World Predictions: Coronavirus Update 3

Remember we are all in this together. Treat others as you would want to be treated. We need to help one another here and now. Let fear be a sound judge, then let the rest of that fear pass through you.

The new predictions:

Without the initial test you could never be prepared.. So many sick in the US all around the same time and you are not prepared.

The implication was this wave of sickness would strike “Here and now”.

However their “now” normally represents a week or two.

The death toll in China was grossly underestimated. Their lie enrages the rest of the world. As the deadly aspect of this virus was minimized and trivialized.
They implied the true number was twice it’s size.

They are robbing, robbing, robbing.. here and there, and over there. What a huge loss.

The implication was that the Coronavirus will be one epic opportunity for theft and cheating. I can only assume they are referring to the stimulus package from the US government.

That which is undefeated.. unsinkable.. will fall soon.
A message explaining the Titanic message. There are two previous Titanic messages: WORLD PREDICTIONS 3-16-20 PREDICTION: NEW ZEALAND EARTHQUAKE AROUND THE 12TH

Oh my.. the hurricanes are coming.. coming early. . Could there be a worse time.

I had a visual of an ax coming down on a timeline. “ 9..18.. your done.. over “

The entire set of previous messages, starting with the initial prediction about Corvid-19

WORLD PREDICTIONS 10-6-19 I had a visual of China, in the eastern coastal region semi close to Taiwan, that was marked. On the map was the number 2

“An epidemic is coming that will move with such fury.” Then it shifted to show people in tents coughing.

I had a visual of a map showing an area between France and Spain in the more northern region. Then the area turned red, the red are grew outward, getting larger and larger.

WORLD PREDICTIONS 11-19-19 “The two walls.” I had a visual of these massive metal doors/gates shutting.

WORLD PREDICTIONS 2-3-20 I had a visual of the map of the world. Spirit showed China, then small dots lit up the map. Then it shifted to show stage two, a map of Europe, several dots lit up. This makes it clear that the epidemic spreads wildly in Europe

Notes on 5-18-13
It’s starting.. Vietnam is closed.. walls and barriers..
I had a visual of a small bathroom with two doors next to each other on the right. The doors closed. Right of Vietnam is China, my guess is that Vietnam closes its borders to China. The bathroom could be a symbolic message of the reason, perhaps an epidemic

WORLD PREDICTIONS 9-19-19 I had a visual of both Europe and the US. “The economy will slide, down, down, down

WORLD PREDICTIONS 8-20-19 I had a visual of a red market arrow pointing down, down, down. 

Spirit is confirming an already existing prediction that the economy is going to have rough period. 

“As the new elections close.. the US spirals out of control .. things go down hill fast and furious on multiple fronts.”

The implication at the center of this spiral was economic in nature

WORLD PREDICTIONS: CORONAVIRUS UPDATE In approximately 90 days the fury of the virus dwindles, falls.. becomes flat. ”“The economy begins to plummet”. To add clarity. I am expecting the economy to be the next major issueThe economic plummet is expected soon and has ties to the Coronavirus. 
The 90 days is tied to the Coronavirus outbreak but a separate message.

We hold onto the prediction that talks about a 3 month span of time before the pandemic begins to fall flat or dwindle, That predicts a June timeframe. They also marked August as well. I will continue to ask for updates so I can keep everyone informed. 
The spirits recently said “Coronavirus.. leaks in.. White House “ I assume that means the president and those around him might catch the virus. They have also made mention of “your under attack” which I am assuming is unrelated to Coronavirus . Also Florida is expected to be hit with disarray in regards to the Coronavirus.

      All the real psychics concur with Mr. Eric.

      In the video Tracey said Trump will drag his feet to close the borders & put us on lockdown. She also said he should have done this months ago & someone else will force his hand.

      She said for 3 months after he declares the lockdown things will get worse before they get better. She is begging everyone to write ALL their elected officials to contact Trump to get the lockdown.

      She also said the states will see the federal government is useless & will do their own lockdown. I was told North Carolina is preparing to call up the National Guard.

      Italy has been hit with devastating contagion and death rates over the past month.
      Over 4,000 people dead of CV since 1st case on 21st February. Even more than China’s total.

        I could never understand why there isn’t a universal code or declaration stating what a Christian and a Christian Church should be – not be. I believe, in that code, should the signed declaration that a Christian Church must teach AT LEAST 70% of what Jesus taught. Pete

          I’m not sure if Jesus really is God’s son or not, but he was a man way ahead of his time–preaching mercy, love, forgiveness, peace, and kindness in a very brutal time period. I respect that.

          It sounds like that televangelist really needs to re-read Jesus’s teachings!

          1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

            Interesting message. When I was younger the spirits made corrections to so many misbeliefs on multiple religions. For instance they said “thou shall not kill” should actually read “thou shall not murder” . This preacher reflects their position about “not taking Gods name in vain” that this rule is not about saying bad words but the vanity of humanity, the desecration of the creators true message. Food for thought

              Eric that’s fascinating!!! I would love to hear more on this subject!! About Jesus and Christianity, the bible. What they have to say about the religions. Maybe a new Truth??

              1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

                I wasn’t planning to use this as a truth. The idea of telling people what they believe is wrong isn’t something I care to do.

              2. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

                Comment though… The major differences: the Bible presents a neutral role of the Roman Empire, Pilot washing his hands for instance, they said NO to that, they more than anyone else wanted him executed. The Bible was expected to be much larger. They took out parts that said the opposite of things, but According to Spirit that was by design to present to opposing opinions, Truths that push you towards the center. An example is one of the followers wrote how you need to look inward to find Jesus, while the more traditional focus is community and church. Fun fact, the part where god takes a bone out of Adam to make Eve is a mistranslation. He takes the “side” by that they meant the other side of the world or ground to create females. A representation of two different types of humans. That’s just some of the examples.

                  But there are two human-creation stories in Genesis. In one, God creates Eve from Adam’s “rib.” In the other, God creates both Adam and Eve at the same time.

                    Ed. I’m in Seminary. The reason there are 2 creation stories in Genesis is because each story comes from a different source.

                    I think we want complicated answers when it comes to faith/religion. I see that the simple answer is oftentimes the best answer.

                    Some things we will never know in this life. As the Bible says, the secret things belong to God.

          The code is in the Bible. Humans don’t agree on the interpretation. Some intentionally twist things. It all comes down to

          1) Love God with all your heart, soul, & mind.

          2) Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

        You hit the nail on the head. The sheeple are following Kenneth Copeland instead of Jesus Christ.

        Frauds like Copeland are the reason Christians are the butt of jokes.

She is Trump’s spiritual advisor. Her current husband is a member of the rock band Journey. Ewe Toob has juicy clips.

    My thought on the Titanic was the US. Could the US be the sinking ship? Or did you get the impression that it was an actual ship?

    1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      Now it’s sounding extremely symbolic.

        For what it’s worth, the Titanic sank on 4/15/1912.

        1. T W Longtime Lurker Avatar

          Thank you Ed!

          There’s a conspiracy theory that certain people allegedly orchestrated the Titanic’s destruction. Supposedly some people who didn’t want to create the Federal Reserve were on board & sank with the ship.

          Research who owns the World Bank…

      2. Ellie_R Avatar

        I was also thinking that when the titanic was sinking the poor class suffered the most. The limited boats allowed only the rich, women, and children to board, if I remember correctly. Maybe it could refer to the help offered to the rich and the stimulus package excluding the poor.

        1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          its an odd message, I have to assume it’s linked to the old prediction.

      3. Lynn Ryan Avatar

        Many times lately I’ve been making comparisons to the Titanic. How there aren’t enough ventilators. It’s like there aren’t enough life boats and the ship is sinking. That’s what it feels like to me. We are on the Titanic and the ship is sinking and nobody is coming to help. I feel like it symbolizes the world or country.

    Under Mitch McConnell’s direct payments plan, only 39% of people get the full amount.

    And 12% of households, including about 9 million at the bottom of the income scale, get nothing at all.

    As we wrote earlier today that would include ppl who had no “qualifying income” in 2018, including those living on SSI & adult dependents of others.

    The Tax Policy Center numbers also show that the people receiving partial payments are heavily concentrated in the $10-40k income range. A lot of low/moderate income workers and a lot of seniors

      If you are not a U.S. taxpayer, why should the U.S. government bail you out?:

      “Gonna reiterate that the big cruise ship companies, all actually based in Miami, locate their tax residence in Panama, Liberia, and the Bahamas and thereby avoid U.S. tax. It would be insane to bail them out without making them repatriate.”

      State of play on emergency aid/”bailouts” for big firms:
      – WH & GOP want $50B 4 airlines
      – They also want $150B for other hard hit industries
      – WH has said it wants to help hotels & cruises
      – Treasury would get authority to decide where the $150B goes

    Is it related to the coronavirus or to something else?

    It can’t be easy, dealing with all these predictions. Don’t forget to rest from time to time, or listen to relaxing music. Everyone needs to recharge after dealing with a lot of negative things, and the current situation is certainly one of them.

    Eric, can you and Spirit see anything after this crisis? china is already spinning this to their advantage while they are the root of this crisis. With all the economy’s weakened or destroyed by this pandemic, could a future under china’s economic dominance a reality? Or will countries take matters into their own hands and stop being so reliant on cheap labour?

    Thank you for all the work that you are doing and I hope you and your loved ones are healthy. This must be very distressing for you……..

    1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      Thank you. I don’t recall a major shift in the global economy except they predict Germany would eventually become the biggest powerhouse. Which I thought was different and interesting. China is expected to have civil discord with attacks from its own people in the west. But I will ask for the aftermath of this pandemic.

        Eric if I may be so bold to ask you if you could please ask Spirit about the wet markets in China and the horrible fate of animals there…..will china change it’s ways and close them down and implement animal welfare laws?

        I already saw a few video’s of regular chinese people criticizing the CCP and even one where people are demonstrating.

        I truly hope there will be some positive change after this crisis.

    Apparently, China lost 8 million mobile subscribers during January 2020 and February 2020 and the questions are “Why?” and “Where are they now?”

    If you read between the lines of her tweet, she’s hinting at China possibly having very high death rates.

    “U.S. intelligence reports from January and February warned about a likely pandemic”

    “Reports & warnings painted an early picture of a virus that showed characteristics of a globe pandemic that could require governments to take swift actions to contain it. But despite that constant flow of reporting, Trump continued to play down the threat the virus posed.

    “The surge in warnings coincided with a move by Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) to sell dozens of stocks worth between $628,033 and $1.72 million. As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Burr was privy to virtually all of the highly classified reporting on the coronavirus.

    “Azar – Sec. of Health & Human Services – couldn’t get through to Trump to speak with him about the virus until Jan. 18. When he reached Trump by phone, the president interjected to ask about vaping and when flavored vaping products would be back on the market, the senior administration officials said.”

      “By February, Grogan & others worried there weren’t enough tests. Other officials, including the deputy national security adviser, called for a more forceful response. But Trump continued to assure Americans the coronavirus would never run rampant as it had in other countries.”

    The death toll in China was grossly underestimated. Their lie enrages the rest of the world. As the deadly aspect of this virus was minimized and trivialized. .

    “Dr. Kadlec – Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services – said that to get ahead of the virus, Americans would need to take actions that could disrupt their lives.Trump’s insistence on the contrary seemed to rest in his relationship with China’s President Xi Jingping, whom Trump believed was providing him reliable information

    “Some of Trump’s advisers told him that Beijing was not providing accurate numbers of people who were infected or who had died, according to administration officials. Rather than press China to be more forthcoming, Trump publicly praised its response.

    “On 2/25, Nancy Messonnier, a CDC official, sounded significant alarm, when she told reporters the coronavirus was likely to spread within the U.S. & that disruptions to daily life could be ‘severe.’ Trump called Azar & complained that Messonnier was scaring the stock markets.”

    Italian Update ✔️

    Five more Italian doctors die battling coronavirus: Thirteen medics have now lost their lives, with 2,629 health workers infected – 8.3% of country’s total

    🔷Five new Italian doctors have died from coronavirus, taking the death toll among medics up to 13 people

    🔷Two of the doctors were in their 70s and had come out of retirement to help battle the deadly COVID-19

    🔷A health foundation released the figures last night and warned that protection for doctors were ‘inadequate’

    Eric,
    Spain 🇪🇸 Update ✔️
    Excerpt::
    Meanwhile, new figures released Saturday show that the number of coronavirus cases in Spain jumped 25 percent in 24 hours.

    The number of cases increased by almost 5,000 in one day and more than 300 people died from the virus in the same time frame. That brings the total number of cases in Spain to 24,926, with 1,612 people in intensive care and 1,326 deaths, the Spanish government said.

    Compared to Friday, the figures represent a 25 percent increase in the number of cases, a 40 percent increase in the number of people in intensive care and a 32 percent jump in the death toll.

    Summary of possible bipartisan stimulus package from the US gov’t that overwhelmingly favors corporate America/big business over the poor/working class:

    1. Here’s a list of what’s been floated, either publicly or privately, for the #CoronavirusCoup. I am told that Pelosi will take whatever McConnell negotiates in the Senate on the corporate side. $50 billion for airlines. $150 billion for anyone Mnuchin wants, likely Boeing.

    2. Speeding up of payments to defense contractors. Lifting of Other Transaction Authority caps for the Pentagon to shovel money to defense contractors without restrictions. Transdigm likes to use this one.

    3. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezo want “$5 billion in grants or loans to keep commercial space company employees on the job and launch facilities open.” They also want the IRS to give them cash for R&D tax credits.

    4. “The hotel industry wants $150 billion. The restaurant industry wants $145 billion. The National Association of Manufacturers wants $1.4 trillion. The International Council of Shopping Centers wants a guarantee of up to $1 trillion.”

    5. “Adidas is seeking support for a long-sought provision allowing people to use pretax money to pay for gym memberships and fitness equipment.”

    6. Big meatpackers want expedited visas for seasonal workers

    7. Here’s one GOP lobbyist. “Any time there is a crisis and Washington is in the middle of it is an opportunity for guys like me.”

    8. Importers are rushing to get rid of duties paid by those found guilty of dumping

    9. Beer industry wants $5B. Candy industry wants $500M. And on. And on. And on. There will be more.

    10. McConnell wants big business to rule. So he is refusing aid to normal people, and the Dems are negotiating with him to try to get unemployment assistance and social welfare. He knows Dems won’t pay attention to corporate bailouts if he takes the public hostage.

    11. Pelosi will cave on all of this, because the moderate Democrats want her to govern this way. “We have to do something!” they will say. The only hope is a bipartisan coalition of skeptics, people like @AOC and @MikeforWI coming together to say NO #corporatecoup.

    12. We have to support industry in a moment of crisis. But the key here is the conditions, and what is likely to happen by allowing Mnuchin to set the terms of all aid is a consolidation of power in the hands of a few. No more small business. America will be unrecognizable.

    I recall a florida hurricane destroyed a florida beach community. Hardly anything left. Most of the city consisted of mom and pop stores and small cottages and places where families could come to the beach. now…all gone. 20 years later only Big Boys owned businesses. condos rule. see…only the big boys have the deep pockets to rebuild!

    probably the same here with the virus. only the huge corporations have the money and resources. ever want to fly again? no little mom and pop airline company can fill the gap. do you want to buy your next car from “Joe’s garage” down the street? do you want only potatoes in season, in your grocery store?

    and yes, consolidation of power is the name of the game. this will happen. but consolidation and Misuse of power, are two different things.
    since I read that 60%-plus of souls in america are young souls, i can see how this works, as young souls are out to carve their initials on the tree of life and then cut that tree down and cut up the logs for to sell for firewood and thus make a handsome profit! little wonder Trump got elected. the Majority Spoke!!
    the older souls incarnated are *trying* to change things. but an uphill battle worldwide as most countries have even younger souls! only countries like sweden, norway, denmark, and other euro countries have a larger number of souls that are older.
    thus probably the average age of soul, in the world , is of this: the guy with the pickup truck with a shotgun on the rack and he is driving to the woods to hunt deer.

      The fact that Trump is even considering ending social distance, right when doctors are saying we need it, says a lot about his priorities. He doesn’t care how many people die, just as long as the economic numbers and the DOW make him look good to his supporters. He’s more concerned with how he looks and his reelection chances.

      Look at Hong Kong, they looked like they were doing well at first, but when they eased up on restrictions too early, they got a spike in cases. (They’re at about 340 now.) If Trump ignores what doctors are saying about social distancing, if he downplays it just to get people “back to work” quicker, he’s putting innocent lives at risk.

      Here’s an article about Hong Kong, and I just pray Trump doesn’t make the same mistakes. Taking shortcuts now will only make the virus spread worse.

    🔷PM said from tonight people should only go out for essential goods, medical needs, or brief exercise

    🔷Britons should only travel to and from work if it is ‘absolutely necessary’ and it cannot be done at home

    🔷He said shops selling non-essential goods are now being closed, along with playgrounds and churches

    🔷Police will have powers including fines to enforce the extraordinary measures being brought into place

    🔷Claims that there would be a ‘Cabinet mutiny’ if the Prime Minister did not move to enforce its restrictions

    🔷Michigan, Massachusetts, Indiana, Oregon and West Virginia all issued stay-at-home orders on Monday

    🔷There are now 15 states in the US that have issued stay-at-home orders to battle the spread of coronavirus

    🔷There are more than 41,000 people in the US with coronavirus and 576 have died from the disease

    🔷Experts say the peak will come in April and that the crisis could last ‘several’ months yet

    🔷Hospitals are scrambling to get ventilators and medical supplies before the wave of cases crests

    🔷President Trump has not issued a national stay-at-home order and he has not enacted the Defense Production Act yet to order businesses to produce the needed supplies
    Instead, he is trying to make deals with the private sector to allow them to volunteer services and goods without restricting them

    Hi Eric, I hope you stay well. I think I had this before it became an epidemic. My hubby and I were sick with all the symptoms. I had never been that sick in 25 years. Same symptoms as corona virus.. We both went to ER, they said not type A or B. Couldn’t really figure out what was wrong with us. Came down with it in Feb, end of Jan. . I think its been floating around for months. Is that a possibility? Very strange. Anyway, please stay well and safe. Bea too!

    1. swampy11 Avatar

      I agree with you, Donna. I have 3 friends that had the same symptoms (1 ended up in the hospital) back in November. They are still recovering to a certain degree. Doctors didn’t even imply COVID-19 when news came out about China “releasing it” in the middle of December. So, my experience gave me a different perspective.

      1. Donna B Avatar

        Yep Swampy. I went to a college town with a lot of international students. Never thought about it anyway, it was after winter break. They were coming back. After that I became incredibly sick. I had not been that sick for years and years. I{ had pluersy in my right lung. I couldn’t even lie on my right side, a headache like I was wearing a tight hat like a band around my head. Fever, extreme chills, I just sat in a recliner while I felt like I was literally being stabbed in my back! When I slept I could hear myself breathe and weeze. I did at least 4 bottles of mucenex while I was sick. I had an xray which showed something on my right side. I am still rather weak. But other than that nothing else. Just knocked me down. Went to hospital..not type A or B. No runny nose. A sore throat which felt like a band in my throat. I never get colds. Very healthy person. Walk, wrestle with dogs. Farm, so unlike me! Was sick for at least 3 weeks, at the end I went to ER, like 3 weeks seriously? About 4 days later it was gone! POOF, but it was very very different. So I think this has been circulating around for quite some time. I do agree. It a real mess.

        1. R2D2 Avatar

          I agree with you guys. Boy Donna you sound like you had it. If you didn’t have type A or B influenza then it had to be some viral type. You fit Covid-19 description almost perfect. High fever, sore throat pleurisy (lung inflammation), and headache. The only symptom missing is dry cough though. Hmmm…who knows but I know several people that were deathly ill between December-Jan. My step Mom was very ill for 2 weeks. Lost 10 lbs! Of course that could be Influenza A or B. She had trouble breathing. Makes you wonder how many had it but simply recovered without testing. Need to stay at home folks, can’t reiterate that message enough.

            Oh yeah had dry cough too,that is where mucinex came in, I felt like I was drowning in my lungs, it hurt to breathe and lungs were full. Downed bottle after bottle of mucenix couldnt sleep at all felt like there was a knife in my right side.

              Donna, you really had it bad and it sounds like you are lucky to still be around. I also wanted to share something I learned fairly recently about Mucinex. To think the mucus, something else that’s real helpful that way with less other ingredients with it AND is much cheaper (but tastes awful). It’s liquid guaifenesin (sp?). You get it behind the pharmacy counter and you don’t need a prescription for it. I use it for my allergies to thin the mucus. It costs $5 for a pint. Lasts awhile. Take care and thanks for your sharing.

      That is insane. No US leader should be implying that people should sacrifice their lives for the economy. Our first priority should be health, not the economy.

        Good example. As Trumps father taught him, I watched a documentary on his life “some people matter others don’t” Ok who is the decider? I think Trump needs to maybe view his own birth certificate. I think he is of the age that people get hit horribly hard. I wonder will he offer his ventilator to a younger person like the priest in Italy did? After all the show must go on, who is the decider, not the government. I have news for him, if the money is completely devalued and the “man behind the curtain” like the wizard of OZ is exposed. The only valuable thing will be human beings and other living things. The money will be like the toilet paper people are hoarding now. If it all comes to this. And we will have to value human and animal life much more than “Chase what matters” We may all have to figure out very soon what really matters and it wont be found at any bank.

      Despite efforts to keep Trump and family from benefiting, the $2 trillion package includes provisions that could potentially provide financial help. ⁦@EricLiptonNYT and ⁦@kenvogel comb through a bill where even the fine print has fine print.

    Here are my views on trump, as of this moment, people. Especially in the light of the Virus.
    —two today’s news articles…….
    ====================

    1….In coronavirus pandemic, Trump allies say they’re ready to die for the economy
    Christopher WilsonSenior Writer,Yahoo News•March 25, 2020

    Conservative supporters of President Trump are increasingly volunteering to risk death — and implicitly the deaths of elderly and at-risk Americans — from the coronavirus if it will help the economy.

    The push for Americans to get back to work in the face of an unprecedented economic downturn began last week but accelerated on Sunday evening, after the president began pushing the message that “we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself.” On Tuesday, Trump said he “would love to have the country opened up by Easter,” which falls on April 12. Public health experts say it is impossible to predict now when it will be safe to end social distancing measures but are virtually unanimous in believing they will be needed beyond then.

    [Texas’ Lieutenant Governor said Monday night that the U.S. should get back to work in the face of the global pandemic and that people over the age of 70, who the Centers for Disease Control says are at higher risk for the coronavirus, will “take care of ourselves.”

    Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick made the comments while appearing on FOX News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

    Patrick, 69, went on the program after President Donald Trump said earlier Monday that he wanted the country to get back to business in weeks, not months.

    “No one reached out to me, and said, as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren? And if that is the exchange, I am all in.” He also said, “Let’s get back to work. Let’s get back to living. Let’s be smart about it,” Patrick said. “And those of us who are 70 plus, we’ll take care of ourselves. But don’t sacrifice the country.”!]
    ===================

    2…America is living in two different worlds in dealing with coronavirus outbreak

    World 1: “We’re not slowing it, and it is accelerating on its own,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Tuesday. “One of the forecasters said to me, we were looking at a freight train coming across the country; we’re now looking at a bullet train, because the numbers are going up that quickly.”

    World 2: “I would love to have the country opened up and raring to go by Easter [April 12],” President Trump said yesterday in a Fox News interview. “Wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full?”
    ——–
    World 1: “Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) said Monday that he is closing the state’s K-12 schools for the remainder of the academic year,” per the Washington Post.

    World 2: “As the coronavirus threatens to spread across the Lynchburg (Va.) region, Liberty University officials are preparing to welcome back up to 5,000 students from spring break this week,” the local News & Advance writes.
    —-
    World 1: Whom Democrats trust for coronavirus information, per a CBS/YouGov poll: the CDC 87 percent, your governor 75 percent, the national media 72 percent, friends and family 72 percent, religious leaders 44 percent, President Trump 14 percent.

    World 2: Whom Republicans trust, according to the same poll: Trump 90 percent, the CDC 84 percent, friends and family 81 percent, religious leaders 71 percent, your governor 65 percent, the national media 13 percent.

    But we’re going to going to be blunt with you: This isn’t a normal policy debate, as NBC’s Benjy Sarlin points out.

    Scientists and health experts are all living in World 1; those who aren’t heeding the scientists and health experts are living in World 2.

    The stakes are high, and the effects will be felt soon. Choices our leaders are making right now could determine whether potentially hundreds of thousands of Americans or even millions might die in a short period and whether the country is plunged into a deep depression or a more manageable recession that goes away quickly once the threat passes.
    =================

    Freestone writes…..so what do I think today about trump?!

    Well…I have read, from spiritual sites like the Michael teachings, that Trump is a young soul. He is focusing, in a series of reincarnations, on how to become a leader. This one Trump life is an early one of the series!
    A young soul is the Doer, the person who explores power and material goods and lots of $$$$. He will carve his initials on the lower trunk of the Tree of Life, then cut the tree down above the initials, then cut up the trunk and branches for firewood then sell the wood for a handsome profit: then make a memorial to Himself, with that stump with his initials on it!
    My *real* question then is….why *now* did the Lord permit such a person to rule, in these times of great change and uncertainly where maybe a good leader might be really needed?!
    I think this: that he is here to really break up stuff! Kill the sacred cows to sell their meat. Bring in the bull into the china shop as he wants fragments of pottery to make a nice mosaic on the patio at his Palm Beach Golf and party house!
    He very well could open the country back up on Easter. He could do so over the pile of Pink Slips he is to hand out to the directors of the government medical people! “Agree with me or spend the rest of your life in a retirement campus in Florida”!

    I probably would find him disgusting if I talked with him for three minutes!

    I would pray, myself, for the best leader now for our country. My prayer is *NOT* who I would like, or even who might do the best job, I would pray for what this country NEEDS! For all that I know, this country might really need a total revolution! That every single institution be taken down.
    [like even the red cross, for instance!
    =============

    In Search Of The Red Cross’ $500 Million In Haiti Relief

    The Red Cross says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 people, but the number of permanent homes the charity has built is six.

    The charity’s own documents, however, give some insight: Much of the money never reached people in need.

    The Red Cross gave much of the money to other groups to do the hands-on work, resulting in additional fees.

    First the Red Cross took a customary administrative cut, then the charities that received the money took their own fees. And then, according to the Red Cross’ records, the charity took out an additional amount to pay for what it calls the “program costs incurred in managing” these third-party projects.

    In one of the programs reviewed by NPR and ProPublica, these costs ate up a third of the money that was supposed to help Haitians.

    To really understand what happened, take a look at one of the Red Cross’ marquee projects — a housing project. The housing sector received more than double the funds that other sectors received, and it’s the area in which the Red Cross made its biggest promises.

    Campeche and the surrounding neighborhoods are home to one of those projects. The town sits in a ravine in the hills of Port-au-Prince. People live inside shacks made of tarps and tin. There’s no running water. Trash and human waste piles up at the bottom of the hill.

    He explains in Creole that about three years ago the Red Cross came with glossy booklets saying it was going to build hundreds of new homes, a water and sanitation system and a health clinic.

    None of that happened.
    ================

    Freestone says…..there. An example of a “trusted” organization utterly failing!
    I read of SO many of these types of organization failures.

    Or the Big One: people who serve others, in this country, like nurses, teachers, cafe workers ; even firemen and police, why they get the very lowest pay in the country. The highest pay go to the Bling people, media stars, sports stars, top CEOs. The largest ego and less caring for others get it nearly all….

    So Trump is learning by Doing. Must be Important he do this, in the light of Spirit, as this risks ruining our country.

    I see now that trumps approval rating has greatly increased.
    I was inspired to look at the rating, currently, as someone in my senior home was telling me this. for many, Trump is next to God himself, in approval ratings. many many of these men are WW II vets, often fighting on the front line. no nonsense for these men! life is work and does who are not working are just lazy! the Great American conservative people!
    they see the liberals as having no shoes or even feet, no grounding what so ever. abstract pie in the sky people, the snowflakes and liberals, they sense.

    Trump *will* open up america again, i feel. over many dead bodies eventually.
    he will indeed Ask the Big Question: are a few more deaths of elderly, people about to die anyway, worth having us all go back to normal?

    as it is now, many restaurants, i read, cannot pay their monthly rent!
    of course, many small businesses and even large franchises, live month to month and if they do make money, it goes to the executives in pay raises.

    Wonder if the financial dealings regarding this virus will be the prediction of Trumps ultimate unraveling-stepdown? Keep thinking of Eric’s prediction. Paraphrasing…”from shady deals exchanging from one hand to another”? Could his companies and family ultimately get (indirectly) huge bailouts because of stimulus package? That would absolutely enrage the American public after so many people will have passed. Again-abuse of power while in office. Then again that’s been going on for years! You know…since this country was founded! Suppressing minorities. Stomp on the poor. Career politicians. You get the picture. Huge huge prayers out to those suffering.

    “”In interviews with the Los Angeles Times, eight people who were at the rehearsal said that nobody there was coughing or sneezing or appeared ill.
    Everybody came with their own sheet music and avoided direct physical contact. Some members helped set up or remove folding chairs. A few helped themselves to mandarins that had been put out on a table in back.
    Experts said the choir outbreak is consistent with a growing body of evidence that the virus can be transmitted through aerosols — particles smaller than 5 micrometers that can float in the air for minutes or longer.
    The World Health Organization has downplayed the possibility of transmission in aerosols, stressing that the virus is spread through much larger “respiratory droplets,” which are emitted when an infected person coughs or sneezes and quickly fall to a surface.
    But a study published March 17 in the New England Journal of Medicine found that when the virus was suspended in a mist under laboratory conditions it remained “viable and infectious” for three hours — though researchers have said that time period would probably be no more than a half-hour in real-world conditions.
    One of the authors of that study, Jamie Lloyd-Smith, a UCLA infectious disease researcher, said it’s possible that the forceful breathing action of singing dispersed viral particles in the church room that were widely inhaled.””
    “One could imagine that really trying to project your voice would also project more droplets and aerosols,” he said.
    With three-quarters of the choir members testing positive for the virus or showing symptoms of infection, the outbreak would be considered a “super-spreading event,” he said.
    Linsey Marr, an environmental engineer at Virginia Tech and an expert on airborne transmission of viruses, said some people happen to be especially good at exhaling fine material, producing 1,000 times more than others.
    Marr said that the choir outbreak should be seen as a powerful warning to the public.
    “This may help people realize that, hey, we really need to be careful,” she said.

    yeah! until you have your Vaccine, do NOT ever go in person to a sing or to a gym class! imagine doing cardio moves in a small room and people breathing heavily and then one of the moves is where everyone shifts positions! breathing other people’s air, yes?! I live in a senior campus where there are gym classes and I have been going to exercise class twice a week.
    one winter I had three or four colds in a row, only separated by a month or less. why….?
    I wash hands, avoid surfaces, even long before the Virus time. why did i get so many colds? I see now why! I will do *more* than rethink gym class. I, with my mild COPD, should never ever attend such a class ever again!

    ===================

    –from an English article from England……
    “”A family who became infected with coronavirus after attending the funeral of a COVID-19 victim have urged the public to take social distancing measures seriously after losing another relative to the disease.

    Sheila Brooks, 86, died in February and her extended family attended her funeral a fortnight ago, before stringent movement restrictions were put in place in Britain.

    Within days Mrs Brooks’ niece Susan Nelson, 65, who had no underlying health conditions, became ill and died of suspected COVID-19.

    Now 17 further family members all suspect they have the virus – including Susan’s husband and the couple’s daughter.””

    freestone says…….you read it: stay *away* from all gatherings! even funerals. the dead person is gone. maybe in three years from now after you have the vaccine, you can all get together to have a small family Remembrance service!

    this is getting serious. at Least I heard last night that Trump is saying that the easter “go back to work” idea will be pushed ahead to end of April.

    Presymptomatic spreaders

    A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that those infected with the novel coronavirus can spread it for one to three days before showing signs of the illness

    — such as a fever, cough or shortness of breath
    — hence making them “presymptomatic” spreaders.

    The findings further emphasize how infectious COVID-19 is and why containment measures may be difficult.

    Meteorologists keep eye on Atlantic Ocean storm churning off East Coast

    Excerpt

    Subtropical storm/ Hurricane ?

    “There is a chance the storm could be dubbed a subtropical storm at some point into the end of the week,” AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said, adding that if it develops it will likely start to show signs on Friday or by Saturday morning.

    A subtropical storm is a type of hybrid storm, showing both tropical and non-tropical characteristics, and can sometimes transition into a named tropical storm or hurricane. Subtropical and tropical systems are unusual but not unheard of outside of the official Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.

    “Congress assured America that its frenzied rush to deliver $2 trillion in coronavirus relief wouldn’t lead to waste, fraud or abuse because they packed the sprawling law with powerful safeguards.

    “Yet, as the Trump administration begins pumping billions of taxpayer dollars into the economy, none of the built-in oversight mechanisms are even close to functional. And their absence will soon be glaringly obvious as the gusher of cash and extraordinary new power granted to the administration fuels massive logjams, headaches and fear across overburdened hospitals, overcrowded unemployment offices and many sectors of the ailing economy.”

    Ten London jet-setters who defied Covid-19 lockdowns to take a private plane to the Cote d’Azur were ordered to return home by French police, news website BFM TV reported on Friday.

    The aircraft carrying seven men, in their 40s and 50s, and three women, aged between 24 and 27, ignored orders not to land at Marseilles airport, BFM TV said, citing a police official.

    Three helicopters hired to whisk the group from the airport to a rented villa in Cannes were sent packing by the authorities, according to BFM. Nine of the 10 passengers were forced to fly back to London without disembarking, the website reported. The other person hired a private plane at the French airport to fly him to Germany.
