Coronavirus - The Hidden Cases -
Why We Must Shut Everything Down And Do It Now

The powers that be in our
'western' societies have decided to do nothing
significant against the onslaught the novel
coronavirus SARS-Cov-2 is now causing.
There will not even be an attempt to do like
China or South Korea which have thrown all resources
at stopping the spread of the virus while it was
still possible. The 'west' now seem to be beyond
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
floated the idea to "take it on the chin" -
i.e. to do nothing to soften the blow the epidemic
will cause. Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany
told her parliamentary group that 60-70% of all
Germans will catch the virus. Most of them will fall
ill with the Covid-19 disease the virus causes. At a
1% death rate this means that more than 500.000
Germans will die from it. Merkel did not say how she
would try to prevent that. So far little was done by
her administration to stop a further public
spreading of the disease.
The Donald Trump administration has done its best
to prevent an early detection of the outbreak in
Washington State and likely also elsewhere:
As luck would have it, Dr. Chu had a way to
monitor the region. For months, as part of a
research project into the flu, she and a team of
researchers had been collecting nasal swabs from
residents experiencing symptoms throughout the
Puget Sound region.
To repurpose the tests for monitoring the
coronavirus, they would need the support of
state and federal officials. But nearly
everywhere Dr. Chu turned, officials repeatedly
rejected the idea, interviews and emails show,
even as weeks crawled by and outbreaks emerged
in countries outside of China, where the
By Feb. 25, Dr. Chu and her colleagues could
not bear to wait any longer. They began
performing coronavirus tests, without government
What came back confirmed their worst fear.
They quickly had a positive test from a local
teenager with no recent travel history. The
coronavirus had already established itself on
American soil without anybody realizing it.
The CDC and the FDA would not have that:
The message from the federal government was
blunt. “What they said on that phone call very
clearly was cease and desist to Helen Chu,” Dr.
Lindquist [the state epidemiologist in
Washington] remembered. “Stop testing.”
Our dear leaders are following the
four stage strategy (vid):
In stage one we say "Nothing is going to
Stage two we say something may be going to
happen but we should do nothing about it.
Stage three: We say maybe we should do something
about it but there is nothing we can do.
Stage four: We say maybe there was something
that could have been done but it is too late
Yascha Mounk follows
my argument and gives a
reasonable advice on what we can do to make this
as pandemic as survivable as possible. Shut
everything down that can be shut down. Increase
social distance as much as possible. Avoid all live
social contacts wherever possible. Do it NOW!
