Whose fingerprints are on the coronavirus?

Whose fingerprints are on the coronavirus? | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
This may well be why China recently told the U.S. to "correct its mistakes" concerning the origin of the virus. A day after President Donald Trump described coronavirus as the "Chinese Virus" on Twitter, Beijing responded, "We express strong indignation and objection to such stigmatization." But obviously, China finds itself on the horns of a dilemma about detailing development of the virus. After all, despite some U.S. and Australian government participation, the Chinese were the ones ultimately putting it all together and, in the end, responsible for its accidental release.

How U.S. Cities Tried to Halt the Spread of the 1918 Spanish Flu

Lacking a vaccine or even a known cause of the outbreak, mayors and city health officials were left to improvise. Should they close schools and ban all public gatherings? Should they require every citizen to wear a gauze face mask? Or would shutting down important financial centers in wartime be unpatriotic?

GE WORKERS PROTEST: WE WANT TO BUILD VENTILATORS
Al Cannistras insight:

GE – LET THEM DO IT….  It was my privilege to work many years for a company that had a rich history in AMERICAN manufacturing. What I am sharing here is from WW2 (before my time thank you) but shared by folks that lived it. The primary plant in Chicago was converted to support the WAR EFFORT – munitions I believe – it used to make things for the kitchen – like can openers – we made millions of them, maybe more than anyone in the world. But there was a WAR to fight. We were AMERICAN. (This is the company story:  https://www.madeinchicagomuseum.com/single-post/ekco-products-co  Search term in the article “war years”)

 

GE – if your good folks want to build ventilators – LET THEM BUILD VENTILATORS – We ARE AMERICANS fighting a war 2020

Flu is now widespread in 46 states

Flu is now widespread in 46 states | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The overall impact can vary greatly year to year, but flu always takes a substantial toll. CDC estimates that influenza has caused 9 million to 35 million illnesses, 140,000 to 710,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 to 56,000 deaths in the United States each year since 2010. In many cases, hospitalizations and deaths do not show up in official reports, for a variety of reasons — including the fact that most people with flu are never tested for it and that states are not required to report adult flu deaths.
