When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself

What has happened in our country – and in much of the world – due to shutting down economies, will make an excellent case study for future economic students. An excellent case study of WHAT NOT TO DO.

Based upon models created by “experts,” hospitals and healthcare facilities have set everything aside to deal with the thousands of anticipated Wuhan virus cases. We have shutdown and basically crashed our economy.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) – funded by Bill Gates – created models to predict how many Americans would die of the Wuhan virus. These numbers were used in anticipation of determining the number of beds needed to treat Wuhan virus victims at hospitals.

Sean Davis at The Federalist has done a good job of tracking the “experts” and their predictions. Turns out they aren’t so “expert” at all. Their numbers have continuously been revised to lower numbers. Or as they say, “our estimates will change, much like weather forecasts adjust.”

Using the IHME models, hospitals began postponing routine surgeries and treatments. It turns out that hospitals are not as full of the anticipated number of Wuhan virus patients. So what are they doing now?

From USA Today: “Thousands of US medical workers furloughed, laid off as routine patient visits drop during coronavirus pandemic”

From their story: “Orr joins thousands of health care workers across the nation who have been laid off, furloughed or are working reduced hours as their services are deemed nonessential and patients skip routine visits during an outbreak of COVID-19 cases, based on reporting from advocacy groups and from news stories from across the nation.

How many health care workers are included in the record 3.28 million Americans that filed for initial unemployment benefits last week is unknown. Specific data from the U.S. Department of Labor will be released when it reports its March unemployment numbers Friday.”

Another example of what is happening in the health care industry as a result of preparing for the worst? Hospitals closing: Integris Baptist Medical Center Portland Avenue in northwest Oklahoma City is being closed and an unspecified number of patients will be moved to another Integris hospital in the city because of a drop in patients, Integris Health spokeswoman Brooke Cayot said Thursday.”

Stories like this are happening all over the country (except New York).

Turns out that in order to avoid a healthcare system crisis, we somehow have managed to destroy healthcare for millions of people. An excellent case study of WHAT NOT TO DO.

What exactly is going on here? As Judge Judy says, if it doesn’t make sense, then it’s not true. None of this has made sense, not even from the beginning.😒

Yeah, but we’re in uncharted territory here. Nobody has ever been sick before, especially old people with multiple chronic health issues. It’s unprecedented

They may be dialing it back. Nipples says the NY prevalence curve is flattening. Wuhan reopened, accompanied by a mass exodus. They have revised the projected number of deaths here, overnight, from 80K to 60K. About the same number of people who died due to the arthritis drug celebrex. They let them recover their investment before pulling it. The insanity continues apace however. Our one market is requiring every customer to have their temp taken. Mostly old people shop there because they don’t drive. If they have any kind of elevated temp I suppose they’ll become cases. There’s only a… Read more »

Your local store is taking people’s temperature before letting them in to shop? You’ve got to be kidding me?!

Even the best, most accurate models depend on the initial assumptions that are made and then the accuracy and timeliness of the data points they receive. I have no knowledge of how accurate the IMHE and other models are. However, I understand one initial assumption that was made was that only about half of the U.S. population would follow the mitigation instructions. I read that it is now estimated that nearly 90% of the population is taking at least some steps for mitigation. The initial and all subsequent data coming out of China regarding Wuhan and the spread to other… Read more »

The first thing that would have to be done would be to establish the existence of a “novel” virus. But if you want to create a virtual pandemic, that’s the LAST thing you’d want to do. From Rappaport: Suspecting the existence of a new disease-causing virus, researchers should line up, at the very least, several hundred people who seem to have the new disease. Tissue samples should be taken from them. Using correct steps of centrifuging these samples, specimens of the results should be examined and photographed under the electron microscope. In every one of the several hundred photos, do… Read more »

I take some steps to mitigate my chances coming down with it, but not as much as most people do – I use common sense.

Kinda like the way I deal with the environment – I do what I can to recycle, turn off electricity when I’m not using, but I don’t go overboard, either.

Maybe when this is over Trump will use it to completely overhaul our broken health care industry? There has to be a light at the end of a tunnel somewhere?

What madness! What malice! And to allow two puppets of Bill Gates to set the rules for a helpless people! President Trump, please listen when your loyal voters like me tell you that our support is slipping away! Bill Gates is a eugenicist and a globalist. We have hardly heard his name mentioned in recent years, and now he is everywhere. Gates, you have enough money to overpower us, but the living God, whose resurrection we remember today WILL NOT BE MOCKED.
