Coronavirus Chronicles with Christopher Jon Bjerknes Day 20
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that in populations where many people wear masks in public the rate of the spread of the Coronvirus is substantially lower than in countries where the government, press and social pressure discourage the wearing of masks by the general public. In Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong the curve has been markedly flatter most likely because they tend to all wear masks. The bad news is that the American government, media and alternative media have discouraged the wearing of masks and the American government still refuses to encourage the production of masks to be distributed to the general public.
The laws of physics are universal and in this case very simple. If you place a barrier which blocks transmission of the virus from an infected person to non-infected person you can stop the spread of the disease. Two people each wearing masks creates a relatively effective barrier between them. Testing everyone and quarantining those who are infected creates a very effective barrier between the contagious and the completely healthy. Barring travel from places where there are large numbers of infected persons to regions nearly devoid of infected persons creates the necessary barrier to prevent exponential growth in infections. These are the approaches we need to take to reach a point where we can engage in normal economic activity. But the American government is not doing any of these things.
I wonder about what will happen when large numbers of these confirmed cases and the as yet untested cases start to fill our hospitals that do not have adequate personal protective equipment, including enough breathing masks, face shields, etc. Doctors, nurses, janitors, previously uninfected patients and others will start to bring the disease home, to grocery stores, and throughout the community. This could become fodder for a second and even larger wave of infections that are prone to mutations in a hospital environment, even though this coming spread is largely preventable.
I hope it is true that the curve has been curbed somewhat by changes in our common behavior, and it ought to be true. What do we do now to keep it from starting all over again if we do not have masks and gloves and begin to circulate again? I just do not understand why we are not massively increasing production of masks and gloves to be distributed to the general public. It only took a short time to reach 67k confirmed cases in the US from less than 200. Even a small number of infected people can cause a massive outbreak in the same short time if we get reckless.
What concerns me as much or even more than the Coronavirus is the vulnerability it creates if something else bad happens. That is why I hope we preserve a healthy majority to deal with whatever else might be in the works or otherwise occur, including an attack on our food supply, a war, civil unrest or who knows what else.
You can't make the virus go away and you can't keep the economy in good shape by throwing money at the problems without creating the logistical and practical plans needed to put the monies to proper use. There are physical laws in play that are well understood and can work to our advantage. We need barriers between healthy people and infected people. We need the supplies to treat the sick. We need masks and gloves and for the general public to wear them at all times when venturing out from home.
I do not think printing more dollars will kill the FED or create hyperinflation in the near term, because there is such an international demand for dollars. But it will increase the national debt and give the FED far more power and leverage than it already has over our government and our nation. I do think that other central banks will fail soon and other nations will experience hyperinflation in the near term. What is more likely to severally damage America is the destruction of the economy and the potential for civil unrest and foreign invasion. If they attack the food supply, we are done. So I think we are not paying enough attention to how we will manage to sustain the economy and defend ourselves if new threats emerge. We can only do this by maintaining a large healthy majority.
The FED is entirely out of control. It is a privately held enterprise without elected officials and is coming to own an increasingly large share of our national wealth and debt. There is no need for a private bank to issue our currency or to do so for profit by creating debt. The government should immediately take over the function of creating our money supply without creating debt and the FED should be immediately disbanded and charged with running a fraudulent business and waging war on the nation. If ever there was Trojan Horse, it is the Federal Reserve Bank. With its increasing ownership of our nation and the growing debt we must ask when the FED and the bankers who own it are going to foreclose on the nation? Their control over our country is.
