year on year annual growth and continuous market growth has limitations and should certainly be open to scrutiny. As I blogged previously I fear the virus will certainly demonstrate the unfairness and inefficiency of the American health system never mind the lying hapless nature of trump.

Concurrently there is also an official thread or counter to the Jeremy Hunt line in that meetings, groups etc should still be permitted, in an effort to help the populace develop immunity; but surely its not quite like that in that this is a virus, read and listen to how this spikey critter latches on to and enters host body cells. My own particular vigilance would be to avoid or minimise travel within the country, ie MPs sit in London and then spend the weekends at their constituency,  the virus we could say is riding piggyback on the railway system!

Heres a good link to bbc r4 radio programme  ‘Inside Science’ with Adam Rutherford, but unfortunately the bbc want us to jump thro hoops and ‘register’, wow this annoys.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000g3gf

I am so lucky, I’m so glad I do not live in a large town or city, that I have personal transport and can obtain my food shopping quite easily and quite close by (all fresh and home-prepared) and do not have to use public transport nor work within a group of other people nor visit anywhere with other people present, I’ve no long term health problems and am happy enough with my own company. I’m lucky indeed.

 

Chemtrails from pictures…

… choose a theme ie Stonehenge, google for pics; result, chemtrails are easy to find.

I’m trying to use only a link ‘cos y’know how uppity and precious ppl can be with copyright.

Below, free stock photo, note chemtrail at left and signs of an ‘aluminized sky’ (my term.

Stonehenge

 

Below is included as it is so very illustrative of Stonehenge itself ….

See the source image

 

I went thro a Stonehenge phase nearly twenty years ago, alignments, Aubrey Holes etc.  I was a keen reader then and the County Reference Library knew me as an active  borrower of books. There is also ‘something’ else, a real and true physical feature of Stonehenge that can be seen elsewhere in the UK but I don’t want to talk about that as it is controversial ie not obvious (no-one else has observed it, or more accurately bothered to look with an open mind) and it is merely of my own observation and realisation. What I can say and to my mind is that Stonehenge plainly is a vast un-movable calender or clock, meant specifically for this as it copes with the leap year problem, it sets order into the movement of the Sun and the Moon and is located where its geometry is quite beautiful, ie the Suns rise and setting in one day. Ancient man must indeed have been fascinated with it all. Another point in how we apply words, the Bluestones were not ‘brought’ from Wales, in my opinion they were sent, that’s of course if they were not erratics. To send stones from a specific quarry is the act of a big and powerful man, or dynasty now quite name-less. Note Prehistoric folk were really ‘into their stone’, witness the hard to access specific location for Langdale stone axes.  Another point I’ve never read of is where are all the ‘stone tools’ or rubbing surfaces all these axes would have created in their manufacture? I cannot believe this point has not been raised, but then again often the archaeologist type bods are not longterm makers of tools day in and day out and I remember years ago on tv students re-enacted a project to smelt or melt bronze which only resulted in a most cringeworthy spectacle, Bath Bristol or somewhere.

Chemtrail testimony.

I’ve pasted this before but at four hundred plus posts this needs pasting again re that chemtrails are real. I detest terms such as ‘conspiracy theory’ in this house and anyone that knows me, it is ‘loose’ and sloppy thinking. What I do hold is that something is happening and we need to observe and record.

 

below in a few hours I’ll post the last weeks chemtrail as they appeared here in NE England.

Americas downfall will be its health system.

Has anyone thought about the fact that the American ‘having to pay’ health system, trumps mash-up of anything scientific or expert and the dreaded ICE persual of anyone of colour ie Mexican or Moslem will mean vast millions of poor and disadvantaged will be rendered as unclean, as lepers overnight?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak

In fact anyone below a ‘very good income’ will be I would imagine at a greater risk of not being intercepted, of being to use that horrible term a ‘super-spreader’. Or perhaps more accurately it means the poor will not be tested or effectively processed at the earlier stages of cov19; which of course is exactly the time when intervention is most useful. Therefore we can say that Americas so-called ‘health system’ is an utter shambles, is in fact the ‘worst case’ situation. This also highlights how trumps assault onto the poorer areas of society, the undocumented etc are feared to come forward. One could say that for some trump takes us back to the Stone Age; very fitting as trump denies science and expertise.

Thank goodness here in the UK we have the NHS. Old fashioned washing of hands is realised to be so important, something I always do readily anyway perhaps to a bit of a mild obsession few others seemed so inclined until now.

From what I can see the Chinese look to have handled this outbreak very well; they have the clout to lock down as required, yet the initial stages and the poor doctor that died are shameful. However the strength of the CCP has been to their advantage.

Therefore as much the USA with mobster and perennial liar / fantasist trump at the helm wishes to be seen as slick, quick and on the ball once we are through this coronavirus problem the USA I fear will have seemed so backward no matter how much trump tries to whitewash, as Stone Age compared to China.

Funny huh …  how in so few short years trump has taken America back to a third rate nation.
