“The reason why Germany has so few deaths compared to the number of infected people can be explained by the fact that we carry out an extremely large number of laboratory diagnostic tests,” said Mr. Drosten, who heads the Institute of Virology at Berlin’s Charite University Hospital.

But moments later, FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn cautioned that chloroquine had not yet been approved for treating COVID-19.

The next epidemic is coming. Here’s how we can make sure we’re ready.

(27.04.2018)

Watching Hollywood thrillers, you’d think the world was pretty good at protecting the public from deadly microorganisms. We like to believe that somewhere out there, there is a team ready to spring into action – equipped with the latest and best technologies.

Government agents like Jack Bauer in 24. Harvard professors like Robert Langdon in Inferno. And WHO epidemiologists like Dr. Leonora Orantes in Contagion – who even risked getting kidnapped as she pursued “Patient Zero.”

In the real world, though, the health infrastructure we have for normal times breaks down very rapidly during major infectious disease outbreaks. This is especially true in poor countries. But even in the U.S., our response to a pandemic or widespread bioterror attack would be insufficient.

Unterrichtung durch die Bundesregierung: Bericht zur Risikoanalyse im Bevölkerungsschutz 2012

(21.12.2012)

SZENARIO

1. Definition der Gefahr/Ereignisart

Eine Pandemie ist eine weltweite Ausbreitung eines Krankheitsgeschehens.

Außergewöhnliches Seuchengeschehen kann natürliche Ursachen haben, z. B.:
– Wiederauftreten bekannter Krankheitserreger (Masern, Typhus)
– importierte Fälle von Erkrankungen mit seltenen hochkontagiösen und/oder hochpathogenen Erregern (Ebola, Lassa-Fieber)
– Pandemien mit Variationen von bekannten Erregern (Influenza-Pandemie)
– Auftreten neuartiger Krankheitserreger (Schweres Akutes Respiratorisches Syndrom, SARS)

In Ausnahmefällen kann Seuchengeschehen aber auch auf akzidentelle oder intentionale Freisetzung zurückgehen, z. B.:
– akzidentelle Freisetzung beispielsweise durch einen Laborunfall (wie bei einzelnen Fällen nach der SARS-Pandemie oder die H1N1-Influenza 1977, die sogenannte „Russische Grippe“, die vermutlich Folge einer Laborfreisetzung war (Scholtissek et al., 1978; Zimmer and Burke, 2009))
– intentionale Freisetzung im Bereich der Lebensmittelerpressung oder auch mit bioterroristischem Hintergrund (bekanntestes Beispiel sind hier die „Anthrax-Briefe“ in den USA 2001).

Das vorliegende Szenario beschreibt ein außergewöhnliches Seuchengeschehen, das auf der Verbreitung eines neuartigen Erregers basiert. Dem Szenario ist der zwar hypothetische Erreger „Modi-SARS“zu Grunde gelegt, dessen Eigenschaften im Informationsblatt (siehe Anhang) beschrieben sind und der sehr eng an das SARS-Virus angelehnt ist. Die Vergangenheit hat gezeigt, dass Erreger mit neuartigen Eigenschaften, die ein schwerwiegendes Seuchenereignis auslösen, plötzlich auftreten können. (z. B. SARS-Coronavirus [CoV], H5N1-Influenzavirus, Chikungunya-Virus, HIV). Ein aktuelles Beispiel für einen neu auftretenden Erreger ist ein Coronavirus („novel Coronavirus“), welches nicht eng mit SARS-CoV verwandt ist.

Up to 650 000 people die of respiratory diseases linked to seasonal flu each year

Up to 650 000 deaths annually are associated with respiratory diseases from seasonal influenza, according to new estimates by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US-CDC), the World Health Organization and global health partners.

This marks an increase on the previous global estimate of 250 000 – 500 000, which dates from over ten years ago and covered all influenza-related deaths, including cardiovascular disease or diabetes. The new figures of 290 000 – 650 000 deaths are based on more recent data from a larger, more diverse group of countries, including lower middle income countries, and exclude deaths from non-respiratory diseases.

September 30. 2004 Debate Transcript

KERRY: Thirty-five to forty countries in the world had a greater capability of making weapons at the moment the president invaded than Saddam Hussein. And while he’s been diverted, with 9 out of 10 active duty divisions of our Army, either going to Iraq, coming back from Iraq, or getting ready to go, North Korea’s gotten nuclear weapons and the world is more dangerous. Iran is moving toward nuclear weapons and the world is more dangerous. Darfur has a genocide.

The world is more dangerous. I’d have made a better choice.

LEHRER: New question. Two minutes, Senator Kerry. What is your position on the whole concept of preemptive war?

KERRY: The president always has the right, and always has had the right, for preemptive strike. That was a great doctrine throughout the Cold War. And it was always one of the things we argued about with respect to arms control.

Operation Northwoods was a 1962 plan by the U.S. Department of Defense to stage acts of simulated or real terrorism on US soil and against U.S. interests and then put the blame of these acts on Cuba in order to generate U.S. public support for military action against the Cuban government of Fidel Castro. As part of the U.S. government’s Operation Mongoose anti-Castro initiative, the plan, which was not implemented, called for various false flag actions, including simulated or real state-sponsored acts of terrorism on U.S. and Cuban soil.

Respondents who put themselves at the center of the political spectrum are the least supportive of democracy, according to several survey measures. These include views of democracy as the “best political system,” and a more general rating of democratic politics. In both, those in the center have the most critical views of democracy.

Some of the most striking data reflect respondents’ views of elections. Support for “free and fair” elections drops at the center for every single country in the sample. The size of the centrist gap is striking. In the case of the United States, fewer than half of people in the political center view elections as essential.

(18.04.205)

Inhalte des Lehrmaterials:

Ein 5-Phasen-Plan (Papier „So what can we do? Counter-Jihad Op Design Model“, Juli 2011, hier gespiegelt). Zitat:

„Dieses Modell behauptet, dass der Islam dem Westen, und den Vereinigten Staaten im Besonderen, bereits den Krieg erklärt hat, wie es demonstrierbar ist über 30 Jahre gewalttätiger Geschichte. Es ist daher unlogisch weiter nach unseren gegenwärtigen strategischen Modellen zu verfahren, die annehmen, es gäbe mögliche Optionen für Gemeinsamkeiten („common ground“) und eine Sperre gegenüber der muslimischen Ummah ohne annähernd ´totalen Krieg´ zu führen“.

Der 5-Phasen-Plan nimmt an, dass Phase 1 (eine Abschreckung des Islam) bereits vorbei und gescheitert sei. Zitat:

„Manche hier als Vorschlag offerierte Aktionen werden in den Augen vieler, sowohl innerhalb als auch außerhalb der Vereinigten Staaten nicht als ´politisch korrekt´ angesehen werden (Beispiele: in Phase 3 vorgeschlagene Entscheidungspunkte..: Saudi Arabien mit Hungertod bedroht, Mekka und Medina zerstört. Islam reduziert zu Kultstatus).

Dieses Modell nimmt an, dass die Standards für bewaffnete Konflikte der Genfer Konvention IV von 1949 und ihre entsprechenden U.N.-Zusätze, wegen der gegenwärtigen allgemeinen Praktiken von islamischen Terroristen, nun global nicht länger relevant oder respektiert sind. Das würde die Option offenlassen, noch einmal wo immer notwendig den Krieg gegen eine Zivilbevölkerung zu führen (die historischen Präzedenzfälle von Dresden, Tokio, Hiroshima, Nagasaki sind anwendbar zur Zerstörung von Mekka und Medina DP in Phase III)“

RAY McGOVERN: A Non-Hack That Raised Hillary’s Hackles

(22.07.2019)

Independent forensic investigations demonstrated two years ago that the DNC emails were not hacked over the Internet, but had been copied onto an external storage device — probably a thumb drive. Additional work over recent months has yielded more evidence that the intrusion into the DNC computers was a copy, not a hack, and that it took place on May 23 and 25, 2016.

The DNC almost certainly knew what had happened — not only that someone with physical access to DNC computers had copied thousands of emails, but also which ones they had copied, and thus how prejudicial to the Clinton campaign they would be when they saw the light of day.

And so, candidate Clinton, the DNC, and the mainstream media (forever quoting anonymous “current and former intelligence officials”) appear to have colluded, deciding the best defense would be a good offense.
