The message of this article is do not listen to the fake news media unless you are trying to correct their lies and exaggerations (Yellow Journalism).

Question everything including Citizen Wells.

Your your brains and common sense.

We are being bombarded with lies about the impact of Covid-19 deaths on the US.

From Citizen Wells April 4, 2020.

3.5 million”Coronavirus Covid-19 US death stats April 4, 2020, 35 states 50 or less, 19 states 15 or less, NY and NJ account for half, Geography population and/or responsibility?”

https://citizenwells.com/2020/04/04/coronavirus-covid-19-us-death-stats-april-4-2020-35-states-50-or-less-19-states-15-or-less-ny-and-nj-account-for-half-geography-population-and-or-responsibility/

The population of a state can be a factor.

However, CT, with a population of 3.5 million has 2,718 deaths while NC, the 9th most populous state with a population of 10.5 million has 492 deaths.

The prominent difference is CT being near the epicenter, NY City.

5 states, NY, NJ, MA, PA and CT account for 61% of deaths.

9 states, NY, NJ, MA, IL, CA, PA, MI, CT and LA account for 76% of the deaths.

Most of the US has a problem, but not one of the magnitude portrayed by the fake new media.

From Fox News.

“Sources believe coronavirus originated in Wuhan lab as part of China’s efforts to compete with US

There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.

The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly. Sources emphasized — as is often the case with intelligence — that it’s not definitive and should not be characterized as such. Some inside the administration and the intelligence and epidemiological communities are more skeptical, and the investigation is continuing.

What all of the sources agree about is the extensive cover-up of data and information about COVID-19 orchestrated by the Chinese government.”

NC has a population of approx 10.5 million and is the 9th most populous state.

NC has an extremely low death rate from Covid-19.

I agree with social distancing and common sense measures.

I do not agree with NC Governor Roy Cooper’s absurd edict today, April 9, 2020, in his executive Executive order.

This is not NY, NJ or idiot LA.

Governor Cooper has overstepped his authority, apparently lost his mind and should be removed from office.

From ABC 11 News:

“Governor Roy Cooper announced during a news conference that a new executive order will go into effect Monday that makes changes to guidelines for shopping and grocery and retail stores.

Starting Monday at 5 p.m., stores cannot exceed 20 percent of fire capacity or five people for every 1,000 square feet at any given time.

Stores must also have 6-foot markers at congregation areas like checkouts and must perform frequent cleaning and disinfection.

Additionally, the executive order will encourage that all stores have shopping hours for seniors and at-risk people as well as have hand sanitizer accessible for shoppers. The governor asks that stores use shields for employees at checkout and limit aisles to one-way traffic.”

https://abc11.com/health/watch-gov-cooper-gives-update-on-covid-19-in-nc/6088955/

“five people for every 1,000 square feet”

Cooper is obviously on drugs.

I waited to write this. To let the dust settle.

I am all for erring on the side of caution.

I was ok with shutting down schools early. Although not ok with stating far out in the future ahead of facts.

I am ok with common sense precautions like limiting crowds and social distancing.

I can now state with near certainty, based on the facts and more common sense, that we need to end nationwide shutdowns.

One size does not fit all.

This is a large country that is mostly not like the NY City metro area. I.E., not too densely populated and better prepared.

Below is the chart of annual deaths in the US by cause:

Number of deaths for leading causes of death:

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
  • Diabetes: 83,564
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm

Flu and pneumonia are 7th.

There are 189,356 cases of Wuhan Covid-19 disease in the US with 4,073 deaths.

Over half of the cases and almost half of the deaths are in NY and NJ.

New York and New Jersey have the problem and the rest of the nation should not pay for their mistakes.

I believe we should help them.

I have long believed that humans should not live packed together like sardines.

That has always led to disease and crime

Severe measures such as shutdowns should be a local decision.

The governor of NC for example, Roy Cooper, should not now dictate a statewide shutdown.

NC has a population of over 1o.5 million with only 12 Wuhan Covid-19 deaths.

The cure is worse than the disease.

From Mises Wire.

“The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives.

Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, business closures, restrictions on assembly and movement, and quarantines are not constitutionally permissible under some magic “emergency” doctrine. At a minimum, the federal government must show potential imminent harm by specific infected individuals at some form of hearing or trial.

These due process requirements are not suspended.

State and local officials may claim, or even possess, lawful police powers to shut down their communities. We offer no analysis of such powers or claims under the myriad of state constitutions and authorizing legislation. But they should resist exercising these powers. The governor of Virginia, in particular, deserves admonition for unilaterally imposing a lengthy period of virtual house arrest.

We do not know, and cannot yet know, how many Americans will become sick or die from the virus. We do know that predictions regarding infection and death rates are highly unreliable. Even actual deaths attributable to COVID-19 are not so easy to count, as Italy has discovered. Age, general health, and comorbidity are difficult variables to assess, and people may die “with” the virus but not “from” it. It is also very difficult to assess the lethality of the virus relative to previously known types of flu and colds.”

Wuhan China flu aka Coronavirus Covid-19 observations and lessons, America’s finest hour?, Safety over profit and people over fear

Wuhan China flu aka Coronavirus Covid-19 observations and lessons, America’s finest hour?, Safety over profit and people over fear

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,”...Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men”…Edward R. Murrow

“In this entertainment, sports centric culture of ours, one of the actions that has impressed me most is the quick action to cancel sporting events in the interest of public safety while subordinating the money interest.”…Citizen Wells

 

Natural disasters are inevitable. A part of life on Earth.

Something like the Wuhan virus was coming sooner or later.

I, like many of my friends and associates are concerned about the origins and possible intents of the virus.

Was this designed and planned by the Chinese to impact the US?

I do not know.

But it did cross my mind.

For the moment I am in survivor mode.

Encounters from yesterday prompted me to ponder a variety of things and to write this article.

First, to satisfy the concerns of many, and to honor a long time commenter, is the following information:

“Now, regarding what you’ve heard about this virus and how it got going. It did NOT originate at the ‘live market’ in Wuhan; bats were not being sold there at the time, but it IS a bat virus. I got a report from an ‘insider’ in China who said that they’d be killed if discovered. This is what they said: There is a researcher in Wuhan (one of the very few labs on the planet that works with viruses) and any researcher-being who they are-wants to make an amazing discovery, publish papers and be well known. This researcher was able to isolate the virus and have it jump from bat to human. The next project was transmission from human to human and obviously, that was successful. The researcher published a paper. It was read by some. It has since disappeared. Bioweapon? Unlikely. ‘Escape from the lab’ a la Stephen King’s ‘The Stand?’ Probable. Why this research? Unknown.”

Within hours of receiving the above, I met a young man who is a friend of a relative. Someone who I had heard much about but never spoken to. A very level headed, intelligent person.

A few minutes into the conversation, he stated his belief about the origin of the Wuhan China virus. He believed that it was developed by the Chinese in retaliation for Trump’s tariff measures. Something that had crossed my mind.

This needs to be investigated after the emergency is over.

Now for the most important thing to be written.

I went to Harris Teeter for some grocery items yesterday. Not a lot. I stay pretty well stocked under normal circumstances, buying in bulk sale items.

The folks at Harris Teeter, as usual have done a great job of trying to keep the shelves full. I was pleasantly surprised and purchased what I needed.

I thanked them for their efforts. I urge you to do likewise.

They are a shining example of Americans doing their jobs in the face of adversity and America’s ability to keep the supply chain rolling.

Of course I was focused on my task.

Two conversations stick out:

  1. A woman in my age group and I discussed ice cream and grandkids. It turns out that she is unable to see hers because of a quarantine situation.
  2. In the checkout line behind me the younger woman had an overflowing cart. She has 3 teenage boys. We talked about kids and remote schooling and one thing or another. When leaving I stated I enjoyed talking to her and she said she did too because she had few people to talk to.

Perhaps I should have spent a few more minutes speaking with the first lady.

As I have aged I have tried to be more aware of the person who is checking me out in a store or assisting me with more empathy. To slow down and interact.

Not everyone wants to interact but it does not matter.

Perhaps we all should reach out to our fellow Americans as we are increasingly being isolated.

We are all in this together and should behave as Americans have done in other hard times.

Lastly, I am thankful for President Trump.

Aside from his being a strong leader, the following 3 things stand out:

  1. The strong economy that we entered this crisis with.
  2. His insistence on protecting the borders and limiting travel early.
  3. His efforts to get manufacturing back in the US and out of China.

A long time UNC TV personality recently stated that this crisis could be the World War II for the younger generation.

How we handle this will be a defining moment in American History.

Let’s hope that we look back on it with pride.

Wells.
