CGTN #ChinaFaces Chen Wei, a 54-year-old Chinese military medical scientist and a researcher at the Institute of Military Medicine under the Academy of Military Sciences, was awarded "the People's Hero," the national honorary title on Tuesday, for her outstanding commitment and contribution to the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic.
One day after the Chinese Lunar New Year in 2020, China's biggest holiday for family reunion, Chen was recalled to Wuhan, the then epicenter of the outbreak. She and her team wasted no time and worked in a makeshift lab for research and testing. And almost 50 days later, the first vaccine was ready for clinical trials. However, it was not the first time that Chen has stood at the front line against viruses over the past decades. In 2003, her team developed a nasal spray that helped protect medical staff against SARS viruses and in 2014 a vaccine for the deadly virus Ebola, which claimed over 10,000 lives worldwide. "It is the call of duty because I'm a person in uniform and I was obliged to do all that I did," she said when speaking of her job.

The Wall Street Journal. Recent estimates suggest the new coronavirus is deadlier than the seasonal flu, though not as lethal as Ebola. Still, Covid-19 is killing more people than a number of deadlier diseases in part because it is more infectious.

Viva! - The Vegan Charity An incredible three in four deadly infectious diseases cross from animals to people. This means exploiting and consuming animals is causing the vast majority of infectious diseases on our planet, mainly from wet markets and factory farms.
Just like the wet markets in Asia, factory farms are full of viruses and bacteria that can mutate and cause billions of deaths all over the world. SARS, MERS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Ebola, and even HIV have already shown us the devastation our current treatment of animals can cause. We can't risk it happening again.
It is vital that we choose vegan to help end global pandemics, to protect the world's wildlife, to save our fragile planet and for all of us. This is our opportunity to change before it's too late. Choose vegan.
Home | Dutch Caribbean Economists Pandemie (COVID19), een negatieve externaliteit?
Kan de uitbraak van het Coronavirus (COVID 19) worden gezien als een vorm van een negatieve externaliteit? Welke vragen kunnen we stellen aan de hand van deze gebeurtenis?
De ‘World Health Organization’ (WHO) heeft op 11 maart 2019 de COVID 19 als pandemie verklaard. Men spreekt van een pandemie wanneer er sprake is van een nieuwe ziekte die mensen infecteert met zware klachten als gevolg en waarbij deze zich makkelijk verspreid onder de wereldbevolking.
De term negatieve externaliteit wordt in de economie gebruikt wanneer de consumptie of productie van goederen onbedoelde kosten/schade veroorzaakt aan een derde partij die niet betrokken is bij de transactie. Als voorbeeld wordt vaak gewezen op milieuvervuiling. Dat de effecten van de huidige pandemie schade veroorzaakt aan de wereldeconomie en die van Curaçao staat vast. Maar wat deze daling in economische activiteit concreet zal betekenen op de korte en lange termijn is vooralsnog onduidelijk en onzeker.
Is het nu het moment om stil te staan bij de relatie tussen de mensen en dieren binnen ons ecosysteem als onderdeel van ons economie?
Aangezien het virus die de huidige pandemie veroorzaakt zijn oorsprong kent in dieren (met name vleermuizen) en bekend is dat de eerste gevallen in Wuhan (China) zijn geconstateerd waar op de markt aldaar vleermuizen ter consumptie worden verkocht, is de verdenking sterk dat dit de oorzaak is voor de COVID 19 pandemie. Maar eerder hebben we ook vergelijkbare uitbraken gekend zoals SARS (ook veroorzaakt door het Coronavirus, de Varkensgriep (veroorzaakt door het Influenza virus, en de Ebola uitbraak in 2014 (veroorzaakt door de Ebola virus). Gelukkig was er niet in al deze genoemde gevallen sprake van een pandemie, maar wel blijken ze allen een gezamenlijke oorsprong te hebben, namelijk bij dieren.
Al ruim 10 duizend jaar geleden is de mens begonnen met het domesticeren van dieren, hetgeen toen al vergezeld ging met infectieziektes. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de mazelen. Bij de start van de industriële revolutie rond 1900, dacht men deze infectieziektes onder controle te hebben, onder ander vanwege de ontdekking van antibiotica. Mede wegens deze geruststelling is destijds ook de bio-industrie en de productie van vlees en vleesproducten geïntensiveerd, dit laatste met voedselzekerheid als motief. Echter, na 1975 begon de trend van het aantal doden als gevolg van nieuwe infectieziektes, vooral veroorzaakt door nieuwe virussen, weer te stijgen.
Opmerkelijk is dus dat deze stijging plaatsvond kort na het intensiveren van de bio-industrie. Deze intensivering houdt in dat de dieren dicht op elkaar opgesloten zitten; een ideale omstandigheid voor uitbreiding van micro-organismen. Het is duidelijk dat een steeds terugkerende uitbraak van een infectieziekte als een negatieve externaliteit van deze industrie kan worden beschouwd, gelet op de impact op de volksgezondheid. De uitbreiding van micro-organismen wordt op haar beurt weer ingedamd door het grootschalig gebruik van antibiotica bij dieren. Het grootschalig gebruik van antibiotica bij dieren op zich kan ook een tweede externaliteit teweegbrengen. Immers, de bacteriën welke blootgesteld worden aan deze antibiotica bouwen op termijn resistentie op tegen deze antibiotica. Hierdoor worden de behandelingsmogelijkheden nader beperkt.
Het voorgaand overziend rijzen er nu een aantal belangrijke vragen waar we met z’n allen bij stillen moeten staan.
• Zouden we in het kader van het bovenstaande niet moeten stilstaan bij onze relatie met dieren, met name onze consumptie van vlees?
• Zullen de activiteiten van de bio-industrie als gevolg hiervan afnemen waardoor de genoemde externaliteiten ook zullen afnemen?
• Weegt het belang van deze industrie als economische eenheid zwaarder dan volkgezondheid, waardoor we voorlopig alleen aandacht hebben voor minder effectieve secundaire maatregelen zoals behandeling en vaccinatie ter voorkoming van een volgende uitbraak?
Wat vind u van deze vragen? Laat het ons weten in de comments!

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Coronavirus Update
CHICKEN LITTLE WARNS “THE SKY IS FALLING!”
by Steven F. Hotze, MD
“The sky is falling!” is the message about the coronavirus COVID-19 that the Chicken Little wannabes, the government health care bureaucrats, Fake News media, conventional doctors and politicians, are frantically broadcasting to the gullible public. These officials are now in the limelight, and they love the public exposure. These elites can now exert their power over the masses by creating irrational fear and mass hysteria. They are shutting down businesses, churches, schools and all public events and commanding the population to lock down in quarantine. They are exerting unconstitutional authority and impinging upon your civil rights and liberties.
This situation demonstrates how easily people will give up their liberty for the illusion of safety and security. Rather than placing their faith in God and taking responsibility for their own health, most people are willing to place their faith in Big Government. Be wary when someone appears and says, “I am with the government and I am here to help you.” The government creates more problems than it solves. This coronavirus situation is a case in point.
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai holds a doctorate in Biological Engineering from M.I.T. He specializes in studies and research of the immune system. He wrote that “the coronavirus fear mongering by the Deep State will go down in history as one of the biggest frauds to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, and push mandated medicine.”
Coronaviruses were first discovered in the 1960s. Corona means crown and the coronaviruses have crown like spikes on their surfaces. There are numerous strains of the coronavirus (CoV) and seven that can infect people. It is a type of virus that can be transmitted between animals and humans, a zoonotic virus. Some coronaviruses cause the common cold, while others cause more serious illnesses. This is not the first time a strain of the coronavirus has caused a health scare.
The SARS-CoV coronavirus was the cause of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome in 2002. The MERS-CoV coronavirus caused the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in 2012. The current coronavirus, COVID-19, was originally named SARS-CoV 2. It is a strain that is antigenically similar to SARS-CoV.
There have been other viruses creating public health concerns, the Bird flu in 2005 and the Swine flu pandemic in 2009. Then there was the Ebola virus panic between 2014-2016 and the Zika virus scare in 2018. It seems that every election cycle brings to light another life-threatening disease.
There have never been widespread closings of businesses, churches and schools due to an epidemic in the U.S. During the Obama administration the Swine flu (H1N1) epidemic occurred between April 12, 2009 – April 10, 2010. The CDC estimated that there were 60,800,000 cases of the Swine Flu in the U.S. and 12,469 deaths. Nothing shut down. Although Obama did not declare a National Emergency until October 24, 2009, 6 months after the Swine flu (H1N1) had been recognized, he was given praise from the press for his handling of it.
Folks, it seems that this coronavirus scare has been touted as a health crisis by the Fake News media, by the government health care bureaucrats, by conventional medicine and the politicians, because they want you to think that they care about your health. It appears that what they really want to do is to expand their power, control and authority.
The Real Health Risk – The Annual Flu Epidemic
The coronavirus pales in significance when compared to the annual flu epidemic. If they cared about your health, then why haven’t they acted to stop the flu epidemic which occurs every year? This coronavirus pseudo crisis is all about politics and expanding government control over your life, and about money.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there have only been 54,453 presumptive cases of the coronavirus in the United States as of March 24, 2020 at 4 PM. That is 1 in 1/6000 (.017%) Americans who presumpti
ODYS Global Hey ODYSSIANS!
We really hope that you and your family are safe.
Here at ODYS GLOBAL we have been working remotely, as a startup, from day 1, so not much restructuring required now amidst the crazy COVID-19 times.
Winston Churchill once said: "Never let a good crisis go to waste", so I want to share some thoughts on this type of ANTI-FRAGILITY and reveal why despite all the tragic times we're witnessing, we MUST remain optimistic.
While small and medium brick and mortar businesses are definitely suffering huge losses and some will go bankrupt, there is a big chance the internet business medium will thrive as a result of people working and shopping from home.
➡️ Amazon Hiring 100k Workers
- WSJ.com has just reported Amazon is currently hiring over 100k warehouse and delivery workers, which means more and more people are currently re-considering the way they shop online. In fact, people are soon going to re-consider the way they live and the internet and online shopping is going be a very important part of that.
➡️ Recent 100k Site Flip
- One of our clients has recently reported a 100k+ site flip on a 1.5k USD domain they bought at the beginning of 2019. The anonymous investor is a PhD university professor looking to diversify his income streams. This shows you how fast the world we live in is changing and how quickly people tend to adapt to new realities.
➡️ Survival and Prepping Niches
- While the spike in traffic/clicks/sales for survival and prepping niches may be temporary, we highly recommend everyone to have at least one site going after these type of topics. Our own online assets in these verticals has seen MASSIVE GROWTH since COVID-19 got in the news headlines all over the place. ODYS clients are reporting old EBOLA CRISIS related sites earning a killing as people are getting ready for times to come.
Here's a list of some of the best survival domains from ODYS that one should take advantage of:

China Current: A dynamic storytelling journey to 'see'â and 'hear'â China first-hand. For Ebola and SARS, community leadership was pivotal to solving these crises. Now, in the midst of COVID-19, it is once again important to engage community leaders—not only by spreading a message to wash hands and take other precautions but to tell why they’re important—and help ingrain healthy habits at the community level.

＃MERS from Jordan in Middle East in 2012 and later a disaster in South Korea with a 35% fatality rate. 186 were infected and 38 died in South Korea.It was also a strain of coronavirus.
On October 20, 2010, an outbreak of #cholera was confirmed in Haiti for the first time in more than a century. This cholera outbreak is the worst in recent history with over 665,000 cases and 8,183 deaths.
2009 ＃H1N1 Swine flu, which was first detected in US, infected 60.8 million people and killed between 151,700 and 575,400 worldwide during the first year the virus circulated.
＃Ebola outbreak in West Africa started in Guinea then moved across land borders to Sierra Leone and Liberia. From 2014 to 2016, a total of 28,616 cases of EVD (Ebola virus disease) and 11,310 deaths were reported in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone alone.
The world has seen disasters and stood with the affected countries without declaring their citizens outcasts from the rest of humanity.
So why demonize the Chinese over coronavirus?
Let's stand with humanity like never before by standing with China, and especially the Chinese people.

Strive Masiyiwa #Urgent pause: : Wash your hands, open your hearts
__Prepare, put in place safeguards, but don't panic.
I think most of you know that a month or so ago, a deadly epidemic broke out in Wuhan, China that’s now infected people across about 25 countries so far. I am not going to cite statistics of how many people have died or been confirmed as infected by the "Novel Coronanvirus" in the past month. These numbers seem to be changing rapidly. No cases have been confirmed in Africa yet, to my knowledge, but the Global Health Emergency is deeply impacting the continent and the whole world.
People are suffering, flights are being cancelled, travelers are being stranded, ex-pat workers are being sent back home from Wuhan (Hubei Province). Families and cities are being isolated, businesses are being closed temporarily, health workers are being inundated and in many places lack necessary protective supplies. (There is no known vaccine yet but teams are working round the clock to develop one).
So what can WE do to help? This is a time for nations and people to work together, not in isolation, as we learned when we first started fighting the Ebola epidemic in 2014 and global agencies have been doing in the DRC since mid-2018.
Today, let's start with what YOU can do, the basics, and what you shouldn’t do. Most of these health guidelines apply at all times to keep you and your family, school and place of business healthy.
First of all, what are the symptoms of what they call the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)?
At first, symptoms are not very different from the flu or common cold. They include:
Fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath/breathing difficulties. This can turn into bronchitis, severe pneumonia and/or liver or kidney failure, then death. Those particularly at risk seem to be people with weak immune systems, cardiopulmonary disease, infants and older adults.
How do you help stop the spread of this disease and many others? This is IMPORTANT:
# It is believed that from a few days after you are exposed to maybe 14 days later, (the “incubation period”) you can have been infected by the Coronavirus and not know it. This means before you start showing symptoms you can be spreading the virus without knowing it.
__Be smart. Have you traveled where there has been an outbreak of the Coronavirus? Then be vigilant!
# Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to avoid spreading the virus to others. (This applies for any kind of flu or illness, by the way).
# Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
# If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or a fixed elbow, not your hands. (You should do this in any case, whatever the situation!) Discard the tissue in a closed bin. Do not just throw it on the ground! Then wash your hands.
# Avoid close contact with anyone with a fever or a cough.
# Avoid contact with sick animals.
# Do NOT touch your face, which passes germs to your nose, mouth and/or eyes!
# If you suspect you might be infected with the Coronavirus, (you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing) seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider.
# Avoided unnecessary travel and do NOT travel publicly while you think you might be infected… not in a taxi, bus, train, plane, an Uber or any vehicle with other passengers! And don’t go to work or school. Avoid crowded places in general.
# If you choose to wear a face mask, be sure to cover mouth and nose, then avoid touching mask once it’s on. Immediately discard single-use masks after each use and wash hands after removing mask.
# When visiting live markets in areas currently experiencing cases of Coronavirus, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals.
# Eat only well-cooked food. Eating raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safe
