    From bird perspective of space blogger ...( that’s me in this case)
    and another “basket”

    ..and many people who had been through ET encounters of strangely physical kind, taken to ships etc. could confirm that we have been in most cases “UV disinfected on entry” - as a routine protocol - because even the most technically advanced civilisations fear biological contamination if not from bacteria then viruses.
    This planet has a specific status and potential as cradle of Life but is thoroughly contaminated by viruses,
    even if most of them live as your symbionts and are benign to you
    their destructive potential is unpredictable.

    I’ve had my say on the interstellar transmission of viruses somewhere, probably another forum among group of contactee people long ago
    and the way they were designed by renegade group of “scientists”, biohackers as AI and biological weapon.

    Now if you look at our situation down here and what I’m saying is that every human body down to newborns contains samples of thousands of viral strains( various exotic sorts included and specific kinds that mutated in your body so they’re unique to you) and perhaps couple thousands bacterial colonies.
    It was estimated not so long ago that human gut alone contains up to 5 kilos of bacterial colonies - I presume it’s about people who don’t care about themselves a lot anyway - but on the other scale ends people feed themselves excess of “recommended probiotics” in order to combat the “evil ones” and so forth this becoming part of still larger bacterial soup and war.

    Now again no matter how much C vitamin and other supplements do we eat daily optimising our response to any microbial attack:

    since perhaps 80-90% of any viral disease symptoms such as fever, formation of excessive phlegm in nose and lungs and whole reaction chain down to heart attack are caused not by the virus itself but the way our body responds to it as “alien agent”, trying to expel it, boil and fry it by fever, sneeze it out etc.

    Our immunity system is intended not so much to “kill the virus” as to get rid of it fast as possible that’s how it’s spreading.

    In either case, my bottom line was the current medical system is still in the dark when it comes to “virus invasion”. There is no “all comprehensive test” for viruses so far,
    there’s literarily trillions of them all over the planet and thousands of viral strains floating in every living being out of which if even 0.05% turn aggressive themselves they can cause global biological war for viral dominion

    I believe that we also need a perfect steriliser capsule for living creatures down here including dogs and cats where it takes no longer than 5 minutes to dissolve and deactivate all of the unknown pathogens at once.

    I know it sounds like a costly project at this point but it may become life saving technology of near and distant future,
    imagine the potential risk of human space travel and cross contamination.


    See if they’re working on something like that


    🙏

    Here’s an example of how hard this virus can be to predict.

    In a note dated Feb. 25th about the coronavirus the Norwegian Institute of Public Health wrote:

    Quote «Some few imported and unreported cases could be enough to start an epidemic in Norway but the number of new cases is expected to stay below 100 the first six weeks.»
    Today's the end of the first week and the numbers are 33 confirmed cases.

    PS! Of course they didn’t take into account that one of the biggest hospitals in the country would be a source of spread, like Oslo University Hospital, Ullevål (ophthalmology department), where about one third (or 130 people) of all health workers are now quarantined in their homes for 14 days.

    PPS! Oslo: Holmenkollen Skifestival will be held as planned this coming weekend (this decision could be changed and hopefully it will). Last year the festival gathered 36 000 people.

    This Event is so sad. Not one soul on this planet will not be effected by it one way or another.

    I just have to say one thing.
    What is the best way to reduce a populace on the Planet without them rising against you, because they are more scared of each other than they are of you?

    and then a question.
    Where are the Elite right now?

    The virus has arrived in my small town.
    If any weird behaviour among the residents emerges I will let you know.

    There are cases in other parts of the UK, but what strikes me as odd is that there does not seem to be any significant number in our busiest city.
    Thanks for this

    We had a nearby town with 1 'case' and the local clinic was closed as a precautionary measure.

    What I'm finding a little puzzling is that London hasn't really thrown up any (?) or many cases at all from what has been reported. That's a metropolitan area with something like 8 million+ people served by at least 5 national airports (including its own City Airport) with 100s of thousands of passengers being accommodated each day with just about the most diverse racial and ethnic mix of peoples anywhere on the planet.

    It's baffling to say the least. Perhaps there'll be an explosion in numbers at some point, but.....

    Ireland has reported a second case, as of Tuesday 03/03. Unrelated to the first case, reported on 29th February. Both cases, however, traveled from Northern Italy.

    The estimated R0 (infection rate) is 2.2. It doesn't make sense that the first reported case didn't lead to more infections. The first case is a teenage male. He would have come in contact with many people, including classmates, family members and friends. For not one single cross-infection to occur doesn't add up. Please tell me if I'm wrong in my thinking.

    That leads to me to thinking that either the tests aren't being carried out correctly (or at all) or that there is a cover up on the actual figures.

    A cover up would make sense; as to not spread fear amongst the tourists of the world that have planned on coming to Ireland for the upcoming St. Patrick's day festival. Thousands and thousands of tourists pour into Ireland during this time, and is a major money maker for the country.

    Also, the Google offices in Dublin, with a work force of 800+ staff told their staff to work from home for a second day, as someone within their staff reported flu-like symptoms.

    I really hope I'm wrong, but it just doesn't add up.

    This simple explainer was posted by Chris Martenson (Peak Prosperity) in his 2 March video update (>300k views in 24 hours). It's all about what exponential growth means. And how we're always taken by surprise when it happens, because we all tend to think and make personal predictions linearly.

    Each nation, including China, has gone through this sequence. Norway will, too! Wherever you are, reading this, consider where your country is at right now. They may be somewhere else next week.
    1. Case.
    2. Case, case, case.
    3. Cluster.
    4. Cluster, cluster, cluster.
    5. Uncontained explosion of cases all over the country.

    Chinese version of virus genotyping artifacts are different than Iranian version. Governments (Iranian and other western countries) still using "coronavirus outbreak" to make connection.
    And maybe the Italian version, too. Both are spreading much too easily, and the CFR (case fatality rate) looks like it might be higher.
    Okay, we need to be very cautious with this new report, and see what ensues regarding what it really means. But at first sight, it seems it may be important.
    Coronavirus: there are 2 types, Chinese researchers find
    4 March, 2020

    The coronavirus has evolved into two major types, with differing transmission rates and geographical distribution, according to a study published in the National Science Review on Tuesday.

    A group of Chinese scientists analysed 103 coronavirus genomes and identified mutations in 149 sites across the strains.

    They found that one type, which they called the L type, was more prevalent than the other, the S type, meaning it was more infectious. They also found that the L type had evolved from the S type, and that the L type was far more widespread before January 7 and in Wuhan, ground zero of the outbreak.

    Human actions soon after the outbreak was discovered in December may have changed the abundance of each type, the report said, citing the Chinese central and local governments’ drastic containment measures including lockdowns of cities, which it said may have curbed the spread of the L type.

    The researchers said follow-up studies were needed to form a better understanding of the virus’ evolution and spread.

    Yes, Bill it looks like ‘the steep climb upwards’ is starting sometime soon here.

    + 15 cases since this morning makes 48 (+ 8 more this evening = 56).


    Regarding mutation in his update 29 (March 3.) Dr. Seheult says if you were to look at the virus in Wuhan versus the virus in Washington they are not identical to each other, they have mutated in some way. He then shows an interesting map showing the paths of the virus(es?) from nextstrain.org – a site that does live time tracking of pathogen evolution.

    He shows to a quote on Twitter (6:53) about the cases in Washington that «indicated the newer case may have descended from the earlier one».



    About descendants he says:

    Quote When the virus infects your cell it takes over the cell’s machinery to create more viruses. But the genes that the virus brings in are kind of sloppy. Becuase of that sloppiness there’s a lot of mutations that are made and some of those mutations may actually end up changing amino acids. Some of those mutations won’t translate into different sets of amino acids but you can still see those mutations. And as you track those mutations in time you can see which virus strain descendant from another.

    Update: 106 confirmed cases on March 6.

    There are cases in states all around me and as yet, no one at work has talked about any changes in the way the spa operates. I am able to imagine that we could be an entry point because we have hundreds of clients per week, many on vacation.

    Quote ‘We’re losing valuable time,’ former FDA chief says of US coronavirus outbreak
    PUBLISHED WED, MAR 4 20209:07 AM EST
    William Feuer
    The U.S. is running out of time to contain the budding COVID-19 outbreaks on the West Coast, former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Wednesday.

    While there are still just over 100 confirmed cases in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Gottlieb said the undetected number is likely in the thousands.

    “It’s probably the case that we will have an epidemic here in the U.S., but we can dramatically affect the contours of that,” he said on “Squawk Box.” He called for local officials to cancel large gatherings and close schools. “We’re losing valuable time. We need to start thinking about these measures in the regions where there is spread right now.”

    There are at least “two different chains of spread” in the U.S., added Gottlieb, a CNBC contributor who sits on the boards of Pfizer and biotech company Illumina. One chain, he said, is in Washington state and one in California.
    Quote Coronavirus global death rate at 3.4 percent, Olympics delay a possibility
    World health officials confirmed on Tuesday the fatality rate for the new coronavirus is at 3.4 percent globally, as Japan's Olympics minister said there's a possibility the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo could be delayed.

    Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the head of the World Health Organization, announced the increase during a media briefing, which differed from the previously estimated global mortality rate of around 2 percent. In comparison, the death rate for the seasonal flu is "far fewer than one percent," he said.

    "While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity; that means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease," Tedros said. "Globally, about 3.4 percent of reported COVID-19 cases have died; by comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1 percent of those infected."

    23 confirmed cases so far in Belgium. One was at a school with 200 students that refused to close its doors. This was a few days ago, and although I could be wrong, I believe some of the new cases are from that school.

    Quote Posted by mgray (here)
    Here's my latest post on Why I believe the World Health Organization has not declared CoVid-19 a pandemic.
    Here's more on this, from Mike Adams.
    World Bank “pandemic bonds” may explain why the WHO has yet to declare the coronavirus a “pandemic” … even as it spreads to over 60 countries
    3 March, 2020

    Even as the first American dies of the Wuhan coronavirus and the first U.S. state declares an emergency to prepare for what a much wider outbreak, the U.S. government has yet to declare a “pandemic,” but there could be significant financial reasons for that.

    As reported by MintPress News, there’s “a little-known specialized bond” that was created in 2017 by the World Bank that could be behind the reason why the U.S. and other global health authorities refuse to use the “p-word” to describe the blossoming virus outbreak.

    The bonds, which are now often referred to as “pandemic bonds,” were reportedly intended to transfer potential pandemic risks in low-income nations to financial markets.

    But, despite the growing outbreak, as we have regularly reported, “the investors who purchased those products could lose millions if global health authorities were to use that label in relation to the surge in global coronavirus cases,” MPN noted further.

    Last week, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that national health authorities are working with state officials to prepare for a “potential pandemic” of the virus, which originated in China in December, if it begins to spread across the country. As of Friday, the World Health Organization stated that more than 80,000 people around the world had contracted the virus; in China alone, more than 2,700 have died from it.

    Some are now saying that the CDC’s concerns about a potential pandemic are too little, too late, and that the Trump administration should have leapt into action much sooner.

    For example, MPN noted, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, said in an interview with The New York Times that the virus is “very, very transmissible, and it almost certainly is going to be a pandemic.”

    In addition, former CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden added that it is “increasingly unlikely that the virus can be contained.”

    So what gives? Where is the designation?

    Well, recall that last week, after the CDC and others mentioned that yes, indeed, the U.S. could be looking at a pandemic soon, Wall Street tanked and lost nearly $1.7 trillion in value, or more than 12 percent of its value — the biggest weekly loss since the 2008 “Great Depression.”

    A $425 million hit to investors?

    Also, as Natural News reported, the WHO has also held off calling the virus a “pandemic,” with its director, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus telling the press the virus wasn’t a “pandemic” yet because the world hasn’t seen “large-scale deaths.”

    We’re not seeing an “uncontained global spread,” you see, and “using the word ‘pandemic’ does not fit the facts.”

    “We must focus on containment while preparing for a potential pandemic,” he added.

    Right after those words, coronavirus began spreading around the world to more countries, including the U.S., where there has now been a virus-related death.

    This is where “pandemic bonds” come into play, MPN reports:

    Some analysts have argued that these pandemic bonds were never intended to aid low-income pandemic-stricken countries, but instead to enrich Wall Street investors. For instance, American economic forecaster Martin Armstrong has called the World Bank’s pandemic bonds “a giant gamble in the global financial casino” and a “scheme like no other…”

    He adds that the bonds could become “a structured derivative time bomb” that blows up financial markets if the WHO declares a full-blown coronavirus pandemic. Armstrong noted further that it is in the global health organization’s interest to make the declaration, but in doing so, bondholders would suffer significant losses.

    “What’s important is to focus on who stands to benefit from this not being declared a pandemic,” economic and business analyst and host of the podcast “Quoth the Raven” Chris Irons told MPN.

    WHO could have other reasons for not making the pandemic declaration, MPN noted, but the most obvious seems to be to avoid a $425 million pandemic bond payout by investors.

    As a compliment to my post above even unbelievably so, someone has worked out a model of personal UV bubble with capacity to destroy pathogens:

    Chinese architect unveils personal bubble that heats up to temperatures high enough to destroy the coronavirus


    Right after face masks, get ready for “To Be a Batman” suit, fitting to your backpack. Yes I can foresee some of my friends will get one as long as it’s affordable.

    Then the post apocalyptic vision of Chinese cities with people walking in winged protection suits. Is it going to work in London though ?

    Updates just in the last 3 hours. Everyone else is now calling this a pandemic, but the WHO will be under great pressure to formally make a statement — whoever stands to lose a lot of $$ from pandemic bonds.

    Quote Closing SXSW won’t make Austin safer yet against coronavirus, health officials say10:45 a.m. update: Austin Public Health officials on Wednesday said they currently have no evidence that closing the South by Southwest series of festivals or any major event will make the community safer.

    “Today the threat of community spread remains low, but we are prepared for it to happen here,” said Dr. Mark Escott, the interim Health Authority for Austin Public Health.

    Escott said SXSW organizers want more information about mitigation strategies because the risk profile can vary depending on the venue. If the population density of the venue increases, the health risk also increases, he said.

    But festival organizers have been “extremely responsive to mitigation strategies,” such as promoting hygiene tips and making hand sanitizer readily available, Escott said.

    “We expect in the future there may be modifications,” because the recommendation to cancel events is being re-evaluated every day, he said.

    Escott said health officials have convened an advisory panel of a dozen or more physicians from around the community, including health professionals from higher education and school districts.

    If Austin Public Health recommends canceling SXSW, festival officials are prepared to be compliant with that recommendation, Austin Mayor Steve Adler said.

    ″(SXSW) has already said that if the medical officers and experts recommend that (SXSW) be canceled, they’re going to cancel,” Adler said.

    If SXSW officials decided to go against a recommendation from Austin Public Health, the mayor could declare a medical emergency and force the festival to shut down.

    But Adler does not think that will have to happen.

    On Tuesday, health officials said at least one person in Travis County was being tested for the new coronavirus.Test results for the person or persons are still pending, but officials expect to get results later Wednesday or Thursday.

    No cases have been confirmed in Central Texas.

    But the illness linked to the new coronavirus, COVID-19 is “not Ebola, it’s not SARS, it’s not MERS,” he said, referring to other deadly communicable diseases. Escott added that he cannot stress enough the importance of hygiene.

    Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt echoed Escott and urged the public to observe healthy practices like covering their sneezes and coughs and washing their hands.

    “Keep calm and carry on, y’all, and remember what your mama taught ya,” Eckhardt said.
    I disagree by not attending.

    My question is about WHEN to stay home and how long? If I isolate in my house but everyone else is still out, no matter how long I stay in, when I go out there will be viral carriers. IMO everyone has to stay in at the same time or its useless? Right?

    "I’m not going to keep reporting on the deaths of so-called coronavirus patients—there will be too many stories emerging.

    This article will briefly analyze the media coverage of nine deaths in Washington state. That coverage is typical.

    First, let’s get one thing straight. Death by itself does not equal coronavirus.

    “…approximately 7,452 people die every day in the United States. In other words, a person dies in the US approximately every 12 seconds.” (indexmundi.com)....

    Understood? The psy-op is: put death and coronavirus in the same sentence. People will unthinkingly buy it." ....

    "Kuow.org: March 3: “Health officials on Tuesday announced three more presumed coronavirus deaths in the Seattle area, bringing the Washington state death toll to nine.”

    The key word in that paragraph is “presumed.” No test results are in yet. And even when they do come in—as I’ve been detailing in these pages—the tests are inadequate and worthless for diagnosing illness and disease.

    Kuow: “A woman in her 80s also died on February 26 from the virus. She was in her 80s and did not go to the hospital.”

    I see. In her 80s. “From the virus.” Couldn’t have been sick at home from other causes. No. Of course not. Couldn’t have been treated with a whole array of toxic pharmaceuticals for a long time"....

    "Kuow: “Health officials in North Carolina reported a presumed coronavirus case connected [to] a resident’s recent travel to Washington state and exposure to the Life Care Center.”

    “Presumed case.” The wholly inadequate and useless tests are not in yet.

    Speaking of which, Politico is reporting on a fire fight between FDA and CDC officials. Seems that, a while back, an FDA official was denied entry to the CDC and had to wait overnight for “clearance to come through.”

    He, or another FDA person, found contamination in the CDC lab where techs were preparing coronavirus test kits for use.

    These kits were undoubtedly PCR tests. I’ve reported on that wholly useless test for diagnosing disease. But you can add another layer of uselessness, because contamination of the PCR means the procedure will quite possibly focus on an entirely irrelevant virus and yield results based on it.

    “Sir, I want to tell you that the inherently worthless PCR we just ran on you was also contaminated with who knows how many meaningless germs, and there is a hundred percent chance that, when I tell you now you are a coronavirus case, I haven’t the slightest idea in the world what I’m talking about. However, we are going to hospitalize you and give you very toxic and dangerous antiviral drugs.” ....
