    “ ImpactHK have now helped over 100 individuals into shelter over the past two years. And almost all of the individuals we’ve helped into safe living spaces are still there!

    This is because of our understanding of the importance of friendship and community.

    We know that housing alone does not solve homelessness. But this step is one that could lead to saving the lives of an incredible amount of homeless individuals in Hong Kong.

    McDonald’s, the fast food restaurant, has been housing hundreds and hundreds of individuals every night. People in great need sleep there every night because it’s the only safe place they know where to go.

    Due to this virus outbreak McD’s is closing it’s doors at 6pm starting tonight.

    This will mean that roughly 500 individuals will be outside in strange locations tonight, cold, afraid and alone.

    This just isn’t acceptable!

    Our Plan
    We would like to raise as much as we can over the next three days.

    100% of money will be spent on hostels and small hotels.

    These businesses are struggling too and this could make a huge difference for them as well.

    On all of our 20 Kindness Walks this week, we will offer instant accommodation to the homeless, getting them into safety and also giving us a better opportunity to develop trust and friendship with them.

    The crowdfunding platform SparkRaise have so kindly offered to waive the transaction fee for your donations!! So every dollar will go directly to getting individuals into a warm bed!!

    Thanks for your support!!”

      I rushed this through on the WH contact page but here it is.

      Dear President Trump,

      I voted for you sir and Damn proud of it but for the love of God, please VETO this monstrosity of a bill (Cares Act) that the senate has rushed through. Please read it to the American people and explain to them why you will veto this. We the people are tired of this constant rush to always push bills through that never favor the American people. For many years now, politicians have always promised us the world and only delivered a tiny fraction of those promises, yet still always pretending to represent us. But you sir, you were different and this is why the American people voted for you. You asked us to take a chance and we did! So now I’m asking you to take a chance and trust the American people who put you in office the first time and know that we will be there the second time.

      Your a good man sir, even I know you cannot morally sign this Act.

      Mr. President… We have your back, I promise you!

      Respectfully,

      I knew when Romney conveniently realized he needed to self sequester so he couldn’t vote on the clean bill that the Uni-Party was orchestrating the usual swindle.
      And now we have States attacking the middle class by shutting down their means of a livelyhood so that they can qualify for a bigger coronavirus cash handout.

      I wish President Trump would veto it.

      Here almost April 15, the IRS has everyone’s information at their fingertips. All they would have to do cut a check and send what we sent in this year.

      But that would mean that no politician would get to be the boss of who get what and how much they have to kick back to them.

      Just think how Nancy Pelosi and her pals drooled at the thought of skimming yet more billions in taxpayer money – we are easy pickings this time.

    Hong Kong / Health & Environment
    Coronavirus measures help Hong Kong flu season end early
    Better hygiene practices, work from home, school closures, rigorous testing, and wider vaccination coverage are among factors that made influenza less fatal
    Number of deaths more than halved at 113 this year from 356 in 2019, while intensive care unit admissions dropped from 601 to 182“

    Excerpt:

    “ Health experts have said social distancing and increased awareness resulting from the coronavirus pandemic helped end Hong Kong’s winter influenza season nine weeks earlier this time than last year, but 113 people still died of the flu.
    The number of deaths in the city more than halved from 356 in 2019, while intensive care unit admissions dropped from 601 to 182.
    By Wednesday afternoon, the city reported 410 Covid-19 infections, including four fatalities.
    The Centre for Health Protection said Hong Kong’s annual flu season lasted only about five weeks this year – from January 5 to February 8.
    “The influenza peaked around late January, before starting to decrease continuously. In early February, it returned to the baseline level,” a spokesman for the centre said.

    That was shorter than the 14 weeks recorded last year, between December 30, 2018, and April 6, 2019.

    Health authorities had found positive results in 18.76 per cent of respiratory specimens, down 11.34 points from 30.1 per cent at last year’s peak.
    Hong Kong has flattened the coronavirus curve but can it stay the course
    24 Mar 2020

    The dominant virus in this influenza season was influenza A (H1), accounting for around 80 per cent of infections, followed by A (H3), at around 16 per cent, and very few influenza B positive detections.

    Epidemiologists said the city had been able to avoid the double whammy of influenza and the coronavirus outbreak largely because of social distancing measures and heightened vigilance caused by the pandemic.
    Infectious disease expert Dr Joseph Tsang Kay-yan said class suspensions in kindergartens, schools, and universities, in force since the Lunar New Year holiday ended on February 3, as well as work-from-home arrangements and cancellation of large-scale public events, had played a big role in curbing the spread of the flu.
    “Seasonal influenza was earlier proved to spread quickly among schoolchildren,” he said.
    We saw coronavirus infections rebound very quickly after some citizens seemed to have let down their guard and started going out and about again
    Dr Leung Chi-chiu, chairman, advisory committee on communicable diseases, Hong Kong Medical Association
    Better personal and environmental hygiene practices, such as wearing masks and using hand sanitisers, also helped.
    “The coronavirus outbreak has seen a lot of collateral damage, but this is a collateral benefit,” Tsang said.

    Another factor according to him that helped bring a swift end to the winter flu was an expansion of the vaccination programme among people, with more than 1.3 million doses administered by the government this year – a year-on-year increase of 17 per cent.

    Dr Leung Chi-chiu, chairman of the Hong Kong Medical Association’s advisory committee on communicable diseases, echoed Tsang’s comments and said good public health practices had helped break down “invisible routes of transmission” by subclinical patients in the community.
    He also pointed to the sharp fall in influenza infections after the first coronavirus case was reported in the city on January 23.
    More rigorous testing this year has helped us contain the seasonal influenza too
    Dr Ho Chung-ping, president, Hong Kong Medical Association
    Leung added travel restrictions had also helped lower imported infections. But he said the city still needed to guard against a potential resurgence of the seasonal influenza, particularly influenza B, since there was low herd immunity in the community as fewer people had been infected with that strain of the virus.

    “We saw coronavirus infections rebound very quickly after some citizens seemed to have let down their guard and started going out and about again,” Leung said.
    The flat influenza curve allowed the city to concentrate on battling the deadly coronavirus, Leung said.
    “Otherwise our public hospitals would have been overwhelmed fighting two wars on two fronts at the same time,” he added.
    Dr Ho Chung-ping, the association’s president, said while business at the city’s private clinics, including those from influenza cases, was down 50 per cent on average, many had flocked to public facilities to get tested when they presented symptoms such as a fever and cough.
    “More rigorous testing this year has helped us contain the seasonal influenza too,” he said”

    Did ballot harvesting make it into the Senate Bill?

    Ballot harvesting is at the very heart of what democrats want. Every other progressive desire was to be bargained away so ballot harvesting would remain. The fix is in.

    President Trump still can win 2020, but the GOP loses both houses. Trump gets impeached again, but this time, he gets removed.

        • If a ballot-box can be “stuffed,” by any means at all, then it will be “stuffed.” It’s just that simple. Print laundry sacks filled with fake ballots and drop them off “on behalf of your friend.” Drive to every polling place – they won’t ask for identification – and cast your vote in every one of them while dropping off handfuls of ballots. There’s really one and only one reason why the Democrats wanted this added to election law, and we all know exactly who that reason is. 🤠

            I have probably been in ERs a dozen times in the last 10 years and always with my cell phone and it always had a camera. All my phones could take pictures without a flash and I have never, ever been asked if I had a camera. My guess is it would be illegal and my guess is it must be posted. Using a disposable camera, I took photos of my unconscious friend, Bill, who was in an ER lying on a gurney in a t shirt and beautiful Mickey Mouse boxer shorts. I took it for his family and it hangs in his home till this day. He broke his hip in a motorcycle accident.

        I worked in ER’S for 25 years. I was at the same hospital through SARS, bird flu, H1NI swine flu, Ebola and Zika. H1N1 in 2009 was a very trying time for ER staff. Often we had patIents in beds lined up against the walls and the nurses’ station. At one point we had to open other areas like occupational medicine to make enough room.

        We followed protocol and pandemic guidelines. Our esteemed governor Tim Kaine did not shut down businesses, schools, baseball games, bowling alleys, etc. (Just this morning Sen Kaine was bashing Trump for not reacting sooner). There was also no profiling in the news every hour of each patient who was affected or who had died from H1NI. For the most part they remained anonymous and the media couldn’t have cared less about their personal stories. There was no rush on TP.

        H1N1 was a ‘new strain’ of flu and word from CDC and WHO at the time was they did not know the trajectory of the virus.

        I no longer work at the ER but I know people who still do here in the city. They are adamant that COVID-19 is nothing like H1N1 in the latter’s seriousness, infection and death rates.

        The shutting down of businesses and as the governors have stated ‘our way of life’ is exactly what these same politicians were against in 2009 with H1N1! They, including Obama in a presser, encouraged us not to panic.

        That Dr Birx related her great-grandmother’s horrible story of the 1918 flu was reckless and subversive. People are now saying this is like the 1918 pandemic!

          flova: A genuine thank-you for this post from one esteemed healthcare professional to another. Although in no way are we attempting to diminish a viral outbreak, hospitals have had these situations before and hospitals and healthcare workers know what to do. The difference in this case is the fear-stoking and panic-peddling 24/7. To my point, how many people did you see out in public wearing masks, gloves, and other PPE during H1N1 or SARs or a tough flu season? Not as many as I am seeing everywhere. 100% d/t media. Healthcare workers are well-trained professionals and rise to the occasion. Sending well-wishes and thank-yous to all in the industry.

      Plainly, you do not “quarantine” those who are well – you quarantine those who are very sick. It was never appropriate to tell hundreds of millions of people to stop working, to stop living, and to isolate themselves in order to “prevent” an illness that is nowhere near them and most likely will never be.

      These “researchers” are speaking of a disease as though it were some abstract thing, and they’re using it as implicit justification for a host of evils. We live in a world filled with viruses, including coronaviruses, which most of the time produce – a cold. A “common” cold. If you “feel like you’re coming down with something,” stay home. Wash your hands with soap and water. Sneeze into your sleeve. That’s it.

      But here we have “this vague, life-threatening contagion” that we’re speaking of in the abstract and using to impose all sorts of draconian measures that aren’t warranted. This isn’t medicine anymore – it’s an exercise testing the limits of what liberties people will give up when they’ve been told to be afraid. Turns out to be quite a lot.

      • If you can be infectious, but have no symptoms (you can), and you can’t qualify to get tested unless you have severe symptoms (also true), then how in hell can you TELL who is or isn’t well? Hence the need for the “well” (who may or may not be) to also be kept home for a couple of weeks, the average duration of the disease.

        Every hospital had rehearsals for the possibility of a mass disease outbreak. It’s a normal part of training. Unfortunately, none of the scripts included the possibility of a complete diagnostic failure – not having a way to confirm who has or doesn’t have the disease until long after it was spread to a wide area. The thing that HAPPENED was unanticipated, unimagined.

        The main point of the article is that quarantining everybody would not work. We need to expose enough people to it over a period of time to build the herd immunity.

        Quarantine of healthcare workers will ensure that you eventually have no healthcare workers. Shouldn’t there be a protocol for workers other than a straight quarantine if you have “contact”? I’ve never really heard a good definition of contact either.

    Wouldn’t it be the greatest paradigm shift in press reporting by getting news reported directly to the people via online, real time, interactive video conferencing or chat sessions?

That is why Trump has do whatever it takes to get reelected, make some compromises we don’t agree with and work with the other side, he has no choice. Remember, half the country hates him. He needs to get through this, get reelected, regain the house , hold the senate and then destroy the people who have been trying to. destroy our country.

    Would not be surprised that the United States end up with highest death toll in world from the Chinese Flu. Higher numbers mean more money. Plus the media’s hatred of President Trump.

    In Puerto Rico the death toll after Hurricane Maria was 64. Then they changed the way they counted:

    ‘those who died in the six months following the storm as a result of poor healthcare provision and a lack of electricity and clean water. Repeated power cuts also led to an increased number of deaths from diabetes and sepsis.’

    The official death toll was (as of August 29, 2018): 2,975 with ‘experts’ saying 4,600.

    Would not be surprised to start hearing ‘Covid 19 (Chinese Flu) RELATED deaths. I.e., a person did not have the Chinese Flu, but died because of the Chinese Flu. 🤔

    Don’t ask him. Just tell him.

    And then do it.

    I would bet he would not say a word. He knows this extreme distance is hurting his community’s spirit.

    And then meet and pray.

    This treehouse comment from previous post makes the most common sense to me – we have some die hard conservatives that need to think outside the balance sheet – trump needs to get re-elected, then bring our businesses home – we will be stronger in the end.

    A veto doesn’t get him re-elected – and at least all that voting crap and diversity junk is out!

    To everyone on here saying veto this bill (and not even read the bill) think about this. This country, at best, maybe equally divided, look how close the elections were in so many states. Trump needs the African american vote, the independents, the walk away dems, walk away union and the regular people who don’t like him but see he is doing a good job. He needs the economy to rebound quickly and look how the market has reacted the last 2 days. How do you think all the investors(again,all voters), especially the retired investors feel about that.

    Is this bill perfect, of course not, none are, and Trump said as much yesterday. The fact is there are a lot of hurting Americans who need help at this time (and these people vote), Whether you believe this is a real pandemic or not doesn’t matter at this point at least half the country does, as does most of the world. and states are shutting down, so Trump has no choice but to deal with this accordingly, And that includes a give and take politics/negotiations, whether you like it or not.

    There is a huge voting block that wants this bailout and Trump needs a good % of those to help him win in 2020.There is no doubt in my mind that if he veto’s this bill (which he wont) he can kiss his reelection goodbye and then what do we have. A smart president can’t just play to his base, he has to try to appease everyone. I’m just surprised so many fail to understand this. Like his song at his rallies, you can’t always get what you want, you get what you need. JMHO.

    Nothing wakes up an electorate like a man-made crisis which severely inconveniences (at best) or financially ruins just about every person in a country. I believe Trump knew exactly what they were doing, decided “You want a pandemic? I’ll give you a pandemic” BUT with a 15-day end date — just enough time for a giant red pill. He holds those press conferences to allow the media to reveal themselves in front of huge captive audiences ironically created by the media themselves who pushed the panic and hysteria upon the people. How about the democrat governor denying chloroquine use in his state — think about the millions who were awakened by that one move. Even democrats want the medicine.

    Maybe this long drawn-out war with the globalist elites will end sooner than we all thought possible thanks to their own miscalculation of what people will tolerate (including democrat voters), Trump’s ability to use their own words and actions against them, and their inability to understand anything outside their bubbles.

      The “death rate” metric being promoted by Zerohedge is wrong.

      The “death rate” is defined as total number who have died from the virus divided by the total number certified to have contracted the virus.

      Not virus deaths divided by population numbers.

      The correct US CV death rate now stands at 1.4%. The US CV death rate is much higher than the death rate of the flu, which is around .1% or less. That is why the “experts” are all agree the CV is more lethal than the “Flu.”
