20200324: CoronaCRISIS/China Crisis Daily Thread + Dear Congress, Please Get Your Act Together

For the time being, given our national emergency, we are switching to DAILY COVID-19/China Virus threads instead of weekly threads. Your comments and updates are most welcome. PLEASE continue to post your valuable information, hard source links, and local observations within these Daily Threads. Additionally, we will try to include links to government and official pressers, so those who no longer have cable can remain informed.

We’ll get through this crisis, together. As a group, there is probably no one better prepared than we are.

For our newcomers: The Q Tree community has been diligent in covering the threat of Coronavirus, COVID19, Wuhan FLU. We started accumulating information about this virus in mid-late January, in what became almost weekly threads. We’ve been weeks, if not months, ahead of MSM outlets to vet rumors and other medical papers, etc.

Primary Update Links:

In our past weekly threads, we assembled information on the following:

  • Primary update links. The dashboard from Johns Hopkins which counts “official” cases all over the world, the CDC, and WHO, and includes the links for our past threads.
  • Hard Data Medical Information- Explanation about testing, reliance on China for drugs, analysis of NE Journal of Medicine results and other published papers.
  • Vaccine and theraputics (new/old drugs to alleviate symptoms) news and updates 
  • Trump Administration response (the timeline and links to various agencies)
  • China Responses, timelines, research, attempt to cover actions, or secrecy in results discovered.
  • An aggregate of info/responses from other countries, listed by country.
  • Economic impact from around the world. A change in economic activity will indicate a “return to normal”.
  • Speculation/debunking on how the virus started
  • Media Bias, political response, and debunking section, like the article from AP News, overt bias from Politico, inflammatory headlines, etc.  
  • Other medical info to boost immune system, herbal remedies, ways to keep your house clean and NOT spread the virus to others. Excellent information to incorporate into daily lifestyle.
  • Hard links for OTHER valuable sources/blogs and a brief sentence or two about what they provide
  • Other news items

Our weekly updates. timelines, collection of valuable information, can be found here:

Please try to keep your sense of humor during this National Emergency, and remember, patience is a virtue.

Love to all!

I introduce you to the Godzilla of Hydroxychloroquine!

    1. Unless I know who is calling, or expect a call, I don’t answer my cell. They can leave a message.

      Have not had a home phone since 2006. Don’t miss it.

  1. Fauci still looks very tired. My wife noticed it – it’s like he’s having microbursts of sleep just standing there. You have to be very tired to fall asleep standing up!

    Said this is going to be a short one today – between Dr. Fauci and the town hall today that’s probably a good thing.

  2. Birx – Everybody who left New York should self quarantine for next 14 days!!!!
    People are leaving for Florida, the Carolinas, other places.
    56-60% of cases coming from NY metro, 30% mortality rate.

    Fauci – reiterated people leaving NY, suspects they’re infected, lots of drugs queued up in clinical trials besides chloroquine

    1. OH BOY – the influx of those fleeing from New Yorkers, New Jersey, etc. that means all the FL seniors are going to have to stay home or be extremely careful for many more days.

      Look out below, Smiley! Stay safe!

      1. Read last week, probably still accurate. Makes sense. Quickest and cheapest, IMO.

        Primary is wire to bank used on 2018 tax year return. IF that ACH (?) bounces, closed account, mail check to address on tax return.

        If no bank used in 2018 tax return, mail check to address used on return.

  5. By talking encouragingly about Easter, we are learning that the 15 days won’t be long enough and we will go another 19 days/~3 weeks to Easter – 5 weeks total. However, he hopes maybe sooner but might be longer.

    Looking forward to Easter as good news v. telling us the bad news on Monday that 15 days was not enough it as great way to shift the conversation and control the narrative to a positive.

    Opening Up the Country….seems to mean that the national recommendations will change and be more flexible for various recommendations for various levels of infection case #s and various rates of growth. The Governors will then take the best course for their own state and their own state’s situation.

    Opening up the country = removing country wide recommendations

    1. MM – they are not talking about the whole country – NY, CA and WA won’t be over it sufficiently, barring a miracle.

      We also have people fleeing from NY and NJ that are being asked to self quarantine for 2 weeks – and unless they faithfully do so, they could seed the country again!

    2. I’m guessing things will lossen by next Monday. Regions and hot areas continue quasi quarantine. Ideally by Easter most every where will be open. NYC and a couple very hot spots really need to lock down. Flights out of NY need to STOP.

    1. “What can we do?”

      Well one can start by learning to do their gematria correctly. Never is the count of letters included in the result (and you don’t multiply it by a hundred, either).

      Also, the way every ancient culture except the Romans did it, would look like this: A=1, B=2, C=3,…I=9, J=10, K=20 (not eleven), L=30….R=90, S=100, T=200, U=300…Z=800. (Except, of course, they’d use their own alphabet, Hebrew, Greek, Georgian, Russian, etc. The Russians used this system clear up until the early 1700s in fact.) The Romans, of course, only assigned numbers to some of their letters (I, V, X, L, C, D, M). Assigning Q=17 is not the way it was done.

      This was used not just to calculate the number a word represented, but to actually represent numbers themselves; if we were using this system instead of “Arabic” numerals, we’d render 312 as UJB (300+10+2). Someone reading the text would see UJB come up out of nowhere, realize it was nonsense, and therefore had to be a number. The practice of taking a word that DOES make sense, like someone’s name, and adding it all up and seeing some sort of mystical consequence in the answer, is gematria.

      Of course some followers of Q do this sort of bastardized gematria shown above with O=15 instead of 60, then do completely non-gematria things like counting the number of letters involved and treating it as a digit in the hundreds place. They do things like that just to make things come out to the answer they want.

      The triple six in Revelation (or 616 in some manuscripts) is a reference to the letters of the Antichrist’s “real” name, turned into their numerical values and added up. (I am told that NERON CAESAR, rendered in Hebrew, adds up properly, and he was the emperor at the time St. John had his revelation.)

  6. Well I’ve been meaning to share some more Michigan tidbits, but I’m always (at least) a day late & a dollar+ short!

    3-16 we got a call from the dentist to confirm the keeping of a 3-17 appt, my son wanted to wait/reschedul but we were to keep the 3-30 appt & we’d schedule any more needed that day.

    3-17 or 18 dentist called to reschedule 3-30 appt as they are now only seeing emergencies, now appt is 4-7

    3-19 or 20 dentist called to reschedule the rescheduled 4-7 appt to 4-14 based on MI governor’s directives

    3-19 or 20? MI governor announces they will allow houses of worship to gather in groups of 50+ at religious organization’s discretion w/no punitive gov’t interference

    around those same dates, iirc, non-essential workers are to stay home & no gathering in groups of 10+, take out & delivery of food still OK, OK to exercise outside but only in 1s or 2s

    Monday 3-23 MI Governor issues “Stay Home Stay Safe” (shelter in place) for all but essential personnel

    In our family all employees but special needs son (who works at local community center which was closing) are in essential industries & so far can continue working their normal schedules. Our son who is a hydraulic technician was working 10 hour shifts plus Saturday last week so can no longer work overtime. Special son is to miss the next 2 Mondays & then get boosted to 2 days per week (as they’ve been considering for months) & the week back to get to work Tues & Fri that lifting the Governor’s order week, he’ll regularly work Mon & Fri, 3 hours each. Presumably his restart date is subject to change based on Gov’s orders. He cried about this a few times Mon. Oh his girlfriend & her mom made him a cloth mask which he took with him & wore at work on Mon (he’s immuno-compromised post liver transplant & on anti-rejection meds).

    Tues 3-24 MI governor extends the school closing directive for another week, into mid April. There are discussions about whether or not to close schools for the rest of the school year. Daughter’s college classes, all moved to online, have resumed this week, though there are still some bugs to work out. Heard that Oakland University was requiring people on campus to vacate & they were opening up their dorms & other places on campus for overflow medical needs from a local college they’re partnered with.

    Tues 3-24 5:30am husband’s co-worker pulled over by a cop while on his way to work. Cop tells him he’s Not going to work. Co-worker shows him the letter from the company indicating he’s in an essential industry & cop takes 15 minutes (consulting w/ higher ups in his cop car?) to decide to let him go. Had previously heard on the radio that Cops would NOT be stopping people & questioning their activities but would check on businesses that were open to confirm they were Allowed to be working…

    Yesterday local radio host on WJR displays his pseudo Trump derangement syndrome & calls into question President’s plan to reassess things in a week & work on doing “2 things at once” by protecting medically vulnerable & simultaneously opening the economy up more & getting people back to work. Mon he gets a caller who complains about people in Home Depot & talk host (Guy Gordon) gets defensive because he went to home supply store to get items to repair & clean up some type of water leak. Tue. GG takes another virtue signalling Home Depot nazi who is complaining about all the people “buying paint to paint their spare room” (aka use their God given freedoms to get projects done at home when forced away from work sites) & GG appears to jump on the band wagon & they both lament about this causing the virus spread…Also GG reports that almost 90% of ChinaVirus cases are in Metro Detroit & outlying counties are getting nervous as SE Michiganders head Up North to vacation homes & possibly spread the virus. He entertains & gives too much time to excessively nervous callers who think Trump is unhinged, unstable, & irresponsible to even consider opening up the economy while the virus is crippling some communities. GG has bi-polar responses that snarkily question Trump & seem to put doctors Above the President in making these national calls & then expounds on the practicalities of opening up economic activities in counties with minimal if any CV issues…sigh…have to turn it off to keep BP stable…

    On a pleasant personal note our daughter works at a local restaurant doing kitchen prep & gets 50% off while working & 20% off when off duty. Last night she was to attempt to purchase enough food for our in-house family of 5 at 50% off, if possible, & we’d reimburse the costs. She came home w/ 2 large bags of food last night & I’m like “Oh Great, your manager let you buy more than one meal at 50% off!!!” She’s like “It’s even better than that, the manager bought the food & gave it to us!” It turns out that our daughter rarely, if ever, gets food (or even takes breaks) while working, even when offered free food. I guess the manager was thanking her, & by extension our family, for all her great hard work. Daughter used her skills to re-heat & augment what she’d brought home so when the guys got home from work we had a hot feast of a meal! Thank you Lord & thank you “Bunny Boo”!!!

  7. On another Michigan note we decided to have House Church on Sunday & it was great…& perhaps somewhat New Testament.

    There were 8 of us all together, 5 who live here, son & his wife, & a significant other. Daughter lead worship on guitar while husband played bass on 4 songs they’d worked on for a bit earlier.

    Opening songs: All Who Are Worthy; I Can Sing of Your Love Forever; & Oh, Come to the Altar. Closing Song: Blessed Be Your Name.

    All who wanted to shared Bible verses that had been speaking to them lately, 3/4 of us shared something. I shared Isaiah 41: 8-13, focusing on verse 10 & Psalm 27, focusing on verses 1-5, 11, 13-14. I didn’t have time to also share Isaiah 26: 1-13, focusing on verses 1-4, 7-9, & 12.

    My husband shared a brief scripturally based message & we had a slight discussion. We opened & closed in prayer. In a smart move, since we were gathered in our living room & most present have/had some form of ADHD husband turned on TV w/ no volume & had soothing sea-scapes streaming video on. This allowed people to partially focus their attention on something during worship, reading, &/or sharing…

    Honestly this gathering was really great! I enjoyed it more than I’ve enjoyed church in Many years. I pointed out to everyone that no matter how bad things become in the future we can always have that kind of church whether we have access to instruments or Bibles. We can gather, even by 2s or 3s, & in secret if need be, & share scripture & worship from our hearts & minds & pray for each other. Be assured, He was in the midst of us…& it was uplifting!!!

    Tonight our middle son is participating in a Bible study via a video chat platform. He’s been attending this weekly guys Bible study for several months now. It’s a small group of 20 somethings so it’s great to see our young people following through on these initiatives on their own power!
