Nearly 500,000 Went to Hospital in 2018-19 Flu Season But Today There Are Not Enough Hospital Beds for Coronavirus Patients?

How can that be?

COVID Net Comms Plan 0200Z Sat 28 Mar (27 Mar Fri 2100 CDT)

Net control sends:

============================================================
Comm Plan.

Net Name – COVID Watch Net

Pri Freq – 7.243Mhz LSB
Sec Freq – 7.240Mhz LSB (down 3Khz)**
Alt Freq – 7.237Mhz LSB (down 3Khz)**

Start time – 0200Z Sat 28 Mar (27 Mar Fri 2100 CDT)

All stations be prepared to relay. Any station able to relay must be in
contact with NCS or Alt NCS. Use of amplifiers is desired.

**Net Control Station (NCS) moves to Sec Freq if Pri freq is
occupied or splatter is occurring at the NCS location. In the event the
Sec freq is occupied or is unworkable continue down to Alt frequency. If
Sec freq is used start time will be 2105z and if conditions require the
Alt freq use then start time will be 2110z. Minor adjustments in
operating freq may be required based on usage by other operators or nets.

End of Comm Plan.

Doom Connectivity

Now that I am a bit more caught up in several of my lives, I can handle some backlog tasks.

Anyone in the commentariat who wants me to pass on their email to someone else, send a note to wrsa@hushmail.com, use “connection” in subject line, and put the handle of the party you are trying to reach.

I will ping that party with your email.

What happens after that is a matter between consenting adults.

I’d rather do this in a batch then onesie-twosies, so please drop your notes nlt 2359e on Thurs.

Thanks.

How The Chinese Regime’s Silencing Of Whistleblowers Turned A Local Outbreak Into A Global Epidemic

H/t to Maggie’s for this blunt discussion of whodunit.

Hint: It was the mass-murdering totalitarian Han devils who intend to pay the West back for the past 350 years.

For the go-forward, Aesop drops this meme of advice:

Moving Pass The Quarantine

The ‘cure’ – of bankrupting entire industries through the loathsomely-termed “lockdown” – is worse than the threat.

And it increasingly appears that “curve flattening”, as advocated, has failed, with major hospitals continuing to fill to capacity and beyond.

Discussions of months under quarantine are madness, when what really is needed is massively-more testing and other rational disease-management tactics.

Thoughtful people are sensing a larger agenda at work.

Are you?

Communist China’s Viral Propaganda Campaign

It is, in fact, a Chinese virus, from the city of Wuhan.

Saying – and worse yet, believing – otherwise makes one a dupe of the greatest mass murderers our species has known to date.

Welcome to hybrid war.
