The Mysterious Coronavirus Spreading Worldwide

The Fox News commentator who followed the WHO official's comment was spinning the story in a political direction.  We don't know the whole story here as the WHO portion of the video was an excerpt and could be taken out of context.  

 

WHO doesn't have any authority to do anything.  They can't order governments to go into homes and seize anyone.  Let's not get lost in the politics and spin.  

 

Was the WHO suggesting forcibly seizing coronavirus patients and removing them from their homes?  Don't assume so based upon just this one video.  Research the claim.  Check a few (2 or 3) legitimate news sources.  

Here is the entire video of the Press Briefing if anyone cares to either 1) watch video or 2) read Transcript - both attached:
 



Here is a Transcript of the Press Briefing: https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/world-health-organization-covid-19-briefing-transcript-march-30

I knew, way back in January already, that this was going to get bad. :( 

But seeing the number of cases grow to a million and a half

in just a little over 2 months, is one truly staggering statistic.

That was a comment that ran threw this topic a lot:  the speed at which

this virus is capable of infecting vast areas of the globe and

sickening so many people.  :(

Oh, boy...there is my opening line. When Jesus said, 'Matthew 9:36 - On seeing the crowds, he felt pity for them,+ because they were skinned and thrown about like sheep without a shepherd.

 

Jesus really knew what he was talking about when I read this headline.

Seeing that we havent reached peak yet and that we are still rising in ACTIVE numbers, to my understanding is that we haven't even reached the middle yet.

Researchers modelling the spread of the coronavirus emphasise the importance of avoiding busy indoor spaces

 "A joint project carried out by four Finnish research organisations has studied the transport and spread of coronavirus through the air. Preliminary results indicate that aerosol particles carrying the virus can remain in the air longer than was originally thought, so it is important to avoid busy public indoor spaces. This also reduces the risk of droplet infection, which remains the main path of transmission for coronavirus."

It's not as bad as you think this virus will pass as a number of viruses have done in the past the media loves to talk about every single detail. We are wise not to watch to much media as brother Splane said it causes to much anxiety if we watch to much fear mongering media, best to keep praying to Jehovah for a Sound mind to deal with these matters that will soon pass. Hopefully leading to something that everyone on the earth needs a real Government one that not only judges in righteousness but has the ability to solve mankind's biggest problems. Praise be to Jehovah.

It is as bad as you think it is, as anyone having to deal with it will tell you. Hospitals are packed. Its horrific but could be much worse if we ignore the direction. If we all just went about our business it would be even clearer how much worse it would be. 

 

Bro Splane said nothing of fear mongering in the media. He just basically said it's not healthy to focus too much on it.

We will get through it.

So much for the idea of once you have it and recovered you can’t get it again. 
 

 

I wonder if it is acting similar to an autoimmune disorder in that it never really goes away in some people....

no real idea but just a thought...

At FS meeting this morning they were sharing how our county and Whatcom county don't have any confirmed cases of Covid19. HA! Yep we do. The issue is that when people on the peninsula get sick they don't trust the health care system here and end up going across the river to Astoria, Oregon who have reported cases there. It could make people here less cautious because we 'don't have any cases'. The reporting should include where the victim is from to ensure proper documentation. Also, the brothers were commenting on how many people arrived on the peninsula in the last couple of weeks from Seattle and Portland metro areas. They get on the roads and don't have any direction or destination making driving to work miserable. People are just getting in the car and slowly driving around, the authorities are now talking about maybe pulling people over to ask if they are essential workers or what they're doing on the road. Ya right, we'll see if they do that. 

People are getting so jumpy or paranoid. I was walking out of a building yesterday and a fella saw me coming to the door and backed up a bit and as I walked through the door he started back stepping so fast he almost went down! He was equipped with mask, goggles and gloves! Boy if you're that fragile stay home!!  

The picture I included is of a little truck that had spray painted on his tailgate 'Portland people GO HOME, we don't want your germs'. 😵. Sorry you can't really read it.

Fear mongering media gets a lot of money too. I wonder how much will they get when Armageddon comes?
