Global Pandemic Could Have Been Avoided
A new study out of the University of Southampton in the UK found that the spread of the coronavirus could have been reduced by 95% if China had acted sooner.
Up to 95%!
They found that if the Chinese had acted 1 week sooner, spread would have been reduced by 66%. Acting two weeks sooner would have reduced spread by 86%.
And acting three weeks sooner would have reduced spread by 95%.
Just three weeks sooner.
China tried to downplay the disease in its early phases, due to “social harmony.”
And now we are all suffering for their “social harmony.”
They lied to the world at the beginning, saying it wasn’t transmittable from human to human and punished doctors who tried to get the truth out.
Think about this: the first case was in mid-November. They didn’t put Wuhan on lockdown until January 23rd. That’s nine weeks they didn’t act.
That’s not social harmony. That’s madness.
GM and Ford are the latest businesses to shut down American manufacturing plants.
Both plan to be out of production at least until March 30.
“These automakers are currently well-stocked with inventory and as more of the country moves to follow shelter-in-place orders, vehicle sales will inevitably be softer,” said an industry analyst. “But if the proposed stimulus package ends up moving through the Senate, this could help sales get to a bit of a healthier place when normal life resumes.”
Workers will get unemployment benefits, with the companies themselves paying the rest to make sure they get full pay.
Both have said they will look into making much needed ventilators during this time.
With many churches closing down due to pandemic concerns, some are finding new ways to talk to their congregation.
One new way is drive-thru prayer. This way, the church can help its congregation without the exposure sitting together brings.
Another church is planning to use a jumbotron, to talk to congregants sitting in their cars.
One thing about America: when things get tough, we know how to make it work!
Migrants to Blame for Coronavirus Spread?
It seems that migrants were the cause of pandemic spread in both Iran and China.
In Iran, officials were able to trace the cause of the outbreak (which is decimating the country) to the workers and technicians from China who migrated there due to China-backed infrastructure projects.
In Italy, it is believed that the 100,000 Chinese workers from Wuhan and Wenzhou who moved there to work in factories, getting flights back and forth even after the outbreak, were the main cause of spread.
Many of these workers migrated there illegally.
The world will change after this is over. That is for certain.
Marvel Must Want Less Sales
Marvel announced a new comic series, called the New Warriors.
And it is doomed to failure from its start.
The characters are all leftist caricatures that no one in their right mind wants to read about.
One is a non-binary person named Snowflake, while another is called Safespace.
You can’t make this stuff up.
There is also Trailblazer, who is an overweight African-American girl with a backpack, and another called Screentime.
Maybe they should just stick with movies.
