How long is this COVID situation going to last? And the government-ordered shutdown of businesses and job-losses?
Those “public servants,” ordering the people to close down and stay at home, are causing an economic collapse and devastation all over the country. All the increased impoverishment, despair, and now hunger with long lines at the food banks, will cause many more illnesses and deaths than whatever number of COVID-19 deaths that may have been prevented!
And the media are shameful in their fear-mongering right along with the “public servants” causing such panic and destruction. I was talking to my 86-year-old mother on the phone yesterday and she’s definitely affected by what I consider to be non-stop propaganda on the television. I think she watches too much TV but don’t tell I said that.
The undue panic that government bureaucrats and media have been causing will cause a mental health crisis as well as an economic crisis, if this goes on any longer.
I saw some good recent articles that people should read with more clear information on the COVID panic, including The 5 dubious pillars of the Covid-19 panic narrative on Medium, and Things about COVID-19 that make you go, “Hmmm” on Target Liberty.
So first I have some questions about the manufacturers such as the fashion and apparel companies now making face masks, and Ford, GM and Airbus now making ventilators, which those companies are not used to making.
Will the makers of the face masks be putting the masks through some kind of final inspections to guarantee they are free of contaminants or viruses? And as I saw mentioned on another blog, what exactly are the masks treated with, some kind of chemical decontamination process? That people might be directly breathing in?
And by the way, this article on GreenMedInfo tells us that wearing those face masks might not actually protect you from viruses, and may even be counterproductive. And that’s according to the World Health Organization! So government “public servants” really shouldn’t be making them mandatory!
And the ventilators? Will they be inspected before being sent to the hospitals? (I assume the ones in use now are already inspected!) Will these new ones be checked for possible bacteria?
One of the most serious and common risks of being on a ventilator is pneumonia. The breathing tube that’s put in your airway can allow bacteria to enter your lungs. As a result, you may develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).
The breathing tube also makes it hard for you to cough. Coughing helps clear your airways of lung irritants that can cause infections.
VAP is a major concern for people using ventilators because they’re often already very sick. Pneumonia may make it harder to treat their other disease or condition.
VAP is treated with antibiotics. You may need special antibiotics if the VAP is caused by bacteria that are resistant to standard treatment.
Another risk of being on a ventilator is a sinus infection.
Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for other problems, such as:
*Pneumothorax (noo-mo-THOR-aks). This is a condition in which air leaks out of the lungs and into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. This can cause pain and shortness of breath, and it may cause one or both lungs to collapse.
*Lung damage. Pushing air into the lungs with too much pressure can harm the lungs.
*Oxygen toxicity. High levels of oxygen can damage the lungs.These problems may occur because of the forced airflow or high levels of oxygen from the ventilator.
Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for blood clots and serious skin infections. These problems tend to occur in people who have certain diseases and/or who are confined to bed or a wheelchair and must remain in one position for long periods.
Another possible problem is damage to the vocal cords from the breathing tube….
Now, all those possible risks of being on a ventilator. I wonder how many of the “COVID-19” patients, especially in New York, who have been on a ventilator and who died, really may have died of lung damage, oxygen toxicity, or pneumonia as caused by the ventilator itself, in which they wouldn’t have died just from COVID-19 alone. (One New York City ICU doctor has expressed a similar concern.)
In other words, in which the real cause of death was something other than COVID-19.
We now know that the health officials, CDC, etc. are counting as COVID deaths even those deaths that were caused by other illnesses.
Dr. Deborah Birx, one of Trump’s health advisors, has already admitted that they are falsely counting as “COVID deaths” those deaths whose actual cause was the patient’s other preexisting illness, such as heart failure or kidney disease.
Birx stated, according to the Daily Wire: “we are taking a very liberal approach to mortality…If someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that.” In other words, the person really died of heart failure or kidney disease as the real cause of death, but she says that if the person died “with” COVID-19, they are still counting that as a COVID death. (To intentionally drive up the death count? But why, if so?)
Dr. Birx stated, “There are other countries, that if you have a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus called you to go to the ICU (intensive care unit) and then have a heart or kidney problem … Some countries are recording that as a kidney issue, or a heart issue, and not a COVID-19 death.”
The CDC guidelines, which that Daily Wire article also quotes from, states, “COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death …”
In other words, the CDC is promoting fraud in the official U.S. COVID-19 death count!
And that obviously includes whatever extra deaths may have been caused by possibly bacteria-laden ventilators.
This whole thing is suspicious to me. The WHOLE thing. It “doesn’t pass the smell test.”
