Corona virus outbreak

Post by fwiw » Sat Jan 25, 2020 7:33 am

There is an interesting informative thread from an Ebola expert






I also stumbled on this, but I see no way to determine quickly if this is genuine information or just fake news


... just my opinion, for what it's worth

One of my Chinese friends said three cities are quarantined so people can't go in or out!!!
Never heard something like this except in history (plage).

First twitter thread is associated with the US Govt. CDC, likely reliable.
Second twitter thread? No way to verify source, I wouldn't give it credence.

I just received a similar report (albeit more personal) from a friend of a friend who is stationed in China, describing catastrophic conditions

Protective face masks are selling out; hard to find in China.

Do we have the technolgy to create these viruses in a lab?
Or in other words can artificial mutation be performed in a lab?
Can this be that bad?
What about countries like India with a very large population?

Is the following video fake, in your opinion?

We also face a new threat. The next epidemic has a good chance of originating on a computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus or a contagious and highly deadly strain of flu. So, the point is that we ignore the strong link between health security and international security at our peril. Whether it occurs by the hand of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists show through their models that a respiratory-spread pathogen would kill 30 million people in less than a year. And there is a reasonable probability of that taking place in the years ahead.

Tashi Delek! Happy Losar, year of the rat!
I was still thinking on the structure of the virus, just 3 proteins there... And so I saw that even though the shape of it resembles the solar corona, that it does not have a plasma membrane. I’m not referring here to the concept of plasma as in “plasma tv” but at least there be some fluid within it as in “saliva” at the least. And then that even though it looks like a piggybank (leave the sun out!), it does not store any fluid within. It causes the inflammation, the fluid, to be outside itself. It produces but without retribution. So that might be a goal for the virus if it would have any head to evolve as a form of life in samsara. Yes, I tried practicing compassion with the virus. If I did not succeed, I tried.

Thank you!

Dr. Pres. Donald Trump will be teaching us on the coronavirus today at 6pm ET. :rolleye:

Of course, CDC staff is only volunteering until they'll be deported to their countries.
Because "it's Donald's world". :jumping:

Let us watch! Let the Russians watch! Hey, why not? Let everyone watch! :bow:

I was reading the news about the person in California and when I came upon the word "community" that's when some I don't even know from where stored memory kicked in.
It was in the '90s and my grandparents were alive and maybe it was TB or some other alert that made everyone feel uneasy. But life had to go on.
And I remember that the medical staff took charge of whatever outbreak was then while we were encouraged to practice good hygiene and good protection. And that was it.
I don't want to give false hopes, but to me it seems that we have been already through this. And if we don't conquer it over here, then where else?
Thanks and have a great day!

Selection of Mike Pence to oversee government’s response to coronavirus scare should have been quarantined

If anything for its sense of reassurance, exactly as our president attempted to do by tabbing our vice president to oversee the government’s response. Containment should always be the word choice we want to hear from top government officials after hearing the word “outbreak.” Not “miracle” or “morality” or a disbelief of any kind in medical science.

I have my doubts that Pence can rise to this occasion due to his questionable past regarding medical science and prevention efforts without judgment. Thoughts and prayers are welcomed as a way to deal with this virus outbreak, but I’d prefer science and containment. Does Pence truly believe in both?

There are no conversion camps for anyone diagnosed with this coronavirus.

Coronavirus is here and rumors have it that it has been spreading undetected in Washington for 6 wks. Most probably, you'll receive zero help.

Understand with your mind that no one will stand up for your rights other than you!

Practice tonglen to release your mind from the shackles of oppression! Do it because you're precious human birth!

You are smart, you are beautiful, express your Self!

A cup of hot cold that is mint tea 🍵 does the trick on my mind. I think of Xmas candies hanging from the tree, I think of love, I think of good times, even if a few, and then just be happy with what I have accomplished this existence. Somewhere inside me there must be a kid looking scared at the world. I can only hope it will get better. That spark of hope is what should be my light.

This is how i’m going to handle myself faced with the outbreak.
Thanks for listening to my crap!

A timely advice:
Coronavirus: Don't use vodka to sanitise hands

A rush on hand sanitiser to protect against the coronavirus has seen homemade versions spring up, including one based on a handmade vodka.

But vodka maker Tito's quickly shot down a tweet suggesting the use of its spirits is strong enough for that purpose.

Some people are combining rubbing alcohol and aloe for a sanitiser.

That can work as long as the version is at least 60% alcohol.

But posts on social media that suggested Texas-based Tito's Handmade Vodka could be used instead saw the company cite the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to quickly refute the idea.

The 3 above dots are because I used to be wild with the aghoras - Om namah Shivaya!
Corona virus and the Horseshoe bat - It's like they found each other.
The bat blind as a bat, can't see he's dirty.
Echo location:
You're dirty,
you're dirty,
you're dirty,

wash your feet,
wash your feet,
wash your feet,

with soap and water,
soap and water,
soap and water!

Wash your hands
wash your hands
wash your hands


And the virus is only legs as in "I see it all" without any head. - Dumbo!

"Contrary to myth, bats aren't blind. In fact, research shows that depending on the circumstances, bats sometimes prefer using eyesight to sound when hunting."
So: Use your eyesight! Use it or lose it!

And for the virus: You're so incomplete, what do you want? And you're so self-centered... Guess what? Galileo Galilei proved you're not the center of this system. You agitate for nothing. You're not the Sun. You are round, but you're not it. Proteins are sticking out of you. Comb them!

Even if you're viral, you're still not the Sun. Look at your size! Look at the Sun's size! Compare! You have to have a head to compare. Aha, you don't have 1!
After you store some energy for comparison, you could do it.
Rest! You might be tired! And it's Friday! Say TGIF! :)
