I had a chance to go to this @VSOrchestra Orpheum Theatre built after the Spanish Flu to be *pandemic proof* and WOW. This ventilating system is FULLY OPERATIONAL. Huge crowd 1/n
@VSOrchestra And under the seats there were these mushroom shaped objects...Fresh air from pipes provided a very gentle stream of air & note these air intakes were protected by the mushroom design. the stem emitted air, the umbrella part protected it 2/n
@VSOrchestra The air rose above the seats to the porous false ceiling above to vent all that air out! This was built in 1927 & it has better ventilation than most modern buildings #PandemicProof architecture 3/n

20 years ago, #POTUS was the leader of the free world.

Today, @POTUS is leading the nationalization of a free country.

A history🧵on how we got here..
It didn't start with #September11. Federal interventionism and expansionism began much earlier.

We dove into global conflicts in 1898, when we took Cuba, PR, Guam, and Philippines from the Spanish in a short war that began suspiciously.
Two hawkish POTUS later, #WoodrowWilson (a passive academic) established the #FederalReserve and income tax in 1913 (FTC in 1914), entered WWI and created a propaganda office in 1917, raised taxes in 1918, and formed what became the @UN in 1920.

Federal powers greatly expanded.

1) #COVID19 outbreak in Sydney's #NorthernBeaches is such bollocks. Fact Brad "Health" Hazzard linked it to dude in band called Nothing Too Serious is giveaway. They're taking the piss. It's like when builder tells newbie to go to hardware shop for a "long weight".
2) Clowns running ill-health system want us to believe bug erased across Oz after early Nov. "Well done Aussies. You smashed it." Remember that crap? Yet Kerry Chant herself (and other "experts") said early on they thought maybe 20% infected already. reddit.com/r/CoronavirusD…
3) So, according to her "analysis" horse bolted long ago. They keep muttering gravely about outbreaks, hot spots, super-spreaders. What a load of bollocks. Only way to accurately claim outbreak is if you had *reliable* test used on *entire* population *regularly*. #COVIDNSW

1) I think this is #DictatorDan's actual testimony. Still weird as, but. He looks skinnier, paler, way younger. And his hands look large in comparison to his body. I suspect tech heads could explain weirdness as result of Skype or similar software with low resolution.
2) But it's not remotely batshit to wonder what is going on here. Look at insane stuff going in #Victoria lately. To say it seems surreal (zif dystopian satire) is yuge understatement. Also, many #MSM glitches involving pollies esp those linked to Cabal, Dems (as Dan is).
3) Check out this "glitch in the matrix" featuring #HillaryClinton.

The pandemic of 1918-19 – commonly known as the #SpanishFlu – infected perhaps a third of the world’s population; many researchers, including economists, are looking back to that experience for insights into the spread of #Covid19 & potential responses coronavirusandtheeconomy.com/question/does-… Image

#WWI fostered influenza in the crowded conditions of military camps in the U.S. & in the trenches of the Western Front in Europe.
The virus traveled with military personnel from camp to camp and across the Atlantic.

#SpanishFlu #COVID19 #SARSCoV2
The 1918 #H1N1 influenza pandemic caused 500,000-700,000 deaths in the U.S.— almost 200,000 of them in Oct. 1918 alone— & an estimated 30-40 million deaths worldwide, mostly among people aged 15-35 years.
World-wide transporting of #WW1 military troops was the reason.
#SpanishFlu
The 1918 influenza pandemic was caused by an #H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. It was first identified in U.S. military personnel in spring 1918.
500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus.

@MarinaAbramovlc with #JacobRothschild in front of a very special picture called "Satan summoning his Legions". #QanonArmy says, that the #DeepState is in #PanicInDC.
#JacobRothschild is father of @NatRothschild1. Do you remember the connections? Nat knows #RachelChandler aswell as #GhislaineMaxwell.
#JacobRothschild together with #EvelyneRothschild and #LynnForesterRothschild.
Lynn is the spouse of #Epstein listee Evelyn. Together with Archpaedophile #JimmySavile, #FfionHague and @TheDukeOfYork, Lynn was on the board of Outward Bound where indescribable abuse took place.

A story about a pandemic.
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. In the summer of 2005, these immortal words of Neil Armstrong was emailed by Dr Terrence Tumpey to his colleagues.
Working alone in a high security laboratory with biometric fingerprint, iris scan for his eyes alone, he had been the first man to resurrect an old demon – the 1918 Spanish Flu virus. #SpanishFlu
The Spanish Flu (or 1918 H1N1 flu to be politically/scientifically correct) killed 50 million people in the world. About 18 million in India alone. Unlike #COVID19 the virus killed maximally in 15-34 years age range.

My mother, an MD in her 90s who saw some of the last polio cases in #Canada as an intern in the 50s, notes that many compare #COVID19 to #SpanishFlu but not to polio epidemics before/after WW2, eg she remembers a lockdown in ’37. I googled and found this:
cpha.ca/story-polio
Ofc, it is because #COVID19 is a flu-like infection, but other relevant similarities. Also very infectious, most #polio cases were minor gastrointestinal illness, whereas minority more serious. Higher CFR, e.g. peak in ’53 in Canada had 9000 cases and 500 deaths, CFR = 5.6%. 2/3
And then there was the devastating paralysis, eg "estimated 11,000 people in Canada were left paralyzed by polio between 1949 and 1954… The last major polio epidemic in Canada occurred in 1959, with nearly 2,000 paralytic cases.” 3/3

History repeats! Here’s how some cities ‘flattened the curve-controlled the spread’ during the 1918 flu pandemic. #SpanishFlu
Philadelphia detected its first case of a deadly, fast-spreading strain of influenza on September 17, 1918.
Yet 10 days later—despite the prospect of an epidemic at its doorstep—the city hosted a parade that 200,000 people attended, that spread the virus like wildfire.

How do major pandemics affect economic activity in the longer term? My colleagues (Òscar Jordà, Alan Taylor) and I have a new working paper where we answer this question.

#coronavirus #COVID19 #CoronavirusPandemic #BlackDeath #SpanishFlu #SecularStagnation #NaturalRate

1/5
Findings consistent with what economic theory prescribes? Yes. Real returns down, real wages up….

Paper here: ssingh.ucdavis.edu/uploads/1/2/3/…

2/5
We study rates of return on assets using a dataset stretching back to the 14th century, focusing on 12 major pandemic episodes where more than 100,000 people died. We estimate the impulse response of the European real natural rate to a pandemic episode up to 40 years out

Why calling it the "Chinese Virus" is, in fact, racist. A quick thread:

MERS: Literally called Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. Started in Jordan. Not called "Jordan Virus."

1/
SARS: Started in China. Not called "China Virus." Probably, in part, because it might be confused with another virus sure to eventually originate from the same country of ~ 1.4 billion people.

2/
Ebola: Comes from Africa. Sub-labeled by country/region of origin. Ebola-Zaire, for example. Not called "Zaire Virus."

Swine Flu: Originated in U.S. according to CDC. Not called "America Flu." (But the name is pretty close, if we're being honest.)

China culled around 18,000 chickens in Shaoyang city in the southern province of Hunan as a result of a flu outbreak. Rumours in India started circulating, that broiler chicken has been infected with Coronavirus and people should avoid consuming it.

This is a MUST SEE video on the #Coronavirus in Italy. The #ICU intensivist explains the epidemic and treatment- Report From The Front Lines @JAMA_current - YouTube #Covid_19 #COVIDー19 #COVID
This is a good summary but somewhat inconsistent to what we have been hearing on #twitter about #italy. The question about triaging those sick and above 60 yo was NOT answered directly. He said the goal was for everyone to get an ICU bed but was that successful? 1/
There are many pictures of hazmat suits which is somewhat different and more aggressive than the reports we have been hearing about #coronavirus in Lombardy 2/

While my instinctive reaction to #Covid_19 is to #shutdown everything, it's worth bearing in mind the government will have evaluated this option. So why not do it? Instead there is talk of "herd immunity" and "taking it on the chin" 1/n
My suspicion is that the government is thinking about the viruses evolution and the possibility of a 'second wave'. This is not unreasonable as we do know that the #coronavirus is mutating (albeit we don't know if this is functional): 2/n
With #SpanishFlu of 1918 it is been hypothesised that the second wave was worse for young people because of the selective pressures of the trenches: "the severely ill were sent on crowded trains to crowded field hospitals, spreading the deadlier virus" shorturl.at/kmMPQ 3/n

Presscon @KemenkesRI sore ini tidak menjawab:

Mengapa pasien yg menurut Info Depkes baru masuk Bali 4 hari, artinya sdh terkena Corona, koq di Bandara bisa diterima masuk? Bagaimana protokol pemeriksaan WNA di bandara dijalankan efektif?
Kmatian krn #Covid19 di semua ngr mayoritas mnimpa pasien usia lanjut, yg umumnya sdh pny pnyakit lain. Krn itu BUKAN pnyakit lain pasien yg jd fokus presscon @KemenkesRI utk tenangkan masy, tp sjauh mana protokoler pncegahn efektif di daerah2, terutama kedatangan WNA di bandara.
Berulang2 mjelaskn kematian pasien no.25 krn pny pnyakit lain sm spt jelaskn org diabet mati kena serangan jantung. Shrsnnya logika dibalik, @KemenkesRI justru smpaikan bhw corona sgt bbahaya bg org usia lanjut, lbh beresiko kematian. Krn itu mrk djadikn prioritas dlm pencegahan.

La aparición del #SARSCoV2 ha puesto de nuevo de actualidad pasadas pandemias de #gripe

Os hablaremos en un breve hilo de dos de ellas.

La Gripe Rusa de 1889-1890 y la Gripe Española de 1918-1920 y sus efectos en #Madrid y #España
#SARSCoV2 #influenza1889 #Russianflu

La #Gripe Rusa, pandemia ocurrida durante el invierno de 1889-1890, fue una de las más importantes del siglo XIX y es considerada la primera pandemia de gripe en un mundo interconectado.
Evolución mensual de la #pandemia de gripe de 1889-1890
#SARSCoV2 #influenza1889 #Russianflu

La gripe de 1889-90 se propagó por toda Europa en tan solo seis semanas y por todo el globo en seis meses algunas teorías apuntan a la influencia en su propagación de la amplia red de transporte ferroviario y marítimo existente en el momento.

A dog in #HongKong tested positive for the #COVID19 virus.
As a precaution, the government declared cats & dogs whose owners test positive would be collected & delivered to a “designated animal keeping facility for quarantine & veterinary surveillance.

Hong Kong declared cats & dogs whose owners test positive for #COVID19 would be collected & delivered to a “designated animal keeping” facility.
CDC suggests restricting contact with pets if the owner is infected, including “petting, snuggling, being kissed, & sharing food.”
If you get the flu, do what people have done throughout history. Avoid being around others, except for your pets, & don’t allow anyone around you who has authority to haul you off to a pathogen-infested concentration camp.
You’ll get well sooner.
