Scared to Death

Are you scared to death by the Corona Virus?

In the United States the Flu Season usually peaks in February.

Flu season is an annually recurring time period characterized by the prevalence of outbreaks of influenza (flu). The season occurs during the cold half of the year in each hemisphere. Influenza activity can sometimes be predicted and even tracked geographically. While the beginning of major flu activity in each season varies by location, in any specific location these minor epidemics usually take about 3 weeks to peak, and another 3 weeks to significantly diminish.

In the United States, the flu season is considered October through May. It usually peaks in February.

In Australia, the flu season is considered May to October. It usually peaks in August.

The flu kills somewhere between 12,000 and 80,000 people in the United States every year.

Last year, more than 80,000 people died of the flu and its complications in the United States, the highest death toll for the disease in at least four decades.

The current flu season started at the beginning of October and lasts until May.

As of Feb. 9, between 15.4 million and 17.8 million people nationwide have caught the flu, the Centers for Disease and Control reported.

Two million of those cases came in the week that ended Feb. 9.

The CDC warned that was the highest flu activity it has seen this season, USA Today reported.

There have been 11,600 to 19,100 deaths so far.

A total of 34 influenza-associated pediatric deaths have been reported to CDC for this season.

For the 2017-2018 season, 185 pediatric flu deaths were reported.

Between 184,000 and 221,000 people have been hospitalized with the flu so far this season.

The CDC said the flu typically kills 12,000 to 56,000 people in the U.S. in a year.

This year is different.

This year the United States confronts the Corona Virus.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS coronavirus 2, or SARS-CoV-2), a virus closely related to the SARS virus.

The disease was discovered and named during the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak.

Those affected may develop a fever, dry cough, fatigue, and shortness of breath.

A sore throat, runny nose or sneezing is less common.

While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some can progress to pneumonia and multi-organ failure.

This year big money rests upon a Corona Virus “Pandemic” being declared.

For those who are not part of the conspiracy networks, this is related to the outstanding World Bank Pandemic Bonds which will come due for expiration this July here in 2020.

This will be in the neighborhood of $500 million which is perhaps a structured derivative time bomb that most people have never heard of.

These pandemic bonds were sold to investors as a giant gamble in the global financial casino.

The World Bank sold “pandemic bonds” which were a scheme like no other.

In 2017, these bonds were sold to private investors on the premise that they would lose their money if any of six deadly pandemics hit.

They did not pay out in 2019 when the Ebola virus broke out in Africa.

The World Bank announced the creation of these structured bonds in May 2016 at the G7 Finance Ministers and Central Governors meeting in Sendai, Japan.

The World Health Organisation will keep the money and will use it to fight the outbreak.

Investors bought the bonds and received regular coupon payments in return, which were substantial in this world of negative interest rates.

If there is an outbreak of disease turned into a pandemic, then investors don’t get their initial money back. There are two varieties of debt that are scheduled to mature in July 2020.

Half-Billion $ Pandemic Derivatives
Martin Armstrong – 25 Feb 2020

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/disease/half-billion-pandemic-derivatives/

The World Bank (International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) today launched specialized bonds aimed at providing financial support to the Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility (PEF), a facility created by the World Bank to channel surge funding to developing countries facing the risk of a pandemic.

The PEF will provide more than $500 million to cover developing countries against the risk of pandemic outbreaks over the next five years, through a combination of bonds and derivatives priced today, a cash window, and future commitments from donor countries for additional coverage.

The PEF covers six viruses that are most likely to cause a pandemic.

These include new Orthomyxoviruses (new influenza pandemic virus A), Coronaviridae (SARS, MERS), Filoviridae (Ebola, Marburg) and other zoonotic diseases (Crimean Congo, Rift Valley, Lassa fever).

So far this year Corona Virus has killed 3,070 people in mainland China.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019%E2%80%9320_coronavirus_outbreak

So far this year Corona Virus has killed 197 people in Italy.

In the study reported the average age of the deceased patients as of March 4, 2020 for Covid-19 and the different diseases they were suffering from.

The average age of deceased patients who were positive for Covid-2019 is 81 years, the majority of whom are men.

They, in more than two thirds of cases, have three or more pre-existing diseases.

This is confirmed by an analysis conducted by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità on 105 Italian patients who died on March 4.

The study points out that there is a 20-year difference between the average age of the deceased and that of the virus positive.

The report, according to what is reported on the website of the Ministry of Health, concerns the deceased patients. It is based on data obtained by completing a questionnaire. This questionnaire was developed ad hoc for the purpose of detecting death cases.

The average age of the patients surveyed is 81 years, about 20 years older than the patients who have contracted the infection. There are 28 women (26.7%).

Data

According to ISS data, 42.2% of deaths occur in the 80 to 89 age group. 32.4% were between 70 and 79, while 8.4% were between 60 and 69, 2.8% between 50 and 59 and 14.1% over the age of 90.

Women who died of Covid-19 infection are older than men.

Experts from the Higher Institute of Health have also discovered that the average number of diseases observed in the population under consideration is 3.4.

Overall, 15.5% of the sample had 0 or 1 pathology, 18.3% had 2 pathologies and 67.2% had 3 or more pathologies.

The most represented pathologies: Hypertension, ischemic heart disease and diabetes.

“Although preliminary, these data confirm the observations made so far in the rest of the world on the main characteristics of patients, in particular on the fact that the elderly and people with pre-existing diseases are more at risk. These are very fragile people, who often live in close contact and who we must protect as much as possible”.

This is the comment of the President of the ISS Dr. Silvio Brusaferro

The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (Italian National Institute of Health), also ISS, is an Italian public institution that, as the leading technical-scientific body of the Italian National Health Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale), performs research, trials, control, counseling, documentation and training for public health. The Institute is under the supervision of the Ministero della Salute (Ministry of Health).

    No, I do not fear this virus if it is even infectious in Australia….

    I am afraid of the Nova and consequences, mostly the possibility of giant tsunami because of physical pole reversal …. The Phoenix has consequences.

    Tim,
    You really are the One-Man Army, when it comes to revealing these ‘little’ hidden truths!

    $500 million isn’t exactly chump change – and a whole lot of people stand to gain financially – WHO supply contracts of masks, protective gear and the lot.

    Well done and keep the good work going!!

  4. Hari Nair, are you involved in medical research? I know a Hari Nair who helped my late father and brother with dad’s blood replacement research arolund 1999-2000 AD. Dad passed away during 2001. My brother passed away 2003,

    No, not “Supernova”, it just went Nova. A new star with more planets. This will also occur with every star.

    Every star.

    The expulsion is along the main axis of power supplying the star. It is pointing at Sol. It will mean the same here, soon. Venus and Mercury were the last planets expelled from our star.

    The star Betelgeuse is still discernible, under the dust. The new companion is also visible, but not on this “illustration”.

    There will be many fantastic disasters. Dis, meaning down and aster, meaning star. Cat, meaning fall and astrophe, meaning star.

    We should find other Novae, soon as the current approcahes Sol.

    Put your house in order?

    How far away is that star, do you think?

  7. The rat?? Very dead. Stinks to high heaven.
    But then, being old, age makes a pessimist of an old nose.
    Still dead men draw no pension, so can’t help seeing a windfall for the social services of this world.
    Dammit. What a way to go.

    It appears reaction to Coronavirus® has wreaked more carnage globally than the virus itself. Although a 2-3% mortality rate is nothing to sneeze at, it’s not exactly a Biblical plague either; even if virtually none of it passes the sniff test.

    Given how Coronavirus® has been reported, coupled with how it’s been handled, its dubious origins, the alleged number of infected and deceased, as well as the age and general health of those who are reported to have died….something stinks.

    The US Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams has issued an order to Americans worried about the coronavirus. “Seriously people—STOP BUYING MASKS!” tweeted Dr. Adams, an anesthesiologist who has served as surgeon general since 2017. Adams said that face masks are “NOT effective in preventing [the] general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”

    The Virologist further stated that the US has recently had more than 200 “pulmonary fibrosis” cases that resulted in death due to patients’ inability to breathe, but whose conditions and symptoms could not be explained by pulmonary fibrosis.

    He said he wrote articles informing the US health authorities to consider seriously those deaths as resulting from the coronavirus, but they responded by blaming the deaths on e-cigarettes, then silenced further discussion. …

    The Taiwanese doctor then stated the virus outbreak began earlier than assumed, saying, “We must look to September of 2019”.

    He stated the case in September of 2019 where some Japanese traveled to Hawaii and returned home infected, people who had never been to China.

    This was two months prior to the infections in China and just after the CDC suddenly and totally shut down the Fort Detrick bio-weapons lab claiming the facilities were insufficient to prevent loss of pathogens.

    Pulmonary fibrosis is a condition in which the lungs become scarred over time.

    Symptoms include shortness of breath, a dry cough, feeling tired, weight loss, and nail clubbing.

    Complications may include pulmonary hypertension, respiratory failure, pneumothorax, and lung cancer.

    Causes include environmental pollution, certain medications, connective tissue diseases, infections, and interstitial lung diseases.

    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a type of interstitial lung disease of unknown cause, is the most common cause.

    Diagnosis may be based on symptoms, medical imaging, lung biopsy, and lung function tests.

    There is no known cure.

    Case 1:

    A 59-year-old female from Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital presented with fever and chills.

    She had no history of sick contacts in the family, but she referred a plane ride 5 days prior to onset of symptoms from London, U.K., to Chengdu, China.

    Chest radiograph (Fig 1a) and chest CT (Fig 1b,c) at presentation showed patchy right lower lobe ground-glass opacities.

    A very curious coincidence.

    In the absence of any patients’ details or chronology of deaths, speculation has swirled.

    Zhao’s “theory” in particular focused on the military delegation that traveled to Wuhan in October for the Military World Games, weeks before the city confirmed the outbreak in December.

    The delegation was part of the 300-member group of American athletes taking part in the multi-sport event held every four years.

    Zhao is not the only high-profile political figure to voice suspicions about the timing of the Games and the introduction of the coronavirus in Wuhan.

    The Military World Games is a multi-sport event for military sportspeople, organized by the International Military Sports Council (CISM).

    The 2019 Military World Games, officially known as the 7th CISM Military World Games, was held from October 18–27, 2019 in the capital of Hubei Province in Wuhan, China.

    The 7th Military World Games was the first international military multi-sport event to be held in China and also it was the largest military sports event ever to be held in China, with nearly 10,000 athletes from over 100 countries competed in 27 sports
