Have you noticed?

In the UK the conversation presented on bbc r4 news can verge to the puerile and simplistic, only Marc Mardell say Sunday at 1pm and the consistently worthwhile ‘The World Tonight’ keep me interested. Filler pieces on the bbc r4 5pm slot can often be over extended and need drastic editing, in fact often wasting time when I’m sure theres lots more we can hear about of this world. It must be mighty frustrating for daily commuters to be served such slow paced puerile fare.

I actually applaud the new slogan ‘Be Alert’ its my opinion we need to get a lot of the workforce back into action. Sports events I can do without, likewise I never eat out in restaurants so why are they needlessly pushed as being so essential! Therefore to ‘Be Alert’ is vital, to stop any under 2m proximity, prolonged encounters and needless conversation. It was interesting to hear Prof Marc Woodhouse at lunchtime being of the opinion cv-19 transfer is low when out of doors. I think the UK is needlessly restrictive at this point ie first week May. So much of the non healthworker population should be allowed nearer a normal productive life. The Governments restrictions of ALL UK citizens is over simplistic and hence over damaging to most everyone and everything.

Too much emphasis has been placed on nice words which are at disjoint from reality and whats happening ‘on the ground’ … witness PPE and testing … both are victim to blether and whitewash. At 5pm listening to Rishi Sunak makes me think we need more ‘bite’, less nice feeling ramble, items of PPE and testing has proven to be not what we are told it is ie British manufacturers still exporting PPE and the disjoint twixt testing hype and reality is a scandal. 

We need a four or five month opening up of restrictions, say June thro October, what no-one is mentioning is that we’ve seen nothing yet until when we hit the ”season of coughs and sneezes’. I think we will have to suffer a weekly death toll for the sake of avoiding financial disaster, both individually and as a nation.

What is vital and again not being brought out into the open is the importance of cordoning all encounters and activities of medical and care workers. These folk are ‘hot’ so to speak and cannot be allowed to beak bio-security in the general community. This needs to be made plain.

The terms and expressions around this cv-19 problem seem hindered, not developed. Only today did we hear the use of ‘proximity and duration’ come into play and also my own term ‘breath projection’ as yet I’ve never heard anyone else use but surely an essential term especially when talking about facemasks and their efficacy.  The virus is super tiny but I guess needs droplets of breath to hitch a ride, hence ‘Be Alert’ is admirable.

trump has set a deadline (end of May) to disband his corona virus task force, in other words jettison Fauchi and I bet install wonderboy and I’ve read slum landlord Jared.

trump a day or two ago is mimicking exactly the manner, look and responses from when he was questioned and asked to read a document three years ago; he blustered, he mimicked un-concern …. reality was he couldn’t read. If this was any other person I would feel sympathy but not some intentional and blustering non-event d j trump. In other words he has given up, he is now a hollow man. My opinion is now that he wants merely to walk away, his tv skills may have fooled for a while but now he himself knows he is way out of his depth and will want to return to the comfort of his gilded apartment in Manhattan. Yes certainly trump is clever but not a cleverness I hold in esteem.

 

 

Forecasting what next …

With the virus shutdown there very seldom is any chemtrail to be seen (maybe say only something every three days)  and so now we have the problem such clear blue skies will aid heat absorption by the oceans. Therefore its my guess governments will put forward the idea quite openly that we need to spray our skies to hinder climate change and slow down the seas warming and hinder the crucial but inevitable and dreaded methane release.  For instance google for methane hydrate, an ice-free Arctic, thawing permafrost, East Siberian Ice Shelf.

I had a bad dream the other day,  quite horrible in fact, a total inept termed donald j trump (I deny him upper case) …. had become President of the United States !  One can only state that this is indeed beyond the realm of sanity … preposterous!

Here in the UK its my opinion the lockdown leaves a lot to desired, there is seemingly total refusal to deal specifically with those in health care and their immediate family, how in fact they are a ‘special case’ and need much greater rigour in how they circulate after they leave work. Has anyone mentioned this so far – looks to be not. They will; they will have to as too many ‘innocent people’ are being needlessly corralled. The sight of those silly pale blue plastic pinnies drives me nuts, the slightest breeze and they are flying around all over, as good as useless I assume.

Note the irony if that’s the word that the virus shutdown is in fact facilitating the reduction of carbon footprint, of unnecessary airflights etc – just what the planetary doctor ordered!  Huge sheds with respirators, much limited personal mobility, all as would be required when the methane time bomb hits.

Lets use our brains …

Propaganda to the masses and bad thinking at the top are rife, epidemic. Some examples…

  • When trump tweets realise its not just his finger on the keyboard but in fact that little keyboard is a giga-powered propaganda machine with open input from any of his crooked and twisted lackeys and I include Ivanka and particularly Jared in this; the little keyboard of his phone (or more likely an office computer logged into trumps twitter feed) the most powerful meat grinder (unfortunately) in the world. Meat grinder in that trump and cohorts will quite happily sacrifice the poor and less fortunate to get past this lockdown, to mangle the truth at every convenience to trump and his constant revision of what he said the day before. At every turn, so many times trump likes to sacrifice the poor and helpless, think travel bans think border wall, all needless.
  • trump is the wrong man at the wrong time in the wrong position at least to all God fearing sane and decent citizens, yet to Putin trump is the right man in the right place at the right time, an unprecedented opportunity for exploitation. Of course trump is being massively exploited, I’m sure in my mind there is huge amounts of Russian money chanelled through trump activities, trump depends and needs this to survive as no American Bank will suffer him and remember the disgusting lovefest of trump and Putin at Helsinki; two hours behind closed doors, no American witnesses and no notes, trump emerging visibly shaken. This is sickening, trump indeed is skewered on Putins arm as some hapless dumb ventriloquists doll. Note trumps endless insistence that Russia did not meddle in the elections no matter the clamouring of US citizens at all levels, that Russia is his friend, that Russians have been invited and freely entered the Oval Office.
  • Everything trump issues as an insult or failing is in fact most applicable to himself;  everything from trump is a reversal of the truth and time-won practical experience, of established institutions, of knowledge and scientific data ie climate change, the environment, sleazy tax handouts to cronies, international relations, the respect to other religions and ways of life etc etc. He courts dictators. When he points the accusatory finger “Fake news” he in fact is the only fake in the room; shouldn’t therefore everyone point back silently, good move I think and we are quite entitled to do so however the irony would be that trump would assume the accusatory finger to be in fact a fascist salute and therefore an adulation!! As usual, with trump we are in a room full of mirrors. Personally I would also encourage public booing to somehow break the bubble of the would-be fascist Emperor and his hangers on after all he is so incredibly thin-skinned.
  • trumps obsession and over-repeated slogan “Drain the swamp” is now utterly most applicable to himself, no great swamp existed pre-trump but now boy-o-boy trump has created his very own sickening swamp by any standards. Note handler Mnuchin always standing by rooting for Big Money, likewise Pence to ensure a fundamentalist, regressive and backward doctrine are included, to be promoted at all times.
  • Truth is cooked up each day according to the whim or shallow fancy of trump, as cooked up as him unfathomable tax returns or unknown educational attainment, both we assume not worth the paper they are written on if only anyone could ever find them.
  • Mining the moon … one couldn’t make this up! This really is an exercise of sustainable living in hostile conditions, which has been foreseeable for the last couple of years, such as the dreaded impending methane release and subsequent chaos of interconnected climate feedback loops running out of control from the efficiency / efficacy of surging methane levels. Its not CO2 that will kill us but the much more damaging (say x120 fold) and much faster acting methane release in its three forms ie microbial from thawing permafrost, methane deposits trapped within the strata capped and held in place by permafrost and probably worst of all thawing subsea hydrates for instance the East Siberian Ice Shelf. These are huge areas, far bigger any one of them than Europe.
  • My opinion is that there is a limit to the gullibility of trumps so-called voter base, like most things of his its smaller than he says; soon trump fans will tire of the trump spiel and media hogging, even the most unthinking zombie-like adorer of the trump stance must surely quite soon see the light, the obscuring fakery of trump.
  • Has anyone realised the huge places recently constructed to die and equipped with respirators, a life of lockdowns, the end of personal freedom as of cv-19 are exactly what we will need when climate change kicks in hard? Which it will, the impending catastrophic increase of methane being the real ‘biggie’.
  • From my UK standpoint and I think near universal is insufficient regard taken with care and health workers, these special people need special treatment in safer distancing from family members and public, to be cordoned off in effect. The PPE scandal will not go away, neither the scandal of care home deaths being kept out of the cov-19 death toll. The early hours health and care worker shopping hour needs to be redefined as a means of increasing bio-security, so far no-one is taking this angle seriously enough. This would allow economies to loosen up and get a few more contributors working again. Issuing all care workers with a badge is exactly what one would have decided is the first step in identifying such workers and hey presto was announced a fortnight ago. Funny how this can be redefined as a means to separate out care and health workers from the general population, which I think would be utterly stupid not to do so, yet no-one specifically mentions this. this in some ways silly lockdown needs to be engineered more intelligently.
  • In essence we need to be more aware to separate the health and care workers from the rest of the general population, the latest tragic news of two sisters, both care workers to die reinforces the need to do this.
  • Quite seriously, why has no-one drawn attention to the lunacy of having a beard at this time, I would imagine a virus catcher par-excellence!

 

Postscript, nice to hear my words echoed and the exact words indeed as utilised by Polly Toynbee a few hours after I wrote them, great minds think alike!  Likewise two days later interesting to hear Nick on bbc r4 this morning  echoeing my particular sentiment that nice sounding words are useless when in fact in reality things don’t happen or the PPE isn’t delivered and the cv-19 testing just is not happening as they portray. I would term this a disjoint of delivery. The latest disaster is a recall for botched cv-19 testing, also the NHS and Government seeming to be ignoring the offers of PPE manufacturing and lab testing capacity in the UK. One couldn’t make this up!

Heres Amy Goodman with Noam Chomski …

 

As Noam Chomsky tells us trump is indeed v v clever.

Scandals, incompetence, lack of vision.

It baffles me how short sighted the bods at the top really are, I mean the UK Government. BBC r4 radio news this morning again carries mention that highly qualified ultra-competent laboratories in Uni, research, contract testing etc are all available to ramp up cv-19 testing yet multiple contacts and phone calls from Professors and Doctors in their own field produce nothing in return from the NHS or the UK Government;  we are so woefully challenged as how this virus is being handled. I think when we view retrospectively the double scandal not using the myriad of labs available outside of the NHS (which I think possibly can often be in advance of the NHS) and the also incredulous scandal of NOT examining and collating deaths in care homes or at home to achieve more accurate data of lives claimed by the virus. Aiming to deliver a competent speech as say from the Head Boy is NOT the same as the actual hard reality of PPE in the hands of those that need it. Maybe we need a Lord Beaverbrook? The only good thing you can say is that our only resort, social distancing was pushed forward as utterly essential. But has anyone ever yet seen trump or the creepily quiet and distanced Fauci wearing simple handgloves? … scandalous!

This terrible time highlights the lag from daily pronouncement to actual on the ground delivery, such as PPE which contrary to podium pronouncements is not to hand for those at the sharp end. And I wonder if that recent Russian and Chinese PPE was delivered to those that needed it or in fact hoarded by Jared?

All care workers and those in contact with cv-19 patients need to be tested every couple of days, these are ‘hot-beds’ of infection no matter how hard the staff follow as many precautions as possible, that’s of course if they have anything near the PPE ther really need, I mean full face gear, forced ventilation head protection (ever heard anyone mention this?). Wow, as I type this we hear someone from the USA (Prof Paul Rohner sorry I missed the name bbc r4 08:46) saying exactly this idea ie to harness the Universities, to intensively test the hot beds of infection. My thoughts exactly. I also think all in healthcare, care homes etc need their own special distancing, their own family members, these people need to be treat and manouvered as the potential super-spreaders these really are … to NOT test say daily is madness.

News from across the pond and as usual presented uncritically and even as ‘normal’ of the continuing, worsening trump disaster as is typical bbc r4 news stance. At 10pm ‘The world Tonight’ at least has some ‘teeth’ and offers a clearer view, a valuable radio programme. In the old Soviet era photographs people were airbrushed out of the picture to alter history, trump does it by merely denying his previous words and actions. I had thought trump was basically a puppet but these last few days I’m more inclined to think he actually does come up with all this crap mostly from himself. At least his unpredictability is predictable, forever casting himself with hindsight as the ‘stable genius’ and reworking his message at whatever shallow whim drives him that day. We can assume now that those around him really are the dregs, Mnuchin, Miller, Kushner etc and with the White House Eunuch Pence in attendance. Even with Anthony Fauci he really does seems to have trawled for and ineffectual yes-man. These really are sick white folk. Winess jareds outburst a few days ago when questioned as to the Governments own massive stocks of PPE when America struggles …. “They are for us” …. wow yet again a DC comic adventure.

For trump to announce withdrawl of funding to the World Health Organisation is cruel indeed, hell-bent (an apt term if ever) at Trumpian disruption and bile. Witness Yemen, tragic. Its again the trump style, max disruption, max cruelty; its got trump written all over it. To be so stingy and pretend ‘he has a view on anything’ (quite laughable were it not so cruel) is all reality show smoke and mirrors, which is all trump knows apart from conman crow-barring of perceived enemies and debtors; he came from the Roy Cohn School of Charm and Grace.  Thinking about it, this is when Sean Hannity and Fox could do the nation a service and turn this monstrous Clown to a more sensible approach, come on Sean n Co …. help the Free World!

trump incompetence …

We normally put up with donald j trump, the ultra part-timer and the utter incompetent ‘Clown in the White House’, trump is the fly in the ointment; we allow him to hiss, accuse and blether his way through soundbites and for yet another day to project outwards his tissue thin façade of so-called ‘competence’. But now with cv-19 its time to man-up so to speak and realise trump is now responsible for many innocent lives being lost which most certainly upsettingly compounds his already relentless attempts to wreck, to induce fear and anxiety.

Realise, its not what trump says that matters, its what he does (or wrecks). trump knows most near all of his face to face media encounters are mere ‘blether-fests’.

This article helps assemble and gain an overall view of the disaster zone called donald j trump …

the virus mess-up …

The UK Governments insistence on checking for antibodies is the wrong direction, it is actual viral infection (being an active carrier) that surely is what we need particularly for the NHS. Knowing carriers cuts down forward thrust, antibody presence is the slow baggage cart that follows, not the intrusive nature of the virus particles themselves at the spearhead so to speak. Right now press-speak / soundbites are rife with crazy often silly analogies, now we are getting ‘green shoots’,  theres at least one new one each day.  bbc r4 reveals this morning the UK Government is going for the wrong virus test, that hardly in reality any NHS staff have been tested for the the virus itself. And now we hear four frontline Doctors are dead.

I see after say a three week absence we are again hearing of ‘herd immunity’ which in crude low tech societies would be the eventual outcome, I thought we were capable of better than this.

The waffle and BS from no.10 is becomg a bit stale and ineffectual, I feel the best or capable advisors seem absent, even one top-flight UK university can perform more tests (was that a day or a week) that all the Government backed UK-wide tests performed so far. Apparently as of yesterday no-one has contacted all the small independent labs or University labs at taking up the workload.

Methinks Imperial College seems the Government principal contributor, front-line NHS staff Docs etc are basically ignored, the PPE is disastrous, contraryto the Government spin, woefully insufficient, unsuitable old or dirty, very little full face or of sufficient protection.  When Doctors ten days ago were using terms such as ‘lambs to the slaughter’ then we really are in a fix, Docs are not prone to over-exaggeration; after all, educationally (and their experience) is the best Britain has. China will have much that we need, after all they will have ramped up production massively.

So many things are quite not what they seem, a mask will not really save you from infection unless its full face and forced air ventilation. Virus are notoriously small, sub-microscopic unless you go to the electron microscope; their smallness hence means they are scattered as confetti everywhere. In my opinion conventional masks merely hinder outward breath and therefore particle projection. It was stated as ‘news’ this morning that coughs and sneezes have been found by a lab in the USA to project eight and nine feet respectively. Good God, how simplistic have we become?

I now have a disinfectant floor tray at my house entrance so I can help clean my footwear, I suspect supermarket floors are a source of coronavirus-19 infection and spread. I also suspect pet dogs, so hands off! Our carpets could become a reservoir. Likewise mobile phones will be reservoirs of infection.

Some people just don’t seem to ‘get it’ how social distancing is vital to knock the spread. I still see a neighbour every day have his buddies round for motorbike buddy talk; I’ve seen this elsewhere, biker guys seem so sad and lonely … HAVE to talk.

I feel so sorry for third world countries, for the poor, the displaced. At least we in the west are more able to create space and distance to thwart the spread.

Its a Thursday and we are informed its another Thursday evening front-step applause for the NHS and other vital workers, supermarket staff etc. I’m just wondering, increasingly sceptical of this move, after all realise the smallness of the virus itself, its probable it will stay in the air for days; therefore everyone out on their step collectively sharing their breath and exultation is a sure guarantee to destroy any effort at social distancing. Madness! 

Virus are measured in millionths of an inch, to open the engineers micrometer at one thousandth of an inch would mean we could fit in one hundred virus particles side by side … if they are as big as ten millionths of an inch. Difficult to find coronavirus-19 particle size online. Search term ‘morphology’ gets the results we need.

The second link below allows us a glimpse at the sophistication and knowledge employed by the scientists themselves. It always worthwhile to realise what others do for a living, their level of education and abilities .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronavirus

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4369385/

We read from the above wiki, using the handy search term ‘morphology’  the virus particles are 120nm which of course is metric as is all lab and scientific work. Pasting from google search we find I quote …. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, 0.000000001 or 10-9 meters. The word nano comes from the Greek word for “dwarf.” unquote.

Heres an example of group stupithink… this is unwieldy, note how the 0’s are not kept in threes for ease of reading, nowhere in engineering do we use tiny dimensions as ‘parts of a metre’ in small component manufacture it is ALL in mm (millimetre) or hundredth part thereof. Therefore knock off three noughts to get part of a mm ie in mm = 1×10-6 ie 0.000001mm, hint the ‘6th bit’ being the position of the final number one.

As an engineer I naturally think in terms of ‘a thousandth of an inch’ I can visualise it, know where it matters, where to incorporate it and when to ignore and when to take account of it.

Now, I know 0.025 mm is roughly equiv to one thousandth of an inch ie 0.001in.

Therefore as we visualise a thousandth of a thousandth of an inch as in my initial micrometer example firstly above we add three more ‘0’ to the mix, ie 0.025mm     becomes  0.000 025mm (note I bunch up zeroes in groups of three for ease of reading).

Therefore 0.000,025mm = a millionth of an inch ie 0.000,0001in

As 0.000,001mm is 1nm (ie 10×10-6) the above value is 25nm.

Voila! We can now visualise in real terms what we are talking about.

Therefore the coronavirus-19 particles are five millionths of an inch. We can place not a thousand side by side in our micrometer opening of 0.001in as if they were a millionth of an inch but ‘merely’ but a fifth of this ie two hundred virus particles side by side.

This demonstrates the virus will behave more like a gas than a particle, you have only to see how hedgerow seed from common orchis floats dips and rises on the still air, never seeming to want to drop to earth and orchid seed is (to borrow a Boris word) hugely bigger.

 

Postscript: We are coming to one thousand deaths per day this weekend. Hold up your hands, form an ‘0’ with RH thumb and forefinger, this gives us eight little piggies to count with, each space representing three days ie a total span of 21 days. Count out from the left one thousand, two, four, eight, sixteen, thirty two, sixty four, one hundred and twenty eight thousand deaths in one day in three weeks time.  Well seeing social distancing is so vital, of the utmost importance. No wonder scientists talk of it ‘running through the herd’ this admits they have nothing else.

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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronavirus_disease_2019

https://www.theguardian.com/world/coronavirus-outbreak

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.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/mar/27/trump-narcissism-american-blood-coronavirus

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.

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.
