Researchers continue to study the novel coronavirus that causes Covid19. We are discovering more about how this disease is transmitted and how it affects the body.
For months we have been told the virus spreads in aerosol droplets that are inhaled by nearby persons. And that the virus lands on surfaces such as doorknobs, handrails, etc. Where it can remain communicable for hours or days. And we pick it up in our hands where it finds its way into our mouths.
Now with the results of more research into the community spread statistics. scientists have seen no statistical evidence that the active virus can actually be communicated off of surfaces in this way.
In fact in one WHO study conducted in May scientists found they had to have an estimated one million such particles on a petri dish to cultivate any "live" virus from the sample.
In other words: those viral particles on those surfaces, metal, cloth, or paper cash, are not dangerous. Turns out studies of community spread bear out the facts of this experiment:
The disease is overwhelmingly passed through aerosol droplets as people talk or relate. Within 6 feet of each other. Without masks. And it can still take up to 15 minutes of this close interaction. Or just one big cough well directed before it's likely to be transmitted.
So it's no accident that in countries where mask wearing is mandatory (and not dismissed as a political plot) the virus has been completely or mostly eliminated. And in countries where masking is discouraged by fanatical leaders? The virus is marching unchecked through the population.
That would be mostly Brazil and the USA.
It is also determined that up to 80% of contagion occurs at "super spreader " events. Large indoor gatherings where air conditioning, lack of the sun's UV rays, and poor ventilation combine to create an invisible fog of viral droplets that can infect hundreds at one event. Especially when the majority are not wearing masks.
Examples: Church services with lots of singing, Children's parties of 20 or more, Graduation parties.
And the prize winner? Donald Trump's political rallies.
These and similar right wing gatherings with the president continuing to denigrate mask wearing will make sure that America remains the pariah as other nations mask and test their way back to normal. He will die before Trump and his murderous hordes finish destroying our country.
But what would you expect of a Russian agent who has been hired to destroy our country?
Read the Muller report sometime. It will explain what is happening now.
And now the good news!
Trumpites are all racist ignorant monsters.
Happy to lock thousands of innocent children in cages. Happy to see our entire planet demolished to feed the billionaires.
Trumpites are a clear and present danger to our country and our planet.
So let's sign a thank you card for our president. He who is clearly doing his best to eliminate this menace ... One political rally at a time.
How can we help our president in this time of crisis?
I would be happy to do a phone bank:
"Oh yes! That Tulsa rally was fabulous! A life transforming experience!
Bring all your friends and families! Let's really support our president now!"
But some of us who have a conscience can perhaps wonder about the many thousands of non Trumpites, innocent bystanders, maybe even non Republicans, that will have to suffer and die for this man's glory.
Well he says he is a wartime president. And every war has its collateral damage. I guess you're right Donald. If we are going to heal this country, not only must most of your followers be killed or disabled ... Thousands of innocent people must also die. Donald understands this. He was a soldier once... Cadet bone spurs. Remember?
So let's get behind this president. Send your Trumpite friends to his rallies.
And then don't invite them to your house if you want the avenging Trump angel to pass over your house. And spare your family.
And if you'd like to be prepared for this deadly plague. Order my covid prep video.
