CDC, America, add Chaos to SARS2 Pandemic

Is the CDC. incompetent or is it an incompetent communicator?

America’s record for COVID-19 active cases, is now 48% of all the active cases in the world. That is a reprehensible failure of public health and infection prevention of the US CDC.

In a stunning lie, CDC director Rochelle Walensky said yesterday that “Abundant scientific laboratory data, epidemiological investigations and large population level analysis demonstrate that masks now available to the general public are effective and are working.” The United States is the pandemic epicenter. Clearly Walensky’s claim is not a fact but an unmitigated lie. Nothing has worked. America has the highest number of infections in the world. It’s case fatality rate has been rising in the past three days, and it has nearly half the active COVID-19 cases on the planet. Something is very wrong, says a group of experts, a group of US governors and a group of American Mayors, all of whom are filing complaints with anyone who will listen.

A group of scientists and doctors, some who have previously worked as transition advisers to the current US President Biden, have come forward saying in response to the CDC recent guidelines that they are ‘not good enough’ in view of the recent spread of more transmissible and probably more lethal variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

NBC News says it has acquired a copy of a letter to the Biden Administration and says in a report two hours ago that, “In a letter sent late Tuesday to the administration’s top public health officials, the group said that current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on masks don’t go far enough and that all health care workers and those at high risk of getting infected should wear medical-grade N95 masks or similar respirators rather than standard surgical masks or cloth face coverings.”

“Stronger protective measures are needed immediately to limit exposure and transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to control and end the COVID-19 pandemic,” the group wrote. “Action is needed to better protect workers and the public against inhalation exposure to the virus.”

“The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has surpassed itself in its persistent flunking COVID-19 mitigation,” says a scientist in Kenya, previously studying and teaching  at the University of Nebraska.

America’s epic “screw-you” to the world, dumping all the human rights treaties it ever entered and leaving the WHO high and dry in a pandemic, is a head scratcher in the context of current failings of most of America’s so-called expertise which includes intelligence disasters, a failed pandemic response, conspiracy theories on weaponized virus being the naturally occuring pandemic source, and a complete saturation level usurping of its entire computer networking systems by Russia?.

America left the World Health Organization likely because it had a Black Ethiopian leader in the Trump White Supremacy-era; or in the alternative, because the WHO refused to blame China for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  America didn’t even pay its overdue fees from past participation.

Let’s face it, America’s collective conduct during the pandemic has been despicable. That’s what most experts are afraid to say publically, but in the private scrums…

The heartbreak of the American people is making the world cry.

An estimated 648,682 excess American deaths are likely due to COVID-19 and a gut-wrenching number, half a million boldly reported American pandemic deaths based on a rising Case Fatality Rate (CFR) at 1.8% indicates an ineffective mitigation plan and some very chaotic failures to get COVID-19 under control.

“Many of those deceased persons were beloved immigrant family members to communities all over the world,” says Sara Qin, a Chinese nurse speaking from Shenzhen, China, yesterday.

American blunders are not laughable, they are indicative of systemic problems. America just doesn’t seem to get it.

Telling the public to irradiate with UV-C low frequency ultraviolet radiation, the strong stuff that rarely gets through the Earth’s atmosphere, and drink disinfectant is maybe just more stupid ideas no worse or no better than the others.

This does not reflect well on the US Centers for Disease Control which exists in a country that has been politically inclined to blame China rather than protect its people. In recent days following another extensive visit to China by World Health Organization doctors and scientists, some officials have derided American intel and allegations against China as “rubbish”.


America is rapidly becoming PNG in Asia

Pushing China toward war in the South China Sea yesterday was the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet  destroyer USS Russell which America says was “asserting navigational rights and freedoms in the Spratly Islands, consistent with international law.”

China claims the Americans once again invaded their territorial waters.

Nobody is happy. Nobody seems to want war. And the five military bases that the Americans occupy on the Philippines Islands to engage China with missiles and electronic warfare, may get the ouster unless Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte gets his $19 billion USD the strongman president  is demanding from Washington in order that the yanks can stay and start their war with China, “which will likely end up killing 108 million Filipinos,” says a former Philippines Senator, unhappy with the whole affair.

“We don’t know if our President is really expecting $19 billion or if he is using this as his excuse to cancel the US/Philippines military agreements,” says the Senator.

Blaming China is not working because  it is BS and because women and their families are fed up with the bigotry, hypocrisy, jingoism and the lies that come from America. Not to mention the family members of every root nationality who have been killed by COVID-19 incompetence.

After failing infection mitigation, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now relies on massive numbers, 0.6 billion vaccinations, by summer 2021, meanwhile most of the world will not see any level of vaccination for another year or more.

There is another sore point. American Vaccine Nationalism.

Through a complex test, trace and treat programme, China has almost eliminated the virus and has mostly returned to normal life. That seems to the be the way ahead and will be useful in fighting the myriad of new pandemic viruses Bill Gates suggests we will face any time soon.

Gates said in his annual letter that, “This pandemic is bad, but a future pandemic could be 10 times more serious.”

China has been assisting many nations fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus with plane-loads of medical supplies, vaccines and test sets. So too has the Russian Federation.

The same is true of Taiwan, South Korea and New Zealand.

At least a dozen countries have reduced their active case count to zero. Over thirty countries, including all of mainland Southeast Asia where COVID-19 likely was present since around 2010 have reduced their case load to under 50.

Is this a distraction from America’s Epic COVID-19 Fail? Or just routine American Chaos?

The  CDC‘s dump on the European Union’s campaign to ditch the cloth rag masks and don medical grade N95 respirators is peculiar and surprising after US President Joe Biden’s appeal to Americans to wear N95s and his promise to use the Defense Production Act to bump up the manufacture of respirators and other PPE. Do they talk to each other?

Biden himself wears an N95 respirator strapped around the back and top of his head with a blue procedure mask over it.

The CDC‘s recent back and forth on mask wearing is right out of the brain dead zone. Encouraging people to wear no masks—the public doesn’t need one; double up on masks; don’t double up on masks; N95s are only good for doctors; everyone should wear an N95 mask; don’t wear an N95 mask.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, “N95 respirators should not be used because they should be conserved for healthcare personnel.” But if everyone wore an N95, healthcare workers could be out golfing because nobody would be sick from COVID-19 say some Harvard University Medical Center doctors.

The CDC‘s executives fear that either Americans are incompetent and cannot be trained to wear N95 masks, or that it will be so difficult for Americans to wear a properly fitted N-95 mask they will take them off. Surely there is a risk for overweight Americans climbing stairs while wearing a fit-tested N-95.

But the problem with the CDC‘s theory is increasing respiratory disease, pollution, the persistent burning of fossil fuels, the vast increase in airborne toxins, the proliferation of nasty viruses, and the damage to the atmosphere that climate change is causing.

“We can’t afford to be caught flat-footed again,” Bill Gates, who predicted this pandemic,  wrote in his annual letter. “To prevent the hardship of this last year from happening again, pandemic preparedness must be taken as seriously as we take the threat of war.”

The future attire of humans will include respirator masks.

People have been wearing respirators all over Asia where North America has been dumping its garbage, for two decades.

“Moms know that they and the kids must wear respirator masks to school and grandparents must wear their FFP  any time they go out. The whole family must wear a respirator mask and goggles to go to the store. Eyes and noses must be protected from penetration of any of the SARS-CoV-2 virus strains,” says Karinna Angeles from Luzon Island in the Philippines.

“We know children are able to wear respirator masks because we run a school wherein we require all children to wear N-95, FFP-2 or KN95  masks,” she continued. They are cheap and easy to get online from Alibaba.”

“They have no problems. I am a nurse most of the time and do a side job teaching health. Wearing an N-95 all day long is not difficult except when I am climbing up the steep mountain lane to the school. That’s when I must slow down or pause sometimes to catch my breathe. That’s what less-fit adults need to learn. But many seniors in my community who walk a lot have no problem. They go up the hill faster than I do. I tell the kids, ‘don’t touch your mask, just slow down or pause a moment if you need to catch your breathe’. It’s like walking up 30 flights of stairs, almost 400 meters, up,” she laughs.

“The kids just go running past me. I tell them that if they need more air, ‘stop and breath through the mask’ or take their time climbing stairs or hills. But I think it is only me who needs to follow that advise. I need to lose a few kilograms,”  she added with a chuckle.

Wear an N-95/FFP-2/KN-95 Filtering Face Piece (FFP) Respirator

It is contraindicated to wear anything over top of a FFP respirator but that is not the case with the spit-barrier surgical procedure mask.

Fit-test the respirator, adjusting as needed  and wear it when going out, say doctors like those at Harvard University.

Harvard Medical School practitioner Dr. Abraar Karan recently told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that if everyone used an N95 face mask, it would stop the pandemic in four weeks. Watch the video below.

“N95 masks are considered the gold standard in personal protective equipment because they block 95% of large and small particles utilizing a unique electrostatic filter,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a neurological surgeon and special consultant to the CNN news network.


So why are there not enough N95 masks in a year the US government is spending nearly a trillion dollars on missiles, nuclear bombs, space armaments, guns, bullets and other weapons?

Global demand continues to outpace production,” Nancy Foster told US National Public Radio. She is the vice president of quality and patient safety at the American Hospital Association.

Despite a slightly improving situation, she says that, “We are continuing to use conservation measures within hospitals to protect the supplies we have, to extend the wear of N95s designed for one-time use.”

“If you are in any way a vulnerable person 60 years of age or older, or if you are a person with any kind of chronic health care issue, like asthma, COPD, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis,  multiple sclerosis, diabetes, hypotensive or hypertensive heart disease, obesity, any kind of coronary disease or cardiovascular disease not mentioned, you must not leave home without wearing a properly fit tested, N95 mask,” is the advice of the World Health organization and many other groups.

The American Epicenter including ALL Territories has 17.51 % of global 'active' cases (2,876,764 USA (incl territories) / 16,429,329 Global), people infected with COVID-19 now.

Abundant proof that vaccines are working, an observation derived from unrelated data analysis.

As the epicenter we look at continental USA together with US territories and without. The significant decline in Case Fatality Rate (CFR) in the continental United States particularly, during 2 0 2 1, since vaccines became available, is believed to be due to vaccination rates and is abundant proof that the vaccines are working.

In order to avoid letting countries that refuse to report the sum of case recoveries, thus skewing global calculations, Burundi, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Britain, most provinces of Canada, Ecuador, FaeroeIslands, Falklands, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Mongolia, Laos, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, South Korea, Tunisia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Spain and Sweden 'recoveries' are estimated based on the current reported global recoveries as a percentage of all cases. (([reported recoveries]) divide (550,329,302 [Global Reported Sum of All Cases] less 29,905,095 [France Sum of Cases] less 901,739 [Ecuador Sum of Cases] less 12,734,038 [Spain Sum of Cases] less 8,171,396 [Netherlands Sum of Cases] less 2,515,769 [Sweden Sum of Cases] less 3,617,629 [Peru Sum of Cases])) = 96% a coefficient which is then adjusted according to the number of cases in the past 30 days and the new coefficient is applied to the sum of each of these nation's cumulative cases to estimate the missing recoveries data. In the case of France some additional hospital-sourced recovery data is factored.
