@IHME_UW (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) and @UWMedicine (University of Washington’s School of Medicine), no lightweights, have come out with
global projections of #COVID19 by nation.
Short summary 👇

healthdata.org/news-release/f…
They modelled 3 scenarios:
1. Worse case:
- mask usage stays at current rates, and,
- governments continue relaxing social distancing requirements.
This leads to 4.0 million total deaths by the end of the year.
Best case:
- mask usage is near-universal, and,
- governments impose social distancing requirements when their daily death rate exceeds 8 per million.
This leads to 2.0 million total deaths if by the end of the year.

Theologietreiben sei haarig geworden - 4 Gründe:
1. "die Krise des wiss. Publikationswesens"
2. "die Entwicklung neuer Kommunikationstechnologien"
3. "die #Globalisierung der theol. Wissenschaft"

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

Out today: Our new @TheLancet analysis of #ethics & #politics of #access to #testing #PPE & #Covid19 treatment. We must act now so to ensure that geopolitically powerful countries apply ethical standards & coordinate their procurement to access for #LMICs thelancet.com/journals/lance…
Many #African health systems lack capacity to respond if #COVID19 outbreaks get out of control. So #testing & #tracing are particularly vital.

Unfortunately, testing supplies are increasingly scarce, as #NorthAmerican & #European countries snap up everything on the market.
This mirrors failures in the #AIDS response—when testing & treatment came to #Africa years after it arrived in #US & #Europe, and long after the #pandemic had taken hold. This resulted in tens of millions of unnecessary deaths. @chidodc @DrWilfredoM @RenzoGuinto @paimadhu

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

SHORTAGE OF MEDICAL SUPPLIES DURING CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK; #IRGC PROFITING ON BLACK MARKET
IRGC hoards health masks and disinfectants amid Iran’s #COVID19 crisis.
#Coronavirus #CoronaOutbreak @WHO #pandemia
@UN @ForeignOffice @usadarfarsi @StateDept @SecPompeo @USUN
2⃣
Iran is suffering from a drastic shortage of medical supplies, like masks and disinfectants, because the regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (#IRGC) is stockpiling them and selling them to the public at a major mark up.
#Coronavirus #COVID19 @WHO #pandemia
@usadarfarsi
3⃣
State-run media reports that health masks priced at 2,000 rials are being sold for thirty times more in many places across #Iran. In some places, they now cost 150,000 rials. Yet still, people wait in long lines to pay big money for these essentials that are in short supply.

The Official *You Are Full of Shit when you say you're #antiZionist but not an #AntiSemite* Thread!

An antiSemite hates #Jews.
An antiZionist hates #Jewish Independence.
It's the same black ink in different concentrations!
An anti-Zionist is someone who believes that the Jewish state and ONLY the Jewish state is illegitimate.

Therefore ONLY Jews have no right to a Homeland or to national self-determination.
And that murdering Jews — and ONLY Jews — in terrorist attacks with the goal of eliminating the Jewish state is “resistance” and “freedom fighting”.

This is simply another way of saying they believe Jews should be killed and expelled, which OF COURSE is antiSemitism.

Going through the numbers released by @WHO (in turn are numbers released by China) from Jan 20th to Jan 27th.

Based on the released numbers, I did a simple analysis on the day-by-day increase in # of confirmed cases and # of dead owing to #coronavirus Image
The findings:(day2day)

1. The # of infected ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.49 ⬇️ to 1.4 *

2. The # of dead ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.68 ⬇️ to 1.6 *

3. The Death:Infected ratio is currently around 2.7 (# of deaths/100 infections)

* ⬇️ owing to conservative estimates + factors
Based on above trends:

1. The # of infected & the # of dead may reach a significant figure as early as Feb 6th *

2. The "Death:Infected Ratio" may ⬆️ sharply after Feb 2nd *

* Not posting my numbers here.

3. #nCoV is faster in it's infection rates compared to #SARS

#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

#Update #Nordstream2

The #German Government has condemned the #US sanctions against the construction of the controversial #NordStream2 pipeline as "interference". "The Federal Government rejects such extraterritorial sanctions," said Deputy Government Spokeswoman @UlrikeDemmer.
"They meet #German and #European companies and represent an interference in our internal affairs. The #US measures would in particular be based on the protection of #Ukraine.
In connection with this, it referred to the basic agreement reached on a new gas transit agreement between #Russia and #Ukraine, the #US sanctions against #NordStream2 are "particularly incomprehensible against this background,"

The #sanctions against the #BalticSea pipeline decided by the #US #Senate meet with resistance in #Moscow, criticism also came from #German Chancellor #Merkel. The #Kremlin still expects #NordStream2 to be completed.
Meanwhile, #Russia accuses the #UnitedStates of violating the law with pipeline sanctions.The punitive measures #violate international law and are an example of unfair competition, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskow. "Such actions do not please Moscow or the #European capitals;
they do not like #Berlin or #Paris," said Peskow. He accused the #US of violating #international law and "expanding its artificial dominance to the #European market". Chancellor Angela #Merkel has also criticized the #US Congress's sanction resolution.

Word on the street is the #FederalReserve is having unheard of overnight lending activities meant to curb the rise of short term rates which are likely skyrocketing due to some big companies cash concerns. Hmm, let’s get some nice Fed conspiracies rolling wsj.com/amp/articles/n…
The #FederalReserve is a system of centralized banks that fund the #UnitedStates loans from their own “reserves” w/ US citizen land & labor used as collateral. Most of these banks are held secret and difficult to trace back to to the originating bank. globalresearch.ca/the-federal-re…
A quick look at history and you can see the banking system is a large network of oil barons like the #Rockefellers, #RoyalCrown and various vassal agents of #European banking families like the #Rothschilds. These banks are used to control the economy completely protected.
