      Re: TRUMP......is a disease
      Posted on: 2020-02-11 10:34:49   By: Anonymous
       
      The World Health Organization has finally come up with a name for the illness caused by a newly discovered coronavirus that’s infected at least 40,000 people and killed over 1,000 worldwide. Meanwhile, scientists elsewhere have coined a new name for the virus itself.

      At a press briefing held Tuesday, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus debuted the new disease name: COVID-19. COVID stands for Corona Virus Disease, while β€œ19" refers to 2019, when the very first cases in Wuhan, China were publicly reported by the Chinese government in late December.

      Bland as the name might seem, its simplicity was a conscious decision by the WHO and its partners, the World Organization for Animal Health and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

        Kenneth Mak, director of medical services at Singapore’s health ministry, told a news conference it was difficult to be confident in projections that the epidemic will peak in China this month but, in any case, peaks in other countries will lag China by one or two months.

        Fisher said there was no justification for the kind of panic buying of essentials like rice and toilet rolls seen in Singapore.

        β€œThere’s no suggestion we are going to run out of anything,” he said. β€œI would just stay level-headed.”

        β€œFor the vast majority of people it will just be a mild illness but still treat it with respect,” Fisher said

That depends on how it spreads

East and West coastal regions, cities, airports are susceptible. Considering the outbreak cannot be contained, there is no vaccine, that question is almost laughable and moot. It’s just getting started.

          Why? No one wanted Hillbilly in Office, No one wanted Biden back in the WH.....Hillary is old news and there’s someone sewing dismantled information, mutated words, and we all hoped Trump might do the right thing after winning with Russian interests and interference.

          Politics is a game and Americans that are not wealthy, being taxed more than Trump’s children annually just pay the price of their own discord.

          All common citizens making less than 250k will be taxed more than the considerably wealthy. Why? And how can you turn the other cheek when the IRS slaps you from every financial angle? πŸŽˆπŸ’Έ

            Racist & Hillbillies is a very RACIST descriptor of a very large portion of Americans, or are you trying to label Trump Voters? I'm from Calaveras now living in VERY rural Missouri, I voted for our President in ca, & will again BUT... I am neither of those two words above. Over here I am accepted for being a Rastafarian that listens to Punk and everything except Country ( hate it) so I don't fit any of your racist terms above.

      It’s not a pandemic yet.....it has the potential, but read up on that definition and scale that it would need to be considered a pandemic. It’s a true threat, a new virus, which gained a lot of traction and was hushed by China in the beginnings of their outbreak.

      In Wuhan it would be a Pandemic due to the volume of people showing signs. Think about the whole face mask concept, viruses are small enough to go through the filter, and often end up in the eyes since it is airborne. Unless they’re all walking around in sealed suits with oxygen, they are susceptible. But....it is merely an β€œoutbreak” still.

          We do know that, because outbreaks are sizable, within regions. Pandemic is world wide, all cities, small towns, every airport. Meaning the Mass of people have it, vs. a small fraction in comparison to the global scale. Didn’t you fools learn anything in college?....oh wait some of you never got there or didn’t graduate high school.

          And move out of your in-laws house, geez.

          That makes complete sense, for why you senile old farts keep this up everyday.

            More than 8,000 people have died from Ebola in West Africa since February 2014 and it has spread beyond the three countries initially affected. So, it’s an epidemic, right? Or is it an outbreak?

            What about H1N1? The 2009 pandemic infected people around the world. But, so did the SARS epidemic in 2003. What’s the difference between an epidemic and pandemic? What about diseases like malaria and Dengue? Dengue fever infects between 50 and 100 million people each year in countries all over the world. So that’s the same thing as a pandemic? Not quite. Maybe you’ve seen headlines about West Nile Virus, Chikungunya fever or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. And what are emerging and reemerging diseases?

            It’s time to brush up on the vocabulary that can help you understand just what infectious disease experts are trying to tell us.

            Outbreaks, Epidemics And Pandemics

            An outbreak is the sudden occurrence of a disease in a community, which has never experienced the disease before or when cases of that disease occur in numbers greater than expected in a defined area. The current Ebola scenario in West Africa started as an outbreak, which initially affected three countries.

            So what exactly is an epidemic? It is an occurrence of a group of illnesses of similar nature and derived from a common source, in excess of what would be normally expected in a community or region. A classic example of an epidemic would be Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The epidemic killed about 774 people out of 8,098 that were infected. It started as an outbreak in Asia and then spread to two dozen countries and took the form of an epidemic. The same is true for Ebola, which is now being termed an epidemic.

            A pandemic on the other hand refers to a worldwide epidemic, which could have started off as outbreak, escalated to the level of an epidemic and eventually spread to a number of countries across continents. The 2009 flu pandemic is a good example. Between the period of April 2009 and August 2010, there were approximately 18,449 deaths in over 214 countries. The flu virus (H1N1) probably originated in Mexico and within two months, sustained human-to-human transmission in several countries on different continents was reported, prompting the WHO to announce the highest alert level (phase 6, pandemic) on June 12, 2009.

            Endemic Diseases

            Some diseases can remain active in a given area for years and years. A disease is described as endemic when it is habitually present within a given geographic area. For example, Dengue, which is spread by mosquitoes, is endemic in more than 100 countries. So why isn’t dengue considered a pandemic yet? The point to consider here is that the dengue cases are not from a common source. Mosquitoes do not fly beyond a few hundred meters, so the cases in each country are from a different source. Rotavirus-induced infant diarrhea is another example of an endemic disease, which is rampant in developing countries.

            Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases

            We also come across words like β€œemerging” and β€œre-emerging.” An emerging disease is one that has appeared in a population for the first time or one which may have existed before, but is rapidly increasing in incidence. Examples of emerging infectious diseases are SARS, HIV and H1N1.

            Despite advances made in the field of medicine, global travel has added to the complexity of controlling infectious diseases. Both the 2003 SARS epidemic and the 2009 H1N1 pandemic were spread to a large extent due to air travel.

            Chikungunya is another viral disease that is emerging in the Western Hemisphere. The first known cases in the Western Hemisphere occurred around October 2013 among residents of the French side of St. Martin in the Caribbean. WHO confirmed more than 31,000 probable and confirmed cases, which were not imported but indigenous in nature, from numerous other Caribbean islands as of April 2014.

            Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) emerged around April 2012 and has affected countries in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia and North America, with 945 human cases, including 348 deaths as of January 6, 2015.

            Reemerging diseases are those that have historically infected humans, but continue to appear in new locations or reappear after apparent control or elimination. Most of the reemerging disease agents appeared long ago and have survived and persisted in the environment. A classic example is the West Nile virus (WNV). It is thought that WNV arrived in the United States via an infected traveler, bird or mosquito, which entered America through air travel from the Middle East.

β€œOfficials continue to repeat the message: "Trust the Communist Party's leadership."

But many Chinese people are no longer listening.
In the hours after Li's death on Friday morning, millions of comments and posts flooded social media, many of them accusing the government of concealing information about the virus, resulting in the death of Li and hundreds of others. "I want freedom of speech" trended for hours before censors scrubbed the topic clean.

Some social media users pointed out that Li was a "regular person" who had not sought to be a hero, and was detained simply for warning colleagues and friends within a private chat group about a new virus.

Many reflected on how efforts by authorities to prioritize political "stability" over reality had contributed to the current disaster.β€œ

            Let’s be clear,

            β€œWhat Republicans are effectively saying is that it is OK to retaliate againstΒ career officials who respond to a lawful and legitimate congressional subpoena.

            That decisions about our national security should be rooted in settling political scores rather than what is in the best interests of our foreign policy and homeland security. That those within our federal bureaucracy who want to report waste, fraud, abuse, mismanagement and outright wrongdoing will do so knowing that they will be punished for coming forward and will likely lose their jobs.

            This is a complete betrayal of everything Republicans in Congress professed to stand for in the pre-Trump era. It is hypocrisy at its worst. Their collective effort to orphan oversight of the executive branch is an invitation toΒ corruption and cronyism.”

Definitions...........

Why Bother?

Although people use terms like outbreak and epidemic interchangeably, it would only be fair to understand the definitive meaning behind each word. An outbreak can take the form of an epidemic and eventually a pandemic, but that does not entitle us to use these words incorrectly.

Depends on where you live, it's not looking good for California. I suspect the state is keeping hush. But Santa Clara County just took emergency actions. Asians continue to flood California and then continue to run all over the world like Cockroaches

"According to the 2012 Census estimates,[7] the three metropolitan areas with the largest Chinese-American populations were the Greater New York Combined Statistical Area at 735,019 people, the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland Combined Statistical Area at 629,243 people, and the Greater Los Angeles Combined Statistical Area at about 566,968 people."
