In today’s world, only privileged people say “I don’t support violence of any kind”

It is a technique of distancing because of discomfort. Behind the “violence” of these protests is an entire civil”i”zation’s history of rabid violence against its own people, which continues today. Violence cloaked in consumer habits for low-cost goods made in subhuman conditions worldwide…but out of our sight. Violence in a rape culture popularized from Disney to Universal, Rap to Country, and beyond.

Violence in our work out gear, our yoga clothes (no irony there), in mass factory farms of greens promoting monoculture destruction of diverse ecosystems (yep, you thought I was going to say beef) all for those spirit elevating green juices.

Violence in our factory meat production, in our addiction to technology and the cobalt needed for those batteries taken via violence as Africans are robbed of their land, health, and history.

Violence in the reservations set away from public view where Indigenous culture has had its roots ripped up, raped, burned, stomped on, and set ablaze again.

Violence in religion, yes, religion, where belief after belief has been forcibly thrust down the throat and into the bodies of indigenous people on every continent since religion was created.

So, when I hear people say, I cannot condone violence of any kind, which aspect do they mean?

It must be nice to remove one’s self so far from the reality and history of those around you that you can negate the emotions, the rage, the frank history that propels the so-called violence.

In fact, to stand by and “not condone” is to stand with the oppressor who says repeatedly “if you would just comply there won’t be violence”

No, the time for absolution from violence has come to an end. It is time to be violent, to be rabid and vocal, to stand, link arms, defend, hold strong.

It is time to tear down these violent laws, these violent churches, these violent consumer habits, and claim restitution.

We cannot sit and cower from our anger, we cannot sit and have pleasant intellectual discourse, we did that, and it got us here.

2020 YEAR OF TERROR and VENGEANCE

Lost your livelihood during this time of record unemployment? Wrestling with the impossible choice of feeding your family or getting evicted and living on the street? No worries, you can apply to be a contact tracer and earn up to $22 an hour ratting out your family, friends, neighbors, and enemies!

Build your future career rooting out those who think they know someone who caught COVID-19, maybe someone in their small apartment complex was recently infected and shares the laundry room. Well, if the team can’t connect with them over the phone, you can send someone in protective gear to not so politely knock on their door.

Gestapo tactics anyone?

It’s been estimated only 15% of Gestapo cases started because of their surveillance operations. The inefficient Gestapo only numbered 16,000 in a population of approximately 66 million so they depended on family, friends, and neighbors to do their dirty work for them. [1] A far greater number of Gestapo cases began following tip-offs from members of the public by widespread petty and false complaints. Every allegation, no matter how trivial, was investigated with meticulous and time-consuming thoroughness. An estimated 42% of these denunciations were false. Authorities debated changing the system, but ultimately decided to keep it because it was great for keeping everyone in line, it’s estimated approximately 42% of accusations were personally motivated.

A Berlin stoker reported a prostitute who gave him a venereal disease. Husbands and wives informed on each other. A housewife in Mannheim told Gestapo her husband was making derogatory comments about Hitler’s regime. Turns out the wife wanted her husband out of the way to continue a love affair with an off-duty soldier. In another case, two married doctors were involved. The wife accused the husband of carrying out illegal abortions. This led to his arrest and imprisonment. The husband claimed his wife had a vengeful motive. The husband had passed on a sexually transmitted disease to his wife while carrying on a love affair of his own. Their motive, revenge!

[1] Nazi leadership introduced a hostile environment and initiated measures, whether through legislation or violence, to establish an ethnically defined “people’s community.” By being largely compliant, those who were not excluded had helped to create an even more hostile environment, one in which it was possible to carry out terror in broad daylight without significant unrest or intervention on behalf of the persecuted.

Ever since Coronavirus lockdown measures went into effect, police stations have been inundated with calls denouncing neighbors for excessive public outings. The avalanche of complaints about joggers, overly frequent trips to the supermarket, people not wearing masks has increased exponentially.

And now it’s been announced, several companies are partnering with the United States government offering $17-$22 an hour for ordinary citizens to turn in their family, friends, neighbors and enemies to authorities. What motivates these people to inform on their fellow-man? Money? Fear-based insinuations? Perceived threat of virus? Hostility toward those disparaged as “other”? Are these people convinced it’s their civic duty? Maybe resentments or grudges?

Isn’t it enough Apple and Google, announced on April 10, 2020, they expect Digital Contact Tracing (DCT) to be released in May with the “Coronavirus 2019 Enhanced Tracking Technology for iOS and Android”; wireless radio signals warning people someone they have been in contact with ‘may perhaps’ be infected?

[3] Are we to continue remaining passively on the sidelines while government continues to step on our Constitutional [4] [5] Fourth Amendment rights which prohibit “unreasonable searches and seizures” requiring warrants be supported by probable cause determining what is permissible surveillance at the federal and state levels?

In Katz v United States; defined an unreasonable search as; “when the government engages in warrantless surveillance of individuals under circumstances in which they have a ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ the use of eavesdropping devices violates privacy.

[3] Arguably, the [4] [5] Fourth Amendment issues could be avoided by making use of the so-called ‘special needs doctrine’; accordingly, a warrantless search would not pass the Katz test to be predicated on a ‘special need’, relating to national security, and whether individuals can be subject to quarantines, forced medical testing, mandatory vaccines and involuntary RIFD microchip implant devices, raising the question of government “seizures” (of the body).

There is a complex point to be made about compliance when ‘special needs’ are not conducted for a traditional law enforcement purpose, and circumstances make securing a warrant impracticable, the Supreme Court has ruled warrantless searches may be permissible. However, the ‘special needs doctrine’, is highly controversial.

In Ferguson v City of Charleston, the Medical University of South Carolina subjected unwitting pregnant women to tests for cocaine use; those who tested positive were then charged with criminal child abuse. Ultimately, the Supreme Court noting the ‘special need doctrine’ cannot serve law enforcement purposes. Because the women were threatened with criminal sanctions based on a non-consensual search, the ‘special need’ could not justify the search.

In the context of ‘Contact Tracing’, application of a ‘special need’ consideration would likely preclude any sort of criminal penalty. Therefore, a person could not face criminal sanctions for a quarantine violation based on information obtained through a non-consensual search i.e. “Enhanced Tracking Technology”.

Now back to applying to be a ‘Contact Tracer’ earning up to $22 an hour ratting out your family, friends, neighbors, and enemies, snitching on rule-breakers, wantonly lying about marginalized people, narcing on annoying neighbors, getting even with an ex. When do we stop tattling on one another?

So, think about it, how willing are you to trade in your own privacy and the privacy of others for profit?

And lest we forget [2] [6] Eva-Maria Buch studying foreign languages at Humboldt University; she was accused of passing secrets to the Soviet Union. On October 10th, 1942, Eva was arrested by a Gestapo officer who said she’d be treated more leniently if she named other collaborators within the group, she replied: ‘That would make me as low as you want me to appear.’… Eva Buch was guillotined at Plötzensee Prison, Berlin August 5, 1943. She was 22 years old.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

Remember Evangelical Christians; Matthew 7:2: “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”… Because you might be the next one who finds the Gestapo kicking down your door!

Surgical Masks ~ CDC, OSHA, New England Journal of Medicine, Surgeon General etc.

People conceive face masks in terms of physical tools to mitigate risk, yet masks are nothing more than symbolic gestures producing a false sense of security. Psychologically, masks provide protection to a person’s perception of future-oriented risk reinforcing fears, increasing anxiety, and instilling potential loss of something valuable in anticipation of a threatening future, just perceived in the present.

In the 1919 influenza pandemic, masks were available and dispensed to populations, but they had no impact on the epidemic curve. At the time, it was unknown the influenza organism is nanoscopic and can penetrate the surgical mask barrier. As recently as 2010, the US National Academy of Sciences declared, “in the community setting, face masks are not designed or certified to protect the wearer from exposure to respiratory hazards.”

Dr. Eli Perencevich, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Iowa’s College of Medicine “The average healthy person does not need to have a mask, and they shouldn’t be wearing masks, masks won’t help people avoid the virus and they may actually increase the risk of getting it. People wear them incorrectly increasing the risk of infection because they’re touching their face more often.”

Homemade masks were created as a fashionable way to keep the wearer from breathing in large particles, like car exhaust, air pollution, and pollen during allergy season. They were not conceived of as a way to protect you from acquiring COVID-19.

I’ve been saying for 2 months, every time I put on one of these masks I get severe headaches lasting hours upon hours as a result of hypo-ventilation i.e. not being able to breathe properly to get oxygen into my lungs.

When we take a breath, we pull air into our lungs which primarily contains nitrogen and oxygen. When we exhale, we breathe out carbon dioxide. … Just like oxygen, carbon dioxide is transferred to blood to be carried to the lungs, where it is removed when we exhale. Statics prove; moderate to high levels of carbon dioxide cause headaches and fatigue, higher concentrations produce nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and loss of consciousness often occurs because excess carbon dioxide uses up space in the air instead of oxygen, creating an environment for asphyxiation. A high concentration of carbon dioxide in a confined space is toxic.

I’ve seen people walking/jogging down the street where there is absolutely no one within a quarter-mile in any direction. It’s dangerous to wear a mask when there is absolutely no possibility of infecting someone or being infected by someone. I’ve even seen people wearing masks in their cars; masks habitually slip over eyes, not to mention passing out from inhaling carbon dioxide, either can cause accidents. People, if you’re forced by the government, please use good common sense when wearing one.

AND to those who haphazardly throw potentially hazardous medical waste (masks, gloves, hand-wipes, etc.) on the ground; litter ends up in storm drains and bodies of water where wildlife mistake these items for food, and lest we forget the people tasked with picking up your precarious discards. Where is your respect for others and the environment? Public shaming and a minimum $1,000 for a first-time offense, double the fine and jail time for additional offenses!!!

UPDATED 5-15-2020 Based on a comment by Mara May 14, 2020 at 1:47 pm

“There actually is evidence that masks helped the Spanish flu epidemic. There is easily found research based evidence. Please research this because you are stating false information.”

Mara, “if masks are so beneficial why do public health officials warn people to remain at least 6 feet apart from one another, even if they’re wearing masks?”

Face masks don’t filter out the particle size of the coronavirus. Any viruses aerosolized in a sneeze or cough will get through the mask. Viruses are about 20400 nm (nanometer) in size (0.00080314961”) and considered organic structures which interact with living organisms. Rather than a living organism, bacteria are larger, about 1000 nm in size (3.937e-5”). They are visible under light microscope. Whereas viruses are infectious particles about 100 times smaller than bacteria and can only be observed by electron microscopy.

A virus is a small infectious agent replicating only inside the living cells of other organisms and only active when inside a host because viruses can’t undergo any chemical reactions of their own outside a host cell, they do not need energy because the host cells take over the needed energy to reproduce the viruses.

It is believed the N95 mask ‘may’ effectively prevent viral spread. These masks, when properly fitted, seal closely to the face and filter out 95% of particles 0.3 microns or larger, however, they’re also difficult to fit correctly. For those reasons, the CDC does not recommend them for general use. [4]

“Even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death. The respirator is intended to prevent specific diseases or infections. The respirator is labeled or otherwise represented as filtering surgical smoke or plumes, filtering specific amounts of viruses or bacteria, reducing the amount of and/or killing viruses, bacteria, or fungi, or affecting allergenicity and contains coating technologies unrelated to filtration (e.g., to reduce and or kill microorganisms).” As stated above an organism can be seen only through a microscope. Microorganisms include bacteria, protozoans, and fungi and “can only be observed by electron microscopy”.

CDC

also does not recommend surgical masks. Surgical masks are not regulated, anyone can sell anything and call it a surgical mask. [4] “While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and face.” These masks don’t seal against the face, even though they include non-woven polypropylene moisture resistant layers, approximately 70% of the outside air moves through the mask and about 30% travels around the sides… 30% plus 70% = 100% ineffective.

Fabric masks (handkerchief/bandanna), lacking non-woven moisture-repelling layers are too porous to trap any germs allowing air in and around the sides, . They impede only about 2% of airflow. Wearing basic fabric masks over a warm, wet mouth breeds infection rather than deters it.

By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain. [3]

The World Health Organization (WHO)

[1] discourages mask use: “The wide use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not supported by current evidence and carries uncertainties and critical risks. There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”

There’s been enough research done to be able to confidently say masks wouldn’t be able to stop the spread of infection and they only have a small effect on transmission. We shouldn’t be relying on masks to help us go back to normal. All of this leakage in surgical and fabric masks are why public health officials don’t believe wearing a mask prevents anyone from catching a virus already floating around in the environment because airflow follows the path of least resistance.

Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams

urges the public to stop buying face masks “”They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, face masks actually increase your risk of infection if they aren’t worn properly.”

Dr. William Schaffner, a preventive medicine professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine,

“the rush to buy masks is a “psychological thing.” Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “There is no role for these masks in the community.”

New England Journal of Medicine

[6]“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

[6] “It is clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Expanded masking protocols’ greatest contribution may be to reduce the transmission of anxiety, over and above whatever role they may play in reducing transmission of Covid-19.”

OSHA

[7]Cloth:
“Will not protect the wearer against airborne transmissible infectious agents due to loose fit and lack of seal or inadequate filtration.”

Surgical masks:
“Will not protect the wearer against airborne transmissible infectious agents due to loose fit and lack of seal or inadequate filtration.”

Respirators:
“Require proper training, fit testing, availability of appropriate medical evaluations and monitoring, cleaning, and oversight by a knowledgeable staff member.”

*For those trying to find fault in this source, keep in mind the word “intended.” The masks are “intended” to work, but they don’t. They cannot use they “will” because it’s a lie. Wording is very important. Pay attention and you won’t have to attack everything so quickly. It will save you and I a lot of time.

The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 was much deadlier than the coronavirus pandemic, 50 million people died. Experts reviewing evidence from 1918 concluded flu masks failed to control infection. In 1919, Wilfred Kellogg’s [2] study for the California State Board of Health concluded that mask ordinances “applied forcibly to entire communities” did not decrease cases and deaths, as confirmed by comparisons of cities with widely divergent policies on masking.”

The Woodstock music festival took place in August 1969. The “Hong Kong flu” (H3N2) influenza pandemic lasted between the winter of 1968 and the early months of 1970 and within the 18 months killed an estimated 100,000 people in the U.S. and 1 million worldwide, yet daily life, more or less, proceeded as if it were business as usual. There were no statewide lockdowns or mandatory mask requirements, and large public events, such as the Woodstock music festival, took place as scheduled.

Masks do have one effect: People tend to stay away from those wearing them because “masks and social distancing are the new herd immunity” … By their reasoning: if I’m not wearing a mask, theirs won’t work. … Great scare tactic to continue keeping people socially segregated.

And BTW, the Coronavirus didn’t create a $1.5 trillion student debt crisis, it didn’t make the minimum wage a starvation wage, and it didn’t leave 40% of Americans unable to afford a minor emergency. Trickle-down economics did.

Oh, and FYI, [5] The CDC NOW SAYS CORONAVIRUS ‘DOES NOT SPREAD EASILY’ ON SURFACES. Its guidelines now include a section on ways the virus doesn’t easily spread, including from touching surfaces or objects. Other ways the virus doesn’t easily spread are from animals to people or people to animals. Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration said “there was no evidence to suggest the virus can spread through food or what it’s wrapped in, and that there was no need to wipe down groceries.”

REVIEW OF THE MEDICAL LITERATURE
Key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature establishing that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:

Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.

Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/epidemiology-and- infection/article/face-masks-to-prevent-transmission-of-influenza-virus-a-systematic- review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05 None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H).

There were no statistically significant differences in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza, laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infections, laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, and influenza-like illness using N95 respirators and surgical masks. Meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of N95 respirators against laboratory-confirmed bacterial colonization (RR = 0.58, 95% CI 0.43-0.78). The use of N95 respirators compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

HAND SANITIZER WARNING

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning the public to stop using the following hand sanitizer products as they tested positive to contain 81% (v/v) methanol and NO ethyl alcohol. Those who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should call 911 and seek immediate care. Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Children accidently ingesting these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning. If you have any of these products, the FDA says to dispose of them immediately in appropriate hazardous waste containers. DO NOT flush or pour them down the drain.

Corona Beer, Corona del Mar, Coronavirus

Ok I’ll admit, the Corona Beer and Corona del Mar were just the hook to get you to read another article on SOME EXPERT ADVICE ON CORONAVIRUS by the eminent pathologist James Robb, MD FCAP, FB

A message from Bruce Lipton regarding the Corona virus, March 10, 2020:
Dear Family of Love and Seekers Everywhere,
Coronavirus: Do Not Fear the Bogeyman

The world is currently gripped in fear of the scary coronavirus. Let’s first get one fact clear: If you have ever had a cold or flu in your life, odds are that it was the result of a coronavirus infection. Yes, coronaviruses cause colds.

But we are being programmed with the belief that this particular cold virus is “deadly.” This fear has shut down concerts, conferences, and major public events all over the world. The fear has led to quarantines and closing down of international travel. It has even led to a major scarcity of toilet paper in Australia, where concerned citizens emptied the shelves of this commodity in anticipation that they will be walled up in their homes with this infection.

First, how deadly is this version of the virus? Yes, there have been corona-related deaths reported with the statistics suggesting that 2% of the infected population dies. Wow! That number is almost 1% more deaths than are attributed to any conventional flu the world experiences. What is misleading is the fear that everyone who carries this virus may die from their cold. This is simply untrue! The health of almost all the victims of this coronavirus was already compromised before they were infected.

For example, the following information was provided by the news in regard to the 6 patients that died of the virus in the state of Washington last week (I added the bold print):

Washington State

Six people have died in Washington and health officials have identified 18 cases.

Four of the cases in King County were linked to the Life Care nursing facility in Kirkland. More than 50 residents and staff at the facility are being tested.

The deaths announced Monday, according to health officials, included:

-A male in his 70s, who lived at LifeCare. He had underlying health conditions and died Sunday.

-A female resident of LifeCare in her 70s. She also had underlying health conditions and died Sunday.

-A woman in her 80s, who was already reported as in critical condition at EvergreenHealth, died Sunday.

-A Snohomish County resident at EvergreenHealth also died but details of that patient have not been given.

Two previously reported deaths included a man in his 70s who had underlying health conditions and had been a resident of LifeCare. He died at EvergreenHealth on Feb. 29.

The other was a man in his 50s with underlying health conditions. He was admitted with serious respiratory issues and tested positive for the virus. He died at EvergreenHealth Medical Center in Kirkland.

As emphasized in this report, the health of all those that died with the coronavirus was already compromised. Healthy people get cold and flu symptoms, while those already sick and near death’s door may experience the “Grim Reaper” when infected by the virus. True, sick people are more vulnerable to the virus; healthy people really have nothing to fear.

As presented in The Biology of Belief, stress is responsible for up to 90% of illness, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. When an individual is in stress, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) shuts down the immune system to conserve the body’s energy for running away from the perceived stressor, that proverbial “saber-toothed tiger.” Stress hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system, that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.

The conclusion is clear: The fear of the coronavirus is more deadly than the virus itself!

The media (perhaps in conjunction with the pharmaceutical industry) is compromising people’s health using the fear card! This is the result of negative thinking (the nocebo effect) which is the complete opposite of the placebo effect manifest through positive thinking! If you make efforts to stay healthy, with good nutrition, exercise, taking vitamins and supplements, and more importantly, avoiding stress (e.g., the “fear” of the virus), even if you do get infected with the virus, you will likely only end up with a cold and/or slight fever.

If you are someone with a compromised immune system, it is supportive to surround yourself with loving family and friends, nature, and positive thoughts as well as any other nutrition and vitamins that you may already be taking for your health and wellbeing. Following your intuition about what is best for you is key! The point here is that no matter who you are and what your state of health, you will only benefit from steering clear of the fear and supporting yourself in whatever way feels best to you.

Please remember the truth of quantum physics, the most valid of all sciences on the planet: Consciousness is creating your life experiences! Are you being conscious of disease … or of health?

Wishing you all Health, Happiness and Harmony.

With Love and Light,
Bruce

Bruce Harold Lipton, is an American developmental biologist who supported the theory that gene expression could be influenced by environmental factors, i.e. environmental factors have a greater impact on health than genetic research has previously determined.

Authored by James Robb, MD FCAP, FB

Dear Colleagues, As some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.
Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.

7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

NOTE: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land is infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! Jim
