One thing i learned this year is that history books can be burned as they carry enough falsehoods to invalidate the truthful content in them. Just look how so many of twisted perceptions on this covid are given as facts and one can be sure that such distortions have been common and widely abused since stone carved letters, except now they have all the modern technology to do brainwashing.

Can you get the coronavirus twice?
The Associated Press today

Can you get the coronavirus twice?

Scientists don’t know for sure yet, but they believe it’s unlikely.

Health experts think people who had COVID-19 will have some immunity against a repeat infection. But they don’t know how much protection or how long it would last.
If the Scientists don’t know for sure, then is it possible that someone can carry the COVID-19 virus not showing any signs when tested, because it is in that of a dormant state for now.
Always "hope" but never "expect".

But it’s third world, so who cares, right?
First world nations are struggling with massive unemployment, overburdened health care systems, etc. all from the pandemic.

And the solution is what?

That all first world leaders should tell their constituents to just all die, ‘cause they’re going to blow their taxpayer money and send it to help the children of the third world instead?

Many third world leaders are rich. Yet they still keep prostituting their people for handouts. And have done so for decades. Lots of civil wars and rebellions in the third world, too, that have displaced millions and cause starvation. If all sides would just lay down their arms and feed their people, then millions of children could be saved.

The people of the world care very much about the third world. But does the third world care about the people of the world?

Canceling all restrictions, immediately, of course. Should have been done back in April or better yet no confinements in the first place.
It will happen eventually but not before socio-economic chaos, all man-made due to incompetent assessment, mind you.

Meanwhile, the virus will carry on, as most respiratory diseases carry on since ancient times. It is going to directly kill one million a year which is less than what tuberculosis kills each year. There will be a big overlap with flu deaths of fragiles too which number in half a million each year, overall a non-issue statistically, this virus. Only blown out of proportions by media, doctors and politicians.

“I have cut off nations;
Their corner towers are in ruins.
I have made their streets desolate,
With no one passing by;
Their cities are laid waste,
Without a man, without an inhabitant.

Isaiah 24:10

The city of chaos is broken down;
Every house is shut up so that none may enter.

Why are Asian countries doing better against COVID-19?

Posted By: Sharon Chau July 29, 2020

With the US experiences unprecedented surges in COVID-19 numbers and Europe is still reeling from a catastrophic pandemic, many Asian countries have performed comparatively better in containing the virus. Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea have led the world in showing how countries can effectively deal with COVID-19. Living in Hong Kong, I experienced firsthand how surprisingly compliant Hongkongers were towards stringent government guidelines despite a year of stormy protests. I believe these Asian countries’ success is the result of their previous experience with other epidemics, swift governmental policies and higher levels of trust in public health policy.

Asia’s previous experience with other similar infectious diseases is largely why we dealt with COVID-19 well. Hong Kong went through a SARS outbreak in 2002-4, where 1755 people were infected and 299 died. This was the turning point in Hongkongers’ attitudes towards public health, as maintaining hygiene became deeply ingrained in everyone’s consciousness.

Taiwan also experienced SARS and saw 73 deaths, while South Korea experienced a virulent outbreak of MERS in 2015. There are four reasons why this previous experience with epidemics is important: 1) governments in these countries were more vigilant and willing to take drastic, decisive action; 2) these countries had experience in dealing with them and therefore knew what measures would be the most effective; 3) countries would have invested more in medical research for related diseases which could be utilised for COVID-19; and 4) the public would be more compliant in following measures and offer political capital for drastic action due to lingering fear from the past outbreak. All four factors were evident in Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea’s relatively quick and effective response to the outbreak of COVID-19. For example, a rigorous habit of hand-washing now exists in Hong Kong and mask-wearing was normalised after the SARS outbreak.

This is in contrast to the West, which had no previous experience with large epidemics and so did not have the relevant experience or urgency in dealing with COVID-19. They also believed that similar to SARS or MERS, the outbreak would be contained mostly within Asia, and hence acted much too slowly in closing borders or instituting social distancing measures. As such, they were far less vigilant about COVID-19.

Hard to get trust in your institutions when your idiot president is undermining them.

Global report: July's terrible toll revealed as coronavirus cases double every six weeks
3 August 2020
July was the worst month of the coronavirus pandemic so far for many countries, with more than 8 million cases recorded – nearly as many as the first six months of the outbreak put together, figures have shown.

With global infections passing 18 million on Monday, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned over the weekend that the pandemic continues to accelerate, with cases doubling about every six weeks.

The United States reported a record 1.87 million cases in July, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker, more than twice the figure for the previous record month, April, when 860,000 new cases were reported. May saw 690,200 new infections, while June saw 820,000 cases. US infections are approaching 5 million, with 4,657,693 confirmed, or more than a quarter of the global total. US deaths stand at 154,834, or a fifth of the global total of 687,067.
