A Declaration of War – A Personal Statement on COVID 19
CBS News Service … The number of deaths caused by the coronavirus worldwide reached at least 13,049, including 340 in the U.S. and 4,825 in Italy, where the devastating virus has brought the country to its knees.
Saturday by recording record-breaking death tolls two days in a row. The country announced its biggest day-to-day increase of infections, which rose to 53,000 people, with nearly 800 new deaths. As bodies pile up in Italian hospitals, morgues and churches, and as medical workers plead for more help, there is no sign yet that Italy is taming its arc of its contagion.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said 114 people had died in the state, and said hospital capacity needs to double to meet the anticipated need for beds to treat patients.

COVID 19: 22 March, 2020
I just heard what I think makes a tremendous amount of GOOD SENSE. (In my Opinion)
In as much as the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) HAS DECLARED WAR on the US and the World, either by INTENTION or by OMISSION … WE SHOULD CONSIDER OURSELVES NOW AT WAR, and we need to ACT ACCORDINGLY.
My Post is neither RACIST nor meant to incite PANIC. I am URGING HOWEVER THAT “WE ALL ACT TOGETHER – just as … in the time of War.!”
To Quote General S. Patton – “A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week” — George Patton.
FIRST: We need to act just as thE U.S. did after the attack on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1947. “A Day that will (has) lived in infamy.” Everyone put it into High Gear! We need to respond FINANCIALLY, ECONOMICALLY, INDUSTRIALLY and HEALTH CARE SYSTEM “WISE.” We need to ACT NOW!
SECOND: WE NEED TO MOBILIZE ALL OF INDUSTRY to first supply the needs of the Medical / Health Care sectors (The War). WE NEED TO HIT THIS VIRUS HARD NOW! QUARANTINES. EMERGENCY MEASURES (Maybe areas of Martial Law?), Border Closures, SUPPLY CHAINS (Food, Medical, Industrial. Logistics and Transportation).
All of this in an effort to (1) Hit the Pandemic hard and quickly, limit Community Transmission and SHORTEN THE DURATION and RATE of DEATH from COVID19.
And (2) We need to bring our Critical Manufacturing and Supply Chains home … back to a Country and Countries that are trusted, are transparent and forthcoming.
Can we even imagine what 10? 20? 30? days would have meant to those suffering in Italy, New York and around the globe today? How many lives may have been saved if only the CCP (Communist Chinese Party) had acted sooner?
What if the CCP had acted and not suppressed news reports before/ during the time when Hundreds of Thousands of unsuspecting Chinese gathered during Chinese New Year with Friends and Family and then returned “home”? (Current COVID19 Count over 225,000 infected; over 8,800 Dead in China alone, 13,000 and climbing Worldwide)
How many flights could have been diverted? How many self-directed quarantines could have made the difference? Dare we say that those who have lost close friends and loved ones due to CCP’s lack of honesty and forthright action have a case for Criminal Negligence? **
Again, Quoting a perhaps forgot but very successful and War Winning General from WWII – “A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week” — George S. Patton
“TIME – IS OF THE ESSENCE” to save LIVES!
THIRD: WE NEED TO GET CASH INTO THE HANDS OF MAIN STREET, SMALL BUSINESSES, THE LITTLE GUY to bridge the gap, so that as we shut down the U.S (and other Countries) via QUARANTINE to (1) STOP the spread, to provide (2) TIME for our Health Care and Medical Communities to (3) Respond and Ramp up ……. so that WE ALL WILL SURVIVE, Financially, Economically and Health Wise.
FOURTH: TO SURVIVE AND RETURN TO OUR ROBUST FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC STATUS (Worldwide) PRIOR TO THE CHINESE OUTBREAK and the DECLARATION OF WAR, OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (US Treasury and The Fed) NEED TO PROVIDE MASSIVE LIQUIDITY (Merge the Treasury and Fed Bank Balance Sheets) TO THE SYSTEM BOTH NOW AND POST COVID 19.
DO IT!! DO IT NOW!!!
What ‘We’ Can Do
• SELF-QUARANTINE! STAY HOME! DO NOT GO OUT UNLESS NECESSARY (Food, Medical) Rule: At least 6 Feet apart in Public Places. ONLY Groups smaller than 10. YES THIS ALSO INCLUDES YOU YOUNG PEOPLE! You make think you are “bullet-proof” YOU ARE NOT!
• Wash/Clean Your Hands, Face, Clothes and Surfaces
• Check on and Look-In on those MOST VULNERABLE in our “At Risk Population”
• Cover Cough and Sneezes. BE CONSIDERATE!
And most IMPORTANT …
Please be Kind to One Another … DO WHAT YOU CAN, WHERE YOU CAN, HOW YOU CAN. PRACTICE RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS!! 😀😀😀❤️❤️❤️
PLEASE SHARE FREELY AND AS YOU DEEM APPROPRIATE.
– GOD BLESS
