1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

Awake, arise or be forever fallen.
 
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
  John Milton, Paradise Lost
 
We all agree that Trump’s GOP and MAGA faithful are swooning in some ‘mass hysteria’.
It is growing in velocity, to our collective peril. We’ve seen it before: Germany, Cambodia, Rwanda. We know it travels quickly. We know it feeds on lies and laughs at suffering.
We know it leads to genocide, if unchecked. I know it intimately, but I know it as Mobbing Syndrome.
I was a Bystander and Target in a Workplace Mobbing. I was rapidly injured by it, just by being near it; by being unable to stop it.

In only 8 weeks, I had hypertensive crises and rollicking PTSD. It nearly killed me. Mobbing Syndrome is an incubator for suicide. Worse.

Yesterday, after a long discussion with a close family member who is a US MD phd, we agreed that with world's best #contagion models (% masks & social interaction) available in world today, the covid take-off could at best have been predicted 7 to 10 days before it exploded...2/
2/covid #Covid Pragmatic suggestion is to ban all #Social gatherings of > 7-10 people (indoors & outdoors), till curve turns down, but don't stop economic activity (w cumplusory masking, distancing). Once curve flattens, outdoor gathering restrictions can be eased with masking
3/covid Cities/towns/urban,/semi urban; rural markets/melas areas are where there is the greatest interaction between people (mobility & personal interaction are the key parameters in these virus spread models)

Le saviez-vous ?#LeSaviezVousCOVID
Le nez dans le guidon,depuis bientôt 1 an le corps médical avance dans cette pandémie en tentant d’informer nos patients et nos proches
Alors qu’ont-ils compris?
Hier soir mon père 77,9 ans fraîchement vacciné m’a donné sa version #Thread ⤵️
1️⃣APRES 2 doses de vaccin Pfizer (en date du 6 février 2021) attendre au moins 7 jours après l’injection
#vaccinationCovid
2️⃣Le vaccin a une efficacité dans 95%, pour les formes symptomatiques (et plus pour les formes graves / mortelles) ce qui veut dire que 5% des personnes (soit 1 sur 20) ne seront pas protégées

A word about the movie #Contagion: I thought it was fantastic when it came out. It’s even better (and scarier) now that I've rewatched it during a #pandemic like the one it portrays. Fortunately ours isn't as deadly; the fake disease had a 25% mortality rate. /1
The makers of #Contagion consulted with scientists, the #WHO, and Dr. #SanjayGupta to ensure it was an accurate representation of a #pandemic and best practices. In other words, this #Hollywood movie crew was better informed than our current #WhiteHouse. /2
#Contagion accurately portrayed how a #pandemic is downplayed at 1st, symptomatic patients roam in public as experts try to sound the alarms, and countries argue over where it began. Empty storefronts, food shortages, #masks. But even #Hollywood couldn't imagine mask backlash. /3

an old saw from Mike Parson’s campaign:
random rural yard signs to
applaud Mike’s designs to
continue his post-Greitens reign.
In this specimen Parson would take in
uninformed voters in County Macon. 1/2 🔥 #mogov 🗳️

as school districts may soon sink, not swim
in each piteous scene
of a mass quarantine as
new cases exceed counties’ brim.
Yet the venue’s the same:
still in Macon. Why no
mask mandate? Parson’s mistaken.

National Guard, unlike Mike,
at this moment works hard
citizens to protect.
Parson’s lies we reject,
evidenced by his COVID scorecard.
Folks still ask: why no #MaskUp
mandate? Parson’s post outweighs
the #ShowMe State.

J’ai revu #Contagion et j’ai été soufflé par cet extrait. Tout y est : Twitter, complotisme, bigpharma et même un équivalent de l'hydroxychloroquine.
Sans parler du social distancing.
Et ce passage avec Marion Cotillard :
-MC/Who says ?
-The internet
-MC/And you believe it ?
Judicieux scepticisme qu’elle a visiblement oublié avec le 11 septembre.

Die Analyse von #AttilaHildmann's Interview beim Realtalk Podcast ist unmöglich.

Die Bullshit-Dichte ist einfach zu heftig. Man muss ja fast jeden Satz einzeln debunken.

Hier unser bisheriger Favorit (neben dem Guidestone Pyramiden Vergleich).
Hier geht es um den Film "#Contagion" aus dem Jahr 2011, der ziemlich realistisch die Auswirkungen eines Virusausbruchs darstellt.

Regisseur ist #StevenSoderbergh.
"Krass ist halt das der Regisseur einfach mal abgeballert wurde bevor der Film zu Ende gestellt wurde. Seine Frau, seine 5 jährige Tochter und er sind angeblich per Suizid gestorben. Man hat nie die Leichen gefunden."

My article on Al Jazeera @AJEnglish about the Indian film I feel the world should be watching during the #COVID19 pandemic 👉🏽 "#Virus: A lesson from Mollywood on how to tackle #coronavirus?"

aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…
Everyone's been talking about the Hollywood film #Contagion since the #CoronavirusPandemic began. Contagion is about what not do during a crisis, but #Virus - on #Kerala's Nipah virus outbreak - offers a blueprint on what TO DO to effectively stem the spread of #COVID19
FYI #AashiqAbu's #Virus is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.

#Lockdown is critical for slowing the spread of #COVID19, and India has displayed firm resolve in enforcing it.

Massive labour churn; CMIE Data indicates that 120 million people have lost their jobs. We will need strong Govt action to revive the Economy.

We're already in a Global #Recession, the kind of which hasn't been seen in a century. It could get a lot worse, and we need to be prepared. #ViciousCycle 🔁 : Businesses shuttered, Labour furloughed, Expenditure cut and Demand destroyed. @MD_Nalapat

The #lockdown and media-fuelled fear have completely brought the economy to a grinding halt. At some stage, #starvation may overtake #COVID19 as the leading cause of death. States like Punjab are finding innovative ways to balance health & economics.

With the #COVID19 outbreak, it is important to use language responsibly. Here is the first entry of our new #ContagiousWords series, defining the buzzwords and terminology dominating today's conversation. #Pandemic #PandemicsCost
@ilariacapua Language is powerful, so we must be sure and accurate in the ways we communicate science. #Epidemic #ContagiousWords #COVID19
