All the SARS2 vaccine scenarios, “will require that the mitigation measures employed worldwide continue for a few years at least,” says a report in The Lancet medical journal, “We will not be returning to the old normal.”
COVID-19 will be around for years.
Proper mask wearing—N95 preferred—social distancing and hand hygiene is the strategic formula for stopping the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Nothing works as well. At least ninety-five percent effectiveness can be expected, say numerous experts including Dr. Robert Ray Redfield who is an American virologist and director of the USA Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as being the current administrator of the USA Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
“There is no down-side to wearing a mask. Talk about CO2 issues is hogwash,” say doctors working in a hospital in the mountains of Southeast Asia at over 5000 ft. altitude.
Medical practitioners have been wearing masks like N-99s and N-95s, for a century or more to protect themselves from infectious disease and protect patients from microorganisms in the practitioner’s own system.
According to the US NIH, “The facemask has been used in surgical settings for over a hundred years;2 first described in 1897, at its inception, it consisted merely of a single layer of gauze to cover the mouth,3 and its primary function was to protect the patient from contamination and surgical site infection. This practice was substantiated, at the time, by a recent discovery which demonstrated that bacteria could be disseminated from the nose and mouth during normal conversation as observed by bacterial colony growth on strategically placed agar plates in theatres. In the 1940s and 1950s, antibiotics and aseptic technique came to the forefront of infection control strategies within the surgical setting.” Citing NIH: “Evidence base behind the use of facemasks in surgery”
For diseases that initiate in the respiratory system, wearing a NIOSH-approved N95 mask is more effective than a vaccine.
COVID-19 does initiate in the respiratory system but in its course of infection it can damage or destroy organs like the lungs, heart, liver, kidneys, intestines, also the brain, and central nervous system.
Vaccines may produce disease risk reduction of only 50% and most vaccines will need to be renewed. Meanwhile SARS2 is about to start reinfecting previously ill patients as their antibodies wear off. So far reinfection may be killing 20%.
As previously reported by FPM.news, some asymptomatic and mildly infected patients are suspected to have been reinfected with the SARS2 virus. There are known serious cases which have been reinfected and the outcome has been terrible.
The potential for cyclical reinfections with a growing infection fatality rate is real. That would point to species extermination hence it would be better not to wait and find out but instead stop the virus by denying it any additional hosts.

One of the worries for Canada with an already high Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) is reinfection next year. SARS2 (2019) differs from SARS1 (2003) inasmuch as the antibodies produced as a response are short lived following a SARS2 infection.
Canadian sufferers of COVID-19 are enduring long term deleterious effects of the disease that are disabling.
This becomes a very serious comorbid condition to a reinfection of the disease. This is one more reason the pandemic must be stopped fast. The way to do that is to deny the virus another host.
“Heart conditions associated with COVID-19 include inflammation and damage to the heart muscle itself, known as myocarditis, or inflammation of the covering of the heart, known as pericarditis. These conditions can occur by themselves or in combination. Heart damage may be an important part of severe disease and death from COVID-19, especially in older people with underlying illness. Heart damage like this might also explain some frequently reported long-term symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, and heart palpitations [referring to younger patents].” Centers for Disease Control, USA
SARS-CoV-2: A Virus unlike any known before.
We Thought It Was Just a Respiratory Virus. We were wrong.
Now researchers at UC San Francisco and around the world have begun taking a closer look at this dizzying array of symptoms to get at the disease’s root causes. They are learning from people inside the hospital and out; people on the brink of death and only mildly sick; people newly exposed and recovered; people young and old, Black, brown, and white. And they are beginning to piece together the story of a virus unlike any known before.

Asymptomatic or mild-case patients are off the radar. They received only a small viral load and developed only partial immunity which dissipates quickly.
When these previously asymptomatic cases become reinfected after about five months when their antibodies have vanished, they are not statistically included as reinfected because they have not been seen by the health care system and are not known as previously infected.
“Levels of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, dropped dramatically over the first 3 months of infection in 34 people recovered from mild illness, University of California at Los Angeles researchers have found.
“Their research letter, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, said that antibody levels against the novel coronavirus decreased by about half every 73 days and, if that rate were sustained, would be depleted within about a year.”—CIDRAP – Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy,
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
Known cases of reinfection are alarming with an extremely high fatality rate. Outcomes are bad because COVID-19 is a dangerous underlying comorbid illness. Based on current antibody knowledge, the world is not going to notice reinfections until 2021.

“There is a potential for the virus to continue reinfecting surviving patients and killing a growing percentage of those patients. SARS-CoV-1 in 2003 produced long term effects that were serious and lasted two years,” suggests Dr. Anderson of The RINJ Foundation.
Several FPM.news staffers worked on the Canadian SARS1 (2003) response.
FPM.news has been reporting for months that scientists associated with the Civil Society Partners for COVID-19 Solidarity see COVID-19 itself as a multifaceted comorbid underlying illness to a second and even third reinfection of SARS2. There are multiple aspects to this.
Whereas the antibodies from an infection dissipate after about five months, serious side effects especially brain and neurological; including the autonomous nervous system, may last for as much as two years and more. This coupled with organ cell damage will increase the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) of “second-timers”.

Canada could be headed into very serious trouble
The health care infrastructure in Canada can only take so much abuse. What is ‘Heathcare Abuse? People taking enormous risks which are realized with a highly morbid infectious disease.
Canada’s death rate is very high.
Canada’s abnormally high death rate is not fully understood but it may be a statistical anomaly owing to the extremely high rate of fatalities among Ontario and Quebec senior citizens at the outset of the disease.
“In Quebec, the sequence of the disease that is spreading matches one rooted in initial highly-contagious infections in Europe and later, New York. The “G” sequence is extremely contagious and mask wearing is a must for community spread mitigation,” says Fred Harris, a biostatistician leading the Civil Society Partners for COVID-19 Solidarity.

A minimum of 95% mask wearing is needed to stop the spread.
Is Canada about to join the global list of total screw-up nations, like The United States of America, with runaway SARS2 infections?
A minimum of 95% mask wearing is needed to stop the spread. British Survey of multiple countries reports the percentage of persons who say they wear masks in public places. In Germany two thirds say they are wearing face masks (66%), as are 74% of Americans, 83% of French people, 84% of Italians and 88% of Spaniards.

There is a new scary imperative that points to mask wearing as an urgent requirement.
It is somewhat possible the virus could be stopped entirely by communities that adopt a 98% mask-wearing adherence.
Here are some countries where the population has abided mitigation tactics.
Known reinfections of COVID-19 indicate a possible pattern of cyclical community spread of SARS2 among the previously asymptomatic infected population, as warned of in previous articles by the biostatisticians on the Civil Society COVID-19 Solidarity Team.

Protect your own respiratory system AND that of those persons around you with an N95 mask. Wearing a medical mask does not take one away from a frontliner it keeps you off their dying patient list and reduces their risk.
The picture and its story:
“COVID-19 is a respiratory system initiated illness hence people must protect their respiratory system,” explains nurse practitioner.
“Wear a NIOSH N95 mask outside your home & near anyone in your home who has symptoms or who is quarantined,” says Michele Francis, a Canadian RINJ Foundation Director and nurse practitioner running three clinics and a hospital in Venezuela.
“This is true for all humans without exception. Learn to fit check & wear these masks below. Take the video course. It’s your future,” adds South East Asia RINJ Director Sharon Santiago.
“If an N95 mask is not available, wear a mask made of three layers of unique-weave cloth material,” she adds.
Logistically, three masks are needed for each person.
To clean your N95 mask during 48-to-72-hour non-wearing intervals, leave it in a sunny place to dry. Do not try any other methods unless you are a pro and really know what you are doing.
Take this brief course on wearing an N95
According to Canada’s Government: “COVID-19 most commonly spreads from an infected person to another person through the following. “Close contact: Breathing in someone’s respiratory droplets after they cough, sneeze, laugh or sing. “Contaminated surfaces: Touching something with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands. “Common greetings: Handshakes, hugs or kisses.”

Wear a face shield or plastic goggles in addition to a mask. In some countries this is mandatory.
FPMag reports: “Wear a face shield” to minimize risk in stores and areas where you can anticipate a crowd. In many countries now, this is mandatory. It works to protect the wearer and the people around the wearer. It also extends the life of reused masks. Do not touch the surface of the shield at any time. This type shown with a foam barrier at the forehead is best because it blocks a throughput of air from top to bottom.
