Event Update For 2020-05-13

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2020-05-13 - Coronavirus death toll approaches 87,000 in the United States:

Note: That's an undercount as the excess death statistics show. But even taken at face value, we're now past 1/8th of the total death toll from the 1918 Spanish Flu, and we're just getting started. At this point in the progression, the death toll from COVID-19 is on par with the death toll from the Spanish Flu when it was just a few months into its progression and still in its first wave. If we're LUCKY, we're about 20% of the way through this pandemic.

Part of the reason so many (675,000) died in the US during the Spanish Flu is that people got frustrated with the social distancing, and they got complacent as the first wave started to wane somewhat, so they opened things back up in some places. Then the Spanish Flu came roaring back for round 2 and really chewed through lives. One can see obvious parallels here with COVID-19. Those who forget the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them...

    Trump says he would mobilize military to distribute coronavirus vaccine when it's ready

    By Kathryn Watson

    May 14, 2020 / 1:03 PM / CBS News

    President Trump says he would "rapidly" mobilize the U.S. military to distribute a coronavirus vaccine once it's ready, focusing first on nursing homes and the elderly most vulnerable to deadly complications from the virus. Mr. Trump made the comments during an interview with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo.

    "We're mobilizing our military and other forces but we're mobilizing our military on the basis that we do have a vaccine. You know, it's a massive job to give this vaccine. Our military is now being mobilized so at the end of the year we're going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly," the president said. [more]

  2. Talking creates lingering droplets in air that might spread coronavirus - study

    "Highly sensitive laser light scattering observations have revealed that loud speech can emit thousands of oral fluid droplets per second," the report concluded, adding that researchers' observations confirmed "that there is a substantial probability that normal speaking causes airborne virus transmission in confined environments."

    However, study did not directly involve the novel coronavirus or any other diseases. Rather, it looked at how many oral fluid droplets are released per second and how long they linger in the air. Researchers are still unsure whether COVID-19 can spread through aerosol droplets, and it is unclear whether the lingering droplets observed by the study could carry enough virus particles to infect someone.

    The U.S. Is Caught In An Economic Death Spiral, And One Group Is Being Hit Particularly Hard…

    Many have been warning for years that our economic bubble would eventually burst and that a collapse was inevitably coming, but the ferocity of this new economic crisis has caught just about everyone off guard. And even though some states have been attempting to “reopen” their economies in recent days, the job loss tsunami just continues to roll on. Prior to this year, the all-time record for the most new unemployment claims in a single week was 695,000. That record was set all the way back in 1982, and it had survived all the way until 2020. But now we have been absolutely dwarfing that number week after week. On Thursday, we learned that another 2.9 million Americans filed initial claims for unemployment benefits last week, and that brings the grand total for this pandemic to more than 36 million…

    The powerless people on the bottom of the food chain get hurt the most, but the fat cats with political influence are able to get the big bailouts.

    At a briefing hosted by the Science Media Centre on 12 May he explained that, over the past five weeks, care homes and other community settings had had to deal with a "staggering burden" of 30 000 more deaths than would normally be expected, as patients were moved out of hospitals that were anticipating high demand for beds.

    Criminal indictments for Philippine Dengue vaccine includes President of Sanofi Pasteur and their FDA

    The president of Sanofi Pasteur Inc., along with a former health chief and now politician, Rep Janette Garin have all been indicted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the Philippines for reckless imprudence, resulting in homicide as a result of the deaths of children associated with the anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia. As a result of an ongoing investigation, government prosecutors found probable cause to file the charges against the named defendants as well as nine unnamed officials from the Department of Health, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine. Additional Sanofi Pasteur officials were indicted for violations of the Consumer Act of the Philippines.

    Known as the Dengvaxia controversy, there were hundreds of deaths associated with a Philippines Deng immunization program in 2017. The Department of Health there ultimately suspended a school-based vaccine program utilizing French drug maker Sanofi Pasteur's Dengvaxia vaccine due to a number of deaths from various complications that allegedly attributed to the vaccine product. Thereafter, the company went public with a statement that its product, in fact, poses higher risk to people without prior dengue infection. By August 2019, over 600 people, mostly children, who received the vaccine have died. It must be emphasized that not all of these deaths are due to the vaccine itself. Regardless, the DOH banned the vaccine's sale or use in the Philippines. [more]
